Kenyan Hip-Hop Sensation, Vikki Ocean, Returns on Stage with “Hey Girl, After a Short Hiatus

Also known by his former name, Raudy, Vikki Ocean is the Kenyan Hip-Hop sensation millions of Kenyans are yet to discover. After taking a short break from music, Vikki has made an outstanding come back with a seductive and stylish combination vibe that has been warmly received by fans and music lovers alike.

“Hey Girl”, the hit song, is a welcome break after a long time of waiting for something from Vikki. With a quality HD video of “Hey Girl” also steaming from the mixing studio, Vikki’s nascent fan-base can only hope that this is the beginning of the good times after being away from visible creativity for what sounded like eternity.

For starters, Vikki is the dude who produced the hit song “Size 8”, a classic which was borne out of Vikki’s collaboration with Linet who later became known within the Kenyan Social Media as “Size 8”. As he begun to spread his tentacles within Kenya’s music industry, Vikki found reasons to collaborate with both Oby Kanobyz and Laety Laetita to materialize the song, “Siwezi Mind” with his brother Eugine Ducer firmly behind the production line. Just like “Size 8”, “Siwezi Mind” was also well received by the “Vikki fraternity” and the wider community of music Lovers who literally elevated the song to a “National anthem”. But that was not the end of the game.

Vikki soon returned to the studio as his passion for music pushed him even further, deep down the pit of creativity. He teamed up with the famous Calif Records production line to surface with “Beat Ikigonga” and as the new song hit the air waves, Vikki meticulously rewired his connections which saw him link up with Maida in yet another collaboration which crystalized into the song “Siwezi Kuwa Na Wewe”. Then suddenly, and out of the blue, the situation changed.

The now 27 year old Vikki went on Sabbatical leave. Fans missed him as others questioned what had happened to this young talent. It is against this background that Vikki’s return ought to be sweet news to all those who recognize his capacity.

On the whole, “Hey Girl” is a number that will, no doubt, underline Vikki’s authority, not just as an Artist but also as a personality with a clear mission in his music career. With the release of “Hey Girl” (available on all leading online stores including Apple and Amazon), fans should be prepared for the return of the real Vikki, deadlier and smarter after mastering his artwork. His Sabbatical appears to have been well calculated because the result is here and fans can now all enjoy “Hey Girl” as they study Vikki’s next move. Well done Vikki and congratulations!

Late Edward Nganga’s Prayer Meeting Today at Hallunda; Burial on Tuesday, 24th March

Prayer Meeting today

Prayer Meeting today

Plans for the Prayer Meeting in Stockholm for the late Edward Ng’ang’a aka ”Dirty” are complete. According to Mr. John Muchiri, the Chairperson of the Edward Ng’ang’a Family Support Committee in Stockholm, the meeting cum fund raising will take place today, Friday 21st March 2015 at Tomtebergvägen 14 located about 200 meters from Hallunda Centrum (near Botvid Gymnasium) from 18.00 hrs until late.

Mr. Muchiri, who is a leading Kenyan businessman in Stockholm, told KSB that following his latest contacts with Edward’s family back home, the burial date of the late Kenyan has been set for Tuesday, 24th March 2015. Edward passed away at Nairobi West hospital where he had been rushed for treatment after showing signs of illness. Edward was on holiday in Kenya.

Many Kenya-Stockholmers who knew him closely are still in shock and unable to come to terms with the reality that he is gone forever and so abruptly. Following his trip to Kenya, and just like he had done on many occasions, his friends expected him back after enjoying his holidays but this was not to be. His Maker had other plans for him.

A close friend of the departed who called KSB said that he will never forgive Edward for dying at such a tender age of 45. “He was full of life and strength while when I last talked to him, he had a clear vision for the future”, the Kenyan told KSB. He sounded like someone who was sobbing as he spoke on telephone.

Obviously, the gap Edward has left within his family and within the Kenya-Stockholm community as a whole will never be filled. Mr. Muchiri appealed to Kenyans to turn up and join hands in remembering and celebrating the life of Edward Ng’ang’a, a good friend and a good one in deed. Edward is survived by his wife and children in Kenya.

