The Lion King In Bow Tie

President John Kufour of Ghana is entertained at the White House during his three day visit.

Ain't that presidential?

And when will Kibaki ever be invited anywhere? Even Moi used to fly out once in a while…you know making us proud with his scrappy 'English' and coming back with cow feed. Although Kalonzo was received and hosted by obscure assistant ministers and sub chiefs in Beijing, at least he flew the Kenyan flag. As for Raila, even though he's a perennial pest at the Obama residence in Chicago, he's read some good speeches in a few places.
While world leaders wine and dine for the benefit of their countries, Kibaki is sitting on a stool under a mango tree in the State House back yard.

What I'm asking is this, when was the last time a Kenyan political leader made you feel proud?

Fellas, if we leave it up to these mad men (no offence to real mental patients) masquerading as leaders, we will reduce our status to equal countries like Chad or Equatorial Guinea (no intended offense to Chadians or Equatorial Guineas).

"What I'm asking is this, when was the last time a Kenyan political leader made you feel proud?"

Good question, KALAMARI. The answer is right in front of you. Remember the 10 Downing Street? (I really haven't travelled beyond the Kenyan borders, but it sounds something of that sort).

In short, the elected President of the Republic of Kenya and Prime Minister of the Republic of Kenya (you know he performs duties two-fold), led a Powerful Delegation to London. He met his British counterpart Gordon Brown, and his speech was equally powerful, and left an impact on the global scene.

That's the proudest moment I can imagine, and that's what we call statesmanship.

You know whenever H. E. Raila Amollo Odinga speaks or does a thing, even the world's most powerful and influential people applaud, and only the likes of m-pesa remain fidgetty. Forget the lousy bastard sleeping, drinking, eating like a glutton and vomitting on Donors' shoes, and peeing on himself @ State House. He even had his visas cancelled by the West.

That son-of-a-bitch has run out of ideas and that's why the West are ashamed of associating with him.

Viva Raila Viva.

In my world, Kibaki is a failure of many problems.

But the biggest problem still remains corruption. Mega scandals like the Anglo leasing have been such an embarrassment. A reduction in official corruption has enabled the government to collect more revenue and do with very little foreign aid, but a startling failure to wipe it out completely has also meant that we have not lived up to our potential. The abetment of corruption is responsible for the meager salaries that civil servants, policemen and teachers continue to earn.

As much as this President wants to be remembered as the one who put Kenya’s economy back on track that is going to prove really hard if, in his own words, corruption doesn’t cease to be a way of life.

When it comes to political reform, President Kibaki has been a stark failure. To this end, he can only be credited with promoting press freedom and expanding the democratic space. Unlike the KANU era when Moi, for a quarter century, kept a lid on political dissent by maintaining a permanent state of emergency, now people can say whatever they want without looking over their shoulders. Police harassment of opposition politicians is a thing of the past. But Kenyans can also remember that it was his own wife who terrorized innocent journalists, slapping them and asking them stupid questions in the middle of the night. The President never saw it fit to issue an apology. His lieutenant, John Michuki, with the help of Armenian terrorists, presided over the most barbaric attack on any media house in recent history!

President Mwai Kibaki promised Kenyans a decent agreeable constitutional document within 100 days of his assumption of office. It has now been more than 2000 days and that promise continues to be a pipe dream. You cannot talk of any meaningful political reform if the constitution that guides you is a hoax. It is the very renege on this promise that is responsible for last year’s disputed election. It is the reason why, in some people’s minds, he is not the legitimate President of Kenya.

I also do not think the President can claim to have overseen meaningful political reforms when almost half of those sitting in his cabinet are characters with dubious pasts. Whatever reasons he has them in government and not in jail are, to me, not buyable.

As far as I am concerned, President Kibaki has been good for the country economically but awful politically. Which begs the question; which one comes first-the economy or the politics? And can we really have both? The way we want them?

E-cop said...

