Raila tour of US puts Kenya in the spotlight
By KEVIN KELLEY and KENNETH OGOSIA,Posted Saturday, May 16 2009 at 19:33
http://www.nation.co.ke/News/-/1056/598962/-/item/0/-/qki7i5z/-/index.html

Prime Minister Raila Odinga leaves the country on Monday for a three-week tour of the United States.

It will be the first time that Mr Odinga is visiting the US after the election of President Obama, whose father was Kenyan.

It was, however, not clear whether Mr Odinga will travel to Washington D.C., the seat of government or meet US President Barack Obama.

The White House could not confirm whether Mr Odinga would meet President Obama or any of his senior advisers during the visit.

Kenya’s ambassador to the US, Mr Peter Ogego, said the prime minister was not expected in Washington.

“Raila isn’t coming to Washington at all,” Mr Ogego said.

Denying that money exchanged hands to influence MPs, Mr Too asked: “How can you bribe somebody like Raila (Odinga)? I used my negotiating skills across the political divide to embrace radicals like James Orengo and Paul Muite,” he said.

Still not ONE post from Kumekucha on the Raila family maize-scandal? Can't we have balance on this blog, why the Raila Odinga cultism? You probably think he is a clean-angel straight from heaven. LOL, are you guys supposed to bring change to Kenya when you are covering up for Raila Odinga and friends? what a joke! Kumekucha clearly wont bring an ounce of change to Kenya, just from one Kibaki failure to Raila-cult.

KenyaLuv said...

That maize that was released through coercion from Prime Minister Raila Odinga's office could potentially poison thousands of Kenyans but Kumekucha is silent. Why? Is it because most of the maize has ended up in Central Province? Come clean Kumekucha, why the cover-up?

yes lets come clean- sources confirm- the maize was looked up in Mombasa but guess what as usual the central thieves thought why not steal it an sell it in "central province and make some money(Beth Mugo and team) not knowing that they will be found out..

Please point your finger to th culprits- why is the maize only found in central? did Raila order it too be shipped there?

why not ask beth Mugo. she is the one who said the maize had disappeared and now it has been found in central province? who released it to be shipped there for sell?
wacha tu na mambo bado.. kikuyu's don't even recognise conterminated maize is bad for their health of their own tribesmen all they think of is how much money can they make while poisoning thier own tribesmen.
does that shock the rest of kenyan? no! from Kibaki the othaya thief to all his cronies.. stealing is in their blood

so shut up and go ask Beth Mugo while she is selling contaminated maize in central province or do you still support her while she tries to poison central province? shame on you.

What is going on at the Kenyan Embassy in Washington DC?


An anonymous user has posted this information on a Kenyan discussion forum regarding the goings-on at the Kenya Embassy. We have reached out to our contacts in DC and will stay on this story until we know what is going on:

[BEGIN QUOTE]

Wananchi wenzangu, I would like to bring to your attention a mega scandal that has been unearthed at the Kenya Embassy in Washington DC. As many of you may know, the scandal as reported here a while back involves the dissapearance of close to $2.5 Million in over a period of three years.

Most of these funds are collections from visa fees, passport renewal fees, funds allocated for settlement of newly posted staff, and funds for office renovation.

As Ogego and many diplomats in the DC office prepare to leave following rumors of an imminent reshuffle, those invloved in this scandal hatched a plan six weeks ago on how to cover up their criminal activities before a new team comes in.

HERE ARE THE FACTS

1. Six weeks ago, The Ambassador HE Peter Rateng Oginga Ogego travelled to Kenya on what many thought was a recall. This trip was merely a sideshow and upon arrival in Nairobi, the Hon. Ambassador met senior officials to discuss how corruption at the Embassy could be covered.

It has been confirmed that most of the recipients of the $2.5 million are senior officials at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs based in Nairobi. These senior officials are said to have been frequent visitors in Washington DC and are part of a clique that forms a secret and yet a hard operational financial clandestine group within the government circles who are adamant that the next appointee to Washington MUST be one of “their own” in order to continue with their corrupt activities at the Embassy.

2. As the Ambassador was in Nairobi, it was agreed by senior official at the Foreign Affairs Ministry that “action” had to be taken fast and swiftly. It is at this point that “Senior” auditors from the Ministry were dispatched to Washington. Before departure to DC, these auditors had already received strict instructions on what they were suppose to do while in Washington and who their target was. While enroute to Washington, the Deputy Ambassador summoned their “target” and mentioned things such as “you know the money can buy you many flats in Nairobi.”

The “target” was shocked and it was during this meeting that he was informed that he was being sent on unpaid leave together with two other employees who were given cosmetic temporary suspensions. These two have since gone back to work.

3. While the Hon. Ambassador was still in Nairobi, an order came from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs asking the Chief of Protocal (PM) at the Embassy to draft a letter to the US Immigration Department informing them that the “target” was nolonger an employee of the Kenya Embassy and his visa together with the defendants needed to be revoked and sent back to Kenya immidiately.

