Prince Eyango hits NBO this weekend!


May 20, 2011 – More than two decades after he first came to Nairobi, musician Prince Eyango of the 1987 hit song “You Must Calculer” returns this weekend to perform at festivities set up to celebrate Cameroon’s National Day.

Prince Ndedi Eyango, who is now a musician and producer based in the United States, is native to Cameroon.


He arrives Friday night from Douala, Cameroon on a Kenya Airways flight, one of the sponsors of Saturday’s Gala Dinner event.

In true West African spirit, Cameroonian cuisine and fashion will be plentiful at the annual celebration, marking 39 years of re-unification of the French speaking and English speaking regions of Cameroon. It also Marks the 51st anniversary of the country’s independence.

Prince Eyango burst into the scenes in 1987 with the hit song “You Must Calculer”. Five years and several popular tracks later he moved to the United States.

He owns a production company, Preya Music, and in the year 2000 was nominated in the World Music category at the LA Weekly Music Awards.

A good number of the Kenyan population is familiar with “You Must Calculer”, including Kenya Airways Group CEO and Managing Director Titus Naikuni.

“As a big supporter of African culture, art and music, Kenya airways is proud to be associated with Prince Eyango, a leading African musician,” he said in a statement.

    The Problem with Ngunjiri is misrepresentation of basic and widely available Facts, let me just point out a few…1. Kriegler main finding was that there was no vote that was stolen from KICC, lets all remember that ODM’s main argument is that votes were stolen at kicc, Kriegler also re-wrote the famous 47 constituencies where it was alleged rigging happened reducing them to 18 and a majority were actually in ODM areas, Yes Kriegler said the election was highly mismanaged and it was diffucult to pronounce who won and on that no one disagreed,but he was also clear that the Civil Society wrote reports that misinformed world powers at one time Harun Ndubi had to defend Kanyingi when Kriegler dismissed him telling him, ” you are the people who caused the fire, you are the ones who made Kenya burn, you say theft where is it? you say rigged where is the rigging? you say manipulated where is the evidence?” to that class of Kanyingi is where I place Ngunjiri and the dismissal by Kriegler is the same one I gave Ngunjiri……2. I see nothing wrong with anyone saying you should join TNA thats the business of political competition, as for UK being on political diapers when Martha and Kiraitu were politicians i think that is how we define crap, maybe to Nguinjiri Political wisdom is a monopoly of age not the vision you hold for Kenya, so as long as you are old you have the answers for Kenya and if you are young you better shut up and I rest on that one…..3. On the issue of 2002 and 2007 – lets even assume that Uhuru had no choice but concede defeat in 2002, as he says Uhuru lost with a wide margin unlike in 2007 when Railla lost in a contested election…so let me ask in 1997 Uhuru went to the Catholic Church and conceded defeat in the parliamentary election, what did Raila do? yet he had lost the election in the same year?he called a press conference together with Kibaki and rejected the results…its a culture, conceding defeat is not an event its a culture…

      ningepewa otpion,nikuamini wewe Itumbi nami niuone ufalme wa mungu,au nimuamini Ngunjiri nami niingie jahanam,heri jahanam kuliko kuamini uliyo yaandika hapa!

      2002 elections were supervised by a balanced team picked by both opposition and the governing party (remember IPPG?). Kenyatta and Co had to concede as they had representation in the electoral commission.2007 election fiasco and it’s aftermath was as a result of skewed electoral team. Remember the opposition was refused representation in this team creating apprehension as to the authenticity of the results. You know what follows after that Dennis!

      1. Mahugu Joel Julius Kinyanjui November 19th, 2012 at 2:34 pm

        yua memory is low… i remember RAO saying that the team at EC should not be touched if we were to have a fair election. he got the team as was…

        1. Abdulkarim Njoka November 26th, 2012 at 1:39 pm

          BOSS waishi wapi wewe,commissioners karibu wote wa EC walitolewa wakawekwa ‘friendly commissioners’ the only person who was retained is old kivuitu na alikuwa hashiki mita ng’o!!

