Abigail Van Buren once said that; If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders.Am compelled to be suspicious of former president Moi… He must have come across this quote maybe while traversing the world, meeting other leaders or even at his study desk and never took it for granted.
He retired from active politics a decade ago but mzee still rules. His impact is still felt and his political blood flowing in the veins of Kenyan politics. He nurtured lots of seedlings; talk of President Uhuru, DP Ruto and Mudavadi to just but list the top notch figures in the Kenyan political arena.
How about ‘Baba’- Raila Odinga? Who is he passing over the mantle to? This man has been in politics for long He got engaged very early in his age. He became the talk of the ‘village’. His parents waited. The village kept the faith. His friends acquired patience… They all were thirsty and yearned for the baby who was never to be- The presidency.
‘They’ say he is the father of democracy. The father of Reforms. The father of the fruits that the ‘hague suspects’ are enjoying. I can’t dissent about this but Baba slept and left the baby with the jiko.
I have been thinking about the CORD nation more especially the Nyanza region (leave Kalonzo out of the question; He is a political prostitute who slept with Raila to get fair home). A region obsessed with Raila- He is the engine, the ignition key yaani baba na mama. One thing that the ‘Raila-maniacs’ need to come to terms with is that soon they shall be orphans. They will not have any hook to anchor their hopes. They will sway and sink deep in the sea.
If you think am crazy, tell me who Raila has nurtured to navigate the ship of his constituency and push the agendas he has and still stands for. Don’t tell me Namwamba. Don’t tell me his political cousins. Amepanda mbegu gani?
As my friend Tsomnyazi puts it, ‘I think Raila is truly a spent cartrige. No longer a useful ammunition, the aexplosive powder was all burnt on March 4th. Even his political presence doesn’t excite Kondele gangs any longer.
That is why am penning this call. A call to the CORD nation to divorce Raila and find a new wife. A wife who can deliver in the coming future. The current political gimmicks he is making are just but swing moods. The moods ladies express during their red period.
Don’t confuse the political statements he is making with forging and clearing the path for 2017. It will be the worst mistake he will ever make. An abortion and he will succumb to the post-election complications! This am sure he is very much aware but we the followers of the demigod we have made him are completely void and ignorant.
I commend the ODM young Turks who recently cocked the gun but the cry of the woman- Raila pushed them under the table. This is a fight that need a strong, ambitious and a sharp shooter to bring the bird down. This will be seen as going against the will of the people but the masses will appreciate in the coming future.
oh! Mr. Nyamare is yet to make any statement concerning the referendum call. Allow me to spit my nonsense; The referendum will happen. Not very soon but soon. The supreme law has some skeletons that need some flesh, put the Jubilee and CORD differences aside and discuss this agenda extensively. I rest my case.
