Open Letter to H.E. William Samoei Ruto – Deputy President, Kenya- By Dr. KN Jacob

“Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.”
― Spencer Johnson

Listening to you in the last couple of weeks, your heart is very heavy. Please relax. What are you lacking? Your ambition is not worth your life. You’ve dangerously stretched your heart. I know it. I suffered heart failure last year. Slow down my brother. The race to State House is not a life and death affair.

Vice Presidents Michael Kijana Wamalwa and George Saitoti perhaps had a better chance than H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta to succeed President Mwai Kibaki, regrettably, they never lived to see post-Kibaki Kenya.

H.E. Morgan Tsvangirai was widely expected to replace Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe. But his presidency never materialized. Albert Luthuli and Steve Biko never lived to see post-apartheid South Africa.

Pursue your dreams with moderation. Rachel and your kids need you. Kenya will be there long after you and I are gone. No matter our strategies and hard-work, promotion comes from God (Psalm 75:6-7).

Neither Uhuru nor Kibaki worked half as you do for the presidency. And none of these two presidents have sacrificed half of what Raila Odinga and Kenneth Matiba have suffered.

We plan but God’s purposes prevail over our plans (Proverbs 19:21).

I’m praying for God to keep you in perfect health and peace. Just do what you must. Don’t kill yourself to prove a point to your competitors. It’s never that serious. While you’re compromising what matters the most – your health and family – to be the next Commander in Chief, most of your country men and women are praying for the basics of life.

Proverbs 3:5-6 – Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.


Disclaimer: Message was in an open facebook forum and communicated to many of Dr KN Jacob fans who had mixed reactions but all in all applauded by many. The bottom line is however, the whole truth and nothing but the truth as we have never witnessed such aggressive early campaigns in Kenya before the same is declared by IEBC. The premature campaigns have caused deaths of many and left other untold stories. They have caused social media anxiety and hatred among people that have never met in life and we can only wish it will never happen again in the history of Kenya.
