NOTE TO JOSHUA: HOW TO SURVIVE THE GEMA PRESIDENTIAL BARRICADE

I have to admit, I really don't know how you can overcome this chokehold the GEMA communities have on the presidency. My title is however not misleading. I can only give you survival tips and advice that will help you face it, not overcome it. RAO came unprepared. As you are closer to him than I am, you would be a better witness to the devastation. Don't make the same mistakes. Here goes;

1) Understand your opponent - For starters, WSR is not your opponent. Neither is any other politician from Mt Kenya. Your opponent is a situation. A situation that results in a massive GEMA base coming out to vote like their lives depended on it. The truth, this base believes that their lives do depend on it. They view every contender with deep suspicion. You included. This base has been traumatized by brutal colonialists, a feverishly insecure Moi regime and the 2008 PEV. They have good reason to be suspicious. That suspicion, is your opponent.

2) Suspicious Minds

We're caught in a trap, I can't walk out.
Because I love you too much baby...
- Elvis Presley, Suspicious Minds

Elvis could have told you that a suspicious mind won't acquiesce with you. You need to placate them first. These suspicions have led to a voting pattern that is now predictable. In 2002, the Kikuyu vote splintered as one side voted for a change and another for continuity. Come 2007, RAO consolidated that vote with the 41 vs 1 venom. And unfortunately for you, you applauded it. You need to look for a way to make them forget that. To some extent, WSR has.

3) Slaying a Giant 101: Lull him to sleep first - GEMA is a 7.2M voting behemoth. In this 2017 election, they didn't feel scared enough to turn out in large numbers making Uhuruto have to work extra hard to win additional votes. Why didn't they repeat the previous turnout? Because RAO's effect as a bogeyman is increasingly becoming muted. He is more of a caricature than a bogeyman. But one Kalonzo Musyoka did us a solid by belatedly reminding us that the 41 vs 1 narrative is still alive. As a Jubilee supporter, please pass my appreciation for his unsolicited assistance. The lesson, steer far away from the 41 vs 1 narrative! Actually, I will advise you to run for the hills whenever you hear it. Do not under any circumstances be associated with it. That way, you may , just may have lulled the giant to sleep.

I need not tell you that your past sins will come to haunt you. You did applaud the 41 vs 1. Let's see you wiggle out of this one.

Baba had an upper hand in these thing till watermelon uttered those words. Infact I know a dozen who were undecided who to vote for but walikataa kulala chini kama bahasha courtesy of ka melon waliamka usiku kupiga kura.

If Raila retires from politics trust me Ruto will be the new "Raila". Whoever Ruto's opponent will be in 2022 he/she will use the 41 vs 1 card against him. We already saw Kabogo trying to use this tactic against WSR but was stopped on his tracks for reasons only known to jubilee insiders but trust me this can of worms will be opened in 2022 if Raila quits politics.

It's a silver lining of 2007, for the battle of the GEMA vs KALENJIN that after the ICC debacle the Gema in a form totally adopted William for he became a victim in a way same as to the Gema nation, and is a child they are not at any cost willing to lose. For 2022 William will win if Rao trys the presidency again.

You're right. RAO had this thing until the very last campaign stop when Kalonzo uttered those unfortunate words. The goodwill Kalonzo had from Mt Kenya guys is done for. He should ask Kabogo. Mt Kenya wakikukataa it's over for you milele na milele.

na Uhuruto wasijaribu kuja kutuambia ati they will work with him in future, he played his card when he uttered those words

I heard so many variations of that statement ya kalonzo. I never heard about the envelop. Ile niliskia ni Mt kenya will lie low.
Huko mashambani all I was hearing was, kalonzo alisema tutalala chini kama bahasha. Mwingine alisema ati kalonzo alisema ati tutatoshea kwa bahasha.
Despite how the message was distorted clearly that was the catalyst we were all waiting for.

NOT true. Central turnout was Just 80% like all other counties.
Boss I voted in shaggs and the slogan was "Kumíra Kumíra kanene na kanini"
Yaani 8/8 ni kutokea kutokea mkubwa na mdogo.
The slogan was made up and spread after ka melon uttered those words 3 days to elections.
