Raila Odinga’s coalition demands recount as rival Uhuru Kenyatta takes lead

Dear Mr. Odinga

Rumor has it that you have been asking for a recount, because you believe that the vote tally that makes you a prospective loser of the presidential election in Kenya was rigged with irregularities. As I heard the reports of your “bizarre” request, I was not sure whether to laugh or cry; for the Raila Odinga I recall would have considered the word “recount” to be cause for heresy. Where you not among the fiercest detractors of President Gbagbo in 2010, when he made the same appeal for recount on account of the massive frauds evidenced during the presidential election in Cote d’Ivoire? Have you not called for an international army to dislodge President Gbagbo from his palace and deport him to the ICC rather than go through the more peaceable process of vote verification he was demanding? You must think of yourself as a very exceptional human being to believe that your verity only applies to others, but not to you. And, as you are now stirring the muddy waters of ethnic conflicts, suggesting in hardly veiled terms that a refusal by the election commission to recount the vote could “agitate [your] supporters,” I am thinking that you must, indeed, be very assured of your extraordinary global relations to think that any trouble you generate will indubitably be placed entirely on the shoulders of Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta, your rival. Mr. Odinga, do the right thing and listen to your own axiom. Don’t be a sore loser.
