The Building Bridge Initiative for National Unity Task Force, who has gotten appointed twice and made the opposition party Orange Democratic Movement semi-governmental party and in alliance with the President. Kenyatta and Odinga made peace with the handshake. They bought time, especially the President bought time. He has secured to disfranchise all opposition and destroy NASA.
Kenyatta won first the legitimacy buy trading some titles and shillings the way of Odinga. Just giving him a sort of semi-government agency and task-force. Which is neither mandated nor within the Big Four Programme. However, it is a political buyout and it has paid off.
Kenyatta have had the opportunity to purge on the ones whose not been real. He has impeached and gotten rid of disloyal within own ranks. He has resolved the ones who are there for the Deputy President and put in his own people in the same roles. The Tanga Tanga part of Jubilee have become more an opposition, than the supposed opposition parties itself.
The ODM could have done the same as KANU. Just signed a coalition deal, which it sort of did with the BBI. The BBI was a very cheap deal for the President. He have given small tokens and carrots. Promises of empty pledges, but getting everything his way. Because, Odinga will not dissolve this and loose the BBI. That is his baby, even if it never grows old.
Odinga cannot loose BBI now. His synonymous with it after leaving Canaan behind. Raila aka Baba decided to do so for own personal gains. It is not like the BBI Report have delivered anything. Not like any or the BBI rallies have served the public and not like the ODM have touched the IEBC.
No, Odinga is not winning and his only a bargain chip politically. He sold his charisma and his stances for the BBI. Kenyatta have both Moi, Kalonzo and Odinga in his pocket. Secondly, his weakening the Tanga Tanga and Ruto along the way. It is just like all pieces of the puzzle is just buzzing around and wondering what is the next move of Uhuru.
Uhuru is allowed to do everything. He gives small pieces of silver and gets gold. He did a handshake and bought himself all the time in the world. Odinga got a became a sort of high ranking official, but really his not. Because, if his not loyal to the President. He might just disband the BBI and then his totally lost.
He then got a minority in the Parliament and in the Counties. The man doesn’t have the power or the reach. Baba is supposed to be so smart, but with BBI have been played. His neither here nor there. He will not win and it is just a matter of fact at this point. Odinga will not say that, neither will his party. However, everyone with a working mind will see that.
This was all just a winning stroke of the pen for the President. He gave, little to nothing and gave himself time. No real opposition, paid of the ones kicking and screaming. Got rid of the ones who could make him look weak or questioned in Parliament. Even ensure the ODM would play ball to save their prestige. Clearly, that is working and time for 2022 is ticking.
ODM and KANU are in the same battle, they are both in coalition with Kenyatta. They are both the same sort of entangled twin. While ODM is supposed to be opposition, KANU is a government party. While Kalonzo tags along and the saga continues.
The only winner here is Uhuru. He got everyone for bargains, while he can do his schemes without any issues. Lives moves on and the power corrupts. Nothing new under the sun, only more ways for the President to get everyone dancing to his tune. Peace.
