Be prepared for a NASA government

In my personal opinion, the moment of truth is beckoning. There are only three options left as at now. First is for NASA to take over government, second is for Jubilee to form a coalition government with Raila as president, and lastly is for NASA to pull Jubilee's pants down after a runoff.
The option of rigging doesn't count considering the fact that NASA has Orengo for courts and Jubilee on the other hand has Murkomen for TV. We have all witnessed the results preliminarily. Before God anoints Odinga, he first sends Odunga to prepare the way. That's how God works since ancient times.
Any wise person can tell that Jubilee is afraid of elections and while blaming it on Nasa, they are busy strategizing how to postpone elections. Their support for IEBC is but a strand behind a marionette. The terrain is tough for Uhuruto duo folks. It is a byebye moment in the offing.
Fast forward :
1. Corruption :
Transparency International ranked Kenya as one of the most corrupt in the world. Those are facts seconded by members of the public through numerous uncleared cases, some pending in court whereas others swept under the carpet.
Talking much about this topic shall arouse chronic malady in the hearts of the citizens of Kenya. For that reason, I choose not to discuss much. By the way, greetings to Waiguru and Kabura wherever they are.
Apart from Esipisu and Raphael Tuju and a few others used as a paint brush of the face of Kenya, any other tribe apart from the Kikuyu literally chewed a bone.
Kalenjin nation is no exception. Should you calculate the percentage of top government officials, you will realize how names betray us.
Maybe you will argue that I am igniting tribal animosity by tagging government workers as being members of a specific community, but would it heal a wound to have people from one region dominate government?
I stand corrected but as Kenyans, a poor Kikuyu and a poor Luo belong to the same tribe. We all love Kenya though.
3. Contested election :
Whereas Jubilee was cleared by the supreme court in 2013, the voters of the opposition still hold it dear that they actually were rigged out.
With the unwavering and spirited comeback, the opposition stands advantaged. Whereas there will be a good percentage of Jubilee voters dissatisfied and demoralized, supporters of the opposition have no reason not be contented with their leaders.
On top of that, William Ruto has gone ahead to destroy cornerstones like Isaac Rutto who held Jubilee in the high place. On that note, Hon.Joyce Cherono Laboso should be informed that she has her head already halfway the crocodile's mouth and should be afraid about the swallowing come August 8 this year.
4. Insecurity :
At no other time in Kenya's history have Kenyans died like flies before. Jacob Juma died: he was forgotten, Meshack Yebei: murdered: have since been forgotten, Lawyer Kimani: butchered: is water under the bridge, Soldiers in Amisom mission ambushed: is becoming the new normal. If we may ask, does justice have any meaning at all?
The calamities faced in drought-hit areas hitherto is to blame for the government's unpreparedness in disaster management. The list is as long as we remain threatened and insecure. The constitution dictates that every citizen be treated equally, with fairness, dignity, and respect. It seems Jubilee reads a different script.
5. Unimplemented pledges :
Jubilee promised laptops for school children in the first 100 days. The kids whose promise remains unfulfilled are now in class four. As expected of any pledge, there should be four generations of computer literate Kenya children.
The forty percent proceeds meant for county governments, months to elections stands at less than 15%. Youth graduate from universities each and every year, yet there are no jobs available.
The list is endless such that we have enough left for readers to add onto the list bullet after another.
To cut the story short, Kenyans of today are enlightened. Many benefited from Kibaki's free education whereas the masses are always informed through social media, radio, television and civil societies.
And before a period rests on its eternity , remember Uhuruto paid the goldenberg debt against the wishes of Nasa and Kenyans. If for sure Wanjigi was involved as Mr.Samoei claims, why then didn't they hold him accountable?
And while we remain peace loving Kenyans, be prepared for a NASA government.
