Is it time to call Makau Mutua's crystal ball to account?

Professor Makau Mutua is a Dean and SUNY Distinguished Professor at SUNY Buffalo Law School and Chair of the Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC). He also pens Sunday Nation article which mainly revolves around the politics of the day.

I have always found Makau Mutua's articles and twitter outbursts wanting and falling short of the level of analysis expected from a person who has attained the academic level of a professor of law. His articles are often uninformative offering no new information, offers no intellectual analysis, limited entertainment value and his opinion tends to be misleading for a nationwide read newspaper. A good example is this week's article on Deputy President Ruto's perceived stalking of President Uhuru. Compare that to other articles by the likes of Dr Mukhisa Kituyi or Muriithi Mutiga or the other opinion writers.
