We Are Now Two Nations Under God

The blind won't see it, but it's the sad reality.

Allow me to be candid again today. My retired old man always told me that when things go wrong don't sugarcoat anything. Talk candidly and talk with force until the wrong is corrected. I intend to do just that, but I must wonder about Kenya. Have we finally reached the point where nobody can bring this nation back to the unity we once experienced under the dictatorial regimes of Kenyatta and Moi?

Last week I watched with gloom as an event that should have been solemn was turned into just another sickening political show. I watched as the Kikuyu elite in the PNU led their pretend supporters like Noah Wekesa, Wokoli and others to the mass funeral of victims of the post election violence. In an instant an event that should have stopped each Kenyan for a few moments of reflection was turned into a Kikuyu affair. By so doing, I had to wonder what the intention of Kibaki and his handlers was. Were they calling for unity or reminding the Kikuyu Kingdom that there is an enemy out there? If so, was that funeral a call for Kenyan unity or a blatant call for GEMA unity? I'll let you be the judge.

The failure by the ODM, the coalition that brings Kenyans together against Kikuyu hegemony, also spoke volumes. What you saw was another case of Kenya being split right down the middle. You may choose to see it differently for fear of dealing with the consequences of the direction this nation is headed, but I see it for what it is. This nation is now two nations under God. We have Kenya, the bloc of six provinces that voted ODM and takes its marching orders from the Prime Minister. Then we have Central and Eastern, the bloc that voted PNU and now feels surrounded by an increasingly agitated fellow Kenyans.

I've taken calls from friends abroad who shake their heads at what they see as the inexplicable intransigence of Kenyans. Why are you so keen on destroying your country, they ask. But they don't understand. They don't understand that after the theft of elections last year, Kenya lost her innocence. We now feel just like another African country headed straight for the doldrums. Even that crap about Kenya being an island of peace sounds hollow to our doesn't hold the power to unite us for a purpose as it once did.

Two nations under God?

I invite you to a sober debate. I'm aware too that the Big Boys will come here in droves to dilute the impact of this post. They will fail. And may I just warn that I no longer use the blogger name Sam Okello, which the Big Boys have acquired as their own. What an honor.

We shall overcome, but what will it take?

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

Okello, we may not want to hear the truth, but someone must speak it. If we don't deal with these issues you place on the table, we are in big trouble. Kenya is now devided. I fear for my children.

Anonymous said...

Sam what did the Gikuyu poor folks do to you to warrant all this kind of blatant attacks against them. I mean how does the burning of a woman or that child inside that church help you as a person to give your continuous verbal attack of these people even in their graves. May their spirit haunt you like the way of it haunts those who killed them.

Your Kings said that the reason they failed to attend the burial was because Kibaki did not attend theirs. Sam can you remind us when your messiah Raila attended to the burial of innocent victims murdered heinously inside a building in Naivasha. Sam tell us maybe for me i just dont get it.

Again Sam plans are there to exhume the bodies of the dead which is being prepared by your godfathers. Please also don't forget to write about that defending it well.

Sam Okello,

It is suprising that today, the people spreading lies, propaganda, rumours and tribalism in it raw form are the young generation. This dotcom group spend valuable time and energy doing nothing productive than blogging crap. Look at this post for example. What value does it add other than speading hatred? Hasnt your thirst been quenched by the blood spilt in 2007? You travel across this nation and you find many idle poor young people waiting for a government to help them. Then you find this other group of middle class, YOU, who are fed, clothed, housed, bathed in good confort who then expect to be handed over the future leadership button. Then you wonder why old men still lead every sphere of your lives. How can the future of this nation be trusted on these spoilt brats? wont they self distruct?

Sam Okello,

The ignorant bastard with double speech. You now claim that Kenya was one nation under Kenyatta and Moi. Are you mad? Go read history again....The two dictators held together a deeply divided and tribal nation from the start. It has now shown/ manifested coz Obaks unlike his predicessors is a tribalist but not a dictator. How kenyans have a short memory. Moi put his 'incompetent' kaleos everywhere; kibaki put his 'competent' kiuks everywhere; Raila is doing the same with his 'learned' luos, look at all appointments in ODMs 'half' and you will see a trend of things to come. Same script different cast. Maybe you mean that you want Raila to be president so that he forcefully reunites a deeply divided country since like Kenyatta and Moi he is both a tribalist and dictator

But maybe thats why you dont have anything to do, no one wants an unproductive person! and if you are employed, have you heard of theft of company time? if you are self employed, ever wondered why your business is underperforming?

