Very Trying Moments for ODM, DPM Mudavadi

Corruption Ghost Stalks ODM ministers.

The Deputy PM and ODM’s Minister for Local Government Wycliffe Musalia Mudavadi was the whistleblower of the Nairobi City Commission cemetery scandal. He purposefully wrote to the Head of Civil Service Francis Muthaura to take action on some officers in his ministry implicated in the scam which he claims was engineered without his knowledge. Mudavadi has also been grilled by the Parliamentary Committee of Local Government, which interestingly made a recommendation that he be investigated for not bothering to visit the cemetery site!

Prime Minister Raila Odinga was last night reported to have asked both Mudavadi and Mayor Geofrey Majiwa to take political responsibility of the scam and step aside to allow KACC to undertake forensic investigations. Rumours have been flying around Nairobi this morning that Mudavadi will be handing over his request to temporarily step aside at any time if only to show his party ODM means business in tackling high level graft.

Many will recall that although President Kibaki suspended key officials of the Office of the Prime Minister over the maize scandal, the suspension came hours after the PM had already received resignation letters from Mohammed Isahakhia and Caroli Omondi. Therefore it will not be entirely a surprise if Mudavadi and Majiwa also hand in their resignation going by the commendable trend already shown by ODM.

While addressing the an International Monetary Fund forum on Africa’s Economic Transformation Prime Minister Raila Odinga maintained that politicians and leaders implicated in corruption must be held to account for the government’s war against graft to succeed. Raila told the forum that corruption had been the biggest impediment to development and that the war against corruption must be personalised by identifying individuals concerned and making them carry their own cross. Wise words indeed. But will ODM walk the talk?

Only yesterday, and more than a month after Mudavadi’s pleas for action to be taken on MoLG officials, the President reluctantly interdicted several government officials. President Kibaki who has been under intense pressure from his coalition partner and donors to crack down on high level corruption went to say that the Kshs. 259 million that was overpaid for purchase of the cemetery land must be recovered from the beneficiaries and “collaborators including lawyers and agents, should be prosecuted for the serious fraud which they have committed against the Kenyan public”. Music to my ears, I must admit.

However, keen observers will have not failed to notice that this is action of interdicting government officials was taken the same day the President was meeting the IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Interestingly, the directive by the president to demand that the stolen money be refunded is a historic and a first for Kibaki’s eight year old presidency. The Kenyan public are wondering if the thieves of Anglo-Leasing, Triton, Maize, FPE, Kroll and even Goldenberg will also be charged and asked to refund the hundreds of billions of public money stolen to line the pockets of a few individuals. At long last the public will appreciate the positive side of ever forming the grand coalition.

If Mudavadi and Majiwa do indeed step aside, the pressure will only be increased on Kibaki and his corruption laden PNU side. If they do not step aside, ODM will be seen to have lost credibility in the eyes of the public. The ODM Party Leader will also be placed in an awkward situation.

We shall then have to wait and see if the KACC will indeed find Mudavadi and Majiwa culpable and charge them in an anti-corruption court. Not much hope in that direction though.

Yes, it is the land question again. In the DN, it is written:

"The officials have been interdicted in connection with the fraudulent purchase of 120 acres for a cemetery in Mavoko Township at a cost of Sh283 million when the true value of the plot was Sh30 million."

Once again, we insist that, this way of "fighting corruption" is a waste of time and mockery to the poor.

We say this because, we have completely failed to define our troubles in terms of historical change and INSTITUTIONAL CONTRADICTIONS. As thus, we fail to grasp the interplay of man and society.

Having said this, a proper appreciation of our troubles must be understood by asking 3 basic questions:

(a) What is the structure of our society as a whole?

(b) Where does our society stand in human history?

(c) What varieties of men and women prevail in this period. More so, how are they selected, formed etc.

In the article posted here: "The First Principles in Drafting a Constitution," we wrote this:

"By appropriating our soil, they effectively reduced Africans into slaves because whoever appropriates the soil, must as the night follows the day, pocket the surplus produced by those who must labour in agriculture and manufacturing in accordance with law of rent. In other words, to appropriate land means to claim everything that must be made using its help. In simple words, those who sweat can only pocket only a small piece of the bread that is just necessary to ensure bare survival. The bigger part of the bread they bake with their blood and sweat is thereby, pocketed by those who appropriated land, but, who do not sweat. Hereby, we now see that, this LEGAL/ARTIFICIAL RIGHT TO PROPERTY which grows not from natural causes, but, by the law of fraud or what men in wigs call the law of the land is founded on the negation of the first principle of a just and peaceful society, i.e. the NATURAL RIGHT TO PROPERTY."

