Dp Ruto has sent congratulatory message to the new president of Tanzania. PRESIDENT SULUHU has been vice president under the late Magufuli.
President Samia Suluhu Hassan was sworn in today as the sixth President of Tanzania at State House, Dar es Salaam following the death of President John Pombe Magufuli.
Her calm demeanor ,submissiveness and conformity has earned her respect across Tanzania. She was little known as her main assignment was to support and deputize Pombe,a role she played in distinction.
In terms of personality she strikes a contrast disparity with DP RUTO.
Ruto comes out as deputy full of insubordination, high-handedness protracted haughtiness.
To be a deputy President is calling unto humility if not humiliation. Take a leaf from Joe Biden served silently under Obama, even skipped the elections immediately after Obama’s presidency. But today, he is POTUS.
Kenyas Deputy President is completely the opposite. He abandoned the government and started disrespectful tendencies against his boss, and wants forcefully, come what may to be president. It does not work that way.
Suluhu has served from the backroom, diligently and with a lot of humility learning from her boss. She never diverted from the Magufuli agenda. She never gave her citizens WHEELBARROWS or started campaigns for presidency.
Now, Ruto knows, the God we serve is faithful. Bible says he elevates the humble and debases to the proud. That is why God has given her that mandate to lead.
Dp Ruto, if what has happened in Tanzania this week, had happened to Kenya, by now we will be have violence, houses will be burning, tyres burning. Because you have failed to unite us. And as Atwoli says, Kenyans will never allow you to be president.