Stop demonizing whole tribes from your hiding place. Why don't you face this so called tribe or I guess you are a coward. You actually think you are so brave putting a post up and then running back into hiding. Sam Okello you are a hateful COWARD, don't fool yourself.

Little did I know I will find the usual dose of tribal Mashada nonsense packaged as "political analysis" by some quack publisher who has conned Marianne Brinner among others thousands of shillings. Oh dear, how sad, never mind it's all in a day of deception extraordinaire!

Raila was not assured of a VIP toilet in the burial and opted a boycott it. When will Kibaki learn and give this guy what he wants. How do you expect a VIP like Raila to share toilets with ministers like Saitoti. Kibs leave RAO alone until you start providing him with decent sanitation and protocol during public functions. Kiambaa victims mean nothing without observation of protocol

Have we finally reached the point where nobody can bring this nation back to the unity we once experienced under the dictatorial regimes of Kenyatta and Moi? Sam, the "unity" under Kenyatta and Moi were not sustainable. Anyone from Nyanza would tell you that. I am surprised that you of all people would think those days desirable.

I watched as the Kikuyu elite in the PNU led their pretend supporters like Noah Wekesa, Wokoli and others to the mass funeral of victims of the post election violence. In an instant an event that should have stopped each Kenyan for a few moments of reflection was turned into a Kikuyu affair.

If so, was that funeral a call for Kenyan unity or a blatant call for GEMA unity? I'll let you be the judge. I would have to agree with you here. If the Kiambaa atrocity merited special attention - I dont know how one decided that - then at the very least the President ought to have stayed away in order to not show insensitivity to victims in other areas.

What you saw was another case of Kenya being split right down the middle. You may choose to see it differently for fear of dealing with the consequences of the direction this nation is headed, but I see it for what it is. This nation is now two nations under God. We have Kenya, the bloc of six provinces that voted ODM and takes its marching orders from the Prime Minister. Then we have Central and Eastern, the bloc that voted PNU and now feels surrounded by an increasingly agitated fellow Kenyans. Look man, the faultlines always existed. PNU's charge is that the pre-election campaigning was "poisoned" with ethnocentrism by ODM. I ask you - does this argument have any merit? I believe it does but as much as I don't condone it, I do think that the political institution failed Kenya for 45 years - which is why for instance we don't have decent infrastructure in Nyanza and other parts while Central continues to move forward.

They don't understand that after the theft of elections last year, Kenya lost her innocence. We now feel just like another African country headed straight for the doldrums. Even that crap about Kenya being an island of peace sounds hollow to our doesn't hold the power to unite us for a purpose as it once did.

Indeed we did lose our innocence. What we saw was a gritesque powergrab. But dont't tell me ODM is clean either. Let us have hope. Kenya will adapt. We need to ensure the the current crop can deliver on the reform promise.

Isnt this the same for Luos, Kalenjins, kambas etc etc? Why do you have to mention a particular tribe? I am a Taita myself and i believe you are the generation anon 11.15 is talking about. The pretentious middle class who talk crap about other tribes and then greet them every morning, do business/ work with during the day and then have a beer with them in the evening at Seasons, K2, Ibiza etc as you support the same english team. Then you log in to KK and bash each other unknowingly. When PEV erupts again you will stay in your cozy homes in Buru, South C/B, Langata, West, highrise, Ngong road, mountain view etc etc and say "Kwani what happened to this country? how horrible? wawa why are maskini fighting and they share poverty?" etc etc
I am sure that you share friends from all tribes. Do you tell them this crap you post here as you hide behind KK?Do you honestly TRULY believe that any particular tribe benefits from corruption? Do you really practice your hate ie decline a job/ do business with a kiuk, or refuse to lay/ date a fly luo chick, or refuse to sit and support together Man-u, Arsenal with a Kaleo? etc etc
Why are we pretending and destroying ourselves with hatred? Why do we still do it and yet we know it is wrong?

Please i would urge you to stop living in the past. In my opinion, what has been done has been done. We need forward looking ideas. What i know for sure is that the future you are looking for Kenya will not be found in Kibaki, Raila and Kalonzo and their looting, tribal and subjective sycophants. I mean, did you guys watch/listen to Mututho and the ideas his committee had for food security and yet ODM MPs trashed the document without considering the salient points, just coz it touched on the integrity of their leader? There is also talk about PNU MPs having been bribed to stay away!

