Raila from Nyeri heading to Kisii and Ruto in Kirinyaga and everywhere.
Of course, the campaigns for the August 2022 elections haven’t started yet. That is what the politicians are saying. Forget the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC). They do not exist in real Kenyan political life. IEBC is now an expensive paperwork for Kenyans. Nothing more.
But this weekend was full of good political grandstanding and may be, good things that may boil the pot.
First, it was Raila Amolo Odinga in Nyeri the home of his once political ally Mwai Kibaki. A lot of it was just good happy events.
Now we can call Ida, Nyawira, that is nice.
It is the humanity of community relations that grows our country that matters.
And the food I want that.
The fish there I need to do about one hour work to take it where I want it to take me.
Different communities do different cuisines and mixes.
Our cultures are rich in original food.
That is how we survived before penicillin was invented.
We are a people, always as Kenyans and we know that and I think, that message is coming through in all campaigns. That is is good for our country.
But here is the opposition to Raila.
I hope my mother forgives me for putting this as the symbol of god on earth. My mother Alice Sylvia Ogalo Odhiambo Adongo ( Nyar Kingi ) is very forgiving. I know that.
She loves God always. And then we argue from time to time about who this god is. This would be a hard one for her to accept.
And oh yeah this dude and his imaginary tribal warriors.
Big warrior at war.
This is where they are.
There were no Luo crowds in Nyeri or anywhere to welcome Raila as a presidential candidate for 2022, Nyoro knows that. But he has to spin something. It hasn’t worked for three years with nobody to fight against.
May god make it work now.
I doubt god is that generous.
I will consult.
But the elections are on. Which is very good for the country.
And Raila heads to Kisii now.
Very Good for him and Azimio.
