  2. Phil says:

    Agent4Change, I am telling you that I have been waiting for this moment since the infamous referendum. I cannot just explain to you how much joy it feels to vote out a government that betrayed our rainbow dream. To answer your question; I was ready in 2005 – and boy it has been a long wait! The time for reckoning is here and what a relief.

    Blogging from Kibera and Voting in Langata (where else?)

  3. pabokenya says:

    am very are ready to cast my vote in kasarani for a three peice suit for one full orange and the profets of dooom who are even contemplating a run off.let all the odmers wake and put our votes.
    we dont even want any spoilt votes, let them panick in central as they try to rig and spoil their votes, we have to look in that baloot box, check only one orange and put a mark inside that box.

  4. edduking says:

    I’ll show the world that ODM is the party to beat in Lower Kabete primary, Westlands. Three piece it is and very much ready for change.

  5. Stephen Were says:

    To all ODMers

    Please put aside your ID and voter’s card today, to make sure you dont ‘look for them’ on the D-Day, avoid moving around with them.

  6. Stephen Were says:

    I am told one of presidential aspirants (Nazlin?) has a hammer (nyundo) for her symbol. If this is true the Pentagon/ Secretariat must use the remaining days to clarify to our supporters that this is NOT our symbol.

  7. washingtone says:

    I am too ready to wait. Just wondering whether all ODM ers are. Hope that on that day after I vote early at 7.00am, Iwill be waiting, watching every result posted and anticipating the good news.

  8. tnk says:

    a lot of information has been shared on rigging and counter moves.

    Raila was an observer at the Nigeria polls which were heavily rigged

    herebelow is what has transpired in Nigeria at various times

    We in Kenya have a mature and disciplined armed forces and police force. We however have heard stories to the effect that karume and michuki may abuse their offices by using our honorable service men and women.

    First my appeal is to the service men and women, i don’t think karume and possibly michuki has ever had the pride to put on a uniform and crown so I hope they will not allow their world reknown repuration to be soiled in this way. Look at how michuki has sidelined and humliated maj hussein (police commissioner) and not even had the courtesy to follow the chain of command (prefers to use his tribesmen). ODM secretariat should find a way in which the top levels of the police force and armed forces assure kenyans that they will not be used as hired thugs and goons.

    second i believe any violence will be carried out by thugs posing as members of the armed or police force. To do this they will have to enter false records in their logistic movement to use trucks, uniforms or other resources. ODM pentagon must talk to the highest authorities in these institutions as far as is legally possible by civlians so that they conduct inventory to ensure none of their resources are misused.

    third in the event that goons masquerading as police or army personnel are deployed to mar the elections program through violence or hijacking of balot boxes and the likes on the eve of or on election day, then there must be a hotline established to stop any such activity.

    Like Kivuitu said even a delay in delivery will enable the incumbent to be first through the posts.

    This is not meant to cause any anxiety but should enable us prepare in teh vent that such dirty tactics are used. I however have every faith in teh dignity and integrity of our forces, having seen them so well respected in peace missions abroad.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    Yes! I am ready for change! So is my entire household! My lawyer friend has of late developed a certain cosy relationship with me that was not there before! Oooops, I think this man is smelling something that’s in the offing. Maybe he wants to share my ugali on the 28th at Kosewe. He has made a last minute u-turn to vote for ODM. May God’s name be glorified.

  10. Nickie says:

    Verry very ready for the change i smell the victory, Lets hang on there and be steadfst ODM has delivered victory, its just amatter of days before Raila Gets there beleive you me one foot is inside statehouse, Pliz encourage others to vote. Me am determoned to be the first person in the whole country to vote for Raila Amollo Odinga as in at 5:30am i will be at the polling station and of course its three piece suit.

  11. sam says:

    Sam voting in Nakuru town am ready to vote the peoples president.

    Am ready also to protect rigging since the peoples president has devolved power to the people.The people have power to stop rigging.

    Imagine after 2002,the people thought they had the power and started arresting corrupt policemen taking bribes from matatus only to realize that they were not empowered, in other words they were cheated.

  12. Omuto says:

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeees!!!!!!!
    Chungwa Moja ni Maisha Bora.

  13. Tito Were says:

    Hi ODMers, just worried about rumours of some panuas buying votes in Langata for as much as 10k, can someone near there put his\her ears on the ground and let the secretariat investigate?

  14. Omuto says:

    AGENTA4CHANGE,
    REMEMBER MY FEARS ON https://raila2007.wordpress.com/latest-from-the-ground/#comment-3230?
    COMPARE THAT WITH TITO WERE’S COMMENTS ABOVE. ITS VERY EASY TO COUNTER THIS. JUST LAY A TRAP. SEND A DESPERATE LOOKING ELECTION CARD SELLER TO THE BUYER AND POSITION YOURSELF IN A STRATEGIC POSITION TO GET JUST ONE OF THE BUYERS. THE REST WILL BE HISTORY. NO RESPONSE FROM YOU, AGENT4CHANGE, ON WHETHER OUR LATEST COMMENTS ARE MAKING ANY IMPACT IN THE SECRETATIAT.

  15. Auki Ollows says:

    People,

    As we begin Countdown, I am reminded of Muhammad Ali, three times world boxing heavyweight champion’s quote:
    “The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses — behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights”

    If it was Raila speaking, it would probably be:
    “The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses — behind the lines, in the houses, at the offices, on the blogs, and out there on the road, long before I deliver the keynote speeches at the rallies”

    In other words, there is alot more work must go on away from the rallies. And that is we all come in – houses, offices, blogs, streets, anywhere, everywhere… Singing the ODM message, before the rallies and even the voting day…

    Let’s all give the final push!

    CHUUNGWA MOJA NI MAISHA BORA!

  16. Moses says:

    Yeah! Of course I’m and even more ready to send Beth Mugo packing, I’m ready for the change tht is to come..Go K.J., Go Raila…

  17. Sue says:

    Very ready for 27th December a day that will decide the direction Kenya will take from 28th December. Stories of votes buying and rigging will not stop Change if the time has come. Read Psalms 35.

  18. faddie says:

    “NOTHING WHATSOEVER,NOT EVEN AN ARMY CAN STOP AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME”
    i hear karume is threatening that kibaki has to win at all costs.he wants to intimidate people by believing he has the powers to unleash the military on innocent kenyans.can somebody tell him that it is only the president who has the power to declare martial law?in case he doesn’t know,kibaki is just the custodian of the powers not the owner coz those powers belong to us.
    if karume’s threats are real then PNU is bent on rigging full scale.so people marshall all the votes you can get.

  19. cratetuner says:

    i ready to take lucy and kibaki to othaya and raila 2 state house we are going as a family to vote all odm supporters make sure the voting becomes a family thing where all the family members votes for raila

  20. faddie says:

    these candidates we are complaining about conned people of the nominations knowing very well that they were not serious about being elected becoz that is what they were sent by PNU to do.this would ensure that:
    1.people don’t vote for raila in those constituencies
    2.that ODM doesn’t get majority of the legislators
    3.that WHEN raila wins,he won’t have enough numbers to help him in running the government.this way it would be easy to frustrate his efforts to govern and bring the much needed change.
    i think this is basically sabotage.otherwise,can the secretariat investigate what is going on and let us know?

