AG Amos Wako has always been a very careful man. But recently the pressure was so much that he was forced to name names. By doing so he has put the executive on the spot and probably saved Kenyans from a lot of grief.
Folks, judging by how the government has reacted to some very serious allegations, it is more evidence that the changes made in the draft constitution at the government printers were ordered by President Kibaki himself. This is hardly surprising when you consider that the NSIS cannot do anything without executive approval, more so if that particular thing is illegal. (Sadly these kind of executive games happen all over the world with spy agencies. Remember the recent case where Mossad assassinated somebody in a Dubai hotel?)
If anybody else were responsible the NSIS officers who approached Wako to make changes and he declined have already committed a criminal offence and should be arrested immediately. Those less naïve Kenyans know that this will never happen. Instead fraud squads and all kinds of smoke screens have been put in place (if they had their way yet another commission of enquiry would have been appointed to investigate the matter).
And yet it should be an open and shut case. If the altered document had been printed in River Road that would be a different matter. But the fact is that it was printed at the Government press. Who has access to the government press? ONLY the government of the republic of Kenya and the messenger in this case was from the NSIS, and so it is crystal clear where the order came from.
We brought out the champagne way too early my dear fellow reform-minded Kenyans. We forgot about the powerful and terribly wealthy anti-reformists. These guys will do anything. And I mean ANYTHING, to ensure that the new constitution is NEVER passed.
You see as I have said here many times before, the new constitution is NOT about Kadhis courts or abortion as some of our extremely naïve brothers and sisters have been fooled into believing. That explosive document is about changing the status quo and way of life of the filthy rich and influential in Kenya.
Indeed William Ruto’s “No” campaign needs to be looked at in new light. For those who look to make money during political campaigns, kindly note that the money is not going to be in the YES camp. It is in the NO camp and the sly Ruto may just have found the perfect way to raise funds for his 2012 campaigns. Just watch and see the kind of money these guys will pour to defeat the new constitution.
So what is Mwai Kibaki’s motive this time? Could it be that he is under considerable pressure from those who own Kenya and will lose grip with the passing of the new constitution? I am currently digging around in search of the answer to that question.
P.S. President Kenyatta played similar “executive games” in the late 60s when he at one point heavily financed both the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga camp and the Mboya camp within Kanu. He was of course with the Mboya camp but did not want the Odinga camp to know what was happening. And so Kibaki is not the first Kenyan president to publicly support something and secretly route for something else. My book Dark secrets of the Kenyan presidency talks about aspects of the Kibaki character and presidency that many Kenyans have never known.
