Mabati Pick-Ups Passed for “Armoured Cars” and Kills KDF Soldiers

In a new scandal that has exploded in the Jubilee territory, mabati pickps were packaged as armoured vehicles at a cost of Ksh 1.1 billion. The Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC) and Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles were bought for the National Police Force by the Jubilee government which touted them as the ultimate answer to the Al-Shabbab menace.

The alarm came on Wednesday, 31st May 2017 when the APCs were put to test. Seven police officers were packed into one vehicle then dispatched to deal with Al-Shabbab terrorists in Lamu county.

The chase appeared to have been going well but as the team was cruising between Bure and Milimani in Lamu, an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) that had been planted beside the road by the terrorists went off, blowing the APC into the air and destroying it to smithereens.

MABATI PICKU-UPS

Naturally, no one could have survived the blast and all seven officers lost their lives in the ensuing fireball. Last year, the government acquired 30 Chinese-built VN-4 type APCs which were then attached to the General Service Unit.

Additionally, a fleet of CS/VP3 type MRP vehicles was purchased and despatched to the Rural Border Patrol Unit of the Administration Police.

What is pathetic is that after the Officers lost their lives, military reinforcements were scambed to the scene immediately but their APC was also blown into pieces along the way instantly killing two soldiers. Nine Kenyan families went into mourning.

According to Poly Technologies, a Chinese company which manufactures the MRAPS, the vehicle ought to be able to withstand an explosion of up to 8kg TNT all around its hull and an additional 16kg of TNT under each wheel. This did not happen and soldiers and policemen who believed in the ability of the vehicles to protect them in the event of a blast all perished.

The fundamental question which emerges is: what really did happen? The immediate answer is that the vehicles purchased by the Jubilee government are either sub-standard or out rightly bogus. They could actually be “mabati-pick-ups” converted into “armoured vehicle” then sold to Kenya under a secretive deal only known to the Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Internal Security and Office of President.

For now, and two months ahead of election, it will remain impossible for anyone to know the level of corruption that was involved in the purchase of the bogus vehicles until NASA takes over power in August.

In the meantime, any police officer or soldier stepping into the vehicles expecting protection from Al-Shabbab-made Improvised Explosive Devices is on their own, exposed and unlikely to return even before reaching the terrorists.

While the intention was nobble in the sense that the vehicles were purchased to help fight the terrorists, Al-Shabbab seem to be winning the war because they are succeeding in killing Kenyan police and military officers before these forces can even reach them. It’s the perfect war strategy and with a dumb government being led by a lame-duck president and a clueless Deputy President, Kenya’s war on terrorism is already doomed. Jubilee must be sent home in August so that NASA can make the country great again.

  • very true those vehicles are below standard. its very sad watching our officers die all because someone pocketed money to deliver substandard equipment. i think this is not a matter of whether the procurement was done by jubilee guys, its all about personal integrity.

    “Reverends, Fathers and Dear Compatriots: The task that is given to fulfill is very delicate
    and requires much tact. You will go certainly to evangelize, but your evangelization must inspire
    above all Belgium interests. Your principal objective in our mission in the Congo is never to teach
    the niggers to know God, this they know already. They speak and submit to a Mungu, one Nzambi,
    one Nzakomba, and what else I don’t know. They know that to kill, to sleep with someone else’s
    wife, to lie and to insult is bad. Have courage to admit it; you are not going to teach them what they
    know already. Your essential role is to facilitate the task of administrators and industrials, which
    means you will go to interpret the gospel in the way it will be the best to protect your interests in
    that part of the world. For these things, you have to keep watch on disinteresting our savages from
    the richness that is plenty [in their underground. To avoid that, they get interested in it, and make
    you murderous] competition and dream one day to overthrow you.
    Your knowledge of the gospel will allow you to find texts ordering, and encouraging your
    followers to love poverty, like “Happier are the poor because they will inherit the heaven” and, “It’s
    very difficult for the rich to enter the kingdom of God.” You have to detach from them and make
    them disrespect everything which gives courage to affront us. I make reference to their Mystic
    System and their war fetish – warfare protection – which they pretend not to want to abandon, and
    you must do everything in your power to make it disappear.
    Your action will be directed essentially to the younger ones, for they won’t revolt when the
    recommendation of the priest is contradictory to their parent’s teachings. The children have to learn
    to obey what the missionary recommends, who is the father of their soul. You must singularly insist
    on their total submission and obedience, avoid developing the spirit in the schools, teach students to
    read and not to reason. There, dear patriots, are some of the principles that you must apply. You will
    find many other books, which will be given to you at the end of this conference. Evangelize the
    niggers so that they stay forever in submission to the white colonialists, so they never revolt against
    the restraints they are undergoing. Recite every day – “Happy are those who are weeping because
    the kingdom of God is for them.”

