You need to look for another straw. I can tell you for free amongst kalenjin; the people who hate raila most are kipsigis; Mau was kipsigis land; Mau IDPS are kipsigis.Clearly you're stuck in a time-wrap. Kalenjin gave Luo the benefit of doubt in 2007...Raila squandered that opportunity. Kalenjin aren't stupid to re-elect him;
The next straw i see people lurching on is the kikuyu/RV Land questions.
I guess you never heard of 92 clashes pitting kalenjin against luos, gusii, kikuyu and Luhya.
I guess you never heard of this yr land clashes in Chemelil.
Kalenjin land questions doesn't spare ODINGA; Odinga is infact responsible for about the same size of land that was grabbed from kalenjin..if not bigger.
Kenyatta folks grabbed part of Nakuru and Uasin Gishu.
Jaramogi orchestrated an even larger land grab of Borabu settlement scheme; Chemelil-Muhoroni Sugar belt and Tranzoia including manipulating Mt elgon to go to western.All this Odinga did in 1962-1963 by manipulating the boundaries of provinces and districts to steal Kalenjin land...and of course "buying" 500 acres in Chemelil scheme.
Kalenjin are more or less done with Kikuyus; the next war will be btw Kalenjin and Luo; Ohoo Kalenjin love Luo
so much they would re-elect Raila even after he treated them like SHIET.
2007 was the first and perhaps the last time Kalenjin worked with Luo politically...and it took a huge leap of faith from Kalenjin..because they KNEW ODINGA very well..and that explain why they left him high and dry at first sign of trouble
Nothing could be MORE RIDICULOUS.
You need other straws...this aint working like ICC ONE.
It either Uhuru or Ruto. Once that change..i'll let you know.

-Make sure he does not go to the second round with Uhuru , otherwise Kalenjin vote (100% kipsigis ,50% Nandi ) will go to Raila .
