Reverse logic has an uncanny tendency to look rosy and smell sweet yet underneath lies its potent poison. Take Kenya as a country and the dearth of leadership offered by pretenders to leadership as personified by one DECEPTIVE and INCOMPETENT Mwai Kibaki. Supporters of Kibaki can only succeed in offering his spineless apology by hanging on Raila’s every move. Kibaki’s loyalists live in self denial exemplified by their readiness to catch political cold anytime Raila sneezes.
Juvenile pride of comparing your dad’s hypothetical prowess with others is best and safe inside your skull until it is exposed for what it is. Kenyans have a president whose every move smells nothing but INEPTITUDE and incompetence. But tell that to Kibaki's loud-mouthed choir boys and girls and the only magic wand their hand can wave is comparative logic disguised as cleverly-clothed epithets that iss meant to gloss over the DECEPTIVE ways of their sorry face for a human being.
There are leaders and LEANERS. Our THIEF-IN-CHIEF Kibaki definitely belongs to the later category. Emilio’s supporters unwittingly subscribe to what the Germans call schadenfreude - that evil little pleasure you draw from your competitor’s slip (imagined or real) with the prime objective of covering your personal inadequacies. Theirs is akin to American Republicans rejoicing in the raunchy revelations about Bill Clinton and his favourite intern Monica Lewinsky.
Commanding deranged spouse
Often shallow criticisms of Raila among Kibaki’s loyalists amounts to lesser minds reducing a superior competitor to their level and promptly beating her with the primitive experience. Examples abound of schadenfreude among spectators of sport displayed overtly or covertly. Just ask any Chelsea or Arsenal fun what ails Manchester United and your cup will be left overflowing with litany of fictional inadequacies dressed as pseudo facts. The singular reason being poorly clothed envy –comeuppance, the great medicine for our own ills.
No great leader ever led by proxy nor innuendos. Reactionaries are best known for their gaffes and least for their creativity. Being proactive is an alien doctrine in their arsenal of vices. You cannot claim leadership of a country when your backyard is exclusively commanded by a deranged spouse who cannot be rehabilitated by the best doctors at Mathare mental facility.
Give Raila all the Roman Holidays (English version of Schadenfreude) you wish but the truth remains your idol for THEFT extraordinaire won’t smell any fresher. He may hide his LETHAL INADEQUACIES in such catchy buzzwords as delegation but none of that will sanitize his incompetence.
