Massive Plunder of National Treasury Indicates Bad Governance Under Uhuru Kenyatta

Jared Odero

Jared Odero: The presidency is led by two men whose tenure in Kibaki’s government for instance, was riddled with incompetence and suspicious misuse of public funds

The newly released Auditor General’s damning report on Kenya’s “suspected expenditure” totaling KSh450 bllion within Government for the fiscal year 2013-14, has shocked Kenyans a few days after President Obama’s tough-talk on corruption, while visiting the country. Specific Ministries, Departments and Commissions, have accumulated a total loss of KSh66 billion. The Auditor General, Mr. Edward Ouko, has also noted that only 1.2% out of the country’s KSh1 trillion budget can be accounted for. The report shows how far the roots of corruption have permeated the fabric of Kenyan society.

The World Bank’s Report “Decision Time: Spend More or Spend Smart? Kenya Public Expenditure Review [PER] Volume 1 December 2014” raised a red flag on the rising public expenditure and increased public debt. “The reasons are varied and weighty: rising costs of rolling out devolution; costs of financing national security; huge infrastructure investments; funding of flagship projects to fulfill pre-election pledges; and, a hefty public wage bill, among others” (p. ii). The report further states that though Kenya has a robust tax system, the rising budgetary pressure undermines the revenue base whose sustainability is at risk, since the County governments have constrained capacity to generate adequate revenue.

“Kenya’s tax system is heavily dependent on income taxes which account for 50 percent of tax revenue (9 percent of GDP) as consumption taxes underperform at 5.7 percent of GDP generating 25.5 percent of revenues. VAT contributes about a quarter (4.6 percent of GDP) and the balance is from excise and import duty (Figure 4.2). In 2013/14, Kenya revenue/GDP ratio improved by one percentage points to about 19.2 percent. The growth was mainly from PAYE (0.3 percent), corporation tax (0.2 percent) and VAT (0.5 percent). Growth also emanated from non-tax agency revenue which grew by 0.4 percent mainly due to introduction of the railway development levy” (p. 43).

The above paragraph indicates that a high percentage of government revenue is generated from personal income tax, i.e. pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) squeezed from a workforce of some 22 million Kenyans, according to the PER. The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) met its revised revenue collection target of Sh963.7 billion at the end of the fiscal year in June 2015. Treasury’s set target for the taxman is KSh1.18 trillion for 2015-16, while the national budget is KSh1.7 trillion.

Where then, is the incentive to pay taxes if KSh450 billion has been suspiciously used to finance personal interest yet development is neglected? When Kenya turned to face East (read China) during Kibaki’s leadership, massive borrowing became the norm since his Government had escaped the scrutiny and conditionalities that come with borrowing from the West. Kenya’s debt burden is unsustainable at this rate, because recurrent expenditure almost surpasses the collected income. Continuous borrowing is thus the only solution. However, plundering State coffers to the tune of billions of Shillings, is the biggest factor leading to massive losses of revenue in Kenya. From time immemorial, sitting governments have never taken the Auditor General’s reports seriously. If such reports are that damning and reveal the deep rot in Government, why bother to have the incompetent, politically-influenced Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission? The Auditor General’s reports should lead to prosecution.

Massive plunder and poor governance
Kenya’s macro-economic growth barely trickles to the micro level because the political class must keep the voters poor. This enables them to go back and manipulate them with goodies and bogus stories of how the national government has refused to provide money for development at the county and constituency levels. For many years during Kibaki’s presidency, Members of Parliament had full control of the Constituency Development Fund (CDF), yet very few managed to transform their constituents’ livelihoods.

The documentary film “Unfinished Business: What it means to be poor in the land of Presidents” by Maina Kiai, currently the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights to Freedom, questions what the ordinary Kikuyu have gained from having three presidents from the Mount Kenya region since independence in 1963. Kibaki’s 10-year presidency did not leave any special impact economically in his home area of Nyeri, nor did the late Jomo Kenyatta, in Kiambu. The same can be said of Rift Valley, under Dictator Moi. The presidency wields a lot of power and money, and can be used by wise leaders to transform Kenya into a vibrant and inclusive economy, but that has never been the case. The PER by the World Bank shows that curative health budget allocation favors the rich, while the poor are left with a lower budget for preventive healthcare. Surely, how can a sick nation grow economically? There has to be an equitable budgetary allocation for healthcare to bring inclusive growth.

The presidency is led by two men whose tenure in Kibaki’s government for instance, was riddled with incompetence and suspicious misuse of public funds. Uhuru Kenyatta as Finance Minister encountered a “Computer Error” (discrepancies) amounting to Ksh10.7 billion in the revised Supplementary Budget in May 2009. Although he was let off the hook by Kibaki’s side of Government, this was a sign of incompetence since by the time a budget is being presented in public, it must have passed through serious scrutiny. Other questionable actions by Uhuru at that time include the single-sourced purchase of Passat vehicles for Ministers and top Government officials, in the name of cutting back on public expenditure. Ironically as President, his Cabinet Secretaries drive some of the biggest fuel guzzlers in the country. Is he a principled leader?

