Dear Raila A. Odinga


It’s my hope that the father of democracy is doing well. I have this one question for you sir, what do you take us for?

Jakom, are you in any way assuming that every Kenyan believes every political pronouncement you make?

Let me give the basis of my question.

Baba, you went to court and argued that the election conducted on 8th was too compromised to tell the winner. In your own words sir, there was no presidential election on 8th of August 2017…what we had was a sham. In fact, you demanded a repeat poll.

Maraga and Co, using some of the pettiest reasons, nullified the presidential election and ordered for a repeat…just as you wanted. They granted your prayers. The celebration that followed is a story for another day. Bottom line, you were very pleased that a sham election had been nullified and Kenyans had a second chance to elect their leaders.

Ironically, you started disobeying the court order you celebrated. Why? It appears you expected Uhuruto to ignore the ruling and proceed with an illegal swearing in ceremony…making them illegitimate dictators.

Learning that they simply disagreed with the ruling but respected it, you changed tune. You now had extra legal demands..ones that had to be met or else you were to boycott the election…an election we never needed to begin with…an election you begged for at the Supreme Court.

Fast forward, you boycotted the repeat election (in theory) insisting there would be a fresh election in 90 days. But seeing that even the CJ voted…you sent NGOs to court to challenge the reelection of Uhuruto, cases that were dismissed with contempt.

Now that Uhuruto have been legally sworn in, you are here telling us you won the August 8th election and on that basis will be sworn in as the people’s president. Are you for real sir?

I mean, what do you take us for? Are you assuming that all Kenyans are like your supporters who believe everything you say without question?

How did you win an election that didn’t happen? Are you saying that the servers you claimed had been hacked in favor of Uhuruto, the ones IEBC “refused to open” now have details to show you won?

What do you take us for sir? Why are you treating us as if we were some brainless zombies?

You said you couldn’t be sworn in because it’d be illegal and damning only to change tune…dismissing the constitution and everyone who’s opposed to your swearing in.

Jakom, what do you take us for?

Please answer me.
