RAILA: Still Far From Presidency


First of all let me congratulate Raila Odinga on his nomination as the Presidential Candidate on ODM ticket. It has been a tough year for him trying to get Kalonzo of his back and he finally did what he does best.....start another party.

I have nothing against Raila and actually I do appreciate all he did for Kenyans during the second liberation for democracy. Very few individuals would have undergone what he went through and still dine in the same table as he did with President Moi. However, he still lacks leadership tactics and am still afraid of what would happen if he was the president. His Russia schooling do not scare me much but his failure to accept defeat or challenge makes me wonder what would happen if he was the president.

At times i think he would be better than Moi, sometimes i think he would be worse. I am afraid that he would control every aspect of the government and manipulate the civil servants such that it will be Raila country and anyone who objects would surely suffer.

Also, his style of leadership and what they are proposing with other ODM "pentagon leaders" leaves me to wonder whether our country has that kind of money to pay couple vice presidents and a prime minister if we still want to achieve the 2030 vision. His "Government" seems to forget that there is a budget to be met, but with people like Ruto being proposed as the prime minister ( remember the YK92 and inflation that followed?)...then who cares about the money being circulated. Also, the choice of Musalia Mudavadi as the running mate makes me question the legibility of that government. Musalia Mudavadi was Minister for Finance during Moi Era and yet there is nothing we can talk of him apart from more corruption saga's.

Well, am not like Moi, I haven't decided who will get my support for presidency and am still weighing these politicians. Maybe the 1,000 plus bloggers who visit this blog a month will help me decide.....and maybe i will make it public
