Raila Odinga And Hitler Are The Same, Dannish Odongo Claims (See Details)

A columnist with Capital FM, Dannish Odongo, has compared Cord leader Raila Odinga to the killing machine and much hated Adolf Hitler.

According to Odongo, the former Prime Minister is a replica of Hitler when it comes to employing propaganda tactics that are devoid of any substance.

He quoted a text on Propaganda and Persuasion by Dr. Garth S. Jowett and Victoria O’Donnel that reads in part:

Avoid abstract ideas – appeal to the emotions. Constantly repeat just a few ideas. Use stereotyped phrases. Give only one side of the argument. Continuously criticize your opponents. Pick out one special “enemy” for special vilification.

Odongo, like Larry Madowo who called Raila’s Eurobond expose as a ‘fart’, equated the list of suspects as ‘the hatchet of witch-hunt and convenient ‘truths’ which were buried in the sea of forgetfulness in 2015’.

In a veiled attack on Raila Odinga, the writer stated that the Cord leader and the opposition by extension had lost the plot.

His article read:

The opposition has lost it. They are like a tick that is used to sucking blood from the host even if it’s taken to the slaughter house. The most annoying thing about this whole issue is the fact that the opposition knows how to target strong men in a government. Their target is simple, cut off the head of every influential person in the current government to ensure that it is weakened as much as possible. The end game result is to weaken the government of the day so that it becomes easy for it to be toppled in the next elections. Even though that’s the goal of every politician; to win an election, pulling such stunts at the expense of our nation is quite unpatriotic.

This euro bond ‘saga’ is nothing short of a well calculated move to nullify the great work president Uhuru Kenyatta did in the coast. That’s why it had to be delayed 3 days after the president toured the Coast region. While he was there, he resolved many issues that the opposition has been using to control the region. The opposition is experienced at fanning historical wounds so that instead of healing, it festers more for it to be a constant source of votes. The strong conviction of their fans combined with extreme narrowness of mind gives the opposition lee way to manipulate them at will.
