A Generation Ruined by Deception and Fraud

The revelation that cheating in national examination is the principal reason behind the present spate of destruction in our secondary schools paints a very bleak future for the Kenyan youth. We may choose to live in denial but after last year’s examination debacle, the Kenya National Examination council (KNEC) lost its credibility and the present unrest is doing the institution’s name no good. The first casualty will be the authenticity and quality of KNEC certificates and their acceptance by other institution and employers both locally and abroad.

Blaming the current riots in schools on illicit drugs and poor parenting is akin to immaculately dressing a festering wound. Granted, these two factors together with erratic communication between students and their teachers outside the classroom are symptoms of a dysfunctional system. Well, the Minister for education has not disappointed either by jumping to such cosmetic measures like banning DVDs and music from school buses. But again you don’t expect the good minister to prescribe a noose for his own neck after renewing KNEC CEO’s tenure oblivious of the examination fiasco characterized by historic TOP UPS.

If you thought Kimunya’s head rolled because he lied on camera think again. Amos was only unfortunate to have not spiced his untruths with enough bravado and impunity. He should have consulted Minister Ongeri who denied any cheating in last year’s KCSE neither recourse to mock results despite the emerging facts that dead and sick students who never sat their exams have results similar to their mock outcome.

Impunity and self-deception
Despite media highlighting exam frauds every year the ministry and her dinosaur PS have been on a mission to destroy a whole generation with their irresponsible acts of impunity and deception. Head teachers have confirmed large scale cheating in exams since 2005 and now the then form ones who are his year’s candidates cannot afford the pain of being subjected to rigorous assessment while they know cheaper way to examination success awaits them anyway. Give it to them, these students are smart and won’t risk jeopardizing guaranteed superlative performance by sitting mocks whose results will only expose their schemes. After last year’s use of mock exams to moderate fraudulent KCSE results you cannot fail to see and feel the students’ fears.

No commissions or task forces will help us address our corrupt culture that singularly and exclusively define our socio-political setup in Kenya. It may have started with Moi meddling in everything under the sun including hasty and unprofessional introduction of the 8-4-4 education system. But IMPUNITY and DECEPTION by the Kibaki regime has accelerated the decay so much so that nothing within our borders is sacrosanct any more. While Moi had his tentacles spread anywhere to have his presence felt, Kibaki has DELEGATED impunity and fraud to his cronies who milks the cow even after she has dropped dead.

Education has lost its pride amidst poor Kenyans as the only avenue to make a mark on individual and community lives. Primitive wealth accumulation is our singular obsession and the rich are busy buying exams for their kids. School heads have been threatened if they fail to facilitate cheating. Lack of focused leadership is our bane and our wrong education system focusing exclusively on academics is not spared this malady. Until such a time that we stop electing leeches for leaders and impunity and deception are banished from national psyche, we are unwittingly hurtling towards self destruction.

I say;
Taabu, the FRAUD started in 1992 when these 5-star conmen 'defected' from KANU to form DP. This was after RAO, Orengo, Matiba, etc had done the hard part. Then in 2003, we were conned yet again when we voted for the thief-in-chief and he betrayed the NARC dream. The humiliation of the referendum defeat probably made him STEAL the election in 2007.

No wonder he had to be escorted by the one and only RAO to be able to visit IDPs in Rift Valley in daylight. As a 'popularly elected president', it appears even MAU FOREST is too much of a burden to bother.

By the way, I am told HEALTH problems have caught up. Chris' article the other day was spot on. IKO KITU. Its so serious and it may force us back to the ballot even before 2012. I verified that with a member of his family. Watch this space.

Meanwhile, all Kumekuchans are invited to KISUMU this Friday to a football match. AFC Leopards vs Gor Mahia. A match organised by GMFC to raise funds and also as an incentive boost to AFC to return to the the kenyan premier league. The Kisumu ASK show is also due this week and although the president has been invited to officially open the biggest agricultural show in Western Kenya, no confirmation has so far been received from Muthaura. (Propably waiting for the shield that is PM RAO to return to escort him around).

Why does it appear to me that its the ODM wing of the Coalition government that appears to be doing or rather undoing the historical wrongs and decay. The PNU ministers seem to be abetting the very same. HEADS MUST ROLL!!!

We have known for a very long time that EXAMS are leaked or bought by influential parents/schools. Last years cheat was exposed by investigative journalism. I expected those results to be cancelled but NO, our leaders were too busy politicking to even notice.

Apart from overhauling the system, we need to rethink the way of awarding grades in exams. Merely cramming leaked stuff will not suffice. Maybe standardized test should be introduced similar to SAT that the US and other countries require before entering their universities. Also, under the present BOGUS system students scoring a C+ and over should automatically be allowed to proceed to take university administered entrance exams and the grade that they obtain from these is the final grade used to decide whether they enter or fail to enter Universities. Then KNEC and its inefficiencies will be watered down.

