  • Kenya is just like a piece of envelope which has been sealed and stamped for the last 50 years and it has never been opened,ever since,the contents seemed to have leaked out and exposed how dirty they been running this country as if it were a private instituition,the contents of the envelope found its way to the supreme court,they had no powers to stop it,no matter how much they must have tried to shut down the cameras,now will they leave the power or rule by force?its a matter of time we are seeing another Egypt,Tunisia,and Syria in kenya incase the supreme court is not convinced with just a single evidence if not many that elections were rigged in favour of Uhuru Kenyatta,its my prayers that supreme court will convince the whole world including the icc that judicial system has gone under reforms and can deliver

  • The Kenyan Law is An Ass

    I was disappointed by Attorney General Githu Muigai’s role as the Supreme Court’s amicus curiae (friend of the court) during the recent presidential election petition. For instance, he used the case of Nigeria to reflect how her courts have dealt with past presidential petitions. Clearly, this country does not reflect ‘best practice’ especially in the 1980s, when it was riddled with military dictatorship. The law is surely an ass because it goes without saying that the Constitution of the day favored whoever won, whether fairly or not.

    The example of Uganda which was used by lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi to ask the Supreme Court not to grant petitioner Raila Odinga victory, was another pathetic one. He asserted that opposition leader Besigye’s petition challenging president Museveni’s win at that time was not granted, yet Ugandans had faced violence and other atrocities. He then mentioned that Kenyans had a relatively peaceful voting process; meaning, minor anomalies in the vote count are nothing and should be dismissed.

    Museveni has continually abused Uganda’s constitution to retain power and would therefore manipulate the courts to favor him. If the country’s highest court has never challenged the constitutional change that guaranteed him the presidency beyond the required mandate, how then, can it be an example in dealing with election petitions? Ahmednasir claimed that nullifying Uhuru Kenyatta’s win would cause a constitutional crisis and asked the Supreme Court judges to be restrictive in their determination. Nevertheless, if Raila wins, Kibaki will remain president and use other Government officials to run the country until a new one is sworn in, so there will be no power vacuum.

    During the trial, I learned that lawyers can interpret sections of the Constitution to favor their clients and not the Mwananchi. Further, Kenya’s adversarial legal system does not necessarily require them to adduce evidence in this case, and that assumed political ramifications may determine the outcome.

    Apart from the obvious shenanigans by some lawyers in defense of their clients, they were all outstanding in their submissions. Generally, Ahmednasir came out as arrogant and was toned down by Judge Smokin Wanjala who told him that the Supreme Court was not on trial. Lawyer Kethi Kilonzo put up a very good show despite some of her evidence being disallowed due to technicalities. She is a good role model for those aspiring to be lawyers.

    Lastly, the Kenyan media houses deserve a big thank you for providing live streaming of the court proceedings.

  • 10 billion barrels of oil confirmed in kenya
    10 BILLION BARRELS OF OIL FOUND IN KENYA
    Enough to supply country for 300 years
    Published: 9 hours ago
    (OILPRICE) — The Cradle of Mankind is a
    Great Rift valley that runs through Kenya,
    created by separating tectonic plates, and so
    named due to the million-year old human
    remains that have been discovered there.
    They are not the only things that have been
    discovered there; oil drillers claim that
    preliminary tests suggest a string of fields in
    the area that could transform the country
    into a major oil producer.
    Last year Tullow Oil Plc., of the U.K., and
    Africa Oil Corp., of Canada, discovered crude
    oil at two exploratory wells, and now plant
    to drill a further 11 during 2013. Tullow
    estimates that the valley could hold 10 billion
    barrels of oil, enough to supply Kenya for
    300 years.
    Africa’s oil industry has focussed on the
    West, with Nigeria producing the majority of
    the continents oil, and East Africa has
    remained overlooked. Afren Plc. Stated that
    of the more than 30,000 wells drilled in
    Africa, less than 500 have been in East
    Africa.

