I apologize in advance because this post is going to be rather long. It was absolutely necessary because it contains some pretty scary information which I believe a number of Kenyans have already lost their lives for knowing or for stumbling across.
There are a number of reasons why in recent times I have not been making posts in this blog that I founded a little over 4 years ago. One of the main ones stems from some of the scary information you are about to read here. I must admit that I have always rubbished the suggestion that ignorance is bliss and it is much better not to know a lot of stuff because the more you know the more scary it gets. If you had suggested something like this to me just a year ago I would have laughed at you pitifully.
But now I am not so sure. In fact there are many times when I wish I hadn’t started Kumekucha in the first place because it would not have led me to the almost hopeless situation I now find myself in. And so one of the reasons why I have been quiet is because I have been feeling hopeless. More so as Kenyans debate issues that have been deliberately pushed to the forefront as smoke screens to mask the real issues. The scary stuff. Then I asked myself what can a small blog like Kumekucha do to change things? I am aware that this site has had some impact in the politics of the land. But one can only do so much. When issues escalate to what they are today my view is that we do not have enough good people in Kenya to take the information you are about to read here seriously enough to do something about it.
Still, I have decided to reveal a few things here today.
In Part 1 of this post I gave you a background as to why the executive was reduced to tribal and indeed family appointments way back during the Kenyatta days. It was all a question of survival. I also said that the Kibaki administration has a lot of similarities to the Kenyatta administration. However there is one subtle difference that makes the situation even more dangerous in the Kibaki administration. Those close to the president may be hailing from his Mount Kenya enclosure but the difference is that many of them are very well educated and capable individuals. Some are amongst the wealthiest and most powerful Kenyans around. If you compare these fellows to the simple people from the Kalenjin community who surrounded President Moi you will realize that Moi’s men were nothing short of loyal village goons who quickly evaporated with his presidency. Those around Kibaki will not just disappear when the president leaves office. They will remain behind in powerful positions and situations to protect him long after he has left. In other words the next president of Kenya will be faced with the same problem faced by Moi when he took over power in 1978 only this time the situation is much more deadly and difficult to deal with.
Appointments in security organs in the Kibaki administration have to be trusted completely. Trusted to have their loyalty only towards the president and NOT the country. What would you do if you were faced with a situation where you have to abandon your loyalty to your country in order to remain loyal to the individual holding the office of the president of the republic?
This is exactly what is happening in the Kibaki administration. And that is why certain key security positions cannot just be filled by anybody (even if they are the right tribe). Indeed it is not an accident that finance is as sensitive to Kibaki as security is. The two are very closely tied together because a lot of dirty things have to be heavily financed with tax payer’s cash without too many questions being asked. Remember the error in the budget that Uhuru Kenyatta told us was a computer error, earlier this year? By the way if you believed this line then you would believe anything including me telling you one day that some inaccurate information I published in my post here was due to a “computer error”. Computers never make errors, humans do. Feed a computer garbage and it gives you exactly that back. Naturally you can also feed it with an alleged error. Anyway I hope that point has sunk in so that you understand the bombshell I am about to drop.
For a long time now reports that I have been receiving and even signs to the observant point to the fact that the Kibaki administration has been creating secret parallel security organs. Stanley Murage one of the president’s closest aides was reported to have been putting together a parallel intelligence unit about 2 years before the ill-fated 2007 elections (it could even have been earlier). There are numerous happenings since then that suggest that this unit is up and running. The brains behind it are hired individuals who hail from a foreign power known to have the best intelligence unit in the world. Now my question is why would you need such a unit and yet we have the NSIS which reports directly to the executive?
We also know that the Administration police has grown immensely in stature and power since the Kibaki administration took over. For many years the AP was nothing but a handful of semi-illiterate policemen scattered around the country to help chiefs and other provincial administration personnel carry out their duties on the ground. Today the AP has grown so much so that the main stream police force feel very threatened by it. Why?
Whatever the reason for this it all means that whoever is appointed police commissioner would need to be somebody who can look the other way and have complete loyalty to the executive at the expense of their loyalty to the country. When you grasp this you will understand former police commissioner Ali and the current police commissioner Mathew Iteere very well. By the way, Iteere hails from the much trusted Mt Kenya tribe of the Meru who have always voted for Kibaki almost to a man. (Some cheeky rumours have it that Kibaki has some Meru blood in him, don't ask me how).
