John Mahama sets up Kenya vote rigging center in Accra?

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 Source: Fadi Dabbousi

Given the strong friendship ties between John Mahama of Ghana and Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, it is the fervent wish of the former to see the latter win big in the presidential elections that took place in Kenya yesterday.

It does not surprise me because my suspicion is harboured in the urgency that the ousted former Ghanaian first family and their circles feel to have safe havens where they can stash whatever loot they might have grabbed from the national purse during the very distressful days of the NDC rule between 2009 and 2017.

There are rumours in town that seek to inform the nation that John Dramani Mahama was in Kenya to give his friend Uhuru moral support.

I do not believe that at all. In fact, there is nothing that our ex-president would do if it does not have a direct benefit for him. His lewd governance in Ghana was an indication of his greed, selfishness, iniquity, and general intolerance of constructive criticism evident in the insults he heaped on Ghanaians, like “baloney”, “Ghanaians have short memories”, and so on and so forth.

Yesterday, I chanced upon a massive gathering of cars at the former first lady’s office as I came through. They were so many that the flow of traffic was impeded.

Of course, as is always the case with the Mahama’s show of insensitivity, no one was detailed to man the narrow road that could have made for a perfect example of Bernoulli’s principle.

What were the many people doing in that office? Was it really the case that John Mahama had established a vote rigging center for Kenya’s Uhuru to be administered via the internet using codes and empty todes?

I am aware that he seems quite confused and desperate, as he has lost grounds in Ghana, and is losing good rapport with other countries where his friends are falling out of favour with their people, too.

That might explain the people’s notion that he is assisting Uhuru rig the elections from afar. I won’t be surprised given his election in 2012 via errors of all kinds: dispositional; clerical; administrative; etc etc.

You see, it makes sense that Uhuru wants to maintain the status quo in spite of his lost popularity. Who knows? Maybe the powers that were, including STL, may well be involved from various points across the globe, Ghana being one of them.

Can we say that this is “Vote Rigging at Large?”

The very mention of Peter MacManu shakes the bowels of John Mahama and his “friends at large”. It was Peter MacManu, who engineered the collapse of the NDC vote rigging machinery.

It is said that at the behest of John Mahama, the NPP national champion was deported. What a shame! In this age and era, when the world is opening up to freedom of movement, the urgent need for improved voting ethics, and democratic sustainability, Uhuru Kenyatta seems to be a recalcitrant Kenyan, who does not mind the bloodshed in his country, GOD forbid. After all, he is wanted by the International Criminal Court for spilling the blood of thousands of innocent country men and women.

The import of this article is to inform the world that Ghanaians suspect John Mahama of setting up a vote rigging center in Accra for the Kenyan elections with the principle purpose of enhancing the electoral fortunes of Uhuru Kenyatta.

Why Uhuru is trying to soil the hard earned reputation of his father “Jomo Kenyatta” is still my muse.

This very Jomo whom I revere! The very person who said, and I quote, “When the missionaries arrived, the Africans had the land, and they had the bible. They taught us how to pray with our eyes closed. When we opened them, they had the land and we had the bible!”

Of course, and it is my favourite quote ever.
