So it had to take both US and UK to impress upon Kibaki and Raila to retreat one-to-one to agree on forming a cabinet? Well, these are the same powers bloggers here and politicians selective accuse of neo-colonialism too. We have the initiative of one Michael Rannenberger (late 'saviour' Smith Hempstone reincarnated?) to thank if Kibaki allows the present deal to hold.
The icing on the rumour cake is the clincher that the agreed cabinet will be as lean as 20. Well, the time-tested adage and truism WHEN THE DEAL IS TOO GOOD already comes ringing a loud. Whatever the shape of that cabinet one thing remains irrefutable. Given the amount of mistrust displayed so far would, one would be incurably optimistic and overtly generous to bet a tissue paper on a cordial and mutual working relationship between the two parties.
Well, the day is almost over and tomorrow is soon here knocking. The battered benefit of doubt is often squeezed in desperate time and Kenyans need it in abundance for the next few hours. No matter the outcome, Kenyans are in for a very ROUGH political ride. The premise is so weak to serve as a foundation of any meaningful and substantial progress. But then half a loaf is always better than none provided it is not poisonous.
The hitherto political pong Kenyan has thoroughly neutered our sense of pride jubilation. News that Kibaki and Raila have at long last agreed to constitute the overdue cabinet has left Kenyan in their traditional wait-and-see posture. The last 40 days has seen any trace of hope of Kenyans butchered at infancy. Only Kibaki’s rare commitment will determine whether today’s so-called deal will stand the test of the day (no need of more time).
