Something is Bugging Me Big Time

There is something that is really bugging me and I am afraid I cannot keep quiet any more. I just have to speak it out. Dear friends and countrymen kindly bear with me because I will explode if I don’t speak out my heart now.

In the last general elections I had the privilege of casting my vote and I am proud to say that I did not make any of my mistakes of the past of voting along tribal lines. We had “one of our own” (Kalonzo Musyoka) standing and I simply ignored him and voted for the candidate that I thought was best suited for the job at the time. And he was certainly NOT from my tribe. I proudly voted Raila Odinga for president. When it came to MP I had no problem either. I will admit here and now that I am gender biased, given the choice of a man or woman, I tend always to lean on the side of the woman. And with good reason from my own life experiences. When it comes to entrusting responsibility on somebody whom I need to trust, I have hardly ever been let down by women. In my humble view women are the real unsung heroines of the resilient Kenyan economy. So for MP I proudly voted a woman called Wavinya Ndeti and everybody I met I convinced to vote in the same way. Well she won and I know our constituency shall never be the same again.

Now that was 2007. We all know that every election is different. From my many years analyzing politics one thing I can tell you with certainty is that the elections in 2012 will be very different with very different faces.

But “my beef” is with my good friends in ODM. It is widely believed that ODM is the most democratic party in the country. Really? I am sorry but I am really beginning to doubt that.

If ODMers were truly democratic, then why is it that my good friends who support the party get very annoyed, nay extremely upset every time somebody dares to float another name as a possible presidential candidate other than the name of the son of Jaramogi Odinga?

In my humble view where the country has reached now, we need a clean fresh start from a new generation of Kenyan leaders preferably somebody who is NOT in the political class this minute.

Don’t get me wrong. I am convinced beyond any doubt that Raila Odinga won the last presidential elections but to be honest despite the good work he has done thus far, I would advice him not to present himself as a candidate for the presidency in 2012. There are many reasons for this but top on the list is for the sake of national healing and reconciliation. Secondly a man who appoints the likes of William Ole Ntimama into his cabinet is surely a presidential candidate whose time is now past.

But of course I realize it is the captain’s democratic right to decide if he is going to stand or not. But surely can his supporters please give us a break while we discuss the future of the country? Can they bear to think of a future that does not have Raila Odinga in State House? Or is the new slogan now: No Raila, no discussion of any other presidential candidate?

Let the barbs come flying now but remember that I too have a democratic right to my own personal view and opinion.

Chris, Sorry I never believe anything you say.

For correction, in today's standard the Kreigler commission concluded that THE ELECTION WAS NOT RIGGED and Raila DID NOT WIN.

Please don't have nightmares, kreigler is not Kenya and not black but he was very adamant about this one thing;

"Kriegler said the talk of a stolen election was a creation of the civil society. He said several factors contributed to the election fiasco and that the Kenyan society was also to blame."

He went on to say angrily that,

"You had people who used the advantage of incumbency, civil servants participated in the campaigns using state machineries, and there was bloodshed across Kenya ahead of the elections. Looking for fraud at the KICC tallying centre by the KPTJ is honestly focusing at a wrong place," said Kriegler

Chris, the fascists in ODM kill for less. ODMorons are not supposed to think, they are supposed to praise raila and demonize/kill kikuyus Thats the democracy that Nyongo and his pals are bringing here.

What other options do we have?

Kalonzo or Uhuru?....pleeease.

Let us be realistic. This is Kenya and not some developed democracy. Let us not expect a presidential candidate to emerge (like Obama) from nowhere. Whether we 'kithni or ndekni',our next president will be one of the sorry faces we now have.

Chris, Ntimama is a tribal leader just like all the rest and the trend of kenyan politics will be determined for a long time by these tribal kings who as we all know determine who the next president will be. BTW, wasn't he at the forefront during ODM campaigns? why didn't you have second thoughts then?

