Chapter 9: Incumbency: Your Best Friend
Flawed flow chart. Decision blocks must always have at least two outcomes. By then again, given your mind, that is probably what you had in mind, the flawed flow chart
sad that this is true.
I disagree 0.0001%. But, as i said, you are brilliant, so you knowingly made a flawed flow chart, to make a point. Perfect. In which case you are logically correct, though theoretically wrong ( by design, i am sure )
The flowchart is as perfect as it is diabolical. A re-interpretation of the old logic flowcharts by the esteemed researchers at the Institute of African Incumbent Politics where any concept known to man holds no water.
It is a summary of the African incumbent’s must-read pocket handbook. Heck, it is the handbook! A laminated quick study guide really.
M’s publication is a commendable yet futile attempt at re-educating us in the ways of the new process flowcharts. It may take a while to assimilate the non-rules because we are truly “Dummies” for embracing true logic.
All African incumbents’ “election campaign” slogans should just be changed to “See You At The African Union for Lots of Tea and Biscuits and No Resolution For I Intend To Steal The Election…Again”. :)
In the HIDE PRESIDENTIAL RESULTS module,you can add a timer function to run until you feel it’s time to declare yourself a winner :D
HA HA! Brilliant!
Ati “Presidency for Dummies (African Edition)?”
Most African presidents ARE dummies!
Now let me hide from NSIS.
Definitely true… You forgot bribes, blackmail and resurrection of old enemies as friends/allies…
Of course, the commish of police is a ‘friend’…
So sad yet so funny yet so true…
:-) Brilliant Chart!
is there one for what to do when u are accused of war crimes?
what is Omar-el-Bashir up to? I hear he is acting all peaceful-peaceful so that he’ll have back-up from the A.U
Lol. Right on the money.
All this while the masses sit on their hands… *sigh* Kenya is quite hopeless, isn’t it?
I echo, JKE. PRICELESS.
@-) i ha ha ha.. that flaw chart is just flawless!!!
Love that i get to name the judge to hear appeals against me.. =))
Diabolical. A thinly-veiled attack on the Kenyan president.Why not do one for opposition parties that use murder,ethnic cleansing, arson and rape to negotiate for positions in a coalition government?
George Mwania: M said African presidents… of course, Kenya is in Africa ergo…
So you were at KICC? Well, at that same time my family and I were in a town in Western Kenya hiding in a Good Samaritan’s house. A Samaritan who was shielding us from the masses baying for our blood. Why? Well, apparently because “our man stole elections from their man”. That’s where I was.
PS: Use forums such as yours to preach better vibe. God gave you a gift to write, use it wisely.
By the way, we later managed to escape to Uganda from where we learnt that the masses torched the samaritan’s house.
Yes am back in Kenya. Been back for a while now.
Now, “preach” may not be the right word but reality of the matter is that you have a blog which is accessed by hundreds possibly thousands most of whom are upwardly mobile young kenyans (between the ages of 27 and 40).This lot I believe is the only one capable of changing this country for the better.The older guys have messed up quite abit and the younger lot is not showing promise (refer to the post-election violence and the school riots).Thus, with such an audience, it behoves writers like you to “preach” or spread a message that is beneficial to us all.
Lastly, I have nothing against your writing style…to be honest it can be quite therapeutic.
George M., Perhaps you may recall the university riots more than four years ago when your comrades in campus would suddenly have a civil rights awakening, that used to take place right around when end-semester examinations were due. I believe that who you call the ‘upwardly mobile’ Kenyans were very much responsible for those occurrences.
You do raise a good point though. Such forums are key to creating a mindset of responsibility.
Once again we must be very careful not to meza the wembe with M’s sweet and tempting mnazi. It is not that I disagree with anything that M has said. No, His is an accurate description of the political process in Africa…we had Nigeria then Kenya and now Zim.
I ask you to be cautious because supposing we were to equate presidential elections with some tragic event, say a fatal RTA (road traffic accident) we notice that consistently the victims remain the bystanders, onlookers, the unsuspecting ordinary wananchi…yani you and me. Laughter is misplaced. Perhaps we need to be a bit angrier….