  21. Maru Kapkatet says:

    I am still worried that voters may be confused by the many parties and candidates on the ballot papers and end up casting their vote for the wrong candidate.

    Between now and polling day, ODM must educate voters about how to vote correctly and how to make sure that their vote goes to the right candidate. It would have been much easier had the three-piece voting strategy been followed everywhere.

    There is the confusing ODM-K. Voters should be very clear on the difference between ODM and ODM-K.

    At the end of the day, voters should be called upon to vote Raila president. He is the main thing. He needs many ODM MPs. Tell voters how important this is.

    Will the Pentagon have final rallies in Mombasa and Uhuru Park? What about Kapkatet? Will Raila visit the site of Buret Technical College at Tiiritap Moitaa near Sotik, where Kibaki went and had a very good nap?

  22. faith says:

    I INTEND TO BE AMONG THE FIRST PEOPLE IN JUJA TO VOTE RAILA IAM READY.

  23. benjamin says:

    I will vote ODM three piece iam ready

  24. Njuguna Kariuki says:

    Just from the ground.

    1. There is a widespread fear and panic among Mt. Kenya people. This is from Kibaki chief campaigners on the ground. I eaves dropped a strategy meeting.

    2. There is a plan to use Mungiki to cause mayhem in Kibera in a few days time. They are already armed.

    3. Pastors and chiefs will be used to mobilize voter turnout.

    4. People have volunteered vehicles to transport voters from hospitals.

    5. Each village has a person allocated a list of registered voters in the village to ensure a 100% turnout. All people who will not have voted by 2pm will be called and picked to vote.

    Thank Raila for promising security even to Kikuyus. Most of those backing Kibaki are doing it out of ignorance.

    Restate this message as much as possible through adverts stating ODM is for peace.

    God bless Raila!!!

  25. lexx says:

    @ kariuki i good that you have said this early enough and i hope that pentagon are listining the issue of causing mayhem in kibera shouldnt be taken lightly so pliz address the issue before they strike.infact the kibera people should be aware of that.
    on the issue of ODM and ODM K(sosa) the aspirants should make it clear to the voters that there is a big difference between the two esp the old pple.
    ODM is one complete orange as odm k is an orange and a Half and if they have a problem they should ask the polling clerks who are supposed to help in that in the full view of the agents of both parties.

  26. Soldier says:

    Hey !!! Someone from the pentagon should blow the whitsle on this callous and macabre atrocity PNU is plotting to Kibera residents. They must be stopped at all cost.

  27. Otsiatso says:

    I know the secretariate has its volunteers but this time wananchi are taking things into their hands.

  28. tnk says:

    otsiatso, that is the best news so far. with this in place, and efficient mangement, no amount of rigging will take place. kudos guys. THis is exactly what i had hoped for. Kindly close all loopholes to ensure that PNU moles do not infiltrate this process.

  29. tnk says:

    can ODM secretariat establish a complementary service to that of ODM professionals to reach the relevant organs (ECK and police force) so as to enhance the logistics delivery and ensure rapid response turnaround (problem must be resolved within 10 minutes) of problem incidence report .

    secondly ensure that PNU agents will not masquerade as ODM agents to cause confusion. set the standard of conduct and set it very high, because PNU goons have no morals or decency and should be easy to differentiate once the standards are set too high for them. PNU goons are just a bunch of rowdy rabble who will try to draw people into brawls.

  30. Odock Kizito says:

    The langata factor not fully examined!

    As a voter in langata, I am kind of amazed and even sometimes worried that it seems the talk about rigging in langata by Livondo and Co. doesnt seem to really worry our ODM camp. Does it mean that Raila is confident of emmerging victorious in langata or indeed Livondo and Co. have something up their sleeves which we do not yet know!

  31. Odock Kizito says:

    Now an interesting one;

    i have noticed this thing of dishing out districts as getting out of hand, Kibaki will soon run out of dishing out districts, what will he start dishing out? ODM needs a good final kick to the ballot box by discrediting these districts, how will they add ugali to my plate? How will they support the many poor kenyans? there is indeed no formulae on the way these districts are being created!

  32. daddy says:

    There is a list of ODM funders going around the internet and claims that even Kamlesh Pattni is one of them. I’m not sure how lethal the list is to us but I think something should be done as the count down continues.

  33. Jeff says:

    ODM secretariat,

    Please watch this YouTube video which shows that some PANUA leaders are trying to use Mungiki to cause violence and mayhem during the election day. Here, a Mungiki woman leader says Mungiki is being pushed into a corner by PNU politicians so that they help them in “riggin.” One name mentioned is that of David Mwenje and I’m sure the rest of Mt. Kenya MPs are involved. Pliz be wary of this.

    The video can’t be shared or embedded, so I pasted the pag where it is found. Watch DYING for VOTES-Kenya. Thanks.

  34. Otsiatso says:

    Ni porojo mtupu usigutuke, it has the smell of the fake Moslem MOU. So just fire back at them, after all it can not match KNHCR’s report which got front page news. Let them deal with that. Expect virulent attacks against Kiai led by Kimunya [ the curent attack dog]

  35. Jacob says:

    The secretariate should take seriously the threat of instigation of violence in Kibera in the next few days and warn ODMers to take extreeme refrein even when provoked.
    With Kibaki being booed left and right they could start blamming ODM.
    Victory is in the air but lets keep the tempo and pray we are not there yet.

  36. tnk says:

    i hope ODM pentagon is analysing and carefully scrutinizing the ODM candidates. we do not want a repeat of this kibakis govt fiasco where kibaki wants to run the economy but not the govt, the murungarus/mwirarias want to run the sleaze gangs and coffers but not their ministries, the michukis, kimunyas, lucy and others want to run the govt, but have no mandate, kombos and wekesa want public prominence even if its just window dressing, saitotis waiting in line, awori and mutua mouthpieces of events they hardly recognize, and dear old golfing buddies (sometimes called mt kenya mafia, or GEMA which includes a few of those mentioned above) sitting pretty and pulling all the right strings etc.

  37. SAM KING (MSA) says:

    Im very much ready for the change. Not only me, but my wife & my entire extended family (including my inlaws). By Gods grace Ive managed to convince those that were still undecided by telling & showing them facts on the ground on why we need a change.

    All of us who are ready for a change should assist in ensuring that those that are close to us vote for change.

    Im concerned abt the latest propaganda being aired every morning by citizen radio, especially this morning. I believe the ODM intelligence on the compaign trail is doing something to counter this.

  38. cratetuner says:

    @SAM KING dont worry about the propaganda 90%
    of voters have already made up there minds so hakuna shida hapo u just concentrate to convince more people to vote for raila sawa

  39. cratetuner says:

    hey guys just got this on may mail just know

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is private and confidential. Do not share with anybody (hope you noticed the red flag).

