Opinion: Bikoy charged with libel, so Project Sodoma was a political hit-job then?

Here we go again. It is for a reason, why someone who leaked the videos and the supposed narco-list in the Philippines, suddenly is charged with Cyber Libel and can possible spend up to 8 years behind bars. This is Bikoy, who released a who’s-who list of opposition members, clergy and whatnots, who is against Duterte and claimed he had videos, which incriminated these to conspire to topple the President.

Alas, someone has lost it and certainly, the man who did is in serious trouble. Bikoy is now facing the Republic Act 10175 – Cybercrime Prevention Act of September 12, 2012, Section 4 – Libel. Which stipulate, the possible offence and sentencing to be up to years. This is a hard punishment for the crime in question, but also made like this. Therefore, that if people break this law and falsely accuse and misuse their rights of publishing. They can pay fines and spend time behind bars for doing so.

That Bikoy now is charged with this, prove that the alleged Project Sodoma was questionable at best. It was a forged narrative and not real, that the whole speculations of this, was made to enforce and criminalize several of opposition figures and the ones who are critical of the President. In a way, that make them commit treasonous acts. However, that cannot be true, if the man behind the leak is charged with cyber libel, then it doesn’t add up.

A man who leaks this is charged and into custody. Surely, this shows that the whole play was foul. Because, if the man who did it and showed it the world, was fake and a fraud. It cannot be real, if your taken in for cyber libel for the released content. It is that simple.

If he wasn’t taken in, and the Solicitor General, the Department of Justice and everyone investigating Project Sodoma, would show another result. Instead, we are seeing and the press is showing, that the man leaking it is taken snaps of and shown with his mug-shot. Clearly, that is not a sign of confidence, for the ones thinking the Project Sodoma was real.

It seems like a very bad movie, not even a B-Movie. The ones straight to DVD with bad CGI and actors who couldn’t make it to Hollywoood. The ones who think they are hot-shots, but is really TV-Theatre at best.

That is what this seems. I had a feeling this was a political hit-job, but with the fella in question charged with libel. It proves that the hunch was correct. That the ones playing this one out, didn’t really have the content or evidence to back it up. If they did, then the mastermind, the leaker behind it. Would have challenged the opposition members in question in court, not be there himself as a suspect.

Feel me, Project Sodoma, smells like hoax, taste like a hoax and is most likely a hoax. Halo-Halo anyone? Peace.

Opinion: We are living in the era of ghosts!

There are no short supplies in ghosts, they been roaming this earth with us earthlings for so long. But in the recent times, they are becoming more ever presence. They are turning up on front-pages, having more rumours about them than the Kardashians and they are eating more then the living.

These ghosts are in every part of lives, every part of government and can suddenly empty all sorts of state reserves. This being tenders for passport paper, for registration of siblings and even death certificates, you got to pay-off some ghosts. That is just the way things are.

These ghosts are hooking themselves up with tenders for constructions of government subsidized infrastructure projects, they are getting tenders for service agreements for any ministry or department. The money for these ghosts ends up in the Cabinet Secretaries hands or in Honourable man leading the show. However, the public will never touch these funds or see the project. They were just something beautiful on paper and promising for the place it would be built. But, that was just a hoax and mirage spread to the public.

They are ever growing these things and sometimes they even get hooked-up with funds from international and bilateral organizations to fill in the gap of funding. This being done in the pretext of supposed needed basic government functions or adjustment of public investment. This being ghost schoolbooks, ghost medicine and ghost vaccines. There are nothing that suddenly will never appear. If this being procurement papers, lack of tenders or even the existence of the companies selling the products. It will all vanish in front of our eyes. Like they never appeared in the first place.

The government might even order ghost cars, ghost roads, ghost railroads, ghost schools, ghost hospitals, ghost seedlings and ghost salaries. There are nothing that cannot be ghosted, even the most life-saving parts of government work. That supposed to save life and secure the citizens can be used as a trick to steal funds. This is just the order of the day.

There are stories from everywhere, it is not even shocking. I am just awaiting ghost toilet-paper, ghost water and ghost liquor to hit the front-pages, because they have forge some other document and ensure they are eating on others people’s dime. That is just the way things are, we are seeing it and millions, upon millions are eating every day. They smile, they grin, they campaign and kiss babies, but when they are in office; they will figure out a way to eat off our plate. That is just the way it is.

It isn’t perfect. It is just a life of ghosting, embezzling, white-collar crime and grand corruption, which we are bit to used too. It isn’t funny, this isn’t Caspar the Friendly Ghost. Neither Ghostbusters 1 or 2 or 3. No, its just our civil servants combined with elected officials taking us for ride. Peace.

Opinion: Zuma thinking his own spin can save his skin!

