Kenya’s Political Mill of Betrayals
Betrayal calls surrounding Kibaki’s succession were recently triggered by Kangundo MP, Johnstone Muthama, who revealed publicly that Kibaki betrayed Kalonzo over an MOU the two signed in January 2008. State House was quick to publicly rubbish existence of any succession MoU with Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka – going to the extent of forcing Kalonzo to lie about existence of any such thing.
With Muthama vowing to “teach the ruling Mt. Kenya mafia a lesson” by mobilizing communal support against another Mt. Kenya candidacy, it appears State House has been jolted enough to revisit this matter – this time more aggressively.
It appears someone has unleashed propagandist scribes to start rewriting the clear history of perennial betrayals. It is now being claimed that no such political betrayal has occurred since Kenya’s history….no history of President Kenyatta ever betraying Jaramogi upon ascending to power…no history of President Kibaki betraying Raila upon getting to power…and no history of President Kibaki betraying Kalonzo upon a forceful (& bloody) hang onto power…
Knowing well that the ‘habitual betrayal’ theme may catch steam during the presidential run-off campaign…rallying a nation against this ‘selfish habit’…obfuscation and history re-writing has hereby commenced (see article below).
As expected, this elite’s mouthpiece – Peter Kagwanja has unleashed the first penning…hoping that a gullible nation buys this Kool-aid of lies and revisionism.
