Well, ever since the handshake and the start of the Building Bridges Initiative between Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta. We have with time, seen how fluid the political parties and the political figures both in the Jubilee Party and the National Super Alliance (NASA). Where we have seen them all trying to configure and make new beginnings.
Today, its more evident, as the most high ranking official of Jubilee, the Secretary General Raphael Tuju, the loyalist and the brain behind lots of campaigns in the Jubilee Party are now starting to work directly for the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) and Odinga himself. This being the man, defending Kenyatta and Ruto at any cost during the Fresh Presidential Elections. Dismissing the judgement of annulling the first elections in 2017 and so on. Therefore, that Tuju does this, is as significant to Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka, the NASA Co-Principal taking the Special Envoy to South Sudan.
They are all just figuring out ways to eat, they don’t care if they are opposition or not. They don’t care about policy or about development. This isn’t simple politicking. Now, this is even simpler Math.
This equation is based on one vital component. That being POWER. If it wasn’t for power and prestige. If it wasn’t for the opportunity to get a cut, get some ends. They wouldn’t move like this and give way to principals. That is why Odinga is praising Huduma Namba scheme, working on the Big Four and whatnot. While Kenyatta is grinning even bigger with Odinga, than with his partner in crime Ruto.
Seriously, this is the time and day, when the Jubilee Party and the ODM is merging. They are becoming alike. There is no difference between them, they have various leaders around the Republic. But what is their values if they are just bouncing around and taking key-positions and awaiting their turn to sit in the big-seat?
Its like the initial imprint of it, its out turn to eat. It doesn’t matter how or by what means, but as long as we eat. Were good and we get the food, eat and sleep better afterwards.
The BBI and the handshake made this happen. It has ensured Odinga and ODM, but also peacefully made Kenyatta untouchable. Because, the compromised opposition is in bed with him. That is why there is no issues that Odinga gets Tuju or anyone else to prepare for the next election. Who cares right? They are all the same. There is no difference. They are all just figuring out their next move to eat.
Surely, Musalia Mudavadi feels left out and the same does Moses Wetangula, but they didn’t suck-up to Kenyatta. They didn’t kiss the ring like Kalonzo. If they did, he would have given them an office and paid-them-in-full. Alas, that is not the case.
The man, whose the Secretary without a portfolio in the Cabinet, the man whose the Secretary General of the ruling party, now turned to ODM and NASA. If that isn’t sensational. Nothing is. Because, this shows how fluid the situation and politics is, when someone like Tuju can become the advisor of Odinga and become a strategist of NASA/ODM. Surely, this must be a blow for the ones campaigning for Jubilee in 2022. Peace.
