Bashir's Ransom Wins, Court's Warrant Rubbished

Update: Now that Fatou Bensouda of Gambia is destined to succeed the voluble Louis Moreno-Ocampo, Kenya has been left with her face plastered with eggs after the 'brotherly' support of Tanzania's CJ Mohamed Chande Othman flopped. The shuttle diplomacy can only save Bashir and no more (read Ocampo6).

------------------------------------
High court Judge's decision to issue a warrant of arrest to Sudan's sitting President Omar Al-Bashir is the ultimate test on judicial independence from executive meddling. The Government never saw it coming or if they did they must have dismissed it with a wave of the hand confident in the old ways of doing things. No wonder they wasted no time to trivialize the not only as insensitive but irresponsible and unpatriotic too.

With predictable impunity and bravado, Foreign Affairs Minister Moses Wetangula, a lawyer himself, has indicated Bashir is headed to our shores courtesy of Kenya Government's invitation. Hiding under so-called IGAD head of states meeting will not fool anybody from the masked brinkmanship. In plain language the executive is reminding the courts who is the boss, period.

Where others see judicial activism, Wetanguala reads destructive insensitivity to national and regional matters of peace. Omar Bashir wouldn't have been happier holding the whole region at ransom with regards to peace in Southern Sudan. And he has neighbouring allies who are more than ready to irk ICC for obvious reasons.

The script is so predictable seeing foreign hands lurking in every shadow. While Bashir sponsored the Janjaweed to butcher (ethnic/black) Africans, our ears will be assaulted with drums of war castigating the West for imperialism. In the process the butcher of Khartoum will have his bloody hands cleansed with sectarian and racial detergent in the name of IGAD and/or AU.

By inviting Bashir to Kenya again the Government is rubbing salt to the wound it inflected on our national body in August 2010 during the new constitution's promulgation. If we ever thought that act of obtuse impunity was unfortunate and regrettable, well the Government is reminding all and sundry KENYA IKO NA WENYEWE.
You see with no spine to remind Sudan that the ruling was an act from our independent courts, Wetangula is circumventing the core issue to serve political expediency by throwing the balderdash that expulsion of ambassadors is a normal thing.

Poor Prof Githu Muigai must be precariously dangling between the rock and the dark blue sea. Like Wentangula he knows the LAW is LAW but again he knows which side of his bread is buttered and by whom. Damned if he acts professionally and damned if he does an Amos Wako.

While we try so hard to please murderers they (Arabs) look at us as monkeys swinging on trees, LOL.

But on another note Africa for Africans. We must be left alone to sort our own problems even it means wiping villages clean of human beings. Who knows, maybe we need this phase to cleanse ourself before we stabilize and start that match to prosperity using GOLD money.

I'm not a person who thinks s/he can have it all, but I certainly feel that with a bit of effort and guile I should be able to have more than my fair.

Let Moses (Wetangula) and those concerned continue with their foreign affairs endeavors plus their so called short sighted diplomatic games when it comes to enticing the like of Bashir back to the one time promised land courtesy of Kenya Government's invitation.

Some of these career politicians seem to have had a very good time (for all it was worth) with the late Muammar Gaddafi, a one time certified ATM machine for so many African head of states.

Let them have it all and continue to have more than their fair share at the people's expense.

However, no body lives forver, no politician remains a member of parliament forever, and no head of state rules ('leads') forever.

Lest we forget the fact that Laurent Gbagbo just had his presidential suite upgraded, and there are many tainted African heads of state who will soon have their future dinghy quarters upgraded at the ICC as well.

Does the country, ordinary Kenyans for that matter, stand to benefit or gain tremendously in terms of cheap crude oil importations (Bashir's Ransom) from Sudan?

The type that will translate into affordable petrol prices at the pumps across the country as well as many other petroluem based products at our nearest shopping centers through out the whole of 2012 and 2013?

If that's the real case, then let the devil we have known for years be allowed to return and walk freely on our soil, but knowing very well that the blood that flowed for many years in South Sudan as well as more blood that continues to flow in Eastern Sudan (Darfur) will always be upon us due to our current greedy modus operandi and that of future generations to come.

"High court Judge's decision to issue a warrant of arrest to Sudan's sitting President Omar Al-Bashir is the ultimate test on judicial independence from executive meddling."

Ati judicial independence? Wapi?

