When he was appointed Interior CS, I wrote that Nkaiserry would most likely be the most powerful Maasai after the defeat of Ntimama in the last elections. In a meeting in Suswa during the 2005 referendum campaign, veteran politician John Keen persuaded Ntimama to anoint Nkaiserry as Maasai spokesman. At that point in time, the retired Major General was a respectable and well calculating opposition politician. Indeed he was a rising star.

When I listened to him talk and directing the police to maim innocent Kenyans, I saw a retrograding man with no modicum of respect left of him.

The Maasai are the most respectable and renowned people not only in Kenya but also in Africa as a whole. It is therefore incumbent upon Nkaiserry to stop embarrassing them.
