Si we wait and see if Uhuru, Ruto, Kalonzo, or even Mudamba holds free a fair party elections before we start vomiting all over our shoes with this word dictator. RV's theory that ODM and Raila are done is being forced fed to us without any evidence at all. Raila has always received more votes than there are luos. Kibaki also received more votes than there are kikuyus in Kenya. This means Kenyans do not vote based on tribe alone. There are Kenyans who vote only for their tribemates, but not every tribe has a serious presidential contender and therefore they will vote for a person from another tribe based on other factors. Let me give you an example, If Uhuru is allowed to run, he will get a lion share of Kikuyu vote, based on tribal vote, but he will not get Kalenjin vote in the same ratio as Kikuyu votes. Ruto's Kalenjin vote is not transferable to Uhuru in the same ration. When you have a strong candidate like Raila running with Uhuru, both will get their tribal votes but the votes of the other tribes will not be transfered easily based on the popularity of their supporters in those tribes because the leadership of these tribes will also be split. The notion that Uhuru will take the entire Kalenjin vote, the entire Kisii vote, the entire Luyhi vote, the entire coast vote, and that only luos will vote for Raila is the dumness idea I have ever heard. The leadership of all tribes will be divided.
You are puking all over yourself! Kenyan politics is not that complicated to decipher. In pretty much every major tribe, the tribe lord or tribal leader commands a lion’s share if not all of the votes in that tribe; another thing, there are only less than 10 tribes and tribal enclaves that accounts for nearly 80% of Kenyan population; kamatusa, Gema, luo, luhya, kamba, gusii, mijikenda......and maybe two other more. Based on election pattern of 1992,1997,2002,2007 there is one thing that remains constant; Tribe lord's power is immeasurable...let feature the last two elections: in 2002, raila was the tribe leader(king maker or whatever you want to call) and Kibaki was the reciever of the blessing; in 2007, wsr was the tribe lord, and raila was the reciever but the votes were not enough or elections were stolen(but you get the theory) .....as long as this theory still holds water in today’s Kenya and alignment/realignment is trekking south(tribal), then RAILA AMOLO ODINGA is simply kaput unless he pulls a kibaki(steal votes)