Breaking News: Edward Nganga Kariuki, Kenya-Stockholmer is Dead

Died in Kenya

Died in Kenya this morning at Nairobi West Hospital

This morning, Sunday the 15th of March 2015, and against all expectations, members of the Kenya-Stockholm community have suddenly been plunged into deep mourning following the sudden passing of a member of the community.

Edward Nganga Kariuki aka “Dirty” (Wagiko) passed away this morning at Nairobi West Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya. Edward travelled to Kenya for holiday and according to information reaching KSB, be became unwell and was rushed to hospital where he died this morning.

Following the tragic news, relatives, friends, well-wishers and sympathizers are meeting today evening at the residence of John Muchiri aka Duka located at Korn Vägen 2, Hallunda, Stockholm to discuss the tragedy, condole with the bereaved family and to remember ndugu Edward who has left us without notice.

For those who knew Edward, and for those who closely interacted with this departed soul, he was a humble, jovial and social person. He was known for his calm composure, his respect for others with different ideas while he was a friend worth having. As a young man, it was unthinkable that he would leave so soon but here we are, Edward Nganga is gone to be with his creator.

Once again, the cruel hands of death has robbed Kenyans in Stockholm of a valuable member of the community. KSB sends deep condolence to the bereaved family following the shocking and unexpected news. May the family have the strength and courage to go through this very difficult moment.

For further information, contact John Duka at 0736157685 or Edward’s nephew Bena aka Karuruma at 0760849858 or Marto at 0764428592 or Councillor Mwaura at 0736694039.

Suez Canal Investments Website is Currently Down

suez cannal banner

Website currently down but will be back on Monday

 This is to inform the general public that the Suez Canal Investment cargo company that specializes in cargo freight to East Africa is currently experiencing problems with its website, suezcanalinvestments.com. This notice has been precipitated by an array of inquiries at KSB (by prospective customers) about the company’s website which has been inaccessible.

We have since taken contact with Mr. Ismael Nagy, the Company’s CEO in Scandinavia, who told KSB that the company is aware about the problem at the site but that the company’s webmaster is working on it. He said that the site will be back on Monday next week and added that in the meantime, Suez Canal Investments continues to do business as usual.

“We continue to collect packages across the Scandinavian region and another container has just left for Mombasa”, he told KSB. He said that customers who would like their packages to be in the next consignment can contact him directly on Tel +46703548345 or send him mail at ismael.nagy@icloud.com.

Since the company was introduced at KSB, Mr. Nagy said that a lot of East Africans have taken contact with the company to dig more about its operations. The company attracted huge attention because of its low freight cost per kilo (50 SEK) and its strategic policy of door to door delivery at an affordable 300kr handling fees.

If it lives up to expectation, Suez Canal Investments may be the next big business to watch within the East African community especially in Scandinavia. Many East Africans seeking to transport huge cargo have been greatly limited by the huge freight costs and lack of an affordable door to door delivery system that works in Africa. The business strategy of Suez Canal appears to be based on tapping on the desire of East Africans to transport huge cargo home while keeping prices low in a niche that has been dominated by big business charging a fortune for cargo transport especially to East Africa.

The Late Mzee John Odhiambo Aroka: Vote of Thanks from the Aroka Family

The late Mzee John Odhiambo Aroka

The late Mzee John Odhiambo Aroka: Funeral went well.

The family of the Arokas would hereby like to thank all Kenyans, friends, sympathizers and well-wishers who supported them morally and financially following the passing of Mzee John Odhiambo Aroka and his sister Isdora Ngere in Kenya. The Mzee passed away barely a week after the burial of his sister, two tragic events which not only traumatized the family but also breezed them abruptly into a lugubrious mood as double-mourning of two departed souls also set in.

Speaking to KSB soon after his return from Kenya, Patrick Odhiambo, the head of the John Odhiambo Aroka family, thanked everybody who showed solidarity with the family following the two bereavements. He said that the overall support the family received from friends was well communicated back home and well appreciated.

Following the bereavements, two solidarity meetings were held in Stockholm and Patrick requested all those who were there for the family to humbly accept this vote of thanks for their support.

The family is grateful to all those who accepted to sit in various Committees at short notice, all friends who worked at the various functions to ensure that guests were well entertained, well-fed and well looked after. Many thanks to Frank Odhiambo for accepting to Chair the two Committees without hesitation despite his busy schedule. The family wishes Frank many blesses for a work well done. “To all of you good people who were with us when we needed your presence the most, the family says Thank you very much” said Patrick.

