A man of deceit and deception Ruto began, was duly trained and mentored on how to steal from the public without being traced. He carefully learnt that in order to steal from your enemy, you must first not appear as an enemy but a friend. Additionally, for it to be effective, he must buy out and bribe politicians so that they will work as his foot soldiers in order to bring food on the table. He learnt the art of divide and rule. If that did not work, he focused on divide and manipulate, and finally divide and eliminate.
A young leader who was politically propelled when he became a leader of the YK92, Ruto has immensely grown out of scandals and scheming the government throughout his political career. Once an Agriculture Minister, Ruto was suspended over a maize scandal with an artificial food crisis created, and it has been replicated through his ally Mwangi Kiunjuri who as a Cabinet Secretary, ensured Sh41 billion is lost through the National Cereals and Produce Board. Despite Rift Valley region being the bread basket of maize, farmers have immensely suffered with no payments from the NCPB and many have resorted to other food crops. There has been a series of well calculated instances of maize shortages to ensure illegal importation of maize, most of which is filled with aflatoxins.
William Ruto has worked and walked far and wide with his numerous contributions to ensure he has allies to defraud the government and as a result, pocket corruption proceeds. Remember that the YK92 period was when Kenya entered into serious economic turmoil as there was rampant stealing in all sectors of the government under Moi’s regime. William Ruto was the leader with Cyrus Jirongo, and were key in ensuring that Kenyans are manipulated through increased poverty levels as a result of corruption. There were numerous donations by the ruling regime which was ultimately buying out Kenyans through manipulation.
This is how the Deputy President has operated since 2013 with allies who he well instructed that they must deliver to him the loot. His allies range from Governors, Members of Parliament, Cabinet Secretaries, Parastatal heads, among others. From Ruto himself grabbing 100 acres of land from an elderly man and even grabbing land from the Langata primary school, Ruto and his allies have been linked to numerous scandals where billions of shillings have been lost.
His biggest allies include Henry Rotich who scammed the government Sh30 billion through Treasury, Mwangi Kiunjuri who managed Sh41 billion, with the biggest bait being that of Charles Keter where Sh123 billion has been lost through the Energy Ministry. Additionally, Governors who had joined the Ruto camp have embezzled County funds with some being charged in court. Governors Ferdinand Waititu (Kiambu), Moses Lenolkulal (Samburu), Okoth Obado (Migori) and Ali Korane (Garissa) are just some of the Governors who have been charged with corruption, with others changing their stand on Ruto as a result. MPs allied to Ruto have been equally linked to corruption scandals, some of them being Moses Kuria (Gatundu South) with a Sh100 million CDF scandal, Aisha Jumwa (Malindi) with a the similar CDF scandal involving Sh312 million, John Waluke (Sirisia) involved in fraudulent acquisition of public properties and forgery where Sh114 million has been lost.
It is an endless list of ‘nefarious elements’ draining the country’s coffers, but what stands out is Ruto’s immense involvement in corrupt activities; where he blinds his supporters with the same loot through church donations that he usually comes back to collect. William Ruto is ready to throw Kenyans into the pit of destruction and will stop at nothing to obtain more billions for his 2022 ambitions.
Tangatanga’s presser today left Kenyans with more questions than answers. Was it a case of ‘if you cannot beat them join them or the proverbial ‘the devil is in the details’?
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen on Tuesday, January 21, announced that all Jubilee Party leaders had resolved to join ODM Party leader Raila Odinga in his BBI consultative meetings.

Speaking from Serena Hotel in Nairobi, the Senate majority leader led a group of Jubilee Senators and MPs, including Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, who all vowed to aid Odinga in drumming up support for the initiative.
“We will be participating in all public BBI rallies across the country and this weekend we will be in Mombasa together with the BBI team,” he declared.

However, he also aired out his misgivings on how the report was being peddled across the country, “Unfortunately, even before the period was defined, and to our profound dismay, it has come to our attention that a section of the political leadership already commenced public rallies aimed at politicizing the BBI process,” he stated.
