Kenya: Aden Duale MP – Request for Statement Pursuant to Standing Order No. 44(2)(C)Registration of Persons in Garissa and Wajir County (14.07.2020)

Opinion: The Wise-Guy Babu Owino better chill

Now that the Member of Parliament for Embakasi, Paul Ongili aka Babu Owino has sent a letter through his lawyer to the Nation Media Group after they posted an article on him and DJ Evolve aka Felix Orinda. The MP and his team is sour about the article, but there is justification for it. 

The MP and his team needs to chill, they need to take a brew and stop. What happen was is already online, the receipts and the clips of what he did. That the authorities haven’t acted upon it, says more about the rule of law in the Republic. Than about justice for DJ Evolve.

The clip of what happened that night in the club when Babu Owino shot the DJ is as clear as day. The way he handled the gun and the way he aimed at the DJ. It was all deliberate. It doesn’t matter if the DJ talked smack or anything. The intent and gun-shot was straight up trying to murder the man.

The MP asking for the Nation Media Group to apologize or get sued is foolish. The video and the clip of his gangsterism is already there. The wise-guy and MP better use the same wit as he does with as he does with trying to vindicated for the shooting of the DJ.

The MP should get this through the Courts. Get his lawyers on speed-dial and get it squashed in the Courts. That is paying damage and pleading guilty, because the video-clip is already there. The man did it and the video showed it. It isn’t hearsay and just some random legend of what happened in the Club in January 2020.

The MP can act a fool, his can be a tool and he should be schooled for this. DJ Evolve deserves justice, as the act of Babu Owino was injustice. If he wasn’t an MP and was anointed by the cartels and the State House. He wouldn’t walk around like his Al Capone and be greatest gangster since Bumpy Johnson.

Babu Owino MP should praise the Gods, he should be on his knees and worship the Lord. Why? Because, he has had no punishment or no sanction on him after the attempted murder of DJ Evolve.

Nevertheless, him and his team is acting vicious. They are acting entitled, when in reality his lucky he isn’t a jailbird. That Babu Owino isn’t wearing bracelets and serving time. He should pray and be merciful to everyone around him. Since people have seen the tape, people have discussed the tape and the vicious attempt he did. Which he haven’t paid for or had any consequences of.

His off the hook for now. That’s why he should fold his hands and pray. If that isn’t his thing. Maybe some more shisha and beers in silence. Peace.

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

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.

Wetangula: A man without a home

Moses Wetangula, the tenure of Party Leader in the Forum for Restoration of Democracy – Kenya (FORD-Kenya) is now over. After ten years in-charge, the gazette today is now making it official. Even after the outcry and battle cry for his restoration of the role in the end of May 2020. It has been to no avail and its now official.

Wetangula, the former NASA Co-Principal and the former Minority Leader in the Senate is a man without a home. His a backbencher in some ways. A lost soul trying to find his way. Moses got support of Musalia Mudavadi, but that doesn’t help him. It seems that he got no helping hands or general control to assess the situation itself.

His fall started on the dethroning in October 2018, as his lost the title and leader role in the Senate. That was the first proof that he wasn’t untouchable and had enough friends. This was given to James Orengo, as he represented the biggest opposition party.

Since, then its been the gold scandal and shown that Wetangula haven’t had friends as he couldn’t find a way or relevance. As he wasn’t loyal to the National Super Alliance, neither to the Presidential Handshake. Therefore, neither Jubilee nor ODM needed him.

Wetangula can try to join Amani National Congress. That might boost the ANC a little bit, but not by much. Not like Moses will lead them across to Canaan. He could never do that alone before and that will not change now. Mudavadi needs friends too. That’s why this will be his new home. Unless, Ruto finds some shelter for him.

Moses made this road himself. He went out with full bravado and showed that he had no support. Neither in his own camp or on the outside. He has Mudavadi, but he could only come with with a hardcore statement. Musalia couldn’t change the results nor the outcome. That was sealed. It just took a few days and now its done.

