Who else is concerned with the newly acquired arrogance in the ODM ranks, online and offline, insulting everyone who is opposed to Baba’s move.
True Kalonzo sold the country in 2007, precipitating the worst violence we have ever witnessed.
True Mudavadi made a miscalculated but financially lucrative move in 2013.
If Baba decides to betray everyone at last, it is his right.
The people responsible for the ruining of the country will never want to see a united opposition, and always do anything in their powers to scuttle it.
Moi did it in 1992, and 1997. In 2002, the opposition, learning from Zambia united and kicked the Moi out. In 2007 and 2013, the guys who run Kenya knew that if you take one plank from the opposition, you can weaken it and then rig elections.
2017, was a pivotal period that is now about to be washed down.
I have enjoyed Kalonzo Musyoka’s resolve the last 6 years. I have loved Mudavadi’s rediscovery of his cojones.
NASA was a formidable force and with a little patience, a little better strategy, they could still deliver Kenya.
As ODM cheers the death of NASA, and rightfully dismissing Wetangula, telling Kalonzo to go be sworn in before we can even talk, it helps to step back and think.
True, any time, there is a demo, it is mostly Luos who are ready to pay the price and with that deserve a lion’s share, of whatever goodies that come our way. Other tribes including the Kisiis, Kambas and Luhyias are always afraid of the police.
But they believe in the course and can be useful to the parties in more ways than one.
We needed to stick together, bring more on board, because, our enemy is not a tribe or an individual, but a ruling class hellbent in stepping on us for the rest of our lives.
By the ODM crew myopically cheering Raila Odinga’s Faustian pact, it means we have along road to travel.
Africans are so easy to divide, so easy to scuttle. Because we only think with our stomachs.
I dare anyone to abuse me and I will do to him or her what I did in Uganda last year.
