Kenyans don’t pretend about Ethinicity like Rwanda does!


Justice Philomena Mwilu

By W.B. KYIJOMANYI Via the UAH forum,
Folks:

The next big fish to watch is the DCJ Justice Philomena Mwilu. If Mr. Rotich and Dr Kamau Thugge can be arrested, she too will be arrested because DCI and DPP have enough evidence against her. She must be thinking about what next.

In Kenya where ethnicity is currency, UK opted for Minister Yattani, a Rendile from Marsabit to be acting CS. He then named a substantive treasury sectary, Dr Monzi Muia from Meru.

Ethnicity is dominant , make no mistake about that . We cannot pretend like Kagame that there are no Hutus and Tutsis but only Rwandese. Nonsense. why. Nothing even a genocide wipes away people’s identities.

And in Africa ethnicity is central.

I am not sure about Uganda but in Kenya there is home coming for Mps and Cabinet secretaries and other senior officials. Homecoming parting is intended to celebrate the achievements of their sons or daughter. Thus, such positions are owned by their respective communities so that if in trouble and facing the law, the community comes out to defend their own.

I think it is there in Uganda too. Is it not what the father of the murdered bar owner was alluding too with his sensational claims that his on was murdered because of his tribe?

Do not worry about me, I am urbane.

Kenya’s Ruto’s biggest weakness are his advisers


Deputy President William Ruto


By WBK Via UAH forum
Ruto’s biggest weakness are his advisers. They shoot from the hip without reflecting. Three in particular stand out, the semi illiterate Oscar Sudi-they say he forged his academic papers and is yet to make his maiden speech in parliament. Then senator Murkomen the majority leader, who called the DPP charges a charade, and then showed up in court the following day to represented some of the suspects.

Btw, Mr. Henry Rotich could not instruct him as did the other top kalenjin suspects. They opted for Kioko Kilukumi sited by Katwa Kigen, tested and capable lawyers. I recognize you would prefer I leave out the ethnic identities but believe me most Kalenjin big wigs opt to instruct one of their own, Mr. Katwa Kigen. He has too much work at the moment.

The third is senator Cheruyiot who speaks too much. WSR needs some mature politicians to guide him. To chill out most times.

And finally, MPs and senators from marginalized Northern communities under the leadership of Hon Duale the house majority leader came out today to thank UK for naming one of their own and urging him to confirm him as the substantive finance minister.

But there is word that Dr Kituyi could return to kenya for the same.

PAUL KAGAME IS URGING AFRICA LEADERS TO IGNORE IMF WARNING AND GO AHEAD TO IMPLEMENT AFRICA FREE TRADE AGREEMENT


Kagame Paul

In May this year (2019), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) warned that African countries could face revenue shortfalls if the continent starts the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) as planned.

The IMF maintained that, although the agreement will boost trade on the continent, it will negatively affect earnings and employment opportunities in some sectors of the member countries’ economy.

In a quick rebuttal, President Paul Kagame has urged his colleague African leaders to stay focus in the implementation of the policy since that will be in the positive interest of the African continent and the African people.

“It is important that Africa gives the necessary considerations to the views and opinions by external entities and ‘development partners’, it is also more important at the same time that Africa become aware of what we want for ourselves, pursue what is good for the continent, and defend what is necessary for our collective development.” He noted that a lot of considerations went into the African Continental Free Trade Agreement before it was agreed upon by member state.

Mr Kagame made these expressions on Friday at a tri-partite meeting attended by himself, President João Lourenço of Angola, and their DR Congo counterpart and host Felix-Antoine Tshisekedi on the side-lines of his father’s national mourning ceremony in DR Congo capital Kinshasa.

Kenya’s Onyango Oloo played a role that birthed Kenya’s Second Liberation


By Edward Pojim’ via Ugandans at Heart (UAH) Community

Former political detainee and human rights activist Onyango Oloo. Mr Oloo died on Sunday, June 16, 2019 in Nakuru


Folks;

KENYA: Human rights activist, writer and former political detainee,Onyango Oloo, was one of the outspoken university students, who suffered immensely following the 1982 attempted coup. He would spend years in detentions. And when finally released, Onyango Oloo was too physically and emotionally destroyed to continue normal life.

Then he contracted HIV, which only compounded his misery. Onyango Oloo retreated to his home village along Siaya / Kakamega border. It was from here that he had traveled to Nakuru over the weeks, to pick up a few books by Miguna Miguna. He wouldn’t make back alive.

