KUNA HATARI YA KALONZO MUSYOKA KUWA RAIS?

            Licha kwamba utafiti wa Steadman umemkweza Kalonzo Musyoka katika ngazi za juu zaidi kuliko wagombea wengine, ipo haja ya Wakenya kumpiga msasa huyu mheshimiwa Kalonzo Musyoka kabla ya kumpa kura zao.  Maswali ambayo tunawza kujiuliza ni , Je alipokuwa waziri wa nchi za kigeni ishughulikia nchi namna gani? Je ana elimu ya kulikwamua taifa kutokana na majanga mengi yanayolikumba? Je mbona mataifa ya magharibi yanampenda zaidi kuliko wagombea wengine? Anahusiana vipi na viongozi wengine?

            Kalonzo ni mwanasheria kutoka chuo kikuu cha Nairobi. Tunaelezwa kwamba ni msemaji bora. Ana ujuzi wa kutetea hoja bungeni na katika vikao vya kimataifa. Kwa kifupi anajua kujieleza vizuri kisheria  kwa lugha ya Kiingereza . Mgombea wa Urais anapokuwa na sifa kama hizi aghalabu mataifa ya magharibi huwa yamepata mwenzao katika kuendeleza unyonyaji wao barani Afrika. Mataifa haya yana hamu kubwa ya rais anayeziheshimu sheria; haijalishi sheria hizo ni za kugandamiza raia au za kuwafaidi. Yatahitaji mtu anayejua katiba na sheria za U.N. anazozielewa vizuri Kalonzo Musyoka. Aidha yanafurahia rais anayejumulisha  kishazi‘ the U.N. declaration….’ katika hotuba zake. Kwa njia hii, huwa wameteka nyara mawazo ya rais na ya raia wanaoongozwa na raiskama yule.  Kwa mfano iwapo Kalonzo ataunga mkono sheria ya U.N. inayosema ‘ mtu ana uhuru wa kuhamia nchi nyingine pasipokuwa vikwazo.’ Mataifa ya magharibi basi watatumia sheria hii kuzoa wataalamu kutoka barani Afrika huku Kalonzo akiendelea kushikilia na kuitetea sheria hii.  

            Pili, kama alivyokuwa Jakaya Kikwete wa Tanzania , Kalonzo alikuwa Waziri wa nchi za kigeni kwa kipindi cha miaka 6. Mgombea wa rais ambaye ana tajriba ya wizara hii huwa ametathminiwa ndani nje na mataifa ya magharibi kupitia hotuba zake za mara kwa mara. Anajulikana vizuri msimamo wake na falsafa yake kulihusu taifa lake. Mataifa haya ya magharibi hunasa hotuba za mawaziri hawa wa nchi za kigeni kisha wanazichunguza na kujua namna ya kumfurahisha anapokuwa rais. Mataifa haya hutafuta namna ya kufyonza zaidi kwa kutumia usemi wa mawaziri hawa. Hivyo basi akina Kikwete na Kalonzo wanapokuwa Marais basi inakuwa heri kwa mataifa haya ya magharibi. Mataifa haya yamezichunguza hotuba za Jakaya Kikwete kwa kipindi cha miaka 10 alipokuwa waziri wa nchi za kigeni na vivyo hivyo wamemjua Kalonzo vizuri alipokuwa waziri wa nchi za kigeni.

            Swala lingine ambalo raia watamshuku Kalonzo ni namna anavyopendeka na mataifa haya ya magharibi. Alipoanzisha Kalonzo ‘Musyoka Foundation’ walikuwepo mabalozi wa Marekani, Ujerumani, miongoni mwa wengine. Ni kawaida mtu anapotaka kitu kutoka kwa mtu fulani kuwa mzuri kupindukia. Hivi ndivyo mtoto huwa anapotaka peremende kutoka kwa mzazi. Inasemekana kwamba licha kwamba Kalonzo hako serikalini kwa sasa, ana athari kubwa sana kwa jinsi ambavyo mataifa ya kigeni yanahusiana na serikali ya Kibaki japo kwa njia fiche. Kwa misingi hii nikidhani kuna malighafi mataifa ya magharibi yamekuwa yakitaka na hili litawezekana tu Kalonzo anapokuwa rais.

            Tofauti na rais Kibaki, Kalonzo hana elimu ya Uchumi ambayo kwa kiasi kikubwa ndio mtikati wa maendeleo ya nchi. Kipindi chote Kibaki amekuwa katika siasa, falsafa yake imekuwa kumaliza umaskini. Hii ndiyo sababu ameamua kuwapa raia nafasi ya kwanza katika ubinafsishaji wa mashirika ya serikali. Sababu iyohiyo imempelekea kuajiri makatibu wa wizara walio na elimu ya uchumi. Vilevile napochunguza baraza lake la Mawaziri lina wataalamu zaidi likilinganishwa na mabaraza ya akina Moi na Kenyatta. Ukitaka kujua falsafa ya Kibaki kwa taifa la Kenya soma Jarida lake ‘Why Kenya needs an economist’. Tofauti nyingine ni kwamba Kibaki ametambua siri ya kunyamaza. Si mzungumzaji wa kiholela kama alivyokuwa Moi na Kenyatta. Anatenda kazi kwa njia ya unyamavu. Polisi walipovamia Standard hakutoa maoni;  vilevile Githongo alipofichua kashfa ya Anglo leasing alinyamaza kimya. Unyamavu ni silaha kubwa ambayo viongozi wa Afrika hawajaitambua. Kunyamaza humfanya mtu kuhesabiwa kuwa mwenye busara. Kunyamaza huwaogofya maadui wa mtu maanake hawajui mwenye kunyamaza anawazia nini. Aghalabu Kibaki amelazimishwa kutoa maoni yake kuhusiana na kashfa mbalimbali lakini ameamua kunyamaza kimya. Alilofanya ni kuwaachisha kazi na kuwafungulia mashtaka wahusika bali hazungumzi katu. Kalonzo kwa upande wake si myamavu japo si mzungumzaji wa kila marakama walivyo Raila na Kenyatta. Taifa la Kenya halihitaji rais 'mdomo wazi' kupita kiasi. Maanake mdomo wazi huwafungulia njia maadui wa nchi yakiwemo mataifa ya magharibi kuzijua siri za serikali na taifa kwa jumla.

  3. Ndu, sikujua kuna watu wanaokaa chini kupiga msasa mambo jinsi ulivyofanya.nakubaliana nawe unapomzungumzia Kalonzo, lakini labda ungefanya utafiti zaidi kidogo juu ya Ndugu Kikwete.Ukitazama sera alizoanzisha Ndugu JK, utapata ameanza kuwajaza wamashariki tumbo baridi. Anzia na mtazamo wako kuhusu, ule mfumo wa soko huru alioanzisha Ndugu Mwinyi. Ndugu JK amesha tambua kwamba wawili hawa, Mwinyi na Mkapa, waliwanufaisha wageni huku wakisahau hali ya ukiwa ya mtanzania wa kawaida. Sera za JK huenda kwa kipindi kifupi kijacho, zikainua maisha ya mtanzania wa kiwango cha chini.

    lakini kwa jumla, mada yako umenitia shime ya kuchanja maswala ya bara letu, hasa wakati huu ambapo mkoloni ametukodolea macho, na huenda akatutia kwapani tusipo kaa chonjo.

  7. Maoni yako, yanaonyesha kuwa, bado sisi Wa-Africa tutaendelea kujikaanga na mafuta yetu kama Moi alivyokuwa akisema.Kwanza hatuishiwi na sababu na hatutaki kuwajibika.Lini tutaacha kulaumu mataifa ya magharibi kwa matatizo yetu tunayoyaanzisha wenyewe.Makosa ya ufinyu na ufisadi wa utawala wa Kibaki yanalaumiwa Raila au Kalonzo.Kibaki hafai kabisa kwa sababu sio kiongozi, yeye ni mbepari na myonyaji asiyejali raia wa kawaida.Mwongo nambari moja, anayekana hata familia yake.Ikiwa WAMBUI siye mkewe na WINNIE siye bintiye kwa nini wanalindwa kuliko mawaziri; na walikuwa wanapata umwinyi wanaoupata sasa kabla ya Kibaki kutudanganya sisi sote na kujisokomeza Ikulu. Nafikiri Kalonzo ni bora kuliko Kibaki na Raila ni bora zaidi.Kikwete ni kiongozi halisi na tafadhali sita kumwaribia sifa zake.Ni wazi maoni yako yanaongozwa na chuki na upendeleo lakini bila ya kujijua sababu.Umeadaika na siasa za wanasiasa wa Kenya.Mukhisa Kituyi naye ndiye kwisha kabisaaaaa; hauoni anajihisi MKIKUYU kuliko kina KAMAU na WAMBUI? ana msimamo, sawa na TUJU na Mutua KATUKU na MBWAWATANA, MNGATANA kadhalika KOIGI.Afadhali hata MICHUKI ana msimamo hata kama hauwapendezi wengi.

    Jameni fikirieni zaidi na tuwache kulaumiana pasipo na sababu na tuanze kuunga mkono vilivyo vyetu.Mataifa ya Magharibi hayana haja na Africa tena na yanafurahi yakiona tukipoteza malengo yetu na kuvurugana bila ya sababu.Kwa nini yatuvuruge wakati tunajivuruga wenyewe?

  12. I might be a Kamba but,I am more than enthusiastic to state that your analysis of both Kibaki and Kalonzo. Kalonzo has got absolutely no economic agenda for this country. kenya least needs a polical protagonist or agitator but an economic conscience person in the making of Kibaki. he is old but an economic master planner.

  13. The writer has got it all wrong, but at the end of the day he is still like anyone else entitled to his opinion, no matter how wrong it might be.

    The first thing that strike me about the write up is the fact that the writer seems to have an orientation towards Kibaki. That’s okay, but the moment he get his facts all wrong, that’s another issue all together.

    Are you Kenyan?

    Kibaki was a vice president for the at least 10 years under Moi’s dictatorial rule. Perhaps he should be proud that he ensured that section 2A was repelled and Kenya turned into a barbaric state run by a bunch of idiotic plunderers? Of course as is the case today, he was quiet most of the time, definitely a sign of he’s incompetence and lack of courage.

    Kibaki is a president for the rich, and he would prefer that the poor remain in that state. Worse still, his wife thinks the same, remember the Korogoco Remark?

