Luos abroad call Raila lies

The following is a must and excellent read. Something else that Kenyans should take note of is how, did Raila know of the two Albanians on our soil who were out to do us harm? Did anybody ask him for his source of information? None of the media, made mention of this stark fact. The cops, too, didn't (or did they?), ask him for proof. While he was right, how did he know?! Very, very strange, don't you think?

I totally agree with the description given of him, below. I suspected him to be so, and now, I have it straight from somebody who know him better. He sounds and behaves as a truly vengeful person and his aim is to get the presidency by hook or by crook, this time.

Also, the kinds of people he's keeping company with, is also highly suspect.

So, everybody and fellow voters - BEWARE!!!!


Read this. I believe its true. Do you?

Wajaluo Wenzangu,
It is time for right-thinking Luos to speak. It is very unfortunate
that a great lie is being told that all Luos are Raila damu and will
vote as a block for him. This is coupled with the other lie that all
Kenyans abroad support ODM. I can openly tell you that Raila has next
to no support here in Canada and in some Luo stronghold back home. On
his over-publicised visits here, he only managed to meet a handful of
his supporters.

It is time we made some facts clear. For starters, not all Luos follow
Raila like sheep. As we talk now, residents of my home constituency,
Rarieda, are the envy of the entire Luo land. From the time they voted
Honorable Raphael Tuju in, they have seen the kind of development
that they only dream about come to their door step. For too long now,
Luos have been cheated that the only Moses who will deliver them to
Canaan is an Odinga. The success of Tuju's effort have torn that
Jaramogi mystic into shreds. It is now clear that other Luos can lead.
However, instead of working with them, Raila wants to finish them.
Tuju has been hands-on in the setting up of the Rarieda water project.
Courtesy of the Internet, Raila can no longer hoodwink the rest of us
abroad. How can we dismiss the picture we saw of Tuju in a
construction worker's overalls supervising the construction of the
water pipes?

For over 40 years, luos have blindly followed the Odinga clan, and
what do they have to show for it? Nothing but abject poverty at the
grass roots. In the meantime, he has been raking money in.There is no
question that Raila is the richest Luo in the world.Yet his supporters
in Luoland and Kibera are some of the poorest people in Kenya . In a
very curious twist that only Luos can enlighten us on, while the likes
of Kenyatta and Moi were handing out goodies, plots and money to the
needy, poor Luos see nothing wrong in handing over their meager
earnings to Raila, all in the hope that once he is president, he will
magically transform Luoland into the garegd od eden . Yet it is well
known that Odingas have not brought an iota of development in Luoland.
Just compare Luoland to their neighboring Kisiiland. While Kisiis have
never even had a president, their hard work and development conscious
leadership is well-displayed by their stone houses with mabati roofs.
Now, visit Luoland and all you see are the same grass-roofed old round
huts that Speke and Grant found in the late 1800's! Yet Raila feels
no shame when he drives around there in his Sh 15 Million Hummer
Military vehicle for show.

In his selfish quest fo the presidency, Raila has been telling blatant
lies, hoping that he can develop a momentum that will usher him into
the high office before the people realise his lies. By then it will be
too late. Raila is a clever manipulator who is working on Kenyan's
predilection of being attracted by the grass on the other side of the
river, the unknown and any idea from abroad, and sometimes mistakenly
clamoring for change for the heck of change. We are therefore calling
out his lies now:

1. Raila's hatred of Kikuyus is a ploy. All he is doing is working up
the politics of the 1960's on the mindless Luo masses, yet Kenyans
have been busy building barriers across tribes. If he hated Kikuyus
that much, how could he let his son marry a Kikuyu just the other day?
As Kenyans we have seen the kind of bloodshed that tribal conflicts
can lead to. Think of the Rwanda genocide, Somali clan wars and the
continuing massacre in Sudan 's Darfur region. Is this the kind of
leadership Kenyans want? No!

2. Majimbo is a concept that has never worked anywhere in the world.
Again this goes back to the Jaramogi politics of 1960. At that time
the pros and cons of Majimbo were debated fair and square, and majimbo
lost. Balkanisation of any country has never worked and one needs not
look anyfuther than the Balkan states themselves. In the Euphoria of
breaking up the USSR , majimbos and countries were formed along tribal
lines. In less that three years, these breakway countries realised
their mistake and came together and formed the CIS union. Do we have
to break apart, kill each other, then regret later? From an economic
point of view,and the fact that in a true majimbo system, each jimbo
would be allocated developemnt funds based on their contribution to
the national kitty, what does Luoland have to offer except dwiddling
fish supplies? Raila did not raise a voice when Moi killed the sugar,
cotton and rice farming by allowing tax-free imports, in fact he
selfishly benefited from it.
Raila's socialist ideas are outdated: Cuban's can't wait for Fidel
Castro to die. North Korea is a dirt-poor country stuck in a
time-warp. The sole purpose of creating majimbo is to provide Raila
with a fiefdom to lord over once he leaves the presidency (assuming he
gets it) in 2017.

