In today's Sunday Nation, Eldoret north MP has been labelled as President Kibaki's 'Mr. Fix it'. There couldn't have been a better title than that because I believe that's just what he is, a mr fix it. One who is just been used by a very clever president to fulfill the old man's revenge against the man who almost cost him the presidency three years ago. Never in Kibaki's wildest dreams has he seen a Ruto presidency. Perhaps lets go to the genesis of this game between the president and prime minister. In 2008, the people who almost cost the president his throne leaving aside the leaders, are the kalenjin. Rift valley was on fire, literally, and virtually ungovernable.If the president is in his right mind, which I believe he is, then he has not forgotten that.
The president is equipped with vast evidence on his desk which I believe would give the ICC judges a walk in the park in sealing Ruto's fate. The question is, how can the president know too much about his new found ally and hand him the keys to statehouse? The answer is straight foward, he cant and will never hand the keys to Ruto. The president is only human and for that he will stand by his people back in central who will never accept this man Ruto, or at least Lucy, who has a more fragile heart will persuade him to. So what is Ruto's role in Kibaki's succession plan and what is the succession plan.
Its said that you cant teach an old dog new tricks. Kibaki is the old dog and the new trick is nationalism. What the president has not started to comprehend is that tribal politics have no place anymore. I can bet Uhuru is Kibaki's sole heir according to the old man. Ruto is a strategic ally been made to believe that he has a chance of getting the throne. As you will find out in the coming months, he will stick with this belief until the final minute when he will in fact realise he was been used all along and at that moment it will be impossible for him to defect. He will start singing UK's praises throughout the country.
What the Kikuyu will never do in any foreseeable future is to forgive Ruto for what he did three years ago and am sure we all know that the president is a kikuyu. With the tribalism part of it and the events of 2008, Ruto has no room in state house come 2013 in the presidents plan. The fact that guides the president in his close association with the Eldoret north Mp will and has always been the numbers he can deliver for Uhuru.