    Somebody who can not keep a simple promise like a MOU made in broad day light in the presence of lawyers & wanachi surely must to be expected to deliver.

    Initially one might have mistaken his incompetence to the accident, unfortunately that was not the case, he’s a just another pretender amongst many, to be more precise, a wolf in sheep skin.

    I haven’t mentioned the Arturs, Anglo leasing, standard raids, deaths during referendum campaigns etc, the least is endless/.

    While I do not want to drum up support for Kalonzo, one thing that beats me is this. Doesn’t someone see the qualities in WANGARI MAATHAI?

    Akhsante sana kwa maoni yako,nashukuru sana kwa kazi yaki mwandime kabisa,lakini sioni udosari wowote kuhusu kupendwa kwa mheshimiwa Kalonzo Musyoka na mataifa ya kigeni.Kalonzo ni mtu mpenda uwazi na niyo no moja ya swala nyeti ya uongozi.

    Kuhusu elimu yake,nadhani si lazima uwe umesomea talluma fulani ndio huweza kumudu uongozi wa nchi,raisi mstaafu Daniel Moi Alisomea Taaluma gani?Kibaki anafanya siasa na uchimi na hakuna manufaa yoyote dhahiri kwa mkenya wa kawaida.

    Asante sana na muache kudaganywa na ukuaji wa katiba usokuwepe.Swali uchumi Utakua kwa njia gani na ufisadi ndio huo?

  17. There is no doubt that the man who has been swapping places with President Kibaki in the opinion polls (although i dont believe that Kibaki beats him with such margins), Kalonzo is surely da bomb. Given that the race will be two horse, i.e between Kibaki and Kalonzo, the latter will definately win by a big margin. I admire him, though not necessarily his good looks but his ability to steer the country professionally if given that chance.
    The way he has handled his dockets in the ministries he has been assigned duties is a clear testimony that this man, Kalonzo is destined to take Kenyans to the land of milk and honey.
    Over to you other ODM-Kenya aspirants, the writing is on the wall: you either unite and become a formidable force or NARC-K (is it Kenya or (u)Kabila)? will run over you like nobody’s business.

  21. Na kubaliana na maoni yako. Ni juhudi yet wakenya kutambua wanaoweza kutunifaidi. La Kalonzo, Raila au Uhuru ni debe ambalo limejulikana. Ni kiongeza maoni yangu, linganisha Raila au Kalonzo na Kibaki walopokuwa mawaziri. Utaona Kibaki alisaidia Othaya kwa mengi. Ni vile vile mheshimiwa Kamotho. Hatuwezi kutambua kwa kina ambalo walifanya wakiwa mawaziri Raila au Kalonzo. Tumsahau Uhuru, hana rekodi, kwa ufupi hatumjui!
    Tusaidie wakenya wenzetu, hatutaki Raisi ambaye atatufanya tuwe watu wa kupiga domo! Hoja ya Raila au Kalonzo kuzungusha wakenya wasio na kazi kutoka uwanja mmoja hadi mwingine, ni ya kustaajabu. Twataka vitendo sio mdomo tafadhali.

  22. I will totally agree with those Kalonzo as the right guy to lead this country. Let’s not accuse Kalonzo he has been in the cabinet for 20yrs, his performance is in records wonderful, and to mention a few the ministry of education was messed up by Kamotho the guy come in and streamlined, Tourism, Foreign affairs. The current president has been in the cabinet for over thirty yrs even as a vice president what did he do then what we Kalonzo never did. Kalonzo given opportunity will do great in this nation for he fears the Lord God almighty unlike most of our politicians.”KALONZO CORRUPT FREE FOR PRESIDENCY 07″. Luke

  23. i like your opinion for that is what you think, according to you its right which might not be the case at the long run, Musyoka is a gentelman who puts his thoughts and feelings straight, everyone has his or her own mistakes which is very nomal, so as you have stated clearly you support NARC Kenya, who are known never to respect the rule of the law, is it a criminal to be a law abiding citizen which kalonzo is? we need a president who can respect human rights, peples property, and the right to life not what we have been seing about this govt.

  24. It is high time we need to give a chance to young, Brilliant, Energetic, & God fearing Leaders (Like Kalonzo) to explore their Leadership Talents. It is true we need a Leader who can Respect, understand, & uplift the Lives of atleast 31M Kenyans if not 32M. Again we need to “experience” the taste of a (Less than) 60 Years Old President. I think we have had enough of OVER AGE Presidents. May God open Kenyans Eyes so we can see far this time round. Tushanukeni tumchangue Rais ambaye tunaweza Kujivunia (kama vile Wamefanya Watanzania).

Tutaendelea kupata Ma-Presu “bure”, “Mafi ya Kuku”, “Pumbavu”, etc. Why dont we pray to God that he gives us the Perfect President this time? (I think Kalonzo is +/- okay). Si tumjaribu!!

  27. Shukrani mwandishi kwa maoni yako binafsi. Ni sharti Wakenya wenzangu wajifunze kuheshimu maoni ya wenzao. Inahuzunisha kuona kwamba watu wengine wanakumbatia matusi na kuyaleta hapa.Haina haja kumtusi KAlonzo. Iwapo haukubaliani na sera zake, demokrasia inakupea huru wa kumpinga katika debe(ballot)

    La muhimu ni hili: Rais yeyote ambaye angechaguliwa 2002 alitarajiwa kupeana uongozi bora kuliko rais Moi. Hivyo, ni bora kutumia vipimo vingine(yaani benchmarks) kukadiri ufanisi wa uongozi wa Kibaki. Ni kweli kwamba kibaki amefanya kazi nzuri (kuliko Moi) Lakini swali muhimu ni hili: Je, Kibaki amefanya kazi nzuri kulingana na matarajio ya wakenya? au angalau kulingana na Kitambulisho(Manifesto) iliyompelekea kuchaguliwa?

    Lazima wakenya tuangalie mambo vichwa wazi(open mind). Uhuru Kenyatta, aliyegombea urais kwa tiketi ya Kanu alisema kuhusu katiba yakwamba haingewezekana kutupea katiba katika muda wa siku mia moja….bali angehitaji muda zaidi kidogo kufanya mawasiliano na washika dau. Kibaki naye alitwambia tungepata katiba kabla ya kwisha kwa siku mia moja. Miaka minne sasa imeisha sasa (siku zaidi ya 1000) na bado hatujapata katiba. Jambo kama hili lilichangia sana kuchaguliwa kwa kibaki..na kushindwa kwa Uhuru. Mambo mengi pia ambayo yalikuwa miundo msingi yametupiliwa mbali. Sina haja kuwakumbusha vile Kibaki amefunga macho kuhusu Goldenberg, Anglo Leasing, Arturs….na MoU, na juu zaidi vile serikali yake imeweka rekodi kwa kukatalia amri za koti.

    Jambo ningependa tuangalie ni sera ambazo zinadhihirisha mawazo,ndoto na matakwa ya wakenya….bila kulinganisha na serikali ya ki-imla ya Moi.

  28. Wakenya wenzangu, ni heri tunapopiga kura zetu mwakani tufikilie sana yule atakaye shika hatamu za uongozi. Wale wote ambao wameonyesha nia ya kushaguliwa wana dosari moja au nyingine. Ukiangalia vyama tilizo nazo nchini, hakuna tofauti ya kisela. Ingekuwa bora zaidi kwa wakenya kuchagua kiongozi pasi kuzingatia misingi ya kikabila.Hii ni kwa sababu kama rais angekuwa anasaidia kabila lake, basi hatungekuwa na maskini katika ndugu zetu wakikuyu au wakalejin ambao wamebahatika kuwa na rais kutoka kwao.Unapotembea katika maeneo haya hali ya mwananchi wa kawaida ni ile ile umaskini wa kupindukia. Sioni haja ata kidogo ya wakenya kupiga kura kwa mbunge yeyote ambaye ako kwa mbunge hivi sasa. Hii ni kwa sababu wote hawana haja na wele waliowachagua; Kazi yao ni kujiongeza mishahara ili hali mambo yanaendelea kuharibika. Ni miswada ngapi wamepitisha tangu mbunge ilipofunguliwa kwa kikao cha kwanza 2003? Wote wametusariti- Upinzani na serikali na ingekuwa busara kama tungewaweka nje angalau kwa miaka tano na kupatia wengine wapya ili tuone kama wataendesha kenya mbele bila siasa ya ukabila na ubinafsi.
    KUMBUKA KENYA NI YA KABILA MBILI. MASKINI NA MATAJILI. UKICHAGUA TAJIRI KWA SABABU AMENUNUA KURA YAKO KWA PESA, HAUTAKUWA NA SABABU YA KUPIGA KELELE UMASKINI UNAPOKUSAKAMA KOO. HEBU FANYA UAMUSI WA BUSARA MWAKANI- UMECHOKA NA SIASA ZA UBINAFSI ZISIZOKUWA NA SERA MWAFAKA , ZINAZOENDESHWA NA WANASIASA WA SASA AU LA? SIASA AMBAZO MWIZI WA JANA AMEKUWA MALAIKA LEO KWA KUWA AKO KWA CHAMA KILE AMBACHO UMEAMBIWA NDIO BORA ZAIDI.

  29. Inaonekana ndugu yangu hamini ya kwamba Kalonzo anaweza kuongoza nchi hii. Mimi ni mkenya na katika shida zote tulizo nazo, najivunia pia kwa sababu kuna majirani zangu ambao hawajui amani ni nini!

    Kuhusu swala la Kalonzo, mimi sioni ubaya wowote yeye kuongoza nchi hii. Hatuwezi kuhimiza Kalonzo kuwa adui wa nchi za magharibi ili nasi tumpende.Anapendeka kwa matendo yake. Na hata ikiwa nchi za magharibi zina nia zao, basi Kalonzo akiwa raisi atengenezi sheria peke yake. Wambunge wenzake lazima waamue. Pia Nchi ni ya wananchi si ya raisi Kibaki, na serikali ni wananchi wote si watu fulani.

    jambo la muhimu ni kuhimiza yoyoye atakaye kuwa raisi aendelee kuelezea wananchi sera zake na maendeleo ya uchumu, kijamamii atayoleta.

    Yeyote wananchi watakaochangua watakuwa maweamua wao wenyewe!

  31. As a constituent of Mwingi North, I never cease to be amazed by how someone can so carefully, and craftly disguise themselves as someone they are not. We people of Mwingi North are praying to God day and night to protect us from the Herod you Kenyans are likening to Christ.

