FEW PEOPLE TURNED UP TO REGISTER AS VOTERS IN NYANZA, MY TAKE:
By Hon Jim Bonnie
IEBC organised a one week voter education and registration and what is the news coming out of Nyanza? Lowest voter turnout! Do you know why? ODM and, to be specific, Nyanza politicians are full of talk but less actions. They have very sharp beaks used to sting the government but do less to encourage their people to register as voters.
Instead of using that opportunity to mobilise people to go and register, they are busy attacking Ruto, preaching how Uhuru is underperforming and lamenting how IEBC in romance with jubilee will rig 2017 elections. Even if you are a potential voter, what would motivate you to register?
You also saw how we were busy launching pay bill numbers for Raila’s SMS and Baringo. Even with these ugly realities, some ODM bushbabies still sing that Raila will be the president. Loool. I would wish that Raila rise to presidency but i don’t see him working towards that. No one has ever won presidency by talking too much and doing nothing.
Imagine instead of sending his troops to the ground, Raila was busy saying that he will boycott elections if IEBC is not reformed? I think my party leader has become sort of a joke! So, as other regions register high voter turnouts, we are busy engaging in sideshows then we will start singing in high volumes the omawa song?!
ODM incompetence is stinking and is producing a stench of failure. I am always boxed when i say these things, maybe i am misunderstood or just people want to massage failures. But where are we really headed to? Take this to the bank, Railas presidency is headed to the morgue, signs are crystal clear.
Elections are not won on election day, it is a long time strategic plan just like the vision 2030. For those waiting for IEBC to be headed by angels, continue in your sick dream. Whoever bewitched us should clear the spell please!
