The NASA Break-Up is Official Part II: Mudavadi says goodbye too!

Just as anticipated, but the Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi is saying goodbye to Raila Odinga and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM). This is happening the day after FORD-K leader Moses Wetang’ula said the same yesterday. They are both sounding like Raila’s Ex-Girlfriends. Instead of looking into their own failures, like career politicians they are blaming Odinga for his pact with Kenyatta.

While Mudavadi is a conning politician, he was riding the popularity and the shining sun in 2017. This while the National Super Alliance (NASA) was relevant and the ideas of political was worth it. Now, that the Canaan project is suspended and dead, the alliance is falling to pieces too. This not only because of the Kenyatta-Odinga pact, which Mudavadi ridiculed today. He should have a little more ice, because Odinga outsmarted the NASA Co-Principals after they betrayed him. That is all known, but still Mudavadi and Wetangula has acted with disrespect, while Odinga hasn’t retaliated.

I struggle to sympathy for someone says this sort of things in Church on a Sunday. Using his platform and space to attack Odinga, now that he isn’t a Co-Principal and saying “goodbye”.

Mudavadi is really following Wetang’ula, but it is not grown. Neither unexpected, since this was in cards. That Mudavadi would retaliate was to be expected, even if he feels sour about the pact. He should look into his own inaction, when Odinga needed it the most, when he was swearing-in on the 30th January 2018. When Mudavadi was busy scheming and finding ways of being opposition without any cost. That I don’t like the pact either by Odinga and Kenyatta, is another thing, but Mudavadi wish he was a part of it. Therefore, the dream of Canaan is super-dead today, even as Jesus has risen from the dead. But, that will not revive the dream of another Kenya right now. Unless, something changes and the elites not continue to eat.

The political class and dynasties has taken control again, left everyone else behind. That is why this is so infuriating. That the Odinga-Kenyatta families continues to control the politics and everyone else follow suit. That Wetang’ula and Mudavadi is now breaking from NASA. Is something that could be anticipated since the Swearing-In. They already showed lack of loyalty. That Odinga found a way out for himself and his party, also could be expected. Even if it would more of a legacy, if he had followed the course. Fought and continue to fight the system, instead of offering it legitimacy.

That Odinga lost Mudavadi and Wetang’ula, isn’t a direct big-loss now, since he has more to do with the Jubilee, than with them. He is more inclined to deliver within the parameters of the dialogue. Not be specific and save the disloyal Co-Principals. That is also understandable, even if the whole project of dialogue and talks is flawed. Because, it is only going skin-deep and not fixing the issues that gave the rigged government all powers.

That is why the opposition of Odinga-Kenyatta pact could now galvanize the public. But not that I believe these Co-Principals has it in them. There is need for fresh blood and not more of the old political scheming elite, whose only ways to eat. Not to deliver policies or direct changes of governance or respecting institutions. Mudavadi belongs in that bracket and always been fishing for someone to hook him up with some power. Now, Odinga has left him behind. Therefore, he can break-way, but not directly see his new path.

Mudavadi has to reinvent himself, he just looks like a fisherman trying to catch a fish, either by nets or by hooks. Certainly, not a good look. He looked for the long-con by ditching the Swearing-In and now has to find the short-con to find a way. That will not be Canaan, but something else. What that will be is most likely a way to fill his plate and have a fancy stake on the state reserves. Peace.

The NASA Break-Up is Official: Wetang’ula saying goodbye!

Today, it is official, the National Super Alliance is officially scrapped and the project is doomed. That has been known for a while, but be exact, the cracks was there. When the likes of Moses Wetangula, Musalia Mudavadi and Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka. All of them was not to be seen at the Swearing-In of Raila Odinga as the President on the 30th January 2018. Therefore, the words of Wetangula today cannot be seen as sincere.

It is okay to see Wetangula is hurt, he has lost the post within the Senate to Orange Democratic Movement James Orengo. That must hurt his pride, but he himself bailed on the NASA project, when not showing up at Uhuru Park. The reason why Wetangula feels betrayed is that Odinga was able to outsmart him and make a deal with Kenyatta on the 9th March 2018. While leaving all the Co-Principals behind. I don’t blame, I don’t, but he shouldn’t talk about urination and feel to tricked.

Wetangula was part of trio under Odinga, who bailed him when he needed them the most. They didn’t stand behind in or even tried to show support. The ones that did that, ended either with loss of weapons license, deported or even detained while the NASA was seen as illegal group by the Ministry of Interior and CS Fred Matiangi. However, that is totally lost on the former Co-Principal.