Murkomen went on to outline seven resolutions they had come up with following their closed-door session as follows:
- That we shall participate and contribute towards the success of the already organized BBI rallies across the country, beginning with Mombasa this weekend.
- That to support existing efforts and complement the already scheduled rallies, we are organizing rallies in other parts of the country. We shall soon announce the calendar of complimentary rallies to reinforce those already published. To these rallies, everybody irrespective of political opinion is invited.
- That we fully support the BBI report as launched and intend to fully participate in related engagements in good faith.
- That we shall mobilize our constituents to present their views in all the 290 constituencies as soon as the task force gazetted by Government announces their full schedule.
- That we believe that by our participation in these rallies, we shall redirect the BBI conversation to people-centric issues such as the economy, unemployment, social justice, rule of law & human rights. At the moment, the discussion is centred on the pursuit of political power & positions by leaders.
- We are concerned with reports of existence of a clandestine BBI steering committe with an underground draft report & bill. To this end, we demand that the entire BBI process be driven in an open and transparent manner by the gazetted committee.
- We are opposed to the use of public funds in the organized BBI rallies unless appropriated by parliament or county assemblies. Our participation & organization of BBI rallies shall be through personal contributions.
This was a surprise move, with the Senator having grabbed the headlines back in November when he was booed off the stage at the Bomas of Kenya after he made claims that the BBI report was biased.
“Even before I spoke as the leader of the majority in the Senate, I was already feeling the conversation didn’t represent the wider communities across the country,” Murkomen stated at the launch.
He criticised the organizers of the event in the full glare of the media, foreign dignitaries and guests.
“Your Excellency, we must have an honest discussion here. Junet Mohammed (Suna East MP), I’ll be lying if I left this stage without saying that this programme has been skewed to leave out people with different opinions,” lamented Murkomen immediately he took to the podium before he was jeered off.
However, he has since announced that the ruling party was behind the initiative and that it would be part of the team set to drum up support for the BBI on Saturday, January 25.
He started young and full of ambition. Everything was ripe and ready to be put into action, carefully inducted to ensure Kenyans are strategically brought to their knees – all through an economic sabotage that was carefully orchestrated for manipulation and power. The YK92 was and still is his big win. This was because it was his opportunity to start amassing wealth as a young ‘hustler’ and it is because now, he is on the verge of joining the class of billionaires who are richer than most of the world’s population. It is indeed a reincarnation of the YK92 with now the perpetrator boldly betraying the President ever since he got a leeway into the helm of leadership back in 2013.
This time round, the YK92 strategy is being enacted with a billionaire man whose has planted allies in almost every sector of the economy to ensure the billions the government collects from Kenyans through taxes, and is loaned to through grants and donations, are channeled to his well-hidden off-shore accounts and into money laundering with minimal trace of the mammoth theft taking place.
Welcome to the world of Deputy President William Ruto, the smart modern-day elite thug who will steal while you are staring at him.
He leads by deception and empty promises which he is very unapologetic for. A leader who will make you believe he can bring the moon to Kenya. What happened in the YK92 season is that Kenya was plunged into economic sabotage through skillful plundering that denied Kenyans development and a decent source of income. Money was stolen skillfully and channeled to a few Kenyan politicians all through the YK92 which left indelible damage to the country. Remember Kenya was at par with South Korea in the 60s and even used to give out donations in the 80s and early 90s. So where did the country lose its focus?
All this was led by William Ruto and Cyrus Jirongo who were the main operators of the show and now what we have is a mastermind who has perfected the game of theft through his allies. The Treasury docket was manned by Henry Rotich who as a result; delivered his bounty through the Ruaraka scandal where Sh1.5 billion was lost, the Kimwarer and Arror Sh19 billion, and the maize imports scandal where approximately Sh10 billion has been lost.