Rhyymemaster,
You are spot on. But wait a minute unless the culture of corruption fed by IMPUNITy and deceptionis eradicated nothing will stop thse fraudsters from buying university entrance exams just like some chaps do use secretaries and corrupt admins to access university exams. We must reinvent ourselves by rewarding hard work and not punish it. Only then will students study with the peace of mind that only their heads can see them through.

Apparently even senior education officials who should know better have not been left behind.

I know of a case where a son of a PDE who despite going to some of our best schools remained 'unteachable' and because he 'knew wasn't going to do well'(or so the teachers thought)on the exam, he chose to go through the motions of sitting in class and pulling the tail every term.
Wonder of wonders, he ended up with a plain A grade in the national exam and a fully paid government scholarship to Britain. Obviously, he will not perform well and may even end up dropping out of college, hence forcing such colleges to view future Kenyan applications with a lot of suspicion.

If/when this boys comes back to Kenya, he will use the parents' connections to land a plum job - and the cycle will continue into the next generation.

KNEC has lost credibility and I wonder how the minister expects these kids to take an exam when last year's debacle has never really been resolved.

Always running away from the truth and heaping blames. Phil u are one hilarious stupid man. So it all started in 1992 and thats why there is school strikes? were you even out of kindergaten by then??? weird, and of course we have likes of Taabu to cheer you on and the heinous lies in Kumekucha unravels.

I repeat myself what i said the last time we had this issue. the high school kids were shown by the `masters of violence and deceit (ODM)` how to express their anger. they seem to have learnt from the best. they were even given practicals by ODM after the elections. so they are just borrowing from the ODM script. thats why its happening this year. we have had exam irregularities before so dont come whinning like its the first time haters.

mapambano was their song as they raped, looted and killed.

Expecting the government as currently constituted to make any radical changes in the way things are run, is akin to squeezing water out of a rock.

Raila and some of his minsiters are trying and you can all see the resistance they are facing.

It's especially sad when young kids see Fraud and Deception as the only way to get a decent grade in the national exam.

Recently, the nurses council lamented at the high percentage of nurses failing the national exam- this year's 45% failure is extremely high, especially for a profession that deals with people's lives.

Folks, think about the other future professionals - doctors especially. I have heard scary stories about the calibre of medical students admitted to Moi university especially.

Fighting this monster requires concerted effort from wenye nchi.

Let me narrate a personal experience. A child to somebody who matters missed the uni cut off to one of the competitive courses by 1 point. She was a nice humble kid, not the flashy show-off-my-dad's-stolen wealth kid.
Anyway, our class soon got to know that one amongst us did not meet the cut-off.
Soon, questions were being asked(by students) and the administration was put to task and as you can imagine, the kid felt very uncomforatble and never really fitted in.
To cut the long story short, the 'kid' was withdrawn and sent off to Britain where s/he completed a course and came back with a masters degree...yes, BEFORE WE COMPLETED OUR STUDIES (remember the strikes over nothing, and year long holidays).
To rub it in, this kid landed a plum job, due to connections and those from poor backgrounds like us had to go through the whole tarmacking process.

From this, I realized that these thieves will naturally fight back.
The onus is on the wenye nchi to keep on smoking them out of their hideouts, shame and name them and smack any hands that stray into the cookie jar.

PEACE

So the kids from central with the highest number of strikes do not have any role models in central?
please remind me where mungiki derive their membership, support and funding from?

Anonymous said...

The cut off points in exams are as arbitrary as they come, and anyone missing entry into uni just because of one point should not be crucified and/or looked down upon by those who made it through.

In addition, these periodic one off systems of determining an individual's future really suck, and introduce undue pressure in students lives, hence the cheating. More effort should be made to designing a system that evaluates performance consistently throughout a students schooling and factoring that into the end result.

Ultimately the standards of our local universities, especially the government ones, have so deteriorated that those who dont make it in and seek alternatives even outside the country are better off than their peers in the longer term.

You are onto something- I do know kids from some schools who I know now through teachers that they did not care or attend school regulary and even reports were send to their parents but - guess what the parents abused the teachers- and now some of the teachers(this is in 3 seperate schools private/public were shocked that these same kids received "A" in last years exam- this teachers send their queries and complains to the examination council and have been totally ignored.

I think this is what the other students are striking about- wouldn't you??
Yani if you sat next to a student in class who never did any work and received E's and D's through out the year in all the tests and exam- then when final exams come this same student gets "A's" and a full government scholarship abroad university- wouldn't you feel cheated if you are one of those who alays got an A or B average in tests and worked and studied your butt off-( I would be questioning the system too and the fairness of marking exams and why the cheating and others buying of exam papers??

