The Punguza Mizigo referendum initiative though pupular doesn’t have the legal frameworks to mount a good challenge on the criminal aristocracy. It is a populist fad, with some God points.
I’ve written on this blog before about ways we can remove the current kleptocracy from power. This is not the way.
For one to effect change in their lives, they must be willing to die for it. The great American rapper Curtis Jackson also known as ’50 Cent’ captured it well, Get Rich or Die Trying, he said.
For political change to occur, a people must know the issues affecting them, we know, then fight for it with all their lives or die trying.
See, what’s the point of living in squalid conditions yet the money that is enough to end this is plundered everyday?
Protest to change, or Die trying, I say.
Ekuru Aukot, the Thirdway Alliance leader was in the run up to the second election of 2017 accused of siding with Jubilee, giving them a lifeline through which legally a repeat election could be held.
The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party had blocked all avenues and there was no way an election could be held, this would’ve led to a constitutional crisis which might have seen Uhuru Kenyatta go home, Kenya descend into anarchy or the handshake come alittle bit earlier with a bloated government.
Either way, we were fucked. But I’d prefer anarchy which is organized in terms of targeting thr leaders who have stolen from us for a long time.
This is the only way.
Now back to the refurendum push by Ekuru Aukot and company, The Elections Observation Group (ELOG) last week also doubted the signatures and other data collected by Punguza Mizigo; Read link below.
It is now emerging that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has launched investigations to ascertain if the claims that Ekuru bought the names of people from the Office Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP) are true.
Ekuru is said to have bough the names and worked backwards by hiring clerks to sign on behalf of the names.
A picture share by ELOG showed that in some instances, signatures were similar.
