JUBILEE SHOULD JOIN OKOA KENYA INSTEAD OF PLAGIARISING IT’S CONTENTS AND CALLING IT FUNNY NAMES LIKE “BORESHA KATIBA”
Two events happened this week.
1. Mass migration of jubilee MPs, sympathizers and supporters politely called “a delegation” to the Assembly of State Parties at the Hague basically going to cheer and take selfies as the debate on rule 68 will be going on.
2. Political announcement by jubilee that it was initiating a parallel constitutional amendment movement dubbed “Boresha Katiba”.
The Boresha Katiba initiative came few days after Hon Raila Odinga invited president Kenyatta and his team to join Okoa Kenya initiative. We commend jubilee for finally seeing the light and heeding Raila Odinga’s call. It is however unacceptable, hypocritical and a blatant joke for jubilee to join Okoa Kenya through the back door. We have gone through their proposal and found nothing new. Everything has been lifted from Okoa Kenya amendment bill, word by word.
This is typical of jubilee administration and only those new to their style of politics would be shocked. They are masters of doublespeak who would spare no chance, even if it means being petty on matters as important as constitutional amendment, to capture media attention. This is the jubilee we know, a cocktail of petty liars, Economic saboteurs, enemies of progress and shameful propagandists who think of the next election instead of the next generation.
It is beyond doubt that Jubilee is dishonest with Kenyans. They waged fierce war against Okoa Kenya right from its inception, they mocked it in funerals, political prayer rallies, in press conferences, on TV debates and made the noble intention of Okoa Kenya appear like is was a political duel between them and opposition – which is unfortunate. Their intention was to defeat a people’s process. They were badly mistaken.
At last, they’ve come to terms with the fact that Okoa Kenya is unstoppable. To save themselves from embarrassment, they are making sinister moves through their Boresha Katiba PR mind game hoodwinking Kenyans that they have new proposals yet, they’ve plagiarized contents of Okoa Kenya in whole. We are in an open society and jubilee shouldn’t feel ashamed. They lied to their supporters, it is time to tell them the truth and announce publicly that Okoa Kenya is the way.
Okoa Kenya train has room for every Kenyan, Jubilee included. But they must stop playing mind games. They are either with Kenyans, or alone. There are benefits of being on the side of Kenyans. There are also consequences of going against Kenyans.
