A true leader only speaks when it is necessary.
Deputy President William Ruto’s recent remarks in political rallies might make one think he is a president-elect.
Although one of his feet is already in State House as per the pact between him and President Uhuru Kenyatta, Ruto still has a long way to go.
It does not take a masters degree or PHD to understand that Ruto is an arrogant politician who fears no man.
Kenya needs someone who listens to the needs of its people and not an arrogant leader.
This country has suffered great loses because of leaders who speak without thinking about their words.
Ruto has clearly shown that he is not ready to tame his tongue and Mombasa Governor Hassan, who will lock horns with the DP in 2022, should not follow this path.
The Coast kingpin should fight for the people and avoid engaging in personal fights.
The war of words between the two leaders is likely to change the perspective of the people of Kenya.
Leaders such as Nelson Mandela, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere and Martin Luther King Jr only spoke when necessary.
Joho should emulate the footsteps of these leaders to keep his political fire burning.
