The Big Boys Are Watching Us

It was the big boys impersonating me.

Two days ago I dropped a post here about a contemptuous Kikuyu Kingdom. Many bloggers responded with fire, called me the juiciest names they could recall from their days before they got saved. Obviously there were others who attempted a rational discussion and I appreciated that very much. The free flow of thought is always a good thing.

Today I'm writing to confirm what my good friend Chris has always claimed here. The Big Boys are indeed watching this space. My folks who always track down cyber threats to my work and words carried out a check on who had successfully broken into my profile. When they gave me the report, it brought a chill at first, then another smile, just like the one I had at the Kenya National Library. It occurred to me that The Big Boys are watching us here at KK.

By impersonating me and using a string of anonymous, they wanted to derail the healthy discussion that should have followed my post. They failed. In between the noise, you found men and women who saw my post for what it was...a provocative piece that called on us to look around and see what was going on.

It makes me feel pretty good that through the tireless efforts of Chris and other sharp bloggers on KK, this space has been molded into an authoritative voice for the millions of Kenyan at home and abroad. For those who have friends and relatives who don't read us yet, call them today and let them know what they are missing.

Seriously, if the big boys are reading us, why wouldn't every Kenyan want to know what we are saying? Forget the Daily Nation commentators, read Chris and Taabu and Sayra and Kalamari and Urlnx and our other great minds. The only guy you may want to avoid reading like a plague is my friend least until he honors his pledge to buy me that lunch at Kosewe.

Oh, and avoid reading Sam Okello by all means. That guy, like one blogger said, is bure kabisa.

On this sweet morning in Nairobi, I wish on each of you a cool breeze.

This reminds of a story done by Chris early this year that Mama Obama was being guarded by CIA. It turned out to be hogwash. The only big guys watching this space is maybe the ones you have listed as 'intelligent'. The others are the voices of reason from the likes of Vikii that you fail to listen to.
So how did you get your account back? Negotiated with the big guys?
How feeble!!!

Sam Okello,

I don't think you're normal. You should be treated with contempt.

Mwarang'ethe said...

To Mr Okello:

With due respect, we are of the view that, there is nothing like Luo presidency. To think so, is absurd.

Likewise, there is nothing like Kikuyu presidency. Thus, for those who think they are defending the Kikuyu presidency, woe unto you.

M-Pesa said...


I will be terse and straight to the point: You have won the shouting match but lost the argument!


Especially those watchies and cleaners sweating it out abroad, yes Kenya ain't perfect and never will, but it's still a great place to live!

There's nowhere like home. Whenever I'm outside the country for months, I miss home kabisa and can't wait for the plane to touch down at JKIA. Who cares about the potholes, matatu madness, congestion etc. Doesn't every city have it's owns hits and misses?

Today I was at the Immigration Department in Nyayo House ground floor and was shocked to see long queues of INDIANS, SOMALIS, CHINESE, SUDANESE etc waiting for their papers to live and work in Kenya. Whenever Italians are being deported from Kenya, they scream, curse, yell and even go to court so as to live here!

I was informed some report as early as 5.00 AM and many will bribe using millions to have Kenyan IDs. These people have chosen to live in Kenya out of hundreds of other countries while our own people are busy hating their own country.

Yes, our politicians are scumbags but at the end of the day, it's up to the citizens to sort the wheat from the chaff. I LOVE KENYA! Mta do?

Samo aka Sam O,
big boys must be the code word for kikuyu kingdom

hacking into your account is yet another example of a contemptuous act this monarchy has perpetrated against you

This blog never ceases to amaze! I would really like to know how someone hacked into a bloggers account here. Why don't these NSIS or whoever just get their own identities and post whatever it is they want?

Sorry, I just don't get it.

Warothe said...


Spare us the CRAP!What you wrote yesterday crossed the line. That was NEGATIVE ETHNICITY at its worst and i was shocked and chilled to the bone.

I am Kikuyu but i will be the first to say Uhuru,Kibaki,Kiraitu carry their own cross. And in the same breath i shall say can Raila,Fidel,Ruto and all the Mau grabbers carry their own cross.

There is nothing like a Kikuyu presidency and there is nothing like a Luo presidency. And may i also point out that the stereotyping and generalizing has no basis in sociology. There is no premise to say that Kikuyus are predisposed to be thieves and Luos are predisposed to be whiners,victims or losers.

I pay my taxes,i pay my rent, Kibaki or Uhuru do not do it for me and even when they steal there is no bank account where Kikuyus go and withdraw. In the same way when Raila steals in the ministry of energy and becomes an oil billionaire and Fidel steals and sells maize to buy more Range Rover Sport Luos do not get a cut.

KumekuchaChris you are acting like a whore who shags more clients to make more money but forgets that her body is decaying and dying. In the same way you hunger and thirst for higher traficf into your site has made you allow SCUM like Sam Okello to post HATE SPEECH here against an ENTIRE TRIBE and fuel the problem of ethnicity.

Yesterday was the START of THE DEATH of Kumekucha. I have read this blog for maybe three years now and in as much as we never totally agreed on everything we always agreed on the need for CHANGE and A BETTER KENYA.

What went wrong till Chris you can sanction a post advocating for the EXTERMINATION of Kikuyus???