    Steadman increased their sample size to 6098 in their last opinion poll (as of Dec 18th) and these are the results:

    Raila 51%

    Kibaki 37%

    Kalonzo 9%

    Now you know, Jienjoy.

  40. cratetuner says:

    the figures above Steadman latest opinion polls – the one that will not be released (by password only probrably on election day)

  41. Felix Aduol says:

    Well am not weak hearted but the problem looms behind excitement. Langata is a risk as i pointed out earlier on and you conveniently ignored me. We hope wananchi there will more vigilant but so far so good, as much as am sure of ODM carrying the day country wide, Langata might be a stumbling block between ODM and forming gov.

    This is personal opinion and am not echoing anyone’s thoughts.

  42. faith says:

    Arap Mibey for prezzy i cant wait for next week.

  43. faddie says:

    @ cratetuner.
    actually it is 98%.only 2% are not yet decided.and out of the 98%,about 52% are pro ODM leaving PNU and others to scramble for the remaining 46%.
    the ship has left for the high seas,and the destination is state house for Raila.
    CHANGE IS ON THE WAY.

  44. Phil says:

    CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?

    http://www.gallup.com/poll/103306/Ahead-Kenyas-Election-Top-Candidates-Virtually-Tied.aspx

    Ahead of Kenya’s Election, Top Candidates Virtually Tied
    Forty-four percent of registered Kenyan voters support Kibaki; 43% support Odinga
    * Kenya
    * Government and Politics
    * Africa
    by Magali Rheault and Bob Tortora

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The latest Gallup Poll of Kenyan voters shows the two leading presidential hopefuls are still in a close race, just 10 days before the Dec. 27 election. Results from the Gallup Poll conducted between Dec. 5 and Dec. 14, 2007, show 44% of registered Kenyan voters say they intend to vote for incumbent President Mwai Kibaki from the Party of National Unity (PNU), while 43% say they plan to vote for Raila Odinga, who is running on the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket. Kalonzo Musyoka of the Orange Democratic Movement-Kenya (ODM-K) elicits the support of 12% of registered Kenyan voters. (read more at the URL)

    AND YOU KNOW WHAT? STEADMAN IS DUE TODAY, AND THEY MAY JUST GO THE GALLUP WAY!

  45. Aletheia says:

    Buy spotlights please. Kila mtu, nunua torch. They’ll come in handy for the vote counting. Someone might just decide to send KPLC to ‘slip’ ooops, did i say slip, well it is sleep. wakizima taa, washa torch Instantly. Report to your voting station with the following on 27th morning: sportlight, loaded and fully charge cellphone, water, snacks eg peanut and candy to keep u awake.
    Do not walk around with your voters card, you may loose it.

  46. lexx says:

    some nipe steadman result of today i have checked it nipe
    ODM JUU they told MK mpaka he gave them a district

  47. lexx says:

    some one nipe steadman results

  48. lexx says:

    i have just the results of the unsteady man and they are liers lets tell them that there is life after elections
    Vote ODM for real change

  49. Maru Kapkatet says:

    The Kiambu Mafia is doing everything to fool Kenyans. The quack of a pollster called Steadman has been campaigning for Kibaki along with their Kiambu Mafia sponsors.

    How can Kibaki’s rating go up when he had to flee from Gusiiland and Kurialand? How can Kibaki’s rating go up when he could not even set foot in the rest of Nyanza? How can Kibaki’s rating go up when killings in Kuresoi continue? How can Kibaki’s ratings go up when his untouchable ministers and top civil servants are misusing government resources?

    Wanjui, Muhoho, Uhuru, and Kimunya may thave been fooling Kenyans for a long time now. Their time and that of their Steadman is up. They are trying to come up with numbers favourable for massive rigging but Kenyans know their game.

    On December 27, 2007, all Kenyans who care about a bright future for Kenya, a Kenya where all Kenyans have equal opportunities to education, employment, and business opportunities, a Kenya minus a privileged Mount Kenya Mafia, a Kenya vehemently against economic enslavement of any section of the Kenyan population, a Kenyan hostile to mercenaries, a Kenya hard on the corrupt and grand thieves, a Kenya where al Kenyans live together in peace, a Kenya minus Mungiki, a Kenya where the wife of the president does not physically and verbally assault and humiliate Kenyans without any legal action taken against her. must come out and vote one and all.

  50. solomon says:

    Gall up results are even more ridiculous:

    ViSIT this site: GALLUP.COM

    Kibaki- 44%
    Raila- 43%.

    These will even assist ODM supporters to come out in large numbers.

  51. Auki Ollows says:

    Phil, their margin of error is too big, at 3%, for just 2,000 people polled… Steadman is 45% Raila, 43% Kibaki, Kalonzo 10%. ANYWAY, right now polls don’t matter, VOTER TURNOUT does… Think about it this way, practically everyone polled answers one way or another. In the election, not everyone goes to the ballot box… So, the only thing that works is GETTING OUT THE VOTE!

    CHUNGWA MOJA NI MAISHA BORA!

  52. Felix Aduol says:

    Who is PULLAP or LLAGUP or whatever. Tell them to Give Kibaki even 100%.

  53. Felix Aduol says:

    COME OUT AND VOTE ALL MEN AND WOMEN WHO FEARS CORRUPTION,DICTATORSHIP,BEING SLAPT IN STATEHOUSE,CALLED MAVI YA KUKU. VOTE FOR CHANGE. THINK OF CHANGE THINK OF RAILA AMOLO ODINGA.

    GOD BLESS ODMERS. I WILL BE IN KENYA ON SATURDAY READY TO VOTE IN EMBA.

  54. Felix Aduol says:

    Elizabeth Says. Be careful with that man. Make sure you go with him to the booth and confirm lest he lie to earn your friendship.

    heheh

  55. Elizabeth says:

    Ooops Felix Aduol… you just said it. I know he is just moved by my enthusiastic energy and belief in a just course that I’ve got for ODM. Have you ever believed in something so much and even felt it in your heart that ‘yes this is it?’ Oh yes! Yes the Real Deal if you know what I mean. That’s how ODMers have moved so many people with their staunch belief, creativity and hardwork that has brought us this far. Let 28th come, and I will know whether he voted ODM or not, you know I’ll hear their comments on the results.

    Lo….where have the ODMers gone? For the past three days there have been little blogging! Have they travelled already? I can smell something positive here.

    LETS GO HOME & GET OUT TO VOTE FOR ODM! CHUNGWA MOJA NI MAISHA BORA!

  56. Baijo M.Lorowu says:

    More ODM votes from Kampala Uganda. I am more than ready and will be in Nairobi before X-Mas to ensure Raila and his ODM team of leaders bag all votes from my family are in the bag.

    Let us all focus on winning. Forget about those doctored gallup / steadman polls. Real poll will be done by Kenyans come Dec 27th

  57. jackie says:

    Hey Elizabeth..yes the blogging has reduced…Truly the work is beginning…KAZI IANZE…!