THE MINISTER SHOULD BE SACKED AND THE EXAMINATION COUNCIL MUST BE OVERHAUL- THEY SHOULD NOT BE IN OFFICE -PERIOD BY NOW THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN SACKED-
THIS IS A BIG SHAME TO THE COUNTRY
AND ATI NOW ONGERI THE MINISTER IS LOOKING AT ALL OTHER EXCUSES -INSTEAD OF DEALING WITH THE FACTS STARING AT HIM FACE ON-
LAST YEARS EXAMINATION AND RESULTS MEAN NOTHING AND IF I WERE A UNIVERSITY IN ENGLAND OR STATES OR CANADA- i WOULD DEMAND THIS GOVERNMENT SPONSORED STUDENTS TO TAKE ANOTHER ENTRANCE EXAM (PROOF THAT THEY PASSED) OR ELSE SEND THEM BACK TO KENYA AND CANCEL THEIR VISA'S!! NO MORE CORRUPTION EVEN WITH HANDLING GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIPS..

I'M SENDING A LETTER TO ALL EMBASSIES IN KENYA (BRITISH, AMERICAN, CANADIAN TO FLAG A RED LIGHT ON THOSE GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIPS AND VISA'S

i DEMAND ALL THIS STUDENTS MUST SEAT FOR A FULL EXAM- TO PROOF THEY DESERVE THIS KENYA GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIPS WHICH ARE DONATED BY THIS SAME COUNTRIES(who are not supporting corruption)
give them another full fledged testing before issuing them with Visa's or give them 6months visa and demand a report from the University directly - check if they have passed in their first term at the university and if not withdraw the Visa- and this way it will help to weed out the fake(cheating students) whose parents bought them the exams in order to get a corrupt stolen government scholarship.

I rather have people be paid $10 dollars to demonstrate against thugs and thieves like kimunya placed in the finance docket by Kibaki to steal from kenyans and many other thugs like Muthurua to be removed from office-

we must fight against this thugs or else Kenya will sink!
I guess Raila and the Coalition are asleep- How dare Raila and cronies Sleep on the Job- How dare they ask us Kenyan TAX payers to be understanding on the big salaries they are receiving and yet they can't even stop corruption that is staring them in the face!!

HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH
Letter to the Minister of Education regarding concern over continued use of corporal punishment against children

http://hrw.org/english/docs/2008/07/16/kenya19279.htm

Hon. Samson Kekeo Ongeri
Minister of Education
Ministry of Education
Jogoo House B, Harambee Avenue
Nairobi, Kenya

Dear Sir,

We are writing to urge you to take decisive action on the problem of violence against children, and specifically corporal punishment in schools and in other settings. We believe that in your new role as Minister of Education, you will have a crucial function in improving the future of young Kenyans and protecting their rights.

Free Email Newsletter

We recognize that over the past eight years Kenya has made some progress in addressing the issue of corporal punishment in schools. Prior to 2001, corporal punishment in schools in Kenya was routine, arbitrary, and often brutal. As documented in a Human Rights Watch report “Spare the Child,” published in September 1999, teachers used caning, slapping, and whipping to maintain classroom discipline and to punish children for poor academic performance. Bruises and cuts were regular by-products of school punishments, and more severe injuries—such as broken bones, knocked-out teeth, and internal bleeding—were not infrequent. At times, beatings by teachers left children permanently disfigured, disabled, or dead.

As you are aware, the government banned physical and psychological abuse through the enactment of the Children’s Act in 2001, and in Legal Notice No. 56, which explicitly banned corporal punishment in schools. Since then, slow change has been occurring in Kenya. Some schools have started to adopt non-violent methods of disciplining children, and have abandoned caning. In 2002, the Director of Education issued a circular to all heads of learning institutions, reminding them that corporal punishment was outlawed.

The government also carried out training seminars on alternative forms of discipline. Some teachers are now recognizing the benefits of respectful treatment of their pupils. As one teacher pointed out to Human Rights Watch: “Now, I see that the pupils come forward and speak their mind. Before with corporal punishment they were shy and didn’t approach us.” This observation is confirmed by academic studies, which have found that corporal punishment leads to higher levels of immediate compliance and aggression, and lower levels of moral internalization and mental health.

However, there is still considerable progress to be made. Corporal punishment is still widely used in schools, as the African Network for the Prevention and Protection against Child Abuse and Neglect (ANPPCAN), the Kenya Alliance For Advancement of Rights of Children (KAARC) and other Kenyan non-governmental organizations have documented. In August 2007, Human Rights Watch researchers carried out interviews with pupils, teachers and Ministry of Education officials. Pupils described how some teachers continue to cane children, while others resort to other forms of physical punishment, such as standing in the hot sun with their hands in the air for several hours; kneeling on the ground for extended periods; slapping and pinching. In some instances, physical abuse by teachers has led to serious and lasting injuries. Teachers also punish children by giving them harsh tasks, such as running long distances or uprooting tree stumps.

