Politics is a game of numbers and in this field there is a basic rule of the thumb in both military and politics. This rule states that; never trust an oppressed and bitter man with a sword. The sole reason behind this rule is that resentment clouds their judgement, and revenge overtakes objectivity. If the so call Deep state and dynasties are to choose between the opposition chief Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto, they would pick Ruto without flinching.
Raila is seen to harbor too much historical resentment which he thinks were done to him and his family and therefore cannot be trusted with power and interests. If he was to become president, he would have been made one ages ago.Raila Odinga is a power thirsty individual who has thrown ally after ally under the bus and he will not care what happens to you. He is an untrustworthy individual, a man out to have it all for himself and will always not want to be questioned because he thinks he is the law.
Since 2013, he has been lying to his allies about stepping down in their favor. In 2007, he dropped his trusted ally DP William Ruto in the shredder after becoming a Prime Minister to save his political life, while in 2017 he threw the collective lot of ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula to go it alone with Uhuru in the now infamous handshake.
This handshake destroyed the ruling Jubilee party and as we speak, the party is now in shambles and a huge shell. Jubilee disintegrated into factions; those supporting President Uhuru Kenyatta and others supporting Dr Ruto. It would be almost impossible for him to build alliances with anyone outside his ODM outfit and even those in his circle will think twice before agreeing to back him.
The truth is that, in the current political scene there is no politician who has the political balls, experience, and grit to pull the rug under the master tactician and strategist William Ruto’s feet. All these politicians trying to oppose him have zero strategies of their own only hovering the political skies like vultures with the hopes that the president will back them as he retires next year.
May it all be known to all that Dr William Ruto is no ones average politician, many political analysts have come to agree that Ruto is more like a political spirit. Those who think they have blocked him, are surprised when he goes right through their fingers. The late President Moi tried it 1997 general elections, Raila Odinga tried it in 2007, Kibaki fired him in his second term in office, also operatives tried to fix him at the ICC but all these attempts failed.
Do you think President Kenyatta will support Raila's bid to become the President and leave his Deputy in the cold? Leave your comment and share this article. Thank you.
