Hawa watu wa Nation newspaper wanakuanga na kaujjinga fulani when it comes to headlines and cartoons about Musalia Mudavadi. Hiyo ujinga tutaitoa very soon. Look at the headlines today. You will imagine the editors are God to know that Ruto will be on the ballot and the rest are confused and not ready. I call that Idiocracy.
Kwanza, the editors and writers at the Nation newspaper must be reminded that they are not GOD! They do not have powers to predict that only Ruto is ready for elections in 2022 and the rest are hanging. Huo ni ujinga. Atwoli will tell them openly, that even that Ruto may not be on the ballot! Bible will tell those editors that life and death is not for them to predict. One can die. Ruto can be absent by 2022.
Wacha niseme hivi. Kenyans and politicians across the divide have accepted that the. Amani National Congress (ANC) Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi is fit for presidential candidature in next year’s polls. Mudavadi himself and his party have assured Kenyans that he will be on the ballot.
During the burial ceremony of Mama Hannah in Mululu early this year many leaders, including Ruto and UHURU fell short of directly endorsing Mudavadi for the top seat, saying he was “the safest pair of hands that Uhuru could leave the county to.”
President Uhuru Kenyatta himself publicly said presidency can be rotational. Other communities and not just the Kikuyu and Kalenjin can lead Kenya.
Mudavadi’s bid, has helped rally the populous Luhya nation behind him.
Mudavadi remains the best suited to take over the country’s leadership after Uhuru to ensure an economic booster devoid of political shenanigans we have seen in the recent past. Mudavadi’s clarion call remains Uchumi Bora.
Nairobi senator Sakaja has been quoted severally saying;
“This country is sitting on the brink and needs leadership that will unite and not divide Kenyans. Please allow me to rally behind Musalia’s presidential bid,”
If the nation editorial board sobers up they will realize that Kenya needs somebody who will be loyal to the rule of Law; who respects people’s property; someone who does not loot public property and one who can unite the country and grow the economy. That person is Musalia Mudavadi, and he is ready and God willing he will be on the ballot box.
As a Luhya Nation we have become a laughing stock because we divide our votes at every election. This time round, let the Nation newspaper know. Our six million votes are for Omwana wa Hannah! Mpende msipende.
We urge Kenyans to ignore those crazy cartoons and simplistic headlines that Nation newspaper keeps using in depicting Mudavadi as not sure of himself or a fence sitter. Mudavadi is going full force for the big seat. He is determined, he is focused. Gazeti ni ya kufunga nyama. We shall REVIST.
