The Kikuyu community is a very funny one. As they celebrate Ruto release, Kenyans must remember that during the 2007 post election violence, they were all castigating Ruto claiming he massively killed, displaced and triggered a forcible transfer of Kikuyus from their original homes in Rift Valley.
That time if you mentioned Ruto’s name near a Kikuyu, he/she could eat you alive. In fact, everyone wanted justice for all victims including those that were burnt in Kiambu church and left with ugly scars as others died on the spot. It is now interesting that the same Kikuyus are the ones celebrating the controversial acquittal of the same ‘beast’ they claimed masterminded their ordeal.
Okay, we can, therefore, conclude that Kikuyus were pretending by then and that they stage-managed the entire killings to falsely accuse Ruto. For me, I still insist that justice be served to the victims the 2007 post-election violence.
Since Ruto is innocent, Kikuyus must explain to Kenyans why they masterminded the entire thing to divert the attention from the stolen election. Why did Kikuyus kill themselves? Why did they rape their women? Why did they burn their brothers and sisters in Kiambaa church? Why did they eject their brothers and sisters from Rift Valley and blame it on Ruto? At least, if it happened in Kisumu, you could have blamed it on Raila.
Oh! Before I go, it is now clear that Ruto will be in the ballot in 2022 and he must be given back the support he gave to Uhuru. In 2002, Raila was shortchanged but he accepted and moved on. In 2007, Kalonzo was promised honey but later on had his ass kicked off but being the handsome man he is, he accepted and moved on quietly. Now, it’s time for the BIG brother but we can only wait to see how he’ll respond to the dumping after next year’s General Election given that we are all aware that ICC is a toothless dog. LET THE DRAMA BEGIN!!!