So Sam, by making this post you are just trying to lay blame on one side, yet both sides have their share of blame.

Again, another troubling fact that has been pointed out is why this blog comes to life when it is a Kikuyu (not PNU!)President/Minister/Priest involved in some misdeed. Are we lying to ourselves that all the other tribes/parties have no blemish?

What is the core objective of this blog? Is it a perpetuation of the past, tribalism and all, or to bring about ideas that will sort the mess we are in. Do we have people here with ideas on how we can get rid of tribalism/regionalism which are our biggest curses. What is the average age of the contributors here. If it is less than 35 then Kenya has no future.

KK/ Chris
I have previously debated on posts in KK on POLITICAL bias. Then TRIBAL bias/ attacks were strictly confined in the comments section and often moderated/ contained. However, lately there have been alarming increase in RAW TRIBALISM from your authors. The last about 4 posts have been unashamedly openly tribal without shame. You have allowed Sam, Taabu and commenters from both divides to continue raising tribal tempratures unessesarly. Now you are deleting comments but first you should delete entire article with clear tribal inclinations such as this. Ask yourself why PEV occurred, didnt we, before elections, do what we are just doing now? didnt we stay in our nice homes/ apartments when the fighting erupted? didnt we continue to call our friends from all tribes to see how they were doing. I ASK KK TO BAN WRITERS SUCH AS THESE. THIS KIND OF TALK IS WHAT CAUSED THE RWANDA GENOCIDE.
Sam, from you i ask for common sense, decency, and a sense on nationalism. Measure your words and clear you thoughts. Indeed some members of your tribe have disowned your views so please stop pretending to represent them or ODM. Please re-read the posts by anons 11.15 pm, 11,44 pm and 1.49 am which make a world of sense. Next time before you write...ask "how will this help the republic? How will it make the country move to the next level? will it solve our myrad of problems? will it get us out of the rut? how would i feel if the same was done/ said to me?"

Then, and only then, will this silly Kikuyu Mungiki/"Vigilantes" madness end.

Raila has been denied the much sought audience with Obama. He has severally been asked to provide reasons for this but every reason provided has been turned down as matters not requiring BHO direct attention. Instead he has been reffered to channel the matters through top diplomatic channels available. Raila is said to be so frustrated since all he wants is a Photo with the most powerful man on the planet. Though it may seem a joke, It is believed that Raila wants this photo badly to rush back to kenya with it so that he apparently uses it boosts his now dwindling political support by showing association with the most popular man in the world.

****Maize from the port silos only leaves there in National Cereals and Produce Board-branded bags*****

**but the maize found and sold in central province has South African-labelled bags*


Raila: Bad maize not from port
Update 9 hours and 28 minutes ago

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.

Kibaki went to the funeral- because he ordered the burning of those people in the eldoret church- who doesn't know that?

what Funeral sam kello?
who murdered who? and why should other Kenyans bother to go to that funeral when they know how it happened themselves?

kenyans buried their own ages ago and they were not waiting around for state burials!!

and kenyans didn't need the same killers attending their funerals

i sincerely pity the eldoret church people laying in their graves and knowing very well that the same person who ordered their deaths was standing there claiming he cared.. what a sham

that eldoret burial was just a show case for Kibaki to spit on those he killed- those people are turning in their graves as we speak.

My learned Friend Okello

Just to remained that that most of us Kenyans are aware what happened and who planned the eldoret massacre

and as we can all see he is continuing executing mungiki or whose he claims are mungiki's in central province - meanwhile still ordering the assassination of activists

The same murderer burying the people he ordered to be burned in Eldoret church to confuse kenyans while rigging the elections

kibaki is a nasty piece of work we all know that- my question to you same is why haven't kenyans frog marched him out of statehouse? other countries have forced murderers out?

If Kenya is divided it is because of myopic and escapist logic like that.

This enourmous tumour of tribalism is the fruition of the divisive and selfish (our turn to eat) politics that has been practiced under varying methodologies by both Mr Kenyatta (whose proteges are in power now) and Mr Moi, (whose proteges are now dominantly definign opposition plitics in Kenya today)

We cannot escape the fact that this demon we call GEMA, which you insist is the sole cause of our problems, was conjured specifically to help Kenyatta and his MEN eat. You cannot escape the fact that many of those men still haunt the corridors of power long after the proper GEMA organisation was banned.

