Victims of Kibaki initiated theft

Update: The child shown here is reported to be well and good:

According to Joseph karoki:

Thanks to Reuters Journalist George Phillipas, The child, Brian Solomon Ingozi Mungai has been tracked down and is alive and well!! Brian is living with his relatives in a wooden house in Wakamwa Magumo village, about 45 km (27 miles) west of Nairobi. He is  Fourteen-months-old and is the son of Jeremiah, a Kikuyu.The child escaped unhurt when his mother Grace, a Luyha, was shot dead in front of him during post-election violence in a nearby town.

Everybody knows the origin of the problem in Kenya. And it is obvious ( painfully obvious ) what needs to be done to solve this problem. And i strongly believe that the stolen election was a perfect God-send opportunity for Kenyans to face their dragon and kill it. But alas, we have instead resorted to some blind insistence that there must be another way to apply band-aid to the wound and let everyone get back to normal life. We think, “so what if Kibaki stole the elections and is the president? All we want is for peace to prevail”. ( Well, you are not alone. Even the American ambassador cares nothing for the so called “democracy”-he says there is no need for a re-run, yet he is not calling for Kibaki to step down, meaning, forget the cheating. He seeks a quick fix, that he can go back to “business as usual” and enjoy his lavish lifestyle that he could never have if he were living in the US! Or maybe his statement was meant to fuel the tensions, that the US may have a field day meeting their agendas…)

Now, this is the problem: Kenya is a nation of many nations. Now, only the devil could have devised such a powder keg.

A house divided against itself can not stand –Jesus Christ

Nations have well define characteristics and physically boundaries. The only way you can have n nations existing together in the same space-time continuum is via treaties. Why? Because Nations exists to follow certain distinct agendas, and placed in the same space, these agendas are bound to be at cross purpose with each other. Treaties are the closest “clean ways” that would allow nation A to pursue its goals within the space that nation B lays claims to, and vice versa, without A and B going to war.

Why am i saying this? We all know this. So, why is it that we refuse to do the necessary things?

These are the facts about the geographical space called Kenya:

  • There exists a Kikuyu Nation speaking Gikuyu with an totally Agikuyu agenda
  • There exists a Kalenjin Nation, speaking kalenjin, with a no-Lemindet agenda
  • There exists a Luo nation, speaking dholuo, with a Jo-nam agenda
  • There exists a Maasai nation, speakign maasai, with raching needs..
  • There exists Luhya, Kamba, MijiKenda…….

We all know this.

Fact: These nations have different languages, cultures, beliefs and interests. Why are they all existing within the Kenya space? Did they sign any treaties to the effect? The Kenya constitution? Nonsense. That paperwork only serves the interest of the British and American-educated “tribes” who have and have learnt how to step on their neighbors, without conscience, the same way the British did. What about the 90% or so Kenyans whose lives we happily measure using such terms as “exist on less than $1 day” ?. What agreements did the Kikuyu farmer in El Burgon make with the Kalenjin farmer that enables them to co-exist in the Rift Valley without stepping on each others toes? Where is the agreement that the Maasai signed with the Lords of Flower farmers of Naivasha that takes into account the Maasai need to reach watering holes with their livestock without being electrocuted? ( Ok, so you think it is better to grow flowers and earn billions than to graze cattle on the land? The Maasai does not think so: not a cent of the billions earned in flower exports reach his pockets ).

The stolen election provided an opportune moment for Kenyans to take stock and deal with the issues of the many nations: There was at least a clear divide of who belongs where and who wants what.

( The election stealing-event itself, by the way, goes to show how different the nations can be. To the GEMA-leaning nation, nothing is wrong with such a theft, while to the rest of the nations, theft of such an important national asset is a heinous crime )

This is what should be done. Kenyans should push their leaders in ODM and PNU to formalize the divisions that already exists, and treaties should be drawn now that recognizes the many nations, to enable the harmonious existence of the peoples of the nations of Kenya. And this could be done without unnecessary loss of lives. If we fail to do this, this is what is likely to happen, assuming Kenya does not go the Rwanda way:

If PNU remians in power

  1. Revenge will be swift. Non GEMA ( especially the Kalenjins and the Luos ) will be cut to size. Kalenjin businesses ( Luos and Luhyas have no meaningful businesses) will be starved of credit. The military and the police will be purged of non GEMA elements, especially the Kalenjins
  2. Marginalization will be total ( In fact, “Roads minister” Michuki has already said it will take a very long time to build roads in Nyanza and Western provinces!, meaning, never.)
  3. There will never be a democratic system in Kenya for 1000 years

If ODM gets power

  1. GEMA businesses and civil service will sabotage the ODM government
  2. There may be attempts to marginalize Central Kenya

I consider myself a peace loving fella. But there is a time for peace and a time for storms ( if i may paraphrase Solomon). A time to embrace and a time to push away. There is a time to unite and a time to divide. Kenya is already divided, nobody will miss a formal division.

