Kenyatta Snr was a NO NONSENSE type of guy. Ni mara mingi sana Moi alichapwa makofi akiwa Makamu wake.
Statehouse and President’s confidants used to slap moi around like a herdsboy.
Ruto ana bahati sana eti wanajibizana na Boss wake bila yeye kutandikwa kama umbwa, enzi za Kenyatta Snr. hiyo ingemfanya alazwe hosipitalini na majeraha makali kwenye makalio yake.
Not bad unawekwa kofi sita and you end up owning Intercontinental Hotel. And 2% of Safaricom. Imagine what Moi did to those who slapped him when he came to office. Jamaas skeletons must still be in Yala River.
That era of tin pot dictators and their side kicks behaving like demi gods is long gone. Imagine a video of some overzealous security baffoon slapping the present day VP leaking out. Mambo itawaka. That Rift Valley top cop who used to slap moi fled to switzerland immediately he became president.
Jomo used to beat everyone though, according to the old wives tales. He would hit them with his cane when he got angry during meetings. But that was a different time when authority figures were revered not just respected. In the 60s-70s a chief could cane you in front of your wife and kids na hakuna kitu ungefanya.