Secondly, the family would like to thank all those who supported the family economically through their contributions, either at the functions or through bank deposits. “To all of you who took your time and resources to support us, rest assured that your support was well recognized and you will forever remain in our hearts and minds as good family friends”, Patrick told KSB.

Further, the John Odhiambo family would like to send gratitude to all Kenya-Stockholmers who managed to attend the funeral of Mzee John Odhiambo. In this respect, the family would like to thank Ochieng Nyambok, Oyuga Odada, Jane Odada, Faith Arodi, Lilian Orieny, Frank Odhiambo and Easter Rege for their presence. “We thank you all for having been there physically to complete the Kenya-Stockholm representation at the funeral”. Patrick told KSB.

On the whole, the family would like friends to know that the two funerals were well attended and that everything went as planned. As the family begins to pick up the pieces and to live with two huge gaps which will never be filled, Patrick told KSB that the family is at peace and united in prayer.

“May God bless you all for your kindness, support, solidarity and, most importantly, for your lasting friendship, both in times of joy and in times of grief. You made us strong and courageous to face a difficult moment and this is what friendship is all about. Thank you very much!”, said Patrick. May the souls of both Mzee John and Isdora rest in eternal peace Amen!

One Year Later: Remembering the Late Karundi Mathenge

Karundi: More funds in for funeral expenses

Karundi Mathenge: It is a year since he passed on in Kenya

One year ago yesterday, 4/3/2015 Karundi Mathenge was called by his maker at about 3-5 a.m. The exact time of his passing is beyond our knowledge because when the paramedics arrived at 6 a.m. after being summoned to attend to him, they declared that he had already gone after trying desperately to revive him.

His family is sending this message to those he loved to celebrate with us the first anniversary of his untimely death.

As we remember him, we want to thank most sincerely those who stood by and believed in Mathenge while he was alive and those who supported and comforted us during that most trying period when he passed.

Special appreciation goes to his friends in the diaspora in Tanzania and in Sweden which was like Mathenge’s second home, and to his Kenyan friends who were very dear to him.

We thank his friends in Sweden led by the Ngatias (Ngatia and Nyambura) for their support.  Mr and Mrs Ngatia, please pass our appreciation to Mathenge’s friends there. May God bless you all abundantly.

We thank his Kenyan friends led by John Gachie and Willy and other friends who were close to Mathenge.

John, thank you for welcoming Mathenge to your home when he landed in Kenya in May 2005. Thank you for being there for him through thick and thin and holding him by the hand [quite literally] even when his own relatives were not there.

Willy, thank you for giving Mathenge the wings to fly by providing him with the means of survival through Ford Foundation when he was almost at the verge of desperation and frustration as a result of broken promises from some political pundits.

To you, his dear friends and family, and others who played a significant part in his life here on earth and upon his demise, his family says thank you very much and may our Almighty God bless you and shower you with His abundant love and grace.

And now to you our brother, we thank God for the time He gave you to us. You were a blessing to us.  As your family, if there is anything at all that we could have done and did not do to elevate your well-being, if there was any love not given, anything at all that was missed, we do ask for forgiveness. We are not sure if the dead are capable of forgiving, but they say that the dead look down over the living.

Mathenge, we believe you are getting some much needed peace and rest there in heaven.  Rest In Eternal Peace Our Brother Till We Meet Again.  AMEN. [Restore to me the joy of your salvation. And grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.] Psalms 51:12

New Cargo Freighting Company in Sweden to Ease Goods Transportation to East Africa

suez cannal banner

Suez Canal has surfaced at the exact time when it’s services are most needed by serious East Africans who have been stuck because of expensive, unreliable, slow or non-door to door delivery of goods back in Africa.

For the first time in many years, and after years of research and hard work, Kenyans, Ugandans and Tanzanians resident in Scandinavia will now be able to send any acceptable cargo home, not just at an affordable price but also on a regular basis.

