A little bird has whispered (allegations) to us that Johnson Sakaja only went to Philadelphia to avoid embarrassment for Jubilee which was snubbed due to a horrific human rights records. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch cite increased extrajudicial killings.
Sakaja/TNA wasn’t invited, and his mission in Philadelphia is unknown as the DNC is a highly secured invited guests only area. Sakaja tried to go, but was blocked. He tried to explain that he is a TNA chairman of Kenya courtesy of Uhuru Kenyatta and was in the US to hold talks with DNC chair but these people would hear none of that. They perused their blue book, but Sakaja was notified that only three people represented the Kenyan delegation, and his name didn’t match the 3. Sakaja coiled his tail and went to drink, which is how he is killing his time.
Rt Hon Raila has had a close relationship with the National Democratic institute dating back to the early 90s and has been invited to every convention since the days of Bill Clinton.
Hon Mudavadi and Hon Karua are attending courtesy of Raila. Raila was invited and received 3 tickets, which is how he went with Karua and maDvD.
MaDvD was a natural choice as they can finalize discussions on a few pending areas as they work towards rolling out a political deal which will once and for all pull the rug from under Jubilee’s feet.
I don’t know about Karua but baba and maDvD are staying in the same hotel. A major announcement that may shake the political landscape may come out of Philadelphia.
