Opinion: It was Sonko’s turn, apparently…

Arresting Nairobi City County Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko will not solve anything. Neither will it change the ways this are done. Governor Sonko has just followed the footsteps of the previous governors and County Officials. Not it’s righteous or make it right to steal from the public coffers, but that is ingrained in the system. There was no significant change from Evans Kidero or anyone else before him.

The Presser of DPP Noordin Haji and his arrest order of Sonko will not do a big whoop in Nairobi. Than, the whole political elite and all the stakeholders has to change overnight. As they are working as business as usual. Yes, Sonko is a thief, his comrades is involved and his misused power. Nevertheless, in Nairobi, who hasn’t and who of the political elite isn’t benefitting at this current moment?

It is not like the slum-dwellers nor the citizens outside the posh areas feels significant changes from who reside as the Governor. It is just another head and another big-man, who has his time to eat. That isn’t inspiring nor justification for what Sonko did, but he does what everyone before him has done too in this role. Land grabbing, putting associates on County Boards and appointing friends as county officials. That is just what they do.

Before he got elected, he had already been convicted and a run-away prisoner too. So, he knows the rule of law and know what it entails to break it. He has served a stint behind bars and that’s not new to him.

If his corrupt, than his just as blimy and outrageous as plenty of the government officials and the ones running the Jubilee government. Not like the Jubilee have gone long and far between corruption scandals, neither the mere scope and the amounts of grand corruption too.

Therefore, Sonko has to answer for his misdeeds, unless they are baseless and taken out proportions. Some even claim this is the sins of the previous administration and Sonko trying to clear the bill. But that is up for his legal aid to defend the man.

Sonko’s time was up and suddenly he had to appear. Somehow, it isn’t far from being a high ranking official to be answering in courts. Even Cabinet Secretaries has gone from High Ranking Officials to felons overnight. Therefore, that Sonko does it now isn’t that special.

His just one con down, more to go. Wouldn’t be shocked if he got caught slipping and had cases against him with viable evidence. However, that is up to the courts of if the DPP has his paper-trail in order. It wouldn’t be shocking if Sonko got caught doing some illegal bidding and some tenders out of whack. That just meant he was the perfect target at this very moment.

Since the DPP and other agencies has targeted less friendly faces and ensured they have a bad day. Like Hassan Joho of Mombasa has already been under fire for other reasons. Therefore, that Sonko is in trouble today isn’t a sudden new trick of the sleeve. More another play and to show that someone gets charged for corruption.

If this plays out well and not a PR stunt, than the DPP and EACC has done their best. If he just get free and the case is dismissed. Than it was just a play for the façade and hoping that no one notice the charade. However, that is to early to know.

Nevertheless, when you elect a crook and a thief, don’t expect him to not steal. He will not turn into a preacher man and a saint, when he has already been charged with it in the past. That should be public knowledge and common sense, but apparently is not. Peace.

Nairobi City County: Office of the Governor – Press Statement over DPP’s Arrest Order (06.12.2019)

Kenya: office of the Director of Public Prosecutions Statement on Allegations of Corruption in Nairobi County Government (06.12.2019)

Opinion: CS Rotrich is the fall-guy for the Jubilee right now!

If your believing that Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji and the Director of Criminal Investigation George Kinoti is going to finish the investigation in the Arror and Kimwarer dam scandal. As of today, the DPP launched arrests of several of high ranking officials including the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Henry Rotrich. However, I am not convinced they will see this through, because if they do. They will go to the heart of the government and these fellas don’t want to do that!

The Jubilee Government is one of the most corrupt governments in living memory, they have been feeding all sorts of cartels and rigged themselves into power. That is why the whole Press Conference now, seems like a play for the facade and not for the results. Not, that I don’t want the men and woman who are corrupt behind bars. I do, they still the public’s money and eat of the plate of all the citizens without any consequences. In this case, it seems more like all the smoke and no fire.

There is a fire initially, as there are two ghost dams and the state paid for them through a illegal tender process and payouts, which the state cannot establish where it went. Even if there is guesses of the final destination. That is still not touched and won’t be unless there is a miracle. Not like the Finance Minister and all the other parties involved worked on this silence without getting clear guidance and telling the high above about it. That would be foolish to think otherwise, that the Deputy President and President didn’t know. This was well established projects with beneficiaries and had directed overpriced structure to benefit the masterminds on the top.

Therefore, that Haji and other busy bodies, that usually tend to make a stand. Does it again, is to show some flair and tenacity in the spectrum of the world. That the War on Corruption is real and that they will not stop. However, they will stop and suddenly, evidence will vanish, affidavits will be dismissed and the Courts will not have enough to build a case or even prosecute anyone. If we have seen that before? Yes! Will it happen in this case? Most likely. Why? Because, these men is part of elite, the tribe that always win, even when they loose their able to strike a win. That is just what they do.