  • A Kenyan Revolution: Combating Corruption by Phone?
    Mar 06, 2013

    The vignette from 2002 speaks to bitter resentments expressed in Kenya’s still unsettled election, and to the broader hope that digital technology can — somehow — circumvent the quiet oppression of corruption.

    The revealing event itself was over and done in half a minute. A Kenyan businessman and I were in his car, on the outskirts of Nairobi, on the return leg of a visit to an entrepreneurial skills development class. After admiring his knack for slipping between and around miserably slow, diesel-belching trucks, I asked about local institutional financing for companies moving past the startup phase.

    “All of the banks in Kenya are corrupt,” he said, but without a trace of anger. His right hand slid into his jacket pocket. Out came his cumbersome circa-1998 cellphone. “This is what I want.” His left hand released the steering wheel, he quickly fake-punched the phone buttons, then coolly grabbed the wheel. “I want to be able to move money from my account to anywhere. Like that.”

    He named a British bank, one he trusted more than any Kenyan outfit. “The corruption in Kenya is terrible and our worst problem,” he continued. “It hurts. It kills us. And it is difficult to change it. This situation. I want to be able to keep my money in a place that is honest.”

    He added that he couldn’t wait for the day when he could securely (and he stressed securely) handle local and international financial transactions digitally and give the slip to endemic political and economic corruption.

    Corruption, political and economic, was the biggest issue in Kenya’s disputed 2007 election, which gave current President Mwai Kibaki a second term. Despite Kibaki’s sworn commitment to combat corruption, corruption remains the biggest issue in the 2013 election. The worst example is political. The International Criminal Court (ICC) has indicted the likely winner, Uhuru Kenyatta, for directing the post-2007 election tribal violence that left over 1,000 Kenyans dead. Though the evidence against him is compelling, in February Kenya’s High Court refused to remove him from the ballot.

    Why? There are several reasons, none good. Uhuru Kenyatta is a member of Kenya’s largest tribe, the Kikuyu (and the tribe of my friend, the disenchanted businessman). A court ruling against him might have guaranteed a tribal war. Uhuru is also the son of Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya’s first president and the founding father of modern Kenya. Critics regard the elder Kenyatta as the man who institutionalized governmental corruption, and that corruption has seeped throughout the economic and political system.

    Uhuru’s chief opponent, Prime Minister Raila Odinga, lost to Kibaki in 2007. Odinga is a member of the Luo tribe, which happens to be the tribe of U.S. President Barack Obama’s father. After the 2008 U.S. election, Kenyans told a bitter joke. What’s the difference between the U.S. and Kenya? In the U.S., a Luo can be elected president.

    Odinga casts himself as a critic of the Kenyatta system. Yes, aspects of Kenya’s corruption problem link to tribalism. However, Odinga’s family, like Kenyatta’s, also ranks among Kenya’s wealthy elite.

    By the way, Forbes ranks Uhuru Kenyatta as the wealthiest man in Kenya. How did the Kenyattas get rich?

    Kenyans know. Last month, The Washington Post ran a story highlighting a new Kenyan website named “I Paid a Bribe.” The website solicits personal reports from Kenyans regarding their experience with “kitu kidogo,” Swahili for “something small,” meaning a small bribe. It’s a global concept. Mexicans call it “mordida” (“little bite”). The Post’s article connected the website to the Arab Spring revolts, which featured large-scale use of digital media for revolutionary communication.

    This circles back to 2002 and my friend the businessman. Off the road and over a cup of coffee, he opined that Kenya’s disparate tribes buy and sell from one another, and all of them are abused by the political crooks. Business is people, not tribe, but favoritism, cronyism? This is why he looked elsewhere, for freedom from this subtle tyranny.

    No, he didn’t show me his cellphone. He’d already done that.