These continued abuses against children constitute a violation of current national laws, as well as a violation of Kenya’s international obligations as a party to the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child. They show that the government must do more to fight corporal punishment in schools, and address weaknesses in the law and in implementing existing policies:

1. The Children’s Act does not explicitly ban corporal punishment in schools, homes or other settings;
2. legal protections against abuse must be strengthened.
3. There have been too few prosecutions of teachers who seriously abuse children;
4. more needs to be done to facilitate access to justice for those parents and children who want to take their case to court.
5. Teacher training has been too limited; typically, one teacher per school was sent to a training on alternative forms of discipline and counseling of pupils.
6. The majority of teachers have not been trained and feel that the person who was trained at their school is not a sufficient resource for them.

The introduction of free primary education in 2003 exacerbated problems of discipline for many teachers. In some schools, teachers have more than one hundred pupils in their classrooms, including older children who were sent to school for the first time and found it hard to accept the authority of teachers. The government did not do enough to prepare teachers for this challenge. Current numbers of teachers are not sufficient to lower class sizes to a manageable level.

Some parents have brought their children to school and caned them in front of teachers, or asked the teachers to cane them in their presence. For the ban in schools to be effective corporal punishment must be abolished in all settings. The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, in its 2007 review on children’s rights in Kenya, has expressed concern about “corporal punishment in the home, in the penal system, in alternative-care settings, as well as in employment settings,” as well as “the continued use of corporal punishment in practice by certain schools and the lack of measures to enforce the prohibition of this practice.”

The UN Secretary-General’s Study on Violence against Children, presented to the UN General Assembly in October 2006, showed once more the dire need for concrete action to protect children against corporal punishment in public and private settings. A core recommendation of the report is that governments prohibit all violence against children, including corporal punishment.

The study’s chapter on violence against children in schools states that “governments have the obligation to explicitly prohibit violence against children by law, and to ensure the implementation of related policies and procedures at the school level—specifically putting a stop to corporal punishment and other humiliating or degrading treatment, bullying and other sexual and gender-based violence.”

While the previous government participated in the regional launch of the UN Violence Study in May 2007, it failed to engage in any meaningful follow-up to implement the Study’s recommendations. We, therefore, appeal to you to take strong action against corporal punishment in Kenya, in conjunction with the Minister of Gender and Children Affairs and the Minister of Justice, National Cohesion and Constitutional Affairs. We specifically urge you to initiate the following measures:

• Introduce legislation explicitly prohibiting corporal punishment in school, in the home, and in all other settings. This could be done through amendments to the Children’s Act and the Education Act, which are currently being prepared for vote in parliament.

• Conduct public education and awareness raising campaigns on children’s rights to protect them from all forms of violence, including corporal punishment. Promote alternative, participatory, non-violent forms of discipline. This campaign should include work with parents, teachers, and other members of the community.

• Publish teacher guidelines on alternative forms of discipline in schools jointly with non-governmental children’s rights NGOs.

• Provide regular training to current and new teachers on the ban on corporal punishment, alternative forms of discipline and counseling.

• Increase the number of teachers to reduce pressure and discipline problems in schools, to improve dialogue between pupils and teachers, and raise the education standards in Kenya.

• Improve monitoring of teachers, guardians or others responsible for and working with and for children to ensure compliance with the ban on corporal punishment.

• Ensure that judicial action is taken against those who carry out corporal punishment in schools, in violation of Legal Notice No. 56. Take measures to facilitate access to justice for child victims and their parents.

• Take a lead in implementing the recommendations of the UN Study on Violence against Children, and for that purpose, set up a task force to develop and implement a national strategy or plan of action on ending violence against children (as recommended by The Cradle in a letter on May 20, 2008).

• Raise awareness among children about their rights, including the right to seek prosecution of those who use violence against them.

We hope that you will consider these as priority issues in your action plans and policies, and would welcome further discussion with you on our findings and recommendations.

What some pupils and teachers told Human Rights Watch

“The children get beaten in school. All the teachers do it. I have also been beaten.” (Girl, age 14, Central province, Nairobi, August 10, 2007)

“If a teacher uses corporal punishment, like the English teacher for example, a student will know she is coming to beat us ;and we simply feel insecure. It doesn’t help us to get better in English.” (Girl, age 13, Western province, Vihiga district, August 1, 2007)

“There are many forms of corporal punishment beyond just caning. For example, teachers can be mean and give you a plastic sac and say to fetch water with it, but this is impossible. Or they can give you a jerry can and tell you to go to the river, and use your mouth to fill up the jerry can.” (Boy, age 14, Western province, Vihiga district, August 1, 2007)

“The caning is there; maybe sometimes, if you are late, you are caned - or when you are fighting with your friends. Other teachers who don’t practice corporal punishment might make you sweep the classroom, might send you home, call your parents in, make you cut the grass at school, or run around the school ten times.… If [the teacher] calls the parents, then they cane you more than you have gotten at school.” (Pupil, Coast Province, Mombasa, August 13, 2007)

