It’s Ruto… No It’s Kulei. Oops Or Is It Ruto?

It has never happened before and I was totally shocked. Usually this informant gives me A1 information in terms of reliability. In fact the problem with most of the info they give me is that it is too hot to use (sometimes even in my raw notes). But this time round they came back a few days after telling me Ruto was the Visa ban minister to tell me that it was NOT Ruto after all. The name they gave me confused me.

The US envoy had said that the banned person was a senior member of government. The last time I checked Joshua Kulei was NOT a member of the Kibaki administration. My source however assured me that Ruto was next on the dreaded list and as a matter of fact it is highly unlikely that he could ever be granted a visa incase he wants to travel to the United States.

So I made a decision to keep quiet until something happens. Well it happened last night when the Americans told us that the banned person they were referring to was in fact Kulei. Now this is really fascinating stuff because Mr Kulei is a very major investor in the American economy. In fact his entire family is currently based in the United States and his main business operations are in New York ( a place where many wealthy Americans cannot afford to operate from). See this Kumekucha article for details. And by the way according to the kroll report, guess how most of the corrupt and laundered funds have always been transferred out of Kenya? It has mainly been through Citi Bank (An American bank). Anyway that is a story for another day.

Now for the sake of those Kenyans to whom the Americans are blue-eyed boy-scouts who can do no wrong, let me inform you that these guys are masters of the use and dump “toilet paper syndrome.” They use and dump people at dizzying speeds. If one Mobuto Sese Seko, former president of the then Zaire (now democratic republic of Congo) could rise from the dead today, he would tell you a tale to remember. The Americans propped him up in the 60s at a time when he was hardly able to tie his own shoe laces and nurtured and grew him into the monster of a dictator that he became. The main casualty of this American move was one Patrice Lumumba (democratically elected Prime minister) whom the Americans helped assassinate in a most heinous manner. The man’s body was dismembered and burnt so that no trace of him was left save for his upper teeth proudly kept as a momento by some Belgian weirdo soldier who took part in the “operation.” The Americans then abandoned Mobutu at his hour of need and proceeded to heavily back an assault that removed him from power.

Back home, the Americans eagerly supported Mwai Kibaki for a second term and the World Bank was dishing out Aid money to the government as late as in December 2007, months before the general elections. Word in Washington was that Kibaki was going to be re-elected. Quite odd when on the ground he was losing by a landslide. You will remember that the American government was a wee too quick in congratulating Kibaki on his re-election hours after a pre-recorded night swearing-in at State House Nairobi. Even when they were well aware of an exit poll by an American set-up clearly showing that Raila Odinga won the presidential elections. Days later it was the same Americans threatening President Kibaki back into line and into accepting the ridiculous idea of a coalition government that would incorporate all major competitors in the presidential race.

So what is the latest American game in Kenya with these visa ban announcements?

Joshua Kulei has very close links with Prime Minister Raila Odinga. Everybody knows that the Mois are majority shareholders in the Standard group and that is why many were puzzled at the extremely favorable coverage Raila has always gotten from the Standard newspaper which at one time was almost an ODM newsletter. All that was courtesy of Kulei who was sure that Raila would win the presidency and wanted to warm himself to him to stay away from prison (a place he knows only too well after decades as a prison warden before his meteoric and overnight rise to wealth began).

What is in fact happening is that the Americans are practicing what I call “scare diplomacy”. It seems that some important Kenyan government officials have to be “scared into line” so that they play ball when the Americans present a petition for something they want very soon. It is as simple as that.

Hawa wewe Obama? OUCH!!!

The Americans stand accused for allowing Kulei into their country with funds whose source they knew very well. They in effect helped this man rape the Kenyan people. Uncle Sam held the legs apart as the heinous crime was committed.