Just as the talks of union between the parties of Mudavadi and Wetangula, the third one is busy re-branding his party. Therefore, the trio is trying to find their post-NASA now. They are seeking relevance. The way Wetangula is doing it, is by trying to tarnish Odinga. Yes, Odinga bought himself freedom and sold the cause. However, by the actions of the Co-Principals, they didn’t really believe in either. If they did, they would have reacted when the People’s Assemblies was suspended. When the deal was made and tried to find solutions. Instead, they have been following when it seemed profitable, but today, Wetangula seems determined to walk away from it all.

I don’t blame Wetangula, that he wasn’t part of the deal with Kenyatta, that none of the trio was a part of it. But Odinga didn’t really have these men support. When didn’t show up in need or really showing direct support. As the ODM are the biggest party in the coalition and the ones with the most to loose. Not, that Wetangula see that figure out in the coalition agreement. It seeming all about him and his post. That is why people are throwing shade his way. The humiliation of losing the position in the senate. Instead of wondering himself, if his own inaction shouldn’t cost for him too?

Not that I like that Odinga gave up Canaan for own self interests. But I don’t like hypocrites either. This is that, when Wetangula attacks Odinga and put the blame directly only on him. Without looking into the ones cracking the bottle, showing the true intent and gave way for Odinga to walk on his own. If the Co-Principals had been by him on the Swearing-In, while the bridges was burning and the risks was all time high. The coalition would have made sense, but after that. There was for each one of them to find their own. Since the sincerity of it all. Went down the drain with train with the lack of courage.

So now that the storm of the Swearing-In has gone, there is a months time since the handshake, the reality is that knives are now out. The lack of loyalty to cause is the reason. Many has given it up and the pipe-dream it all was. The Political Dynasties took again control and left the ones believing in good governance behind. Not that is Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka or Wetangula, because they didn’t have heart to stay in the storm. They didn’t leave harbor to find the angry sea to hard to cross.

Certainly, I could have been more apologetic, but in this case, its not worth it. They are trying to find ways to eat, without caring how well-rigged the recent elections was and how many who got hurt by the 26th October 2017 elections, neither how much interference by Cambridge Analytica, Harris Media and other companies hired by the Jubilee. To alter and fix the needed results the President needed. If the opposition leaders had worked on that and tried to find the truth. It would have made sense, but they are scheming to find the new path to a thicker pocket. It isn’t cute, it disgusting.

Now, the Co-Principals are putting the blame-game on Odinga. But first they should look into themeselves. Not because it is about Odinga, but because their own in-actions matters too. Peace.

Miguna Case goes bananas with the defenses from Matiangi, Kihalangwa and Boinnet!

Today, the three fellow dignitaries that was in-charge of deporting Miguna Miguna back to Canada for the Second showed up to Court. Not that it really mattered, because it is farce and the saga continues. They act still with contempt and the show of illegitimacy of their activity, the answers of the CS Fred Matiangi, the Immigration PS Gordon Kihalangwa and IGP Joseph Boinnet in Court wasn’t that flattering. Is is more an insult of natural intelligence. That is why isn’t worth noticing and showing to the world.

The Miguna scandal that is drawn out of proportion, is because of how its handled, what the state has done and how they acted upon it. Nothing has handled with care or after procedure. It has been less protocol and more ignorance is bliss. But the aftermath shows the indifference, that wolves are circling around the sheep. The eagles are flying over their prey, they are all waiting for the moment to strike. To hunt and to get their reward.

You can wonder what these gentlemen are out of this, what is stripes and their value for money. What did they get out of deporting Miguna for the second time? What was the purpose of the exercise, other than making Kenya looking foolish abroad? They certainly succeeded in doing that. Kudos, Matiang’i, Boinnet and Kihalangwa. You did it and deserves a token of success. Maybe a fake DVD will be sufficient?

The Courtship today was just a facade of forged play, it is an insult to the judiciary, who had dozens of Court Orders to bring him to Court and get justice for Miguna. But the state, these gentlemen deported him, they detained him on unknown location, they took him hostage and sent him on a plane. They have done that twice. They even made parts of JKIA M.I.A and that is special. Like Miguna was magician who could suddenly create all sorts of troubles with a passport, a phone and his hat.

With all finesse and attitude, the Kenyan Government needs to grow a pair, need to structure itself right and get a reality check. The balances and the ignorant state of affairs cannot continue. The contempt and the ignorance of the Courts, is the reason, that the Jubilee and their top-dogs are acting with impunity. They are not caring, but showing-up after the man is deported again. He is again a ghost in courts.

