The News In The Latest Synovate Polls Is Confirmation the Mudavadi Project Is Going Nowhere

As any political student knows, all races in democratic societies tighten as the polling date approaches.

This is certainly no different in Kenya where even though Raila has been leading in every poll for a very long time, his lead as been reducing as you would expect as others fare better–or worse, depending on which poll you’re looking at.

There is no doubt Uhuru has been gaining steadily against Raila and anyone who’s not being partisan would readily agree barring the unusual, and as Raila himself has said it, this is a race between him and Uhuru.

Everyone else is an has been, except for Ruto who may still play a key role in the winning side’s prospects.

That does not mean, however, as I have seen others suggest that whoever Ruto support automatically wins.

It only means it will make it easier for that side to win for the RV vote will still be divided no matter who he backs and every indication is Ruto cannot deliver near the number delivered for the victor in 2007 (Raila) unless he agrees to back Raila in which case we shall have a repeat.

In other words, if Ruto backs Raila, we have 2007 all over again; if he backs Uhuru, the road to State House gets a little pumpy for Raila but passable nonetheless as Raila can harvest enough votes in RV on his own, without Ruto and in sufficient numbers to march into State House as our fourth president in a contest between he and Uhuru–or anyone else for that matter.

Note who I have not mentioned thus far in this analysis?

Yes, Mudavadi.

I have not because I maintain for the reasons I stated in Political Eulogy of Musalia Mudavadi that the man is finished politically even before he started on his quest as presidential candidate under the banner KSG State House Project.

Which brings me to this latest Synovate poll for which a few things can be noted.

First, on just the basis of the headline, I can’t wait to hear what anti-Railaists like David Ochwangi and others like him have to say about Synovate, which they have been trashing as unreliable simply because of it’s consistently showing Raila winning.

Will they change tune now and sing its praises simply because the poll now shows UK winning in Round 2, which I don’t buy, anyway, for the reasons stated below?

Second, and this is really key, the news in this poll is that even after being propped up as a State House project, Mudavadi is still at a lowly 7%!

Does anyone need any more evidence to vindicate my conclusions in Political Eulogy of Musalia Mudavadi?

Third, I have been saying and repeat again Raila wins this thing in Round 1 there is no Round 2 to speak of despite what tribal math peddlers claim or believe.

However, in the event we go to Round 2, I am equally confident Raila wins there because he is simply the better candidate than Uhuru; a fact even UK himself would readily admit, if he were to be intellectually honest.

Finally, but not least, the reporter of this story commits a classic journalistic faux pas in claiming, thus, “While ODM is still popular with the electorate, the party will be concerned about the growing public disaffection within the party that has resulted to defections to rival parties.”

There is no evidence that there is “growing disaffection” within the party that has “resulted to defections to rival parties” and neither has the reporter presented any.

What is happening in ODM, which is also happening with other parties, is exactly what you expect and always happens just before the general elections, namely, each politician wants to maximize their chances of being reelected and this is always a matter of local, not national politics, even though there are many instances where both are in unison in terms of prospects.

Indeed, I know several Raila friends vying for a number of governorships but may do so not from ODM with the understanding they’ll still back Raila in his bid for reelection as president.

So, let’s mourn the end of Mudavadi’s political career and get ready to root for or cheer either Raila or Uhuru as these are the only two horses in this race worth paying attention to; the rest are non-starters as they have already proven.

I am, of course, going with the assumption that UK runs and not chickens out in favor of supporting the Mudavadi project, a prospect doomed to fail anyways because it doesn’t follow as the peddlers of tribal math say that a UK support for Mudavadi ensures the politically dead Mudavadi’s coming back to life and being propelled to State House merely to serve as a robot controlled by UK and former Central plotters and salivating beneficiaries of the project.

HMK (Hon. Martha Karua) and others would beg to differ, I am sure for she and others have said they’re not into this tribal math and block voting plots and schemes others are breathlessly pursuing.

Raila gets enough progressives like HMK in the Mount Kenya region to back him up as they have indicated they will, he secures himself a second victory to State House and forever changes the heretofore dynamics of tribalism being a major determinative factor in how we elect our president.

That shall come to pass and I am sure most, if not all of us agree that will be a good thing not just for Raila and ODM, but, for the country as a whole.

