..Ooh foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth…? Gal.3.1.
Whilst this country is facing unprecedented cash crunch with county and national government employees going INTO NEW YEAR without pay and without disbursements. The shilling is devaluing faster than the sun moves from the east to west. For the first time in 15 years, salaries of teachers and civil servants have delayed this month. Taxes are set to increase in January.
Now, Instead of the Deputy President addressing such a matter that is close to the heart of Kenyans, and especially people of Western Kenya, he goes to funerals to chest thump how he has 150 MPs on his side that will ensure he clinches the presidency easily!! Really.. For Ruto it is about presidency.. NOTHING ELESE MATTERS TO HIM.
Instead of Ruto strategizing how he can use the numbers he claims to have to enact progressive legislation to pull Kenyans out of miasma of poverty, he sees them as a ladder to his personal ambitions. Shame on us!!
More sad is that Kenyans who don’t have fees for their children as schools open in January, others who can’t access medical care for themselves and their relatives who are suffering from terminal illness, others who don’t have jobs were attentively listening to Ruto and laughing to his sarcastic comments on H.E. Mudavadi and Wetangula.
For record, Mudavadi has been very consistent and understands the suffering of Kenyans. IF he had ever had a chance of serving as deputy president like Ruto for 8 years, Kenya will not be like this.
Severally, Mudavadi has told Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto on their faces that our economy is ailing. That you cannot impoverish a country, make people jobless without money and kill its economy, then come back referring to them a hustlers and you as their Messiah. Upuzi.
If Paul was alive he could have written a letter to Kenyan asking us who bewitched us as he did for the Church of Galatia.
It is time we Kenyans woke up. Let us WAKE UP TO THE FACT RUTO SAMOE IS PART AND PARCEL of the failures of Jubilee.
I would like to declare that by Kenyans choosing William Ruto or Raila Odinga in 2022 they shall electing personal euthanasia.
