William Ruto takng oath of office


By Ambrose Ounyo

Don’t be cheated, Ruto is shocked, angry and annoyed at the Uhuru-Raila handshake.

What Raila and Luos never thought of, never saw coming cost them the presidency, and it is also what Ruto and the Kalenjins never thought of which will cost them the presidency.

What is that?

Because of land politics, there’s no single day that Luos thought of Kalenjins and Kikuyus working together to win the throne. They never thought that Kalenjins could wake up and vote for a Kikuyu. When they did that in 2013, Luos were shocked and annoyed literally.

But while Ruto was busy uniting Kalenjins with Kikuyus, because of the bad political history between the Luos and the Kikuyus, he also never thought that Luos and Kikuyus can unite and work together. Specifically, he never thought it possible for Raila and Uhuru to unite and work together. In his wildest imagination, he never saw the handshake coming. And because he never saw the handshake coming, he’s right now rightly worried if he will ever become the president of this country. His chances have greatly reduced and this will become more clear when Uhuru & Raila begin their rallies in Luoland.

If we don’t adopt a parliamentary system of governance, then you can’t tell when this vicious circle will end yet it should come to an end because punda amechoka. Pr 26:24-26 in NIV says,

“A malicious man disguises himself with his lips, but in his heart he harbours deceit.
Though his speech is charming, do not believe him, for seven abominations fill his heart.
His malice may be concealed by deception, but his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly”