Wetangula is homeless in a way. He is a senator, but not a big-man. It seems like he doesn’t have the needed connections nor political savvy to figure things out. That’s why this fall so brutal. He talked of foot-soldiers, but they didn’t show up for either. That why this so hopeless.

If we can learn anything from this. Never ever take things for granted, your position, your titles and your comrades. Always work and find your ways. Since, if you don’t, you can end up like Wetangula and be without a home.

I wonder, who will let him in and give him space.

Wetangula needs it …

We just have to wonder what’s next up for him. Clearly he needs a message, a vision and a long-con. Because, all his short-cons since the 2017 elections has failed him. Peace.

Opinion: Mudavadi and Wetangula better find some shade

Today, there are reports of ouster of Moses Wetangula as the leader of Forum for Restoration of Democracy – Kenya (FORD-Kenya). There even talks of splits of various factions within the party. That its going into pieces. This after a press conference, where Wafula Wamunyinyi MP took over command after a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the party. That was happening with involvement of COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli.

However, today the leader of Amani National Congress Musalia Mudavadi has backed the man under fire. The man whose having internal conflict within his ranks and his party. ANC is backing Wetangula and FORD-K. In a manner no one expected too. Just like people are pinning Atwoli’s involvement, it is peculiar that Mudavadi adds pressure within the FORD-K.

Mudavadi and Wetangula is known partners, while both has been in the shadow realm after the Presidential Handshake. These two has been clipped off their wings, Senator Wetangula has lost his high ranking office of Senate Minority Leader to James Orengo. Therefore, his platitude and relevance has already been significantly dropped.

Today, was yet another shot, as Wamunyinyi practically kicked Wetangula out. Mudavadi wrote this about the matter:

In this, they are aided by the Secretary General of the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU). This ugly ploy reminds us of the WATERGATE SCANDAL of JUNE 1972, when the leader of a political party in the United States invaded another party in the manner that we are now witnessing in Kenya” (…) “On my own behalf and on behalf of the entire fraternity of AMANI NATIONAL CONGRESS, I wish to assure Senator Wetang’ula that we solidly stand with him. We note with satisfaction that the LEGITIMATE ORGANS OF FORD KENYA have moved swiftly to diffuse the confusion generated by the EXTERNALLY SPONSORED MISCHIEF and to restore ORDER in the party. We urge Ford Kenya to BE FIRM AGAINST QUISLINGS and in its resolve to STAND WITH THE PEOPLE of Kenya” (ANC, 31.05.2020).

We see the language and everything. It is really sparking flames in the eyes of Mudavadi, like it his mind and his soul. It was daggers towards his back and his chest. He was seeing Brutus appearing from behind like he was the Luhya Caesar. Well, that is maybe for another day.

However, while writing, the ODM Secretary Edwin Sifuna wrote this about it:

We therefore wish to remind him that among the people he has derisively referred to as “quislings” include political achievers of the mould of Governor Wangamati, Hon Wamunyinyi and Hon Simiyu Eseli, who, having been Ford Kenya Secretary General for such a long time, must have had a prime ring-side seat to watch the failure and utter ineptitude he has accused his former Party Leader, Senator Moses Wetangula of” (…) “Mudavadi in 2002 chose Kanu over NARC and UDF over ODM in 2013, with disastrous results, but still within his rights. He has no right to lecture anyone on political choices, given the catalogue of failures from his own choices since 2002, and from which he has been politically saved countless times by the “leader of a NASA party”” (…) “In conclusion, Mr Mudavadi should desist from seeing the ghost of ODM everywhere. It is ODMs stated policy not to interfere in the internal workings of other political parties. We do not pretend to know the issues within Ford Kenya that have occasioned the changes, but unlike Mudavadi, we will let Ford Kenya members exercise their right to choose their leadership, without us pretending to know why they did it and what informed these specific changes. This is the basis of democracy, which may be alien in ANC” (ODM, 31.05.2020).