The Jackal News Story About Salim Lone Writing A “Devastating” Book About Raila Is False

The Jackal News is carrying a story on its website claiming that former Raila communications director and political advisor is publishing a book which is will “devastate the Kenyan political landscape, particularly Odinga’s presidential campaign” that the Jackal News further claims has been “dampened by Miguna Miguna’s flesh-tearing tome, Peeling Back the Mask: A Quest for Justice in Kenya.”

First of all one must laugh at the idea of anyone characterizing Miguna’s book as a “flesh-tearing tome” unless one is referring to Miguna’s flesh as the book has been nothing but the undoing of Miguna and nobody else.

Be that as it may be, there is no doubt the Jackal News story about Salim is yet another attempt by Raila’s opponents to portray him as losing support, since these opponents are having such a rough time finding ways to undermine Raila in the political arena.

Sources close  to Salim, and indeed many others I immediately contacted about this startling story, say that the Jackal News got everything wrong about the forthcoming book.

The facts about the book are widely known, not just among political insiders but by the reading public.

The Sunday Nation in July of this year carried a prominent two page spread in its early pages highlighting the essential points about the book.

That story indicated that the book will come out after the election, and laid out themes the book will cover.

From the highlights, it is so clear that the book is NOT an expose and neither does the book go after Raila or for that matter his opponents; rather, it’s a very serious book which will provide an authoritative history of the decade between the 2002 and 2013 elections, representing objectively the views of all parties and political figures.

Salim, the veteran journalist and well-known and respected figure around the world would, indeed, gravely disappoint were he to pen anything other than a serious book we all can learn a few things from and certainly doubly so were he to pen anything like the so-called Miguna memoir.

Indeed, if Salim’s  intention was to discredit Raila or anyone else, wouldn’t he have the book published before the elections? Isn’t inflicting maximum damage what Miguna had in mind in rushing to publish his attack “tome” which has completely flopped as predicted?

Even the most junior journalist or blogger could easily have done some simple homework and got the facts right about Salim’s book, including Chatham House website that Jackal News quotes!

When Salim spoke at Chatham House, he highlighted the publication date as being after the election, and he clearly stated the nature of the book and issues issues the book will cover.

In that speech, which is summarized on the summarized  in the Chatham House website, it is clearly stated that this will be a book about how progressive change has or has not occurred in Kenya and what might be the best way to ultimately achieve it, despite immense obstacles that stand in the way.

Rather than the naysayers and Raila haters and non-supporters salivating for a “killer” book from anyone, including Salim, we all should anticipate Salim’s book with equal fervor but for the good reason that the veteran journalist and senior advisor to Raila has drawn from his experience and composed a book we can learn from and reshape our thinking and the way forward.

When we do that, namely, looking forward to books that build, not destroy or attempt to, we would have elevated ourselves to greater heights of political maturity.

Let’s hope so and wish good luck to Salim with this worthy endeavor.

Why Mudavadi and Uhuru Are Illegally Holding Office As Deputy Prime Ministers of the Republic of Kenya

Article 3(3) of the National Accord and Reconciliation Act 2008 (NARA) provides that “Each member of the coalition shall nominate one person from the elected members of the National Assembly to be appointed a Deputy Prime Minister.”

Under this article, Kibaki nominated Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila nominated Musalia Mudavadi to serve as Deputy Prime Minister.

While it’s clear as can be that each principal has the right under NARA to nominate one of the two DPMs, it’s also clear and for reasons that are now moot, neither principal can on his own remove either of the principals.

Suffice to say these reasons bring back bad memories about the events leading up to the signing of the coalition and how one side used its position to heavily tilt not only the coalition agreement in its favor but the ensuing power sharing.

Be that as it may be, Article 4(4) provides,

The office of the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister shall become vacant only if—

(a) the holder of the office dies, resigns or ceases to be a member of the National Assembly otherwise than by reason of the dissolution of Parliament;

(b) the National Assembly passes a resolution which is supported by a majority of all the members of the National Assembly, excluding the ex-officio members, and of which not less than seven days notice has been given, declaring that the National Assembly has no confidence in the Prime Minister or Deputy Prime Minister, as the case may be; or

(c) the coalition is dissolved.

There is no question ODM is the party with a majority of members in Parliament.

However, one must have just landed from Mars not to know that if ODM were to bring a motion of no confidence against Mudavadi as a means of having him removed as DPM, there is no guarantee that all of those ODM members and those allied to the party will vote in favor of the motion.

