Doublespeak, hypocrisy and perjury are synonymous with the topmost leadership of the Jubilee administration. Laughable to hear them in unison attempt to tell ODM leadership to allow rebels to defraud those who voted them to leadership positions. We know the rebels are useful to them inside ODM rather than outside it.
Look at the two headlines pictured. Do you see any difference between these two news reports apart from the dates? One represent Uhuru’s warning to governors. A warning that was made veins bulging from the neck and mouth frothing, forcing Governors from TNA strongholds to quickly abandon pro-devolution campaigns.
But according to TNA party leader, he who read the riot act to Pesa Mashinani Jubilee governors, Raila Odinga, is dividing Kenyans when he asks ODM MPs to be loyal to those who voted for them. This is absolute crap and should be dismissed with contempt.
Then comes William Ruto who presides over URP with an iron fist, he whose thugs put Hon. Timon in ICU for supporting Pesa Mashinani, purporting to tell us that political differences does not mean enmity. That is hogwash too. Matter of fact URP has put in motion mechanism to expel dissenting voices from their party. And the dissent is just because they support increased devolved funds. They have not undermined Jubilee in parliament. Neither have they come to receive funds from CORD to drive anti-Jubilee campaigns, like some ODM are doing.
ODM has been very tolerant with its MPs. The do not attend meetings, make no financial contributions, boycott party functions and oppose resolutions and policies of the party. After more than one year of silence and patience, Raila Odinga tells them to choose between serving the government or serving the opposition, according to the law. Uhuruto say Raila is dividing the country. Jubilee should spare us their shameless hypocrisy.
But perhaps the biggest culprit here is Daily Nation, the Star, the Standard and other mainstream media who cannot call political leaders to account. Instead, they are all on choreographed mission to frustrate, undermine and misrepresent the opposition, mainly ODM. At the end of it, its the entire society that is willingly shagged, the years roll by, and generation after generation goes to waste as other parts of the world develop