Bwana Kalamari, don't you remember Kibaki was already a guest of the state in Washington D.C. in 2003-Kibaki was the first visiting African head of state to be royally feted by the then new presidency of George Bush junior who was in his first term
In addition to this, Kibaki courted prominent guest heads of state in the early part of the first term of his presidency, most notable of which was President Clinton who wanted to meet Kibaki because he admired him
i'm sure you know all this already-the point of your post i find more interesting is why we kenyans allow ourselves to be ruled by mad men....well, not only does it take one mad man to know another(so all of us voters are mad), but also we get the leaders we deserve....so mad they may be but we deserve them-let us enjoy them in all their "mental" glory

Vikii said...

Vikii@ 9.19, I know what you would like to be when you grow up, but let us be a little original. Let us be confident with ourselves and trust our heads as opposed to other people's heads.

Whatever you copy-pasted means something different to you than it does to me. While to you it is an endorsement of another leader who to me is the biggest failure there is, to me it is an objective judgement on the President. when you want us to compare him with some of the other failures, then we part ways--irreconcillably.

Kalamari, do you agree with me that different things make us proud? There are those Kenyans who feel so proud when they see Otieno Kajwang hold yet another press conference. It doesn't matter what he is saying. He could be talking about being in his bedroom with his wife. There are those others who wouldn't care whether their MPs ever hold press conferences or not. They care about much more important things. I dont know where you belong.

Just to repeat what e-cop has told you, Mwai Kibaki was the first African President invited for a state dinner at the Bush Whitehouse. First. I dont know whether that made you proud. Bill Clinton, one of America's all time greatest Presidents and my favourite politician in the world, expressed his desire to meet Kibaki in 2004, a wish that was granted in 2005. I don't know whether that made you proud. It made me proud not because he said that but because of the reason he wanted to meet him. When you read about the Time listing Kibaki as one of the 100 people in the world with a potential to lead, did you feel some pride? When you read about President Kibaki being the first African to graduate from the London School of Economics with a first class degree, do you feel proud?

Most likely, none of the above made/makes you proud. And nobody is surprised because like I told, we are excited by dfferent things. The reason I am not surprised, is because Phil, easily one of those who inspires you the most, was talking about Raila Odinga being on a "state" visit to Britain a couple months ago. That was strange to me, but certainly not to you or him. Different things mean diferent things to us. While Kalonzo Musyoka may have been met by "assistant ministers and subchiefs in Beijing", keep it mind that this is an individual who has addressed the UN General Assembly 7 times.
We dont talk about it all the time, do we?

Anon @ 11.06. International politics is all about clout and status. There's a reason why fewer Ugandans are dying from HIV compared to Kenya.

As you know, Bush has skipped visiting Kenya because of Kibaki and as such UG has benefited more in terms of getting the funds needed to save and educate their people.

Kenyans on the other hand are dying like flies while Kibaki is snoring in a state house masterbedroom.

Kibaki is embarrassing us bwana.

E-cop said...

please all the anons like 11:14 let us not bash Kibaki (or ANYONE ELSE FOR THE RECORD) blindly... Kibaki's personality may not be your cup of tea but you should not unfairly refuse to acknowledge whatever achievements he has done for the country whether they could have been done better or not
Bush skipping visits to Kenya does not mean we are less well-off than our neighbours TZ and UG-in the long run its not coming to visit someone for a cup of tea that counts its whether those visits make any impact to your ordinary life and mine as well

Kwale said...

So what if Kibaki will never be invited anywhere? Not everyone like limelight and not everyone is a party animal. I don't fault Mr kibaki at all for choosing to sit under mango tree than socialise with people he doesn't know.

Kalamari, what I am about to say here may not sound like good music in your ears, but Kibaki is the best president Kenya has ever had up to date.
Since he took the office about 6 years ago, Kenya has seen a surge of economic growth, his development record is second to none, the inflation rate has fallen to all time low up until 2007 and the country has become more and more free.

I will list some of the benefits Kenya has enjoyed under Kibaki administration.

