The mooted Grand Opposition is staring its demise even before deliver thanks to tried and tested TRIBAL wars. The self acknowledged ambitious Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba is a marked man. The unanimity that claimed Kimunya’s head is no more and every MP has regrouped into their respective safe TRIBAL BLOCKS. Hitherto active supporters of are finding new bearing in their fellow tribesmen. Ababu must have overestimated his resolve and enthusiasm to be consistently vigilant. He has been told that Uhuru is untouchable and he must never make the mistake of assuming that Jomo Jr. is political feather weight Kimunya.
Only in Kenya do whistle blowers promptly acquire tribal tags that relegate them from the hunter to the hunted. The zeal exhibited by MPs Jamleck, Mbau and company betrays their timidity (or was it steadfastness?) during Kimunya’s censor motion in parliament. The law being an ass must be applied to the letter. ECK has proved Uhuru broke the law and only latent support of impunity can make you look the other way and back the DPM. You cannot break the same law you swore to uphold.
Security in number is a lame and laughable defence when caught pants down. More over two wrongs never made a right. Let Kajwang carry his won cross -no need to organize rally in Mbita or having Nyanza Mps cover his back. And if he is proven culpable he must grace the same shame, RESIGN. Reducing Ababu’s resolve to show consistency in seeking good governance and accountability to shoe size only goes to what length our petty politics has degenerated by readily trivializing weight national issues.
Rotten fish syndrome
Impunity is a cancer that gnaws at the heart of good governance and must be fought with every tool available. Uhuru’s nomination of 13 PNU councillors instead of the legal 7 while truncating ODM’s 12 to 11 is the height of political arrogance that can only be supported by incurably disingenuous apologists. an abomination in reflection to good governance. Exceeding the number stipulated in law is not discretion as UK want us to believe by declaring that he did nothing wrong. As discredited as it is, the same ECK that declared Uhuru winner of Gatundu South seat must be respected. You don’t respect the law by trashing it and becoming an authority unto yourself to nominate cronies outside the ECK list.
Reminding Ababu that Uhuru is no Kimunya is to suffer the curse of unlawful monarchy. The truth be told Uhuru was only the bidding of his boss. What do you expect from a desperate prince waiting for coronation when his duly-elected king breaks the laws of the land by openly stealing an election? The fish rots from the head and no attempt at trying to deep fry the body will salvage the stench. Meanwhile it will be a waste of valuable time to seek a vote of no confidence in Uhuru. The best way forward is a shame impunity by degazzeting the excess councillors. Ababu must soldier on in showing new leadership that is chronically missing among the dinosaurs. He may be unpopular right now but he must know he is speaking for the silent majority out here.
