Moi’s granddaughter hits out at DP Ruto over Kabarak snub

a granddaughter of retired President Daniel Moi has hit back at DP William Ruto for apparently showing up at ”someone’s house unannounced”.

Ruto flew to Moi’s home in Kabarak on Thursday but failed to meet him after waiting for nearly three hours.

It is not clear if the Deputy President had an appointment according to the Moi family,there was none.

“There was a protocol fail on the DP’s side, you cannot just show up… without prior arrangements. Least forgetting that Moi is still a well-respected statesman,” Laila Denise Ibrahim posted on Facebook on Friday.

Quoting a sentence from a philosopher Machiavelli, Laila said Ruto needs to understand that nothing is so self-defeating as generosity.

“DP you need to understand just as Machiavelli wrote in his book; “…a prince should guard himself, above all things, against being despised and hated; and generosity leads you to both. It is wiser to have a reputation as a miser, which brings disdain without hatred, than by seeking a reputation for generosity to incur a name for rapacity which begets both disdain and hatred.”

Laila,however, asked Ruto to call a truce between him and her uncle Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.

“Seek out a different strategy and approach and get rid of sycophancy and people who are capitalising on your rivalry…” she said.

“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”

A meeting with Mzee Moi, to wish him good health, could give a boost to Ruto’s presidential aspirations and his claim to lead the Kalenjin nation.

Moi’s spokesman Lee Njiru confirmed that Ruto visited but did not see Moi because the 94-year-old former President was with his doctors.