God save Kenya!

God bless Kenya!

bart jelsma said...

my humble opinion is formed after reading as much as possible kenyan news and Angela Wrong's book on Githongo 'It is our turn to eat', which i would advise everyone to read.
The observation of some ladies talking deep kikuyu and conclusion that centers of power are run by Kikuyu sounds true in my ears.
Githongo who was a member of Kibaki's government and a Kikuyu himself noticed the same thing and objected to his colleagues speaking kikuyu instead of swahili or english that everyone would understand.
Kibaki and his inner circle of Kikuyus in government believe that it is their right to govern Kenya and therefore it is acceptable to engage in corrupt activities as long as Kikuyus benefit from it and stay in power.
Loyalty to tribe is more important than loyalty to Kenya, corruption scams and stealing an election is therefore acceptable.
Githongo was expected as a Kikuyu not to 'shame' his tribe but to go slow and be loyal to his tribe.However he considered himself to be a Kenyan instead and had to flee.
Because his need to flee fits a trend, a trend whereby until today no high profile person has been prosecuted for major corruption scandals,no person has been arrested over extrajudicial killings by Kwekwe and probably Uhuru will not be sacked over the 9.2 billion because i read Kibaki supports him.
This is the problem,Kibaki and some old powerful Kikuyu use the corruption money to stay in power and to enrich themselves.The Mount Kenya mafia is real.
These people protect corrupt ministers,protect an execution issueing police commisioner and will bite anyone who dares to rattle the snake.
This explains the trend why human rights activists are killed and threatened because they expose government corruption.It explains why their mail addresses and phones are checked and why probably Kumekucha is on NSIS's watchlist. It explains why Odinga complains he is left out and not consulted and why we now have two centers of government.
I suspect the mungiki is also a threat to the mount kenya mafia because the mungiki are kikuyus too and might become a political movement of the young who will demand equal share of the resources/riches that the mount kenya have abundantly.Why is Maina Njenga immediately rearrested?Why does the PNU side of government refuse to accept foreign assistance into solving of Oscar Kamau murder?

bart jelsma said...

what Maina Kiai and Paul Muite had to say about Kikuyu entitlement:

Today E.A. Standard on Uhuru's missing 9.2 or 14 billion, says that Kibaki has always resisted to have the budgetary process open for parlementary oversight.

The only reason i can think of why he resists oversight is that Kibaki is aware of corrupt deals,condones it and protects the ones committing the crime.

maria said...

these are the kind of posts that make some of us go hmmm and then dismiss you.

maybe the big boys are watching you and trying to impersonate you, sawa. post what comments should not be attributed to you and the anons you think are plants so that we know what's what.

in shrouding your post in vagueness it stinks to high heaven of you trying to side step what many of the 100+ comments were trying to get across. that in saying entire tribes are to blame for problems and only another entire tribe can save us you are part of the problem. how is your post on the kikuyu kingdom different than what politicians have been saying before and since most of us were born about one tribe or another? by identifying the kikuyus as the problem that needs eradication and then trying to brand your thoughts as nationalistic what were you trying to prove or achieve? ama its the echo chamber effect you wanted, with people saying "yes, finish them! and "all kikuyus must go!"?

then comes this post you have put up today saying that read us more! we are the authoratative voice of kenyans everywhere. if you want to widen your readership fine, but don't propagate tribalism in the name of hits on the site. the only reason some people are coming to read (and the reason someone sent me the post on the kikuyu kingdom) was akin to people watching a train wreck or slowing down to see the scene of a car crash. its proof of how low kenyans can go and how much harder we have to work to avoid these myopic "answers" being bandied about when 2007 taught us that we shouldn't play with fire.

instead of patting yourself on the back for a job well done and starting on the internet equuivalent of "they are trying to finish me!" press conference do you plan to take your head out of the sand and engage with those who called you out on your irrational and poorly thought commentary? or at least fafanua, maybe we misunderstood you or something.

and what healthy discussion did you expect to pop up from your thoughts the other day? what i saw was hate speech, i half expected to read that some folks should be lying low like envelopes and that they should go back home and all those other thinly veiled comments that i have come to expect from the career tribalists/politicians/deluded wanainchi with no agenda other than their own and with the thoughts of kenya the country on the back burner.

here's hoping that once you are done congratulating yourself on the "brand new" thoughts on how this tribe good, this tribe bad you will look beyond the yes men and women and engage in something other than demonizing hard working kenyans. until then sorry, i'm not convinced. i have seen the effects of hate mongering and found it repulsive. its just sad that people think more of the same will save kenyans and kumbe we are just digging a deeper hole for ourselves.

Villagers hunt down mungiki adherents
Written By:Wangari Kanyongo , Posted: Tue, May 12, 2009

Tension is high in Kirinyaga again following renewed door to door search for mungiki sect members by vigilante groups.

The groups launched an attack on bodaboda operators some of whom they accused of refusing to join in the search for the sect members in Kagio town.

The vigilantes whisked away about 80 bodaboda operators to a secret meeting.

The operators claimed that the villagers were harassing them by demanding a Sh50 protection fee.

In the swoop a lady who is believed to be a Mungiki informer escaped death narrowly after the angry youths confiscated her phone which had numbers of the Mungiki followers in the area.

