I have always held the view that there are few, very few elite’s among the Kikuyu community who think that Kenya revolves around Kikuyu’s and some Kind of idiotic Kikuyu supremacist.
I have also believed that those few elites would not Vote for William Samoei Ruto come 2022 because in their mind he is not fit to be President BUT they are okay if William rallies his constituency to support Uhuru Kenyatta to be President.
I have also believed that come 2022 those few elites would go shopping for another man/ woman in central Kenya with the only qualification being he or she will be a Kikuyu.
I will say this….
1.Those ignorant elites lack the wisdom of seeing the bigger picture.
2.They Lack Political tact.
3. They Lack the capacity to deeply understand and appreciate the delicate Political Unity crafted BY Uhuru & Ruto and the environment it operates in.
4. They also lack the wisdom to understand what that unity means to the people of Rift valley especially Kikuyu’s living and doing business in the Rift.
I have listened to The man Jeff Koinange loves to call ‘shocker’ from Gachoka. He shocked me. He appeared drunk. But behind the stupor the man confirmed that he is what I call, the ignorant Kikuyu elite. Tony Gachoka is without a doubt an ignorant man. He assumes importance and status that he does not have. He does not advice the President. If the President was to be adviced by TG then Kenya would go to the dogs. The President certainly has better Choices of People with wisdom not an inconsequential character that takes random Photo’s to studio to show you how close he is to the President. . Those that think as Kikuyu’s and not as Kenyans. The good news is that his thinking is a minority.
The good news is he does not even have a constituency to his name. He certainly does not have a following. He is Just that a minority with a mindset of the complete ignorant.
It does not reflect the thinking of the majority of Progressive Kikuyu’s that I know.