This operation between Nairobi and Washington is seen as an operation to take the “target” back to Nairobi to face dubious charges as the corruption at the Embassy is covered. You are all aware what happens when one is falsely accused and lands in the hands of the Kenyan Justice system which most of us don’t have faith in.

4. It is sad to announce, that last Wednesday, the “target” was picked up by US Immigration officials together with his elder son and detained for one day at a local detention facility in Virginia, and given three weeks to leave the country.

The Chief of Protocal at the Embassy (PM) is said to be in Nairobi awaiting the arrival of the “target” so as to get him locked up immediately so that this corruption scandal at the Embassy may not be unearthed.

HOW DOES MONEY GET LOST AT THE EMBASSY ?

Here is how The Embassy cashes in.

1. Have you ever asked yourself why the Embassy insists on payment by money order ONLY? It is because money orders do no require the “payee” field to be filled. Meaning anyone can deposit the money order in any account.

If payment is made by personal checks, there is paper trail and the owner through online banking can tell who cashed the check. This is the main reason the Embassy does not accept personal checks, not because of fear of bouncing. Cashiers checks MUST be pre filled with the payee. Here again the Embassy does not want this because people maybe wary of why a check for service rendered should be written to an individual.

2. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs allocates funds for newly appointed diplomats however, these funds are diverted to individual pockets. This is how.

Once the Embassy purchases household items for incoming diplomats, these items are recycled over and over again BUT, each time a new employee receives the items he/she has to mark them as new….makes sense? And the money for the new arrival is pocketed…it has happened over and over…..

…to be continued..

That maize that was released through coercion from Prime Minister Raila Odinga's office could potentially poison thousands of Kenyans but Kumekucha is silent. Why? Is it because most of the maize has ended up in Central Province? Come clean Kumekucha, why the cover-up?

Our views:

(a) Where was the President when the maize was being released? Doesn't the president get briefing every morning from the NSIS?

Since this maize was imported as a matter of emergency, we would expect the president to be on top of things such as these. And, if he was not, then, we are in trouble.

(b) If anything has been released without following the law, ask KRA, and especially the Customs department. If you have ever worked at the ports, you would know how things work at the ports.

This consignment was/is in a bonded warehouse. That means, if it was removed without KRA's approval, it is first and foremost a criminal offence and it is up to KRA to follow up and not this nonsense we are reading from you and Mututho's of this world. We are yet to hear KRA following up the matter.

And, if you checked, you would see that, KRA falls under the Ministry of Finance. Thus, there is no way, and we speak from experience at the ports, such a cargo would be released without knowledge of Commissioner Waweru and the Minister of Finance.

If Raila caused this maize to be released, then, he must be a very powerful person who is controlling KBS, KRA, Ministry of Finance and even the President.

KenyaLuv said...

Youre all missing the. The point is Kumekucha REFUSED to post on the Raila maize scandal when it was going on. They turned a blind eye to it even when it was in the news and the media. Yet they are so quick to post on Uhuru and Njue? why did Kumekucha say nothing about the Raila maize scandal when it was on people's lips? Oh... let me guess he is a perfect human who should never be questioned or talked about in a negative light. what happened to transparency and accountability?

KenyaLuv said...

It is scary to think Raila can become president when we have Kenyans who are NEVER going to question any of his actions.Even though you support Raila, that does not mean you never question him or inquire deeper into what hes doing. You might as well become a robot. If he wants to becoem prezz he needs to be ready to be grilled at every turn.

1. did she care for her fellow kikuyus that is maize was contaminated Nope!!

money was the key.. how foolish are you to even imagine that Raila Even control maize delivered in central province:) are they suggesting Raila is more powerful than Kibaki? that Kibaki can't look after his own people in central? by making sure contaminated maize is not feed to them? do you see how silly they sound?

just follow the money- it will lead you to the kikuyu mafia controlled by Kibaki and goons.. the thieves will sell or execute their own mothers given a chance

Thanks for the information

Peter Ogego(ambassador) stole from the kenya embassy in Canada to while he was serving there, and the story is kibaki protected him then too

Audits must be made on the Embassy in Canada and they will be shocked staffers there claim
Ogego went on a shopping spree with his wife only (:Italian) designers and lavish life style

His kids even attended a private school in Canada i hear while most of the other Ambassadors from most countries their Kids attend the the regular public schools in Canada

how did Ogego afford to pay when you check the the tuition fees for private boarding schools in Canada it ranges from $34,000 fees not including books, uniforms -to $50,000

Where did Peter Ogego get all this money??

to my understanding he wasn't a rich man when he left Kenya for his post to Canada

KIBAKI GOVERNMENT MUST ANSWER TO THIS.. WE HAVE IDP'S SUFFERING IN KENYA AND THEY ALLOW PETTER OGEGO TO STEAL FROM KENYANS?? SND NOW HE HAS DONE THE SAME IN WASHINGTON??

