We can all be William Samoei Ruto

We can all be William Samoei Ruto

A son of a poor man is standing in front of you today. This is the strength of a Democracy, said India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi in one of his addresses reminiscent of Barrack Obama’s election night speech at Grant Park in November 2008 where he pronounced that ‘If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer’- This can be true to Kenya come 2022.

In the next election, one of the undisputed frontrunners will be a man who carries the flag of the hoi polloi, the ‘have nots’ of the Kenyan society. A man who was born and bred among us-the poor. A man who rose from the very bottom, A chicken seller! 

This chicken seller’s ambition has not gone down well with the bourgeoisie of Kenya’s political spectrum. Those who helped him rise feel he wants too much and to them he was never supposed to explore past some positions. They forgot P.J. O’Rourke words that once you've built the big machinery of political power, you should remember that you won't always be the one to run it. The Chicken seller ran away with the mantle for Rift politics and it’s his for keeps- swallow that Giddy!  

Our politics have always been tribal as postulated by our elections and the results of those elections. 2022 will be different. It will no longer be about that regional block or this, but about those who feel the political powers of this country are for a selected few against those who feel it should be for all. The Kenyattas and the Odingas have dictated our politics for long. Even when not running the two have always had an influence like the case 0f 2002. Now the Moi’s are joining the frail which is a wrong feeling of entitlement that shouldn’t be allowed to stand.

William Samoei Ruto is the man to break the duct, the man who carries the hopes and admiration of the common Kenyan. This country needs a wanjiku in state house. Let’s face it, you can never be Uhuru in this country because you have no Kenyatta, you can never be Raila because you have no Odinga nor can you be Musalia because you have no Mudavadi but we can all be Ruto because like him our fathers don’t own the means.
