It is not long ago that the Public Servants in Kenya had to go through what they called the “lifestyle audit”. These days the authorities and the allies of the President Uhuru Kenyatta is not shockingly targeting Deputy President William Ruto. They are airing out his laundry and working on overtime to humiliate him. This has been a long time coming but it’s well planned. Just like they blocked from leaving for Uganda last time too.
DP Ruto has made his bed and he got to sleep in it. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean that he should be the only one. Yes, DP Ruto has misused the offices of government and built his empire while being a High Ranking Official. However, who hasn’t at this point?
It is not like Ruto is an exemption. If you would look across the board of all parties, stations and counties of Kenya. I am sure the politicians have done their schemes, tenders and grand corruption cases. Therefore, airing him out only shows that the elites and the dynasties are targeting him. They are trying to weaken his campaign and resolve ahead of the elections.
What is worthwhile to consider… is that Ruto was the DP and if he could do this to him. They can unleash the same machinery against anyone else. The state and all it’s authorities can go after and seek to mock anyone who opposes it. There will be no remedies or no sort of injunction to stop it.
It is like we are supposed to forget all the corruption scandals and everyone involved in the Jubilee Party. Ruto was a part of group of thieves and they all dined in the den of thieves. The den of thieves was the Parliament, State House and where-ever else the government resides. That is why it wasn’t just the anointed TangaTanga ones, but all the godly men of Kenyatta too.
Yes, I believe Ruto should answer for his crimes against the state. However, the same should also all the other culprits as well. Not only Ruto, but Kenyatta and all of his anointed appointment over the years.
If they are airing out his guards and owned plots. Maybe, all the other appointments, Cabinet Secretaries, MPs and Senators should consider doing the same. So, they can show how suddenly all of them has a massive wealth bump over the years. It would be sincere, but also undermine their efforts and speeches. As they speaks as preachers and promises salvation, but only asks for thirties from the listening crowds.
That is why Ruto shouldn’t be alone with the lifestyle audit. No, he should be one out of many. If they are honest and sincere about it. Alas, this is a political game … and done on purpose ahead of the future polls.
Everyone should see it and it’s bloody obvious… there is no victory here and only a mockery attempt of the realities. Yes, we know the deal and there is no other way around it. The press and the newspapers might do the elites bidding. However, everyone should understand this and it’s done so openly. That’s why it’s not even cool, but a bidding ahead of the elections.
Ruto might be a con, but he was a con around other ones. That’s why the party shouldn’t leave him be. His men could easily undermine the others and if they are smart. They should unleash “lifestyle audits” of them as well. His not the only one who did and that doesn’t absolve of him of the crimes. Nevertheless, when the system is rigged. You just don’t point at one man, but the whole god-forsaken system. Peace.
