Social media users are displeased that Opposition chief Raila Odinga was denied the opportunity to speak at the Madaraka Day fete in Nyeri.
The NASA principal Raila reached Kabiruini grounds at about 10am shortly before President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Nyeri Governor Samuel Wamathai did not invite Raila to speak and called DP William Ruto instead.
Internet almost broke down with angry Kenyans cursing Uhuru for turning a national holiday to tribal cultural event. Uhuru lost all the undecided voters today.
Seeing Jubilee bloggers and Statehouse make numerous posts and tweets Justifying the Jubidionation and tribalization of Madaraka day, one gets the desperation of Jubilee.
Like Mandela and Dr. King, his Earthquakeness Raila Odinga handed Jubilee a fatal political blow without uttering any word.
After Raila castigated them for not inviting Mombasa government to the launch of SGR, they invited Raila not expecting him not to show up, so they can spin that he doesn’t respect national holidays.
Jubilee ran on a platform to form an inclusive government. And just like their numerous unfulfilled promises like 5 stadiums; 5 million jobs; 24 hours economy; lowering the cost of living, Jubilee has run one of the worst tribal government in Kenyan history.
I am therefore not surprised that for his last act as President and government, Uhuru and Jubilee chose to tribalize the sacred Madaraka day.
Jubilee was better off advertising their achievements and selling Unga, than denying the statesman, Dr. Odinga the opportunity to address Kenyans.
NASA is moving on to a landslide victory on 8/8/17 as they form a government of all Kenyans, for all Kenyans, and by all Kenyans.
