Kenya's 'First Half Cabinet' Named

As predicted by Kumekucha a few days ago, Kibaki's part cabinet is named and our predictions are spot on.

This afternoon 'President' Mwai Kibaki made a live broadcast address to the nation:

" I am pleased to announce part of my Cabinet. In forming the Cabinet, I have considered the importance of keeping the country united, peaceful and prosperous under a strong, broad-based leadership. I am accordingly, naming the first half of my Cabinet as follows:"

(1) Vice President and Minister for Home Affairs - Hon. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka,
(2) Minister of State for Provincial Administration and Internal Security, Office of the President- Hon. Professor George Saitoti
(3) Minister of State for Defence, Office of the President - Hon. Yussuf Mohamed Haji
(4) Minister of State for Special Programmes, Office of the President - Hon. Dr. Naomi Namsi Shaban,
5) Minister for Public Service, Office of the President -Hon. Asman Abongotum Kamama,
6) Minister for Finance - Hon. Amos Muhinga Kimunya
(7) Minister for Education - Hon. Professor Sam Ongeri
(8)Minister for Foreign Affairs - Hon. Moses Wetangula
9) Minister for Local Government - Hon. Uhuru Kenyatta
(10) Minister for Information and Communications - Hon. Samuel Lesuron Poghisio
(11) Minister for Water and Irrigation - Hon. John Munyes
(12) Minister for Energy - Hon. Kiraitu Murungi
(13) Minister for Roads and Public Works - Hon. John Njoroge Michuki, MP
(14) Minister for Science and Technology - Hon. Noah M. Wekesa
(15) Minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs - Hon. Martha Karua
(16) Minister for East African Community - Hon. Dr. Wilfred Machage
(17) Minister for Transport - Hon. Chirau Ali Mwakwere

In brief, the president is telling ODM, President Kuffour, Gordon Brown, Desmond Tutu and Madam Fraser and all 4.5 million Kenyans who voted against him - YOU CAN GO TO HELL, I AM PRESIDENT.

Even as ODM shows goodwill by suspending protest rallies, the president is throwing mud at them by recalling parliament and naming his cabinet. The questions is: Is there need to continue negotiating with an individual who has shown over the last five years that he cannot honour agreement??

Analysis and comments to follow.

Kibaki and the people around him are truly out of touch with reality. It will be instructive to see how Musyoka has any morals or backbone or not- will he accept his nomination or refuse it?

Kibaki is asking Kenyans to sit in silence as he acts as dictator...wait for the country to erupt in the near future.

Your class, your caste, your country, sect, your name or your tribe
There's people always dying trying to keep them alive
There's bodies decomposing in containers tonight
In an abandoned building where
The squatters made a mural of a Maasai girl
With fifteen cans of spray paint and a chemical swirl
She's standing in the ashes at the end of the world
Four winds blowing through her hair
But when great Satan's gone, the whore of State House
She just can't sustain the pressure where it's placed
She caves
The Bible's blind, the Torah's deaf, the Koran's mute
If you burn them all together you get close to the truth still
They are pouring over Sanskrit on the ivy league moons
While shadows lengthen in the sun
Cast all the school and meditation built to soften the times
And hold us at the center while the spiral unwinds
It's knocking over fences, crossing

Four winds, cry until it comes
And it's the sum of man
Slouching towards Nairobi
A heart just can't contain all of that empty space
It breaks, it breaks, it breaks
Well, I went back by rented Cadillac and company jet
Like a newly orphaned refugee, retracing my steps
All the way to Kisumu to commune with the dead
They said, "You'd better look alive"
And I was off to old Eldy where a genocide sleeps
In the black hills, the bad lands, the calloused west
I buried my ballast, I made my peace
With four winds, levelling the escarpments of the great valley

But when great Satan's gone, the whore of State house,
She just can't remain with all that outer space
She breaks, she breaks, she caves, she caves.

What sort of evil advisors does Kibaki have? This is no the time to jump the gun. All this gamesmanship can only exacerbate things. NOT NOW! PLEASE!!

My fellow Kenyans: Kibaki has just named the M.P.s who will not survive the next election.

That cabinet list is a political death wish; Kikuyu or non-Kikuyu.

Joe said...

Phil,

Now you understand my frustration. That is why i am skeptical - the Cellar groups advice will come to naught.

Now, tell me. What next? Lets just go ahead with the mass action. We need a strategy for breaking the will of the GSU. Any suggestions?

So no Luos in the cabinet?? I think cessation.

Anyway, let us see if the most religious and honest democratic fighter of the poor with extreme auspicious scouting abilities, i.e. Kalonzo Musyoka, will accept to serve in a government of thieves.

What remains now is the jostling of the remaining cabinet positions, an event orchestrated to bring out the greed in ODM. In my estimation, Raila's fist error was dropping the demand that Kibaki must resign prior to negotiations. It may not be very clear now, but such a blunder pretty much legitimizes Kibaki.

Mass action is the only solution. It's either mass action or lets burry the dream of change and concede to the powers that be.

Kenyans of all goodwill have been signing.

I am not sure if Kibaki is interested in Kenya and I am wondering why he should behave like this.

This guy needs some "Adjustment" and political pressure.

KAH said...

Kalonzo must have been consulted before the appointment. Now who is opportunistic? In a weird (wicked?) way, this is good - as 8:03 has observed - Kibaki has shown his true colours and his lack of regard for the greater good.

Vikii said...

Kalonzo Musyoka, his supporters and those others named in the cabinet do not have any dispute with the president. They are qualified, very qualified for the jobs offered to them. They do not need any instructions from ODM members (who feel Kenya revolves around them) to join or not to join the government. Phil says some 4.5 million voted for Raila Odinga. Well, the truth of the matter is that the 4.5 million you are talking about actually voted for Kibaki. As you rightly say, there is no point of negotiations about the elections or composition of the government. We have wasted a lot of time discussing non-issues. Let's move forward. Like I said, anybody not happy with what is happening has the right to proceed either to court or to hell.

