History is prone to repeat itself with regard to Kenya stewing in her own blood come 2012 elections. Exactly 20 years ago Moi prophetically warned about the perils of multi-party politics. Fast forward to 2012 and the game remains the same except the players are donning jerseys in different colour - the foot is in the other boot. The world would be IRRESPONSIBLE to let Kenya go to the dogs. And we have been warned that indicting Ocampo6 is an open invitation to chaos.
The SHATTERED diplomacy was not an exercise in futility but a chance to remind the world that Kenya has her owners. The truth is that you only risk arresting LEADING PRESIDENTIAL candidates at the peril of the remaining 40 million Kenyans. Kibki is no political fool to risk his legacy by shooting himself in both feet.
Make no mistake, defending the Ocampo6 is a national project, MTA DO? Uhuru and Muthaura cannot be left to their own devices when their only crime was to do what they had to do given the near-Armageddon in 2007/8. As for Ruto, it is REALPOLITIK and expediency both rolled in one, period.
At the risk of distorting our national history, the gand of Ocampo6 may as well be compared to the Kapenguria six in their fight for independence. The later delivered and the former have the potential to deliver us from APOCALYPSE if Kibaki saves them from the noose of vindictive ICC.
Naysayers will cheaply equate the cost of shuttle diplomacy to dancing on the graves of PEV victims. Far from it, brother Kalonzo has selflessly devoted his energy and time to help Kenyans reclaim their country back. The born-again VP has put at stake his moral compass, dignity, self-respect, honour and pride on the national chopping block. What is more, no price is bigger than patriotism and sovereignty.
While saving the Ocampo6 will definitely guarantee peace for the IDPs in their camps, carting the suspects to The Hague is a sure recipe for another bloodbath. Well, the choice for a lesser evil must be natural. President Kibaki is never known to protect anybody from prosecution but since he is neck deep into saving the Ocampo6 we must accord him the benefit of doubt for he surely knows alot that we don't.
Kenya needs no babysitting given our selfless and competent leaders. Post-election violence was our own making and we are better placed to solve all its problems by ourselves. The Americans and Britons are better advised to keep off and so do the loud-mouthed so-called international community.
No amount of judicial posturing can solve the plethora of our domestic problems. Truth is our problems are political which demand political solutions. We have the political will and leadership to steer MV Kenya out of the present and future doldrums. With Gaddafi and Mubarak as our trusted allies who wants neo-colonialists?
The ICC is poised to shape 2012 polls. It is true that while Uhuru and Ruto may miss 2012 polls, the 1300 victims of PEV will definitely miss 2012 polls. Similarly while the next president is not known, what is known is who the 4th PORK will NOT BE. That is HARD BALL politics 100. Meanwhile the Rift Valley (and Central) remain the focal point and hotbed of Kenya's politics.