However you cannot escape the fact that we have allowed this to blind us to the only reason these thugs are still there is because we refuse hold ourselves top a sufficiently high standard of governance as to hold them individually responsible for their wrong doings. No we would rather blame some abstract idea like their ethnicity for all the ills in this country whether they have any personal involvement in it or not.

That Mr Okello is the problem

"The bitter truth is what many of these hypocrites fear. It is the same cyber stalkers who go around Kenyan blogs posting comments how Kumekucha has gone to the dogs, yet they still find time to come back here to caution Okello! What nonsense."

The reason they say Kumekucha has gone to the dogs is because they can't handle the truth at Kumekucha. It is too hot and frightening for them.

Lesson to them: FRAUD and DECEPTION will never succeed; it will always come back to haunt you painfully.

Why do some people in Kenya think that ruling Kenya is their God given right and only them and their families can do it?

- We had Jomo Kenyatta, now we have Uhuru Kenyatta (Not forgetting the many Kenyatta Kin who have been in influential positions like Muhoho, Beth Mugo etc)

- Then we had Daniel Moi, now we have Gideon Moi (Not forgetting the billions Raymond Moi and company have robbed Kenyans)

- We have Mwai Kibaki, and he is grooming Jimmy Kibaki (Incase you have not noticed he has been on TV a lot lately. Has he just discovered he can help out in Othaya?)

After this, we have the others:

- We had Jaramogi Odinga, now we have Raila Odinga (Not forgetting akina Oburu)

- We had Moses Mudavadi, now we have Musalia Mudavadi

- We had Snr. Salat, now we have Nick Salat

- We had Kipkalya Kones, now we have Mrs. Kones

- We had Laboso, now we have Laboso's sister

- We had Kihara, then Kihara's wife.

Guys, what the f.uck is wrong with Kenya?

I know even in US we have political families like the Clinton's, Bushes, Kennedy's etc, but at least these are people who have an agenda for US.

In Kenya, they rob us, use any means necessary to protect their ill gotten wealth, then shove their sons, wives, brothers OR sisters down our throats to continue where they left.

Meanwhile, we the common Kenyans are busy fighting and tearing at each other, calling each other skunks and ngozi and all those other names.

As we do this, they are eating and congratulating the one who beat them to the game and waiting to rotate the positions among themselves.

I expect a lot of matusi on this, but this is the BARE truth in Kenya and only WE Kenyans can reverse it.

PS: There is no difference between the common mwananchi, be he Kikuyu, Luo, Kale, Luhya, Kisii OR even Dorobo. They all pay tax, drive on dilapidated roads, are shikwad ngeta, buy unga at 95 bob and are the ones who suffer when the mighty decide to lock horns in search of power.

On the other hand, there is no difference between the rich, be they kikuyu, Luo, Kale, Luhya, Kisii OR even Dorobo. They all live in upmarket places with private security guards, don't pay taxes, drive top of the range vehicles that never feel the potholes, have no idea how much a packet of unga costs and evacuate their families to other lands before they decide to lock horns in search of power.

I think we are all beginning to sense the gravity of the situation we are dealing with. I obviously write with punch so our eyes can open. Our brothers and sisters from Central think I hate them. Not so. I love folks from Central. One of Sahel's best sellers is a sweet lady from Kabete called Njeri. And you'll notice from our website that I work with a lot of guys from that area. They are all fellow Kenyans to me and I love them dearly.

So the point of my strident voice lately is this...that we open our eyes and correct the ills we see in our nation before they swallow us. Is it the case that our brothers from Central have dominated public life? Yes. Are other Kenyans feeling a bit left out? Yes. What I'm saying therefore is...what can we collectively do to correct this situation?

Kibaki thought after murdering and burning his own tribesmen in the Eldoret church he would have Martha Karua shouting on the BBC "genocide genocide" ha!!ha! no body bought it - then the same mungiki they send to burn the church were gunned down one by one and executed.. hey but wait!!same opened up and confessed and it was no more a secret..

Give Diplomacy a Chance on Migingo, The President is Right on the Bull's Eye

A casual read into Museveni's comments on Migingo dispute betrays an attempt to manipulate the Kenyan populace into tribalising an otherwise National problem, but the real intention could more cunning and sinister. Like other East Africans, Museveni seem to believe that Kenyans are incorrigibly tribalized so much so that anyone can manipulate these differences to their advantage.