This selfish idiot will burn this country to the ground, watch what happens? Whay we have witnessed so far in terms of violence is nothing compared to what is coming. He should have never done this before mediation. NO, everyone knows what are hsi real intentions, this madness must stop. Kenyans must come together to cripple his government completely. International countries must denounce this government and put on the record they do not recognise it as "legitimate"..

This is blatantly telling Kenyans go and do what you want, we will kill, maim and enrich ourselves when we want and how we want!

We need mass protests all over the country and continuously cripple every avenue of this government able to function!

My bet is the hyena "Kalonzo" will take this post, he has never once said that this government is "illegimate", this is exactly what he was talking about when he said "miracles" will happen!

This man is crazy!! Something is seriously wrong in his head. Why should we let these senile old men who have less than 5 years to live ruin our lives? There time is over, why are they so bent on destroying our futures? Will they take power and riches to their graves?

By naming this cabinet Kibaki, Lucy and Michuki have shown that they carry no love for their fellow kikuyus who are being slaughtered. This should be a lesson to kenyans, we should stop voting for tribes but look at the individual. You voted en masse for a man who couldnt care less if you are killed and your property destroyed as long as he achieves his selfish and macabre goals. Kenyans of all tribes should unite to kick out these dinosaurs and stop fighting each other. They dont care about us! By naming this cabinet this man has shown that he is against peace and reconciliation.

Kalonzo will be putting his last nail on his political coffin by accepting that post, and all the others too, they can kiss politics goodbye in 2012 if they accept the posts.

Chirau Ali Mwakwere, the whoring old pervert caught on camera on k/street. This man presided over the disintergration of all courtesy and etiquette on our roads. He is back!!

MICHUKI, oh my God, I feel like vomiting.

Can anybody now come out and say with a serious face that he or she supports kibaki?

Tis a pity the likes of Vikii surround our senile president.

atherere said...

Michuki moved to avoid claims of genocide. Saitoti was rigged so it will be easy to manipulate to kill since they helped him rig elections, this shows their is still a major protest in the way and they are getting well prepared for it. Since they messed well in rigging, they dont want to leave any Kenya for anybody to lead and its quite clear now. This is the time, but I worry, the situation wont be good at all. When soberness returns, nomatter how many years it will take, somebody will come out and confess for miss-advicing the president. THIS IS FUEL ADDED TO THE BURNING FIRE.

When exactly is Saitoti going to retire? I remember him from my 8-4-4 days.

Vikii said...

Andy Capp (Kalamari?), I have not said for once that I am happy with the situation in Kenya. But listen to Raila Odinga, who is leading the gang called ODM and tell me if he is genuinely interested in dialogue. He was invited to state house on Thursday and he said he is not going unless told to do so by John Kuffour (A guest of the state).

while till on this, what does the forming of the govt by Kibaki have to do with any mediation with ODM? They have said they are not willing to join Kibaki's govt. So their talks can only be aimed at withdrawing hooligans from the streets and nothing else.

The Rendezvous said...

I am still WONDERING how Kibaki could have secured presidency in 2002 had it not been for RAILA and Rainbow dream.

Again, does Kibaki have KENYA in his heart.When everything is getting back to Normal, international mediation is on course, Why does he assault the minds of Others.

On top of that, why were there no problems when Kibaki was elected in 2002 and there is a problem when RAILA is elected in 2007?

Keep Wondering with me at my Blog.

To hell with Gefaki Man. I may as well suggest to the Luos, Luyhas, Kales, Mijikenda, Somalis and all those in Mombasa to seal the borders. None of these sickheads ministers should come around your provinces. Even Gefaki himself should fuckin stay in Nairobi and Central for good. We don’t want him and his dictatorship in our land.

Yes I’m saying this from my heart. If he is showing us this disrespect, then why don’t we disrespect him fully? Lucy, you last came to the western part of Kenya in December; make that the last one.

Vikii said...

Mwai Kibaki and those ministers (Some of whom may turn down the appointments) are Kenyans. They have a right to not only go to those areas you have named but to also own property there. They need nobody's permission to do that unless they are going to their HOMES.

KAH said...

"This is a country that is extremely polarised and there are some people who are extremely dejected by the performance of the Kenyan electoral commission," US Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Jendayi Frazer said after completing a visit of western regions affected by electoral violence.

"I think that you need serious reform of the political institutions and you need some process of political accommodation to lower the tensions of the population before a rerun of an election would be an effective measure of who should govern the country."

Well done Vikii. These ODM chaps think they can take over Kenya by force. Kibaki has done nothing wrong. If anything, he has left 16 seats open for mediation. I am told that constitutionally he couldnt open parliament without a cabinet. Why do ODM chaps cry foul when they also rigged in their areas? Why do ODM chaps think they are always right and it is their way or no way? Why do ODM chaps want to coerce Kibaki into running the country their way? They want to rule by proxy. To hell with them.

Exactly Tom. I for one would prefer an inclusive govt. But what is so fucking sickening is this stupid ODM mentality that their side enjoys 95% approval by Kenyans and so Kibaki should dance to their whimps. They say Kalonzo will lose in 2012 as if the ODM had anything with his getting elected. Let us face it, Raila and ODM enjoy the support of 43% of Kenyans. That certainly is not the proportion of the population that should get everybody coming for instructions from them. Kenya is and will always be bigger than the ODM or any other political party for that matter.

No sane human being can support kibaki after this, however heavily blinded by tribal chauvinism he or she might be. It is just impossible.

