While Raila is at work marketing Kenya, promoting good governance and doing his bit as an honourable citizen, the “legitimate” government led by Kenya’s own internationally sought after criminal suspect, continues to spend sleepless nights trying to find fault and how to humiliate The People’s President.
The latest is the withdrawal of The Rt Hon Odinga’s driver of 14 years!!!
They began by taking away his office! Then breaking into his properties! Then withdrawing his security detail! Then demanding his cars when no one mentioned Moi and Kibaki who took with them a large fleet of expensive vehicles! Then they tried to humiliate him at the airport! Then they blamed him for bribing mourners in Kisii to shun Uhuru! Then they blamed for bribing a large number of voters in Makueni – then they managed to get him evicted from Orange house!
For one good man, it’s not by coincidence that a catalogue of misfortune should follow him all the time!
All this while he was busy working since the so called president isn’t allowed in the west except to court in Holland, nor in the east following recent visa denials to Russia, China and the very far east, even the Pacific- Raila has been all over the place wooing investors and meeting his people from Australia to South Africa, Europe and America!
This is exactly how Ouko upset Moi leading to his ghastly end! Moi would tell you that Ouko burnt himself to death and then shot himself! And Kenyans tend to have a very short span remembering open, ear popping in-your-face events!
When you’ve driven Raila for 14 years- which is a huge privilege and honour, one is likely to resign from government and return to drive His Excellence for free!
Beside, there are thousands of us out here whose only limitation is how to fully control an armoured heavy jeep to be able to offer proper security for this great servant of the people! The thing is, training is readily be available! And I am the first volunteer!
If you are a true Kenyan citizen and of honest sound mind, knowing how far from the ‘dark ages’ Raila has brought us, one can with honour wash the feet of the honourable servant!
What worries me is the remorseless merciless open manner in which high ranking assassinations are carried out in Kenya! With this last action of withdrawind a driver who’d have with time become part of The Raila household family, seriously I start to worry for the safety of His Excellence Raila Amollo Odinga!
But don’t you sit there and worry, we will take on Mungiki, if we must!
Tomorrow I leave early to attend an emergency ‘cobra’ meeting of The Kenyan Government in Exile and hand over a petition to Bensouda!