What such mindset does not appreciate is the fact that though our diversity is sometimes manipulated negatively particularly by the political class, Kenyans are for the most part very nationalistic and tend to celebrate their national achievement with abandon. We all celebrate our sportsmen and women irrespective of tribe and at micro levels we've never had a problem with each other, but for few dimwits.

Little wonder then that you'd find a Kenya Member of parliament of Indian origin in a predominantly native constituency, a Luo councilor in Muranga, a Somali Mayor in Migori. Who do you think voted Dr.. Lwali Oyondi and the late Ramogi Achieng Oneko in Nakuru? We all remember that the Kamukunji electorate chose TJ over Dr. Munyua and better still, Luo Nyanza voted overwhelmingly for Kibaki in 2002 than his own Gikuyu community though in a period of less than two years some losers resuscitated the Luo bogeyman, well lets leave that for a different day. My point in citing a few of these statistics is to show that the tribal differences and competition is for the most part a manipulation and exaggerated.

Museveni's characterization of the Luo, despicable as it is to Kenyans, is a manifestation of unfettered arrogance of an overstayed leader lack of empathy not only to the Kenyan Luo but also to his fellow country people who share the larger Luo ancestry. I don't know but if a Kenyan politician were to talk disparagingly against Tanzanian Masai or Somalian Somali then I doubt if the locals would take it kindly, so please madam or mr. honorable just don't do it. But perhaps Museveni has long ceased to court (well he is under no meaningful democratic pressure) or respect those Luo people in Uganda, no wonder instead of proving them with security and helping them resettle he is contemplating appropriating their land.

Museveni also assumes that all those who live around and or make a living from the lake are Luo. They are actually a smorgasbord of communities some of who trace their ancestry to the Baganda and so forth. For your information Sir, there are no pure breeds here, we are all mutts. His cantankerous utterance has also created a potential of mistrust between otherwise brotherly neighbors. People from border regions appreciate and are proud of their relatives on the other side of the border. In fact these relationships have proved to be life insurance of sorts. Because of this many Ugandans found it easy to melt into Kenyan society during Idi Amin regime (many middle aged Kenyans most likely had a Ugandan teacher), quite a few Kenyans at one point also found refuge and work in Uganda, not to mention the help himself, Museveni, received from his Rwandan brethren. The same may also be said of other border commuties. For example, whenever the GSU are set on poor Kuria where do you think they head? Not Migori of course. Your guess is as good as mine, Tanzania. It is therefore inhuman for a Head of State to saw seeds of hatred between otherwise peaceful brothers.

But Museveni's callous utterances also portend a deeper and sinister motive than is immediately apparent. Museveni appears to have found himself between a hard rock that is Migingo, and other Islands and border hills. It is very likely that the border survey may not only confirm Kenya's claim to Migingo, but could also shutter Ugandas' claim to other islands and border points. So what is Museveni to do faced this this realization and with no credible evidence to back his un informed territorial annexation? Set a trap by localizing the Migingo affair, accept it as Kenyan and disrupt the work of the survey team. This way, he can keep his claim to other islands in the lake as he continues to harass and intimidate poor fishermen and the Turkana. By bowing to his unbridled predisposition to aggression thus invading Little Rock Migingo, Museveni is staring at Migingo Waterloo and will soon have to explain to the people of Uganda why they may no only relinquish sovereignty over Migingo but over other Islands as well. Not a cozy spot for a any Head of State to chill in. Moreover, it will immediately poke reservations on the credibility of Uganda's claim on other territories, the Lake Albert Island dispute being one.

The onus now lies with both Kenya Parliament and politicians to make sure that Museveni does succeed in derailing the border survey team by not biting his bait. Instead they should pile pressure on a speedy execution of the border survey and its immediate implementation. Concomitantly, security agencies together with the politicians should make sure they let the public know that we are not in anyway at war with the people of Uganda and trade and communication routes should not be interfered with but facilitated with an even greater abandon. This way would have provided a good example and leadership to our brothers in the East and Central African region. May I also add that which ever way this survey turn, it should never ever be used as an excuse to expel those who already live in these places. It is only fair and human that such a consideration be made. In any case there are more Kenyans living in mainland Uganda and more Ugandans living in mainland Kenya than in these islands or border points. Nobody is going to die because a few Ugandans are let live in a Kenyan island or vice versa.

