Borrowing Tried Hands of Trusted Neighbour
Some queer things can only happen in Kenya. Only here do you rattle a President and induce his foul mood on national TV leading him to declare how dear his wife is. But the same fellow has no time nor word of reassurance about a territorial dispute with an expansionist neighbour despite his oath of office.
Surely selective amnesia served generously in bowls of expediency is no big prize for a leader with no conscience. Only in Kenya do you find a President insulting the dead by collecting corpses for a state funeral 20 years after their demise while ignoring the bloodbath and massacre in his own backyard.
Only within our shores can afford the luxury of dictatorial OUTSOURCING leadership. Just ask Kenyan journalists who had to cross border to seek clarification in Kampala from a skilled master to whom we have successfully exported bigotry as we cheer him on.
Museveni is playing the cheap Kenyan politics better than our own scoundrels. If anything Kibaki owes him gratitude as the ONLY leader who promptly congratulated him for bastardizing our democracy.
Living lies must be our singular national forte. Look no further than octogenarian Ambassador Francis Muthaura who without batting an eye warns other PSs against leaning towards any of the coalition partners. I guess taking minutes and directives from PNU is the epitome of non-partisanship.
The fortress of denial is cracking and will surely come crashing down sooner rather than later. It is the same business-as-usual mentality oblivious of the changed circumstances that is steadily pushing Kenya to abyss. Meanwhile the gatekeepers continue with their maddening spree to strip Kenya of all her flesh and blood.
