Thanks Cardinal Njue For Saving Kivuitu
Thank God for giving us Cardinal-designate Njue (a prince of the church) whose voice and appeal made President Kibaki listen in reappointing Samuel Mutua Kivuitu as the ECK chair. As they say a nation that doesn't listen to the Almighty is lost. At long last the Emilio heard a voice he couldn't ignore lest....
And the characteristic big Sam did not disappoint in accepting his reappointment in his own style. Speak of pride and latent knowledge that the appointing authority was coaxed into doing what was right against his will.
Kivuitu made it clear before that he won't beg for the job neither will he accept anything less than the law's prescription. Now that he has it in the bag, CHEEKY Kivuitu has made clear he won't last the 5 years with a warning that his seat is no bed of roses. In fact he mouthed the thinly-veiled threat of meeting your maker faster before you enjoy the goodies.
Give it to Kivuitu. We owe him alot as a nation and his clear message is that he is no push over. His position is so sensitive and he has served distinguishably. The lacklustre performance of his predecessor makes him look a saint. And the battle begins in earnest. May the best candidate win and God save Kenya.
