No Ugali, Why Don't The People Eat Chapati?

Also published in the last few hours: Defeated Ruto Censure motion saved lives by Taabu


Final Warning: A Bloody Revolution Is Coming

Yesterday President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga sat visibly uncomfortable as they received a well-deserved dressing down from religious leaders from virtually all faiths united in their view that the trio has failed Kenyans. Even more telling were the wild cheers the clergymen received from the crowds.

Indeed many of the points they put forward will be extremely familiar to Kumekucha readers but the bottom line is that the principals have remained tribal chiefs who just wanted the big seat and have failed to provide leadership for the country and to unite all Kenyans at a very crucial time. They have no business leading a cattle dip, let alone a whole nation.
Read The Full story of what happened.

Personally what I find to be the saddest thing of all in Kenya today is that many leaders and indeed other Kenyans who live a comfortable life have failed completely to see where we are headed. Too many Kenyans are asking the question that shows they have no clue; if there is no ugali, why don't the people eat chapati, after all it is now cheaper? In other words they have failed completely to understand the masses and what is really going on now as you read this that can only end in one thing--bloody chaos.

--------------------------------
Do you suspect your spouse is cheati9ng on you? Well, you can easily find out for sure by recovering deleted sms messages on their cell phones. Hehehehehehehe.
--------------------------------

This was very well illustrated here last week when I gave a my predictions for the future based on careful analysis (and not witchcraft as some commentators believe). My predictions were greeted with anger, especially the one about a coming bloody uprising by the hungry masses. Folks just couldn't stomach that. Not after the bloody post-war chaos that we are yet to recover from.

Ladies and gentlemen let us not be the proverbial ostrich that buries it's head in sand and ignores the rapidly approaching forest fire, believing that if they cannot see it then it does not exist.

Actually since I made those predictions numerous other political analysts have concurred including Mutahi Ngunyi on an interview aired on national TV and in his Sunday Nation column. So I think we have reached that place where it is important to understand why all these sane people are talking war.

Since I penned the controversial words in my prediction, the situation has in fact badly deteriorated. One of the ways that we would have been able to avoid violence was if the 10th parliament had continued on the same path and in the same spirit they had in rejecting the constitutional amendment bill to create a local tribunal. That spirit was perfect because it echoed the feelings of the people on the ground. That would have easily saved the situation. However in defeating the Ruto censure motion, the current parliament showed it's true colours and alienated itself from the people. Even as you read this interest in the live parliamentary broadcasts is waning rapidly. And sadly so because some interesting things happened in the house yesterday (parliament failed to pass the list of new interim electoral commissioners simply because somebody whispered that the chairman is a wife-batterer).

In other words because parliament has failed to articulate the true feelings on the ground, the people will be left with no other option. And get me right, not that anybody will plan it it will all be spontaneous. And don't call me an inciter because the real inciters are parliament and our leaders.

Sample this; in replying to the very genuine points of constructive criticism brought against the grand coalition government President Kibaki jeered at them and told them to stop acting holier than thou because everybody is to blame. Kalonzo Musyoka repeated the same sentiments quoting a verse from the Bible out of context that says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. What does that tell you? It is clear that Kibaki and Raila will do nothing. It will be business as usual (wacha wale wanataka kupayuka wapayuke). So what do you sincerely expect?

Please tell me what we should do? A commentator here yesterday criticized me for not offering solutions. How can you offer solutions when people are in denial and are saying that actually there is no problem. What problem will your solution be designed to address?

Ohhh and I almost forgot. The staple Maize flour that so many Kenyans rely on for food is already selling for as much as Kshs 90 per 2 kilogram packet (Kshs 120 in some places), however it seems that Kenyans ain't seen nothing yet because prices are set to rise yet again. Read the reason why here.

Wewe Chris!

What do you mean someone simply whispered the chairman is a wife batterer! That KIvuitu was also cruel to his wife if I remember correctly you can see where that type of character led us! I would never support a wife batterer, Millie Odhiambo was right to raise that point, that is a big blot on his character. (Let it be a lesson to men, when they beat their wives at home, they will not be selected for public service jobs, we dont want such characters!)

Anyway, was that really the main issue? I thought I read the man was not on the shortlist of top contenders provided by Manpower Selection Services, he only appeared there afterwards and parliamentarians are questioning under what circumstances his name was brought in to overtake the top dogs.

