6 TIMES BEATING

Contrary to popular perception, today is Raila’s sixth stab at the Presidency.
First was in 1982, when he organized a dumb Coup attempt. In this first attempt, 389 Kenyans lost their lives, 407 are still unaccounted for. Property worth billions was destroyed and the Kenyan Economy faced a recession from 1983 to 1984 when we saw yellow maize for the first time.
Second was in 1997, when he was walloped badly in the polls. However, after the polls, instead of joining the opposition in order to monitor KANU’s final five years- Raila joined KANU in the massive looting in KANU’s final years. During his Cooperation with KANU, massive amounts of public funds were lost. It is during this period, mega corrupt deals in the energy sector were mooted under Raila, who was the energy minister. This is the period he became a billionaire.
Third was in 2002. He had signed an MoU with Kibaki to be handed over power through the backdoor as powerful Executive Prime Minister. Kibaki did not hand over power- as a result he started a very long drawn campaign against Kibaki. This caused major economic issues.
Fourth was the 2007. This time he started a full throttle hate campaign against the Kikuyu community. He managed to convince his followers to see the Kikuyu as the cause of all their problems. We all know the outcome of the hate campaign.
Fifth was in 2013. As PM, he had the power of incumbency. But he run the most incompetent campaign in history. He lost badly to Uhuru. He started a hate campaign against Jubilee, the impact can be seen in an army of hate filled followers even on Social Media.
Today, is his Sixth stab.

GIVE US PEACE

It all started at the Hague. Condemned and watched by millions, the man spoke to defend his life. He was not guilty. Glued to the Tvs whatever the make, large or small , flat bellied or an artefact like the one I grew up watching, the son of Jomo stood like a phoenix rising from the smelly ashes of conspiracy and fault fixing. He had bagged it. Suddenly, he dropped his fathers legacy. A leader was born. The world watched in dismay, shock and sense of pride as a fairly young leader proved to the world that he was the true son of the magnanimous Jomo Kenyatta. He put Kenya on the world map. Even the Queens counsel nodded in appreciation. His clients path on the global stage was cut.
Up and up he soared. He was president elect. Zero violence despite the unguarded attempt by his detractors to malign him. He held Kenya peacefully as the supreme court declared him democratically elected. The world was now alert. A new African order was inevitable. The naysayers of ‘consequences have choices’crawled back to nothingness. The losers court.
He pitched on like a season King. After all, he knew the corners of state house all too well. You simply don’t play with a child who played hide and seek behind a flagged Mercedes Benz. He has no hunger to kill for power. He has no thirst to hurt anyone. It’s not his thing. He leads from the seasoned hand of a previous coach.
Uhuru Kenyatta has consistently staged his worth to the world powers at ease. He brought Obama here dining with him on Kenyan soil. He brought the Pope. Our prayers were interceded locally. Netanyahu and his lovely traffic holding dog graced the land. We don’t need to put small letters in a wall in Jerusalem. The Japanese chose this destination for their events. This is not the Kenya we knew. This is a new way. We matter. The son of Jomo deserves another 5 years. Ask me why?
This week in Italy the high flying president is soaring. He does it for Kenya. Like Kemboi does that dance after his steeplechase race, the son of Jomo is doing it for us. At the G7 he spoke for Africa. He who was thrown under the bus by Raila so that he could craftily pick power. I stand with him once again. I am proud of you my president.
Raila, this is me being objective. Where is your manifesto? What is your economic plan? How well defined is your youth agenda or is it all painted in unga? What is your women empowerment plan? How many education plans have you run for disadvantaged girls in Kibera? Give me the numbers for Bondo too while you are at it.
Raila, this country is headed for economic development. This country is on the global map. This country is youthful and progressive. Like a nubile girl who cannot be defiled by an angry old man who has no plan to elevate her. This country needs a politically mature, well educated and strategic leader who can sell it’s economic dreams to global decision makers. I doubt your accent, unga addiction and clenched teeth as you speak can deliver us. I retire you gracefully. Time is up. Let Uhuru be our ambassador. You know it too well. He’s the younger lion. He is nailing it. Even the seasoned bull knows when the son is the new hero in town. Give us peace.