  2. Gideon November 18th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    To say that Raila and ODM do not bear political responsibility for the violence is simply insulting to the victims of that violence where 1300 were killed and over 3000 women raped with chants of NO RAILA NO PEACE why couldnt he have gone to court why did he call for mass action and he knew very well how tense the country was and emotions were high. Finally why did he not call for an end to the violence until Naivasha where it was his kinsmen who were being killed

    1. Abdulkarim Njoka November 19th, 2012 at 12:41 pm

      Boss there is nothing in the penal code called political responsibilty,stop wasting your breath by amplyifying what some confusionists are telling you!

      1. Gideon November 19th, 2012 at 8:44 pm

        Its not about the penal code brother its about in whose name people were killed you speak loudly yet you didnt see arrow toting goons kill your family while chanting NO RAILA NO PEACE or lose everything you had as you had to run for your life and hide in the bushes like a dog and what you hear from the radio is that some guy is calling for mass protest when you are being killed in his name when you experience that then we can discuss who are the confusionists

        1. Abdulkarim Njoka November 26th, 2012 at 1:45 pm

          still i read nothing criminal in what you have written .My friend its either someone committed a crime or not and if they commited one ,the charge sheet in court needs to be specific about what law was broken,the rest ni maoni tu.For your information and please research on this,MASS PROTEST/ACTION is not a crime anywhere in the world!!! so wanasiasa wa kwenyu wanapokudanganya eti aliye itisha mass protest ni yeye responsible for PEv killings,chanuka!!! hauwezi mshtaki mtu na madai hayo.mass action si uvunjaji wa sheria!!!!

          1. Kwessi Pratt November 26th, 2012 at 5:10 pm

            @Abdulkarim Njoka: You live in a unreal world pal! You want to tell us that murderous mass action is not a crime? Mass action can ONLY be legal if no murderous violence is involved. Once mayhem, destruction, rape and murder take charge, that can NEVER be described as protest at all. It turns in to ugly crime pal!

          2. Abdulkarim Njoka November 26th, 2012 at 5:27 pm

            There is nothing like murderous mass action.mass action is one thing and murder is another.please stop makling a mockery of the years you spent in school! kwani serikali ,majaji,dircetor wa public prosecution hawayajui hayo!! mazee wacheni kuwa mislead na wanasiasa wa kabila zenu-coz thats what we kenyans do best,believe in everything politicians from our areas belt

          3. Abdulkarim Njoka November 26th, 2012 at 5:59 pm

            Boss anyone who killed ashtakiwe aliye rape kadhallika,mwizi same but my friend you can never prosecute a CALL for mass action!!! it is not a crime ,sorry but thats the truth mbichi mbichi!!!!

          4. Kwessi Pratt November 27th, 2012 at 11:08 am

            @Abdulkarim: Are trying to say that those guys who were killed in Eldoret church and other areas were caught in an ordinary mass action? Perhaps, your beautiful years in school were only confined to playing football, that has endlessly captured the imagination of the PM! However, ignorance is bliss, bath in it pal!

          5. Abdulkarim Njoka November 27th, 2012 at 3:45 pm

            Kuna tofauti kati ya mauaji na mass action.tafadhali tumia elimu yako kutofautisha kati ya hayo mawili

          6. Kwessi Pratt November 28th, 2012 at 3:06 pm

            @Abdulkarim Njoka: Ignorance bliss is indeed your genuine courtyard!

          7. Abdulkarim Njoka November 29th, 2012 at 12:57 pm

            Kwesi:Ignorance is to believe that Raila ODINGA influenced waki and Icc yet you have nothing to support that.It is to call mass action a crime ,to mix it up with murder and conotate something called murderous mass action,Igonorance indeed is to say one can be charged with the crime of that another person murdered in thier name.My friend Kwesi ,mbona wajiaibisha???????

