Kibaki Abaki Kamau Born In The Run Up to 2007 Elections
There are those Kenyans who love to name their children after prominent personalities and even events. However I would strongly warn Kenyans against trying to make predictions in the naming of their children.
As I have said the political situation is just too fluid and there are not definites to swear upon.
Although you can be sure there will be no Kibaki Abaki Onyango. You can surely not rule out Kibaki Abaki Njoroge. Or Kibaki Tena Kiogora (from Meru.). Now can you imagine how miserable the situation of those children would be in case the incumbent fails to be re-elected?
I wouldn’t place bets yet on the other side either. What would happen to ODM State House Oduor if something happened and Raila failed to secure the presidency? Or Tsunami Campaign Onyango?
If you think these names are fairy tales then that is a sure sign that you have lost touch with the grassroots in Kenya.
You will find all sorts of names like Bomb Blast Marere who is a constant reminder of the events at the American Embassy in Nairobi in the late 90s.
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
