The perils of living a political lie must be taking its heavy toll on Kibaki. With the political bills knocking, the opportunity wouldn’t have been more favourable to flex political muscles in managing own succession-autopolitisiasis. But alas! Kenyan political birds have discovered the feathers on the owl’s head and no amount of threat and misinformation that they are horns will wash.
As Mungatana aptly put it PNU ran its course and the vehicle delivered its goods. It may be time to seek fresh business but not so fast when the passenger has just discovered the beauty and benefits of owning the car. Now that the wheels are claimed by everybody with eyes singularly trained in 2012 when Kibaki will be past his sell-by date, whom do you turn to for negotiation? Well, Kibaki has the power instruments of an incumbent and whether he wields that to beat everybody in line is proving to be politically very elusive.
With DP throwing political tantrums at any available microphone, Kibaki finds himself with many political foes than friends. Mark you some of these people know him better than all of us put together and his penchant to ride on people’s back may prove to be his Achilles heels this time round. With Martha and co pissing from inside and daring both perceived and real political foes awaiting the President’s hand, the political road ahead can be anything but not smooth.
Toothless political dog
Four years is a lifetime in politics and Kibaki needs all his political associates lest he is left holding the leaking bath tub with the baby gone. The Gema votes are central to his political schemes and the same commodity pushes Kibaki between the hard rock and the political dark blue sea. The political concoction of Jomo Junior and Prof Kiarie Kinuthia complicates matters for the present heir presumptive. While the hand is crying to be exposed, the law and benefits of loyalty demands otherwise and in the process tension boils.
So how do you rediscover your political teeth when the law of disuse have dispensed of the same? Well, the perils of living a political lie shrouded in deception is not sustainable and the facade may just be about to explode. The DP brigade knows better and with them lies some of the finest strategies to expose the King’s nudity. The time of political reckoning is here and the faint-hearted are in for the shock of their lives. Welcome to realpolitik made in Kenya as practiced by political scoundrels. Simply put PNU was a political fraud and the monster is coming back for its dues.
