STANDARD GROUP ONLINE EDITOR DAVID OHITO AND THE GROUP'S POLITICAL EDITOR MARTIN MUTUA and other media dignitaries seen here in a jovial mood when they met Uhuru Kenyatta for "tea" at statehouse. Mnafikiria tumesahau? It is suspected that it is in this meeting where a resolution was reached that the opposition should be fought from all corners and by all means. They agreed that this should be done through malicious propaganda, innuendos and guess work reporting. They further agreed to use every opportunity to malign, misreport, misquote Raila Odinga and blacken the name of ODM. Hence the latest article you all read on Sunday.

Killing the opposition or making it weak is not the solution to a broke government. You need a strong opposition, you need to subject yourselves to the taxman and not cheat with 20% here and 10% there, you need to fight corruption from all fronts and encourage impartial media reporting.

If this is what this "tea" was all about, now we know . And as ODM and Raila supporters we shall bring it to your door steps. Chukua...
