Miguna Miguna's Book Spills Raila's Secrets
Love him or hate him, Miguna Miguna is a man known for his rubble rousing mien.
The former adviser to Prime Minister Raila Odinga on Constitutional Affairs has made public some of the best kept secrets around his former master.
In some of the excerpts seen by The Standard Digital, Miguna who stirred fresh controversy last week when he publicly invited media to the launch of his new book Peeling Back the Mask: A quest for Justice in Kenya and named the Chief Justice Dr Willy Mutunga as the chief guest.
Moments later the CJ turned down the invite saying he could not preside the launch of a book he has neither seen nor read.
In one of the excerpts, Miguna Miguna recounts a meeting between President Kibaki and Raila at the height of differences of the presidential election.
The 500 page book has just released some of the excerpts ahead of next week's launch. Here are the excerpts:
On Raila and Kibaki's relationship:
“Eeeeh...eehhhh..eiiii...Please save me from Kibaki! Eeeeeh..eiiiii...Please don’t let me go back to that man...I don’t want to go back to Kibaki! Eeeeh...eiii...Please save me from Kibaki!” Raila broke down and cried, torrents of tears flowing freely down hischeeks.
He was shaking uncontrollably. It was about 3:30pm on April 6, 2008. Everyone in the room was stunned.
They had never seen Raila cry before. We looked at each other, unable to move. No one was prepared for this heart-wrenching scene. I guess we had assumed that Raila was‘superhuman’.
He had a larger-than-life image in the consciousness of Kenyans...But there he was, someone we all held in awe, wailing uncontrollably in front of everyone...Raila had just returned from a face-to-face meeting with Kibaki over the formation of the grand coalition government following the signing of the National Accord and reconciliation agreement on February 28 2008.
By then he had attended various meetings and most had ended in stalemate or Raila's capitulation. Raila's debriefs...had become a routine in itself, with Raila repeating, "Kibaki can't accept this" or "Kibaki is insisting on that" Raila was not only crying he was sweating profusely.
The book is published by Gilgamesh Publishing Limited and is retailing at 24.95 pounds, (about Sh 3,300.). It will be launched on July 14 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Nairobi.

Miguna Miguna, Raila-the president 2b was in good terms wth u and during that tym u neva wrote anything good about him, why did u wait until crossed with ndio ukaanza shit about him. Raila the current PM is our next president n u shud leav him alone.
In fact, we need more of migunas to come out openly and unravel the truths as to what is happening behind the scenes.There is a lot of drama and these people in the government assume a situational irony blindly, assuming that Kenyans are not vigilant recording everything a it occurs. They have taken enough for the owner to notice and that is why we want to wipe all the past sell by date politicians.
We must know the truth so go Miguna. Go cast some light on this hypocrite.
This is a big joke and can never be true we know Raila as a superman and THE PRESIDENT TO BE.
Miguna is clearly betraying his motives, if truly what he's writing is what happened then why did he have to wait till he was sacked and the polls are in the corner? If he really cared of the well-being of the Kenyan citizens then he should've walked out on the next President come 2013.
In everything acted in the dark comes into daylight,likewise the cry of 82 can't go unpaid it was do en passed But the one in secret sees all. In additional the 2007/2008, Mr PM if hi was a real Patriot hi could have sought legal justice, like any other constituency seat did it and was decided justifiably.
So Miguna is doing it right as patriot. don't be like many who are work in Asian firms there they see all the underground business that go on e.g. shifting custom and and keeping two VAT books yet no body talks for the betterment of our Nation en coming generation.
Lets not fool ourselves! Where there is smoke most likely fire is close. Well, we lost so much in 2007/2008 that any suspicious clue can never be rubbished as much as we may be liking a leader. Its time we separated issues from personal interests.
Thieves, robbers and murderers stand in court defending the obvious...in some cases they win....listen to voices of reason....they can save us!
True miguna is right, these people are already in govt yet claiming they are reformist and we should vote for them, Why are they not actualizing their reforms now. Michuki never walked the streets agitating for reforms yet he is the only cabinet who appeared to be reform oriented. As for these "reformers", reforms are only on their lips.