    Wishing all the OMDers a wonderful and Orange filled Christmas…On my way out to make my difference.

    VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! AND LETS ALL GATHER TO CELEBRATE AT THE INAUGURATION OF OUR PRESIDENT.

  58. Mudekhere Owiti Silas says:

    guys….

    Been moving through Kk, Budalangi and now in Kisumu and surely I can say as Ngilu, I smell the fresh air of freedom! i’ve decided to ignore steadman, KBC and lately Citizen though I must just listen to them to know what they’re upto.

    Elizabeth, Otsiatso n Faith, its always fun reading your comments..there’re so graphical n catchy am sure all of us are getting encouraged to keep the faith!

    Now, Pls agent4change ask Ababu Namwamba to prepare and cover the following areas in Budalangi; Mau mau, mubwayo and Maduwa! Wanjala Raphael has dispatched another set of pangas in wooden boxes, packed in a white Pajero KAE…. i’ve been calling Ababu on his cellphone all day unsuccessfully . Having been a campaign manager for Wanjala in 2002, I can assure u, I know what that man is capable of doing!

    Just came across this on “Jukwaa”:
    ODM support
    http://static.scribd.com/docs/63qh96xx7bkwt.swf?INITIAL_VIEW=width

    This is not going to be close. I am reminded of the Referundum when Steadman had the gap as 4 %, got clobbered and turned around ati,’We knew but just did not want to share”.
    Here I am in the diaspora yet I am too hyper from adrenaline ya politics. I can not even begin to imagine what it is like on the ground.

    As someone coined:
    Makofi iendelee…Lucy tena!

  64. tnk says:

    http://www.kenyanpundit.com/?cat=51

    that really warmed my heart to know the feeling on the ground is same all over. I hope Othaya guys can also send Lucy home to rest, I’m sure they are equally disappointed to finally learn who has really been “their MP”.

    rigging/violence is still worrisome but have confidence that between ECK, police force (the really good guys in the force), ODM secretariat, ODM poll agents, ODM professionals and all other ODM volunteers violence and rigging will be contained.

  65. Shaqmaya says:

    Hi Felix
    As far as I know and was even printed in the Nation Newspapers, Railas sister and allies are in full control of Langata. They even recently organised a soccer match in Kibera called ODM cup. They are campagning on a door to door basis and Keeps RO updated on Langata.

  66. Kawere says:

    Otsiatso,
    I know what you mean. MY blood is getting hotter as the days approach. People, have you bought yourself some champagne? There is some celebration coming ODM’s way.

    I am in the diaspora and have been in touch with all my buddies, family and workmates all over Kenya by phone and they are all singing ODM. I just spoke with my uncle in Mombasa and some relatives in South Coast, it is only ODM on their lips. We have to take the Steadman polls with a pinch of salt. They have flip flopped and are unreliable. How can RO lead in six provinces and only mange to be ahead of MK by a couple of points? Doesn’t make sense.

    BTW, I was impressed with the Kisumu turnout. Awesome!. MK did an about turn after seeing the crowd that turned up for Agwambo. Mr. Dithers is shaking once again. Maybe he should have just accepted to debate RO. I really looked forward to that but I was not surprised. Though it would have been fun fun fun..

    When we wake up on 28 and the results are announced, some people will cry in latrines!! It will not be close! I have sent all my ODM friends and relatives a note to make sure they vote. I will be calling them from Canada and making sure my whole family goes to vote. This one is for the future generation ODMer’s – history in the making.

    Chungwa Moja! Maisha Bora!!

  67. edduking says:

    PNU shamelessly attacked Infotrack Harris and Strategic Research for putting RO on the lead. Now that we know the relationship between PNU and Steadman, and that the contact person in Kenya for Gallup is George Waititu, ODMers you need not to worry. BTW did you guys ever know that gaining 36% in 3 weeks has a probability of zero historically? And that MK defied that probability in NEP according to Gallup? COUNT DOWN, 8 DAYS
    TO KICK MK OUT…

  68. tnk says:

    the ludicrousness of our economists continues to confound.

    kibaki, kombo, kimunya, nyachae have all stated that the “econonmic gains” may be lost with a change of government.

    if these guys have been doing their job, then they should have put in place systems and policies that allow efficient functioning of the government. if they haven’t done their job they should stop looking for scapegoats because when the next set of leaders move in, they will audit their performance and give us the real picture.

    this treating of the govt economy like its someones bank balance or cash under the pillow where cash can be drawn or deposited over the counter belittles the intelligence of kenyans. I sincerely hope that this is not how they’ve been running the economy but judging by their behavious I would not be surprised.

  69. Otsiatso says:

    Kawere like you I called a friend who is home on holiday and my Q to him was to buy or not to buy the champagne? His advise – buy!
    My quandry at this point is that I can not get enough unfiltered news from the ground and it is driving me crazy. I visit this site a lot.
    What is worse is that the newspapers do not really capture what it is like on the ground. I have exactly the same feeling like I did 2002. I know I will not sleep well next week and I have set aside the 27th. as kesha. However I have this feeling that it will be over early like the referendum, based on what people are saying.
    It was reassuring last week to hear Raila say that ODM has been polling all along. I do not think they had a choice given the fake Steadman and the undue emphasis it garners.

  70. Ahmed Jeff says:

    ODM Communication Secretariat should protest at the Nation’s blatant bias against ODM and its leader. For example,

    Two polls by different pollsters reported with same message (too close to call). Though we are not interested in these doctored PANUA polls. Our message should be clear to the Nation which has become a tribal leaflet. Look how they reported differently by checking the Nation Headlines!!!

    Steadman final polls show a 2-points difference
    Kibaki(43), Raila (45) – Headline: Raila and Kibaki in Tight Race

    http://politics.nationmedia.com/inner.asp?sid=1079

    Gallup (Research Path/Steadman) show a 1 point difference
    Kibaki(44), Raila(43) – Headline: US Firm puts Kibaki Ahead

    http://politics.nationmedia.com/inner.asp?sid=1083

    NB:

    Who is Research Path Associates Executive Research Director?
    – Francis Kimani Mwangi

    http://www.rpa.co.ke/mgt.php

    And who is the local Gallup Poll Representative in Kenya?
    – George Waititu

    http://www.gallup-international.com/ContentFiles/member.asp?id=68

    So that’s how blatant the Nation has become. ODM supporters should know that tribal elements are the ones who cooking figures but we are ahead. However, the Nation should be blasted.

  71. sam juma says:

    Ahmed,

    You just beat me to it. I was researching who would have done the Gallup poll in Kenya and on checking with their offices in the States It Turns out That STEADMAN GROUP is their local representative Company. The same STEADMAN that has Raila leading with 2 percentage points did the polls for GALLUP and the results is KIbaki leading with a Point.
    ODM Wake up !!!
    Please put this info across to Kenyans. Just like the Standard showed the connection between STEADMAN and PNU.
    PNU is out to rig this ELECTIONS hence the DOUBLE TALK from the same COMPANY.
    The Daily Nation is a Party to this stupidity and ODM should call a press conference to expose them.
    STEADMAN was very aware that they could not manupilate the figures so they schemed a Third Party.
    All those sites that Ahmed refers to are more than adequate to confirm the conspiracy.
    The secretariate should respond immediately or facilitate a way for us Bloggers to pay for a full page Ad in the Daily Nation.

