Before I proceed, I wish to take this opportunity to thank Mama Margaret Kenyatta â€“ a woman sentenced to be President Uhuruâ€™s wife â€“ for the noble initiative she is undertaking to ensure that mothers and children overcome the challenges they face with HIV and AIDS to improve maternal and child health outcomes.
Nevertheless, I must confess that I am not happy with his hubby and I want her to ask him a simple question for me. What plan does he and his community has for his Deputy President Hon William Samoei Arap Ruto?
Just recently, the Prime Minister besought to offer the DP his unstinting support by testifying in his favor at The Hague based International Criminal Court. The move was received with mixed receptions, with a section of The Jubilee coalition fervently expressing its dissatisfaction with no apparent reason.
The Jubilee diatribe champions took it to various rostrums and affronted the PM, asking him to keep off Rutoâ€™s case. The fact that the PMs selfless offer sent jitters to their distraught faces of TNA followers, pushes me to ask them a small question, what are you afraid of?â€
Following my fierce articles in the dailies, I have been scoffed at and branded a rebel. Nonetheless, I cannot say that I have been vindicated given the fact that Kenyans have been set on the path of political turmoil already. I will not tire to say that Kenyans have been subjected to the dark days of civilian dictatorship. Under this regime, corruption has become an industry and they donâ€™t deny it.
The constitution has been disrespected and disregarded by the fierce economic terrorists that are fiercely guarded or pardoned. Gigantic fraud cases preferred against them are tactically and technically withdrawn. If our political landscape and economy has been handed over to the vultures what remains?
Back to Kipchirchir, it is laughable that the TNA brigade terms the PMâ€™s testimony inconsequential. The fact of the matter is that the moment Raila steps foot at The Hague, Ruto will be free again. Ruto, although indirectly, has through his mouth piece Onesimus Kipchumba Murkomen, welcomed Odingaâ€™s candid move to unhook him from the shackles of forty something plus years somewhere in Guantanamo Bay.
I am sorry to say that from the look of things, somebody somewhere wants the DP incarcerated. Rutoâ€™s incarceration will pave way for some TNA apparachtrics. It is clear to them that Mr. Odinga holds the key to Rutoâ€™s emancipation. With the memories of the 2007 post election violence slowly obliterating from our memories, the fact in the ground remains that Kalenjins and Kikuyus have never warmed to each other.
