Supporters Â of CORD leader Raila Odinga openly disagreed with their party leader’s scorecard on the Jubilee Alliance government, saying he is too lenient on a government that has shown it has no idea on how to govern the country.
The Cord leader on a diaspora radio show had awarded the Jubilee Alliance what has been referred to as a ‘reluctant pass’ but his backers say he was being modest in his marksheet. To them, President Uhuru has performed unexpectedly dismal during the one year in office.
“PM is misleading the diaspora. He ought to have awarded the Jubilee Alliance a strong E if not a ‘Y’ or worse,” charged one supporter.
In Kenyan education system, an E is the least available grade to a poor performer. ‘Y’ is an irregularity meaning the candidate either cheated or colluded to gain ‘undue advantage’ over others.
Most Kenyans gave the Jubilee alliance less than 10% on performance, saying the government is full of ‘talk’ but no action.
“These people inherited a stable economy but now everything seem to have stalled for the mwananchi. The people who seem to gain massively are those high up in the bureaucracy,” added another.
On the online ODM affiliated Facebook page, CORD EFFECT, the Jubilee Alliance weighed down on many youths who said life under the ‘digital duo’ is becoming hard each day.
“The PM himself is cushioned from the daily hustles of his supporters, he only imagines how difficult things are but is conveniently shielded from the reality,” said one Andrea Mutinda, adding that ‘he only gets informed’.
During the show, Odinga who is on an academic vocation at the prestigious Boston University in Massachusetts, USA, urged his listeners to give Uhuru and Ruto “more time” before passing judgement.
“Having been inÂ government, I knowÂ it is not easy. We willÂ have to give themÂ more time to seeÂ what they can do,”Â lets judge them on aÂ longer timeÂ basis,” said Odinga.
But his supporters are reluctant to do so.
“These people did everything to be in government, including rigging the election, they should perform. They only seem to be doing well at the ICC, our party leader should not desist from spinning for the government,” an angry Tinga supporter charged.
