The Powerful Forces That DO Not Want Raila To Be President

Analysts including this blogger have long pointed to the powerful anti-Raila forces that seem prepared to do anything to ensure that Raila never sees the inside of State House as the main occupant.

Top on that list is Moi, whose tentacles after 24 years as Kenya's presidency spread far and wide, giving him plenty of influence, even when he is no longer president. Then there is the fact that he is rated as the richest Kenyan alive by many people who also place his son Gideon at number two, in terms of wealth. Money usually does miracles in Kenya and magically opens ever doors that have previously been firmly shut for a long time. There is little doubt that a lot of the Moi family fortunes will be put to work against Raila.

Then there is the Central Kenya billionaires club. This consists mainly of people who made their money during the Kenyatta days. Many of these men are in the twilight years of their life and are extremely anxious that the country avoids a Luo presidency at all costs. These individuals who even Kumekucha is frightened to mention here are prepared to do anything (and I mean anything) to ensure that the son of Jaramogi never carries the title of "your excellency" either in the lifetime or after. The kind of treatement Raila received at the Karatina Tourist Hotel, gives Kenyans just a small glimpse into the thinking of this group. You can be sure if the person involved was either Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi or William Ruto, they WOULD NOT have been ejected out of the hotel like Raila was.

Indeed close Raila supporters acknowledge the fact that their candidate's life has been in a lot of anger for a long time, but they insist that he has some certain "magical powers" he was born with that help him evade danger and see plots against his life even as they are being hatched. Remember what Raila said about the Artur brothers and their real mission to Kenya?

There is yet another more sober group of presidential advisors who are younger and more thoughtful and analytical. This group is also against a Raila presidency because it is deeply worried at what it sees as Raila's vengeful character. They point to several examples to prove their point. The most chilling is the one that involves former Rangwe legislator, Shem Ochudho, who fell out badly with Raila in the run up to the 2002 elections. Reliable sources insist that Mr Odinga went to great lengths to block Ochudho's appointment to the Kenya Pipeline, using his great influence in government at the time, when he was still with President Kibaki. Raila failed but many people carefully and quietly watching were taken aback at how vengefully he had acted against his former ally. This group of advisors mainly from the Mount Kenya region are sure that a Raila presidency at this point in time could spell disaster for Kenya.

Then there is the group that consists mainly of dark figures who deliberately stay out of public limelight but are very influential. Many of them are involved in corrupt deals with government departments and a few are even in the illegal drug business. This crooks can clearly read the writing on the wall and they do not like it one bit. The direction that the country wuld head under a Raila presidency would be one where the common man would have the sort of say he/she has never had since independence. This would naturally mean an end to their lucrative and mostly illegal business, which they will do anything to protect.

Now the big question is this; Can Raila Odinga defeat all these powerful forces to ascend to the presidency?

My honest, impartial and thoroughly analyzed verdict is; "NO."

Interesting Analysis but you've got to be kidding me.

You've not analysed the forces. The thing is, you are one of the forces.

Well analysed and criticised. All I can say is that you are not far from Mt Kenya if you are not ne of them. Every one can see beyond the lines. Who said "Kibaki tosha"? Where were the powerful forces when there man was recovering in London together with his number two? And who campaigned for his ascenscion to presidency? It is well known in Kenya that Kibaki had more votes in Nyanza than his own home turf. Why didnt the powerful forces deliver the highest number of votes in Central Kenya? If Kibaki is not vengeful, as you seem to portray him, why did he fire his ministers after 2005 referendum defeat,even after the Orange team were willing to embrace the govt. side for new talks? Stop playing hatred politics and give the man what he deseves. Kibaki and Mi may have the power but not the electorate. it is the electorate that control the state house.
