It's time for the retiring right Hon PM to move on
08 April 2013, 12:16
Last Saturday the supreme Court made a ruling that validated the election of Uhuru Kenyatta.
Yes, it might not have gone down well with a section of Kenyans who felt that they had been robbed off their democratic right if the suicide cases reported amongst CORD supporters are anything to go by.
However, in my opinion, I think it's time to put that behind us and embark on National building.
In his statement to the nation after the ruling, the PM was on record for stating that, 'even though we might not agree with the courts decision, it was final and as law abiding citizens, we have to make that one sacrifice, put Kenya, our beautiful motherland, first before anything else'.
It is along these lines that I beg to differ with the PM's sentiments when he paid a visit to Kisumu.
First, we who subscribe to the Christian faith understand that, all leadership comes from God, whether good or bad.
Secondly, it is important to understand that, due to the prevailing circumstances and time, Pilate, unlike Dr Mutunga, passed the mantle to the people. It is the people who chose Barnabas against Jesus and not the other way ... and more so, it was the only way for Jesus' mission on earth to be fulfilled.
So saying Raila was sacrificed, of which am not sure, for Uhuru, may be, and I repeat, just may be, was for the greater benefit of Kenya, if what he quoted is anything to go by.
My humble plea to our Right honourable PM is, whatever happened happened and we cannot change it at least for the next five years ...
It is his responsibility to ensure that his die hard supporters are not left behind in the spirit of nationhood.
Let’s not push our people further away from the rest of Kenyans, let’s build one Kenya.
Let's embrace what the VP Kalonzo said; national healing and not building hatred among communities.
The right Honourable PM has the capacity and will power to do this and I believe he will.
All eyes are on you Raila Amolo Odinga. Do Kenya proud as you have always done before.
