“I don’t think it is the duty of the President to fire anybody, this was a State of the Nation Address for him to say what in his view the nation was doing, and I think in that regard he did very well in highlighting key issues affecting the lives of Kenyans” – Raila Odinga’s Defense of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s State of the Nation Address (04.04.2019).
Well, the Building Bridges Initiative and the Handshake between ODM Leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta is surely paying off. As all the ones in the Opposition are highlighting things like they were state officials. If they were Musalia Mudavadi, Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka or Raila Odinga himself. They were all loyal subjects of the Republic.
Especially, showing this today… was the former Presidential Candidate, the NASA Leader and former CORD leader too. He was on fire defending Kenyatta and his administration. In a manner, that only Murkomen cannot do it better. Today, he could have switched parties and become a Jubilee syncopate. There would be no different really.
What Odinga said today and what his peers did too. Shows that the ODM and the rest of the Opposition are an obvious elite, whose has interests in the state and eating themselves. They are not interested in the Kenyan people or their plights. That they are only interested in and invested in during elections, but the rest of the time. They want to be connected to the good graces of the State House. So, they can eat as well.
Odinga could have been any minister in the Jubilee Cabinet today. Any sort of Cabinet Secretary or a Prime Minister in coalition government, because, he is directly supporting the President with no effort. In a manner, that is unnatural and obliviously showing his intention.
The Handshake has offered him a role and his now playing it out. The ODM leader is clearly seeking favours and showing loyalty. Instead of being genuine and sincere. Because, this is the busy eating politician. Nothing else really. It is his turn to eat again. He has made himself an office on the cost of the handshake and is now showing a token of appreciation of it.
If, you believe the NASA is a reliable opposition. Today, they have shown their true face. Some has turned before, like Kalonzo and I said by the Handshake, that Canaan had ended. Because, Odinga came to Canaan. However, the public did not. Just the hungry elite, eating of the plate of everyone else. Peace.
