Kenya: DPP Noordin Haji press statement on role of financial institutions in NYS 2 scandal (07.02.2019)

NYS-Scandal 2.0: A showdown in Court, but with no flair!

Today, there is clear evidence that the DPP Noordin Haji doesn’t build up cases or even deliver probable cause against the ones that is charged. If the DPP and the State Prosecution had followed up the case, the National Youth Service Scandal 2.0. This is nothing new in Kenya, as the Government of Kenya (GoK) and the Jubilee Administration have several of questionable transactions and misuse of funds. That is clearly known by the people and also by the DPP.

DPP Haji, if he was really serious about the NYS Scandal 2.0, they wouldn’t have made a case, had the trial and awaited the verdict without proper cause. That sounds unserious on the matter at hand, that the DPP and State Prosecution don’t have collected the needed evidence of the dubious transactions to fictitious companies and tenders. If the DPP really wanted this to go anyway, the state and himself would have delivered the proof of it.

Take a look!

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has with withdrawn corruption charges against 11 suspects linked to the second National Youth Service (NYS) scandal for lack of evidence. Charges against former NYS Deputy Director General Sammy Michuki, Rodgers Nzioka, Simon Kanyi, Steven Riungu, Josephat Njoroge, Lucas Otieno, Timothy Kiplagat, Charles Makau, Jackson Matego Juma, Humphrey Odhiambo, Bernard Masika were withdrawn under Section 87 A of the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC); this, however, means that should the state get any evidence implicating them in the case then they will be brought back before the court for prosecution” (Citizen TV Kenya, 07.01.2019).

We can really see what happen today, that is showing how the lack of work and proof is clearing people. The DPP and State Prosecution is at fault, not the Courts who cleared this Public Officials and appointed ones who are supposed to serve the public. We are just seeing, the cause and the effect.

This is a deliberate act by the DPP and the state, as a way to stop more prosecution of them. As the state failed to deliver proof of mischief or criminal intent, of thieving the state of funds from the NYS. That is actions happens as they followed. They are thinking they are fooling people. That the DPP lost a case, but seemingly this is the elite of untouchables, which the DPP cannot play around with. As they are people who are trusted by the President and Deputy President. They are people who are in high regard. That is why the DPP couldn’t really win the case or prove the corrupt behaviour, which was alleged, but not enough apparently.

The ghosts wasn’t proven, the fake tenders wasn’t either, because the state cannot touch these ones. As the DPP knows and we knows too.

They can play fools with ghosts, but we will not follow it. Because we are smarter and thinking more straight than that. The DPP are following orders, the Courts are getting a weak case. So the pieces of the puzzle matches and the ones charges get off the hook. They got shooked, but not took. Feel me?

Peace.

Central Bank of Kenya: Investigations of Banks related to National Youth Service Transactions (12.09.2018)

Opinion: Is the White House for Sale?

This is a question that the Americans should ask themselves? Because, I am wondering as a foreigner, if my Kingdom doled some funds on Jared Kushner or on Ivanka Trump’s bank-accountants. Would  the Foreign policy will change because of that? That is a important paradigm shift from the Trump Administration.

Other, then being supportive of horrific migration policies towards immigrants and the ones who has liven there for generations, because it is only White America who deserves to live in the United States. The rest just living their and squatting there for time being. That is the memo the White House is sending out recently.

However, are the for rent signs on the lawn in front of the White House? Are there ads on Craigslist? Or is there unknown LLC that are in connection with the White House and delegates the newly operations from the Trump Organization abroad. As the Trump Organization and Kushner Companies continues to operate more abroad, getting loans from Qatar and Saudi Arabia. If not getting dozens upon dozens of Chinese Copyrights, while trying to build Hotels and Golf Courses all around the world.

Is this how the arrangements are done now? That you shake hands, trade-off deals with foreigners to companies in connected with the Trump Royal Family and then let-off the hook of the Nation in question. So if the need the US Army, the US Trade or lifting of sanctions, that will be softer after signing of deals with Ivanka or Jared. Because the Foreigners will deliver them a few silver coins, if their sanctions are lifted or trade of state companies get a better deal with the US; Because they gave some little money to the White House Royal Family.

The royal family, which is allowed to be revised over 40 times and as they didn’t follow procedure for their forms. Still to get security clearance and all the perks of the White House. This is happening as they are still enlarging their pockets and trading away their value at the Public Office. They are really playing high stakes with the Republic.

It is like they can buy and trade policies now, the foreign interference is evident and the change of narratives comes quickly, especially if the ones in this Trump Administration gets a pay-off. If there is need in a government agency, if the lobbyist or company needs changes of policies.

Remember pay someone off, especially pay off the Trump Family and relatives, then you get the princess and the whole kingdom. They are easily giving way, as long as the profits are returned and delivered to a random company of the Trump Organization. If it is money laundering or any other operation. As long as the Trump businesses get their cut, they don’t mind, that is what they do.

