Opinion: Odinga is not cornered, but has to show a plan to dismantle the Jubilee with peaceful means!
People are underestimating Raila Odinga and the rest of the National Super Alliance, even as the results of 26th October and the verdict in the Supreme Court of 20th November 2017. If it had been a real election and victory, there would be celebration everywhere and not a sort of tension. Where the NASA has to ask for calm among their supporters and ask for time address the matter.
While Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto are preparing for the 28th November 2017 and their swearing-in for the second term. We can wonder if they really believes in this victory, as they have not come strong forward or even proclaimed themselves like winners do. That Ruto celebrated a hot-minute on Twitter, which shouldn’t count, unless your related to Donald Trump.
That Kenyatta and Ruto should feel uneasy is because after the October Elections, the companies that the NASA has boycotted have felt a pitch and even rebranded Brookside Milk to Tusky’s when trying to sell it. Clearly, the NASA shows their power and their base within Kenya. That the recent elections are not trustworthy. As IEBC had to seconds after the verdict release a statement, that they are a organization who is capable of running elections. Even if evidence says otherwise, even if that wasn’t produced to court or with merit.
Odinga, Kalonzo Mysoka, Mudavadi and Orengo has to show their force and their resistance, their defiance and not compliance to the state. Since this state is rigged against them and fitted for Kenyatta. This is proven, again and again. The rules are set for NASA, but Jubilee can do the same and it doesn’t matter. If NASA demonstrate, Police Brutality appears, Jubilee demonstrate and the police are bystanders. It is two different worlds of two different set of rules.
We know that Kenyatta didn’t win this, even if he is announced and sworn-in. He knows it too, if not he wouldn’t need to quell dissenters with bullets and tear-gas. Because he knows he is illegitimate and the ones appearing on his day will be dictators and the foreign envoys of doom. The party will be fake and forgery, just like the election.
This is all well-known and don’t even need consideration. Odinga and NASA needs to find out more ways to hurt and show the weakness of the regime. Show them their own game and play out their hands. They will later lose it and show their hand. Than the NASA can overcome this rigged botched election. Where nothing was right and the Supreme Court was in the end intimidated. In the end the whole system was rigged as the IEBC had to fix the voter turnout to give him decent numbers in the polls. Even if the real turnout was much less.
We just have to see what is their next move, as the Jubilee Administration are going all haywire in violence, intimidation and ruthless acts of Moi era into the future. That is why Kenyatta is asking advice from Moi as well. They are not wishing of showing good values and deeds. Just to own the republic. Not respecting the real will and be honest about it. These two leaders has no scruples to stay in power and also secure their future.
Therefore, NASA and Odinga has to move, have to act and show civil disobedience and their will to hurt by boycott and not being compliance to the rigged system run by Jubilee. Peace.
