Where is Miguna Miguna?

Miguna Miguna is supposed to be on a world tour to promote his book. However this is where he really is;

"With his name in Kenya’s headlines every day, the towering 6-foot-4, Mr. Miguna, in bright, flowing African robes, sits thousands of kilometres away, in a mostly empty cafeteria on the campus of Seneca College in suburban Toronto. He is staying in the college’s dormitory with his wife and five children on what he says was a preplanned summer vacation."

Oh yeah, come, baby come.

Well, the media is not fair to MM. The media is disturbing Miguna's well-planned HOLIDAY. And who said staying in dormitory with 5 kids cannot be a vacation? It is AUSTERITY, stupid.

Just look at these condescending descriptions:

1) Miguna's voice booms and his eyes bulge behind the glasses that have slipped down his nose ........

2) Miguna's antics has captivated Kenya’s boisterous media

Kumekucha,

Excuse my diablo advocatus related digression, plus rants and raves for a moment or two.

Just could not help myself but fall for the bait by asking what is really going on?

And who are among the crowds of enthusiasts who have already joined or rather jumped onto the caravans of circling wagons loaded with crews - from various media houses - and seem to be rejoicing in cohorts with vengeful legions of jilted lovers and one time partners from a certain political sphere?

Talking of enthusiasts and jilted political partners who are currently very busy poking fun and slinging calculated jokes at Miguna Miguna, while at the same time singing wild chrosuses about the special accommodation arrangements he made for himself and his family while on vacation abroad?

By the way, were some of the enthusiasts expecting Miguna Miguna to reside at the Toronto's equivalent of the Waldof Astoria, where executive suites go for $7,000.00 to $12,000.00 per a night ('half-day')?

Or were the irked revelers hoping that Miguna Miguna would end up staying at one of those exclusive hotel resorts where rooms cost $2,250.00 per a night.

How can we, the people, even forget the fact that $2,250.00 per a night is no where near the $10,000.00 purported to have been spent on a single men's dress suit picked from the rack of a speciality men's store in North America, by one of Miguna Miguna's former fair-weather comrade in arms during the good old days of generating resistance against the police state under a former village tyranical regime.

And who knows how many more $10,000.00 dress suits have been purchased over the last four and half years by some of the very former comrades in arms who now busy tweeting and poking fun at Miguna Miguna's personal vacation format for his family while abroad.

Mmmmmmm! $10,000.00 per dress suit? What about the belts, or the$3,450.00 high end Loius Vuitton handbags (among others) that are strictly purchased for special recipients, 'regular friends of firends' and spouses?

Miguna Miguna, the frugal family man, traveler and vacationer deserves some real credit for not getting intto the lavish habits of flashing his hard earned money down the drain, in the hopes of trying to impress the Kenyan crowds that seem to suffer from collective amnesia.

Luka,

MM wasted words. To dare he could have just said one word "KALENJIN".

Did you know that Kalenjin translates roughly as "I tell you."

So come (nyo) .......

Peeling Back The Intricate Details of Miguna Miguna's Toronto Vacation.
______________________________________________________________________
Part 1.
How many of us have been to or rather visted Seneca College?

Well, it is not necessary any more, because in this day and age, all that an individual who is based many oceans away from Toronto needs is to login and take a virtual tour of the Seneca college in 3D.

Seneca College has four (4) main campuses, and a total of ten (10) campuses located throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Each campus has its own academic specialities. - senecacollege.ca

And yet, SECOAATE (Seneca) as it was once referred to by resident Kenyans students during the 70s and 80s, is still a very young when compared to the majority of colleges and universities in North America.

Seneca was established in 1967, at around the same time when RIAT - Ramogi Institute of Arts and Technology - was also established on the hills west of the Lake Nyanza (Victoria).

So, what is the connection, if any, that exists between Seneca college and RIAT?

Why even bother mentioning the two institutions in same space or topic, while trying to peel back the intricate details of Miguna Miguna's well deserved family vacation in Toronto?

Anonymous said...

Part II.

Unbeknown to many Nyanza residents as well as Kenyans from other regions of the country, the Soviet Union, present day Russia, donated over twenty million dollars during the late 1960s, as initial funding for the RIAT.

Twenty million dollars was a lot of money five decades ago, and it is still a lot more money in 2012.

So, where did the money go? Where did the funds end up?

How comes RIAT never rose to the heights or stature of let say the United States International University, Day Star University, Catholic University, Aga Khan University, among other universities in the country?

What become of the intended university on the hill west of the Lake Nyanza ('Victoria')?

Anonymous said...

Part III.

Imagine for a second, what would have happened to our country economy, engineering sector and progress in other areas had 20,855 full-time students and another 75,000 part-time students been granted the golden opportunity or life-changing avenue to pursue their dreams of a better education at a very well constructed Ramogi Institute of Technology dating back to the 1970s?

A Ramogi Tech Unversity similar to the USA equivalent of Georgia Tech (www.gatech.edu), Louisiana Tech (latech.edu), Caltech (caltech.edu), VirginiaTech (www.vt.edu) and above all, one my of favourite institution - besides the regional kalaba politics -, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology (www.technion.ac.il)

The peeling back of the intricate details of Miguna Miguna's family vacation will follow soon. Just be patient.

Anonymous said...