NOTE:

The fearful middle class. If you keep shouting “peace peace” and get weak knees at this time and Kibaki remains in power, this is what is likely to happen. 30 years from now, when your sons and daughters will be participating in pre-determined elections the Cuban way and Kenya is a failed state like Somalia, you will look back and wish that you had another chance in 2008 make things right: A chance to fight for a democratic system. You will wish that you had another chance to fight for freedom of choice. You will wish that you could take back all the property you protected then, and exchanged it with freedom. You will wish that you had a system that protected every tribe’s interests.

On Kofi Annan: Is he bold enough to suggest the real solution or having stayed at the UN and heard their music so long he forgets what the real issues are? The world failed Rwanda. Here is a chance for one man to help save Kenya.

To ODM leaders: If you believe in something, you must pursue it. Nothing good comes without a price. No freedom ever cam freely. If you let the fact that lives have been lost blur your vision of a total solution to the problem, those very lives would have been lost in vain.

The two kenyas

There are two Kenyas. In one (The Republic Of Kirinyanga) there is immense Joy (By the way, Kalonzo and Musyimi claim they represent Christ!). In the Other (The Rest of Kenya) there is deep suffering.

NAIROBI, Jan 9 (Reuters) – Kenya’s embattled government has activated a murderous criminal gang to protect its supporters during a bloody confrontation over disputed elections, a leading human rights activist said on Wednesday.

Maina Kiai, head of the government-funded National Commission on Human Rights, said the Mungiki, an ethnic Kikuyu gang notorious for beheading its victims, had returned.

“They are coming out again and being used by the state. We have firm evidence of that, some of their people came to us,” he said.

Government spokesman Alfred Mutua angrily denied the claim: “If there is evidence of Mungiki, he should either table it — and he had better make sure that it is the right evidence — or just shut up.”

This is not surprising, as everyone in Kenya knows, since:

  1. Mungiki was initially created to counter the Kalenjin “Warriors” evicting Kikuyus in 1992
  2. Mungiki was used by Moi and Uhuru during the 1997 and 2002 elections to terrorize others
  3. Most Kikuyu leaders support the Mungiki
  4. Mwai Kibaki has never even once spoken against the Mungiki, preferring instead to refer to some generic and nebulous  “wakora”

There is no question that the people of Mt. Kenya region felt that they were being given a raw deal during the Moi era. It is also known that the people had sworn that “tukiipata, haita potea tena”. Unlike most people, i do not buy the theory that Kibaki had no idea he was going to be defeated in the 2007 elections. He knew so very well. Consider these pieces of evidence:

  1. “Change the constitution” aka, Wako Draft, that sought to entrench Kibaki.
  2. Kibaki’s own statements: “Mtaka hapo hapo, tutakaa hapa” and “siendi popote
  3. Opinion polls “too close to call”
      It was evident to all that massive efforts were being used to doctor the polls to show that the elections would be “too close” to call. Gallup’s last minute poll is another piece ( somebody should follow this and find out who ate what at Gallup- maybe they just used Waititu and Wolf )
  4. The new judges appointments to the High Court 2 weeks before the election
      Of, course, for any fool who would want to go to court
  5. Karume’s famous “I as the Minister of Defense will order the Military to crack down on protests” in Dec 2007
    • He knew there would be protest
    • He knew he would still be calling the shots as minister after the elections ( in fact after he is nominated, he may get his docket back )
  6. Police Commissioner’s press statement at the counting halls at KICC in the early days of counting
    • He knew there would be protests
    • He already knew who the “loser” was gonna be and that they would protest- because he knew there was cooking going on
  7. ECK appointments. ODM must have been naive to think one man, Kivuitu, would make a difference
  8. Kivuitu’s famous “cooking” remark etc. ( Kivuitu should know there probably is a hit on him, for blubbing out-or maybe it was meant to be that way, that there be chaos, that some people may be dealt with once and for all )

Anyway, we all know these things, so i do not see why we have to debate whether the rigging was premeditated or not. It was. So what next?