Dear Chris,

It's quite embarassing that after all your hollabaloo about Ruto and Visa ban....allegations you made courtesy of your ALWAYS ACCURATE INFORMERS...you now sneak back to KK and tell us...sorry, it was Kulei and my informants somehow confused the two names SINCE THEY LOOK THE SAME. Talk of DECEIT, FRAUD and MISCHIEF all concorted into a RELIABLE STORY. I think Chris like someone said yesterday, you are running out of ideas and KK has reverted back to the GUTTER PRESS it always is reporting only 10 bob worth RUMOURS.

Stop insulting the intelligence of your audience like your moronic friend and Raila worshipper Okello.

Chris,

Leave rumours to women or change your otherwise polarised site to 'You Missed This Rumour'...otherwise your RAW NOTES TRASH collected from IMAGINARY INFORMERS are only a means of making blood money by selling our email addresses to Nigerian Scam artists.

Chris,

It is great that you finally let it be known that Raila's preidential campaign was financed by thugs and national rapists. If he had won, he was to constitute a govt of thugs, by thugs, and for thugs. Thanks God for small mercies, he did not win the elections. No wonder the ODM side of the govt is populated by the Ntimamas, the Betts, and Rutos of this world.

For Kenya, the Beautiful Ones are not Yet Born. I hope there will still be a Kenya when they are finally born.

It's not about hating. Chris wrote authoritatively like his source was the guy who signed the ban. Even the title of the post says even now he doesnt know what he is writing because Kulei had been banned earlier with Gideon Moi.

Andruid said...

Something doesn't add up Mr Kucha. If the EA Standard is Mzee's tissue paper and was singing Mr Odinga's praises to the high heavens why did Mzee then endorse Kibaki?

Back to the issue. Is it likely nobody in Kenya but Rannenberger knows who's been banned or that even worse, the whole thing is a pile of bull faeces meant to draw attention away from some other issue of American interest in Kenya?

This is just pathetic. And to make it even worse, you claim that Raila has close ties to Kulei. I must have been very stupid to contemplate subscribing for the so called raw notes. Thankfully I woke up from my slumber. Get a life please.

deroo said...

Remember this...FACT????

That Kulei is to be banned from visiting the USA is twaddle. Being banned from the States is as good as Kibaki not setting a foot in Nyanza, so, it makes no difference. Not at all! The painful thing is that USA, a SUPERPOWER can concentrate its efforts on a minute thing like Kulei. Kulei, so small compared to Saddam Hussein and

To the people doubting that he is a Raila Odinga man, please go to www.eastafricanpress.net and trawl entire website for the story about Kulei and the Standard factor. And the rest wondering why Standard gave Raila coverage, they should know that without writing the ODM stuff, the paper was as good as dead.

Raila ni biashara, na Standard ilikuwa katika soko ya muda. Anyway, they did well and without ODM coverage, it was going pear-shaped.

Interesting, the Kenyan press has not picked the story that Chris Murungaru lost his case over the visa ban in London with costs, that run into the millions. It is now running late. Anybody interested in the bit?????

What is this silly fascination with an exit poll that was hidden under the carpet for months? Exit polls are supposed to be released before an election concludes, an exit poll that was released prior to that contradicts the doctored poll that was being released 6 months late.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exit_poll

Perhaps those crowing at the top of their voices and vigourously exercising figments of their imagination need to be reminded of the following said about an exit poll that was released in a timely fashion and not hidden for months of tweaking and doctoring. It has not been forgotten that the same proponents of the so called 1 year late exit poll themselves said their data has been skewed:

An early exit poll gave Kenya's President Mwai Kibaki a narrow lead in Thursday's vote, praised by observers as a smooth exercise despite delays, sporadic violence and rigging charges from both sides.

But an aide for Odinga, who led pre-vote opinion polls, dismissed the IED: "People, especially in rural areas, are not keen to say how they have voted because they fear the power of the state," Salim Lone said.

http://www.reuters.com/article/worldNews/idUSL277107920071227

This is what IRI had to say in February 2008 before they rushed to the jiko to cook some figures. Indeed how does compromised data suddenly become uncompromised?:

“IRI conducted an exit poll in conjunction with Kenya’s December 27, 2007 elections. Release of the poll was initially delayed due to incomplete data. Once all the data was received and a review of the poll was conducted, serious issues were raised.