The man who prefers photos of locusts, the former Cabinet Secretary manning the Agriculture docket, has so far delivered close to Sh45 billion to his master William Ruto. He has successfully scammed the government through the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) scandal of Sh11.3 billion or more. Over Sh85 million has been lost through the fertilizer scandal, Sh1.8 billion in illegal payments and Sh29 billion through the Itare dam scandal.
As a man manning the energy sector, Charles Keter was also not left behind in the thuggery. The KPC pricing scandal clinched Sh4.4 billion, KPC oil spillage scandal clinched Sh2.5 billion, Sh1.88 billion was through the KPC oil jetty, a whooping Sh95 billion through the KPC inflation of contracts and Sh6.3 billion in the Ketraco scandal. As if not enough, Charles Keter has ensured thuggery of Sh4.5 billion in the KPLC contract scandals, Sh3.3 billion through the Geothermal Development contract scandal and Sh5 billion on the Lake Turkana Wind Power scandal.
This is what the YK92 is all about, theft and more theft through William Ruto, the mastermind of the Tangatanga squad. How far will this country go at the rate at which corruption is taking place?
Kenya is about to be plunged into a banana republic if this is not stopped and money retrieved and the person who is pocketing these billions, is the man second in leadership, undoing the President’s vision of economic development and freedom for Kenyans. Kenyans will soon be suffocated by the Deputy President’s thuggery. This must be stopped and the country should not be surprised over arrests bound to take place.
A rich, oppressive, exploitative politician treads on the streets of Nairobi and Gatundu freely preaching his ideologies that according to him must be eaten with a big spoon. Moses Kuria is his name, the Gatundu South MP who has become an eyesore to women in Kenya. He has grown to become the perverted politician whose highly sexualized insults to women have left tongues wagging over the rate at which he is demeaning women at every corner he encounters them. From journalists to his fellow women counterparts, Moses Kuria finds satisfaction in seeing and causing misery in women to the level of inflicting them with physical injuries. A violence evoking politician.
To the Gatundu South MP, women are weaklings and must remain so. No woman should question or disagree with him and if you do, you shall forever remember who Moses Kuria is by the fists he will use on you. This was the fate of one Joyce Wanja, of whom is alleged Moses Kuria assaulted and verbally abused, hurling insults at her. According to sources and further confirmed by the victim, Moses Kuria descended on her with slaps and blows because she offered to correct the MP over inappropriate and derogatory statements he had made in front of children and faithfuls who had gathered to raise funds for orphans. The lady was beaten up by the MP and fell to the ground, only being helped by those who had accompanied her to Royal Media Services where they had been invited to discuss other political matters.

With no respect for the law, no respect for women and no respect for media, Moses Kuria pounced on a helpless lady whose only power is her voice and her activism. Joyce Wanja being an activist and political commentator has chosen to speak out and is crying out for justice. Understanding that money can change hands, Joyce Wanja is calling on the DPP and DCI to bring this politician to book. Many have gone through the hands of such crooked leaders and just recently, the country witnessed Mumias Member of Parliament Ben Washiali pouncing on a resident, where he smirked his head and up to date has never been reported as an assault. What gives leaders like Moses Kuria the right to hurl insults and physically abuse their own voters?
Moses Kuria openly abuses women, even on altars and in front of religious leaders. The MP openly abuses his counterparts such as Gathoni Wa Muchomba and Millie Odhiambo. Time and time again this has been the norm, and now he has reached the level of using his fists and hands on them. He refers to women as prostitutes and hurls highly sexualized insults on them. This legislator needs to be brought to book. Justice needs to prevail and Kenyans want to see an end to this. Leaders must lead by example and what Moses Kuria is evoking, is in pure disregard of the law and uncouth behavior.
Women have rights and must be respected. The legal authorities must take action against this leader who has purposely become oppressive to women. History has it that an abusive man especially towards women, has undealt background and childhood issues that have majorly gone unresolved. Besides being arrested and charged in court, Moses Kuria should pay attention to his mental health and seek psychiatric help.
