Sincerely speaking, this man Dr. William Ruto is a beast, a vampire and crocodile combined. Unlike those former NASA brothers who long sold their consciences and morals for a cup of porridge, the doyen hasn’t formed a coalition with any tribal kingpin but he dwarfs his competitors and stands tall like the Rock of Gibraltar. He possesses a Solomonic charm buttressed by a nonpareil gift of the gab that is esteemed by Kenyans from every nook and cranny.
Our enemies should be reminded that Dr. Ruto is in charge of a well-oiled political machine that will destroy any tribal coalition that will dare come its way. He is readily judicious. He handles every oral stone pelted at him with utmost decorum. He treats every rumour with a pinch of salt because he knows his onions. His intellectual prowess discombobulates every political cognoscente. Despite being an academic gymnast, William is an accomplished wordsmith and a literary engineer.
On the other hand, the status quo in NASA is untenable and unsustainable because those fellows got no respect for the masses. The coalition is sitting on a keg of gunpowder. Its infrastructures are in comatose. They have no economic agenda. Even if they were to take over at the helm, they’ll rob Peter to pay Paul.
When Dr. Ruto takes over, Kenya will be a hub of tourism and a global destination for commerce and industry. He shall bring everyone together with clear vision of the future and restructure Kenya with honesty of purpose. He will discard the 19th century bureaucracy so as to meet the 21st century challenges. Our unity in diversity will be explored to make Kenya a prosperous nation again.
Dr. Ruto’s coalition with the common Mwananchi is tenable and sustainable. Picture this; when Raila is looking for Kalonzo, Mudavadi and Wetangula to form an alliance, Dr. Ruto is talking to Mama Mboga, Bodaboda and the Kinyozi hustlers and empowering them. Yaani to face Dr. William Ruto, all these men including a seasoned politician like Raila can’t face a former chicken seller and the son of a man whose father nobody knows?
The reason why Dr. Ruto is ahead of the rest is because he speaks directly to the hearts of the plebs. His evergreen words on their marble are auspicious to them and augur favourable circumstances in their difficult times. He has assured them that after the long rainy season of suffering, sunshine is soon forthcoming. He has reassured them that after a long period of darkness, the glorious dawn is in the offing. He has pacified their souls by reminding them that there is no sorrow without its alloy of joy and likewise, there can never be joy without an admixture of sorrow
Fellow Hustlers I want to remind you that behind any ugly terrible mask of misfortune, lies the beautiful soothing countenance of prosperity. All we need to do is tear the mask! As Raila and his fellow tribal kingpins are trying to regroup, they must tear the mask of intellectual laziness, bigotry and hopelessness. But I know that will NEVER happen. But for now, that is none of our business. We have a government to form in 2022.