Suez Canal Investments, a UK based company with branches in Sweden, is the new company to watch. Suez Canal has so much simplified the process of sending cargo to East Africa because it has eliminated a lot of huddles and introduced low and encouraging prices. Cargo will be leaving Sweden for East Africa every 2 months while in the UK, cargo leaves for Kenya every Tuesdays and to Tanzania every fortnight. As the Company picks momentum, the goal will be to increase regularity especially in the East African region. The process is as follows:

You have a cargo you want to send home (East Africa) so you get in touch with a Suez Canal Investment employee in Sweden through the phone contact at their website. Next, you describe what is to be freighted and the price depends on the weight. 1 kg of cargo costs 50kr and therefore, if you have a 20kg cargo to be freighted to, say Kenya, you ought to be contemplating a price of 1000kr. Once you are clear on the cargo and the price, the process moves to the next stage.

You pack your cargo neatly. It is recommended that you use inner packaging (paper, cardboard or bubble wrap) to ensure that the cargo content does not move inside. The good news is that once your package is ready, a Suez Canal employee will pick it up from your residence or point of cargo departure at a small fee depending on distance. The employee will then weigh the cargo in your presence and collect the corresponding fee for the weight together with handling charges of 300kr. All documentation will be done at the cargo collection point. At 50 kr per kilo, and compared with other established freighting companies, Suez Canal Investment is offering the cheapest freight charges, not just in Scandinavia but in the whole of Europe. It is worth mentioning that freighting an ordinary car to East Africa through Suez Canal costs 7,000kr, the best deal available in the market. According to current protocol, the car must not be more than 7 years old.

Once the transaction is completed, the cargo is freighted to its destination up to the address stated back in Africa. Transportation to the designated recipient in Africa is done by a local Suez Canal agent and Suez Canal guarantees that the cargo will be delivered unless there are special circumstances beyond the company’s control such as natural disaster.

Among the range of services offered by Suez Canal are Ocean Services such as FCL (Full Container or LCL (Container Section), Air Freight (Door to Door), car shipping and personal effects. In short, a client can hire a full container or just part of it through the company and that includes clearing at the port of entry. Suez Canal has a dedicated and service oriented team of workers committed to ensuring safety of goods, speedy transportation and safe delivery.

As it begins to spread its tentacles across Scandinavia and beyond, and given the competitive freight charges offered by the company, Suez Canal Investments appears to be the next big Company to watch in the freighting business especially in Sweden. For further information, visit the Suez Canal Website and get a first-hand account of the process and dealings about this amazing company that will make it possible for anybody to send cargo to East Africa, conveniently, easily and regularly. Suez Canal has surfaced at the exact time when it’s services are most needed by serious East Africans who have been stuck because of expensive, unreliable, slow or non-door to door delivery of goods back in Africa.

Lizz with her hubby Clay

Members of the Kenyan community in Stockholm have been called upon to pray for Lizz, Clay’s wife, who is in hospital and suffering from severe malaria. Lizz is admitted at Karolinska hospital and Kenyans, friends, well-wishers and all people of good will have been asked by the family to pray for her and her family. Clay sent a call for prayers through a Facebook entry. Lizz contracted malaria while on a recent vacation in Kenya. At KSB, we take this opportunity to wish Lizz a quick recovery and hope that Clay’s family will continue to remain strong as Lizz continues to recuperate in hospital.

Deep Mourning in Stockholm as Dad to Patrick, Dan, Lenza, Diana and Victor Passes On: Prayer Meeting/Funds-Drive on Saturday 31st

The late Mzee John Odhiambo Aroka

The late Mzee John Odhiambo Aroka

Once again, death has struck at the very center in Kenya Stockholm. For the second time in less than 2 weeks, the entire family of the Arokas has once again been plunged into deep mourning. With great sorrow and deep sadness, the Aroka family announces the passing of Mzee John Odhiambo Aroka who passed away yesterday in hospital after a long illness. The Mzee’s demise follows the passing of Isdora Ngere, his sister, who was laid to rest last Sunday, January 25th 2015.

Mzee John was the father of Kenya-Stockholmers: Patrick Odhiambo, Dan Odhiambo, Lenza Odhiambo, Diana Odhiambo, Victor Odhiambo among other siblings resident in Kenya. Mzee John was also uncle to Jared Aroka (resident in Stockholm) and Ken Aroka who relocated to Kenya from Stockholm a few years ago. Family members are preparing to travel to Kenya to attend the funeral.