Kirinyaga south district commissioner Kula Hache visited Kagio and Ngurubani town in a bid to ease the tension.

She assured residents that the government is working closely with members of the community policing and had managed to arrest several youths around Kagio market.

Findings of investigations into the murder of 29 people in the area a fortnight ago are yet to be released by the commissioner of police.

The sect members have invaded parts of Central province where they have been terrorizing villagers.

In most parts residents have been forced to pay Sh15 a day for semi-permanent homes, Sh100 for timber-structures and Sh800 for permanent stone buildings.

On a lighter note:

Yesterday after my post on “mitumba bookkeeping “I really got tired of all the tribal’s and their rants. I was forced to detach myself from the poison being spewed out and decided to go out for a walk and get some fresh air. On my way out the jingle “Baada ya Kazi, jiburudishe Na …. “ Kept ringing in my head  .KBL has done a very fine job with that jingle am still trying to figure out what’s the trigger as the sound was not on anywhere. Neither was there any logo in sight! Since I was not in any rush I scooped up some loose change and my phone just in case. After about 20 minutes walk, lets just call him MKenyaOne rang, he was wondering what I was doing and the latest in cyberspace. I explained am out stretching and there is this jingle ringing in my head - hoping he would get the drift and in the true Kenyan spirit of “Badala ya kazi “ he decided to join me.

We instinctively choose a corner with low lighting as if “Kenyan politics “is a dirty word and should be discussed under cover or anonymously. We decided to raise the quorum to six, we both are frankly feed up tribal acrobats so we made sure that the next four should come from different parts of our Great Nation and are genuinely interested to be part of the solution.

In no time we were joined by MKenyaTu and MKenyaWaTree, and a short while later in quick succession KenyaFo and MkenyaFaif. That jingle can do wonders, if you want Kenyans to come early to a meeting or anything you organize, I suggest you try and associate it with the jingle; it will be standing room only.

After all were seated and spiced with the usual complaints - which incidentally all of us have and need to vent out once in a while just to remain sane - I presented them with a challenge , since we were representative of our Great Nation of Kenya . Let’s try and discuss this issue without pride or prejudice, everybody agreed and we were determined to rise above the commotion.

We checked through the angles, discussed the MSM reports , the blogosphere was not spared ,we got in touch with the “usual suspects “ to get fresh ideas or angles from any side that would move our quest forward. We always came back to the big WHO. Who authorised the changes, who did the changes, who supervised the changes, at that point we decided to stop as speculation could end up influencing our conclusion. I could see the drinks were also beginning to take their toll and we had started recycling with innocent spin what others have said before us. We had started going in circles, it would not be long before the circles turned into oblongs 

At that point we decided to quit and call it a day. I left my friends with what I thought would be the best way to close my “mitumba bookkeeping “concerns finish this discussion with something that all can agree with - I asked how about looking at this through MATHEMATICS. What results would we find? It would be fitting to put their “error “theory to test. Since our mental capacity was somewhat diminished at the point we did not come up with a formula but we generally agreed on what would be the best approach.

So here it is - the day after and to the director of the budget we will allow YOU to put the computers in your office to good use - at least for once checking the posibility of your own "errors". You will be shocked to see what you find !

How many letters are in the supplementary budget?
How many numbers are in the supplementary budget?
How many numbers were wrong?
How many letters were wrong?

What is the probability of only getting that subset of numbers wrong, and not a single letter + the rest of the remaining correct subset of numbers wrong ?

“Badala ya Kazi “is a registered trademark of 4th Estate but you can use it freely and lastly all characters are fictitious – They do NOT exist, apart from THE DIRECTOR

I have a problem with the kikuyu leadership not the kikuyus as a people. But those who have made this abnormality to be a reality a the kiuks electorate.

The truth be said, Many kenyans have come to loath the kiuks coz of the way the way Kibaki administration has conducted itself. The highest form of corruption, impunity and disregard of the laws.Empty promises and rhetorics. The Union in PNU is not democratic.

What sam wrote was more that the truth, call him what you want but truth is truth, truth cannot be defended it defends itself. If you have not realised kuwa the most powerful and important dockets , departments and offices are occupied by kikuyus , then i have to say you are DUMP. Security , constitution, finance, CID, central bank, Kenya revenue authority, the presidency.

The internet and the bloggosphere since 9/11 is no place to think inciting words and remarks go un-noticed. some people earn a living through tracing such stuff, so being anonymous and posting hate doesn't mean you wont get noticed... once noticed its rated on which ever grades of threat and acted upon or thrown in trash.

the thing is if someone hacked you he probably also got info on everyone posting in Kumekucka....(yeah im posting too) unless you use linux on your server

Otherwise to add on the tribal situation.. all grown-up kenyans are individuals and never binded to their tribe in the sense yesterdays post mirrored. divide and rule is so old fashioned now it has to be Rich vs Poor to navigate out ALL Kenyan problems peacefully.

You took a swipe at me but at least you should have provided your readers with the correct link. Are you afraid of debate, Bwana Okello?

