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.
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. She was just two weeks old in our compound, having moved from another neighbourhood on discovering that suspicious characters were constantly trailing her car.
The real hustlers can only look forward to the only thing that fuels them daily - HOPE for a better tomorrow. Hope that things will improve someday. Hope that their government will somehow lessen their burdens by reducing taxes on consumable goods, especially foodstuffs, hence making them more affordable to all.
The hoi polloi hope that their government will crush the monster of corruption, and come up with policies that will make healthcare and education free for all. Such are the sustainable policies that we want leaders like DP Ruto to put in place, instead of dishing out wheelbarrows - contraptions that were used during the stone age era.