OGEGO MUST BE CALLED TO ANSWER TO THE PEOPLE OF KENYA WHERE THE MONEY WENT.. AUDITS MUST BE DONE AND HE MUST BE JAILED FOR STEALING

HIS USING A SCAPE GOAT WILL NOT WORK THIS TIME ROUND.. NA NIMESEMA!!

AMBASSADOR PETER OGEGO THE THIEVE MUST BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE

KenyaLuv (you should consider changing your "name" to Raila hater),

The Maize scandal that you are trying to smear Raila with was a knee jerk creation of the Raila hating Panua mongrel brigade.

It was a case of pumbavu imagination driven by Raila hatred gone crazy, silly and mad.

Raila absolved himself of claims that he had released the contaminated maize. Even the KRA boss - Waweru - wrote to Raila on the 13th of May confirming that all the Maize was safe and secure in the storage silos at Mombasa.

This pumbavu obsession of hating Raila will take you nowhere! It may just give you (self inflicted) ulcers and high blood pressure, increase your medical bills and shorten your lifespan by 10 years.

I hope you get the picture, this hate you have for Raila will end up consuming you at your expense.

we diaspora in Washington are looking for all the information we can get to link him to the theft and if there is a pattern that shows that he has done it else where then this is precisely what we need

I'm glad i was passing through this blog and found this information

this time the PNU Government branch will not be able to protect him, we will through him out of the embassy,

Peter Ogego is worse than a mafia warlord he is one of the most hated ambassadors ever in Washington and to think he is a thief protected by the government it just pisses us more.

good work pal and thanks please if you have anymore information on Ogego keep posting I hope some of our members of parliament read this blog and get to parliament to ask this same questions

audits should be done by independent committee for both Canada and Washington, I'm really tired of people stealing from us and nobody in the government is awake -

opps sorry at least the Uhuru mini-budget was caught in time..

no foreign affais officer should be allowed to handle this audits! period.

Mungiki: The untold story of a gang reinvented

The proscribed Mungiki sect is on a recruitment drive, targeting anyone from primary school pupils to unemployed youth, even as the Government announced it was stepping up its crackdown.

But the weekend pledge by President Kibaki to act on all illegal militias is yet to translate into a concrete action plan.

The police response so far has been muted, triggering the emergence of vigilante groups that pose equal threat on national security as the criminals they seek to rout out.

In a major investigation, The Standard unearths the sect’s new recruitment methods and their ethos that glorify extortion, while recording first-hand the tales of pain where parents witness the killing of their children.

Business has all but stalled in many of the townships in Central Province, while suspicions have divided communities. The question is, when will this madness end?

http://www.eastandard.net/InsidePage.php?id=1144014454&cid=159&

The 48 rules of power

The Mafia-like Mungiki gangs operate using a set of rules. These are used during oathing ceremonies of new recruits.

Never work if others can work for you

Let your enemies be close to you for it will be easy to ambush them.

Finish you enemies both in body and in spirit

Live like a friend, work like a spy

Keep people guessing and remain mysterious

Never trust anyone

Live without taking a definite form or shape

Pretend to be a fool, you’ll discover the fools

Never rest on your laurels, it is dangerous

When beaten, always retreat

Always strive to know peoples’ weaknesses

To catch fish, you must be prepared to step into the water

Be a man of action rather than arguments

Keep transforming yourself

Let people view you as an example of good things.

When you take on a task, know when to stop

It is dangerous to be viewed as a perfect person

People will be jealous and strive for your downfall

Never try to change at once.

Do not bank much on laws and regulations as all these are bound to change

Strive to transform your weaknesses into strengths

If you are not sure about anything, don’t try to do it.

Doubts and hestitation will block your success.

To be fearful is very dangerous.

Wrongs done in bravery can easily be put right. No one respects cowards.

‘The Hague’: The open court where only death sentences are passed

An eerie silence hangs over "The Hague", the spot where vigilantes have been operating a kangaroo court and executing Mungiki suspects in a gory fashion.

It is a disused field meant for a cattle dip at Kamuiru village, about three kilometers from Kagumo town in Kirinyaga district.

Two cows nibble at the short grass oblivious of The Standard crew.

Ashes of past victims burned to death are scattered on the ground and are testament to the atrocities that have been committed here in the last few months.

[img]http://www.eastandard.net/images/monday/nh_180509_01.jpg[/img]
"The Hague" in Kamuiru village a few kilometres from Kigumo town in Kirinyaga District, where suspected vigilante groups parade and sentence to death suspected Mungiki members.

[PHOTO: STANDARD]

The vigilantes, who also call themselves "The Hague" (in reference to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands) have been lighting bonfires and roasting their victims even as they plead for mercy.

So far no suspects has been to "The Hague" and been found innocent or granted amnesty. When on trial, suspects are made to stand on these ashes, then tortured to reveal if they are Mungiki members.

Bloodied clothes of those already killed litter the scene next to a black patch where the fires have consumed vegetation. A crow flies into the field from a nearby try and makes as it to land but then changes its mind and flies away.