Deputy President Ruto is not new to big financial scandals which can be traced back to when he was Organizing Secretary of the infamous Youth for Kanu ’92 (YK92). According to a blog, “Before 1992, Ruto used to idle around the Hilton Hotel, jobless. The Youth for Kanu ‘92 gave him a lifeline. With Cyrus Jirongo, they devoured on millions of stolen money to campaign for Kanu. And when he got a chance to join the government, Ruto went on a looting spree, almost bankrupting the Kenya Pipeline.” (http://www.kenyanentrepreneur.com/is-william-ruto-a-dead-man-walking)

Ruto was later linked to the illegal acquisition of 100 acres of land during the post-election violence in 2007/08, belonging to Eldoret farmer Adrian Muteshi, In 2013, he was ordered by the High Court to vacate the land and pay Ksh5 million to compensate Mr. Muteshi for the loss of earnings during his illegal occupation. William Ruto claimed ignorance in the process of purchasing the land, yet he owns massive property worth billions of shillings, and is smart enough to search for ownership before signing a land deal.

Uhuru and Ruto’s followers have invested so much emotion in supporting them politically, they have become blind to their well-oiled machinery of looting the national Treasury. The two leaders have compressed so much hope into their sycophants by marketing and talking big about economic growth in the service sector and through information and communications technology (ICT), yet the massive plunder of KSH 66 billion indicates that the country is surviving on the basis of robbing the taxpayer to finance their rock star lifestyles. William Ruto does not occupy his official home though it is maintained by the poor taxpayer. Similarly, Kibaki does not occupy his official retirement home in Mweiga, yet it is fully funded by poor Kenyans. This is Kenya gone to the dogs under the leadership of Uhuru, the son of Jomo Kenyatta.

New Report Says More Than Ksh 66 Billion Looted by Jubilee As Obama’s Air Force One Left JKIA

66 billion stolenJust as President Barack Obama’s Air Force One was taking off from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to Ethiopia on Sunday evening, Mr. Edward Ouko, the Auditor General, was releasing a damning Report which indicated that during the 2013/2014 financial year, members of the Jubilee government looted over Ksh 66 billion from the Treasury.

This latest Report further underlines the extent to which Jubilee government is looting the Kenyan economy.  After coming to power through a rigged election, The administration of Uhuru Kenyatta has specialized in stealing taxpayer’s money.

Using the principle of “It’s our turn to eat”, there appears to be no limit to corruption. The anti-corruption bodies in place to check corruption (past and present) appears to be toothless. Regardless of propaganda from State House, the agenda of Jubilee government is to steal from Kenyans because those in charge know that they are responsible to nobody but themselves.

The Report by the Auditor General is just the latest evidence in a series of multiple exposures which could have ignited any responsible government to take immediate action by rounding up all suspects, hand-cuffing them, dumping them in custody, trying them in a Court of law and either jailing them for life or hanging them with a guitar wire at Uhuru Park if found guilty.

In the case of Jubilee, no action can be taken against the thieves because the President of the Republic is not just a documented thief of public resources but also sanctions stealing of public funds by his officers. The best action the President is known to take in the face of corruption is to send his corrupt officials on a brief luxurious vacation (aka stepping aside) before they are reinstated after being given a new “clean bill of health” to continue looting the economy.

Take it or leave it: The “House of Mumbi” is leading Kenya astray and the faster Kenyans begun a serious re-thinking of how to recover their country, the more it will be possible to reconstruct the country. For now, thieves and robbers are in charge at State House, Central Bank, Treasury, Parliament, Kenya Revenue Authority, Office of President, Office of Vice President, Judiciary and any key government institution imaginable. It is time for a democratic socialist revolution to abolish the rotten capitalist system of government the thieves have been using to steal from Kenyans since the days of Mzee Jomo Kenyatta as Kenyans suffer in their millions.

The Kenya Red Alliance (KRA) is ready to lead this revolution. Let us all join hands under the wise leadership of KRA to rid the country of the blood-sucking Mafia cartels that have been milking the country dry as millions of Kenyans die of starvation, treatable diseases and a host of preventable causes.

Challenging Nancy Mungai’s Views on Swedish TV on Obama’s Visit to Kenya

nancy interviewNow that President Barack Obama’s long awaited visit to Kenya is effectively part of history, it is perhaps time to tackle some of the side issues that surrounded his visit.  Just hours before Obama landed in Kenya, Nancy Mungai, a Kenya-Stockholmer, suddenly surfaced on Swedish national TV 1 to present a plethora of lop-sided views about the political and economic situation in Kenya.

Nancy, who conveniently positioned herself as an “Advisor” of Swedish companies seeking to invest in Kenya, did not just present a distorted picture of Kenya but also veered haphazardly into a ludicrous pontification on the impact of Obama’s visit to Kenya. In view of the incongruent nature of Nancy’s views, and given the warped perception these views might impinge on ignorant layers of the national white Swedish population who may have bought her analysis, it is paramount that the record be set straight.

According to Nancy, Kenya is doing well economically through investment in IT and other services. Nancy told viewers that Kenya’s economic boom has led to a rise in the middle class. She advised that the US can help boost Kenya’s economy by investing more in trade and industry.

