ODM emerged from a crisis meeting moments ago with both guns blazing and poured cold water on the shocking Muthaura statement made earlier today saying among other ridiculous things that the Prime Minister would Be third in command in the new government structure (after the president and vice president) to accommodate the Anan peace deal.
Speaking on behalf of ODM, legislator Amukoa Anangwe quite rightly pointed out that the only people who could issue a clarification of the peace deal were the two principals, namely Hon Raila Odinga and President Mwai Kibaki.
He added that it was hardly surprising that the historic peace deal is witnessing some “resistance” from civil servants who will be drastically affected by the Anan brokered peace accord.
Although some readers of this blog had already panicked and viewed this latest development as a clear sign that President Mwai Kibaki is doing his favorite thing of reneging on signed agreements, keen observers believe that what we are seeing are the “kicks of a dying horse” as PNU hardliners fight to derail things and for attention in a situation where the previously easily accessible president is no longer reachable.
Only time will tell where the truth lies.
