WHY KIKUYUS ARE CLEVERER OVER LUOS
By Albert Nyakundi Amenya aka The Banana peddler
You see, Kikuyus are not fools to engage Raila Odinga in a handshake. People have been asking, who is the beneficiary of the handshake? Everyone including my distinguished professor who taught me communication Herman Bond Manyora have missed the point.
Supporters of Raila foolishly think it is Raila who has benefited. But look here, there is no referenda that can pass in this country without the blessings of Raila Odinga. And Kikuyus know that.
Kikuyus know well that Uhuru is still youthful and cannot be frittered away into faineance. They want a powerful Uhuru around after 2022 and the only person who can make that happen is Raila Odinga.
The formular is clear, call Raila and don’t give him time to consult Orengo. Stage-manage a handshake to fool his supporters. Allow Raila to use the term His Excellency – Kikuyus know Luos are excited by titles – to gladden the hearts of his supporters. Call for a referendum and change the constitution to create the position of a powerful Prime Minister – to take effect in after 2022 – but promise Raila the Presidency or even his daughter. Raila has a huge following, with him, the referendum will pass. Ruto will oppose it as he has done previously but will lose as he has lost previous referendas.
After the referendum passes, bring back our true colours and through Raila out. Make Uhuru Powerful Prime Minister and William Ruto a weak President. Uhuru will still be in charge for the next two lustrums.
One question NASArites are not asking themselves, Kikuyus are always ruthless towards Raila Odinga and Luos. How come they are suddenly friendly? How come Uhuru has suddenly turned hospitable towards Raila yet this is his final term where he should have nothing to lose?
My regards and felicitations to those few incredulous compatriots like Anwar Saddat, Real Wesonga Onyango Hon Simba Arati Silas Gisiora Nyanchwani and myself who refused to buy that handshake and nonsensical syllables.
Trust me, after the referendum, no Kikuyu will want to hear the name of Raila Odinga. They will restore factory settings since you can’t undo the referenda.
That is why I say Kikuyus are clever.
