Good morning fellow Kenyans,
In the words of Siaya Senator James Orengo, indeed governments eat their own people and punishes whoever who supported it worse than its opposers.
Who could imagine that Murkomen will be a victim of Jubilee Party drama 2 years ago when he defended the ruling regime against the opposition about the very laws that have sent him packing?
Maybe Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago is right: Siasa usiweke kwa roho, weka kwa mapafu.
But that aside, allow me to send a message to DP William Ruto.
It has come clear like never before Mr DP that sugarcoating your bromance with your party leader brings nothing good than more miseries to you and your supporters.
For several times you have defended the president saying he is not part of the cartels at the Jubilee Party engineering certain reforms to your disadvantage.
Mr DP, David Murathe, the man you underestimated and called a busybody is having his political prophecies that appeared unfounded coming true.
Former Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri was sent parking for dining with you! Murkomen, Senator Susan Kihika and few other are now out of Senate plum positions for being your ardent supporters.
Dennis Itumbi and his team of bloggers the same. The list is endless.
Not forgetting, I am told the next cabinet reshuffle will see Cabinet Secretaries associated with you axed. Remember after Senate, the purge continues to the National Assembly.
Mr DP, enough people have paid the price for supporting you.
You can let them suffer this way as you keep mum cooking the next biblical verse.
It is time to face the bull by its horn.
This is a political contest, not a religious crusade where Jesus taught us if someone slaps you on the left side, turn the right for him: In politics, every blow deserves a rebuttal, not biblical quotations.
You have been dealt enough and it is your time to get back in action and show your adversaries what you can do.
Unless otherwise, the presidency will be akin to the coming of Messiah: we know not the time, when or how but we keep the faith and wait for his second coming.
That aside, here are our top stories today:
Uhuru Targets National Assembly Next – Raphael Tuju
Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju has disclosed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s next move in the purge against Deputy President William Ruto’s allies.
In a report by Daily Nation on Wednesday, May 13, Tuju confirmed that the chopping board was heading to the National Assembly.
This comes a day after Ruto’s allies in the Senate, Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo-Marakwet) and Susan Kihika (Nakuru) were axed as Senate Majority Leader and Majority Whip respectively.
Tame Your Greed For Power and Money, Sudi Slams Uhuru Kenyatta
The ouster of Senators Kipchumba Murkomen and Susan Kihika as Majority Leader and Chief Whip continues to draw condemnation from politicians allied to DP Ruto.
Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi is the latest to voice his disappointment; the vocal MP took to his socials to slam President Uhuru Kenyatta.
According to Sudi, the President stooped so low by engaging his juniors in a political dispute.
Coronavirus claims 30,000 jobs in the manufacturing sector
More than 30,000 formal jobs have been lost in the manufacturing sector and 80 per cent of the existing jobs are vulnerable as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to bite.
Manufacturers now say the job situation remains grim as the stimulus package the government unveiled takes longer to create the desired impact in the disrupted business environment.
In a report set to be launched today, the jobs assessment also contains several recommendations on how to keep one of the key pillars of President Kenyatta’s Big Four agenda alive.
Now that President Uhuru is planning to crack the whip on Tangatanga lawmakers, does his moves against the Ruto-allied MPs hinder the growth of democracy in Kenya?
