The tale of Kalonzo Musyoka's historical alter ego, Absalom

Kalonzo Musyoka says 'How I wish I was able to do it (take oath) right now" in the article below. Somehow, it has a parallel to this quote by Absalom, King David’s son.

'And Absalom would add, “If only I were appointed judge in the land! Then everyone who has a complaint or case could come to me and I would see that they receive justice. Also, whenever anyone approached him to bow down before him, Absalom would reach out his hand, take hold of him and kiss him. Absalom behaved in this way toward all the Israelites who came to the king asking for justice, and so he stole the hearts of the people of Israel.” 2 Sam 15:4-6 (NIV)

Caveat: Before bashing that biblical passage, beware that I’m not trying to create a doctrine just stating a historical fact from a verifiable historical document.
