Strange Bedfellows

"[Musalia] Mudavadi was the Finance minister in 1993. He first paid out the Sh5.8 billion in export compensation and then the Sh13.5 billion. I know what I am talking about. I stand for the truth and the VP and the President should come out and prove me wrong." ....Mr Odinga said he was ready to prove that it was Mr Mudavadi who authorised the Goldenberg payments.

Kibaki's Selective Amnesia

President Kibaki yesterday denied ever promising anybody that he would serve only for one term. And he went on to declare, for the second time in a week, that he was in the race for the presidency for another five years.
(Daily Nation Friday, February 2, 2007)

“It was hard to select the party's flagbearer. We all staked our claims with reasons. The reason that won the day was made by Kibaki after he made it clear he would be president for only one five-year term....Kibaki volunteered that proposal.”
The late Michael Kijana Wamalwa explaining on Nation TV’s StateCraft how the National Party of Kenya (NAK) agreed on a single presidential candidate. Kibaki never sought to correct Wamalwa not refute the allegation.

Angel of Death

I am going to stop at nothing until I make sure I express my feelings. I was peaceful until provoked and now I want to let Raila know that fire shall be returned with fire and I will make sure that I stop all the ODM rallies that will take place in Nairobi until I am given a chance to hold my rally....I told Raila to choose the plate he wants to use and from today all the sympathisers of ODM and LDP, who include police officers should know that I am capable of using similar force. This is just the beginning of a long battle... I will show them what I am best at."
Former Mungiki Co-ordinator Ndura Waruinge speaking at a press conference in Nairobi.
