  • Kikuyunization under Uhuru Kenyatta

    “I thought Amos Kimunya was humbled when he lost the recent elections! Today, he launches National Transport & Safety Authority (NTSA) and its members are: Joseph Kamau Thuo, Carole Kariuki, Isaac Kamau and Karanja Kibicho!!!

    Who will tell Amos Kimunya that one tribe can never be
    “National”? Why is is he such a rabid tribalist? Why couldn’t the nominees reject the appointment for being one tribe? Where is Mzalendo Kibunjia? Who will save Kenya from Amos Kimunya???”

  • ICC is the only savior to the decadent and corrupt legal system of Kenya. For the last 50 years, people have been murdered and nobody has been brought to justice. During the administration of the second president of Kenya, a prominent member of the cabinet was killed and then lies heaped upon the defenseless dead body. Financial scandals have rocked the treasury of Kenya and yet no big cat has been arrested or asked to refund the treasury what was stolern. The commoin mwananchi demands action. Since the Kenyan court system is rotten to the bone marrow, the IDP and the people slaughtered in Naivasha can only get justice from Hague. This is why I blame and condemn the IEBC and
    the supreme court of Kenya for making it possible for people facing crimes against humanity to run for any public office., I ask the ICCto try Samoei and Uhuru without taking into consideration their curreny positions. They should have waited to cleat their names instead of dragging the entire nation into this mess. Finally, the security for
    ces must stop carjacking or be fired.

    As long as Kenyans remain tribal, the results will be the same. Kenyatta is president today and his son will definitely rule in the next decade. Democracy in Kenya today is based wholly on tribal numbers and blocks. Can anyone imagine splitting these blocks using policy based politics instead? Granted some areas have been developed at the expense of others but generally every county in Kenya has the same poverty levels and still lack the basics. As long as people keep on antagonizing the common Kikuyu with comments like those that are being thrown around on KSB and Social Media, they will always seek comfort in voting tribal. That is the way they will always counter the hate being directed at them, with their numbers. The winner and beneficiaries in this situation will always be the Kikuyu political elite (mafia) and their cohorts who are always prepared to make deals with the mafia groups from the other tribes to retain political and economic power using the numerical superiority of the Kikuyu as a bargaining chip to dictate terms.

    Kenyans are their worst enemy and they are destroying themselves from within by acceding to the politics of tribe. The day a Luo man can sympathize with his Kikuyu counterpart or vice versa, and come to the realization that the political elite see them as cattle or goods for trade, is the day all Kenyans will begin experience justice for all and accountability will be more than a chorus word.

    Until then stop crying crocodile tears and enjoy the political establishment you all so richly deserve!

  • Impunity moves hand in hand with power. That’s the reason we should least expect anything near justice to the IDP’s of 2007/2008 post election violence.

    Fergal Gaynor has instead asked the Trial Chamber to speed up Kenyatta’s trial due to claims of witness intimidation/FILE
    NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 4 – The legal representative of victims in the ICC case against President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta is opposing referral of the case back to Pre-Trial Chamber.

    Fergal Gaynor has instead asked the Trial Chamber to speed up Kenyatta’s trial due to claims of witness intimidation.

    He faulted the prosecution for dropping charges against former Head of Civil Service Francis Muthaura on basis of witness intimidation yet the court has powers to issue sanctions on those blocking progress of the cases.

    “The withdrawal of the charges against Muthaura and the reasons provided by the prosecutor for that withdrawal cannot be allowed to stand as an incentive to those who would seek to undermine the work of this court through bribery, intimidation and blocking access to relevant evidence,” he said.

    In his application, Gaynor argued that the Trial Chamber has no jurisdiction to determine the fairness, integrity or validity of the confirmation proceedings.

    According to him, only the Appeals Chamber or the Pre-Trial Chamber can review confirmation process.

    The lawyer also argued that the request by Kenyatta’s counsel is a delaying tactic and the Trial Chamber should not allow it.

    “If granted, it will result in substantial delay, as it would require a fresh confirmation hearing, possibly involving the submission of much more evidence than at the original confirmation hearing, and would require the preparation of a new confirmation decision which itself will likely be subject to an application for leave to appeal. Any further delay in this case carries with it enormous risk,” he asserted.

    The prosecution withdrew charges against Muthaura, Kenyatta’s co-accused, after the key witnesses retracted his evidence.

