Uhuru Kenyatta Cannot Successfully Fight Corruption In Kenya

CORRUPT WAIGURUI often get a chill down my spine whenever I hear Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto repeat their now boring and tired rhetoric: “The Jubilee Government will crack the whip on corruption.” Take a look at Ruto’s past corruption allegations and Uhuru’s plush life, courtesy of his mom Mama Ngina’s and dad, Jomo Kenyatta’s alleged looting of public coffers, land grabbing, and massive killing of elephants for illegal ivory trade. Mama Ngina is listed online as the third richest woman in Africa worth $1 billion, with her family owning “Kenya’s largest dairy company Brookside Dairies, media company Mediamax, Heritage Hotels, Commercial Bank of Africa and hundreds of thousands of prime Kenyan land.”

Given the above background, Uhuru Kenyatta does not have the political will to fight corruption since his enormous wealth is based on it. Three foreign commissioners who were among Kenyan publishers of the Truth Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC) report in May 2013, mentioned in a statement that the Office of the President had pressured them to delete paragraphs from their final report which documented witness accounts of irregular land distribution by Uhuru’s father, first president Jomo Kenyatta, to his family, cronies and members of his Kikuyu ethnic group.

Some of the deleted paragraphs revealed Kenyatta had given his son “a large tract of government land which was, apparently, acquired without official approval and without compliance with legal procedures as a wedding gift in 1976.” Further, Kenyatta “unlawfully alienated to himself 250 acres of trust land on the coast that was supposed to be held by the government in trust for the people. Irregularly, President Kenyatta took all of Tiwi and Diani trust lands at the expense of local people who immediately became ‘squatters’ on the land and were subsequently evicted, rendering them landless and poor.”

With such allegations, Uhuru can never implement the TJRC report which directly implicates his family members and threatens his wealth, since it recommends repossession of all illegally acquired public land. It is also important to note that in 2013, the Jubilee-dominated National Assembly deleted a section in the TJRC Act of 2008, which had earlier prohibited MPs from altering the report, thus enabling political manipulation of its findings and recommendations.

Roots of corruption in public sector
Confusion reigns in Jubilee as each member shouts loud in defense of the government’s useless record against corruption. When you see Senator Kithure Kindiki, a distinguished professor of law kneeling down among Jubilee political thugs and praying that the International Criminal Court (ICC) should set free William Ruto, then you know Kenyan academics become stupid when they get elected as politicians. Another light-weight Jubilee debater is nominated Senator Beatrice Elachi, whose naïve take on corruption is just pathetic.

Corruption in the public service is traced back to the Ndegwa Commission, authorized by Jomo Kenyatta in 1970, and headed by then-governor of the Central Bank of Kenya Duncan Ndegwa, to investigate the appropriate structure and remuneration of the public service. A key recommendation of the Commission’s 1971 report was that public servants would be allowed to own private property and run businesses. However, it ran against the global trend that does not allow them to engage in private enterprise since “by owning private property or engaging in business, a public servant is likely to abuse his public position” (Odhiambo-Mbai, 2003, p. 121, in the African Journal of Political Science). Njonjo Kihuria avers that: “In fact, some of the richest people in this country were either cabinet ministers, permanent secretaries, provincial commissioners, districts commissioners, district officers and parastatal chiefs, because they used their offices to privatise public wealth.” (The Star Newspaper, November 2, 2015)

The public-private nexus
Sebastian Gatimu, a researcher at the Institute for Security Studies, recently published a comprehensive article titled: ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Corruption’, which outlines the nexus between the public and private sector, in the perpetuation of corruption. “Kenya’s private sector has been listed among the world’s most corrupt. International audit firm Ernst & Young reported that one in every three Kenyan companies surveyed had paid bribes to win contracts. The survey, which is conducted in 59 countries, ranks Kenya behind Egypt, Nigeria and Namibia as economies where private sector corruption is most pervasive and tender award processes most distorted,” wrote Gatimu.

