Published

President Uhuru And Raila

London Political Summit this year will honour Kenya’s former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta for their political sportsmanship and adherence to the principle of political tolerance. This follows their Peace Accord Handshake which ended political acrimony and intolerance after Kenya’s election in 2017 which had threatened to divide the country and increase of violence.

These two great men themselves have a long rich history behind them, as both their parents were the founding fathers of Kenyan political and democratic history. It is a great privilege to identify with their latest leadership style which infers immense political maturity.

The summit will be looking at the narrow and broad concepts of political-will to act, and the public- will’s power to react, in the very context of an individual leader, or collective leadership actions in critical political decision-making in governance.

Away from being awarded, London Political Summit has created a special award known as “Raila- Uhuru African Peace Accord Award” which will be given annually to any African leader who embraces peace, values democracy and exhibits high level of political maturity and tolerance.

The awardees will go through strict criteria and vetting. Some of the criteria used will be political tolerance, people-oriented leadership, political accountability and political morality among other vital issues in governance.

Others nominated for London Political Summit are: Rt. Hon. Dr Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga MP, Speaker of Uganda parliament, Rt Hon. Diane Abbott MP UK Parliament, Prof. John Raftery Vice Chancellor, London Metropolitan University, Her Excellency Ambassador Dr Josephine Ojiambo, Former Secretary General of the Commonwealth,
On list as well, Her Excellency Ambassador Mrs Mmasekgoa Masire-Mwamba, Served two terms, from 2008 to 2014, as Deputy Secretary-General for the Commonwealth.

“The only motive that can keep politics pure is the motive of doing good for one’s country and its people”. Henry Ford. And to add on this Godson Azu Director of London Political Summit says:
“The paradigm shift in political thoughts and actions around the world in most recent years, has to resonate with the idea that nations should govern themselves, free from external interferences, that defies super-globalization and its current burning issues such as; climate change, disarmament, genetic engineering, artificial intelligence, terrorism, national security, and sovereignty, which requires the attention of both domestic and national politics.”

How Sameer Group Of Companies Was Defrauded Sh80M By Conmen Posing As President Uhuru In A Corrupt Deal

Published

on

Sameer Africa Group chairman Naushad Merali.

Conmen posing as President Uhuru Kenyatta have defrauded a Nairobi businessman of Sh80 million pretending that they would award him with state tenders.

Detectives from the DCI Special Crime Prevention Unit over the weekend arrested seven men believed to be part of the cartel that conned officials from Sameer Group of Companies.

So well organised are the criminals, that they have perfected the art of mimicking the President’s voice to near perfection.

Investigators say the conmen, operate as State House officials.

The caller, who imitates Uhuru and speaks in a voice almost similar to that of the President, tells businessmen of major government works which he asks them to take up.

The ‘fake President’, asks the victim to provide some money for logistical support.

He promises to send some State House officials and other staff from the Interior ministry to the victim’s office to collect the facilitation cash.

Men dressed in expensive suits then arrive in the office of the targeted businessman and introduce themselves as the staff of State House sent by the President to collect cash.

The ‘State House staff’ arrive in high-endvehicles and under police escort. They then collect the cash and disappear.

Highly placed sources familiar with the investigations said rogue police officers from Kilimani police station had been hired to provide security services to the State House imposters.

The con scheme came to light last month after officials from Sameer reportedly wrote to State House seeking an audience with the president over a tender deal.

Shocked State House officials after receiving the letter are said to have contacted the Sameer group official and inquired of the deal between themselves and the ‘fake President Uhuru’.

The matter was reported to the police and officers from the DCI headquarters opened investigations.

Police also impounded three high-endvehicles that include Toyota land cruisers and V8s which the conmen were using.

The arrested men have been identified asJoseph Waswa, Duncan Muchai, Isaac Wajekeche, William Simiyu, David Luganya,Gilbert Kirunja and Anthony Wafula.

Administration Police Constable Joash Ombati who was guarding a bank nearby, boarded a taxi to chase after the suspects.

Ombati receives his promotion.

The Police officer shot in the air forcing the thieves to surrender before he handcuffed them as members of the public watched with many urging him to shoot dead the suspects.

Mr. Ombati remained calm even as a furious mob urged him to shoot and kill.

He managed to recover Sh400,000 which was part of the Sh732,000 that the suspects had stolen from the complainant Mr Amos Charo.

Ombati would then be awarded by Interior CS Matiang’i for his bravery the government was given the heroic AP a Distinguished Service Award in November 2018 barely a month after his commendable work.

That wasn’t the end, Joash Ombati who single-handedly pursued two thugs in Nairobi and recovered KSh 400,000 has just been promoted to the rank of Corporal from being a AP Constable.