    Kenyatta and Muthaura were jointly accused of implementing a common plan that led to killings in Nakuru and Naivasha during the post election violence in 2008.

    Kenyatta’s lawyer Stephen Kay during last month’s status conference asked the prosecution to explain how their client carried out a ‘common plan’ on his own arguing; “a common plan to execute crime collapses once the co-perpetrator is withdrawn or shielded.”

    The Trial Chamber also tasked the prosecution to explain how Kenyatta would be charged for contributing to a common plan on his own.

    The judges wanted to know how Kenyatta individually constituted a common plan in the absence of co-accused after withdrawal of charges against Muthaura and former Police Commissioner Hussein Ali, who were facing similar charges.

    The prosecution said it will not make any amendments even after dropping charges against Kenyatta’s co-accused.

    Although the dates for the trials of Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto and former Radio personality Joshua arap Sang have been set for July and May respectively, the Trial Chamber is yet to rule on Kenyatta’s request to have charges against him dropped or referred to the Pre-Trial Chamber.

    Meanwhile, the Victims Legal Representative in the Ruto-Sang case Wilfred Nderitu who can give an opinion in Kenyatta’s case, has opposed a request by the president-elect to stand trial via video link.Why Radio/video Link Uhuru Must attend in Hague Personally !Why is he fearing if he is innocent?

  • David Kipkorir, by all chances a Kalenjin is asking who will save Kenya from Amos Kimunya after confirming that NTSA has been constituted solely of Kikuyus.

    That’s why Kalenjins voted for Ruto. Ask him.

    KSB: The Kalenjin in Jubilee are unaware that Ruto has been roasted as Uhuru is surrounded ny Kiambu mafia cartel. The likes of Kipkorir will soon come to their senses after the honey moon.

    Ati You can kill ICC witnesses and go away with it ? Do Kenyan wanted by ICC in Hague thinks they can humiliate Western civilized Community by letting this court down?Two real life anecdotes:

    1. Around 2009 after the brutal execution of the young, charismatic Nairobi university student activist GPO Oulo, a half a dozen of his comrades went underground fearing for their safety. Some sought refuge in neigbouring Uganda. A couple remained sequestered in the Kenyan capital. One of them was hidden in a safe house in one of the middle class suburbs of Nairobi. He soon found out that some of his neighbours were former members of Mungiki who had come out to testify about what they knew of the reprisal attacks of the 2008 post election violence and who were behind these acts of violence. One day, around three o’clock as he was coming into the compound he was staying in, he accosted one of his fellow residents being escorted past the gate by a person in civilian clothes that had “Flying Squad” written all over him. His fellow resident was ordered to kneel down-and it was broad daylight, around 3 pm- and the guy was pleading desperately for mercy. The person he was with did not utter a word. He simply took out an assault rifle and shot the potential ICC witness dead. There were other potential witnesses temporarily holed up in the same safe house. The message was unambiguous: “We can get you wherever you are and there is nothing anybody can do about this.”

    2. Some 11 former Mungiki members had escaped to Tanzania. Through the good offices of a former employee of the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights who had crossed over to work for one of the chief suspects in the Kenyan ICC case, they were tracked to their hideouts and coaxed back to Nairobi. They were then persuaded to go to a certain office in the Kenyan capital where they were convinced that somebody somewhere was prepared to give them a lot of money plus some acres of land if they agreed to cooperate and drop their plans to testify for the OTP. To show the seriousness of the offer, each of the eleven was actually handed the money in cash which they pocketed. They were then told that they would be driven to the parcels of land they had been allocated. Apparently, when they were just past Limuru, near Kinaru(?) forest near Soko M.jinga, they were ordered out of the vehicles and frogmarched into the nearby thickets. Each one was shot in the head.

    Moments later, the leader of the execution squad got a text message on his mobile phone:

    “Your payment is in their pockets.”

    At least this is what I was told some time last year. The Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court was similarly appraised, according to my source.

    inShare.Halleluyah! Muthaura closes ICC chapter
    By LORDRICK MAYABI | April 7, 2013

    Friends and family gathered at Muthaura’s Rongai home to celebrate the decision by ICC to drop all the charges that the former civil service boss had faced/CFM
    NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 7 – In the end they gathered to celebrate and give thanks to God, and rejoice they did!.

