“A new Kenya is signaling. You will see things happening. We are only waiting for members of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) and then President Uhuru Kenyatta and myself will give direction on the impending referendum” – Raila Odinga on the 11th May 2019
Well, you can do a trick once, but not do it twice and get away with it. Especially if it is a rouse. In this manner, the Opposition Leader turned unofficial Prime Minister Raila Odinga have overstepped his boundaries. He is now promising Canaan reloaded, Canaan 2.0 or whatever version you will call it and label it the “New Kenya”, like the promises of late, where he would people to Canaan. This cannot go now.
The leader is besieged and he cannot win, that because he sworn himself in as the Second President after the Fresh Presidential Elections in 2017 and since then sold himself on the alter of the Building Bridges Initiative, where he is securing himself and his party, but not the pledges of getting people to Canaan. Unless, your the elite and the cartels supporting Jubilee, than your saved from the hurdles of life and even Huduma Namba.
The rest awaiting in oblivion and not seeing hope, that is why even activists getting detained and people are getting killed without any concern. The government continues and moves on, they are appointing cronies to state owned corporations and boards like there is no tomorrow. They are busy eating, while the public is starving.
Therefore, it is rich that Odinga now promises a “New Kenya”, when he promised a Canaan for so long. Surely, he went to greener pastures and left the Republic behind. Left the victims of his resistance and his acts against the government, until the famous handshake. A handshake that secured his future and his party future, but not the public. That is why he has to give another rouse.
He has to offer something new to blind the masses and hope that people get caught into it. There will be now “New Kenya” like there was no Canaan. Except if you are one of the ones who has gotten ill-gotten wealth during the time of Jubilee.
The will be roads made of gold, there will be no golden age and not serviceable government, the elite and the politicians are busy finding ways to eat, not to treat or even ensure the citizens are taken care off. Because their first job is to get taken care off themselves. This is shown, again and again.
Odinga is just one of them and shown it with force this time. You cannot pull a rabbit out of the hat twice, sooner or later the trick will be revealed and how you hidden the animal. That is now obvious and there is no way out for ODM leader. Peace.
