Kenya Health Professionals Society (KHPS): Joint Press Statement on COVID 19 in Kenya (01.07.2020)

FORD-Kenya: Press Statement (29.06.2020)

Opinion: Kalonzo is a lackey awaiting his envelope

If you don’t know, now you know. It is now proven again that Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka, the former NASA Co-Principal Leader and Wiper Democratic Movement leader are no in co-operation with the Jubilee Party and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

That is not shocking, as he was already aligned from the moment he accepted the Special Envoy to South Sudan. From that moment you knew he was going away from being opposition and into the chambers of power. He does it all on selfish gains.

Kalonzo has changed homes before to get ahead. That he would do this again isn’t new. That is in his character. That is why his a lackey. His the perfect lackey. The sort of man that will profess loyalty, speak honourably about His Excellency and all of their projects.

Just like he switched from KANU, Liberal Democratic Party, NARC Coalition, Orange Democratic Movement, also CORD and NASA Coalitions. This man has jumped ship and done so for personal gains so many times. That this cooperation deal now follows a clear pattern for Kalonzo.

Kalonzo just needs a safe-haven, a place of refuge and security. He will speak of all the gospels and tales of fortune. Kalonzo will preach and be a holy man for the cause. A useful tool for the operation. Kenyatta got a man who will profess all loyalty and be there for him.

That’s why his a lackey. A hard-working lackey.

Kalonzo is now a man of the Jubilee, a man of the party and a voice of the government. His not an opposition. Even if he claims his still part of NASA. While he has signed a deal with Jubilee. You cannot make this up. That is how bonkers things are. Just like the handshake have made Raila Odinga a pseudo-governmental-official too. They are both compromised and eating on the plate of the state.

Kalonzo is just the one getting traded for bargaining chips, while Odinga gets the big-budget. Odinga butchered the NASA with his handshake, we all saw that, but now we see what it does to Kalonzo too.

Kenyatta is able to get everyone under his wings and steer the future at his call. Sign agreements, coalitions and ensure everyone is loyal to Jubilee.

It is all simple trade-offs. The ones getting the least is Kalonzo. However, he don’t mind. His only a lackey anyway. Peace.

WikiLeaks: The Kenyan leak [If it is from 2013 or today] is still bloody

The Wikileaks release today is kind of weird and a spectacle at once. The documents are both old reports, internal confidential documents, inner-party strategies and whatnot from years already passed. These documents are clearly leaked for a reason. That is to hurt the candidacy of Raila Odinga.

Not that Odinga needs anyone to destroy his career or his own campaigns. His in the limbo as it is and his own tactical movements are now so self-centred that these documents will not challenge it. That this shows how the politicians in Kenya operates. Is just an important insight. That it also drops documents like the leak of John Githongo on Anglo Leasing from back-in-the-day.

That people are saying these documents are vindicating William Ruto, I would beg to differ. There is still the list of his planned violence and execution of it in the post-election violence. The case that ceased and was suspended in the International Criminal Court (ICC). His named a problem by the ODM, while he was at ODM. Which is really a weird stance, but maybe they knew he was a renegade and only there on borrowed time?

Well, these documents are not good for anyone involved. None is coming scratched free. It is showing how to get away with murder, land-grabbing and rigging elections. There is nothing here that is positive or shed a light of hope. These documents are just damaging. No mater what date they are made and prefixed for.

It is not like these documents are good for the President either. None of the power trio of Kenyatta, Ruto or Odinga gets a stellar performance out of this. Yes, Odinga is in the front and centre of this leak. The documents are showing his plans and such. The Kibaki documents shows their plans as well ahead. Not like these are shedding lights on things that usually would have been hidden or not discussed in the open. Just like some of the leaks from Cambridge Analytica during the last General Election. There would have been more if the opposition had pushed and pressured for the release from the IEBC. However, they settled and that’s why the Jubilee is having a field-day in office.

All of this should be a lesson, that the game of politics for some is either for the long-con or the short-con. Some its for the greater good and for some its just personal gain. These documents proves that Baba isn’t the ultimate statesmen, but just another hustler. Ruto is a corrupt man. That’s not news, but the reality is that Odinga and Kenyatta has enough fatalities to answer for themselves too.

