President Kenyatta revealed because of the shambolic Jubilee Primaries (that the State House is the Jubilee Headquarters!)

That the Jubilee Party are resembling the National Resistance Movement is clear as day after yesterdays Primary approach. That the unity of 14 parties into one structure wouldn’t be easy, as there as so many up for the tickets from the old parties, that it cannot go without some old local chief getting caught in the wind. Therefore, the acts of the party and the violence yesterday proves the misconception that the President and his Deputy had.

That Uhuru Kenyatta thought it would be an easy excise with splendor and grandeur, show up with puff-pieces in the Standard Digital and Daily Nation today. That the Jubilee printed more T-Shirts than ballots paper says enough. As well as the massive amounts of pre-ticket ballot in Eldoret. Therefore, the death of two persons and a candidate in the hospital bed. Says it all about the progression of party building.

Mr. President it is to make PR campaigns, fabricate a few photo sessions on the State House lawns, but get the people engage with a fair approach, takes courage and tact, and all civil education. The civility wasn’t shown by the party, as the party seemed to deem the results of handpicked men and woman. Who was in advanced trickled down, as the arrangement between the 14 parties had to emerge in the exercise, therefore the result of violence and tear-gas had to occur.

So that the exercise in 21 districts failed yesterday is clear, as the Jubilee wasn’t prepared and didn’t think of the local implications of the merger. That the local leadership combined with the cartels and the public itself. That they thought they could scam through the process and trade the goods without even prepping the material. Raphael Tuju was adamant that the process couldn’t be rigged, but the pictures of pre-ticked ballots, proves otherwise. Sort of like setting up signs in shops. “we do not sell alcohol beverage to drunk people” and than looking at the cashier selling vodka-infused soda to teenagers on late Friday night. Sort of my way of saying kudos to Jubilee’s own Tuju and his promises.

Clearly, the Jubilee didn’t anticipate their hazard and this acts of violence, that the community would go off on all cylinders during their elections. They we’re prepared to mock the opposition parties and their primaries, as their should be easy and a serious walkover. Instead, the show of contempt and disbelief as the party had to suspend the primaries as well. This is not a good look, when the ruling party and ruling regime cannot elect inside their own party. Than, how can we trust the same men with conducting a national election?

That Deputy President William Ruto is now preparing for Primaries on Monday and Tuesday next week isn’t assuring, they should have configured this long time ago. When the 14 parties went into a pact to become one single unit. To not be different structures, but one.

To top it off this tweet came today from Kenyatta: ”I gave a statement on the shambolic #JubileePrimaries at the new Jubilee Party headquarters in State House, Nairobi” (Kenyatta, 22.04.2017).

So that the DP Ruto and Kenyatta now takes it serious is clear, but it cannot be correct that the Jubilee Headquarters is at the State House. The State and Jubilee party, shouldn’t that be to separate entities, as the other parties should be able to use the State House, not only Jubilee. Therefore, the careless and reckless behavior of Kenyatta comes to the forefront, at he disrespect the State House in the name of Jubilee, just as he has done with the other functions of Jubilee. So the President clearly doesn’t consider the ethical implications of his maladministration.

Maladministration is the reason for the yesterday fiasco and failure to conduct primaries. Where ballot papers are burned, where there is riots and where there is violence in the streets. Something that shouldn’t happen in this and age. That the President thinks that his own people is so stupid to see this blatant disregard of public institutions and the public offices. Since the misuse of State House is just a drop of water in the cup.

That Kenyatta himself is stating that the Primaries was shambolic proves at least that he understand the implication and the view of the process. As the pre-ticked ballots and violence wasn’t what a ruling party and a united front should show to the world. Instead, that is what they did and they did not do it properly. What it seems like is that they thought the public wouldn’t mind if they handpicked the candidates for them and the ones decided in the chambers of the State House. Since the State House is the new Jubilee Party Headquarter.

We can wonder else the President will reveal of how Jubilee conduct their affairs and how much they are integrated into the state. So that they will fight harder and use all sort of tricks to keep the portfolio and control of the state, even after the August 2017 election. Peace.

