With age comes wisdom and this explains why a small boy on top of a tree cannot see what an old man can see while seated. William Ruto is a popular name in the country's present political terrain thanks to his political abrasiveness.
The bearer is the incumbent deputy president who is a stride away from occupying the house on the hill. His statehouse bound journey begun in 2013 when he joined arms with Uhuru Kenyatta. Through Jubilee Coalition's pre-election pact, the duo agreed to support each other for twenty years in a ten-ten year basis.
When William saw opportunity and greatness, his South Rift brother Isaac Ruto saw malice,deception and betrayal in the cooking. Isaac was a pioneer member of URP and Jubilee Coalition. As an elder with vast experience, ex-Bomet governor warned Samoei from taking certain paths but the latter heard none of it.
In a media interview with Tony Gachoka of KTN power Blank, Isaac plainly told the self crowned chief hustler to be wary of his political future. Citing history, CCM leader forewarned him that Mt Kenya basks in notoriety of playing political games and Samoei should not stake on them.
True to his words, things have fallen apart between UhuRuto and he has since been shortchanged with Raila Odinga taking his position. Unlike Raila Odinga and Oginga Odinga who were caught unprepared when Kibaki betrayed them, Ruto has managed to scoop a good quantity of the region's treasure.
William must have realized that his senior was but for the truth and for that, the duo have reconciled and his 2022 odds are increasing day in day out. Ruto is staking on his Bottom-Up economic model and hustlers to actualize his first presidential bid. The question if he will hit the set target will be answered by time itself.