In Underhill v Hernandez (1897), the USA's Chief Justice Fuller, speaking for a UNANIMOUS court held that:

"Every sovereign state is bound to respect the independence of every other sovereign state, and the courts of one country will not sit in judgment on the acts of the government of another, done within its own territory.

Redress of grievances by reason of such acts must be obtained through the means open to be availed of by sovereign powers as between themselves."

As such, in Common Law jurisdictions, courts ARE BARRED from adjudicating cases that will interfere with foreign relations.

This is the practice in the USA, UK, Australia etc.

As a matter of fact, when cases touching on other states appear in the USA, UK etc, the Courts REQUESTS the Foreign Ministries to issues a certificate on whether the determination of such a case would interfere with foreign relation issues. If they say yes, the courts just refuses to hear the matter.

So, when Taabu tells us about independence of Courts, can he educate us where he saw those courts?

Then leave us sons and daughters of Africanus to believe what we have always heard and are still so used to hearing from A.D. 650 to 1000, through 2011, without bothering to verify.

We have no idea about such ages.

However, we are aware of the USA's Supreme Court, recent ruling (Sabbatino case) on these matters that:

‘The act of state doctrine does have “constitutional” [this is a LIE AGREED BY LAWYERS] underpinnings.

It arises out of the basic relationships between branches of government in a system of SEPARATION of powers.

It concerns the COMPETENCY of dissimilar institutions to make and implement particular kinds of decisions in the area of international relations.

The doctrine as formulated in past decisions expresses the strong sense of the Judicial Branch that its engagement in the task of passing on the validity of foreign acts of state MAY HINDER rather than further this country’s pursuit of goals both for itself and for the community of nations as a whole in the international sphere."

NB: If you want to have an idea the purpose of this LAW for LAW is LAW to quote Taabu, and which we encourage Professor Githu to use, see our article:

There is a Mzungu in Wako's Office, for some hints.

We can't just wish away the crimes against humanity - genocide, summary executions, murder, torture, rape and other forms of sexual violence, persecution and other "inhuman acts", allegedly committed not only under al-Bashir's watch, but were officially sanctioned by the head of state in Khartoum.

Talking about knowing our history, who we are, where we came from, and our very our origins.

Well, how can we know our real written history when it only starts at time when the first Europeans ventured into our East African region.

And went on to discover for the first time such natural wonders like River Tana, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Kenya, Aberdare Mountains, Great Rift Valley, Lake Elenmtaita, Lake Naivasha, Menengai Crater, River Nile and its fresh water source, Lake Victoria, and Lake Rudolph [apologies it's Lake Turkana]?

Before the glorious arrival of the Europeans, Africa was nothing but a dark continent, so we have always been told at every stage of our lives.

Whoever said that history never fails to repeat itself could not have been more correct than we, the defenders, supporters, friends and former neighbours of al Bashir will ever imagine.

Case in point - I will continue to work with all countries of the world, but I will never give up 'our' sovereignty - Laurent Koudou Gbagbo.

While at the same time the former self-proclaimed president for life of Ivory Coast failed and even refused to address the obvious presence of the elephant in the room, which was the constitutional restriction of on Presidents serving more ten years.

The rest is history as we know it, and so will the fate of al Bashir come to pass in due time.

He may never be extradited to the ICC but will get his just desserts in due time.

You imagine that, those who oppose the KANGAROO ICC are pro - Bashir.

Nothing of the sort. We oppose it because, we know more about these regions.

We may start by asking, who is Bashir?

An answer to that you can find in the works of Churchill, for, in very eloquent language, he taught us this:

"Although the negroes are the more numerous, the Arabs exceed in power. The bravery of the aboriginals is outweighed by the intelligence of the INVADERS and their superior force of character.

During the second century of the Mohammedan era, when the inhabitants of Arabia went forth to conquer the world, one adventurous
army struck south.

The aboriginals absorbed the invaders they could not repel. The stronger race IMPOSED its customs and language on the negroes. The vigour of their blood sensibly altered the facial appearance of the Soudanese.

Hear this carefully now:

In the districts of the
NORTH, where the original INVADERS settled, the evolution is complete, and the Arabs of the Soudan are a race formed by the interbreeding of negro and Arab, and yet distinct from both.

