Why Joho should stop frequent attacks on Ruto
SUMMARY

The continuous attacks by Governor Hassan Joho on DP William Ruto on matters of leadership are unwarranted

He should stop nursing his frustration on Ruto

The continuous attacks by Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho on Deputy President William Ruto on matters of leadership are unwarranted.

The governor now seems to be working closely with President Uhuru Kenyatta after his boss, Raila Odinga, who is NASA leader, entered into a unity pact with him (Uhuru).

This despite the fact that details of the pact remain scanty to date. Joho should stop nursing his frustration on Ruto. He is not Ruto's match.

It is unfortunate that someone of Joho’s caliber is yet to come to terms with the fact that Ruto is just a stone's throw away from the country’s top seat and deserves respect from all Kenyans.

The governor should not expect that his attacks on the DP will raise his political status. It is annoying that Joho has resorted to use of abusive language, setting bad political precedent as if he is above the law.

The governor should also stop blaming ODM’s political misfortunes on Ruto, who they mishandled in the Grand Coalition Government. 

Joho knows well that without the support of Ruto in politics, NASA is not going anywhere and this is why he has been persistently criticising Ruto even on matters the DP is not involved in.

Those in Opposition should be made to understand that they have always thrived on corruption and kept their supporters poor in order to remain relevant in politics.

Leaders should engage in issue-based politics and not tribal affiliations that divide Kenyans. Joho and his colleagues in the Opposition should engage in constructive criticism instead of personalizing issues for their selfish gains.
