A damaging book on Prime Minister Raila Odinga by a former adviser is in the hands of an extremist right-wing American writer who was deported from Kenya four years ago. Mr Jerome Corsi reported late last week on the website of conservative publishing firm WorldNetDaily (WND) that he had the devastating manuscript from Mr Miguna Miguna, which he claimed would threaten Mr Odingas presidential election prospects. Mr Corsi is the author of the scurrilous right-wing treatise, The Obama Nation. He has made a career of feeding American racist and right-wing propaganda about President Barrack Obama and his Kenyan links. Contacted by the Nation, Mr Miguna, confirmed on Sunday that his manuscript is with Corsi He said he submitted the 800-page manuscript of the book which exposes the culture of impunity and abuse of office to the US firm after a local publisher who had expressed willingness to publish it beat a retreat, saying it could only come out after the next elections. Mr Corsi had written in his online posting that the book could not be published in Kenya this year due to politically motivated government censorship. Mr Miguna said the book will be published this year in June, but sought to downplay Mr Corsis claims of censorship, saying it was his local publisher who developed cold feet. A major publisher in the country said the book could only be published after the next elections, he said. They had promised it will be out between April and June, but when I went to sign the contract, they said it could only come out after the next elections perhaps fearing the effect it would have on Raila. As a writer, you are always looking for a publisher who will give you the best, he added. Mr Odinga is among key leaders who have declared their intentions to succeed President Kibaki when his term at State House runs out at the end of December.