I also understand ODM people were not happy given his closeness to the PNU party...maybe someone knew what they was talking about yesterday on this very blog when they said the man said 'it was their time to eat' in the office......politics, politics, politics!

Chapo vs Ugali: Do people really expect working Kenyans after walking in the hot Industrial area sun the whole day looking for jobs and what not, wafike home then start kneading dough for chapo? When will they sleep?

Mama said...

By the way, was so happy to hear the religious leaders dressing down these people (not that they are any better) but I have to tell you, that was the highlight of my news watching.

What Kenya needs is sophisticated large scale commercial farming on idle arable land by forcing the owners to rent it out to displaced Zim jungu farmers. Many Zim jungu farmers are already renting land in Zambia, Mozambique, and Nigeria so I don't see why we shouldn't invite them over.

Although we can't depend on poorly educated Kenyan peasants to feed our country, we can't abandon them because they're our brothers and sisters. So need to sambaza them with extension services, drip irrigation, boreholes, subsidised inputs, good roads, good producer prices, and most importantly, vasectomies and tubal ligations.

Chris and Mutahi Ngunyi need to stop inciting people to violence so that investors can be able to pour money into sophisticated large scale commercial farming instead of just building malls in the safer parts of Nairobi.

I don't buy maize flour because I hate ugali but I've been following the prices in the news. By the way, how much is wheat flour? I just put it in the trolley when my wife sends me to the shops and I never bother to check how much it costs.

Our comment:

If we read correctly from our newspapers, it was reported that the name of this guy was not on the final list. If that is the case, wouldn't be better first to inquire how he ended up being chosen/selected?

Also, it was also reported that, Dr Koki Muli was not chosen/selected because she is a Kamba, and the former ECK chairman is a Kamba. Surely, don't you think this is an issue you should have raised?

We also think that, being a lawyer is not sufficient to make one qualified to head such a body as such. The truth is this, it is not more lawyers we need in such bodies.

We need first and foremost, real MEN and WOMEN. What do we mean? We suggest that, to head such a body, one ought to be a person who has shown first and foremost, fearless commitment to public interest and welfare.

We have grave doubts whether Mr Miller has shown that kind of attitude. He may have made money as an advocate, and therefore succeeded in the way we measure the success of advocates. However, we hold the opinion that, this kind of success is not what we need. Kenya does not need more rich men and women; it needs people who are real MEN and WOMEN before they are advocates or whatever they are.

The best thing that God can do to Kenya is to send a calamity that would wipe out Kibaki and Raila and all the other MPS from the face of Kenya.

We ordinary folks needs to sit down a chart the future of our beloved country without the 222 MPs.

Those whos still hing their loyalties to PNU, ODM or whatever other names the parties are called, and their tribes should know that time to change ways is now. We must all reason together or perish together.

For sure just like the French revolution of the 1789 Kenya is headed towards lean times.Those who disagree then tell us why some parts of central province, Nairobi,Nakuru,Eldoret and Kisii have become inhabitable to some sections of the population unless they subscribe to the local mafia.
The anti-Kikuyu platform that is currently unifying MPS will soon crumble as the MPS face more rebellion at the constituency level.
Sooner than later food riots will occur in Nairobi,Kisumu,Nakuru and Mombasa.Those who keep steadfast in the war against corruption will gain popularity.
The government is expected to counter the demonstration with police brutality.The resilient of some of the members will create a core group that will be pivotal to move the revolution forward.
As a socialist the failure of capitalist policies in Kenya give us a chance to advocate for a more people friendly government.A people's revolution is the only way to scatter the current political class.We need leaders who are servants.Leaders who have worked for whatever little they own.Men and women proud of the little they have accumulated through hard work.People who can advocate for the local industries.People who are willing to industrialise the country.A leadership that will be ready to take painful decision for the benefit of the future generation.We have allowed our country and continent be a dumping group for secondhand goods from the rest of the world.We continue to spend millions in buying clothes from yester-third world countries instead of building our own!A change is desirable at this point in time!
The food crises has only accelerated the timing of an idea whose time has come!

