Infectious Selective Censor and Political Suicide

With the smell of political blood still suffocating our political airspace, some of the 10th Parliament MPs are spoiling for another VIP scalp after Kimunya. Trust Kenyan politicians to abuse and use words selfishly to suit their narrow interests. Discretion is the new buzzword among the Grand coalition cabinet ministers. Borrowing Kimunya's script by defending themselves that they acted within prescribed powers, Uhuru and Kajwang are denying any form of impropriety in their actions.

Two wrongs never made a right and so comparing whose crime between Uhuru and Kajwang is bigger amounts to splitting hairs. In Kajwang’s book he overruled his immigration officers in issuing work permits for jobs whose qualifications can be sourced locally. True, the buck stops with the minister as he proudly gloats but he must come out and unambiguously explain if in the process of acting as he did no law was broken. Failure to do so amounts to impunity which is the singular unique characteristic defining this administration.

Uhuru Kenyatta is said to have substituted names for nominations forwarded to him by respective political parties by those of his personal and political liking. Alright, it may be lawful for the local government minister to nominate up to a third of councilors. But the question is did he do it proportionately as per the composition of the elected two thirds? Well, you cannot fail to see the temptation then to tinker with figures during the politically volatile January and February of this year. What of ODM’s numerical superiority at the civic level threatening to upstage and frustrate PNU's power from above? For whatever it was Jomo Jr. must own up to his actions and if he is found to have acted outside his mandate no donning of tribal or party colours will wash. He must carry the cross no matter the weight.

Hare hunting foxes
Having fanned the first embers of political heat, the domino effect of Kimunya’s fall is threatening to come back to claim Martha Karua’s political scalp. The Iron Lady may have played it smart by sticking to the law and prodding his political lapdog Mungatana to expose Kimunya, but her star may be dimmed with the predictable cocked Cocker commission’s report. In all likelihood Kimunya will be exonerated of wrong doing. And that will mark the beginning of fierce intra-Gema wars for political supremacy in tandem with Kibaki succession.

As they say sweet revenge is a menu better served cold. Martha must pray that the Cocker’s commission find Kimunya VERY GUILTY. Otherwise the other 4Ks may just team up to deflate her political balloon. Her intentions of playing above the fray and reproach politics in fighting corruption may be a noble gesture. But in Kenya's hyper-ethnic and regional based politics, her heroics may be turned against her as unforgivable betrayal of one of her own.

The adage of running with the hare to hunt with the foxes couldn’t haven’t have been more apt. It is very ironical but surely not naive to tie Martha’s political future with Amos Kimunya’s fate. It won’t surprise anybody to see the end turning into payback time. Martha’s fate apparently is out of her hands but instead lies with the powers that be. She remains safe if she is their pick otherwise the future bodes ill for her. Only time will tell whether she enriched her political CV or unwittingly committed political suicide in advance.

Anon 9:16, we have heard thank you. You only need to click once on the tab.

Taabu i said that Kimunya's vote of no confidence in parliament was a wake up call to other badly brought up men and women in the August house who thought that acts of impunity can go unpunished. Let them know times have changed and that Kenyans wameerevuka.
If Uhuru and Kajwang are found guilty then the VERDICT is the same, let the musical chairs continue.
Kimunya is innocent or guilty? That was a closed case...Cockar just needs to ask KTN and NTV to play all the comedies that Kimunya treated us to. Ati he even had the audacity to lie in parliament and then he says for the sake of my daughter and wife...Thank God he only had one daughter, there are many whose only crime is to steal 200/= and yet they have a whole football team in the house including substitutes and they are behind bars!!!!
Martha Karua has just finished cramming the script. The movie is yet to begin.....Pass me the coke

Taabu,

I do not want to say "I TOLD YOU SO". But well, there you are.

Check my last week's post again then read today's news on Uhuru, then UJIJAZIE; Unless today's PNU meeting passes palatable resolutions (highly unlikely) Uhuru is definitely on his way out. Maybe even former allies of Kibaki like Kombo might be brought in. Parliament will definitely pass a vote of no confidence on Uhuru for abuse of office. Even ECK, as dicredited as they are, have termed Uhuru's actions on nominated councillors ILLEGAL. Uhuru could easily face court action and a jail term - hoping Ringera is reading this!

I can also assure you, Kajwang will not be taken anywhere, no one has any proof of corruption on him, although PNU are actively working with the DIS and other Immigration Officers to trap / implicate him - what the hell - he has even been offered Kshs. 5,0million pre-marked currency notes in his office in a briefcase)

NEXT ON LINE: George Saitoti. His time will come when the Kriegler and Justice Waki reports will be published. Not forgetting, he has to reckon with a court ordered vote recount in Kajiado North since ODM's Moses ole Sakuda won the parliamentary seat. Everyone knows Saitoti's seat, which were among the last to be announced (like Molo, Nithi, Juja, etc) was part and parcel of the FRAUD in the presidential results rigging scheme by PNU in 2007.

That leaves you with fairly balanced protagonists - Kalonzo and Karua. Going by how a bitter Julia Ojiambo was discarded after offering Kalonzo a soft landing, there is no chance of an alliance between Karua and Kalonzo. Matter of fact, Karua would rather do business with former reformist like herself (Odinga, Orengo) than do business with KANU thugs (Kalonzo, Uhuru, Saitoti) and she is ready to face Kalonzo at any political stage. Bunge, rallies, or whatever.

Watch this space!

Ivy you have the coke am drifted also.

Its expected that because we called for Kimunya's exit that some will also call for Kajwangs exit.Let it be known that minimum justice dictates that the same standards be applied on improperiety.If Kajwang or Uhuru is found to be guilty of an offence either committed or omitted he should face the same fate as Kimunya and others before him.

I have heard some Mps argue that Ababu has put on shoes that are more than his size i wonder what size is fit for which mp.Give us another.

Good day Ivy not week today.......I will eat my week...lol

Phil,

The worst mistake one can do in politics is to underestimate one's opponents. The naive look at some limited successful battles, and then, convinced that their gods are smiling at them, overreach. Soon such people are scattered to the four corners of the political world by a mild wind crying that their success has been stolen.

My prayer is that by overreaching ODM causes the fall of the Grand Coalition so that the coming of a Kalonzo presidency is hastened.
