Today, I am taking the liberty to publish PNU insider information that shows that PNU were not only the culprits in printing leaflets depicting Raila 'hanging' former President Moi with a sheepishly smiling Ruto watching, but PNU are blatantly committing many election malpractices.
It is shocking to see how far a government that purports to be democratic can go in order to win elections are are rigged in advance. Voter bribery, misusing provincial administration and frightening propaganda! The entire unedited dossier is re-published herebelow.
To add insult to injury, two APs who were caught red-handed distributing the foul literaure and were positively identified by the press in the presence of senior police officers have since been released without charge. The two officers were instead 're-deployed' to AP training school in Embakasi even after having confessed to have been acting on orders from Office of the President.
Where is Brigadier Ali to tell us no sacred cows will be spared? Or Derek to lament kazi iendelee?
Rift Valley ZoneIntroduction
Field visits and information available indicate in all the 49 constituencies in Rift Valley, the backlash/fall-out is in our favour. We should therefore seize the Opportunity to campaign at grassroots level for our candidate and to sell and Market the PNU. After the nomination, there are so many guest speakers including those who have crossed-over as the ODM euphoria wanes.
We are proposing a 3 (Three)-Pronged Strategy:-
(a) Two to three Meetings in a week at Divisional level.
(b) A Mini-Rally every week or two weeks.
(c) Constituency Rallies.
These should target the Youth, Women and Organized Groups in all the divisions in a constituency with clear message and commitment to campaign for our candidate.
2. Traditional / choir songs
These to be loaded with our candidates’ Achievements and Can-do Messages.
Drilled in various Achievement Messages and local propaganda emphasize Raila is a devil worshiper out to punish Moi and other Kalenjin leaders
• To support PNU and our candidate
• Commitment of each person to go and recruit 5-10 others to re-elect our candidate.
• Use the leaflets more specifically to diminish Railas image within the Kalenjin land.
Other propaganda materials to be finalized by second week of December
1. Details of Raila’s participation in the 1982 coup emphasize on how he killed kalenjins and kikuyus
2. Design another MOU between him and Ruto and emphasize on how he will not honour it by his previous record
3. Booklet of how Kikuyu will help Kalenjin owned companies and how Raila tried to snatch kalenjin wealth while he was minister of energy
Mini- Weekly Rallies
These should include two to three Divisions in the constituency held at Local strategic centres. The pattern of the program should be as above. Local Key nominated speakers should be encouraged to market our candidate and themselves in these Rallies. The Raila leaflets should be spread well in advance with supervision of provincial administration
These should include mobilization from all the divisions within the constituency and held at strategic central places within the constituency or any historical centre within the constituency.
The program pattern should be as above but the thrust of the rallies are to support our candidate while demonizing our greatest challenger. The propaganda must be intensified and Moi has promised to finance more materials to be distributed within a span of two weeks. Local Key speakers and invited outside speakers should grace these rallies.
The 3 (Three)-Pronged Strategy can be initiated by our constituency coordinators together with their local Strategy Committees and assistance from the Secretariat.
1. Hire of halls and site venues if these were not free as well as decorating /banners.
2. Hire of Tents and a few chairs.
3. Hospitality such as water.
4. Publicity /Announcements.
5. Police Notice of the function.
6. Subsidized transport in some instances particularly if the Guest Speakers are from far.
7. Branding of traditional singers and choirs
8. Any other necessities to make the Meetings /Mini-Rallies a success.
Assistance From The Secretariat
Propaganda leaflets (to be financed separately)
Modest facilitation on weekly basis against well planned programs of the week.
3. National Rallies
Advanced notice of any national Rallies within 3- 4 days away in any major Regions.
ODM euphoria is waning in Rift Valley zone. We should seize the opportunity to adopt the above proposals and any other consistent with our overall objective to win re-election for our candidate. Reactivate the propaganda about Raila and ensure it penetrates to the local level. The second bunch of leaflets depicting Raila hanging Moi and Ruto must be dropped at night and not daytime as previously done.
The availability of Materials and modest facilitation, management and coordination are Key to these proposals’ success.
I attach herewith the estimates Materials and facilitations for the Rift Valley Zone.
Other Local Issues
KANU has persistently branded themselves KANU whenever they have Meetings to the exclusion of other PNU parties.
In Some parts of Rift Valley Province, where ODM euphoria had gained ground the bulk of ODM followers were infact KANU supporters. The danger in this is that these followers may continue to support ODM at the expense of PNU presidential votes.
One solution to this problem is to brand PNU all the traditional singers and choirs whenever KANU hold its Meetings. This implies that we must hold limited materials stock such as T-shirts and Caps plus posters with out constituency coordinators to enable them take the initiative to brand all Meetings and Mini-Rallies in their respective constituencies
Constituency coordinators / Provincial Administrations mobilization
There have been instances where mobilization has been done by Provincial Administration to the exclusion of our constituency coordinators or indeed involvement of non-locals particularly in Greater Kericho Districts, Greater Baringo Districts and Usain Gishu.
This is beginning to cause murmurs and resistance amongst the Chiefs’ extended families who mobilize themselves expecting hand-outs and the rest of the community. This is unnecessary and uncalled for. We are proposing that all mobilizations be harmonized between the C.C.S. and Provincial Administration and the local be involved so as to make them own the decision making process regarding theses Meetings / Rallies.
