In the last few months and weeks, we have heard and read in our mainstream press a lot about the crippling inflation that Kenyans have to grapple with. For instance, see this: “The ‘Kadogo Economy”. To many Kenyans, the rising prices have come as a shock because all they have been hearing from the Ministry of Truth and Lies, the main pressitute and the Haruspices in our universities, is how our economy has been growing since the 2008 preliminary violence. We say preliminary for the worst is to come. If you believe the ICC has solved our mess, then, you must be inspecting a lot of entrails of the sacrificed animals.
However, it seems apt to note that, to the faithful readers of Kumekucha, all this is not coming as a surprise. And, even better, those who have acted in accordance with economic, social and political truths revealed at Kumekucha might weather the gathering storm in a better shape than those who faithfully rely on the main pressitute, the Ministry of Truth and Lies and our Haruspices.
So, what could have Kenyans learnt from Kumekucha and not the Ministry of Truth and Lies, the main pressitutes and Haruspices? Sample this:
On 19th April, 2011, the Standard reported this: “An unprecedented rise in the cost of living has ignited a new war-front in the labour market after the Government called for a review of wages.” In this article, which is available here, we are reading among other things that:
“According to a price survey conducted by COTU for selected consumer products and services it was revealed that on average prices have increased by 107 per cent between 2010 and 2011. COTU blames the Government for using a poor consumer price indices method and argues that prices of basic commodities purchased by low income workers are obviously higher as they purchase in small quantities from low level outlets.
"COTU demands that the National Bureau of Statistics makes a presentation at the National Labour Board pointing out the merits and demerits of the new system and the effect these methods has on the labour market because the use of the new method is less representative." The Government recently adopted the use of Geometrical method rather that the previously used arithmetic method in measuring Consumer Price Indices, which tends to understate the Consumer Price Indices. "The system should be reviewed as the social partners were not adequately consulted," Atwoli added.
Now, if Atwoli, who is supposed to defend the economic interests of workers (however, unions are not the best means of doing this, but, is a topic for another day), was a reader of Kumekucha and not main pressitute and a listener to the Ministry of Truth and Lies and Haruspices, he would have read on May 13, 2010 in an article entitled: EPZs and Modern Slavery: Who Shall Tell Wanjiku the Ugly Truth – Part 1 these truthful words:
“So by Kibaki, Raila, Kalonzo, Uhuru, Musalia making inflation seem low when it is not in reality, the Wanjiku's wages can be suppressed further down "scientifically." With suppression of Wanjiku's income a mission accomplished, it is time to invite the foreign infestors into this paradise where Hakuna Matata, with their free dollars from the FED into our EPZ's.”
He and other suffering Kenyans would also, have found the same message in the article “Kibaki is NOT a Brilliant Economist” published on May 27, 2010, where truthfully, it was stated that: “As we go forward, let us bear in mind that, these inflation figures are a falsification of Kibaki/Raila government and the real inflation figures are over 20%.” We also added that:
Thus, under Kibaki and Raila’s government, the POOREST and the most vulnerable Kenyans lost more purchasing power than the middle class and the super rich. If you turn to page 9 of this report, you will see that, food prices were second to Tusker and Sportman in price increment. Ironically and tragically, it was the food’s component in the inflation “basket” that, this government has reduced so as to calculate inflation in accordance with “international standards” as if people of Kibera eat as per international standards, whatever that means. Is this how a “brilliant” economist runs a nation? How can a man who runs a government that subjugates the poorest due to its monetary and energy policies be termed as a brilliant scholar? We ask scholar of what?
Having read these truths, he would have been informed and perhaps, could have demanded truth in inflation calculation. By doing so, he would have saved Kenyans from the agony they are undergoing right now. While at it, do not forget to read the first two comments made by very deluded persons in reaction to this article. These commentators typify the Ivy League FOOLS.