        2. Abdulkarim Njoka November 26th, 2012 at 2:02 pm

          Gedion raia mwenzangu,you can not charge anybody with charges that xyz was killed in your name! NEVER ,NEVER NEVER!! hakuna mashtaka kama hayo kwenye sheria ya Kenya na ndio sababu licha ya kutamani kwako au kutamani kwa wengine kama wewe kumuona Raila Odinga akishtakiwa na mashtaka hayo,bado hilo halijafanyika wala halijajaribiwa.Ni kweli ,wakenya walipoteza maisha yao na sharti haki itendeke lakini sidhani itatendeka kutokana na dhana au matamanio yetu ya kumuona fulani akibebeshwa msalaba usio wake.Kumbuka ile tume ya jaji waki haikuteuliwa na Raila Odinga bali na Rais Kibaki.Kama kweli Raila alifaa kushtakiwa na PEV ,sidhani tume ya Waki ingemsaza!!!
          hata awe ni nani aliyehusika,tupige kele au tushindwe,Ni imani yangu kuwa ,hatimaye MWENYEZI MUNGU atatenda haki kwa waadhiriwa.

          1. Kwessi Pratt November 26th, 2012 at 5:04 pm

            @Abdulkarim Njoka: If you unleashed violence on Kenyans in whatever guise, you are a criminal. The fact that you were not charged in a court of law doesnt change anything. And moreso, when we know you just escaped charges because of some sort of fraud. Heard about altered KCHR report? How about this “pinupgal” in far off places? Chances are that when Raila surely drowns in 2013 elections, fresh investigations will start immediately. There is no doubt he wont escape charges. Hassan Omar Hassan would be no where near to help him. He would be nursing crippling injuries that come with heavy defeat. And if you can properly read matters, tide has been turning against lies for a while now. Thus, by the time 2013 checks in, we would be done with lords of deceit!

          2. Abdulkarim Njoka November 26th, 2012 at 5:24 pm

            Kwesi !Kwesi! kwesi!!!!!,in all your rant i havent read anything that resembles evidence-any thing that qualifies to be used as reason enough to charge Raila Odinga.All i read in ur reply is what you wish to see happening.My Dear the reason why Kenya police lose so many cases in court is coz of stances like yours.You need to have the place,the date ,the time,the nature and the witness to the crime that took place in order to succesifully prosecute it,and yeah the witness as well.Do you even know the where abouts of Raila Odinga during PEV ? wakenya walikuwa na fursa ya kutoa ushahidi mbele ya waki,brother kama unaamini unayoyasema,mbona hukutokelezea? wanasiasa wa kwenyu wakilopokwa na wewe unaimba waliyoyasema.mutabaki na kusema tu!

          3. Kwessi Pratt November 27th, 2012 at 10:59 am

            @Abdulkarim: You are making me burst in to laughter! I have Odm’s mass action minutes! They clearly say that Raila indeed did praise murderous gangs that torched a church in Eldoret. Cash was also raised towards that end. And not only that, more importantly, PM Raila NEVER EVER told his goons to stop the murders. That in itself, is too incriminating! Why didnt he raise his voice for stopage once the so called mass action turned in to a mass murder? I guess, you are holed up in slums of Kibera that stand on shades of toxic tribalism. In the circumstances, your mind is seemingly far worse than a closed shop!

          4. Abdulkarim Njoka November 27th, 2012 at 4:14 pm

            share pliz,peleka polisi.if u have it mbona hukupeleka kwa waki au ICC walipotoa hiyo fursa? better still just imagine how much that kind of evidence can fetch,HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS SIR!!! maze ungekuwa hero wa taifa hili,if u have such evidence its enough to take Raila to hague,mbona unasleki? my guess is that you are predictably not telling the truth

          5. ObieK November 28th, 2012 at 11:58 pm

            Bwana Kwessi take the tapes to the Hague or to the courts. Why are you holding onto this vital information? Stop blowing this hot air as you seek refuge from reality.

