Reader Request: Kibaki’s Kikuyunization Programme Part 3

March 31, 2011


Clinging on to power “by any means necessary” is a way of maintaing the status quo within the Mount Kenya Mafia cartel

The point with the “Kikuyunization Lists” is to show how appointments to top jobs in Government and Parastatals, are made in favor of the GEMA/Mt. Kenya Region’s people. GEMA: Gikuyu Embu and Meru Association.

The Kikuyu dominate, followed by the Meru and then the minority Embu fill a few positions. The surnames determine who is who.

The lists show that non-GEMA members are appointed to non-executive positions in case they serve as Board Members in these organizations. As we head towards 2012, we have a clear picture of Kibaki’s ethnically/tribally-biased administration which has managed to entrench Kikuyu hegemony that only draws more resentment among the remaining tribes that have largely been left out. Taxpayers come from all over the country, yet the majority of those enjoying top jobs are from one region. Kenyans should wake up!

Provincial Commissioners and Regional Commissioners:
– Regional Commissioners are PCs through the back door were created when it became hard to hide the large number of GEMA PCs. It was also part of the illegal plan to create “provinces” and beat the 25% rule in presidential elections. The majority of the GEMA RCs are concentrated in areas of special interests to the MKM or where for fear of stepping on certain sensibilities MKM are afraid of stationing GEMA and grudgingly station loyal non-GEMA. It shows they don’t fully trust their non-GEMA underlings so they undercut them with RCs, DCs and DOs. Thus PCs from non-GEMA tribes became figured heads with no power while their subordinate GEMA juniors back out orders. Provincial Commissioners (PCs) 3/8; DCs 38/71 are GEMA with most concentrated in: Rift Valley (19) , Eastern(8) , Coast & Western (3 each). All Website information on DCs, DCIOs, PPOs removed in what appears to be a concerted effort to conceal it from the public that reacts to the GEMA tilt in administration and security:

WikiLeaks Releases: Nairobi Cable No. 54:Kibaki and Co. Were Fixated on PEV, not Crisis Resolution

March 30, 2011



DE RUEHNR #0312/01 0291447
P 291447Z JAN 08


E.O. 12958: DECL: 01/29/2018

Classified By: Ambassador Ranneberger, reasons 1.4 (b,d)

Kibaki: Believed he won election

¶1. (C) Summary:  Assistant Secretary Frazer, joined by Ambassador Ranneberger, met with President Mwai Kibaki on January 5 and January 7 to seek a path towards ending the political crisis stemming from the disputed December 27 presidential election results.  She carried with her Secretary Rice’s message of an end to the violence and an agreement to dialogue among the principals in the electoral dispute for a political resolution.  In both meetings, Kibaki was fully engaged and in control of his meeting, though members of his team comfortably voiced divergent viewpoints. In the January 5 meeting, Kibaki and his team focused on the need to end the post-election violence and their fear that Kikuyus were specifically being targeted.  In the January 7 meeting, Kibaki was put on the defensive by A/S Frazer who sought an explanation and remedy for his naming of a partial cabinet on the eve of the African Union Chairman and Ghanaian President John Kufuor’s arrival to facilitate talks between he and Raila Odinga of the Orange Democratic Party (ODM).

¶2. (C) During both meetings, Kibaki said the right things in condemning violence and being open to dialogue to end the political crisis.  Furthermore, Kibaki agreed in principle to forming a government of national unity and reconstituting his cabinet following talks with Odinga.  However, his subsequent actions clearly suggested that he and his team were also moving towards consolidating power and that dialogue with Odinga was perhaps a fallback plan in whatever political strategy they had to end the political crisis.  End Summary.

¶3. (C) During A/S Frazer,s mission to Kenya from January 4-11, she met with President Kibaki twice, on January 5 and 7, to reinforce the message from Washington:  entering into dialogue with Odinga to find a political resolution to the current crisis is the way forward and an end to all violence on all sides is paramount.  A/S Frazer pointed out that Kenyans had come out en masse to vote and largely did so peacefully in a process that appeared to be clean, up to the point of vote tallying.  She emphasized that there were clearly problems with the vote count and this should be acknowledged and addressed by Kibaki in the interest of helping to heal divisions in the country.  She reminded Kibaki of the more conciliatory tone he struck during his first address to the nation, which acknowledged that Kenyans had voted across the spectrum and which was a basis from which reconciliation could be built upon.  A/S Frazer argued that political dialogue is the most viable way out of the current crisis as Kenyan courts are not considered impartial by ODM.

¶4. (C) While Kibaki repeatedly said in both meetings he was open to political dialogue, his position was quite clear:  he won the election fairly; if ODM has concerns about the outcome they should take their complaints to court because once the Electoral Commission of Kenya makes a call on elections the courts are the sole constitutional remedy (and his government would obey their ruling, Kibaki said); and ODM is to blame for post-election fighting and it is orchestrating an organized campaign of violence.

