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.
It seems like its been a week of anger in concern of President Uhuru Kenyatta. It is hard to know why he suddenly gotten so mad. Maybe the fuzz of the beers or whatever he drinks doesn’t work anymore. Maybe some international organizations doesn’t want to borrow money without to many strings anymore. Who knows? But certainly, his not the happy, go lucky President of the past.
Kenyatta has gone after the ones claiming he was silent. He has targeted the ones who commented on the BBI Report before it was published. Uhuru has addressed the Tanga Tanga and Ruto allies. But not in friendliness, but straight forward attacks.
First with the silent quote, before the carrying own cross!
“They see me silent and think ‘he is just there and knows nothing. There is nothing I do not know and when the time comes, I know those who speak and they are not those who are speaking now. When the time comes, we will come and we will speak to you about what we will do. Mwaka mpya, we are with you. Let’s just first listen to their lectures. We are with you” – Uhuru Kenyatta on the 4th December 2019
“Please let us not politicize the war on corruption. When an individual is stealing public resources he doesn’t do so on behalf of his family or community. Therefore, anyone who is implicated should carry their own cross” – Uhuru Kenyatta on the 8th December 2019
With this he shows that his made and furious. Not that Kenyatta haven’t shown that before. He has whined before in public about his war on corruption. Not that its believable, because his closest cronies and known grand corruption scandals, which are not touched or have had any consequences. They have just gotten appointed elsewhere or gotten away scotch-free.
That is why his anger and frustration only seems forced. That the President only says this things, because he knows this is the right thing to say. However, his actions and his state of affairs is saying otherwise. That is why its not believable.
It is a mirage, that the President think he can create on his own. He thinks he can build it and make the image of it into reality. When its only a creation of his own imagination. The President can continue with his harsh words, warn and talk of sanctions. The President can continue to assault one part of the political elite or professions, but that wouldn’t change anything.
Kenyatta can act mad, can act sad or even glad. Nevertheless, the real actions are shown with what he borrows, the debt-ratio he leaves behind, the state deficit and the lack of good results from his time in office. That Kenyatta have little to show compared to the Big Four promise or the other pledges. Is because the state has been busy doing other things and securing their time to eat. The President has accepted it too, because he has eaten too.
That is why, the current outcry and stable battle against corruption goes old. When it really isn’t targeting the ones on the top, but the small fringe players and the ones whose has their turns. That is why Kenyatta can play and think PR speeches will save his behind. However, it will not. It is a lot of noise, but no real action. Peace.
Arresting Nairobi City County Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko will not solve anything. Neither will it change the ways this are done. Governor Sonko has just followed the footsteps of the previous governors and County Officials. Not it’s righteous or make it right to steal from the public coffers, but that is ingrained in the system. There was no significant change from Evans Kidero or anyone else before him.
The Presser of DPP Noordin Haji and his arrest order of Sonko will not do a big whoop in Nairobi. Than, the whole political elite and all the stakeholders has to change overnight. As they are working as business as usual. Yes, Sonko is a thief, his comrades is involved and his misused power. Nevertheless, in Nairobi, who hasn’t and who of the political elite isn’t benefitting at this current moment?
It is not like the slum-dwellers nor the citizens outside the posh areas feels significant changes from who reside as the Governor. It is just another head and another big-man, who has his time to eat. That isn’t inspiring nor justification for what Sonko did, but he does what everyone before him has done too in this role. Land grabbing, putting associates on County Boards and appointing friends as county officials. That is just what they do.
Before he got elected, he had already been convicted and a run-away prisoner too. So, he knows the rule of law and know what it entails to break it. He has served a stint behind bars and that’s not new to him.
If his corrupt, than his just as blimy and outrageous as plenty of the government officials and the ones running the Jubilee government. Not like the Jubilee have gone long and far between corruption scandals, neither the mere scope and the amounts of grand corruption too.
Therefore, Sonko has to answer for his misdeeds, unless they are baseless and taken out proportions. Some even claim this is the sins of the previous administration and Sonko trying to clear the bill. But that is up for his legal aid to defend the man.
Sonko’s time was up and suddenly he had to appear. Somehow, it isn’t far from being a high ranking official to be answering in courts. Even Cabinet Secretaries has gone from High Ranking Officials to felons overnight. Therefore, that Sonko does it now isn’t that special.
His just one con down, more to go. Wouldn’t be shocked if he got caught slipping and had cases against him with viable evidence. However, that is up to the courts of if the DPP has his paper-trail in order. It wouldn’t be shocking if Sonko got caught doing some illegal bidding and some tenders out of whack. That just meant he was the perfect target at this very moment.
Since the DPP and other agencies has targeted less friendly faces and ensured they have a bad day. Like Hassan Joho of Mombasa has already been under fire for other reasons. Therefore, that Sonko is in trouble today isn’t a sudden new trick of the sleeve. More another play and to show that someone gets charged for corruption.
If this plays out well and not a PR stunt, than the DPP and EACC has done their best. If he just get free and the case is dismissed. Than it was just a play for the façade and hoping that no one notice the charade. However, that is to early to know.
Nevertheless, when you elect a crook and a thief, don’t expect him to not steal. He will not turn into a preacher man and a saint, when he has already been charged with it in the past. That should be public knowledge and common sense, but apparently is not. Peace.
