DP Ruto is a lot of smoke, but no fire!

DP Ruto: “The president and I have said that we will do our part in the fight on corruption. We have allocated resources to the agencies and added more people to these agencies” #DPRutoOnNTV” (NTV Kenya, 08.07.2018).

This here will be a short one. The Jubilee Government is all PR and no flair, they continue to borrow, become more and more colonized by the Chinese because of that. The Jubilee continues to steal land, state businesses and misuse funds, but nothing happens of significant change. The growth in Corruption is so steady, that its just tragic. That all the growing loans are killing the state, little by little.

Therefore, the speeches and ceremonies, the opening of commissions is more a flash in darkness, than significant change, as the state and the high-ranking officials walks away with wealth. They do so because of their allegiance to the state party. Even Orange Democratic Movement isn’t real opposition, as they are compromised by the agreement made by Raila Odinga, who is now a Senior Official representing Kenya, even in India.

That is why the words of William Ruto is pointless, the sugar-scandals, the biggest elephant of all – the Standard Gauge Railway project, the NYS Scandals and so many others, it isn’t funny. Their trickling down tear-drops, that turns into the ocean of despair. It is tragic how the funds are misused, how the state lack of governance and the oversight are taking for ride, while the elites, the ones connected to the party are all finding ways to eat on the government pay. They are just toying around with people’s future and day-to-day. They are mocking the state, taking land, taking tenders and misusing the trust of the people.

The circle of theft is happening again, and again, as the world keeps turning. That DP Ruto are saying these nice words on TV. Like he really fight it, the man, the hustle, the one who owns media houses, a village and different houses on various plots, different companies and even helicopters, the man on a decent paycheck, but not in the league of this. The man that donates nearly every weekend millions to good projects as he talks beautifully in churches. Clearly, the man has vast wealth created by meager millions, where he owns billions upon billions.

That is why he is all talk and no action. Which is understandable, as he will himself need to show his sudden progression and richness that he made out of nothing.

DP Ruto, do yourself and show the reality, not the fantasy, you might be saying the right words in some sense. But we know what is behind the facade. Peace.

IEBC – Re: Suspension to Complete the Comprehensive Audit of all Major Procurements Relating to the 2017 General and Fresh Presidential Elections (14.06.2018)

Chebukati using Chiloba as IEBC’s fall guy!

It is clear after CEO Ezra Chiloba yesterday was reinstated and won the court case, he could get his job back. However, Chairman Wafula Chebukati did suspend Chiloba again. This is a ploy to keep himself on top, while damaging Chiloba. It is a very simple game. They are not fixing the issues within the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) instead they are fitting the blame on one by one.

That is ancient political game, which Chebukati is doing as much as he can. Since most of the key advisors and Commissioners fled the scene in 2017. The ones that was in on it is gone. They have done it because they cannot stomach the issues and the rigging. That is clear by the ones fleeing and showing the internal memos from the elections last year.

Therefore, Chebukati should be more careful, but in the Handshake era, he knows he can get away with it. He will not loose and that is evident by his actions. Wafula would act differently if it would cost him or his honour. But at this stage he will get away with it.

There is nothing showing signs of change or progress, neither any signs of retribution or even care from the Jubilee. Who had ordered the showdown and the elections to secure a second term for Kenyatta! That is why they just let it be and go-on like nothing has happen.

The IEBC is playing the public for fools blaming Chiloba. Yes, Chiloba did a lot and has done lots of damage. That has been evident, however, the whole IEBC has orchestrated it and all are to blame. Not just Chiloba, he is the fall guy as we speak. Nevertheless, the other commissioners and the Chairman knows perfectly well, what went down. He is just using Chiloba as a pawn and a useful one as that.

So don’t get caught in the hype, thinking that Chebukati does this out of concern of IEBC. He does this out of concern of his own job and not wanting to lose the title. Even as he himself has done major parts of the rigging and the electioneering in favour of Kenyatta. We all know that, he is just acting as if we don’t.

The naïve might eat the crap, but I beg to differ. Because I won’t be played by shadow games. Especially when I see them from afar. Peace.

The nine lives of Chiloba!

“REPRIEVE FOR IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba as court directs that he resume work pending determination of case he filed after he was suspended” (Nation Breaking News, 14.06.2018).

After the failed attempt to cover-up their mistakes and the rigging in 2017. CEO Ezra Chiloba has been the fall guy of the whole Independent Boundaries and Electoral Commission (IEBC). Everyone with a working mind knows the numbers was juiced up in the Fresh Presidential Elections and also in the first round of 2017. That is well-known and denying it is only fools at play. Even if the Supreme Court validated it, that because the case made for the court wasn’t any good the second round.

