Deputy President William Ruto has emerged a loser in his pursuit to seek validation of his security detail downgrade in what appears to be a well-oiled scheme by the deep state to expose his vast estate, in the process silencing the Hustler-dynasty politics and resuscitating the lifestyle audit campaign which Ruto vehemently opposed in the past.
Looking at how the developments have turned within just a week leaving Ruto in a compromising situation where he has again to refute owning the multi-billion properties that have been made public by Matiang'i, then whoever planned the DP's security saga is a master strategist.
The plan appears to be as follows; withdraw the highly-trained GSU and deploy administrative police, let them counter and demand parliamentary intervention and finally, expose his multi-billion properties.
It is evident that everything as per the scheme was achieved forcing Ruto to be a man in denial.
In what has been interpreted as damage control, the deputy President through his communications secretary, David Mugonyi has accused the interior cabinet secretary for spreading falsehoods and lies against him.
Mugonyi while speaking on behalf of his boss claimed that it was reckless on the part of Matiang'i to link Ruto to some of the properties which he termed as a strange and unknown. Really?
Initially, Ruto's intention was to seek sympathy and defence from Parliament, but now he is the one defending himself against details that Matiang'i exposed showing how he has amassed so much wealth within just a short period of time.
As we speak, fiery Narok senator Ledama Ole Kina has already raised integrity questions against Ruto over the ADC Laikipia Mutara ranch measuring 6,073 acres which he claims belongs to the Maa community.
According to Olekina, he had raised issues about the ADC land in the senate sometime back and land's Chief Administrative Secretary, Mr Mungaru informed that the land was reverted back to the Maa community which is not the case.
Ole Kina has since called on the need to have a lifestyle audit and that nobody should be left out.
If Ruto and his allies would have read between the lines, it would have been prudent to let the matter concerning his security downgrade rest, but since he didn't suspect anything, the damage has already occurred hence deep state has won
