convincingly to warrant the title of tribal chief of his tribe. So what to do? Perhaps the public has begun its slow disconnect from the old order and the media is still hangovered from politicians of the old order.
The more we hear of politicians winning while riding bicycles, the more we see of an order and culture being challenged, where for instance money was the precursor to electoral victory.
The only place that this seems to be applicable is Nairobi, where voters are still hostage to narratives of money or glamour, as evidenced by rejection of Boniface Mwangi for Jaguar, a third-rate Musician who only glorifies materialism and kuvuka border, as if that was the highlight of his time on earth. Starehe voters are a total disappointment to humanity.
It seems that the aspiration of every Eastlands youth is to be a matatu tout or join the drug business. Such misguided folk! Whatever the case, those who think that simply because we sided with NASA and they’ve lost, that we’ll also be confined to irrelevance, are sadly mistaken. Raila didn’t have agents in many tallying centers.
His PR team was a shamble, and he didn’t pay a single cent to bloggers like us, who thought we were fighting to a just cause. His disorganisation was the weakest link in the entire campaign. We have no regrets whatsoever, and would do it again.
Because we are not guided by stomach politics like our fellow 36 bloggers. We fought a good fight. NASA have only themselves to blame.
We are now ready for all the insults and repercussions. That’s what standing for something entails. Since we know how the Kenyatta family thinks and operates, isolating critics and dissidents from the gravy-train and only inviting family members and close sycophants is what they do best.
And we are ready to suffer the consequences. 36 Bloggers have no further use to the regime, so they might as well stop antagonising or taunting us because they’ll be begging to buy them beers in bars when we meet.