Folks this is all about choices. Raila's devils are all out in the open. Kibaki's, Kalonzo's Uhuru's etc are all pulling the strings from the darkness. Personally, I would rather deal with the nyang'aus that are visible.

Papi said...

Chris, I discussed this same issue with a friend of mine not long ago and I had the same view. I think we need a clean break from the past. We need someone - just like Barack Obama - who brings people together by inspiring them to rise to take charge of their own destiny and not feed off their insecurities. I think the BEST Odinga and the GCG is to bequeth us a new constitution devoid of gimmickry and vested interests.

Vikii said...

ODM is "the most democratic party"? Well, that's bizarre.

Taabu said...

Chris,
You are spot on. But the whole post latently admits that nothing is ging to change between now and 2012 and hence the obsession with personalities.

If this poltical marriage of convinience (GCG) was to be selfish and offer Kenya a new katiba, we won't care less who is sleeping at SH. But truest me eac of the OLD FACES want that present power inatct all-motions-no-move notwithstanding.

Granted 2012 is just but 4 years a way and where is this MESSIAH who we want? Even Obama had to start from Chicaga and 4 years ago maid is intention known. So where is our Obama ama not yet born? You have to dirty your hands to access the political water to clean it. Failure to do that we are headed for more corronations.

If only we could be sincere then we would demand that CLEAN hand to have his/her hat in the ring NOW. Otherwise all the support for new leadership amounts to disguised dishonesty - reasoning by displacement where you crowd to fight perceived or real enemy as a cover to protect your own. Reminds you of Pakis after Musharaf quit.

All Krigler is saying with the kind of atmosphere that had been created prior to the election (both ODM and PNU created this mess. ODM by demonizing Kikuyus and PNU by painting Raila unelectable), it was very hard for the ECK to run a civilized election. He at no tme says Raila lost.

My verdict, proper laws should be in-place to deal with such scenarios. We need to regulate how campaigns are run in Kenya by coming up with tough laws on ethnic relations, conduct during elections, nominations aka political parties act and finally how ECK commissioners are nominated, their conduct and how they will deal with situation like last year's.

For now the two men sharing power is the best we can do and hope we will put in place proper laws and have everyone be convicted by the same laws i.e no one is above these laws.

Chris
I hate to agree with you but i guess i must since it is the truth.We luos have to accept the fact that "even though Raila would make a great president it is not a "must" that he becomes one" at this time he is still my candidate of choice but should a younger more promising person out side of parliament come up with a convinsing and persuasive case for the kenyan people then iam sorry Raila,i will have to put the country first on this one , but please chris please, please, please drop that Githongo nonsense , a man who lacks honor is not fit to be president , no matter how wrong the muraria's were he had no right to record private conversations without the consent of the recordees , all he needed to do was display a disclaimer in his offices that goes some thing like "you are being recorded in this faclity for your own good and for that of the motherland".

Kwale said...

Chris, it took you 8 long months to realise Raila Odinga ni bure kabisa… something that took me less than a day to realise. I only had to read ODM manifestos and campaign strategy to know ODM was in to rule, win or lose. Raila definition for CHANGE was the change of the one who sit in the statehouse and democracy to him meant gain for one tribe and lose for another, basically "our time to eat is now". He never really represented anything democracy, his inclusion of some of the most notorious thugs like Ntimama and Ruto should have sounded alarming bells for you.

I come from coast, and just like you, I don’t vote along tribal lines and I don't believe tribe should be a criteria in choosing who should govern the country.

What we need in Kenya is a visionary leader with burning visions for the present and future, someone who is able to articulate those visions with great inspiration and create specific, achievable goals, initiates action and enlists the participation of others.
Furthermore, coexistence and pluralism is the way forward for our country now. We cannot live in a country that is divided alongside tribal lines and expect to achieve anything. The destiny of our country is in our hands collectively.