In essence, the sale of this plot of land is the exact example of ARTIFICIAL RIGHT TO PROPERTY. And, we can see clearly that, it is a negation of the NATURAL RIGHT TO PROPERTY.

Therefore, the way to address this matter is very simple. Abolish artificial right to property which is based on fraud. There IS NO OTHER WAY.

Court restrains Oburu in railways land dispute

The High Court has issued an order stopping an MP from transferring some property in Kisumu he is alleged to have acquired illegally.

The temporary orders restraining Bondo MP Oburu Oginga were issued by the Kisumu High Court judge, Lady Justice Abida Ali Aroni, following an application by the Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission (KACC).

KACC sued Dr Oginga, together with Baringo Central MP Sammy Mwaita.

Seeking the orders against Dr Oginga, KACC said investigations had revealed that he fraudulently obtained the registration of the suit property, which belongs to Kenya Railways Corporation.

The land was surveyed in 1935 and set aside as part of the railway reserve and duly registered. Subsequently, the property was vested in the defunct East African Railways Corporation.

However, in 2001, Dr Oginga is said to have wrongfully procured a lease over the suit property from Mr Mwaita. The lease was registered at the district land registry in Kisumu on February 12, 2001.

Here we go again, another shameless comedy! So the good old prezzo finally wakes up one day after over 2,000 days in power and shows the door to some small fish in city hall, he surely does deserve an Oscar. Why can't he do the same when it comes to Ongeri and Ruto...ama they represent millions of votes from their tribes?

Raila maybe outspoken when it comes to fighting corruption but he must also ask Mudavadi and Majiwa to shove off and show some sense of responsibility. But the PM should not expect Kenyans to pat him on the back for that because that's precisely why we pay him millions in salary and give him a long motorcade.

I was driving along Limuru Road the other day and past Runda there's a small town which is developing very fast with lots of posh flats coming up daily. It's called Ruaka and the northern bypass will be ending there. Aga Khan university will also be set up there later on. I understand a plot, 50x100, which used to cost 500k five years ago is now going for 5M, take it or leave.

And guess who recently bought a huge tract of land there and is erecting dozens of posh apartments (Kileleshwa style) worth hundreds of millions? Well, step forward Bwana Gakuo who is also deeply implicated in this cemetery scandal. Maybe KACC should step in and investigate.

You just couldn't make it up! These crooks in city hall have seen top guns getting away with huge economic crimes whose cases drag on for decades until files vanish in thin air from our pathetic courts which only convicts chicken thieves. I can't really blame them thugs for thieving coz that's what everyone else seem to be doing these days!

....Come on really, this is Kenya! What are the chances of getting convicted and ending up in Kamiti when you can buy your way out or get cleared by a sham commission and sneaked back in power when everyone has forgotten?

This is the HEART of our problems which we have insisted should have been the main issue in constitution drafting.

Where did this value of over 4 million KES that a few idlers are pocketing come from?

(a) population increase and,

(b) efficiency of our economy, i.e. infrastructure paid by ALL.

Or, did the "owners" of these plots spend any labour or capital so as to increase their value? NO.

Thus, we have taxed Wanjiku to increase the value of land to be pocketed by a few. Talk of modern slavery.

And, instead of our religious leaders being the voice of voiceless as the Bible/Qoran requires of them, we just hear them talking a lot of rubbish in press conferences.

In words of Jesus, Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men's bones and everything unclean.

This is UNEARNED INCOME and is what should EXCLUSIVELY be taken to fund the common activities, e.g. the police, roads etc and not EARNED INCOMES of Wanjiku who walks from Korogocho to work while starving.

We shall quote from the same article as above what all this means to Kenyans:

"We reiterate that in the face of reason and facts, the imposition of artificial or legal right to property or that idle coinage of the brain which has no basis in the laws of nature, which therefore, violently overthrows the natural right to property, is the root cause of the Kenyan mess.

It must be the root cause because it servers the NATURAL CONNECTION between LABOUR and its REWARDS. This artificial right to property creates a class of idle rich men who are not inventive. More so, since their natural wants are already met, and are idle, out of their low imagination capacity they come up with fancy and unreal wants and expensive vanities to meet their whims. Unfortunately, since they occupy the highest positions in society, their love of expense sets the fashion or the example which is copied by those below them. To copy these idlers is the beginning of corruption which eventually corrupts the whole society as it falls into vice and crime."

I am definitely not a fan of Raila Odinga, but if he takes action on Mudavadi i will give him his props, populism or not. Then pressure definitely has to be put on Kibaki.