Unfortunately, in her IT-driven Kenya’s economic growth theory, Nancy did not give any statistics to support her assertion. In retrospect, Nancy may have been alluding to the propagandistic World Bank Group’s economic analysis update (April 2015) which placed Kenya’s economic growth at 5.4% in 2014. From a scientific stand-point, a country’s economic growth is tied to its GDP growth per capita, inflation rate, employment indices and living standards. The World Bank group’s analysis of Kenya’s growth rate was propagandistic because it failed to provide data on key indicators of the very economic growth it was referring to.

External debt
The Kenyan economy cannot be said to have grown when the reality on the ground indictates a steady decline in living standards of huge sections of the population. Currently, 13 million able-bodied Kenyans are out of work while every year, half a million unemployed youths pour into the job market from various learning institutions. There is no indication that the country’s GDP per capita is growing. Evidence on the ground indicates that the rate of inflation is so high that millions of Kenyans are unable to afford a square meal.

Instead of creating jobs, the government has actually been retrenching workers while civil servants are constantly on strike or threatening strike actions because of starvation wages. How can the economy be growing when the Uhuru regime continues to maintain a ban on Civil servant employment that was instituted by former dictator Daniel arap Moi? If the economy is growing, why is the government complaining about the national wage bill?

When a country’s economy is on the rise, its external debt should be on the decline. In the case of Kenya, the country’s external debt increased from Ksh 1.326 trillion in April 2015 to Ksh 1.381 trillion in May 2015 (Central Bank statistics). At the national level, the implication is that the average Kenyan is sliding deeper into debt and poverty. Currently, 43% of Kenya’s GDP (almost half) goes into servicing the country’s external debt. According to a modest World Bank’s analysis (April 2015), talk about Kenya’s economic growth could be immature because “External demand for exports is also sluggish and low growth of production for exports is widening the current account deficit. Also, the share of the manufacturing sector to GDP has remained stagnant in recent years, with low overall productivity and large productivity differences in firms across subsectors due to lack of competition”. With rising poverty, high unemployment, declining living standards, a growing external debt and a big chunk of the country’s GDP being swallowed by external debt serving, where did Nancy Mungai peg her economic growth theory?

A Middle class sliding into underclass
It is fashionable to talk about a “rising middle class” in Kenya. What usually goes missing during such analysis is the corresponding rise in the rural and urban underclass unable to fend for itself after the crisis of capitalism reduced large swaths of the population to unofficial beggars. On the contrary, with stagnant wages occasioned by a declining economy and a freeze on employment by the government, the so called middle class in Kenya is basically struggling to prevent itself from sliding into underclass by constantly trying to “go into business” with serious capital constraints. Nancy’s view that the Kenyan middle class is on the rise is pure fiction and based on a mantra created by Jubilee propagandists to prop up a regime in crisis.

In her attempt to theorize on the issue of terrorism, Nancy said that the issue of terror is global and not just a Kenyan problem. She actually hoped that Obama would assist in fighting terrorism. It is unfortunate that at the level of “Advisor” of Swedish companies seeking to invest in Kenya, Nancy does not understand that the Shabbab terror activities in Kenya are linked to the government’s unsolicited and aggressive war in Somalia. Kenya does not need Obama to help fight terrorism across the country. What the government needs to do is to withdraw KDF forces from Somalia, stop ethnic profiling of Kenyans of Somali origin and accord every Kenyan all rights as citizens of the Republic.

Nancy: An extension of Jubilee propaganda machine
Instead of rendering a balanced analysis of the Kenyan situation and painting the correct picture of the Jubilee government, Nancy emerged more as a well-oiled Jubilee mouth-piece than an impartial commentator on Kenyan politics. What is more?

She totally ignored commenting on: rampant corruption of the Jubilee government; massive tribalism on the appointment of public servants; failure by the Jubilee government to honor its most basic election promises; violation of the Constitution by the government; frustration of devolution; political assassinations especially of Muslim clerics; failure of the Jubilee government to create jobs for the youth; human rights violations while she also failed to recognize Uhuru Kenyatta’s inability to govern. Nancy even failed to point out the issue of insecurity across the country and dramatic rise in crime rate by idle youths after promises of jobs failed to materialize. In fact, Johan, a Swedish journalist based in Nairobi, appeared to have been more knowledgeable about Kenya than Nancy.

After being accorded a significant opportunity by a Swedish mainstream media outlet to throw light ahead of Obama’s visit to Kenya, and as a Kenyan in diaspora, it is regrettable that Nancy wasted the grand opportunity. Instead of using it to educate the Swedish population about the real situation in Kenya, she converted herself into an extension of the vicious Jubilee propaganda machine desperately trying to paint Uhuru Kenyatta’s regime as the best regime Kenya has ever had when evidence shows that Jubilee is not just a total flop but a living catastrophe for the Kenyan people after this government came to power through a rigged election.

New Cargo Freight Service from Stockholm to Kenya Launched

MIRACLE FREIGHT SERVICES

Seeking to change the game through reliability, affordable costs and door to door picking oc cargo across Sweden.