4 years ago very little was known of this Senator of Illinois, today this young visionary leader has risen to become an international superstar, but what we don't know is, the young barack was unknowingly being sharpened while working as a community leader for the greater task that was ahead of him. What I am trying to say here is, you must be willing to be a servant before you can actually serve. Raila has never wanted to serve, he has always wanted to rule, right from day one. If he wanted to serve, he would have done something for the residents of Kibera, at least give them some decency and built a pit latrine which does not cost that much.

****am lost, please explain to me how he can be trusted with a country's peace and unity?
Please don't mention the peace talks he partcipated in when minister for foreign affairs (task any foreign affairs minister would have dealt with)

As for unity, am not sure how he is or plans to be a uniter. First, just like the sloth at SH, it will take a long time for 6 provinces to accept him. That is why, in between jetting in and out of the country (does he still think he's in foreign affairs?)he only has the guts to visit central and ukambani.

Now, tell me what peace and unity are you talking about? the vp deal after elections?

Shun PNU, Karua tells Narc-K members

Updated 4 hr(s) 7 min(s) ago

By Willis Oketch

Narc-Kenya chairperson Martha Karua has warned party members against joining PNU during the party’s recruitment drive in October.

Karua said any member who crosses to PNU from Narc-Kenya risked being deregistered.

Karua, also the Justice Minister, cautioned party members in Mombasa after meeting Coast representatives.

"If anybody is recruited he or she will be deemed as having resigned from the party," she said.

She said the Political Parties Act forbids party members from joining two parties.

Karua said Narc-Kenya officials were meeting grassroots leaders to strengthen the party.

By the way, I am one of those Kenyans who are looking forward to seeing two or three new (fresh faces) presidential candidates in 2012.

Chris, guess what, strike out "one of your own" from the shortlist, yaani, anybody, any mkamba, any candidate but Kalonzo Musyoka, the one time slick operator from the dark decades of Nyayoism. He has always been a real player from the chapters of Kivulini and Msufi Mkavu.


Don't forget to strike out the following names as well, Uhuru Mutt Kenyagiza, Ruto Rotter Rotor, Raila Roulette, Ngilu Niggle, Karua Rarua-Rower, Kombo Knobbly Kombo-Combo, Mudavadi Divided, and don't even think of mentioning the name Jimmy Jemmy Kibaki as a replacement for his you know what.

Kevin Myers: “Africa is giving nothing to anyone - apart from AIDS”
July 12, 2008 on 2:18 am | In Reality news, Articles, environment, globalism, politics, society |
Holy shit… Myers destroying the Africa pityfest in the indo:

———–

No. It will not do. Even as we see African states refusing to take action to restore something resembling civilisation in Zimbabwe, the begging bowl for Ethiopia is being passed around to us, yet again. It is nearly 25 years since Ethiopia’s (and Bob Geldof’s) famous Feed The World campaign, and in that time Ethiopia’s population has grown from 33.5 million to 78 million today.

So why on earth should I do anything to encourage further catastrophic demographic growth in that country? Where is the logic? There is none. To be sure, there are two things saying that logic doesn’t count.

One is my conscience, and the other is the picture, yet again, of another wide-eyed child, yet again, gazing, yet again, at the camera, which yet again, captures the tragedy of . . .

Sorry. My conscience has toured this territory on foot and financially. Unlike most of you, I have been to Ethiopia; like most of you, I have stumped up the loot to charities to stop starvation there. The wide-eyed boy-child we saved, 20 years or so ago, is now a priapic, Kalashnikov-bearing hearty, siring children whenever the whim takes him.

we now have almost an entire continent of sexually hyperactive indigents, with tens of millions of people who only survive because of help from the outside world. This dependency has not stimulated political prudence or commonsense.

Meanwhile, Africa’s peoples are outstripping their resources, and causing catastrophic ecological degradation.

So, how much sense does it make for us actively to increase the adult population of what is already a vastly over-populated, environmentally devastated and economically dependent country?