Whatever you think of Raila...he may have upped the ante on corruption fight. But KACC also needs to be strengthened to prosecute Raila should push on that too.

who knows Raila just MAY redeem himself if he fights the good fight.

Yes, you are right. Without reaching the masses, it is all in vain. More so, things are challenging because we live in an age when the media, schools, religion, politicians tells that:

- that peace is to be found in war,

- that freedom is to be found in slavery,

- that wealth is to be found in indebtedness, and,

- that truth is to be found in lies.

All this is pulling us away from our fragile inheritance of reason, rationality, and enlightened discourse on the REAL menaces we face.

In the fullness of time, these truths will be self evident even to the babies.

Will I ever hear someone say: the Weak Leaf Muzalia Mudavadi must? Must? Must koooooooh! Can I get an AaaaaaMEeeeeeeN on this one?

It is very hard to believe that what went on during the 1980s is still going around in 2010. The older Mudavadi like many politicians of his ilk, appropriated for themselves a lot of plots in Nairobi and large parcels of land and parks around the country.

Weak Leaf Muzalia Mudavadi inheritated some of what was left behind* by his father in Westlands, Kabete, Muthaiga, Parklands, Kileleshwa, Lang'ata, Karen, Ng'ong, Sukari, Mugoya and Runda, not to mention the south coast and north coast of Mombasa and Malindi.

The real question is how far back should the collaborators including lawyers and agents (greedy insiders, hyenas, vultures, rats, spiders, reptilian bankers) be prosecuted for the serious fraud which they have committed against the people of the Kenyan republic?

Why should efforts be wasted on cleaning out the current stench of corruption while looking the other way (turning a blind eye) when it comes to dealing with the old stench from the recent past and its overwhelming side effects?

Why not clean whole the stench and clear the whole historical culture that still breeds it?

The band-aid effect will never work.

*No human ever brings forward their earthly belongings when the expiry date is due or when their mortgaged souls are repossessed for interplanetary relocation.

Anonymous said...

What's Mudavadi been good at in Kenyan politics?

May someone correct me if I am wrong. He's only been good at playing second or third fiddle, like many of his people from Maragoli, Kakamega, Busia and some parts of Bungoma.

They never lead a charge but love to cruise behind on other people's social pathways and political waves. They have never stood ground in any wars of old nor in battles of today.

Mudavadi must face the music and taste the same fate as Kimunya's when and if culpable traces of his Mululu wa Kalulu hands are found to have played any role in the land for cemetery saga.

The Kenya Parliament has passed a motion of no confidence on Amos Kimunya for the corrupt sale of the Grand Regency Hotel.

Presently, several nations, some

Debts that were caused by an economy catering to the export sector or to being a party to skewed international trade agreements. We are heading the same way. Instead of crying for big brother Koffi at every hiccup in our economic and political odyssey, we need to formulate local solutions to our problems. We have attempted to address this issue with examples in the latest article.

The draft constitution is the main challenge in Kenya today:

-Kenyans want anew constitution
-ODM wants a new constitution
-PNU wants a new constitution

facts:

ODM wants Kibaki to have a last term
PNU (PDM0 wants Kibaki for a 3rd term!

Reality:

-current constitution will not allow Kibaki's 3rd term. maybe the new constitution, with some amends will allow him a third part

These amendments are the real challenge!

Amend the draft and it fails in the referendum.
Even Ruto understands this situation and he supports ODmM on this, out no choice.

Are we not back to 2005?

If the draft fails, do we have any person ( of course Kibaki out) to beat RAO?

Intersting times ahead in the next 30-40 days

Not far fetched, but are there some in PNU thinking about a Military option- takeover?

Wanjiku- seems luck is on your side this time round

WHY MUDAVADI WANTED PS SAMMY KIRUI FIRED.

Both Mudavadi and Kirui had appointed their pointman, Newton Osiemo, to receive their share of the loot in the Cemetery Scandal. Informed sources say that Osiemo took more than his authorized share and handed Kirui the rest to go share with Mudavadi. Unfortunately, there is no honor among hyenas and Kirui took off with the whole package. As a result Mudavadi was madder than hell and swore revenge - Kirui had to go.

Things are even getting hotter because Osiemo has disappeared and his folks are worried that he may have met his demise allegedly to shield Mudavadi from political and criminal consequences. Osiemo is the only person who can tell what instructions he got from Kirui and Mudavadi as their agent in the mega scandal. The prayers of all good people is that Osiemo is found safe; at least, his family deserves to know where he is.

Anonymous said...

Osiemo's life is not any danger at all. The little coward may have decided to go underground for a while until the hit is off Kenyan style. In the meantime, all he is trying to do is deflect shame from what he and his "band of grave (cemetery) robbers" did in the hope that it would never come to light.