The qualities of MONGRELS [LIKE BASHIR] are rarely admirable, and the mixture of the Arab and negro types has produced a DEBASED and CRUEL BREED, more shocking because they are more intelligent than the primitive savages.

The stronger race soon began to prey upon the simple aboriginals; some of the Arab tribes were CAMEL BREEDERS; some were goat-herds; some were Baggaras or cow-herds. But all, WITHOUT EXCEPTION, WERE HUNTERS OF MEN.

To the great slave-market at JEDDA (ADD the TRANS ATLANTIC TRAFFIC] a continual stream of negro captives has flowed for hundreds of years.

Thus the situation in the Soudan for SEVERAL CENTURIES may be
summed up as follows:

The dominant race of ARAB INVADERS was unceasingly spreading its blood [RAPES], religion, customs, and language among the black aboriginal population, and at the same time it harried and enslaved
them."

So, if this is the history of Sudan since A.D. 870's, how the hell do you think the ICC can solve it by indicting Bashir?

You must have a firm grasp of history of these regions before you jump and down like a SICK dog with simplistic and ignorant solutions.

What does Ocampo know about these things?

Or, you think his legalistic nonsense is the magic solution to problems that span over a thousand years? Grow up!

Anyway, as usual, since Africans do not understand THEY ARE SURROUNDED by enemies who pretend to be their friends, we leave to enjoy:

Charity begins at home and so does real justice.

The high court judges should not be wasting valuable resources, manpower and time in getting embroiled in international wars of judicial illusions and prosecutorial fantasies.

While knowing very well that so many former top Nazi henchmen went scot free and were even allowed to resettle themselves as free men in Central America, South America, North America, South Africa, Australia, and in the Pacific islands.

Where many of them ended reinventing themselves and later dying in relative peace and unimagined prosperity during the late years of their lives, 70s, 80s and 90s.

The so-called Kenya's high court judges should be busying themselves with the issuance of over due arrest warrants with regard to hundreds, if not thousands of cases that have conveniently been allowed to go under the radar for all intents and purpose during the course of the last ten years or more.

They should leave the international arrest warrant of al Bashir of Khartoum to be taken be implemented or care by the ICC and other relevant jurisdictions.

And intsead concentrate on dealing with the institutional cultural failure that has enabled systemic rot, corruption, murder, theft and the ongoing conduct unbecoming members of the Law Society of Kenya and one of the most civil services in Africa (second to Nigeria's civilservice) to go unchecked, contained and eradicted for four decades.

Further, the corruption, pillaging and seizing that goes on in the civil service needs to be stopped immediately by the high court judges, if they have the the real mandate (judicial balls) to do so.

While they are still at it, there are some top dogs at the DoD and MoD who have had very easy rides with regard to high level corruption and theft of very expensive government property in the last four decades and half.

The above mentioned are the type of dangerous individuals and criminals that the high court judges should be pursuing by all legal means necessary.

Case in point; One senior person at the DoD saw it fit to reverse the whole tendering process, just to accomodate the company (N.K. Brothers) in the bidding process.

A company (N.K. Brothers) which has had difficulty in meeting its monthly targets in one of the projects at at the Kenya Military Academy.

Lest we forget the ongoing saga that involves Mlolongo Brothers, former property owners in Soykimau and the Kenya Airport Authority.

Well, where are our so-called concerned high court judges when they are needed most to address a myriad of pressing domestic criminal cases and other judicial issues in Kenya?

Thanks for the reference.

Now, Samir argues for end of capitalism so that, we end up with socialism.

The problem is this. First, he ought to define what capitalism really means.

Capitalism comes from the word capital. And, what is capital?

Capital is nothing, but, crystallized past human labour.

In other words, when you cut a tree and make a table, you can use that table as capital by renting out to someone else.

As such, capitalism really means, an economic system whereby, the PRESENT LABOUR is combined with PAST LABOUR so as to produce MORE WEALTH.

Simplified further, you use your present labour to plant seeds gotten from the previous season.

What is wrong with that? And, how else can it be?

And, will not socialism not operate under the same conditions for there are no other?

In other words, he has not thought clearly what he is saying or telling us.

"I deduce from this that the development of the struggles on the ground, the responses that will be given through these struggles to the future of the peasant societies in the South (almost half of mankind) will largely determine the capacity or otherwise of the
workers and the peoples to produce progress on the road of constructing an authentic
civilisation, liberated from the domination of capital, for which I do not see any name other than that of SOCIALISM.