Opinion: DP Ruto misplace the NASA’s will to seek power as he thinks it automatically Jubilee’s to keep!

kenyas-deputy-president-william-ruto-addresses-prayer-service.

If the Deputy President William Ruto was surer of proof of leading and delivering results in the Jubilee government, except if the Jubilee government would see their share of international loans to fill the fiscal funding of the running expenses. Because very few of the promises in the last election has been uphold as the doctors are on strike, running scandals of corruption and issues with the army in Somalia. It is not like the government looks like a well-run machine without any defaults.

Therefore his retort of the news of the official launch of NASA says a lot of the man:

“He said that unlike the Jubilee Party, which he said is keen on developing the country and had the interests of Kenyans at heart, Nasa is only keen on sharing positions” (…) “The difference between Jubilee and the opposition is as clear as day and night. While Jubilee is for [the] development of the country, our competitors are only good [at] empty rhetoric and organising demonstrations,” he said” (Barasa, 2017).

So the reality of the matter is that CORD or NASA has demonstrated and heavy, but it wouldn’t be needed if the Kenyan Government or the Jubilee had showed other ways of expressing their dialogue. This coming from a government official, that needed guards, so they could close the session of amending the electoral laws before this coming election.

DP Ruto is forgetting how he came to power together with President Uhuru Kenyatta. Instead he has to shuffle dirt on the NASA alliance, because he knows that if you just start to dig the surface of the achievement under the Jubilee Alliance you will find skeletons of cartels, mafia and even deep big-corruption. That is been showed too often, that even ghost companies cleaning the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) is an ordinary scandal and not shocking. It would be shocking if the existence of all corporations and agreements between the state and private was actually clean.

There are too many players feeding of the state funds and the borrowed fiscal cash during the Jubilee government. That is well-known and should be that easy to state, but it is it. Like a fish out of water to say it is differently. The Jubilee have thrived on the funds and even groomed the businesses owned by government officials. They haven’t been building stronger institutions, but instead looked for ways to elevate funds out of state coffers. To find honest working key state officials is close to finding penguins in Eldoret or Mombasa. Good luck on your duck-hunt!

That Deputy President Ruto has grievances with Cord/NASA is understandable as they have demonstrated and swayed government on the IEBC and other positions. That must hurt the pride of the head honcho of the prominence of Ruto. Ruto cannot hold his own mantle and shed light on the promises of 2013 as that would hit the people of the significant lacking deliverance of his alliance and parties. The only thing they have done is to keep the upkeep of the alliance and not done anything close to their mountains of promises.

Therefore he has to sigh the utter words of the only point of NASA is the dream of “Power”, the power and reign that is kept by his people, that Power that Ruto and his cliché want to keep by any means. Therefore throwing shade from the glorious place and from the high-power place seems a bit of a stretch. If it was a CSO or a think-tank addressing it, it would be more significant and more of honest approach, but seems Jubilee and NASA are two of the same coin. The one running the ship and the other hoping to take over!

Seems a bit wrong that the Deputy President William Ruto fears the NASA and their only wish is the reach of power, not to govern or do better job than the Jubilee. As Jubilee we’re supposed to do a better job than Mwai Kibaki, therefore the trying of Cord last time was weaken by circumstances.

Therefore, Ruto and his comrades better smarten up, they are high up in the sky and could easily be taken down. Though by they having power they can lose an election if the Cord/NASA shed real lights on the matter and on the scandals. That they go all out and share the information and paperwork on the issues. If so the Jubilee better think twice before they blink twice. Since Deputy Ruto in power should fiercely shed lights on what he has achieved.

So instead of giving blame to NASA, Ruto should show the perspective of their work instead of telling of CORD/NASA before they even said ‘hello’. The reality of the matter and of the justification is not there, as the man targeting the alliance, NASA, shouldn’t be the focus of Jubilee. Jubilee should be better, but you cannot expect anything else. Since the Jubilee has more focused on eating, than actually delivering! Peace.
