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.

Kenya: National Coalition – Urgent Alert on Disappearance of Human Rights Defender Mildred Atty Owiso (29.05.2018)

DP Ruto: Your gig is up!

Deputy President William Ruto is one of a kind. The kind that uses fine words and speeches, the ones are defending values, but his actions differs from that. He has finessed the game, using his influence and his value in the system to gain monetary funds. This at a rampant speed, that the check-books cannot recover or even account for the funds. His play-by-play book is made for unaccounted funds and for forging results.

Therefore, a man who has earned a well-fortunate salary in his position, still his wealth over the years has risen astronomically. His houses, his business and his ownership is like a Jeff Bezos of Kenya. The DP has a village called home, own newspapers and whatnot, who knows he has gotten in his hands and pockets. It’s like a giant fountain of money that spiralling in his veins.

He is the guy that praises the rule of law, but orders to not respect the court orders. He is the sort of man who speaks of fighting corruption, but is corrupt as hell. He is the sort of man who speaks of accountability and transparency, while he himself accepts bribes, graft and unaccounted funds in boatloads. He is the man who speaks in twisted tongue, but expect people to speak honest to him.

DP Ruto, we know you now, we know what your up too. We have seen it for years. It isn’t cool anymore, we know that your in your place for one reason, not to serve Kenya, but serve yourself. You are in position to enrichen yourself and your family, not to be representative for Kenya. If it had been so, you wouldn’t be the famous hustler and the famous go-to-get wealthy politician vibe. Because that is true.

We know you own K24, The Star, Karen Homes, Osere flats in Rongai, Major Amaco Insurance, Oseng Properties Limited, Orterter Enterprises Limited, Weston Hotel, 680 Hotel and Uasin Gishu Residence. This you have gotten on your meagre salary. Billions upon billions in property and ownerships of companies, while earning only millions. You cannot make this up. You have also bought a copper and whatnots of cars within your time in office. Therefore, we know you speak, but do financial warfare.

So please, don’t speak ill of corruption, when you’re the benefactor and owner of it. It wouldn’t be like this if your salary and your benefits was sincere, if your role in government and wealth was real, as your eating like there is no tomorrow. Grabbing whatever possession there is and taking it. We see that, as step by step your grabbing ownership of vital plots, of vital news organizations and also producers, which will generate more income. But in the first place, you shouldn’t have the capacity or wealth to be able to get these. Your not earning enough to be here.

So the gig is up. We know you. You can speak those fine words. But we know the reality, the fantasy is all in your mind. We know that and you cannot say otherwise. We know you will, but it is valued as nothing. None. Okay?

Just stop, it is not funny. Peace.

Planned established Task-Force against Corruption: What about the EACC, DPP, IGP, DCI, Ombudsman and AG in Kenya, aren’t all of them enough?

ODM LEADER Odinga says a task force to end corruption will be established, and that claims he has been silent on recent scandals are untrue” (Nation Breaking News, 26.05.2018).

That Raila Odinga has today on the 26th May 2018 has said there is soon an established a new taskforce to combat corruption in Kenya. Well, I have my doubt about there mandate and their place in the hierarchy. That is the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) Chairman Eliud Wabukala, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Joseph Boinnet, Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) George Kinoti, Ombudsman and Auditor General (AG) Paul Kihara Kariuki,

That a proclaimed new task-force seems insane and outrages, like they are playing and toying around the subject. They already has the DPP, EACC, IGP, DCI, Ombudsman and the AG. All of these should have more than enough provisions and mandate to stop the grand corruption, the minor corruption and the petty theft from public institutions. However, seemingly all of these are just cashing in their checks and take the small fry. As the Jubilee Party and the government are to preoccupied with eating, to see that they are eating state services. This corruption is so grand and big, that the state services are failing because of it. While the state is adding more and more debt to cover the shortfall, which is created by the government itself and feeding itself.

All of these agencies, institutions and security organizations should have the ability to cover, find and build cases to get people detained and convicted for corrupt behavior. However, that is not in the interest of the party and the heads of the state. They cannot be taken and their elites, which is eating of the plate. Cannot be touched or be questioned for their mischief against the state. They are allowed to steal and take public funds for personal gain. That is the evident activity.

Therefore, with this in mind. It is foolish to add-on a Task-force in the midst of all these bodies. Where is the mandate, who is it running too and what sort of legal boundaries does it have? What is the provisions for its activity and jurisdiction? Will it answer to the AG, IGP, Ombudsman, DCI or the DPP for that matter? Or will it be a part of the EACC, which is such a soft gum-ball of a government institution.

That is why it is healthy to ask what will it do, that all of these others are not already involved in and who do they answer too? Are they blind muppets of the EACC or anyone of the other organizations? Since there are so many to be under and who just needs the provisions and the legal framework to allow the Task-Force to work under them. If not are it totally separate, will to actually investigate the lack of investigations inside the others as well?

I don’t have the answers, but I feel there should be enough legal investigatory bodies within the republic to get rid of corruption. If the will was there and if the will was really there, it should be enough. All of them should have the capacity, the ability and the legal standing to combat corruption. However, they are either gutted, silenced or not being used properly, because the elites, cartels and the ruling regime is stopping what they could expose. That is how it seemingly is and how it clearly is pushed.

That since they don’t have the ability to fight it within the bodies that are there, but it is really a sign of failure, when all of these are irrelevant and the government might start yet another one. What about the rest? Are they there for the pay-check and go home? Is that it?

That is how it seems. Peace.
