What we saw with Barack Muluka leading some few bloggers and MCAs from AMANI NATIONAL CONGRESS, which he was SG to join an armorphous outfit called the Hustler has left a,spur taste in the mouths of many who worked and know him. For me it is worse. He is my villager. Nitaambiya nini watu???
Take note, Musalia Mudavadi and ANC are not on trial , it is the Luhyia community which is on trial. The Hustler is a good student of Moi. What he is doing is the same the things Moi used to do in order to scale down opposition. He did to Matiba and Jaramogi by stealing … wait a minute… Yes. He stole another luhyia called Martin Shikuku. Shikuku was from then labled as mtu wa ugali.
Moi did the same to Kibaki in central Kenya. Moi planted spies, bought friendsof the rivals and stole the loyalists from Kibaki’s party etc. Poaching of staff and supporters of a strong candidate in order to weaken him is part of politics. Only problem is, the person who is cheaply poached remains a sore thump in the history of the people.
However the people of Nyeri, Muranga and the entire Mt.Kenya made a decision, they stood and walked with Kibaki up to state house , 2002
Mt. Kenya rejected Moi project that time and overwhelming voted for Kibaki ….This time, we as the Mulembe community and all communities in western Kenya stand accused. We have never learnt to be united. We have never stood behind one of our own. 2022, was a year that we the Luhya would have presented a candidate who can lead Kenya to prosperity. We have a rare chance to stand with Musalia Mudavadi to succed Uhuru in 2022. Musalia who commands respect from all Kenyan leaders including the current president Uhuru Kenyatta. He stands a better chance in terms of unifying Kenya,than either Ruto or Raila. But seeing Muluka betray the community and betraying our course, and joining the league of Mulembe hirings, who we see on TV and radio deaming themselves in support of those who pay them is so hurting.
SEEING MULUKA run to the hustler nation to compete for a job with Itumbi has taken away our pride. We are so ashamed. Muluka is well schooled. Our people and the church in my area paid for Muluka to get agood education. Now see him with overgrown beared ati a hustler!! Atwoli should label him.. Mujinga. Mushenzi.
It is NOT ABOUT MUDAVADI OR ANC… IT IS ABOUT US AS MULEMBE PEOPLE.. We shall be called names.. watu wa ugali, cheap Luhyas, Tutaitwa washenzi type.. wapenda kuku, Hawana msomamo. Even DP handlers in the Hustler mansion at Karen will never trust Luhyas. I am sure.. DP RUTO will remind us… we the Luhya.. . KAMA HAMWEZI KUJIPANGA.. TUTAKUJA KUWAPANGA…!!@
Wolololo.. Tutaambia nini watoto wetu? How will History judge us?
I am so ashamed.
