In trying to justify his reasons for supporting President Kibaki for re-election, leader of the official opposition Uhuru Kenyatta says that there is no point in standing in an election if one knows that they will lose.
What a lame excuse coming from the mouth of somebody who has seen the inside of a university lecture hall.
Uhuru must know that the essence of a democracy is having a strong viable opposition. Oppositions NEVER fold up to support the government just because they think they can’t win. That has never been heard of in the history of democracy in the world.
Come to think of it, there are numerous other firsts on our local political scene.
Only in Kenya are coalitions formed, deals sealed and MOU’s signed before an election. Only in Kenya was it decided in 1988 that secret ballot voting has no reason for existence and thus was born the notorious queue-voting system.
So now we have a new first; opposition folds up to support the incumbent.
I will tell you what is really going on. Actually I mentioned it here yesterday. The truth is that the Kenyattas, Mois and Kibakis have closed ranks to protect their own.
The clue is to be found in the often repeated phrase, “Kanu MUST be part of the next government.”
MUST? Why Must? What is so life-threatening with Kanu being in the opposition benches once again?
Answer: Because it will be too dangerous to the survival of the wealth of the Kenyattas and Mois if Kanu is NOT part of the next government. What Uhuru has said is that the masses can go to hell, because what is at stake here is the whole future of Uhuru, and his kin.
Now wouldn’t it be really funny if Uhuru ends in the opposition benches once again and as leader of the opposition too. This is not too far fetched. Picture a situation where Emilio loses the elections. There is no way a whole Baba Jimmy will go back trooping to the back benches and since people don’t fight for leader of the official opposition, the way they fight for the presidency, chances are very high that Uhuru Kenyatta will find himself back in his old office. But he has to make it to the 10th parliament in the first place, which according to the noise on the ground is very far from being a forgone conclusion.
What’s with these election predictions anyway? Don’t people ever learn? Remember Njenga Karume who abandoned Mwai Kibaki for Kanu because he was sure Kanu and Moi were unbeatable, only for him to realize that he actually consigned himself back to the opposition benches?
Only the GNUA saved him. GNUA stands for government of National Unity and Anglo-Leasing-like operations. It is too early to write off any of the three major parties going for the presidency so far. Namely ODM Yawa, Ho Ndii Em and of course the PNUA.