  72. sam juma says:

    Agent 4 change,
    am still waiting on your response.
    How can the same company conduct the same poll and give two varied results.
    STEADMAN did the Polls for GALLUP so they should explain the discrepancies especially in N. Eastern
    Whats so annoying is The Daily Nations ascertion that the Poll was conducted by a US Company,
    Lets apply some Heat on this liars.

  73. faith says:

    Hallo bloggers

    It is wonderful to read all your comments iam preparing to travel to juja on 24/12/2007 and return to nairobi on 28/12/2007 it would be great Kenyans to see the new dawn that awaits us i was talking to a friend and she gave me this challenge why we should not vote Kibaki,Lucy,Jimmy,Judy to state house: you saw the way this govt. skewed in the allocation of public funds if you give say Nyeri 300mio for water projects and you give Wajir 60mio and then drought and now locusts start destroying peoples livelihood isn’t the returns on investment from Nyeri still go to feed the people in Wajir so tell me how will the people in Nyeri really benefit from such investment infact people dont know but unequal ditribution of wealth doesn’t help any region it stillcauses overall poverty index of the country to go up . So Kenyans another food for thought go to the polling station and vote the ODM three piece we need real change.

  74. Jagero says:

    Otsiaso that is the greatest idea we need to make sure we are not infiltrated though. Appart from the agents voter turn out mobilization coordinators should also come from this team.

    The situation on the ground is solid and everybody only needs to preach voter turn out. Most likrly Nyanza will cancell out central province in terms of Precidential electoral numbers. I forsee Kibaki not getting 25% in 5 provinces. Count him out of Nyanza, Western, Coast and probably North Eastern. That is why he was in North Eastern and why we went back there.

    Don’t waste your time on Waititu, He is not the only statistician

  76. solomon says:

    Could ODM pentagon pick up the issue of Uhuru assertion that Kanu will demand VP post from Kibaki?

  77. ismail says:

    Hi guys!

    Well, just a week to go….and hope all of you are fired up!

    Again, the key word is turn-out! this is for all ODMers….

    But as for the yet to be converted..especially kalost supporters…this is how i have been doing it. It works.

    “I don’t care about all the promises ODM is making…but let’s just take a good look at the personalities of the candidates

    1.Is kibaki trsutworthy?……and i start mentioning about the promises of constitution, MoU, IPPG deal, and his clique of karume, michuki etccs. Then I mention his association with the ‘PNU activist’ Mary wambui, and I question his stand on monogamy as espoused by catholics….I confirm all these ‘with the slap’….

    2. Still on the question of trust: I talk of the hero – Githongo. Put it simply: here is a son of friend of kifaki who is in exile just because the clique around Kibaki were day-tim thieves. And more so…he is of the same tribe as kibaki

    I then plead : we can’t allow to be robbed of tax-payers money. we need someone at the top who can be in charge of our money proper…..compare the 3 and choose the one who has guts to keep all thiefs in check…

    they tell me: kalost

    then we start looking at kalonzo. Is he really able to stop a thief? He was in KAnu all those years, claiming to be clean, with eyes and ears shut kabisa, while fully aware of public money being stolen…..do you really believe he is able to stop thieves?

    believe you me: I have won several of them over.

    The take off point of the whole argument is: The problem statement in Kenya is corruption. period.

    not poverty/not cost of living/not constituition/not tribalism etcss

    Who then can fight corruption?…

    I have won several of kalonzo supporters just on these issue…..

    just that….capitalize on githongo…and put across raila’s record of graft war:

    If the guy is still not convinced, ask him: why do you think Moi is with Kibaki? why do you think Raila is bieng attackd by Moi/KIbaki/Uhuru/Pattni…..tcs and why do they want to scare people away from him? why no war on kalonzo?…

  78. ismail says:

    Why no war on kalonzo?

    I help the guy by telling him that Kalonzo is best suited in a place whre everything functions well and he can carry on from there….

    As for Raila, he is the man to tackle the thieves. I ma sure even his cabinet will fear him for any corrupt activities….

  79. ismail says:

    to make the long story short:

    the theme for the last few days should be just two. no more promises.

    1. Corruption
    2. Personality traits.

    and the orange crowd will continue swelling…..

    Chungwa Moja! MAisha Bora!!

  80. Bilali says:

    ODMers! Listen to this…..while we are busy crusading for high voter turnout some companies are working against us! I have a neighbour who works in Celtel Kenya as a Call Center Executive and he tells me that the company has refused to allow those voting upcountry to travel and vote!! Meanwhile those voting in Nairobi will only be allowed to leave the office at 3pm on that day!

    Can the Secretariat take this up and ‘make some noise’!! How many companies are working against us????

  81. Otieno says:

    Hi people,

    Solomon, good point – the way I read it, Uhuru just admitted that their is a succession plan.

    We are almost home now…3 things we must not lose sight of.

    1. Voter turnout is paramount – we must vote early and all of us must vote
    2. Be vigilant on your way to the polling stations and at the polling station. All rigging must be thwarted. And don’t forget the power of prayer! We must pray against all forms of rigging, violence etc!
    3. Secure Langata! Thanks to Rose’s (RAOs sis) campaign there.

  82. Noah Otieno says:

    Friends uf Change who are friends of ODM,

    I recently stayed in Moi High School Kabarak very close to Moi’s Kabarak nome for a whole two weeks. Initially I was scared aboit talking ODM but soon I learnt that the Mzee was desparate. He indirectly admitted in a forum he had with us this fact and soon I learnt that his own workers, majority of whom speak his own language are JUST not with him. They respect him but yes but not his current opinion. They emphatically say that CANNOT vote for any other man. If you think you are ODM damu, think again: those brethren are SERIOUS.

    When we parted company, they beseeched those of us from Nyanza not to let THEM down by voting less than 80% (unless the figure greater than 20% represent the DEAD!). If you are not DEAD or in SICK in bed you will vote. We are almost there. WE MUST VOTE.

  83. daddy says:

    Livondo enjoys a step down from Waruinge and another aspirant but that is incosequential. Rumours has it that Mr. 8% may hold a joint rally with Kibaki on 24th and step
    down on his behalf. If KM steps down that late, I know ODM will be the beneficiary. CHUNGWA MOJA, MAISHA BORA,

  84. tnk says:

    daddy you’re right. PNU have only three more tricks left, Langata seat, SKMusyoka defection/collaboration and rigging. SKM will come up with a novel way to defect, but you’re right it wont help. his defection will translate a lot of eastern votes back to ODM. vigilance at Langata, livondo is an illiterate and moneyed thug.

