Pride and Perception

Raila, having realised his voter block here in kenya is inadequate,
has gone on a regional vote hunting spree!
Now,the brothers in diaspora are expected to register in large numbers
in anticipation of online voting rather absentee ballots (sic!)
shit is, once you leave kenya, your vote is as good as a 6 years' old.
Raila should get real. Trying to upstage Kibaki on continental tv is not only callous
but stupid.

He must be glowing with glee at the prospect of hapless africans wondering
who the fuck he is? Imagine a nigerian crying "oga, who is dis my brodda? wot contry is he supporting at de wold cop?" is he a presdent my brodda?"..........
Let me not delve into the arabic reaction nor the zulu reaction!
I wonder how many kenyans including those in his backyard have seen his
5 seconds in the sun.
Just think about it, how many kenyans in rural areas have access to dstv?
A better medium would have been KTN/KBC. i need not explain.
Anyway, passing himself of as a pan-africanist (i wonder if he knows the meaning of it)
is really cheap.

But hey, he and his stooge kalonzo (remember his KM foundation?) are simply playing politics.
I mean who heard of a politician setting up a foundation well before the twilight of his career?
Clearly these two bit a lil' bit more than they could or can chew.
All in all, i must recognise that in a tribally charged political society like kenya, numbers do count.
But so is perception.
You may lack the numbers but engage in countless meaningless ventures
which serve to increase you visibility.
Therefore, leaders like Kibaki, Uhuru , raila, Mudavadi etc will always hedge their bets on the tribal arithmetic whilst those from mimimal votes communities opt for the perception bit. examples include akina ruto, kalonzo, balala etc...

Anyway by going continental, raila has indeed entrenched his candidacy
on the minds of africans (not kenyans!)
shit is, can he bank on the african vote to help him sail through in kenya?
your guess is as good as mine.

What pan-african or rather regional initiative has raila undertaken that makes him
dream of being called a pan-africanist?
Is he implying that he is no longer in the league of kenyan leaders?
Is he at par with Nelson Mandela, Kwame Nkrumah or closer home, to Mwalimu Nyerere or Jomo Kenyatta?
Granted its his right to gloat. Afterall he is the Mp for Langata which houses the largest slum dwelling in Africa!!!

Aha!!!! iko kitu....

By representing the largest slum dwelling in africa, Raila is truly Pan-africanist!
What an accolade...congatualtion dude!!!
Lets see how far the african and indeed diaspora vote will carry him in his quest.

Lorna irungu or a striking resemblance????

There is this mail circulating all over. Apparently the mail has two pix attachments of
a black mama getting jiggy wit a jungu.
To cut to the chase, the mama bears striking resemblance to one lorna irungu
Poor girl, all her goodies have been laid bare for the whole world to savour.
The pix have a signature address of a porn website ala BIGNATURALS.COM
I guess thats where they were first published.
Needless to say, the damage is done and lorna must be shocked.
What strikes one is the resemblance and she will definitely have a difficult time convincing
people otherwise.
All in all it is a shame what perverts can do to a person's reputation.
My take is that this must be a striking resemblance, nothing more.
Si yeye....