As for President Kibaki, he stands to get allot of accolade and admiration should the whole process get consummated and implemented to the later. Years to come, may be months, we might all sit back and wallow in his judgment and handling of the crisis. My message to Mr. President therefore is "stay the course", we are almost there. And to Raila "give the Kibera youths both Uganda and Kenya flags to wave the trains through every time a Uganda bound train passes by". Good luck and long live East African Community and always remember, East Africans have always been a community only geo-politically compartmentalized.

it is called fear mongering of a dangerous kind..

remember Obama was once accused by the republicans that he was "laying in bed with terrorists" during the campaigns!

only murderers and thugs use fear mongering to justify their means

this kikuyu tribe is doomed and i don't feel sorry for them for allowing kibaki to finish their youths by pitting Mungiki against vigilantes that is the oldest trick in the book-" let them kill themselves since i was caught executing them and i might be taken to the Hague(kibaki's thoughts) and i can see he is doing very well..

Beth Mugo and the PNU cronies find themselves stack peddling lies that kenyans are not buying

ha!!ha!!ha!! the lie lays in that the Maize was found only in central province and did you see the police force mobolized to go and arrest the maize traders??
even during the clashes or in Nairobi were the crime rate is at it's highest - kenyans don't see that many policemen send out

fishy !!fishy!! but i blame the kikuyu's who are so foolish and have lack of intelligence or should i say they are so blinded with hate for other tribes that they follow their leaders blindly and hang on every word spoken from their lips

do i pity them kikuyu's yes because while the sing the praise of kibaki and his cronies... their sons and daughters are being slaughter in the name of mungiki and vigilante groups formed by the same kikuyu elite mafia under kibaki's watch.

Now they are being told Raila is selling you contaminated maize to finish the kikuyu's

central province just claps exitedly and says yes yes!! we hear you..

aren't this central province people educated? or are they the rich and who are only educated and the rest fall under the umbrella of mungiki and vigilante with no education since they don't seem to follow on facts
the worst is they are told to kill each other and they do it.

i sincerely don't pity them now since they have the power of the people in their hands to stop it but have decided not to.

or is it God punishing them for the killing of innocent kenyans in 2007- you all recall central province was protected by Kibaki while he was using the police and the mungiki to murderer other tribes- God does not sleep now central province roads are flowing with blood and fields are called the valley of death.

Vigilantes who kill with equal force

Mungiki: The untold story of a gang reinvented
‘The Hague’: The open court where only death sentences are passed

By Standard Team

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."

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

By Standard Reporter

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.

"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.

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.

2. who encouraged the vigilante thugs t go after the mungiki and even innocent youths from central in the name of flashing out the mungiki and they even have the "HAGUE" but this hague one is executed without trail!! again KIBAKI and his PNU government under the police are encouraged them to do so..

why because the police can not go openly and kill mungiki since Muite send a report on the killings to the Hague and blamed it on Kibaki..

Kibaki and cronies had to find another way of killing the mungiki without showing their hand and

suddenly the birth A new group named the "VIGILANTE" now known as chilling and vicious MURDERERS
being used and supported by kibaki and his PNU 100%

the pity is for the ordinary kikuyu's in central not idiots and shenzi mavi like you.. go back under the stone you crawled from mpumbavu wewe.

I hate to say this, but KK is the leader in Kenyan blogging. I have been to the other blogs and I do not see anywhere near the lively debate going on here. Matusi aside, we must scream at each other before we become friends.

anon 7:25,

you call such extremism lively debate?

Bwana Okello, if Central and Eastern are indeed 'surrounded' by six hostile provinces (including the patently stupid ODM claim that this 'surrounding' and hence hostility includes Nairobi province where GEMA and Akamba people combined are the overwhelmingly clear majority!), and that we are indeed two nations, then why not split up permanently? You can have your Western Kenya republic beyond Nakuru composed of Luos, Luhyas, Kalenjins and friendly Maasais. The GEMA, the Akamba and friendly Maasais can form a Central Kenya republic including Nairobi, and then you can have a Coast republic. Other tribes like the Somali and Borana will have to decide where to belong or even form their own states. When a marriage is beyond salvage, the best solution is divorce, not constant quarreling and fighting that can lead to murder. Kenyans should just sit down and agree on how to go their separate ways.