Also, so as to cushion the workers he “represents” from the raging inflation, Mr Atwoli has been very focal on the need to raise wages. It is for this reason, we are reading this: “COTU issues 14 day wages ultimatum” in an attempt to emphasise his useless seriousness. All this we can read here. Among other things, he tells us this:
"We expect a response before or on that day so let us wait for the response because you know that we, as workers, don't demonstrate - we just strike - and when we strike everyone will know. Our stewards at the grassroots are just waiting for our word,"
Once again, Atwoli and other suffering Kenyans would have been better informed if they were readers of Kumekucha. They would be aware that, asking for higher wages is just singing in the rain for the truth is laid bare in the article entitled: “Kibaki is NOT a Brilliant Economist”, where these words can be found:
However, the failure of standard economics since 1945 which men like Kibaki are schooled in, has led to a catastrophic failure in understanding the essence of colonialism. The essence of colonialism was and is to prevent colonies from developing manufacturing industries which are subject to INCREASING RETURNS. Having prevented development of industrial sector which are the source of HIGHER WAGES, and sources of high growth potential, they then, fasten on us the Malthusian activities which are subject to DIMINISHING RETURNS.
In other words, just like our brothers in Haiti, as stated in the article: EPZs and Modern Slavery: Who Shall Tell Wanjiku the Ugly Truth – Part 1,
“... to attract these jobs back, i.e. be competitive, it must lower its wages and expand the freedom to poison its Lake Naivasha so as to grow flowers for Western "lovers". For how to do this, Kibaki, Raila, Uhuru, Kalonzo's government can offer consultancy services on setting special EPZ's and the AGOA which Mrs Clinton came to celebrate with us the other day in Nairobi.”
Sadly, Atwoli, lost in his own world of fantasy and delusion like the Haruspices from the Ivy League of FOOLS, continues to lament that a lot of foreign investors were taking advantage of the cheap labour in the country in total disregard of the human rights of their workers. Quickly, we may ask, is the ongoing currency depreciation not cheapening of the Kenyan labour? If that is our policy, how the hell do we complain of cheap labour? Anyway, to avoid “complicated arguments,” in his own words,
"We have hard working Kenyans- both men and women- and they must be paid well. If you think there is anywhere you can invest and exploit labour you should go there other than indirectly enslaving our people."
Now, once again, if Atwoli and other Kenyans were readers of Kumekucha, they would have instructed by these words of truth:
“Question for YES people - So, if this is the condition of our economy and the “new constitution” has not fixed it, how do you meet the economic and social rights as well as devolution demands? More so, there is something else we seem not to understand. It is the real meaning of “free trade” under which we are operating. This is a simple analysis. The imperial nations export capital to our nations for two reasons. These are the development of low cost sources of food (coffee, tea, fruits) and raw materials required by developed nation’s factories (copper, oil etc). By exporting capital to us, these nations can keep wages for their labour a bit low because basics/food is cheap. This ensures that, their profits for future investments are not squeezed too much. If free trade for the rich is meant to preserve their profits, what do we seek to preserve on our part? We answer debt, poverty and ignorance and conflicts over shrinking cake.”
These words, which would have sobered many, would have found in an article entitled: YES, Even Dead Fish Foes with the Flow” published on May, 21, 2010.
As concerns the MAIN ISSUE, i.e. the money issue, we are reading that, the Industrialisation assistant minister Ndiritu Muriithi and his friend MP David Ngugi has accused the Treasury of giving three banks money at low interests which these banks are in turn lending at high interest rates. The story can be read here.
Once again, the fact our industrialisation assistant minister (forget about it, no industrialisation is going to happen in Kenya under the new laws), has never heard of Kumekucha is obvious, for he would have read in article entitled: “Why We Reject the Proposed New Constitution” published on May 5, 2010. In this, he would have read these words of truth:
“A governance system that, legalises a conspiracy between a man decorating himself as a central banker and another calling himself Barclays or Equity to put some ink on a paper and thereby, demand from those who create wealth to part with 15% - 20 % of the wealth they create, in exchange for this useless paper which costs these conspirators cents to produce, is not a Free Markey System, but, socialism. When these two conspirators are not "loaning" Wanjiku their useless paper so as to rob her, the central banker issues another paper he calls a government bond. The conspirator calling himself Equity takes this bond and in return, he gives back the useless paper he originally got from the central banker. In this modern magic, these modern medicine men tell us, the mere mortars, that, this is open market operation. By this abracadabra, they create so called public domestic debt which must be paid with usury. So as to pay back the banker, Wanjiku’s little wealth that was spared by the first ngeta/robbery, must be robbed via taxation. To dare believe that, a document which enshrines such devilish principles of socialism and fascism will emancipate Wanjiku, is the most dangerous delusion we know of.”
