Trans Nzoia, Kenya: Is he being conspicuous? Is he prepared to deal with all the possible contingencies that come along with his ethnocentric entry into the National Assembly?
I am convinced beyond reasonable doubt that the antagonists on this debatable theatrics may be right when they argue that Raila is above parliamentary politicking.
His back-door re-admission will mean he will be taking over the stewardship of a malnourished contingent of parliamentarians. I confidently say this because any business of the house always depends on the arithmetic muscles and on this CORD coalition scores poorly.
The question still lingering on my mind is, what type of magic will Raila employ in wooing other legislators who have already pledged allegiance to UhuRuto brigade? The politically-libidinous former PM will be shocked when his irrelevance will be displayed publicly in the highly-charged parliament.
Word has that, topping in the CORD agenda in the National Assembly list of activities is the impeachment of the president and his deputy on the grounds that they have international crime tags on their necks after being accused by the Hague-based court of being the key architects of 2007/2008 post-election violence.
The Raila loyalists in the both legislative houses believe that a motion of such great magnitude needs a seasoned politician to move it, to me this is a deceitful process whose fate is known by even the political infants.
Trying to invoke article 145 (2) of our constitution without the two-thirds majority is a total fallacy, where will they get the two-thirds MPs in a polarized National Assembly?
My former PM will only retain his statesmanship status if he will abscond the back-door re-admission into parliament, in the electrified floor of the house he will be deliberating and championing on the party issues which are not necessarily of national good.
My instinct informs me that a political war-veteran of Raila's calibre with all the medals on his chest need to engage his political rivals in the open arena and not in the parliamentary enclosure where it has been known to be for those hungry Kenyans who are in a mission to defile the snarling Kenyan economy.
Could it be the political loneliness which is propelling him to resort to this desperate survival attempts?
