IEBC – Media Update (20.04.2018)

Opinion: Is the IEBC scheming now, just to be prepare for 2022?

I feel I have been here before, as I see the shadow-games are playing behind the scenes and also in-front. The Independent Boundaries and Electoral Commission (IEBC), whatever Chairman Wafula Chebukati does now. He will not be able to wash of the grease of his hands. The dirt and dust will hang-on. That he suspended CEO Ezra Chiloba. Just looked like a PR move by the Electoral Body.

Now three fellow Commissioners has resigned, but not notified the Chairman, these was Consolata Nhakta, Paul Krugat and Margaret Mwachanya resigned on the 16th April 2018. We know that Chairman Chebukati, Commissioner Prof. Ayub Guliye and Boya Molu has pissed someone off. Since, they suddenly lost their Security Detail today.

The IEBC has had issues ever since Chickengate and the bribes the Commission back-then took. There wreck of an election in Burundi and so-on. That I have hard time believing the shenanigans from the IEBC is because of how they conducted themselves last year. It isn’t forgotten the tenders agreements for the ballots, the BVR Systems from OT Morpho, the Server directly connected to Cambridge Analytica, the use of Harris Media and so on. The skeletons of the rigging of last year is so vicious. The devastation and the massacre of free and fair elections.

Therefore, I don’t feel sorry for the fate that has befallen the men and woman on the top. That they have resigned and the ones losing their security detail, neither feeling bad for Chiloba. All of these people should answer to Kenyans for what they did and who they did it for. We all know that Jubilee Party and the two leaders on top is responsibility for it all. They are far from innocent, but they did it as ordered. They delivered the results they wanted announced from Bomas.

Whatever, that is playing out, seems more like cleaning show to make it legit for 2022. Make sure the IEBC looks better, like they tried to do before 2017. Even if the Chickgate leadership of Isaack Hassan had to get lost. The same sorts of sins was still within the walls. Chiloba and Chebukati followed the suit of the previous leadership. The difference, is how the leaks has shown how the IEBC has rigged and who they have used as partners.

That the IEBC doesn’t care about their legitimacy and trustworthiness within the public. That is evident by the disgraceful public persona Chebukati has become. The IEBC are acting more as villain, less as a hero. IEBC could have changed ways and even tried to audit itself. Hired someone more believing that KPMG, who has a lousy record even in South Africa. But that doesn’t matter to these fellow people, who are delivering the sanctity of the ballots.

Instead these people are playing games with the Republic. They are trying reconfigure the IEBC for their favors in 2022. They are trying to fix it in their way, so their people is behind the scenes. That is how it seems, like they might make more than 1 % more ballot-papers, they might use other tricks than from Cambridge Analytica. Who knows what sort of foul play they do next to fit the next master. Whatever it is, it won’t be respecting the ballots and the will of the people. They are only there to serve the political elite and the ones who they serve. They are not there for the people. Not the way it look these days.

To say otherwise is to be naive, we should give credit, where credit is due. Here there is no credit or debt and warning signs of default payments. They have not delivered what is promised to the people. To be named independent is the first lie, they are deeply connected to the Jubilee agenda. They are just trying to get away with that. Peace.

Opinion: DP Ruto shows his fear for Odinga as a possible PM!

During the homecoming party for International Trade Principal Secretary Chris Kiptoo at Chepkosom Primary School in Uasin Gishu County, Mr Ruto said the ongoing unity talks should benefit citizens not leaders. “Even if we amend the Constitution, it should not be for creation of positions like an executive prime minister,” he said. “Kenyans have the capacity to elect their leaders, not a few of us sitting in corners over a cup of tea and doing the selection.” The remarks come after a meeting between National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga and retired President Daniel arap Moi in Kabarak on Thursday last week” (Wycliff Kipsang – ‘Handshakes not meant for leadership posts: DP Ruto’ 16.04.2018, Daily Nation).

It is ironic, it is special, that someone like Deputy President William Ruto speaks of elections and people electing their leaders. When he has used foreign entities, when the Jubilee has juiced-up the Independent Boundaries and Electoral Commission (IEBC) to favor his needs within the two Presidential Elections in 2017. Therefore, he shouldn’t speak about selections of leadership, when he himself is rigged into power. That is throwing stones in a glass-house and he is bad at it.

DP Ruto should fear Odinga, even if Odinga gave-up Canaan. He might fear for the agreement Odinga made with Kibaki back in the day. But DP Ruto and Jubilee has made up roles for Chief Administrative Secretaries. These wasn’t made in the Constitution. So it is okay to amend when it is directly own cronies or political figures into new roles? But when your having partners and leaders from the outside of Jubilee, you cannot alter the Constitution or make provisions to make it work?