Following the sad news, an “Open House” has been set up at Dan’s residence every evening at Granbacken 13 in Huddinge where relatives, friends, well-wishers and sympathizers continue to pour in to condole with the bereaved family and to help them cope with this difficult and very trying moment.

The Aroka family has not only lost a father, grandfather and uncle. It has lost a guardian, teacher, wise-man and, most importantly, a humble and central pillar of the family who led by example. Without an overstatement, the gap Mzee John has left will truly never be filled.

As the family grapples with the tragedy that has struck suddenly, a “Family Support Committee” led by Mr. Frank Odhiambo, has been set up to help the family cope with great grief the Arokas are undergoing following two subsequent deaths within a short spun of time.

Consequently, the Committee has scheduled a Prayer Meeting/Funds-drive on Saturday 31st January 2015 at Dan’s residence located at Granbacken 13 in Huddinge. Speaking to KSB, Committee Chairman Frank appealed to Kenyans, friends, well-wishers and all people of good will to come together in Prayer on Saturday to show solidarity with the Aroka family which is well known in Stockholm for showing solidarity during difficult moments. What is more? The emotional burden on the Arokas this season has been heavy to say the least.

Having met Mzee John Odhiambo Aroka way back in Kenya, I personally take this opportunity to send deep condolences to the entire Aroka family and hope that they will find the courage and strength to go through these uncertain and sad moments of mourning. Mzee John was a great father who brought up very brilliant and successful children who will, no doubt, continue with his legacy.

For messages of condolences, directions, or for further information, please, contact Frank Odhiambo, Committee Chairman, at 0737643866. May God rest the soul of Mzee John Odhiambo Aroka in Eternal Peace.

Ambassador Joseph Sang Questioned Over 2014 Missing Jamhuri Bash in Stockholm

Where is 2014 Jamhuri cash?

Where is 2014 Jamhuri cash?

Jamhuri Day, the Kiswahili term for Independence Day, is one of the most important national holidays in Kenya, marking the country’s membership into the Commonwealth of Nations as a Republic, in 1964. Kenya gained her independence from the British colonialists on December 12, 1963.

From time immemorial, Kenyans in Stockholm have celebrated Jamhuri day on December 12th, hosted by the Ambassador of the day. However, in 2014, this was not the case under the current leadership of Ambassador Dr. Joseph Sang. Speaking separately, veteran Kenya-Stockholmers Messrs. Sospeter Otieno Opee and Gerry Midenyo expressed their profound disappointment, when the annual celebration did not take place. It is an occasion that symbolizes the end of the year and unites Kenyans from all walks of life. It is claimed that the Jamhuri event is normally allocated around SEK 400,000 taken from the poor taxpayers in Kenya. In Stockholm, it is usually marked by a two-hour session of binging and imbibing, at a location of choice by the Embassy.

Ambassdaor Sang seemed quite likeable when he came to Stockholm in 2013, but from observations, he has chosen to follow the path of his predecessor, former Ambassador Purity Wakiuru Muhindi, by selectively hosting or attending Kenyan events. From the Embassy’s official website, there is nothing mentioning in advance that last year’s Jamhuri Day would not take place.

Purity must be credited for not ever having cut out Jamhuri Day for the larger Kenyan community, as Sang did last year. Many are asking: “What happened to the money allocated for the event?” Sang’s premier Jamhuri Day in 2013 was met with anger when he hosted it in Husby, a suburban area of Stockholm City, yet past events had always been held within the central business district. As they await to see how Sang is planning to deal with future events, Kenyans need answers as to why Jamhuri 2014 went missing from the menu.

Kenya-Stockholmer, Isdora Ngere Passes On During Holiday in Kenya

The Aroka Family in Sweden hereby sadly announces the sudden demise of Isdora Ngere Aroka. Isdora travelled to Kenya around 16th of December last year for a 6 week holiday. Unfortunately, she fell ill abruptly and was then rushed to Matta Hospital in Nairobi where she passed away while undergoing treatment.

Isdora was married to Niels Linderholm and had 3 children. She was Aunty to Patrick Odhiambo, Lenzah Odhiambo, Dianna, Victorne, Jared Aroka, Hulda Palm, Alice, Rukia and many others.

