#WeKnowYourSalary: Its about revealing the misuse of their role as a Public Officials!

If you thought the revelations in Kenya on the Social Media was about showing the sky-rocketing pockets and the super-soaked wealth of the highest ranking officials in the Country. Your wrong, this isn’t to show how they went from being petty civil servants, preachers and whatnots a decade ago. No, this is to show how murky the grounds and how they have swindled the state. To become extravagant and wealthy.

This is how key public officials in both the counties, in the ministries and as parliamentarians are using their positions, their knowledge of trade and also creating tenders to secure wealth for themselves and their close-knit family. This is how someone working as procurement manager and also as MCA suddenly has a palace, dozens of cars and owning plenty of land. Just mere a year ago, he couldn’t even splash out on the pub on a round of beers. Now he can buy the bar and build a garage for his SUVs. That is what this is about.

Because this is about how the likes of Deputy President William Ruto can own a mansion complex, dozens of houses, a car-park, choppers and earning measly millions. This is about how the family of Kenyatta can own more and more businesses, while the state is lacking funds. This is how other Cabinet Secretaries goes from being poor to suddenly become billionaires. They are all suddenly well fortunate and able to build houses made of dreams. They can own cars that only are in magazines, they can own local hotels, farms, industry and even media if they have enough cash. This is people that is supposed to represent the people and serve them.

Not take from them and later charge them, not only take the taxes, but they are also eating of the profits in the private sectors. Nothing is holy. The Cabinet Secretaries, the President and DP knows this, the local government politicians knows this. The people deserve to know how the ones humble fellow human beings becomes richer than God. They become so wealthy, they can take the bank on a trip to Dubai and rent Lexus in Las Vegas. This being brothers who couldn’t even afford to share a chicken as students.

That is why this is important. To show the disgrace this officials are, how they are eating of the public and have no scrutiny. How they are emptying the state reserves and taking the public for granted. That is why they run for office. Not to represent anyone, but to pocket the taxpayers money, use the position in the state and also get corporate deals with the state. All of this to enrich themselves on the office, not to serve the community. That is just something they say to look good. But when the measures and the end of the day is shown, the bills and the tab will be on the state, while the public see very little, but the official will have the cake, the coffee and the bride. While the public will have the bread-crumbs. Peace.

Bitter-Sweet Sugar: Cartels total control and inaction of Jubilee – Contaminated imports for profits!

We can wonder and think, who in their right mind orders contaminated agricultural products, rebrand it and sell it on the open with a clear conscious. That is what should bugle us right now. That the Kenyan Authorities together with the Sugar Cartels are accepting this and profiting on it. If they hadn’t, they wouldn’t have ordered, imported and tried to sell it on the market to the consumers. That is what is up and happen as the minor stops of it. The people should be worried about the authorities and what they are exposed too on the daily basis. When they cannot even trust the white sugar they are consuming.

The Kenyan people should worry, that the illegal imports through Kismaayo of Somalia, the illegal cartels of Mombasa and other places are highly-connected has pocketed key figures of industry, ports and in the ministries. If it wasn’t so, they would have had more trouble with the law. They wouldn’t just take a load of contaminated sugar, they would have ceased more and banned this trade. However, the government are doing little except tough talk. Even Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i is supposed to die over this, but he will not stand-by his side-dish. So I doubt it.

It is like the Jubilee knows about the ill they are getting in, thinking of the profits and of the friendly owners of the millers. Without thinking about the citizens who possible consuming it and how it might hurt them. If it is contaminated, it might damage the body and even cause fatal ills for someone. Then someone dies over something as petty as illegal and deadly sugar. Has that even been considered? Wouldn’t that been an avoidable tragedy?

That the government, the agencies and the authorities in general haven’t delivered is obvious, while this is not only hurting the average citizen. Who could be worried about going to the market and supermarket to pick a kilo of sugar. But also the farmers who produce for the millers. They don’t know if the millers and the authorities is helping to sell second-level or third-level products from afar. While rebranding it with their labels, like the ones that comes from the local producers. Then the public will loose trust with the millers who makes this sugar.

This here is the proof of how not to run, how not to delegate and not to use the oversight role as government, as they are misusing power, being in bed with the cartels and not giving a fig about the population. Because if they know they are illegally importing through Mombasa and Kismaayo, the authorities should stop it and get rid of it. Not let it go, let it be rebranded and made ready for the market. Because then the suppliers, the supermarkets and the consumers all loose on it. Only the Sugar Cartels and the Importers earns on it.

They are spiking, they are playing and coming with a dangerous product that shouldn’t be consumed by people. It should be used for matters, if not just confiscated and destroyed at arrival. Than ask for reparation of damages and possible breaches of contract, as they we’re not given edible sugar. But dangerous ones, that shouldn’t be produced in the first place. 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.

Kenya National Police Service Press Release on the Al Shabab (07.06.2018)

Kenyatta’s Corruption Drive goes after low-level civil servants, but will not touch high ranking officials!

