Which Way Now Hon.Kalonzo Musyoka

As a very concerned Kenyan and a keen follower of what is happening in the political arena especially within our political parties wish to take this opportunity to address one of the Cord coalition leaders Hon.Steven Kalonzo Musyoka.

Sir, or should I call you Man Stevo, my brother in Christ? Whichever name you choose, allow me to address you using this public means of communication as I happen not to have the privilege of meeting you in person or attend any of your coalition strategic meetings in Naivasha that was meant to determine your political survival in the next 5 years or so. As a country we are greatly indebted to our creator for giving us a peaceful and a beautiful country with very splendid natural resources that comprises of both the flora and fauna. We also need to be grateful for the different gifts He has given us such as; the wildlife which has been and always will be a huge tourism attraction in our country. Within the wildlife, we have different animals and creatures such as the birds and to be more specific the Eagle.

I have done a study on different birds that we have and their traits. When I came across the Eagle I immediately thought about you. The eagle normally builds its nest mostly 0n tall trees or on high cliffs just the way you have build yourself politically and rose to the highest position as a vice president. Don’t get all excited because the eagle also lays two eggs, but the older, larger chick frequently kills its younger sibling once it has hatched and the parents takes no action to stop the killing. My apologies sir, but you have been “killed politically” by your elder brother Raila Odinga and we the Kenyan voters (“parents”) will only sit back and watch. Your coalition marriage was only meant for convenience and now its time is up.  Believe me deep down Raila’s heart he is craving to file a divorce with you because you are now a liability and this can be proven by him insisting on staying outside the system and concentrate on building his main party ODM despite the massive staged pressure from some of his sycophants.

Also when the eagle reaches the age of 30 years and above, their physical body condition tends to deteriorate making it experience some difficulty to survive. What excites me the most is that the eagle never gives up, what it does is that it retreats to the mountain top and for a period of five months or so of which in your case will be five years or less goes through a metamorphosis. It goes through a very painful and excruciating process of first knocking off its beak by banging it against a rock, plucks out its talons and then the feathers. During this period it is normally fed and protected by other eagles. Every stage it goes through a process of re – growth on every removed body parts takes place.

Sir, it is unfortunate but after being in politics for close to 28 years, you need to take time off and under go a political metamorphosis. You need to look back and take stock of your political life. Analyze the good and bad experience you have gone through as a political leader in this country. Firstly, you need to break your beak of having your followers lead you, and that’s why your lieutenants the likes of Hon. Muthama can stand and declare without your approval or consent that you are going to form a coalition with a political party and soon after you run to the press or public gatherings and deny those claims and a day after you sign a coalition deal with the same party and campaign half heartedly because deep down you are not comfortable.

Secondly, you need to remove your talons of trying to please every Kenyan and especially the Christians. Thirdly you need to pluck out the feathers of indecisiveness’ that has caused you to be labeled a “water melon”. Sir, as a leader their comes a time when the decision you take concerning a matter especially a national one may be unpopular to many and this is where your role as a leader get tested. Currently, no Kenyan trusts you and even those around you are just clinging on you for their own selfish gain.

Probably you are afraid of going into a political oblivion but we will let your political lieutenants to feed you on what is happening politically and once in a while, we will pick a few thoughts from you concerning how the Jubilee government is doing. Sun Tzu wrote in “The art of war”, “during a time of war any perfect general always knows when to advance and when to retreat.”It is time you retreat Hon. Steven Kalonzo Musyoka.
