At this time of the year, we all talk to our folks.
My Dad’s presidential vote looks like it is headed in Kibaki’s direction who he sees as the lesser evil of the 3 main candidates. The fascinating thing is that my step mother’s vote was headed in the same direction until the hot slap of the 12th of the December by Lucy Kibaki.
She says; “I hate to think what I would have done and felt if it was my husband being slapped. And to make matters worse in this case, his wife and children were present. And the man is a Mkamba like us. There is no way Kibaki is seeing my vote now.”
My Dad doesn’t think the slap is a big issue.
Mrs Kumekucha is voting Raila and has ignored all pleas from her brothers and sisters in the house of Mumbi who are rabidly Kibaki and very much anti-Mujaruo. Let me remind you that it was Mrs Kumekucha who said months back that it would take a major miracle and divine intervention for Raila Odinga to be elected president.
But I am happy to report that the various different political views in the family do NOT affect the way we relate. We respect each other’s views.
If I make it back home to vote, I will share with all of you exactly how I vote and why.
