Manyora: Why Ruto Should Not Over-celebrate Court Victory

Professor Herman Manyora.

Deputy president William Ruto is busy showing victory parade having obtained a favourable rulling from the court of appeal on BB.

Yesterday, he asked the government to refocus now on the big four agenda and vaccination of the population.

Today he was in Kirinyaga county where he attended a church service together with his allies.

As the DP continues Basking in glory, he should be careful not to overdo it. These are the words of professor Herman Manyora who is a political analyst.

Taking to his YouTube channel, Manyora urged the Winners of Friday's Ruling to avoid utterances that may hurt those who lost.

The professor at the same time urged those who lost to to take it easy and avoid griefing too much.

Back to Ruto, Manyora who revealed that he personally didn't like the ruling gave the following reasons as to why Ruto should not Over-celebrate.

One, after Victory, there are alot of expectations from the people which many a times it's difficult to meet. He said this is the reason why many politicians fail to defend their seats.

He advised Ruto to be careful with some leaders who will be visiting him going forward because some may not be helpful.

Two, the BBI has been making hustler narrative very strong.

Now that BBI is out of the way, Ruto will find it difficult to attack the opponents whom he used to term as only interested in sharing power through BBI.

According to Manyora, the BBI card used to give Ruto a lot of points hence he should be worried that now it's no more.

Nevertheless, Manyora said Ruto can learn from Raila's 2005 Victory against wako draft. Through the Victory, Raila formed a movement and ODM was born that gave Kibaki a run for his money.

Do you think Ruto can use this Victory to build a movement that can sweep him to power? Feel free to share your thoughts and comments on this on our comments platform.
