Iron lady Lady Martha Karua was in her characteristic when she told off William Ruto and reminded him that what is ‘indisputable’ is that ‘thousands were murdered, maimed and displaced’ and the that the ‘accused’ should answer!
“Even in the valley of the shadow of death, two and two do not make six,” philosophically quoting Leo Tolstoy.
Joined in the tirade by renowned civil liberties blogger, Betty Waitherero, who told Ruto that his claims of being ‘fixed’ does not exonorate him from being a perpetrator, Karua told the accused to stop looking for the ‘goats’ to blame.
“Everyone must account for their deeds and for the accused it is time to account not looking for scapegoats” said Iron Lady.
Karua, a former fiery politician who garnered for the presidency but was unfortunately defeated by Mwalimu Dida among others, was yesterday mentioned by Ruto through his defense attorneys as part of the PNU (now TNA) establishment that took him to the Hague. In a rejoinder, she took Ruto on like she often did during her glorious days.
“Three things cannot be long hidden: The Sun, the Moon and the truth,” she quoted Buudha, then added another line from Tolstoy.
“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time,” and she again added the ‘truth’.
Prodded further whether she fixed Ruto, the former Justice Minister asked rhetorically, ‘was I a policeman?’
In her concluding remarks, prophetically, she turned to the Bible.
“The blood of Abel followed Cain”.
This whole Hague thing is getting crazy, sit back people, let’s watch from wherever we are!
