Plotting to oust Governor Kidero in Nairobi purely on the basis of his ethnicity. GEMA is acronym for the negative elitist ethnic forces that seek to use the populous Gikuyu, Embu and Meru holloi polloi for selfish political and economic ends; many ordinary Gikuyu, Embu and Meru people do not subscribe to the idea of GEMA hegemony.
Hon Kamanda and group have their eyes transfixed on Nairobi’s billions of devolved funds and taxes collected. In their counties of origin, they have no major industries but lay claim to some fantastical raving that their GEMA counties contribute 60% of taxes to the exchequer, how laughable!
The plot to remove “Jaluo” Kidero is coming from the same shameless GEMA supremacists who undertook decades of looting at City Hall forgetting that their failure to effectively manage the city or map out expansion plans is the very reason Nairobi is the huge garbage dump it is today.
People like Maina Kamanda and Ferdinand Waititu (some of the most vile tribalists in Kenya’s political landscape) deliver nothing but mediocrity; that which stiffled Nairobi (and Kenya ) for more than 50 years. In the process they accumulated personal wealth whilst working as incompetent Councillors in the defunct Nairobi City Council. It is shocking to see someone like Kiraitu Murungi hobnobbing with such a gang of intolerant ‘thieves’.
For decades, they grabbed plots and council houses. They are directly responsible to collapsing scheduled mass transport in the city (KBS), they are responsible for the hawker and matatu manace and the are the main sponsors of Mungiki tribal militia that wreaked havoc in the city for decades.
I have news for Central Kenya MPs. Hii Nairobi si ya mama ya mtu. I have serious reservations about Governor Kidero myself, but to remove him just because of his tribal origins is plain stupid and so so 1950ish.