There are the facts:

  1. Kenya (and most African countries ) are tribe based. There is nothing wrong with that. It is our identity, our culture, so to speak
  2. The tribe factor has been used very very negatively, and for 40 years, most africans are way underdeveloped because of this.
  3. Kibaki ( and by extensions,  Kikuyus ) eat the goat they believe is theirs by birthright
  4. The rest of Kenyans say “we looked after the goat, we are eating grass”
  5. The Kikuyus have been favoured by the Kibaki government. Everybody knows this, so do not yada yada me.
  6. The other Kenyans feel oppressed by the kikuyus
  7. The Kikuyus are obviously not welcome in west Kenya and parts of Coast Province
  8. The rest of Kenyans are not welcome in Central Kenya. In fact they can not own property in Central kenya, even if they wanted to.
  9. The kikuyus are very hard working and have work to do
  10. The rest of Kenyans are hard working but have no work to “hard work at”
  11. The kikuyus in the west have lost their property and lives
  12. The others have lost their property and lives
  13. The Kikuyus support the policies of Mwai Kibaki to man
  14. The others reject the policies of Mwai Kibaki
  15. The kikuyus think Kibaki is good for the nation
  16. The others believe Raila is good for the nation.

Kenya is not one. Why the pretense of one united nation? United for what? What makes a nation? The physical boundaries or the seeing “together” and common purpose of its people? The elections of course brought out what everybody always knew, that peoples belong to different nations in Kenya ( those who claim that they have been shocked at these events , are either among the new millionaires or those who go about their daily lives in ease, seeing the oppression and poverty of their fellows and justifies it that “they are lazy, unlike us”. )

There are at least two nations within Kenya. People need to go separate ways. If we need to maintain a united Kenya, we must at least have self-governing “states” within Kenya, so that the Kikuyu can settle and own property where he feels safe from the kaleo arrows. And so that the other Kenyans can live and work where they feel safe from the government terror gang Mungiki and state sanctioned marginalization.

All other solutions are band-aid solutions.

I heard something like this: ODM is being outwitted every day. They wait for “peace talks”, while PNU pretends to care and continues in forming a government ( just a matter of time before ODM MPs are invited for Ruci’s Mokimo at Statehouse ) . ODM listens to US/UK/World on how “peace must prevail” at all costs, yet the US/UK is fighting a “freedom” war in Iraq, not seeking peace. The US cares nothing whether Kenya becomes a dictatorship or not. They will still do business with Kenya. In fact, it would be better for them then, they can bribe the government and go terrorist hunting in Somalia.

1:In the beginning, the Lord created Africa and other Lands. And many people did he also create.

2:And the Lord gave Agikuyu his language and settled him around Mt. Kenya and commanded him to till the land and to be shrewd in his dealings. And it was so, and the lord looked and behold it was good.

3:And the Lord gave Maasai his language and set him in the vast Rift Valley, and commanded him to roam freely on the land and to feed his cattle. And it was good.

4:And the Lord gave Luo his language and commanded him to sit by the Lake, and to build a little holiday hut and to eat lots of fish. And it was so, and the Lord saw that it was good. And many other peoples did the Lord create. And when He had finished his work, He looked, and behold, it was very good.

5:And the Lord said to the people, “You shall each mind your own culture and business and leave each other alone. In the day that you shall seek to be in one nation, you shall surely hate each other and be disunited and shall kill each other”.

6:And it came to pass, that the devil came along, all dressed up as an angel of light, in white sparkly garments and and speaking a great language and said, “Has the Lord said you shall not be one?” And the people said, “yes”.

7:And the devil said “No, you shall not surely be divided, hating each other. Instead, you shall be strong and mighty, like me”.

8:And the people looked and behold, the devil was shiny and good to look upon and to be desired.

9: And so the people obeyed the Devil and became one nation. And they called the nation Kenya. And they anointed Kenyatta king over them. And Kenyatta tasted of the fruit of the doctrine of the devil, and it was sweet. And he did give to Moi his servant, and he also did drink and was drunken.

10: And for 40 years the people remained “united” and “prospered”. And the people were drunked, and slept many days.

