Dear Kenyans. Forgive me for being in this foul mood. I can’t hold back when our president and his wife are crying at a Press conference. A responsible child should show concern when his parents are crying loudly in public. Am in this foul mood because this article is not meant for Kibaki’s loyal diehards and those whose reasoning faculty equates to Lucy’s or is even worse.
It is a big shame to the First Family and
Kenyans are not fools. Kibaki’s antics, edged on by Lucy’s crocodile tears and loose temper and slapping public officials in public, will not wash away the truth or fool anyone. Instead, they will aggravate the already volatile situation.
Majority of Kenyans are today faced with serious problems and are spending sleepless nights cracking their heads on how to put a meal on the table and pay school fees and meet the rising cost of living. They care less about their president’s domestic woes and how many wives he has.
Be careful because if your hard drive crashes you reduce the chances of successful data recovery by trying to revive the hard drive on your own. It is always a better idea to call in the experts right away.
Former Kabate MP Paul Muite was just re-stating what the then minister for Internal Security, John Muchiki, had told the parliamentary committee investigating the Standard raid and the Artur bothers’ saga. Mr Muite was chairing the committee and he on Monday disclosed what Michuki gave as the motive to dispatch a police squad to raid the Standard. The Standard was raided by state agents when Kibaki was in power. Kibaki should have used his Press conference with his burly wife to explain who ordered the raid, why and what was achieved instead of whining and shedding crocodile tears while TV cameras rolled.
Rather than Kibaki try to fools Kenyans who already know the truth, he should have been kind enough to shed more light on who is Mary Wambui and who is the father of her daughter, Winnie Mwai, why the two enjoyed Presidential security, and why Kibaki remained silent as the two brought to Kenya the Artur brothers and housed the criminals as they went around defecating and defiling our motherland with impunity. And they returned to their country scot-free! Kibaki did not appear on TV or utter a word, yet he was president of the
Every married man will tell you he has domestic crisis in his home. But the wise ones solve their domez under the confines of their bedroom or within their home boundaries and not in public. They wouldn’t even want neighbours to know there was a fall out.
It is in bad faith for Kibaki to misuse public resources and officials to help him clean up his domestic filth. He appeared at Tuesday’s Press conference in the company of head of Civil Service, Francis Muthaura, and Commissioner of Police, Maj Gen Mohammed Hussein Ali. Why misuse such senior public officials? Maj Gen Ali should be explaining why he is so blood-thirsty going to the extent of executing youths at will under the guise of fighting crime and Mungiki. Kenyans pay the Commissioner of Police a salary to make their country safer and not sort out their president’s domestic woes. Next time I suffer a domestic problem, I’ll summon Maj Gen Ali to my house and the media to re-state my position.
In fact, Maj Gen Ali should have been sacked on the spot on Tuesday because he watched and did nothing as Lucy committed a crime by threatening to raid the Standard. She even owned up raiding the Nation. Maj Gen Ali should have arrested her and locked her up pending court appearance today morning.
Kibaki, like any other married man, should put his house in order and not wail and look for scapegoats while he was solely responsible for his domestic mess. By engaging in endless public dramas, Kibaki and his wife only end up looking more foolish and open themselves to public ridicule. Kibaki must stand up like a real man and not act stupidly and foolishly under pressure from his “dear wife”.
Picture the following and Kibaki remained silent:
Ø The Grand Coalition Government he heads is dogged by serious political problems which he has turned a blind eye to.
Ø Prof Alston released a report exposing grisly police executions and the existence of police death squads in
Kumekucha titbits: Avoid sitting for hours in a traffic jam on your way to the city centre from the airport. Simply book into a nice brand new budget hotel in the outskirts of Nairobi 5 minutes from the airport.
Ø On the other hand, Mungiki and other criminal gangs have been killing Kenyans at will. Instead of reforming the Kenya Police to make it responsive to the needs of Kenyans, Kibaki allows Maj Gen Ali to round up anyone he wishes and executes them in the name of fighting Mungiki. For every one Mungiki executed by police, they (police) end up killing at least five innocent Kenyans. Surely, this is not the way modern police fight crime.
Ø Poor Kenyans have been going hungry, party due to theft of maize, but largely due weak Government food policies. Some Kenyans have since died and Kibaki cares less.
Ø The oil scandal in the Ministry of Energy and other corruption scandals. Kibaki had promised his regime would make
Ø The Anglo Leasing scandal, masterminded by Kibaki’s close aides, went on unabated despite Kibaki being made aware of it. Despite the huge sums of public money involved, the matter was swept under the carpet and trashed into history without any action.
Ø Kibaki spent huge public resources in the Goldenberg inquiry only to end up with a report being tossed in Government shelves to gather dust.
Ø The Artur brothers’ saga went on right in Kibaki’s eyes. We ended up in another fake commission of inquiry.
Ø Kibaki traded the Grand Regency Hotel with Libyan President Gadhafi for campaign funds in 2007 and purported it was sold last year. If the hotel was sold where did the money go? Another fake commission was formed.
Ø Kibaki promised us a constitution within 100 days after re rose to power in Dec 2002. The matter was forgotten when he attained what he wanted.
Ø Does Kibaki know there was a State House-sponsored raid on the offices of the Standard Group in March 2006 because we have never heard his voice?
It’s a pity that Kibaki remains silent where Kenyans are faced with serious challenges and only appear on TV to growl about his dear wife! Kibaki, please do better than this. You are a man. A man does not go crying and whining in public because his wife has put him under pressure to denounce a parallel affair.
I wish Kibaki and Lucy make good their threat to take Hon Muite to court. What a juicy drama will that be? Under pressure from his wife, MP Mwangi Kiunjuri took the media to court when it was reported he had been seized in a police swoop on prostitutes on