WINDFALL BONUSES Kenyan style: Ksh30 million gave rise to the 'Movoko Fleecing' of an extra whopping Ksh253 million.

By the way, since land has become the real issue in Kenya, why doesn't the Nairobi area public health officials and residents opt for the construction of solar powered crematorium?

After all, most of the 90% of the graves are never marked nor do they have tombstones sticking out for identification once the burial is done.

This is a very simple matter. Corruption and Musalia Mudavadi are twin brothers. If you do not believe me, ask Raila Odinga. He knows something about Mudavadi's involvement in that scandal we call the Goldenberg.

Now, I blame President Kibaki more than anyone else as these corruption revelations continue to emerge. Firing Permanent Secretaries alone is not enough. The repective ministers have to go.

I will repeat it for those who want to puke, if PS's in the Office of the Prime Minster and the ministries of Agriculture, Loval Government, Education and Special Programmes had to go, then the respective ministers need to go as well. And these ministers are Raila Odinga, William Ruto, Musalia Mudavadi, Prof. Sam Ongeri and Dr. Naomi Shabban. There should be no sacred cows.

Wait a minute, I just noticed the three top "leaders" in the ODM already have mega-scandals hanging on their necks barely two years into government! Talk about change, talk about gluttony!

Phil said...

Vikii,

Using your own warped argument to admonish ODM and conveniently ignoring PNU top guns; would President Kibaki be serving as head of state given the humongous scandals that continue to lace the Office of the President? Would Uhuru Kenyatta be finance minister?

We cannot talk about change if comprehensive reforms plus free and fair elections continue to give sleepless nights to Kibaki, Kalonzo and company.

There is nothing more annoying in life than a bighead who believes he knows everything even when the little he knows is so manifestly wrong.

Since you are talking of warped logics, what's more warped than the argument by your muttonhead of a Prime Minister that William Ruto should be sent packing because one of the people who work for him wrote a letter soliciting for the allocation of maize to an individual and he himself (I am talking of Raila Odinga) should be spared when his own officers do exactly that except on a much larger scale and for their own PERSONAL bebefit as opposed to that of some disabled peasant?). What is more stupid than that argument?

We are not mischievous, we are only prescribing to Mr. Raila Odinga what he himself claims should be the way to go. Don't put that back on me, take it straight to Mr. Raila and ask him to explain the difference between the indirect involvement in graft of his Deputy in the party William Ruto and his own and Musalia's. I mean this is not advanced calculus but a simple statement that people should not take the high horse and claim the low road. Duh????

So, said Kibaki very long time ago.

Kenyans Kenyans C'mon. You go to the key board with your heads clouded with vengeance and tribal vitrol. No wonder you do not see reason.

The writer said that Mudavadi did blow the whistle. Actually he wrote to Muthaura and then to KACC to investigate.

As much as I do not hold brief for Mudavadi, are we that dimwit, yes dimwit to crucify Mudavadi for taking action.? Surely,

I now confirm that majority commenters in this blog are irrational.

Can you not see through that the KACC are getting instructions from somewhere else to crucify Mudavadi?

That man on T.V. was bubbling that we just want to further investigate to establish whether he (Mudavadi) could've by omission or commission or deliberately and/or unknowingly knew or did not know that bla bla bla...

That my dear readers is enough to know that the KACC man did not actually know why they had to grill Mudavadi further, but that they had to carry out the orders.

As for Raila, whether he would want to cleanse ODM or not, why would he ask Mudavadi to step-aside. For failing to visit the grave site which he claims he was not informed of?

Mudavadi will get out of this. After all it is common knowledge that Ruto agreed to dismantle ODM from within so that the charges of corruption trailing him can be dropped, oops, (held in obeyance until the next time). Ruto ame shikwa on the balls.

Mudavadi, have to dismantle ODM now, he is the only one spoiling the party.

I've got a friend of mine who decided to investigate on some corruption in college, a student leader had been given Kshs 500,000, which he had used only Kshs 5,000. When he went deeper to find out where the rest of the money had gone he realised that the university accountant had given the student leader only Kshs 50,000.

That means the student leader had eaten only Kshs 45,000, and not Kshs 595,000. The accountant had not released Kshs 450,000, though the books shows that. On going further he saw evidence was pointing to the Vice Chanceller. That's how he gave up investigating since he knew going deeper will lead him into trouble, in which he'll loose. He realised that the biggest thief after all was not the student leader but..... you can guess.

