Mudavadi, the de facto leader of UDF, convened a press conference where he revealed that his TNA counterpart, Uhuru Kenyatta, had agreed to shelve his presidential ambitions in his favour, but failed to honour his word.
But in a tough rejoinder, Uhuru claimed he was "coerced by evil forces" into that move, which has since been denounced by his party’s delegates.
President Mwai Kibaki: Although State House has denied that it is not behind the Jubilee Coalition melee, credible sources indicate the president is deeply involved in the search for his. It is alleged that Kibaki is using his close relatives to force Uhuru to step down in favour of Mudavadi
Prof. Nick Wanjohi: A former chancellor of University of Nairobi and Personal Secretary of President Kibaki, Wanjohi is the man behind Mudavadi’s Presidential bid. He told Uhuru point-blank that Kenya cannot afford his presidency because we will be locked out of the international community.
Brigadier Michael Gichangi: This former Air Force Commander is currently the director of National Security Intelligence Service (NSIS). He is a close confidant of Prof. Nick Wanjohi and the two, according to Miguna Miguna's book Peeling Back The Mask: A Quest for Justice in Kenya, are powerful underground government operatives whose effects are enormous. The two are perceived to be working on a Mudavadi candidature hence he is often referred to as their “project”.
At this point, the name of the former President Daniel Arap Moi comes up but to what extent, we are yet to verify.
A fortnight ago, Uhuru’s foot soldier Rachael Shebesh revealed that some powerful forces in State House are pressuring Uhuru Kenyatta to shelve his Presidential ambitions in favour of Musalia Mudavadi.
State House has denied being involved, but seeing the bungling and confusion with which events are unfolding, it's not rocket science to see Kibaki's hand in all this.

This is a letter to the "House of Mumbi", those of the GEMA community. I address you as the son of a’"Mau Mau hustler".
I have three thoughts from my late father. When I was a boy, he gave me stories about a guy called Gikuyu and his girl, Mumbi. The two founded the tribe. They had nine girls or something like that. No son. And they lived happily thereafter. But I had questions about this romantic relationship. As a boy, I asked my father, who married the nine girls?
He kept quiet. Then I asked him: if they got children, who was their father? How was the tribe created? He got violent. In fact, he gave me a beating for asking questions "without legs". But then later, I figured that maybe he had no answer. Or maybe there was a hidden secret in the tribe. I became curious. And so I began my boyish inquiry. If the only man in the tribe was Gikuyu, did he have children with his daughters?
This thought was appalling beyond. My father would have killed me for thinking so. I had to settle on a more acceptable deduction. That is, if Gikuyu had nine daughters, their children must have been fathered by other tribes i.e. the Maasai, Ndorobo, Luo, Luhya, and all. But even this my father would not accept. I had to rest my case.
Allow me now to interpret my boyish deductions. To reproduce your GEMA tribe, you have only two choices. One, you can choose the path of incest. This is the path of in-breeding and sin. Although shameful, it is the path you chose in 2007. And the results are obvious: political incest can only produce mongoloids.
This is what you have in the coalition government. The second choice is the one taken by Gikuyu and Mumbi. They sent their daughters to breed with others. This is how the tribe survived. Your survival, therefore, depends on others: the Maasai, Ndorobo, Luo, Luhya and all. And, on this, the alternatives are zero.
My father’s second thought was given when I got circumcised. But not explicitly. He had a telephone at home, what you would call an antique today. As a way of controlling it, he locked it using a padlock from the government. He always carried the key. One day, he came home for lunch. He needed to call his boss badly.
Unfortunately, he had forgotten the key at the office. The man was desparate. And from the "kindness" of our hearts, my brother Peter and I decided to help. We tapped the phone for him. He watched in amazement as we handed the receiver for him to talk to the boss. When he finished his call, he stared at us with a "kali sana" face.
But instead of punishing us, he decided to remove the padlock for good. He knew we were smarter now. After all, we had just gotten circumcised. And this is how he gave us the second thought about the tribe. Explaining his frustration with the phone call, he told us that the Gikuyu had two categories of people: the "ahoi" and the "athomi". The "ahoi" were the poor.
In rural areas they walk around without shoes, their feet all cracked up. And in urban areas, they are the "shamba boys"‘, the drivers and the cooks. As a driver, he told us he was in the urban group of "ahoi". The "athomi" were the educated and propertied. They were also arrogant, insensitive and ruthless.
This is why he needed to make the phone call; he had to drop their children somewhere. His point? The "athomi" did not think much of the "ahoi". They saw them as slaves of sorts. And this is how you must understand President Kibaki. Most of you follow him blindly. In fact, because you are in the "ahoi" group, he expects you to.
Unfortunately, and together with the "athomi", he dragged you into a state of civil war. They used you. And since the "athomi" are untouchable, you bore the brunt of the violence. Where are your IDPs today? In the meantime, you think the presidency is yours. Zero. It belongs to the "athomi".
Allow me to describe your position as "ahoi" using a story. A man set out on a journey through a thick forest full of thorns and rocks. Suddenly, an elephant appeared and gave him chase. He took off and went to hide in a well. To his horror, he saw a huge snake at the bottom of the well.
He had to cling to a thorny creeper that was growing around it. Looking up, he saw two mice chewing the creeper he was hanging on. But just as he was contemplating his next move, he saw a beehive next to his mouth. Occasional drops of honey were trickling from the hive. And this man tasted the honey. He got confused.
Although a kind man offered to help him out of his trouble, he refused. He wanted to be excused until he had enjoyed himself to the full. Not clever. Good people, you are behaving like this man. You have seen a beehive dripping with honey.
And although you are hanging on a thin creeper between an angry elephant and a snake, you don’t care. You want to enjoy the honey, the presidency. Unfortunately, the creeper will snap and you will have to deal with the snake at the bottom of the well. On this, the choice is yours.
The third thought regards Mungiki. When my father joined Mau Mau, they called it a Mungiki-type movement. Yet it was a group of restless young people whose "wazees" had lost direction. I want to put it to you that you have no leadership. The "wazees" in your ranks have reached intellectual menopause. And in this state, they have exhibited unnecessary arrogance towards others.
As a shareholder in your tribe, I submit that you need new leadership. A leadership that will cause you to climb down in the interest of the country. One that is not beholden to the "athomi" and one that will respect the other communities.

