Another IEBC killing: This time the murder of IEBC Deputy RO Caroline Odinga of Siaya County!

Caroline Odinga, an Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Deputy Reporting Officer (RO) was found dead yesterday. Another strike of murder in the midst of the election quarrels that are in Kenya. This is not a sound regime, when yet another life is taken. In midst of hours after Election petition of National Super Alliance (NASA) to the Supreme Court, and the questioning of the legitimacy of the election. Since this question the incumbent and current President Uhuru Kenyatta.

There has already been people dead who were important in the days ahead of 8th August, as now the votes and counting are in question. This doesn’t help the Jubilee, as another murder and another questionable life ends. She was found in Sega town in Siaya County. This is a serious story, as it is another life taken to early, because of the general election in 2017. She was the Deputy Returning Officer for the County, so this an RO that has been killed. There been reports that she was mutilated and left in the bush.

The reckless violence, the killings are clear sign of the electoral malpractices, since the state has to cover-up their mismanagement and doing so by taking away witnesses. It is insane, but seems most likely. Caroline Odinga, is yet another victim and another family who has lost their loved one.

We can wonder why she was murdered, did she not want to sign of on fake 34(a) or 34(b), that is fitting with the IEBC bots of the Presidential Election? Was she not complicit to the forged results of the polling stations in her county? Is that the reason, what else it is? Since she would be there when the counting was happening and would verify the results. That is the only thing making sense at this point.

We cannot really know why or who did the killings, if the National Police Service will solve it. Since the connections to killings might be up high. This being said, since the IEBC killings are continuing and escalating. This should be evidence of the fraud that has to be covered up. The innocents are dying and the ones working for justice gets taken away, while the thieves and killers are lingering. This isn’t a healthy sign, but another sudden death without answers. The reasons might be plenty, but connections to forged forms and questionable electoral practices seems likely. That is worrying, that yet another life is taken away, so the Jubilee can continue their looting. Peace.

The Saga of the New Cancer Machine of Mulago was not a two-year scheme!

Let’s be honest and clear, the story of the Cobalt 60 Teletherapy Machine from the mid-90s, who was not sufficient and had not been changed within time. Was not a two-year long waiting period of nostalgia, it was mismanagement with the cost of lives and devastation. Any government caring about lives, would have planned and made sure of funding for a new one, long ahead, especially considering the last one was bought in the mid-1990s. This is the true acts of maladministration and misuse of state reserves. That is evident, and also that the Ministry of Health, who only had one these, couldn’t make sure the procurement went softly and made sure the facilities could be fixed in time to put in a new machine. Even if it matters of lives and people’s serious treatment.

Only two year?

“After almost two agonising years of waiting, cancer patients will breathe a sigh of relief after the new radiotherapy machine arrived into the country this week. It was shipped from Czech Republic through Mombasa port with guidance of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a United Nations body that regulates use of nuclear and atomic energy. Purchased at 642,000 euros (more than Shs2.7b) by both government and IAEA, the machine replaces the old cobalt 60 radiotherapy machine, which broke down beyond repair on March 27, 2016, leaving about 2,000 patients without proper treatment and some people died in the process” (Ainebyoona, 2017).

What about 2013:

Because I have a letter dated back to IAEA from Dr. Byahagaba from 28th May 2013, where the funding of 325,297 Euros was deposited to the UniCredit Bank, Austria, Vienna on the 22nd May 2013. This was funding for the purchase of Cobalt 60 Teletheraphy Machine. Therefore, the Daily Monitor or the Mulago Health Care Complex has given som wrong information.

If not the final instalment for the purchase of the machine has come in the aftermath, which is a significant sum of monies, since it is 315,000 Euros that has appeared and made sure the buying of the machine finally appeared.

This sort of acts should not let it go easily, that a state with millions of lives, that are in-charge of making sure their citizens are healthy. Only has one Cancer Machine and that one has been out of function for two years, and it took about at-least 4 years, since 2013 to be able to purchase the equipment and use it for the public benefit. Clearly, the National Resistance Movement (NRM). Isn’t worried about losing their citizens or making sure the health is in check. Surely, the do not worry, since the President sends his own kin abroad to give birth. He knows the meagre state of the facilities of where he has resided and run. He eats the reserves and leaves scraps behind. The evidence in the 4 years in the making of the Cancer Machine. It is good it is there, but the time and effort is mediocre at best. Nearly depleted and destructive, as the concern of the cancer wasn’t even there. Peace.

Jubilee Deregistered Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) because it scrutinized the Elections!

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto are some touchy fellas these days, you would think the incumbents after a marvelous victory, where the IEBC Portal continues to counts votes in their favor. Would be feeling secure and steady for another 5 year term. Instead they are weak and terrified human beings, who cannot handle critique. Therefore, on the 14th August 2017, they deregistered the Kenyan Human Rights Commission (KHRC).

This was done by the Fazul Mahamad of the NGOs Co-Ordination Board, which is under the leadership of CS Fred Matiang’i, has decided to punish the NGO for their crass criticism during the polls and also during the counting of the votes. Just the day before the inauguration, the new Jubilee Administration proves their dictatorial and controlling efforts. As they cannot even manage the critic of a KHRC!

Because of their words and their questioning of the Jubilee shootings and killings after the announcement of another term for Kenyatta, the state are now pushing the KHRC a bill of Ksh. 100 million. Also freezing all the funds of the accounts connected to the Organization, this done by the Central Bank of Kenya. So it claims it has gotten ill-gained banknotes, that now is sufficient with the fine put on the Human Rights Organization.

This all seem like a precision attack on an organization who is questioning the ill-adviced and the bad tempered government response to the rigged election. That they are hurting the innocent and will now also damage an independent organization.

CS Matiang’i really needs to show his mercy soon, because his legacy is already bloody, even in a short tenure as it has been. He has blamed NASA for everything, while he has had police officers bloody hands on his conscience. This should be well-known, and even if they can hurt one organization and dismantle the ones speaking-up. They cannot silence them all. They will just corner themselves and make sure the Jubilee, are revealing their looted gains and the borrowed funds that keeps their SUVs driving to Karen, Nairobi. Peace.
