The Star reports that Rift Valley MPs Accuse Uhuru of Using Differences with Ruto to Oppress Settlers The MPs – Ronald Tonui (Bomet Central), Dominic Koskei (Sotik) and Joseph Ruto (Kuresoi South) alongside Segemian MCA Wesley Koech said Uhuru would order a stop to planned evictions if he had the people’s interests at heart.
A bit of history:
In Jomo Kenyatta’s time, they wouldn’t even dare.
In Daniel Arap Moi’s time, they would have been guests at Nyayo House and if they lived to tell their story, it won’t be about Mau forests kukimia tu
In Mwai Kibaki’s time, they will be pinning this on Raila, even though it’s the very Kibaki’s government that ordered the evictions.
In President Uhuru Kenyatta’s time, this is what they are doing in total disrespect of the president.
What is he going to do about it?
We await but let’s just say the evictions are or must go forward as this is not about these MPs, their benefactors or their gimmicks over such a crucial national interest matter.
We have confidence the president and the government will do the right thing this time and ignore all the noise makers who are shortsighted, to say the least, and do that which is right, not just in this critical matter, but all others, which there is a slew of them to right the ship and put the county on the right track for a future that’s stark contrast of her dark past.
That’s what a visionary leader does and, to succeed, he or she must ignore those driven only by greed, opportunism, narrow-mindedness and the here and now, not the future of our beloved country.
That’s the leader we have slowly emerging but steadily so in Uhuru, much to the surprise and chagrin of many and should solidify both his image and legacy, which are at a cross-roads at this moment.
Which direction Uhuru takes us going forward, in the next few moths will define both, especially how he and Raila handle the BBI proposals when they are made public and the process of adopting them into the law of the land starts.
On this, we are also confident Uhuru will deliver.
Why wouldn’t he with Raila by his side, courtesy of the #handshake?
