Apart from facing constant ridicule that he is a serial nominated MP who always rides on the wave of party nominations to parliament, former nominated Jubilee Senator Isaac Mwaura has also had the misfortune of only enjoying favourable ratings online and in the media, but failing to translate this to actual votes whenever it comes to the real contest on the ground.
Interestingly however, the outspoken senator appeared to nevertheless propagate for virtual support even more when he mocked a presidential candidate for having a weak online presence.
This was said on Radio Jambo’s weekly political show Mazungumzo Wazi Wazi which was hosted by Bramwell Mwololo. Others on the show were Amani National Congress party official Brian Mulama, and self-confessed Hustler Movement and Wala Nyasi representative DP supporter, pastor Gerald Bitok.
Responding to a question about the activities of the nascent One Kenya Alliance outfit, OKA, and whether they stand a realistic chance in the forthcoming elections, Isaac Mwaura began by disparagingly saying that first of all, there’s no trust among them.
He claimed that the Wiper Democratic Movement party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has already been compromised and the threat of governor Alfred Mutua is being used to make him toe the line. He claimed that he has been intimidated to support a Raila-Gideon alliance or else Mutua will be brought in to replace him.
Mockingly, Mwaura went on to explain that just immediately after a meeting with other OKA leaders, Kalonzo went ahead to hold a meeting with Raila Odinga. He then wondered what the fuss was all about yet Kalonzo cannot even manage to get three retweets if he posts something online. Hinting that an aspirant’s strength can be gauged by his online presence, the former senator dismissed the Wiper leader as a petty contender.
In the recent past, there has been heated debate about whether virtual show of support actually does translate into real votes. Gatundu South legislator Moses Kuria had, in past interviews, dismissively referred to such support as fish fingers and Twitter votes.
