Why Ruto is just heartbeat away from top seat

Ruto's visit

NAIROBI,KENYA: Unlike those who served before him as President’s principal assistant, since Kenya’s independence 50 years ago, William Samoei Ruto steps into office a more confident and secure politician. While Ruto’s predecessors were singly appointed by presidents and served at the president’s whims and pleasure, the President cannot fire the current holder of the Number Two slot. This means their differences (if any); Uhuru Kenyatta will be stuck with Ruto until the end of the life of the Eleventh Parliament. This is because the Number Two slot is now influential as the holder enjoys security of tenure – thanks to the…

Cabinet shock for Jubilee kingpins

UHURU-ADDRESS

Losers in the March 4 General Election angling for Cabinet positions will be in for a rude shock when President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto unveil their list early this week.

Kericho Senator Charles Keter, a close ally of Deputy President Ruto, on Saturday confirmed he was aware of plans to leave out political losers in the Cabinet line-up. “The two leaders have made it clear that they are not creating…

Kenya’s first weight loss surgery clinic has impressive results

Weight-loss

After landing a job straight after college, Nancy Mugure’s friends were quick to compliment her on the success her life had turned out to be. They could tell because she had put on quite some weight, unlike the skinny college girl they knew. Though the good times continued to roll, she knew she always carried her weight well, and certainly never considered herself overweight. Today, 15 years on, Nancy has tried almost every weight loss regime she has read about, with little success, and she has more or less given up hope of ever getting help. Lack of awareness According…

UhuRuto government: A journalist’s worst nightmare

Uhuru-RUTO2

The first few days of Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidency suggest the media will not enjoy his time in State House. The last 10 years have been a journalist’s dream. The government has been singularly undisciplined and leaky. One fact that is often overlooked is that at no time did President Kibaki preside over a united government. He came to power on the back of a coalition. Immediately he got to State House, his National Alliance of Kenya (NAK) party began combat with Raila Odinga’s Liberal Democratic Party (LDP). Even in 2005 when the LDP brigade was removed from the Cabinet, Mr…

Then, after 10 years, when I come back to Kenya, I’ll be much better…