Now to the Ministry. Following my doing internship at the Ministry I realised that for all major scandals at Ministries the Ministers are normally involved through their agents. For mega scandals like Goldenberg and Anglo leasing know that the President is likely to be involved. However for the ministers and maybe President, they are involved indirectly through them being given the money in form of gifts. In this way if you follow the law, which is what the court does, they are not guilty, though in most cases they have taken the lions share.

This is how our law is and we should forget about prosecuting any Minister because of corruption, they have simply taken advantage of the loophole in law.

Check an example of Ruto in Maize scandal. Ruto sent his agents, but there is no kept evidence that he sent the agents since they were done orally. At the same time he might have got his share in form of Christmas gifts, but then there is nowhere that indicates that these gifts came out of the proceeds of maize scandal. In other words our law cannot prosecute Ruto. He's simply innocent according to law. This applies to Ongeri, Mudavadi, Uhuru, Kibaki, Moi, Kimunya e.t.c. They are all innocent according to law.

Corruption can only be stopped using our current law if humanity ceased to be greedy and selfish, but as long as this current law exist then whoever gets power will use the same loophole to steal public money.

With due respect, we beg to differ. Human beings are not inherently greedy and inhuman as we are taught today. It is the way they are governed which corrupts man.

In this perspective, when fundamental laws of a nation entrench robbery, it is difficult and rather stupid to expect a just society to emerge from such rotten foundations. It cannot.

Let us look at USA as an example of "democracy" which it is not.

From 1778 to the adoption of the U.S. Constitution in 1789, the United States was governed by the Articles of Conferederation. Article VII stated that the expenses of the Confederation:

"shall be defrayed out of a common treasury, which shall be supplied by the several states, in proportion to the value of all land within each state, granted to or surveyed for any person, as such land and the buildings and improvements thereon shall be estimated according to such mode as the United States in Congress assembled, shall from time to time direct and appoint."

Clearly, the USA founding fathers like Jefferson intended running of the USA govt. to be met from LAND VALUES.

The question is, Why was this noble idea discarded? And, is what we see in the USA today (some big businesses are too big to fail, so, they must be bailed out by the poor) not the evil consequences of this?

More so, Clause 1 of the Bill of Rights of Pennsylvania asserted boldly and proudly:

“ That all men are born equally free and independent, and have certain natural, inherent and inalienable rights, amongst which are the enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.”

NB: (a) The words ACQUIRING, POSSESSING & PROTECTING do not appear in any Human Rights Instruments of today. Why? Why? Why?

(b) since the landowners, shipper, traders and lawyers were the majority in adopting the Declaration of Independence, they did not allow such momentous a declaration to receive the stamp of their authority. Deciding to give the people the form while strangling the substance, they omitted the mighty doctrine that every man was entitled to acquire and own property. Having betrayed the people, they gave them a meaningless phrase that every man is entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Let us recall that we are taught we have free enterprise today. Well, we do not have such a thing.

What we have a legalised robbery. This is so cos, the teachings of physiocratic economists like Fran├žois Quesnay, who taught Adam Smith were adopted by the powerful and wealthy very selectively to favour them.

In simple words, let us stop kidding ourselves and obey the words of Kant that the "use of the right to the earth's surface which belongs to the human race in common" would "finally bring the human race ever closer to a cosmopolitan constitution".

After all, The Bible in Ecclesiates 5:9 declares that “The profit of the earth is for all; the King is served by the field."

If you are a church goer, ask your pastor the meaning of this verse.

We cannot refuse to arrange our affairs in accordance with natural rules of justice and expect peace.

No, it will never happen for there must be consequences of disobeying eternal laws just as there if you jump from a cliff.

CARTELS Footprints, WAR on CORRUPTION and runaway trains

The GRAVEYARD AFFAIR is text book example from the boardroom of the financial wing of THE CARTEL whose motto is to have a HOLD ON POWER transcending centuries - hence the name TRANSCENTURY. A run down of its portfolio shows a chronology of theft scandal and deliberate mismanagement that will leave your mind “boggled”


1. A network of ethno-political appointments in different ministries synchronised to co-ordinate paperwork and transfer looted public resources and finances with little disruption.
2. A network of non-existent foreign companies & lawyers as a safeguard against investigation.
3. Foot-soldiers: to mask the main players and use as fall guys when the need arises.
4. Propaganda lies and innuendo reported as fact in “their newspaper” to hoodwink citizens
and send them in perpetual merry-go-round in search of facts & truth.
5. Smokescreens to solicit congratulations instead of reprimand when “something big is going down” – watch the constitution and how it will be mutilated as we are focused on Hon. Mudavadi, the CALL has gone out.