  85. Mwananchi says:

    Numbers are numbers. We are within the margin of error. What will happen if PNU squeezes a thin majority of votes?

  86. This democracy is expensive says:

    I know some folks including yours trully traveling home or have already travelled home to vote but it doesn’t come cheap especially with the over-valued shilling. Either way, I’ve always voted for Kibaki only this time I won’t. I’ll be at my polling station ,in Vihiga till the results are announced.

    Hopefully some day remote voting will be implemented.

    @Noah otieno
    loved your blog mois workers are ODM damu than as hhhaaaaaa thats great lets get out and vote

  91. Elizabeth says:

    Well! Well! Well! now that Waruinge and Karanja have stepped down in Langata in favour of this illiterate Livondo man, let PUNU go ahead and make themselves their own fools. We know whose payroll this man is. Mr. Livondo do yourself a favour, stop being akward in the eyes of everybody! Whoever votes for this man is as dim-witted as he/she is!

    And Mr. 8% treat yourself, join PUNU if you so wish huh… from here we will know your right place where you belong, and you surely will be judged harshly politically. If Kalonzo is serious on becoming Kenya’s President one day, then he knows so well that joining PUNU will be committing political suicide.

    Na wanachungwa…. the entire world knows that the people of Kenya have decided who they will vote for. PUNU can do very little at this point in time. And even if they win (GOD FORBID!) everybody will surley know that they STOLE. The whole world surely knows this! They have stolen before, they are stealing now, and they still want to remain in power to steal!

    Remember ‘they were caught with their hands on the till?’ Christ… what a government.

    They should go home coz CHUNGWA MOJA NI MAISHA BORA!

  92. Obonyo says:

    WE WANT FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS LET THEM RIG AT THERE OWN PERIL COZ OTHER 41 TRIBES WILL RISE UP AGAINST GEMA SO LET HAVE SOBER MIND AND VOTE FOR THE PEOPLE U WANT LET NOBODY FORCE KENYANS WITH UNPOPULAR CANDIDATES.WE ALL KNOW THAT ODM IS GOING TO FORM THE NEXT GORVEMENT

  93. Philip (The Visitor) says:

    MY VOTERS CARD IS SAFE WITH ME.

    I PHILIP THE VISITOR ALSO PLEDGE THAT I WILL SUPPORT AND DO ALL THAT IS POSSIBLE TO ENSURE RAILA AMOLO ODINGA WINS. I’M AT MUSIKARI KOMBO’S BACKYARD.

    The truth in Webuye: Sometime back we knew Musikari Kombo was unassailable. Now the voice on the ground is that unless Musikari Kombo goes back to his witchcraft then it is going to be hard on him. Sambu of ODM has become stronger and is campaigning vigorously. Kombo and Wamang’oli of KANU are going to share votes.

    What happened: Musikari Kombo has pocketed the money he was given by PNU secretariat. We knew he was given 200 Million however Citizen newspaper reported some piliticians in Western claiming he was allegedly given 400 Million!. People are mad with him. His fight with Mukhisa Kituyi has made things worse. Mukhisa Kituyi decided to support a stronger parliamentary aspirant in his bid to fight Kombo, who happens to be Sambu of ODM. Votes for E.M.K AND R.A.O were 50 – 50 as I had said earlier, but it seems it has started leaning on one side, Raila’s. There are still people who are supporting Kombo since they think he’ll get vice-presidency, but they are gradually being proven wrong and chased by Uhuru’s assertations that implies he might get it.

    However I tend to think Kombo is aware of it, I’m not sure. And that’s why he has decided to pocket the money since he can’t campaign for the government that will kick him if it gets into power. Kombo is fully aware that he can’t bring the votes to Kibaki as PNU secretariat expects from him and therefore he is likely not to have negotiating power. You should be aware that Kombo heads Ford kenya and not New Ford Kenya. At the moment New Ford Kenya seems to be at a better place than Ford Kenya.

    Kibaki had Central, Eastern, Nairobi and Western that he was assured of 25%. He needed to work hard in Rift valley and Coast to get the rest. Eventually he managed to get Coast, that is before the Real M.O.U was released. However after it’s release Kibaki started loosing Coast region. Luckily there was Moi in R.V, who made Kibaki to live Coast and start concentrating in R.V. At the moment he is assured of 25% in R.V but unluckily he’s loosing Western.

    I asked someone who stays at Moody’s backyard and here the voice is so loud and deafening. I’m being told that there was a time that it was gross violations of majority of the people’s feelings if one wears PNU T-shirt. In this place, but more than it is in Webuye, Moody can only win in one way, MASSIVE RIGGING, since normal rigging isn’t enough.

    The way things are these are going on, just rigging wouldn’t be enough to assure Kibaki of a win. They are also aware that they cannot achieve MASSIVE RIGGING. I think this is the reason they are changing their strategy to concentrate in Langata. So that when Raila looses in Langata there can be another election and during this time they can come up with a good plan since they will have the statistics of voting pattern.

    ODM now needs to work hard on voter turn out.

  94. ismail says:

    51% in NE?…….hmmmm

    mayb 15%….and all that from dujis of yusuf haji.

    let’s wait for results. it’s only a week from now.

    I even doubt the 25% in coast. let me put it this way…no known coastal community – whether swahilis, digos, giriamas, and the rest of mijikendas, are known to be pUNUists. the only community that will give them the vote is the gema diaspora found all over coast. and they do not add up to 25%.

    beyond that, mwakwere – their pointman – is said to be losing even in his own village! the only strong contender they have is mwaboza…

    Turn-out may b our biggest un-doing. And i hear Joho has recruited youths all over for mobilization on the d-day. Balala is great in mobilization. we remember him during referendum.

    am from mvita, Balala is the man, Raila is the prezzy, and the rest are kids. al be travelling on 24th from nairobi, after the mother of the rallies in Uhuru Park…see you there!!

  99. AFRICAN says:

    ‘What is possible may begin as a small idea, an idea that only a few people share. Indeed, the history of liberation movements has always been a history of a few brave people daring to challenge the powers that be, and then the idea spreads like a prairie fire among the people. But for the idea to thus spread, those who champion it have to be committed people, real leaders, people who can endure untold hardships in the cause of justice and democracy. They must believe in their mission and its future however long it takes. For real political leadership does not come with the urge to achieve quick results; it comes with the commitment to pursue an ideal to its logical conclusion. After all, politics is always about confronting difficult objective circumstances with the subjective will that is committed to a purpose.’ Jaramogi O. Odinga.
    This quote perfectly fits the description of one RAO RABET.

  100. AFRICAN says:

    Unfortunately many people, particularly those who are comfortably living of the labour and sweat of others are often frightened of the word “revolution”. Yet although revolutions have come and gone throughout history, this same class of people have not learnt a lesson. For history shows that, where a people are downtrodden in one way or another, they are bound in to rise up against their oppressors. – JAOO

    GO AGWAMBO GO. They will NEVER stop you in achieving the dream of many africans who feel betrayed by their leaders.
    the REVOLUTION WILL BE TELEVISED

  107. Maru Kapkatet says:

    Dear Kenyans,

    1. Please, please do not cast your vote for these individuals even if you value what they have done for you and for your constituency. They are an embarrassment to our country, an eyesore we should do without.

