Opinion: The long walk for Odinga continues, as it is still hope for him to reach Canaan!
There has been doubts and with history in mind, there is enough justification. There is enough burned down bridges, which has now disappeared into hopelessness, but today there was something significant that appeared. The Supreme Court of Kenya annulled the fraudulent and fake tally of the Presidential Election and the result giving incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta a second term. Surely, the ones celebrating and honoring the man must feel foolish today, especially the likes of Pierre Nkurunziza who has celebrated Kenyatta twice in August.
Well, the Jubilee and the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) must feel heartbroken today; the token of their misfortune, the level of electoral fraud was verified. The results that gave the President another go, was not up to the level of the Constitution and the laws for elections. This must be a defeat and a victory for justice.
That the National Super Alliance (NASA) can celebrate today is so right, the reports given to the Supreme Court of activity without any consideration of the implications, shows by all errors and planned rigging that the Jubilee and Kenyatta was bound to win. The numbers, the systematic operations of forging forms and numbers on the public portal, was in question early on and is now proven to be true.
The questions of hacking, of illegal operations that was made to count in favor of Jubilee, is now also open to the market. It is not talk anymore, but verified by court. The petition victory has signaled that James Orengo and the NASA team was right. There was many grave issues and insults to democracy, to the public and their votes. The ballots was not counted and taken care of, they were insulted and extended grave misconduct in favor of Kenyatta.
This has now been overturned and give way to new polls within 60 days. Hope someone trustworthy and someone who has the capacity to run sufficient elections can run it. Someone who want to be transparent and Nobel in request of justice for every ballot. What is worse is that all international observers was saying that the elections was free and fair. However, the national and own republic’s Supreme Court said that was a lie today. The ones that was in Kenya in August, had better not arrive back in October, there lies has now been proven to the whole world.
We can only hope the just results and the ballots are respected in the second round K.O. That also Odinga who didn’t cheat gets his chance of getting to Canaan. The respect of the voters and their ballot is vital. That didn’t happen at the first round of Presidential Election in August 2017. I hope that that can happen now. There are many questions remaining, who ordered the results and who would really enjoy spoils, other than Kenyatta and his Party. Who would earn fortunes on the blatantly disregard of the people’s will?
Because they should pay for the forged attempt of thieving the republic! The victory might be in vain, if the same sort of people get to put their cards into play in the second round. We got to hope, but even as the deck is stacked on the table. There are still to this day enough actors at play, who can forge and play foul. When they have already tried once, they might try twice, especially if they do not pay for their acts against the law. Peace.