These are just political games to dampen the impact of TINGA´s WAR ON CORRUPTION [TWOC] through propaganda of association – associates have to be dragged through the mad to tarnish his image as his war on corruption has fired the imagination of citizens, they are finally screaming for blood - “IMEBAMBA”

PNU or is it PDM current position is not to fight corruption as is being demanded by citizens but to disrupt TINGA´s WAR ON CORRUPTION even if some of its OWN will have to be sacrificed. 278 million in this hyper blown cemetery scandal are peanuts compared to what’s at stake - the recovery of billions upon billions stolen that are able to transform the lives of every man woman and child in Kenya. This pre-emptive move is quite transparent. Imagine the sum if only TRINITON proceeds had to be forcefully recovered – but that will not happen in a hurry, but it should, si zote ni mali ya uma!

The MOTTO has to be upheld by all means necessary, if the status quo changes, consequences will be grave indeed! The collateral damage that has been taken for protection is just a cost of doing business .To understand PNU/PDM look at it in terms of a PRIVATE CORPORATION with close knit shareholders - you will then understand their action on the ground and what motivates and drives it. The recent re-organisation with a “SUPREME COUNCIL” ala AYATOLLAH RUHOLA KHOMEINI is quite a REVELATION it shows there needs to be tight control as the situation is getting dire. The “mosquito” read RAO is in DA-HOUSE and is all set to air the master’s dirty underwear.

Talking about runaway trains – do you think it makes sense that out our RAILWAY now RVR, which was build with a lot of blood sweat and tears is currently registered in SEYCHELLES ? - Of all the places – what’s wrong with registration in Kenya where the Railway is located? - it’s the same crowd which shouts the loudest through its ethno-political wing about Kenyan issues to be solved in Kenya and not to involve foreign entities when it suits them, the important thing right now is to set the FORCEFUL REPOSSESSION PRECEDENT.

Lets keep our eyes on the draft constitution – a word by word analysis of the amendments to be floated should be done to see exactly WHO it benefits and HOW. Wanainchi should reject the draft in toto if OUR INTERESTS are not protected. The magnitude of RETARDATION as a nation, forced down our throats all these years is worse than TREASON. A lot is at stake and its time we crack this abnormality once and for all.

Think again and be very vigilant as a cornered cat scratches back, but thanks to the INFO-AGE the paws are showing one by one. Citizens should be chanting BRING-IT-ON, with all this exposure we are sure moving in the right direction.

Let’s continue the good fight for one Kenya with equality and justice for all.

ALLEGATION, ALLEGATION, ALLEGATION

"The report in question records an allegation by the council’s legal affairs director, Ms Mary Ng’ethe, claiming that Nairobi Mayor Geoffrey Majiwa had introduced a Mr Newton Osiemo to her as a business associate of Mr Mudavadi and that he would take care of the Deputy Prime Minister’s interests in the scandal."

Give us a break - the main saga here is the FORGERS involved, what else have they forged to loot the nation and who are thier associates.

Anonymous said...

Osiemo has given a statement with a sworn affidavit that he was not in hiding neither was he representing the DPM nor the PS and that...KACC has not even sought him for questioning yet they are busy stating that he is in hiding!!

the DPM has pointed out in his personal statement in parliament that he was the one who requested the investigation. KACC chose to leak an incomplete investigation report to the media even before they delivered the letter to the PM and Muthaura to whom the said letter was addressed to and copied!

Ordinarily and according to the law KACC should finish their investigation and hand over the report to the AG seeking consent to prosecute (not to PM, as was the case)

part of the report quoting Mary Ngethe and alluding to the link to DPM is innuendo..... that they think whoever received the 59M may have bought a plot in Karen!!! Dont they have documents to show who bought the land??

There clearly was outright theft in the whole saga, but there is also a great effort to drag in ( rightly or wrongly ) the DPM into the saga and make maximum political capital out of it.

If Mudavadi ate he should face the music like the rest of them, however, what KACC or the hand that controls them did was to botch a good case for political expediency!!

All it needs is a good lawyer to point out that KACC did not follow the law that set it out in purporting to leak the report, and kenyans would be the losers in the matter in court. What a shame for PNU machinations.

Anonymous said...

A suspended accused, accusses somebody else through an allegation - Can that really stand in court.

KACC is wasting our time and money even following such leads, they should not be a propaganda mouth piece - they should come out with facts not leak innuendo from somebody cought in the till to confuse issues.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

One does not have to be a supporter of ODM or PNU/PDM to realize that Kenya continues to be screwed over and over by cabinet ministers, parliamentarians, wannabe politicians, civil servants, a blemished judiciary system, rogue lawyers, unethical bankers, well connected hyenas, the toothless ACC, and a media that has lost sense of why it is even there in the first place.