The White House is for sale, a giant haul sale and the evidence is in every story published, as the days go. I wonder how much does it cost to get them colluding with the Russians? Because surely that had a initial price. Surely, cost more than a box of crisps and a trademark in China. Peace.

The simple reason for the rising prices of UNGA!

If you wonder why suddenly the prices are running high for the UNGA again in Kenya. That is because the state has added taxes, they are trying to collect more money again. This is happening because its months since the elections and the subsidized UNGA is history. Therefore, expect rising prices, the maize and milk cartels want their profits. If they happen to in the pocket of the government at the same time. Is just convenient, even some of the companies earning on the sky-rocketing prices is the President himself and his own companies. I am sure the DP also owns connected businesses that could eat of the this plate too. While the ordinary and poor population will struggle to have ends meet as the government are taxing them even more.

Added Taxes:

Poor households would be more exposed in the amendments with sweeping implications on many sectors, as the State seeks to raise Sh1.75 trillion in the next financial year. Most basic commodities are not taxed to cushion the poor, but the changes that will be proposed in the national budget will end that. “We are looking at exemptions on several products that are widely consumed, but not on VAT such as milk, sugar, maize flour, wheat flour…,” said Benson Korongo, a commissioner of Kenya Revenue Authority” (Michira, 2018).

Prediction of the reaction to the taxes:

Milk and cream, not concentrated nor containing added sugar or other sweetening matter” (…) “Suppliers of the affected supplies will not be able to claim any input tax incurred in making of such supplies. This cost will be borne by the final consumers. Reverting to exemption of these basic commodities a year later after they had been zero-rated will lead to an increase in their prices rendering them less affordable to the ordinary Citizens” (…) “The supply of maize (corn) flour, ordinary bread and cassava flour, wheat or meslin flour and maize flour containing cassava flour by more than 10% in weight” (…) “Reverting to exemption of these basic commodities a year later after they had been zero-rated will lead to an increase in their prices rendering them less affordable to ordinary Citizens” (Ey Global Tax Alert Library, 2018)

It is special when Ernest & Young (EY) whose is known for their advice for potential investors and people who plans for invest in a republic. They have usual advice, which shows the potential and the grips of reality. Their analysis from April are now coming in effect in the end of May, as the local papers like Standard write about it now. But they say it might happen in July.

The state has favorably subsidized it and also imported on its own, that might happen again. But the added tax will hit the public. Make the staple food more expensive, because of added taxes. The shops, the importers, the distribution companies will not take the hit. The hit is always ending up at the consumer, the buyer and not the ones who produce, distribute and sells. That is known and the way we play. Seriously, when the state plans with these taxes to earn over a trillion shillings, nearly two, means they are anticipating selling enough of the needed goods and services connected with the new taxes to actually be sold.

So the prices on the staple is rising, because the Jubilee Government, the President and his party is doing it. This is their orders and their will, it is not the international market or a drought, it is initial planning and what the state does to get more revenue.

Jubilee whose are eating all of the state, needs more revenue to make another NYS Scandal, take more funds from the likes of NHIF and inappropriately use unaccounted funds in the various government bodies. Peace.

Central Bank of Kenya – Banking Circular No. 2 of 2018: Guidance Note on Conducting Money Laundering/Terrorism Financing Risk Assement (23.05.2018)

NYS Scandal 2.0: The Jubilee government never fails!

Today’s news that the National Youth Service (NYS) is hit with another wastage and corruption scandal is like having the issues of 2015/2016, all over again. The Jubilee Government shows they are all talk about corruption, but their institutions and government are not doing anything about it. Seemingly, similar fashion of siphoning funds continues. That is why now two years after the previous scandal in the same government organization, the same sort of affair is exposed.

The new one is with a new Cabinet Secretary Margaret Kobia and a new NYS Director Richard Ndubai, they are both doing the same biding as the ones in the past. The same sort of tricks and issues, that are really just showing the indifference in eating the public’s money. This while doing favors and dropping funds on ghosts and cronies. Who knows where the monies has ended, but it has not done what it was supposed to do. Therefore, the new brigade of leaders, are doing exactly the same as the ones in the first term of Jubilee. This is carrying on tradition!

It is a tradition to finds methods of thieving public funds, as the lack of oversight and governance is built in within the system. You have agencies and legal organizations whose supposed to look into this, but they are not really interested into investigating their own. Unless, they are slapping a minor fine on people who has stolen billions. They are thieving billions, while paying a minor fine of a one million or two. Therefore, the crime is paying-off the elites, they don’t have to mind, because they won’t suffer anyway. They get away with it and smiles to the bank.