    Kalonzo Musyoka has definetely played his cards well, hiding behind a supervisial image of an innocent and honest leader. We read comments on his character and personality with dismay and wonder how Kenyans can be so blind.

    We are not asking Kenyans to take our word for it. No, we are asking you to see with your own eyes, what this man has done in Mwingi North for the 2 decades he has been in power. Please, pay us a visit. Go to his home town, for only then, can you see what he stands for.

    A lot has been said about Kalonzo, including credit being given to him for being elected again and again by his constituents. What people miss to read from this is the fact that during Moi’s rule, it was in fact Moi himself who did elections for the people of Mwingi. Every time before elections, he would visit the Constituency like many others, and declare the person he wanted to be elected to parliament. Or have Kenyans forgetton that?

    As long as Moi said he wanted that ‘kijana’ back, the administrtion of the area, including the DC, DO, Chiefs and police would not sleep until that was done. People will be intimidated, harrased and threatened, as long as they posed political and economic threat to Kalonzo. I can confirm to you that this man was always elected out of fear not out of competence in his representation.

    He has terrorized the youth especially university graduates with a promising future because he always saw them as political threat to him. We are watching the developments and asking God, if nobody could stand in his presence as an MP and Minister, who will protect us from his cruety to those who don’t bow to worship him?

    Our peace of mind lies in knowing that God sees the inner person and knows the motives, even though the human eye can only see the outward appearance. We trust God to reveal the real person behind the pleasant face presented to the world.

  32. Any reasonable person will agree that LDP were shortchanged by kibaki over the MOU. That does not give Kalonzo and the ODM brigade the locus standi to lead Kenyans. Granted the current government has made many goofs in leading Kenyans, but what do the ODM portend to bring to the table. Majority of the time, we see them in press conferences criticizing, but we have not seen any one of them present a serious document that will guide Kenyans from the hole created by 24 years of mismanagement.

    Charity begins at home, let Kalonzo show Kenyans a microcosm of what he can achieve. If that is going to be Mwingi, then he is a none starter.

  33. There is no right way to do a wrong thing.
    Politics and Society.
    Dear Colleagues,

    This is a reaction to unnecessarily expletive and highly explosive media exchanges among political and social commentators on the media (mainly non-staff, opinion and commentaries contributors). There is a need to be a great deal more modest in claims we make about our prowess and our various capacities, more important, in our judgment of others, because we never really know all there is to know about each other.

    Humility too, recognizing that though we may have incredible human qualities than others, it is not for us ultimately to judge one another.

    Wisdom reminds us that pride and loss of humility, is the root of every evil. It is when the now fallen angels began to look upon themselves with self-complacency that they were led to disobedience and were cast down from the light of heaven into outer darkness. Even so, it was when the serpent breathed the poison of pride, the desire to be God, into the hearts of our first parents that they too fell from their high estate into all the wretchedness in which man is now sunk. In heaven and earth, pride and self-exaltation are the gate and birth and the curse of hell.

    None of us is immune to pride, and the problem is that as our heads swells, so they shrink. The prevalent unnecessarily explosive and expletive media exchanges and arrogance, really stem from fear and insecurity, and in the end the image they intend to portray that of, bigger and better than others is actually the flip side of the reality that one feels smaller and inadequate than others. Proper humility helps us avoid the hubris that can so quickly turn us into hopelessness.

    Thanks to some individuals’ efforts and fight to create the current freedom of expression atmosphere prevalent in Kenya, of course without being ignorant of the technological developments.

    But also wisdom cautions us not to ignore the fact sometimes those who oppose oppressiveness could also end up becoming like what they most abhorred. Tragically there is evidence those who opposed colonialism in Kenya and successive oppressive regimes have become brutalized themselves and descended to the same low levels as those they were opposing.

    Of course there are few who have remarkably been able to maintain their humanity even under the most brutal circumstances. We have seen their contributions inspire others, embolden others who were timid, to stand up to the truth in the midst of distortion, propaganda and deceit, for human dignity and decency at times when they were in desperately short supply.

    I am not in any mood to censor or censure no one because those who work tirelessly for the freedom of expression, technologically or against oppressive regimes do not envision freedom of expression for the privileged few neither do they call us to engage in an intellectual exercise. However, the privilege of being a leader in this field requires not only the active engagement of our minds but also the warm embrace of our hearts. If we do not keep both in view, a generous heart can make error look like truth, just as arrogance can make truth look like error.

    Who can measure the confusion that occurs when truth is spoken with condemnation and self-righteousness, while lies are told with patience and love? Just contemplate a Heaven where angels speak with arrogance and a hell where demons speak with devotion to their enemies?

    Truth spoken without love is devastatingly harmful. Love expressed without truth is tragically misleading.

    Let Kenyans express themselves, no matter how dumb, partisan or illogical, each and every one of them has a message, whether in the Diaspora or in Kenya. We need not lose sight of what comprises our community; scholars, illiterates, wealthy, peasants, poor, disabled both physically, mentally and spiritually, but none is more or a lesser Kenyan than the other. We all are part of our nation’s problems and part of the solution too.

    I refuse the notion that, those who are in the Diaspora have no right neither are they welcome to comment on current political and social issues in Kenya. Just for the record my fetus, my wife’s and my children’s are buried in Kenyan soil and, in case the maternity hospitals fed them to animals, the animals excreted on Kenyan soil.

    Isn’t it ironic that, in times of conflict, we all have right on our side? Whether our disagreements are tribal, political, marital, ecclesiastical, local or international. How quickly do we seek allies and immediately claim and hold the moral high ground?

    Many are the commentaries written by Kenyans in the Diaspora which are very inspiring, factual and enlightening. Of course some display partisanship, arrogance, pain and hate and total disregard of the ethics of the profession, and sometimes the authors end up portraying their sense of self-importance instead of the subject matter.

    Many are exposing themselves as compliant accomplices, advancing their own political or personal agendas in the process of assisting their preferred subject. Of course others are simply a dupe, gullible or innocent pawns of political scheming and deceit swirling behind closed doors.We know once their commentaries are published, they dine and party on their revelations and perceived insight for essentially the same reason that officials violate their oaths of confidentiality in order to be perceived as members of a know it all insiders elite,- talk of vanity. And for once don’t think they are all driven by patriotism or are objective and fair with no political axes to grind!

    All of us seek to build a peaceful nation of equal but competitive opportunities devoid of classification;- the source of discrimination. Them and us. They are illiterate, they are different because their tongue clicks different from ours, they fear the cut, we don’t, they live in Landimawe and we live in Loresho, we went to college and they didn’t.

    Kenya’s political future is so important to all of us to be left in the hands of a few self-appointed intellectual commentators who are anyway displaying open bias towards their preferred subjects. Should we only pay attention to commentators because they are scholars or because they are Kenyans?

    To get a true sense of these media intimidations one is inclined to recall, those must read commentaries by “Expert Political Commentators and University Lecturers”, Dr. Mukhisa Kituyi, Prof. Kivutha Kibwana and Gibson Kamau Kuria and prominent lawyers Gitobu Imanyara, Kiraitu Murungi etc. Hopefully the current analysists/commentators are not motivated by future political largesse or the obove hypocritical metamorphic skills.

    This is not a tactic or a clever way of sneaking political messages across but genuinely believes that all the commentators are driven by their desire to offer us all guidance and not judgment and dupery, advice, clarifications, experience and not condemnation.

    We can build Kenya out of seekers of truth, but not out of possessors of truth, because not all of us would have the same truth, and each one of us would feel obliged to defend his truth as being the only valid. The sad part is, we never even notice how unpleasant and unbearable we become when we insist we are always right. And equally sad is that the more we suspect we may in fact have been wrong, the more stubbornly we fight to justify ourselves.

    IF only some of these commentaries could have been stripped off, the fangs of hate and arrogance, fear and insecurity, self-righteousness and sycophancy, labeling and caging they could have strongly communicated the message without being dismissive of their opponent’s ideas. Not too long ago, I was engaged in a debate with an intellectual cabinet minister which ran for weeks;- but abruptly he demanded I hold current Kenyan leaders with esteem for they are Gods anointed, but then I reminded him, that bin Laden (real or a creation) claims to be anointed by God to kill. He has since severed our communications.

    When Raila uttered the now infamous “Kibaki Tosha” for once many saw a savior anointed to save Kenyans from their tribal self-destruction. Weren’t we wrong? ONE. Kenya’s problem is not tribalism; it is deeper than our tribes. TWO although tribalism is a reality, it is a disguise which every five years gets repackaged for a formidable rebirth. Never mind we are now busy acting midwives to the next rebirth. Ironically it is these unfounded backwardness tribal prejudices, Raila sought to kick start towards their deservedly road leading to their final burial with his “Tosha” proclamation which are being repackaged to continue duping and manipulating the masses against him.

    Where is the real problem?

    Strong institutions in Kenya do not exclude political parties. Our political institutions are severely compromised and flawed, yet we expect them to be pioneers and custodians of our institutions without first addressing the all obvious flaws. How can we keep on denying and ignoring that ours are not convenient political clubs, aptly constituted and reconstituted to perpetuate political dupery, naively or deliberately supported even by scholars at the whims and for the interests of the RULING ELITE? If we have reliable and effective institutions, authentic and reliable politicians, why are we fidgeting and worrisome about party leadership contests; shouldn’t we trust the institutions to sort out the right candidates? And why are we politicking non-stop 24 hours, Monday to Sunday, January to December?

    Ironically we always accept to be entered into the tournament for the match of our lives without even agreeing on what constitutes a penalty or an off-side (I do not advocate for boycotts, but rather for uncompromising quest for reforms). As history has shown us, there is never a new beginning or a renewal without first changing the rules. We can as well go and elect an angel to the presidency, as long the laws are as they are, THERE WILL NEVER BE A BETTER THAN,- Kenyatta, Moi or Kibaki.

    Our leaders are ineffective, paralyzed and importent contributors to our miseries.All they do is lie to us that we are victims and they are leading us to salvation and prosperity. But they are leading us to their prosperity not ours.They distort the fact that Independence was won to free us and enrich our lives in freedom without compromising our morals. Remember Kenyatta’s independence speech, declaring his government’s commitment to eradicate poverty, disease and illiteracy?

    Then why after 43 years of independence, majority of Kenyans are still living in hopelessness, abject poverty, dying of curable diseases and entrapped in contradictory morals. Why are our politicians still engaged in tribal arguments, patronage and political largesse instead of modernization, wealth creation, social issues, modern day challenges, social safety nets etc.

