Just for laughs!

This is the continuing story from State House, where
Mwai hosted Moi last week. Three years ago, Moi was
literally hounded out of the seat of power, bundled
into a military plane and flown to Kabarak, for the
first time in 24 years.

Some of his ardent disciples were left in tears. So it
was with a sense of nostalgia that the retired
President returned to State House last week. Excerpts.

Mwai: Karibu, karibu, Mr…uhhmmm mheshimiwa, uhhm

Moi: Just call me Moi, Emilio. It’s been long since
you addressed me officially.

Mwai: Wewe na wewe. Basi, karibu Bwana Moi.

Moi: (Casting an eye round the room) It feels good to
be back here. You know this place harbours many good

Mwai: (Smiling) I envy you. I truly do. I haven’t had
a moment of rest since I set foot here.

Moi: I know of your tribulations. Nimekuwa nikisoma
magazeti. (I have been reading the newspapers).

Mwai: (Hesitant) Uhhhm, the papers said you were part
of the problem.

Moi: (Fuming) Hizo ni porojo za watu wa magazeti
(That’s journalists’ nonsense). How can I undermine
the government of a man who deputised me for 12 years?

Mwai: Precisely. And not when I did nothing to
undermine your authority.

Moi: (Smiling) Well, there was that small matter of
the little money that you pay for my upkeep.

Mwai: Your pension?

Moi: Yes. The little money that your minister
threatened to withdraw.

Mwai: Don’t believe that porojo in the newspapers. I
personally wouldn’t have allowed it.

Moi: Hahahahahaha! Thanks for the reassurance. But
that’s not why you called me.

Mwai: Uhhhmm, not quite. Uhhmm, uhmmm. Now, why did I
call you?

Moi: Umesahau!? (Have you forgotten?). You know that’s
what those Orange people are saying. That you forget
fast. Like that piece of paper you signed and failed
to implement.

Mwai: What paper?

Moi: I think they called it MoU, na kadhalika na
kadhalika (etc, etc).

Mwai: Oooh, that one.

Moi: Yes, but remember I had dealt with Raila before
and I know him well.

Mwai: So what do I do with him?

Moi: Hii ni mambo rahisi. (This is pretty simple).
Weka Raila Kamiti na wengine wataogopa. (Jail Raila
and the rest will be afraid).

Mwai: Ai! His many followers will run amok and burn my

Moi: I think people overestimate him. If you remember
well, I jailed Raila twice. And when he learnt his
lesson, I accepted him in my Cabinet. You did it the
other way. Put him in Cabinet. Now you should throw
him into jail. Twice.

Mwai: (Sighing) Wewe na wewe. And what about Kalonzo?

Moi: Hiyo ni kazi rahisi zaidi. Fanya yeye balozi.
(That’s easier. Make him an ambassador.) A country
like Iraq is good. It will keep him busy.

Mwai: And Ruto?

Moi: Huyo ni kijana wa nyumbani. Patia yeye parastatal
ya majani chai. (That’s a home boy. Appoint him to
head the tea parastatal.

Mwai: And Uhuru?

Moi: Parastatal ya maziwa. (Milk parastatal). He’s
experienced in the sector, having managed his family

Mwai: What about the other rebels in the Cabinet?

Moi: What Cabinet? I thought you dissolved it. The
other rebels don’t matter. And your way of saying it
is by ignoring them.

Mwai: (Sighing) Sounds all so simple.

Moi: It’s all so simple. You should have learnt from
the master.

Mwai: It’s never too late to do that. Never too late.

photo-shoot. Such rare moments must be recorded for
