THE ODM WAY OF POLITICS – TRIBAL MOBILIZATION AND PROFILING – MAKES MANY KENYANS VERY SC ARED OF RAILA ODINGA

The 2007 ODM campaign of 41 against 1 AIMED at MOBILIZING ALL “Kenyans” against Mwai Kibaki’s Kikuyu community. This was supposed to guarantee Raila Odinga the presidency. Hence the murderous cries of “the election has been stolen!” after Mwai Kibaki was declared winner. How could “one tribe”, Kikuyus, win against all other Kenyans? How!

After the elections of 2013, we have had a continuous ODM/CORD/NASA campaign of “A government of two tribes”, the Kikuyu and Kalenjin. Again, this is aimed at mobilising
all “Kenyans” against the Kikuyu and Kalenjin communities, again to “guarantee” Raila Odinga wins the presidency.

In the 41 vs. 1 ODM campaign, Kibaki’s government was called a “Kikuyu government”. A “one-tribe government”.
Kikuyus were painted as “thieves”, taking ALL government jobs, businesses and grabbing land all over Kenya.

Raila presented himself as the “saviour” of Kenya, from the Kikuyu “thieves”. Results of the tribal campaign? DEATHS of thousands, RAPE of thousands of women and girls, DESTRUCTION of billions worth of property and displacement of hundreds of thousands of people.

Is there anybody who still wonders why members of the Kikuyu and the larger central Kenya communities are terrified and SCARED TO DEATH of Raila Odinga? Now you know!
