His deviant entry into Kisii, despite the earlier opposition and protests on the ground, his language while addressing charged-up crowds, and his reference to his government in the third person voice, while criticizing it for misusing the police, are all hallmarks of opposition politics. "Walisema hustler hatakuja. Nimekuja sijakuja?" the DP, who seemed pleasantly surprised and reinvigorated by the frenzied reception he was accorded in Kisii, roared out. The crowd excitedly answered: "Umekuja!"
In his unguarded emotional moment yesterday, an angry Murkomen revealed what he has all along thought about Uhuru. He thinks Uhuru couldn't be anything today, not even a village elder, were it not for William Ruto and his lieutenants.
During the time when the so called Jubilee "dynamic duo" wore matching shirts, trousers, ties - and God knows what else was matching under those shirts and trousers; Ruto was a co-president in every respect, except by name. Now, their bromance is clearly over and the once tight Uhuru ruto relationship is unmistakably in tatters. Theirs was akin to a man trying to share a woman with his boss. You know how such situationships usually end up. That was Ruto's POLITICAL SUICIDE MISTAKE #1.
It doesn’t matter what side of the political divide she belongs to. The dehumanizing beating that this lady got in the hands of four policemen, who are ironically supposed to safeguard the rule of law, is simply despicable. Period. Anybody citing the lady’s political affiliation to justify her unwarranted brutalization is a worse misogynist than those four criminals who beat her up.
As for Waiguru's impeachment; this fiasco has slowly taken the shape of a Tanga Tanga vs the Handshake Team duel; that is how the impeachment attempt became dead on arrival. the matter is no longer on Waiguru's hands, but in the safe hands of the big boys at the top. Politics being a game of optics and perceptions, the bigger picture always matters.
A good example is the recent impeachment against POTUS Donald Trump - perhaps the sickest president on earth today. It is not that the senators from the Grand old Party don't know that their president is sick. But, the moment this looked like a Democrats Vs Republicans duel, the Republican senators (who have a majority in the senate) had to save Trump for the sake of the party's image.
This is the same way governor Waiguru will be saved at the Kenyan Senate; not because they love her, but for the sake of the Handshake Team's image. Can you imagine a situation where the Tanga Tanga brigade claims victory in the event that Governor Waiguru is impeached? What does that politically portend for the Handshake Team in Central Kenya, as we head to 2022? Doom!
