The National Super Alliance (NASA) brainchild supremo Musalia Mudavadi appears to have most of the fortunes flowing to his side to propel the giant coalition into power at the August 8th, 2017 general elections.
The Amani National Congress (ANC) leader’s fortunes apparently started consolidating themselves after the debilitating humiliations of betrayal he suffered at the hands of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto in the run up to the last general elections.
That is when the duo deliberately conspired to dupe him with an agreement to be the flag bearer of their outfit only to unceremoniously dump him in the freezing ice-cold political limbo as they hoarded power unto themselves and close cronies from their ethnic communities.
It was the second time Mudavadi was being consigned into the ice of political limbo in his political career at the very hands of President Kenyatta. The first having been at the 2002 general elections when he was forced to play second fiddle by retired President Daniel Arap Moi coerced to leave the pentagon to become a reluctant brief Vice President to Moi and Uhuru’s running mate.
Twice forced against his own better judgment to go back to the drawing board to pick and painstakingly piece together the broken icy pieces of his political career that was being threatened to go to oblivion. Mudavadi seems to have come back with the deadly rage of angels to reclaim and defend the stolen Kingdom of God – Kenya.
Right from the transformation of the Amani Coalition outfit at the last general elections after the Uhuruto betrayal to vie for the Presidency on the United Democratic Front (UDF) ticket and lost. Then merge the Amani Coalition into the ANC party and the recent mooting of the NASA jaggernaught to hound Jubilee out of office.
After the political betrayals and humiliations that the ANC leader has weathered over the last two and a half decades, it is now clearly becoming evident that he has created a powerful deadly arch-angel of vengeance that has come to lead the rage of angels to hound Jubilee outfit out of power to reclaim God’s Kingdom in the name of NASA after Jubilee apparently watered itself down on merging into a singular political party.
Comparatively, the NASA principals Orange Democratic Movement’s (ODM) Raila Odinga, Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka, and Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula have never suffered nor experienced the political betrayals and humiliations that their colleague Mudavadi has gone through over the last twenty-five years.
Betrayals and humiliations that saw the ANC leader rejected, reviled, shunned, humiliated and vilified right from his own home constituency in Sabatia Vihiga County, through that county and those neighbouring it, but above all by his own populous Luhyia Community in the former Western province and beyond.
A community that was supposed to defend and protect him just as others have done their own communities’ personalities in the past. Like President Kenyatta and his Deputy Ruto, former Presidents Moi and Mwai Kibaki, Raila and Kalonzo – the Luhyia’s shunned him as a coward and even voted him out of office.
Therefore it was a dramatic turn of events when a study conducted by the University of Nairobi found that the peoples of the former Western province preferred Mudavadi against Wetangula and Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya as their leader and spokesman.
However the turning fortunes which initially exploded into apparently earth shaking waves, are consistently transforming themselves into a storm that has all the hallmarks into a highly powerful and deadly tsunami that may totally and completely change the country’s political future and destiny forever.
That is from the narrow stronghold of two ethnic communities, the Kikuyu of Central province and the Kalenjin of the Rift Valley against the rest comprising of more than 42 groups spread across all the regions of the country right from the Kenya – Uganda border in the West to the East on the Kenya – Somali border and the Indian Ocean. From the North of the border of Kenya – Ethiopia/South Sudan to the South on the Kenya – Tanzania border.
Indeed it is a well documented fact over the decades that have seen the regimes of four presidents the gross and blatant abuse of ill gotten wealth and financial might entrenched in mega corruption cartels used to fraudulently grab power consistently clearly to maintain the status quo of the debilitating extreme poverty amongst tens of millions with a handful mega rich perennially calling the shots.
This is clearly the direct opposite of the hope and savior that NASA principals are propagating in a broken society brought to its knees by perennial mega multi-billion shillings corruption scandals in a tattered economy whose money circulation has been consigned to the dungeons of gross mismanagement and misrule.
Evidence of the impending change through the NASA juggernaught is unfolding everyday and everywhere as the clock ticks closer to this year’s elections date. That is starting from the apathy that was recently witnessed in the just concluded mass voter registration exercise by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
The most telling are the statistics released by the Commission which clearly showed that NASA and Jubilee are neck to neck with the total figures of the registered voters in areas perceived to be their strongholds across the country. Jubilee had 7 million just like NASA with Jubilee leading with a few hundreds of thousands.
It should also not be forgotten that just like the Kikuyu’s the Luhyia’s are also scattered in many counties across the country in the Rift Valley, Nairobi, Coast, Nyanza and Eastern Kenya regions.
Combined the NASA juggernaught has the ability to effectively consolidate the Bantu groups that have over the decades been marginalized from Western, Nyanza, Rift Valley, Nairobi, Eastern, and the coastal Kenya regions, the marginalized Nilotics from Nyanza, Rift Valley, Western and the Coast regions including the hermits and Cushites from Northern and North Eastern Kenya to build an all inclusive nation – to effectively consign Jubilee into big trouble.
More evidence of this trouble is emerging with the recent blocking of Ruto from entering into Bungoma town where he has made more than 20 forays in the recent past to address a rally even after the County’s Governor Ken Lusaka and a number of MPs and leaders defected to Jubilee.
The same DP’s hostile reception in Turkana, Pokot, Baringo, the rebellion of Bomet Governor Isaack Ruto and Senator Gideon Moi, the frantic visits to Moi by Kenyatta’s mother Mama Ngina Kenyatta, followed by that of President Kenyatta, the public hostilities against him at the Coast led by Mombasa governor Hassan Joho, the Jubilee defections witnessed in Embu and Meru in the recent past are all just clear indications of a troubled Jubilee.
All these are crowned by the more recent raids y the NASA team in the so called Jubilee strongholds in Eldoret, Narok, Nakuru and more so in Meru where the receptions were attended by huge masses of people that were never expected before.
Therefore it is clearly emerging that the Jubilee house is a battered besieged house this time round compared to the run up the last general elections. At that time they had a powerful emotional rallying call – that of being suspects facing charges at the International Criminals (ICC) court in the Hague.
However, this time round their administration riddled with corruption and false un-completed or failed development projects and programmes, what is going to e their rallying call to their ethnic sympathizers?
Indeed it has already clearly emerged that of the three NASA principals the Raila, Mudavadi and Musyoka the most feared dreaded personality to be the coalition’s flag bearer amongst the Jubilee ranks is Mudavadi because he will have the tyranny of numbers from his own community that has been shunned for decades by the Kikuyu and Kalenjin ruling class.
Secondly he has appeal and easily accepted amongst the Kalenjins and other communities in the Rift Valley, in central whereas the GEMA groups are enslaved y the Odinga/Jaluo phobia find Mudavadi acceptable, with Musyoka as running mate eastern province will be a walkover, crowned by the coast province who have historically been close to their western Bantus.
