Dear Raila Odinga,
I’m acutely aware of the hatred some of us have accumulated over time allegedly for ALWAYS talking about you.The problem is these our accusers have never told us who else other than yourself we should ALWAYS be talking about yet you’ve ALWAYS been the only leader we’ve ALWAYS had.But that’s besides the point sir.
My attention has been drawn by some silly remarks attributed to the man you single handedly appointed as our beloved party’s Chairman. Jakom,I hear this man you appointed as our Chairman, and who has since become so power drunk and insensible,has said that those of us who have been questioning and challenging a lot of the bad things that have been happening in our beloved party and crippling our troublesome efforts to take over power(or those of us who’ve not been very loyal to you according to the Chairman’s and others of his ilk’s understanding)and our supporters,will not be allowed to contest for any party seat at any level anywhere.
In other words,your Chairman has inadvertently expelled us from the party.I know they will tell you that we are just a handful of disgruntled noises makers and rent-seeking Jubilee moles intent on creating divisions among our people.They will be lying to you sir.We are more than just many!They’ll ask you to ignore us and ask us to take a walk and form our own party,but that’s a proposal we already rejected.We intend to remain inside and fight these mongrels from within!
Jakom,my worry is not even the fact that the constitution demands a 50% + 1 votes of the total votes cast for one to become the president,but rather the fact that I had planned to contest for the post of the party’s Siaya County branch Secretary General-purposely to help in streamlining the party,hacking it off the firm grip of those ludicrous self seekers around you who are always using your brand only to advance their own personal goals at the expense of our collective dreams,and taking it back to the people,and also infusing into it some youthful energy and fresh ideas that I feel are sorely lacking in the party.Your Chairman has simply shattered these well meaning dreams sir.
I would want to believe that your drunk Chairman made these reckless declarations without your knowledge and/consent,otherwise it’s probably high time you came out clearly and explained to us whether it is power and emancipation you really want for your people,or loyalty from your people!If it’s power and emancipation for the people you want,count us in.
Equally,if it’s loyalty you want from us,count me in.For loyalty,kindly just retire to the Opoda Farm and you’ll have in me the most loyal servant who’ll crisscross your strongholds mobilizing your followers to be coming to pay you pilgrimage at Opoda Farm every weekend,or even thrice per week if you wish.
As true and honest believers in your former ideals,we’ve since realized that for any progress to be realized,we MUST act really rough and tough on your self-seeking sycophants.
Thank you sir,
Youth Winger and Secretary General of the “moles”.
