The UhuRuto pair is known to be the most retrogressive pair in Kenyaâ€™s history. This is in addition to the well known risk of sanctions that their presidencies represent. They recently ignorantly mentioned about digital vs analogue, as being an issue in this election.
As you can all remember Uhuru Kenyatta was a water melon, while William Ruto was red carding the new constitution. They wanted things of old. They wanted the 1960s constitution to continue being our guiding constitution.Â To them, the older constitution developed by the colonialists and their collaborators was better than the present constitution which is billed as one of the most progressive in the world.
Infact Uhuru mulled being Red until Kibaki inner circle threatened him with dire consequences, if he chose the path of embarrassing the president.Â None of the Jubilee top brass is progressive, not the Octogenarians like Sam Ongeri,Yusuf Haji, Chirau Makwere,Francis Ole Kaparo et el.
When UhuRuto ignorantly pokes their noses into a worthless debate about â€œdigitalâ€ vs â€œanalogueâ€, they are only exposing their ignorance. They sound like â€œcerelac babies in poopy diapersâ€ because by citing age, they with ignorance just endorsed Kingwa Kamenchu. Only Kingwa Kamenchu can claim membership in the generation Y. So is Kingwa Kamenchu the most qualified in the race to Stahouse? Uhuru is old already in his 50s.
Any student of moral philosophy knows that not a single Aristotelian Teleological reasoning can justify age as part of a moral argument about the effectiveness of a leader. Aristotle will tell Ruto, even back in the days that itâ€™s not about shape of the gourd but the Mursik in the gourd. That is why our leader ought to attend several hours of liberal arts classes, area of specialization notwithstanding.
Uhuru the Amherst grad doesnâ€™t seem to have paid attention to 1st year 2nd year lectures. In the moral hierarchical reasoning, ageism that Uhuruto wants to introduce is in the same league with racism, tribalism, rape, gender inequality, child abuse, sex abuse. Am not surprised though, for persons accused of crimes against humanity, its normal to engage in such retrogressive debate. Their behavior while in power, if it would ever happen is predictably despotic and immoral.
Uhuru himself was sired from Jomoâ€™s 72 year old groin through his third wife, Mama Ngina; does that make Uhuru a bastard? No! He can only be a bastard if he chooses to. His conception was like any other child. He was born a child and not an old man. Railonzo policy conceptions wonâ€™t be determined by age but by strategy and tact. Just like Kenyattaâ€™s child was a baby sired by man of any age, so will Railonzo ideas be timeless in their 50s and 60s. Their ideas are going to be about poor Kenyans not the Presidentâ€™s age.
Jubilee wants to divert our attention from pertinent issues in this election by yapping digital vs analog. Nope thatâ€™s not an issue in 2013. It is under the Railonzo watch- the Cord stewards that the Digital transition was ordered. A United Nations mandated body already unanimously approved that to happen. Kenya is treaty bound, and itâ€™s not a Jubilee government that would usher a digital era. This matter has been dispensed with adequately.
Digital was infact ordered by the West that Uhuru pretends to rail against. Itâ€™s the highest order of disingenuity for a man to cherry pick on what he wants to say against The West while embracing a Western suggestion under the fallacious misconception that it favors his ill-conceived thesis. Uhuru will soon, like Romney realize that itâ€™s not the ANTI-THESIS argument that wins an election itâ€™s an effective and well thought out COUNTER-THESIS proposition to the Kenyan people that will guarantee victory.
It is under Jubileeâ€™s Poghishioâ€™sÂ puppeteering that Uhuruto ensured that the digital transition is delayed for political expediency. Then you wonder who is analogue. And with sanctions, Kenyans wonâ€™t even afford a TV. Hollywood channels and movies wonâ€™t be available to even watch Blu-Ray movies. Uhuruto guarantees Kenyans Nigerian, Indian and Chinese movies in black and white TV sets. But in Uhuru and Rutoâ€™s households, they have powerful satellites, and they can watch all that crap!!!!
Infact in The Hague Jails that the 2 might rot in, they have free food and access to all channels they want, but they want to leave Kenyan households TV-less and food less.
Instead 2013 is about saving Kenya from a Kim Jong ll type of a despot who is being accused of the same crimes that await Bashar of Sudan and Al Assad of Syria for slaughtering his own people- Syrians. Itâ€™s about saving Kenya from a â€œsanctioned fugitive leader on the runâ€ who will subject Kenyans to Njeru Githae â€œrats for dinner delicaciesâ€.
Hitler -had he been arrested and charged would have been slapped with Crimes against Humanity charges like those facing Uhuru. Assad and Kim Jong II, like Uhuru Kenyatta were themselves dictators. They both have followed in their fatherâ€™s footsteps by becoming dictators. A pattern is evident here, that kids feed on their Dadâ€™s dictatorial habits.
Thatâ€™s why George Bush II went to Iraq to settle his fatherâ€™s scores or is it unfinished business. What we donâ€™t know is whether Kenyatta had unfinished business of grabbing land that Uhuru intends to accomplish. Uhuru might as well continue from where his Dad stopped because he was midstream of presiding over a regime under whose watch, JM Kariuki, Tom Mboya and Pio Gama Pinto were assassinated.
At least we know that Jaramogi had unfinished business of liberating this nation. It is in his footsteps that Kenyaâ€™s liberation movement adherents like George Nthenge, Martin Shikuku, Kenneth Matiba, Paul Muite flourished
The choice is yours as to whose footsteps you wonna follow in 2013. The land grabberâ€™s way with Kenyatta as their spiritual leader, or the aforementioned selfless leaderâ€™s way with Ngei, Jaramogi, Kaggia, JM Kariuki as their spiritual leaders. Kenyaâ€™s ideological leanings were determined during the first 10yrs of its inception.
I wonder what Uhuru has to say about the case against the British by the Mau Mau, because Kenyatta took land and funds meant for the Mau Mau veterans unto himself. They now have to in their 80s and 90s globetrot in pursuit of justice that though was partially compensated; they never got compensated by Kenyatta. Instead it was all embezzled. That is why Mungiki came into existence. Generations of MauMau veterans were disenfranchised.
