Have you read the book ’48 laws of power’? It’s a good book by Robert Green and is addressed to primarily to those who seek power, and are addicted to it.
The Deputy President has been in Power for long, building his political career from the ground up, However his presidential ambitions to be the next president is driving him and along the way, he’s breaking the laws of power
Let’s have a look at some of the laws he has broken
1. Never try to outshine your master.
This is the first law of power according to Robert Green. It’s buffuling how the Deputy president has tried to overshadow the president as he chases his political ambitions. Often defiaying the president’s plead to stop early Campaigns and attacking the same government he’s serving.
2. Conceal your intentions.
This is the third law in the book. Ruto has done nothing counceal his intentions. Instead all he has done is shout from the rooftops that he will become president whether Mr Kenyatta likes it, or not. He has abandoned what he was elected to do and has set off to campaigning, even if the elections are 18 months away.
3. Transform your weakness into power. This is the 22nd rule in the book. Instead if surrendering as a weapon, all he has done is beat his chest and step on each law he’s supposed to follow.
4. Law 24; play perfect courtier.
Instead of following on his mentors footsteps, he’s blown this law. Moi was the perfect courtier under the then president, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.
Law 24; play perfect courtier.
Instead of following on his mentors footsteps, he’s blown this law. Moi was the perfect courtier under the then president, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta. He waited for 30 years for him to become the president.
Ruto is too ambitious to make himself invisible.
5 The last law states: assume formlessness. Ruto has done nothing but make himself a target. Jubilee is not only divided on his account but the country as well.
