Mutahi Ngunyi said it first and I joined in and repeated it several times; there was no way that Mwai “stole the 2007 presidential elections” Kibaki was going to hand over power peacefully if he lost an election.
Most Kenyans believed that was just porojo. After all the grandfather-image Mwai Kibaki was a harmless old man who hated political confrontation. As you read this many Kenyans are still looking for the evil culprit within the Kibaki administration who has caused the mess that the country is in at the moment. They have refused to believe that there is no man in the Kibaki regime who is more evil than Mwai Kibaki himself.
Yet the signs have been there for a long time. The harmless grand father seated inside State House was asked by a BBC journalist 3 days ago whether he would hand over power peacefully if he lost the elections. His reply was in Swahili and so rude that many Kenyans reading this will still not believe that it is Mwai Kibaki. He said: Wacha Kuniuliza swali ya Upumbavu. (Stop asking me a stupid question.)
Tracing back Mr Kibaki’s actions leading up to the events of yesterday it is clear to see his thinking. He made a big issue out of appointing as many new Electoral Commissioners as possible. Just hours to the general elections he appointed new judges.
The plan was simple. To rig the elections after which he expected ODM to seek redress in the courts where he would be ready for them and besides petitions can be made to last 5 years or more by which time he would have completed his fraudulent second term.
Kibaki also assumed that Kenyans would meekly accept the event of yesterday. But above all else the vote thief was most confident with support from the Americans, nothing will shake his government. You see he has pleased Uncle Sam a lot with his stand on terrorism and terrorism suspects. And everybody knows that the Americans will give you anything as long as you support their war on terrorism to the hilt.
Big time miscalculations. Kenya has changed and the State House should have seen that clearly from the way Kenyans countrywide voted. The thinking within State House is that ODM is a Luo political party with pockets of support from Kalenjins.
Secondly ODM have said that they are NOT going to court. Nobody knows what they will do instead. But already we hear that a parallel government ahs been formed. And to make matters worse the swearing in of that government is taking place at Uhuru Park at 2 pm. GSU have sealed off Uhuru Park and declared the meeting illegal so we wait to see what happens.
Now the entire country has degenerated into violence and many innocent hard working Kikuyus have lost property and some their lives. FOR WHAT???!!!! So that somebody can stay in State House for another 5 years fraudulently?
I have been able to establish that many people who voted for Kibaki are now deeply regretting their action. Apparently they thought they knew the person they were voting for but have found out when it is too late that they made a big mistake that has cost some of them their lives.
