I am increasingly receiving inquiries why I have gone “missing” on the blogs, including right here at UT and the answer is simply because I am on vacation. Those on Jukwaa know that I am nonetheless contributing there as time allows and do peruse elsewhere as time allows, too, should there be need to comment.
I was laughing but did not comment when I read some desperate “reporting” in one of the fora about Mudavadi and his visit to Kisii. While the boring speeches he gave were boringly reproduced in the “reporting,” the picture portrayed as this being some event worth noting was false.
No wonder the media did not bother to report on the visit because everything I am told it was nothing but a joke and that’s in every stop he made despite paying people to attend who did but in keeping with the true spirit of folk from the area, they would and told him ODM juu anyway much to his embarrassment.
Mudavadi should simply fold his so-called campaign and find better things to do with his time–unless, of course, being elected president is not his objective in which case he should still fold his campaign for even that whatever it is is that is driving him to jump off the cliff (and we have a good idea what it is) would not stop him from landing at the bottom of the rocky ground upon which he shall be politically shredded to lifeless pieces.
Mudavadi holds the dubious distinction as having been the shortest serving Vice President in our country.
He can now add another as one who also fell the furthest and fastest from the height of politics much because of his own choice enticed as he was and driven by the same impulses that led him to holding the first dubious distinction.
It’s said some people never learn.
Count Mudavadi on that list.
I didn’t mean to write Mudavadi’s political obituary today but there you have it; it was coming sooner than later anyway.
BTW, has my prediction that some noises being made by someone and his book were just that–noises that in time fade into the oblivion? I called for people to set to count-down clock for the 15 minutes of fame for this person to lapse and according to mine, those minutes are finished and the primary target of the book remains standing tall and strong as ever.
Can’t really say what a relief because many of us saw and predicted this to be the outcome and I assume the sobbing by those expecting the worst that never became is either underway or that, too, will come to pass.
It’s a nuisance that really never should have been.
