The nonsense continues.
Apparently Ruto is in a fight with Raila.
It is crap. Someone gave Uhuru a terrible advice. They told him if you want to make Ruto Crazy then start talking and being friendly to Raila. Ruto took the bait. It is working marvelously.
I have doubts if Raila will run for the presidency in 2022. But Ruto is busy campaigning against him which could end up as a big waste of time. We will see.
But here is the big issue for me.
Ruto’s big argument against Raila is that Raila has been in politics forever and should retire.
The truth is that Ruto has been in politics longer than Raila. In fact me and Ruto graduated from Nairobi University at the same time. In the mid 1980’s.
From college I went to work as a lecturer at Mombasa Polytechnic, now the University of Mombasa.
Ruto left college and went straight to politics.
Ruto with Jirongo formed the Kanu youth wing (YK 92) to protect Moi and they started right off engaging in murder of political rivals of Moi, brutal beatings like we saw against Rev. Njoya, theft of public funds was their biggest achievement. They even created the 500 shilling bill and had their hands all over the Treasury stealing everything with Moi’s help.
So this Thief in Chief now wants to be our Commander in Chief. What are his credentials other than being a thief all his life?
Yes Raila has been in politics for a long time. 9 of those years he was in detention while Ruto was stealing our money and murdering people. And then Raila went to exile coming to Toronto where I met him at Pearson International Airport and we went to a nice Eritrean Restaurant for some real good food.
As a matter of fact Ruto has never done anything else other than being in politics, robbing us and killing people. That is his resume and we have seen it live live for decades. It is going to be on the table come 2022.
We know about the Kiambaa church massacre in 2007 where we saw kids being thrown back into a burning church when they tried to escape.
Ruto says he was born poor and went to school with no shoes. I had the same issues. And today I just called my little nephew an incredible soccer player. He is at Migwena Sports Ground in Bondo for an end of year football tournament.
He has torn shoes, torn socks and torn pants and all. I told him, kid this is good for you. If you can do something with everything torn, you are going somewhere. You have to pull it off. And he said he is going to do it
I promised to buy him the entire set of soccer gear before he goes back to school. He is a star soccer player at his school.
But here is the deal for me. When Ruto he was a poor guy born in a poor family that is OK. Many of us can relate with that.
Then Ruto says now he is big and rich the question is how did you get there. Killing and stealing. That is the truth, simple and clear. Ruto is basically telling Kenyans that he has been a very successful thief and murderer his entire adult life and for that Kenyans should reward him with the presidency. Get out of here dude.
And this guy is supposed to be Ruto’s deputy in 2022.
He might be luckier choosing Sonko as his running mate.
But here is Ruto’s guy. Clueless and just straight dumb.
Here we go with this Jubilee clown. How do you let a thug like this be the governor of the most important county in the nation with more than 4 million people. That is bigger than many countries.
Here is your thug.
An here is the other thug running a huge county.
An here is the other thug running a huge county.
And the Swag goes on with Sonko and Simon Mbugua who is also now in big shit. Roll on boys.
Is this the new norm? Ruto’s loud mouths issuing public threats to appointees of President Uhuru.
Kenyans should read that public statement released by Duale carefully and judge for themselves.
Duale starts with a story about a shepherd who found abandoned lions in the bushes and brought them home to nurture them.
And then the lion cubs became a menace to his dogs and family and eventually throws the lions back to the bush where they “fade away”
Duale uses the story to warn Matiang’i and Kibicho and I am sure many others that they will face the same fate as those who were once in power during Jomo Kenyatta, Moi, and Kibaki rule when there is a change in power!
Duale then goes on to talk about past public servants like Charles Njonjo, Kihika Kimani, PS Oyugi, Christopher Murungaru, Amos Kimunya and many others.
Duale’s message is rather obvious. Duale is telling civil servants who are considered nasty to his king Ruto that they will be dealt with once the “cycle” of power is handed over to the DP and his crew.
Now you can talk about whatever you want but threatening public officials that you will give them the Kihika Kimani treatment is omnious.
Kihaki who was very nasty to Moi was forced to run into exile as soon as Moi took power. He had to escape to save his life. Is that what awaits some Kenyans when Ruto and his crew take power from Uhuru?
And Duale’s warning is not some stupid speech made in some village. It is an official statement released to the media.
Even Jomo Kenyatta didn’t do anything like that. He made nasty speeches and insulted people but did not issue official public warnings. He just killed people when he wanted and Moi did the same but this era of public warnings is a new thing.
The first question is how many other people are in this list of those who will face the wrath of the assumed next regime?
There is one rule. If you want power in Kenya, please don’t threaten people about the damage you are going to do to them.
And worse still, Duale is threatening the two people in charge of our national security including the police, NIS and the GSU.
If you are threatening those people now, do you realize we are three years away from the next election. They can take care of you before then.
This BBI thing is still marinating in the minds of Kenyans and we are going to figure it out. I am going to have my say on it soon
But this half speech by Uhuru kind of surprised me.