I am one of those who fell into the trap and voted for this monster but now i regret it deeply.

Raila should continue fighting for democracy peacefully, fight for the reduction of the salary of MPs and ministers and for the scrapping off completely of lucys salary. We dont need her she is doing us more harm than good so i dont know why we should employ her.

Raila should fight for democracy and expose corruption and if he doesnt win the elections with a landslide in 2012 I will burn my kenyan passport! Kenyans will prove to be very sick people with very short memories and extremely stupid when it comes to tribes and all that crap which doesnt put food on the table nor does it pay the rent.

The man doesnt care about us, our property is being destroyed and our peopel killed and maimed, why support him? He is using us, we should wake up and unite with other kenyans to reject these beasts.

God save this nation

Vikii says 43% supports ODM, and that being the case, their grievances do not count, since the rest support Kibaki and Kalonzo.

For God Sake!

This thing is not about ODM or PNU or etcs. Its simply about the way election was handled.

Am i supposed to call a PNU supporter a thief since he supports the fact that Kibaki is in power, whether by robbery or whatever means?

Or am i supposed to call an ODMer a hooligan because they do not know how to protest?

The whole issue boils down to mistrust amongst ordinary kenyans. and yes it is 43% against the rest. That is 6 provinces against two.

Lets all put ODM/PNU aside. This thing is about saving this nation. let whatever sense of 'pseudo justice' be seen to be happening!

Anonymous said...

Mwana Ndizi: you miss the point entirely.

a) ODM along with the invited churches and SUPKEM had agreed to meet Kufuor on Friday to negotiate with the government.

b) The point of the negotiations was not simply a GNU but constitutional and institutional reforms for the sake of all Kenyans and democracy.

What good is it, brushing away this problem when even ECK that all Kenyans believe is at fault is not changed? We wait for 2012 for a repeat of the same?

Vikii, let us be sober today. In your opinion, what is the way forward? Would you prefer that we pretend there's no crisis and move on like nothing happened? If you accept that there's a crisis, is your only solution the court system? If so, are you suggesting that the courts are credible and will handle this issue with the fairness it deserves?
Do you consider yourself a constitutionalist?

Vikii said...

Constitutional reforms do not need to be arrived at in Statehouse. They do not need aided by people like John Kuffour. The last time I checked, that was the work of parliament. The Parliamentary select committe on the constitution can be reconstituted after which it can draw a road map to the overhaul of the constitution. What is the mediation about then?

Anonymous said...

Vikii Kenya is on the brink of civil war now more than ever. The manner in which we conduct ourselves now is critical.

As Andy Capp says, we all (PNU, ODM ETC.) agree there were serious problems with the elections. There are also serious problems permeating the very institutions that ought to be safeguarding democracy.

What is wrong with facing these problems head on for the sake of a peaceful Kenya?

Philip Roy said...

Vikii,

This is not good anyway you look at it.

If you look at the big picture,what is Kibaki planning for 2012 after all this drama?

Will ODM-K survive this on slot from PNU and KANU ?

What is Moi's hand in all this, now that he is back in Kenya from Germany?

What will happen to all the Kikuyus living in Rift valley after all is said and done ?

Will we ever trust each other as neighbors again?

Government of National Unity aka "NARC DREAM": we have been there done that and the results were not that pretty.

By the way isn't Kibaki head of something called Party of National Unity YANI "PNU"?

So why didn't it work?

Vikii said...

Kalamari, before I give you my suggestion, I will challenge you to first give me a better route than the court route.

We have had Raila Odinga and all the other fellows in parliament for decades, why did they not pass bills to the effect that all presidential appointments are supposed to be confirmed by parliament. You cannot keep crying the court system is rotten when you have been in a position to change that for sixteen years. IIt is just laughable.

Vikii said...

OK, so now what do you propose Roy? All you are writing there are grievances but I am yet to see anybody tell me why it was wrong for Kibaki to name a cabinet.

7 out of the 17 cabinet appointments are in critical places (e.g. security, roads, finance, justice, energy, president, local gov, etc).

and the 7 are all to people from one region.

President- Kibaki
Finance- Kimunya
Local gov- Uhuru
Security- Saitoti
Energy- Kiraitu
Justice- Karua

This Vikii is a Stone Age tribal pussyfooter who thinks by vomiting on people's shoes here in Kumekucha, she will seem to be tough. No wonder fools have the loudest voice. It was Hertzler ho quipped: "Why fools are endowed by nature with voices so much louder than sensible people possess is a mystery. It is a fact emphasized throughout history." Girl, it is not about ODM or Raila or such for your information, it is about our future we the Kumekuchans too and looking at how things are handled, it seems fossils like Kibaki and senior political masqueraders and prostitutes like Kalonzo don't care about the future of Kenya. A Kenya where our children will be born in, bred in and buried in. You are silly and saddening. Blind allegiance to certain people or unequalled hatred to others is a mark of fools whose inane heads are filled with unprofitable stuff. You can repeat yourself one million times vomiting on Kumekuchans as you foolishly tear into everyone who believes that Kibaki's step is not in the right direction, but no one ones expects tribal pussyfooters and Stone Age "intellectuals" of your ilk to give words of wisdom. If you think the fire that Kibaki is igniting is geniusness and a mark of bravery, wait for you shall see whom it consumes. Huh!

Vikii regardless of what you think. The mediation efforts should have gone on. They would have resulted in a framework for legislative and institutional changes for the sake of democracy...a road map of sorts.

Vikii the government is not interested in mediation. It has already announced that Kufuor will only be in the country for less than 24 hours.

The cabinet is a SYMBOL of Kibaki's belligerence. Many Kenyans will perceive of it as such and therein lies the problem esp. because it leads (has led) to renewed violence.

Vikii said...

