Well, President Uhuru Kenyatta is really on mission to show his power and arrogance to the world, as the Supreme Court verified their results and he was sworn-in after a botched election in October 2017. That is why he is so aggressive against the National Super Alliance (NASA) and their leadership. He cannot handle his unpopularity and his own track-record. That is why he is speaking of development, since their been little or none, compared to the amount of scandals in the first term. The start of the second term has already been rocky, even before trying to pull any legislation or programs for the next term. Not that he is showing any vision, but throwing out the word development, like it is a P and Q for the need of donor funding. So, the international envoys can see he is the leadership and the one they can trust. Not that it is trustworthy to silence and stop talks with any opposition. Take a look!
“In a remark pointed at the leadership of the Opposition which has been calling for dialogue with the Government, the President said the dialogue he is ready for is talk on how to develop Kenya and bring progress for Kenyans” (…) “The dialogue we are interested in now is the dialogue that transforms lives and brings development. On the other one of talking politics wait for 2022 and you will dialogue with William,” said the President” (…) “The President, who spoke in Muranga County at the funeral of Susan Chege, mother to Muranga Woman Rep Sabina Chege at Kinyona Primary School, urged Jubilee leaders to unite to serve Kenyans. “To all Jubilee leaders, politics is over. Let us work for Kenyans,” said the President” (Zambian Observer, 2017).
That politics are over is still for boggling, that a politician of any kinds says so, especially a President. Who lives and worships politics for living. They are politicking all the time and trying to figure ways to negotiate and find solutions politically to ordinary day problems and future problems. That is what he is supposed to do. Even if he is famous for open-baazar looting and taking state funds, while adding more debt. Possibly, if not figured out properly, the Kenyan State might default on the debt because of the possible interests on the rising debts, that is coming in the near future.
Well, he wants Odinga, Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka, Wetangula, Ndii and Orengo to wait until 2022. He must be insane, if someone had told him that as opposition. He would have stormed the gates and run like a mad-man around the Anniversary Tower. However, he is in power and was “elected” by bots and computer generated people in October. So he thinks he is the king. The people around him boost him like the king as well.
With this sort of actions, he can forget development. Since he is creating more instability and more troubles, hurdles and more insecurity within his own state. If he is planing to destroy all institutions and become his own cult. Then, he is on the way to became another grand-dictator, he might even follow advice from Daniel Arap Moi. Who he visit when the times are hard. We have seen that and shouldn’t be surprised if he follows advice from him, as he visit him in Kabarak.
Certainly, he will not gain anything doing so. Only making sure the disenfranchised in Kenya is more left behind, together with the public that supports NASA. Its like the Jubilee forgot, it wasn’t whole of Kenya that elected him. If it we’re so it wouldn’t be chickens and kids voting in October. Clearly, it was, but then again I think Kenyatta has a short memory span. Unless, he is told what to tell by Cambridge Analytica. Cambridge Analytica servers was also the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) servers. That has been proven. So its not like it was fair game, when it comes to technical parts of counting, neither the use KIEMS. Which is reason for the delay of final results.
All of this is public knowledge and the lacking of understanding of this from Kenyatta. Is only hurting the prospects of healing the wounds. Putting more salt in them and hoping the person doesn’t get furious. Since he has upper-hand and hope he gets away with it.
Kenyatta, should show some more statesmanship, but at this point. That is too much to ask for from him. He has already showed entitlement and arrogance for months. He is just spewing more verbal nightmares, as the stalemate will not create about place between Jubilee or NASA. Jubilee will continue to use police brutality as long as the President are also praising that. He will not step down his ill-adviced statements. Even if he should. But not that he listens to people like me.
If he was my president, I would be ashamed, he is not thinking of the consequences. If he do, then he don’t care about the lives that he inflicts pain and suffering. So he can stay in power with his people. That should be problematic for anyone. Peace.
