This excerpt is lifted from this article in the daily nation
Now this is wrong in so many areas but lets examine a few truths
a) The first batch of ODM rebels left ODM because of what they cited as lack of democratic space. So now my question is, who decided who is president, deputy etc in this so called (yet again) newly formed alliance (this alliance is recreated anew each and everytime these fellows meet)
b) ruto, mudavadi, wamalwa etc all claimed they want nothing other than the top seat and will not play second fiddle to anyone. well reality is they can be nothing and whoever actually gives them a chance at the No.2 slot is actually doing them a favor and rescuing them from political oblivion considering that its president or bust
c) As has been asked elsewhere many times, why do these guys want to sell their support base so cheap, why is their support base so blind to reality.
The G7 is in this for G7 and not for country. The one and only mission for these guys is to be president and lock out Raila. Nothing else. Once these guys are in power, implementing the new constitution will be so corrupted, completely diluted and made even worse than it is already. Imagine any of these guys enacting any law that jeopardises their positions, look at what they have done with the Integrity bill, what do we expect in future? How can we elect any of these G7 guys which is doing the same over and over expecting a different outcome? Who is really that daft, to elect the two guys who are suspected to have masterminded the PEV, and expect any different?
But my pity goes to the flower girls in the entourage, for even remotely entertaining the fantasy that they had a genuine chance in the G7 party. I wonder what’s the plan B for those who thought they’d be running mates to these guys e.g Mwakwere and others
These guys have been running around the country saying that they do not want boardroom deals. Well what can I say, when have these guys ever met their constituents and given them a chance to elect office bearers? What a charade
And of course this story would not be complete without this footnote
