As the political grand coalition settles down to work, it is interesting to reflect on the principal causalities of the monster. Two people immediately spring to mind. The PNU iron lady of Kenyan politics is suffering a cute bout of PGCSD- post grand coalition stress disorder. Meanwhile Dr. Frank Njenga is currently heading the team attending to Ms Martha.
Martha is a victim of her own efforts and 'success'. Her loyalty and oily mouth to defend PNU during the first 100 days of 2008 were unquestionable. She exhausted her intellectual reservoir as the public face of fraudulent MV PNU. Where wits and calculative blackmail failed, her crude tantrums came in handy. That she got an unrestrained political kick in the teeth is painful to say the least.
The maverick ex-magistrate must be remonstrating and cursing under her breath what generous kicks for a donkey politicians get as rewards for all their efforts. Martha's LOUD silence in the last one week speaks volumes. Next time she twists her lips on the screen, they will either spew characteristic brimstone or churn out measured retrospection mellowed by political reality. She is one person whose actions will definitely give a clue on the directions of political dynamics in tandem with Kibaki succession.
Mad Martha, livid Lucy
That Kenyans have not missed Lucy during her sojourn at Nairobi’s mental facility is no coincidence. Lucy’s absence from the public eye has saved many male cheeks from stopping her flying palms. But at least she can sit pretty in the knowledge that her wish to have State House as home is partially adhered to. She made sure that all coalition transactions were conducted at Harambee House far away from her madness. You can only guess what the outcome and state of Kenya would be otherwise.
Lucy may be down but not out. Having personally made sure that the kihii does not bring himself anywhere near State House, she cannot sit pretty as the same person strides the political landscape unperturbed. Lucy will never forgive Koffi Annan for spoiling the party in which she staked her all - stature and persona. You don’t commiserate with the devil in an ELECTION THEFT only to see it melt right before your eyes. Well, one thing is for sure: we haven’t seen the last of these two TOUGHIES who dare not spare any man left standing in Kenya.