11: Now it came to pass, that Luo, Luhya, Maasai and the other brothers lifted up their eyes, and behold, their brother Kikuyu had prospered greatly over them and had much possessions. And they were wroth, because that Luo had no fish to eat, Maasai had no farm to graze his beasts. And Kalenjin had sold off his land to kikuyu his brother. And Kikuyu swore in his heart and said, “Luo shall never rule over me”. And there was chaos.

12:And so it came to pass, that after 40 years, the people hated each other and killed each other. And the word of the Lord, which he had spoken by his servant Moses (Gen 11) and His Son Yeshua ( Matt 12), came to pass.

13:But all the people of the Land were drunk by the wine of the doctrine of the devil of globalization and one nation and unity, and democracy, and market forces, and sought to be like the devil and could not perceive that they had been deceived.

14: Come now says, the Lord, “A house divided against itself cannot stand. Let the people go their separate ways, even as i had commanded, that there be peace in the Land.”

15: But the people were determined in their hearts to find a solution to their problems and did disobey the word of the Lord, and for 1000 years they fought one another, and sold off their inheritance that the Lord had given them, to the devil; of gold, and Diamonds, and flowers and Coffee and Wild beasts and Oil and the talents of their sons, and everything that was to be found on their borders. And the people wallowed in great poverty.

16: And the Lord set shepherds and watchmen over the people, to teach the people His ways. But the shepherds fed on the flock, and ruled over the people with iron fist and deceived the people, and the people gave them their possessions. And the watchmen also lusted after the fair women, and after power and money, build unto themselves kingdoms and made themselves kings and first ladies. And they defiled the Lord’s house. And there was none left to stand in the gap for the people.

17: And the acts of the people of Africa, and how they suffered greatly and begged the devil for bread crumbs ( after that they had sold all their inheritance to him ), and how they failed to subdue the environment, are they not written in the books of the Media of the devil’s kingdom and in the Halls of the Charity organizations of the world?

Toi 1:1-17

NB: I fear the Lord greatly, but herein i take liberty to make light of a weighty issue, peradventure there be one soul with might, to listen and considers the origin of the plight of Africa, and the height from which the sons of Kenya have fallen.

It all started by a civilian coup by former president Kibaki, i.e.stealing the 2007 election in broad daylight.

Then, on 1.2.2008, another coup was carried out, in plain sight.

The military has been deployed to various parts of the country affected by violence following President Kibaki’s re-election.

Government spokesman Alfred Mutua said the military has been deployed to assist in averting a humanitarian crisis. He said the soldiers will help in the distribution of food, blankets and medical supplies in those areas.

All Africa.com Jan 2nd 2008 quoting NationMedia.com

Humanitarian? Really. This government has not shown any humanitarian face, ever. Not since 2003 when they let those who steal money for HIV/AIDs sufferers go scot free. Not since they let scummy organizations such as sasanet pyramid scam billions of shillings from people with need (and greed). Not since the 2007 election results protests began ( how to you lock up a slum such as Kibera and Kisumu, with no power, water or food coming in and then say you are humanitarian ?)

This, i believe is the first steps of a full-fledged military takeover. When the time is ripe, simply make the announcement. The soldiers are already in place.

Is this far-fetched? Hardly. Remember defense minister Njenga Karume sometimes in December 2007, before the polls saying that:

As minister for defense, he will order the military to deal with any post election protest.

Or one tough talking General Mohammed threating Kenyans in the counting halls at KICC. How could they know? This was already pre-planned. The rigging. The clamp down. The talk of Genocide (Thanks to the mad-man Felicen Kabuga, whom they host ). The Military deployment.

Now, if pre-planned, there may be thorny issues to deal with. For example, given that the military is diverse in composition, how to manage control? Soldiers obey order, yes, but can you always count on it? Or you could induct “loyal soldiers” to carry out the humanitarian work ( you, know, like we had a Kibaki-friendly ECK commision and IT staff to work the numbers ). Lets, see, where can we get such people. Aha!. The heartless Mungiki. Maybe that was all the “silencing” them was all about. Away on training. Conspiracy? Hardly.

Lets us hope, rather, let us pray, that the Lord outsmarts the planners of these activities, that having evil intentions, get their schemes turned for public good. May the soldiers outfox them ( Power is sweet, after all ). Let us also pray, that we get a “benevolent” General who hates bloodshed and would like to see a better Kenya. Let us also pray that the General believes, as i do, that the permanent solution to Kenya’s ethnicity problem is a division.

Kenya is already divided, formalize the divisions now.
