Opinion: DP Ruto shows again how he finessed the game, yet again!

What happen on Sunday on the 20th May 2018, that everyone has accept the results of the Fresh Presidential Elections on the 26th October 2017. Like he knows perfectly well the flaws and the issues with the elections. He was part of the issues that the elections of 2017 had, it was him and the President who ordered and fixed the results. Therefore, it is insulting to tell others how to cope with the end-game. But that is his arrogance.

Deputy President William Ruto has finessed this game, using the CORD/NASA as the wrong-doers, while his party is justified. Ruto has all along said that you should respect the constitution, rule of law and fighting insecurity. While his government are disrespecting the same values, attacking the Supreme Court, not following Court Orders or even securing the people, as the police continues with brutality after the elections in 2017.

DP Ruto is really just disrespecting the values that he is so concerned about, he is defending it, when it goes his way. But when the same courts and same rules of law is in his way, the state and the Jubilee will say its a problem. We have all been here before, Ruto is really just finessing his way. Now we have to accept the outcome of the elections. Just like they wasn’t fully flawed and deserves an independent investigations into the Cambridge Analytica, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), Safaricom and the OT Morpho controversy, as the digital results transmission, the BVR Machine nightmare and the IEBC Server connected to the Cambridge Analytica server. All of these issues should be looked into, but that will also undress the king and the prince, which is Ruto. He and his kind will not accept the madness of doing so.

Also, that Ruto thinks people forget the number-crushing, the lack of openness within the results transmission, the lack of truthful voter register and amount of voters, which changed with time. As well, as the problematic high turnout for the 26th October elections, compared to the lack of people actually turning out. It is like Ruto forgets this. There are too many issues with this elections, just to let it go and say: Your the DP and President, we cannot question your legitimacy.

Even with the building bridges project, it doesn’t erase the history of these elections, that is why Ruto tries to finesse it. Tries to overshadow and let people forget the grand issues of it all. Ruto should be careful to even mention the elections. Because he knows perfectly well, all of these issues and underlying problems.

So, if he says they are legitimate, lets someone really independent, not judges who we’re besieged and house-arrested give the verdict, not let the boycotts and the grandest issues fall behind the swords of your tongue. Because we know the deal, we know the outcome and we know about what happen. It is the ignorant and blatant disregard for electoral practice that lets this go. It is you and your kind that don’t give a fig, about respecting the ballots and the people’s will.

Ruto, I will not accept a computer generated elections, where donkeys, chickens and kids voted your in and the electorate was disenfranchised. That is forgotten and people like me will not accept it. People were sleeping as guards on the polling stations. Therefore, Mr. Ruto, your legitimacy is fragile, it is fake and you can blame and tell others how to feel.

However, that will not change the reality and the real outcome of the 26th October 2017, maybe you should send the army to spread more fear, maybe more leaders in house-arrest. Because that was how you got the courts to comply to your wishes. Peace.