    Let us give ODM the chance to sell Kenya internationally as a beautiful country of hard-working people. Let us not put the ODM government in a compromising situation where they have to fight off suggestions that Kenya teems with thieves. The individuals who should not see any vote are:

    a) Gideon Moi: He is barred from entering the UK and will possibly be barred from entering any EU member country in the near future. Reason: Theft (Goldenburg scam).

    b) Nicholas Biwott: He is barred from entering the UK and the USA and will possibly be barred from entering any EU member state in the near future. Reason: Theft (Goldenburg scam)

    c) David Mwiraria: He is barred from entering the UK and the USA and will possibly be barred from entering any EU member state in the near future. Reason: Theft (Anglo-Leasing scam).

    d) Chris Murungaru: He is barred from entering the UK and the USA and will possibly be barred from entering any EU member state in the near future. Reason: Theft (Anglo-Leasing scam). The ODM government must in January begin proceedings to surcharge Murungaru for using a Kenya Airforce jet to fly to Seychelles with his family for a vacation and for using Kenya Armed Forces equipment un-procedurally to drill boreholes in his constituency without paying for them. Kenyan leaders have to be held accountable for their actions.

    2. Please, please, Kenyans, do not be fooled by the current feigned humility of “this young man”, John Michuki. Remember who he said he is – a snake who should not be rattled. Already, ODM has rattled him. If Kibaki wins, I shudder to imagine what the rattled snake will do to ODM supporters. As you go about your business, fellow Kenyan, do not lose sight of the possibility that there are mercenaries currently in Kenya . The only way to stop Michuki in his tracks is by denying Kibaki a second term.

    3. Please, please, Kenyans, do not be fooled by the heightened activity and apparent patriotism of Amos Kimunya who is giving one press conference after another and writing articles to the news media unceasingly. He put Kibaki in a hole by telling him, “Muthee, we do not want spots in the Ministry of Finance so that we can eat in peace”. He put Kibaki in a hole by declaring that Title Deeds are worthless pieces of paper. He was in cloud nine. ODM has brought him back to earth and back to reality. Amos Kimunya, you can hold hundreds of press conferences and write hundreds of self-promoting articles but you cannot erase from the minds of Kenyans two facts about yourself – greed and tribalism. Kimunya’s actions will also not change the fact that Kibaki is now history as the president of Kenya.

    4. To Kiraitu Murungi, I say that had he remembered that “Haraka, haraka, haina baraka” maybe Kibaki would have had a chance now. I would have forgiven Kiraitu for past sins – for turning the humble Gicheru into Chief Injustice Gicheru and for being the co-author of mass sackings of Kalenjin civil servants – but the recent violence in Meru which can be linked to him and in which one Kenyan lost his life convinces me to ask Kenyans not to vote for him.

    ODMers i have been out travelling to my upcontry and am back for the big day on monday. a friend asked me what if we win the presidency and looses the presidency what will happen?
    from his analysis, he knew we will certainly win presidency plus or minus rigging, only the margin might be different.
    i did my own analysis and realised that if there is anything we cant loose, then its langata.
    thats not only home to kenyans 4th president but he knows it like the back of his hand.
    there are many women and men there that would rather die with hunger than to sell their votes.
    i have met women and men who live below poverty line but they know they can only stop living in that slum if arap mibei becomes their president!~
    thats why ODMers, we sud fear for other places like westlands, dagoreti but not lanagata.
    i also stoped thinking about starehe coz bishop won it long time ago.
    u know by reading each and every blggers, u get not only to learn but realise this is a fight that all kenyans are ready to die 4 in exclusive of mt kenya corrupt mafia.
    kikuyu friend was telling me that even in his village in kiambu, there is a silent voices that are looking for change and 27th u will see thousand s for agwambo,on 28th they promised to come and celebrate publicly for the fisrt time after arap mibei is crowned.
    so where will the sleeping prezo get his votes?
    i dont even think kombo will give him coz the guy is only interested in money to help re built his collapsing ford-k.
    if u walk aroud, there is a mild panua support but an emotional ODM support.
    how will this baki man win?

  109. pabokenya says:

    We ODMers need to leave no doubt in our minds as we cast our votes, the margin should be too wide that by 28th at 2pm, the already packed first family will have no busineess in statehouse but call the incoming prezo to statehouse for handing over the keys.

  110. pabokenya says:

    ure ure ure all the ODMers. all the whistles must bow at 5 am kenyan time simultanoesly on 27th. we are going for nothing other than victory

  111. Elizabeth says:

    Can this Kimunya man shut up his mouth once and for all? The guy is so tactless and minus wits. I wonder what his intentions are whenever he appears on TV. He is doing Kibaki a lot of damage because he is not a darling of many Kenyans. He is such a bore and a nuisnace to any person who reasons well. And I believe Kenyans are.

    Let ODM take power, the likes of Kimunya’s class will be looking for places to hide their faces. He saw Biwot and Mwiraria Daudi being slapped with a ban and officially barred from travelling to UK? How sweet, these must be the signs of our times!

  112. Elizabeth says:

    Secretariat / agent4change where is Yego? I am getting worried particularly since he reported here that they were summoned somewhere by some people.He promised to update us! I have been asking myself this question for a week now. Where is this gentleman?

  113. kijogoo says:

    agent 4change we are concerned this guy by the name of yego has not been blogging for a long time . and he reported sometimes that there were called for questioning. the days of taking people into custody without charging them are long gone . its for the same reason that we are voting for change.

    I m too optimistic that the big day is approaching fast. i tell you guys i sleeep less hours these days . i keep witing in the internet for any news . Lord these are not election persee , it is a frevolution . i have never seen people yearning for change like this time . RAILA THE BRIDGE AND WE THE PEOPLE WE HAVE TO MAKE AN INITIATIVE TO CROSS OVER. WE WILL BE DOING THIS BY VOTING . ALL OF US . LETS MAKE IT OVER .

  114. faddie says:

    yeah,can somebody tell us where yego disappeared to.did they get to him?
    yego pliz,if you can,let us know what is happening.

  115. justine says:

    There is information coming from the 7th Kenya Rifle barracks in Langata that agroup of soldiers are being trained on crowd dispersal techniques for the last 2 weeks.There is a hive of activities a the barracks with a number of generals moving in and out,including Chief of the general staff, Army Commander, General Mwaniki etc,who are consulting in hushed tones. The soldiers involved have not been briefed as to the purpose of the training

  116. Njuguna Kariuki says:

    Yes is Yego safe ??

  117. duncan says:

    Odmers am telling you this is round twelve boxing and the punches are heavy to the blue corner!!!
    Yes,from langata i can say we are ready.I am off to the village to ensure that the hospital will be empty come 27th.May i wish you all including agent4 change a merry christmas and a very orange new year.I am off to the battle field to ensure maisha bora becomes a reality.Take care everyone,God bless you all

  118. Mike says:

    If Yego can disappear mysteriously then am scared stiff but I will still vote. Was he a threat to National Security or what?