          6. Kwessi Pratt November 29th, 2012 at 10:31 am

            @Obiek: Your urge to defend your village idol is irrational. You perhaps hope that guys are saying things for sake it like you. How do you know whether I havent given my evidence to ICC already?

          7. ObieK November 29th, 2012 at 9:25 pm

            If you presented the evidence, then stay still and wait for the verdict. You never cease to amaze me with your skewed arguments!

          8. Kwessi Pratt November 30th, 2012 at 2:56 pm

            @Obiek: And you never stop astound me by going in circles like a village worm! Now after realizing that am not from Kibera slums, you want me to shut up for your benefit? Thats day dreaming!!!!

          9. Abdulkarim Njoka November 26th, 2012 at 6:09 pm

            Kwesi who escaped charges? my friend KNHCR is not a give of immunity against prosecution.we have the AG and DPP,they are free to prosecute (thats thier role ) and reason why they havent is coz hawana ushahidi wowote.Importantly,you need a complainant first before any one is arrested and charged with any offnce.tell me which complainnat went to any police station with any claim against PM ? Boss MUNGU alitupatia fahamu,tafadhali tuzitumieni!!!!

          10. Kwessi Pratt November 27th, 2012 at 10:47 am

            @Abdulkarim Njoka: You are deliberately being too narrow. Where are AG and DPP in ICC matters? There are matters that they cant touch! Perhaps, in future they will grow some teeth! Getting complainant is not a big deal. And in any case, these guys would easily go for crimes on behalf of state if they had any shred of teeth! PM was the force behind violence and once he was taken on board as senior member of government, folks had to lay off. But that doesnt mean he was or is innocent at all. There cant be any innocence whatsoever in wallowing neck-deep in the blood of innocent Kenyans to become a do-nothing PM!!!!

          11. Abdulkarim Njoka November 27th, 2012 at 4:02 pm

            read again where what i have written ,you seem to read ur own staff or may be u understand selectively

          12. Abdulkarim Njoka November 27th, 2012 at 4:08 pm

            @Kwesi Tuyafupishe,kawa una ushahidi kuwa raila alikuwa behind any crime,pliz forward same to police ,am sure Iteere na wanasiasa wakutoka eneo lako watakutukuza sana wakikita mkombozi other wise you are part of the plague ailing kenya.ripoti polisi au ufyate domo! chance yako hiyo boss ya kutungia nyimbo za sifa,dont waste it,piga ripoti …toa ushahidi ‘tenda haki kwa waathiriwa unao wafeel na kuwaskitikia’!!!!

          13. ObieK November 28th, 2012 at 11:54 pm

            Ndugugu Abdulkarim, the Kwesi guy keeps on insinuating that Raila is to powerful, and was even able to alter the findings of KNHCR. When the alterations were being done, where was the legal arm of the government and the Nations Commander-In-Chief. This guy is full of hot air, and should be ignored and not responded to at all.

          14. Abdulkarim Njoka November 29th, 2012 at 12:44 pm

            Obiek,the likes of Kwesi are the type who education has failed to enlighten,he is akeen to the type who will tell you that eating unripe mangoes will give u malaria,yet from biology it is clear malaria comes from mosquitoes!! he should tell us how ,exactly what wordings did Raila alter and the venue where that took place !! I am not wasting any more of my comments with him,he is beyond redemption ,you can not enlighten him.Let him and people from his village continue with thier myth till Jesus returns

          15. ObieK November 29th, 2012 at 9:21 pm

            Abdulkarim, and to that I say a loud Amen!!

            @Abdulkarim Njoka: In Migori, “sitaki mdoa mdoa hapa!” And this mango thing, where did you get the idea from, your uncle? Its too amuzing!!!!!

          18. Kwessi Pratt November 30th, 2012 at 11:53 am

            @Obiek: I insinuated corruption not powerfulness of your idol!!!

