  I am always so impressed by the Kenyans that brave the sun to go out and sit for hours through some of these speeches. Out of respect, our leaders should always ensure they send them home with something of value in terms of words. Moi never disappointed with his public holiday speeches. As for Kibaki, I know him more for the name calling. Hope yesterday was different.

  Seriously, where is the pomp and colour? Or is all these in the spirit of the coalition government? These reporting is way below your standards and if someone was doing it just so as to look good and supportive, then understand its showdy work. Kenyans are having multiple problems ranging from bad governance to hunger, thus insinuation that they were celebrating is to miss the whole point.

  So where is the pomp and colour? Your reporting is pathetic. why do you always have to draw unecessary and cheap contrasts whenever Raila and Kibaki appear together for a function. Tell us what both told Kenyans, we are not interested in who come unoticed or who got the biggest share of applause. Stop cheap politics.

  On a side note, if somebody ever told me that the “Totalman” would be sitting in the VIP dais during a National day..7 years post-Moi era, I would have bet my life savings that it would never happen…Wow! how wrong i was! As they say..the more politics change, the more political they become….”Totalman” is truly the real man.
