DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF LUO NYANZA?

Before you crawl to this wall to tell me how I hate Luos or how secession is not a Luo thing, know this…

1.Abagusi and Kuria voted to support the Kikuyu/Kalenjin

2. Kambas donated MPs to the Kikuyu/Kalenjin regime

3. Three Coastal Counties trust the Kikuyu/Kalenjin regime enough to give them 3 governors

4. Luhyas believe in the Kikuyu/Kalenjin oppressors enough to give them more than 10 legislators.

5. Maasai have sided with the Kikuyu/Kalenjin oppressers

Luo Nyanza is the only place where the Kikuyu/Kalenjin Oppression is loathed…for the obvious reason that we have a presidential candidate we’ve been forcing down others’ throat since several years before my second wife was born.

It’s why anti- IEBC Demos degenerated into “Ouru Mas go”. Why the recent unrests was “Luolised”. We are alone.

But..

Let’s, for argument’s sake, entertain the sick idea that we need a Democratic Republic of Luo Nyanza so that someone can realize his presidential dream…

Let’s say, we hold our first democratic elections in the new republic and Dr. Kidero emerges the winner. What next?

Let’s say the insatiable thirst for power leads to the formation of People’s Republic of Siaya. And after an election, Tuju emerges the winner. What next?

Will he form a Kingdom?

My point? People have the right to self-determination, but you can’t subdivide a country that’s been independent for 50+ years, not suppressed fundamental freedoms and never seen armed civil war or government sponsored genocide…just because you want to be president.

That, in my humble view, is taking political despair to levels unknown.

And isn’t it ironically embarrassing that Luos are being fed the “form your own country and escape Kikuyu/Kalenjin oppression ” crap by a Kikuyu?

Fellow Luos, we’ve embarrassed ourselves enough in the name of politics. Let’s find another obsession…I propose “wealth creation” as our obsession moving forward.

What do you think?

WHAT’S RAILA’S END GAME?

Samson Ogola

A friend asked what happens next, immediately after the dismissal of Raila’s petition. Will we be treated to…

1. A strongly-worded presser; accusing the judiciary of bias but one that grudgingly wishes Uhuruto good luck? Or

2. A bitter press conference rejecting the ruling and calling Luos to the streets, to demand justice?

Well, I think and hope the Supreme Court is Raila’s dignified exit strategy. Losing the case, after presenting a lorry of evidence, will pit his supporters against the judiciary. This will move Uhuruto from computer generated leaders to Supreme Court appointees. Raila will remain a heroic victim, the savor the corrupt system rejected. The greatest statesman to walk our land. That would be the worst case scenario.

But as Mozzie (Neal’s con friend in the White Collar Series) said, there is always a worst case scenario behind every worst case scenario. In other words, what if there is no exit strategy and going to court was just an excuse to send innocent Luo youths to the streets thereafter?

What should we expect…how will that work? Here is how..

1. Sending supporters to the streets, after failing to prove a case at the court, will mean Rao has gone suicidal politically speaking. He’d have given up on legacy and ready to die and sacrifice as many of his supporters as he can to get power…. But will he get enough suicidal supporters to cheer him?

2. Yes, as long as there are disillusioned young Luos in Kibera, Mathare and Kondele…Rao will always get his street demos. But what will he get from unpopularly violent demos, you ask? Well…

3. Religious leaders and the civil society will put pressure on Uhuruto to dialogue Rao and incorporate him in government to end the ‘violence and loss of lives’. Should Uhuruto give in to such calls….

4. Rao and Co will have gotten themselves a nusu mkate government…something they’ve been dreaming of since 2013…but what if Uhuruto ignore him and crash the violent protesters instead? Rao might put himself on arms way….go down as a political martyr… Something that…

5. Would leave the Luo nation not only bitter but too suicidal to describe.

NOTE: Things are likely to take the first route but, just in case they don’t, above is my worst case scenario.

Why are ODM governors assuming offices?

If there was no elections and what we had was a sham, as Rao insists. If the rigging affected all posts from MCA to President, as Baba claimed not so long ago…

Then, why in God’s green earth, are ODM governors assuming office? Why not, in solidarity with their Supremo, reject the computer generated victory and wait for fresh elections?

You now see why I insist it takes more than grace to be an ODMlet?

You are expected to believe the election was rigged right from the MCA to president but at the same time attend swearing ceremonies of the “rigged-in leaders.

No you are expected to believe the rigging only affected the presidency but at the same time dismiss Jubilee’s tyranny of numbers…as computer generated…

Lawd!

Religious nation

Christianity, if you didn’t know, can be summarized in one sentence

“Please always strive to love God and your neighbor”

Now, more than 80% of Kenyans subscribe to Christianity. Which brings me to the questions

1. How can a Christian nation be the home of negative ethnicity (aka hatred for neighbors)

2. Has the clergy failed to teach the fundamental truth (love tolerance, and peaceful coexistence) in their pursuit of prosperity gospel? or

3. Are we a bunch of shameless hypocrites, who value political pronouncements above Biblical teachings?

I mean, where is the source of negative ethnicity in a supposedly godly country like ours?

Your thought(s) please….

What’s next?

I’ve seen people speculating about the next Luo Political Kingpin, now that Raila is leaving the stage. I think they are going about it wrong. In my opinion, Luos don’t need a new political kingpin…someone to take our obsession with the presidency to the insane levels. No, we are in desperate need of economic emancipation. In that regard we need

1. An economic revolutionist, someone who will inspire us to exploit our unexploited resources.

2. Someone who can depoliticize our lifestyle, help us realize that there is more to life than dominating national politics.

3. Someone who can bargain for us not with us…an acceptable figure who can reach out to investors.

We don’t need political unity, ours has been useless at best and at worst created monstrous personality cults. We need economic unity.

Which brings us to the big question; who can take the Luo nation to that direction? Any suggestions?
