-------------------------------------------- Baba’s Failure Abroad ---------------------------------
How Washington DC snubbed Raila Odinga, the rebellion leader November 10, 2017

Raila Odinga took off to America on the big claim that he was going to speak to Congress, the American Parliament and present his demands for a fresh election in Kenya in January 2018 among other things.

Now, for a foreigner to be allowed to address the American Congress is a big deal. It shows that America recognizes you as a world leader and that they are sympathetic towards your cause. The only other platform bigger than speaking before congress is addressing the United Nations at their headquarters in New York. If you can manage either one of these two fetes, you have made it among nations, you are a guardian of progress and a member of the global democratic movement.

But if you try and fail to be allowed on either one of these floors as a foreigner…you have attracted the title of failure. You are less recognized than Robert Mugabe or Muamar Gaddafi, both seen as dictators by the west but both of whom have addressed the UN severally and without interruption.
Making it then to address Congress would have given Raila Odinga and his rebellion movement a boost of international recognition. It would tell them that America is on his side and all he needed to do is push Kenya to the brink.

But Raila has not been allowed to speak to Congress. He wasn’t even invited to enter the building. He has been wandering around Washington DC like any other Kenyan on holiday in the US capital. All those claims by his handlers and PR teams that he would speak at Congress and meet high level officials in a series of closed door meetings to discuss the ‘way forward’ have been revealed to be smoke and mist games.
The mirage of power is melting away from Raila. In Kenya he is used to bullying his way into recognition but that doesn’t wash with the Americans. They are weary of supporting another rebellion leader half-way around the world.

And they are tired of his antics that are often characterized by blaming them for failing to see things his way and declaring their support for his presidential bid as well as blaming them for the failures of democracy. He did it when he was touring the UK during his Chatham speech and it is expected he will do it again and again until he is well dead and forgotten. And Congress was not going to allow Raila to lecture them on their own democracy, it would be disrespectful if not embarrassing to them and Kenya.

So what has become of proud Raila in Washington? Well, if his Facebook page is anything to go by he has instead decided to meet lower level administrators such as Mr. Gregory Simpkins who is Staff Director, U.S. House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights and speaking to the Africa-America Institute (AAI). Fine men and groups but with little to no influence or mandate to steer actions towards Raila’s goals.
So the trip to Washington DC has failed to get him any of the recognition or powerful allies for his rebellion movement. He hasn’t met any significant officials, including leaders of the Democratic Party (Hillary Clinton’s party) who met him in 2016.
But why? Why won’t anyone meet Raila now when he needs them the most?
Simple answer, consequences.

You see, Raila Odinga keeps singing about the time he was Prime Minister when he is abroad and he sells his part of the coalition government as a success. But scrutiny has always left him flat footed when questioned about some of the things that went wrong in that coalition. For example his hiring policy which seems to be more ethnocentric than it is inclusive, then and now. He is at pains to explain how a majority of the diplomats to foreign postings he had a hand in selecting seems to be related to him in one way or another.

Then there are the scandals that he can’t wish away brought about by his association to James Orengo (during his tenure as lands minister) and Anyang’ Nyong’o (during his tenure as Health Minister). Compound this with the recent revelation that former ICC prosecutor Louis Oreno Ocampo might have cooked his prosecution and the main culprits are still on the loose, him being the likeliest.

Raila is a hot potato in Washington right now and no one wants to be found holding him. His resistance movement, pitting neighbor against neighbor, is being evaluated and its dangers weighed. But more immediately, they have failed to recognize him and by extension his rebellion and if Raila is a smart man, he will recalculate his next move rather than try force a recognition out of Congress.

I expected this chap you call Peter Ambuka would have something useful to say....
Stopped reading where I have highlighted. What is special about addressing UN when it is known every October all heads of state regardless of how they ascended to power are invited to New York to address the UN Assembly? Think Idi Amin and Hugo Chavez all went there and desecreated that Assembly. Their only qualification - head of some state pariah or otherwise.

And I thought you had a bigger brain than to tell us it is a "nice piece" only to end posting photoshop pictures. Useless.

Baba biggest problem is his delusions of grandeur, he thinks too highly of himself than the rest of the world does. If it’s not claiming that he brought democracy and new constitution to Kenya, it’s his people calling him Baba, Mandela of Africa, Joshua etc a humble man would shy from such accolades like the late Nyeri governor who told his people not to call him his excellency until he earns the title. He is too egotistical to admit losing an election even though a std1 pupil can show him the tribal numbers and how he cannot ever win a tribalised Kenyan election. After Uhuru is sworn in, all these shenanigans have to come to an end, the counties that are claiming self determined cannot even fight mosquitoes without money from the central govt, some of this places define poverty in Africa yet the lord of flies have convinced them that he can become their president and take them to Canaan, it’s absolute insanity. If he wants a referendum on self determination, let’s go for it, he will lose that too. Raila always fails in big moments, coup, 4 elections and even Nusu Mkate negotiations where he was handed a flag to soothe his bloated ego, there is nothing worse and pathetic than an egomaniac without the brain to back it up.
people of goodwill should join together and free Kenya from the grip of heartless thieves.

Raila Odinga should use his capital on a think tank of his own. He can spend his days charting peace and progress in failed states like Somalia and South Sudan. There is real opportunity there: creating peace in a wartorn country can give him the larger- than-life legacy he craves. The assignment itself can be gotten at the AU or the UN where he still enjoys camarederie.

Let me join the chorus... NDIYO BABA!!!
This man is drunk of himself and delusional. I still wonder how many of his sheeple wafuwasi believed he was going to address Congress. I think the US trip worked the opposite for him. Someone must have told him to stop tripping; thus the Friday demo was called off and today they now calling for a referendum. Other than power fro himself, does this guy know what he wants? Mudavadi has now become his new bride and the shagging continues.

Robina, Is this a joke...You and I know that he is the Lord of Violence. I don't know one thing he has been involved in where violence was not not present, or peace was present 8-)

Lol. He had raw wounds from the 2007/8 happenings. I recall him throwing fits over Zim as well, wanting Tsvangirai to prevail over Mugabe. It's a shame really. With his clock ticking a peace settlement somewhere would assuage his massive ego. "Chief Mediator" someplace like CAR would be okay.
The High-Level Panel was formed after the AU fired Kenyan prime minister Raila Odinga as mediator after his public altercation with the body's commission chair, Dr Jean Ping on Friday.

Odinga addressed a press conference on his findings before the matter had even been discussed by the Peace and Security Council Summit.

There was shouting, pushing and shoving when Dr Ping summoned AU security officials to stop Odinga's press conference.

Prior to that public spat, Odinga had been rejected by Ivorian President, Mr Laurent Gbabgo, over his bias towards presidential challenger, former Ivorian premier Mr Allasane Ouattara.
