If you we’re thinking the levels of rigging was bad last year. Your was wrong, the whole operations was a fraud. Not only did they rig the numbers and the ballots, they rigged the business deals in their favor. Meaning that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) wasn’t only set up to secure the Jubilee administration and the President. It was also made to enrich the IEBC Secretariat.
This being Wafula Chebukati and Ezra Chiloba, who was using the rigging machine as a gravy-train. They tenderized and sensitized the deals, in a sway-way of gaining funds in their pockets. As they overpaid for the services rendered for the elections in 2017. This is not the only thing and the public knows this, as the boycott proved it was ghosts electing the President and Deputy. Since, the IEBC was a tool to get the President re-elected, not to be a proper independent organization, which was there to serve the public. No matter who the public wanted to get elected.
Therefore, IEBC Misused tenders:
“IEBC acquired Sh127.6 million worth of data bundles (149,640GB or 149TB) from Safaricom, Telkom and Airtel. Yet when the Auditor General analysed Internet use on the SIM cards, only 605.3GB of bundles worth Sh515,269 had been used — a mere 0.4 per cent of the acquisition” (…) “Consequently, Sh127.08 million went to waste or was misappropriated” (…) “The IBM infrastructure contract awarded on July 17, 2017 and scheduled to run through to June 2018, was given out for Sh425 million yet the evaluation committee had recommended that it be procured at Sh75 million” (…) “Fourth, the Commission’s ICT department had requisitioned purchase of Oracle database solutions and licences at Sh80 million but it was awarded for Sh273 million” (…) “IEBC contracted Africa Neurotech Systems Ltd to supply, install, implement, and commission and support its primary and secondary data centre equipment. It was paid Sh249.3 million against contract budget of Sh130 million.” (Ken Opala – ‘Impunity reigned at IEBC in tenders scam whose ‘theft was beyond the imaginable’ 17.12.2018, link: https://www.nation.co.ke/news/IEBC-in-tenders-scam-whose—theft-was-beyond-the-imaginable-/1056-4898274-grmjsq/index.html).
We are here seeing at what extent the IEBC Secretariat was misusing the funds, it was their time to eat on the public dime. The IEBC Secretariat was ready to use their tenders and their contracts to fix the budgets to secure themselves.
If it was ordering and overspending of funds concerning the Mobile Data. Which seems like rouse, as I can remember several of polling stations was not connected, but still the IEBC paid for it. They also did similar to the IBM and Africa Neurotech Systems Limited. Therefore, it is several tenders and companies, that was used by the IEBC, but not properly used and overpaid for. That is a sign of fraud and graft done directly by the IEBC Secretariat.
Chebukati and Chiloba must have worked close on this, knowing the finer details and agreeing on the use of funds, as well as the lack of transparency on it. The IEBC Secretariat planned this and misused it for a purpose. Who knows where their went, but most likely went into their pockets. As they could trick the public and also able to spend the extra funds on themselves. Like all gentlemen of the government, who has the ability to steal and think no one will ever notice.
The IEBC had enough lies and deceptions, there are already known, but that they we’re looting the state reserves in their favors wasn’t known. But that they rigged the elections in 2017. That we all know, but stopped talking about. Because we are all building bridges and not solving old problems. Peace.
President Paul Kagame is a rare breed. He is beloved in the West for some strange reasons, while in his own Republic. All opposition are living in fear, all opposition are under fire and in trouble. Therefore, if your real opposition of Kagame, than you end up detained, killed or in exile.
This isn’t that story, but feeding you some minor context into last move of the regime of Kagame. This isn’t any of his activity in the African Union, but back-home in Kigali. He is always wanting control and rule, be the giant overlord. Be the beloved character, the TED Talk sort of finessing dictator with fancy glasses and imported suits.
He wants to take it another step, as the President see how the popular President and beloved Stars followed on Twitter and Retweeting their tweets. He wants to be like Zari and Diamond Platinumz. Mr. Paul wants to be certified with millions of followers and have the loyal brigade from Rwanda.
President Kagame are so hungry for popularity, that he has to ordered the Civil Servants to FOLLOW him on TWITTER and they have to coordinate the movement of other Rwandans on Twitter. Where they are report on their subordinate use of personal Twitter’s Account.
That is how little Kagame is really is, as he has to order to get followers. He has to tell his people to follow him. He has so little care for him, that he has to tell the Civil Servants to automatically follow him on Social Media.
This is the supposed Chairman of the African Union and the President of Rwanda, have to order his Civil Servants to FOLLOW him on TWITTER. Because he cannot get some real support or admiration from his own.
Kagame isn’t as big of a man as it seems. Mr. Paul is Skinny Black and not the real Ludacris. Paul Kagame might be a giant evil crook, but he needs to boast his self-esteem with people who are ordered to follow him ONLINE. Peace.