    Since the name of former Head of Civil Service Francis Kirimi Muthaura appeared in the list of those suspected to be highly culpable for the post poll chaos of 2008, his family acknowledges that it received support from close friends and his government colleagues.

    But on Saturday they gathered at Muthaura’s Rongai home to celebrate the decision by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to drop all the charges that the former civil service boss had faced.

    Amidst all the celebration it was also time to reveal what the Muthaura’s went through behind the public glare while the ICC Prosecutor held that it had a case against the career public servant.

    In the words of his wife, Rose who rarely spoke about the issue in public, it was a long journey with a good ending but chiefly with the support of family and friends. She revealed that even to them, the announcement by prosecutor Fatou Bensouda that she wanted to withdraw the case, was a pleasant surprise to the family.

    “We knew that we were not alone and that there were people out there praying for us wishing us well, supporting us in all kinds of ways and we continued to pray to God. God did it for us sooner than we expected,” she said and added that she has never received better news than the breaking news she received that day.

    Rose says that Bensouda was wise to withdraw the charges as the legal team her husband had assembled would have torn apart the evidence provided by the prosecution.

    During a status conference for Muthaura and Uhuru Kenyatta on March 11, Bensouda told the court that it was quite a difficult decision for the prosecution to make.

    She explained that the absence of strong incriminating evidence and lack of witnesses compelled her to drop the charges. She also regretted that witnesses were compromised, while others had died before they could testify before the court.

    For his son Paul, it had been a painstaking period seeing his father in court and having to explain to every visitor the situation. He says that it got a bit desperate for him and his two sisters as their professional expertise could not help their father.

    He said: “I am not a criminal lawyer, just as my sister and the other who is a doctor; it becomes frustrating when as a professional you cannot step up to protect the person you care for so dearly.”

    Former Director of the Kenya anti Corruption Commission Aaron Ringera who is a close confidant of Muthaura said he had at times regretted leading the Kenyan delegation to sign the Rome Statute in 1998.

    As a consultant for the Muthaura legal team, Ringera says he was always confident that the case would not stand any ground as the theory behind it was wrong and the facts manufactured.

    “The decision brought to an end a deep winter in the life of Muthaura, a winter of anguish and stigma,” he said adding that the case would have crumbled like a house of cards had it proceeded to trial.

    Muthaura while thanking his family and friends insisted that his saddest day was when Parliament failed to pass the legislation required to form a local tribunal.

    “We have institutions that can do a much better job than what we went through at The Hague; our judges can do much better work in sorting out our issues than foreign judges who sometimes have very mixed ideas about what type of people we are,” he said.

    And in the end all the friends including permanent secretaries, businessmen, politicians and clergy went away convinced that justice had been served to a man described as a fine diplomat and a respecter of family values.

  • A chilling tour of the Kenyan church that became the scene of mass murder
    By Steve Bloomfield in Eldoret Thursday 03 January 2008

    Tears streamed down the cheeks of 18-year-old Sheila Kai as she described the moment before the Kenya Assemblies of God Pentecostal church in Kiambaa was burnt to the ground.

    “They told us to get inside the church or they would kill us,” she whispered, describing a gang of more than 200 men. “Then they closed the door.”

    All possible escape routes were then locked shut with metal chains. Mattresses were placed around the outside of the building, then doused with paraffin and set alight. “People were praying, calling for God, screaming,” Ms Kai said.

    She was one of the lucky ones, dragged to safety through a window as the church collapsed. But dozens were killed; the youngest just three days old.

    Monday’s attack on more than 200 Kikuyus seeking sanctuary from rising tribal violence has shocked the country. Kenya has always prided itself on being an oasis of stability in an otherwise turbulent region, but that reputation seemed in tatters after violence that has engulfed the country following presidential elections widely seen as flawed.

    As accusations flew yesterday in the capital Nairobi, with re-elected President Moi Kibaki, a Kikuyu, accusing his rival Raila Odinga, a Luo, of unleashing genocide, here in this small village in western Kenya the grim recovery of bodies was under way.

    Two lay on the charred ground by the still-smouldering ruins of the church, grey and blue blankets thrown over them to give a veneer of modesty in death. The woman was badly burnt, the man appeared to have been hacked to death with a machete.