Exactly Anonymous. And why do you think we cannot develop good democratic institutions after the cabinet is named? Parliament is convening next week and they can embark on just that. The ODM, the partyt that claims to be more democratic than all other parties has an overwheling majority in that parliament. That should get us "democratic institutions" within months if not weeks, dont u think?

I give up. It is impossible to reason with ODMers. The claim Kibaki rigged the election, period. But, if at all Kibaki rigged, so did ODM, so that's a moot point. But they cant see that basic fact. They former PNU supporters who are now cowed into backing ODM cant see that ODM are the ones who started the violence, in the hope that it would cow Kibaki and kikuyus. I repeat, Raila and co will not force themselves to the country's leadership. Did you see how desperate Kosgey looked at KICC, no doubt thinking of all the billions he would loot from kenyans again?

Vikii you know very well that the party most interested in reforms: ODM does not have the numbers it needs to push those reforms through. Kibaki has shown his disregard for the law and since his election, he has shown he is not interested in working with others.

Kenya is reaching a deadlock real fast and unfortunately, the President doesn't seem bothered.

I wrote to you the note below on Sunday but you conveniently refused to respond. Now I'm beginning to think I am a prophet (of "doom"). At that time it never occurred to me that Kalonzo would be that powrer greedy to even contemplate sitting with Kibaki on the same table. I now need a stronger word than "greedy" to describe him aptly. Please Vikii, use all the diplomacy and influence you can muster and tell that sadist of a man to refuse to take that job of VC until the elections fiasco can be sorted out by te many international negitiators who are 100 times better than him. If he boasts of helping in somalia and Sudan, why do we still hear of militia and Darfur crisis respectively. Being the prophet of doom that I am, I prophesy that Kibaki will give Kalonzo a hard time by ignoring him and listening to his golfing buddies. Kalonzo will be so isolated that he will begin to complain. At that time nobody will want to listen to him. He will start talking well of Raila and by then the 2012 elections will have arrived and he will have no chance of winning at all. ODM-K will have disintegrated and all his sychophants will have deserted him and joined Raila's side. WATCH THIS SPACE IN 2012!!!



"Hey, Vikii, help, HELP. You preferred presidential candidate, Mr. Kalonzo "Holier than thou, Diplomat, Mr. Clean, The Lawyer, miracle, wiper" Musyoka has arrogantly said the following:
1. That he does not regret putting pressure on Kivuitu to prematurely announce flawed results.
2. That he is against having international mediation in the Kenyan saga.
3. That ODM and PNU rigged results and he's the only one who played it clean.
4. That the suggestion of having a run-off between Kibaki and Raila will not work because (being the refined lawyer) he will go to court to say that Kibaki does not qualify for another term because he will have been sworn in office twice.

These things Kalonzo said ironically after attending a Church service today in which they prayed for peace, understanding and reconciliation in the country.
Kalonzo disgusts me every time he and his bootlicker Kilonzo open their mouths. I dare even say that Kibaki and Raila are power hungry, but he is power greedy. Does he realise that he can only talk on behalf of Kambas who make a paltry 4% of the Kenyan population? Why does he always pose like he is very intelligent, yet he is not? Why does he pose as a pious man, yet his fruits are green and with worms inside? How can he with one side of the mouth say that he is an experienced international peace-maker for Somalia and Sudan and with the other side say that Kenya does not international mediation? Is he aware of the quantity of blood of Kenyans that has been spilt by the mere announcement of Kivuitu's fake results as he arrogantly says he has no regrets for pressurizing him? Can you please tell Kalonzo that he will NEVER be Kenya's president? And please tell him to keep his big mouth shut while people mourn and try to think peace and reconciliation. Why are these Kambas {Kalonzo, Kilonzo, Kivuitu, Mutua, Kianga) seemingly enjoying the suffering of Kenyans? Infact, Kalembe Ndile is, surprisingly, the only Kamba who is currently speaking sensibly. Kalonzo must speak like a diplomat he thinks he is. he even lied in the press that he had met with Raila. Then I saw him hugging Koskey and Orengo while smiling wryly at them just before they were teargassed while trying to go to Uhuru Park yesterday. What will happen when Raila will, after negotiations or run-off, become the president? Will Kalonzo begin cheating us how they have always been friends with Raila so that he can be included in Govt? Atalia na jicho moja. Please Vikii, tell Kalonzo to smarten up, read the mood in Kenya, stop being power greedy and show some modicum of patriotism."

I feel sad. There are many well meaning Kibaki haters on this blog. They have good intentions but lack balanced reasoning. The ODM propaganda machine has worked so well on them that they swallow everything anti-Kibaki with their mouths wide open, instead of checking facts and using balanced reasoning. If Kibaki is a dictator, Raila is a tyrant. Why should Kibaki play fair if Raila and ODM have never played fair? Why, why why?

Anonymous said...

Remember when Kalonzo was criticizing the Kibaki now he's ready to go to bed with him, I stated earlier that he would wait for orders form his daddy (moi) or wait for new one from his step-daddy Kibaki. Kalonzo has been exposed. Vikii I'll refrain from insulting you personally as it would not be worth the effort nor is it warranted, but your comments are quite provoking. I will however state that Kalonzo is a little boy not fit to lead, no wonder ODM-K was eager for the results to be announced as well, they had already cut their deals as many in this blog had predicted, his role in the rigged election was to split votes and then after performing fellatio on Kibaki and his key allies he would get his position. Now having "swallowed" his um pride his miracle has arrived!

They know that hatred is their only weapon.

Vikii:

I admire your tenacity. You should have realized that there is nothing Kibaki can do (short of a mea culpa and resigning ) that would appease some of the court jesters on Kumekucha.

