The political realignment of Moi-Kenyatta dynasties who believes in hereditary leadership seems to be taking shape again,an alarming criteria to diehards of the current Deputy President William Samoei Arap “Mashamba” Ruto and tantalizing taste to the opposition who prays for nothing other than their downfall at this juncture.
It’s a routine in a polygamous family,partisan allegations frequently erupts caused by delinquencing of one party in favour of the other party which in most cases ends up before Margistrate Court appealing for divorce.Refering to the rampant”courtesy call” meetings between the two families (Moi-Kenyatta)especially during this time and condition of overheating political temperature as just for “family friends check-ups” is trying to twist minds of intelligent Kenyans.This article involves every intelligent mind to spread and save less fortunate family and friends from surprise following this sirening break-up at the expense of political realignment which might lead to voter apathy to some extent.
The dominance of the Jubilee deputy party leader who is the Deputy President over the party leader and President of Kenya has not only been a nightmare to the ‘UTHAMAKI’nation but also headache to President’s mother Mama Ngina Kenyatta whom within past four years have been away from limelight.When she appeared,she was heavily coated with International scandle spearheaded by the CIA unmasking her sources of wealth generated from illegal Ivory smuggling and Charcoal dealings.
The two incumbents clinched power out sympthathy and tyranny of numbers from the densely populated Central and Rift regions being that they were victims or rather master minds in the 2007-2008 post-election violence case in International Criminal Court(ICC) and getting into power would atleast console them.They were birds of the same feathers courtesy of ICC case but non-compatible in terms of political ideology for future and governance.
After sigh of relief from the dropped ICC cases,the Chameleon began to camouflage back to its true colours (Moi-Kenyatta hereditary leadership).According to authentic media affiliates and leaked intelligence reports,Uhuru Kenyatta’s campaign consultants are behind bars utilising Ruto’s public tainted image in terms of incompetency to engineer his downfall and be seen as untrustworthy,incorrigible and luckily defect from Uhuru’s Jubilee party.Parting ways with Uhuru makes Uhuru politically irrelevant in the Rift region which is believed to be the strong base of supporters.But to curb political irrelevancy of the son of Jommo he went in search of Gideon Moi an enemy to Ruto,a self -proclaimed Rift Valley kingpin to send a gestured message to Ruto he can still have the support and do without him.Ruto being an automatic successor of Uhuru in 2022 as planned was fallacy according to the status quo.
The identified weakness intended to fight Ruto is of being Corruption guru and tycoon which will promote mistrust.It’s evident after Langata primary school landgrabbing hence the name “Arap Mashamba” by him just to mention a few.
During 2007 General elections,he made sure through thick and thin that Moi dynasty become dormant and irrelevant in the Rift politics which he suceeded after all lost all seats they vied for.But the rise of Gideon Moi’s popularity in the political arena has been a factor of reviving the families of Kenya’s political legends leadership illusions.Lately,Mama Ngina Kenyatta wife to the Late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta whom Daniel Moi was his sucessor gave a courtesy call at Mzee Moi’s residence in Kabarak,however much they tried not to disclose the discussion from the indoor meeting it was a gesture and mind game message.Its believed that the discussion was about the strategy to be put in place to make sure power revovle just within the two dynasties,maintainance of the goodwill between the two,ordeal of Ruto monopolising her son Uhuru Kenyatta.Days after,Uhuru and Gideon Moi held a closed door meeting basically concerning the August polls and in a week time KANU led by Gideon Moi announces its support for Uhuru’s re-election.KANU maintained the high standard of political suspence not decided whether to backup the opposition coalition NASA or the ruling party Jubilee but it was least expected to support Jubilee.The situation drastically changed after the two critical family meetings.It is so unfortunate however much former President Daniel Arap Moi isn’t in active politics but he still rules the country indirectly through his puppet Uhuru Kenyatta.
Joining of KANU party in support to Uhuru’s re-election has sent shockwaves to Ruto’s supporters among them MCAs, MPs,Senators specifically Kipchumba Murkomen and Governors whom were elected under the dissolved URP party formerly headed by Ruto and have threatened Uhuru to dare neglect his first wife Ruto then they will take appropriate action.The question is what action? Sue him? No.Definately defect.
Below was a message by a bitter supporter Donald B.Kipkorir after decision by KANU to backup Uhuru’s re-election
Moi was the prefered sucessor of the late First president Jomo Kenyatta than Oginga Odinga hence he was appointed as the Vice president and later on in 1978 after demise of Jomo he declared himself the new President of the Rupublic of Kenya under the then ruling party KANU.
In 1997, Uhuru Kenyatta won his first elective post as the chairman of KANU party branch at his hometown.A strategic move by Moi to fix him into national politics.In 1997 General Elections Uhuru contested for Gatundu South constituency seat but lost to Moses Mwihia and fortunately in 1999 Moi appointed him to chair a government parastatal(Kenya Tourism Board).
In 2001 when Moi was retiring he was nominated as member of parliament and later appointed as minister for Local Government and also elected first vice chairperson of KANU nationally.All engineered by Moi.
During 2002 presidential candidate nomination by KANU,Moi influenced Uhuru’s nomination an act of dictatorship.After the polls he was defeated by former President Mwai Kibaki,only managing to garner 31% of the votes.
After all these undemocratic sacrifices by Moi to Uhuru Kenyatta,the appreciatable homage to pay back is to shift power back to Moi family through Gideon Moi in 2022 hence the meetings.
Uhuru has stunt Ruto deliberately by allowing KANU to field candidates in all elective posts in Rift Valley against his own party Jubilee and has promised to make sure Jubilee aspirant vying for Baringo Senatorial seat against Gideon Moi steps down.This would be sidelining Ruto’s plans to bring down Gideon in the Rift politics especially Baringo senatorial seat which he begged residence to vote in a Jubilee party mole.But this is to make sure poltical irrelevancy of William Ruto in the Rift expires.The sooner Ruto defects the better for he will rest his case and fight unlimitedly under nobody’s control but his own.