I asked you a question which I am still waiting for you to answer: if it is okay for you to indict the entire "contemptuous kikuyu" people on the basis the misgivings of some, shouldn't it then be fine with you when Black stereotyping and all the ugliness that comes with it,is applied to you? Are you a welfare, oversexed crack addict of low intelligence?

You are a hopelessly bigoted character and as I said on my blog, only divine intervention can save your likes.

The rest of us should move on and fight for the establishment of institutions which will inoculate innocent wananchi from HATEFUL PEOPLE such can Sam Okello can hate all he wants but know that as soon as his hate causes harm to anybody, then there can never be a "I was only fighting for democracy" excuse.

CLICK HERE for a reasonable discussion on tribalism said...

This is why I am saying that tribalism is rapidly becoming a scapegoat to all our failures.

PEOPLE VOTE FOR THEIR SELF-INTERESTS.Had Sam Okello run for president as he had bragged he would, chances are no sane Kikuyu would have voted for him because it is just against nature to identify with someone who is bent on destroying you. Even babies learn this really quick; you get in the habit of pinching a toddler and see how fast it stays away from you.

It is called self-preservation So he would have lost the Kikuyu vote and instead of blaming it on his blind, exclusive brand of politics, he would have yapped on and on about tribalism.

Same case with Raila and Kibaki. Raila called Kikuyus "adui" and adopted the 41 versus 1 winning strategy...why would anyone be surprised that Kikuyus did not vote for him almost to a man!!!!?

Kibaki called Raila, a national leader with a huge clout and a huge following, "mavi ya kuku" he also did not pay attention to any of grievances that the other side might have had. Is it a surprise that he lost the Western vote???

People vote their self-interest and if their self interest appear to be best preserved by one of their own, that is who they will vote for.

A good enough politician should however be able to make inroads to tribes beyond his just as long as he does a good job of selling his policy and staying away from denigrating people who have votes....Sam, that is common sense politics 101.

Kenyans are tribalists and are not capable to live as bros and sis.We are least developed in our minds. Developement begins in the mind.

1)Kenyans want cheap money without working
2)Kenyans love everything foreign
3)Kenyans admire culprits
4)Kenyans pray everyday but adore devils
5)Kenyans dont care about others as long as they are doing well
6)Kenyans go to school to be rich and not to get knowledge
7)Kenyans bore into their noses in public
8)Kenyans drink too much
9)Kenyans never use their brains but rather leaves everything to God
10)Kenyans hate fair competition but love winning by cheating
11) Kenyans have no manners

Examples to:
1)Corruption is tolerated even in the villages. Mungiki men are respected. Traffic Police tax Matatus. Nobody says anything
2)Anything imported, however worthless, is highly liked
3)Artur bros were executives in Kenya. Any thug can make it in our country.
5)Fees is being increased everyday. School Principals are becoming the richest Kenyans. Nobody reacts.
6)Prof Saitoti
9)Accidents occur mainly due to bad roads and state of the vehicles. But people still think it is due to overspeeding alone. It is easier for a Kenyan to build a bump and import speed governors
10)Wanjirus, Kipchoges, Oliechs are very few. Thieves are many and are respected more.
11)People eat with hands and prick their teeth after dining. No table manners in Kenya. Go to Ken-Chic Restaurant or Hilton: It is the same.

Kenya’s in-law is new SA defence minister

By SAMWEL KUMBAPosted Tuesday, May 12 2009 at 19:50

As minister for Defence in the cabinet named by new South African President Jacob Zuma, Ms Lindiwe Sisulu is undoubtedly one of the most powerful persons in the African powerhouse.

When President Kibaki attended the inauguration of President Zuma at the weekend, it might not have immediately struck him that he could claim the person soon after to be appointed Defence minister.

Ms Sisulu is the wife of a Kenyan, Prof Rok Ajulu, one of the academics who fled the country at the height of the Moi repression targeting independent thinkers and perceived dissidents in the early 1980s.

Prof Ajulu told the Daily Nation on Tuesday that he was not surprised about the appointment since his wife was a fairly senior minister already.

“You are aware she has previously held very senior positions. Having been minister in the Intelligence docket, she has a feel of the happenings in the Defence ministry,” he said.

Prof Ajulu was in Kenya just a month ago, and while visiting prefers to stay in his rural home in Bondo “because it is cheaper”. His wife will accompany him home for a Christmas party later this year where they intend to spend over ten days.

Despite his long period away, Prof Ajulu has never forgotten his Kenyan roots. He has been a regular visitor since the fall of the one-party regime, and maintains close contact with his compatriots from the days of the struggle, including Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Lands minister James Orengo and Health minister Anyang’ Nyong’o.

His daughter from a previous relationship in England, Achieng Ajulu Bushell, retains close ties with Kenya. An international swimmer, she opted to represent Kenya rather than England or South Africa.

Prof Ajulu’s wife had a lengthy stint as former President Thabo Mbeki’s Housing minister, a critical docket charged with addressing some of the inequalities of apartheid.

Major promotion

But her appointment to the powerful Defence ministry marks a major promotion. She is not just in charge of a major budget, but also one of the most powerful military machines in Africa.
The South Africa military has the capacity to launch sea, air and ground strikes across vast swathes of Africa.