As always tribal ODM/PNU goons will continue to defend their corrupt kingpins to the tilt regardless of the ongoing pervasive corruption in various government ministries, corporations, industries, universities, colleges, schools, hospitals, prisons, religious institutions, 70% of NGOs have become the ... poster child of sanctioned corruption,

- cemetery saga,
- maize scandal,
- overpriced government vehicles,
- outdated military helicopters,
- never ending ghost road construction projects,
- importation of counterfeit, expired, placebo medications,
- theft of ammunition,
- ministry of tourism and the tourism industry under the control by foreign cartels,
- illegal sale of immigration documents and national IDs to citizens and foreigners,
- illegal dumping of toxic waste on Kenyan soil,
- illegal dumping of hazardous chemical material into Kenya's rivers and lakes,
-importantion of counterfeit goods [you name it] from China, Abu Dabi and other Asian, Arab and East European nations.
-smuggling of indigenous wildlife, wildlife and valuable artefacts
- carte blanche medical experiments by foreign pharmaceutical companies and entities on Kenyan soil,
- illegal dumping of unwanted products by some unscruplous NGOs and donor agencies.

Odmers are of course right to say the mudavadi case has been politicised. But am guessing pnu knew all along that raila's war on graft was all about politics. Raila told ongeri to step aside because his ministry (not him) is in the dock. The same with ruto. So now pnu says mudavadi should step aside because his ministry (not him) is in the dock. Raila comes out to, as standard puts, gallantly defend mudavadi and says the war on graft should not be politicised. Exactly the same thing kibs had said. Of course pnu knew raila cannot let mudavadi go. But their point has been made.

Chaps, we are one irrational bunch. pnu cannot let its tribal overlords go and same for odm. We love these tribal overlords and we defend them even though we do not personally know them. So the war on graft is an illusion, as most things are in kenya.

The PNU/DPM line was RAO has no powers to fire. Now all of a sudden the ones who shouted this on the mountain tops wants RAO to fire.

RAO the smart politician made his point already. The afterplay for the galaries is just & is informed by panic.The electorate now that.

If we agree that he can fire I have not heard him revorking the suspention of Ruto and Ongeri. You cannot have your cake and eat it. thats the second point he is making.

I have just been doing some simple arithmetic on the Kshs. 24m value the press has been quoting the cemetery land to be worth. For 120 acres this translates to 200,000/= per acre. 50 by 100 ft (1/8 acre) plots in that area go for at least 300,000/= per plot. The Government Valuer claims he is still waiting for NCC to facilitate inspection of the property for valuation purposes, meaning they have not carried out the valuation. Where did the Kshs. 24m value originate from?

Raila's supporters are one silly bunch. Kibs cannot fire mutavati without consulting raila. Raila cannot agree to such firing because: mutavati goes, western vote goes. This is why raila's supporters are all over the place asking for proof of mutavati's involvement in stealing the money. Can one imagine what we would be reading if this had been "kalooser's" ministry? First it is very hard to prove a minister personally ate, because they eat through tusted agents who can never expose them. I suspect mutavati wrote to muthaura after learning that there was a report implicating him. He knows no one can prove anything against him, but that goes for most ministers. And where is the political responsility raila introduced to us? About ksh.300 million walked without the minister knowing, although the ps says he knew! Wakenya wacheni ujinga.

He he he he. These greedy maggots got it all wrong this time again. I always tell you that these guys have no strategy. They are also greedy only thinking for now.

See now. KACC credibility is on the line. How can a body like KACC write a report on assumptions. It is assumed this it is assumed that.

That Ag. KACC boss saying that we want to further investigate DPM to see if he was directry or indirectry or knew and was in the know oro ifi he by omission or commission deriberately or inderiberately is involved in this.

The DPM who is supposedly the culprit actually comes out with factual points how money was paid to these thieves long before the identification of the said plot.

What a sham job KACC has done. These mongrels are used to using every thing to manipulate to kill their opponents. No wonder they make sure that every body is headed by their own. TRIBALISTS.

This time they've used KACC who have really let them down.

Mudavadi go go go
Reveal since you can do a better job than KACC, reveal all the details to the public, let the public know the truth of who did what when where and how.

Toboa, these people without aibu. The plan by PSC (another one being used) is to insert the age limit to bar Raila from going for presidency. These mongrels already fear that Mudavadi would be ODM presidential candidate should they succeed in their Naivash plot. That is why they want to smear him in advance.