The real challenge is therefore as follows: will these struggles manage to converge in order to
pave the way – or ways – for the long route towards the transition to WORLD SOCIALISM?"

Listen KID!

Socialism entails INTEGRATING PLANS and SOCIAL CONTROLS like those of ancient Sparta and is a by - product of BIG GOVERNMENT and BIG BUSINESS. In other words, socialism is TYRANNY. As a matter of fact, we do have global socialism as we speak.

If Samir would attended an African Teacher school, he would have been educated of failure of Socialism in:

- ancient Sparta,
- Ptolemaic Egypt,
- Ancient Sumeria,
- Ancient Rome,
- China under the Szuma Ch'ien 145 B.C. etc etc.

This guy in China, in introducing his socialism in 145 B.C. said socialism was needed:

"... to prevent private individuals from reserving to their sole use the riches of the mountains and the sea in order to gain a fortune, and from putting the lower classes into subjection themselves."

NB: Read Samir Amin's Lecturer 1 and it opens like this:

"The principle of endless accumulation that defines capitalism is synonymous..."

Can't you see the SAME, SAME ILLUSIONS, DELUSIONS and CHILDISH FANTASIES as of this ancient Chinese?

Since he does not know history of humanity, he deludes himself with his global socialism.

@Kumekucha,
Help some of our wannabe judicial kingpins like Ojimba or Ojiboa, whatever his name is, understand that now is not the opportune time to mess with nusu-Arabs like al Bashir of Khartoum, while our troops are busy on the frontlines.

With all due respect to some of our people living in the coastal region of Kenya, the real descendents of the Omani, Yemeni, Saudia, Shirazi, Lebanese, Misri, Baluchi, Portuguese, et al that have no nusu-Arab Sudanese ancestry.

Anyone who has lived, schooled, worked or even risked being friends with nusu-Arabs (Sudanese of course) will know by now that their retaliatory methods and measures are always the same and very predictable in deed.

To say the least, al Bashri like most of his nusu-Arabs from that part of Africa, will definitly find ways and the means to sabotage Kenya's security efforts along the northern-and-eastern border corridors.

They know what Eritrea is all about, and we have always known what Eritrea has been up to since the days it picked a costly fight with one of its neighbour.

So, they wouldn't hesitate to be used as messagers, carriers and shelters for al-Fulanis in Somalia if they're guaranteed some much needed financial and petroleum assistance they have desperately been searching (dying) for siince their economy went belly up.

Some of us may not agree with Waziri Wetangulia Mbele, but the bottom line is that now is not the opportune time to provoke our former neighbour, al Bashir and his nusu-Arabs from that region of Africa.

It's not worth the political aggravation and cost in terms of a protracted instability along the north-eastern border corridor of Kenya.

Let's pick our enemies and fights wisely and deal with the select few in the best way possible, but at the same time, leave al Bashir, nusu-Arab alone, and let the international community deal with his legal affairs.

Kenya does not have the political, military, legal and financial muscle for dealing with al Bashir at all.

At what point can the end ever justify the means in the context of criminal justice in Kenya?

Kenya needs patriotic high court judges and lawyers who are courageous enough to inform the public as to what's wrong with the current judicial system and why.

And how 89.9% of LSK members have failed the public, helped block legal reforms, and how they can make amends and slowly begin to restore the ailing and corrupted legal society back to its one time rightful and respectable place in Kenya.

Otherwise, pariahs they shall remain for decades to come if the can no longer distinguish themselves from their current competition, the fork tongued and double barrel mouthed politicians of the Republic of Kenya.

Anonymous said...

There have been many instances over the last nine years in which well-confirmed cases of criminal wrongdoing were later shown to have been thrown out of court, dismissed, or left unprosecuted due to unknown reasons, or due to obvious underhanded dealings that bear the traditional signature of the rot and endemic corruption that still lingers within the judicial system.

Usually, the culprits are allowed to bribe their way out in order to avoid being prosecuted, or they are protected by some well connected politicians and other powerful entities who normally collude with the prosecutors by inducing them to look the other way and let the crimnal cases to lay fallow as was the accepted tradition during the dark political era of the 80s and 90s.