    Each politician is promising and swearing to give Kenya a new constitution, but even for those who are being touted to be our political saviors the loopholes which weakens our institutions are Godsend. Needless to say their backers would also use them to throw rings around them for exclusivity. (According to Kenyan political intelligentsia, ideologies notwithstanding, politicians are same and think alike as long as at a particular period they belong to the same political club, but overnight some become neophyte and non-match if and when they happen to back the opposing political club) And YES! Some are more politically equal than others? YES! Looks become campaign issues?

    We crave for exclusivity. We crave to be different, we crave even for exclusive leaders limited to us, a certain group of people, special people not the common type, yet we are dependant on the commoners for this exclusivity. Even for the simplest of the tasks in the hands of a Kenyan is not worthy pursuing until it’s transformed into a complex, unique and intriguing mystique. Aren’t we great? We even treat the weak, the poor, the unemployed, the failures with disdain, because success and power and mystique are the gods at whose altars we are burning incense and bowing the knees.

    This is how we change our leaders (all spheres of leadership including political, academicals, social etc) into demigods in pursuit of our own exclusivity, although experience has shown no matter how high we carry them, whenever we drop them, which we eventually do their feet and ours too, land exactly within the footprints from which we lifted them off the ground. Yet we keep on ignoring the evidence that there is no defeat more terrible than the defeat of our hearts driven wild by a desire for mystique power.

    In the words of the late Mwalimu Julius Nyerere of Tanzania, “Your defenders defends you from your defenders” So true, especially in Kenya where previously we may have had sycophants, but today, Kibaki, Raila and Kalonzo have acquired for themselves fanatical supporters who are not only defending them from their defenders but are alienating their would be voters from them too.

    Many a times one hears “Kibaki is a fence sitter” but are we sure it is not our reflection deflected from Kibaki? We better stop the lie and consciously dismantle the fences which are unconsciously imprisoning us. Kibaki has proved he is not a fence sitter. We Are!

    Do we really want change?

    Authentic resolutions and desire for a change do not mean insisting the world around us change, but it necessitates turning within and examining where our own energies are blocked in relation to the experience upsetting us. Majority of Kenyans understand this fact all too well, but choose to bury their heads in the sand ignoring the basis of our conflicts.

    Since many aspects within conflicts spring from individuals selfish success-plans or have their awareness encompassed by our archaic tribal delusions, we can expect increasing conflicts as always stemming from resistance to change. However circumstances and time continues to push our conflicts into a “grace in disguise” phase; there are indications our conflicts are starting to eat up all that cannot and will not change. Wisdom reminds us nature does not support stray egos fuelled by self-indulgent intent. We either change course at our own pace or eventually wait to be forced to by circumstances beyond our control. It is time to let our tribal prejudices and political patronage and selfishness go. They are only ripping us all apart.

    Real change can only come when the pain of having something in our lives not working exceeds the pain of making a change, or when the rewards of change exceeds the rewards of resistance. We have come a long way to realize change do not require resolutions we cannot keep or the guilt that follows our failure, but the intense awareness that accompanies self-confrontation. We fear self-confrontation, often choosing self-righteousness to shield us from the one thing that can move us forward; – self confrontation. Self-righteousness does not bring change, self-confrontation does.

    Most of the change we think we see in Kenya is always due to truths being in and out of favor. In his self-perceived ingenious, Charles Njonjo made “ Moi Tosha” believing he was laying his own foundation for the presidency, but the herdsman he thought would last 24 months on the throne, ended up misruling Kenya for 24 years. We all know LDP’s support for Kibaki was a deception, first calculated on the basis of ethnicity to block Uhuru and on the basis of Kibaki’s age. With or without the MOU, the calculation seems to have been the throne would be there for the taking this year. The 2002 presidential election was the mother of all deceptions and we all are stuck in its consequences.

    Wisdom reminds us, causes have effects and if we lie to ourselves and to others then we cannot expect to find truth and reality whenever we happen to want them. If we have chosen the way of falsity we must not be surprised that truth eludes us when we finally come to need it. That is where we are now in Kenya.

    Ironically Kenya is reputed to have had one of the most revered freedom struggles in the world (Mau Mau) which inspired many other reputable struggles around the world including the struggle against Apartheid. Many in South Africa including Rolihlahla Mandela tried to tell us that much, but we were not interested. Today, our own leaders including Prof. Wangari Maathai are urging us to emulate Mandela and South Africa’s democracy and governance. Surely we cannot be that disingenuous to only crave for the final product, “Mandela and his peoples democracy” while trying to avoid the chisels which shaped the final product we see today; – authenticity, humility, humane, generous, selfless, firm and resolute to our calling.

    When LDP started rebelling against Kibaki’s regime, they had convincing reasons; – betrayal and ideological differences. Partly this led to the overwhelming victory against the flawed Wako draft. Sadly and increasingly they are coming across as driven by their personal competing egoistic impulses, instead of collective genuine resolve on ideologies and the quest for the ever elusive constitutional reforms. What a field day for the opinion polls pollsters and a second term gift for the incumbent?

    The 2002 elections had all the hallmarks of a revolution. But our ideology of political revolution has and cannot change anything except appearances. Of course there will be violence, and power will pass from one group to another but when the smoke clears and the bodies of the entire dead are underground, the situation will essentially be the same as it was before;-minority of strong men in power exploiting all the others for their own ends. There will be the same greed and cruelty and lust and ambition and avarice and hypocrisy as before because superficial revolutions can only bring superficial regimes.

    True moral high ground

    Unfortunately the world continues to become too complicated for us, making us vulnerable to the person who offers to reduce the agony of our decision making with supportive loving professionals and minders. At its worst, this vulnerability gives us an Adolf Hitler, who strode into the moral decay and economic ruin of Germany in the 1930s and said, “Follow me, never question me, and I will lead you out of this”. In our own small ways we keep on trying to mimic the same?

    Of course reality dictates it would be naive to expect pure perfection here on earth. Sad to say people are imperfect and anyone looking for pure perfection must look where there are no people.

    We are constantly reminded that the evil impulse is such an intimate part of every one of us that we cannot remove it; we cannot isolate it without drastically harming ourselves in the process. It would be like asking a brain surgeon to operate on us and remove the parts of our brains that give rise to “bad thoughts and motivation for evil” without harming the rest of the brain. However this is not to say we tolerate pure mediocrity and evil.

    As maturity experiences would teach us one cannot be complete without having to wrestle with his own demons and for that matter with his own angel. Like lifting weights at the gym to become stronger, we strengthen our moral fiber by the exercise of resisting temptation.

    And when one cannot identify and understand the impulses which summons him to be selfish, impatient and insensitive, he is yet to lift enough moral weights in the temptation Gym. This is how I view the impatience, expletives, self-delusions and arrogance being displayed in our modern day commentaries both in the public media and in the internet, and also in Kenya’s murky political terrain.

    Think of Martin Luther King Junior’s life. We have learnt that he indulged in many extramarital dalliances while he was leading the battle for civil rights in the 1960s, but his behavior does not diminish what he did to cleanse America’s soul of taint of racial segregation. We cannot dismiss the civil-rights crusade because its leading exponent was guilty of adultery. Many in the US admit many things that John Kennedy and Bill Clinton did for their country despite what they learnt about their extramarital involvements. But at the same time I don’t think they say adultery cannot be that bad if good people like Kennedy, Clinton and King did it; the message being, Good people do bad things and if they weren’t tempted by their negative impulses, they might not be capable of the mightily good things they do.

    We want to punish wrongdoers because we want to live in a safer and just world, a world on which people are protected from criminals and wrongdoers suffer the consequences of their bad behaviour.But if we believe in meting out justice we also need to believe we are good people. But also part of us feels guilty when we have hurt someone, even if we believe that person deserves to be hurt. The ambivalence in getting even is that our consciences condemn it even as our souls crave it. It has been suggested that Shakespeare set his great revenge plays, Hamlet, Othello and Coriolanus not in England but in Denmark, Cyprus and Rome as a way of playing to his audience’s emotions, giving them what they wanted to see, while at the same time saying these people doing these things are not us.They are exotic foreigners. Our tribalism prejudices, exclusivity, political patronage and hostilities is our way of isolating and exiling our own people and making them exotic foreigners in their own land.

    The problem however arise when people fear that they cannot depend on society to administer justice, that the courts are slow, unreliable, or inclined to play favorites or that the law is full of loopholes that let the guilty escape. We then face the uncomfortable choice between letting a guilty person go free and taking the responsibility for punishing into our own hands, with the bitter aftertaste and sense of moral compromise that often entails.

    Many acknowledge to have sat in movie theatres, their hearts rejoicing at the retributive violence of movie characters even as their conscience condemned the mindless destruction. A passage in the Talmud describes God as rebuking the angels who were cheering at the sight of Egyptian army drowning in the Red Sea: “How can you cheer? They too are My creatures”. If even angels are moved to delight at the downfall of the wicked, how can we not be? And if God condemns the angels’ delight as improper, how can we not be embarrassed by our own?

    The relevance of Moses’ Bible mission

    First we must realize that oppression is as old as human beings and there will never be shortage of oppressors as long as human beings exist. Moses and Ramses the Prince and later the Pharaoh grew up together, greatly caring about each other but enemies and never stopped being brothers.A lie made them brothers but the truth separated them forever. Conscious or unconsciously whenever one is obliged to free an oppressed community he/she inherits Moses’ mission.

    Whether he was divinely guided or otherwise, Moses faced skepticism from his own people he so craved to free. But one of his fiercest pessimist critic and brother Aaron ended up inheriting his mission and those who encouraged him among them his sister Miriam did not do it blindly, neither acted in a detrimental way to compromise his mission.

    Healing, Revenge or Vindictiveness?

    Kenyans have had their share of traumatic hostilities but we continue to mask our trauma, even when it is all clearly manifested in our midst. This is why we cannot ignore what happened in South Africa after the apartheid. For those who fear the truth, South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation experience is worthy considering. The victims and relatives of victims of apartheid violence did not seek to hurt those who had hurt them.They wanted their dignity as human beings restored to them and when Desmond Tutu’s Truth and reconciliation Commission endorsed their testimony they got their dignity back. They wanted to reclaim power over their own lives. Although some felt unsatisfied that so many wrongdoers were not punished more severely, most felt no need to see them hurt.The commission had given them what they needed.Revenge would have been an inadequate substitute. The healing of South Africa was an unanticipated outcome.It is starting to have the same effects in Northern Ireland.

