Opinion: Important Lesson DP Ruto Has Taught His Former Boss Raila Odinga

With vast political experience to pride of, Raila Odinga is a mentor to many and whoever his midas hand touches shines bright, politically that's.

Of the finest political brains Raila's school has produced is Kenya's first Deputy president William Ruto. The later has lived to Elihu's words (read Job 32:9), Elihu affirmed that wisdom does not come with age but it is God given.

Though Raila is Ruto's senior and political father, there is a number of lessons he should learn from his student who is currently shining politically.

Ruto was anti-BBI crusader, the report according to him had faults which called for inclusivity, exclusive discussion and agreement but Jakom heard none of it, to him, the train had set out and its either you was on board or not.

Moths later, High Court of Kenya ruled that BBI clarion call was unconstitutional halting the entire process. Things were to be different if he listened to his student. Ruto was advocating for inclusion of a local man the very man who could have saved BBI train from crushing. 

The constitution states that a Kenyan has power to start an amendment exercise but not the government and in this UhuRaila walijikaanga, its worth to listen to others and this William has taught Jakom.
