After A Successful Secession In Kenya, What Would Be Next

Published

on

After beefed up secession talks in the country in all communication platforms, as a nation we’ve portrayed a picture of Discomfort and Resistance. It all began long ago since Kibaki era, back in 1998,  when Kibaki leader of opposition against Daniel Moi had proposed secession plan with his Central Kenya legislators counterparts on the basis that, “A government that kills her people, discriminates her people along tribal lines has no moral authority to Govern them”. He had suggested formation of “Central Republic of Kenya” that was to include Nakuru, Laikipia, Meru, Embu, The five Central Kenya Counties and Nairobi. Hon Kihika Kimani was to be the mobilizer of the Army troops.

Former President His Excellency Mwai Kibaki

Today 19years later it has revived back in a new phase and a bill has been presented before legal authorities for scrutiny. Lately, an Opposition legislator and an Advocate by profession Hon. Peter Kaluma had tabled a Secession Bill before IEBC for perusal. Below is a summary:

The MP states in the bill that successive regimes have violated the national values and principles of governance as set out in Article 10 of the Constitution.

  1. He accuses successive governments of entrenching ethnic discrimination and exclusion, injustice in public service and in distribution of natural resources. He notes that important appointments remain a preserve of just a few, that the national budget is skewed to benefit a few groups/communities/regions and that all other regions are marginalized and rendered mere tax payers.
  2. He accuses the current regime led by President Uhuru Kenyatta of undermining devolution and concentrating power and resources in the national government.
  3. He also reasons that previous regimes have captured the state and hold hostage and weaken parliament, commissions and independent offices in a bid to retain political and economic power.
  4. He also accuses the government of political assassinations, manipulation of ethnic census and voter register, flagrant rigging of elections and suppression of other groups/communities/regions not seen to be regime-friendly.

    Member of Parliament Hon.Peter Kaluma

After indepth Evaluation,i came and like many others have come to the reality that Secession talks aren’t priority but an option among many other more avenues by opposition to pinch out disgracefully rogue Jubilee Government from power.

Firstly, following causative agents of Self-Determination precisely in Kenyan situation and like many other victims of this revolution of Secession, it has always been Government oppression, purely politics which has been fueled by; Tribalism, Anarchy, Autocracy, Despotism and Self-Ego. Government’s all inclusivitiness are just hullabaloo words without action. At a point when a caretaker government profiles her citizens as ‘militia’ for boycotting pre-determined shambolic Electoral exercise results is a wake up call to the reality of Exclusivity. Such Government would deliberately attack such people in the name of encountering ‘militia’ in a genocidal mission to silence the majority. This is absolutely Terrorism Radicalization in place.

Secondly, the Big man syndrome is catalysing secession which is contagious. We’ve rarely or ignored talks about products of secession thereafter.Obvious Aftermath lyrics has always been bloodshed and death of innocent vigilantes but in the long run besides bloodshed and death of these oppressed, like i said Secession syndrome is contagious, after 30years or more to come in those ‘new’ Republics that would be formed,tribal politics will again invade, superiority and inferiority measures, agreement and disagreement,Government and opposition. Some tribes will get dissatisfied again and would want to again withdraw.

Ofcourse a Government won’t run without opposition inclusion for a complete Ecosystem. Opposition will be formed by the same people who had pushed for these reforms then will have divided because they feel some inequality, fraudulent system and corrupt government and one time will call for Self-Determination. If Raila is the Big Man, thereafter secession he won’t rule forever and many more Big men like him will emerge and will also want the same, to go the direction. It will be an endless war of secession.

If at all Secession succeeds, the Government in that Republic should make no similar mistakes because we will have Life Cycle of Secessions which is a show of wavy Leadership.

Recommendation

Structure of an All-Inclusive Government formed by UNCOMPROMISED individuals Willing fully and Legally elected by the People might be a better option for the sake of such crisis but unfortunately this is like an illusion in Africa Continent as we have been umblically coded and have unconditional romance towards compromised individuals.

Every Citizen must feel satisfied and catered for, resources equally distributed and system set well.

Sameer Group’s Naushad Merali Impersonation Saga Of President Uhuru Opens A Pandora Box

Published

on

In what seems like a well planned out plot of people who’ve studied the system well to know how it runs and who to target a can of worms has been ripped out.

Merali whom has had close ties with almost all administrations since Kenyatta era, was targeted by the now famous group of seven individuals in what has turned out to be an historic scamming.

On January 14 recieved a call from the ‘President’ about a tender, the tycoon had no reason to doubt he caller was not the head of state. The caller perfectly mimicked his voice.

