…As scientific pollsters make adjustments
The presidential race is way too boring for me with all the Cord and Jubilee zombies waiting to do the predictable whilst totally deaf and blind to any new developments and without any brains to think and analyze anything new or old.
And so increasingly my attention is being drawn to the other interesting political battles shaping up all over the country. One such battle that is bound to go right up to the wire is the race for senator of the vast under-developed Makueni county. The main battle is between education minister Mutula Kilonzo and immediate former Kilome legislator John Harun Mwau.
My man on the ground reports a fascinating incident at Sultan Hamud just this afternoon. Harun Mwau arrived in a helicopter at the small town at about 2pm today only to receive a rude shock from the crowd who boldly told him that they were not interested in his money and would vote for Mutula Kilonzo instead. Sultan is right at the heart of Kilome constituency which Mwau has represented for the last 5 years and which should actually be one of his main strongholds as we head to the polls. One man at the meeting today grabbed the microphone and told the crowd that they needed to vote for somebody who was educated this time round and Mutula had a degree from the University of Dar-es-salaam. Mwau’s educational background is sketchy and unclear.
People in the crowd were heard saying that they had had enough of Mwau and his money. My source says that he is still recovering from the shock because this is an area that is poverty stricken and the electorate have always heavily relied on Harun Mwau’s generous handouts where individuals get as much as Kenya shillings 1,000 per person for proving that they are registered voters and intend to vote for him.
This is one very interesting battle that I will be following for you right up to the announcement of the election results. My prediction is that unless something major happens Mutula Kilonzo will win this one.
P.S. What has changed since two short weeks ago? Actually absolutely nothing. We still have the same mindless Zombies waiting to do what they decided they will do months ago and nothing will change them. Strangely, the weekly polls commissioned by Citizen TV now show that the gap has narrowed considerably between CORD and Jubilee and now the two are neck to neck with one pollster declaring a tie. Why? What has caused such a significant shift?
The obvious answer is that somebody somewhere has made adjustments to the methodology and approach of their polls in response to what critics (including this blogger) have been saying to come up with the kind of results that we are now seeing. In other words nothing has changed on the ground but major adjustments have been made by our scientific pollsters. They still do not reflect the reality as far as I am concerned and my ear to the ground and the tribal numbers still show that Jubilee and their zombies will win the first round easily. As I write this I am just waiting to hear the reasons the pollsters will give for the dramatic change. What a country what a gullible people!!!
