I liked the way Ali read the riot act to the politicians, what with all the insults flying from these charlatans' mouths.
But, what really got me interested was the part that said: "...nobody is allowed to make provocative or insulting utterances against his opponents..."
My one question to Ali is, Will he send his boys to arrest the President when he calls his opponents 'pumbavu, mavi ya kuku, wajinga.....'? Will he guarantee that Mama Lucy will not insult Kalonzo as she is wont to do? That Martha Karua will face the music when she calls the opposition cry-babies? That Mungatana will be summoned for burning his opponent's effigies? That we will not hear about horse and donkey parties anymore?
With ECK Chairman Kivuitu supporting the Police Commish, the die is cast and them politicians are on their own. Its instructive to note that even some members of the government have protested against Ali's 'highhandedness'! Its indicative of the fact that the Riot Act will cut both ways.
Over to you, Ali.
