In as much as the UN is the reigning international authority on world peace, I do not agree with its arms embargo on Southern Sudan. Having been murdered and enslaved by the Khartoum government, the black brothers of the south must defend themselves somehow. It is for this reason that I support Kibaki’s clandestine support for the South.
Dr. Alfred Mutua is telling us that the tanks were destined for Kenya. Our own DOD, US and other investigative agencies are telling us that the arms were enroute to Southern Sudan. Whom do you believe? ….that’s a rhetorical question.
That said, we have also been told that these shipments of tanks and guns have been going on prior to the elections…..meaning ODM was in the dark.
Given the ingrained culture of obtuse corruption in the pre-election Kibaki administration, is it plausible to suggest that the Southern Sudanese paid Kibaki some kickback cash to allow the transit of weapons?
Could this be the reason why Kibaki insisted on holding on to power no matter what? You see, subverting a UN arms embargo is a case for The Hague….. which could result in lengthy jail terms. Was he afraid that without the power of the presidency, he could be exposed as an arms dealer of some sought?
