Smart Kivuitu Beats Them All
Once a politician always one. So people naively think that the ECK boss, Samuel Kivuitu's URGENT letter to all political parties clarifying that they must have three-piece-suit nominees targets PNU and Kibaki. Well, on a sober reflection the converse is true. Smart Kivuitu is killing two pricey political birds with no stone.
First the old guys knows better. He was in Bongo inside real class being trained to think to join the learned family. His announcemnet amounts to practicing the basic tents of law: if possible give the law its simplest interpretation.
The one-time Westalands MP knows what is at stake. With all the politicians scrambling for Emilio's coattails, that single scare from Kivuitu will make all of them abandon their separate schemes which threaten to derail Baba Jimmy's campaign. And what a smart way to earn his contract extension?
Only political neophytes will fail to see through Sam's 'harmless' shot that appear to momentarily excit the opposition while obtusely serve his personal interest.
