Kibaki’s Pain of Pleasing a Nation in Foul Mood
Kibaki only invites foul mood unto himself when he has to. And now all the Hague talk just makes the reknown economist go mad. But by going for FISH lunch in Bondo, the hitherto don is leading by example and from infront. The MPs and ministers will be left no choice but to either shape up or ship out. Well, your guess is as good as mine on their choice when it comes to what matters most to their pockets.
The Bondo lunch may just be the magic wand Kibaki needs to wave and abracadabra, NO HAGUE. You know fish is not only a nutritious source of white meat, but it has plenty of zinc that makes you wax academic leaving you oozing wisdom. LSE-educated Kibaki knows when to go back to the basics in re-inventing himself.
Image is everything and more so in politics. Kibaki’s laid back trademark has served him right through the years. Only airheads blame him for not frequently engaging the pair of flaps separating his chin from the nose. He knows when to talk and when he does, all and sundry stop to listen. Come Saturday evening and you will see change of heart where the whole cabinet will be singing in praise of Emilio’s infinite wisdom.
The Hague monster may be the prophetic crisis Kenya needed to unite against a common threat. And the time-tested President Kibaki is the person to help us comprehensively fight against that common enemy from beyond our borders. He has done on a wheelchair and will do it again to the chagrin of his detractors.
Delicious fish lunch
Kibaki must not be tied to nonentities. Those morons blaming him for not reprimanding Museveni over Migingo conveniently forget the fact that he has even left Mungiki and the vigilantes in his own backyard to sort their own bloody mess without his interference. His modus operandi amounts to dispensing blind justice that favours nobody including own blood relations.
The MPs may continue their juvenile rants by throwing out the Special Tribunal Bill oblivious of the high cost of auctioning our national sovereignty. The truth is that they are only increasing the decibels while their eyes remain singularly trained on upping their prices.
The MPs’ true beef is with Kibaki being stripped of immunity and authority to dish out clemency to the right people. Only Michuki and Wetangula seem to know better than the whole herd about true patriotism and sovereignty. We need a President with sharp teeth to bite when called upon.
Nobody understands Kenya better than Kibaki himself. He singularly drove us to our present location and only him can take us out of it. All else is pretense packaged in costly ignorance of the true owners of Kenya. Saturday's lunch of fish may mark the reset switch button.
