I would like to invite you to join Jubilee. I know for several years, you have believed that Uhuru is the devil incarnate. I know you have believed that Raila is the Mkombozi Shupavu.
But just like Teenagers, we are all allowed to have fantasies. But when realities of life hit home, we all changed our minds.
Jicho Pevu, by now you should have realised that your childhood hero Raila is a fraud. You must have realised that the deep pocketed Joho calls the shots, and Raila only responds to deep pocketed fellows.
You must have seen how drug barons like Raphael Wanjala were given the ODM ticket in Budalangi, while popular candidates like Nakitare were thrown out. You saw what happened in Busia and Nyamira.
You must have thought that the years of sycophantic support you gave Baba would spare you. But, you were wrong. ODM is tightly controlled by the Drug Lords you famously exposed, but conveniently edited your reports to omit those close to Baba. For your great sycophantic efforts to hide Baba from the dirt and all your efforts to shield Baba from his mega corrupt deals- you must have felt entitled to the ODM ticket. But, you were dead wrong.
In Jubilee, we are not perfect. We have our weaknesses. But one thing is clear, in Jubilee our overall leader Uhuru Kenyatta is never involved in suspect deals. You will never see Uhuru involved in suspect deals to rig people out. If things go wrong, Uhuru takes responsibility and demands fresh processes.
On corruption and rigging, we may never say that Jubilee is 100% clean. But you can be sure that in Jubilee, if caught- Uhuru will never defend you.
In ODM, Raila is the mastermind. So, there is no way he can take action against his own schemes.
Jicho Pevu, you may have to change to Jicho Mpya, as you see reality from a totally new perspective.