Meanwhile, an article in the Business Daily newspaper on November 9, 2015 titled: ‘Succession Wars Lift Lid on the wealth of Kenyatta Era Oligarchs’, mentioned that a Mr. Kathumba who was Jomo Kenyatta’s cook while he was prisoner in Kapenguria prison before independence, left a “50-acre prime land in Embakasi, next to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi estimated to be worth Sh3.5 billion.” It is only in Kenya where a mere cook can be a real billionaire, and not in Zimbabwean dollars.

The Standard newspaper has also run a piece titled: ‘Corrupt Kenyan Leaders to Face US Sanctions’ which states: “President Barack Obama’s government has warned Kenya’s leaders linked to corruption that they risked facing sanctions believed to include travel bans.” Obama has simply walked the talk he gave during his July 2015 trip in Kenya. Whereas Jubilee sycophants claim the West means nothing to them, and they do not care about American sanctions, they are internally bitter that Uhuru Kenyatta has engaged the former British prime minister, Tony Blair, as his chief adviser. However, they forget that Uhuru’s father had sucked up to the white folks and even sired a son, Peter Magana Kenyatta, by an English woman named Edna Clarke.

Uhuru belongs to the thoroughbred class: far from his die-hard peasant followers, and has married a half German, half Kikuyu woman. It is documented that Jomo Kenyatta was against the Mau Mau, who were Kikuyu freedom fighters whose large tracts of land had been grabbed by white colonialists. A report by journalist John Kamau indicated that Jomo Kenyatta had planned to deport hundreds of Kikuyus to the tsetse-fly infested Mpanda Settlement Scheme in Rukwa region of Tanzania, just 25 days after he had become prime minister in 1963. See

It is pointless to remain academic about Kenya’s corruption because available documents indicate its pervasiveness, yet the political class fuels it for personal gain. All the legal instruments are in place, yet Jubilee keeps blaming Opposition leader Raila Amolo Odinga, for their inept strategies in fighting corruption. Uhuru and Ruto are “political sons” of former Dictator Daniel arap Moi, whose 24-year plunder of Kenya’s economy is a case study of how NOT to be a leader. Further, in 2002, then-presidential candidate and now former president Kibaki had promised to stem corruption, but his ten-year record beat that of Moi. Uhuru Kenyatta, the selfie, PR president, was in the beginning quite vocal about fighting corruption and even created a web portal to directly engage Kenyans, yet he has hit a dead end in the process. His personal anti-corruption web portal never took off.

Although Gatimu recommends that: “To end corruption, African governments must urgently re-evaluate the role of public and private sector and come up with stringent regulations to curb the menace” all the ethical provisions enacted to curb corruption during Kibaki’s tenure in office, currently mean nothing for Uhuru’s administration. In 2013, five out of the 18 Cabinet Secretaries (CSs) nominated by Uhuru and William Ruto and vetted by the National Assembly, were suspended in march 2015. Suspended CS Davis Chirchir, a Ruto ally linked to the Chicken-gate Scandal, has been vetted once again and cleared of all corruption allegations, yet the public money reportedly lost under his watch has not been accounted for. In conclusion, Uhuru and Ruto have no moral grounds to fight against corruption, since they personally continue to gain from it.

Confrontation Between Kenyan Lady and Racist Finnish Woman in the Streets of Finland

You Fu@king African Woman: Our Country is Like this Because You Are Black!

racist finnish woman

A Kenyan female resident of Espoo city in Finland, was on Friday morning on October 23, 2015, confronted by an unknown Finnish woman as she was on her way to the Leppävaara library to study for her examinations. The strange woman drove towards her as she stood on a pedestrian crossing around the Sello shopping center.

“A woman drove towards me and motioned with her hand for something. At first I thought that she was trying to tell me something. I thought that she was in trouble and needed help, or that she was trying to run over me. That is why I took up the license plate number, just in case”, said the Kenyan woman.