“Our teacher will hit us with the cane. Three times on the back of the hands for making mistakes or for making noise in class for example. This can happen daily someone will get caned for doing something.” (Boy, age 14, Central Province, Nairobi, August 11, 2007)

“When the circular from the government first came out, teachers didn’t know how to adjust, because we said that this is how we were raised. Then the government did one training on how to use counselling and testing. Only one teacher from each school went to that training.” (Teacher, Western province, Vihiga district, August 1, 2007)

“We have the same teacher who is teaching and supposed to do the counselling. So, while in theory we have counselling at schools, this is not sufficient; and we can say the counselling aspect is really lacking. The government trained one teacher [per school] in how to do the counselling.” (Teacher, Nyanza Province, Kisumu, August 1, 2007)

“There are parents who want us to beat them [the pupils], or they ask us to beat them in front of them with their permission.” (Head teacher, Western province, Kakamega district, August 2, 2007)

“Many parents here are insisting that kids must be disciplined. The parents come to the school and bring the child there and cane them in front of the teachers.” (Social worker, Western province, Kakamega district, August 2, 2007)

PNU seems to be planning something while playing with our children life's- what are this people in PNU up to?? something does not seem right and those comments from Karua and Ongeri confirms my suspicious!!!!!

Doctors fault Nyong’o over choice of board chief executives

Published on 28/07/2008

By Elizabeth Mwai

The Minister for Medical Services has come under criticism for appointing former chief officers to head boards that they formerly served under.

Members of the Pharmaceutical Society of Kenya, Kenya Pharmaceutical Distributors Association, Kenya Pharmaceutical Association and Kenya Treatment Access Network accused Prof Anyang’ Nyong’o of recycling retirees.

Dr Kipkerich Koskei has been appointed to the post of chief pharmacist and registrar to the Pharmacy and Poisons Board, while Dr Richard Muga, a former Director of Medical Services is to be in charge of the Kenya Medical Agency Supplies (Kemsa) board probe committee.

The associations said they were appalled by the decision made by Nyong’o, interpreting it as politically motivated.

The Kenya Pharmaceutical Distributors Association chairman, Dr Kamamia Murichu, said the appointment of Koskei, who was the former Chief Pharmacist and Registrar of the Pharmacy and Poisons Board, was not in the best interest of the industry.

"In this era of transparency such friendship should never be given a place to dictate the way appointments are going to be made. Nor should political affiliation and rewards be seen to play centre stage in the Civil Service," Murichu said.

He added: "The action by the minister is thus backward, retrogressive and not in the interest of advancing service delivery to Kenyans."

In an interview with The Standard, Murichu said while the minister had the authority to make changes, he must have the welfare of the profession at heart.

Murichu said Koskei was removed from his office five years ago when National Rainbow Coalition came into power, for failing to effectively implement the Kenya National Drug Policy, which was funded by World Bank to the tune of Sh5 billion.

Counterfeit medicines

Murichu said Muga used to sit in the Central Medical Stores and Kemsa boards in his former capacity as the Director of Medical Services.

He said both Muga and Koskei were sent packing because of alleged incompetence.

During Koskei’s tenure, Murichu said, there had been entry of substandard and counterfeit medicines and increase of quacks.

He said the stakeholders were concerned over the appointment of Koskei. They have petitioned Nyong’o to reconsider his decision.

The Kenya Treatment Access Network coordinator, James Kamau, said he was perturbed by the return of former officials and did not understand the rationale which the minister used to bring them back.

There was a big problem during his tenure and I do not think he can be able to fix the current problems," Kamau said.

He urged the minister to consult the civil societies and stakeholders in some of the key appointments so that the right person can get the job.

"There is no need for recycling people who had failed the system yet there are numerous people who can perform," they said in a statement.

Questions over hiring of lawyers at the Waki Commission

Published on 28/07/2008

By Beauttah Omanga

Questions are being raised over lawyers from private firms representing State agencies at the Waki Commission.

State counsel in the Attorney General’s office paid by taxpayers to do such jobs have been excluded.

The lawyers whose services have raised concern include Mr Evans Monari and Mr Muriuki Mugambi, who are appearing for the police, Mr Abdulahi Ahmednasir, Mr John Katiku and Mr Adan Mohammed for the NSIS and Mr Ajaa Olubayi for Prisons Department. The Army is represented by Brigadier Kenneth Dindi, who is the military’s head of legal services, and Captain Catherine Gichu.

Police Spokesman Eric Kiraithe defended the decision, saying it was made due to the heavy workload the police lawyers had.

"Our lawyers are handling numerous sensitive cases at the moment," said Kiraithe. He said the Waki Commission needed lawyers who would be available throughout its sessions and the private lawyers had undertaken to do that.

Former MP Paul Muite claimed that though the Government was entitled to services from private lawyers, some of those participating were hired due to political inclinations.

