This became quite evident when an attempt was made on the life of Yebei's widow; a hapless mother of three, all aged below seven years by then. It was an utterly horrendous attack. I know it because I was by then living in the same compound with the lady in Eldoret. She was just two weeks old in our compound, having moved from another neighbourhood on discovering that suspicious characters were constantly trailing her car.
If he were to be civil and diplomatic enough, he would refer to Haiti and African states as third world or developing countries. And this is a tag we've proudly carried around our necks, like some kind of golden medallion, for far too long. Never mind that our incorrigibly corrupt leaders perennially run to the west, begging bowl in hand, after rapaciously plundering our rich resources! So what dignity is there in being referred to as a third world country and meekly accepting it? What difference is there between a third world country and a shit-hole" country? If I may ask.
The scale of evasiveness and impunity exhibited by this supposedly independent body, especially when the Supreme Court recently ordered scrutiny of its servers and original electoral documents, is not only numbing but absolutely mind-boggling. What is even more vexing is the fact that IEBC’s impunity seems to emanate from evidently powerful dark forces that have, hitherto, firmly held the electoral body and the entire country hostage. To make things worse, the international community has proved that democracy in third world countries only matters when the Western Powers’ interests are at stake.
The just concluded polls have shown that the leaders from the two largest communities in the country are not only ready to use their communities' numerical strength to retain the country's top leadership for ages, but they are also prepared to employ the state powers and machinery, which they happen to have a firm control over, to manipulate elections in their favor.
Apparently, Jubilee banked on two wishes: That NASA disintegrates through their supposed weak link - Kalonzo or Raila fails to become its flagbearer. Forget about Jubilee's reverse psychology antics that they really wanted to face Raila because he is beatable. Raila has beaten them before and they know how hard he hits. And it turns out that they badly underestimated Kalonzo.
