Political scientist Mutahi Ngunyi has said that it is time for the Kikuyu community to prove wrong critics and honour their pledge to support William Ruto in 2022.
Speaking to journalists this morning in his office Upper Hill office, Ngunyi adviced the Kikuyu community to stop celebrating Ruto’s acquittal at the ICC claiming they have won yet they are the same people who said he masterminded the 2007 attacks on Kikuyus.
Ngunyi also asked those celebrating to remember the victims and make sure they get justice.
“I want to plead with the Agikuyu community to be careful with the celebrations because somehow, it is hypocritical. Remember it is the same community that believed the same person they are celebrating now, masterminded their surrering during the 2007 General Election. In fact, if there is anyone who is supposed to celebrate is Raila Odinga, the pentagon composition and the party for being vindicated. Jubilee seems to help ODM celebrate their victory though indirectly. Even as they celebrate, let them not forget the victims too. Victims did not fall from heaven. Someone somewhere must have done something to trigger their ordeal and I am not saying the DP did. To be honest, they say no one was responsible for the violence yet they say the government will compensate victims. Which victims if there is no perpetrator?” Said Ngunyi
“It is time for the Kikuyu community to prove critics wrong and and offer the DP the support he needs to be president in 2022. From now onwards, I don’t expect them to star shiofting political goalposts. The moment ICC cleared Ruto, it cornered the entire Kikuyu community. All eyes are Kikuyus to see if what people say that they cannot vote for other tribes is real. Only time will tell” Added Ngunyi.