"Anyone hired to represent the Government must be impartial. Unfortunately, one of the lawyers representing the State was a PNU coordinator in the last General Election and he may not be impartial," said Muite, himself a lawyer.



BULLSHIT WHY SHOULD THE KENYAN TAX PAYER PAY FOR THIS LAWYERS?? The police budget is from kenyans tax payers-

let them tell kenyans what this lawyers are being paid ! it looks to me like another Goldwrnberg scam where Lawyers wakina Kamua and the rest were paid millions and millions of shillings every mouth-

kenyans wake up and stop this waste of our tax payers money.

Huh, are we really a generation ruined by deception and fraud? I think so. Deception from our so called leaders i couldn't help laughing at an article by Kwama in the standard newspaper on Saturday and Kwama said as the political elites keen on cycling leadership among themselves we dont have anyone to speak on our behalf. And i couldn't put it better than him he said "When we were still learning how to wipe our bottoms using leaves, some of these called leaders had people around them to wipe them" but now even after that they still want to rule over us and i wonder who next after Uhuru, will it be Jimmy or Fidel?
Maybe it is high time we rise and refuse to be deceived that leadership cannot come from anywhere else apart from the "Who is who in Kenya" We might just be missing the golden opportunity.

when i see Lawyers like Even Monari and Mugambi appearing for the police- then I sincerely feel sick to my stomach( money, greed and power) this is what i read- this were the lawyers few years ago i looked at as said we have good ethical young lawyers- but not anymore-

For kenya i now look for hope at the young youth- 17(just going to University)and 21 something the new faces out looking for jobs now- those are the hopes for Kenya they are vocal and have no fear - they want the truth and are tired of being sidelined-
this are the kenyans who will stop people like Evan Monari and the Greedy unethical crowd of lawyers and the moi and kibaki era of corrupt 30 something and 40 something who are still in the mainstream in the government. private sector e.t.c who grew up with saying or being asked kitu kidogo( chai) e.t.c

Kenyans have to change Kenya not one individual can stop corruption in kenya- just look at these lawyers?? i sincerely do not care- but being lawyers for the same police who went out to shoot kenyans - that too me is beneath anyone--i thought the police force had it's own lawyers?? are they incompetent?? or is it fear of what they did- made the police to hire tough lawyers like Evans Monari and co??? what are the police hiding and why is Evens Monari being paid top dollar to help them hide dirt??

Shame on Monari- he disgusts me- How desperate could he be?to accept to represent the police murderers like commissioner Ali and company??

KENYA is free for all- it is on a downward fall- and anyone who can make quick and easy money is making it.
look at the IDP's from all tribes they have been forgotten- every day they are promised money and support but it never arrives- the paper which is busy running the lies

is the Daily nation newspaper - even i noticed they were paid by the the PNU(police & army) to say Mt. Elgon is safe and running0 a little bird whispered that nation NTV paid some locals who staged an appearance claiming that the Army did well in Mt. Elgon and now ati it is safe there?? can you believe this shaite paper run by yours truly kibaki's goons??

Mt. Elgon massacres will not go away like the mungiki youth executions early in 2007 where more than 500 were executed - because the kikuyu's in central don't care about their own- and they can allow Kibaki to execute as many as he like- depending which mood he wakes up in-

This time he attacked the wrong tribes by sending the police ands army to slaughter them in mt. elgon in pretense that they were after the Saboat?? bull shiate

and now they have wakina Monari the lawyer protecting them??Police and army??
shame on these lawyers someone should deal with this lawyers scam of the earth accordingly- they are an embarrassment to other ethical lawyers in kenya.

Amnesty: Police release thousands
BY BERNARD MOMANYI and EVELYNE NJOROGE

NAIROBI, July 27 - It has now emerged that most of the suspects arrested during the post election violence have been released.

Many of the suspects who were mainly locked up in various police stations in the Rift Valley started arriving home last month.

On Sunday there were reports that a group of others were set free this July.

Although police maintain they have not released any of the suspects, reports from the Rift Valley Province indicate that many of the suspects are now free.

And leaders in the Province have already begun taking stock of those released to establish the number of those who may be in custody.

Chepalungu Member of Parliament (MP) Isaac Ruto told Capital News that he was aware of many suspects who had returned home from custody.

Scores of of them are suspects who were arrested for barricading roads, incitement, arson and participating in illegal assemblies.

"It is true many of the suspects whom we wanted released have already arrived home. They started arriving home last month," Ruto said.

He could not, however, state the exact number of those released so far.

Ruto said MPs and councillors have been commissioned to compile a list of those freed and identify suspects who are still missing.

They include young men who were arrested at the apex of the post election violence that claimed the lives of at least 1,500 people and displaced 350,000 others.

This violence that was reported in various parts of the country was only contained when former United Nations chief Kofi Annan successfully mediated a power sharing deal between President Mwai Kibaki and his then political rival Raila Odinga-now Prime Minister.