    On full suit voting mine was just an observation that we need to look at keenly as a party forming the govt not that we are sleepless about it. As for me and my house we are Orange top to bottom because others are using ODM name to seek for votes and destroying our image thru violence and piggybacking.

    The foundation to stable democracy is strong party politics. Anyway Raila has made this point known early enough so no one will cry foul of not being consulted. There is a place in the Bible that says that a house divided against itself cannot stand or fight its enemies.

    You see right now any weapon can be used against us. Coalitions are formed after forming the govt or when forming and that shows we have a clear strategy. We are one.
    You are either inside the orange or outside

  119. zizi says:

    Yego should be fine wherever he may be. He indicated at some point he would be travelling to bring home that vote. But you rem he cautioned on his life.But he should be fine.

    We just need the majority. the orengo incidence is not funny at all. ECK should summon Mwanga over the death Orengo’s driver. Up and above that, I think Raila can have an audience with Mwanga on one to one. There may be some respect. He will own up!

    Have a good weekend.

    NB: i hope pple are not travelling to the village in the pretext of mobilising voters there while they leave Langata voterless! chunga Chunqwa moja.

    Cheers

  120. pabokenya says:

    hey wana chungwa, we need to Condemn in the strongest terms the removal of one vote for Raila has done by both Ochilo and manga

  121. pabokenya says:

    otsiatso, u know why kenyans will Never forgive kibaki is that he slept and may be got sick after being slapped several times that he allowed his house on fire without giving directions.
    the was nomination all over the parties and its where leadership is needed, i think raila sud better talk to this candidates and if they drop out the better.

    u know the print media only want to highlight our weakness but on 28th we will emerge victorios.
    some needs to remind Manga that malo malo also tried those strategies and failed.
    the person that has been killed was one vote less for raila. Thats what Manga need to know.
    i can promise u that this has missed Manga alot of votes. How many ple were unfairly defeated and there are not causing the bad publicity that manga is giving us?

    i can assure Manga that Ugenya ple whom he antogonising will speak on 27th and hope u make it.
    i believe somebody in PANUA is sponsoring this young brother of mine!

  122. Otieno says:

    Is Yego OK now?

    Moi is bound to get the shock of his life. The mzee may just get a heart attack come 28th. After all his gallivanting RV …actually a small part of it…plus the shenanigan with Kibaki at his Kabarnet home turf am sure he was so shocked to see the crowd ODM pulled at his home ground in Kabarnet. My goodness! That was a massive crowd…a charged crowd crying for change. The writing is on the wall. Like Muluka said today. History will remember “Kibaki for the economy – for those who have the economy in their pocket”

    ODMers. Tell you friends and family who’ll be attending the last rally at Nairobi Nyayo Stadium on Monday not to be drawn into violence at all with PNU supporters. We don’t want loss of life or people spending election day in jail!

    Right now am Kisumu and it is charged! I’ve met guys from Central Kenya who are voting Kibaki out! Young sensible people. God bless Kenya…ugly tribalism is coming to an end.

    Chungwa moja ni maisha bora!

  123. pabokenya says:

    i only wish that now ODMers we could be reporting whats going on in each constuency, pliz agent of change, we need to know areas where we are weak and then some actions can be taken

  124. Stephen Were says:

    I am also concerned and worried about Yego’s wherebout.

    Success is around the corner, despite all the dirty tricks PUNU continues to use. I hear they are again planning to drop hate material using helicopters on the night of 26th Dec, against members of the Pentagon.

    Please avoid heavy celebrations from 26th till after the polls. Our Captain promised 2 days of celebtarion after victory.

    God bless you all and God bless KENYA

  125. DEDAN says:

    Im absolutely ready. I inspect my voters card and ID every 8 hourly for the next 48 hours then 2 hourly until I launch my 3 piece missile on 27TH AT 0845HRS(EAT)

    By the way did bloggers note that kEMILIOn officially opened the processional way to facillitate RAO’S triumphant entry to STATEHOUSE from UHURU PARK next week.

    Cheers. LET OUR MIGHTY VOTES MEET AT KIVUITU’S TALLY MACHINE.

    CHUNGWA MONJA MAISHA MBORA ZAIDIIIIIIIII

  126. karanja kamau says:

    Arap mibey will and should be our next president, lets all unite and make new kenya whereby we will start treating all kenyans equally and tribalism will e a thing of past. help us God.

  127. tamasha says:

    Tamasha in mombasa but travelling to Nairobi on the 26th to vote in langata specifically. Guys no matter what lets vote, the horizon is clearly orange and the PNU guys are getting desperate thus the ridiculous tricks and shenenigans which simply depict the last kicks of a dying horse. ODMers please lets vote and convince and bring to the light as many numbers as possible we need change like YESTERDAY 27th can not come soon enough!!!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND WONDERFUL ORANGE TIDINGS TO US ALL!!!!!

  128. Odock Kizito says:

    Yes Tamasha….me too flying to nairobi on 26th and voting in langata. I just saw raila issuing kibaki a red-card on telly today…cant wait for vote counting to begin

  129. Georgesoros says:

    Wow!!!! Wonderful site full of delusion, day dreaming & self denial. But y’all will have to face the truth on the morning of dec 28. Raila will be in statehouse & in parliament but only in his dreams!! Less than 100hrs to go and he will be on his way to bondo onboard the pentagon bus to begin a new career as a fisherman. Dream on dudes. Its good for your heath

  130. Rob Maiya says:

    I am not really happy to hear all the stuff about rigging the elections. There is credible evidence to this effect, and ODMers especially in Kenya should be on the look-out for this. People should carry food to the voting stations on 27th. Above all, Raila should be encouraged to issue a personal plea to all civil servants and APs and any other people not to betray the country by being part of the evil plans.

    Above all, what plans has ODM put to ensure that there is no rigging especially in Central Province? i suspect that is where we are likely to get 120% voter turnout if we are not careful.

    I have already bought my bottle of Champagne and will certainly not leave my computer as from wake up time Thursday until the last result trickles in.
    Viva Agwambo!!! Viva ODM!!!

  131. Elly Manjale says:

    I wish I could cast my vote on Dec 27. Unfortunately I cannot because I’m TZ. However, I’m with you. I’ve no doubt that whatsover that RO will be 4th President of Kenya. Have a look at this BBC survey:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7140308.stm

    Agwambo oyeee! ODM oyee

  132. yuri says:

    domo domo domo railas time has come to stop domo and i dont think raila will win tell him to cry like kids always stop domo fanya kazi

  133. Betty says:

    I am so happy and believe that we are about to experience change. Something we have all been waiting for, for a long time. Too bad I am not home to vote, the best I can do is interceed for Woud Odinga and watu wote wa chungwa. I am glad to hear that kenyans are ready to brace the next regime. GO RAILA, GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  134. OPADO says:
