Why Kenyans Should Expect More Violation of the Constitution by the New Gangster Regime
Real power will be wielded by mount Kenya mafia cartel in the interest of the thieving ruling class
Since it was promulgated, the new Kenyan Constitution has been violated several times without consequences especially in situations where the interests of the thieving Kikuyu ruling class mafia cartel is involved. This is a reality which Kenyans will continue to live with regardless of the number of times the sanctity of the Constitution is repeated on radio and TV.
The Constitution is supposed to be a symbol of power and this is why during the swearing in of any President-elect, the holder of that Office is usually handed over two symbols of power – a sword and a copy of the Constitution. However, in times of crisis especially when ruling class interests are threatened, the President usually leads in raping the Constitution and, in the process, disregarding the public interest because the power to implement the Constitution rests with the ruling class, not the people of Kenya. To illustrate recent violations which drew no consequences, a few key examples will suffice.
According to the Constitution, the IEBC was supposed to stop both Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto from presenting themselves as candidates on grounds of integrity but the IEBC looked the other way because both Uhuru and Ruto were being backed by key members of the Kikuyu mafia ruling class which wanted the indictees to present themselves as candidates. The reason was that the mafia, which controls the presidency, wanted to rig the two criminals to take over power. The agenda was to protect the vested interests of the Kikuyu mafia cartel which will be running Kenya soon after Uhuru and Ruto are sworn in on 9th April 2013.
Although the Committee for the Implementation of the Constitution led by Nyachae has been vocal in illuminating instances when violations were being done, the Committee remained mum as Uhuru and Ruto were allowed to contest the presidency. Now, Kenyans have suspected war criminals at the helm while the two will be setting up a gangster regime soon after being sworn in.
According to the Constitution, Kenyans in Diaspora were supposed to vote in the just rigged elections. The Constitution was promulgated by octogenarian Mwai Kibaki in August 2010. There was ample time to organize for Kenyans abroad to vote but this key provision in the Constitution was violated with impunity because of ruling class interests. The problem was that the Kikuyu mafia had planned to rig elections and if Kenyans in Diaspora had voted, it was likely that the Diaspora vote could have complicated the rigging process especially if majority of the votes were in favour of Cord. The solution was to disenfranchise Kenyans in Diaspora and nothing happened although this was one of the worst violations imaginable.
Thirdly, according to the Constitution, IEBC was supposed to preside over a free and fair election. However, after Kenyans voted on 4th March, evidence adduced before the Supreme Court indicated that IEBC was in the frontline of election rigging thereby violating the Constitution with impunity. Any Kenyan with brains knows that IEBC could not have rigged election by itself. The Mount Kenya Mafia cartel was behind it. This cartel acts with impunity and although the Constitution was violated, nothing happened and now, Kenyans are faced with the prospect of another fake President awaiting to be sworn in after election was openly stolen.
After election theft, Kenyans will remember the banning of public rallies by the mafia cartel. The Constitution guarantees Freedom of peaceful Assembly but since such gatherings could threaten the interests of Kikuyu mafia cartel at a delicate time, all public gatherings were banned on grounds of security. Public gatherings have the capacity to demonstrate public opposition to illegal government activities and banning them in times of crisis is a common strategy of capitalist ruling classes the world over. In banning these gathering, the Constitution was violated with impunity and nothing happened.
Violation by Dr. Willy Mutunga and his “Supreme Cohorts”
After election theft, the least Kenyans of good-will expected was for the Supreme Court to intervene by ordering a re-run of the Presidential vote. If Uhuru Kenyatta did win election with the said 800 000 votes as alleged, he ought to have been able to win again. A re-run could have squared the controversy and given Uhuru the mandate to govern without the shadow of an “election thief” hanging on his shoulders. However, the Supreme Court, which millions of Kenyans had trusted with the delivery of Justice as per the Constitution, was compromised and now, Uhuru will be the President of the Kikuyu and the Kalenjin who did vote for him.
Dr. Willy Mutunga and his five “Supreme Cohorts” gang-raped the Constitution and delivered a deformed justice to promote the interests of election thieves. This was a case in which the Constitution was being violated by the highest institution that was set up to protect it from defilement and so far, nothing has happened to the Judges who are now criminals by virtue of having participated in the violation of the Constitution with impunity. The Supreme Court is now another useless institution in Kenya. The fake verdict has proved that the SC is just another tool of thieves in government with Dr. Mutunga as their High Priest in the Court system. Ruling class interests were at stake.
Soon after the scandalous Supreme Court verdict, a fresh violation of the Constitution was witnessed. According to the document, the life of every Kenyan is sacrosanct. However, State police shot and killed unarmed youths in Kisumu following the verdict. Instead of arresting the suspects to be brought before the Courts to answer charges of murder, the mafia cartel has “opened an inquest”. The problem is that the police unit which shot the youths is a major tool of violence against civilians and bringing them to face justice for crimes committed in the process of protecting ruling class interests could demoralise members of the force and cause the unit to malfunction especially in times of crisis. This is why very few police officers are usually brought before the law after committing murder and this is the way the situation will remain.
The Constitution gives the Salaries Remuneration Committee powers to decide on salaries of civil servants including MPs. After it did its job, the MPs are in arms, claiming that their salaries of more than half a million Kenyan shillings is “too little”. In line with their agenda to loot public coffers, the MPs have entered into new discussions with the Salaries Commission to push for an adjustment of their salaries upwards. This is a violation of the Constitution because the MPs are interfering with the Commission’s work. The process to discuss the salaries has now been put in motion. MPs are part of the ruling elite and the only reason why they are violating the Constitution is because their interests are threatened.
There are daily violations that need not be mentioned – the right to food, clothing and shelter. Although the Constitution guarantees these rights, millions of Kenyans continue to go hungry, are walking naked or have no roof above their heads. Although every MP has a Ksh 10 million health cover, ordinary Kenyans who elected them to Office have no health care.
In summary, and in as much as Kenyans would like to worship the Constitution, the document remains a piece of paper firmly on the hands of the thieving Kikuyu mafia ruling cartel. These gangsters, together with their collaborators will continue to violate the document with impunity to protect their interests. The implementation of the document is on their hands and not on the hands of Kenyans.
Any Kenyan who believes that Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto will protect the Constitution is just naïve because the two will not wield any power. They will be following orders. The real power will be wielded by the mafia cartel which rigged the two in Office to render elections a meaningless undertaking in the Republic of Kenya. This is the new Kenya wananchi are facing as suspected criminals charged with rape and murder of thousands of Kenyans await to be sworn in on Tuesday, 9th April 2013.
