Opinion: Jubilee is ready to skin you now that the elections are over!

Let it be known that the State Coffers and the Government isn’t a well-oiled machine, the Kenyan government is taking up debt to cover old debt, which is all created by the current administration and the current President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto. Both of them have taken up expensive loans for both running the government, but also development projects. However, they have run their tab and is struggling.

They have subsidized lots of things people needs, they have paid providers and importers, they have made sure the costs of importing and producing has been lower. Especially in the months in advance of the Presidential Elections in 2017 and also a little after. However, they don’t need the votes and public goodwill anymore. Therefore, the subsidizes are now ceasing to exist.

The prices of gasoline and similar products are going up now in January. The prices of electricity has already been rising. The eminent rise of prices on UNGA is also coming. All of this is coming, as the subsidizes are ceased. The Jubilee Government cannot afford the billing and the tab, they have gained so much debt, that they cannot muster enough money to pay for this too.

Expect sugar and cooking oil to go up. If the airtime for the phone companies and the charges on M-Pesa would go up as well. All the Mobile Money and Airtime could also rise. The inflation and the current instability in the economy will hit all parts of the economy. The signs are there and the government need to tax and get more fresh funds. Easiest is to charge every single costumer and citizens through what they are already needing and spending on. That is all of this.

Make sure that the needed products, the food, the electricity and the gas cost more. So that the charcoal and other ways of heating will cost more. There will be more blackouts and less businesses can afford to hold the generators working.

Parents are also feeling growing school-fees combined with payment for uniforms and extra curricular activities. All of this is adding cost and making it harder for people to send their kids to school. This all combined means that there is a higher cost of living, while the salaries are not following. Meaning that the citizens are getting poorer, by just existing and breathing in the same space as the politicians.

That the Jubilee Alliance Party have tricked the public is clear, that they are trying to earn money on the public and find ways to fix their ill-gained debt spiral with added taxes and higher cost of living. The expenses of ordinary and needed products are rising. It is worrying, the signal of a falling economy and problematic investor space. Where cartels are controlling sugar, flour-milling and imports. Where the cronies and families of the political circle are owner and involved in key businesses.

We can wonder why it had to happen just small months after the elections and the swearing-in in November 2017. That Kenyatta and Ruto have planned this for a while. That is why the Forex Levy is now being changed and making things more costly. The UNGA and Sugar subsidy are also gone, as it was just a temporary relief. The gasoline and the electricity are controlled by the state and special levy, which is now taken away.

The ones paying this is the public, its the citizens and the politicians, the government know why it happens and let it happen. We can wonder, why they are accepting making life harder for their citizens. Peace.

American Company (Harris Media) peddling dangerous propaganda in the recent elections in Kenya!

Privacy International Reported through their investigations that a Texas based Harris Media LLC, who made web-pages the “The Real Raila” and “Uhuru for Us”, which both targeted not only the National Super Alliance Presidential Candidate Raila Odinga, but also addressed deep issues with tribal affairs. Which a foreign entity should use as a tactic or even think about using in a political atmosphere. Where there has been violence because of tribal tensions as late as 2008. Clearly, there we’re international companies involved the 2017 elections, not only Harris Media, but also Cambridge Analytica, who both worked for the Jubilee Party and for Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC). Therefore, all of the companies that has been hired in, has mostly worked to benefit the cause of the incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta and his party. The same did also OT Morpho, a french company delivering the KIEMS system to the IEBC.

So today revelation isn’t a new thing, but what is new is that they are directly using spiteful means to boost Kenyatta. This is devious and devilish to use the tactics that the pages of Harris Media did. Harris Media has represented Ted Cruz, Benjamin Nethanyahu and Rand Paul. They themselves call their methods: “We pride ourselves on creativity, innovation, and client service. We have a creative in-house team of graphic designers, web developers, and video editors. Our team has overseen multi-million dollar digital advertising budgets and will work with you to deliver the most targeted, innovative, and creative online strategy that fits with your goals. We believe every client deserves a unique digital strategy that is tailored with their specific needs in mind” (Harris Media, link: https://www.harrismediallc.com/our-work/).

