"...if hypocrisy were a commodity that we could export and earn money from, then Kenya would today be richer than China and the Arab world put together."
The return into the country of the man whose second name is also his first is akin to a bad dream that has come back to haunt the Raila camp. Yep Miguna Miguna is back.
But let us be brutally honest, something the vast majority of Kenyans just don't like.
Democrat Miguna Miguna whose democratic eyes were opened by a sacking from the most democratic political party in democratic Kenya.
The truth is that if hypocrisy were a commodity that we could export and earn money from, then Kenya would today be richer than China and the Arab world put together.
Take this democracy thing as an example. Raila is known to be the leading democrat in the country. In fact he and his supporters are so democratic that they have openly told Miguna Miguna that he is no longer welcome to Luo Nyanza. And those who know the passionately democratic supporters of the PM will know that they are serious, so serious that Miguna would not be safe in Kibera today, let alone far off Luo Nyanza.
Miguna Miguna himself is a leading democrat. He is so democratic that he did not get the idea for Peeling Back The Mask until he was fired by the PM. That firing opened his democratic eyes.
Indeed Kenya is full of die hard democrats starting with the president himself who is so democratic that for the good of the country he could not bear to hand over the presidency to Raila and chose instead to democratically steal the election. President Kibaki's democratic credentials are further confirmed by the fact that no other president in the history of Kenya has introduced so many bills in parliament seeking to control the press. And no other president has raided a daily newspaper and disabled their presses. And don't forget the name of the party that Kibaki founded with the late Njenga Karume is DP (Democratic party of Kenya). In fact if it was up to some of the diehard Kikuyu supremacy democrats within the party the name of the party would have actually been Democratic party of Kenya Democracy.
Kenyans are so lucky because we have had a long string of democratic presidents right from Jomo Kenyatta who was so democratic that he never changed the law about having competing political parties but instead murdered those who even tried to think of doing such an undemocratic thing as starting an opposition party.
Did you know that the "T" in former President Daniel T arap Moi's name stands for tolerance of a true democrat. So tolerant was Baba Moi to those who had opposing views to his that all he did was to have their private parts squeezed by a pair of pliers in the infamous Nyayo torture chambers. He was a true tolerant democrat because unlike Kenyatta before him, he did not murder his opponents (take careful note of the fact that Robert Ouko was not Moi's political opponent).
The vast majority of Kenyan voters are so democratic that they will democratically vote for the most democratic tribe (the one they belong to) before they can begin to vote for any issues or even a member of the other undemocratic tribes.
Have a most democratic weekend will you.
