It’s official! Land Reforms have been killed and now being buried under the Chairmanship of KaleSingha Ruto
Without butting an eyelid, the King of contemporary land grabbing (Ruto) and yesteryear’s land aristocrat Uhuru Kenyatta have sensed that time is running out and decided to kill land reforms enacted in the new Constitution once and for all.
Its deja vu once again, we are back to 1963 with Jomo Kenyatta’s dismantling of the Lancaster Constitution.
Land reforms are being buried just like devolution is being strangled financially.
Kenyatta is once again using his sly hand in fronting Ruto to be “in-charge” of this dirty project.
The Cantankerous Ruto, obviously stone-faced, highly contemptuous, arrogant, and filled with hubris, will not mind presiding over the process of mutilating a Constitution he vehemently opposed. Having snaked his way next to the seat of power, he now has his Vinja-Katiba moment.
Still seething from an embarrassing expose of his recent land-grab of the Langata School Playground, Ruto is on a roll. Having the full blessings of Kenya’s (arguably) biggest opponent of land reforms (Kenyatta), it is now just a matter of time before we rewind the clock to the pre-Katiba days — na mta do?
