I find every argument by Miguna against Raila morally disturbing especially on his pet subject of election & politics.
First; somebody remind Miguna that politics goes beyond mere theory and if my memory serves me right, first time he attempted his hands on the political plough in 2007 he harvested a paltry 10 votes in Nyando constituency despite his closeness to Raila which was to give him an extra advantage–meaning he sold his bad goods in the wrong market probably because he is the worst listener north of limpopo.
This dismal performance obviously denies him the luxury of advancing any lecture on ballot box victory especially to a seasoned battle general like Raila (I’m not saying Raila should be impervious to new ideas).
Secondly; his animated arguments normally a toxic mix of hoopla, bitterness & fallacies enveloped as a cure-all drug to a political ailment is but a continual tendency to give a dog a bad name.Have you ever stopped to ask; how did Miguna’s exploits as a public officer in the rank of a PS benefit the locals of Nyando constituency or his apondo village? & 2. Did he ever leave Raila better than he met him? Personally I’ve always viewed Miguna as a political VANDAL on a self promotional assignment .
Thirdly; he should thank Raila Odinga’s uncommon wisdom & unequaled tolerance which saw him swallow Miguna’s too many excess that has made Uhuru refuse to employ Miguna even just as a mere special adviser to the special advisers like Kutuny.