One thing I learned by chance as a teenager when I started travelling outside of Nairobi was that there are at least two kenyans.....


There are the people like you and me who blog here and there those 'average' kenyans who earn a salo that will shock you....unfortunately we do the talking they do the voting and our opinions matter very little in those decisions.


Thats why 'we' were shocked at the violence while 'they' are raring to go even tomorrow if need be. We have simply failed to engage this guys and cary them with, therefore forget that dream of a new someone they don't know..it will never come true,

We have had matibas,and the like when ROA run the fisrt time he was young, even the match talked about kalooser had his 15min of fame and bombed out....his only real chances is if none of the big boys and girls are running and the same old tribal politics are run to the max hec he claimed RAO was unelectable for being luo.....pretty much what the clintons thought of Obama.....so how can leopard change its skin?


They way kenyan politics operates is that its a democracy ....something some slow guys here seem not to get....If Ntimama represents a large constituency of kenyans....and I mean constituency in its broader meaning....then is political suicide in a democrary to ignore him....presidents in a democracy unfortately have to do that.....


I have a rwandese friend who went back home soon after kagame came to power and was dissapointed to find some old known thugs in gov....fortunately kagame afforeded him an audience to air his issues and he was told that to hold the country together for a while that was necessary.....same with kenya depending on you bias RAO is enteraining Emelio or vice versa for the sake of peace for all kenyans......


so lets not try and be too simplistic. The field is open and any 'gladiator' can jump in........unfortunately you cannot vote against... so be that knew person and try your luck........you may find that you can still work very well under RAO much better than you think........

I have always maintained that most kenyans voted RAO because they hated the kikuyus,not because the know what he stands for....prior to the attempted kikuyunisation of kenya by Emelio and co....kalonzo was right to say that RAO being a luo was simply not electable....it took a great percieved or real offense on kenyans to forget their luo hatrade...most old politicians would count on it....and that may be RAOs and kenyas nxt great battle a genuine non tribal kenyan politics its a long way coming but hope it comes soon.


A major change is not carrid out by one man, its about that person reading the prevailing mood and riding it like a surfer rides a wave and kenyans are still too tribal to see clearly.....most of it is childish and based on personal issues with some member of the hated tribe....that is then generalised....and the all too human need to feel superior to anyone by any means possible be it age, education, skin colour , hieght we are so desparate we have even included tribe.

The Constitution will change and Executive powers will be vested in the Prime Minister. He/She would have to command a nationwide appeal and a grassroots movement that will include a majority.

Therefore the Presidency will be in effect, ceremonial a best. That said, come 2012, a new face will occupy that office. As for the PM, it remains to be seen if ODM will scuttle this constitutional ideal that Kenyans have time and again laid claim as a preferred structure of governance. That leave Raila in an awkward position and probably vulnerable, to a NEW FACE.

I've championed Raila's cause but Kenya needs to move on and do away with the past. If the constitution is revised, 2012 will bring in a new wave of leaders. Forget Uhuru, forget Raila and Forget Ruto.

It has taken you 8 months to realize that Raila is no leader?! You are truly weird. So why did you vote for him? If you had taken the time to assess his performance in Kibera for all the time he has been Langata MP, you would have known that he is incapable of leading anybody, not even leading goats to cross a road. He could not mobilize Kibera residents to help themselves by building pit latrines in order to permanently do away with flying toilets(or vision 1750 behavior), he will mobilize and lead Kenyans to realize vision 2030, complete with European standard roads? What a daydreamer. It seems to me he would do better to help Kenyans realize vision 1500!

We voted for ODM in large numbers. i doubt if i will vote again unless it is a woman president especially this woman who doesnt know her tribe, Njoki Ndungu. another woman i can vote for would be wangari mathaai or ngilu. these men are just grabbers after power. i hear kibaki wants to be prime minister 2013!