We can act like it isn’t like this. We can act like this is a victory against corruption. When it really isn’t, yes it has created headlines and even will make a cabinet reshuffle to take the seat of Rotrich. His just the current figure to jump on the sword for the high and mighty excellencies whose not touched or even cared for. Even if there is a big chunk of funds that has vanished from planet earth, taken out from a mysterious account and no-one can trace it. Know, that this fella will not be caught, because his untouchable. Kinoti and Haji wouldn’t face that, because then they will sacked and only get a minor commission job after a year of grace.

So, I am cynical, I don’t expect a blast. I don’t expect all this big-men to eat the charges and get into long legal trouble. Even if the DPP dropped several of counts of crimes and broken statutes, the DPP and the DCI needs to have their bases clear and also the thumbs up from the high above. Because, you cannot bring down men-of-honour without the blessing from the top. No, it has to be coordinated and the ones who is in trouble. Will maybe pay a little, but don’t expect it to scratch the surface. As they don’t want to implicate or deliver any information covering the people in the shadow or even the ones who cannot be touched. No, they will not do that, then they would be afraid of their last breath. That is just the way things are. Not beautiful, but greedy suits going into a dangerous path. Unless, the state screws it all up and looses the connecting dots. Which wouldn’t surprise anyone.

Well, so how about that UNGA then, will that CS answer for his misdeeds too or is Rotrich the only fall guy this week? Peace.

DPP’s Press Statement on Ruling of Deputy Chief Justice Philemona Mwilu Case (31.05.2019)

Opinion: 7 Billion reasons not to trust Ruto!

Well, the DPP Noordin Haji dropped ball today and again stated there was Ksh. 21 billion gone missing building a ghost dams. As the DCI George Kinoti have questioned Treasury CS Henry Rotich about the money. However, in the midst of all this drama and alleged crimes. There is one obvious man, whose not under direct threat. That is the Deputy President William Ruto.

Even if Ruto has claimed, that there has only gone missing Ksh. 7 billion shillings, which is bad enough at this rate. As there is no construction and no imminent building site. There is only a paper-trail of evidence and lots of businesses getting tenders and money from the state. But no direct building of a dam.

The DPP have dropped a long list of questionable acts concerning the dams, there been several of companies involved too. In such a manner, it takes a whole village and town to build a dam. You need more companies to build a dam, than the amount of companies you need to develop the Big Four. Because, if the state used the same energy siphoning funds out of ghosts dams. The Kenyan Republic would be highly developed by a landslide.

Alas, that is not the case, the authorities are going in circles, they are pushing strings, but not digging deep. They are not questioning DP Ruto or any of his close allies. Because, that would initially trigger problems for the President too. Therefore, they are instead blaming Rotich for allocating the money and not keeping track-off it. Even if that has been fine in bigger scandals and when the regime been steady eating.

Ruto have no trouble lying, deceiving or even playing stupid. As long as his back-account get pregnant. It will be nursery within months and even escalate further if given the chance. The Ghost Dams scandal is just the freshest and biggest for while. In a month or two, there will be plenty of more ghost, frauds and other graft scandals to catch out attention.

Right now it is dams, which are paid by the state, but not existing. Just like the stadiums, but they didn’t blow the cash on them yet. That was just an empty pledge. This was a supposed building site and a development project. Instead, it is a bonanza of ignorance and plight, dishonesty and travesty, which is traditional in the sense of the guys, running Kenya at the moment.

Ruto thinks he can outsmart or act cool about it all. That he is untouchable, that he is the King. That he is might soldier, the almighty knight who are the shield and the noblest amongst men. However, he is neither, he is just crook with a fancy office. He misuses his power and eats, he tricks and he speculate on the ignorance of others. He configure the political landscape and triggers the needs of others, to gain mileage. That is what he does and he has done it perfectly.

Nevertheless, the gig is up. We know he lies and steals, it is an open-air bazaar at this point. There are no denying that. There are 7 billions reasons not to believe him now. The endless lies and trying to deflect, trying to act righteous is a forgotten game. This tale got to end. We have been here before and its not funny. It is tragic, because this taxpayers, this is donors and this is wherever the state got the revenue from and it was spoilt, taken and stolen. Before ending at supposed project for the benefit of the Republic. Instead it got pocketed and now he culprits are lying through their teeth and trying to blind people while buying time. Its getting old.

As stated, there is 7 billions reasons not to trust Ruto now. He has exposed himself and his acts. As the DCI and DPP have stated otherwise. That must hurt the pride of the Hustler. He better hustle, and do it better, because at the moment. He just sucks. Peace.

