Mammoth Cord Crowd At Uhuru Park
Let’s assume for a moment that neither Uhuru nor Ruto was facing the serious crimes against humanity they face at the ICC and the question was simply, who is better experienced and ready to run the country from Day One: Cord led by Raila or Jubilee led by Uhuru?
The answer is simply Cord led by Raila as evinced in today’s nominations.
By bungling its nominations as it did, Jubilee confirms it’s not ready to lead the country were voters to make the mistake and elect them.
On the other hand, Cord nearly flawlessly carried out its nomination exercises and only need to redo less than a handful locations when Jubilee has to basically redo the whole thing across the country.
That’s Exhibit A Jubilee is not ready for governing on that basis alone, namely, they cannot even manage to have ballot materials to their polling stations!
Okay, Cord did also fail to deliver voting materials to their respective polling stations but these were far less few compared to the colossal failure by Uhuru and Jubilee.
Again, it’s not perfection we are looking for but relative strengths and leadership ability.
By this measure, Uhuru and Jubilee get a failing grade, Raila and Cord get a passing grade.
They should be handed the responsibility to lead the country come March 5, 2013.
Handing that responsibility to Uhuru will be a disaster for the country because he’ll reverse our gains.
The choice is that clear and let’s hope a majority of Kenyans going to the polls on March 4, 2013 clearly see that and cast their votes for the only right coalition and that’s Raila’s Cord.
It’s my prayer that they do.
