Regional leaders kept off former first lady mama Kibaki’s funeral in Othaya Nyeri today.
Trust the idle media to needlessly go overdrive with non-issues.
The Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga already paid his last respects to Mama Lucy at Consolata Church in Nairobi where the Jubilee government attempted to humiliate him through nonsensical protocol.
Raila was Kibaki’s co-principal for five years, no one can change that. Jubilee swept that fact under the carpet and upset a lot of people including the mourning family.
1. Can the observant media post ex President Moi’s empty seat? They worked longer with Kibaki.
2. Can the observant media also post Museveni empty seat? He was after all a family friend to the Kibaki.
3. What about Sudan ‘s ICC fugitive Al-Bashir, was he not guest of honour when constitution was being promulgated in August 2010? Is he around Othaya.
Meanwhile Kiplangat Abraham Mutai and other paid #36Bloggers are making noise about Raila Odinga decision to skip Lucy Kibaki burial. The same people clapped when Raila Odinga was humiliated by the president and his deputy during the requiem mass for the former first lady.
A protocol officer refused to acknowledge the presence of Raila Odinga. He refused to even utter his name.