History will say he too, played a role that birthed Kenya’s Second Liberation. As Number Two to Titus Adongusi, the secretary-general of the national students’ union, Onyango Oloo was the face of student protestations against the brutal regime of Daniel arap Moi.

Yes, war will happen if you cross the border” Kagame threatens Uganda


By: Seruga Titus

It’s on record Kagame’s assassins have crossed the Uganda border on many occasions as kidnapped plus killing Rwandese Refugees, Uganda in return has arrested all informers and those involved in assassinations, some have been deported and others are still being interrogated by security.

At no single occasion has Uganda ever run an operation in Rwanda even when it’s aware that fugitives like ACP Baroza are hiding in Rwanda, even when Uganda is aware that Rwanda is funding political groups and rebel groups like ADF, even when Rwanda attacked and killed Ugandan Soldiers in the Congo, even when Rwandan forces crossed and killed two civilians in Uganda recently.

Uganda is further aware of the assassination of very important persons in Kampala to create insecurity, Uganda is aware of killings in Wakiso of innocent women by individuals trained and funded by Rwanda these individuals have since been arrested and confessed, Uganda is aware of the greater Masaka insecurity caused by individuals funded and hiding in Masaka and finally Uganda is aware of a well approved and funded project to assassinate the president.

On occasion has Uganda made any plans to attack Rwanda, however the security forces are aware of advance plans by chest-thumping Kagame aka Pilato who plans a victim while he is busy planning an assault on Kabale.

Don’t ask me how this will end but I can assure you Kagame will fall if he goes ahead with his 2021 plans. 4 million of Rwandese are ready to fight him out they just need a strong man to help them achieve that dream.

This post is in response to General Kagame’s comments while in Brussels recently, he decided to say this Brussels well knowing Belgium is watching his dirty Games in the Region.

Southern Sudan and Somalia wars are like a business to Museveni and his family!


By Annet Kobusingye via UAH forum

Sudan is like M7 second home. He creates wars and sponsors them in order to remain big. This is how he benefits from.somemof the wars:

1.His family members are exporting food. Many business men were hoodwinked to supply food to similar place like the first family when they took food to Sudan but their trailers,cars and food packages were confiscated and drivers arrested. Their money wasted and these business men in kla today they are crying over their money that was never paid. That is how he weakened some rich men in Uganda.

2. Some Ugandan business peopple were robbed or killed in Suddan as they attempted to follow their goods in hope they would recover their vehicles.

3. Keep northern region distabilised with guns in circulation.Many refugees entered northern region with them. It’s has been difficult to separate a refugee from a rebel. The local in another region fear refugees more than anything because they are armed. Who is allowing them to enter with guns? the M7 regime. Whom do the refugees salute? Museveni.

4. In times of elections,so many refugees enter through this route of Sudan,they register and vote. No body should deceive you that they don’t vote. They do vote for M7. If you don’t believe my story go to isingiro quotelybd ask the local in Isingiro mbarara District,where so many refugees havebeen captured and you be shocked with details you will find.

5. Makes money from inflated numbers of refugees in the country and gets more donor funding which he channels into his private businesses.

From such deals he cannot allow a war to come to an end.

Now on realising that people have discovered his game, he is so quick to arrange a peace talk deal Sudan.

Another example was Somalia. He has been putting it that the war in Somalia is so bad and the donors pumped lots of money for him.

He once surprised the Anite world when he returned empty COFFINS at Entebbe international and presented them to cameras.Up to now no body has ever been hurried nor printed in news papers to have died or families to have have r received their dead ones…..

National parks have been turned into bidding sports for the regime. Lions have been poisoned and unknown people placed in those national parks.Nobody knows where these people come from nor their motives.The tourism indutry is headed by an NRM man who has no backbone to ask what has happened to our lions.The entire national parks is covered with long horned cows now day.

Kenya should just revert back to manual counting at the polling station!


Protests in Kenya follow election hacking claim

By George Okello via UAH

I will never trust computer managed elections in Africa. These systems depend on the integrity of the individuals managing them. I can see in the IT network we use here in the UK for the NHS. We workers are just very tiny operators behind a screen connected to a very huge and complicated cyber and digital jungle- there are only a handful of people who really know how the system works and how to use, manipulate the data it contains and makes available for staff as well as for public consumption. These few key people, located at its strategic nerve centres, can do what they want with it. No one can stop them.

