Deputy President (DP) William Ruto is a soft front of a very hard and strategic architecture of Kalenjin power.
Ruto and his smile is the icing, and that is all you get to see.
He is a veil that masks the scum in the middle. But behind him are ruthless mercenaries like Farouk Kibet, pick pockets like Oscar Sudi, war lords like Johanna Ng’eno, Samson Cherargei and Aaron Cheruiyot.
In the unlikely event Ruto gets elected, the likes of Moses Kuria, Rigathi Gachagua and Ndindi Nyoro will see him for the last time at Bomas of Kenya as Chebukati hands him the certificate.