And with that shot from the ODM. You can see that Mudavadi and Wetangula needs to find some shade from the sun. Even more powerful than Rihanna’s umbrella. Since, this is going to get harder. It going to be more friction and turmoil before this is over. They have both been looking like two outcast political relics with no permanent home. Even if they are leading two briefcase parties in a sense.

That Atwoli are interfering isn’t new. COTU and other agents has always pushed their agenda and for their loyal men to the forefront. That isn’t new either, that is the job of the Union to get positive leadership and leaders who wants to serve the interests of the Union. Therefore, the attacks of Mudavadi is foolish at best. Also very reckless and the tone is coming as an outcry. Like the final battle-cry, as he fears his next-up.

Mudavadi and Wetangula needs help. They both do. Since, the handshake, the BBI and the whole dismantling of both CORD and NASA. These two has struggled for relevance. Their powers and seats has been limited. Not, like they have pushed for any policy or any sense of position papers in the National Assembly either. They could have tried, but they are in it too eat. These two are the ones who bask in glory, but doesn’t put the work in. Peace.

Opinion: The Tanga Tanga is losing influence – One-By-One

If Deputy President William Ruto think he sways influence or has any initial power. He should look over his shoulder. As one-by-one his allies are losing their titles and their roles to play in the National Assembly. Today was the third major role in the National Assembly plus the nominated Members of Parliament who was suspended recently.

That Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and Senator Susan Kihika lost their titles in the Senate earlier in this month. Today, the Deputy Speaker of the Senate Kindiki Kithure was impeached. Meaning all the allies of Ruto has been clipped and taken out in the Senate. This is a sign of loss of importance and in the shadow.

It is easy to see why this is happening, as the dynasties are working together. Odinga is getting yet another honorary role in a Economic Recovery Council coinciding with the Building Bridges Initiative. So, Kenyatta is securing all angles and showing his commitment to his cause. Regaining control, but without the Hustler Nation or the Tanga Tanga.

This is just very weird that KANU is revived. Talks of getting Isaac Rutto and his CCM into the coalition, also the talks of unification with Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka and his WDM. All of them just coming together and securing their futures. The only one, which is official is the KANU-Jubilee.

The deal and agreement that is pushing away Ruto and his men. The men who swore loyalty to him is suddenly vanishing. Just like the takeover of opposition from the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) and Raila Odinga when he did the Handshake. Suddenly, Sen. Moses Wetangula was kicked out and Sen. James Orengo took his place.

What is just striking is the new tandem of Kenyatta, Moi and Odinga. All of them playing their parts, shading across the chambers and cleaning the slate. The reality is that this is all knives out and taking out the ones whose undeserving their place. Impeaching and making heads-roll. The limelight and the spotlight is now on the ones whose in favour of the DP. They are falling like flies.

This is all just a house of cards. Piece by piece. All things are falling apart. What’s ironic is that this are the supposed friends and allies of the President. These are the supposed mates in the party and the ones his serving together. However, his taking them apart and making them to silent backbenchers. While the supposed opposition are voting in favour of the government. That’s shows how messed up this is and what games that are played.

Because, here is a wing of the government in turn becoming opposition without any inauguration or party. They are in-government, but really out of government. They are becoming pseudo-government like Odinga. Raila picked that place in the mix, but not officially. While Ruto’s men are kicking and screaming out of the offices. When they were supposed to be the Presidents Men. Which they are apparently not.

That’s why yet another one lost his place. No matter what character he has or what education he has. He was on the wrong and shown loyalty to the wrong man. This minute and this point of time, he was a part of the Tanga Tanga. A piece which is toxic and which isn’t as powerful as the DP says. His losing it. Seat after Seat, title after title. The tables are turning, the dwindling power is evident.

The losses are piling up. Ruto needs to find a solution and quickly. Before, the dynasties combined with the ODM has swallowed the whole thing. They are just shuffling him away like old snow. Peace.