That’s our parliament and in case the one just landing in Kenya is confused or at least not clear as to why, it won’t be because those voting against the motion will do so on principle.

So, a motion of no confidence is out as a matter of practical reality to remove Mudavadi as DPM—and ditto for removing Uhuru.

This leaves death, resignation or ceasing to hold office as MP and dissolution of Parliament as the only other ways Mudavadi or Uhuru can cease to hold office as DPM.

The last we know both are still breathing so death is out as an option.

The coalition is intact, so, that, too, is out as an option.

The wise thing for Mudavadi or Uhuru could do if they believe in the rule of law is to resign but neither has proven to be this wise.

So, unless they both gain some additional wisdom and resign, resignation, too is out as an option, except by operation of law as I point out below.

Which leaves “ceasing to hold office as MP” as the only other way they can be found to be illegally holding office as DPM.

After weeks of whining that he was being denied his democratic right to seek the nomination to vie as president under ODM, Mudavadi defected from ODM to join UDF where he is carrying himself as the presumptive nominee no different than what he pretended to decry while at ODM.

To say Mudavadi is an hypocrite on this will be stating the obvious.

Having defected from ODM and joined UDF, Mudavadi is no longer legally a member of Parliament because Article 14(5) of the Political Parties Act provides as follows:

A person who, while being a member of a political party—

(a) forms another political party;

(b) joins in the formation of another political party;

(c) joins another political party;

(d) in any way or manner, publicly advocates for the formation of another political party; or

(e) promotes the ideology,  interests or  policies of another political  party;

shall, notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (1) or the provisions of any other written law, be deemed to have resigned from the previous political party. (Emphasis mine).

So, under the law, both Mudavadi and Uhuru ceased to be members of Parliament by virtue of their resignation under Article 14(5) because they both left the parties they were elected to Parliament and joined others they now seek the presidency to continue their love-fest with impunity.

Because they are no longer members of Parliament, neither Mudavadi nor Uhuru can legally hold the office of DPM because being an MP is a requirement for that office under Article 3(3) of NARA.

Open Letter to H.E. President Emilio Mwai Kibaki, C.G.H., M.P., President of the Republic of Kenya

VIA EMAIL

H.E. Emilio Mwai Kibaki, C.G.H, M.P,

President of the Republic of Kenya

State House

Nairobi, Kenya

Re: Open Letter About Use of Office for Personal Benefit

Dear Mr. President:

In a previous letter to you a few months ago, Your Excellency, I noted that you have served and continued to serve our country well, despite what happened during and after the disputed elections of 2007.

I also noted that you have done a good job in redeeming your legacy and that the only thing left to seal it, is for you to ensure peaceful handover of the presidency to your successor, preceded by a period of peaceful campaigning and elections.

While you have publicly not said much as to who you prefer as your successor as president, there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that you must have a preference and are poised to do whatever you can to have that person elected.

That’s all good and well for this is politics we are talking about and no one can condemn you for having a preference for your successor but you will remain rightly condemned and forever so if you illegally or inappropriately use your office to prop up or support your preferred candidate.

It is with this in mind, Your Excellency, I write to you because in recent times, you have either conducted yourself or have allowed your office to be used in such a blatant manner as to suggest you are ready to illegally or inappropriately use your office to do just that, namely, prop up or support your preferred successor.

This is not only unacceptable, it’ll tarnish your reputation besides not being successful as Kenyans are now more wiser than ever before and will reject any efforts by you or anyone to once again try and ram down their throats as president someone they don’t want.

You know all about this because you were with them when they rejected the Uhuru project in 2002 that saw you propelled to the State House as Moi’s successor.

This fact notwithstanding, it is now openly being said and not without plenty of anecdotal evidence that the MP for Sabatia, Wycliff Musalia Mudavadi is your own project to succeed you.

I refer to Hon. Mudavadi as the MP for Sabatia, not as the Deputy Prime Minister because Mr. Mudavadi does not have a legal basis to hold the position of Deputy Prime Minister, having left ODM, the party that sponsored him for the position.

You or Mudavadi can hide behind the technical hurdles one has to overcome to have Mudavadi removed as DPM but if you were to follow the letter and spirit of the law, you would have long ago asked Mudavadi for his letter of resignation.

Ditto for Uhuru Kenyatta serving as DPM—and that notwithstanding your part of the coalition sponsored him for the position.

