Opinion: Azimio moved the goal-post, yet again…

We are seeing a stalemate between the Azimio la Umoja and the Kenya Kwanza government. That is obvious after an ultimate was put forward yesterday by Azimio and the Kenya Kwanza isn’t responding to the call. That is actually within reason.

Azimio is now, yet again moving the goal-post. They are moving the Bipartisan Committee or dialogue to another level. The Azimio is taking stocks into new matters and within reach of how Kenya Kwanza is governing. That is being done before the dust is settled and the people are talking about previous stipulated negotiations. Therefore, Azimio is putting their finger in the cookie jar and hoping to capture a flavour one to have beside their tea.

Well, I am not shocked or appalled. This is something Raila Odinga has done countless of times. He is fighting for one cause and jumping to the next. That is being done before settling and even finishing of the old one. We are just supposed to forget about the servers, the supposed victory in the last election and the cost-of-living crisis. Now it is a Financial Bill and Azimio wants a say in it.

That Odinga and Azimio wants a say is natural. Who doesn’t right?

Everyone wants a say and a little bit of power. Instead of trying to create goodwill and not hoodwink people. The Azimio is in one minute stopping demonstrations and 24 hours later proclaiming the “mothers of demonstrations”. That’s done for various of reasons and dogmas taken out of thin air.

I am just waiting for the tears of lion. That is needed and this isn’t clever. Odinga is trying a same old routine and hoping for the long-con. Because, this cannot be done for a short-con and a bargain. No, this has to be done for a moment of brilliance and a big pay-off.

Azimio cannot bicker back-and-fourth thinking that is good vibes. Neither is the Republic in a better state either out of it. One week there is rampant protest and the next it’s “mediocre” peace awaiting a handshake and a kiss of the ring.

Certainly, the Azimio is blaming the government and Ruto. That is to be expected. They are pinning him to the wall and blaming him for the sunshine and the rain. This is expected and what they do. The Azimio will not be content about anything. They will only be happy when they are getting their cut or their titles. Until then…

Azimio and Odinga will move the goal-post and not settle. They are not even trying to resolve the previous matters or the reasons for the demonstrations earlier in the year. No, they are forgetting those and instead wanting a say on a whole other matter. That is being put forward on display and they don’t expect any push-back.

Seriously, the Azimio team in the Bipartisan Dialogue cannot be seen as sincere. They only did it for cheap credibility and look they did something. Because using their platform and means like this is only a fault-line. There is nothing to gain or win here now.

Azimio is running on vibes and they cannot stop the reggae…. Peace.