    Letter from King Leopold II of Belgium to Colonial Missionaries, 1883 2
    Convert always the blacks by using the whip. Keep their women in nine months of
    submission to work freely for us. Force them to pay you in sign of recognition-goats, chicken or
    eggs-every time you visit their villages. And make sure that niggers never become rich. Sing every
    day that it’s impossible for the rich to enter heaven. Make them pay tax each week at Sunday mass.
    Use the money supposed for the poor, to build flourishing business centres. Institute a confessional
    system, which allows you to be good detectives denouncing any black that has a different
    consciousness contrary to that of the decision-maker. Teach the niggers to forget their heroes and to
    adore only ours. Never present a chair to a black that comes to visit you. Don’t give him more than
    one cigarette. Never invite him for dinner even if he gives you a chicken every time you arrive at
    his house.
    “The above speech which shows the real intention of the Christian missionary journey in
    Africa was exposed to the world by Mr. Moukouani Muikwani Bukoko, born in the Congo in 1915,
    and who in 1935 while working in the Congo, bought a second hand Bible from a Belgian priest
    who forgot the speech in the Bible. – Dr. Chiedozie Okoro
    We should note:
    1] that all missionaries carried out, and still carry out, that mandate. We are only lucky to
    have found King Leopold’s articulation of the aim of all Christian imperialist missionaries to Africa.
    2] Even the African converts who today manage the older churches in Africa (the priests,
    bishops, Archbishops, Cardinals etc of the Roman and Protestant sects), and especially also those
    who evangelize Born-Again Christianity, still serve the same mandate. Which is why they
    demonize African gods and Anglicize African names, and drop the names of African deities which
    form part of African names; and still attack and demolish the African shrines that have managed to
    survive, e.g. Okija.
    3] Those Africans who voluntarily converted to Christianity before the colonial conquest
    such as Affonso I of the BaKongo in the 15th century probably did not discern the purpose of the
    brand of Christianity that was supplied to them. Which was probably why they fell easy prey to the
    missionaries and the white traders and pirates who followed them.
    But their Japanese counterparts probably did discern the game, even without access to some
    version of Leopold’s letter. But even if the Japanese Shoguns did not intuit what Leopold makes
    explicit, they clearly realized the danger of Japanese converts to Christianity forming a fifth column
    within Japanese society and state, a fifth column loyal to their co-religionists in Europe. To rid
    Japan of that danger, in the late 16th century, the Shoguns began their expulsion of Portuguese and
    Spanish missionaries on the grounds that they were forcing Japanese to become Christian, teaching
    their disciples to wreck temples, taking and trading slaves, etc. Then, in 1596, it became clear to the
    Japanese authorities that Christianization had been a prelude to Spanish conquest of other lands; and
    Letter from King Leopold II of Belgium to Colonial Missionaries, 1883 3
    it quickly dawned on them that a fifth column loyal to Rome and controlled by the priests of a
    foreign religion was a clear and present danger to the sovereignty of a newly unified Japan. Soon
    after, the persecution and suppression of Japanese Christians began. Early in the 17th century,
    sensing the danger from a creed that taught obedience to foreign priests rather than the Japanese
    authorities, all missionaries were ordered to leave and all Japanese were ordered to register at the
    Buddhist temples. When Japanese Christians took part in a rebellion, foreign priests were executed,
    the Spanish were expelled and Japanese Christians were forbidden to travel abroad. After another
    rebellion, largely by Christians, was put down, the Japanese Christians were suppressed and their
    descendants were put under close state surveillance for centuries thereafter. In the 1640s all
    Japanese suspected of being Christians were ruthlessly exterminated. Thus did Japan, by 1650, save
    itself from the first European attempt to mentally subvert, conquer and colonize it.
    4] The African captives who were taken abroad and enslaved, and the Africans at home after
    the European conquest, having already been forcibly deprived of their autonomy, were in no
    political position to resist Christianization. Thus the Christianity still practised in all of the African
    American diaspora, just as that in the African homeland since the start of the 20th century,
    continues to carry out the Leopoldian mandate.
    Hence, for example, whereas the White Born-Agains of the USA, when in the US Navy
    ships in WWII, sang:
    “Praise the Lord,
    And pass the ammunition,” the attitude of African Born-Again converts today is best
    summed up as:
    “Praise the Lord,
    And lie down for the manna.”
    Thanks to a century or more of this Leopold-mandated missionary mind control, African
    Christians are not an activist, self-helping, economically engaged, politically resolute, let alone
    militant bunch. Hence their putting up with all manner of mistreatment and exploitation by their
    misrulers, white and black. The most they are disposed to do to their misrulers is to admonish them
    to “Fear God!” – as one protester’s miserable placard read in last week’s Lagos demonstration
    against the latest of the murderous fuel price hikes by the OBJ Misgovernment. The idea of an
    uprising to tame their misrulers is alien to the religiously opiated frame of mind of the Nigerians.
    5] The lesson in the contrast between an Africa that the Christian missionaries brainwashed
    and subverted, and a Japan where this brainwashing and subversion was forcibly prevented, is stark
    and clear. What then must Africans of today begin to do to save themselves from brainwashing by
    their White World enemies here on earth? – That is the question
