Not even a mention of the people who lost their lives! Especially the young people who truly believed they are protesting for a good cause and who were responding to “mass action.”

I predict this is the beginning of the end of ODM. Since it is clear that we will still firmly remain in a tribal math game as far as political assignments and barring the appearance of some new blood, my looking glass says…

Ruto wants the top prize, and this unfortunate backtrack by Raila firmly puts him (Ruto) in the drivers seat. Emboldened by the numbers he can carry in Rift Valley, expect Ruto to work to bring others into the fold as he engineers his ODM takeover. It looks like Ababu is his proxy for Western, turncoat Kalonzo (who’s also against the implementation for Waki) won’t be averse to being wooed for Eastern, Balala will be the Coast proxy, and Uhuru might be open to seeking an effective counter measure to Karua (or at worst the central vote would be split). Raila won’t be left with many cards to play, IF, he decided to split ODM…even some Nyanza guys are starting to build distance. He has Mudavadi, who cannot deliver Western solidly and might be able to make overtures to Ngilu (or gasp! Uhuru) but that’s about it.

It’s all so depressing…ain’t it? :-)

I still believe the Waki issue gives Kenyans a small window to get rid of the whole lot and the rotting institutions that prop them up…or at the very least…an opportunity to get re-energized about radical change… so I will continue to focus my energies on that.

  • I think we need a leader to unify Kenyans and not have to court a indigenous to deliver a vote.

  • Ruto will takeover ODM it seems but he is being used to finish Raila politically. Once ODM is split just before election in 2012 Ruto will be also finished via the Waki report leaving only Kalonzo and Uhuru to share power as pres and pm.

  • The Idea of Raila and Ruto seemingly divided on the waki report mind not be clear coz both are still senging the same song ODM. what should be the basis of kenyans judgment is what Gopd realy is doing. it not Rut nor raila nor Uhuru but God.

    One we have been divided along tribal line
    We are locked in being partisan and not looking at the individual
    the obama victory should teach us how to look at thing sinse Him Being an African Not even an being a black american he hass been ellected as the president of America
    we should be able to elect leaders regard less of where they are coming from tribe or even what the notion and comment from some sources that don’t make sense.

    and it begins with me and you

  • I wish to show my appreciation to you for bailing me out of this particular problem. Right after looking out through the internet and finding basics which were not helpful, I thought my life was over. Living devoid of the solutions to the difficulties you’ve resolved by way of your site is a serious case, as well as the kind which could have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn’t come across your website. The training and kindness in taking care of all the pieces was tremendous. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a thing like this. It’s possible to now relish my future. Thanks a lot very much for your skilled and amazing help. I will not think twice to endorse your web blog to anyone who wants and needs support about this subject matter.
