On the People’s Kamkunji that is The OneMic Show:
The Panel reviewed Kenyan Politics after NASA’s call to Boycott the rerun of Presidential Elections. Polls were suspended indefinitely by IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati in all Luo Nyanza Counties, and violence rocked some Nairobi’s slum areas. Did the Elections meet expectations set by the Supreme Court?
Prior to Low Voter Turn-out experienced on Election Day, NASA leader announced the transformation of the Coalition to a Resistance Movement while Deputy CJ’s body-guard was shot in a separate incident leading to a lack of Quorum in the Supreme Court. What direction is Kenya heading from here?
The Panel also discussed the role of EU/American Diplomats and Election Monitors following the Joint announcement made by Ambassador Godec earlier in the week urging Kenyans to vote. The panel analyzed if their role had become diminished following the bangled Aug 8th Election that they prematurely endorsed.