Since the end of apartheid, however, it has not been deployed for hostile activities against other African countries, focusing more on peacekeeping operations. It is a vital strategic force in terms of regional security. The new Defence minister and her husband are both children of and veterans of the struggle.

Ms Sisulu is a daughter of freedom struggle icons Walter and Albertina Sisulu and an icon of the anti-apartheid campaign in her own right. She was arrested and faced a life sentence at 24!

Prof Ajulu took the mantle from his father Stephen Odero Ajulu, who was a political activist in the 1960s under the then opposition Kenya People’s Union.

When his father died, Prof Ajulu stepped into the role as an adviser to then opposition leader Oginga Odinga, and then maintained a long collaboration with his son, Mr Raila Odinga.

Prof Ajulu’s father was imprisoned for political activities in Kenya while Ms Sisulu’s parents were imprisoned by the apartheid regime in South Africa.

Prof Ajulu was expelled from the University of Nairobi for political activism and ended up in South African exile via England and Lesotho.

Ms Sisulu also took up political activism and was also imprisoned by the apartheid regime before going into exile to continue her studies at the University of Lesotho. That was where the two met and eventually married in 1996.

As a youthful member of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the military wing of the ANC, Ms Sisulu specialised in intelligence and after her university education in Swaziland and England served as a key aide of Mr Zuma, then the ANC Intelligence chief.

In 1990, after the unbanning of the ANC and other political organisations, Ms Sisulu returned to South Africa and resumed work as personal assistant to Mr Zuma.

She then joined the government as an administrator in the Department of Intelligence and Security for the ANC. She also worked as chief administrator of the ANC at the Convention for a Democratic South Africa and as a consultant for Unesco’s Children’s Rights Committee.

In 1992, she was awarded the Human Rights Centre fellowship in Geneva. She has published extensively on the subjects of women, the liberation struggle, working conditions and agriculture.

Ms Sisulu was elected to the South African Parliament in 1994 and was appointed to the Housing docket in April of that year, where she oversaw a massive programme required to redress years of racial inequalities.

She held the critical position of Minister of Intelligence between January 2001 and April 2004 and served as deputy minister of Home Affairs between 1996 and 2001. In addition to children from previous relationships, the couple has a son, Olindi Obango, named after his paternal grandparents.

Che Samora Ajulu is the eldest son and is named after the revolutionary Cuban and Mozambican leaders, Che Guavera and Samora Machel. There is also a daughter Ayanda and a son, Vuyo.

Sam - this and your previous post may have been intended to be thought provoking and i sympathise with you on this, but the reality is that ethnicity is still a rather raw subject and a vast majority do not have the capacity to engage objectively with or without prejudice in mature debate on the matter. perhaps you may want to revisit this further down the road.

regretably even as i sense the urgency in your wanting to broach the subject (tackle the bull by the horns so to speak), the fissures/causes for the ethnic acrimony the past several years have not been adequately addressed by the Min of Justice and National Cohesion, or through the Truth & Reconciliation efforts or any other organ that would seek a path to promote nationalism. hopefully such initiatives can be put in place soon and with sufficient information to educate the masses and pave the way for more informed debate.

if your objective is to set the pace, then i would recommend that you modify your approach to encourage more sober debate or else set some guidelines and then strictly enforce some rules for intellectual engagement, as you can see from the many comments here and in the previous section not a whole lot has been worth the effort and judging by complaints a number of comments have also been deleted ostensibly because they were found unsuitable.

i suggest you zero in on specifics of negative ethnicity and their impact on kenya's development. for instance the issues you allude to are in the areas of service delivery and corruption, if you can provide evidence of correlation between negative ethnicity and poor service delivery/corruption then that could be debatable, i however doubt that with increased education levels in kenya that you may get such irrefutable empirical evidence. in the case of kra and the library, you issued some sweeping statements but failed to make a case of poor or ineffectual service delivery. you may however want to make the case that recruitment process appear suspect if only members of one community flood a certain institution. its complicated and we've been there many times, there may be other alternatives to this and these have been captured in the various party manifestos which are not really being implemented right now.

i think there are other ways to confront such issues and for these we need wider and more inclusive participation and/or partnerships sometimes even with people we may not really want to work with.

Man jailed for "sleeping with cow"

A man was jailed for five years after he pleaded guilty to having carnal knowledge of a cow.

Peter Njoroge Kihika pleaded guilty to the charges before Nakuru Chief Magistrate, Wilbroda Juma.

The court heard that on the night of April 22, at Maili Sita trading centre, Nakuru North District, Esther Wanjiku Nyokabi heard some movements in her cowshed and accompanied by her nephew, they went to find out what was happening.

They caught Kihika in the act and started shouting forcing neighbours to respond.

Nyokabi explained to them what had happened and said that this was the second time she had found the accused in the act. She said the first time she forgave him after he pleaded for forgiveness.

Neighbours escorted him to Bahati Police Station.

In mitigation, Kihika told the court that he had turned to the animal as all the women in the area seemed to be sick.

"They must be sick as I see them die one by one," he said.

Juma said that the law was very strict on such offences and, therefore, would not be lenient on the accused.

"This is a very serious crime and you deserve to be punished.You will, therefore, serve five years in jail," she ruled.

Sex pest handed 20 years jail term

A sex pest has been jailed for 20 years for defiling a minor.

