Liberia: President Weah has forgotten why he rules the Republic!

Monrovia, 7th June 2019

Monrovia 7th June 2019

Those that constantly insulting the President, I want to be clear; after this, there will be no citizens in this country, I can defy you that will ever insult the President and think you will walk on the streets freely” George Weah on the eve before the demonstrations today.

Well, the Presidency of George Weah only started on the 22nd January 2018. It is only a year and half since gotten into power. Therefore, this has not been a long time for a man to let his power go to his head. However, that has apparently happen for the former giant footballer and Ball D’or Winner. His might has blurred his vision.

Why do I say that? Well, the man whose the Executive and Head of State has dimmed the hopes of possible changes of rule. As he is just like many others in the past. Since he has blocked all social media in Liberia, as the people were planning to demonstrate against the state after grand corruption scandals, called #SavetheState demos. This was scheduled today. So, to stop this from happening in Monrovia. The President blocked WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook and other pages. Therefore, the citizens whose online today is using VPN to get Online and circumvent the acts of the state.

Since Weah has taken over, there are over a hundred million United States Dollars which has been siphoned away from the state coffers. The value of the currency has fallen swiftly, while the common commodities has escalated, therefore, the public is getting strained, while the elite and politicians are eating of wealth of the state.

Surely, the government should feel the power of the people, as they are governing on the behalf of the people. They wouldn’t have an office or be representatives, if it wasn’t for the people. The President and his cabinet, are there because the citizens needs proper representations. Therefore, the needs of the people and the will of the people should be respected.

Weah has forgotten these principals. Several of the ones organizing has gotten either their houses raided by the authorities or leaders arrested. Therefore, with these actions the Weah Administration is showing their lack of understanding and value of freedom of speech. Not only blocking the social media to stop the public from spreading information, but also going after the ones organizing the demonstration. Shows how he blesses a tyranny in Liberia.

Weah has gone after Council of Patriots and the Save the State Movement whose really have pissed him off. He was expecting more praise and glory in his role as President. Not being questioned for his role in eating of the public and trying to get away with it. That has backfired and the public wants answers.

Clearly, the President and his authorities have forgotten their role. That is why they put up roadblocks and coming with intimidation before the demonstrations. Instead of understanding them and actually deliver what they are asking for. The President should answer the questions of the missing funds and the rising inflation. Instead, his trying to use the pressure of the state to silence his critics.

We are seeing a side of Weah, which is weird, but shows again what power does to someone. Weah’s been eaten all up by it and lost himself in it. There is no return, unless he trying get redemption, but don’t anticipate it. His quotes on the eve before the demonstrations shows his heart and spirit. Peace.

Opinion: DP Ruto is something else, but truthful his not!

This is an occasion where we can speak to ourselves candidly without considering who is in government or opposition. The subject today is a new dawn for our country and what we should all do. We must rid our government and institutions of corruption. ‘ A New Dawn’ is a good subject for us all to engage in theft and corruption is bad in any language. From my mother tongue it is said… “ A thief may be intelligent but not more than the investigator” To our investigative agencies, you have our support as you help us deal with the challenge that we have. The 10 commandments say – Do not steal… Do not bear false testimony. The President and I were once victims of false testimony. It took hand of God and prayer for us to get out. We do not want any Kenyan to suffer such again. As we pursue this noble course, we must remember to inspire the hawker to own a kiosk and kiosk owner to own a shop and shop owner to own a mini market, and a boda boda rider to own a car” – Deputy President William Ruto on the National Prayer Breakfast on the 30th May 2019.

DP Ruto is the career politician, the man who says whatever to walk scotch-free and get other people in trouble. His really bold and brazen, he knows what his been up too, but still acts like its nothing.

Ruto knows how his grown wealth, built an empire and owns several of estates. The DP haven’t got this out of goodwill of the state, but out of the shady backdoor deals and land-grabbing. This is well-known stuff, therefore, the DP knows his corrupt and his actions. Still, he speaks like his still the innocent broke preacher he was back-in-the-day.

The Hustler hasn’t hustled through the proper channels, his wealth has grown and deals done while in government have surged all his accounts, his estates, businesses and even corporations. That is the sort of man he is. Therefore, his pledge to work against corruption, means initially work against himself and all of his associates. All of which is preposterous.

Secondly, it wasn’t an act of god that stopped the ICC case against him and Kenyatta. That was well prepared work from your associates and officials in the Republic. As the Judge Eboe-Osuji “declared a mistrial in the case, because it cannot be discounted that the weaknesses in the Prosecution case might be explained by the demonstrated incidence of tainting of the trial process by way of witness interference and political meddling that was reasonably likely to intimidate witnesses” (ICC – ‘.Ruto and Sang case: ICC Trial Chamber V(A) terminates the case without prejudice to re-prosecution in future’ 05.04.2016).

If intimidating witnesses is answers from God, than the God, DP Ruto confesses to at night is totally different than mine. Surely, my God answers prayers too, but not with possible tainting legal process and using harsh methods against the ones who will testify against you. That is what was done in the ICC case and therefore dismissed. It wasn’t false testimony, it was making people afraid of even speaking out on the mischief being done.

