All indications are that the ECK is about to announce President Kibaki the winner of the 2007 General elections. Somebody has given me a figure of 40,000. That is the margin Kibaki will allegedly win the presidency with.
Security is being beefed up all over the country and it seems to me that this is in readiness for this announcement.
It is believed that the President is strongly considering announcing Kalonzo Musyoka as his vice president and will form a colaition with ODM-K. Interestingly the ODM-K leader had a press conference earlier today where he appealed for calm and urged Kenyans to accept the election results. He is currently at the KICC ECK nerve centre with others waiting for Kivutu's verdict. Incidentally the Pentagon (ODM) is reported to have left KICC for an unknown destination.
Meanwhile PNU leaders have just held a press conference where Amos Kimunya, Musikari "lost his parliamentary seat" Kombo, and Kivutha "lost his parliamentary seat" Kibwana have accused their opponents of trying to intimidate the ECK and "doing everything possible to prevent them from announcing the results." The PNU leaders have appealed to Kenyans to accept the results.
The writing is clearly on the wall. All this is to prepare Kenyans for the announcement of a Kibaki win. A man who has lost so badly in at least 5 provinces is now set to rule Kenya. Interestingly the opposition in Moi days could not win because of the vast voter rich Rift Valley. Now the ECK may want us to believe later today that the Kikuyu vote with a little help from Meru and Embu can win the presidency.
I have travelled in many parts of the country and I can tell you that Kenyans do not need to be incited to say "NO" to a Kibaki win this time round. That is the truth. Let those who have stood with the president in his Kamikaze and suicidal decision be prepared to take responsibility for their actions and the consequences that are sure to follow.
God help Kenya, God have mercy on Kenya.