        3. Abdulkarim Njoka November 26th, 2012 at 5:34 pm

          Gedion ,when u are charged in court ,its when u have done something that is contrary to the penal code.That s why it is about the penal code.please attend PLEA COURT karibuni and u will understand.With plea court i mean a court where someone si charged for the first time,where there enter plea,either wanakubali mashtaka au wanakata.Then listen to how charges are read.

      2. Kwessi Pratt November 30th, 2012 at 11:49 am

    Ngunjiri Wambugu is a a gun for hire for some people we know. His, is not a commentary or fair comment but he is acting like a shamba boy trying to please his masters. How sameful?

  4. joe joe November 19th, 2012 at 8:07 am

    You can look at the world in a skewed manner depending on where you stand or whose mouth piece you are. This writer obviously tries (too hard) to change historical facts and the stain of the ODM in the 2007/08 elections. And therein lies the problem for Kenya. So if ODM played no part in the 2008 violence it was all PNU’s fault right, Wambugu? His articles, and there are several in this forum, lack objectivity and a predictable writer becomes a bore after a while.

  5. carsema November 19th, 2012 at 10:48 am

    Each time Ngunjiri blogs, his opinion and repute sinks two miles deeper into ignominy

    1. Abdulkarim Njoka November 27th, 2012 at 3:49 pm

      Thats your opinion

  6. willy November 19th, 2012 at 11:34 am

    I have always asked myself, on whose behalf does this man do his blogs? while other bloggers on this site write objective articles, he just dwell on bullshit…i have never heard UK says that all people from Mt.Kenya must join TNA

    1. Abdulkarim Njoka November 27th, 2012 at 3:21 pm

      @willy: He said it actually, he is in hurry to be made crown prince! Disaster is always in the offing in such selfish ventures.

  7. Kwessi Pratt November 19th, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    First and foremost, I totally disagree with you on the outcome of 2007 analysis. Its factually wrong on sense that PM Raila had more powerful propaganda machine than his opponents. That machine is the one that largely helped to create 2007 PEV. Twisted lies and enormous amount of anti–Kikuyu pronouncements by Odm leadership raised political temperatures to all time high. That was before and after announcement of elections. Obviously, you cant claim that ballot papers were being marked at AP’s training college in Embakasi and expect that to provide peace. You cant help have AP’s get murdered in Nyakach and expect that to be road to be peace. You cant scream that if Kenyans wanted to get “Mungiki out of state house, they should vote for you and expect peace from the same same people you incited. There were generally a huge violent climate that was shaped by Odm leadership in run up to 2007. Even Mzee Kivuitu’s pronouncement to the effect he didnt know whether president Kibaki won freely and fairly since he was not in field, was twisted to reinforce Odm’s false position. Media was definitely used to hold on a fake line.

    As concerns brother Hon. Uhuru, there is growing evidence that he is overrating himself. Infact, deception and self-deception seem to have taken centre stage in his operations. After using his ICC debacle to build one-day-fun political career, he falsely started to treat himself as home and dry. He CANT be campared to PM Raila in run up to 2007 elections. The only comparison could be selfishness. Why Uhuru thinks he can sideline all senior politicians and lead the queque is hard to discern. Whats even more shocking is the fact that, apart from ICC issue, he doesnt seem to have anything else in his sleeves. Of course, apart from being misled by fake opinion polls, Uhuru is nothing beyond tribalism. He has never ever offered anything to the country. But somehow, he feels that self sense of entitlement.

    Brother Uhuru has no idea the same ICC he used to build a career will be used to cut him to size. Furthermore, his much hyped innocence is a matter of debate. And since the charges were confirmed that perceived innocence evaporated. Infact, whats left is for him to prove that innocence. Events on the ground after the dust settled, suggest that those most serious accusations have over 90% chance of sticking. His main witness actually confirmed the Mungiki aspect in the matter. Uhuru on his part, has unwittingly gone a long way to reinforce Mungiki presence in the case. One would wonder where his supposed seniority is derived from. Is it because he supposedly used Mungiki, as story goes, to “stop Kikuyus from being finished?” He even seems dictate to others on how to go about things! Where did he get that power from? My guess is as good as yours! Pride comes just before fall. Mark my words, Uhuru is not going to fly!