That is why I am not accepting the words of DP Ruto. He tends to lie and bend the truth to his advantage. This is just a snippet of his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier today. Surely, he said more things whose was disregarding the truth. Still, I focus on this, because. Unless, the Life-Style Audit hits home, unless the war on corruption takes down his fraudulent activities. It is hard to believe it is real. Peace.

Eurobond 3.0: Marching the state into a debt-trap!

“Kenya has accepted offers of Sh210 billion in a third Eurobond it has named the “Kachumbari bond”, which will be used to repay other loans and fund unspecified infrastructure projects” (Daily Nation, 18.05.2019).

There are already been several of warnings on the rising levels of debt under President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto. The Jubilee has raised levels to unbearable levels and certainly, this will hit the economy at one point. As the grace-periods and the repayment levels will eat huge parts of the budgets. This is because of the reckless spending, the grandeur of grand corruption and whatever else the state has spent their ill-gotten funds at.

Because, this isn’t funny, this is spoiling the future and destroying the trust of the financial institution, the value of the currency and also the financial markets. This is all done because of an political elite has found a way of eating, which will in the end cost the state more in the long run. It is a quick fix to take up a loan, but the loans has to be repaid and usually with interest. That means it will not only cost the initial loans, but also the added interests. Plus it will be more damaging if the state cannot pay for it and have to default on the loans. Than it might loose its collateral and has to give away valuable assets, licenses of extractions and others just to barley get by.

This will be legacy of Kenyatta and his Jubilee Party. As they pre-occupied with one scandal after another. As the State is busy scheming finding new ways to eat, instead of finding ways to serve the public. The elite is so hectic about it, it needs to rehash old tricks to fund themselves.

When you have to take up loans for unspecified infrastructure projects, you know its not really that serious. You are just gambling on debt, raising debt and creating an evil cycle of debt management, which in the end will make the state poorer and poorer. As you have to raise more and more funds to have capacity to serve the old loans, while taking up new to cover for the old ones. In the end giving an alcoholic one more beer on credit and not expecting him to want another one after his finished with the first one. That makes you a fool, not cool and aloof.

There isn’t anything good coming out of this, unless you buy yourself land, house and even pay off old creditors, but why care right? Because, you have to down the line find new creditors to keep up with the newly created debt. You might cover for the old debt, but at one point you have to pay for this one too. Its a cycle of slow-destruction, instead of gaining revenue in a natural order. This is just bloating the financial markets, creating a giant bubble, which at one point will burst.

Than, you have a headache you cannot handle. This should be known by the Presidency and the Cabinet itself. This should be basic knowledge, but seemingly they are to happy to eat. That they are filling their pockets and ensuring their wealth is created. While the public in desperation should wonder, why could their representatives misuse their trust, misuse their power and their ability?

Why? Could the state take up three rounds of massive loans, which has nothing to show for. Other than more debt and becoming trapped in cycle, where you only loose and never win. Peace.

Not all Gold that Glimmers: The saga of Wetangula!

Well, there are certain big-men that should thread their waters careful. In the coming days, the FORD-Kenya President Moses Wetangula and a opposition figure with NASA/CORD have to answer for possible crimes committed during a travel last year in Dubai.

Moses is in seriously problems, as documents and phone-call leakage have revealed the participation in the gold-scam done to a Prince in the United Arab Emirates during 2018. Clearly, this story of a forged trade-off, where millions of shillings came into the hands of politician wasn’t supposed to back-fire, but it does.

Wetangula surely wasn’t prepared for this to create headlines, neither become something significant. But now its on the tongue and in living colour for the whole ordeal to be exposed. There was a minor leak in March 2019, but now in May 2019 it has blown up into his face.

The politician have done this sort of thing before with the conning of Japan for a fake land for an embassy in 2015. Therefore, the ability to pull of these stunts are known and Moses has gotten away with in the past. That is why he thinks its cool to con the Arab Prince and his people, as they are getting funds for themselves, selling fake gold. That is great payday.

You can just wonder what is up next? Whose else is implicated and to what degree, as there are talks of CS Fred Matiangi and other close allies of DP Ruto. So, the whole pack of thieves are ready steady, UNGA eating instead of spaghetti.

Alas, the puns and the pushes are getting directed to Wetangula, not the other ones, which should also be implicated, because when you expose Moses, the others should cross the river Nile too. Maybe not lost for 30 years before entering Canaan, but surely there is no dry season for Moses.

In coming days and weeks, the revelations, more dossiers and more information should be leaked. To prove the Con and the scam. Especially, if the Senator are getting off the hook. Since, what has been leaked is possibly showing that his a crook. His not a felon until the bracelets are on, but in the meantime. He has to know, that the taped phone-call and dossier shows his intention and involvement in the Gold Scam.

Surely, the man should answer for his crime, but not anticipate it, as his one the men in high-ranking positions and close to gates of power. Therefore, they could let him off the hook. Peace.
