President Uhuru Kenyatta has been offered a rare tips on how to thrust his Deputy, William Ruto into political oblivion.
In an Editorial in his Nairobi Law Monthly – the Jubilee lawyer offered Uhuru Kenyatta, hand-sights on how to stop his hustler deputy from succeeding him.
“Only through a strategy of ‘mutually assured destruction’…in which no one survives.,” he avers.
The law Magazine notes with concern that while DP Ruto’s wealth could be good political weapon, but his new “massive opulence could be his ruination.”
He notes that one way of doing so was to have few elements in the government, who are allied to the DP face a thorough investigation related to corruption and misuse of public funds. This should include delegation of critical duties to DP Ruto’s enemies.
“Your best bet, it would appear, is to play the anti-corruption card. You will begin by nabbing and packing away a few fat cats from the top. If you could jail a few of these, the country might just begin adjusting to the possibility that there will be no sacred cows.
“Kenyans may even begin baying for his political blood. Hence, by the time you zero in on him, you will not be doing anything strange. If only one of the numerous allegations against him could stick, you could impeach him. You could then possibly – just possibly – lock him out of the race. And possibly is good enough, for now,” the magazine writes.
This comes under a backdrop of allegations that the President has in recent weeks allocated sensitive functions to various leaders other than his DP Ruto.
Shortly after the two took office in 2013, President Kenyatta tasked the DP with the role of crisscrossing various African countries in a shuttle diplomacy mission to campaign against the ICC.
Ruto would later represent the President in various international conferences including summits meant for heads of state.
However, in the past three months, Ruto has not traveled abroad with most of the functions that he previously performed being designated to ODM leader Raila Odinga.
