The kind of mentality that has been common in Luhya land where leaders and the electorate have to line up to get tokens in Sugoi, Karen, capital hill or in Bondo is dying.
Except for a few like Bonny Khalwale, Edwin Sifuna or Titimus barasa our people and especially leaders are discovering that handouts only enslave us further.
Handouts is the reason why our community has remained cheap for hire for decades. It is a demon that we must fight. The demon of poverty, where a leader like DP RUTO can colonise our minds and ties us to him.
A good example is the Luhya elder Musikari Kombo who is now on record saying that no leader shall be allowed to just walk straight to the Mulembe people without going through the Luhya Kingpin, Hon. Musalia. Let us not go to sell our nakedness to foreigners in Sugoi or Bondo.
Remember, our problem has all along been the Bukusus and Maragolis not accepting to work together as one based on the fact that they are the majority but things have drastically changed since l as a Bukusus leader started talking to every Bukusu leader.
The message was not clear to both Raila and Ruto that’s why they want to dare the Mulembe nation by fielding candidates in both Matungu and Kabuchai. We are going to confirm to the two Luhya enemies that we have been foolish and used for too long BUT now we have moved on.
As Wetang’ula once was quoted saying a real man cannot allow another man to touch the BREASTS of his wife WHILE he is around
We used to assume that every community has a right to demand for jobs and money from the MPs and ministers from their community until late when we realised that these positions can’t empower our leaders enough to even provide jobs to more than 10 people.
This is the major reason why we must ensure that our own son Hon. Musalia Mudavadi becomes the next president because we believe in him as the safe pair of hands not only to the Mulembe people but to the entire nation. We are tired of just sitting on the fence only to wait to be invited on the table by the corrupt who hide the best meals under the table before we are invited. It’s time now for the Mulembe people to also invite other communities on the high table.
We have come to realise that even the president doesn’t have what it takes to feed his community. The president can only empower his community by giving investors opportunities to invest in his region for the community to access employment. Moreover, the president is also in a position to create job opportunities for a few of his people in very influential positions in the government as CEOs and parastal heads for them to employ more of their community members.
The Luhya Community has actually styled up and now refused to accept to be used cheaply as always by leaders from other communities in bringing down our own Leaders. We have come to understand the fact that the likes of Kibaki, Uhuru, Ruto and Raila are who they are because of the overwhelming community support but not because they provided their people with jobs or handouts. Raila Odinga is the most mean person on earth. He give no token to Luos, but they support him like crazy. Even Ruto never gives money to his community. Rarely do you see Ruto telling Kalenjins to line up for WHEELBARROWS. He only spends on buying a few cheap Luhya, Kikuyu and luo leaders to confuse their communities in believing in his narratives of constructing 7 stadiums, 6.5 million jobs and such like.
We have come to learn that their communities never demand for a penny to make them who they are now. That their communities understand the fact that they cannot eat a Mango fruit before planting a Mango tree.
Most of us Luhyas were used to demanding for a Mango fruit before planting the Mango tree. We even used to cut the Mango tree when at its flowering stage claiming that it has taken too long without giving us fruits. We then go begging for Mangoes from other communities.
Failure to support Hon. Musalia Mudavadi now and fall for Ruto or Raila is like cutting a Mango tree at its flowering stage, only to plant a seedling in Bondo or Sugoi.
LET Ruto, Raila and other scarvangers who like scavanging in western rest assured that this is not going to happen again. We are actually well informed.
The Luhya Community is going to pass a strong message during the coming by-elections in Matungu and Kabuchayi that foreigners are no longer wanted in our land. We have borrowed a very big leaf from the likes of the Luo community who have supported Raila for more than 25 years yet he has never even given a penny to any of his supporters neither shown a sign of yielding fruits in the near future.
The message from Luhya land is going to be announced with a loud bang after the two by-elections. No leader shall be entertained in Western without the blessings of Hon. Musalia Mudavadi and Wetangula.