    As South Africa and recently Northern Ireland experiences seems to suggest what victims most commonly seek is vindication.They want public acknowledgement that what happened to them was wrong.They want the burden of shame lifted from their shoulders and placed where it belongs.

    Responsibility:

    It may seem almost natural when we see evil or crime in others; to try to correct it by destroying them or at least putting them out of sight. It is easy to identify the evil with the sinner when he is someone other than our own self. In ourselves, it is the other way round, we see evil but we have great difficulty in shouldering responsibility for it. We find it very hard to identify our sin with our own will and our own malice. We also tend to unconsciously ease ourselves more of the burden of guilt that is in us by passing it on to somebody else.The temptation is always to account for our faults by seeing equivalent amount of evil in others. Hence minimizing our own evil and compensating for doing so by exaggerating the faults of others.

    Experience shows we make the situation much worse by artificially intensifying our sense of evil, and by increasing our propensity to feel guilt even for things which are not in themselves wrong. In all these we build up such an obsession with evil, both in ourselves and in others, that we waste all our mental energy trying to account for this evil, to punish it or to get rid of it in any way we can.We drive ourselves mad with our preoccupation and in the end there is no outlet left but violence. We have to destroy something or someone. By that time we have created for ourselves a perfect enemy, a scapegoat in whom we have invested all the evil in the world. He is the cause of every wrong, the source of conflict. If he can only be destroyed, conflict will cease, evil will be done with. There will be no more war (Saddam Hussein?).

    This kind of fictional thinking is especially dangerous when it supported by a whole elaborate pseudo-scientific structure of myths, like those which Marxists have adopted as their ersatz for religion. It is certainly no less dangerous when it operates in the vague, fluid, confused and unprincipled opportunism, which substitutes in the west for religion, for philosophy and even for mature thought, and in Africa for hero worshipping and tribalism.

    May be with a benefit of hindsight, we may understand why South Africans did not take the Iraq option; – to hang P.Botha, Adrian Vlok …(South Africa constitution does not provide for death penalty) But as my teacher reminded me recently, you know how people treat God by the way they treat their fellow humans.

    Malicious criticism
    Basically human nature is dominated by superstitious tendency to associate failure with dishonesty and guilt; failure being interpreted as punishment. Even if a man starts with good intentions, if he fails we tend to think he was somehow at fault, if he was not guilty, he was at least wrong and being wrong is something we have not yet learned to face with equanimity and understanding. We either condemn it with god-like disdain or forgive it with god-like condescension.We do not manage to accept it with human compassion, humility and identification. And we fail to see the one truth that would help us begin to solve; for example our ethical and political problems; that we are all more or less wrong, that we all are at fault, all limited and obstructed by our mixed motives, our self-deception, our greed, our self-righteousness and our tendency to aggressivity and hypocrisy.

    In our refusal to accept the partial good intentions of others and work with them we are unconsciously proclaiming our own malice, our own intolerance, our own lack of realism, our own ethical and political quackery as we all witnessed immediately after Kibaki’s arguments lost in the referendum.

    Perhaps in the end the first real step towards a solution would be a realistic acceptance of the fact that our political ideas are perhaps to a great extent illusion and fictions to which we cling out of motives that are not always perfectly honest; that because of this we prevent ourselves from seeing any good or any practicability in the political ideas of our enemies; which may of course be in many ways even more illusory and dishonest than our own. We shall never get anywhere unless we can accept the fact that politics is an inextricable tangle of good and evil motives in which, perhaps, the evil predominate, but one must continue to hope doggedly in what little good can still be found.

    But if we all acknowledge that we are all equally wrong or feel obliged to act only when we assume that we are in the right; all political actions will instantly be paralyzed. Wisdom reminds us the basis for valid political action can only be the recognition that the true solution to our problems is not accessible to any one isolated group or tribe but all of us must arrive at it by working together. May be, and maybe then, we would learn to emulate a true compassionate family of tribes and perhaps address the injustices that cause a small percentage of our people consume the vast majority of her resources while the vast majority live in poverty.

    This does not encourage the guilt-ridden thinking that it is sexy to be wrong in everything, because this is also an evasion of responsibility, for every form of oversimplification tends to make decisions ultimately meaningless. We must try and learn to accept ourselves, whether individually or collectively, not only as perfectly good or perfectly bad, but in our mysterious unaccountable mixture of good and evil. We have to stand by the modicum of good that is in us without exaggerating it. We have to defend our real rights because unless we respect our own rights we will certainly not respect the rights of others. But on the same time we have to recognize that we have willfully or otherwise trespassed on the rights of others and admit it not only as a result of self-examination, but when it is pointed out unexpectedly and perhaps not too gently, by someone else. These principles which I believe govern personal moral conduct, which make harmony possible in small social units like the family also apply in the wider area of the state.

    It is however, quite absurd in our present situation or in any other, to expect these principles to be universally accepted as the result of moral exhortations. There is very little hope that our country all of a sudden will be run according to them as a result of some hypothetical change of heart on the part of politicians. It is useless and even laughable to base political thought on the faint hope of a purely contingent and subjective moral illumination in the hearts of our politicians. It would also be sentimental folly to expect them to trust one another when they obviously cannot be trusted.

    But also let us not allow depressed, confused, pessimistic, cynical and apocalyptic-minded individuals or groups pollute a vision that the future of our nation is blessed by forces greater than any political agenda, tribal and political hegemony, political patronage and mystique power.

    Finally, we tend to think of power as when we are able to use verbs in the imperative mood and give orders. Jesus said no. And as Moses’ Bible mission reminds us, it is giving your life, in serving the weakest, the most vulnerable, that we discover true power.That is what we see with Dalai Lama, Gandhi, King, Mother Teresa and Mandela. These people extraordinarily spendthrifts made people’s knees turn into jelly fish. Yet people like Mandela do not have power in the conventional sense, neither was he a president of a particularly impressive country or military power, but the world recognizes his moral power. Even atheists know they are better people when they love than when they hate. We recognize and admire compassion and goodness. We believe that goodness should be triumphant all the time, which is part of why we sometimes despair. But then the question remains, why should we be upset when awful things happen if we did not believe that goodness should prevail?

    At the end true leaders are in politics or in any other leadership mission not for self-aggrandizement but for the sake of others. Their authenticity is reflected by their purity, cleanliness, gentleness, calmness, nonviolent, forgetful of themselves, detached and above all when they are humble and obedient to reason and grace.The perfect do not have to reflect on the details of their actions and deeds, neither do they need intelligentsia sycophancy.

    And none of us thinks we are wrong about anything?
    Ladies and Gentlemen our own APARTHEID, you be the judge.

    May the Almighty GOD bless Kenyans indeed and lead them into a soul searching and a reflective 2007.

  34. Well looking critically and even with facts on the ground why should we denie Hon. kalonzo a chance. After all we have all suffered under the previous regimes in our on ways including Hon. himself and our desire is to see change in our nation. Therefore lets ty a young blood and see what happens otherwise Gods will is the best for leadership comes from God. If its Gods desire for him to lead well and good and if not may be his time is coming otherwise sioni ubaya wowote kwa Hon kuwa kiongozi

  36. The best thing Kenyans should do now is to allow God lead them so that they may elect a God fearing person.I believe with all of my heart the favour of God is with ODM-K and out of the many presidential aspirants in ODM-K,God has already annointed one of them.Whether he’s Kalonzo or Raila,we shall take him with thanksgiving.The only mistake we should not do again is to look at people with the eyes of our tribes or little weaknesses that everyone has but we should look at our leaders in respect to God fearing,the qualities of leadership and the abilities/capabilities of the person.We should see beyond our tribes but the nation as a whole.God bless you all.Julius.a Kenyan but now resides in the netherlands.

  37. The Kalonzo Musyoka prersidential campaign team should be aware that the strong point that could see the man clinch the ODM nomination and eventually the presidency are his policies on Education. Just like Kibaki made it on the economy, Kalonzo should polish the Education Policy bit: He mentuioned Free Secondary Education and kenyans, friend and foe were all ears. Pick it from there! Work it! Free Secondary Education, College Loans, Higher Education Opportunities, Placement of teachers within Kenya and the East Africa Region, Library facilities, Early Childhood Education etc. That is what Kenyans are most interested in.
    These are easy lessons; did NARC not make it on the promise of Free Primary Education. Kalonzo Team, focus, roll your sleeves and lets get to hear this clearly and it should be soon.

    He doesn’t particularly look sincere in the eye of many Kenyans.

  40. I will actully vote any ODM-K aspirant who will win. but as per now i prefer Kalonzo who actully worked in the Corrupt Moi, and Kibaki regime and has come out corrupt free, he is the right choice. but should stop being coward and shaky let him stay put in ODM-K and we will vote him if nominated because we know they can work closely with Raila , Ruto, Mudavadi Balala and Uhuru. and as a GOD fearing man let him continue praying our country for a good leadership.

  41. plz note that after reading your comments on kalonzo i have realised that you are too negative on him,and like any other person in this we must respect the integrity one has.Actually kibaki has done nothing for this country despite free primary education and for which cater for through tax,there4 he should not bicker to tell kenyans he has done much to this poor country.he must address on this:
    (a)security
    (b)poverty
    (c)infrastructure
    with that i tell my friend kibaki to pack up and leave statehouse,otherwise ameshindwa na job.

  43. I think we should give kalonzo a chance like any other potential candidate.He has the qualities of a strong leader.He appears honest.Kibaki on the other hand is a conman.He selfishly tricked the other NARC members into nominating him for the presidency.After he got the seat he rubbished the team that brought him to power.
    The economy is performing well not because of his leadership but due to goodwill from kenyans due the mere fact that there was change.
    The best evaluation of kibaki’s performance can be seen in security ,road infrustructure and corruption.His performance is not any better than moi.

  44. I do not necessariy think that the writer’s arguments are reasons enough for one to make a bad president as much as they are true. However Kalonzo was a better candidate last general election than now. His chances were also better that time than today. His close assocaition with heathen people has led to his backlsliding. If you doubt source for clips from the media and you will see him dancing ndombolo and kilumi-ie dancing for worldly gods. He has also become very arrongant and can haul any kind of insults to anybody including the current president. If he can’t respect the president does he expect to be respected when he’s elected?