In Scandinavia, cargo transport is one of the most sought after services by members of the Kenyan community. In response to this demand, a new cargo transportation service has been set up by a group of Kenyans.

The “Miracle Freight Services” is a brand new venture that will be transporting cargo to Kenya quarterly. The fist consignment leaves Stockholm during the last week of September and anybody interested in the service is free to contact the Freight Company for further details.

In a nut-shell, Miracle Freight Services collects your cargo from your door-step at a small fee depending on distance. A plasma TV costs 500kr, a “flytt karting” 400kr (300kr if more than 3) while other items not within the “flytt karting” bracket will have a price tag after inspection. Basically, anything legal can be transported. Pricing is pretty negotiable.

Miracle Freight Services operates throughout Sweden and cargo is delivered anywhere in Kenya. Miracle Freight’s business model is based on cheap pricing while ensuring collection and safe delivery of cargo to their destinations. The Freight will be leaving Sweden every three months and regularity is a key pillar of the Miracle Freight business strategy.

Miracle Freight Services is seeking to instill seriousness and reliability in the Kenya-Scandinavia cargo business, a niche that is still at its nascent stages. From a cursory research, it is obvious that almost every Kenyan has a cargo to send home on a regular basis. However, a frustrating constraint has been high cargo transportation costs and “busy bodies” in the industry who hype Kenyans about prospects of cheap and reliable cargo transport before disappearing into thin air after one or two cargo drops.

Miracle Freight Services is seeking to change the game to give customers what they deserve. The Company has full time personnel who will be working round the clock to ensure quality services for all clients.

For further information, get in touch with the company as soon as possible. With the next cargo freight leaving for Kenya in September, there is no time to waste. Pack your goods and get in touch to ensure that your cargo catches the September consignment. Miracle Freight Services is at your service and space is the limit! For enquiries, contact Mrs Pamela Omiti at Tel: 0720376723

Vote of Thanks from Joshua Oyugi

Mr. Joshua Oyugi, a Kenyan who lost his mother in Kenya recently, has thanked friends, well-wishers and sympathizers who condoled with him following the passing of her mom in Kenya. It was a very tragic moment for Mr. Oyugi and family who had to start a new journey of coping with the unexpected loss of a mother at short notice.

Mr. Oyugi is now back in Uppsala after attending her mother’s funeral. He hoped that Kenyans and all good hearted people will continue showing solidarity and comfort with the bereaved.

NB: This vote of thanks should have gone out earlier but delayed due to unavoidable circumstances beyond immediate control. KSB apologizes for any inconveniences.

Jubilee Government’s ‘Iron Lady’ Anne Waiguru is Not Corruption-Free After All

Ann Waiguru: Corrupt to the bone

Ann Waiguru: Corrupt to the bone

Whenever the Jubilee Government led by President Uhuru Kenyatta is rocked by a financial scandal, his supporters claim no money has been lost. Deputy President William Ruto is often the loudest, especially once the matter is picked up by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga. He would then politicize and shift its focus onto Raila, whom he sees as the enemy out to ‘derail’ or ‘destroy’ the ‘development agenda’ of the Jubilee Government. Ruto often goes gaga over how they are on track with development matters compared to Raila.

Of particular interest is Ruto’s latest reaction after Raila mentioned that Cabinet Secretary for Devolution and Planning Anne Waiguru, be suspended over the latest scandal concerning questionable payments amounting to over Sh665 million, to suppliers and consultants since November 2014, through the National Youth Service (NYS). However, it was the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) that raised the red flag on the payments, and not Raila. Ruto is very good at running away from such reality and time and again would use public platforms to hit back on Raila, who as a key Opposition leader, has the right to criticize the Jubilee government.

Why did Waiguru write to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations more than one month after she found out that there were attempts to steal Sh826 million from NYS? According to the Sunday Nation newspaper of June 21st, the NYS Deputy Director Adan Gedow Harakhe, tried to correct the situation by calling on the Integrated Financial Management Information Systems (IFMIS) Director Jerome Ocheing’, to delete the irregular payments. These are the questions Ruto should be asking, instead of barking at Raila.

Ironically, the Sunday Nation revealed that youths deployed to work for the NYS project in Kibera have not been paid for the past three months. “The more than 3,000 youth who are working for the project are supposed to earn Sh470 per day with Sh140 going to their saccos. Their pay is supposed to be consolidated for six days and paid on Saturday through National Bank of Kenya to their mobile money accounts.”

In April, around 675 NYS officers who were supervising the youth were withdrawn by the government, while the much-hyped road which was being constructed between the Kibera DC’s office and Highrise Estate has not been completed nine months after its construction began, because of lack of materials. Further, the posho mills promised by Uhuru Kenyatta for the Kibera youth which would sell maize flour at a subsidized cost of Sh60 per 2kg, are not working. The wi-fi project meant to provide free Internet access to Kibera residents has not been implemented either. The Sunday Nation noted that just before the national budget was read in June 2015, Devolution Principal Secretary Peter Mangiti had asked the Treasury to release Sh162 million for the Kenya Youth Empowerment Program, yet the program is fully funded by the World Bank to the tune of Sh1.4 billion.

