It defeats any sane and logical reasoning why Kenyans would want Finance Minister Amos Kimunya to make painful and costly history by resigning due to public pressure. We must learn as a country to RESPECT authority. Only the DULY ELECTED HE President Kibaki has the powers to dismiss Kimunya. Other pretenders to the throne in the shape of committees must be ashamed of abrogating themselves powers they don’t have in the first place. In all honesty why would SHAMELESSLY apportion yourself the power to recommend a minister’s resignation while your opinion was not sought on his appointment?
All political propagandists baying for Kimunya’s blood must be seen for what they truly are. Theirs is all heat and no light clothed in quest for mob justice theatrics. Shame of these cowards who are only cleverly angling to besmirch youthful and COMPETENT accountant Kimunya. For starters Hon Kimunya ate nobody’s goat. And if you ever thought one Bernard Chunga had monopoly for bravado UK has done better in defending Kimunya by SIMPLY asking what has been stolen, by whom, and from where? You can smell seasoned and CALCULATIVE politician miles away. The scion of Jomo knows when to zip his mouth and brains. He can only comment authoritatively and usefully after CONSULTATION - when the coast is clear. And that is measured leadership from the front and by example.
Kenyans have unwittingly fallen for lynch mob mentality. Kimunya made it very clear the Grand Regency sale was an inter Government deal and why would Gaddafi deal with a mere minister and not his peer? Simply put we are collectively having our guns on the WRONG head. Meanwhile Kimunya deserves accolades and promotion to DPM for his unrivalled bravery to STOP the bullet for the boss who is busy offering REAL leadership albeit in silence. Add to that Kimunya's SPECIAL and IRREPLACEABLE role in Kibaki's family and you see why the president as a caring father cannot betray his own blood. No sane person would.
Top legal brains
Kenya is a civilized country rules by an educated economist. We must not allow mob psychology to derail our national efforts to industrialize in 2010. The likes of Orengo must stop splitting hairs and take the long beaten path to civilization. Let aggrieved Kenyans take their case to our internaltionally respected law courts. Kimunya is not a hawker or a fishmonger. All his actions benefited from the services of best legal brains in the name of Gichira Kibara, who was the chair of the Kenya National NGO Council not long ago. Nolw you see why the civic society and their noise is a mile behind this top notch lawyer.
It is time Kenyans consolidated their energies to help HE Kibaki build a prosperous African Tiger. Forget the fight for working institutions, they never bring food on the table. Even citizens of the most developed countries of the West are politically ILLITERATE to an extent of not knowing their leaders. In tandem we must pursue jealously the economic growth of our leaders and ask no questions lest we detract them from their clever schemes at our collective peril. We are a fortunate nation thanks to a farsighted president. We have an army colonel who not only doubles up as our National Security Intelligence Service Director but most important of all an astute businessman that cuts red tape when it matters. It is in the DNA people. Kazi iendelee.