"Chriso",
Dr.Kibaki's sentiments yesterday expressed the true feelings so called "educated" Kenyans have towards religion and God in this country and the fall of religion from grace to grass in the eyes of kenyans

the feeling was...how dare the church open their mouth to criticise anything when they have been caught with their pants down too many times in the past before? indeed Dr.Kibaki was holding them hostage yesterday when he told them to shut up because they are not innocent either-weren't women and children burnt alive in a so called "church" looking for refuge?
get back your moral authority first church before you open up your mouth to speak-a blind man cannot lecture other blind men

It is amazing how so many of you have missed the whole point of my quote about chapatis.

Pls read this again; Too many Kenyans are asking the question that shows they have no clue; if there is no ugali, why don't the people eat chapati, after all it is now cheaper?

Naturally I have "borrowed" it from the famous French Revolution quote where the queen asked why the people were rioting over bread when they could eat cake.

It seems we have many queens in Kenya at the moment and that will just speed up the trouble... NO?

Phil said...

Chris when you say ".....(parliament failed to pass the list of new interim electoral commissioners simply because somebody whispered that the chairman is a wife-batterer)...." your only but failing the readership of this blog. We expect you to investigate this inssue and give us facts behind the rejection. We are not interested in the parliamentary politics behind the rejection. I have said it before and I will keep saying it. Lets discuss issues that will take us forward and not backwards. Obviously, Chris you rely on mainstream press and perhaps local gossip with your newspaper vendor to spin propaganda at Kumekucha.

Chris a few facts for you and the rest of the ill-informed regarding the rejection Cecil Guyana Miller as IIEC boss:

1. Cecil and Parliamentary Select Committee Chair one AbdiKadir are bossom buddies and former classmates from the UoN. I guess you can see why the Chair has taken shortcuts and has been pushing for his appointment merely because Cecil holds a masters in LAW. Do we really need a masters holder to ensure free and fair elections?

2. Cecil himself was not in the original shortlist of candidates by HR firm Manpower Services Kenya Ltd. Cecil's name was sneaked in on the day of the final interviews.. This is the same day apparently he 'borrowed' a copy of the ACT and for the first time read the amendment act that established the IIEC. As we all know, he was interviewed for just 10 minutes and passed by flying colours.Surprised? Not if you know who recommended his name!

3. The apparent favour Cecil is not coincidental. Cecil's name was put forward by one Uhuru Kenyatta, also a member of the PSC and an interested party in the Kibaki succession and the 2012 elections. Uhuru also took time to prevail over the usual PNU culprits in the PSC committee and it is not surprising that Cecil passed his interview in less than 10 minutes!

3. Cecil Miller was an Assisting Counsel in the KRIEGLER Commission that recommended the dissolution of the Kivuitu led ECK. He is now conveniently being propped up as Chairman of the interim electoral body despite the fact there is an obvious conflict of interest. One cannot recommend the dissolution of a public institution and then rush to be appointed as a leader of the same establishment. It violates the public officers and ethics act, as well as the Public Procurement act. Besides it is immoral.

4. Given the gravity of the failure of the last elections and the fact that IIEC Chairperson must be seen to be beyond partisan politics, Cecil was a prominent member of the Kibaki Tena think tank in 2007 and was an attendee of the Kshs. 1 million per plate dinner at Safari Park. Would it be acceptable if ODM came up with the name of one Justice (rtd) Kwach to be Chairman of IIEC, and would it be acceptable to the other side?

5. Manpower Services Kenya ltd that conducted the headhunting for the IIEC on behalf of the PSC is a firm owned by another Kibaki Tena operative, one Simon Muthiora. The number of government contracts he has benefited from has uplifted his company to the point he is known to be ready to offer PNU free profressional services. However for this job, we are yet to know how much the Kenya National Assembly is paying MSKL. Additionally, Simon's brother one Joseph Muthiora served as an investgator for the Kriegler Commission that recommended the disolution of the ECK. Is it in order that everyone who worked for Kriegler (whose job of investigating the bungled elections was a miserable failure) is also a Kibaki Tena operative, and also the same characters who want to manipulate the IIEC??? Do you people think ODM is that stupid.

And to imagine some deranged MPs are rating this Cecil fellow above Maina Kiai and Koki Muli is just beyond me. Why do we want to poison the work of the IIEC even before it has started? What is Uhuru Kenyatta's interest in all this?

