Kenyan politics never runs short of twists and turns for the worse. Our politicians are at their best in spinning cheap political yarns that fail to cover their ethnocentric loyalties. The peace deal whose cause was brought upon us by a select few Kenyans claiming exclusive ownership to our country’s title deed has been reduced for what it was and intended to be, a piece of paper willing to kiss the embers of political fire.
Now the jostling and political semantics of clean, lean and real cabinet has taken the political stalemate to new heights with devastating casualties. First the so-called National Dialogue and Reconciliation Committee has her oxygen mask deflated. The political talk show is gasping for breath in fear to attacking the next agenda while the one preceding one is yet to unveiled.
The peace deal may have temporarily made Kenyans overlook the existence of an ILLEGITIMATE government formed after collectively raping our national rights. But the evil premise of DECEPTION and calculative politics continue unabated at our national peril. The vacuum cleverly created will cost us enormously when Kenyans come to know how deep the crowned thieves dipped their hands into our national till. Anglo Leasing and Goldenberg will be relegated to the footnotes of politically-engineered scams.
Making peace with war cries
Only in Kenya do you make peace using war cries clothed in propaganda. The clever Kenyan politician will shamelessly broadcast falsehoods against his opponent with the singular aim of politically extinguishing him. And the plot works best when tribesmen are roped in to serially repeat the lies till they start believing it themselves. PNU seem to have mastered this game too well. Their idea is to nip a potentially powerful opponent in the bud.
The circumcision kite failed to fly and Kenyans saw alarmist leaflets for what they really were. The fact that the genocide mud refused to stick is no good enough reason to stop pushing it further via innuendos. The problem is these people still take Kenyans to be the average villager they beat in local school on their way to Mangu and later to Makerere. As a consequence of their short term selfish interest, Kenya is now mentioned synonymously to Zimbabwe.
It is shameless engagement in reverse logic to sanitize Kibaki’s election theft with the counter that ODM rigged too. That only amounts to retrospective guilt. And the mudslinging competition takes a higher gear with Ruto checkmating Michuki. We are simply adding fuel to the fires lit by the scoundrels for politicians. We are permanently held hostage by the ruling class.
The heightened political temperatures only go a step further to prove that since last elections Kenya will never be the same again. Never unless you don’t mind what happens to your backside as you dig your head deep into the sand. We can blame our past for all we fancy but truth remains that the present hell visited the Kenyan shores on EXCLUSIVE invitation of one Kibaki, period.