  8. Mutunga November 19th, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    I wholly agree with the writer. Please be real and place blame where it belongs. Many Kenyans who followed the events of 2007 know how the violence started. Many Kenyans of goodwill implored the Electoral Commission not to announce results unless they were certain because of the buiding tensions at the time. The commission ignored the advice and the result was the spontaneous violence. The Kriegler report confirmed this position when they said that it was not possible to establish who won the election. Raila was among the first politicians to call for a stop on the violence and I vividly remember his wife asking people in Kisumu to stop the violence even before it had reached Naivasha. The problem with this country has been ethnic bigotry where people from one tribe will always try to see crimes committed by other tribes even when the crimes are imagined. This coming from a nation that claims to be christian is a huge shame. Unltil and unless we, as a whole people, agree to be true to each other we will not know peace. Let us be true to one another and the truth shall set us free. When we start seeing ourselves as Kenyans, first, before seeing the tribe we will be closer to realising national peace.

    1. Kwessi Pratt November 23rd, 2012 at 3:26 pm

      @Mutunga: Awfully sorry, I missed this one of yours. First, either you dont know what you are saying, or simply picked few bits from here and there. For your information, Odm folks wanted only results that would have declared them the winners or none at all. They had literally taken Kivuitu’s team hostage and thats why GSU were ordered to clear the area. The tension was never caused by results. It was caused by crazy defiance that saw guys want to over run Mzee Hon. Kivuitu in full glare of television cameras. If a senior politician is shown on TV screaming theft, given the charged tribal campaigns, what would you expect from our guys down there? Remember APs were killed in Nyakach at instigation of those who knew they were headed for the chop. Remember few days before that, purported marking of ballot papers at APs training college in Embakasi was aired by one of major TV stations that favored Odm. Were these mere coindences? And Odm guys were already threatening stern consequences (read violence!) if they lost! Kriegler commission only compilied that was told it by largely Odm supporters. PNU guys had very little interest in it. After all, apart from loss of business and property, they had no shred of quarel with the results!!!!

      1. Abdulkarim Njoka November 27th, 2012 at 3:20 pm

        tutajie jina moja tu la mtu aliye mchukua kivuitu mateka.Mbona kivuiutu hakuripoti polisi kuwa katekwa nyara,na ili kivuitu atekwe nyara,kwani hapo ndani walikuwa ni watu wa odm peke yao.kila aliye ingia KICC alipewa kibali maalum,wataka kudaisha kuwa watu wa PNU walinyimwa hivyo vibali ? Na ukweli wa mambo ni kuwa hapo ndani kulikuwa na polisi ,walikuwa hawayaoni hayo? Na hiyo story ya kriegler kuwa watu wa PNU hawakufika mbele ya kriegler,je waweza kutupatia ushahidi wa hayo ama bad ni hawaa na uzushi wako tena! Boss hata uruke huwezi kutudanganya,tuliyaona yote!!!!!

        1. Kwessi Pratt November 28th, 2012 at 10:39 am

          @Abdulkarim Njoka: Too much swahili, forgotten this is an english thread? There is swahili version else where!

          1. ObieK November 29th, 2012 at 9:18 pm

            There is nothing like too much Swahili. This is the National language, and if you are a true Kenyan as you purport to be then wacha kulalamika. Acha Ndugu Abdulkarim ajivunie kuwa mkenya.

          2. Kwessi Pratt November 30th, 2012 at 11:41 am

            @Obiek: Even Mzee Odinga senior didnt know any shred of swahili and was VP! Did that make him non-Kenyan? I have also noticed that all Mps from ujang’o speak english while addressing rallies even in their villages! Do I need to go to those inner cities to become something?

