Fact is Uhuru Kenyatta’s government has one of the worst records of extra Judicial killings of Youths from North Eastern Kenya.
It is also a fact that of all past regimes in Post- Independent Kenya, Uhuru has the best record of Incorporating the Northern Kenya Communities in his Government. Already 3 Cabinet Secretaries in his government are from the region; Adan Mohammed a Garre, Hassan Wario a Boran and Amina Mohammed a Somali.
In addition, several others serve as heads of State Corporations or members of powerful commissions.
Jubilee has had its weaknesses but truth is, it has in several ways given a new lease of life to a once severely marginalized Northern region as well as factoring it as an important Swing voter block in elections.
As we speak Uhuru is touring Wajir, Mandera and Garrisa with a bag of goodies. He has already toured Isiolo, Samburu And Marsabit Counties and already has key opinion shapers in His camp. Marsabit Governor, elected on an ODM Ticket in 2013, according to his insiders, is already warming up to Jubilee and is expected to shift with his Vast Gabra Community to the party.
And some of us, will in 2017 accuse IEBC of rigging elections. Kura zilitafutwa Kitambo.
