A politician is an arse upon which everyone has sat except a man.
E. E. Cummings
Who would have guessed it: special interest groups such as minorities, the disabled, the marginalised, etc, are yet again the recepients of a royal rimming from the politicians we intend to put into office this coming March. The list of persons to be nominated to parliament has been released and, as expected, it is just another instance of the plutocracy flipping us the bird and waving a middle finger right next to our faces… It’s not like there’s anything we can do about it anyway, other than elect the same people to high office of course.
Some of the most disgusting nominations, those informed by the most base of reasons -that of self-preservation at the expense of self-respect, include:
1. Mudavadi and Kioni, the UDF presidential candidate and his running mate, for National Assembly.
2. Beth Mugo, who retired on health grounds and is aunt to Uhuru Kenyatta, for Senate via TNA
3. Ongoro and Margaret Wanjiru, one who stepped down for the other and who is herself on the ballot for Nairobi Senate, for senate via ODM
4. Henry Kosgey and Oburu Odinga, one who is running, another who is a brother to Raila, for National assembly via ODM