Digitally managed elections work in the developed countries because of two factors:

1. The staff managing elections are generally non-partisan civil servants with undoubted integrity and with no personal interest in massaging the results of the elections. Compare to Africa where money can buy anyone who is located at a key point in the delivery and tallying process.
2. The moral compass in the developed countries, the difference between right and wrong, has very little comparision with what that in Africa where people carry their biases to their jobs and will not hesitate to massage a situation if it benefits his preferred candidate- and will not see anything wrong with it..

You already know for a fact every Elections Commission in Africa is appointed by the government in power, and its primary purpose is to manage the process so that the appointing authority wins. Most Elections commissions act just like an appendage of the regime or the ruling party and do not even pretend to be non-partisan. Just look at the IEBC, even before the elections. The opposition had to take it again and again to the courts, even before the elections, to get it to clean up its system- a process it vehemently resisted.

The IEBC was a partisan agency from start to finish. Its Chairman, Chebukatti was appointed by Jomo Kenyatta just 7 months before the elections with a brief to deliver victory, but to make it uncontroversial and as smooth as as possible, using digital computer generated skullduggery. Unfortunately for him, his running dogs or field officers did not know how to use computers, and were so inept at cheating even a child could detect their scams.

Kenyatta should have hired foreign computer experts from London- the 16-25 year old hackers who are running rings around,and playing havoc with,computer networks and businesses here in the UK, and costing companies millions of pounds to protect themselves.

I think Kenya should just revert back to manual counting at the polling station and submission of the results to the tallying centres by hand. That would deliver a more credible result, although it would take more time. Or else, commission an independent western polling agency to manage the process.

When the first signs of rigging surfaced in Kenya’s 2017 elections!

If New York Times could apologize for the rush to judgment about Odinga and the election, why wouldn’t we be wrong to blame the Observers?

ODM and Raila Odinga made a legal mistake in 2013 by concentrating on the ‘Numbers’ instead of the ‘Proces‎s’ of how those numbers were acquired.

This whole ‎snafu arose because the IEBC decided to reinvent the process during the transmission of the results.

There is no mystery to the process because it is well defined and not in dispute. The first collection of the data is collected through form 34A, which is at the polling station. It’s important to note that the results on 34A are final and cannot be altered once signed by the polling agents.

Then it’s where the 34B’s which compiles data from all polling stations in a particular constituency are ‎collected.

The two documents are then transmitted simultaneously to Bomas of Kenya. If you notice, IEBC was announcing results without the 34A’s.Some of the results were being announced while counting was still going on in many of those polling stations‎. So where was IEBC getting its numbers from?????

And then there is the business of Military Intelligence going native‎.Someone needs to go to jail for all this monkey business!

Rejected votes disappearing in “thin air” was extremely relevant.While counting was going on, the IEBC tallying systems publicly showed spoiled votes of over 400k votes. At the end of counting, spoiled votes “miraculously” went down to 80k votes.

The main question is how and why‎????

The Judges question on ‘Stray ballots’ which the IEBC and Jubilee lawyers failed to answer may point out what may have happened.Those votes and ballots were moved to benefit someone and take one guess as to who could that be? Listen to the summation of NASA lead lawyer Otiende Amollo, on Youtube, very carefully and all the details of discrepancies between the 34A and 34B’s are presented by Constituency.

All the things I describe were a result of IEBC being taken to court by activist, Maina Kia(sp?).Maina Kia, is a Kikuyu, and is considered a traitor by his tribe.

IEBC was forced to adopt those procedures I describe by the High Court but as you can see, they tried to change things midway.

My advice to NASA is that they should go to court again and lock down any loose ends‎.I can almost bet unlike the last time, they will find a more compliant IEBC.

By the way,Uhuru Kenyatta is not as nice people make out to be.No one gets to the top by being nice‎.Both UK and WSR are Moi’s orphans.

The Kenyan media generally did a good job during the presidential campaigns


BY W.B. KYIJOMANYI VIA UAH FORUM

Dr Wandia Njoya


Dr. Wandia Njoya is an associate professor at Daystar University in Nairobi is the daughter of Reverend Timothy Njoya. I have seen her speak before on Citizen TV and is passionate about social justice . Let me just point out the irony of Kenyan civil society-read neo colonial agents-now complaining about the actions of their funders. Part of what has kept me away from this UAH forum has something to do with investigating civil society in Africa. It is a massive study by a group of f us whose findings we are compiling in a book. Stay tuned.

