I do not know why Uhuru and Ruto would want so much to see Raila out of local politics. It is intimidating to hear from the duo that they can only offer Raila the position of a roving ambassador to join the Panel of African Eminent Persons which includes former Presidents Joachim Chissano of Mozambique and Benjamin Mkapa of Tanzania if he quits local politics!
The question is this: why is the duo not considering Moi and Kibaki for the same position? Are these not the senior most personalities in Kenya at the moment vis-a-vis Raila?
What a shame that the very two amigos who stole Raila’s victory in the last elections should be the same ones pushing Raila out of local politics citing such a mundane reason like:
“his experience and international connections could be put to good use to advance the national interest.”
Since when did they realise that Raila has got such a quality? Did they not tell us that Raila has got nothing new to offer Kenyas but ‘vitendawili’?
For how long must a man be kicked in the teeth by selfish people like Uhuru, Ruto and their cabals?
Raila, if you are going to take that offer please do so in your own terms! And remember, we your supporters are watching!
There is no way thieves can raid your home and ask for your help on what you need to eat in your house in order for them to survive their onslaught in your home for their own good! That is simply fake. They are gonna kill you anyway at their own time. So, simply go on hunger strike and die on your own two feet than on your knees begging.
People gotta know people!