Kenya my Kenya,

I really don't know where we are heading.

This side is Migingo

The other side is vigilante groups, who have become as murderous as Mungiki, and maybe they will also start forcing villagers to pay a fee for protection from Mungiki.

And by the way someone told me there is no mungiki - that original mungiki was hijacked by criminals. The vigilante's face has started resembling that of 'mungiki'. If the government supports them then I'm seeing a conflict that will take long to end for neither side is willing to give up and surrender. The government should fight mungiki and not allow vigilante to do that.

Now let's go to Migingo.... no let's go to Kiambaa burial.

Haki, where are we heading?

Imagine this, mungiki forces youths to join them or else they might kill you.

Vigilante forces people to join them or else they might also kill you.

If mungiki knows you are a member of vigilante they kill you.

If vigilante knows you are a member of mungiki they kill you.

So if you are a youth in those areas you must make a decision to join either mungiki or vigilante, or face death.

But also if you join either knowsthat you also faces death when the 'enemy' gets you.

If your brother belongs to mungiki while the other belongs to vigilante, really what will you do?

If my brother or son is killed by either then I'll want to revenge, and the cycle will continue, that's why if the government can't do anything, then in future even the economy of central will be affected, security will be so bad and you never know where the refugees from central will want to run, maybe to Ahero or Mihoroni or Homabay. The places that some of them despise, for it can soon be better than Central province.

By the way what I'm saying is serious that only a fool will response badly. You just need to go and ask those living in those areas, it's getting worse.

the question you should be asking yourself like most kenyans are asking is that why why! are central province big wigs quiet while the ordinary mwanaichi in central province is being slaughtered in the name of mungiki??

2. why has the Kibaki PNU side of government allowed ordinary wanaichi's in central province be judge and jury their fellow tribesmen? "Hague" kangaroo court??

doesn't that scare you? if the Kibaki PNU side of government can allow such mascaras to take place in their own backyard then God forbid when they decide to turn on the rest of Kenyans

The only saving grace is that the rest of Kenya learned their lesson and now they see through the kibaki and cronies tactic and they will not buy it- in fact that is the day Kibaki will be frog marched out of statehouse BY KENYANS LIKE FORMER PRESIDENT CHAUCHESCO.... this time the rest of kenya is watching and waiting as the saga in central province unfolds

I understand most MP's don't even visit their own constituencies in central alone unless there is a function and they travel in a convey- they are scared shiatless.. and it serves them right since they are not fighting for the ordinary people on ground in this ghost towns..

Only a blind fool can say what you posted here- like the Coast and Eestern can vote for PNU? didn't you learn your lesson in the last elections? or you are so arrogant after kibaki rigged elections and was sworn in in the dark that you can't even imagine otherwise.. let me say this to you your arrogance as a kikuyu will come to bare.. other tribes you may think they are foolish but come the change at statehouse kikuyu's yes better be prepared to face the wrath of kenyans - you have abused, insulted, maligned beheaded, assassinated and murdered so many kenyans without a blink of an eye and now

your own tribesmen are killing each other in the name of kibaki and his rich cronies who care less how many ordinary kikuyu's slaughter each other... you must be a fool or too blind to even fathom what is happening in your own backyard in central province and let me advise you it will take years for people in central province to trust each other and live together as neighbors

and we all thought Moi was bad?
Kibaki takes the golden trophy for the senile bastard that introduced killing fields and the kangaroo HAGUE court in central province.

Kenyans already decided on December 27th 2007 or you have forgotten
and infact after Kibaki slaughtered many kenyans- they all come to an agreement to separate from Central Landlocked Lesotho

Maybe your brains have gone numb and this is what kenyans still want seeing that the central province has decided to be lawless and use Local Hague to execute each other.

Does the rest of Kenya need central province? No no no no no!! we can do very well without them
tea and coffee is grown in other parts of Kenya, so we don't need any from central province ..

you see central province is not strategically placed to matter to Kenyans and in fact it is the province that is dragging Kenya down. (looting, Anglo leasing, grand Regency, Oil,charter house, transcentury and now add the mini budget which just by the grace of God was caught before implementation - it is about time the rest of kenya divorced central province like i said we definitely don't need them. they can have their statehouse in Othaya or is it Kiambu under the mafia thief Uhuru ??

Kenya should be split and governed according to the will of its people and the voting outcomes of 07.

