The oracles of the hills have spoken; they have send their only messenger of the hills with one message to the Chupiless government. The message is short and clear: Jubilee will lose the fight with teachers terribly.
The gods have told me to tell Jubilee that a man who finds himself in a hole must immediately cease digging if he still hopes to come out alive.
What is happening is that Jubilee is already limping from the Western Sugar fiasco which is making it lose grip of Western two years to election. Comrade Amolo Odinga has not been kind and has moved in with speed to rub salt in the fresh wound through his popular sugar rallies.
The gods also remind me to tell Jubilee that it is foolish for a man who is crossing the river on a makeshift log to insult Crocodile before he crosses the river!
The 2017 river-crossing is real. For Jubilee to continue to antagonize the 280,000 strong members of the teaching fraternity is indeed foolish to say the least. Achebe tells us that he who knows not that he knows not must definately be a fool!
The Uhuruto pair has already lost the confidence of all Kenyan teachers who have sworn to punish them in 2017 en masse with little regard for where they come from.
The writing is on the wall. The gods have washed their hands. As Ola Rotimi puts it, the gods are not to blame in Jubilee’s predicament. This is a self-made problem which exposes a government which the left hand does not know what the right arm is holding.