A formidable leader, astute and focused with no room for compromise with a credible record of leadership and integrity has displayed and proven to Kenyans that he is indeed justified and worthy of being voted in as Kenya’s fifth president. A mark of perfection at its best. A leader who has grown with Kenyans and understands their plight emerging as a hustler and growing progressively into stardom in his political career. William Samoei Ruto is the unbeatable man to beat in Kenya’s next general election.
It is no longer a guarded secret that Ruto is Kenya’s next president. A leader with a difference who will catapult the country towards a middle-income economy and set Kenya as the super Silicon Valley in the global sphere. The country will spew with investors and donors as they will have a guaranteed environment of political stability free of corruption as Ruto is a no-nonsense leader and politician when it comes to corruption. Zero-tolerance to corruption will be his mantra as he has purposed that he will not relent on the war on graft.
Top on his list when he comes into offices is the issue of land grabbing that has become a menacing problem in the country, as politicians have immensely grabbed land from all quarters. Just as his ally, Oscar Sudi, recently commented on the habitual theft of resources in the country by leaders, land is among those greatly affected as many have cried and died because of stolen and grabbed land. Despite his name adversely mentioned on land grabbing cases, Dr. Ruto is determined to put a stop to Kenya’s frustrations by merging the Ministry of Lands with State House, as this will facilitate better foresight of land issues in Kenya and settling of the landless especially the IDPs.
To show his gallant support on the war on graft Ruto will return the illegally acquired Weston land back to the children of Lang’ata Primary School who have so far lost their playground. Among key areas he will focus on is the Ndung’u Land Report which he plans to implement as it will facilitate a resolve to the numerous historical land injustices experienced over the years. Through the merger, cases of land grabbing according to him will become a thing of the past.
Confessing that the war on corruption requires a dictator and someone who stands firm on ground, Ruto’s fight on corruption will be that of results as he plans to ultimately jail the corrupt. Claiming that the current war on corruption has degenerated into impunity, Ruto will instill integrity in the war on corruption and avoid instances where innocent Kenyans such as Henry Rotich, Ferdinand Waititu and Ben Chumo, who are his allies, are targeted and defamed as a result of graft accusations. As reiterated in one of his political meetings in Kapng’etuny in Ainamoi constituency,
The fight against corruption must proceed on the basis of correct information and by competent institutions that have the constitutional mandate and institutional capacity so that we can have results.
Besides corruption, Ruto is keen on uniting Kenyans in both the leadership and the citizenry and promises to avoid any derogatory comments against his fellow leaders. This will also be resonated by his allies who all understand that the President and his presidency must be respected and treated accordingly. Additionally, despite the endless feuds between the Luos and Kalenjins, Ruto has vowed to unite the two communities and urged leaders to follow his trail as he will be the ultimate symbol of peace and stability.
What follows suit is that just like himself, Ruto plans to trasform the many hustlers in the country to millionaires as he understands well that a hustling nation cannot be a suffering nation.
A Ruto presidency is promising and it will be the beginning of a new dawn and a new Kenya!
Self-proclaimed NRM General Miguna Miguna who had been blocked by Germany Authorities from boarding a Kenyan bound flight at the Frankfurt Airport on Tuesday morning is relieved after Kenyan authorities lifted the red alert on his head.
Miguna was scheduled to board a Lufthansa flight at 11:20 AM (German time) and arrive in Nairobi at 9:25 PM tonight.
But a few minutes after 8 AM, the General informed his lawyer Dr. John Khaminwa that he had been blocked by authorities from boarding the plane.
“We have just received a call from Miguna that the German authorities have stopped him from boarding the plane because the Kenyan government has not communicated with them at all,” Khaminwa is quoted to have said.
The lawyer further said he had reached Kenyan Authorities in an attempt to solve the stalemate before the flight departs.
According to Journalist Robinson Njogu, German authorities cannot allow Miguna to board a flight to Kenya or any other African country because there is a red alert on his head.
When he was controversially deported in March 2018, the government of Kenya as norm dictates, had declared Miguna a threat and issued the red alert at international airports.
The government has since lifted the ban and is handling the matter at the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