Central and Eastern should be a country unto themsleves and let the other 6 provinces that voted ODM be self governing, until 2010/2012 and we go back to the ballot. If the outcomes are the same are the prior elections, let's secede and make it permanent.

Gatundu court destroyed by night fire..... just after another one (in the same province) was destroyed in the same way last month..... ONLY IN KUKUYULAND.

When not burning their own in kiambaa, they are busy destroying evidence that touches on their numerous cases involving THEFT, DECEPTION AND FRAUD!!SHAME ON YOU.

A law court has been destroyed by a night fire in Gatundu town of Kenya’s Central province.

Image Gallery

The fire is thought to have been started by an electric fault in one of the rooms and quickly spread to the whole building that houses the resident magistrate court.

The registry, where court records are kept, was also completely destroyed.

Court files of at least 300 criminal cases and 1,200 civil cases were burnt.

High Court Registrar Lydia Achoda said that the criminal cases, which were in different stages of investigations, will be reconstructed with the help of the police. She added that lawyers handling the civil cases will be involved in reconstructing the cases.

Ms Achoda also said all court activity will be transferred to Thika.

anon at 1.49am yes my kikuyu associates know exactly how i feel about their strange characteristics and mannerisms(culture).but they dont take me seriously because i'm not 'one' of them.....
are you sure you're not a kikuyu yourself? i know the truth hurts but then again the truth does set you free once you embrace it.
i dont hide behind kk as you put's just one of the many forums where i express myself just like you do.
personally i feel the only solution for kenya is to divide it majimbo style and let everybody manage themselves.
we are going nowhere with this coalition business.
when kivuitu announced the infamous results the shit hit the fan and the air in kenya will be full of shit for a long time to come....

There are comments here that imply that the Gikuyu have hatred for other tribes but i got to ask, who has the hate? the blatant tribalistic comments made on this blog are made by members of other tribes. pointing the finger at other people/tribes/nationalities is a well used strategy by politicians world over to cover up their misgivings and lack of performance. the best example of this is Hitler(read a history book) and those dumb/gullible enough shout the Bullshit back the loudest. Irrespective of what Kikuyu leaders have done they are no worse than those of other leaders(of other tribes) in power meaning they are all crap!! Blatant generalization of a tribe based on acts by a few idiots is ignorant. KENYANS died because of nonsense (like what is on this blog) and other shit and at the end of the day there is nothing to show for it other than a hefty pay rise and a new Benz in every MP's garage. I thought this blog would offer an enlightened conversation on the current political atmosphere in Kenya, but i will not be subject to hate speech cloaked as patriotism.

Even after stealing elections Kibaki wont help tis country heal. He would evoke emotions of the Kikuyu. However each action from Kibaki proves to me how much of a tool he has become to be used by those who surround him. Principally Saitoti!! George you shall never be president of Kenya even if you mutate into a true Masai.

Anon @ 7.28am. Now what is your problem? You say that other communities after Dec 2007 wanted to secede and keep Kikuyus in 'Lesotho'. Well, that is exactly what i am proposing we should do but it doesnt seem to have made you happy, in fact the idea has made you livid! So what the hell do you want with Kikuyus now? We have agreed we want to be in Lesotho, which is what you ODM cult adherents desired, so what is the problem?
If you think Mungiki can take on the Govt, then you are an ignorant, uneducated imbecile. The Govt has not even applied a 10th of its potential power in Central. Did you know, for example, that Kibaki, if he so desired, could declare a state of emergency in Mungiki infested areas of Central province, the Central Rift and Nairobi? Do you have ANY idea what that means? It means a nighttime curfew from 6pm to 6am. It means any one caught outside at this time will be shot on sight. It means no idling ANYWHERE during the day, no prolonged stationary groups of more than 3 people, you must be able to prove you are law abiding, entire villages can be transformed into Army secured concentration camps, all young men would have to flee if unemployed, probably to Tanzania. This situation can be maintained indefinitely. In other words, Mungiki, which hides amongst the people but needs an atmosphere of relative freedom and openness to survive and operate, can be so completely smoothered it would be unable to breath, leave alone survive. Its members, majority of whom are in it for easy money, would soon dessert it. Unfortunately Kibaki is an incorrigible coward and cant make the tough decisions. In a Lesotho republic however, Kibaki would have no say and real men would deal with Mungiki, mano a mano. Why are you now opposing a Lesotho republic?