Now that the killing has stopped (abated??) I am enjoying watching the strategic chess match that is unfolding. I must say that after initially appearing to be lost in the woods, Kibaki's moves of the last few days are looking increasingly astute.

There are some good moves that Raila can make but throwing his toys away and saying that he won't talk is not one of them in my opinion.

If there is nothing short of a total Kibaki capitulation and the coronation of Raila that will please folks here, then I must tell them well in advance that they will be disappointed. A negotiated solution is possible but that will involve give-and-take Kibaki will not walk away and hand the presidency over to Raila short of another election.

My thoughts.

Vikii said...

Silaha, what i refuse is all this cheap intimidation by these characters. I wrote many commentys here couple weeks before the elections and said that when Kibaki wins,hooligans will take to the streets. I also wondered how anybody would honestly expect the president to surrender the presidency just because hooligans are looting in Nakumatt. That was weeks b4 the elections and my opinion of the ODM has not changed an inch. Very optimistic brothers these ones who expect people to get cowed by stones and insults.

I keep on reading the same old skewed, stupid thinking form people like Vikii. Lets put the facts straight, Kibaki did not get 4.5M votes, far from it he din't even make 3M.

Why is Kibaki worried by International mediation?

Odinga accused Kibaki of trying to divert attention from Kufuor's mission by offering bilateral talks in what he called a "public relations gimmick".

"Clearly, he is extremely worried about an independent, international review of the election outcome," Odinga said.

WARNING 1:

"We will not attend the talks on Friday. They are a sideshow," Odinga told a news conference.

WARNING 2:
"The whole thing is a gimmick, the cabinet is a joke. We do not recognise the president and therefore we won't recognise his cabinet," secretary general Anyang Nyongo of Odinga's ODM told AFP.

WARNING 3:

"The cabinet is null and void because President Kibaki did not win the election and we shall not recognise it"

1.If Kalonzo means well for the country, one would think he would insist first on Raila and Kibaki squaring out their differences before he joins his cabinet.

2. Since he has indicated that ODM/PNU rigged elections and he his the only Mr. Clean, why is he accepting the VP offer to be part of a PNU govt that he agrees rigged the election? Talk about small talk by small minds!

The Rendezvous said...

Some people like Vikii can't answer simple questions:

Q1.

Raila won 6 out of 8 provinces.Kibaki won only 1.
How come he won?


Q2.

Raila's ODM got more than 103 seats in the parliament.Gefakis group won 43+some few from affiliate parties.

How come he won?

Q3.
How did Gefaki won when even
International and domestic observers have raised their concerns.

There are several reasons to be suspicious about the official results:

The results were delayed for more than a day, at a time when ODM candidate Raila Odinga was leading

Many thousands of people seem to have only voted in the presidential election but not the parliamentary or local polls held at the same time.

Some of these results came from areas known to be pro-Kibaki
In the parliamentary race, Mr Odinga's ODM won twice as many seats as Mr Kibaki's Party of National Unity (PNU)

Results in some constituencies were different when announced nationally, to when they had previously been announced locally
The head of the election commission has admitted that turnout in one constituency was 115%.

Guys. lets ask ourselves some pertinent questions. Much as it was a very serious question Chris asked, I couldnt help laughing. 'Nime Rig, Muta do?' and that question still stands. Whether we believe Kibaki rigged or not, apart from voicing our opinions here. What will we do? Or what will you do? I believe both sides rigged but its not possible to tell how much it affected the outcome. But like i said. We can argue here all we like. Tommorow we will go to work. And come home and so on for next 5 years. I doubt any of us here will be found in Uhuru park when theres bullets and teargas flying around so. What are we going to do other than talk?

Secondly. I believe a minister can only be appointed from SITTING Mps. Right now the MP's are not sitting. They are MP's elect? they have not been sworn in? Is it constitutional to appoint a cabinet before the MP's have been sworn in? Someone help me out.

Anon @ 10.07 I agree with you fully. If Kalonzo truly cared for the future of a country he hopes to one day govern, he would have pushed Kibaki and Odinga towards negotiations.

Vikii,

I have already said that by being awake 24hrs in order to rubbish every comment here on Kumekucha will not sell your prepossessed and tragically wrenched points. Dismissing people as ODM hooligans is a base insult that unearths your level of intelligence, and I would remind you again that fools have had the loudest voice since man was created. There are many people who are really worried about the prospect of a civil war in Kenya and they have never been ODM supporters including myself. Despite that, if an ODM-er has a point, since he has a stake in the Nation, he/she must be accorded respect and his points take into consideration. Kibaki agreed to meet the Pentagon; then went ahead and made some jokes. It is tantamount to eating a man’s lunch, inviting him to dinner to appease him some and then proceeding to eat the dinner before he gets there. I don’t know if you were taught talking too much and simply resisting sensible ideas leads to victory (you seem be one). Then Kibaki filled all the important ministries and furthermore filled it will fellow tribesmen. It is a challenge to the nation and to all the sane Kenyans including myself who have supported him though I didn’t vote. If your father goes wrong, you must tell him the truth. I’m not fed by Kibaki nor Raila and whoever takes Kenya the Rwanda way will not get our support. The question is: who is more arrogant? It is Kibaki. You don’t leave your father beating your mum simply because he is your dad. You must admit that Kibaki is very wrong in appointing his illegal cabinet, and admit that his cabinet doesn’t represent the true face of Kenya and admit that he is being driven by arrogance and base desires that will make him come down tumbling like a house of cartoons, otherwise continue parroting here and dismissing everyone as if your intelligence is measured by how much you vomit on Kumekuchans.

Raila Odinga said he hoped international mediation could solve the crisis. He says the vote was rigged in favour of President Mwai Kibaki.

But Mwai Kibaki is trying to play with FIRE.

