It is becoming increasingly clear as you’ll agree with me that the Jubilee leadership has the worst crop of advisors .
Maybe the said advisors are pathetically green in what they should advise the leadership on, or they’re too afraid to speak the truth as it is. But again, it can’t be fear, it’s wallowing in sycophancy to please the powers that be.
Mark you, the supreme court, convinced that there were irregularities, played politics and saved the president face by only “accusing IEBC of negligence and disregard to law”. Maybe the judges didn’t want to give the jubilee leadership double heartbreak.
Hence, to me, the president and his handlers should be grateful that the court didn’t expose their thievery publicly and to regain the trust of even international friends by putting the IEBC on the defensive.
If Senator Kipchumba Murkomen (who is viewed as Dp Ruto’s voice), the lawyer who couldn’t find his voice during the legal debates, comes out with the full jubilee battalion of Mps and plays honest for once and hypocritically bashes IEBC for failing to follow the constitution which consequently robbed Jubilee of its win, if it ever was, then a neutral observer would try to make some sense in the claims by the outgoing president that the fault was purely by the electoral poll.
But listening to our learned friends from the jubilee side defending the failed IEBC without tiring, loudly tells everyone that they were not just the beneficiaries of the rigging but the orchestras, the masterminds of the newfound rigging norm by Kenya’s electoral body.
For goodness sake and from a moral perspective, Jubilee should do this country one favour, let them let IEBC carry its own cross (although they’re partners in crime) for a better positioning in history’s books.
Maybe that’s what we will remember them for after they lose in the coming repeat presidential elections.