“Issues that have arisen include:

Concern over the possibility of compromised questionnaires due to the unrest following the elections and the significant delay in data being returned to Nairobi as a result;

Significant problems with duplicate and non-sequential numbering of questionnaires during the coding process which indicates possible missing questionnaires or duplicate data-entry of results;

In the full sample there were no voters who responded undecided or refused to answer the presidential ballot test question. However, in the over-sample there were voters who responded undecided or refused to answer; and

Data from the parliamentary ballot
test question was excluded from the full data set making it impossible to compare the presidential ballot test question and the parliamentary ballot test question to check for anomalies.

“As a result, IRI does not have confidence in the integrity of the data and therefore believes the poll is invalid. The institute will not release a poll it believes is invalid and in which we do not have full confidence.”

JOSHUA C. KULEI’S RESPONSE TO MR. RANNEBERGER’S ALLEGED
BANN TO TRAVEL TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Our Client’s attention has been drawn to the allegation that he
has been barred from traveling to the United States of America
together with his family, allegedly because of corruption and
being involved in the Post Election Violence and impunity.
These representations were made inter alia in an interview
Christened “Capital Talk” in K24 television station, and the
Nairobi Star Newspaper Issue No. 538 of Wednesday, 25th
March 2009.
In response, our Client wishes to state as hereunder:-
1. Neither he nor his family has most recently applied to
travel and or invest in the United States of America. There
was therefore no reason for the Ambassador to purport
that our client had been denied opportunity to travel to
United States of America.
2. Our client has no immediate business interest; and has no
immediate intention to visit and or stay in the United States
of America himself or his family members and the
Ambassador’s announcement is in vain. The Ambassador
stated when waxing about corruption, post-election
violence and impunity, that USA is taking the steps it has
taken to punish guilty parties. Our client pities the
Ambassador because neither he nor his family feel
punished in any way by not travelling to USA. Our client is
happy and content as a resident and national of The
Republic of Kenya.
3. Our Client wishes to state emphatically that:-
a) He has not been involved in any corrupt events or
actions;
b) He was not involved in the Post Election Violence either
by supporting or inciting or perpetrating violence or
otherwise. As a matter of fact he was a victim of post
2
election violence, and lost property to theft and arson
which include livestock, maize, houses and machinery
as well as staff members. These facts were already
communicated to the Ambassador in response to a
letter he wrote on the 4th February 2008.
c) Further our client was out of the country for over 10
days and came back to find the clashes taking place.
d) There is no cause of him being liable for impunity as he
is in no position to procure the environment that would
afford him impunity.
e) No competent court has adjudged him guilty of any
criminal culpability for corruption, violence, impunity or
otherwise.
4. Our client was a Personal Assistant to the former President,
His Excellency D. T. Arap Moi, and is exceedingly
saddened to be subjected to harassment and
unwelcome, dishonest, negative publicity for having
discharged his duties as a President’s Personal Assistant.
Our client is now retired from Government for over 7 years
and he has neither in the past nor in the present wielded
any influence to enjoy impunity for whatsoever reason. He
is neither in the public service nor is he a public official.
Our client has no connections or close links to any key
leader or leaders in the Grand coalition Government to
warrant an accusation of corruption, impunity and or
violence by association in the least.
5. The Ambassador’s announcements are neither consistent,
nor made in good faith. They are made for the sake of
cheap publicity and the ego of an idle Diplomat at the
end of his career arrogating and assigning himself the role
of a prefect and a supervisor of Kenyan citizens and
Kenyan institutions (which in this case include the Police,
Anti Corruption Commission and the Judiciary). Our client
maintains this as:-
3
a) The Ambassador had initially said the person banned was
a sitting Cabinet Minister. He subsequently changed and
alleged it is our Client without any lawful cause or
justification. Clearly the Ambassador is confused, does not
have a clear mind as to the issues he is going public
about in terms of the person in issue, the grounds for the
decisions he is purporting in his public statements, and the