    The reasons why i say his cahnces have dwindled is because he has thus far proved to Christians, who had pledged to vote for him last time, that he was just pretending to be a born again Christian. For sure no born again Christian can dance for any other thing apart from God the father of Jesus Christ. It is therefore sealed that genuine christians who form a majority of voters will not vote for such a person. We have no problem with his qualities, track records, develoment agenda or what he has to offer to Kenyans. Our main concern is to have a president who will depend on God for guidance like David and Solomon. Prosperity such as was achieved during leadership of these two Kings of Israel will be definite if we have a truly born again Christian for president.

  45. kalonzo is dtermined to make the next president of this country and am here to support him for his work his doing. but he should be carefull of his endevours to make sure that what he promises he fulfills it. not just making nosise around and the end of the day nothing accomplished at all.
    in kenya today we need somebody who is focused to what is doing making our country good for habitation not like the current situation where there is insecurity and nothing is done by the government. now he has the qualities but let him come out with his vision on how to improve kenya then we will decide on which way to go.

  49. kalonzo like many presidential candidates belomgs to the podium tribe. while majority of us including you belongs to the terrence tribe of the poor. Kalonzo and his likes have one thing in common. richness all acquired through questionable deeds.
    did kalonzo and all other oppose the increase in mps salaries?
    did he than not know that kutui and its surrounding has water promlems? why didnt he propose to start borehole drilling in all the semi arid region with all the monies the mps increased for themselves?
    i have read all the opposes and proposes of kalonzo as an ideal presidential candidates but i have seen all dwelling on wthnicity and not factual facts. kalonzo like our present presedent belongs to the tribe of the haves, the tribe of the contestant, the tribe of fuel guzzlers, the tribe of have all and care less for the electorate.
    actually the only thing that we share with our presedential candidates is air and sawage. and not all for i believe you all i might be coming from the tribe of the flying toilets.

    Kenya will become a country when we shall elect our “own” who know how to be hungrly and the like.
    i wonder what kalonzo has done to his electorates for the last 20 years he has been a member of parliament
    nothing
    just moi scophancy!

  51. Comments made here, be they for or against ODM aka ODIUM or Narc-K also called Nark-Jasho are refreshing to me in one sense. That they reveal shared positions as well as shared ignorance (or is it idiocy?) Let me exemplify; Kalonzo for anyone with above average intelligence can discern that he is a marginal fellow who pursues cheap obsessions such as manucuring his hair to a fault. He is vain and fickle. In fact those who say he dabbles in high witchcraft capture his essence, the essence of a hollow man. Know who a hollow man is? Read the poem by T. Eliot that follows;

    The Hollow Men
    T. S. Eliot (1925)
    I
    We are the hollow men
    We are the stuffed men
    Leaning together
    Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
    Our dried voices, when
    We whisper together
    Are quiet and meaningless
    As wind in dry grass
    Or rats’ feet over broken glass
    In our dry cellar
    Shape without form, shade without colour,
    Paralysed force, gesture without motion;
    Those who have crossed
    With direct eyes, to death’s other Kingdom
    Remember us — if at all — not as lost
    Violent souls, but only
    As the hollow men
    The stuffed men.
    II
    Eyes I dare not meet in dreams
    In death’s dream kingdom
    These do not appear:
    There, the eyes are
    Sunlight on a broken column
    There, is a tree swinging
    And voices are
    In the wind’s singing
    More distant and more solemn
    Than a fading star.
    Let me be no nearer
    In death’s dream kingdom
    Let me also wear
    Such deliberate disguises
    Rat’s coat, crowskin, crossed staves
    In a field
    Behaving as the wind behaves
    No nearer —
    Not that final meeting
    In the twilight kingdom
    III
    This is the dead land
    This is cactus land
    Here the stone images
    Are raised, here they receive
    The supplication of a dead man’s hand
    Under the twinkle of a fading star.
    Is it like this
    In death’s other kingdom
    Waking alone
    At the hour when we are
    Trembling with tenderness
    Lips that would kiss
    Form prayers to broken stone.
    IV
    The eyes are not here
    There are no eyes here
    In this valley of dying stars
    In this hollow valley
    This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms
    In this last of meeting places
    We grope together
    And avoid speech
    Gathered on this beach of the tumid river
    Sightless, unless
    The eyes reappear
    As the perpetual star
    Multifoliate rose
    Of death’s twilight kingdom
    The hope only
    Of empty men.
    V
    Here we go round the prickly pear
    Prickly pear prickly pear
    Here we go round the prickly pear
    At five o’clock in the morning.
    Between the idea
    And the reality
    Between the motion
    And the act
    Falls the Shadow
    For Thine is the Kingdom
    Between the conception
    And the creation
    Between the emotion
    And the response
    Falls the Shadow
    Life is very long
    Between the desire
    And the spasm
    Between the potency
    And the existence
    Between the essence
    And the descent

    For Thine is the Kingdom

Kalonzo lakini pia natofautinan nawe unapomlinganisha na raisi Jakaya kikwete. jakaya anazo falsafa za nyerere ikiwa utamchunguza vizuri kwa maana hio sidhani kama ni kibaraka wa nchi za ki magharibi licha kuwa alikuwa waziri wa mambo ya nje kwa miaka kumi. tunafahamu sana vipi nyerere hakukubaliana na nchi za kimagharibi kwa unyonyaji wa raslimali za nchi za kiafrika.
    pili ukimya wa kibaki unavuka mipaka, raisi lazima awe msemaji wa wastani hasa panapoharibika jambo. huwezi kunyamaza huku nyumba yako inaungua moto. inanishangaza sana anaponyamaza kibaki anapo lazimika kuzungumza. swala kama ya Anglo leasing, ni swala nyeti amabayo alikwajibika kama raisi kutetea serikali yake ama kutoa kauli ya namna yoyote ile kuhusu swala hio. ukimya wa aina hii hauleti manufaa bali inamdhuru yeye kibaki kwa kushukiwa kuwa ni mhusika.

  55. I beleive kenyans know where they come from and should make the right judgement in the right time.Voting for Kalonzo is a nightmare, he served for 20yrs as a cabinet minister in a rotten regime who sacrifices people at nyayo house without trial.What has he done for kenyans? People should not hide behind the word of God pretending to be holy yet they fail to protect their citizens when there was a problem. Remember the clashes and many others.Let him wait for another 20yrs to begg for leadership by proving himself that he is a man of action which I beleive it will be a rough road for him.

  57. Try harder in 2012 for presidency, this time round and I find that people are focused on development issues and they want to vote for what they have seen, so they are voting the old man thus prepare well for 2012 and we are sure we will vote you in. You have really worked hard but sometimes you go astray, we are all Kenyans and when you send rousy youths to go and fight your counterpart its really shameful and that is how you lost votes and Kibaki overtook you. Please ask for msamaha from Kalembe, it potrays a picture of love for Kenyans. If not it has shown that you are a man who can make this country run hay wai in the future if you become president, and we get worried about it. Thus its always good to live like brothers and sisters in one nation if we want to see our nation grow. Thanks and be blessed as you do your campaigns.

Kalonzo is not anew person in the leadership of this country.Even now as i put down my sentiments,am sure people know him better probably than i do.What i would urge kenyans to do is for the betterment of this xty judge kalonzo fairly.He had every chance just like everybody else in the then kanu government to steal and enrich himself but chose not to.I see a man in him we can trust with leadership for the sake of uniting kenyans. Its time to choose acredible leader who is not quick to hit back like some leaders who are fond of rallying their tribes against others.However,i totally not concur with the aspect of majimboism.Kenya is not yet ready.

    Editorials
    Sports

    Guys carefully read these analysis and we watching

    With the acrimony in ODM-K, Raila should reconsider stand

    First let me say a few things about the decision by Julia Ojiambo and her LPK party to issue an ultimatum to ODM-K to either sort out the problems with the ODM-K election board or she and her party will quit ODM.

    I thought Ojiambo has been a class act in ODM-K. She has not been intimidated by her male colleagues and is involved a lot in ODM-K activities.

    In a party which has been accused of not having adequate representation and visibility for Kenyan women, she is an asset ODM-K needs.

    However her decision to issue “do this or I quit” ultimatum was a mistake and she should be humble enough to accept that criticism.

    Then we have William Ruto, Bill, as he is known to his friends with another group of 17 MPs from Rift Valley unleashing another threat of “do this and that” or we will explore other options.

    Kalonzo recently held his application fee, may be planning to start another party. Watching all these I ask myself one question: What would happen if Raila held a press conference tomorrow and announces, he has decided to quit the party and is exploring other options? Wouldn’t he be called names like a traitor, opportunist or power-hungry…..?

    Why do ODM-K leaders think they can use the newspapers to pass internal memos to each other? What happened to the numerous cell phones they have? Does Joe Nyagah need to teach them how to send text messages?

    If I was Raila I would seriously start exploring the possibility of actually working with Kibaki. Yes that is not a misread.

    This may sound outrageous to some people, but if the ODM-K is going to be another acrimonious Narc circus then let’s keep the Narc we have. Kibaki has done enough damage; he is not likely to do more.

    The two can work together and Kibaki can implement some of the ideas contained in Raila’s recently launched vision, address the tribalism issue and deliver the Katiba in six months.

    The Katiba issue is critical. The two main areas of contention are the powers bestowed on presidency, which is suffocating the nation and the issue of meaningful devolution.

    If the two opt to work together and let Kenyans sort those things in a democratic manner and they bring the referendum, this time on the same side with the masses, we will get our Constitution. After that the politicians can lock themselves in one room and fight for weeks just to feel better.

    One person who should support my idea is Prof Anyang’ Nyong’o. This patriotic and humble Kenyan who has been working his tail off to put ODM-K together has been subjected to endless abuse.

    Very few people in ODM-K can match Nyong’o’s credibility, integrity and his spotless record.

    What has Prof Nyong’o done to deserve insults from Kalonzo and Ruto? Really, why don’t they tell us what he is being accused of? What is going to happen when these people get power?

    Anyway after that Raila/Kibaki suggestion that may be perplexing to my friends and may also make some of my foes who worship Kibaki smile on both ends of their anatomy, let me get to the crux of what I think ails the great ODM-K which helped the nation to floor Kibaki at the historic referendum battle.

    The party has had their priorities misplaced and if they can’t get their act together, they will soon be losing a lot of support from Kenyans. They shouldn’t take Kenyans for granted and think our sole aim is to make one of them the president of Kenya.