They know that they've already destroyed Ruto. But what they do not know is that Mudavadi is not destroyable. He is forthright focussed and gentle. Only hasty payukaring unsteady children like Ruto can be used.

They intend to mutilate the draft constitution for their selfish ends and not for Kenyans. They only think for now and not for tomorrow. What they do not realise is that whatever they put in that constitution will work against them when they will be on the other side of the fence inevitably.

The plot thickens.

Now someone is calling raila smart. His "fight" against graft was a god-send for pnu. I suspect the intel community has details of the scams going on in every ministry. After rao talked of political responsibility, pnu must have said: let's expose odm ministers' scams to help the pm in his fight against graft! Raila was forced to defend mudavadi. This "proves" to kisiis and kaleos that his call for ongeri and ruto to step down was personal and political just as kibs had said. Remember there are no people called kenyans: that's why I have talked of kisiis and kaleos. And trust me they are getting this message loud and clear. Raila may be well intentioned (i dont know) but he is certainly not smart. His desire to look good with foreigners will finish him with the kenyan tribes.

Phil, do something. Your party may be no more in no time. This a nasty game. I think kibs decided to finish odm immediately after the coalition was formed. The party had 3 main pillars. He has taken the kalenjin pillar and he is now working on the luhyia angle.

Corruption fighting back.

Good Rao for refusing to ask DPM to resign. The group urging you to ask DPM to resign are the same ones who said that you have no powers.

Good that you told them that you've got to consult. If consulting, let the dury erected only authority let Ruto and Ongeri step aside first before the innocent whistle blower is asked to do the same.

Just piecing up the pieces. The so called Chege allegedly had a clean deal with one Osiemo and even had an agreement signed. Chege allegedly got money from City Council and paid Osiemo.

Some woman somewhere tells KACC that because Osiemo is know to Mudavadi, then it must be that the money he was paid must have been given to the Minister.

A question to KACC. Are Ministers not human beings who are related to, friends to, neighbours to, cousins to and are they not former associates of, school mates of, neighbours of some ordinary person somewhere?

Another question. Can anyone of the above not do business with any organization, company, corporate, ministry because the persons heading those organizations are or were known to them?

WHO, tell me WHO will investigate KACC?

I now believe Mutahi Ngunyi when he said that Kibaki and his troops are not asleep. They plan 24 hours. That what Kibaki says is not what he will do.

Some commentators in this blog have always wondered why RAO keeps on revealing to the public everything they've discussed with Kibaki in the private.

Some fake analysts imagine that it is RAO's effort to show put a show that they are working well with Kibs. FAR FROM THE TRUTH.

Simple logic. The reason lies in what Mutahi Ngunyi have always been trying to say.

In other words, Mutahi Ngunyi have been trying to tell RAO and all the rest of Kenyans that RAO should not trust this man. When you discuss, blow it out immediately before he changes his mind.

Have you ever wondered why Kibs have never come out to deny that they did not consult or talk with RAO?

Raila's problem is his adviser, one miguna miguna. This fellow had been admitted in UON to study BA (general). That is the degree they give to those who shouldnt have gone to uni but were just invited to see how a uni looks like. After he fled to canada, they allowed him to study law on the basis of social promotion (they do this with a lot of third worlders). Now that's raila's adviser for you. All he knows is hurling insults at others, which as makau mutua said is a sign of insecurity. He is intellectually insecure but thinks his insults and goliath size will intimidate others. Allowed to call himself a barrister and to practise refugee law then ends up forcing himself on the refugee women. How come he has never addressed in a kenyan paper the rape charges, and he likes to respond to everything.

Got the message right? The treasury released the cash before negotiation procedure was finalized.

Did a ministry full of PNU know something about this deal?
Then, Muthuara took time to react after Mudavadi blew the whistle. Why was Muthaura reluctant? Was PNU planing something.

And then a PNU woman in the City Council claimed that a lawyer Osiemo was representing Mudavadi when cashing a lions share of 59m. Can you believe this PNU woman? I am neutral, but I cant believe her.

Mudavadi blew the whistle and it seems that PNU organized the scam to finish him, so that they can take Western Province in 2012. Tha is the plan.

This is the exact issue we are trying to address. The incessant need to please foreign masters in exchange for donations or an imagined international status is what partly ails Kenyan rulers. Build a reputation for progress in the neighborhood. I wish more informed anonymous would stand up and be counted so we may form a coalition of reform at the next general elections

This Raila must be very powerfull. I have a feeling he is very feared from reading this blog, everybody seems to be against him, its ironic considering that he has no powers as stated here many times.

How does he manage this feat . can somebody explain to me without using abuse of hearsay. I guess I will not get a straight answer.
