Reddykulas celebrity John Kiarie aka KJ has joined ODM with eyes trained on dethroning Beth Mugo in Dagoreti. After being a major player in the countrywide Vijana Tugutuke campaign, he has finally decided to soil his hands and be part of the act.
KJ's entry into politics may just usher in fresh touch to our politics. Whether he is only fulfilling the adage of mtoto wa nyoka ni nyoka by taking after his father Ngethe who was an also-run presidential candidate in 2002 or he is the epitome of a smart mass mood reader who knows when to translate comedy fame to REALPOLITIK only time will tell. All the same his plunge into politics is the REAL head on collision he has only been caricaturing in the Buzz magazine of Sunday Nation.
We can only wish him well together with other youth like Mdomo Baggy (Kamkunji) and Kajairo (Embakassi). They are our face whom we owe support to champion our course hijacked by scoundrels.
Kibaki's lawyer reappointed commissioner
Meanwhile Kibaki has defied all pleas and sent home 5 ECK commissioners. Even Habel Nyamu could not keep his job after penning flatery articles in praise of the present regime. Kibaki has retained his lawyer Kihara Muttu who was elected last week as the ECK chair.
And there starts the stench from the dead rat. With Kivuitu's term coming to an end on December 2, he is staring fire in the face and Muttu may be ace up Kibaki's sleeve to do the necessary as ECK boss. We are living in interesting time and only God can save Kenya.
