Why Was Raila Odinga Thrown Out Of A Nyeri Hotel?

Presidential hopeful Raila Odinga was in Nyeri yesterday for the funeral of an LDP official in the district. Two memorable incidents took place.

Firstly here was a skirmish at the funeral when a local in the area was interrupted by rowdy youths as he tried to criticize President Kibaki's administration. Things were so serious that the "speech" had to be cut short. It is not clear why details of this incident are so scanty in the local media.

But there was more drama to follow when Raila was ejected from a Nyeri Hotel because the "owner wanted nothing to do with ODM."

Both these incidents display the height of political immaturity in the country, although critics would be quick to point out that anybody critical of Raila Odinga would face more or less the same treatment in Kisumu, the bedrock of this presidential candidate's support.

This is clear evidence that the wounds between these two leading tribes in Kenya have never been addresses, let alone any attempt made to heal them. Instead every time I bring up the subject here I am accused of being a tribalist pushing forward a tribal agenda.

Alas, Kenyans for now (read those in power and their agents who pollute this blog in large numbers) prefer to bury their head in the sand and pretend that there is no problem and whoever brings up the subject is a tribalist. So be it.

It was callous as it was stupid to do it. Raila has handled it maturely but the unapologetic manner of Ms Weru is in bad taste. He will definitely get sympathy votes for that mis-action. And who can blame him when he tries to milk as much political capital as he can from the act? No One!

We all agree it is stupid and callous as mmnjug puts but the main question is: Is it right when done in Kisumu to Nazlin Omar, Livondo, Kibira to Ndura Waruinge by Raila people and only wrong when done to Raila himself????? They say Mkuki mtamu kwa nguruwe kwa binadamu mchungu. Let Raila show the way by taming his crazed supporters.Let all animals be equal in the real sense and not in the animal farm sense.

It was plain daft what Mrs. Weru did. Despite originating from Emilio's backyard, I found her reaction embarrassing.

"Head in the Clouds" Emilio and "media savvy PR maestro" Raila, should put their egos aside and dowse the fires of political tensionrather than fuel them, lest we have another 1997 retake in terms of violence.
