Of Kalonzo and Kiraitu: Something to declare

1. Kalonzo - Our "experts" told us at the time that the reason Kibs made it to be the sole opposition candidate was because he appeard to be a moderate and, to be a compromise candidate, had made a paltry few enemies on the local political scene throughout his career. A Mr. Nice Guy, if you know what I mean. Kalonzo loves to portray himself as such. There's an urgent need to not let him or anyone else get the big prize so easily this time round. He, like everyone of them, is a carcass fit for the hounds on this and other fora!

2. The Truth & Reconcilliation thing: I lost some friends and relatives to the ethnic clashes that rocked our country between 1992 and 1997. I was therefore pleasantly suprised when my editor at one of the Kenyan media houses assigned me to cover one of the public hearings of the Makau team. Makau, Mutava, Ali Shee and Amukowa Anangwe were all there. The stuff that came out of the day's hearings would make Escape from Sobibor look like a Sunday school picnic! So I was dissapointed by Kiraitu in this respect while he was still in charge of his justice docket, whatever the excuse. I hope Martha does something in this respect.