Anne Kiguta, arguably, one of the best news readers in Kenya


Let me point out for the benefit of UAH readers that NASA actually had two manifestos. When Dr Ndii, NASA’s chief economic adviser, was confronted on Citizen TV by Anne Kiguta arguably, one of the best in Kenya, he blew it when Ms Kiguta (again for the benefit of readers Ms. Kiguta is rumoured to be romantically linked to Jomo Gecaga , President Uhuru Nephew and his personal assistant) showed her the other manifesto. Dr Ndii disowned it that he had not ben party to it. well the other manifesto had been prepared by Jimmy Wanjigi -he was NASA’s chief financier-and his NASA team under the lead of lawyer Willis Otieno. After Kiguta’s interview, RAO acknowledged that indeed NASA had two documents.

Ms Kiguta was armed with NASA’s two manifestos. Actually it was Ndii who was surprised that NASA had prepared two documents one against his back. After that interview,RAO himself confirmed Ms. Kiguta’s document as genuine. You know that most of the civil society types John Githongo, George Kegoro, Maina Kiai, were working for NASA. That second manifesto shocked them because it was prepared under the guidance of tender entrepreneur Jimmy Wanjigi, so civil society groups felt betrayed. Poor Ndii.

Ms. Kiguta is one of the best and even brightest of the Kenyan TV personalities, who never suffers fools. the other really good and sharp presenters are KTN’s Aisha Mwiru, Sophia Wanuna and especially Michelle Ngele who is very sharp.

People: NASA sharpened their blades. To see and hear them lash out at International observers and even the media with Orengo calling on NASA readers to boycott Daily Nation and Nation TV is hilarious. The same Daily Nation that has given space for NASA adviser to write regular columns: Ndii, George Kegoro and Maina Kiai among others. Now suddenly daily nation is o be boycotted. How sad.

The Kenyan media generally did a good job during the presidential campaigns. One mistake was how the presidential debates were prepared. It was wrong and very unethical for the media houses to contract Katherine Openda-famously Nyayo’s mpango wa kando-who was working on RAO’s campaign to arrange the debate. That is why UK boycotted because intelligence revealed the selected presidential debate moderators, known NASA sympathisers intended to humiliate UK. He boycotted and RAO got 90 minutes of free airtime. Funny, many talking heads claimed that UK would pay heavily for skipping the debate. Alas, even with 90 minutes of free TV publicity NASA still lost!.

This is why I think Raila Odinga was Rigged out again!



BY MOSES OCEN NEKYON VIA UAH FORUM

You know that elections, especially in Africa‎, how one wins or loses an election depends on what you do or don’t do before and after the event.

Here are a few of my views that will provide a clearer picture on the above point;

1) Prior to the August 8th elections, KPMG did an audit of the voter register and found over 1 Million dead voters. This audit was not done voluntarily but was a result of street protests.

The question again is why would there be 1 Million dead voters in a new voter register???? The specific number was actually 1,037,260;

2) Tendering of who prints the ballot papers is Classic case of how things are done in Kenya. There was a huge fight that ended up in court that you are praising here‎, where the Court threw out the case over the objections of NASA;

3) Well it didn’t take long for NASA original fears about the firm given the tender to print to come to fruition. The IEBC in conjunction with the firm, decided unilaterally decided to print an extra 1.2 Million ballots.

Coincidence????

4) ‎In order to protect its votes, NASA tallying centers and imported IT experts and volunteers, from Canada, USA and Ghana.

Is it a coincidence that on the weekend before the polls, the police deported all the NASAIT experts, who built and were supposed to man NASA’s tallying centers and prevented‎ the ones from Ghana from even getting out of the airport after they landed;

5) Related to the above, while the deportations were happening, members of the flying squad raided NASA’s main tallying center in Westlands and destroyed vital computers and carried off vital pieces of the mainframe.

After the elections, IEBC asked‎ NASA to provided proof of its allegations, and when they(NASA) sat down and started collecting whatever evidence they could with their remaining tallying center, the Flying Squad pounced again.

Coincidence????

5) ‎ Two weeks before the elections, the Head of ICT, IEBC, one Chris Musando, is “disappears.” The likes of Moses Kuria, start claiming they know where he is and that he(Musando) was only hiding. All hell broke loose when they found his body and Moses Kuria, with his wild theories shut up.

Well a funny thing started to happen,‎ when vote counting started; Chris Musando, started signing in……

6) Add the almost astronomical 400k “spoiled ‎votes”…..

All the above did not just happen without a reason, so don’t misjudge those who are silent. Add the extra ballots printed ballots, dead voters and the spoiled voters and one sees a lot of “coincidences.”
