Kenyans spoke and on March the 9th a winner was declared, President Uhuru Kenyatta was announced as the fourth President of the Republic Of Kenya five days after voters cast their votes on March the 4th 2013. Despite the wait in the words of Yo Gotti “Numbers don’t Lie” well not with the IEBC (Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission)at work, so after a weekend of celebrations work can finally resume and all International media outlets who unashamedly awaited a repeat of 2007 can pack up and return to report on other global issues, now we await the official swearing in of which will be held on the 9th April 2013. As with any new government assuming office one can only pray that some of the promises made will be adhered to and fulfilled or at least attempted to.
The past weeks have continued to mark a stagnate transition of power for the Jubilee coalition, with the opposition CORD filling a petition to the Supreme Court on the results that was overruled and backed the initial results that where announced on the 9th of March as the true number and a representative of the will of Kenyans. Well that ruling did not mean curtains call for the CORD leaders and reports on the 6th of April marked the announcement of a strategy to get both Hon Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka in parliament.
Simply put for a price, salary of five years CORD wants elected members in parliament to give up their seat so that both leaders will have a place in parliament, the only point of action now is to find a loop hole in the IEBC rules so that the plan can be put in place.”By any means necessary” sure this is not what Malcolm X spoke of but the quote reflect the power hungry characteristics that have been displayed throughout the process of this election by the CORD Party, with all due respect democracy is ‘Majority rules’ and attempts to change elected members of parliament by forcing a by election and paying people has to be illegal if not morally wrong.
