Aborted ODM Uhuru Park Rally: Can Violence Still Erupt?
Kenyans need to be especially alert this Saturday. I have just received word that the planned ODM rally has been put off—this time by the ODM high command as well (I hope word gets to all ODM supporters on time).
So far ODM rallies have been peaceful but the circumstances have dramatically changed now. Apart from the political temperatures rising considerably in recent days, one cannot rule out the other side triggering violence so as to win propaganda points against ODM who appear to be on a roll.
The really fascinating thing about all these developments is how history seems to repeat itself. It seems like only yesterday when Moi and his Kanu government were giving the opposition a hard time whenever they wanted to hold meetings. Now under Kibaki (although there are those who say that Moi is back in State House when you consider the power he wields)
My apologies, all my posts for today were accidentally deleted and I will have to redo them and probably post them very early tomorrow morning. Poleni sana