3. Raila killed the Constitution reforms. By cleverly buddling some
contentious issues with the main agenda, Raila was able to hoodwink
some people into voting against proposed constitution reforms during
the referendum. By now, Kenyans would be reaping from the benefits of
those reforms. Can he tell us why we need a figurehead president, if
the Prime Minister will end up doing what the current president is

4. Raila cannot deliver a new constitution in 100 days. Simple logic.
A constitution reform needs two-thirds majority vote in parliamennt.
There is now way he can gather that in 100 days knowing the hatred he
is causing. The law requires a referendum and that cannot be done in
100 days.

5. Raila's fight against corruption is a lie. While on the surface it
would look like Raila is out to fight corruption, the truth is that he
has been eating from the same corruption plate. This is precisely why
he cannot touch those he has eaten with. A case in point is the Kisumu
Mollasses plant. He was given this plant by Moi as a present for
delivering Luo's to Kanu. Then he cleverly cheated Luos to raise money
to buy the plant, money that he put in his pocket, and then allocated
only 5% shares to them. The rest of the 95% shares and the money he
collected he kept for himself. If he was clean and above board, shares
for the plant should have been floated in the open market for all
Kenyans to buy. He should have mobilised the various Luo
organisations and groups to buy blocks of shares so that even the
simplest sugar cane farmer would have had a portion of even one share.

6. Raila is selling the country to foreigners. Just the other day
Raila announced that investors would flood into Kenya when he comes
into power.What he didn't tell us is that he has been cutting deals
with foreigners to sell them Kenyan assets and institutions one he
comes into power.That has been a major reason for his numerous trips
abroad. This cannot be allowed. While Kenyans have demostrated a
hunger to invest in the stock market, Raila is selling us back to our
old Colonisers. How can we allow this?

7. Raila is very vengeful. Another lie. Reacting to talk of his
intended revenge on Moi and Kikuyus, Raila has responded that he will
not revenge. Yet, when he was chased out by women in Meru ( for some
reason reason he seems to bring out the wrath of women!), he was later
quoted saying that those regions that don't vote for him will cry come
December 29th. Which begs the question, if Raila won, would he be the
President of Kenya or Nyanza? We read in the bible that "Vengeance is
mine, says the Lord"..Raila is certaily not God. We cannot have a
president hell-bent on revenge. We saw how Moi devastated
non-Kalenjins (including Raila) when he came in with the idea of

8. Secret MOUs have been signed. This is an open secret. With pro-arab
support ,Raila has signed on to transform Kenya into a Muslim state,
something that would put Kenya at loggerheads with our western donors
and partners. This pact is in addition to the creation of a Jimbo la
Pwani, where a 10-mile wide strip along the Kenyan coast would be
ceded, again, to the Sultans of the gulf, whole will then appoint
Balala as Sultan. This will will result in the rest of Kenya being a
land locked country. Taxes would levied on anything that comes through
the port of Mombasa , including foodstuff. Kenya is predominantly
Christian, but with freedom of worship for everybody. We do not need
religious bigotry to lead us into faith-based chaos like those in
Afghanistan (Taribans), and Sudan (Sharia law).

9. It is do or die for Raila. Even if that means bloodshed. Just the
other day, the papers had the picture of Raila inspecting a guard of
honor. Since when did a private person in Kenya have a private army?
Is this not a signal for his intended take over of power by force? How
can Kenyans allow one man to lead us into bloodshed? We lost our
fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and children in the Coup he led in
1982. We say, Not Again!

10. Raila is a Liar and Cannot be trusted. Very true. He tells lies
knowing that the Common Mwananchi has no way to verify the truth.
Sometimes this is a deft trap to get into a name-calling contest with
Kibaki. Recently, Raila has been trying to woo the Muslim Vote by
harping on the extradited Kenyan-Somali terrorists. Yet he knows very
well that Kenya has extradition treaties with other countries (that is
how "Miracle Babies" child slave trader Gilbert Deya will be brought
back to Kenya to face the courts). In any case, why should the Kenyan
Tax payer spend money on the terrorits's trials when this is not our

The Bottom line: We need Raila to lead a strong opposition in
parliament but not as president.

Please pass this message to all Luos and right-thinking Kenyans. Luos
can no longer afford to be alienated from the rest of Kenyans simply
for the selfish satisfaction of One Dangerous Man (ODM). We want to
make it clear that not all Luos follow Raila senselessly like sheep.

You can fool some people some time, but you cannot fool all the people
all the time-Bob Marley.