Merali and the ‘President’ exchanged pleasantries on the phone, then got down to business.

The ‘President informed Merali of a state tender he wanted the well-known businessman to enjoy. But there was a catch. The ‘head of state’ asked Merali for a small favour before he could embark on the lucrative contract, Sh10 million in advance for facilitation. That presumably was a trifle compared to the tender itself.

It happened that Merali was outside the country but that wasn’t gonna stop the show given his appetite, he took the risk and tadked his financial officer to process the facilitation fee which at this point we will call it as it is, a bribe.

So elaborate was the plan that the ‘President’ sent his men to pickup the cash from Merali’s office in Mombasa road. Sharply dressed men arrived with full Police escort and high range cars to clear any touch of doubt. They were given the Sh.10M.

So here’s what I pick from the story that Mr. Merali and President Uhuru are obviously not new to each other and probably have had other personal engagements together beforehand for Merali to quickly give in to the mimicked voice.

The suspects didn’t target Merali randomly and using uhuru’s voice randomly, this was elaborate, they must have had an insider information in order to be able to exploit the weak links. Sh10M is not a few coins that Merali would just give easily without solid assurance like the president himself collecting the money. The level of confidence Merali had on the ‘President’ could easily point at a possible previous and similar engagement.

It also can mean that, there’s an elaborate ring including Statehouse officials who target businessmen and defraud in President’s name. Infact, Police investigations are exploring this possibility.

The group has links to State House, Harambee House and other powerful offices which they use to execute their swindles.

The scammers lure rich business people with the promises of restricted tenders mainly involving the supply of goods.

To win the trust of potential bidders, the fraudsters in collusion with government officials and police officers forge documents on letterhead and invite their targets to government offices to sign fake documents. This opens up the Pandora box of how tenderprenuers enjoy privileges from the state officials and how money exchange hands to win contracts.

Merali should be arrested on arrival at the airport from wherever he’s now comfortably hiding to answer on bribery and I’m certain investigators can extract more information from him to catch those in the web that is if they’re serious to take this case to the end.

It also opens up a box of lies that the so called flamboyant ‘businessmen’ make their money, most of the suspects arrested live large, they’ve enjoyed positive press before. This isn’t the first time scamming case to hit the airwaves, it’s still fresh in minds about yet another flamboyant ‘businessman’ Jared Otieno who was also in the spotlight for fraud.

Uhuru Must Replace The Rejected Ambassadors By Host Country With Competent Kenyans

Published

on

Ambassadorial posts like many other parastatal appointments have been largely awarded on political weighing as opposed to merits. International relations is an important aspect of any country’s growth that’s why serious country’s only assign career diplomats to such duties.

However, in Kenya such posts more often are awarded to political rejects who’re given the positions as reward for sycophancy. It now emerges that seven ambassadors of Kenya have been denied accreditation by their host countries given their tainted records in Kenya.

Though the government has been trying behind the scenes to resolve the unprecedented diplomatic development on the postings, it would appear Russia, Turkey, Austria, China, Malaysia, Namibia and Qatar have rejected the new envoys.

And six months after being vetted by Parliament and consequently appointed by President Uhuru Kenyatta, the seven; Ndegwa Muhoro (Malaysia), Hassan Wario (Austria), Benjamin Langat (Namibia), Johnson Kimani Ondieki (Turkey), Richard Ekai (Russia), Sarah Serem (China) and Paddy Ahenda (Qatar) have yet to report to their foreign duty stations.

Other appointments said to have run into the rare diplomatic headwinds include that of ambassador to the European Union (EU) Phyllis Kandie, who was later replaced by former Cabinet colleague Prof Jacob Kaimenyi.

This is a clear manifest that the so called vetting processes conducted in Kenya are just a farce and that other countries prioritize integrity. It still baffles me how someone like Ndegwa Muhoro successfully went through the vetting process despite having an immensely controversial record while he was the DCI.

Here’s a man who was at the center of extrajudicial killings including unresolved murders of many including businessman Jacob Juma whom many believe was assassinated by the state and IEBC’s ICT Director Chris Musando. Not to mention a heap of corruption accusations labeled against him including the land grabbing of Tatu City.

It therefore doesn’t come as a surprise that Muhoro’s former position as Directorate of Criminal Investigations, might have worked against his appointment as ambassador to Malaysia.

Apparently, Malaysian government has blocked his appointment citing his alleged blighted record during his tenure at Mazingira House, the DCI headquarters.

