The national anxiety following failure to name a cabinet in the last week continues to produce interesting speculations. While ODM thought that it was pedalling MV moral in demanding LEAN cabinet, ingenious PNU is wondering why truncate C. PNU have thrown spanner into the works by counter-demanding a CLEAN cabinet.
No price for guessing whom PNU has their political guns blazing at. Trust Kenyan politicians to win with all letter permutations in service of expediency. They are simply playing clever deluding themselves that we ordinary mortals cannot see through their cheap schemes.
You cannot have your political cake and eat it. While ODM calculates to stealthily win the moral ground on numbers, PNU knows which card to knock for a guaranteed fall out in the opposite camp. In the process we remain the pawn shouting ourselves hoarse at their antics with the IDPs stopping harsh elements of the weather in their tattered tents. We are truly a man-eat-man society bereft of neither human feelings nor national priority.
Political jokers and forked lips
Ours is a country teaming with calculating politicians who speak with both sides of their mouths to give objective impressions than thinly masks their selfish intentions. If its not tribal balance clothed in politically correct term of face of Kenya, they readily revert to selective affirmative action. The so-called youth are no better. They have learnt fast when to use the tag for expediency too like when Ms Cecily Mbarire and her ilk want to call attention to their relevance in the
political pecking order.
Our shameless leaders take us for a mass of dunderheads. Annan had deal directly with Kibaki and Raila to get results after kicking out political gatekeepers. So who does Mutula Kilonzo thinks he is fooling by suggesting that the same mistrusting mediation team has the capacity to form a cabinet?
Kenya has degenerated into a country led by political jokers. The ensuing theatre of absurd leaves the abrasive and straight-talking COTU boss Francis Atwoli looking like an angel. He has promised to have the so-called two principals agree on a cabinet in less than three hours. His mediation offer will predictably be treated with utter contempt.
Kenya's key leaders are permanently held hostage by sectarian interests. These evil forces continuously pull in different direction and none of them is meant to benefit the country or its people. A nation whose leaders perennially fail to agree on anything is a geographical entity precariously held by threads of mistrust that will definitely snap at the slightest opportunity. It is simply a matter of when and not if.
