President Uhuru Kenyatta has unleashed his Anti-corruption fangs targeting his Deputy Dr. William Ruto in a well scripted calculation to paint his image as corrupt and incompetent to lead Kenya after his departure from the house on the hill.

Several  Cases that targets alleged corruption scandals are now being unearthed so quickly in order to completely weaken William Ruto and his allies across the Country in an attempt to curtail their efforts to hold on their political bases across the Country aimed at cutting him to size and completely finish William Ruto’s influence in the political arena.

The Office of the Directorate of Criminal Investigation and that of the Director of Prosecution have started a series of investigations towards all  cases where the name of William Ruto, the Deputy President is mentioned in previous litigation which were either dropped through a technicality or where they believe that the cases were not conclusively or properly litigated upon or a proper due process was not followed.

In one instance the Deputy President was seen in the Television screens beaming with joy in court when a judge dismissed one the cases facing him because witnesses never showed up in court. In another instance its alleged that the Deputy President employed and gave a plum job to a Prosecution witness who was a key witness in a corruption case facing him.

In the headlines is the Ngong Forest deal where the government was duped to pay Billions of shillings for a public land which was irregularly hived and acquired through a grabbing  process and then later sold to a state Corporation the Kenya Pipeline, between August 6 and September 6, 2001 , by a Company Berke Commercial Agencies, having links with the Deputy President, a former State House operative Mr. Joshua Kulei, and a former Lands Commissioner Mr. Sammy Mwaita, but the case was dismissed because prosecution witnesses didn’t appear in court or were allegedly coerced to recant their statements and also never appeared in court or were uncooperative with the prosecutions Department.

The Judge dismissed the case in 2011 for lack of evidence linking the trio to the charges and to have received the money the State Prosecutor brought forward before him

Dr.Ruto and three other individuals received Kshs.272 Millions from the sale of the hived parcel of land and it’s alleged the Deputy President at the time received directly Kshs.96 Million from the deal.

The Former  Finance Manager of Kenya Pipeline Corporation, Hellen Njue was not able to appear in court and the Nairobi Resident Magistrate Gilbert Mutembei acquitted Ruto, Kulei and Mwaita for lack of evidence because there was no evidence linking them with the case and showing that the trio ever received any money from KPC.

This is another litany of problems one after another facing the Deputy President which is continually maligning his name and painting him as corrupt leader. In another case a close Ally of the Deputy President was allegedly forced to resign from Kenya Pipeline Corporation because the Government lost a whooping 11 Million Liters of Petroleum products leaked under his watch under unclear circumstances. Mr. Joe Sang a former MD for KPC is also under the DCI’s radar and is wanted to explain how 11 million liters could just dissipate under his watch.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has in the recent past refused to give an ear to William Ruto and decided to work with his 2017 and 2013 bitter Arch-rival Raila Amollo Odinga, who is now enjoying a full state security apparatus and recognition in President Uhuru’s government, and continues to baffle many Kenyans because even Cabinet Secretaries seem to be getting advises from the Former Premier from his Offices in Upper hill Nairobi in matters relating to Economy and Security.

If you want to annoy President Uhuru Kenyatta, just mention the Name of Raila Odinga, and the Building Bridges Initiative or the BBI in a bad light, the President and his camp, Kieleweke , will defend him to the hilt.

The Deputy President’s camp is writhing in pain and wondering the next course of action seemingly because the President has refused to listen to his pleas over the much talked about memorandum of understanding between him and Ruto before 2013 and 2017 election whereby it’s claimed that he promised to support Ruto in the 2022 General elections as the Presidential Flag bearer for Jubilee Political Party.

The Jubilee party, a political vehicle which the President and his Deputy  used to ascend to Power is now a dead horse which cannot be treated and heal in its current condition and is directly  headed to the Mortuary.