    And in the smoking ashes, there were signs of the sheer panic that swept through the church as the flames rose. A small dainty red shoe lay in the ashes; beside it a child’s white trainer, a blue plimsoll and a green Wellington boot.

    A handbag, singed around the edges, lay in the nearby grass; others were hastily jettisoned by a wall, dropped by owners who had hoped to find refuge, but instead found themselves fleeing in fear of their lives.

    “They wanted us to burn inside,” said a middle-aged mother of five with severe burns across her forehead. “Men forced open the door and people started falling over each other, trying to escape,” she said.

    Survivors said the attackers were from the Kalenjin tribe, the dominant ethnic group in the Rift Valley area of Kenya. Until Tuesday, they had been living alongside them as neighbours. “They were calling us by our names,” said Jospeh Mugweru, one of the Kikuyu men who had tried to fight the assailants. “I don’t know why they would do this. We were friends.”

    “We knew them well,” another woman said. “They were people who came to our houses to drink tea.”

    Red Cross volunteers, who had originally believed that up to 100 people may have died, had recovered 17 bodies, all charred beyond all recognition, by yesterday morning. The remains of several small children had still not been found, their bodies reduced to ash by the force of the flames. The final death toll was likely to be between 30 and 40, officials said.

    Survivors of the Kiambaa massacre had walked the five long miles through the now barren sugar-cane fields to the nearest town, seeking refuge and treatment for their wounds.

    Last night Eldoret was under siege. Marauding gangs of 50 or more men burnt and looted houses in Kikuyu areas, attacking men, women and children. “No Kikuyus!” they shouted, “Go home!” referring to Kenya’s Central province, the Kikuyu heartland. But no one could leave. Roadblocks ringed the town, manned by young men armed with machetes, sticks and bows and arrows. They hauled people from their cars, barking at them to show their identity cards. Those with Kikuyu names were dragged away and killed, witnesses said.

    A military truck carrying nine machine-gun toting soldiers and members of their families was stopped at a roadblock manned by Kalenjins and Luhyas. The young men, some of them drunk, demanded that all the Kikuyus on board get off before the truck could continue. The soldiers refused and turned back towards town. The youths fired arrows at the departing truck, striking three people in the back.

    “We are now landlocked,” said Susan Iraya, a mother of three seeking shelter in the hospital grounds after seeing her neighbour’s house torched and four people killed. “We are surrounded. We cannot move. They were telling us it’s an ODM [Orange Democratic Movement] zone,” she said. “We are now refugees in our own country.”

    The ODM, the party of the opposition candidate Raila Odinga, has claimed it was robbed of victory in last week’s presidential election. President Kibaki was hastily sworn in on Sunday, but international observers have said the election fell short of international standards.

    Last night some 10,000 people were huddled in the grounds of Eldoret’s Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic cathedral. Its bishop has been threatened for sheltering Kikuyus.

    Police are patrolling the streets at night but there are no guards stationed outside the cathedral’s gates. “We are dealing with a very dangerous crowd outside,” said Bishop Cornelius Korir. “They are all anti-Kikuyu, and their enmity is strong.”

    As the ethnic violence has continued to spread across Kenya, comparisons have been made to other African nations, including Rwanda, where vicious bouts of ethnic-cleansing spiralled into civil war. But Bishop Korir said the sheer number of tribes in Kenya there are 42 could prevent such a thing. “There are still good neutral people who can help us solve this, people from other tribes who can mediate.”

    Meanwhile, at the hospital in Eldoret, medical workers are struggling to cope with a death toll that has dramatically escalated in the past three days. Thirteen bodies were recovered on Monday, 34 on Tuesday, and at least 50 were waiting to be transported to the hospital’s mortuary. Distraught nurses sat on corridor benches, quietly sobbing, before returning to their duties.

    “Yesterday alone we treated more than 150 people injured in the fighting,” said Dr Omar Ali, the hospital’s deputy director. “We normally just deal with malaria and kidney failure, things like that,” he said. “This is the worst situation we have ever had.”

    For those despairing about the abyss into which Kenya seems to be sliding, one scene at the hospital did offer at least a glimmer of hope. Outside the emergency room sat Job Baraza, a baker by trade, who had brought his friend and colleague William in to be treated after he was struck on the head by a machete when he tried to break through the roadblock.

    The pair were from different tribes, but Job was clear about his priorities. “We are still friends,” he said. “It does not matter what tribe he is.”