occasion prompting his public announcement. For
instance, our client has not applied to visit USA in the
recent past. And our client’s case is not an isolated
manifestation of the Ambassador’s public utterances,
made and retracted depending on his capricious whims.
b) Further the Ambassador’s mention that the person in issue
was a Politician has no reference to our client. If the
Ambassador had made effort to ascertain his facts there
would be no senile allegation of that erroneous and
misleading statement. It is a norm that previous US envoys
have always verified their facts before going public.
c) The ambassador has no respect for Kenyan institutions. It is
the Kenyan legal System that would determine if anybody
is guilty of any corruption and or any case of Post Election
Violence and/or impunity before a categorical statement
can be made in the manner as alleged by the
Ambassador that our client has culpability for crime.
Further our client is unaware of any police investigation or
any of the alleged culpabilities stated by the
Ambassador. The Ambassador alleges that there is a
preponderance of evidence that our client is culpable for
impunity, corruption and post election violence. He does
not state how the evidence was gathered, tested and
verified to achieve the status of preponderance.
However, and in any event any process of gathering
evidence to this effect would be acts amounting to USA
running parallel and unwelcome police investigative
system, outside the formal Kenyan system to collect data
4
on Kenyan citizens. This is exceedingly strange coming
from the Ambassador of a country that prides itself on the
rule of law, natural justice, fair hearing and all the civilized
attributes of fair democracy. It is even stranger coming
from the current USA government which has averred to
maintain an international policy to respect other people
and other governments, regardless of inter alia race. USA
is clearly the most powerful country in the world but in
good conscience should not be a bully through its
diplomats.
d) Our client has never been afforded an opportunity to be
told what specific allegations there are against him to
enable him respond or rebut. The Ambassador has either
come up on his own with the allegation of corruption,
culpability for post election violence and impunity or
otherwise has relied on baseless rumors, or has elected to
publicize the version of publicity he prefers for his ego.
Attention is drawn to the fact that the Ambassador wrote
to our client on 4th February 2008 and our client
responded on 6th February 2008 inviting the Ambassador
to avail material he has for him to give a response. To
date the Ambassador has not responded, this must be
because he has no material. The announcement he has
now made are callous and wild coming from him, and
after our client having offered him an opportunity to verify
the allegations.
e) The conduct and utterances of Michael Ranneberger on
our client, and generally, are outside his call of duty and is
an appalling misuse of diplomatic immunity to orchestrate
and propagate falsehoods in circumstances that the
victims of the falsehoods have no avenue to defend
themselves and/or cause him to take personal
responsibility by inter alia facing a cause for defamation.
Mr. Ranneberger’s conduct is in bad taste, theatrical, less
than honest, is perverse and cowardly.He is invited to
5
waive his diplomatic immunity if his allegations have merit
in the least and face our client in a court of law.
f) Clearly Mr. Ranneberger has become a hired mercenary
in what is evidently an obvious political alignment to help
his friends towards the 2012 political prospects. Mr.
Ranneberger has abandoned the cause of USA and has
redirected his energies to take sides in Kenyan current
and future politics, and misused his diplomatic security
and privileges. Our client shall hope that the
Ambassador’s overdue stay in Kenya will be noticed in his
deploying country and invited to the much needed
(albeit undeserved) retirement.
g) The Ambassador would seem to have a personal grudge
against our client, probably in regard to his extraction as
demonstrated in the manner in which the Ambassador
would strut his diplomatic status and the office conferred
to him by his country to pursue personal vendetta in
circumstances that would amount to abuse of his office in
Kenya.
h) Our client maintains that Mr. Ranneberger’s ( in the extent
of his inconsistencies, goofs, contradictions, misuse of his
diplomatic privileges, lending himself to be used for
political ends, spite for Kenya’s institutions and citizens,
pursuit of stale allegations and disregard for real cases of
corruption, inability to ascertain his facts , exceeding
readiness for cheap publicity ) displays everything that a
diplomat should not do in a host country and represents
arrogant impunity and septic corruption and very possibly
intolerance of person clothed in other shades of colour.

