Words can be deceiving at times, but pictures never lie. For about 3 years or so, President Uhuru and his deputy have travelled the same paths, but as these pictures shows, their experiences have been different. While President Kenyatta have gained considerable weight, signifying a man at peace with himself and firmly in control of the instruments of power, the deputy president have visibly lost some weight.
President Kenyatta is definitely a happy man~ ICC gone, Visited by Obama, and now even the pope is coming to see him, all these are good reasons to pack on some pounds, and some may add the missing billions too are contributing factors( personally I believe the presumption of innocence until proven guilty).
Now back to the DP. I have heard several explanation for his weight loss. Some say it is the ICC, some say he is exercising and possibly not drinking the orange juice anymore as he used to in the past, some have also argued that its the fact that half of his cabinet appointees are suspended while queen bee is sitting pretty in government
with a scandal of missing billions.
Others posit it’s the power play and succession politics ( Isaac Ruto, man Gideon, and now Peter Kenneth). Whatever the reasons, it is clear the Jubilee partnership is no-longer a 50/50 affair. The days of matching ties and shirts are long gone , and the reality of who controls the throne is setting in.
Our DP is now reduced to an usher next to a plane!!Yes all dreams are valid, including that of a hustler becoming president, but Mr Ruto must be aware of the fate of those that have been before him, notably the likes of Raila Odinga, Musalia Mudavadi, and Kalonzo Musyoka.
Mr. DP, I recommend you watch RANGO. You will realizes that the likes of Kalonzo were once popular sheriffs, but were quickly sacrificed when the city dwellers needed water.
Finally Deputy president, as a Christian, I will remind you of the parable of the sower as told in Mathews 13:3-9. You see, in the run up to the last presidential election, you were a good seed who decided to plant himself in thorns, and as these pictures shows, the thorns are chocking you….. Uproot yourself sir, and plant yourself in good soil before you whither into oblivion.
I still remain your admirer.
