Ruto Badly 'Undressed' In Public As His Political Fate Is Prophesied

Deputy President William Ruto has attracted love and hatred in equal measures from all factions of the country since his fallout with his boss President Uhuru.

He has since turned into a government critic as he has announced his biggest move to beat the government's candidature come 2022 as he has declared his interest for the top most seat in the country.

The journey might not be a walk in the park for him as many political pundits and opinion leaders gauging his possibilities of landing the top most prize in the country seem to view it as almost impossible.

The recent of all is an opinion article by Wycliffe Muga who undressed the DP's education desire and event went further to prophesy his political fate in the country, whether he will be president or not.

Muga claims that what the DP has exhibited is his thirst for education degrees without paying attention or reviewing the political history of this nation.

All these he blamed on the Ruto's PHD in plant ecology that possibly made him the Agriculture minister before he was fired revealing that him missing the history of this nation is because he studied no political or history course.

"This was done - no doubt - in fulfillment of a childhood dream, as he has long passed the stage in life when such a PHD is a practical requirement for any job he might seek." Muga wrote in the opinion article.

Muga stated that Ruto's PHD might have been useful then but his lack of studying history will play for his downfall come 2022.

"Now, here is where a deep irony arises. Dr Ruto’s PhD is in Plant Ecology. Which might have been useful if he aspired to be the Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture. But as he wants to be president, what he should have studied right up to a PhD in history," the writer said.

He noted that there is like an unbreakable pattern in the Kenyan political history that if Ruto could have studied would have saved him alot.

Muga claimed that the pattern is every legislator fresh from the vice president seat first occupies the opposition seat before any progress in his political path. He went ahead and cited various examples of VC's in the country who ended up in the opposition since the old days.

"To give but one example of what I mean here, I would point out that a proper study of Kenyan history would have revealed to him that the moment President Uhuru Kenyatta won his second term as president (in all ways assisted by Dr Ruto) – from that point, Ruto, as his deputy, was on his way to the political opposition".

Muga who went ahead and analysed Musalia Mudavadi and Kalonzo Musyoka who are currently in opposition were at one point Vice Presidents in the nation.

"Retired President Mwai Kibaki, was the first VP to our second president, the late Daniel Moi. Kibaki too ended up as an opposition party leader. The late George Saitoti, Moi’s longest-serving VP, also ended up in the opposition," he said.

After exposing all the downfalls awaiting Ruto and how his past will not play in his favor, Muga posed a question asking if whether Ruto thinks this time it will be different.

"Why then would Dr. Ruto have imagined that his fate would be any different?" he posed
