If you ever doubted who the real power and rulers of Kenya are look no further after hearing it straight from minister John Kimendero Michuki, He rattles reptiles and shot straight from the hip by assuring his Kangema constituents that hollow talk about power sharing is nothing but a fat fad.
Love him, hate him Michuki minces no words and he told everybody listening that Kibaki is in SINGULAR and TOTAL control of Kenya plc. The man is a genius in his perfectly timed and smart way to mark the third anniversary of the Standard raid that he delegated to the Artur brothers.
Before you shout yourself hoarse HUYU ANNAN NI NANI just reconcile your rage with the painful fact that Kenya has its owners who can raid a whole media house and gloat over it on camera. Michuki has reminded any Kenyan with an ear for the truth to ignore the hollow claims by detractors that Kibaki sharing any power with a Prime Minister.
And that is at it should be-TELL THE TRUTH. The good minister would have done us great favour to confirm that all the present charades about Special Tribunal, Interim Independent Electoral Commission, Constitution review and all other fads fashioned as reforms are smokescreens by the ruling elite to entertain us as they dig their heels into legal ownership of property Kenya.
Power sharing MY FOOT. That figment of fertile political imagination must be banished when you see the lords of impunity continue to run roughshod ridding on the back of starving Kenyans as they mine the next asset inside Kenya to auction to Libyans. And why not when their choir and apologists have oiled lips for hire to cheer them on?
Kenya is one country ruled by straight talkers like Michuki who frown at politico-speak. No need to constipate us with such empty epithets as the political will to exorcise ghosts of corruption. And if you insist in mouthing such lofty words you are welcome to join John Githongo in penning memoirs from the safety outside our poisoned borders.
Our sovereignty and plastic patriotism is beyond reproach. No wonder we earn invitation from none other ex-UN boss Annan for a cup of tea all the way in Geneva. Add that to exotic and priceless blueprints authored by none other than UN Special Rapporteur Philip Alston and you find a proud country whose owners will not blink at anything thrown at them to distract them from feathering their nests.
We haven’t seen the last of our TRUE POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC ENTREPRENEURS.