Once again, the cruel hands of death has robbed the Kenyan community of a compassionate, loving and adorable member who was well known for her generosity, patience, love and, above all, a powerful urge to help others around her.

All prayers to members of the Aroka family during this time of great shock and sorrow. We, at KSB, hope that the family will find courage and strength to go through this trying and very challenging moments following the passing of a valuable family member whose shoes will never be filled.

Further funeral arrangements in Stockholm will be announced later. For messages of condolences and prayers, please contact Lenzah at 0739355553, Dan at 0739775556, Patrick or 0708856925. May God rest Isdora’s soul in Eternal Peace.

JOINT PUBLIC STATEMENT ON THE KENYAN SECURITY LAWS (AMENDMENT) BILL, 2014

Over the past two years, Kenya has faced extraordinary security challenges. As international partners and long-time friends, we stand with Kenya in the fight to defeat al-Shabaab and terrorism.

In light of al-Shabaab’s attacks and ongoing threats, we welcome the effort by the Government of Kenya to revise and update the country’s security legislation.  We encourage Kenya’s elected officials to take the time to review carefully the bill now before the National Assembly and to consult broadly to build consensus.  It is important that the legislation, while strengthening security, respects human rights and international obligations.  Protecting Kenya’s Constitution and upholding civil liberties and democracy are among the most effective ways to bolster security.

We also urge Kenya to continue implementing broader reforms to strengthen its security services, including their ability to collaborate across agency lines and carry out operations with full respect for human rights and the rule of law.  Building trust between communities and the security services is also critical.

As Kenya’s international partners, we underscore again our commitment to work with the Government and people of Kenya to meet this country’s challenges, including those related to security.  We are committed to our friendship and to assisting Kenya as it works to build a more secure and prosperous nation.

Signed:

Ambassador of the United States to Kenya Robert F. Godec
High Commissioner of the United Kingdom to Kenya Dr. Christian Turner
High Commissioner of Australia to Kenya Geoff Tooth

At around 11:30am, the angry youths kicked down ballot boxes that had been set up for the exercise. The youths, who were among ODM delegates about to cast their votes, destroyed the ballot boxes, saying that some of their fellow delegates had been either excluded from the voters’ list or replaced.

The Government of Sweden must do more to end discrimination against people of African descent and increase integration as part of a wider effort in combating racism and hate speech, a group of United Nations human rights experts urged today following their visit to the European nation.

The appeal, launched by the Working Group of Experts of People of African Descent, comes amid a heightened prevalence of xenophobic and racist attitudes against migrants and refugee communities despite the Government’s best efforts to counter racial hate.

“Afro-Swedes and Africans with whom we met expressed their experiences of multiple forms of discrimination based on their skin colour, race, religion and sex,” the Working Group declared in a press release.

“Racial discrimination is also manifested in lack of equal access to justice, racial profiling and the failure to effectively investigate, prosecute and deter ‘Afrophobic’ hate crimes,” the experts continued.

“We are concerned that this creates feelings of mistrust in law enforcement bodies among communities and discourages them from accessing help when they themselves are victims of crime or rights abuses.”

The Working Group – which travelled to Sweden from 1-5 December, visiting the cities of Stockholm, Malmö, and Lund – commended the Government’s plan to develop a Human Rights Strategy as well as a policy to accord priority to addressing “Afrophobia” and awareness raising programmes on combating xenophobia and racism.

At the same time, however, it voiced concerned about what they described as the “invisibility and lack of recognition of people of African descent as a specific vulnerable group in the country.”

“For a country that has been perceived as having a long tradition of tolerance and openness, the relative silence around racism and racial discrimination is surprising and worrying,” the experts pointed out.

The Working Group – headed by Mireille Fanon-Mendes-France – will present a final report containing its findings and recommendations to the UN Human Rights Council in September 2015.

Response to statement by Government of Kenya

Al Jazeera Media Network is deeply concerned by the Government of Kenya’s threat to bring charges against those involved in the making of “Inside Kenya’s Death Squads”, broadcast on December 8.

Al Jazeera urges the Government of Kenya (GoK) not to attack journalists or to curtail freedom of speech, but instead to confront the serious allegations that its agents commit extra-judicial killings.

