Round one win at all cost was all a part of multi-pronged strategy of Jubilee Alliance think tank, starting with tyranny of Numbers to compromised Electoral process and eventually to a run off with multiple targets which includes and not limited to:
- Demystify issues of foreign relations and recognition of ICC suspect
- Water-down ICC cases by intimidating and buying out witnesses as was reported by the ICC Prosecutor
- To bring back to the fold sponsored dummy Presidential candidates without much suspicion
- Make Jubilee team bear national face and not a two tribe affair hence inclusion of Balala, Ngilu, Musalia, Magara et el.
- Bring the business community and trade unions on board with promises of adopting their master plans, on target are the private sector, COTU, KNUT et el
- maximize status of a President-elect and come into run-off wielding state machinery against a terrified opposition.
- Intimidate the Cord team as evidenced in the case of Muthama and Police dispersing peaceful CORD supporters outside the supreme court on Saturday et el
- Put a total mistrust on opinion polls and blind the public forever
- Compromise Media and continue to put alternative views to the cold and the public in the dark, this includes dominating social media against the disorganized CORD online volunteers. Every person in possession of a cheap GPRS enabled phone has access to the rumours and facts first hand anywhere inside and outside the country. Information censorship is barely possible given the current regulations and technology evolution hence a jubilee social media propaganda machine is the best way to dominate and influence national debate.
- Subject the Judiciary to ridicule by digging into the past and associates of the perceived pro democracy supreme judges- this is already underway as can be evidenced by the posts of Jubilee lead propagandists on social media.
- Set Kenya on a long path of Ethnic Tyranny in the name of Democracy
- Prove to the world that our Justice/Courts Systems are working with the aimÂ of bringing back the ICC cases back home
- Provoke Cord team to call for Mass Action and breach the Peace, them fuel it and easily blame Odinga for theÂ 2007/08 post election violence and immediately call the ICC to investigate CORD top leadership
All this have been thrown into disarray, Cord’s Strategic Think Tank is focused on filling a petition at the Supreme Court over the last 7days.
The Petition in the Supreme Court against the Presidential Election Results will be the only greatest achievement the CORD team will be remembered for at the end of all this drama.
It will be a landmark feat but not their primary interest of acquiring political power, the people of Kenya will emerge victorious having proclaimed their hard won democracy which now is under the worst threat of death since the Nyayo era!.
