My attention has been drawn to the good news appearing in www.Kenya-Today.Com that Uhuru and Ruto have finally been forced to drop out of the race by State House (https://www.kenya-today.com/news/uhuru-kenyatta-tna-jubilee-alliance-cord).
The Jubilee Alliance to be lead by Hon. Mudavadi and Hon. Pogishio marketed as â€MudaPogzâ€ ticket is a culmination of our fight to rid the race of bad apples. With Uhuru and Ruto finally forced to surrender out of the race by State House, I wish State House listens to people this much, Kenya could go forward….miles and miles forward….so in April, we avoid sanctions from our leading economic partners.
Uhuru and Ruto can focus to win their cases at the ICC in The Hague, and with more time in their hands, they shall definitely win like Kosgey took time off campaign trail and won. When they shout their heads out, it gives the defense a chance to study their body languages, and thought processes, and in court it becomes easy to make them say stupid things like â€œthis or that can only happen in a movieâ€. Statements that canâ€™t help you secure an acquittal.
We in Diaspora send millions of dollars to cater for our millions of jobless loved ones, economic sanctions in case Uhuru wins would just burden us more, demanding that we send more money to Kenya. Unfortunately when the amount of money sent from Diaspora to Kenya increases, the stupid government celebrates, whereas thatâ€™s a measure of a nationâ€™s citizenry becoming more dependent on hand outs.
Itâ€™s a measure of growing poverty and joblessness when Diaspora remittances grow, because Diaspora sends money to cater for peopleâ€™s needs. The more relatives ask for cash, the more Diaspora sends. I see it as a symptom that would have gotten worse with sanctions.
With Muvadi- Poghishio effectively as the puppet ticket, the next battle is to make sure that potential convicted felons facing crimes involving “circumcision of innocent men without anesthesia” do not control 33% + 33% of government appointments.
We are aware of plans to establish an Uhuru-led Jubilee Coalition council, with Ruto as his deputy, but which will be approving all coalition appointees, before going to the president for approval, something like the Narc Summit, but with more powers- a politburo.
Musalia does not have to consult them. He should eat the entire loaf himself. I hope itâ€™s their proxies who signed those agreements; because, we are going to court to ensure that coalition agreement signatories and principals are clean people of integrity. Lambs without blemish.
Uhuru and Ruto will come out of that agreement with nothing because once Mudavadi wins, ODM which is friendlier to him will hold night talks with him and form a cordon around Musalia to protect him from these opportunist elements, and then CORD shall all be in government.
And then the fallacious opportunists like Uhuru shall all be sidelined and betrayed in the new Jubilee government.
Then to rub the salt into the wounds, CORD shall in combination with UDF, which with Musalia as president will so bad hate the Jubilee coalition 33, 33, 33, agreement will move a motion to ban all the political party agreements. Infact it adds up to 99%, and the first thing he will do is to take the extra 1% unto himself. The first fight would be over the 1% unaccounted for. Â That is how the UhuRuto dream would be begin to fall apart. A journey to betrayal will have begun in earnest.
And then like Raila ran chasing Kibaki over the MoU, so shall Uhuruto do. But Uhuruto shall have so much in their hands defending themselves at The Hague. Then CORD shall munch the Musalia loaf part meant for them. Â Itâ€™s a jungle and thatâ€™s how it rolls out there. With â€œMudaPogzâ€ ticket, itâ€™s a win-win for us.
Poghishio on the other hand betrayed Kalonzo after being given a powerful ministry belonging to Wiper, yet he betrayed Kalonzo. So his profile speaks for itself, he will throw Ruto under the bus once he sits on the VP chair. With MudaPogz, Uhuruto goose is cooked.
Itâ€™s never about who Mudavadi will be, but whose Mudavadi he shall be. CORD will make him their Mudavadi, because its obvious coalition partners are always suspicious of each other, and CORD shall exploit those suspicions. Uhuru and Ruto will be betrayed big time, with CORDâ€™s help. Good day.