          3. Mwaisaka Wangai December 10th, 2012 at 2:59 pm

            Ever patronising language! Swahili IS our national language, what’s wrong with speaking it. Ama wewe hujui mwacha mila ni mtumwa? Tafadhali fanya heshima ili uweze kuheshimika!

  9. Mahugu Joel Julius Kinyanjui November 19th, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    Uhuru said nothing like that. we respect jurnalists who first have the facts right. Not extending a created story for sensionalismic purposes….

    I thot you win with majority, not “majority majority” of votes. Now you justify violence based on 200,000 Votes Quote you “On the other hand in 2007 Kenya had to form a commission to
    investigate the 2007 general election results. This Commission, headed
    by Justice Johann Kriegler, stated that it was not clear whether Kibaki
    had actually gotten the 4,584,721 votes that had been used to declare
    him the winner over Raila Odinga, who accumulated 4,352,993 votes. This
    difference of around two hundred thousand votes was enough to cause
    tension even in a free and fair election.” clearly you dont believe in a fair win of numbers…

    You and Moses Kuria need to simply get a life. Your obsessions with
    Uhuru and Raila respectively can only be termed as pure shenanigans.
    When all articles you have done in a year revolve around one person and
    nothing more you lack objectivity and simply put it becomes a personal

    In the past decade, Kenyans have allowed themselves to be driven by pity political mischiefs that cant bemefit them. Its about time we broke off from this crippling situation. We need to leaders not in form tribal numbers, but what they can really do or have done. Of course, those who have fallen off with PM Raila have seen their characters being assassinated for no apparent reason. People like VP Kalonzo Musyoka has been ridicule and assaulted not because he is a bad man, but because he presents the best option for the country. Kalonzo is our best bet. Needless to say, all ideas that working today came from him. Raila and all other candidates vying presidency know that Kalonzo is the best man. He has unassailable integrity, he is not corrupt, he doesnt steal and is also an international personality. He is a cool guy who has similarities of former president Bill Clinton of USA. Both came from very poor grounds. The worked hard enough to become lawyers. Clinton came from one of the poorest states in US. So, instead of wasting time on candidates who cant fly, why cant we give VP Kalonzo our votes to make the country fly? Of course, Mr. Wambugu has been parroting for his candidate that has failed to fly. Infact, even with unchallenged half bread, the candidate has remained as stagnant as water in a drum!
    We need a leader who can inspire and lead the country in the front. And leading a nation has challenges that cant confronted greenhorns. Late presiednt Kenyatta was largely occupied with amassing property and literally ignored most parts of the country. Retired president Moi followed Kenyatta’s Nyayo to the letter or even exceeded them. President Kibaki has clearly confined himself to his profession. Thats why anything in his field is wonderfully taking off. Beyond that, very little can be said about him. We also have to note that the three presidents had very limited exposure in government. Jomo Kenyatta never anythin about government before he became president. Moi too, mostly stayed in ministry of home affairs before he became president. So is president Kibaki. He got stuck in finance for most of his political life. Apart from few months as an assistant minister for commerce, his exposure was largely in fanance ministry.
    Now when you look at our many presidential candisates, given the above record, you must be sure where they are likely to take us. Brothers Ruto, Uhuru, Kenneth and PM Raila are too new in the game. They hardly know how to run a state. Perhaps, prof. Kiyapi is even better than them in terms of government exposure. Brothers Hon. Mudavadi and VP Kalonzo are the only people have held several ministries that have given them real exposure. Here again, VP Kalonzo is a clear leader. We should therefore cut the bitterness and see the wider picture. But if our interest is not to take off as a country, perhaps the pathetic stories that cant makes us should carry the day!!!!

      Heading a ministry is one issue, succeeding at it is a different ball game

    Journalistic hubris also a dangerous thing. why, why does The Star publish through columnist every other week. Nevertheless writer is fully entitled to their opinion and with full rights to be published. The quality of The Star is immensely eroded each time they publish the writer.
