It appears that after sorting out the hundreds of different MOU’s that Raila signed with different factions of Kenya ODM has have finally located the authentic copy Raila signed with Namlef / Kenyan Muslims.
My sarcasm aside there are a few questions to ponder on this MOU saga.
Firstly, if an authentic copy actually did exist from the get go; why did it take Raila and Namlef weeks to make it public?
And wouldn’t any leading presidential candidate want to dispel untruths about him by immediately countering political slander with honest truth, whenever it exists?
My conclusion is that this is mere politicking on both PNU and ODM. It would not surprise me that neither of the MOU published to the public is authentic.
PNU and its supporters probably learnt of the MOU and published a tweaked version of it to fit their anti Raila sentiments.
In return Raila, Namlef and their supporters reviewed and adjusted the original MOU to avoid backlash from the public and other religions in Kenya.
Whatever the case, perception is more important in politics than truth. And we shouldn’t expect Kenya’s political strategist not to stay awake trying to figure out how to manipulate and defame the image of their key opponents.
Unfortunately for our sake the truth remains hidden somewhere in their campaign propaganda.
