The saga continues....

After reading this post at Kumekucha and the comments that followed, it shows me if we don't get an Obama Kenya as a nation we are headed for extinction.Even King Solomon might have to cut the baby into half proverbially so.

 

What's this there is more HIV in Nyanza vs more HIV in Central discussion? Why should it even arise?

 

Why does any discussion on Raila lead to portrayal of Kikuyus as monsters. What does a discussion of Kibaki have to do with Raila and vice versa, the two are not the same person and each has their own fatal flaws (think Art of War) and merits.

 

I know each is aware of the disastrous election campaigns they carried out.The effects of divisions are not going to wear out just because somebody said so.


That notwithstanding I thought 4 months later and after intense bleeding I am shocked we are still having a your province is better than ours or our people are more hardworking than yours arguments. When will Kenyans ever grow up? I mean if you can't learn from your own experiences then how can you learn?

 

When I listened to Orengo waxing lyrical that Kikuyus who have been displaced from the Rift Valley should be resettled, elsewhere  I could not believe he is first and foremost a human rights lawyer and a nationalist as he had appeared to severally be. How politicians change. There has been an excellent piece on Kenya Imagine on the issue of Ancestral land and someone has asked very correctly "since the Maasai people are nomadic pastoralists, does that mean every piece of parcel they have passed through makes it their ancestral land?". What I know is that anyone claiming others must move from their rightful or otherwise acquired land, is a terrible daydreamer. Ask those who own land in the middle of Nairobi City. Maybe Kenyatta was wrong in allocating land to his cronies/tribesmen, maybe he was not; I am not willing to pursue where is it again,..where my great great great grandfather came from maybe he was even a Maasai grazing his cows and then...., I don't know. see how drafty the story of ancestors can be.

 

Ababu Namwamba swallows Bitter Pill

 

Politics is an interesting game, a few months just when the Honorable Ababu Namwamba pulled theatrics on the swearing day of parliament he has to taste his own medicine. The man he swore to will hear nothing of opposition and publicly so. The people of Kisumu have been told that Government is where they belong and rightly so after the attempt to get into statehouse were thwarted by what some will argue (ODMers) grand theft of elections.

 

I have nothing but respect for Mr. Ababu the young man from Budalangi who ousted the useless Raphael Wanjala but that is as far as it goes. Your tongue the bible says is very dangerous and destructive.

 

Raila and Kibaki belong to the same class; the elite political class. I mean just six months after I was born, Raila pulled one on Moi, that was 26 years ago .Kibaki was then a VC for president Moi . 20 years later, he is the man that Raila declared "Tosha" and who Raila is calling your Excellency now. Gosh Ababu can't you see? Politics is a silly game! You disrespected Kibaki in full glare of the Cameras because you thought they are grand enemies. Now Raila marked you, knows you can't respect an old man (at least) and will clip you before you can develop your wings!  First learn the game, before you can even act or talk.Don't get too excited. Watch this space.