"What Kibaki has done is really eroding the conditions for peace talks," Karuti Kanyinga, a political scientist at the University of Nairobi, said of the new Cabinet.

"For a government of national unity to have meaning, it must include Odinga and (Odinga's party), otherwise it cannot bring about reconciliation."

Before the elections, there were all these rumors about Kalonzo and the deal he had made with Moi and Kibaki (evidenced by the presence of mutula kilonzo as his mouth piece.

Vikii has taken off after the heat became unbearable to him. We may look mediocre, but the people reading our concerns will see a common thread: Kibaki stole the votes in broad daylight (Moi was much better in this game than him), blocked any avenues for feedback, went ahead announcing and organizing completely oblivious of the reality on the ground, and now wants to put us to great embarassment by behaving badly in the presence of dignitaries such as Kuffor, Chissano, Frazer.

PNU rigged the votes for ODM in some areas so that when the thing goes to court, they can say ODM also rigged-and they will have the "evidence." We were told long before the election day that PNU had sent people abroad to print counterfeit ballot papers. No alleagations were made against ODM pre-election. Even if ODM rigged, why then can't Kibaki allow recount /re-tallying of votes or a re-run? Could it be that PNU rigged more and will therefore still be guiltier? Kalonzo also suffers from guilt by omission. He knows rigging was done in his turf (read Kambaland) and he is not complaining because he knows what side of his bread is buttered.

By the way, is this the CLEAN HANDS cabinet we were promised? If Saitoti and Kiraitu are clean, then who is dirty? Secondly, if 17 Ministers are only half of what Kibaki intends to have as his cabinet, dose this mean that the full cabinet will have 34 Ministers? Kweli kazi inaendelea. He promised the women at least a third of the seats and a higher presence of youth. How many have you counted? Aaaah, I'm going to vomit.

Kalonzo, where is your miracle? You said you would pass BETWEEN Raila and Kibaki. Now you have gone BEHIND Kibaki. You shall not use the name of the LORD in vain, says the 2nd commandment.

Considering the rate of arrogance spewing from Kibakis prostate mind, we can only assume that he must now start strategizing on rigging the next election, assuming Oldonyo Lengai does not erupt (and I am not talking about the mountain).

Taking into account recent events, he cannot afford to loose 2012 to someone / anyone on the other side of the divide. If his "2012 project" (seemingly UK not KM)fails to hit the mark (kwaheri mapema), they might as well ALL get one-way tickets to some funny country in the Northern Hemisphere.

Flash back to 1988. Kibaki was quoted saying that rigging requires intelligence!

THis is the most single factor that is taking Kenya to a civil war. What a tragedy
Whatever Kibaki and Raila agree, they must show the voter some form of justice.
The voters did their bit, but the politicians are trying to abuse their fundamental rights-choice and choosing of their leaders
Democracy becomes a victim here.
It is the Kenyan voter who lost on 30th December. Sadly, with a long term consequency to the various peoples of Kenya

Kibaki could not have done this without the full backing from United States, UK and the foreign investors. TheSE four groups of people ARE WORKING TOGETHER AND do not want Odinga in power. Full stop!

The other tribes might as well hang themselves. Elites in Kibaki's group,United States, UK and the foreign investors have so much interest in Kenya's natural resources and they are not ready to share them with other tribes of Kenya. This regime is going to be ultra brutal!!!

Remember what happened to Patrice Lumumba and introduction of Mobutu.
Democratic Republic of Congo's curse has been it vast natural resources the WEST feels belong to them. There are slums everywhere in DRC while the resources are making foreingers and few elites in power very very very rich. The African in DRC have been brutalized by the Belgians, Mobutu and the western powers with interest in vast Minerals in that republic. This may continue untill all these resources are exhausted.

Too bad for those in Kenyans who wanted change. Well, it is not going to happen. So go home and wait for your death.

His actions of urging Kivuitu to declare a winner in a flawed poll and accepting the VP’s position are effectively the last nails in his political coffin.

Kibaki is blind but sly: But open your eyes and PROVE ME WRONG in the year 2012.

Kalonzo will accept the vice-presidency on Thursday 10th of January or earlier. But in 2011 January, Kibaki will throw him out of the cabinet will be replaced by Uhuru Kenyatta.

Uhuru Kenyatta will contest presidency and will "win" in 2012 after a more intelligent rigging involving IT-professionals. The country will be in a mess and more than 5000 people will die, mainly Kalenjins, Luhyas, coastal people and Luos. Our country will see a crisis not yet seen in Africa before.

Fellow Kenyans, do you want this future for your children? Why is it important to you that this or that individual from this or that tribe rules? Is it not important that politicians respect the constituition of the land?

What matters to me is that any president follows the regulations set down. Fellow Kenyans, Kibaki, Kalonzo, Uhuru are proving to us that they dont respect us (we are the country).

Find away of protesting, your tribal interest should not overrule your intelligence. THINK deeply to heal Kenya.

While ODM is sitting pretty waiting for "talks", PNU is busy entrenching itself. Where does ODM get this crazy idea that Kibaki is going anywhere? Where? Do you think Kibaki will leave the presidency willingly? Kibaki said so many times before the elections (and most of you thought he was senile, that "mtakaa hapo hapo, sisi tutakaa hapa hapa.." )

ATI: US/UK want talks of peace! Wake up, even the US is fighting in Iraq, for "freedom", they say. Yet here, ODM is being made to think that peace is the all too valuable must have. If people of Kenya (non GEMA of course) feel they have no freedom, do you have to get a Mzungu to tell you what to do?

Who would have questioned the Mau Mau fighting for their land and freedom? Only the oppressors of that time, the British. Who will question if the Kaleos, Luos, luhyas are fighting for their freedom? The Oppressors of course. That people, if the reality.