Nairobi, 27 August 2012
For avoidance of doubt, we wish to communicate to members of the public generally as follows, regarding Mr. Miguna Miguna and his self-inflicted tribulations, as he allegedly tries to popularize his book in different parts of the country.
Mr. Miguna is the man who has recently published unfriendly propaganda against the Prime Minister Raila Odinga. The propaganda is packaged in the guise of a book that claims to seek to make Kenya a just society. This package is however nothing but a bundle of offensive and defamatory invective against the Prime Minister. Mr. Miguna has himself stated publicly that the objective of this polemic is to derail the Hon. Prime Minister’s Presidential campaign.
We want to state categorically that the PM’s supporters have been strongly advised, via public communication from the ODM Secretariat, to respect Mr. Miguna’s rights and freedom, even if he abuses that freedom to defame the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister occupies very key public office. He recognizes that citizens are entitled to genuinely interrogate his performance. But he also recognizes that there are those who will abuse freedom of expression to insult him and to hurt his good character. Such is the price of freedom and high office. The Prime Minister does not have to answer to everyone who makes wild claims against him. If he were to do this, he would spend all his active time answering back to wild claims, for there is no shortage of this from his detractors. That is why he has kept off the Miguna allegations.
In the event that anyone considers that there is substance in the wild allegations against the PM, there exist lawful and decent avenues of seeking redress, in public interest. However, since there is no substance, nobody is exploring use of such avenues. The PM and this Secretariat have therefore been content to allow Mr. Miguna to enjoy his freedom of expression, unfettered. We trust that genuine supporters of the PM and ODM have heeded this advice and are keeping away from Miguna and his frolics.
There have been pleas from strange quarters on “the need for the PM to speak out” against the apparent harassment that Mr. Miguna is coming up against out there. Mr. Miguna, his sponsors and those who seem to be harassing him are playing to a choreographed and orchestrated script. As has been stated by the ODM Secretariat, this is a sinister, offensive and lowly ploy. It is a wicked stratagem that seeks to depict the Prime Minister as someone who does not respect other people’s rights and freedoms. It is clear that it is sponsors of this ploy who are shouting loudest about this matter. It is well within their capacity to end the orchestrated “harassment” against their man.
For the Raila Odinga for President Secretariat

You know the ICC recently convicted Congolese warlord Thomas Lubanga. You saw how the Special Court for Sierra Leone dealt with Liberian warlord Charles Taylor. We only want to know the truth – are you, or aren’t you – guilty as charged?

If you want to know the real enemies of Kenya’s reforms,
look no further than the ever-smiling (but conniving and devious) Eugene
Wamalwa. Ever since his public extolling by the President’s son (Jimmy Kibaki)
and close association with Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto, this Mt. Kenya
Mafia poodle has been exposed as one of the greatest enemies of Kenya’s
reforms; in particular the new Constitution. The tricksters, led by
propagandist Tony Gachoka, have been promoting this Uhuru Kenyatta side-kick as
a viable future leader of Kenya.

Migunee: The dumper
Migunwad: To be the victim of a spilling of secrets of your love affair.
Migunaring: The act of speaking ill of previous love affairs.
Migunarriffic: The excitement accompanying the temporary attention that follows the spilling.
Migunaphobia: The fear of what would be said about you by previous lovers.
Migunamania: To extremely love the things being said by a jilted lover.
Migunaholic: Those engrossed and addicted to stories of previous love affairs.
Migunometre: An instrument used to measure the level of lies from jilted lovers.
Migunology: The study of the art of Migunaring.
Miguniologist: One who specializes in the study of the art of Migunaring.
Example of usage in a sentence: Miguna was dumped by Migunee and went around migunaring about the migunee.Some thought it was so migunarriffic while migunaphobics condemned the act. However, there are others who are so migunamanic to the extent of being migunaholics.We need the migunologist to use the migunometre to find the level of lies in the verbosity.
