The middle man...

This week the VP was up to his old tricks again, doing his now infamous jig this time the party trick was on show to those in the yes and no factions of the referendum and although the guests were not mesmerised by his skills they seemed to indulge him as he fiddled between the camps somewhat restless and anxious.

It all began with his support of the referendum last week when Kalonzo said in Kingungi as he escorted President Kibaki to Nakuru that there was still room for negotiations. Later that day he changed his stand after the President insisted that the draft would go to the referendum without amendments. He then agreed to amend and extend the time of the draft a proposition put forward by Higher education Minister William Ruto. But all was still not well for the man from Mwingi as he changed his mind once more and seconding the resolution not to amend the draft headed off to Muranga to sing the documents praises.

It seems though that no one told the VP to be weary of the powers…
