It is a fact that those who know the president well will tell you that right from the referendum of 2005 the decisions made by the Kibaki they have known for years is just not him. In a long career in public service, this is a man who has always come across as a very sober political player with a sharp mind and sharp wit to go with it. Hardly the president who blundered his way through his first term so much so that there was a time most Kenyans did not believe that he would complete his first term. He actually limped along and even had to ask for the help of retired president Moi to steady things along.
And this is one of the reasons why when well known political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi predicted as early as 2003 that there was no way that Kibaki would have over power peacefully if he were defeated, he caused an uproar and even many die hard ODM supporters at the time found this assertion ridiculous.
Kibaki admirers insist that all this is clear evidence that he never really recovered from that horrible accident of late 2002 that almost took his life. There are those who strongly believe that that road accident denied
Instead, president Kibaki will not only go down in history as the president who has overseen the most massive tribalization of the Kenyan people in the history of the country, but he will also be remembered as the president who insisted on going for a second term when clearly he had not even been physically fit to handle his stormy first term.
His two terms will also be viewed as a stormy period in the history of the country when may things went wrong because there was no clear leadership at a time when the country needed it badly.
Sadly there are many politicians and Kenyans who think that the office of the president is one comfortable office of honour and glory. They refuse to see the pressures of the office that made Moi age so fast in the years after the re-introduction of multi-partyism. The same office has taken it’s toll on president Kibaki who was already weak and on a wheel chair.
In conclusion it is rather obvious that the president is not healthy or fit enough to handle the demanding pressures so rather than continue to tarnish his image built of many years, the most honorable things and continue to carry out OR gimmicks to hoodwink Kenyans, the most honorable thing for his to do would be to resign now. He would be able to prove his critics wrong, who aver that he has never done a single courageous thing in his long political career.