That is why the Jubilee are in the midst of another NYS Scandal, this time 2.0. They are on another level, this time with tenders, which was served with ghosts. In the last go around it was fictitious companies and projects connected to the Director who got cash. Who wonders who earned on the fake tenders this time. Someone had to earn fortunes for doing nothing, while the state piled monies into their accounts. It most have been great days to sell nothing and getting millions into the accounts.

NYS Scandal 2.0. was anticipated, the grand corruption are following Kenyatta and his government. That is maybe why he asked people to donate to Red Cross recently, because he knew giving money to his government, someone he knows will eat it. It will not help the public. It will only help the elite and the ones in close connection to the any given ministry.

There isn’t anything positive to take from this, but just proving the impunity of the state. When they can just ditch all guidelines and steal directly from state organization. They do it without any scruples and thinking, no one will mind, no one will say anything and they know it will cost very little. The price to pay for doing it is minimal and nearly none. When you take billions, you pay a meager million. That is profitable. To say otherwise is naive. To be blind to the fact, that being corrupt is grand business, it is enriching and who cares of the consequences.

Because you get rich doing practically nothing, you can sit in the shade of the sun, build mansions, own SUVs and go to expensive shopping-malls, while the rest is slumming. Since you are eating and can enjoy the spoils of the state, as you are feeding ghosts and non-existing ideas. That is fating your pockets. That is why you don’t have to care and worry, you will get paid anyway, while the supposed activity is never happening. Peace.

Cambridge Analytica Scandal: Jon Snow letter to Mark Zuckerberg (22.03.2018)

Kenya: Journalists for Justice – “Lies, confusion and psychological warfare are Cambridge Analytica’s tools of trade” (21.03.2018)

Opinion: There is a need for a investigation in the acts of Cambridge Analytica in Kenya!

It is weird, it is strange, but also very clear why President Uhuru Kenyatta, why Deputy President William Ruto and all of the political elite, and the Jubilee Party don’t want to touch the affiliate Cambridge Analytica. As the world is grasping with the toils and the states are asking for subpoena information and oral evidence from Cambridge Analytica and Facebook. The Kenyan Government are walking around like nothing happen. Not like the lightning stroke down in 2013 and 2017, but just letting it go like spilled milk.

While other governments are looking into the madness, into the big-date breaches, where the Cambridge Analytica used their manpower and expertise to take private information from users of Facebook. Use that to target and make messages fitting the campaigns that hired them. This they did in Kenya, we got no idea to what extent, but clearly they have done their thing. Even the CEO has been proud about their activity. As the Kenyan government has hired the company and used their services.

There has been known that the company had connection with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), even as far the Commission own server was directly tapped by the government. While the Jubilee Party also used the affiliate Harris Media also to spread the messages and campaign agenda made by the Company, everything was elaborate and made to make sure the President got his way in the media. Even media companies was paid to make ready-made, microwaved articles to serve the public. Like dishes fitting the paradigm of the state. This isn’t just hearsay, it was the real deal. The Githeri Media was boosted and paid through the ranks of the Company. Cambridge was involved in everything, even wrote the speeches and notes that Kenyatta brought to the public. Clearly, the President Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU) was working directly with the Company making sure their stories was set straight.

This was done with precision and with full fury, they did it knowingly and misused their trust. This wasn’t just campaigning, but rigging with the mercy of American Company registered in the United Kingdom. With ICT Managers and hackers who took information and boosted the ruling regime. If this isn’t a massive theft, than nothing is. That the Cambridge Analytica would make sure and facilitate it this way. Shows how the company and their string-men are working to get their client fixed in position. That is maybe why US Ambassador Bob Godec has been such a loyal man to Kenyatta. Where he has worked for the benefit of the President and not for democratic values. They are not needed, when the President are spending on American Companies and using their products to extend his agenda. Even if that meaning rigging and a hostile takeover of the state.

If this isn’t investigated, if the ones behind the theft, the ones who has stolen a republic. The ones who has used manipulation, rigging and propaganda to benefit one man and his cronies. If that isn’t sorted out, the reality of it all will never matter. That Kenyatta got everything served, paid the Westerners a fortune and secured his victory, it was already Pyrrhic on 26th October 2017, but now it is a blatant lie. Manufactured election with a tin-soldier running the show.

This isn’t fun and games, this is a killing, a kill of democracy and a kill of institution and a death-stroke to believe how the citizens been used to targets themselves in a ploy to reinstate their client. It is without mercy, without justice and without consent. It is just mere facade and forgery. Nothing else, its the worst sort of realization.

It deserves to investigated, by Scotland Yard, by someone from the outside to do it properly, a foreign investigation unit, who works independently and can take all evidence and affidavits. To unleash the truth, reveal the madness and not only the open air implications that are there. Put it in system, collect more than the leaks, but actually get the whole truth and than indict the ones culprits behind it all. Peace.
