Bumula Member of Parliament Moses Mwambu, has resorted to using a Bible verse to advise President Uhuru Kenyatta against dumping his Deputy, William Ruto ahead of 2022 general elections.
In reference to the book of Esther in the Bible, Mwambu’s main plea to the head of state is to remember the DP Ruto’s service to him during his time as the Head of State and honour his pledge.
“If you can listen to my words Mr. President and read the book of Esther Chapter 6, there is a king in the bible who dreamt that he should look into the books of history of leadership, When he perused through the books, he was reminded of his servant Mordecai, who was almost killed in a plot that had been hatched and honoured him by making him his chief advisor,” Mwambu stated.
The Bumula lawmaker further added, “I want you to remember that the DP, who is being abused day and night, stood by you in 2002 when most did not want anything to do with you, in 2013 and in 2017 when he was having five meetings before you even begin your day, that is the Mordecai I am referring to.”
The lawmaker also said that the President should pave way for his deputy to take over in 2022, advising him against being in government in 2022.
“I refuse to imagine that the president can sit somewhere and plan to extend his time, I refuse to believe that you are seated somewhere planning to be the prime minister in this country. I Mwambu, I refuse to believe, ” Mwambu stated.
Mwambu finally requested President Kenyatta to peruse his books of history and find out who had been consistent during his time in power.