Two shirts, a pair of trousers and a red cap that belonged to one of those slain earlier litter the scene.

This seemed to confirm accounts that victims are first ordered to strip naked before they are brutally murdered. Also at the scene are large stone blocks used to batter suspects to death.

Cold chills

More than half of those killed by vigilantes were executed at this spot.

A visit to the scene sends cold chills down the spine.

On noticing strangers, young men, who are probably spies, emerge from nearby farms and quietly disappear.

The obvious reaction for a stranger is to run for dear life.

Trials at the kangaroo court are witnessed by hundreds of vigilantes who keep watch armed with machetes, clubs and whips.

Residents said suspects are given little chance to defend themselves and are tortured during the trial sessions, mainly carried out in the dead of night.

However, some of the vigilante members say they have been forced to join, where they are then taken on execution orgies at night.

At Karuko village near Kagumo, a resident said all men aged between 18 and 45 years are woken up at night and forced to go round hunting for mungiki members.

"If they find you asleep, they whip you and then force you to join them," he said.

http://www.eastandard.net/InsidePage.php?id=1144014451&cid=159&

"I delivered my son to his killers"

[img]http://www.eastandard.net/images/monday/news_180509_01.jpg[/img]

"Sometime last month, my son told me that he feared for his life because a vigilante group accused him of being a member of Mungiki and wanted him killed. He wanted to run away from home, but I urged him not to because he would explain his case. We know the vigilantes well and some are our neighbours, so I believed they would hear us out."

The boy, who was to sit his KCSE exam this year, confided that it was true he had been recruited into Mungiki, says his father.


Clubs and other weapons police recovered from suspected Mungiki members along Karatina–Nyeri road hours before the Kirinyaga massacre.

Wanjohi said: "He told me, Dad, I have been scared all this time. I’m sorry for letting you down."

He said sometime back, a boy from a neighbouring village laid a trap and led him and two other schoolmates into a Mungiki oath ceremony.

He was to take them to a homestead to borrow books but as soon as they entered the house, they were kidnapped and forced through the recruitment ritual.

Death threats


The 17-year-old Peter Kinyua, who was hacked to death after his father had been tricked that he would be forgiven if he confessed that he had joined Mungiki. [PHOTOs: STANDARD]

They were threatened with death if they ever leaked the secret.

On April 18, he and the other two boys were asked by the local vigilante group to go and explain how they had joined Mungiki.

They told the boys to go in the company of their parents and would be forgiven if they confessed.

He was scared but I told him ‘Be strong, I know they will forgive you."

Later in the day, I took his hand and led him to the vigilantes’ meeting. The boys explained how they had been forcibly recruited. But as soon as they confessed, the vigilantes’ leader said he had no powers to forgive. He said the boys must be taken to "The Hague" where their fate would be known.

("The Hague" is a spot near Kagumo town where several Mungiki suspects have been tried by a kangaroo court and executed.)

We followed the mob to "The Hague" where the overall leader said the boys must be killed.

They were kneeling down, crying out and begging to be spared but the leader said what he had ruled must be done.

I asked him ‘Do you truly want to spill my son’s blood? Would you make the same ruling if it was your own son?’

"By then, I had lost hope. The hurt I felt in my heart is something that will never go away. I knew that boy had done something wrong, but we are all humans and he had asked for forgiveness."

"When the gang was preparing to hack him, a few people said they did not want him killed at the spot and led him to another place. The other parents were with us too, so we followed them as they took the children away. The boys were crying."

Hacked to death

I looked at my son and he told me, ‘Dad, don’t worry.’

"I could not take it any more. The men were brandishing pangas and axes, so I looked at my son one last time and sneaked away. As I walked off, I heard them start hacking the boys.

"I couldn’t take the sound, so I started running in the rain and went home. I found his mother waiting up for me and told her they had killed our son. She cried the whole night."

Vigilantes who kill with equal force

On Monday last week, a blood-thirsty gang of vigilantes arrested Elvis Kibara, 22, accusing him of being a member of Mungiki.

They trussed him with ropes then rode in a convoy of motorbikes from his Karinga village to Kamuiru, where the vigilantes have been operating a kangaroo court they have cheekily named "The Hague".

The trial at the spot was swift and lasted only a few minutes. Forced to stand on the ashes of other suspects, burned alive before him, Karinga was found guilty and sentenced to death.

The vigilantes then asked the frightened man to choose his preferred mode of death and gave him three choices. He could choose to hang himself, to be hacked or to be set ablaze.

Kibara chose suicide.

But there was a hitch. A section of residents tired of continuous bloodletting at the spot urged the vigilantes to take the man elsewhere.

They took him to a roadside, selected a tree and gave him a rope with the noose ready so he could hang himself. Witnesses said the gang was cheering as Kibara climbed up the tree at around midday.

Pleas on deaf ears

He pleaded to be spared, saying he was an innocent man earning a living as a driver. But the gang had already smelt blood.