    Some of the aspirants have read to us their vision and some of them look really good, but as long as it is premised on “me, the president” it will never work and they continue fighting and pretending it is democracy at work. We have heard that before with Narc.

    The ODM-K’s priority should be building a cohesive party and capturing the National Assembly by being the majority in the House, besides winning the presidency.

    So my first advice for ODM-K is to go back to the drawing board, not the election board. Make winning the House your priority and the issue should be how many seats each aspirant can help the party win. Then strategise on how to win on the battle zones because that is where the House will be won or lost. Once you get that started and you can start identifying potential candidates and set in a good system of nominations at the primaries.

    It is ironical that ODM-K which says it intends to reduce the powers of the presidency and implement the bulk of the Bomas model of parliamentary democracy, is investing so much energy and resources in capturing that office. In fact other than Raila and Ruto we don’t have a clear plan on Bomas from Kalonzo. Raila promised a new Constitution close to the Bomas Draft in six months. Ruto promised the same in his first year in office. We don’t know what Kalonzo thinks on the matter.

    If the party contenders are ready to destroy each other to win the presidency how can we trust that they will reduce those powers after fighting so hard for them?

    The other problem for ODM-K is the usual “government in waiting” syndrome. That is a sure killer for opposition parties. There is only one government. Don’t get caught up in the “government in waiting stuff. The problem with that is people begin to think all they need is the party ticket and they are safely home.

    If ODM-K wants to form the next government they are going to have to work really hard for it. That should be the right approach. It will also help them understand that everybody’s contribution however big or small is needed.

    Third, ODM-K aspirants have to stop telling us they will stay united when we can see the wrangling. Even if the unity was to come is not an end, it must be a means to achieving what Kenyans want – an end to Kibaki’s tribalism, stop corruption and give us our new Constitution. We are not asking for much.

    Lastly, ODM-K has to stop relying too much on the tribal math. Yes Kibaki has made a lot of communities across the nation mad with his overt tribalism and the fact that he does not even seem to care when people point it out to him.

    Kibaki’s political opponents are blessed with the fact that a lot of his closest allies are very arrogant and seem to wear the tribalism as a bad of honour. But one of the most important lessons in politics is that you don’t win because of your opponent’s weaknesses, you win because of your strength. It is like soccer. You have a superb team facing some mediocre team. But if you go there thinking the points are already in the bag, you may get your behind kicked.

    ODM-K should at least spare Kenyans the embarrassment of their wrangling especially now that the aspirants have intensified campaigns and are yet to submit their nomination papers.

    Kalonzo whining that Raila has said it is a race between him and Kibaki and urging the media not to report such things is ridiculous. It is like my five-year-old nephew making a stink because his brother said he is stronger than her.

    What are they going to do when they become presidents and some mischievous opposition leader says in a village baraza that they have more power than the president. Are they going to call the army to discipline the man. Please, wazalendo, don’t expose your supporters to unnecessary ridicule.

First of all, thankyou for this blog, it shows that what you have said it’s all about your searching and beliefs…Kalonzo was for a long period of time in the former government, not only as an MP, but also a minister many times, many politicians in that past government had many scadals of this and that kind, but despite of all that Kalonzo remained clean in that former government which was clouded by many scadals….like goldenbarg, etc..I give Kalonzo much credit for staying clean in all that period he was as a minister in the former government.I see Kalonzo as a polite and honest person and he is the right person to be the president of Kenya come general elections this year, 2007. Kalonzo be sure that many Kenyans wants you as their president, come December, 2007 I will vote for you as our presindent.

  65. Ingeniuty and contradictions does not get better than this! Raila sued Saitoti for complicity in the Goldengerg scandal, but when Saitoti’s values shifted in his favor, he ambraced him as a political ally to remove Moi and castigated Mudavadi for refusing to ditch Moi in his favor.Today Mudavadi and Ruto are his allies yet he tells us Mudavadi and Kalonzo are not reformers. NOW; if Raila is the true reformist he and his backers claim to be what is he doing in the same party with non-reformists? IF ONE of them wins the ODM presidential nominations, what agenda or platform is he going to campaign for them if he is really a team player? His ingenuity and emotional contradictions are taking him for a rough ride in a hummer, too rough to realize his colleagues in ODM are leading him into a self exposure. Raila may be his own political enemy.

  66. Dear KENYANS,

    Once ODM came into being many were convinced it was the right outfit to startleading Kenyans into full democracy and freedom.

    BUT in a nutshell I feel politicians have turned a
    viable mass movement(ODM) into a tribal bargaining
    forum. Some of the presidential candidates are in the
    race to demostrate how many loyal tribal sycophants
    stands behind them. Their value as leaders is
    predicated on the number of their loyal tribal sycophants
    they can deliver on the election day for the new
    masters.

    It is a fact, no one can save Kenya unless he is willing and committed to destroy tribalism, archaic stereotyping and urgently reform our laws and institutions, starting with the political institutions. I keep on waiting in vain for those who are demanding to participate in bulding Kenya; to recognize Kenya is being raped and destroyed right infront of our own eyes.

    It is impossible to build a bright future with
    politicians who are not willing to take risk simply
    for fear of not satisfying the often extreme feelings
    and self-defeatist narrow intersts of their
    constituencies. True,reformist leaders must be ready
    to compromise to accommodate and not being
    intransigent or assertive about their bottom line
    stances. Intransigence and ultimatums only lead to
    more antagonism.

    I have heard some misleading comparisons of our
    politicians to Mandela;-Of course Mandela is as human
    and African as they all come. BUT what makes him
    great? I had rare chances to accompany his delegations
    on several international summits at a close proximity
    between 1994 and 1996. While his sincerity, warmth,
    humility and integrity is not questionable, he is just
    like any other African leader, like Kalonzo,
    Kibaki and Raila,Moi,- Except in one major thing; –
    His ability to compromise and forgive and lead his
    people by example to forgive. Of course the characters
    of our African leaders, more than anything else makes
    him a SAINT. He also had the power to discern on international geopolitics,- a case in point the nuclear power he was to inherit; of course the western would not have wished a black man to inherit such power, and Mandela did not need that power either. Imagine letting a minister in his government to have veto powers? Botha, then minister incharge of minerals, who was in the GNU for the purpose of overseeing the removal of the nuclear power.

    Between the time he left prison to the time he
    retired, Mandela demostrated rare traits and common ones
    too; like ordering the shooting of Zulu demostrators
    headed to the ANC headquarters in Johannesburg and
    insteady of trying to conceal the truth, came out in
    the open and accepted giving orders contrary to his
    party’s advice. We also saw him snobbing and
    embarrassing De Klerk in public in spite of his
    humility and forgiving nature. His selflessness nature
    and a sense of timing is unparalleled in Africa;
    considering his wealth and leaving office after only
    serving for one term with no emotions or hangovers;-
    And what about Desmond Tutu, why is he respected and
    admired even when he gives unpalatable speeches and
    statements?

    It is his ability to express his emotions and ideas in
    a childlike demeanour and with sincererity. Tutu also
    knows he is good in what he does and expresses it
    without conceit and arrogance.

    The arrogance being displayed by some of ODM
    presidential candidates eminates from insecurity, and
    their attempts to demostrate their strength,
    popularity and reformists declarations are really the
    flip side of their insignificance feeling of
    weakness,unpopularity and non-reformists.

    I saw in ODM a structure and combination of a mission of redemptive politics and not wasteful and senseless as has been the cases before in Kenya. I and indeed any other human being, can tolerate suffering but cannot tolerate meaningless.

    There is evidence that one of the politicians in ODM
    is talented in recognizing and taking advantage of
    others’ hurts, betrayals and hates in conniving for
    fickle support for the sake of his drive for
    vindictiveness; AND there lies the woes of ODM. At the
    end what matters is what the politicians do, not what
    they say. NARC is a good lesson whose experience and
    legacy haunts ODM more than Kibaki.

    There is nothing to redeem the current ODM leadership; UNFORTUNATELY WE CAN ONLY WATCH AS THEY slide to SELF- DESTRUCTION.

  67. There is too much fuss over nothing. All the Presidential candidates including Kibaki are tribalist. Just look straight into the sitting MPs and show me one who is against a presidential candidate from his tribe, may be Tuju.

    We need one person in Kenya who will stand behind Kenyans and not behind his tribeskin.

    We need one man who will be acceptable in the eyes of Kenyans and will not seek tribal chieftain coalition in pursuit of presidency.

    Lastly, the sitting or future MPS may do Kenyans some justice by limiting the number of political parties to five. Do I hear someone say freedom of association. We need limited parties to cut-off opportunistist. Like FORD, Just wait & see emergency of ODM-K-Original,Asili,People, etc.

    God Bless Kenya.

  69. Kalonzo Musyoka is not only a kenyan hero but regionally and internationally is regarded as a good leader.He helped to establish a government in Somalia after Years of unrest and murder.The CPA of the nothern and southern Sudan has put hope in many frustrated citizens of sudan.A man who embraces diplomacy and solving issues amicably.He deserves to lead kenya for he is not tainted.Ready and polished for the job.

  71. Dear Kenyans after studying all the horses lined up for the presidential race, there is no doubt in my mind we need a stallion in the race. Therefore I offer myself as a candidate for the race on the following 5 points:-

    (a)The first business of my government will be to re-write and adopt a new constitution, incorporating a strict separation of powers, a bill of rights and a constitutional court and scrapping the posts of assistant ministers.

    (b)The new constitution shall re-establish federal government and an immediate review of the existing provincial boundaries in view of federalism (majimbo). CDF will become Federal Government Development Fund (FGDF); federal governments shall be headed by prime ministers and the central government by the president, his deputy and 11 ministers. Civil servants including permanent secretaries, electoral commission, commissions of inquiries and judiciary, security, intelligence and defence shall be appointed by Public Service Commission. Members of the PSC shall be appointed by the Parliament. The electorate shall have veto powers. People caught speaking tribal languages in major cities, towns and urban areas shall be fined heavily.

    (c)Newly elected MPs will only start receiving their salaries after the adoption of the new constitution.