“Inside Kenya’s Death Squads”, produced by the network’s Investigative Unit, features the testimony of a number of members of Kenya’s counter terrorism units. Each states that the police assassinate suspects on government orders. They claim orders come from the National Security Council, a body chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The documentary was neither “malicious” nor “unethical”. Each point made by the GoK is erroneous and misinformed.

• The promotional material for the documentary never claimed death squads had killed 500 clerics.

• The programme gave the GoK ample opportunity to reply to the accusations and included its denials.

• The identities of all persons interviewed and documents released were checked and verified.

The investigation was the confirmation of an allegation that has been widespread in Kenya for many years:

• The International Criminal Court has spent more than four years examining evidence of extra-judicial killings said to have been committed by the President and his deputy. The case collapsed after the Prosecutor accused the GoK of “an unprecedented effort to intimidate and interfere with witnesses”.

• In 2009, Wikileaks published a document that provided evidence that over 500 young men were killed or made to disappear in a police campaign.

• The United Nations special rapporteur on extrajudicial executions, Philip Alston, declared in 2010: “I have received overwhelming testimony that there exists in Kenya a systematic, widespread and well-planned strategy to execute individuals.”

• In August 2014, Human Rights Watch issued a report that concluded: “There is strong evidence that Kenya’s Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) has carried out a series of extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances.”

• Former Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga said on December 9 in response to our investigation: “I have been in the National Security Council and I am aware that the government has a hit squad.”

The GoK accuses those involved in the production of violating “the democratic space which every Kenyan must protect to prevent our democracy from being appropriated by agents and/ or sympathizers of extremists and terrorist agenda.”

Al Jazeera rejects this claim.

While the team that conducted the investigation is based outside Kenya, the statement appears directed at journalists within the country who examine and report on government abuses.

We note that the GoK is proposing new legislation seeking to punish journalists who are found guilty of “undermining security operations”. According to reports, the Security Laws (Amendment) Bill 2014 seeks to jail such persons for up to three years or fine them five million Kenyan Shilling (55,000 USD) or both.

Al Jazeera defends the right of journalists to freedom of expression and condemns attempts to restrict the work of professional journalism. It stands by colleagues in the profession facing acts of aggression and harassment.

Karl Marx of Kenya list Says God Had Nothing to do With Dropping of Uhuru’s Case at ICC

Uhuru Kenyatta: Should stop empty anti-imperialist rhetoric

Uhuru Kenyatta: Witness intimidation and other strategies led to dropping of cases

Below is an article by a guy called, Karl Max, claiming that Kenyans should stop dragging God’s name into the withdrawal of Uhuru’s case at ICC. Do you think it makes any sense; Just read.

So, Kenyan ‘Christians’ are blaring all over, claiming that it’s their consistent prayers that ‘touched’ God who, in turn, ‘touched’ Bensouda to drop the charges. It would be so comical, if it weren’t so blasphemous.

Get this into your skull: its witness intimidation, bribery of witnesses, reckless investigations and government non-cooperation that radically weakened the case against Uhuru. I frankly don’t know whether Uhuru was guilty or not and it doesn’t matter now; what I know is that the court of conscience rarely forgives and the celestial throne is nothing like the farces staged in this world under the name of ‘justice’.

Whether its Uhuru, Ruto, Raila or whoever it was who orchestrated the violence, the sword of conscience will haunt the culprits up to their graves and even beyond. The poor lunatics who actually raped women, hacked people to death and burned innocent people in a church will have to account for each and every single crime that they committed come the judgement day.
That’s certain.

Now, back to Christians: Stop adding the sin of blasphemy into your already spilling sins. Once the rulers of this world manage to stage their intrigues courtesy of their bottomless pits of wealth and their power, stopping claiming it was God who helped them.

Stop dragging God into your dirty cesspits hallmarked with serpentine schemes and political con games.

Once a millionaire thug bribes voters into electing him as a governor, stop the ‘Leadership is from God’ nonsense. You damn well know the dark ruler of this world.  You damn well know that the god of Kenyans hearts is wealth not God. You damn well know that its this god called mammon that creates leaders in Kenya, not God.

Even the devil with all his daredevil spirit, has never attempted to drag the name of God into the dirty affairs of men. You are exceeding the wickedness of the devil. And the horrible price for this will last up to eternity.