Iron Lady Anne Waiguru should step aside to pave way for a thorough forensic audit of her ministry, since she is a reflection of the kleptocratic Jubilee government. While at it, congratulations to the Kenya national women’s volleyball team on winning the Women’s Africa Nations Volleyball championship for the ninth time on June 20, 2015. Sadly, the Jubilee government did not throw them a celebratory party after the match against Algeria, and many of them had to rush to fetch matatus to retreat to their slums, instead of being offered better means of transportation to appreciate their efforts. That is how much Uhuru’s Government values the youth.

Truth be told, Uhuru government is not only ravaging Kenya through mismanagement and corruption. The rotten Jubilee government is destroying the country. After coming to power through a rigged election, the looting agenda of top government officials under the supervision of President Uhuru Kenyatta should not surprise Kenyans. What should be of concern is what it will take to rectify the mess. Under the current circumstances, the country is sinking into a deep abyss.

Reader Request: Ann Kioko Urges Critics to Stop Focusing on Her Environment

ANN KIOKOAnn Kioko, the Kenyan lady who has offered to compete with Mali Ya Obama to capture the attention of the 27 year old Lawyer Kiprono, has urged critics to focus on her and not her environment. Kiprono has been in the news for going public with a request to ask President omaba for Mali-Ya Obama when the US President visits next month. In a letter circulated to the media, Ann said that she was ready for Kiprono. She wrote:

I write this letter with a lot of expectations and prayers for a positive response. It has been long since I visited my Facebook account, I have been up and down with life hassles. I live in a simple house in the outskirts of Nairobi and have to wake up very early to go to work to avoid traffic jam, but I am not always lucky in the evenings.

Of late I think Kenyans have really grown rich, they have bought so many cars, I am yet to though. So today I decided to spare a little airtime for bundles and accessed Facebook only to find this headline that you have offered all those herds of livestock to Malia.

If I were in Nigeria, I would use Tufyakwa or Chineke (Oh my God), because I am not amused at all. Since I saw you going to court to urge the Chief Justice to swear in Deputy President , Hon. Ruto as president sometimes ago, I got interested in you!

I have always been fascinated in you since then and have followed you on twitter. I also friended you on Facebook but you have not accepted my friend request yet. All the same I took time to go through your pictures, I got smitten by this picture you have some good looking, seemingly designer lipstick on your lips. I have been looking for that shade to no avail.  The more the reason I am very unhappy that all that expertise is going to Malia.

I am a 27 year old (turned 27 on 2nd May) beautiful single Kamba lady but have been raised in Nyahururu. I am well educated and cultured, with an almost same complexion as Malia and a beautiful smile.

One of my bffs is Kalenjin and has taught me how to prepare Mursik and cook brown Ugali. I have also interacted with Lawyers in my job , they are very nice people. In my village in Weru, Nyandarua District, we have a big shamba where all the livestock can be grazed sufficiently. We are located near Lake Ol poloisat, so they will never lack in water and just a few meters down, there’s a cattle dip. Look, they will be very well taken care of.

Actually we could start some business of exporting milk to other counties, I am a very hardworking woman and within no time we will build our own white house. Kiprono, please recall the offer to President Obama and consider my application, we can explain to him when he comes to Kenya.

With love,
Ann Kioko.

Uhuru Recommends Another Kikuyu for Central Bank Governor’s Post

Clockwise: Mr. Duncan Ndegwa: May 1967 - December 1982; Mr. Philip Ndegwa December 1982 - January 1988; Mr. Nahashon Nyagah April 2001 - March 2003; Prof. Njuguna Ndung'u March 2007 - March 2015.

Clockwise: Mr. Duncan Ndegwa: May 1967 – December 1982; Mr. Philip Ndegwa December 1982 – January 1988; Prof Njuguna Ndung’u March 2007 – March 2015; Mr. Nahashon Nyagah April 2001 – March 2003;

After the departure of former Central Bank Governor Professor Njuguna Ndungu (a Kikuyu) last month,  Uhuru Kenyatta may not have surprised Kenyans with his new choice of governor – another Kikuyu. He has forwarded to Parliament the name of Dr. Patrick Ngugi Njoroge, an IMF advisor, as the proposed next Governor of The Central Bank.

The move is yet another clear indication that the President is determined to continue perpetuating the “House of Mumbi doctrine” in government appointments which dictates that in any key government institution that matter in the wielding of power, the policy must remain “Kikuyu come Kikuyu go”.

If the proposal is approved by Parliament, Njoroge is likely to continue with the corrupt policies of Ndungu and, by extension, protect and cover up his predecessor’s economic crimes at the Central Bank of Kenya. These crimes have been well documented in Reports gathering dust on the shelves.

For Uhuru, there is no one in Kenya outside the Kikuyu community who can run the Central Bank. The president continues to maintain this position despite having campaigned on a platform of fighting tribalism. That was before the very Kikuyu ruling class that was running the government under Mwai Kibaki rigged elections in 2013 to install Uhuru as President.

Most likely, the appointment will add even more anger within members of the 41 tribes who continue to put up with political marginalization, corruption in government and looting of the economy following one election rigging after another.

