This is in reaction to the Statement by the Raila Secretariat
- DPM did not insult PM neither did he ask him to retire. The gist of the DPM speech was that since President Kibaki and PM are principals in a coalition government Kibaki is retiring by dint of the constitution, voters should send the PM in retirement in the next elections as a mark of solidarity with his co-principal.
- All these irritability about Mudavadi are about the great loss they feel. They are using Mudavadi for to seek media attention but we are not ready to offer them that solace. Their vulgarity speaks volumes about the “Character” of their candidate.After they threatened to unleash “dirty” dossier since December, one would have thought they would do better than juvenile attempts tohoodwink Kenyans with some high sounding tomfoolery. Everyone knows that in any of the cited “dossier” investigations have been done and culprits named and netted.Any fanciful allegations that border on defamation are actionable.
- We are not interested in them wasting our time in useless verbal exchanges. We are not seeking their vote neither do we require their vote. Issues of “character” will be decided by Kenyan voters.
- They ought to know that Musalia Mudavadi is not afraid of his past.
- Every act he has performed is public knowledge and no intimidation about nefarious revelations will cower him. If these threats did not keep him in ODM, they will not stop him winning the elections.
- Neither does he deem it necessary that anyone should imprison Kenyans in fear because of their self-proclaimed glorious past. It is important to know that just because you assume you walked the path of righteousness in the past may not resonate with the person Kenyans know today.
- Kenyans have current corruption stories to tell. In the lead up to elections, they may choose to tell stories about this corruption and it will not just be propaganda about some target individuals. The difference will be in their captivating currency. We have snippets of them in the Maize, Kazi kwa Vijana, NSSF and NHIF scams.
- On the other hand, theirs is a gasping breath to divert attention from their terror activities committed and planned. We all know that you can fool some people some time but you cannot fool all Kenyans all the time. Kenyans can name those whose second name is violence. We may be arguing with a militia in the guise of A LOBBY GROUP ready to pounce.
- The Raila campaign has all but admitted that they imported goons to a funeral in Sabatia where they unleashed unthinkable terror on mourning mothers, old men and innocent bystanders. Whether the goons were ferried from Kisumu, Busia or Nairobi is not the issue. This time round, the goons even roughed up a dead body too.
- You can read animism here; serious evil visited onto a very peaceful and religious community. Never has this community ever witnessed such wickedness against their value system of honouring the dead. Why one should invite gangs of misfits dressed in party colours to afuneral is now beyond speculation. Fear and intimidation is theoperating manual here. The people of Sabatia were supposed to be intimidated into submission and since they did not, they had to be clobbered and their funeral rites violated.
- All this while, the beneficiaries of the violence were calmly seated enjoying the scenic beauty of the dead being punished for dying with their vote. All this is because the attempt to create the impression of political support at the funeral had backfired.
- If the RAO Secretariat can go to this extent, anyone can guess who authored an SMS in the Kisa dialect of the Luhya language alleging planned chaos.