The Untouchable Ojienda!

There are sometimes and somewhere, someone who has such connections and place in society, that they are untouchable. Professor Tom Ojienda is the Chairperson of the Judicial Service Commission of Kenya, he is also the former Chair of the Law Society of Kenya.

Tom is a Special Counsel, so the man has a unique place in the Republic. That has been evident over the last few days. Just within short time, the Department of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and Department of Public Prosecution (DPP) had to both fold an alleged fraud case against the man. This being illegal obtaining of funds from Mumias Sugar Company. Clearly, he has such a position, that the Courts are barring his case. This because he sits on top of the JSC.

We are seeing a game, where the elites, the ones on top of the food-chain can possibly eat and live lavish on other people’s dime. Misuse their position and still get away with it. Even as the DPP have found evidence of corrupt activity, the Courts are dismissing the case. That shows how bad the society is.

This isn’t just about Tom, this is about the failing judiciary and the failing rule of law. When someone is above the system and cannot be touched. Because, the Case against him could be barred in the High Court. Which is really unique, in the circumstances and what we have seen. We are clearly seeing that Tom is something else. Since, he is now out and about, even with the questionable cash obtained through Mumias.

That shows how his prestige and position, means that he can differs from the law, which he presides as a Special Counsel and part of the JSC. Therefore, as part of the clientele on top, he cannot really be touched.

If Tom had been an ordinary crook, he would have suffered behind bars and awaiting sentencing. However, Tom is high-ranking official and a lawyer. Therefore, the system has to be careful, as he can unveil or even reveal matters to the courts. That is why the case is stalled, that is why he isn’t touched.

This story isn’t cool, but more a friendly reminder, that some people have suction and doesn’t need to worry. Tom Ojienda is one of them.

The Republic see it and even if Tom thinks his off the hook. As long as he gets away with it. People will see him as a crook. Until it is really proven, that he never took. Peace.

Just read this nonsense of Charge Sheet. It says it all!

Kenya Defence Force: KDF Operational Update – Lamu County (24.09.2018)

Kenya: National Coalition – Urgent Alert on Disappearance of Human Rights Defender Mildred Atty Owiso (29.05.2018)

DP Ruto: Your gig is up!

Deputy President William Ruto is one of a kind. The kind that uses fine words and speeches, the ones are defending values, but his actions differs from that. He has finessed the game, using his influence and his value in the system to gain monetary funds. This at a rampant speed, that the check-books cannot recover or even account for the funds. His play-by-play book is made for unaccounted funds and for forging results.

Therefore, a man who has earned a well-fortunate salary in his position, still his wealth over the years has risen astronomically. His houses, his business and his ownership is like a Jeff Bezos of Kenya. The DP has a village called home, own newspapers and whatnot, who knows he has gotten in his hands and pockets. It’s like a giant fountain of money that spiralling in his veins.

He is the guy that praises the rule of law, but orders to not respect the court orders. He is the sort of man who speaks of fighting corruption, but is corrupt as hell. He is the sort of man who speaks of accountability and transparency, while he himself accepts bribes, graft and unaccounted funds in boatloads. He is the man who speaks in twisted tongue, but expect people to speak honest to him.

DP Ruto, we know you now, we know what your up too. We have seen it for years. It isn’t cool anymore, we know that your in your place for one reason, not to serve Kenya, but serve yourself. You are in position to enrichen yourself and your family, not to be representative for Kenya. If it had been so, you wouldn’t be the famous hustler and the famous go-to-get wealthy politician vibe. Because that is true.

We know you own K24, The Star, Karen Homes, Osere flats in Rongai, Major Amaco Insurance, Oseng Properties Limited, Orterter Enterprises Limited, Weston Hotel, 680 Hotel and Uasin Gishu Residence. This you have gotten on your meagre salary. Billions upon billions in property and ownerships of companies, while earning only millions. You cannot make this up. You have also bought a copper and whatnots of cars within your time in office. Therefore, we know you speak, but do financial warfare.

So please, don’t speak ill of corruption, when you’re the benefactor and owner of it. It wouldn’t be like this if your salary and your benefits was sincere, if your role in government and wealth was real, as your eating like there is no tomorrow. Grabbing whatever possession there is and taking it. We see that, as step by step your grabbing ownership of vital plots, of vital news organizations and also producers, which will generate more income. But in the first place, you shouldn’t have the capacity or wealth to be able to get these. Your not earning enough to be here.

So the gig is up. We know you. You can speak those fine words. But we know the reality, the fantasy is all in your mind. We know that and you cannot say otherwise. We know you will, but it is valued as nothing. None. Okay?

Just stop, it is not funny. Peace.