Kasimu Nyang’au, 59, was convicted by Kisii Resident Magistrate Ms Sylvia Wewa.

Nyang’au was found guilty of defiling a 13-year-old girl in Kisii town on February 28.

The court was told that the minor had been sent by her grandmother Mrs Mellen Nyanchera to Gesonso.

The girl arrived in Kisii town late and decided to ask the accused where she could board a vehicle to Jogoo Estate, in the outskirts of Kisii town.

The old man instead convinced her to remain within the premises since it was too late promising her accommodation.

After a few minutes, he grabbed her and repeatedly raped her.

The girl was rescued by another watchman, Mr Dennis Monari who took her to Kisii Police Station where she reported the incident.

She was later taken to hospital where she was treated and discharged.

The accused was arrested the same day and charged with defilement.

In mitigation, the accused claimed he was an elderly man and had two children in secondary school. He said he was remorseful adding his children would suffer if he is jailed.

Police deployed to Karua’s home as vigilantes threaten to strike

By Munene Kamau and Karanja Njoroge

Police have been deployed at the rural home of the Gichugu MP Martha Karua.

This was after a vigilante group hunting down Mungiki sect members allegedly threatened to storm it yesterday. Police said group was accusing the legislator of sympathising with Mungiki sect members.

The officers were deployed on Monday evening. In her recent public utterances, Karua has called for justice on the vigilante members who have been killing Mungiki adherents.

She has maintained that those committing murders, whether Mungiki or vigilantes, should be brought to justice, insisting that no one has a right to take another’s life.

Police in Kirinyaga yesterday said they would keep vigil at the home. Reached for comment, outgoing Kirinyaga OCPD Herbert Khaemba said he was on his way to Taita-Taveta where he has been transferred.

Sources told The Standard the OCPD was transferred following the lynching of 23 suspected Mungiki adherents by the vigilantes.

Meanwhile, secondary school teachers from Central Province have attributed the rise of Mungiki followers in the region to declining education standards.

During a meeting attended by 800 Secondary School teachers from the Province in Nakuru, the teachers said the issue was a major problem.

Central Province Secondary School Heads Association Chairman Elijah Nguyo said the standards of education need to improve urgently.

Mr Nguyo asked the teachers to be in the forefront in emphasising on importance of education to youths.

He said residents should not take law into their hands by forming vigilantes groups. He said some of those killed by vigilante groups in Kirinyaga and Nyeri districts were secondary school students.

Nguyo spoke at Bontana Hotel in Nakuru during the opening of a four-day meeting of secondary school heads. He said Mungiki leaders should realise their extortionist policies were not sustainable. "Devoid of values we are all beasts," he told the meeting.

The association said it had come up with proactive ways to reduce the number of school strikes.

Among the measures is the creation of provincial council of students to enable students participate in the management of schools. Student’s conferences have also been lined up.

The Chairman of the Media Owners Association Linus Gitahi asked the teachers to raise complaints on programmes deemed unsuitable for public viewing with the Media Council.

now this is an interesting game of chess

in order to be seen politically correct, the shenanigans at treasury must at the end of the day line up or add up. otherwise, the fallout will be tremendous from the public, donors, partners, parliament etc.

in order this to happen, reasonable scapegoat must be found (computer glitch, saboteur, typo error, whatever). the problem is then how do you engineer this so that the said scapegoat can be confined to only one incidence and secondly how do you explain how the error managed to worm its way through the many cross-check/reference points.

whereas the general public may be appeased by identifying a suitable entity (either low down or further up the food chain) for a subsequent ignominious parade the international community and a few interested parties may not be as understanding.

parliament and its committees will be hopeless at this because, as we all know over 90% MPs are only in this for the cash, and with freeze on spending, no imprest, no salaries/allowances, etc they will quickly throw in the towel and work out a "quiet compromise".

but tell me chris/sam if these people are playing around with figures such as these which are subject to a lot more scrutiny, what can we make of the other figures that have been thrown around re: economic growth, should someone (any volunteers MARS group) take a critical look and allay our fears? Just curious

Ever heard of the World Bank, O learned friend? If you'd like, I can hook you up with folks in Nairobi and DC who can help you locate the relevant national data--both cross-sectional and panel, well supervised and consistent too. Just you holler. Forget the MARS nonsense--that's an advocacy group, nothing objective there.

Neither the public nor parliament should employ double standards especially against Kikuyu ministers and/or MPs. This is grossly unfair, a crude political witch hunt, and will certainly not improve governance and may infact lead to even bigger problems for Keny. Does it means that its OK for Raila to steal maize when people are dying of starvation and oil and wrong for Uhuru to have a typo error, yet there is NO evidence of money stolen? These are Kenyans at their most primitive form and the rest of us will neither allow nor tolerate such partiality. The same standard for everyone! For once the Parliamentarians (not the few Luo ones) are thinking straighter than the emotional mwananchi--I never thought I'd live to see the day.

I have seen comments here which appear to be from kikuyus saying the supp budget saga shows uk's incompetence and he should be removed from MOF.

But a luo who claims to be a professor wants to beat an mp for just mentioning the name raila!