The lamentable aspect of this latest move by Uhuru is that even after having entered into a Coalition government with URP headed by ICC suspect William Ruto, the President does not think that there is a Kalenjin fit enough to run the Central Bank. Despite a 50-50 power sharing deal between Ruto’s URP and Uhuru’s TNA, the Kalenjin have been short-changed since day one. In fact, the best Uhuru could have done to hood-wink the Kalenjin and to reduce URP grumbles could have been to appoint a Kalenjin to head the Bank following the departure of the scandal ridden Professor Ndungu.

Kalenjins looking back in Nostalgia
For now, the Kalenjin will have to continue playing the role of political spectators on the sidelines and may be, learn one key lesson from the bitter experience – that the Kikuyu ruling class will never share real power with members of any other ethnic ruling class even after joint campaigns, joint election rigging and pompous signing of political deals.

Kalenjins can only look back with nostalgia at the days when the Central Bank was being looted under the governorship of Eric Kotut, a Kalenjin (1988-1993) before Micah Cheserem, another Kalenjin, took over (1993-2001) to perpetuate “eating” by the “Kabarak Syndicate”. These were the good days when the Kalenjins were “eating” under former dictator Daniel arap Moi’s tutelage but as soon as the Kikuyu returned after rigging two consecutive elections in 2007 and 2013, the Kikuyu ruling class is back on the “eating table” as millions of starving Kikuyus cheer them from the rural villages and city slums.

In terms of  “eating”, the Central Bank is “the mouth” through which Kenya’s resources enter the “national digestive system”. By installing a Kikuyu at the gate of the Bank, Uhuru Kenyatta and the cackle of blood-thirsty hyenas surrounding the high table, can be sure that their pot-belies will not be losing weight even with an impending change of guard at the Central Bank.

The only known alternative to tribalism (in government or society) is class politics. However, the capitalist ruling class cannot take up this alternative because this thieving class of wealth grabbers uses tribalism to divide the oppressed classes in society in order to rule them.

Although it is the Kikuyu ruling class wielding real power with Uhuru as the figure head, the poor Kikuyu worker or pauper has been made to believe (through organized media propaganda) that every Kikuyu is in power and that Kenya belongs to the Kikuyu. This is the twisted logic that informs the impending appointment of another Kikuyu to head the Central Bank.

Reasons Why Kenyans Should Be Mourning on Madaraka Day

Fifty two years after

Fifty two years after “self rule” our engineers cannot manufacture a needle

Today, 1st June, Kenyans are supposed to be celebrating Madaraka day, the day when Kenya attained “self-rule” in 1963 ahead of 12th December (Jamhuri day) when the country attained “full independence” from British colonialists. However, for Kenyans who have keenly been watching the country being ravaged by different ethnic ruling classes in the last 52 years, the mention of a “celebration” (be it Madaraka or Jamhuri) can be repugnant.

Truly, conscious Kenyans have every reason to suffer psychological set-backs on Madaraka day, a period when the Nation ought to be in a somber and not a celebratory mood. This is because the country is bleeding and blood is being sucked by well-known political vampires. On the day when the country attained “self-rule”, the following is a summary of reasons why 40 million Kenyans ought to be shedding tears and not popping Champaign.

Perpetual landlessness
Any Kenyan who understands the country’s history knows that the sole reason why the struggle for independence was ignited was because the British colonialists had grabbed land in Kenya and converted citizens into slaves to work on plantations. Fifty two years after self-rule, more than 15 million Kenyans are landless. At the same time, siblings of British colonial masters hold vast pieces of land still called “the white highlands” while land grabbing by members of the thieving ruling class reached “epidemic proportions” decades ago. It is an open secret that great grand-children of British colonialists own vast game reserves together with Five Star hotels erected “deep inside the jungle” from where they control the tourist industry without taxation – thanks to high level corruption! With the prospect of remaining landless from birth to death, millions of Kenyans are more on the side of “self-damnation” than “self-rule” and this is one big reason why Madaraka day should be welcomed with lugubrious faces.

Record 10 million Kenyans unemployed
Kenya has a Labour force of approximately 20 million (2009). At the arrival of the 52nd Madaraka day, more than 10 million able-bodied Kenyans are out of work with millions of frustrated youths permanently languishing in absolute poverty. The ravaged and jobless youths have witnessed every promise of “half a million jobs per year” at every electioneering period evaporate to be replaced with fresh but re-packaged promised of the “Kazi kwa Vijana” type. For these youths, whose lives are constantly being wasted before their very eyes, crime has become a way of life. Under the circumstances, the whole idea of celebrating Madaraka day is anathema especially for those who have understood that the current rotten political system presided over by political vultures is a system that only works for the wealthy thieves and their allies.

Homelessness
Kenya has a population of 42 million out of which 8 million have nowhere they call “home”. Another 6 million live in dilapidated structures both in the rural and urban areas. In the cities, millions of Kenyans have been condemned to life in the slums because the “government” has been unable to invest in housing across the country due to misplaced priorities. For the millions of homeless Kenyans, celebrating Madaraka could just as well go missing on the menu.