Therefore, the IEBC who has had major commissioners fleeing the scene, as they don’t want to associate or be apart of the rigging affair. As the dubious attempts to create legitimacy for the second term of Uhuru Kenyatta was under way. Where all parts from ballots, BVR Machines, Digital Transmission of Results to even the Safaricom blunders. Everything that was questionable, could be questioned without any concern of malice. Since the IEBC did a shady job and the high ranking officials didn’t deny it either. As the Internal Memo’s was released showing more breaches and questionable behaviour.

That Chiloba get back his job after a Court Order isn’t surprising. It is surprising that it took this long. But that is good tactic, as so many forget the grievances of last year. That was mid-2017 and late-2017, now we are mid-2018. The Handshake has already squashed the beef and made sure the Jubilee can survive without too much interference for another day.

Chiloba seems to survive again. That is because of indifference and the heartache. This is because of the nature of affairs. As the corruption scandals and the other fresher evident of theft is more dire, than the previous affairs of electioneering effort to keep the President.

That is why Cambridge Analytica/IEBC Server connection, the whole charade of an election and the questionable results, the lack of voter turnout verifications and the shady voter-rolls, as well as the breaches of trust between BVR Company OT-Morpho/Safran is there. Because the Chiloba aftermath never has been solved.

Chiloba seems to get another life. But it is not because he is good or cares about his job. It is more that he serves a purpose for the regime. That is it. Now that the months and days has gone. The Jubilee, Ruto and Kenyatta hopes that the people have forgotten. Now more preoccupied with the current scandals of the day. The open day looting of state reserves. That is the end-game of a illegitimate regime. They don’t have to answer to anyone. Except for the computer generated bots that elected them. Peace.

Kenya Police Service: Security Situation in Boni Enclave Area (11.06.2018)

Under the Jubilee: The Corruption has grown with 240%!

If you ever wondered why I am never shocked by bribes, graft or grand corruption scandals in Kenya. That is because that is Modus Operandi of the Jubilee government. It is their bread and butter, it is the beer for the alcoholics. Nothing of that is shocking, it is expected. That the State Enterprises, the National Budgets and the other parts of government is used by the civil servants, the appointed leadership and the cabinet itself to enrich themselves. That is done instead of delivering services and government policies to the public. This is thieving and stealing from the public and what they are supposed to get from the government.

Here is the key part of the article in quote, where the stat comes from:

Interior PS Karanja Kibicho has admitted in a sworn affidavit that corruption in Kenya has grown by a massive 240 per cent over the past five years. In the affidavit dated June 8, the PS listed a number of corruption cases that cost tax payers billions of shillings as a result of flawed procurement processes alone since the Jubilee administration took office in 2013.The affidavit is in response to a decision by the Employment and Labour Relations court to set aside government’s decision to suspend all heads of procurement and accounting units in ministries, departments, agencies and state corporations” (Wanjala, 2018).

The number Kibicho is witnessing to the Court is worrying that means that it has more than doubled, it is nearly 2,5 times higher than in 2013. If that isn’t a horrific escalation of misuse, maladministration and of corrupt behavior. Then nothing is and this is really, really making things worse. It is systemic and epidemic. The Jubilee is misusing their power to enrich themselves. Kenyatta and Ruto knows this, the whole State House and everyone in Parliament is in on it. They are scheming differently to ensure their ill-gained goods and services, instead of serving the public. All of them are a part of it and making sure it continues. This isn’t just NYS Scandal 1.0 and 2.0, but it is all the rest. This is every single part of government and every State Enterprise. Every single one of them are doing it and partly part of the growing corruption scandals. The root is rotten and the state is filled with people taking advantage of the situation.

The way to redeem it is to rebuild and make sure there is a legitimate government, a government representing the people, as they wished, not a computer generated President and his cabinet. This is a government created with forgery and faking PR Stunts, which borrows, steals and are indifferent to the public needs. The next generation will pay the cost for this thieving of public resources. This is sad and terrifying.

That Kenyatta and Ruto doesn’t care is evident as they are busy eating. Eating today and tomorrow. There is no return. No return from this, unless people actually acts towards their government and asks them for redemption. They are taken for granted and are misused on a daily basis. That is what the State House and government does to them. Get wealth on being in public office and spending time getting rich. Not building state institutions or better delivery of state services to the public. Peace.