As concerns oil, we have read and heard a lot from Stephen Mutoro of Consumers Federation of Kenya (Mutoro, hello comrade). We have also, heard our learned friend (check where he went to school to MASTER); Mr Namwamba wants the Parliament to investigate the cause of increased prices. Once again, if any Kumekucha reader can get Mr Namwamba, please, direct him to read Kumekucha for it will be more useful than forming money guzzling and inflation generating Parliamentary committee which the committee will be investigating. For instance, in the above article, “Why We Reject the Proposed New Constitution,” Namwamba and his friends would have read this:
“... under the monetary system proposed in this document, we will have established a monopolistic structure which allows a few connected thugs to corner all the money from the source (remember YK 1992?). Once they corner this money, they do not invest this money in the productive sectors of the economy. No, they buy governments debts, speculate in land and stocks. Since such money creation does not meet real value creation, it creates inflation. This inflation affects those on fixed wages and the poor most. Having messed their ability to earn for themselves, we turn around and create a welfare state to take care of these people. What a deception!”
Also, if he read Kumekucha, he would have come across these words:
“As if the monetary madness is not enough, we are now staring one of the greatest resource/energy crisis humanity has ever faced. When this crisis fully hits home, many will gnash their teeth because, it will destroy civilisation as we know it. More so, it is the disorganised nations like Kenya/Africans nations which will bear the greatest burden of the forthcoming energy crisis.”
We then added this:
“Now, we know that, almost all of us have been led to believe that, if only we remove this leader, if only we use aid well, if only we are less corrupt, if we have a new constitution, Kenyan will march on to become a rich nation by 2030. We deny all this as madness. We even go further and assert that, things will not get better, they will get worse. In other words, expect more corruption, crime, disorder and general decay and perhaps total state collapse. Is this not too pessimistic a view? Yes, we agree.”
And, the kicker was these words:
However, if you understand the core message we are trying to communicate, you will appreciate why we are so pessimistic. However, more importantly, we hope, each one of us will play his/her part, so that we can steer this Titanic before it hits the rocks. This is crucial because our governments are not prepared for this crisis and therefore, we must prepare as individuals. ... The best way to understand how a society functions and therefore, malfunctions is to understand the energy question. In other words, a well organised society is totally dependent on leaders appreciating the meaning of energy and how its distribution influences what a society becomes. However, our leadership has no clue about this issue. For this reason, we are and we shall pay a heavy price very soon.”

Now, so as to “fight” the inflation and economic chaos they have created, the masters of universe are proposing “solutions” And, dear reader, just know this. The oligarchy that is central banking system, is about to unleash its poisonous fangs as we read here, that: "Most African central bankers are shy about bearing their teeth but they’re going to have to," said Satchu, he of the Citi, a bank that has been bailout out three times in the recent history by the central bankers. In other words, when it comes to Citi billion bailouts, the central bankers must shy away from bearing their teeth. However, when it comes to the subjugated, central banks must show all their ugly teeth. In other words, be very very afraid, for the productive sector and labor must be further subjugated (neo feudalism) to preserve the oligarchic and plutocratic economic system. Isn’t this special dear reader?
So, if this is the record, can any of the established pressitute, the Ministry of Truth and Lies and the Haruspices in our universities (do not even mention the Pharisees in our churches and mosques) claim to have offered such foresight and shown such a penchant for the truth in the real stuff? If not, why continue listening to their nonsense?
However, should you decide to listen to them, due to understandable cognitive dissonance, remember, you are doing it at your own peril for the three plus the Pharisees are united to LIE at all times so as to PLUNDER you while blaming Jupiter, Juno and Minerva for the poverty.