Well, former President Jacob Zuma has this week been under pressure and answered to the Zondo Commission on the State Capture Case, which has been such a slow glacier going. The African National Congress, the allies of Zuma and the Gupta’s surely doesn’t like these days. But its needed to get the dirty laundry out and about.

All the running scandals has been steady piling up, onto a level of 783 counts of Corruption, together with the ones piled together for the State Capture Commission, where the former President is residing and has to answer for acts in office and before. Surely, this will implicate more of his allies, his friends, former ministers and so-on.

Zuma didn’t buy his fire-pool alone in Nkandla, neither did he buy a house, all on his own in the Middle-East, but surely he got help to siphon, embezzle and find ways to misuse the State Owned Enterprises like Eskom in his favour. We all know that by now.

President Zuma knows what he did with the Gupta’s and others, he can use the spy-games, the implications of troubled waters and whatnot. He can play like he doesn’t remember anything happening from the millennium to the present day, but he can remember what happen in 1990?

How stupid does he thinks the public, the Commission and the ANC is at this present stage?

We know there are smoke, there are most likely fire. There are enough questionable behaviour to pile up 783 count of corruption on the man. You don’t get that without amassing and misusing power to an extent that your recklessly spending and tendering public funds to implicated associates on a daily basis. The Zondo Commission, the race for intelligence and the affidavit of the accused will come. Whether, Zuma likes it or not. His time with the reign is gone.

Zuma could try to save face, but instead trying to everyone for fools. It is not a good look. It makes a mockery of the Republic, a Republic he used to run. That should be warning to what to come, as he will play more jokes and spins. Trying to make the whole thing seem pointless. Alas, that is not the case. This is to return and to get the truth. Get the real deal behind the corruption counts and get the possible securities, that the players who played with him also get to pay. Because, there was plenty of scandals, plenty of bad deals around given to friendly Gupta’s or others.

However, the man will act like it didn’t happen or he doesn’t remember. But he will remember when Mbeki kissed the wrong girl or someone else did a boo-boo. Nevertheless, his sins is forgotten in his mind. His retired and he shouldn’t have to pay, because it was his time eat. That is how it seems. Which is not fair for the Republic and neither for the rule of law. Peace.

Citizen Mwangi: A tale of an activist apparently turned revolutionary!

“DCI DETECTIVES arrest Boniface Mwangi in Nairobi; police accuse activist of organising a revolution against the Jubilee government” (Nation Breaking News, 06.05.2019).

I didn’t know this, Boniface Mwangi might do a lot of things, he might ask a lot of questions and asks a lot of the authorities. He even tries to get people involved in their civic duties and their rights. He might even be brash about it, direct and say it like it is. Sometimes, people have wondered if he has done this as his hustle. However, he seems like a fighter, not for publicity, but for the causes. Even if he has no direct movement behind him or built around him. Which is weird, in the sense, that a man who is a direct threat to the state, doesn’t have a massive grassroots’ organization to beat the system with.

That is why this day is amazing, as he is charged with organizing a revolution. This is not a joke, this is a serious charge, which the Chief Inspector of Police George Muchiri have charged him with and arrested him for today. Therefore, his own livelihood and life as an activist is on hold. They are claiming he wanted to start a revolution that might cause a civil unrest against the Jubilee government.

This is really bloody brilliant, at the time of the Handshake with the fellow “opposition” parties, which has organized the biggest demonstrations to date of late. The ones whose has the OKOA demos and the other rallies Post Fresh Presidential Elections. Still, the ones organizing them is walking free and about, even assigned public official posts. While, Mwangi has just lingered on the internet and also had speech assignments elsewhere. Even taken a recent trip to Zimbabwe, but not caused havoc.

Why are they doing it now? His articles and speaking engagements has been known for long. His Ukweli Party is known and his Pawa254. Still, none of them is powerful or strong. If a man wants to fight corruption and demonstrate against it is a crime. Then, the President and his cronies should watch out, as they are supposed to have a life-style audit and a war-on-corruption. Alas, that is not happening, because we know they will not fight themselves.

What is unique is arresting the on a likelihood of a possible protest or demonstrations, which will cause civic unrest. If someone should be punished for that in rest memory is Raila Odinga and his CORD/NASA who has really sparked civic unrest in the Republic. Alas, his not an activist, but a high ranking official and a man of grace. Therefore, he will not be touched.

Now, three hours after the news was breaking, there now footage of his release from the Central Police Station. As this news was trending, because it is ridiculous to arrest someone, on a charge on something they haven’t committed or done. They are doing it on the basis, that he might spark civil unrest, but the Police by doing this pre-emptive arrests might clinch in the fire to actually pull-it off. Therefore, this what it is called to say, that something might back-fire.

