Those of you tagging and inboxing me Hon Jim Bonnie’s issue, here is my opinion. If at all its true that he is now a Jubilee/Government paid blogger.
Jim Bonnie is an astute, assertive, and hard-hitting blogger; the kind every politician would want in his camp.
His charm and presence is enviable. It is admirable.
With his talent and education, the man has been jobless, long after his graduation. He has lent his services to CORD- pro bono. He has fought many battles and warded off dozens of attacks. He was truly a valuable, but not indispensable, asset to us as the CORD family.
But he is now receiving instructions to turn his blades against former compatriots and revolutionaries. The jubilee people came with sack loads of cash, and other goodies.
Look here, peeps. Those who are attacking, condemning and vilifying Hon Jim Bonnie should do it with a tinge of understanding: it is not easy staying unemployed. Some of you hurl epithets at the man though you are assured of a six- to seven-figure monthly pay check. Mahatma Gandhi said that you should never judge a man unless you have walked a mile in his shoes.
However, Jim Bonnie should also be aware of the ramifications of his actions…
You see, we are on the cusp of something momentous. Something with the potential to change the trajectory of our nation. And Jim Bonnie’s service was composite of the crankshaft of that thing. To at the penultimate moment betray the cause is really sad- and it amounts to betrayal.
Besides, the man might on impulse doomed his political future. Nobody trusts a man with a price tag on his back. The message is home that you are ideologically unmoored, and your services are at the behest of the highest bidder. That is not a very good reputation.
Should jubilee discard the man, he will have nowhere to go to…
The stupidest thing a man can ever do is to fray the breasts that he suckled.
