“You see, until you can be thankful for that which isn’t enough, then what you have CANNOT be multiplied into what is more than enough!!!”
“We are CERTAIN that he had 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread, without question…. then HE blessed it… when HE blessed it, HE BROKE IT… that’s when we lose count… we need to understand, therefore, that THE BLESSING IS IN THE BREAKING!!!
“THAT, THAT WHICH REFUSES TO BE BROKEN, REFUSES TO BE BLESSED!!!! IT IS THE BREAKING OF LIFE, THAT PRODUCES THE BLESSING OF LIFE!!!!”
“I have noticed, in my life, that the most BLESSED people I’ve ever met, have all gone through something that broke them!!”

Venting on Facebook, Tiren, who is a Jubilee rebel and against Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 Presidential bid, revealed that his support for 2022 will be pegged on an individual who will help farmers. However, he said it was still too early to discuss 2022 politics.
“My support for 2022 Presidency shall be pegged on an individual who will be ready and has shown the willingness to help the farmers.” “However, I feel that this debate is far too early to discuss now, we should focus on service delivery to our electorates,” said Tiren in the Facebook post. At the same time, Tiren further expressed his support for the handshake which he termed as “the best thing that happened to us as a country.” “I am in support of the President in ensuring that each part of this country is developed and no region should be regarded as special.” “Handshake is the best thing that happened to us as a country, it has brought stability and enable the country move forward,” posted the MP.

Monday January 14, 2018-Kapseret Member of Parliament, Oscar Sudi, has expressed confidence that Deputy President William Ruto will overcome all the possible challenges to ascend to the Presidency come 2022.
Speaking on Monday, Sudi said that the DP has his own fallback plan and has among others, been courting leaders from other regions to cement his Presidency.
He noted that not even the rumours of a possible betrayal by the President Uhuru Kenyatta and possible collapse of the Jubilee Party would stop the DP.
He downplayed the scheme in Jubilee which is aimed at blocking Ruto from succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta when his term ends in 2022, saying those holding such views will be shocked.
According to Sudi, Ruto is a clever politician who is most likely aware of such happenings in politics and is therefore very prepared.
“He knows there are those who support him and those who oppose him.”
“He has his strategies,” Sudi said. Former Jubilee Vice Chair, David Murathe, is among those plotting against Ruto’s bid in 2022.

Muranga Governor, Mwangi Wa Iria, was elected as Vice Chairman of Council of Governors.
The election of the officials took place at Movenipick Hotel, Nairobi, and was attended by more than 40 governors.
Oparanya is the fifth governor to be picked to head the council after Isaac Rutto (Bomet), Peter Munya (Meru), Salim Mvurya (Kwale) and Nanok.
ODM party under the leadership of NASA leader, Raila Odinga, congratulated Governor Oparanya for winning such a voted seat.

Monday January 14, 2019-National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga, is reportedly burning the midnight oil as he crafts a perfect scheme to stop Deputy President William Ruto from ascending to power in 2022.
Though the septuagenarian has declared that he is not interested with the presidency in 2022 , his closest aides says the man is spending countless hours with a dozen of advisers on how to stop the “Hustler from Sugoi” from winning the coveted seat in 2022.
Borrowing notes from the French Revolution of 1800s, Raila, who is described as “An Enigma in Kenya politics” by Nigerian author, Babafemi Badejo, has formed a secret “Holy Alliance” which comprises of trade unionists, civil societies and religious leaders.
During the French revolution, monarchs of Austria, Prussia, and Russia formed “Holy Alliance” to remove Napoleon Bonaparte from power.
Napoleon was an authoritarian ruler who ruled France between 1799 and 1815 when he was removed by “Holy Alliance”.
According to Raila's advisers, Ruto is the Kenya’s Napoleon Bonaparte and they want to form a formidable alliance that will stop him from succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta.
One duty of the “Holy Alliance” is to support calls for a referendum which is being opposed by Deputy President William Ruto and his political orphans.
Raila’s think tank is of the idea that referendum is being supported by majority of Kenyans and it is only the DP who is opposing it.
“Once Ruto’s loses the referendum debate, he will become weaker politically and Raila will beat him badly in 2022,” one of Raila Odinga‘s strategist told a local daily.

Tuesday January 15, 2019-Controversial political analyst, Mutahi Ngunyi, has given his cents on the ongoing drama in the Jubilee Party regarding Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 Presidential bid.
Speaking on his popular Youtube channel, The Fifth Estate, Ngunyi poured cold water on the fate of Kikuyu community after 2022 Presidential elections, saying the tribe will be out of power for 30 years after the forthcoming referendum.
According to Mutahi, the political rants from Kikuyu community leaders was a sign of panic over their fate in leadership after the 2022 elections, given that they have no strong candidate to take over from Uhuru.
"To the Kikuyus, 2022 elections is not an issue, to them 2022 marks the end of an empire, the GEMA (Gikuyu, Embu, Meru Association) empire which was started in 1963 and was rudely interrupted by former President Moi before it was continued by Kibaki and now Uhuru," said Mutahi.
"The empire is coming to an end in 2022 and the earliest another Kikuyu can become President is 30 years later, 2052, and this is scary to the Kikuyu capitalists and nobility of the GEMA empire," he added.