You have not done so, namely, asked for the resignation of these two politicians because it’s not in your political interest to do so.

That’s putting country second to your political needs and is therefore no doubt un-statesmanlike.

It is now also being reported in the news, and Mudavadi and his team are bragging that you are showcasing the Sabatia MP in your upcoming trip to the United States.

More specifically, the Mudavadi camp has issued a press statement bragging that Mudavadi will “represent Kenya at crucial meetings and be a key speaker at high-profile events,” adding that “[one] of the key invitations is to accompany President Mwai Kibaki to argue Kenya’s investment needs case at the Renaissance Group meeting.”

If, indeed, this is true as is being reported, it is condemnable on the grounds stated above, and that is, it’s both wrong as a matter of law and inappropriate as a matter of good governance and policy.

Showcasing Mudavadi in this manner is wrong as a matter of law because there is no legal basis for Mudavadi to represent the country in any of these events absent a clear explanation as to the unavailability of those who must do so as a matter of protocol and these are, in the order of priority, the Prime Minister, the Vice President, the Minister for Foreign Affairs or even a minister holding relevant portfolio such as the Minister for Planning and National Development.

Showcasing Mudavadi in this manner is also wrong and inappropriate as a matter of good governance and public policy because, as president, you are required to be neutral in matters affecting your succession to the extent you are not allowed to use state resources to prop up or support your preferred candidate as that would be in clear violation of Chapter Six of the constitution and many other laws.

Again, and to be sure, you do have a right to prop up or support any candidate you so choose to succeed you as president but what you don’t have is the right to use the office you hold in trust of the people to advance such a goal—at least not as flagrantly and in your face as would be the case were you to showcase Mudavadi as it’s being suggested.

There is also no doubt when you recently had Mudavadi read your message of condolences at the late People’s Watchman Martin Shikuku’s funeral when the PM was also present at the event violated rules of protocol but that’s far less a violation as it would be if you export these antics to foreign lands, not the least the United States in this auspicious occasion of the opening of the General Assembly.

For these reasons, Your Excellency, those of us who stand firmly for the rule of law and zero tolerance for abuse or misuse of state office for personal or selfish political gain kindly urge you to resist the temptation to use your office to prop up or support anyone to succeed you.

Indeed, as earlier noted, Your Excellency, you’ll go far in further redeeming and solidifying your legacy if from this time on to the day you had over power to your successor you conduct yourself as a statesman and rise above politics to advance only that what is good for the country and no one can make a case that attempting to ram down our throats yet another project is a good thing for the country.

This is our prayer and may the grace of God be with you as you ponder these and other heavy issues you must deal with as our president.

Sincerely,

/s

Samuel N. Omwenga, Esq.

Congratulations to Namwamba, Ole Metito and Otuoma for Their Respective Appointments

Congratulations to Hon. Ababu Namwamba, Katoo Ole Metito and Paul Otuoma for their appointment as Ministers for Youth & Sports, Internal Security and Local Government, respectfully.

President Kibaki must be commended, too, for appointing a non-controversial or partisan hack to the all-important security docket.

Ditto for Raila in making sure MM is even more irrelevant politically speaking.

While no one can seriously think or argue that any of these ministers, except for Metito, will accomplish anything of substance before their terms expire in March, the appointments are clearly politically significant in that both principals are maximizing the power of incumbency to their political goals and objectives.

Ndhiwa By-Elections; A Win Win For Raila and ODM Regardless of Who Wins and That’s Good Everyone

Although all indications are that ODM candidate Augustino Oyugi Neto will be elected as MP for Ndhiwa beating his close rival KANU’s Tom Alila by a comfortable margin, let me reiterate what I stated at the conclusion of the ODM nomination process that Alila’s election would also be a good thing because both candidates have demonstrated they have the requisite leadership qualities to be effective representatives of this otherwise muted constituency.

The only downside with Alila’s victory would be what others may view as victory of clanism over substance but Alila can easily rise above this were he to be the one elected and chat a path toward nationalism by working with his party boss and others to make sure Raila is reelected but this time sworn as our fourth president.

Now, I have a great satire I initially wanted to pen about this to put in perspective pre-outcome what a Neto loss would mean or more precisely why it would have happened (in hindsight satirically speaking) but I have opted not to rather let me stick with that which I know is the more likely and that is, Neto’s victory come Monday.

