Ruto’s down fall has taught me several lessons:

  1. However smart you are, don’t try to outshine your boss. Your sympathizers and cheerers must not make you grow horns
  2. Take every advice from your boss as an order. Pretend to be a fool. Don’t defy any advice from your boss, however foolish it may seem to be.
  3. Never show your boss that you are eager to succeed him. Don’t expose your ambition. Exposing your ambition makes your boss unsafe.
  4. If you helped your boss to get to where he is, don’t remind him that. You make him develop a desire to finish you because you are a threat
  5. While you are under the protection of your boss, don’t take that advantage to trumple on other people. Do not be blinded by that protection to make enemies inside and outside.
  6. Whenever your boss delegates to you some power, use it wisely. Don’t show people you are powerful.
  7. Avoid getting into your boss’s back yard (bedroom).
  8. Don’t create parallel loyalists within the establishment. Try as much as possible to rally every one to be loyal to your boss. When the right time comes, the boss will reciprocate by transferring all loyalty to you.
  9. Don’t show your boss that you are endowed with resources. Let him know that you have nothing. Behave as if you are dependable on him
  10. Whenever you are given an opportunity to speak before your boss, say very little. Don’t speak too much and pre empt your boss. Just be a Mike Pence to Donald Trump or Daniel Moi to Jomo Kenyatta
