With the election week ending and the President-elect having been announced yesterday. Many are happy and the grieving ones are seriously in grief.
The race attracted four candidates but former Deputy President William Ruto emerged the winner of the race defeating the three. Among the losers, The most painful loss is in the camp of Raila Odinga. Many die-hard supporters of the Azimio flag bearer who refer to him as Baba have totally lost hope and given up. Some even confessed on social media that they will never be part of any election in the country.
One of the bitter losers is a veteran politician and ODM flag bearer in the Nandi gubernatorial race in 2017 Serenoi Arap Cheison.
Cheison blamed the Azimio leadership for failing to come up with better strategies to win the elections. He blamed the Azimio side for relying on the system and Uhuru Kenyatta to hand them the Presidency.
“We bought a lazy yarn that somebody will make Baba the President. We had no system, no money.” He went ahead to blame President Uhuru Kenyatta for their loss. ” Uhuru played safe to protect his family business from destruction in case Baba lost! I’m done with ODM and politics of hope.”
He said that Azimio ran a shambolic campaign without a better plan unlike Kenya Kwanza who he said were organised and out to win. “KK outfoxed us on messaging, blogging, mobilising, organising. We relied on Baba the magnet. They built a data-driven- campaign, we relied on voodoo science.”