1. In 2003, the government adopted a key anti-corruptions laws and reforms which lead to IMF approving a poverty reduction and growth facility worth billions of dollars.

2. The privatization bill has been enacted, civil reforms has been implemented and the country has won a UN Public Reform Award.

3. In 2007 the government unveiled a highly ambitious Vision 2030, the first of its kind in Africa.

4. Tea, coffee, horticultural, sisal and other exports rose to $2.2 billion per year.

5. In 2006, Chinese president signed a deal for oil exploration in the country. The drilling has already started somewhere in the north near the border with Somalia.

6. Tourism rose to a record 5% since the East African bombings in 1998.

7. The number of middle-class grew, this was noted by the number of car imports from Japan and other places.

And last but not the least, Kenyans began to take the piss, calling it their democratic rights. In other words people continue to enjoy freedom of speech with less police harassment and also the media has become more diverse which many other African countries can only dream about.

He has done his job so why should he hang-out with losers like Bush.

Kibaki for Nobel prize!!!

1.14, I knew this would come with folks like you in the forum.

I want you to look at the picture on this post. Do you think President Kuffour was invited to Washington because of anything else besides his being President of Ghana?

If you want the focus to be on the "STATE" visit by Raila Odinga to London, do you think he went there as the Party Leader of the Nyanza Development Party (NDP) or he went as the Prime Minister of Kenya? That was an invitation to both President and Prime Minister of Kenya. It had nothing to with Raila's known passion for anarchy--which by the way is the only thing he is "known for".

Do I worship Kalonzo Musyoka? Well, I didnt know the kettle was blacker than the pot. Now, I do.

Anonymous said...

Vikii,

This is all about perception. Kuffuor has generally conducted himself admirably compared to sloths like kibaki. The whole world was conned into believing all the stuff about Kibaki based on theories from the 60s including the 'brilliant economist' tag that is frankly stale and sickening. The excitement about 'the brilliant pressy' soon dissipated because one cannot live a lie for...ever.
About Raila being known for anarchy - well that is as convincing as telling me that Kalonzo has 'done a lot for the country in his twenty something years as an mp and as a minister'.
Please remind me where Raila was during kalonzo's ' mtukufu baba moi days', and 'those thinking multipartism must be daydreamers', days?
By the way, welcome to the worshippers club.

kalamari said...

Vikii, greatness is judged by it's consistency. Kibaki was by all means a great student…..but we are all aware of how Africans were 'passed' in exams so as to provide candidates of leadership…some kind of affirmative action. Now I'm not saying that Kibaki was 'sailed through' but let's face it, it does not take rocket science to collect taxes. What outstanding economic model has come out of that balding head? The fact of the matter is that Moi had run the country down to the point that anybody who took over from him would definitely succeed. I mean we couldn't get any lower.

And another thing Vikii, Kibaki's invitation to the state dinner had nothing to do with him as a person. Look, let us admit. That invitation was an acknowledgement of the great stride Kenyans had taken by defeating KANU and Moi in particular. We had shown that in Africa, democracy was possible. We were the pride of Africa and we had to be feted. In fact, as Kibaki sheepishly walked that red carpet, one had a feeing that the man did not really encompass the struggle and consequent victory of the Kenyan people. And even with that, the person who was the engine of that fight cannot be disputed….it was not Kibaki. On a lighter note, do you remember Lucy's costume?

In the end, this man squandered all the goodwill and if left unchecked will make us a pariah state.

As for Kalonzo at the UN, you don’t get a pat on the back for stopping at a red light.

THIS IS CRAZY!! ATI WHAT? NOW Libyan COMPANY(actually owned by kikuyu elite mafia) WERE PAID MORE MONEY TO BY THE GRAND REGENCY??? KENYANS DOES THIS MAKE SENSE???????????????



CBK denies paying Libyan firm Sh36.5m

Updated 3 hr(s) 48 min(s) ago

By Alex Ndegwa

A Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) official has denied the bank gave a Libyan firm that bought the Grand Regency Hotel Sh36.5 million after the sale.