¶5. (C) Kibaki emphasized that the real problem at hand from his government’s perspective is not the controversial presidential election result but the violence that has ensued, and he said ending it was their primary focus. Kibaki pushed the point that Odinga and other ODM leaders need to come out and call for an end to the violence.

¶6. (C) Martha Karua, the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs and clearly one of the hardliners in Kibaki’s inner circle, attended the January 5 meeting (joined by then Foreign Minister Raphael Tuju, Foreign Ministry Permanent Secretary Thuita Mwangi, and Advisor Stanley Murage) during which she conceded that while some of the post-election violence may have been spontaneous, for the most part it has been pre-planned, she said. Kibaki echoed this point arguing that the youth are being paid to commit such acts.  Tuju, a Luo, contended that ODM supporters were specifically targeting the Kikuyu, whom he said have exercised a lot of restraint up to now, suggesting that they could retaliate especially in areas like Nairobi where they are a majority, as Karua pointed out.  Kibaki and his team emphasized they would not kowtow to the violence, which they consider ODM is using as “blackmail.” Mwangi recounted how he had to send a vehicle to Eldoret to rescue members of his family from the violence in that area.  He claimed the post-electoral violence had been instigated by ODM and that it would have “unleashed” such violence even if it had won the election because of its desire for “majimbo” — the idea of decentralized governance with the connotation that major ethnic groups will govern autonomously over their own regions.

¶7. (C) A/S Frazer stressed that the USG condemned all violence and promised to continue to push the issue with ODM to call an end to it.  She, however, asked Kibaki to demonstrate leadership by engaging with Raila in dialogue even in these difficult times; if former Presidents Nelson Mandela and F.W. de Klerk of South Africa could do it after years of violence, distrust, and political struggle in South Africa, surely he and Raila could do the same to move Kenya forward.  After all, they have worked together in the past and they do know each other, perhaps too well, she added. A/S Frazer noted there were failures in leadership on both sides — that Raila should reign in those committing violence and that Kibaki should come out with a statement acknowledging electoral problems.

¶8. (C) A/S Frazer asked that Kibaki and Raila issue separate statements condemning violence, acknowledging there were real problems with the elections, and agreeing to dialogue (initially a joint statement was proposed and Kibaki was unopposed to it, but Karua and Tuju nixed the idea arguing that it would give the appearance of a “co-presidency.”); the statements would help heal and normalize the country*the most immediate need*and are exclusive of the issue of how the parties will actually come to a political arrangement on governance, A/S Frazer explained.  While Kibaki expressed doubt that Raila truly wanted peace and said he was a man who spoke in “two languages” — something he saw as a significant obstacle to dialogue — he agreed to issue a statement, but never did.  However, almost immediately after the January 5 meeting, the Presidential Press Service issued a statement that said the government was open to dialogue and forming a government of national unity.

¶9. (C) On the eve of President Kufuor’s arrival in Kenya to help facilitate talks between Kibaki and Odinga, Kibaki announced on January 7 the appointment of eight key cabinet members.  A/S Frazer met with him that evening to express great disappointment and surprise at such action, particularly on the day before expected talks between ODM and PNU.  She said the cabinet appointments were preemptive, that it seemed like Kibaki was taking the issue of cabinet positions off the negotiating table and was prepared to exclude ODM from any kind of coalition government, and that the USG was seriously considering denouncing the government should Kibaki not take remedial action.  A/S Frazer also took Kibaki to task for not issuing the statement on vote tallying irregularities while noting that Odinga had honored his commitment to condemn violence and call off rallies given current political tensions.

¶10. (C) Kibaki argued that he was not preempting talks and that he only announced the partial cabinet to keep the government running — that it was only “logical” to do so, he said. Logical as it may be, the timing in naming a cabinet was bad faith, A/S Frazer told Kibaki.  In the end, Kibaki said that he was open to changing cabinet positions if this was decided during talks with ODM, along with having the talks deal with a broader range of issues such as electoral and institutional reform.  After intense negotiations with Kibaki and his team, it was agreed that Kibaki would issue a statement explaining why he appointed a cabinet when he did, clarifying that the cabinet was subject to change pending outcome of talks with ODM, and noting that nothing would be ruled out in these discussions.  Francis Muthaura, Secretary to the Cabinet, and the newly appointed Foreign Minister Wetengula fought the idea of issuing a public statement clarifying the cabinet position appointment, but Kibaki was decisive in wanting it done; the statement was issued the following day.