b) Further the Ambassador’s mention that the person in issue was a Politician has no reference to our client. If the Ambassador had made effort to ascertain his facts there would be no senile allegation of that erroneous and misleading statement. It is a norm that previous US envoys have always verified their facts before going public.

c) The ambassador has no respect for Kenyan institutions. It is the Kenyan legal System that would determine if anybody is guilty of any corruption and or any case of Post Election Violence and/or impunity before a categorical statement can be made in the manner as alleged by the Ambassador that our client has culpability for crime. Further our client is unaware of any police investigation or any of the alleged culpabilities stated by the Ambassador. The Ambassador alleges that there is a preponderance of evidence that our client is culpable for impunity, corruption and post election violence. He does not state how the evidence was gathered, tested and verified to achieve the status of preponderance. However, and in any event any process of gathering evidence to this effect would be acts amounting to USA running parallel and unwelcome police investigative system, outside the formal Kenyan system to collect data on Kenyan citizens. This is exceedingly strange coming from the Ambassador of a country that prides itself on the rule of law, natural justice, fair hearing and all the civilized attributes of fair democracy. It is even stranger coming from the current USA government which has averred to maintain an international policy to respect other people and other governments, regardless of inter alia race. USA is clearly the most powerful country in the world but in good conscience should not be a bully through its diplomats.

d) Our client has never been afforded an opportunity to be told what specific allegations there are against him to enable him respond or rebut. The Ambassador has either come up on his own with the allegation of corruption, culpability for post election violence and impunity or otherwise has relied on baseless rumors, or has elected to publicize the version of publicity he prefers for his ego. Attention is drawn to the fact that the Ambassador wrote to our client on 4th February 2008 and our client responded on 6th February 2008 inviting the Ambassador to avail material he has for him to give a response. To date the Ambassador has not responded, this must be because he has no material. The announcement he has now made are callous and wild coming from him, and after our client having offered him an opportunity to verify the allegations.

e) The conduct and utterances of Michael Ranneberger on our client, and generally, are outside his call of duty and is an appalling misuse of diplomatic immunity to orchestrate and propagate falsehoods in circumstances that the victims of the falsehoods have no avenue to defend themselves and/or cause him to take personal responsibility by inter alia facing a cause for defamation. Mr. Ranneberger’s conduct is in bad taste, theatrical, less than honest, is perverse and cowardly.He is invited to waive his diplomatic immunity if his allegations have merit in the least and face our client in a court of law.

f) Clearly Mr. Ranneberger has become a hired mercenary in what is evidently an obvious political alignment to help his friends towards the 2012 political prospects. Mr. Ranneberger has abandoned the cause of USA and has redirected his energies to take sides in Kenyan current and future politics, and misused his diplomatic security and privileges. Our client shall hope that the Ambassador’s overdue stay in Kenya will be noticed in his deploying country and invited to the much needed (albeit undeserved) retirement.

g) The Ambassador would seem to have a personal grudge against our client, probably in regard to his extraction as demonstrated in the manner in which the Ambassador would strut his diplomatic status and the office conferred to him by his country to pursue personal vendetta in circumstances that would amount to abuse of his office in Kenya.

h) Our client maintains that Mr. Ranneberger’s ( in the extent of his inconsistencies, goofs, contradictions, misuse of his diplomatic privileges, lending himself to be used for political ends, spite for Kenya’s institutions and citizens, pursuit of stale allegations and disregard for real cases of corruption, inability to ascertain his facts , exceeding readiness for cheap publicity ) displays everything that a diplomat should not do in a host country and represents arrogant impunity and septic corruption and very possibly intolerance of person clothed in other shades of colour.