"He delayed to release the rope, and someone slashed his hand so he could let go," his mother Cecily Wanjiru said, citing witness accounts. "He died in great pain."

As Wanjiru’s son chocked to death, the vigilante gang exploded in wild cheering, even as two men stabbed him repeatedly just for the fun of it.

His final moments before death were horrific. When his lifeless body was brought down, it had nine stab wounds – six on the chest, one on the neck, hand and at the pelvis.

The activities of this gang are not isolated. Several vigilante gangs are rampaging through villages in Kirinyaga and have so far executed about 20 people in similar blood-chilling fashion.

Residents told of the atrocities committed by the gangs, which the Government has failed to stop despite pledges to do so.

Police, who have failed to dismantle Mungiki, appear to be spectators in the violence that some officers secretly admit to be supporting, despite the glaring abuse of suspects’ rights.

As residents plead with the police to stop vigilantes who have mutated into execution squads, there are claims they are operating with the full support of the government and local police.

The gangs are headed by "chairmen" who serve as judges at the trials. They are the ones who order the executions once suspects are found guilty, residents confided in us.

These chairmen are well known people, but none of them has been arrested or prosecuted. Interviews with several residents suggest the Government is an accomplice in the murders.

State interference

"I called our MP to ask him to call an end to the violence, but he told me a senior Government official had advised him to keep off the issue," said the father of one of the killed suspects.

Relatives of four of those butchered said they knew the killers, but police had not visited their homes to carry out investigations.

The vigilantes have spread fear and are threatening to disrupt the funerals of those they have killed. At Karinga village, young men have been warned against digging a grave for Kibara.

"They want him buried like a dog," Kibara’s mother said a week ago.

Residents are also questioning why the gangs are allowed to operate in broad daylight without police intervention.

Kabara’s arrest, trial and execution was conducted during the day and lasted about two hours, yet police never moved to stop the gang.

However, Central PC Kiplimo Rugut said it was difficult for police to investigate the deaths if those aggrieved fail to report.

"There would be no complainant in such a case," he said.

The PC said a new programme to turn the vigilantes into a disciplined, community-policing outfit has been launched.

A senior police official from police headquarters had been dispatched to Kirinyaga to organise the issue, said Rugut.

It is at "The Hague" that three students of nearby Mutitu Secondary School were butchered in an incident that has left their parents in anguish and residents of their Kabaru village sharply divided.

The killings, which were carried out by well-known people, have turned neighbour against neighbour and the small community is falling apart. One morning last month, the boys Peter Kinyua, 16, Jason Mwangi, 17 and Reuben Gachoki also aged 17 were asked to report to the local vigilante gang and explain their membership to Mungiki.

Together with their parents, they reported to the vigilante gang and explained how they were forcefully recruited to Mungiki and threatened with death if they failed to enlist.

Their parents told The Standard that the boys explained to the vigilantes that they were lured by another boy to a homestead where they had gone to borrow books. But as soon as they entered the house, they were grabbed, beaten up and forced to go through a Mungiki oath.

The vigilante gang had promised the parents that their sons would be forgiven since they had confessed and had promised to walk out of Mungiki.

However, as soon as the boys confessed, they were taken to "The Hague," sentenced to death and hacked with machetes.

"They lied to us as if we were small babies," said Gachoki’s mother, Mary Muthoni.

She added: "When a child goes astray, do you kill him or do you hold his hand and show him the right way? Most of those who killed my son are parents too."

She said Gachoki and the others should have been forgiven since they were forced into Mungiki and had promised to quit.

The Standard was told many young men had been forced to join Mungiki against their wish. Muthoni said on the day he was killed, Gachoki woke up early and prepared to go and meet the people who had promised to forgive him. He appeared happy that finally, the heavy load he had been carrying would fall off his shoulders, she added.

"He spent the whole day in his room praying," she said, standing next to the fresh grave of her slain son.

There are claims that police have not shown interest in investigating the murders, and are concealing deaths caused by vigilantes.

Dangerous criminal

Kibara’s father, Mr Dioniso Kithaka, said when he complained that his son had been murdered, he was told he (Kibara) was a criminal.

He showed The Standard a post mortem request form indicating his son was a gangster.

In explaining the circumstances of the death, the form written by a police officer says: "The deceased was lynched by the public after having been identified as a dangerous robber."

Gang uses force to get new recruits

Evidence is now available showing that Mungiki operates with a chilling set of rules and a strict code of conduct.

The Standard exclusively obtained a set of 48 rules used by the gangs in their oath ceremonies, which lay bare the mysteries of the sect and its unpredictable mode of operation.

The Standard also saw the membership cards the gangs have been issuing members.

"Your actions must be unpredictable and should appear unplanned, to create confusion leaving people wondering why you acted the way you did. The aim is to cause fear," says one of the rules written in Kikuyu.

Mungiki, an underground, criminal movement of mainly youthful Kikuyu men has taken root across Central, Nairobi and parts of Rift Valley Provinces.