From my experience with these two tribes, i would take a kikuyu any day over a luo. Luos are just -- well museveni has said it -- mad. I know a lot of ugandans, especially baganda. They want nothing to do with luos. Luos may marry the south african defence minister and produce obama but here in east africa they are semi-human. You just cant reason with them. Namwamba is of course right but to a luo he has been bought and must be beaten for even mentioning the name raila! And these goons want to produce "a luo presidency"!

I urge luos to master the art of restraint before we trust them with the top seat. If RAO was the president and reacted with the anger of kibera residents, kenya would have been at war, a war the british said would have been the smallest war ever fought in history. History is ladden with men consumed by their own anger

my memory fails me a little, but m7 has reinvented a theme from a story i read long time back in "hekaya za abunwasi" in which abunwasi took ownership of a ground floor of a building and denied the boarders on the upper floor(s) access via the ground floor.

in this case the absurdity or irony is that this is by a president and a person looking towards greater regional integration and not the local village drunk.

i think if you scoop the water around the island you will find two different types, one that is clearly ugandan (if you hold it against the light) and another that is kenyan, duh! and no, the emperor is not naked, ok

To ease Sam Okello's pain here is a something to reinforce the bigotry but with a nice laugh...

The angel Gabriel came to the Lord and said 'I have to talk to you. We have some Kikuyus up here in heaven that are causing problems.

They're swinging on the pearly gates, my horn is missing, they are wearing Savco jeans instead of their white robes, they're riding pick up trucks instead of the chariots, and they're selling their halos to people for discount prices. Furthermore, they refuse to keep the stairway to Heaven clear, since they keep crouching down midway hawking their wings!

The Lord said, 'Kikuyus are Kikuyus. Heaven is home to all my children. If you want to know about real problems, call the devil.

' The Devil answered the phone, 'Hello? hold on a minute.' The Devil returned to the phone, 'OK I'm back. What can I do for you?'

Gabriel replied, 'I just wanted to know what kind of problems you're having down there.' The Devil said, 'Hold on again. I need to check on something.'

After about 5 minutes the Devil returned to the phone and said, 'I'm back. Now what was the question?' Gabriel said, 'What kind of problems are you having down there?' The Devil said, 'Man I don't believe
this.......Hold on.'

This time the Devil was gone 15 minutes. The Devil returned and said,'I'm sorry Gabriel, I can't talk right now. Those Kikuyus have put out the fire and are selling me a match

Remeber this, way back in 2005!!!! Guys Kumekucha warned you people. For those who did not read it its a reminder

"There is a lesson for President Kibaki here. He is increasingly becoming like Mr Moi during the 2002 elections. He is not yet paranoid, but his insensitivity could develop into ''political blindness''. Who knows how low he will have sunk by the 2007 elections? And this is what worries me.

Consider a hypothetical situation here. What would happen if President Kibaki decided to run for re-election in 2007 and lost? Would he and his men have the grace to hand over power peacefully? From the way they have behaved in the last one year, I doubt it. And where would that leave the country?

At the risk of sounding crazy, I want to suggest the following: If we thought that Mr. Moi would plunge the country into civil strife, he proved us wrong. Narc is the party to plunge the county into civil strife. You just have to listen to the FM stations and the call-in television programmes to see a pattern. From the name of the caller, you can almost predict what they will say and what side of the divide they will take. In a disputed election, such polarity would certainly take ugly proportions.”

kabila adui said...

Kanoo@12:47 has tabled some nice facts.

The dots can be connected for you (FACTS) in the following manner.

Note that the maize was sold by the newt (i.e. Fidel Castro Odinga) to southern sudan despite a ban on maize exports (fact). By snatching maize from the mouth of starving/dying Kenyans a neat profit of at least 300% was turned (a fact).

Now, awarding a tender to the highest bidder is not standard practice in the transparent administration of public affairs, not especially in the case of one Agwambo, who has time and again declared zero tolerance ( a fact). By selecting for the highest bidder maize was bought at 3 times its price per ton with the end result that slightly over 3 million bags LESS were purchased (fact). I will not mention the food shortage and starving Kenyans nor the identity of the highest bidder.

Given that Raila Odinga chairs the adhoc committee on food security (a fact and note that Kenyans are starving, STILL) and given that he's a very powerful man, prime minister no less (another fact), he should step aside to allow further investigations of these disturbing facts. I do hope that before he steps aside, that he'll comment on WHY exactly he fired one of his aides (another fact) and also provide a status report on the forensic audit into the NCPB he ordered (yet another fact).

It is really sad that the stuttering bumpkin attempted to dump on Ruto just to cover up for his and son's transgressions. He and Luo ODM MPs failed to turn up in support of Ruto during a critical motion. That will not be disappear quickly.

There might be similar things going on in the oil industry. Maybe the watchdog MARS group can shed light on this one? ;))


Ps: and the name is KABILA ADUI, you have to be reminded even though a major rallying cry for the messiah and his troops a little while ago. Don’t mutilate my name.

I originally, had reservations when S.O. became a blogger on K'cha.
Time has validated these reservations.
K'cha has lost credibility as a reputable blog.