Vikii is a man, Kibaki is a mzungu, Raila is a saint, savior and redeemer and Kivuitu is a very fair young man, plus Chris of Kumekucha is PNU enthuast who loves peace in his blogs(born again), and Marianne Brinner is a virgin, Sam Okello is a ugandan pastor (wait, that is true, so I guess I have to change that...)...u see the drift right?

Annon @ 12.39 I agree, at the end of the day the cabinet of the people will be elected in due course. However, i do not disagree with the current cabinet and I have faith that sense will prevail in Friday's meeting. The good work must go on with or without Kibaki or Raila.

MR Odinga knows very that Kibaki had no choice but to name a cabinet. Any rensposible leader will do the same thing otherwise we will have a country withoput a direction or a way forward. without a cabinet, there would be chaos and more internal instability. I think it was the right thing to do while we sort out the Kibaki/Raila Issue

Well spoken and people should not forget that, you have to fight to get what you want - people yarning for a good fight should stand up and start being counted , we have listened to so much talk and only shit is being thrown on our faces - i wonder how many will turn the other cheek. Get real people organise

@12:49
Please get the point right. The matter is not between Raila and Kibaki.

The matter is between Kibaki (the thief) and the majority of Kenyans. If you dont sort out the root cause of this matter then you will encounter more ugly events in Kenya in the year 2012.

Criminals should not be left to go scott free, otherwise many immitators will follow.

Guys vikii as i know him is a child of the kenyan corrupt elite and he understands too well that without kibaki his parents cannot enjoy their ill-gotten wealth hence will not reason or be objective.

Thanks to Ruto's activities...

The Bishops congratulated President Kibaki on his re-election for a second term of office noting that Kenyans had experienced expanded freedoms, peace and rapid development in the last five years of his stewardship.

The Bishops were Silas Yego of the Africa Inland Church, Cornelius Korir of the Catholic Diocese of Eldoret, the moderator of Reformed church of Africa Joseph Murpus, Stephen Kewasis of the Anglican church, Geoffrey Songok of Reformed church of Africa and Thomas Kogo of the Anglican Church.

News just in. Kalonzo has accepted his position:

"We have been consulting, we have been in touch with other parties," he said. Kalonzo, who was on Tuesday evening appointed the Vice-President, said he would use his position to reconcile the country, which has been rocked by political upheaval since the announcement of presidential results.

"As a VP I want to take a lead to reconcile this nation to ensure we have a safe and prosperous country," he told The Standard at his Karen home. Thanking President Kibaki for the appointment, Kalonzo said his party’s position has not changed, saying he has been on record for a coalition government with any party.

too much talk wont solve our problems, we are now brazing for the real fight any body man enough,to put too talk a side and enlist.talking to kibaki is like talking to a brick wall

papa plus said...

Am amazed that kibaki did not appoint Moi his VP! Speaking of the devil; where the hell is Moi?

Anyway, Kibaki is simply consolidating his government. Expect some ODMers to bulk at the 17 ministerial offers left and the over $10000 a month salary plus stipends. Kibaki is banking that Kenyan's greed over their patriotism and so called democratic principles. Soon, Raila will be left in the cold all by himself.

Sad but true.

@Anon11:00 & @Anon11:03: Poleni if I insulted you, that was certainly not my intention

I agree with you. We need long term institutional solutions.

@Vikii & @Anon10:18: Surely we can post here without saying that "we hope smarter people..." or calling people "bitches". I know these are passionate times but, surely, please.

All: The game is indeed getting interesting. I see one face saving way for everybody to get out of this and that is to implement the 2002 MOU. EMK-President, SKM-Vice President, RAO-Executive(?) Prime Minister, William Ruto hopefully in Kamiti.

To President Kibaki: You have Saitoti and Kiraitu in you cabinet, what happened to clean hands? And are Michuki's hands not bloodied by the 500 lives that were lost to extra-judicial executions prior to the election. Is your word still not worth very much?

Can somebody speak to their relatives in the to take this as a fight against all kenyans and that they need to revolt IMMEDIATELY. In times like these some will be counted as heroes, others as cowards, but victory shall BITTERLY come for those who will be like to survive to see it. I agree with the person who talked of the fight IS NOW. LET PEOPLE SHARPEN THEIR CRUDE WEAPONS, for this fight. Explore ways of getting better weapons and let Kenya go down in history too. Those who will survive will build a better sensitive KENYA, may be the name will also be changed. AMEN!

I mean relatives in the armed forces to fight this fight from now on till the filth mad pple in statehouse come to normal.

We kenyans have refused to be cowed.We fought moi we shall fight kibaki,anybody thinking of justice to be got in the boardroom is blind to the reality on the ground.This war is far beyond Raila and kibaki its about winning back the trust of voters to have confidence in future elections.We know where it hurts most. dont be surprised when the police, the gsu and the army refuse to take shoot to kill orders.

after reading this you will see all plans are in place and that they are also trying to put KIKUYU/KAMBA army men together to gang against others. Our army men must rise and let all systems go. Till there is democracy in Kenya, lives be lost as price. The lucky to survive shall remember the path, long and painful but has to be done.

anons@1:20pm,1:21pm,1:25pm, what did you expect the Bishops particularly the one from Eldoret to do when Ruto and his militia are burning women and children in churches? The consequences of Ruto's action is he has reserved a spot for himself in Kamiti Maximum. He might want to start his campaigns and rigging plans for the wafungwas early whom he will be representing in Kamiti.

