Uhuruto: Kenya's Two-horse Race to Destruction
Peter Kenneth may have done his best to market his ideas as a presidential candidate. But deep down the MP for Gatanga is not naive to Kenyans penchant to go tribal at the ballot.
The presidential field has been trimmed to the predictable five populated by the BIG FIVE TRIBES - say a prayer for the small tribes. But it is the Uhuruto axis that has generated more political heat given what is at stake for the pair.
They are joined at the Dutch heap. The sword of damocles that is The Hague is hanging precarious above the duo's heads so much so that the only way is to rope in Kenyan voters and commit a political harakiri.
Damn the consequences. So far the respective ethic voters are playing along. The two are very smart politicians and they are not naive to reveal the true plot to their gullible supporters.
Self-preservation packaged in hollow sovereignty and patriotism has never been so cleverly articulated in shuttle diplomacy episode II.
Poor Kalonzo has been left holding both the dirty water and dead baby. He refused to see the bold writing in capital letters staring at him. Brother Stevo ended up wailing louder than the bereaved about the G7 Tower of Babel oblivious of the sting from its true owners.
PM Raila may soon curse what he wished for. The two horses may as well have bolted with Kenyan voters to The Hague.
We haven't seen anything yet. The next three months will Kenyan politics charged like neve3r before. The old tribal stereotypes will come flying left, right and centre. NA BADO
