Opinion — Kang’ata is right: Mount Kenya will shame BBI and Uhuru

Kenyans are seemingly out of touch with their politicians. That is why they are feigning surprise at Murang’a Senator Irungu Kangata political letter to political “gentiles”. – By Henry Kimoli

Mzee Jomo Kenyatta walks then young Uhuru Kenyatta, alongside Former president Daniel Moi.

Forget about the addresee. The St. Kangata damning letter, like that of the Biblical Paul to the Galatians has unruffled political feathers, far and wide.

Kangata is a brave man. Or whoever drafted and forced him to sign the letter.

 He has elected to unmask the thinking of the Kikuyu nation early 2021….to aid those wishing away Kenya’s equivalent of the Florida presidential voting machine, known variously as GEMA vote.

Plainly put. Mount Kenya will reject the BBI flatly, unless it guarantees the community’s political and economic position.

Forget about the excuse that the community CANNOT vote for Raila. They can. But Raila has no DEFINITIVE tribal political numbers…capable of winning an election at 10am.

“Used” to the Presidency

The GEMA are “used” to the Presidency. The Kale’s are used to the warmth of the seat, 24 years on the trot vide Daniel Arap Moi.

ANC Leader Musalia Mudavadi

The two communities can craft an emotionless political deal, like happened between Uhuruto in 2013.

Then President Mwai Kibaki silently cheered the duo and audaciously sacrificed his second term.

The deep state then feigned support for Musalia Mudavadi…branding him a safe pair of hands…a fake accolade that sank Musalia’s presidential dreams in the abyss of the deep sea.

Kangata wants to force another Kalenjin-Kikuyu political deal….or whatever other proposition that will favour GEMA interests.

2022 GEMA Vote

Kangata is not the problem. 2022 GEMA position is. And this is the prime interest that Kangata wants to serve.

GEMA Elders coronate impeached Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko

Sample this. In 2002, DP William Ruto was a political novice. In 2007, DP William Ruto drove retired President Moi out of the Kalenjin political homestead. He literally dethroned him by posturing as the future of the community.

President Kenyatta will officially retire on 26th of October 2022…unless the now silent COTU boss Francis Atwoli has his way.

The Kikuyus are in a post Uhuru Kenyatta mode. They are crying out for a fresh leader…. they need a political reboot.

This is the ‘intelligence’ Kangata is hawking to the conventional intelligence community.

Since 2002, GEMA has voted plainly for their sons…

  • Kenneth Matiba in 1992 rran away with the Kikuyu hustlers votes..
  • Kibaki ran pocketed the elite, “useless” votes.
  • In 2002, GEMA experienced voter turnout apathy. On the ballot was Uhuru Kenyatta and Mwai Kibaki.
President Uhuru Kenyatta reads the BBI Report

Prognosis? BBI outcome has no effect to Kikuyu and GEMA voters.

Barring miracles, the community is done with the BBI and Uhuru politically…they will not buy his political direction….unless he is in it himself.