Is William Ruto A Dead Man Walking?

stop aportioning blame, how come no one is talking of the burning of a church in kibera by mungiki? what about live bullets used on peacuful demonstrator? if kukuyus want there kingdom they might as well stay in central kenya and rig elections there? 7 kikuyus in in 17 man cabinet payed for the all kenyans whose rights have been raped is despicable. we are ready for war braze yourself loud talk wont help its too late for that. We know where it hurts the jigger infested maggots more

Remember those death raw convicts who were left out by the state just before elections, the state claiming they escaped - think again before you start blaming pple - but I still maintain bishops are a sham. The state calls them in to pour ice on the wounds they have inflicted - the oldest trick for Governments in distress is to kill thier own people and blame it on thier so called " enemies ". This Govt is so determined that they will kill thier own and blame it on others, THATS WHAT YOU ARE DEALING WITH

Anonymous said...

The only organisation that could perpetuate the crime is GOK - Like any crime analyse the motive, opportunity and reason, I dare put it to you if it was Ruto he could have done it before the election to create mas exodus , but the timming was just after the election and organised with precision - covert operatives - to divert attention of the fix the GOK was on and justify the killings and extra judicial activities the govt was doing. Analyse the motive and oportunity before you apportion blame.

anon@3:21 Small assignment for you, go to cnn.com and look for the video showing the burning of AIC church in Kibera, listen to the comments of the bystanders heard in the background mentioning that the church was burned because that is where Kikuyu's worshipped. Those were not peaceful protestors, they were murderous, raping and looting, ethnic cleansing protestors. If the police committed any killings that were not of such characters and which were not accidental, let the responsible officers carry their own crosses just as Ruto will carry his when he moves to his new digs at Kamiti. You can talk all you want about war, but if you have never fought it and are sitting behind a computer in a foreign land then your words are simply just that - cowardly words. If you haven't learned yet, fanya fujo uone then come and tell us give us a briefing.

Only Ruto and his militia fit this definition:

"Is there a human being that can burn a church with people in? Unless they're mad -- no, even a madman cannot."

Vikii said...

Yeah, I understand every unprintable adjective in the English language has been used to describe me for refusing to view the world through ODM's tiny lenses. I have no apologies to make to anybody. I do not buy that movement's way of seeing things and never will. Can someone once again tell me why Kibaki was wrong in naming his cabinet and how that becomes a justification for hooliganism and thuggery?

Vikii can you chat now? I'm online-manzi wa Nyeri

Sam Okello said...

Calling you unprintable epithets is not smart. But maybe telling you that Kibaki never stole the election is. And may I add that he's perfectly in order to call the Parliament to session, and to use the GSU to disperse protesting Kenyans, and to form a Cabinet before mediation, and to name as vice president a man who brought in 17 MPs, and to dish all the crucial Cabinet posts to Kikuyu henchmen, and is now set to introduce impunity in Kenya. All that is just fine with you, Vickii, because you know what? The dictatorship of a brother is not dictatorship. But what will you say when the shoe is in the other foot? Maybe you think you'll be dead by 2017 and you won't have to witness a reversal of fortunes. I pray that God give you a long life.

Silaha said...

I spent a few hours this evening googling Mutahi Ngunyi and I am amazed at his prescience.
I have a write up on him on my blog. Read it and join me in saying "Wow!"

Here is a sample of his words written before the election.

If ODM wanted to ‘win’, they should have planned to ‘lose’. And if they had ‘lost’, this country would be in a different place today. The uprising against Kibaki and the only province that voted ‘Yes’ would have been overwhelming.
If you drive the Kikuyus against you in an election, their numbers will frustrate you. With the magic of incumbency, all Kibaki needs is an alliance with a small tribe and he has the election bagged. This is why an alliance between him and Kalonzo Musyoka would be sexy.
[Addressing Raila] Kibaki will not win this election. You will lose. My hunch is that your lack of inhibitions will result in a fatal error.
If you become King, it will be because the Kalenjins said so. Of the ODM vote, 50 per cent is Kalenjin. In other words, they have 50 per cent share in ODM. They are not voting for Raila: they are voting against President Kibaki. It is a protest vote.
Similarly, they have gleefully settled on the idea of William Ruto becoming president in 2027, after you and Musalia Mudavadi. Sir, this kind of high sacrifice does not make sense in politics. My conclusion? The Kalenjins are deeply wounded by Kibaki.
My counsel to you is this: Keep them hostage to the anger against Kibaki. Their wounds must not heal, and they must not break away from the anger spell. This is important because, apart from the anger, they have nothing else against Kibaki.

Anonymous said...

It was wrong because with just a little consideration he would have realized that it is a bad provocation at this point in time.

And I'm not looking through tiny ODM lenses. We did vote for Raila but not because we were so enchanted by him. As my husband - a Kikuyu - so aptly put it: we don't know if we can trust Raila but we know for sure we cannot trust Kibaki. As for me he was out of grace the minute he cuddled up with Moi, honorless old hyena.

As it seems now, neither Kibaki nor Raila give a hoot about the people, certainly not for the small people.
All they want is power, both of them.

I feel sorry for my husband. He suffered a great deal under the Moi regime, then found out that Kibaki was nothing but a cheap Kenyatta copy and now he realizes that Odinga plays the tribal card to heat up tribal warfare even worse than Moi did it in 1992. And folks in Kenya still have not learned that in the end there are only two tribes in the country: the rich and the poor.

At times I wonder how he keeps his Kenyan pride upright.

Sorry but I'm mad as hell!

I have never seen stupid idiots who are on govt payroll arguing so childish and senselessly as some of the comments above. They did this before elections but still ODM had the majority votes, so they are hecklers paid to give hope to a dying regime. WAR IS INEVITABLE HERE AND SENSIBLE PPLE CAN SEE IT COMING FASTER THAN ANTICIPATED. Best silahas are sold at easily, pple need to know this so they can start accummulating good stock. Pangas are only good on one to one. Asere mag sum are also good in the rural areas, but not on joteko mag serikal. Experts on gik ma imuocho need to give clues as well.
