Friends, let me make something clear. We want power and we want it badly but we don’t want it for the sake of it. We don’t want feckless power. So if your business is just to remove Uhuru, and you don’t care who replaces him; then you are part of the problem.
If we learnt anything from NARC, it is that as we wanted power to transform Kenya, some people wanted it merely to remove Moi the person. They didn’t want to remove Moism.
Once they got power they re-entrenched a more callous strain of Moism without Moi.
I see this misguided argument that if we want to remove Uhuru, Raila shouldn’t be the CORD candidate.
That we better field a dog or a gheko or one of those Easy Coach buses and with Raila’s support any of the inanimates will beat Uhuru at 6.00am before voting starts.
That ooh, they have learnt to beat Raila (the proponents of this obnoxious theory always never tell us how they learnt it, where they learnt it and how it has succeeded) so we shouldn’t field Raila. Pure balderdash!
We don’t want to remove Uhuru; we want to remove Uhuruism, which is a more sophisticated version of Moism.
My political reading of Raila Odinga is that he has no problem with Uhuru the person. They only depart on points of governance and the exercise of power.
If they’ve learnt to beat Raila why has Raila beaten them in all the elections after 2013? If they’ve learnt to beat Raila won’t stops them from beating anyone Raila supports? See where this argument starts to limp?
Those falling to this propaganda only reveal how they are mentally given to accepting excuses not to do their best or hold dearly on their convictions.
To them we recommend a reading of Thomas Edison. And if they be men of Sunday school we recommend a read of Exodus 17:10-12.
The future belongs to those who ceaselessly chase it.
If Raila resigns to the fate that he can’t make it tomorrow they will say Alai can’t make it and point to Raila. “We told you Raila can’t make it and he didn’t. Believe us when we say Alai can’t make it”.
If Raila can’t make it what makes any of us think he/she can make it?
In Kenya we must reject this absurd notion that some people can’t be because some people says so. If this country belongs to all we must keep breaking these ceilings.
If Raila can’t make it in Kenya what makes you think you can?