Tribalism in government
When Kenya attained “self-rule” on 1st June 1963, the assumption was that the “divide and rule” tactic employed by British colonialists would be replaced by a new concept of “National unity”. Fifty two years after “self-rule”, the Jomo Kenyatta, arap Moi, Mwai Kibaki and Uhuru Kenyatta’s misrule of the country have cumulatively succeeded in dividing Kenyans along ethnic lines more than the British. Today, very few Kenyans believe that “National unity” is attainable under the current circumstances because the ideological bankruptcy of existing political parties has welded them to both tribalism and nepotism. The consequence is that top positions in every new government that comes to power is dominated by members of the President’s ethnic group. Fifty two years after “self-rule”, Kenya could be heading for civil war instead of greater civilization because the level of tribalism in government has risen to a proportion that has become unacceptable to the marginalized groups. Should Kenyans be celebrating or preparing to get even?

Election rigging
Jomo Kenyatta ruled Kenya for 15 years before former Dictator Moi took over and ran down the country with a corrupt and murderous clique for 24 years. After a New Constitution was constructed to limit Presidential term to 10 years, Kenyans woke up in 2007 to a new style of election rigging by the Kikuyu ruling class seeking to protect vested political interests and stolen wealth. The country bled and 1,500 lives were lost. In 2013, election rigging was further extended to enable the Kikuyu ruling class to seize power and maintain the “status quo”. Fifty two years after “self-rule”, and even with the promulgation of a New Constitution, the thieving ruling class is incapable of conducting a free and fair election so what is it that Kenyans are celebrating under the banner of “self-rule”?

Rampant corruption
In every democratic country, the appreciation of the rulers by the ruled is seldom pegged on the level at which the “National cake” is divided and accessed among the population. Kenya is in a very precarious situation because from experience, it is obvious that the capitalist ruling class will never be able to fight corruption among its members. The problem is that as the National cake continues to be stolen and eaten in private repeatedly by a blood-sucking ruling class in the face of mass starvation, poverty and suffering of the population, the idea of revolution is slowly beginning to take shape in the minds of the exploited majority.

Corruption in past and present governments has put Kenya in an “explosive mode” and the only reason why a revolution has not broken out (aka Kenyan spring) is because there is still no revolutionary Movement or Party to explain what is to be done and to lead the revolution from within. Kenyans should therefore, not be celebrating but contemplating a “revolutionary solution” that will send the capitalist ruling class packing for good. Corruption is part of the capitalist system and blood suckers running the system will never end corruption. This explains why from Jomo to Moi, Kibaki to Uhuru, corruption is still with us. It is time to enter into deep mourning and any Kenyan celebrating Madaraka day under the current state of affairs is either benefiting from the system, naïve or confused.

Terrorism and political assassinations
If Kenyans were to celebrate on June 1st, it should be because millions are now conscious enough to understand that the country is fighting a proxy war “against terrorism” in Somalia with the United States stocking the fires from behind. In this useless war, the country has had to pay heavily on two fronts – massacres by Al Shabbab and political assassinations by the government. Al Shabbab has attacked us, not once or twice but as a matter of routine. Baragoi (40 policemen dead and bodies left to rot in the valleys), Westgate (67 dead), Mpeketoni (65 dead), Kwale (60 dead), Garissa University (148 dead) among other insecurity related deaths especially in Rift Valley and North Eastern provinces.

Fifty two years after “self-rule”, Kenyans cannot defend themselves against a rag tag militia called Al Shabbab. Instead of training idle unemployed youths in the counties and arming them to keep Al Shabbab at bay, the government has consistently been using the excuse of terrorism to clandestinely implement an Israeli-American agenda of using political assassination to eliminate Islamic clerics as a way of curbing Islamic fundamentalism in Kenya. Has any Kenyan ever wondered why no single Commission has ever been set up to investigate the more than 20 assassinations in Mombasa alone? Should Kenyans be celebrating or asking serious questions?

Foreign control of national economy
To establish who is in control of a country’s economy, one has to examine the ownership of both companies active in the country’s Stock Exchange and top Banks. Total Kenya, American Tobacco, Crown Paints, Nation Media Group, Limuru Tea, Marshal East Africa, Williamson Tea, Pan African Insurance, Barclays Bank, CFC Stanbic, British American Investments, Standard Chattered Bank, Diamond Trust Bank and Kenya Airways (owned by the Dutch) are just a few names that could help underline the point at the Nairobi Stock Exchange.

The manufacturing industry, Import and Export industry, Tourism industry, Construction industry, Mining, Telecommunication, Horticulture (including Flower industry), Banking, Domestic Trade, Distribution Networks and other key industries/sectors are all on the hands of foreign companies/allies milking Kenya dry.

Fifty two years after “self-rule”, Kenya is economically being ruled by foreigners under an arrangement called neo-colonialism with profits realized ending up in western capitals. The country’s engineers cannot manufacture a needle while we import pencils from the United States. Surely, should Kenyans be celebrating or trying to manufacture our first needle? There is no single Kenyan who can effectively advice the President so former British Prime Minister, Tonny Blair, has been brought in to do the job and the President smiled happily as he shook hands with his advisor before the Media! That is where we are, 52 years after “self-rule!”