In this case, this shows what sort of legal society, the Kenyan Republic is at this moment. They are suspecting people of actively engaging in activity to topple the government by a revolution. If the authorities or the regime itself isn’t afraid of the public and their opinion. They wouldn’t arrest someone on this lousy goosy basis as it did today. Because, this is just reckless. The hours of arrest and possible intimidation isn’t a winning tactic. Instead of asking the man, why he does what he does, they put him behind bars. That is just mere insult and another injury to someone whose just trying to do his civic duty. To ask the powers to be, that they can be transparent, just and honest. Which they are not, since they are arresting someone, someone they apparently suggest that he has the amplifier to start a revolution. That is really something else.

How blatant and weak is the government, when they arrest someone on suspicions like this? How idiotic and how much do they disregard the civic duty of all citizens, to ensure the checks and balances of government?

Well, this is just stupid and shows how little faith the Jubilee government has in its population. When even a mere activist can be taken into custody without producing evidence nor justifiable means for his arrest. They might be able to trace his TED talks and talks of demonstrations against the mere scale of grand corruption. But don’t anticipate that to spark a revolution, than John Githongo should have been able a long time ago on the same matter. Peace.

Opinion: Sorry, but not sorry for the resignation of DHS Secretary Kristjen Nielsen!

That Department for Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen has now resigning and still it isn’t good news. It is just someone who has offered her greed for being in power, by defending someone indefensible. That is who she is and how she will be remembered.

This former DHS Secretary will be remembered for the way the she handled the Zero Tolerance Policy. The way she has defended the policy of separating children from the parents on the border. The way the state has built camps for kids and let them even lose their lives there. If not traumatise the kids and even cage them in. Depending on which private firm the state had given contracts to do this for ICE and the DHS.

Therefore, I am not felling sorry for Nielsen. She has written herself into the Zero Tolerance Policy History and will be remembered for the two years of tears, pain and sorrow, she has helped push on innocent people crossing the border. Which shouldn’t be done in this and treating the people like they are illegal. There are procedures and laws to enforce this, there always has been for sovereign republic.

However, making them criminal by passing over the border is totally outlandish. Instead of ensuring they are following the codes and the justice for everyone. Not everyone passing over the border would have the right or opportunity to get visa to stay. Nevertheless, the state shouldn’t act upon them this way. It is injustice to the innocent children and tormenting the parents for trying to find a better life or even trying to live the “American Dream”.

Like D’Angelo Gore reported in June 2018: “DHS told us the “zero-tolerance” policy went into effect on May 5, and between May 5 and June 9, there had been 2,342 children separated from their parents. Contrary to what Nielsen claimed, other administration officials have acknowledged a change in policy to serve as a deterrent to illegal immigration” (Gore – ‘Nielsen’s Rhetoric on Family Separations’ 20.06.2018, FactCheck.Org).

The Texas Observer reported this also in June 2018: “In a letter sent last week, 19 special agents in charge at ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations unit said that ICE’s controversial detention and deportation policies have made it hard for them to conduct investigations into threats to national security, organized crime, narcotics smuggling and human trafficking. “HSI’s investigations have been perceived as targeting undocumented aliens, instead of the transnational criminal organizations that facilitate cross border crimes impacting our communities and national security,” the special agents in charge wrote in the previously unreported letter. They also wrote that “the perception of HSI’s investigative independence is unnecessarily impacted by the political nature” of ICE’s immigration enforcement. “Many jurisdictions continue to refuse to work with HSI because of a perceived linkage to the politics of civil immigration.”” (Jason Bunch – ‘ICE Criminal Investigators Ask to Be Distanced from Detentions, Deportations in Letter to Kirstjen Nielsen’ 27.06.2018, Texas Observer).

We can see what her work did. She tried to defend and even downplay the narrative, as the innocent civilian migration, the asylum seekers was taken into custody and the kids separated by the authorities. This even made it worse for the same authorities to investigate or follow the illegal crime of drugs. Which has been part of the issue, this Trump Administration has used as a pawn in the Zero Tolerance Policy. Even making it worse to investigate that, because of the horrific tactic of separating families on the border.

She is despicable, she is part of the paradigm that brought the “Shameful Era” back in the United States. Together with Stephen Miller, Sebastian Gorka, Stephen Bannon, Jeff Sessions and the list goes on.

Now, she will not be the DHS Secretary anymore, however, she will always be remembered for caging in kids. For saying to the world that no kids died in the detention camps, when it did. She defended the evil of men. Kristjen stood by this and worked hard to downplay the results of the acts of the Zero Tolerance Policy on the Southern Border.

We can clearly see and remember what she did. Her legacy is sealed by her actions. The words done in defending something no-one should defend. Nielsen has done this to herself. The acts and words are defining her time in Office.

I don’t feel sorry for her, she made the cake and has to eat it. The ones defending her doesn’t care about violations against humanity. They don’t care about the innocent who was violated and taken into custody, because of her enforcement of the Zero Tolerance Policy. That is what will stain her name and her memory. Peace.