    (d)Immediate review of salaries. All MPs and the executive and all political appointees will only earn newly structured minimum wages. The retirement age shall be 65 years for all Kenyans including politicians. No politician shall be elected into public office below the age of 50 and of course above 65. And no retired will be appointed into any public office or named envoys, because it is anti-employment creation policy. Politics shall cease to be a self enriching career but a public service and MPs titles of honour to be changed from Mheshimiwa to Mtumishi. As a rule MPs to ride bicycles to work and use public transport to visit their constituencies. MPs and Ministers on official duty to share pool vehicles. No private vehicles shall be allowed in official government businesses. Corruption shall be regarded as economic sabotage and shall be punished as serious economic crime. Due to HIV/Aids pandemic, adultery shall be regarded as an attempt to acquire weapons of mass destruction, therefore punishable. Clerics should never accompany female politicians unobserved; however 80million surveillance cameras (two per person) shall be installed all over the nation. Only Muslims shall be allowed to marry more than one wife. Rapists and child defilers shall be castrated.

    (e)The constitution shall limit political parties to no more than five, each with a distinct ideology and membership of not less than a million. Political Party leaders must be professional politicians from a recognized learning institution. Coalitions can only be formed after elections. A creation of a Political Regulatory Commission (PRC) to ensure strict adherence to party ideologies. (i) Political parties shall be de registered if they lose two members in defection; and (ii) politicians will be de registered if they defect twice; and (iii) Ksh.1 million defection fee to be paid to PRC. Clerics shall be banned from engaging in elective and active politics; however their rights to criticize shall be upheld. Smear campaigners shall be prosecuted. No defections during election year. Politics shall be strictly restricted in Parliament.

    Of course there are better stallions than this? However this will herald a new generation of politics; devoid of the political quackery of our generation. I am close to 60 which call for urgency in adopting of the new constitution before expiry of my mandate in one year after my election, and calling for a truly democratic election under the new constitution.

    The first three to second my candidacy will be the chairman, secretary and treasurer. The rest one million needed to second my candidacy will be live members of the party. Remember time is running out and Kenya needs a strong stallion to race against Kibaki, Raila Kalonzo, and Mudavadi. What do you think? Don’t I deserve to be told “Tosha” Ama?

  72. with no regrets to make, i wish to blow the whistle on what is likely to happen. the homeguards are keenly watching us as we fight sure that they are going to take us off guard and off go with the spoils again. These are the michukis, Karumes, nyachayes etc who were nowhere when we were singing ourlselves hoarse in the rainbow dance of 2002. this could be the last mistake we can make as a people because given a last chance these fellows will rape this country until it is barren knowing that it could be their last for the next 40+ years before they can even dream of coming back. the best thing is to swallow our tribal prides and come together for the sake of kenya. as to who is most suited we just need to pray hard and i am sure God will show us the way. otherwise kenya is a very beautiful country to be left to the wolfs. we definitely need a change if the ghosts of aglofleacing, arturs thugs, raids on media houses, thuggish first and second ladies, tribalism and nepotism, lack of teachers in our local schools leading to a drastic decline in academic standards, glaring regional imbalances, creating wealth for the minority extra rich from one region etc are to be kept away. God help kenya!!! AMEN!

  73. If Raila is going to Kisumu and he is being given the go ahead by his people to contest the presidency,why is it causing hullabo among the ODM fraternity that Kalonzo should not go to Machakos and get the same?Go it man you are our pointman.

  74. in response to your martin mules political ambitions, i am of the opinion that it is your democratic right to contest for any political position in this land as long you qualify to do so.

    i also think that you have articulated your polictical agenda very well, which are quite sensible [especialy those relating to gender issues].

    However, i think that your entry may be abit late. it is not easy to forget “the horses”, who have been on shouting march for long. “The stalion” can make it by joining one of the Orange camps and secure the coveted “mheshimiwa” title, as you warming your way into the hearts of kenyans.

    Alternative, begin a party, and recruit other stalions – then capitalize on slogan stalions tugutuke – and romp straight into the state house.

    Otherwise Raila ametulet down, imagine, he chickened out of ODMK -manifesting his orignal corwardice of Thika in 1995, i thought he matured to be able sustain some fight.

  75. AN OPEN LETTER TO RAILA ODINGA AND KALONZO MUSYOKA

    It is a very sorry state for Kenyans, because come January 2008,? there will weeping and mourning when Kibaki shall be crowned the President!

    The Luo community shall even more sorrowfull, they would be again robbed and left bitterly weeping for a lost and wasted opportunity.

    It defeats the logic to see well educated versed and quite experienced individuals behave like ignorant people. Raila and Kalonzo, would you rather see Kibaki and and mad Lucy go, or you rather want another 5 years of mayhem? There is no way we shall win with the ghettoized division into tribal outfit that is now pronounced. Kenyans won the referendum when we were united. For Mr. Musyoka or Raila to think that either shall win alone, is a big joke. Does any of you still remember when Mr. Moi ruled with only 28%! Mr Raila,Your greatest adversary is well alive and has aligned himself with Kibaki.

    Kalonzo Musyoka shall get the Kamba votes and Raila shall have all the Luo and half the Luyia votes. And perhaps half Kalenjin votes. The rest shall go to Kibaki. And by default ,He shall win the Presidency!

    The Kalonzo – Raila combination is a sure win, Not any other way. I am puzzled as to how can we win with the Mudavadi combination, when we know Mr. Mudavadi could not even get enough votes to win his own seat? enlighten me here! where shall votes come from,?to enable us to win the presidency?

    The selfish behaviour that is being paraded to Kenyans is disheartening, what is your priority? The Kenyans or individual glory? Is is not sad, that Moi and Kibaki shall play us like a fiddle and win over and over, even when the winning power is on our?hands and on our side!

    Without Kalonzo,Raila is saying bye to presidency. And so is Kalonzo Musyoka, without Raila. You are foolish to believe that you are going to win, by going it alone.

    Why would a potential presidential material, like you Mr. Musyoka,decide to commit a political suicide, when all you would have done was to be patient and wait to be crowned-come 2012. What you are doing now is burning all the future bridges, an act which a wise man can not afford to do. Time is on your side, why would you not wait.The people of Nyanza had great respect for you, but you are foolishly discarding the greatest asset and virtually cutting the cord and link that was to take you to Kenya’s presidency.

    Come January 2008, You shall be scratching your head and enviously watching Kibaki and Moi basking in glory. And all that before?Lucy opens her lips to lash out at you and Raila and all the loosers! who killed the golden goose!

    Wake up you all -Raila and Kalonzo Musyoka-we shall hold you responsible, if you fracture our power to win in December.? Seriouslly, if you never learnt the value of divide and conquer through the 24 years of Moi,s regime, then there shall never be a period when you can learn from anything!

  77. Mudhune, we dont change presidents for the sake of it

    i agree with your opinion that if Kalonzo and Raila had remained together, they would have won the presidency without doubt. the tribal arithmetic is fact behind the argument. that does not make things better than they are currently. the two men might lose the presidency for the same reason.

    anyway, i disagree with you that the two should join and work together for purpose of ascending to power one after the other. The arrangement you seem to sugest is that Kalonzo backs Raila who would later back him.

    i believe that since two belief that they can make it apart, and that their differences seem to be irriconcilable. let us see how the events turn out. After all kibaki also needs a second term, and so far things have worked.

  78. We have to compere Kalonzo with the other leaders, Raila has been able to control the whole of luo land, kibaki has done it well to control all the Kikuyus. what about Kalonzo? he is unable to control the kambas and sort out the differences within kambas, my quetion and my great worry is how will he manage to control the whole country given a chance if he cant control the kambas?

  79. Unless we are naive or gullible to the delight of the political mandarins, we all know the dynamics of the offshore business transactions. Politicians who are cheating us about repatriating looted public wealth know very well the looters are no longer as foolish as they used to be in the 60’s. Today they own secretive and coded offshore companies which bid, front and secure their stakes in major companies and corporates in the west and worldwide. Offshore business transactions makes it impossible to pin down the perpetrators and true owners of Anglo Leasing, Goldenberg and HALLO! Safaricom. Even the Americans cannot pin down OJ Simpson’s offshore accounts for the Goldmans. Think of the implications if Airbus, Barclays Bank, Daimler Crystler or even a major weapons manufacturer were to cancel some of their customers shareholding simply because they had looted their capital from an African country! Surely the solution lies somewhere else!

    And Moi maybe right that his support for Kibaki does not translate into protection, but like all the politicians who are desperate to be in the next government, realize they cannot outsource, neither have offshore protection for crimes against humanity and that their TJRC sabotage will eventually give birth to a tribunal court for crimes against humanity. So all they are saying is “we must be in a position to completely cover all our involvement and complicity evidence”

  81. Yes Bro, you are very mindful for our country. Kenyans should live above stage managed politics and look for leader(s) who are above reproach. The whole world knows of his (Kalonzo) integrity and diplomacy. Recently first lady Lucy confessed among the presidential candidates only one was corrupt free and he is worthy to lead this country. “Kalonzo keep up your good work and the Lord who sees in secret will reward you” Kenyas open up you eyes and see the doing of the Lord our God this is the time to have a president who confesses True faith in God and walks it.

  86. As people begin to age the gods employ corrupting tactics. They ultimately begin to look down on the children and the wisdom they recently understood:::
    They voluntarily turn their back on their opportunity to ascend and instead embrace evil.
    It’s not old people who go to heaven. Old people must come back because of the mistakes they’ve made throughout their lives. Children are the ones who have the opportunity to ascend.

    Children are discounted by adults in society. The gods corrupt people as they age, use trust-building tactics and soon adults view the children as ignorant, yet to understand the god’s system, and subsequently look down on the children. This is one of the most bitter, painful ironies the gods employ, for people consciously turn their back on and lose their opportunity to ascend::::
    Religions teach that old people to go to heaven when they die. They don’t. Old people are reincarnated. It’s the children who go to heaven.
    The wisdom the gods impart to children, either through their innocence/purity or religious-based educational pursuits are the gods sharing the truth with their most favored people::::It’s the children whom the gods teach the right way for it is the children who have a chance. For example, they teach children to have faith, for understanding the god’s geographical clues hurts people by illustrating negative things, opening the door for the god’s to employ deceptive tactics.
    Old people don’t go to heaven. Old people must come back because of the mistakes they’ve made throughout their lives. It’s the children who have the opportunity to go to “heaven”. They must behave apprioriately, think correctly and be genuinely god-fearing. Their innocence and lack of desensitization ensures they have a real opportunity to achieve this goal.

    This is charecteristic of the gods methodology::::The big prize gone early, compelling people to chase something that already has been decided. They sent this clue with boss as well. It is also a clue supporting my claim RW&B’s german is in fact Christianity’s Anti-Christ. Logic also dictates, considering the definition.