Not that Kenya needs an Executive Prime Minister, neither does it need any of the CAS. However, the Jubilee has hired the latter and could for peace sake give Odinga a ceremonial role. Though, it would be a hard time be a Minority Leader in the Senate as a Party and have a Cabinet position. That would mean Orengo would be packing and someone else, which isn’t ODM would become that. Surely, Aden Duale should react to all of this, not only Ruto who fears for the popularity of Odinga.

It is healthy to question it all, as the state shouldn’t get away it all, but neither should Odinga be silent on the matters. That is if he still is an opposition, if not he is totally compromised by the Handshake and the parlay gave way for the regime to do what they like. Ruto seems shaken and frighten… like he is worried about himself. Since he had to use the idea of an election. When he knows what he did to get power last year and should humbly kiss the shoes of Odinga for doing the handshake.

Instead, he does what he usually do, belittle others and trying to weasel himself more power. That is the DP does and has done perfectly well over the years. Now Odinga is the hit-piece again.

Maybe, someone who didn’t use the IEBC to rig himself in, shouldn’t be talking about electing people into leadership. He should be happy with a narrow selection of leadership over a cup of tea. He shouldn’t talk about democratic principals, when they doesn’t measure up, when talking about his own election victory in 2017. Peace.

A IEBC Mirage: Chiloba on leave again, but the system is still the same!

A mirage is a sort of optical illusion, a reflection of light that can trick the mind into interpreting the sight as an apparently solid thing. It makes sense, therefore, that the word mirage has its roots in the concept of vision. Mirage was borrowed into English at the dawn of the 19th century from the French verb mirer (“to look at”), which also gave us the word mirror. Mirer in turn derives from Latin mirari (“to wonder at”). Mirari is also the ancestor of the English words admire, miracle, and marvel, as well as the rare adjective mirific (meaning “marvelous”)” (Merriam-Webster – ‘Mirage’ 02.04.2018)

The Independent Boundaries and Electoral Commission (IEBC) announced today, that CEO Ezra Chiloba would be put on temporary leave after an internal review and report. This was a decision made by the Commissions Plenary Meeting on the 6th April 2018. Still, what is striking the reluctant attitude towards delivering any substance of reasons. This isn’t the first time the CEO Chiloba was put on this sort of leave, then he was chilling at a Hotel, while the Fresh Presidential Elections was on-going.

Not like the IEBC can be trusted, as the breaches, the server connected to Cambridge Analytica, the death of the ICT Manager Chris Msando, the tenders to OT Morpho for the fraud of BVR Equipment, combined with Safaricom and the ones already printing the ballots. The whole 2017 in the eyes of IEBC should be how to shatter all public trust in one institution. There was two rounds of Presidential Elections and none of them was trustworthy, because of all lacking performance of the IEBC. I don’t care if the Carter Center, American Ambassador or the IGAD/AU Mission praise the events.

The lack of respect for voter registration, the bounds of how many who could actually vote differed with times. The voter turnouts was extreme and abnormal, the evidence of corrupt forms and the lack of oversight was evident. As even parts of the political players gave-up following the IEBC and their inner-works, it was a shoddy display and lack of character. The display of ignorance and cooking the books was the mission of the IEBC. They worked so hard to make things official, but in the end. Only the naive or the ones paid to, would believe the numbers and the calculations. The 26th October 2017 and the 8th August Election 2017. Are two strikes of injustice done to the Kenyan people in favor of the Jubilee Party.

They can try to say, we are putting him on leave, so Chiloba can learn his lesson. But they have used that trick and it was all in vain. That because the system is made for rigging, because the political powers to be, want it rigged. Kenyatta and Ruto wanted it rigged and secured in their favor. They couldn’t care less about the will of the people. They are useful props in the Harris Media/Cambridge Analytica/PSCU messages and press releases. Rest of the time, they are just a hassle that comes with the job.

The IEBC cannot use the same mirage, the same trick twice, they did the same to him in October 2017. Now they are pulling the same plug in April 2018. Like we don’t know the IEBC is lying to us yet again. Because someone wants to push the agenda and make a forgery look real. It looks like Monet, but the brushes is not. It is a make believe, a copy and a fraud.

The IEBC has to work harder to be taken serious. We know they are a machinery to deliver the wanted results the Jubilee wants. To say something different would be taken as a fool. I prefer not to be, especially with knowledge of how these people rig the game. The end-game in favor of the rulers and policy makers.

The Chickengate brought down one part of the IEBC, but the not the part of the rigging, neither the part of suspect tenders and corporations ready to cook the books. So the IEBC got a lot of work to do and that does not involve playing tricks with society. Unless, that was the brightest idea Cambridge Analytica could come-up with. Peace.
