By Ken Arek<< via Facebook Mr President- Museveni, WHO is THE 'JIGGER'? is it the people's president and CORD leader Raila Odinga or his co-principals K Musyoka and Wetangula? President Yoweri Museveni is a former military dictator now claiming to be a reformed Democrat, today shocked everyone! I have never taken his remarks lightly especially today's advice to Uhuru Kenyatta. Remember this the person who came to Kenya to insult ICC while pledging to cooperate with the same Court to try the LRA commanders. This following closely after Uhuru's recent 'WAJINGA' outburst in Machakos. Rekindles one of his speech in Nyeri "...manafikiria watanisumbua vile walisumbua Mzee Kibaki...hapana..." all this combined by his known temper, He once banged the table with such remarks.".... one person cannot disturb everyone else..." Back to M7; While speaking at Madaraka day celebrations,he made a chilling anology that “when you feel a jigger in your foot,you carefully take a needle and remove it keenly and intelligently without interfering with the entire leg”.
Being a dangerous dictator in Africa,he has succeeded to thwart democratic change in Uganda and shrinking freedom space in that country. Many opposition operatives have disappeared mysteriously without being accounted for.
Could his chilling advice to remove “jiggers from his foot” referring to eliminating opposition figures who have been the face of opposition to Uhuru’s administration?.
What is your understanding of this?
Here is George Nyongesa’s understanding>>>
#â€ŽYoweriKagutaMuseveniâ€¬ should keep off Kenyan politics! We don’t need his savage, primitive and barbaric advice on how to run our public affairs or even how to deal with Opposition leadership. In Uganda, he pepper sprays, tear-gasses, beats up and jails Opposition leaders.
What was that advice of ‘Removing jiggers’? This is a well known encrypted military jargon for elimination. Is he advising ruling coalition to eliminate the ‘People’s President’ as a way of quelling opposition?
In my opinion any patriotic Kenyans must have found President Museveni’s speech on national television today very chilling advice to President Uhuru who is facing overwhelming Opposition and a possible ‘Buhari effect’.
Kenya’s political establishment from Independence time has a dubious history of eliminating political competitors in ‘unclear circumstances’ and therefore, such reckless talk from Museveni, someone with no democratic, human rights and justice credentials must be met with deserving protests from patriotic Kenyans.