Uhuru is letting it out there. I think by tomorrow I will give my two cents on this BBI thing.
I said before and I still think the same today that Ruto’s war with Raila in the presidential election 2022 may never happen at all. This is shadow boxing
This could the most wicked curve ball of all. I think Waiguru is in this thing, Matiang’i is in this thing and Uhuru and Raila are somewhere there. We are going to find out. Coast is going to come in and Western will be there too. Anything is possible here.
But Uhuru having this amount of fun at the expense of his DP is brutal:
The body language says it all. Ruto invested heavily in the Kibra ass kicking that he got. Ruto tried to get Uhuru into this and it just didn’t work.
Then Uhuru is talking about how he supported their candidate and Ruto is finding it difficult even to keep his eyes open. It is a painful moment for him.
Then Uhuru switches on to the so-called violence during the election which Ruto and his friends had turned into a new elephant in the BBI room. Ruto stand has been that unless Raila and ODM apologize for the alleged violence Raila should be kicked out of the BBI.
Now Uhuru mocks and ridicules all those fake Ruto stories saying the only violence was the big boys stoning themselves and Uhuru says those guys have enough money to go to Nairobi Hospital.
Uhuru then says something really funny. Uhuru says he had a talk one of his friends who is a Kibra resident about the election just after it ended.
Uhuru says his friend told him people in Kibra were crying because they wanted two more weeks of campaign. Uhuru’s friend tells him money was pouring in Kibra and they could use two more weeks of that money.
Basically, Uhuru is telling Ruto that OK you spent a fortune in Kibra and lost. That’s all. No big deal. That is putting salt in a bad place.
And then Uhuru declares that in Kibra Kenya won. There are many ways to make Ruto mad but this is another league.
If I am Ruto I am asking the president for a meeting and I am asking if I am still his deputy or I am now a comedy sidekick for him.
And I am telling him if I am no longer the deputy, I am quitting. But that never happens in Kenya if you are near power you grovel around to inherit it.
Even that has only happened once in our country when Moi took power.
And that was because Mzee Kamaliza was dead in Mombasa.
And the heckling continues.
And the Ruto boys have their own Retreat in Naivasha.
Things are going to get very messy before the coast clears.
First it was Murkomen carrying their other trophy Mariga with him to Pokot for photo ops. I was like really? These are the kind of leaders Kenyans have today.
Then I said it is the idiot Murkomen. This is normal for him.
Then here comes Ruto with the same Murkomen to boast that they have made it to Pokot to view dead bodies in Pokot when Matiangi could not make it.
I am stunned that Ruto and co did not take pictures with the dead bodies to add to their trophy collection.
I am completely frightened by this crop of leadership which is angling to take full control of our country in three years. This is a form of sadism which should never ever come close to national leadership.
You go to pokot with nothing but your choppers to try to win national sympathy for the tragedy. Even shame would look good on you Mr. Ruto. You are worse than that.
This is like entertainment show for these guys. It will not last long. Of that I am sure. You can’t be this gross and win the heart of a country. Any country.
For people like Murkomen it is like go back home from Pokot change your clothes and come back for another show with your king Ruto and a new helicopter.
And here is pastor Ngang’a in action. If this is your next president. Be afraid, Be very afraid.
Ruto has been declaring war on BBI and Raila because he claims in the Kibra election, Raila ODM unleashed electoral violence and therefore the BBI movement has to be dead here and now.
Now President Uhuru comes publicly to announce that he has never seen or imagined of such a peaceful election in Kibra.
In the Kibra election, Ruto thought he had a two edged sword with both sides working for him.
It could turn out this is a three edged sword.
Ruto’s strategic plan was they go and beat Raila in Kibra and then tell Uhuru, you see we can beat Raila even single handed. Don’t worry about him. Support me.
Plan B for Ruto and his clueless strategists was if they lose Kibra they would go hyperbole about how violent and terrible Raila and ODM was and that Jubilee had no reason to work with this monster called Raila.
Ruto and co have been in a rampage about so called Kibra violence by ODM even though it was Ruto’s commander in Chief in Kibra Bonny Khalwale was the one in pictures and videos collecting stones from the sewage lines.
I have no idea how much raw sewage Khalwale collected in his effort to go to war for Ruto. Look at the pictures.
Then Ruto’s primary political thinker and sycophant who is also the majority leader in the senate Mr. Murkoman declared that he will not even move a BBI item in the senate unless Raila apologizes for the alleged violent crimes committed by ODM in the Ruto loss in Kibra.
Now the president comes up says the Kibra bye election was peaceful and a pointer to the future of a peaceful Kenya.
Helo Ruto and Markomen. Are you with your president and party leader or not.
Tough question. I know.
One thing is for sure. Uhuru is going with BBI. What does Ruto do now?
How about Fatoumata Diawara to close all this down.
Just great. Isn’t she?
