Jubilee Deregistered Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) because it scrutinized the Elections!
President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto are some touchy fellas these days, you would think the incumbents after a marvelous victory, where the IEBC Portal continues to counts votes in their favor. Would be feeling secure and steady for another 5 year term. Instead they are weak and terrified human beings, who cannot handle critique. Therefore, on the 14th August 2017, they deregistered the Kenyan Human Rights Commission (KHRC).
This was done by the Fazul Mahamad of the NGOs Co-Ordination Board, which is under the leadership of CS Fred Matiang’i, has decided to punish the NGO for their crass criticism during the polls and also during the counting of the votes. Just the day before the inauguration, the new Jubilee Administration proves their dictatorial and controlling efforts. As they cannot even manage the critic of a KHRC!
Because of their words and their questioning of the Jubilee shootings and killings after the announcement of another term for Kenyatta, the state are now pushing the KHRC a bill of Ksh. 100 million. Also freezing all the funds of the accounts connected to the Organization, this done by the Central Bank of Kenya. So it claims it has gotten ill-gained banknotes, that now is sufficient with the fine put on the Human Rights Organization.
This all seem like a precision attack on an organization who is questioning the ill-adviced and the bad tempered government response to the rigged election. That they are hurting the innocent and will now also damage an independent organization.
CS Matiang’i really needs to show his mercy soon, because his legacy is already bloody, even in a short tenure as it has been. He has blamed NASA for everything, while he has had police officers bloody hands on his conscience. This should be well-known, and even if they can hurt one organization and dismantle the ones speaking-up. They cannot silence them all. They will just corner themselves and make sure the Jubilee, are revealing their looted gains and the borrowed funds that keeps their SUVs driving to Karen, Nairobi. Peace.