We do not elect parties to parliament; we elect individuals who represent the party, it therefore doesn’t follow if a KANU candidate is elected in Ndiwa, he cannot work with Raila and ODM to bring about the transformational changes Raila and the party intend to bring for the benefit of all in the country.

Having said this, and given the PM has said he will not seek the presidency if Neto is not elected, I would urge all Ndhiwa residents and, indeed, everyone else to get used to saying or hearing the words Hon. Augustino Oyugi Neto for it’s as good as done if the master politician and palm reader of politics on the ground has all but said so in those words.

Good luck to all the candidates and may all the by-elections on Monday held in a manner as desirable as we anticipate in the upcoming general elections, namely, open, transparent and peaceful.

Update:

Since posting this blog, I have learned from an impeccable source Raila did not mean to say ““Ka ok umiya Neto kaka jaod bura maru to kata an ok abichung ekom maduong cha(If you do not give me Neto as your MP, then I will not vie for the top seat),” as reported by the Standard Online, rather, he meant to say if Ndhiwa does not elect Neto, he may as well not vie for the presidency which was merely another way of expressing his confidence Neto will win as opposed to making it an either or proposition as the Standard reporting suggests.

The same source tells me the PM recognizes Neto has challenges that may make it possible for the KANU candidate Alila to win, a prospect as I said which is not bad either because Alila is a formidable candidate in his own right and in the new political dispensation, we want and must commend and appreciate strong candidates who win on account of their leadership ability and not necessarily merely because they belong to one party or another or because they are supported by influential people.

In other words, individual character and leadership ability is what should matter the most when choosing our leaders and not tribalism or ethnicity or being “toshad” as has been the case in the past.

Response To More Rants and Raves From A Well Known Raila Hater and Basher

The following is a response to a well known Raila hater and basher in other Kenya forums but is migrated here for easy reference.

It is once again with great pleasure I take this opportunity to edify you as it’s my obligation to do so for all my fellow Kenyans in the deep with lack of knowledge when it comes to mambo siasa on the ground.

You say, “every ODM clown and moron on this forum has been telling us to practice for a Raila Presidency.” As the one who wisely thought about this wise counsel, let me first take the opportunity to correct your misguided notion that this wise counsel can ever possibly come from a clown or moron; no, my nephew. This wise counsel comes from those graying and full of wisdom such as yours truly so you had better stand up at attention and repeat the majestic words, complete with a salute for either you’ll be doing so in front of His Excellency President Raila Amolo Odinga after you get on your knees and he forgives you or you’ll be hearing it for a long time beginning March 4, 2013.

You say, “Kwani who between Uhuru and Captain Bandia has already assumed the presidency with phony opinion polls and violent outbursts to boot?” Two things here (1) Neither one of these has assumed the presidency yet but one can rightly assume Raila will be reelected but this time be sworn as our fourth president and (2) polls are only “phony” when not in favor of your preferred candidate; were the polls to show Uhuru is leading, you’ll have already bored us stiff reminding us that but we in ODM are humble albeit very pleased but don’t keep on bragging about the fact every poll taken thus far shows Raila is the man to beat and that he will be reelected as president if elections were to be elected today. With that, one can rightly assume that Raila will be our next president.

You ask, “Who is going around the country intimidatint [sic] folks who refuse to be bamboozled by captain bandia’s desperados?” I am unaware of any; can you tell us who? The only thing I know Uhuru and Ruto early this year tried to sow seeds of discord as documented in Uhuru and Ruto Are Sowing Seeds of Discord and Laying Ground for 2nd PEV Unless Stopped. Fortunately, the two were stopped from going down this reckless and dangerous road.

You say, “Here you have Uhuru Kenyatta being all inclusive and going out of his way to meet Luos and campaign in Luo land as a national leader and campaigning for TNA’s  candidate and you guys are convulsing and shaking in your boots because Uhuru dared suggest he will win the elections.” Speaking for myself, I am happy Uhuru is campaigning in Luoland and was given the warm welcome as he or any other candidate other than jokers seeking publicity should. I am certainly not convulsing or shaking because Uhuru suggested he could win. My view is, anyone who is qualified to vie for the presidency and thinks he or she has what it takes should do so and may the best candidate win. I just don’t see how UK wins and neither do most Kenyans, including yourself.