You can wonder if Miguna is the grandest thief, the biggest cartel boss of Kenya, even if he smuggled all sugar and drugs out of Somalia to run for governor of Nairobi last year. Because, surely there must be more valid reasons, more concerns and more underneath, if the three gentlemen would do this charade, unless they are three stooges of Kenyatta and Ruto. Who are playing forged games by Cambridge Analytica and trying to figure the pulse of Kenyans. To see if they care about a citizen losing citizenship and being deported. FYI: they do. They feel insulted and so should you.

This is not fun and games, this a sad reality. It should have been otherwise, but it isn’t. The State doesn’t give a damn, they are violently and aggressively taking their own. They are sending them away. Not giving in.

Miguna didn’t deserve this, neither did anyone else get the state sanctioned violence during the campaigns, the post-election from the police or the government. But they did, because they don’t really matter. Not like the President do, who has a motorcade passing Mombasa Road yesterday with 38 cars. Not all of Kenyans are that wealthy, they are kidnapped and lose their citizenship, because of your rule.

The world knows this now and your loyal minions are serving that will, taking away everything from the people who doesn’t matter to you. It is evident. Miguna is one of them, first of many, who knows who else will be kidnapped and taken away, lose their rights and lose their place in the Republic. Who knows?

Only Kenyatta and Ruto does, because they orders this mess. Peace.

KHRC: Press Statement on Miguna Case and Disregard for Judicial Authority (29.03.2018)

Opinion: Newly appointed Ambassador McCarter is not getting a easy-job in Kenya!

Shiish, after the last hustle with the deportation of Miguna Miguna and President Uhuru Kenyatta going on official duty abroad. While the state is showing indifference to the judiciary and the rule of law. That is the time, that the friend and beloved ambassador Robert Godec are leaving. He has worked closely and directly with the Jubilee Party, he has even been partisan during the elections of 2017. So, the aftermath and lack of trust to the Americans, are now there.

The new ambassador Kyle McCarter, former Illinois State Senator and now Ambassador in Nairobi. He will surely get into a job, that needs a lot of preparation and consideration. As the politics and interests of the Americans is on shady grown after the elections. Not like Godec left as a loved cousin of the Kenyans, his partisan affairs and legitimizing the affairs. Will be remembered as part of the squad called Envoy of Doom. More suicide squad, than friendly vigilantes.

While Godec thought he left the vacuum safe with the handshake between Kenyatta and Odinga, that they have made peace, but still Kenyatta is not showing any progress into the dialogue. Except for the public showdown of the sudden handshake and recognition of the paper. But, when seeing the treatment of Miguna, we now know it is meaningless peace of paper, because it doesn’t sanction any action. Miguna is now a victim of the elections and he has no rights in the eyes of the President. If he had, he would have entered Kenya during the last three days and wouldn’t have been deported.

This is the shady problems that McCarter has to deal with, this isn’t Zombie laws of Illinois or trying to get auto-industry back in shape in the state. This is dealing with bigger fish and volatile. The interesting thing is that the State Senator has been eyeing the post for months. He has wanted this one at least since October 2017. That meaning, he should have followed the politics and the troubles ahead. Not like Kenya is at a beautiful junction, even after the handshake. Since the opposition and ruling regime isn’t that friendly, neither the state respect of rule law.

In October 2017, McCarter said: “The folks in Washington are taking a look at this right now; I have expressed my interest in taking the job if its offered to me, and the background I have with the country of Kenya, and in business and in politics and in providing aid for children and orphans and widows, all qualifies me for the job,” McCarter said. “I would look forward to accepting it, but I have to wait for the process to work its way out. I don’t have any confirmation now.” (Joseph Bustos – ‘McCarter says he’s ‘all in’ to be ambassador to Kenya or seek another office’ 02.10.2017, Belleville News-Democrat).

You cannot expect that the Kenyans will miss Godec, except for the ones in the circles around Kenyatta. Since, he has acted in vain of democratic principals to secure a second term for Kenyatta. It has been vile and excessive attempts to undermine the opposition. That is what we can remember from Godec. He has talked institutions, but only when fitting Kenyatta, not respected it at other times. Now McCarter will step in.

I am not so giddy, because he will work under the same paradigm, a former politician who is a Trump supporter. We can wonder if he will do any good in Kenya. Good that he knows the country and has connections already. But Godec played the high cards and McCarter need to be careful. ‘

Mr. McCarter could a angel flying from the sky and promise all healing, but I don’t think that is the solution. That Kenyatta and Odinga need to figure things out, that Kenyatta has to act and show that he actually means it. That is if it is Godec or McCarter, they are just mere figureheads on the blackboard. They will not play that significant now.

ODM and Jubilee have to figure out how to make rule of law respected again. It has to start from the top, it has to start with the President and his deputy. Odinga has to be shown more than a security detail and foolery of public relations. That is all that has been given. If not Kenyatta has taken them for fools and tricked the whole thing. While the other NASA parties feels left behind in the handshake.