Just to show what the Uhuru for Us is, let me take a few pieces:

On Facebook page 21st October it said this: “Kenya is a democratic nation where our citizens exercise their god given right to vote on who should lead our country. Raila Odinga is the greatest threat to our democracy!” (Uhuru for Us, 21.10.2017). On the 20th October 2017: “Exercise your right to vote and make your voices heard! They are trying to steal our democracy. They are even talking about splitting up Kenya and stealing our country. Ensure this doesn’t happen! Get all your friends fired up and ready to vote for Uhuru! He is the only leader who can keep Kenya growing, keep Kenya united, and keep Kenya peaceful!” (Uhuru for Us, 20.10.2017). On the 17th October 2017: “Do you believe in Uhuru’s peace as opposed to Raila’s violence? Do you believe in Uhuru’s progress as opposed to Raila’s backwardness? Do you believe in Uhuru’s unity as opposed to Raila’s divisiveness? If you are voting for peace, progress and unity with Uhuru pledge your vote today!” (Uhuru for Us, 17.10.2017).

This are some of what they did during the elections to sway people. Calling Raila evil and despicable things in favor of Kenyatta. The ironies into that is that Kenyatta has used the police and military, who actually killed numerous of people right before and during the campaigns. Even right before polls, there been big extra-judicial killings. Therefore, this campaigns are trying to target the opposition in a manner that they can question the ruling party.

That the Harris Media as a provider and a targeting campaigns are going this far in their propaganda shows the levels of little integrity. The American Media and Political Lobbying Firm are clearly using their methods to tarnish the opposition. They do it by all means and with no favors. There is no justification. Just spreading fear and more fear for the purpose of re-electing Kenyatta.

The elections this year has already been put in question and viably so. There is enough issues within the IEBC to start counting the doubts of a real counting of the votes on the 8th August and 26th October 2017. Harris Media and Cambridge Analytica worked really well to fix the message that Kenyatta wanted and to make Odinga look even worse.

Privacy International stated this about their work: “Three Harris Media staff, including Josh Canter, its vice president for content production, an account director, and a designer worked on The Real Raila site, authoring blog content, mostly republishing lightly-sourced characterisations of Odinga as a dangerous, racist xenophobe with promoting his tribe and family as his primary political aim. The Uhuru For Us Twitter account still appears linked to a Harris Media email address. Created in March 2017, its first follower was Kenyatta’s Digital Media Strategist” (Privacy International, 13.12.2017).

The American Business and Media Corporation was certainly peddling propaganda in favor of Kenyatta, that is shown just by one page on Facebook. Kenyatta paid these foreigners to serve his purpose, even if it created a more hostile environment. This also proves that American interests has been involved in keeping Kenyatta as a President. That is foreign interference from the United States in the Kenyan election. Certainly like they are looking into the involvement of Russians in their own, this would be the same sort of methods done in Kenya by them.

That Harris Media has been peddling this sort of content and put adverts in favor, that diminished the reputation of Odinga and his NASA. Shows that they we’re already invested in the Kenyan government and the current leadership, that is why they also got to hire certain companies to send their message. Kenyatta knew this all along, the same must been known by the American Ambassador Bob Godec. That has known about the communications done by Harris in favor of Kenyatta. Clearly, the Godec paradigm is to let Jubilee and Kenyatta continue to rule.

We can certainly question all of the American involvement as the Harris Media did their part in creating the separated nation as it was shown on the Jamhuri Day of 2017. This is as a results of the two previous presidential elections this year and non has ended well. The involvement of all of these companies should be litigated and be subpoenas to get intelligence on their direct involvement in the elections. Not that Kenyatta want to do that, because that weakens him even more. He is already fragile and not having the proper support anyway. He needed to cheat to win and that is proven. Peace.
