Uhuru Kenyatta’s “Presidential Theatrics” Is An Incitement of 5.3 Million Cord Supporters
Millions of Cord supporters may have been watching with amazement attempts by the thieving Kikuyu ruling class to elevate President-elect, Uhuru Kenyatta to the status of President before he is sworn in and as a Petition challenging his declaration as President-elect is scheduled for filing at the Supreme Court on Monday, March 18th 2013.
Uhuru has had a Kibaki-guided tour of State House, is meeting foreign diplomats while the ICC suspect aka President-elect has begun taking all sorts of decisions reserved for President. Most amazing, Uhuru is receiving “security briefings” at his house and making moves towards forming the Cabinet. To understand the awkward nature in which events could turn abruptly, one has to picture a situation in which the Supreme Court declares that the IEBC tallying process was compromised and orders a new election in 60 days.
If this were to happen (it is the only possibility as far as Cord is concerned), imagine the spectacle of a person who has already met diplomats returning to the campaign trail in a re-run of election that he might lose if it is true that he was rigged in. It is shocking that the Jubilee think-tank is asleep because if it were active, what Uhuru is doing is basically childish and smacks of a lone-ranger concoction devoid of fore-sight and informed opinion.
A President-elect ought not to assume the duties of a President before the swearing in ceremony is completed especially when there is an impending court case that might overturn the decision that led to the pronouncement of victory. Uhuru’s naïve posturing ahead of the Cord petition is irresponsible, amateurish, boisterous, uncalled for and utterly flabbergasting to say the least. It smacks of arrogance and impunity which even turns off objective Cord members who may want to believe that he won the election and who are awaiting for the content of the Cord petition to make up their minds as to whether to stick with RAO or let it go.
Already, Cord is promising their supporters that they have overwhelming evidence that election was compromised and, according to unofficial figures, Uhuru Kenyatta’s votes was inflated with more than 700,000 votes to enable him win with a slim majority. The NSIS’ and the IEBC’s top officials are in a state of panic at the prospect of being exposed depending on the evidence Cord has in store.
These conspirators are so scared that they have even tried to block Cord from getting documents which ought to be public as per the New Constitution. Under the circumstances, the best Uhuru could have done is to stop acting as a drunkard, take it easy, play a low profile and await for the outcome of the Cord petition. By showing an I-don’t-care attitude in relation to such a sensitive issue, Uhuru is telling Kenyans that he knows something millions of Kenyans do not know – that the outcome of the Cord petition may have been decided. This could be dangerous for Republic of Kenya.
In fact, the primary concern now is not even Uhuru’s “Presidential posturing” but the psychological impact of this posturing on the 5.3 million Kenyans who voted for Cord. Given Uhuru’s activities since he was fraudulently declared President-elect, Kenya has two presidents, one active and one passive with the latter being on his way to retirement. For many Cord supporters, the latest developments could be a pointer that the Mafia riggers of election may be too sure about their strategy to an extent that they have given Uhuru a go-ahead to pose as “The President”, probably because they have already decided the outcome of the Cord petition through dirty Mafia tactics they used to rig elections.
The only way of doing that is to compromise the Supreme Court and although no one has seen the evidence on the hands of Cord, Uhuru’s posturing is dangerous because silently, it tells Cord supporters that in as much as they can wait for the Court petition, the Mafia bosses at NSIS, the Army, the Commissioner of Police and other conspirators may have hatched a new scheme to defeat the Cord petition regardless of the evidence. This is where the danger might pop up.
If Cord can demonstrate to the public through the Supreme Court that election was rigged, and with the Uhuru theatrics showing in town, Cord supporters will find it difficult believing that the High Court has not been compromised if it rules in favour of Uhuru.
What will happen next will depend on whether Raila Odinga agrees with the Court verdict and in case Agwambo suggests that the Supreme court may have been compromised, Uhuru’s current “Presidential theatrics” will combine with growing suspicions and fears of perpetual election rigging by two ethnic groups in charge of the State apparatus to produce a dangerous political mixture that may explode in the streets thereby creating a situation which might make Kenya ungovernable.
Uhuru Kenyatta’s current Presidential antiques should therefore be shelved on grounds that they are an incitement to violence, anarchy or chaos depending on what happens to the Cord petition. Uhuru’s minders should advise him to play his Presidential razzmatazz away from the media because there might be no swearing in on 26th March 2013. The winds of change may take over but do I say!
