Why defeating Ruto in polls is a patriotic duty

Why defeating Ruto in polls is a patriotic duty

By Correspondent

If Kenya’s Deputy President William Samoei Ruto (pictured) wins this year's presidential race, he would have executed a bloodless coup planned many years back but "democratically" executed on election day.

Ruto had planned the coup a couple of years into Jubilee Party first term in power.

He started planning a takeover right under the nose of his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta and were it not for former premier, Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga probably Uhuru would not have finished his second term.

The MPs following Ruto did not just wake up and start following him, it was all planned.

Ruto had planted stooges everywhere in the Executive, Parliament, including State House where he had people snitching on the president.

In parliament, he had strategically placed MPs such as Kikuyu’s Kimani Ichung'wah in planning and appropriation committee, projects were planned at the Treasury, quickly passed in parliament, contractor awarded, Ruto got his cut and it flowed back to the same MPs and the cyclic gravy train continued.

That is how Ruto ended up overflowing with money in Jubilee first term.

 He says Jubilee first term performed exemplary well. What he doesn't tell Kenyans, it was his pocket that was overflowing.

We are extremely lucky that we have a disciplined military and generally our armed forces and other security organs are not openly political, we could easily end up in a situation like South Sudan with two centres of power.

 A deputy president running a parallel government is not only a treasonable act, but threat to our democracy and nationhood.

Defeating William Samoei Ruto is now not only a civic duty but a patriotic duty.

 We must restore Kenya back as a peaceful democratic nation with one centre of power. Encouraging future Rutos is a sure bet for disaster and instability.
