History Repeats Itself; first as a tragedy. Then as a farce
An angry President Uhuru Kenyatta yesterday threatened to ”crush” politicians who are opposed to his new politics of handshake with oppositionist Raila Odinga. The President called them newbies he made and can remake them if need arises.
Is history repeating itself? in 1969 an Angry Jomo Kenyatta says ” I will crush you” to his erstwhile close friend, the doyen of opposition politics Oginga Odinga and his KPU.
If the success of that crushing is anything to go by, the Tanga Tanga team of Deputy President William Ruto have something to worry about. If however, history is to repeat as a farce, they may be smiling all the way to the bank.
Only time will tell.