It is known for its gory execution style including beheading, dismembering their victims and leaving their heads hoisted on sticks.

A preview of the commandments offers insight into the operations of the sect known to strike without warning and when least expected.

"Whenever you take a discernible form, you become vulnerable and can easily be finished off. The best way not to take a definite shape, be like water," says another rule, further revealing the mysteries of the sect.

Personal survival

Most of the rules revolve around personal survival, alertness, courage and conquering tactics.

The rules urge members to spy and always know what is happening around them, and… to extort.

"Never work if others can work for you," states another rule, explaining the reasoning behind extortion rings operated by the gang members.

And the mafia-like gangs have resorted to brutal methods of forcing young men to join their illegal outfit, including blackmail, violence and death threats.

In their brutal recruitment campaign, one man in Nyeri had his arm sawed off when he declined the gang’s advances, but indications are that hundreds of others have enlisted for fear of being killed.

Forced marriage

In Kirinyaga, a distraught father told how a Mungiki gang ordered his son to marry a woman he did not even love.

In an unusual form of blackmail, the man was forced to enlist into Mungiki as the only way of escaping the forced union.

And in an unusual turn of events, vigilante groups that are cropping up in the area to counter the Mungiki menace have made the mess murkier.

Parents of three schoolboys, students of Mutitu Secondary School, who were bludgeoned to death by a vigilante gang on suspicion that he belonged to Mungiki, said last week their sons had confessed to having been forcibly enlisted.

There is also evidence that Mungiki is also recruiting schoolgirls, a sharp departure from the past where only men were sworn in.

The gangs are also engaging in oath ceremonies right under the noses of police officers deployed to track down members and stem runaway crime.

The recruitment is happening in the backdrop of the brutal murder of 29 people in Gathaithi-Kiangumara village in Nyeri East three weeks ago by a suspected Mungiki gang.

It appears the gangs have taken to the new methods to shore up membership in the face of the crackdown.

The brutal tactics resemble those of the Sabaot Land Defence Force, the militia group in Mt Elgon that slashed off peoples’ ears and fingers to force them into submission.

Defy crackdown

Interviews with scores of youth in villages in Nyeri and Kirinyaga indicate despite an ongoing crackdown, the illegal gangs are bubbling.

Residents said those recruited are mainly young, jobless youths, but schoolboys and girls are also joining the murderous gangs bound together by oaths of secrecy.

At his home in Kanjuri village, in Nyeri East District Daniel Mwai said his hand was chopped off for refusing to enlist into Mungiki.

Before he was attacked, Mr Mwai, 32, said he had been lured into an oath ceremony last month where he was asked to drink raw blood but he declined. The gang waylaid him days later and chopped off his hand.

"I stared at my hand as it dropped to the ground. I fell down in deep pain," said Mwai.

Before escaping, they stuffed tobacco snuff into his mouth.

However, scores of other young men have not been bold enough to fend off Mungiki’s advances and indications are that they have enlisted in their hundreds.

At Karuko village near Kagumo town in Kirinyaga, a man said a Mungiki gang member ordered his son to marry a woman he did not love.

The woman was said to be a sister to a Mungiki member.

He said when his son declined, he was kidnapped, beaten up and taken into a forested grove. He was threatened with death if he did not join.

"Later, another group appeared and said they would offer him protection from the first gang if he joined Mungiki. He told me he feared being killed, so he enlisted," said the man who asked not to be named for his own safety.

Little did his son know that by doing so he was jumping from the frying pan into the fire. Now, his son is on the run from vigilantes who have vowed to kill him.

Two weeks ago, a vigilante group raided the home at night, demolished his house and set the debris ablaze.

Adding to the case of the three slain schoolboys of Mutitu are two schoolgirls arrested by police at a Mungiki oath ceremony in Mununga village in Kirinyaga four days ago.

The girls, both students at local secondary schools, were arrested in a group of seven other men as they underwent a recruitment ritual involving drinking what is suspected to be human blood.

Outgoing Kirinyaga OCPD Herbert Khaemba said several others had already taken the oath before police arrived to find the seven. In the house were found the blood, cowrie shells and crocodile teeth.

Happening at a time when contingents of police officers have swarmed villages in Kirinyaga, the recruitment appears to be a bold show of defiance by the gangs.

Several trucks laden with armed officers of the crack General Service Unit are patrolling villages backed by the Rapid Deployment Unit, a specially trained squad of Administration Police.

Mr Khaemba, however, insisted police were in charge.

"I’m urging the few remaining sect members to surrender since there’s nowhere to hide. These gangs will be eradicated from our midst once and for all," he said.

However, the recruitment of the youth and young children has raised concerns about the future of coming generations.

"They have even turned to primary schools where they are forcing pupils to join them," said a primary school head from Kirinyaga District.

Maize mess: Raila explains puzzle

By Standard team

Controversy over contaminated maize allegedly in circulation deepened with police in Central Province confiscating tonnes of maize as the Prime Minister’s office issued a statement saying desperate politicians were trying to taint him.