In an exclusive interview with Capital News on Sunday, Ruto was categorical that those released were more than the ones in custody.

"Many of them are at home, they have been released under unclear circumstances," he said and added that those set free do not even have documents showing if they had been bonded.

But when we contacted the Police Spokesman Erick Kiraithe, he dismissed the reports as ‘political propaganda’.

Contrary to his earlier admission that some suspects were in custody, he chose to change the position.

"Our position remains that we really did not have any young men in our police cells and therefore, we can not be releasing any suspects we do not have," he stated and said the matter was being dealt with by the Justice Philip Waki Commission of Inquiry.

Two months ago, there was a raging debate on whether or not the suspects should be granted amnesty.

Government Spokesman Dr Alfred Mutua had then announced that the government was compiling a list of those in custody.

The list was never made public, neither was the action that was to be taken once the exercise was completed.

The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNHCR) said it supported the release of the suspects ‘because they are petty offenders’.

The Commission’s Vice Chairman Hassan Omar Hassan told Capital News that those who committed capital offences were still behind bars.

"We have not heard of any release of people who committed crimes such as rape or murder," he said.

Hassan said the Attorney General’s office and the Justice Philip Waki Commission were faced with a tough balancing act to ensure that innocent people are not wrongly prosecuted.

"Kenyans need to have a little faith and hope that the (Waki) Commission will do a certain balance in terms of directing the course of investigations and recommending the right machinery to undertake these investigations," he added.

Most witnesses who have testified at the public inquiry said they were opposed to a blanket amnesty.

On Wednesday, the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) said it was opposed to the government granting amnesty to the suspects of post election violence.

"The reason why we are against amnesty is because it can lead to a culture of impunity," he said in his submission to the public inquiry.

The Chairman of Community Based Organisations (CBOs) Tom Aosa urged the police to expedite post election-related investigations to ensure justice prevails.

"If indeed the police have released some of the suspects, then it means they (police) have interrogated them and established their financiers. Let them now move with speed and arrest the people who supported the violence," he said in an interview with Capital News.

Chris,

Since am hearing rumours that this blog is about to go down, let me advice you.

You have advised me here in the past posting as anon so, please give me a moment to advice you too. You see, we learn from each other and we need each other.

To avoid this blog going to pot, why don't you redesign it into something exquisite where people will not take umbrage? - A place where people from all walks of life will find it useful and not faze out at the mention of Kumekucha.


You know all too well most of the posts here are canard and the comments that follows are equally are preposterous.
I think your whole venture of this blog has been an unmitigated disaster with few if any nebulous ideas. But, I have an idea for you and don't rubbish it; I think it would be worthy heeding to it than watch your dream waste away.


There are whole wide range panoply of how you can re-invent yourself in the worldwide web.
I know an old callow schoolmate who ventured into this kind of business. It started like a joke with all only few plebs blogging in a week.
He went on to commentate on issues that affects men and men's heath – things that men find difficult to talk about. He started offering free advice online and before he knows it, his blog was receiving 5 millions hits a day. Today this very ordinary bloke has received praises from both political leaders and in medical profession for his efforts. Recently he received an award from British Medical Journal for his effort in educating men about prostate cancer. The man is not even a doctor, he did computers but he just wanted to do something positive.

This is what I am talking about, do something that will benefit people and leave a legacy for your name.

Kwale,

To someone new to Kumekucha, your comment may pass for what it appears to be-advice from one friend to another. However, one can feel the tinge of sarcasm.

I see you followed some tips I gave you a few days ago.
Congratulations, this is the most decent (free of abusive language) comment I have ever read from you.

By the way this is not Chris.

Taabu said...

Motivation is only useful if you have the wherewithal to internalize and conceptualize the tents on it is premised. Mere grandstanding and copy-cut-pasting is cheap scholarship. Otherwise ventures galore on how to divert attention most of which are so thinly veiled. For now we are dissecting the schools unrest and no amount of pedestrian advice on prostrate cancer from quacks is relevant. Nice try though albeit misplaced and apt case of deception in disguise, indulge.

Kwale said...

Anon 4:51… why are you people always fidgety. You always think negative even why someone is offering you a donkey to ride on instead of having to walk you still think is sarcasm. Here I am giving Chris the best possible advice one can get FREE of charge and you still thinks it iffy. I don’t know.


And for your information that comment was NOT entirely free of 'abusive language' I have used few of those words you don't like there;

Plebs - a person of a low social class

Callow - describes someone, especially a young person, who behaves in a way that shows a lack of experience, confidence or judgment

As a matter of fact they call him 'Scottish miserable old git' why? because he keep talking about things that happened in Scotland long time ago.

Just take a moment and think about some of the 'insulting language' am talking about. Forget about the UK slang and imagine you are addressing some 'plebs in shags'

If I remember correctly, aren't you the one who asked Chris if he had shagged Lucy? Of course you knew what he meant by 'slapper'.