CBK Director of Legal Services Kennedy Abuga said he was not aware the bank gave the Libyan African Investment Company (Laico) proceeds from the hotel.

Mr Abuga’s statement contradicted evidence by Mr Patrick Maina of Ernest & Young, the bank’s receiver-manager, who said CBK instructed him to give the new Libyan owners Sh36,510,736.

Abuga said apart from Sh2.9 billion realised from the June 25 sale of the hotel, a further Sh342 million held in escrow accounts had been transferred to CBK.

This prompted assisting counsel Wilfred Mati to remind the witness the commission investigating the sale of the hotel had heard evidence that the purchaser was given Sh36.5 million.

Maina told the Justice (rtd) Majid Cockar-led commission the money was to keep the hotel running.

But Abuga responded: "I am not aware of any amount that was given to Laico. But there is audit going on at the hotel and the outcome will shed light."

receiver manager

The commission heard CBK appointed Maina as the receiver-manager on April 9 and he handed over running of the facility to Laico on July 24.

He said CBK directed him to release money in current accounts to Laico and retain the balance of Sh308.5 million in fixed accounts.

Abuga denied claims he camped at the Lands offices on June 25 to hasten registration of transfer of the property.

He dismissed as incorrect statements by two Lands officials - Ms Rosinah Mule and Mr Fredrick Wanyonyi -that he together with lawyer Adan Ahmed, acting for Laico, exerted undue pressure on them.

Can I make it clear to everyone here, Raila has never been on a state visit.

A state visit is a formal visit by one head of state (which clearly Raila is not) to another country, at the invitation of the other country's head of state. State visits are the highest form of diplomatic contact between two states, and are marked by major ceremonial and diplomatic formality.

A good example is the recent state visit of Somali interim president Abdullahi Yusuf to France in July this year and subsequent state dinner that followed in presidential palace in Paris.

Raila visit to UK was NOT state visit but it was an invitation by UK Prime Minister who is not the head state, to promote trade and business after you dickheads (ODMers) brought your own country to its kneel. The aim of the visit was to promote the nation as a peaceful country for foreign investors.
I hope this crystal clear to you ODMers who believe Raila went to UK on a state visit. He didn’t even stop at Buckingham Palace the official residence of UK head of state. The Queen did not even know he visited the country.

FYI, Gordon Brown cannot pass any motion even in parliament without Queen's approval.

Kalamari,

I don't know whether it's 'Kalaha Mariiih' or Kalahi Mariiih'. Anyway, Pwezaaah it is due to the usual ... marinade mulingotini.

Back to the question of "When was the last time a Kenyan political leader made you feel proud?"

I have never had any reason as to why I would have any pride in our "tumbo-mbele-politicians", or even take pride in anything associated with the "tumbo-mbili-politicians", after they fought so hard from behind the scenes in order to hike their undeserved salaries, benefits packages, perks and what have you.

In the meantime, their track records speak volumes, while economic, social and intellectual cronic stagnation continues to inject decay into whole countryside.

In brief Cuiusvis hominis est errare; nullius nisi insipientis in errore perseverare. Cicero, Philippicae, XII, 2, 5

So far, there are so many political fools in parliament who keep making the same mistakes over and over again, and I am afraid that the same mistakes will be repeated by the next parliament after 2012 at our peril.

Judas Iscariot only went to Beijing to ride on our backs as usual, and perhaps, to initiate another Grand Fictitious deal on behalf of that lousy bastard called Kibaki, and everyone knows that.

Remember how Kibaki and his sidekick loser Maina Kamanda gambled with Kenyan soccer? Harambee Stars literally went to the dogs till the duo of RAO and Prof. Sambili came into the picture.

Please stop being ambiguous.

When you say tourism rose by 5%, what is this 5%?

Have the anti-corruption laws achieved anything? I only know Ringera used some spanner boys to stage-manage events by hiring junior Government officers to pretend to have been caught on camera participating corruption or stealing, while MEGA SCAM curlprits (read Ministers and Senior Civil Servants from Lesotho) still land good jobs (as KWS Chairman lately).