Yesterday’s statement said: "Rumours of bad maize being sold in the market are cheap propaganda spread by desperate politicians looking for something to keep them afloat."

Mr Raila Odinga said the claims, which began with Public Health Minister Beth Mugo, border on recklessness.

"It is causing unnecessary panic among wananchi and the correct facts need to go out to the people," he said.

In the statement read by his spokesman Denis Onyango, Raila told those trying to fight him to seek other avenues.

Still detained

At the same time, a grain-handling company denied the unfit consignment had been released. Grain Bulk Handlers Ltd (GBHL) Chairman Mohamed Jaffer said the 6,200 metric tonnes detained in his silo have never been released.

"As far as I am concerned, the maize is still in the silo. I do not know anything to do with the maize which has been seized in Kirinyaga or anywhere else," said Mr Jaffer.

He appealed to those in doubt to contact Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) officials in charge of the consignment.

But Gender Minister Esther Murugi said Raila owed Kenyans an explanation.

"He should tell Kenyans how these bags of maize from South Africa have found their way to local stores, even after strongly claiming that the maize imported from down South was still at the port of Mombasa," said Ms Murugi.

PNU GOONS WITH THEIR SENILE LEADER MUST BE DESPERATE- KENYANS WILL THOUGH OUT ALL THOSE THIEVES COME NEXT ELECTION WAIT AND SEE. AFTER THE DEATHS AND SLAUGHTER OF INNOCENT KENYANS IN DEC 2007- THIS PNU FOOLS HAVE NO CHANCE EVEN IF THEY DRESSED UP AND HAD COSMETIC SURGERY TO CHANGE THEIR FEATURES- THEY ARE KNOWN = MPUMBAVU


This "contaminated" maize story is just turning into another PNU fiasco. My goodness, the lengths these people would go to fight Raila should actually frighten the country. This is dangerous stuff.

Lets stick to the facts for a second.

One, some of the traders whose maize has been seized and business possibly ruined forever showed certificates issued by the KEBS showing the maize in their possession was certified as fit for human consumption. Unless someone is issuing fake KEBS certificates it appears to me that the government is actually harassing and molesting genuine business people trying to make a living.

Two, the PM presented a letter from the Director of Kenya Revenue Authority, Mr. Waweru stating all the so called contaminated maize is at the silos and under their supervision. Raila is not a watchman at Kilindini harbour. He does not personally guard stored maize. He has to rely on what the people charged with responsibility for that tell him. What else is th ePM supposed to do? Stop everything he is doing and become a gate keeper of stored maize.

Three, the traders said they have been selling the same maize for a month now. They said so far no they have received no complaints. There has been no report of sickness or deaths. In the past we have had cases of actual deaths from contaminated maize with very little being done by the government.

Fourth, it is quite telling that Saitoti was able to mobilize hundreds or may be thousands of cops to seize maize from traders within hours and yet when Mungiki attacks and kills tens of Kenyans there are no cops to be seen. What is the priority of our police force? Why are the Kenyan police once agin being turned into private vigilantes for PNU political mercenaries?

Fifth, what happens if it turns out that the whole thing is a fraud and the traders actually have legit maize which they bought with assurances from the government that what they were buying was good for consumption? Will the government compensate the traders for the lose.

And lastly this thing has cause d a lot of panic among the citizenry. What if it is all a hoax? Is that th eprice Kenyans have to pay for a dysfunctional government?

In any sensible government the PM should be working closely with the ministry of public health and the police to protect citizens from any harm. In Kenya they are all hooting each other. How long must Kenyans continue to endure this foolishness?

Let me say this, the price our country has paid because of the war against Raila by a bunch of tribal chauvinists is beyond measure. They wrecked the constitutional reforms to fight him and the rest of the nation and they failed miserably at a terrible cost to the nation and its people. They stole a whole election to fight Raila and stick it to Kenyans and the cost still is still alive with us. Thousands were killed, hundreds of thousands displaced and a nation was scarred forever.

My question to PNU folks; how much more does our country has to pay to satisfy their war against Raila Amolo Odinga and the millions of Kenyans who support him and the political party of which he is one of the leaders. Is there a price too high for this madness? Please, spare our country any more of this lunacy. We have had enough for ten lifetimes.

And to Raila; why on earth are Kenyans spending millions keeping rotten maize in storage? Those keeping this maize stock are not doing it for free. What does it take to destroy a bundle of bad maize? If I was the PM I would have this maize stock destroyed like yesterday. In any case if that maize is in storage it is going to find its way into the market. Lets quit joking around.

Raila: Bad maize not from port
BY BERNARD MOMANYI

NAIROBI, Kenya, May 17 - Prime Minister Raila Odinga has dismissed reports that the contraband maize recovered in parts of Central Kenya was the same that was declared unsafe at the Mombasa Port.

Through his Spokesman Dennis Onyango, the premier said in a statement sent to newsrooms on Sunday that ‘he has read mischief’ in circulating media reports of contraband maize said to be on sale in parts of Central Kenya and Nairobi provinces.

