RUTO’S INSINCERITY WILL FINISH HIM
By: Willie Muthoni via Kenya Insights
Ruto is a man under siege; Kenyans have no problem with where he takes his money but rather where he gets it from. Which river does he draw his limitless cash from? And as I had initially stated, he really gets under my skin the way he takes everyone for a fool.
His latest statement that he donates his money during the day to churches while some other people take their money to witches at night is a perfect example of just how cheaply he values our intelligence.
He is now invoking religious and superstitious insinuations to divert attention from explaining the source of his wealth. This question regarding the source of his money will not go away unless he comes out openly and confess that he has a minting press at his residence.
For a man who is hell bent to become the President of Kenya he must make us understand or know how he made his money; that’s the only way Kenyans can know whether he fits the integrity bill or not. So you see, he doesn’t have the luxury of asking to be left alone unless again he drops his quest for the presidency.
However gullible Kenyans are reputed to be, Ruto and his political surrogates must desist underrating the intelligence of the voter, the recent display of arrogance during a church service where Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria claimed to own the choppers Ruto uses was an all-new low.
It was insulting to see Kuria – a man of questionable character and morals, lie in broad day light in a church. Before being rescued by Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja who ‘helped him steal’ TNA Nominations after the demise of his predecessor Hon John Ngugi, Kuria was a low life idling along Harambee Avenue hoping to land a deal or run errands for political players.
Needless to say, Moses Kuria ‘the chopper owner’ is accused of neglecting his two children whom he sired with the first wife and abandoned in abject poverty when he moved to Dubai, leaving them at the mercies of well-wishers and the Catholic Church that educated the two.
As the old adage goes; show me your friends I tell you whom you are, Ruto keeps by his side morally corrupt fellows like Kuria and Sudi. Uhuru has been in a very difficult coalition with William Ruto. It’s for this reason that he reached out for Raila to help him implement certain very critical reforms which he can’t be able to with Ruto at his side.
Actually it has been some sort of blackmail. Now, thanks to the handshake, fighting corruption is at the centre of Uhuru’s agendas. Recently on blogosphere, a one Clement Gachanja had suggested that Uhuru shall fail in his quest to slay corruption following the handshake; lets not be so rigid about the subject of Raila.
Most of the negative publicity about him was just state sponsored propaganda to win the 2017 vote. The same state has now instructed all its Embassies and High Commissions to treat Raila like Uhuru’s personal representative. Uhuru is resetting the politics of this country.
It’s no longer a secret Raila Odinga is now turning the tables on Ruto; taking advantage of Uhuru’s desperation to secure a lasting legacy? As a matter of fact, a Raila presidency is inevitable. Ruto’s insincerity with his source of wealth will vanquish him at the altar.