Practically speaking, I'd advise the so-called concerned high court judge who is trying so hard to go after Bashir, to stop worrying too much about the international arrest warrant issued against Bashir, without ever forgetting the real evil that continues to be perpetrated in eastern Sudan, but to pay much needed attention on what's been taking place within Kenyan borders, especially the post-election violence and the consequent death toll, and take some overdue legal action against those involved.

Right now, there are those among us who have been laughing out loud and wondering at the same time, whether the high court judge was trying so hard to score some potential political mileage on the domestic scene and among his peers by engaging in wasteful legal gimmicks of desperately seeking to have Bashir arrested if and when he steps on Kenyan soil.

While the known perpetrators of post election violence, looters and former neighbours who forcifully grabbed all the properties belonging to the surviving victims as well as those who perished have yet to be brought to justice in 2011.

Nonetheless, as the saying goes, KENYA IKO NA WENYEWE who have always believed that they're above the law and the rest of us, except when the bell tolls for them.

Any leadership, be it that of lawyers, politicians etc which believes that, Africans issues can only be sorted by foreigners is a leadership unto slavery.

Let us give you a hint for your world view is limited like that of a CHILD.

When Arabs started their world conquest, the Roman cruel rule in the North Africa was crumbling.

So as to remove the yoke of the Romans, the Africans joined hands with the Arabs.

What was the result?

The systematic pushing of Africans from North Africa which is STILL ON GOING.

NB: Didn't you see that in Libya the other day under the protection of NERO HOOVER Obama?

NB: Bashir and Obama are the same thing.

Just as an example, the ZULUS of South Africa used to live in East Africa. Their journey to the southern tip of Africa was an act of running away from Arab slavery over a 1000 years ago.

In other words, the Arabs who came as liberators, became the new masters and we are still trying to sort out the mess 1500 years later as you see in Sudan today in 2011.

In other words, do not deceive yourself that, the West is coming to rescue you.

No, they, West, Jedda, China etc are INVADERS who will do what invaders have always done in Africa for THOUSANDS of years now.

Reminds me of the village rastafarian who sings and yaps to lyrics he never comprehends. When you think reggae makes you authentic it only succeeds in exposing DELUSION.

You refuse to realise you are a great fool when you delude yourself that YOU KNOW ALL and everybody else is foolish. You never build a career nor become a scholar by being a serial irritant trashing everything to hide your insecurity.

@Kumekucha,

Pardon the interruption for a moment.

Don't I just hate to remind some of you that I told you so when I said I have always been anti-colonial.

And my Ph.D. dissertation which is titled Belgian Education Policy in the Congo 1945-1960 is all the proof that's necessary at this stage of the commentary.

Hence, I need to be respected whenever I claim that I am an authority in all things Africa, especially Congolese and why the ongoing elections continue to add up to many other institutional failures from the colonial era and the despotic era of the one time mighty King of Zamuda, the oen and only, General Mobutu Sese Seko, conqueror of all worlds in and around the Congo Rain Forest.

I have always maintained that if the Congolese are to confront the future with realism they will need a solid understanding of their own past and an awareness of the good as well as bad aspects of colonialism.

I have also argued for decades and on record of course, that it would be just as misleading to speak of generalities of 'white exploitation' as it once was to talk about 'native backwardness.'

And one of the reasons why people like Mwarang'ethe calls me a certified dodo member of the ivy league of fools is due to the fact that brainwashed mbunis like me (Kin al-Krich and Tembo clan) still see colonialism as a complicated thing with good and bad effects rather than a terrible with collateral benefits.

Did I just allude to the fact collateral benefits did precipitate from a terrible thing (erea) like colonialism?

No I, Jin al-Krich, didn't but I think I did somewhere in between my so-called Ph.D. dissertation that was written at a time period when 98.8% of Kumekucha members were not yet born. No offense intended by the way.

Anway, pardon me for my usual ignorance and especially for always sounding like a benign despot - that I have always been - with a colonial subtext: Until I bring you the benefits of civilization, we will regard you as savages that we (the clan of Jin al-Krich) have always known you and your continent to be for the last couple of centuries.

I remain as always, yours truly,
Jin al-Krich*.

FYI, Jin al-Krich* is the old fox from the marshlands of warped conservatism, who still wants to be the next leader of the United Republican States of North America, and he can't wait to implement his so called 'Contract with the Americas' if he manages to outwit, outlast and outsurvive the Son of Kongelo (spl) in the eagerly awaited wrestling match of 2012.
