It pays big time to be paranoid. More so when you are involved with the dirtiest trade on earth called politics. In the early days of the Kumekucha blog I took a lot of trouble to craft a fall back plan in the event that somebody would cripple Kumekucha in some way. I even considered the possibility that somebody would assassinate this blogger.
The result is that a number of things were done and I will mention just two. Firstly we created a second Kumekucha site whose only difference in address was the number “1” in front of Kumekucha i.e. Kumekucha1.blogspot.com. The second thing we did was to enable full access to the blog by a few other individuals scattered across 4 continents of the world. This second step meant that the blog would be able to continue even if somebody eliminated the founder.
As the years went by, I started thinking that perhaps I had been too paranoid. But here we are today, on the fall back site of Kumekucha.
So who wants to kill Kumekucha? What are they afraid of? What particular information are they so determined to keep away from the public domain? I answer this question in great detail in my latest issue of raw notes, (how to get that hot issue of my raw notes) however in this post I will give a few pointers.
The stakes for 2012 are much higher than most Kenyans will ever realize. To make matters worse Kenyans are now in permanent shock which makes it difficult for most of us to access and digest the true gravity of the information that we receive. There has been so much shocking news bombarding Kenya in the media in recent times that many have adjusted to the mode of absorbing shocks. And so what would ordinarily be very disturbing news no longer moves most. This kind of situation is very dangerous.
Why are the stakes so high in 2012?
It should be obvious. We have a new constitution that is the process of being fully implemented. But even in its’ current form it should already have had many more casualties than is the case currently. Indeed what is keeping quite a number of very powerful people out of jail is only one thing and one thing alone. And that is the current government. We have a new constitution being steered and handled by the old guard. The masters of impunity. Simply put, the minute the government changes hands to a new order, will be the beginning of the end of some of the most prominent and respectable names known to the Kenyan society today.
These guys will not go down without a fight. And these people are also very much aware of the fact that Kumekucha is widely used as a point of reference by many and a lot of the compromising information on them is available nowhere else but here in Kumekucha.
Then there are some presidential hopefuls running out of time. Some of their close aides will stop at nothing and I mean nothing to make sure that their man ends up in State House in 2012. As you read this former aide to PM Raila Odinga, Miguna Miguna is writing a book that will shake Kenyan politics like it has never been shaken before. Even those Kenyans who are no longer moved by devastating news will be moved by the contents of this book.
Impeccable sources have told this blogger that the main thrust of the book will be to expose Raila Odinga like never before. I have been very reliably informed about some of the details in Miguna’s book and all I can say for now is that folks will never look at the PM in the same way again. But that is a story for another day.
As the 2012 elections draw ever nearer, Kenyan politics is about to sink to the lowest gutters of dirt. What we will start witnessing will make the past look like some kids at play. Oh yes! The shutting down of the Kumekucha site is just the beginning, a sign of things to come. We will even start to see rampant political assassinations (predicted on Kumekucha for a long time).
We at Kumekucha have started taking precautions and even as you are on this alternate blog today, we are making arrangements to rescue the original kumekucha and to also greatly enhance our security. We hope that Kenyans will support us in this noble endeavour.
Find out how you can support Kumekucha and secure its’ future today.
