Posts Tagged ‘Raila’

This blog was never meant to be political commentary, but the last several posts have been very much so. Perhaps it is because, i, like most Kenyans, have been slowing waking up from the nightmare we went through recently, and can’t resist to find someone to blame.

Again, i have of late been very critical of ODM and their leaders and people. I hope this is the last of such posts.

I find it sickening, that ODM and PM Raila would want to hold a homecoming party. Party? What are they celebrating? I do not see anything to celebrate. But then again, there is everything for them to celebrate.

  • ODM and has the premier position.
  • Many of them folks are ministers ( Oburu, KaJwang’, Otuoma, Ruto).
  • They get over $20,000/month tax free to burn around, for doing absolutely nothing.
  • They get chance to influence and “eat”..

William Samoei arap Ruto i can excuse. At least he has been behaving in a manner likely to suggest he is busy working, provisioning Billions of shillings to Farmers, in Eldoret North, and the Rift valley, and Nationwide.

How about his Nyanza and Western counterparts? What are they doing? Heard any statement from them that may promise something new for Western/Nyanza? Has Ny’ong’o talked of establishing referral Hospitals in Kisumu or Kakamega to help solve the mega health problems in Nyanza and Western? How about Modern Medical Centers in all major Western Kenya towns?. How about coming up with an infrastucture that enables those supposedly very good ( Luo/Luhya -and other well wishers ) doctors to offer their services to the community every weekend or so?

What new Ideas does Dr. Otuoma have for the Fishing Industry? Dr. Oburu’s constituency is a Fishing community. What plans does he have for his people? Nada. Nada. As long as he can get a cool drink at Ndori, everything is perfect.

Once a Luo/Luhya, always one. Party. Party. Party. Brag to your friends how important you now are. Feelanga important and good. Flaunt your big titles and cars. As for working, they most likely will defend themselves thus:

Who said i was your employee, you uneducated peasant!”.

I am a minister who works for the Nation, not just Nyanza

Do not expect handouts, you must work. I worked very hard to be where i am.

Perhaps, but what is the reality on the ground? Yes, one may be a Minister who serves the whole nation, but history has shown us that the Minister’s influence can be used to at least raise the standards of life of “his” people. Surely the Nyanza and the Western people are at the bottom of the pecking order, so no one in his right mind will complain if they see a Minister using his good offices to improve the lives of these poor Kenyans, and Kenya as a whole.
