MURKOMEN, of all the people, genuinely loves William and feels his tribulations.
In his hunt for power, anything he will manage, even if it will be a squirrel and not the intended buffalo, Dr. Ruto must give Murkomen a prominent share that which the Swahili call “mnofu”.
On what mistake Ruto did that provoked Uhuru, Murkomen should understand better that there is nothing wrong Ruto did that would warrant this kind of contempt, the former is experiencing.
It is just an issue of convenience.
They are no longer traveling in the same direction or destination.
Ebrahim Hussein, a Tanzanian playwright in his Swahili work Mashetani, said “mpanda ngazi na mshuka ngazi” hawawezi kushikana mikono.
In the days they walked holding hands wearing identical ties, they weren’t in love as such, only that their interests converged.
Similarly, today, there isn’t any hatred. Uhuru doesn’t hate Ruto. He doesn’t find value in their continued friendship.
When Ruto parted ways with Raila, immediately after the 2007 elections, there wasn’t any mistake Raila did, only that their interests no longer converged. All those you heard/hear, were mere excuses!
Again, Kenya’s political history is awash with tombs of political betrayals and a lawyer of Murkomen’s caliber should know better, that there is absolutely nothing unique about Ruto that would exempt him from what others have faced in the past
Prof. Saitoti was Moi’s Vice President for a staggering 14 years. Later when Moi’s sunset at the throne came, he told the university of Warwick trained mathematics professor, on his face, that he was a friend, but friendship and leadership were too different things.
He instead fished Uhuru from some Jack Daniels den, spruced him, polished him, and handed him the baton.
Congolese musician Antoine Christophe Agbepa Mumba also known as Koffi Olomide, in his hit song Loi, said “lokuta eyaka na ascenseur, vérité eyaka na escalier”. This translates to “lies take the elevator (lift), while the truth comes through the staircase”.
After years of lies which led to incitement and hatred against Raila Odinga, the truth that took the staircase has finally arrived home.
The man who is holding William by the two hairy tennis balls isn’t Raila Mak’Odinga but Uhuru Kenyatta himself.
Tanga Tanga is wasting their anger on Jakom. The dog is barking up the wrong tree!
