We are doing everything possible to determine how Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua got hold of Okoa Kenya booklets.
It has convinced some of us who’ve all along insisted that TNA is buying booklets and compromising signature collection as they are scared to the bone of a humbling defeat should at the referendum ballot. Of course, it will be a humiliating!
Get it here; we are going to have a referendum. We intend to add more money to counties, give more communities power to determine their destinies far from Nairobi and make ‘sovereign guarantee’ a shared authority between the national government and county governments.
The bound Blue booklets (which Mbugua carried in his press conference) and claimed to be returning to Okoa Kenya were the second requisition by the secretariat whose samples begun circulating early this week.
Okoa Kenya Secretariat gives booklets to CORD volunteer supporters across the country without regard to ethnicity, age, gender, social standing in society or geographical location.
The secretariat DID NOT and HAS NEVER had any contact with Nakuru Governor Kinuthua Mbugua or anyone sent by the governor.
The process of having Okoa Kenya booklets is such that CORD leaders, supporters and volunteers make requisitions after which they either come in person or send their handlers to pick the booklets; the secretariat DOES NOT send books to anyone, including CORD Leaders, who have not made requests for the same.
How did Gov. Mbugua got hold of Okoa Kenya booklets? Easy.
One, he may have STOLEN them in Nakuru from our volunteers there. The stealing my have happened through hired thugs, paramilitary, jobless youths or him personally.
Two, he may have BOUGHT THEM from our volunteers, or even local leaders. Every man has a price.
Three, he may have liased with our supplier to get ‘fake booklets’ which did not emanate from the secretariat.
Four, he may have, using sheer violence, forcefully snatched the booklets from our volunteers in the county. We are making calls to know what exactly happened.
Five, I don’t know. I will stick to my first theory. He stole the booklets. STOLE!
But, really, what does this show on the character and integrity of Gov. Kinuthia Mbugua and that of the Jubilee Alliance and, or, President Uhuru Kenyatta? Should the President apologize to CORD? Is this TNA’s finest act of competitive democracy? stealing booklets?
Okoa Kenya Secretariat will definitely investigate and review this incident. However, even now, it borders on criminality!
The country must condemn what’s going on in Nakuru County where Gov. Mbugua is attempting to zone off the region and claim monarchical, if not outright tyrannical powers on the people therein. It is silly, it is backward, it will backfire.
The referendum should be won or lost, but all these should happen at the ballot box- the most decisive box ever invented by man.
