The adage that those who don’t learn from history are condemned to repeat its fatal mistakes couldn’t have been more apt in the present Kenyan political theatre of absurd. Semantics galore on whether stepping aside is same as resigning. Well, egos have no circumference and you indulge in inflating them all the much you wish till you discover you are only AUTO MASSAGING. Two Finance ministers under single regime in less than five years and both booted out in disgrace for the same reason CORRUPTION.
Only in Kenya do you find a minister begging to be fired when he never asked to be appointed in the first place. The tribal and political kites cannot fly any more and they must take a detour to abyss. There is no substitute to lack of leadership. Decoys and attention deviations can only last so long. In the long run the eggs must kiss your face leaving it plastered with the awful smell. Serial goofs remain the singular thread holding Kibaki’s tattered reign. His apologists may work overdrive sanitizing the rot but unfortunately the nauseating stench overwhelms any tribal deodorant.
Impunity and utter contempt are two sides of the same coin. The Kimunyagate has just started and the script is so predictable and disgusting so much so that it leaves your stomach boiling in bile. The game of semantics is very well calculated to convey the message that nothing has changed. Kimunya has only opted for a sabbatical leave to cool political temperatures. In few months time before you say Lucy he will be back in cabinet just like Mwiraria before him. Jomo Jr and the powers behind the throne cannot just watch as their efforts become a casuality of pressure from public opinion. To hell with the court of public opinion it never made anybody a multi-millionaire.
Serial goofs patented
Grand Regency was just the tip of a massive iceberg. What we are seeing right now are ripples from the NATIOANL RIPOFF that has been going on while we danced to the decoy of 6% economic growth. DECEPTION and FRAUD are the two principal ingredients defining this regime. And these vices are executed with total contempt and unrivalled impunity. The Grand coalition has proved such an inconvenience and irritant to derail the looting gravy train. You cannot fail to see EXPERIENCED civil servants retained purposely to undercut and frustrate the annoying nosers from within the government.
It cannot be sadistic to imagine God calling Kimunya’s bluff by recalling his LUNGS. It is not over till it over. Auctioning country Kenya must continue at whatever cost. At the end of this regime Kenya would be nothing but a mere geographical location exclusively owned by Libyans and Chinese. Kenyans are paying a dear price for having a marionette for a leader. Mistaking cluelessness and characteristic muteness in defence devoid of any trace of pro-activity for leadership is the height of self deception.
Meanwhile the charade promises interesting acts with the budget debate pending appointment of a substantive Finance Minister. Amos has done the necessary shredding in the last week and only a homeboy can be trusted with the key to treasury. In the din of all the suffocating heat we conveniently forget the KING of IMPUNITY as he ruminates on the next priced asset Kenya can offer. Kenya's title deed is up for grabs now that the Libyan Embassy in Nairobi has confirmed that Kibaki and Gaddafi signed three protocols. The state sanctioned LOOTING stinks to high heavens. By the way did Kimunya vow he would rather die than resign? If only God could honour that wish we would be one scoundrel less.