When Parliament snatched him teeth, he started crying crocodile tears. And Kenyans were singing, "Cry, Baby Ringera, cry!"

Have you forgotten that it is the same Privatisation Act that Baby Kimunya hid under to snatch Safaricom from us? (Hoo, Safaricom IPO, Hoo, the Prime Minister knew. Hoo, Grand Regency, Hoo, people of Kipipiri please help me. Noooo)!

When you talk about the middle class grew, what about middle class?

And speaking of less police harassment of the media, please tell me if it was not during your son-of-a-bitch's rule that faceless goons descended on The Standard Group without mercy. Tell me if it's not the same period that the fat sick bitch harassed Clifford Derrick just for taking her picture. Please stop being naive.

Just read this guys. I saw it in an belivable site and thought to share it with you good people here!
Some is seeing the king naked and ready to say so. Read...
By Koigi Wa Wamwere

When leaders hoist themselves to the highest perch of power – the Presidency – they expose themselves to public scrutiny and judgement. When Kenyans fail to acknowledge their leaders’ failures, they do so at their own peril and pay dearly for the services those leaders fail to deliver.

What then will history say about President Kibaki? It will not say he was a great leader. It will say he had five cardinal failures.

Kibaki’s supporters have always denied his cardinal sin of cowardice but posterity will judge him most harshly for his recent criminal failure to protect thousands of Kenyans who were killed and displaced in the worst ethnic fighting in our history.

Kibaki is guilty because Government intelligence services informed him of who was planning war, where and against who but did nothing to protect innocent Kenyans who ended up dead or displaced. For his omission, he is as guilty of war as its perpetrators.

Kibaki’s second cardinal sin is that throughout his life, he has never fought for the freedom he has never hesitated to enjoy. Indeed, posterity will remember him most for equating fighting dictatorship with the madness of felling a fig tree with a razor blade.

But fighting for freedom means sacrificing and Kibaki has never sacrificed for any cause, person or even self. Despite his lack of gratitude, others have always sacrificed for him.

Kibaki’s third cardinal sin is his failure to acknowledge, thank and compensate freedom fighters or even those who have fought and sacrificed for him. Like one who has never heard that when a cow suffers injury in the pastures, it drags itself home for assistance, when freedom fighters and their families turn to him for acknowledgement and support, he looks the other way.

Without being taken to court, Kibaki’s government has refused to acknowledge, thank, compensate and apologise to freedom fighters for all the pain and ruin they suffered with their families.

By failing to compensate freedom fighters, Kibaki’s fourth cardinal sin has been perpetuation of past injustices like corruption and ruin of freedom fighters. Mau Mau freedom fighters who lost land remain landless.

Fighters for second liberation who lost their jobs and incomes remain destitute, hungry and sick. The State will pay them neither compensation nor pensions. Even their children lack employment because their parents could not educate them from graves or prisons.

The fifth cardinal sin of Kibaki comes to mind when you read about Italy’s recent paying Libya $5 billion for colonialism or Germany’s earlier compensation to Jews for holocaust.

Unlike Gaddafi, Kibaki has failed to stand up to Britain for Kenya and demand both apology and compensation for colonialism, Mau Mau brutalities and wars of colonial conquest. Instead, like Kenyatta and Moi before him, Kibaki bows to Britain as if by colonising and robbing us, she did us a favour.

But many Kenyans share Kibaki’s guilt. We supported and voted for his presidency, despite our clear knowledge of his weaknesses. Kenya must never fail with another leader the way it failed with Kibaki and Moi.

Sir Alex,

Who is a hero worshipper here? I don't worship fellow human beings and Kibaki is not my fan!
I am a die-hard F1 fan and particularly Lewis Hamilton, and I also contribute regularly in motorsports magazine called 'Sniff Petrol', a satirical online F1 magazine.