Today the Press Statement released by Government Spokesperson Mwenda Njoka ‘Presidential Proclamation On Fresh Vetting of Public Interest’. This is in regard to the Heads of the Procurement and Accounting Unites within the Ministries, Agencies and State Corporations. Therefore, it is the lower level heads and accountants that is battle against the corruption now. Instead of questioning the Cabinet Secretaries, the Deputies and the boards, the close stakeholders of the State Corporations. They are all scotch free from these.

This is the reality of the Kenyan affairs, they are cleaning house sort off. When I say sort of, it is that they are going after lower levels. They are taking the bottom-feeders and not the high-level people who are really involved. Possibly they would find someone who has cheated on tenders and skimmed minor funds within their budget. That is bad as well, but they are not the reason for the scandals of day. They are not the reason behind the Maize, KHIF, NYS, Afay House and so on. There are so many government scandals and so much grand corruption. That this is the CS, Deputy President and the President whose major reason for the scandals. They have accept it and surely topped off on it.

It is hard to believe that all these major funds, all these state corporations and the ministries are losing money, have so much unaccounted funds, paying services to ghost companies and ghost tenders. So the list goes on. The open heist of funds that was supposed to go to the citizens and their needs. Are instead pocketed by the leaders on top and the ones running the state corporations. That is how they have gone from mediocre businessmen to wealthy owners of conglomerates.

This is just what they do, they skim of the funds on top and play around with the accounting. That is all really evident on the matter of the grand corruption scandals that has hit the Jubilee Administration. They are just continuing their thieving. The latest is just another show to prove that they fight it, but as long as the big-fish. As long as the Cabinet Secretaries, the CEOs, the Directors and the Chairmen are not taken. Not litigated, not detained, then they are not serious in the battle.

However, that will not happen as long as the President and Deputy President are eating themselves. They have gotten quickly vast wealth since getting into office. That is not just a coincidence. This is calculated by the Jubilee. Something this move is as well since they are going for the lower levels. It is a nice signal. But have little faith that it will go really further. Since then they are going into the pockets on the top of the food-chain.

Would they arrest and detain the Deputy President and even the President? Would they arrest and get rid of corrupt Cabinet Secretaries? Would they?

If they did, then their might be change, but as long as the people who are on top get away. Then there is less incentive to really stop it. Really make a difference. Then your just working to get to the top. Because, then you can eat yourself without fear of prosecution. Peace.

Kenya: Press Statement on Presidential Proclamation on Fresh Vetting of Public Officers (04.06.2018)

Kenyatta’s fury against Corruption is getting old!

Today, I want to address myself to these enemies, who must be boldly confronted by all Kenyans of goodwill in the same manner our forefathers resolved to join hands in the fight against colonialism” (…) “While the challenge may look huge because of the way corruption has become entrenched in some of our people today, we have to declare in unison that corruption in all its forms will be diminished from our country.  Like colonialism was defeated, so will we defeat corruption” (…) “The Director of Public Prosecutions, the Police, and other institutions in the multi-agency team against corruption are on the move.  They are making decisive steps to build strong cases for the prosecution of corrupt officials” (…) “I welcome the assurance of the Judiciary’s leadership that they are with the rest of Government, and all Kenyans, in this war for our integrity as a country” (President Uhuru Kenyatta speech on Madaraka Day 2018, 01.07.2018).

Man, I am getting tired of the rewind, on another one; he has become just like DJ Khaled. Making the same songs, just mixing it with different artists and blending it with other beats. That is what President Uhuru Kenyatta does, when talking about Corruption. We have soon heard all the ways that it is possible to be working against it. Without any significant changes, unless your petty theft and taking a minor sum, you will be held accountable, but if you steal the bank. Your most likely one of his cronies or close associates.

President Kenyatta can speak fiercely against it, but his actions isn’t, there isn’t anything on the horizon or shadow of a doubt, that the ones taking the Eurobonds, NYS 1.0 or NYS 2.0 will get away with it. Because the ones who has done are still in office and enjoying life. There isn’t anything stopping it and the corrupt behavior is tradition and not problem. Unless you’re a low-level employee, then you might be charged and serve time. But if your on the top and taking the huge loads of funds, your walking to the bank and just slapped with meagre fine of some kind. Like stealing ten millions but fined one million, meaning in practical sense earned nine million shillings.

I have hard time believing Kenyatta, nothing in his first term, neither in the second has shown some real effort or care on the matter. It is only talk. Talk, empty threats and talk. The emptiness and pettiness is more of empty beer bottles and a plan of sudden death. Than actually policies and reflections on the matter. This is just harsh words with no substance, he could be speaking about everything else in the world. But he choose this, to act tough, but instead he looks like fool.

Promising changes, but delivering same. Promising grand development and delivering repainted structures. You can lie once, you can lie twice, but not a third time. We got you.

Tired of the rhetoric and words. They are meaningless, pointless and just noise. Stop it. Act for once. Peace.