The fact that young Cecil just like is own old man is unable to keep his zippers up and that he is a wife batterer is besides the point. We care less how many women one beds or how many bastard children one sires outside marriage or even how many women one gives a black eye : before seeking public office. But for the sake of free, fair and transparent general elections: GET A NEUTRAL KENYAN TO BE IIEC CHAIRPERSON.

Personally I am torn between Koki Muli and Maina Kiai.

For once Chris, give us a deep and neutral analysis of events. Not you pesa mbili politics of bashing Raila or Kibaki. That does not take away the problems of those starved Kenyans you purport to talk on behalf of. Puuuleeassssse!!

Chris said...

By the way I am sorry that I came across as supporting a man who beats women. Nothing can be further from the truth and that is not what I meant to say in my post.

I am the kind of man who does not support violence but when I see women being harassed, let alone beaten, I see red and then regret my actions later. I just can't stomach it. And no sane man should.

Kudos to those ladies who put their feet down.

Of course I smell a rat in the appointment of Miller and he has got so many other shortcomings when compared to his competitors. However beating his wife in my mind just cancels him from even being a member of a committe running a cattle dip in the village. Such a man is not fit to be even the prefect of a primary school standard one class PERIOD.

Phil, Miller did not go to UON. He is not of that class. Guys of his class (like uhuru) go to universities in europe and north america.

About the IIEC chair, we should import. Not that an import can not be compromised but at least we will not talk about the person's tribe. I sense tribe is in the centre of this. Miller is half kikuyu and associates with kikuyus. Maina is, well, a kikuyu. Koki is a kamba like kivuitu. if you appoint a luo or a kalee you know damn well the guy will answer to rao or ruto.

My comments:

The reason why small scale coffee, tea, and horticultural farmers are relatively successful compared to maize farmers is because the producer prices per kg are relatively good compared to maize farming. This is because the consumers of coffee, tea, and horticultural products, e.g me, are much wealthier than those of maize.

You said:

You are completely brainwashed. Have you ever bothered to read on the efficiency of these big farms?

My comments:

If small scale maize farming is so great, then why do we have some of the lousiest yields in the world? Please google for world maize production and then click on I'm Feeling Lucky coz this blog truncates long URLs so I can't post the link here.

Your comments:

As concerns malls, we think that, this is not Kenya needs. It needs investment in productive sectors of the economy.

My comments:

We definitely need malls. Where will my wife and I shop and have a decent latte? The fact is that after what happened in Jan and Feb '08, people will only pour billions in the non-slum areas of Nairobi.

You said:

And, more importantly, why can't Kenyans invest themselves? Why must they wait for the so called magical foreign investors?

My comments:

Foreign investment is necessary for cutting-edge skills transfer. Without foreigners, Kenyans wouldn't have acquired the cutting-edge skills necessary to build mobile networks in Madagascar, Chad, and DRC! That doesn't mean that we shouldn't encourage domestic investors coz money is money.

We need to look at the countries that have high maize yields despite lousy weather and then rent out idle land to them. Then locals will learn from them and start their own high-yield maize farms.

You said:

Lastly, have you invested yourself?

My comments:

I've invested heavily in the non-slum areas of Nairobi and Jo'burg to avoid the haki yetu nonsense that prevails in the other parts of Kenya and SA.

Views of Patriotic Australian Prime Minister

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd - Australia
==============
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.


Separately, Kevin angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: 'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. '


'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'


'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'


'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'

'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'

'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'


'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'

We should stop complaining and just watch!. These religious guys don't understand this. The dressing down of Kibaki and Raila was all over the dailys headlines.

My comments:

I invested in SA coz the rand is less than 8/- which means they now have much cheaper real estate than Nbi. Also, it's not good to put all your eggs in one country like the Zim jungu farmers did. As for SA crime, I've lived there for a while and the only crime I suffered was loosing a cheap phone to a pickpocket.

You said:

(b) You seem to have a pathological fear of slums. We would like to know whether, with your attitude, you are part of the solution, or part of the problem.

My comments:

Gava should buy thousands of acres in the outskirts of Nbi and other towns. It should then force all slum dwellers to open bank accounts with low-cost banks like Equity. The banks would use the monthly cash flow track record for an account to determine how much mortgage the slum dweller is entitled to. The mortgages would be funded by a housing treasury bond.

