Jubileeâ€™s self imposed presidential Candidate Uhuru Kenyatta who last week expelled his competitor Musalia Mudavadi in a 1970s dictatorial KANU style to eliminate competition from Jubilee sounded insane and in denial when he claimed Cord is a Western Puppet.
It sounded ironic and sarcastic. Everybody knows that Cordâ€™s founders have an excellent track record of non-aligned foreign policy credentials. Uhuru used Obamaâ€™s campaign statement â€œlike day and nightâ€ without citing, Obama is the leader of the West, but Uhuru in a single speech imitates Obamaâ€™s words, while still railing at Cord as Pro-West.
This is intellectual inconsistency. It is double standards. He demonstrates a lack of principle. Portrays confusion and flip-flopping, in the same speech. His is an ideological mongrel. His ideology is like a serpent whose head is that of a goat, the tail of a snake pitted against an ideologically pure and sound CORD movement. Jubilee is so scary.
However, what Cord leaders have never engaged in is to make (Assad, Ahmadinejaad, Ghadaffi, Kim Jong-Il or Bashir) like anti-West statements whose end result would be to stoke embers of regional disharmony and tensions read international and diplomatic isolation while driving UNEP out of GIGIRI.
Kenyans- millions of them- unlike Uhuru Kenyatta have endured days upon days of joblessness, hunger, potholed roads, jiggers, lack of school fees- let me just call it grinding poverty. Uhuru has been living in plenty and bounty, and attended prestigious schools like St Maryâ€™s School, not the one besides Yala River- but the one in Nairobi that rich kids like Gideon Moi and the wazungu expatriates attend. So nobody has been indoctrinated in Western Mannerisms like Uhuru Kenyatta. That is point number one.
Next is that Uhuru Kenyattaâ€™s intellectual troubles makes him only comfortable in speech delivery only when he is reading speeches. Once in a while he displays his riches by reading from a teleprompter because he is afraid that he might get a mind block in the middle of his speech.
Well he has no dementia or Alzeimers, and so it has to be intellectual deficit. This is sad because allot of wealth went into educating Uhuru Kenyatta.
I have also previously elaborated how Uhuru Kenyatta is a copycat of the West. It is manifestly evident that Uhuruâ€˜s TNA launch copycatted the Romney Republican National Convention. It couldnâ€™t match Obamaâ€™s due to budget constraints, but they tried- with disastrous boomerang results -to copycat an American Republican National Convention.
Uhuru is rich but he has his limits, because he has to ask Mummy for permission for those high budgets- hints: he had to be accompanied to go and close the deal at Rutoâ€™s houseâ€¦.so when you hear Mummy is involved its magunia mingi involved, Ok.
During the TNA launch, he tried to speak from a teleprompter but it was obvious that he was reading. Of course his intention was to attempt to hoodwink Kenyans that he is so smart, and can speak without reading from a paper.
And it worked to some extent because in August while on a flight to Dubai I sat next to this TNA supporter who is a houseboy in one of the Sheikhâ€™s households, who told me that Uhuru is like Obama, he delivers speeches without reading, just like Obama does.
Uhuru succeeded in hoodwinking some dudes like that fanatic from one of the TNA strongholds that the party is having trouble expanding beyond.
The truth is that Uhuruâ€™s speeches without Teleprompters are horrible; the crowd at Tononoka was dozing in an open field, while the Cord crowds were jubilant at Uhuru Park. Take home is Uhuru is the foremost copycat of the west from the colognes he wears to the weird accent he attempts to speak to the schools he attended.
To add insult to violation of intellectual property rights, Uhuru read a speech which was massively plagiarized from various Obama speeches, including the Thomas Jefferson authored Unilateral Declaration of Independence, but without citing his sources. This is sheer intellectual dishonesty, or just lazy to cross check a pre written speech, a standard that is expected of a leader of Mr. Kenyatta stature.
Now for those of you who might not know, the document that Uhuru alisanya ideas from without citing his source- Unilateral Declaration of Independence authored by Thomas Jefferson is like the equivalent of an American â€œloyalty pledgeâ€.
It is the principle, foundation and primary source upon which the US Constitution was drafted and Americans live and operate around those principles, it even shapes the American foreign policy that UK weeps about.
This is testament that Uhuru is an indoctrinated, raised and brainwashed Western educated ideologue who is only yapping anti-WestÂ rhetoric because he thinks they are the cause of his case at The Hague, which is about ridding Kenya of years of impunity.
For decades genocide has occurred in Africa and the rich and powerful evaded responsibility. ICC is about making sure that people like Uhuru, Bashir, Mugabe, Kony, Ghadaffi, Gbagbo have to ultimately take responsibility for their actions.
Third, Peponi School which is associated with his family does not advance Chinese systems of education but the Western style of Education. He is therefore part of a business which is preparing the next generation of Western Educated graduates from elite families, who can speak the Queenâ€™s English without an accent, while misleading the poor masses about how pro-West Cord is. Itâ€™s the highest form of sheer hypocrisy.
His lawyers in the ICC are British, and recently, to confront and neutralize free speech he enlisted the services of a UK policy insider. It was reported that â€œMr Kenyatta has appointed Ed Straite, a former adviser to Britainâ€™s Chancellor of the Exchequer (Finance minister) George Osbourne to boost his public image in the wake of concerns that he should not be running for Kenyaâ€™s highest officeâ€.

He continues to keep larger tracts of land- actually larger than that owned by The Lord Delamere and otherÂ Biritish Imperialists of the pre-colonial era , anyone tell me -What is more imperial than owning land the size of Maine, Vermont and the British Island of England combined?
â€œDo as I say, not as I doâ€ is the mantra Uhuru subscribes to. He promises Coasterians that he will deal with land issues when he is the embodiment of land injustices in Kenya. He can give up his inheritance; he is over 18, if at all he is a moral man. But any land greed, however historical, is his greed, so long as he holds onto greedily acquired land.
I am reliably told that Margret, Uhuruâ€™s wife is of Germany descent- her mother is Germany and Kikuyu father; now for Uhuru or his surrogates to say that CORD leaders are Puppets of the West is ironic at best. Uhuruâ€™s half brother Magana is half British; Uhuruâ€™s investment in Western countries is into billions- so who is more likely to be a puppet of the West?
Next time I will rebut his claims that this is an analog vs digital election. I will reiterate my earlier lecture article that 2013 election is about progression versus retrogression. 2013 is about taking Kenya the North Korea way versus the South Korea way. The Singapore way versus the Zimbabwe way. Kenya has a date for going digital that is set and decided by the international community. The Raila-Kalonzo axis already ordered that to happen, but Jubileeâ€™s Poghishio- the Information and Communication Secretary hasnâ€™t implemented because he is still in love with analog age.
So who is DIGITAL, the one who stopped its implementation or the PM and the VP who ordered it implemented?
