The Kenyan deputy president William Samoei Ruto is a man who has been described as a stranger in the house he played a key role setting up. If you think you are going through a lot of ups and downs in life, then think of your deputy president William Ruto and keep pushing.But as they always say, there is no permanent enemy in the field of politics. Your best friend today is likely to be your future enemy tomorrow. The deputy president president has been pushed to the wall. His ambition of becoming the Kenyan president in the 2022 general elections is going through different trials.
As Siaya senator James Orengo once prophesied in the floor of the senate house during a debate on Election Laws Act 2016. His prophecy came to haunt several leaders especially those who supported the Bill.
"Sometimes revolution eat their own children, goverment eat their own people. This goverment will punish you more than it will punish me, I am telling you," James Orengo.
Now, at no point did one ever imagined that president Uhuru Kenyatta and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga would work together. The two leaders hurled insults at one another during the 2017 general elections where Raila accused Uhuru Kenyatta of rigging.
Their handshake came as a surprise on March 2018, and since then, they have buried their political differences and embarked on an initiative to unite Kenyans through the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
The handshake between the two leaders is regarded as the genesis of the poor relationship between the president and his deputy. The deputy president allies view the initiative as a scheme to intimidate his quest for presidency in the 2022 general elections.
Likewise, the deputy president William Ruto was once a member of the ODM party and a political student of Raila Odinga. Even though they are political enemies today, it will never be a surprise to see the two leaders working together towards 2022 general polls.
It is not a lie, there is no permanent enemy in politics. Politicians like the former Kakamega county senator Boni Khalwale and his Machakos counterpart Johnstone Muthama were greatest enemy of the the deputy president William Ruto and hurled insults at him during the 2017 general elections, but they all work together today.
Even though there is a poor relationship between the president and his deputy, there is a possibility of still working together. It will never be a surprise to if Uhuru Kenyatta dumps Raila Odinga for Ruto since politics is a game of interest. Every politician is just following his/ her interests.
So Ruto is still not doomed as many people think. Anything can happen anytime and Ruto may actually can make the best laughter.