Providers of low-cost but decent housing solutions like Habitat for Humanity would assist the slum dweller build a house based on the mortgage that he qualifies for. The slum dweller and his kids would provide free labour in order to reduce costs. Please google for "For low income earners, affordable housing" (don't forget the quotes).

The former slum dweller would make monthly, weekly, or daily mortgage repayments which the bank would use to repay gava. Gava would then repay the bondholders. Gave would control the interest rate charged by the bank to avoid consumer exploitation but also assist them to ruthlessly foreclose where necessary.

The former slum dwellers would live far from their workplaces in inda so their employers would be forced to give them return matatu fare daily (ha ha).

You said:

As concerns nations that have high maize yields, just look at Malawi. It offers a nice example. And, who are the farmers in Malawi? They are the people you dismiss as poorly educated peasants.

My comments:

Malawi's maize yields are actually lower than ours (1.23 MT/ha vs 1.53 MT/ha). Please google for world maize production and click on I'm Feeling Lucky. It's also 20.68% arable compared to 8% for Kenya (see CIA World Factbook). That's not a maize farming role model for Kenya. The maize farming role model for Kenya is a desert country like Egypt with yields of 7.71 MT/ha despite having 2.92% arable land. Those are the people we need to rent out idle land (private and public, arable and arid) to.

You said:

At the end of it, we admire HIGH THINKING. SIMPLE LIVING. Thats why, we do not think malls and such stuff is what Kenyans need.

My comments:

When or not Kenyans need malls should be decided by the private sector, not gava. Gava should only be concerned with essential public services.

On the Cecil Miller note (yesterday), I wrote on how he mistreats his employees. Someone here came after me calling me a tribalist. Men....I don't care, I have dealt with people from all major tribes in Kenya for me to know who are genuine and who are not.

Now, its apparent that the guy is a woman beater! he he, just goes ahead to strengthen my point.

I also said the guy wines and dines with people from a certain part of this country and that is where he cuts his deals for work as an advocate. Its clear where his allegiance will be.

He is not the right candidate considering he was fronted by Muigai Kenyatta.

First, I gave up on party politics in Kenya and truely does not think the politicians we have will ever deliver this nation to the promised land. But I was watching in disbelief as the name of Cecil Miller was being sneaked into the electoral process. The guy has no qualifications to match people like Dr Koki or Maina Kiai.

The choice of Cecil Miller will just ensure that violence breaks out again over elections since he will not be impartial given his political leanings. i also think that a man who makes employees work 7 days a week and underpays them, is extremely abusive of employees at his highly successful law firm and prone to temper tantrums should not hold public office.Besides why didnt the PSC give equal treatment to all candidates and let the best candidate win?

Kenyans should be very careful when it comes to issues to do with elections to ensure that the country does not go into civil war

Turns out that Raila secretly signed a letter of appointment that effectively makes him a Kibaki surbordinate. So much for the equality in power sharing mantra, that arrangement just didn't exist after all.
The interesting thing is that since the signing of the NARA, Raila chose to keep up the illusion of equality in a bid to 'bumbuwaza' his fanatical supporters. Why didn't he just tell them the truth, that he is only an adviser, and a glorified one at that complete with a motorcade? Answer: Kibaki took Raila to the mountaintop and behold, he showed him the city of gold and all the fabulous riches that lay before him. All he had to do was sign on the dotted line.
As he signed the appointment letter complete with gagging orders, all Raila could see were the million dollar signs!

We told anyone who cared to listen that Raila was just a con and a fake, but his supporters refused to hear any of it. Now, 24 hours since the news came out, NOT EVEN Raila has come out to deny the letter, as his supporters wallow in stunned silence wondering what hit them and how they were so easily deceived.

As the chinese saying goes 'be careful what you wish for, you just might get it'. Hilarious? Absolutely!!

you do raise some good points. i think its a matter of perception, is the glass half full or is it half empty?

it totally depends on where you stand and in the circumstances under study. it applies equally both ways (to the principals in this case)

UrXInc, stop trying to obfuscate the facts. Raila is just a glorified spanner boy after all, nothing more, nothing less.
You would think and expect that by now, the usually quick draw Orengo and Nyong'o would be furiously denying the story.
A popular yarn by Raila supporters going round is that the DN story about the existence of an appointment letter is the work of the NSIS. Well, any self respecting supporter would say that, wouldn't he?