Odinga and the ODM had clearly plans. They wanted to achieve certain goals by all means. Just like the PNU and the Jubilee now. Yes, this leak shows how Odinga and the ODM was bankrolled by the Republican Party, people behind the Anglo Leasing and Goldberg scandal. So his crying loud against corruption. His money is tainted too. That just for the record now. We can wonder who else has given him cash to campaign in the past.

Therefore, this leak is vital and important. Yes, it has its eyes on Odinga. You can really wonder how this would look if it was aimed at Kenyatta or Ruto. What sort of detail, documents and information that would have been leaked. Then their secrets, their trade-offs and shunning details which has transpired in the past. Ruto and Kenyatta has much more hidden, which would have been explosive too.

Some ODM supporters are playing the dates, the supposed leak of 2013 on this one. I wonder if they would have had such questions, if this was about Ruto or Kenyatta? You go figure, right?

Well, this WikiLeaks are important, because it shows some insights. It breaks down a few barriers. It shows some dirty laundry. However, it is not the full picture, but it gives way to us. It shows sides to people, which we wouldn’t have gotten on the traditional way. No way in hell the ODM or the other political actors would have released this. They would have kept this hidden or hoped it was destroyed already. Peace.

Kenya: Moses Kuria MP letter – Re: Removal from Transport, Infrastructure, Public Works & Housing Committee (08.06.2020)

Kenya: Head of Public Service Dr. Joseph Kinyua letter to all CSs – Executive Order No. 1 of 2020 – The Organization of Government (27.05.2020)

Opinion: Is DP Ruto ready to be as important as the Ugandan VP?

The President, Uhuru Kenyatta has issued an Executive Order restructuring government and in the end abolished the Presidency. He has put the Deputy President William Ruto and taken away his office in a way. The Deputy is stripped out of power to reign on his own, but under his authority.

The DP has to now get the yes from the Public Service to hire people. The DP has to get the blessings of others. Ruto will not run the shop on his own. William has to ask the Head of Public Service Dr. Joseph Kinyua holds the key to whose allowed to be working for the DP now. The DP can file in the forms together with his team, but the final say will be the Head. This is really demoting the DP to its core.

The DP is becoming as relevant as Vice President Edward Ssekandi of Uganda. Yes, his the longest serving of the VPs in the Republic of Uganda. However, his role is all ceremonial and the Prime Minister has more power. Just like CS Fred Matiang’i can be seen as unofficial Prime Minister. Also with the pseudo high ranking official Raila Odinga. Nevertheless, the Ruto is becoming Ssekandi of Kenya.

An to become a man of Ssekandi, your not powerful neither are you respected either. You have a title, a salary and are in office. Your supposed to show no intent of will for more power, neither ambition for the highest office.

The DP from now on will be on stages as a puppet and an underling of the President. The DP will only be there as a man of functions, not of a man of a high office. His Codename the Cleaner, the Master Fixer and the Hustler, but he has no power.

He will be flamboyant in speeches, cut ropes and be like a big-man. Might continue to work for the progress of the Big Four and the government programs. Whatever the DP got to do is on the mercy of the President, who decides how big of a budget and his staff.

This makes the DP like the VP of Uganda. Both just ceremonial cadres, people with a big title, nice wheels and smart suits. However, they are both there because the President needs some underlings, but not opposing as such.

Ruto has lost his wings. Tanga Tanga is already wiped out of important roles within the National Assembly and this is yet another L for Ruto. He cannot win these days and the President has taken every step in the book to make him lesser and less relevant. His power and office is shrinking.

Soon Ruto only have the ability meet and greet people, when the President and the Public Service allows him to do so. Since, his already under him and the President decides.

That is a clear message. Ruto is the Ssekandi of Kenya. Hope he enjoys speeches in church meetings, funerals and such. Because that his role. He will be there to also open up new facilities when the President doesn’t have the time or represent in his stead. If the President is to busy, then its Ruto’s turn to show up.

The Second in Command, but also the first loser. He continues to take them L’s and … his relevancy is shrinking quicker than he can grasp. Peace.
