By Omitting Oginga,Mboya and Raila from his liberation list shows how TRIBAL President Uhuru is

Uhuru omits Jaramogi Oginga Odinga,Tom Mboya and  Raila Odinga from first and second liberation heroes’ list and failed to recognize them as heroes. Despite honouring many heroes and heroines during Thursday’s 7th Mashujaa Day celebrations, President Uhuru Kenyatta noticeably left out three iconic men whose contribution to Kenya’s struggle is irrefutable.

If this is what President Uhuru can afford to do openly just because the three icons are from Luo land then i wonder what a normal kikuyu can do to them,Uhuru should be the last person to warn Kenyans against tribalism or fight it . He’s preaching peace openly  but doing quite the opposite, he’s practicing hatred,tribalism and decisive politics which he is always warning Kenyans against.

The bitter truth is,even if he omits their names from his “Handwritten list of heroes” he can’t omit the three iconic men from the history and our minds too.

Mr.Oginga Odinga and Tom Mboya  are undisputed icons of Kenya’s “opposition politics” and played important roles in second liberation struggles which freed the country from one-party rule.
