This new entrant into the political scene has taken the country by storm and yet so little is known of him even as we went to press. In fact by the time of publishing this article, most journalists were still trying to find his facebook page which was proving hard due to the fact that no one can figure out his second name. In fact most political pundits are even doubting that his first name is Johny. But that said, he is leading the polls with 68% of the vote followed by Bikoli Wafoli with 3% and the rest shared evenly between the other guys who have been running around on telly.

This news set off a media frenzy with many of them descending upon Thika Road hoping to bump into this elusive potential future president. Robert Nagila accidentally ended up in Nyeri since no one could figure out what he was saying or where he wanted to be dropped off. Mohammed Ali has a sting operation with undercover cameras in every single matatu that are voice activated whenever the name Johny is mentioned. It has been activated a whole lot. Apparently that route has very many Johny's.
"Kenya iko fiti. Nani alisema tunataka kubadilisha jina? Kitu tufanye ni tupatie mayouth majob. Sindio?Yani mabudaa waende...ho?...waende home? Ama wewe unacheki aje hiyo rysto?"
Only time will tell if this will be another flash in the pan as far as politcal stories go or we could be talking to the next occupant of the house on the hill. Polls show he has cultivated a big lead and is the candidate of choice in all provinces except the Coast which apparently isn't Kenya. Demographically speaking, he is also leading when it comes to mothers of kanges which we know is a very crucial voting bloc with up to 25 votes. But only time will tell if our next head of state will be the first to know what rwabe means. Pretty soon we shall see if he lives up to his campaign mantra, 'Kama matatu ina joto, usifungue dirisha...panda fridge.' Deep. Think about it.
