JUBILEE’S WRONG STRATEGY
By Ndugu M Dehay
Something tells me that UhuruRuto may be Raila’s biggest campaigners for 2017. Arresting Raila or even attempting to arrest him is in other words confirming that he is right that the â‚¬bond money has been stolen. Let CS Rotich give the list of the projects that â‚¬bond financed.
My friends President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta and DP William Samoei Ruto, you have a country to run. Don’t get distracted. Kindly ignore Raila but if you two insist that you must engage him, at the end you would wish you let him be.
Arresting Raila will earn him immediate national sympathy. There will be immediate eruption of violence and demonstrations across Kenya that may result in scores of people losing lives and property damaged. Yet we expecting 7000 visitors attending WTO meet.
That will also be the reaction of DP William Samoei Ruto supporters if ICC convicts him. It is your business as the CEO of Kenya to make sure that does not happen. Letting all or one of them go to jail will not be good for health owing to the attendant chaos that will ensue.
Raila and Ruto supporters believe in the the duo, most of them are poor people who have nothing to lose dead or alive and therefore they can give it all to defend their leaders . In fact most of the supporters would love to die especially with the biting economic hardships but fear committing suicide but may love getting killed by other people on political matters because they will have died for a course.
President sir, am freely volunteering this advice, don’t wrestle with a pig in the mad or a crocodile in the water. Taking Raila to jail is like wrestling with a pig in the mad. It will leave you looking very dirty. Raila loves Prison, prisoners love him and your Prison Warders love his heroic vitendawilis.
Remember, Raila had been put down by Obama but our Jubilee Coalition resuscitated him to where he is now. Arresting him will make his popularity rating shoot exponentially.
Secondly sir, I’d like to point out that it is the business of your government to make sure that Raila and Ruto stay safe and in good health. Even fainting by either of them after eating like it happened to that Narok Deputy Governor may bring problems of monumental proportions to the country. So make sure they don’t even die of natural courses because their supporters may not believe it or know the difference. Their being alive and walking freely in opposing political circumstances is what’s keeping this country together. It is also your business to keep them apart for you to continue being President. If something happens to either of them, before a proper explanation can be offered, many bad things would have happened in the country. Sir, what does the 48 Laws of Power say about your enemy?
Happy Jamhuri your Excellency. I and my family pray for your good health, excellent leadership and a peaceful Kenya.
