Tuesday June 2, 2020 – Allies of Deputy President William Ruto have warned him of betrayal ahead of the parliamentary group meeting called by President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House.
This is even as Uhuru and Ruto rekindled their bromance during the 57th Madaraka Day celebrations.
The duo shared light moments including matching outfits – black suits, white shirts, and red dotted ties.
But according to Ruto’s allies, the rekindled bromance was a preamble for the betrayal that was to come – with the expected ejection of Ruto’s allies from House leadership positions.
Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, drew comparisons from the Biblical tale of Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus with a kiss.
“Today we had enough smiles.”
“Tonight is the night of long knives.”
“The victims have accepted with grace.”
“I am very proud of my outgoing team.”
“We have done this country great.”
“I am heartened by the valour, fortitude and humility with which the axed leaders have taken this betrayal,” he noted.
Seconding these thoughts, Kiharu MP, Ndindi Nyoro, stated that the purge was moving to the National Assembly, then to the Cabinet.
“Traps come with smiles.”
“Expect a bloody week ahead.”
“It starts tomorrow with National Assembly and by end of the week, half the cabinet will be gone,” he stated.
Former Senate Majority Leader, Kipchumba Murkomen, said that it was all a trap and there was nothing to celebrate.
“The President confirmed that removing MPs from the various positions will make us do better and deliver the Big Four in the remaining 2 years.”
“We are waiting,” he posted.
The legislators stated that since the President was committed to making the changes, they will be supporting his agenda so as to allow him “to grow the economy to double digits” as they had promised in 2013.
“We hope the economy will now grow by 18 per cent – with compliant rubber stamps, no more blame games.”
“To our comrades at arms, we must have cold prudent judgement, courage while challenged and total commitment to the mission,” Nyoro noted.
