Kumekucha hangs his head in shame as Ruto defies his analysis yet again
If you have been a regular reader of Kumekucha you will have known a long time ago that Deputy president William Ruto is an extremely passionate and emotional man.
You will also probably know that only real men cry. Forget that cr** African children are brought up with that deludes them into believing that men never cry. Indeed let Ruto's frequent tears NOT fool you because behind them is a man who gets things done, indeed nobody else played a bigger role than the former Eldoret North MP in getting Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta into State house as detailed in my latest book Mystery Monday complete with the Yoweri Museveni link that turned an impossible presidency into a reality.
This is the man who has turned set backs into huge game-changing advantages again and again. You underestimate the man at your own peril (as even this blogger has found out and been forced to eat his words more than once). For instance there is a pretty amazing tale behind the reason why he achieved the impossible in the just concluded presidential elections and got the Kalenjin community to vote for Uhuru even as they still refuse to welcome back some displaced Kenyans to the Rift Valley. What he said to to the head-strong and unpredictable community in the Kalenjin dialect (detailed in my raw notes) worked like a charm. He is the same man who has outsmarted some very powerful and dangerous people in Kenya today (including the "dark forces" that President Uhuru talked about at one point during the campaigns). And he has done it again and again.
The good news for all Kenyans no matter how you voted is the fact that this amazing brain has now been unleashed on the enormous problems facing the country.
Hate him or like him this is the man who will be driving forward the agenda on our shores and making decisions that will have far reaching effect and impact on your life as a Kenyan. This is the reality whether you like it or not and so you had better start paying more than casual attention to him and what he does.
Indeed the story of Ruto is a modern day rags to riches tale made only in Kenya that proves the important point that anybody can lift themselves up by their bootstraps from being a nobody to anything including becoming the most powerful man in Kenya. Today it is hard to recognize the man with blood shot eyes yawning from hunger pangs and hanging around at the famous jobless corner near Hilton hotel barely 10 short years ago.
So the question that I am sure is lingering on your mind as you read this is; what did Ruto ell his people in his mother tongue that caused them to do what many (including this blogger) has said time and again was impossible? What role exactly did he play in the just concluded elections that I have christened Mystery Monday? The answers are astounding to say the least and many who have discovered the truth have said that to them it was totally unexpected. "Oh My oh My" one reader wrote to me in a recent email. It is a long story that I cannot tell here but what is important is to get one fact firmly on your mind; NEVER EVER underestimate Bwana Ruto. NEVER.
Admittedly there are many who are reading this and wondering whether this blogger has forgotten who Ruto really is, especially his dark side and the evil that he has done in the past. Well I haven't. In fact that track record is well detailed in my blog for posterity and for those who in the excitement and astounding achievements that are coming may be tempted to forget. Indeed this is why it is such a good idea to make sure you read Mystery Monday to discover the devious ways old man impunity used to bring confusion to what should have been a simple straight forward presidential election to find the successor of President Mwai Kibaki. Instead what happened is that there was a huge unprecedented famine as far as information from the media was concerned and some very clever people got everybody scared and singing peace, peace even as we shouted 'hate speech" every time some alert fellow Kenyan tried to give us information. The truth is that while the attention of Kenyans was diverted we were defiled and repeatedly raped.
It seems that we have all forgotten one critical truth. The post election violence of 2008 were NOT caused by voters who did not want to accept the election results. Actually they were caused by a handful of very powerful individuals who got away with daylight robbery in full view of everybody and did not care much that the price was multitudes of innocent lives lost. The voices of those innocent dead will not stop crying out to the Almighty from the blood drenched soil of our country... even if we pour heavy duty concrete on that screaming dirt and put up a gleaming prosperous twin tower skyscraper that will create millions of brand new jobs for Kenyans.
