Sonko's move to appoint Miguna Miguna is a bold flash of the middle finger in the eyes of the Mount Kenya fraternity which has been silently but viciously fighting him in Nairobi. But he isn't alone in this scheme. Sonko is a valuable player in one of the two emerging Jubilee camps. His political godfather in Jubilee is well known. Sonko is one of the main strikers in the Hustler team.
So what exactly is Miguna Miguna out to achieve and how is he planning to achieve it? I sometimes doubt whether Miguna Miguna is a real revolutionary at heart. True revolutionaries must always arm themselves with two important tools, other than their bravery: STRATEGY & PATIENCE. MM lacks both.... The man's finger is always on the trigger and he has this uncanny habit of pulling the damn trigger on anybody who dares have an opinion contrary to his. He ends up attacking strategic friends who could come in handy later.
And just like that, the previous issue is instantly consigned to the archives of history. Nobody gives a hoot about it thereafter. If Kenyans were to be wild animals, they would be warthogs. Ngiri. This animal with prominently protruding teeth has the shortest memory that you can ever think of. If you kick it so hard, it will run away at full speed for one minute, and then suddenly forget that you hit it and come straight back to you as if nothing happened!
However, the bottom line is; the "boy shaod" will be getting tonnes of free marketing in the next few days. Even those who have never heard of his existence will be seeking to know him better and probably download some of his songs. Ideally, that kind of marketing could cost several tens of millions. In other words, Ringtone Apoko will be riding on the back of Zari Hassan - the boss lady's fame for a while, not only in Kenya but in the entire of East Africa and beyond. Get the point?
Mr kalonzo Musyoka concluded his venomous attack on the introduction of multiparty democracy and its proponents by congratulating the Daniel Moi government for detaining the people referred to as “the subversives.” saying that, “I would like to congratulate the very gallant act by members of the security forces in apprehending these people and safely keeping them far from us.”