Back to my comment, I don't bullshit here or take side, I write facts! Whether you like Kibaki or not what I have detailed there in my penultimate comment are the true facts. And that's how Kibaki is viewed by the outside world. Did you not read about what Raila former personal aide Leone Salim said, he said, "the international community, including diplomats in Nairobi, felt Kenya would be better off with President Kibaki for continuity and saw Raila as a communist."
And that is the view shared by the former head of Commonwealth, Royal African Society and the Chatham House.

The international community is aware of corruption in Kibaki's regime, but they have full confidence in him and see him as predictable in comparison to communist, tribalist Raila Molasses Odinga.

Msema Kweli said...

Kwale you have just distorted the truth - you have just told a boldfaced lie and laced it with your own irrational and demented HATRED of Raila.

I quote you "Did you not read about what Raila former personal aide Leone Salim said, he said, "the international community, including diplomats in Nairobi, felt Kenya would be better off with President Kibaki for continuity and saw Raila as a communist."" You then, towards the end of your comment, falsely claim that Raila is a communist and tribalist. This is pure nonesense!

This perception by the international community and diplomats on their part was an ERRONEOUS one. And, after realising the truth about Raila, they have changed their minds to conform with the truth that Raila is not a communist and is not a tribalist.

They now realize that Raila has been unfairly demonized and a lot of falsehoods about him have been passed off fraudulently as the "truth". They now recognize him for what he is: a statesman and a real leader.

Their perception of Kibaki has also changed, they no longer regard him so highly after they found out the truth about him: that he is a VERY FRAUDULENT CHARACTER - a Robert Mugabe type dinosaur

Kwale, Kimi R and all you panua mongrels who have this irrational and demented hatred of Raila, read this article by Koigi Wa Wamwere. You should be directing your hatred at Kibaki and NOT Raila Read and "enjoy"

Kibaki’s five cardinal sins and how history will judge him harshly

When leaders hoist themselves to the highest perch of power – the Presidency – they expose themselves to public scrutiny and judgement. When Kenyans fail to acknowledge their leaders’ failures, they do so at their own peril and pay dearly for the services those leaders fail to deliver.

What then will history say about President Kibaki? It will not say he was a great leader. It will say he had five cardinal failures.

Kibaki’s supporters have always denied his cardinal sin of cowardice but posterity will judge him most harshly for his recent criminal failure to protect thousands of Kenyans who were killed and displaced in the worst ethnic fighting in our history.

Kibaki is guilty because Government intelligence services informed him of who was planning war, where and against who but did nothing to protect innocent Kenyans who ended up dead or displaced. For his omission, he is as guilty of war as its perpetrators.

Kibaki’s second cardinal sin is that throughout his life, he has never fought for the freedom he has never hesitated to enjoy. Indeed, posterity will remember him most for equating fighting dictatorship with the madness of felling a fig tree with a razor blade.

But fighting for freedom means sacrificing and Kibaki has never sacrificed for any cause, person or even self. Despite his lack of gratitude, others have always sacrificed for him.

Kibaki’s third cardinal sin is his failure to acknowledge, thank and compensate freedom fighters or even those who have fought and sacrificed for him. Like one who has never heard that when a cow suffers injury in the pastures, it drags itself home for assistance, when freedom fighters and their families turn to him for acknowledgement and support, he looks the other way.

Without being taken to court, Kibaki’s government has refused to acknowledge, thank, compensate and apologise to freedom fighters for all the pain and ruin they suffered with their families.

By failing to compensate freedom fighters, Kibaki’s fourth cardinal sin has been perpetuation of past injustices like corruption and ruin of freedom fighters. Mau Mau freedom fighters who lost land remain landless.

Fighters for second liberation who lost their jobs and incomes remain destitute, hungry and sick. The State will pay them neither compensation nor pensions. Even their children lack employment because their parents could not educate them from graves or prisons.

The fifth cardinal sin of Kibaki comes to mind when you read about Italy’s recent paying Libya $5 billion for colonialism or Germany’s earlier compensation to Jews for holocaust.