During his vetting process by the National Assembly, Muhoro whose first appointment to Israel as an envoy did not materialise, was confronted with allegations of spate of extra-judicial killings and unsolved high-profile murders during his tenure. Malaysian government under the new tough Prime Minister Mahathir Bin Mohamad blocked the former sleuth’s ambassadorial job.

Another crook who doesn’t deserve to hold any public office is Hassan Wario, the Former Sports CS Wario’s appointment may have run into trouble after he was charged together with Olympics legend Kipchoge Keino over the Sh55 million Rio Olympic graft scandal. His case is still pending in court.

Honestly, these are the peiple expected to represent the face of Kenya in the host countries and they walk in with taunted images? What will this say about Kenya? Malaysia for instance has been a safe hum for many corrupt Kenyans who hide their wealth and then you purport to fight corruption and assign a more corrupt individual like Muhoro to represent the country?

The President Must now live by his words, he recently said that none of those implicated in corrupt cases would be allowed to occupy public offices. This is the perfect time for Uhuru to cut links with his corrupt friends. We have able Kenyans who’re experienced diplomats to fill those voids. More time must not be wasted.

Muhoro and his group of unworthy choices must be immediately discharged to retirement. The country won’t stop running because a few monkeys fell off the tree. President Must now prove a point on what he really stands for.

Why Wilkins Fadhili Will Get Away With Everything

Published

on

Wilkins Fadhili.

The 2013 block buster ‘wolf of wallstreet’ was a hit that aimed to caution the young and money obsessed individuals on quick and dirty tricks to earn money. Instead, it served as a blue print to escape poverty by any means. Taking advantage of grey areas and loop holes in the constitutions, many young and old people learnt tricks on how to fake it and make it across the globe. Faking lavish lifestyles, talking like super hustlers and posing to inspire the young and gullible.

Survey shows that out of three young people, one is most likey to be living under pressure to present themselves as having a ‘perfect’ life on social media. This is what the coning pair, Wilkins Odinga Fadhili and Ruth Ambogo took advantage of. Wilkins chose to be a fake brand strategist, developer and his bae, Ruth Ambogo who came to some sort of limelight through Daughters of Raila campaign team was posing as a successful young lady, below 25 years of age. What she succeeded on is yet to be known.

Ambogo has been taking advantage of the unsuspecting young people, posing as one within their age bracket who has made it. She has organised seminars and workshops, coned young and extended to rip on githeri media that does no background check. If she was not elsewhere coning the youth in the company of Fadhili, she would be the slay in television interviews slotted between soap operas or naija movies because that’s when many gullible kids in their late teens and mid tweenties are watching. ‘Motivating’ and talking as one who made through hardwork but what did she make it on? nothing but fakery.

Ambogo and Fadhili were enroute to enjoying the heroic status like that of a successful athlete, a musician or business person. She was nearly becoming a female Myles Monroe. Only that her motivation was fake and in her head she was living her dream, mid day dreams. Both of them were nominated for funny awards as the most promising under 25s. Are they under 25? Ambogo smears anything in her face to seal pot holes and wrinkes to atlease resemble a young person but even a mad man will tell you that that bae is over thirty and counting.

Back at home they were having living together and having sex, which is allowed if anything they are two very old people thinking of their 40s. With age advancing and world changing, it’s like Wilkins was running short of tricks to keep the coning business a float and you know romance without finance is not easy with a slay as your bae. Their thing was hitting rock bottom, reports were doing rounds that Wilkins was moving from one girl’s house to the next. Sources close to the couple revealed to K.I that Ambogo was getting tired of Wilkins but still had a feeling that his coning tricks would make a big killing. 

He was under duress, people he had coned or borrowed money from were blowing his phones, he was not landing on new preys, the ‘business’ was literally bad for him and like any other slay, Ambogo was becoming impatient. When Fadhili’s trick to con Larry Madowo (a journalist) failed and Larry bursted him, Ambogo took that as an opportune time to distance herself from her man. She wasn’t lucky though, netizens were on her with water tight eveidence that tied them together. 

First coning couple of 2019. Look at where faking has put them, if these guys were real, their friendship would stand the test of time and hardship. No law bars one from being nominated for awards, you actually create your own, nomiated yourself and even award yourself. They faked it to this level. With conversations over millions in public while back at home they argued over tomatoes and secretly went through each others phones. Trust was at its all time low.

Ambogo was faker,  distancing herself when Wilkins was bursted is why, “Fake friends are like shadows: always near you at your brightest moments, but nowhere to be seen at your darkest hour. True friends are like stars, you don’t always see them but they are always there.” – Habeeb Akande.
