Secretary General Tuju:
Deputy President William Ruto whose on his second term and in a high ranking office. He should be cool, be happy and coordinate his affairs for the next election. Ruto should be busy operating as a high ranking official and actually govern. Especially, since he has a vital role in the Republic and is the Second in Line.
DP Ruto should know better, but within 48 hours he has gotten two Ls. First yesterday he was trying to act Presidential and had his COVID-19 Address. Where he had to add, why he hadn’t been together or jointly in the Pressers with the President. It was like a mirage and where he wasn’t adding anything new. Only that he had gone missing, but was working in silent.
The DP Ruto should just wash his hands and move on. Ask what needs the National Co-ordination Committee on Coronavirus Pandemic and CS Fred Matiang’i. See if he can gather needed help, policies and structures. DP Ruto could have done that in the backdoors and from Harambee House. Instead, his trying to make himself relevant and not becoming a super-sub for the government. As he should trust the President and his appointments. Even if that is humiliating. However, with yesterday’s Presser, his took a giant L.
Today, the DP Ruto took another L. This L is him loosing the grips of the Jubilee Party. The TangaTanga members and associates are sidelined. The change of members within the National Management Committee, which is changes wasn’t made with the National Executive Committee. At least that it how it seems, but it all without our knowledge. This is really a game-changer who shows whose ruling. As this was Gazetted on the 6th April 2020.
That DP Ruto goes into public with letters and statements on the party structure. Shows that the DP is taking Ls. His eating them and vomiting. His tired of being sidelined. His the second fiddle. The backburner and the one who isn’t able to coordinate together with President Kenyatta. He as a the Deputy should be able and know these moves.
DP Ruto as a Deputy and within the High Ranking Officials both in the Government and Party. Should know how these things works and know that this was bound to happen. That it would be changes and people would be revoked or get new appointments. Not like that wouldn’t happen. For a political savvy and hustler. He should know this and operate like this happens. Instead, his crying foul and not even talking within the Party. But sending a hostile letter and trying to swift the changes, which is already gazetted. Surely, because his partners and associates wasn’t appointed. If not the amount he needs. Instead, its more Kenyatta buddies and associates. That hurts the pride of TangaTanga and the DP.
The DP should sit down and talk with Kenyatta. His fishing for relevance. DP is trying to be vibrant and fresh. He can’t manoeuvrer or make a difference. Only cry havoc and loud. His the big-man without a voice or power. His the former flame, that has stopped to burn. The charcoal is going cold and there isn’t anything there to ignite it.
That is how it seems. DP Ruto continues to take Ls. He should take it on the chin and move-on. DP should reconfigure his game-plan and rethink the way he does things. Because, instead of showing strength. Its showing his weakness and his lack of control. Only showing that he struggles in the midst of a pandemic. That his on the inside, but feeling on the outside. Which is created because of the BBI and the whole political landscape created over the last year.
Ruto needs Kenyatta more than he will say. That is why he continues to take Ls … Peace.
“If this story we are being told about ‘Nobody Can Stop Reggae’ is what we are seeing; the ethnicity that is being preached in BBI rallies and the ethnic profiling of communities, and the hate and campaign of one community against the other. If that is the Reggae they are talking about, my friend Reggae shall stop. We shall stop it,” – William Ruto on the 22nd February 2020 at the Full Gospel Gatunduri Church in Embu
Before I continue, let me go biblical on the man of supposed wisdom. A man who used his career. Called a kingpin and a hustler. Whose now the Deputy President, whose been seen as Presidential Aspirant for over a decade and is fishing for the next election. I need to drop a few words of wisdom form the bible. Before dropping a few small snippets of his past. Because, when he calls out the BBI Rallies. His not the figure to do so. I know his hurt the TangaTanga doesn’t have a part in it. But this is just insincere from the man.
“How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye” (Luke 6:42, New International Version).
I am using the biblical reference for a reason, because there is little shown signs of hate speech or use of community against community. Something that Ruto was well aware of in the 2007 elections. However, he acts a fool now and tries to put that blame on others. Knowing well how that worked in the past.
His been considered the man in-charge of ODM “Pentagon” during the riots and demonstrations in the election cycle of 2007-08. Where his actions, coordination and everything sparked more violence and such. Not like he would state that at one point as he said this: “We are going to go on until Kibaki is gone,” said opposition politician William Ruto on Wednesday. “We are ready to die”. When addressing things like that. You can see, he got it in him if needed be. He can send out warnings, but it seems for a selfish act, than sincere care.
“Hon William Ruto MP, Eldoret North Constituency, Minister Planning, incitement, and financing the violence. In August 2007 he held a meeting with other senior ODM leaders in Kipkelion near Kericho including Sotik MP the late Lorna Laboso , the late Kipkalia K. Kones (Bomet), Kiprono L. J. Magerer (Kipkelion) , and Franklin Bett (Bureti) where the leaders resolved to carry out mass evictions of non Kalenjins from ‘their’ Rift Valley areas, particularly the Kikuyu and Abagusii. During an opening ceremony for the Seventh Day Adventist Church in a place called Mailing, he is alleged to have said that they would uproot the “sangari”, ‘shake off the soil’, ‘gather it together’ and ‘burn it’, in reference to ‘outsider’ communities”.
Therefore, he should look into himself and his own history before putting blame on the BBI. The BBI is something I don’t believe in, but that is whole another reasons than Ruto. He is just using this ploy, because his not apart of it. He is on the outside looking in, which is funny considering his the second in command. While his former party leader Raila Odinga has more of a key role in that.
Clearly, that hurts his pride. However, he cannot stop the Reggae, but he could participate. Instead of being so condensing. Which he does with spite, because that is what he has. Ruto should take it easy. He should chill out, maybe pray for his old sins before casting a stone. Even try take away his own plank in his eye.
But don’t anticipate that. The hustler doesn’t envision any soul searching. Only a twisted mind-frame for his own selfish cause. Peace.
