Whatever Dr Ndii's motive was, when he aptly described what the sudden surge in unearthing the rampant looting in the Jubilee government is all about, during a recent appearance on KTN's #CheckPoint; one thing is clear: it's a very difficult time to be William Ruto, if he is indeed targeted.
This became quite evident when an attempt was made on the life of Yebei's widow; a hapless mother of three, all aged below seven years by then. It was an utterly horrendous attack. I know it because I was by then living in the same compound with the lady in Eldoret.

The Machiavellian brand of politics practised in most African countries and many other regions globally demand that the king moves with speed to completely vanquish or at least permanently checkmate the kingmaker immediately after taking over office. Jomo played this card on Jaramogi, Moi owned it and unleashed it at will, while Kibaki perfected it on Raila (his kingmaker) when he rubbished the 2002 pre-election MOU, which saw him kick Odinga and company out of government.
The archaic notion that dishing of top posts to individuals from various Kenyan communities benefits their entire communities is too outdated to sell in 2017.