She then followed the car which had come to a halt close to the Leppävaara Health Centre. “I went to her and I asked what was going on. She said that I did not have to stand at the crosswalk. I explained to her that when the light is red, I have to pause as required for by law, until the lights change.”

After this, the Finnish woman began shouting at the Kenyan woman. “She was not at all sorry for what had happened, so I decided to videotape her. I shot directly at her. I was surprised to find that it did not bother her at all and that she wanted to be heard and that she knew exactly what she was doing.”

“You have zero” “I am a Finnish woman, you are fucking African woman. You do not mean anything, and you’re a zero. In my eyes you’re nothing. Do you know what is happening in our country? Why does everyone come to rape our country? We are in trouble because of the black people, it is the truth. Be prepared, because this country will become very racist”, warned the woman.

She said that she was not previously a racist, but now she is becoming like that. “No respect, no nothing. Try to live as people; do not use any social protection in order”, roared the Finnish woman.

In the meantime, the Kenyan woman mentioned that she is a practical nurse by profession and also asked why she was attacking her. “Why? Because you are black”, answered the Finnish woman.

Not the first time

The Kenyan woman says she has been in shock since the racist attack.

“The woman was completely unknown to me. I was scared, and I could not do anything else than to go to the police station to report, and to show the video to my friends. I did not cry, because this woman does not really know me. She saw me as someone who came to Finland to benefit from social security. She did not know that I have studied as a practical nurse”, the woman says. The Kenyan woman tells us that this was not the first time she encountered racism in Finland.

“It is painful to be treated like this. There are many ways to educate and help people from different cultural backgrounds to understand that we are all equal human beings. We have the right to speak, to be heard and to work, regardless of skin color.

She says that many Finns do not understand how hard it is to get a job, if one cannot speak the language. “In Finland, there are many skilled immigrants, but due to the language barrier, they either do not find work at all, or are working where limited skills in the Finnish language does not matter. It would indeed be a great help if the Finns would provide support for immigrants in their language studies. The anger comes at a cost.”

According to her, the evil caused by the energy of hate sometimes leads to action, as she got from Friday’s experience. “There are a lot of people who are dependent on social security, yes. Are they just foreigners? No. Finland has a lot of people who have lost their jobs and struggle to get back on their feet. But will it help by attacking immigrants? No.”

“If we do not train, accept and share ideas with each other, we cannot learn and develop. Young people should learn from us. They need to know that the economic situation is not good in Finland, but blaming immigrants is not a solution”, says the Kenyan woman.

Latest: Raila Defends Aladwa Over Mashujaa Day Utterances

RAILA AND ALADWAOpposition leader Raila Odinga has defended ODM Nairobi County branch chairman George Aladwa over an alleged hate speech he made during a rally held in Kibra on Mashujaa Day. Raila said Aladwa’s name is “being dragged into politics by his political opponents” adding that he was innocent.

“Aladwa has done nothing wrong to provoke public outcry,” said Raila. Aladwa has been widely condemned by the public for utterances he made at the Kibera rally with politicians mainly from the ruling Jubilee coalition calling for his prosecution.

His address according to a video circulating on social media directs at creation of chaos come 2017 general elections. He is also heard saying that some people will have to die if the elections are stolen in Raila’s disfavour.

Aladwa has however, said his statement was misinterpreted since he meant that Raila’s supporters will die of joy if the opposition leader won the election. Speaking on Thursday in Thika during the funeral of wife of a freedom fighter Gitu wa Kahengeri, Raila urged politicians to stop mudslinging their political rivals to gain political mileage.

“Politicians should not play cheap politics to their rival politicians to earn public favours,” said Raila. Aladwa was arrested on Friday morning at the Railways Club in Nairobi by officers from the Criminal Investigations Directorate and taken to Kilimani police station for questioning.

Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko had ordered the CID to investigate the utterances made by Aladwa who was later released by the High Court on a Sh20,000 cash bail.