  • Moving From Tyranny To Safety Of Numbers

    March 29, 2013

    By: Okiya Omtatah Okoiti

    Kenya is a multi-ethnic state, composed of 42 officially recognised tribes. The 2009 census figures give the ethnic composition as follows (out of a total population of 38.6 million): Kikuyu 17%, Luhya 14%, Kalenjin 13%, Luo 10%, Kamba 10%, Kisii 6%, Mijikenda 5%, Meru 4%, Turkana 2.5%, and Maasai 2.1%. About 9% of the population consist of smaller groups below 1% each, and Non-African groups (Arabs, Indians and Europeans) are estimated to total to about 1%.

    Ever since Kenya’s independence in 1963, Kenyan politics have been characterized by ethnic tensions and rivalry between the larger groups, escalating into the 2007–2008 postelection violence that nearly plunged the country into a civil war.

    There is need to raise one million signatures as required under the popular initiative (article 257) to amend article 136 of the constitution to provide for the election of the president through a county based electoral system as opposed to the current one-person-one-vote system which has been reduced to a mere census of tribal numbers.

    The beauty of Kenya’s diversity is such that there is no majority tribe. There are large tribes but none is more than 50% of the population. For example, its largest ethnic group, the Kikuyu, make up for less than a fifth of the total population. In reality, therefore, Kenya has a safety of numbers, and not a tyranny of numbers, among its ethnic groups. However, to exploit this reality, Kenya must institute a presidential electoral system where all ethnic groups, large and small, feel safe and important in the prosecution of national affairs, especially as embodied in the election of the President and the Deputy President, who are symbols both of national consensus and of the unity of the Republic.

    The system must move the country away from the current state of affairs where large tribes tyrannise smaller ones during elections, and where the main criteria for occupying the Presidency is the numerical size of the ethnic blocks backing a candidate. The system must boost the process of devolving power from Nairobi, an act designed to improve local governance and to reduce marginalization and the risk of conflict between communities.

    Such as system is only possible where the President and the Deputy President are not elected directly in a popular vote nationally. Instead, they are elected indirectly by popular vote on a county-by-county basis.

    The United States of America elects its politically powerful president via an electoral college designed to ensure the election of the president through a popular vote and to protect the interests of the states. The founders of the USA wanted each state to have a voice in the election of the president and, therefore, even small states have political influence nationally. The US Constitution specifies that the president and vice president be chosen through the votes cast by electors chosen by the states, rather than by a direct popular vote. Hence, the President and Vice President are not elected directly by the voters. Instead, they are elected indirectly by “electors” who are elected by popular vote on a state-by-state basis. And a candidate can become president without having obtained the highest number of votes nationally in the sole or final round of popular voting.

    The county electoral system is a block, or weighed, voting system that is designed to give more power to the counties with more votes, but allows for small counties to swing an election. Under this system, each county is assigned a specific number of votes that is proportional to its population, so that each county’s power is representative of its population. So, while winning the popular vote may not ensure a candidate’s victory, a candidate must gain popular support of a particular county to win the votes in that county.

    Each county is apportioned electoral votes equal to the number of its elected Members of National Assembly plus one elected Senator. Hence, there would be 337 electoral votes, being 290 Members of the National Assembly and 47 Senators elected into Parliament. The county electoral votes are taken on a “winner-take-all” basis. That is, all electoral votes in a county are given to the winning presidential candidate. To be elected President, one must get at least 169 votes, being 50% + 1 of the electoral votes. The goal of any candidate would be to put together the right combination of counties that will give him or her 169 electoral votes.

    Should none of the candidates win 169 electoral votes a runoff between the top two candidates will be conducted.

    Under the system, and using IEBC figures, results of the 2013 elections would be:

    Raila 197 votes

    Uhuru 134 votes

    Mudavadi 6 votes

    Muite 0 Votes

    Dida 0 Votes

    Karua 0 Votes

    Kiyapi 0 Votes

    Kenneth 0 Votes

    The current distribution of Electoral Votes per county would be as follows:
    Mombasa 7
    Kwale 5
    Kilifi 8
    Tana River 4
    Lamu 3
    Taita Taveta 5
    Garissa 7

    Isiolo 3

    Migori 9
    Kisii 10

    Nairobi 18
    TOTALS 337