“There are also subtle attempts to link this sale to and question the Prime Minister’s assurance to Kenyans last week that the bad maize is being held at the port and is not in circulation,” the statement read.

In Parliament last week and backed by numerous documents, the Premier had told MPs that the imported maize that was found to be unfit for human consumption is still being held at the port, contrary to reports that the maize was on sale in some parts of the country.

“The rumours of bad maize being sold in the market are cheap propaganda being spread by desperate politicians, who looking for something to keep them afloat,” Mr Onyango said in the statement.

In the past week, maize in South African-labelled bags were recovered in Murang’a and parts of Nairobi, raising fears that the recently imported maize could be in circulation even though it was declared unfit for consumption.

In Murang’a alone, some 60 bags of the maize packaged in 90-kilogramme bags were recovered at a warehouse where dozens of local businessmen confessed to police that they had been buying the commodity for sale.

The Prime Minister however said on Sunday that maize from the port silos only leaves there in National Cereals and Produce Board-branded bags.

The issue was first brought to light when Public Health Minister Beth Mugo demanded to know whether the maize had been destroyed.

“The idea that there is bad maize in the market, which first came from the Public Health Minister Beth Mugo, borders on recklessness and irresponsibility,” the statement from the PM’s office stated.

“It is causing unnecessary panic among wananchi and the correct facts need to go out to the people.”

He said that ‘all the institutions involved in the importation of maize, including the NCPB, Grain Bulk Handlers Limited (GBHL) and the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) have confirmed that the bad maize is at the port’.

Kumekucha, sopt the shameless deletion of my posts that point out your partisan posting of issues. And delete this one also in the same shameless manner. As the leading blog on social-political issues, you are no better that Njue and others you keep tainting. You serve partisan and biased interests, as your posts indicate, for they point at one side of the political divide. In fact, you are worse off that Njue and his ilk, for there is alot of pretense and hypocricy in your posts. We have no problem with shortcomings and problems being stated, but to build a prosperous and unified Kenya, we young people have to stop divisive actions and act with sole objectives of resolving the misdeeds from all sides of the political spectrum, not perpetuating the same divisions, hatred, biased analysis of issues etc. We young people can heal the nation, can change its destiny, but only when we refuse to be trapped in tribalism, refuse to worship or protect tribal chieftains, and keep the interests of our nation first, for that is the only way to safeguard the long term interests of our communities.

Minister seeks to break jinx at the Treasury

For politicians expecting Finance Minister, Uhuru Kenyatta, to tumble over the slippery docket, the anticipation is premature as he has reportedly sworn to stay and fight on to the last day of the Tenth Parliament.

Initially torn between transfer to another ministry and "losing face by holding on", The Standard on Sunday has established Uhuru has finally arrived at a "firm decision to fight from within".

Some allies of the minister had wanted the Gatundu South MP to opt out of the sensitive ministry to "salvage his image and stay on course" for the presidential race in 2012.

The thinking among Uhurus backers was Finance ministry is jinxed and is known for bringing down political careers. The example of a "humble and harmless" David Mwiraria is among those invoked to dissuade Uhuru.

But in a swift about-turn, a section of his backers are convinced the current hitch at the Treasury may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for the Deputy Prime Minister if he streamlines the ministry. This includes ridding it of "its current rot perpetuated by a cartel". "He must crack this one because if he fails or opts to be transferred, then he would have no business laying claim on the highest office in the land," observes former Gatanga MP David Murathe.

The Kanu politician believes Uhuru, who has finally been accorded the nod to engineer changes in the ministry, would succeed where many have failed. Other sources close to the minister maintain he was sabotaged in the case involving a discrepancy of over Sh10 billion.

"These fellows injected the errors in the Supplementary Budget and immediately sounded out the Mars Group to discredit Uhuru. It is the work of PNU/ODM-Kenya politicians bent on puncturing Uhurus presidential chances," our source confided. According to the source, the politicians used a cartel that has been at the Treasury for over two decades to execute its plot.

"It is the same team that Mudavadi tried to scuttle when he was Finance Minister after he unearthed the Goldenberg scam. But we are happy the (Chris) Okemo (Finance) Committee has recommended an audit of the last three years. We are sure a host of scams would be unearthed," he told The Standard on Sunday. Uhurus "typing error" story is, however, not convincing. The sequence of events that followed his confession of the error begs questions.

The Kanu leader was hosted by President Kibakis elder son Jimmy, three days later at a fund drive in Othaya constituency, Nyeri. Here, Jimmy advised Uhuru "not to worry" by assuring him his father (the President) was behind him.

But even more telling was Public Health Minister Beth Mugos decision to stir up yet again the storm about bad maize, a move pundits argue was meant to deflect attention from Uhuru.

And if either side wins we as the common men don't get to savor the victory,only they and their kin do, But if the battle, is lost we bear the brunt of it cause we have given them godlike reverence.