McCarter can make amends, but he has to act different than Godec. Godec has acted diminishing and also partisan in favors of Kenyatta. He didn’t give way for free and fair elections, when they did condemn the elections, it was too late and the results was already in print. McCarter has to show and prove. He is not just visiting a NGO school and a donor project, he will be living in it and trying to figure out the role of the US in Kenya.

I want to wish you good luck on your endeavors, newly appointed ambassador of Kenya Kyle McCarter, but don’t expect this to be a safari, eat some chapati and get pillau. This will be hardwork and its not like Godec is respected for what he did. So the American interference in the region, is not only seen as good, but demeaning. Time to pound on that for a moment. Peace.

Miguna Miguna deported for the second time within two months!

Again, in just as much of a hustle after 3 days of hectic madness, more court orders and more drama at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA). The sad story of Miguna Miguna continues. This happen as tonight, he was deported, sedated and put in a seat on the Emirates Flight EK722. He himself returned on the 26th March and was now put on another plane.

Last time he was deported on the 7th February 2018, days after the swearing-in of Raila Odinga at Uhuru Park on the 30th January 2018. The only one who really have been a direct victim of the political stance and his motivation in politics. Even Odinga has gotten away easy in this past, but Miguna continues to be harassed. The country of birth and the place where he was allowed to run as a governor candidate for the capital, Nairobi in 2017. Has now deported him twice in a year or correctly, twice in two months.

While he has been sealed off at JKIA, he has been manhandled and even been detained on the toilet. That is how the state has taken care of its citizen. While they have taken away his citizenship, they have taken away his passport and also ambushed his home in February. They at that time took him to undisclosed locations, while the state didn’t want to follow Court Orders. Just like it happen now, as the state re-instated Miguna and opened for him to re-enter Kenya. They still deported him again.

Earlier today, this is what Miguna was able to write on the toilet on JKIA: “As I write this note inside a tiny toilet at JKIA’s terminal 2, I have not eaten. I have not taken a shower. I have not been given access to my lawyers, family members and physicians. The Canadian High Commission sent a consular officer to see me this morning and to bring for me a telephone power bank and breakfast. She was denied clearance and told to return at 2:30pm, a time I was scheduled to be in court as Justice Odunga had directed. However, when the consular officer arrived at 2:30pm as directed, she was once again denied clearance and turned back. No reasons were given for the refusal to allow me consular access as stipulated under international law and conventions” (Dr. Miguna Miguna, 28.03.2018).

So the state has no intention of respecting the rights of one of their own. Miguna is a Kenyan Citizen, who has been banished from his birth country. This has happen as both lawyers, fellow politicians or anyone able to meet him while he was detained at the airport. The state sealed off the airport, like he was the biggest terror threat since Osama Bin Laden. That is how it seemed, while the police and soldiers also assaulted journalists and the media trying to cover the matter.

What is striking to me is that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) cleared the man for running for governor as late as after May 2017 and made him a candidate for people to vote for in the race. Therefore, they wouldn’t let a random street-cat from Juba run, there are certain demands and set of standards to let anyone run, even academic standards to follow. That is why, the whole revoking of citizenship is utter bullshit. Pardon my french, but it is.

It is not fun, it not is cool. That Moses Kuria are mocking the thing, but as Miguna is the victim now, who knows who is next. The Jubilee leadership is still not respecting the judiciary, the state is despotic and acting with impunity. That while Kenyatta is wearing military fatigue and proud-cock around new police officers. That is fitted as his own security personnel are kicking out an opposition political leader. Clearly, Kenyatta and Ruto doesn’t care. They are just eating of loans and thieving. Hoping no one will disturb their feast.

3 days of utter madness, three days of sorrow for the lack of respect of their own citizen. That is what has happen. The state has shown no respect to the rule of law, neither respect for the media and than they have again deported the man. Who just returned to his homeland.

This is disrespectful and also insulting to all intelligence. If Kenyatta and Ruto, think this is wise. The whole state of Kenya deserves to be mocked, condemned and also lose hope in their talks with NASA. Since it is not sincere. They are just shaking hands, but using force, and gently saying “fuck you”. When they can. Kenyatta are just taking action of aggression against Miguna.

This will be remembered. This will remembered, a real stain on Kenyatta presidency, since he cannot man-up and bring back his citizen, Miguna. Who had a National ID made by the Department of Immigration in 2012 and was running for governor in 2017, though kicked out now twice. That says it all about the state.

Kenyatta should show some sense, but he just has screwed-up worldview of Cambridge Analytica, so common sense cannot be there. Peace.
