The vast majority of Jubilee Supporters i have talked to are wondering why Uhuru can't leave Magara alone. This is doing nothing but alienating Kisiis. Today, there were demonstrations in Nyamira, and Uhuru will be defending himself again.nowayhaha wrote: ↑Thu Sep 14, 2017 4:25 amSalty do you know that any misstep or perception that Jubilee is not acting on NASA strategies through Judiciary will lead to apathy in Rift Valley and Mt Kenya ? Its MT Kenya electorate who were asking the other day that they elected MPs to defend Uhuru where are they ? What really do you want ?SaltyLight wrote: ↑Thu Sep 14, 2017 4:13 amJudicial activism will always be there for as long as we a have stupid constitution that considers the Judiciary as the supreme organ of government. I don't think maraga did anything in bad faith, if there is any partisan person, it's the DCJ. Maraga is just emotional and he is not going anywhere. This will give raila space to talk about. It's nauseating that Jubilee would allow a Kikuyu MP to do such. There are Luo Jubilee bloggers that would be good for such; and the Jubilee should only play in the backstage.nowayhaha wrote: ↑Thu Sep 14, 2017 3:51 am
Where Jubilee erred prior to 08 Aug elections was to take on some of the Judges decisions head on even when it was clear NASAs scheme of derailing the elections was being aided by the Judiciary , when they did so it was a little bit to late and some of the rulings had a big impact to IEBC preparedness, operations and conducting the 08 Aug elections , take for example Maina Kiais ruling which was being quoted time again during the petition.
Jubilee cant afford to do the mistake once again , Most important is their support base they feel disenfranchised , if Jubilee lets Judiciary continue operating the way they are Apathy will kick in , remember Moi won in 97 because the opposition support base felt there was no need of voting. secondly NASA is headed back to the courts with an array of petition to make sure elections wont happen on Oct 17 and if the happen to have as much irregularities as possible so that either they go back to Wakoras court or have a Nusu mkate government. The strategy is to attack now , hopefully by then CJ would have stepped aside as he tries to defend himself in JSC. Also it a warning shot to the judiciary that the will of the people cannot be subverted by Judicial activism .
Uhuru can focus on increasing the turnout by telling his supporters "we need to show them this time". Ngunjiri and friends should make ANY legislative changes that are necessary to avoid relying on technology, while forming the bulk of the negotiation teams. They should make their demands to IEBC and stop this issue of saying that they don't care.
Jubilee has been beaten like a burukenge when it comes to civil society. Uhuru wants to act democratic and the "nice guy". Why doesn't he have his own civil societies that can make petitions to remove Maraga? Where was he when all these people were being fixed into the judiciary? Where are his supporters in LSK? What happened to the NGO bill that was supposed to reign in the evil society?
This petition will leave uhuru very weak and beaten.
