Kibaki and PNU ( Party of National Unity)

Finaly, Kibaki has decamped the party that brought him to power to join Party of National Unity (PNU). With him being the only presidential candidate, it is unclear whether PNU will sponsor any parliamentary or civic seats in forthcoming elections. Basing on information being gathered now, seems like Kibaki might be the only elected leader in the party for others have to fight for their own to get elected to parliament.

To some extent, this is beneficial to many first time politicians for now they can join a party of their own choice and campaign hard without the fear of the electorate voting on a three piece suit.

Even though managing multiple parties will be difficult thanks to the experience from ODM-K (that one of Raila and Kalonzo) and NARC ( when all of them were RAINBOW COALITION), at least the voters will have a better view of the individuals rather than political parties that have for the longest harbored thugs and corrupt officials and have given them a guarantee back to parliament.

I believe that most politicians especially those who were pushing for NARC-Kenya will have a hard time trying to convince the voters that Kibaki is with them, for central, Eastern and Rift Valley Provinces, Kibaki's decision to join a non-partisan party will boost unknown politicians to the limelight for all they have to do is campaign for themselves and in doing so, push for Kibaki Votes.

In real sense, Kibaki will be getting more campaign done by the civic and parliamentary candidates, he might not have to campaign as hard in some regions due to the overwhelming support he is already receiving. Money Wise, best placed, since will have like 16 candidates in almost every constituency campaigning for him, what else could you ask for if you were Kibaki?

This two horse race between Raila and Kibaki willleave the entire country polarized along tribal lines.

Kibz is looking particularly strong on the grassroots level and Raila has not helped his stature by annointing tainted goldenboy Mudavadi as VP designate and William 'ngong forest' Ruto as PM.

Tinga, how much more effective than Kibz will you be at tackling graft when your team is also full of rotten apples?

Included in the game which fascinates players is a range of monster and treasure cards which is colored black and white on the front and at the back are color coded representing the different six increasing dungeon levels: gold for first, orange for second, red for third, magenta for fourth, green for fifth, and blue for sixth. The game is played with every player’s goal to defeat the monsters and collect as much treasures as possible back to the dungeon entrance. There have been later versions like the Dungeon and Dragons.