Unlike Gaddafi, Kibaki has failed to stand up to Britain for Kenya and demand both apology and compensation for colonialism, Mau Mau brutalities and wars of colonial conquest. Instead, like Kenyatta and Moi before him, Kibaki bows to Britain (- ana lamba lamba matako yao) as if by colonising and robbing us, she did us a favour.

But many Kenyans share Kibaki’s guilt. We (this "we" refers to all you panua mongrels) supported and voted for his presidency, despite our clear knowledge of his weaknesses (remember you panua mongrels have always called him GENERAL KIGUOYA/GENERAL COWARD for as long as I can remember). Kenya must never fail with another leader the way it failed with Kibaki and Moi.

Kwale,
your naked flame of hatred for one man whom you've never met or know anything about nullifies all the positive things you have to say about anyone, especially Kibaki who has never required your e-defence of his personality or his well known achievements-you give your man a bad name and then wonder why he receives hostile press?
you, like most everyone else in this blog, should be careful not to loose your objectivity and clear sense of thinking when it comes to rationally stating facts about people, especially our politicians for whom any ride on our backs is only worth the pleasure of the pain we feel
what is your man doing for the country lately?and how has that reduced fuel prices or made 'mboga' more affordable?

Good call for Raila and it is about time kibaki called on all his tribesmen to stop committing incest or else cut of their dicks!! don't you agree?? incest in central province is producing too many disabled children... can't kikuyu's ever learn that fathers should not sleep with daughters...and sons with mothers!!
Kibaki should go back to othaya and live by example.... stop the Incest....... filthy habits of kikuyu's

Msema Ukweli, I can almost hear your deep voice reverberating in my ears.

Who told you the international community have changed their mind regarding Mr. Odinga? If there is somebody who is well-informed as far as international news are concerned, it's me. You can bet on that one!

Unlike Morgan Tsangarai, they see Raila as a villain who widely blamed for ethnic violence that erupted after the disputed polls. Why? Because he failed to appeal to his supporters to stop the killings. I have a video of him being interviwed and slammed by UK channel 4 news about the violence.
When questioned by the reporter, he downplayed the violence comparing it with football rivarly.

And on your "Raila is a statesman and a real leader", Can a leopard change its spot? Surely raila cannot change Fidel Castro doctrines!
I put my money on his daughter becoming the president of Kenya, she stand a better chance than him.

If you don't appreciate or like what Kibaki has done to the country, why don't pack-up your arse and go somewhere else? There are more than 200 countries you can migrant to and are free of Kifucky.

@e-cop,

Like I said before, I don't bullshit and I don't like to tickle anyone ears, I write facts! If there were no contentious issues here to discuss, I wouldn't be blogging here but as long as you continue to worship Raila, I will continue to express my views on him.
All ODMers sucks!!!

Kalamari,

You said

'While world leaders wine and dine for the benefit of their countries, Kibaki is sitting on a stool under a mango tree in the State House back yard.'

The first part of your sentence is a contradiction of some kind, i mean, 'wine and dine', for whose benefit? You seem to condone extravagance as practiced by some of our leaders. According to Kibaki, we should not waste our scarce resources on some foreign ego trips.

Again, from where i come from, major decisions affecting our community were made from under some tree. The empasis here is that the solutions to our problems are 'local'. You do not need to get out there to be seen to be a 'leader'.

Kwale, Sniff Petrol could sue you, so please watch out.

How can they even feel proud to be associated to third-rate columnists like you?

Give us another one.

Kwale,

You are beyond help. You are another "Lucy Kibaki case" - mad beyond repair. You should consider checking into Mathare Mental Hospital, they seriously "need" clowns like you over there for both psychological and psychiatric treatment.

Kwale said...

If people didn't die after the disputed polls, I wouldn't dislike Raila the way I do. And that's irrespective if they died in the hands of civilians (militias groups) or the security services.

You just don't call your fellow citizens 'adui' period! That will go down in history as the biggest cock-up in his political career. Awfully naffy!!! sucks!!

maybe you should try railaodingajesus.me.ke