I am ashamed that I have to stoop to pinprick of irritation at the level of hatred amongst all Kenyans. To begin with, there's the problem of wearily having to answer my friends plaintive question each time a significant tribal question is flung on my face: why cant we have Kenya not Kikuyu, Luo ,Luhya chieftaincy? The answer lies with lack of oversight and selflessness when looking at issues affecting Kenya. When anything happens we are clouded by tribes not personality. At the moment we are obsessed with Uhuru‘s 9billion saga, dwelling on his tribe not Uhuru as a person. Assuming it was a scam, would any Kikuyu unless with vested interest want Uhuru to have done that? Hell no!! And was he sent by fellow Kikuyus , hell no!!!. So what are we left with, opportunistic, self drive to satisfy ego in the name of castigating others without considering how it affects others.

The answer is simple. At a personal level, few people are as charismatic, capable and ruthless as we are witnessing now, against the expectation we are driving the nail of tribalism deeper everyday which will haunt us and our children. But there's history too. Not all Kikuyus carry the stain of crime, thuggery a large proportion would like to live with the rest of Kenyans in peace. The anti-tribes should be avoided at all cost since it will not contribute positively to our history.
The ethnic hatred simmering in our midst will bring centuries of guilt to bear with the devastating impact that Kenyans will never forget for generations. For the most part, we have been here for less than 50 years of independence will be brought down to its knees through myopia, spite and hatred. We should at this time distance ourselves from the historic crimes that still torment us from 2007 elections alongside misdeeds of the past regimes.

There's also a part of me that feels indignant on behalf of other Kenyans that makes me an apologist to crimes am not part of though identified with. When I wake up every morning I am reminded of my rich culture or background negatively not how it contributes towards uniting us and bringing all cultures for prosperity of our nation.

The question to us all is whether we represent a fundamental change in Kenya. Many are desperate to believe. For all sundry we represent the past that we often criticise since we are living proofs of tribal bigotry, conservative and epicentre of empty rhetoric.

The problem that these challenges manifest is that their ambitions are necessarily limited to piecemeal concessions. They can only wield power as long as they remain victims—downtrodden and excluded. The moment they succeed, they lose the power of moral suasion.

What Kenya needs in plenty are bargainers? These are Kenyan leadership figures who strike quite a different deal by saying to other tribes: "I will not use Kenya’s horrible past against you, if you will promise not to use my tribe against me." That way, everybody wins; human beings often feel flattered and win back what we would call “tribal innocence”. We have to appreciate that all of us acquire freedom from the cage of the tribe. Starting with Jaramogi Odinga, Dedan Kimathi, Paul Ngei, Achieng’ Oneko, Bidad Kagia, a series of our forefathers who sustained a brilliant crossover bargain and could be compared to: Poitier, King, Bill Cosby and, quintessentially, Oprah Winfrey.

So which Kenyan bargainers would be like Obama? Remember when he recounted the story about how he dealt with the arrest of a high school buddy for drugs. Obama's (white) mother marched into his room demanding details. According to Obama's own account, he gave her "a reassuring smile, and patted her hand and told her not to worry." This, he wrote, was "usually an effective tactic" because people "were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves… such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn't seem angry all the time."

From our perspective, all this is puzzling. It is almost impossible unless you've experienced it to grasp how profoundly tribalism is shaping our daily encounters in Kenya. When watching TV in our living rooms (for those who can afford the luxury) we yearn for hot news, namely who would be sacked, lynched or God forbid died in a plane crash. Our propensity to rumours and conspiracy theory has bedevilled us into peddling lies and reinventing calamities for others.

As for our greedy politicians, this separation makes the guilt associated with yoke they have subjected us to, everyday manipulated and reminded that we belong to them not ‘us’. But if all of us could see fellow Kenyans beyond the tribal banner, then maybe we may imagine that King's post-tribal nirvana has arrived. A vote for change in any upcoming election away from ethnic divide is a pain-free negation of our own tribalism.

For the poor underclass and beyond our selfish leaders there may be the latest messiah, but there is anecdotal evidence that where different cultures have prospered to the extent that they are grimly competing for jobs and property amongst themselves, they don't buy tribalism. I would guess that this is because the people who actually experience just how far Kenya remains from post-ethnic harmony are those who think freely and love Kenya.

The major shift should be used for the nation’s political advantage without having any impact on inequality. This is another tall, charismatic, ‘tribless’ approach endeavouring to dislodge the poor rich divide from its dominant position in Kenyan public life. The post election violence in 2007 should have been a wakeup call to heal the age-old fracture. In a sense, this may establish that we aren't what we used to be—and that placating this is as important as any other national agenda. What the75% poor Kenyans hope for is a lift from squalor conditions they are subjected to by chieftain/tribal cahoots.

Do I say more but I am proud of my background, being a Luo but first and foremost I see myself as a Kenyan and will never stoop to cheap talk/bashing others criticising their actions whipping tribal undertones. I love the Kenyan in me and will never at any time be dissuaded from fighting our people’s course. My advice to Kenyans is to desist from parachuting into discussions without thinking of how it will impact on others. With the upsurge of the small village we are in now, thanks to internet the braha it has brought is a case of thoughtless paradigms that surmount to lack of foresight/vision. How much do we contribute to our employers in terms of time when we spend cumulatively half day on the net hawking hatred?