Who has been referring to others as 'silly little twerps/twirps and twits'?

On a separate note, what is it about Raila's politics that you hate so much?

Peace.

Anon 7.54 aka Chris

You are barmy and that's why you're using anon to disguise yourself! By the way barmy means crazy.

I honestly thought Chris meant that when he used the word 'slapper'. I have never heard that word before used in any other way other than --- ! ..and that's why I came soo hard on chris. He had my respect and I could not believe he can use that word. I would love to tell you why that word slapper is used to refer to women... but because this is a family blog and there are many under 16s here, so I leave it.

There is absolutely nothing wrong by referring someone as 'silly little twerp' nothing at all. And that's why you have that word 'little' there to make it cool.

As for your last question "what is it about Raila's politics that you hate so much?"

I am for the people, and I mean all people, you may have noticed from my comments I genuinely care about ordinary people. You may also want to note, I have never lost any on my tribesman or woman through political violence but I cannot stand to see innocent people being demonized and harassed because of their ethnicity. I believe if you have any aggrieved matter there is a civilized way to settle them BUT NOT through violence. I remember during the height of post election towards the end of last year, Raila Mollasses did not condemn the violence. He did not even appeal to his supporters to stop attacking innocent people and thus I hold him responsible for the innocent people burnt alive in a church.
Even to this date, I find it very hard to believe that some people went on killing rampage chopping innocent people with machete because of Raila. Honestly I cannot get my head around that.

PS as for the word 'shag' - it is very informal word so please refrain from using it.

How can you hold Raila responsible for Eldoret burning when all Kenyans know the facts are Kibaki send Mungiki to burn his own tribesmen in the Eldoret church- so as to gain sympathy from foolish people like you - you Moran- i can't believe you are still at it on here?

why are no not condoning KIBAKI TOO for executing more than 500 mungiki youth and more than 1500 still missing - i bet the wild animals in Ngong forest already feasted on their flesh-

now look at mt Elgon army are going to be taken to the UN human rights tribunal for crimes against humanity thy went on a killing spree and who is their commander in chief??

the murderer Emilio kibaki yet again.

KIBAKI NEEDS TO BE GIVEN THE SAME TREATMENT HE HAS GIVEN TO MORE THAN 5,000 KENYANS DEAD AT HIS HANDS- HE ORDERED THE POLICE AND ARMY TO SHOOT TO KILL, TORTURE SOME TO DEATH AND HELP FUND THE MUNGIKI THAT COMMITTED GENOCIDE IN NAKURU, NAIVASHA AND THE BURNING THE ONE S IN THE ELDORET CHURCH- JUST TO STAY IN POWER..

Kwale,

The violence caught everyone by surprise and may I remind you that it was not a preserve of the ODM supporters. Is the state house visit by Mungiki and the killing of ODM supporters justified? Why didn't your god Kibz condemn their actions? (hey you always make reference to Raila as our god).

Raila did not blow a whistle to start the violence. May I also remind you that in Kisumu it all started as looting but when the shoot to kill orders came, don't you think it was a normal human reaction to fight back? I'm not in any way saying this was the way to go, but what should they have done?
Turn their behinds and ask for more?

I'm sure you will agree that emotions were clearly heightened by factors completely outside Raila's control. Did you watch the behavior of Kivuitu and his team at KICC, the declaration of Kibaki as the winner and then the hurried swearing in ceremony, despite the obvious anomalies...c'mon be honest.

You shouldn't have got me started...we are on a diffrent chapter and everyone should be moving on. I'm curiuos to know, did you hold the same views about Raila in 2003 after the tosha declaration?

Why makes you think this is Chris?
Without revealing my name, all I can is that am a Kenyan lady in the US.

You must be really enjoying the show and the limelight you have created for yourself. But a honest look at your post will disabuse you of the false pride and instead expose you complex you suffer. You are smarting from a misplaced sense of entitlement that inflates your ego when you convince yourself with array of langs.

FYI Kenyan's outgrow that complex after teenage age group. But with your pride singular prefaced with you address you must be excited with the AUTO EROTIC antic from within. Those conversant with London know what calibre of people are slang-prone. I hope one of the PP is not her Majesty's lest she changes her mind owing to you being such a disgrace. And while at it you are NOT legally Kenyan-no 2 PPs. Indulge and spare us the juvenile verbiage.

I thought we had moved on from the post election violence and were now resetting IDPs or granting amnesty to murderers, rapists, arsonists a.k.a. ODM 'democratic'freedom fighters?

OK let's talk about post election violence. Begin with all the hate preached by Raila Molasses and pentagon team of thugs, then move on to all the hacking, murdering, burning, raping that their goons conducted, and whom they paid to do the good job. There was nothing spontaneous and numerous reports have captured that. It was all well and nicely planned.

We have dossiers you know, and unlike you we are very patient and dont go screaming around what we know and what we plan to do. Be knowing.
