Does Kumekucha Hurt The Election Thieves Where It Counts?
Kumekucha Reader's comment of the Month;

Chris, the only reason why people would want to sabotage this blog would be because they are feeling threatened or insecure. These are not people of lesser means. For them to go to the lengths that they are tells me that it is now hurting where it counts. I agree - State House may now be realizing what they have unleashed. I'm sure the incumbents just want people to go back to their lives - which they will. Food has to be put on the table. Children have to go back to school. But I don't believe that Kenyans who feel robbed are going to let it pass this time.
The general feeling amongst those who handle Mwai Kibaki's image is that blogs like Kumekucha have contributed to their resounding defeat on the International stage. Hence the sensitivity about Kumekucha and the attacks (which now involve clogging up the comments system with gibberish).
While this is very flattering (I had no idea we can be that powerful) it is NOT TRUE. The Kibaki gang shot itself in the foot when they banned live media broadcasts. That single decision guranteed their defeat no matter what. Secondly the truth tends to come out in the end no matter how much "spinning" is done. The truth as the world knows now is that Mwai Kibaki rigged himself back to power. Period.
Congratulations the commentator using the apt name Kenya nchi yetu, your comment hits the nail on the head. (Or shall I say "hits the hissing snake that rattles on the head.")