You say, “By the way I commend those Luo guys for their conduct during UK’s visit, they displayed maturity and I am very proud of them even if they may not vote for him in the end.” I am with you there ditto for you saying, “I have always known Luos are a great people” but I am not with you when you say, “except for the likes of Dr. Abonyo and Mau Rice Jasmine Oduor and Jalkani who give them a bad rap.” Just because you don’t like or disagree with these three does not mean it’s a bad rap for Luos anymore than is it a bad rap for Kisiis for them not to like or disagree with you. This projection of individual traits or deeds to a whole community is at the core of tribalism we must learn to avoid such. BTW, it’s Maurice Oduor; let’s at least be respectful in how we refer to people. I no longer call Wamalwa Eunice so kindly do the same thing.

BTW, as an aside and talking about Wamalwa, I was at an event not too long ago (Prezzo’s party at the Carnivore) and as I was walking to join my friends, I saw him seating there with them so rather than risking calling him Eunice or him landing one on my cheeks for having referred to him as such, I and my crew took seats in a different nearby area. One of my friends, however, insisted I must join them so I reluctantly did.

You say, “Hiyo upumbavu ya ODM where ya’ll believe you are entitled to things and the presidency or else there will be war muwache kabisa, ni upuzi.” Nobody in ODM that matters believes that we are entitled to anything other than what all Kenyans are entitled to and we certainly don’t believe that we are entitled to the presidency and most definitely do not believe there will be war unless our candidate is elected; there will not be such a war or even any hostility when the person elected is elected in an open and transparent elections. What we are saying is let no fool think they can grab power as was done in 2007.

That’s not upumbavu or upuzi but a stern warning and fact.

Upumbavu and upuzi is when you say, “The last I checked Raila Odinga had managed to relegate a once national party to a Luo Nyanza outfit.” Thanks to the superb leadership of Raila, ODM is the only party with nationwide appeal and certainly the only party with the most MPs in Parliament from all parts of the country and don’t even bring in the nonsense that Ruto and Co left; they are all officially ODM and actually will soon likely declare their complete reversal of course and rejoin and fight with Raila to defeat those who would rather eviscerate the constitution.

You say, “Luos are number Four in population in Kenya, so how does he then become president on what account when everybody else is running away from him?” This is reasoning along ukabila line and, as I am sure you know, yours truly does not believe in ukabila. As I have repeatedly said, Raila has a 47 County Campaign Strategy (47CCS) he is pursuing and will successfully do so and be reelected but sworn this time as our fourth president.

As for “everybody else running away from him” you obviously know that’s a false statement there is no need to say anything more than just stating the obvious that the departure of a few members for purely selfish and opportunistic reasons is no reflection of neither the party nor Raila.

That being said, you can begin to count from next month how many of those who left or have been seating on the fence will now firmly declare Raila tosha.

You say, “Through intimidation and violence? Let me guess, “Destroyer 5 and his catapult? Not even the violent outbursts you guys are so famous for will get him to State House, sahahu milele..you watch.” Others may be foolish, reckless and naive all combined to think they can get to State House by any means including force, Raila and ODM only know and are pursuing a campaign strategy for Raila to be peacefully reelected but this time sworn as our fourth president.

You say, “Uhuru Kenyatta has ten times the chances of becoming Kenya’s next president than your captain Bandia~ please believe it…” Uhuru himself will tell you without any hesitation that you’re in lala land on this and don’t even believe this yourself.

You say, “and you  know what, Uhuru Kenyatta just will be the next President of Kenya~ watch. Then what, mng’oe reli ama mchome Kisumu?” If Uhuru or anyone else other than Raila is elected in an open and transparent election, we will accept defeat and some of us have already committed to doing whatever we can to help him or her govern.

You say, “Wacha upuzi nyinyi, eti prepare for another round of 2007?” What all peace loving Kenyans are saying is let nobody be fooled to think they can grab power again in the country. We just won’t let them. That’s not upuzi but a fact.

You say, “Kwani nyinyi peke yenu ndio wanaume mnatisha waKenya hapa?” Stating that Kenyans will not again tolerate violence or flagrant stealing of elections has nothing to do with manliness for men and women will join hands in rejecting such a move and by all means as we should for the sake of the country we love and cannot allow to return to the dark days of PEV.

You say, “Wacha unyokonyoko yenu, jaribu and see what happens..upumbavu mtupu!

This kind of language is wholly inappropriate and is not acceptable in an intellectual or at least mature discussion of issues.

I know you can do better.
