There are now speculations that the Senator Kipchumba Murkomen will be purged from his position as the Senate Majority Leader and become a backbencher with his other 9 compatriots, who voted to save the Governorship of Ferdinand Waititu yesterday, which it didn’t. The ones aligned with the President and Odinga, all voted for the impeachment and won.
Therefore, its now talk of the town that Jubilee’s own Secretary General Rapahel Tuju will takeover the post from Murkomen a strong ally of the Deputy President William Ruto. We are seeing already the rift between the TangaTanga associates of Ruto and the other President’s men. The TangaTanga are seemingly voting and acting like opposition. Even as they are ironically part of the government party.
However, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) and other leading parties, which are part of the defunct National Super Alliance (NASA) are voting with the government and for the government. They are even holding rallies, press conferences, all in accordance with the government and their collective work of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI). You cannot make this up.
The Jubilee consist of the faction with the President Uhuru Kenyatta and Ruto’s TangaTanga. The TangaTanga should if these things go on. Just do themselves a favour and split from Jubilee. Go back to the party structure previous to the second term of Jubilee. Because right now, the battle in between is getting hectic. As the Jubilee is dismissing the TangaTanga and also favouring the line of the opposition Raila Odinga. Which must hurt the pride of the DP and his disciples. As they are fair-game, as a punishment for not openly endorsing the BBI from the get-go.
That is how it seems from afar, as the verdict is still out. However, there are actions being made and wordings coming out too. Showing that the TangaTanga is hurt and they are also directing their fingers at Odinga, not at Kenyatta. Which in itself is ironic, as their mate and boss is the one who sanctioned and gave life by the government to the BBI in the first place. Not like Kenyatta isn’t the man who gave way for it and bought peace between them. By also in some way silencing the opposition, as they are in-directly working with a mission together with the state.
That’s why TangaTanga, DP Ruto and his associates feels left behind and lost. They are not directly part of the BBI. They are part of the Jubilee, supposed connected with the President. But he seems to think they are fair game too. As he haven’t stopped it. Just like he didn’t stop sen. James Orengo from taking over for sen. Moses Wetan’gula as the Minority Leader in the Senate last year. That was a token of support from the President, while the disloyal cadre got punished.
We can just wonder how this will go, but the purge might happen. There might be more associates of DP Ruto, which the President and his men is aiming for. To prove to Ruto that a 2022 ambition is fruitless and no one around him will support that. However, are they then supporting the dynasty of Odinga now?
That would really be weird, but the whole BBI and the whole set-up is a blended miss-match and doesn’t make sense. Nevertheless, they still act upon it and the consequences are already there. Peace.
Who know that Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta would be such good friends and able to enhance their friendship to this level. Now, its officially gazetted on the 10th January 2020 that the Taskforce for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI). It has delivered a report, but not amount to much. It’s a dream for some, but nothing has gone anywhere.
The BBI seems like buying Kenyatta and Odinga time. We can wonder for what, but its not to implement anything. It is to secure the shaky Jubilee Alliance and Party. Which is already at war with itself these days. Even if it two years to the next election and no end-game in sight. Except for whose next to eat.
The BBI seems like a forged declaration of promises, dream and ending the stalemate between the two. Why I have little faith in it?
Well, Odinga promised Canaan and the promised land. He ditched that for the BBI. Where he stopped addressing the flaws of the Fresh Presidential Elections and the Courts justifications for those. As they were able to nullify the first ones.
Still, with this deal. He sealed the Presidency and this term. He gave way. Uhuru has paid scraps for a friendly opposition and making National Super Alliance (NASA) fragile. The ODM reign supreme, while the others has gotten little or none. Like Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka has gotten some leafs, but the other principals has been ditched in the fire-sale.
Now, William Ruto and the TangaTanga feels betrayed, as they getting the same attacks, the same treatment as NASA did earlier. The supposed friends and allies of Kenyatta. Still, Kenyatta now values more the BBI, than the previous partners. Who knows why, but the same actions happens now and lack of respect.
It is like BBI is a shield of salvation for the ODM, but it ended the mission. The BBI Report and the Second Round. Is just validating that, as the promises was never kept. Not like the Jubilee are keeping theirs with their ghost projects, grand corruption and dysfunctional Big Four. It all seems like cooked campaigning by Cambridge Analytica, instead of the realpolitik from the Executive and the Cabinet Secretaries.
BBI is a smokescreen and at the same redeeming for the two who did the handshake. The BBI is just buying time. There is no proof of anything. Its all talk and no play. Empty promises and false hope. When you have already sold that before, either as Jubilee or as NASA. The deal is already set in motion.
The Blowing the Budget Initiative (BBI), that’s what it is. If not its the Big-Big Insult (BBI). Peace.
Deputy President William Ruto now claims that Raila Odinga destroyed the Jubilee party, the coalition party created before the election in 2017 and the direct coalition between TNA and URP in 2013. However, that is far from the truth.
Who Ruto should first blame is that Cambridge Analytica apparently didn’t do all their jobs, make the manifestos, the party structure and fix the bugs within the party before the 2017 elections. Also, the lack of structure from the previous one. If someone from the outside like Raila can destroy a party by a handshake and phony taskforce with the BBI. Than, the Party clearly is built on sand and not on mountain soil.
Not, that I trust Ruto a little second, a minute or an hour to tell the truth. There are a few ghosts projects, lack of stadiums and non-action in concern of the Big-Four. Which is enough grounds for me to not trust his words. However, he is still the second in command. His still powerful and has his hands in things.
What is bugging me out, why go after Raila? Is it because he knows it futile and lackluster to go after Uhuru Kenyatta? Because it takes two to tango. It takes two individuals to make a handshake. If not your handshaking yourself and that is a sad vision. Like agreeing with yourself and thinking your spouse will think the same without mentioning the paradigm shift. This is how it seems like, the DP is in hot-water, instead of blaming the ones with Executive and Head of State. He goes for the man semi-government position and blasting him.
Ruto knows this, his a seasoned politician, a conning one at that. His not the Mr. Lova-Lova and the packs of candy crushers. No, his a man who uses the force of his position and trying to configure the best deals out of things. It wouldn’t be Ruto if so.
Somewhere in Ruo’s head, Raila is living debt-free and playing around. His a mystique and mesmerizing character who toys with all of his emotions. Ruto should feel humiliated by Kenyatta and his camp in Jubilee. That they let his men fall and himself gets touched by the state. He should go to the state house and talk. Instead of throwing shade at Raila.
This just make the whole concept and the whole idea of Jubilee, look like a cook-up from Cambridge Analytica and future progress from Emerdata. If they will hire the same guys to reconfigure the party again.
Who knows, but DP Ruto seems fishing and out of bound. The destruction of Jubilee, will come from within itself. It doesn’t need help from Raila and BBI. Even if BBI is screwed way of giving relevance to the ODM and Odinga himself. Still, its just benign and beneath his office. Though that is not new in his regard. Peace.
