Managing Director of Africa Economics and a controversial government critic David Ndii has given Deputy President William Ruto a difficult idea so as to win over the support of the Larger Mt Kenya region.
Speaking as coming from the region, the economist director offered to personally negotiate with the Kikuyu community if DP Ruto and his Tanga Tanga gang would be brave enough to confess, ask forgiveness then commit to return the enormous wealth they have stolen/embezzled over the past years.
“Ruto and his gang should confess, seek forgiveness, and atone by returning what they have stolen. If they commit to do so, we must promise them amnesty on condition they refrain public office. We can then join forces to drive dynasties out. I volunteer to negotiate the deal.” Ndii tweeted.
The economist was reacting to a fiercest Ruto supporter John Kariz who had claimed its only the Deputy President who is capable of dealing with a combined coalition of Uhuru, Raila and Gideon Moi and dismantle the dynasties.
The deputy president is currently entangled in the confusion of the aftermath of a handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his former rival Raila Odinga, as well as Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) political conundrums, a litany of corruption cases against his allies all in line to stop his 2022 presidential bid.
William Ruto’s charm offensive in Central Kenya is facing a huge obstacle in Uhuru Kenyatta after the president renegaded on his promise to endorse the deputy president as was christened in the infamous quote “yangu kumi yako kumi”.
Currently, the few Mt Kenya leaders who are seen as supporting the deputy president are being axed one after the other in an ongoing Uhuru’s jubilee purge that began with the impeachment of Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu, then Susan Kihika and now Kithure Kindiki.
Despite the overtly bumpy ride he is going through to win the presidency, DP Ruto has now been left to bulldoze his way to get the support by himself.
He has found himself in the same position like the then Prime Minister Raila Odinga who once declared he would sort the Kalenjin vote himself hoping the larger community would defy their Kingpin to support his bid.
The daring challenge David Ndii is posting for the deputy president is obviously an impossibility and tantamount to unsolicited advice that he can’t get the support of Mt Kenya as many around him make him to believe.
