Kenya Politics watched from a different angle

Being a good observer, I have noticed the difficulties in, and name calling during, the presidential campaign due to take place in Kenya this year. Through the other eye, I have realised that some of the MP contestors have plan B as plan A.

They are campaigning for local representation which they know they can never get. Here they use plan A, reserving plan B for a post in the government which they will get. Actually their plan B is plan A. It has just come to my understanding.

Anyway a bad workman blames his tool. I can assure they are not poor farmers here. I took in account the religious MPs, who have used the wording that “religion is the opium of the poor” and thus got a number of ballots in the past. I see them coming again.

I have also noticed some who claim that ODM has the next presidency unless the current ruling party with tripple their efforts in stealing the ballots. Here I mean “real stealing of votes”.

Like the Baganda in Uganda, Kikuyus are facing the same difficulties. I met someone who claimed that the Kikuyus and Kalenjins think that Kenya is a family business and people are tired of them.

My last word: be carefull of the strange, sometimes it is better with your old dog.
