  • Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has faulted economist David Ndii for allegedly advising Deputy President William Ruto to assassinate his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta in order to take over the Presidency.

    Speaking on his YouTube Channel titled The 5th Estate, Ngunyi brought to light the tweet by Ndii, a former Ruto critic turned advisor, where one user asked the economist the best route the DP should take in order to stay afloat and fight back.

    "Murder his boss," Ndii responded much to the astonishment of Kenyans online and political figures in the country.

    Ngunyi urged that DCI boss George Kinoti ought to investigate the comminatory claims.

    "If he was not my friend, I would have said that this guy is a psycho, in fact, one of the things that Kinoti would do well for this country is to go and establish the mental records of this guy," Ngunyi stated.

    The analyst also faulted Ndii for propagating the succession movement and disrespect towards the Presidency which he termed had spread its wings into the Ruto camp and subsequently the five-judge bench which recently declared the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) as null and void.

    "He spoke about it (succession movement) splitting Kenya into two, that kind of thinking has moved into the house of William Ruto, the judges are now in bed with the thinking of William Ruto and showing total disrespect for the President by calling him Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta as opposed to His Excellency the President," Ngunyi acknowledged.

    The analyst also weighed in on the options that Uhuru has after the court's landmark ruling on BBI.

    He argued that Uhuru can achieve the same results by amending the Constitution through a Parliamentary initiative as opposed to taking the bill through a referendum.

    "What these judges have done is that they have given Uhuru an easy way. Why spend Ksh14 billion doing a referendum if you can achieve in Parliament within a very short time all the things that you require and you can do it almost immediately?" he posed.

    This comes as the political scenario took an unexpected turn with the BBI bill been declared null and void on Thursday, May 13. 

    This has led the BBI proponents back to the drawing board as they pointed out that they would appeal the judges' decision.
