I wish those handling Jakom knew the expectations of Kenyans. I also wish they knew the breed of opponent we’re facing.
Uhuru isn’t Kibaki whom we whitewashed in 2007. Uhuru is Uhuru and I’d you add Ruto, ewoooo!
Anyway, why for example was the so called State of the Nation by cord not published and publicized? Why was that an important event so casually communicated?
There is a level of seriousness we expect from some of you folks. You see, that statement by Raila was good but see, it hasn’t generated the interest and debate associated with it.
Two things explain this; either the public wasn’t whipped more than enough to raise their expectations or most Kenyans were less just concerned.
Why would a state of the nation address by opposition be attended by a handful of MPs, hangers-on and of course journalists?
Can someone tell me why we didn’t buy airtime in any one of the TV stations for live transmission? Are we too poor, less concerned or used to free things?
Don’t tell me about the free KTN news.
Let me tell you, a State of the Nation Address isn’t a press conference. This must be understood.
Another thing. How will Kenyans take Raila Odinga seriously if he keeps on addressing their plight from conference halls of very expensive hotels?
This is where Raila’s PR comes in. Couldn’t we hire venue at KICC grounds or anywhere for the event? I’m not talking about a public rally.
It’s weird that some people still think that PR is just about taking Raila to Nakumatt and taking his photos with onlookers as he buys biscuits.
And funny enough, I’ve talked to a number of MPs who have confirmed to me that they only learnt of the cord State of the Nation Address on social media last night.
