Today I have almost been thrown out of a whatsapp group for hitting hard at a Luhya man who was busy hyping on social media that Mudavadi has no money to mount a presidential campaign. That only Raila and Ruto have money.
That we have such Luhyas who are doubting Thomases. They have already have gone to Mudavadi bank accounts and are so sure he is broke. They are busy convincing others that the only men born with money in Kenya are that Raila and Ruto! It is like they possess the Account balances of Ruto and Raila.
They forget that Raila is just a normal man like all of us. Raila just recently begged KENYANS to contribute to his bid via an mpesa pay bill number. Even Obama of the USA became president because well wishers stood with him and contributed. No PRESIDENT becomes president because he has his own personal money.
Kwani where does Raila dig money from that a Luhya man cannot dig?
Others are busy betraying Mudavadi by their words and actions. AbaYUDA are all over in western selling their birthrights to Raila and Ruto.
Mudavadi is the best we have. Whether he is broke, rich, brown, black, short, tall… HE IS OURS. HE IS OUR BEST.
The NANDI or LUO will NOT replace our own brother. He is ours.
OUR LUHYA people MUST NOT lack self belief. We must eradicate those doubts that we cannot win. That we have no money These type of people should not be allowed to influence our community at all. We must deal with them hard. Personally if you are a Luhya and you show doubt in Mudavadi.. ni nyaunyo.
If we do not stop this self pitty attitudes among the Luhya we will forever remain inferior in the eyes of others.
If my fathers house is a mud Hut I will live in it proudly but I will not lie that my neighbours which is made of bricks is my address I will help my father make his grass thatched mud walled hut a better house.
