NASA, Whining will not win you the election

By Pamba Ouma | May 15th 2017

I am among, those Kenyans who believe that the result of August polls is still uncertain. Jubilee and NASA have chances only that NASA has chosen to be doing the unexpected.

The last time I talked to my NASA brothers through such an opinion, I warned them against the prolonged delay in naming their flag bearer.

They went ahead and named one Raila Odinga. Whining will not win you the election. Winning souls will do.

Apparently, the National Super Alliance top principals and ardent supporters including their online bloggers can only be likened to a bunch of whiners. Men and women who wake to complain.

With all the whining around, it is really had for the undecided Kenyans to believe that NASA government can be a government of change. Of course when you whine you look helpless.

Robert Green in one of his top books 'The Art of Seduction’ advances a mode of seduction which involves creating insecurity around the target and later posing as the solution to it.

NASA went a mile and did it to Kenyans. Some Kenyans feel insecure with Jubilee in power, they are allowed to whine as they do but it's a useless move for NASA to join them in the whines rather than showing them they are the alternative.

Just the other day, they were up whining of the 'Jubilee Propaganda Billions.' Tell me who wins in politics without investing in any sort of propaganda. The whiners too are up and down building propaganda against Jubilee.

I am yet to see NASA change their tune in rallies from rhetoric to serious agendas. Remember, currently Jubilee is incomparable to NASA in terms of advancement of the agendas of re-election.

Clearly NASA has failed to come out the best alternative to Jubilee. They have chosen to behave like weak souls that cannot rise and foster change (if there's need for any).

On the other hand, Jubilee are always justifying the need for them to be in power for the next five years.

Winning trust has never been a simple thing in life, it always involves being strong when you are weak. This is what NASA ought to remember.

It has likened their political journey for this year to the biblical Journey to Canaan by the Israelites. One thing I know Joshua or Moses always avoided to do was looking weak before the Israelites even when they were. Most commanders always never do.

Whining is an open sign that you are weak and can't fight on. The constant whines keep taking away NASA scores.