¶11. (C) Comment:  Kibaki and his team are fixated on the post-election violence and fail to truly own up to the fact that the flawed election results were the impetus to the crisis.  They seem almost oblivious to the vote tallying problems, treating it as a minor detail that can be brushed aside and dealt with through legal means.  Kibaki seemed reasonable and could be influenced with a well-argued point; members of his team, like Martha Karua, were clearly more hardline in their positions and do not seem truly interested in dialogue with ODM.  Distrust of ODM was very evident in statements by both Kibaki and members of his team during these conversations. While Kibaki and his team are quite dismissive of ODM protests about the problems with the elections, the fact that Kibaki is open to dialogue with Raila suggests he has not completely bought into PNU’s narrative that they won the presidential elections fair and square; there may be hope yet that Kibaki will assert leadership to pursue a political solution with ODM.  End Comment.

¶12. (U) This cable has been cleared by Assistant Secretary Frazer.

Baganda People in Crisis after Suicide of Colleague in Stockholm

March 30, 2011


Where cremation of the body will take place

Members of the Baganda community in Stockholm are in crisis after a Ugandan of Baganda origin committed suicide in Stockholm about two weeks ago. The problem is that the late Ugandan allegedly left a suicide note saying that his body should be cremated because transporting it to Uganda will only ” increase grief” among his close relatives.

The crisis has come up because according to Baganda culture, a person who commits suicide does not deserve a funeral and the Baganda Committee handling the matter is divided as to whether to continue being involved in funeral arrangements or whether they should just keep off. The late Ugandan was married to a Finnish woman who is reported to be having no problem with funeral arrangements.

According to a contact who spoke to KSB, the Baganda culture dictates that if a person commits suicide by hanging himself/herself say on a tree branch, a deep hole is dug under the tree in line with where the body hangs after which the rope is cut and the dead person’s body left on a free-fall into the hole. The body is then buried “the way it falls into the hole” and without mourning or funeral rites.

The problem with the case in Stockholm is that the late Ugandan is reported to have committed suicide by suffocating himself using a polythene bag after which the body was transported to the morgue and so the situation where a hole could be dug does not arise.

The division within the Baganda Committee is that there is a group which thinks that the stringent Baganda traditions on the treatment of a suicide victim through “non-funeral position”  should be discarded because of modernity and advancements in civilization while another wing has maintained that the Baganda traditions must be respected under the circumstances to prevent ancestral spirits from coming down to haunt those involved in decision making to disrespect Baganda traditions.

Although there appears to be no plans to transport the body to Uganda for burial, the Committee is said to be tight-lipped as to whether the Will left behind by the deceased to the effect that his body be cremated will be respected.

Tension is rising because the deceased was the Treasurer of the Executive Committee of the Baganda Association in Sweden (Ebika Committee) also at the core of funeral arrangements. In conjunction with the family, the Committee has announced that funeral arrangements for the late Ugandan will take place on April 1st at Hökarängen Church at 13.00hrs. The Church is located at Lingvägen 149 at Hökarängen Tube Station.

“We don’t know whether the cremation will take place after the Funeral service and much is a matter of wait and see”, a contact close to the Committee told KSB. The silence of the Committee as to whether or not the “funeral” means that there will be cremation has increased speculation among the Baganda people that the Committee seems to be hiding something.

Abrogation of the Constitution
A section of the Ebika Committee opposed to the involvement of the Association in the funeral arrangements say that the Committee is supposed to be protecting Baganda culture and that its involvement in the funeral arrangements is an abrogation of the Association’s constitution which compels its leadership to protect Baganda culture without fear or favour.

Another problem is that the Baganda culture does not allow for cremation of bodies and the dissenting members of the Committee say that it is unthinkable that a Committee entrusted with protecting Baganda culture could get involved in a funeral arrangement where the deceased committed suicide contrary to fundamental values of the Baganda culture.

The general view of the Baganda traditionalists is that in as much as the deceased was a respected member of the Association and community alike, “he has committed a taboo” by taking his own life and that under the circumstances, the Association ought to have excommunicated him posthumously from Baganda community instead of being involved in his funeral arrangements.

“What should have happened is that the family should have been left to conduct the funeral in peace and cremate if they wanted without dragging the Baganda Association into the matter”, a Ugandan who has also been following the case told KSB.

He said that the family should not be bogged down with the cultural complications which they may not understand but that the Baganda Association should live up to expectation because its leadership ought to understand the consequences. He added that the Baganda Association risked losing members because of its involvement in the funeral. “They will have themselves to blame if the ancestral spirits come back to revenge”, he concluded.

The late Ugandan was a respected member of the Baganda community and is said to have been happily married with a loving wife, wonderful children and a well-paying job which guaranteed him economic stability.

Many Ugandans cannot therefore understand why their brother decided to take his life although a Ugandan agent who obtained a leak of the Will told KSB that the late wrote that he took his life because of problems related to huge debts he could not re-pay and other personal problems. “It was a very long Will which was later seized by the Association”, he said without further elaboration.