Here there are some uncanny similarities that the current Kibaki succession seems to have with the Kenyatta succession. Let me explain. In the late 70s there was a special anti-stock theft police unit that was created from State house whose main purpose was to deal with cattle rustling in remote parts of the country like amongst the Pokot. The explanation for the existence of this force made plenty of sense. Cattle theft even in those days was being carried out by heavily armed bandits in remote terrains that they knew well. So nobody butted an eye lid when this unit quickly became one of the best equipped and best armed in the country. And neither did anybody get suspicious when it became known that the members of the new anti-stock theft unit were also being trained as paratroopers. The unit I am talking about came to be known as the Ngoroko (headed by the then powerful assistant commissioner of police in charge of Rift Valley, James Mungai. Mungai was related to President Jomo Kenyatta. The man now lives in Nyali, Mombasa (see this earlier Kumekucha post). Shortly after President Moi came into power it was revealed that the real purpose of this unit had been to ensure that on the death of President Kenyatta, a number of powerful politicians who would be in line to take over power constitutionally would be executed and power would pass on to one of president Kenyatta’s men. Unconstitutionally of course.
Now I am not suggested anything. I am just giving you the facts as they are. So make up your own mind as to what is really happening. If you want to say history may repeat itself, then the facts thus far will support your insinuation. And what makes it even scarier is the fact that those around Kenyatta did not have as much to lose as those surrounding Kibaki now.
But let me make it very clear that this post is not about Kikuyu-bashing. The Ngoroko unit was NOT created to keep the Kikuyu in power. It was created to keep a few individuals in power (they just happened to be from the Kikuyu community). More recently it is not clear what the mysterious contingent of APs sent to every constituency shortly before the 2007 general elections were supposed to do. But one thing I am certain about is that they were NOT acting in the interests of the Kikuyu community. They were acting in the interests of a few very powerful individuals who happen to be Kikuyu.
Now the big problem here is that one of the agents of these powerful people will make a comment here about how this is a Kikuyu-bashing post and before you know it emotions will start running high and my dear Kikuyu readers will rubbish all the information here. Perfect smoke screen, don’t you think? And that is exactly what happened in the run up to the 2007 general elections. Our Kenyan brothers who happened to be Kikuyu were told that ODM were going to finish them. And I played right into their hands in this blog by writing about a number of things the Kikuyu community had done against other Kenyans. My timing stunk but had the desired effect for those who own Kenya. I urge my Kikuyu brethren to wake up and see how we are all being used by a tiny clique of politicians to rise up and fight against each other whilst our real enemies continue to get spectacularly rich at our expense. In the end we all suffer irrespective of our tribes.
To be honest I do not see how these people can be stopped. With our current constitution all the power is in State House. And more importantly the executive controls all the resources and provincial administration to get anything done. In other words Kenyans had no reason being so frightened during the Moi succession. They had good reason to be scared when Kenyatta died however they are justified to get into a serious panic over the Kibaki succession.
These are more or less the same people who plotted to retain power after the death of Kenyatta. The excuse was to protect the Kenyatta family. They remember the mistakes that were made and are bound to make sure that they succeed this time round.
I take refuge in the fact that men make plans but it is only GOD who is the final decision maker. I am convinced (and so are many other people who know the facts) that the Ngoroko plan would have worked and Kenyatta’s close aides would have retained the presidency amongst themselves in 1978. Only one small stupid thing went wrong that fateful night in August 21st 1978. For the first time in over 20 years, a man called Mbiyu Koinange was NOT at Kenyatta’s side that night. He had to rush to Nairobi on some urgent business. Can you imagine that!!! On the night that Kenyatta chooses to die the Ngoroko link within State House happened NOT to be there. And that is how Vice President Moi and others like Mwai Kibaki survived assassination. The information of Kenyatta’s death reached Moi before it reached the Ngoroko. That was GOD.
Ohh and there was something else that the plotters got wrong. They greatly underestimated Moi’s intelligence. To this day I know many people who believe that somebody who cannot express themselves in English is NOT intelligent. They also believe that people who can speak the Queens language in the correct accent are very very intelligent.
Well Moi already had a plan in advance that he had gone over for years. Who to contact, what to do, who was going to help etc. He had no illusions because his life depended on it. He put that plan in motion and got past a Ngoroko road block the night Kenyatta died hidden inside a very dusty old Peugeot 404. Moi is a very tall man and he must have been very uncomfortable but it was a small price to pay for living and rising to the presidency of the republic of Kenya.
I believe that that same God will save Kenya once again, just like he did in 1978. If HE chooses to, that is.
But I thought that you, my dear friends, should have this information. If anything happens to me then you must know that it will have something to do with this post. These people have invested too much to be easily stopped at this eleventh hour. However I am optimistic that I will survive and that Kenya will too. It is all in the hands of the Almighty.
P.S. The Ringera information I promised will be in my next post. I stumbled across some more information that I want to tie it up with. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
