Homa bay MP Peter Opondo Kaluma has revealed damning details of Deputy President William Ruto’s plot to scuttle the handshake after fears that a Kikuyu-Luo alliance will scuttle his 2022 presidential ambitions.
Read his revelation below
“It’s 9.3.2018 at 10.00 am. It’s a morning like any other until a statement goes out that H.E Uhuru Kenyatta and H.E. Raila Odinga are set to address Kenyans from the steps of Harambee House.
The entire nation is sent into mixed reactions: a sigh of relief sweeps across the nation as those whose only survival turns on NASA/Jubilee political hegemony are sent into a spin. Photos later go out showing Ministers interrupting meetings to watch the momentous happening. The Leaders address Kenya and promise to treat the need for inclusivity, equity, fairness, corruption at once and to set Kenya on the path of socio-economic progress, for all Kenyans. This is followed by the now famous golden handshake.
National debate turns to this event.
William Ruto and the NASA principals are caught unawares; they are confused as other Kenyans and have no planned reaction to it. In the next one hour, William Ruto whose title for Raila for the past 5 years has been “Mganga” posts 7 tweets referring to Uhuru and Raila as statesmen and nationalists.
That evening, MPs and senior NIS officers from the Kalenjin community convene to disect this development at Ruto’s official residence. The meeting ends at dawn with one resolution: LUO/KIKUYU POLITICAL RAPPROCHEMENT IS INDEFEASIBLE IN KENYAN HISTORY. MEMBERS OF THE 2 TRIBES MUST BE KEPT APART. THE HANDSHAKE IS NOT GOOD FOR RUTO; RUTO SHOULD PRETEND HE SUPPORTS THE INITIATIVE, TAKE IT OVER AND SCUTTLE IT. RUTO MUST IMMEDIATELY REACH OUT TO THE OTHER NASA PRINCIPALS AND INDIVIDUALS FROM NASA AREAS WHO WERE DEFEATED IN THE 2017 ELECTIONS.
William Ruto hits the road and moves accross Kenya shouting full support for the initiative by the “statesmen” as he also reaches out to Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi. Soon thereafter, Wetangula and Mudavadi who were pushing Raila to initiate dialogue with Uhuru, not knowing the leaders were already engaged in talks, start protesting the initiative! Kalonzo Musyoka prevaricates: He is the wiser as he realizes he needs Raila more than Raila needs him. Kalonzo decides not to antagonize the initiative.
Things move fast to the Senate where Orengo, an erstwhile great friend of Wetangula executes a bloodless coup against Wetangula and effortlessly takes over as Senate Minority Leader. Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi are emboldened and can no longer hide their hitherto secret dealings with Ruto! There is thawing of relationship between Central Kenya and Nyanza, as Ruto pulls apart.
In Parliament, MPs from Central Kenya and those from ODM are seen caucusing while those from Rift Valley hole-up in unending ethnic conspiracy. RUTO IS FIGHTING DIALOGUE. HE CAN’T SUPPORT ANY ARRANGEMENT TARGETING TO FIGHT CORRUPTION AND IMPUNITY, ELECTORAL INJUSTICE AND ETHNIC EXCLUSION. THESE ARE HIS SPRINGBOARD. DIALOGUE WILL NOT TAKE OFF UNLESS AND UNTIL RUTO IS REASSURED IT’S NOT AIMED AT ESTABLISHING POLITICAL REUNION BETWEEN NYANZA AND CENTRAL KENYA. DESPITE PUBLIC PRETENCES, CENTRAL KENYA HAS NOT FORGIVEN RUTO AND WILL NOT VOTE FOR HIM TO BE PRESIDENT IN 2022 OR AT ANY OTHER TIME IN FUTURE. THE LUOS HATE RUTO; HE IS CORRUPT AND DISRESPECTFUL. ITS NOW WILLIAM RUTO/IMPUNITY/STATUS QUO AGAINST KENYANS SEEKING ONE UNITED, JUST, EQUAL AND FAIR KENYA, FOR ALL.