Collapsed social services
Whether it is the health care system or the education system, the language is the same. Government institutions together with social services have collapsed in Kenya making life much more difficult compared to the days of colonialism. The principle is the same – nothing works!

Fifty two years after “self-rule”, the best hospitals in Kenya include the Nairobi Hospital, Aga Khan, Mater Misericordiae, MP Shah, Bangla Wash, Chodhri Manji dispensary and a host of other health institutions, clinics, medical labs and X-Ray centers on private hands. These private health institutions are for the rich only.

Likewise, some of the best performing schools are private owned. Public transport is firmly on private hands, just like the oil industry which is controlled by mafia cartels. Even supply of basic consumer commodities such as maize and sugar are on private hands. The government has allowed illegal import of sugar to kill the sugar industry. Mitumba (second hand clothes) trade has totally liquidated the local textile industry.  In 1963, Kenya was drug free but fifty two years later, the country is one of the key drug trafficking centers in the world. Some of our politicians (who are known drug traffickers) sit in The Senate where they remain untouchables!

The politics of privatization under capitalism has destroyed the country with the government having no significant role to play in the running and management of social services. Under the circumstances, where is the “self-rule” we ought to be celebrating on Madaraka day?

Should we not be mourning?
It is true that Kenya attained self-rule but we can’t finance the National budget! The government has to ask the West for help to finance the deficit! We promulgated a new Constitution but after being starved of cash for the ruling class to eat, devolution, a key component of the Constitution, is flopping. MCAs are constantly at war in a perpetual struggle for power. County governments have become the new centers of corruption because while the Constitution is new, the system on which it rests on is rotten.

We have top engineers with PhDs at our universities but when we want to construct a bridge, a road or a railway line, we have to go to China to seek “experts”. Despite the high unemployment, we allow the Chinese to come with their manual workers who fornicate with our women to leave behind Kenyans with Chinese eyes, broken virginities and collapsed marriages. We attained self-rule but 50 years later, we have never learnt how to print our money. Should we not be mourning on Madaraka Day instead of celebrating?

Update: Kenya-Stockholm Woman Is Fine and Safe

A Kenyan woman who was reported by KSB to have allegedly been thrown out of the balcony by her Swedish hubby is fine and doing well. The woman has personally taken contact with KSB to say that she is fine. She said that she is a Swedish citizen and not “paperless”. Although KSB did not report that she is “paperless”, KSB hinted to Swedes who lure paperless women into Sweden before exposing them to domestic violence or killing them.

A friend of the woman has also communicated and said that the woman is fine while the woman’s sister has also been in touch to underline the fact that her sissie is doing well. With this update, fears by Kenyans about the woman’s well-being should now calm down.

KSB picked up the story from a Kenya-Stockholm What’s up Network where the woman’s photo was doing the rounds. Apparently, no one seemed to recognize the woman and with memories of Kavinga still alive, concerns were raised by the community that KSB ought to make an appeal. Luckily, all is well that ends well.

Kenyan Woman Allegedly Thrown Out of Balcony by Raging White Swedish Hubby

A Kenyan woman was allegedly thrown out of her apartment block through the balcony by her Swedish hubby following a domestic tiff which turned ugly. The woman’s photo is doing the rounds on “Whatsup” although very little details are springing out. So far. It is not known whether the woman survived the balcony cast-out or whether she was injured and currently admitted in a hospital.

According to a KSB source, the woman may have been thrown out from the second or third floor apartment block after what neighbors said, was “loud noise” of people quarreling in the apartment. A source told KSB that the woman hails from Kisumu city in Nyanza province. It is not clear whether the woman’s immediate relatives are aware about her tragedy.

Kenya-Stockholmers on KSB’s Whatsup Network are unable to recognize the woman and the only hope now is that someone will recognize the nameless woman from the photo and probably alert her relatives or friends to follow up the matter. In case the woman survived, she may be in a comma while in case she died, she may be buried secretly after 30 days if the body is not claimed. KSB appeals to anybody who may recognize the woman to raise the alarm with friends or relatives. In case the woman is fine and reading this, please, get in touch with KSB.

A Kenyan told KSB that she believes she saw a woman who resembles the Whatsup photo at Danderyd hospital yesterday afternoon and that she did not appear to be in critical condition. The witness said that the woman still had her braided hair on the photo. The witness added that at the time she saw the woman, she had not seen the Whatsup photo and only came to link the images after accessing her Whatsup.

It is also not known whether the woman had residence status or not. Rogue Swedish men are known to persecute their paperless women who often end up as victims of domestic violence or being killed and buried secretly.

KSB readers will remember the case of the seven month pregnant Juliet Kavinga, a Kenyan woman, who was allegedly killed by her ex-boyfriend who reportedly, did not want the baby and tried in vain to get Kavinga to abort. When the case came up in court, the suspect was freed. Police investigations revealed that Kavinga was shot in the head from the back before her body was wrapped up and thrown in Lake Melaren in Stockholm. The body surfaced a year later.