From part I-II the script is very clear. No need to peel the mask:

Jaramogi (and by extension RAO) must have pocketed the money.

That is past, gone with the wind (corruption/nepotism, etc).

Next peel please!!!!!

Part IV.

Let's not induldge ourselves with the usual ancient narratives of political persecutions and regional marginalisation at the hands of one unforgiving ruler of Kenya during the 1960s and 70s.

There are times when some of us -individuals and groups of people - should bear the full resposibility and any blame for whatever or half of what ocurred during the period of political turmoil, economic stagnation and - self-imposed - social isolation.

At times it's so easy to scapegoat the old man, Jomo Kenyatta for every lttle thing that went wrong at time in our regions and for the ripple effects that are still being felt to this day and in some of our lives.

But the old man must be credited for never taking any portion of the twenty million dollars that were donated to his political archrival by the Soviet Union, during the height of the Cold War era.

So, where did the funds go? Who took the money? And why were the funds not used to benefit the region and people of Nyanza as was intended earlier on?

The other six individuals - part of the Kiambu cartel - who took the nine million dollars that had be given to Tom Mboya by the Americans, are well known, because they are the same people who went on to seize most of the huge tracks of land (ranches) and real estate properties that once belonged to Josiah Mwangi Kariuki.

The questions remains, what became of the intended dream project of Nyanza's equivalent of Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology?

A project that was supposed to be jump started and later brought fruition by the twenty million dollars and subsequented funding form the Soviet Union?

Part V.

Hey, I found your nose, it was in my business once again. - Anonymous.

A lot of people who have been laughing out loud and relishing about Miguna Miguna's choice of accommodation, and the fact that he decided to spend a portion of his vacation around the Greater Toronto Area, would be very surprised at how luxurious some of the guest suites are at the Seneca College.

Most of us are very much aware of the fact that life is hard. The hardness of life, the struggle it presents us nearly every day, is easy to pass over, but difficult ultimately to ignore.

So, who among some of us would pass, forfeit or let such rare chance slip away when the opportunity to take a break from the rat race - no offense intended - in order to relax, recuperate, and rejuvinate while at the same time spending some much needed quality with loved ones avails itself?

Further, some of the other excellent Seneca residences are composed of suite-style units containg two bedrooms, a bathroom and kitchenette.

Unlike the average dormitory-style Spartan accommodations some people were once used to or shared during their campus days at Nairobi, Kenyatta, Moi, Egerton, Strathmore, various teachers colleges, et cetera. Or worse during their boarding school days.

Miguna Miguna could have booked himself in a cheap in Toronto and lied about staying the Sheraton, Marriott, or Hilton, but his not the kind of creature that loves to showcase or stage manage their lives for the heck of it, like some people in our midst.

By the way, the Kazi Kwa Vijana initiative could benefit a lot from Workforce Skills Development as well as Continuing Education and Training progams offered at Seneca College.

Things could have been a lot more different for the Nyanza region, had some courageous soul, individual or a close aide had the vision to peel back the elaborate decorative layers of political designs etched on the mask that belonged to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga during his heyday. The rest is history.

While you "debate" MM, and such RUBBISH, we wish to warn Kenyans of a plot to strengthen the OLIGARCHY which RUNS YOUR DEMOCRACY!

All this is led by a DUPE and a FANATIC called Dr. Boni Khalwale:

"A parliamentary committee wants the powers of Finance minister clipped to give the Central Bank of Kenya AUTONOMY on monetary matters.

The committee has recommended that the Treasury fast-tracks the tabling in Parliament of a Bill guaranteeing CBK the necessary independence to enable it to undertake its operations effectively."

NB: When bailout, DEVALUATIONS, INFLATION time come, the CBK will be INDEPENDENT!

Anyway, since knowing where MM is sleeping after writing his USELESS BOOK, is more important to the Kenyans, we retreat in peace to continue enjoying:

They use MONEY and PENALIZE the POOR, and

the IVY LEAGUE of FOOLS FOOLISH graduates are mere DUPES & FANATICS:

The so-called Nyanza's equivalent of Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology would have not taken off given Jomo's powers. It may sound cheeap rhetoric to downplay Nyanza's marginalization during Kenyatta era but you only succeed to fool yourself.

Make no mistake, Jaramogi was no saint just like his son Raila. But re-inventing history with WHAT-WOULD-HAVE-BEENs is cheap intellect.

Anonymous said...

Rhetorically, there are people who have always claimed 'marginalization under the Kenyatta regime' as their exclusive reserve, in order to score more political marks.

And to justify why so many self-anointed leaders from their community, including their close relatives and family members are currently occupying certain powerful positions in the so-called coalition government of 2008.

Including other positions such as diplomatic missions, civil service, academic institutions, as well as positions of influence in the private sector, et cetera.

When in reality, the very same group of people - with a chip on their shoulders and a very severe sense of entitlement - have been and still are very oblivious to the fact that Kenya is comprised of over forty-one-plus ethnicities.

And not just two ethnicities, or five major ethnicities - Gikuyu, Luo, Luhya, Kamba and Kalenjin - as it has always been erroneously portrayed in the last five decades.

For the record, there are many other communities and regions in the country that were relegated to the extreme fringes of Kenyan society, not only during President Jomo Kenyatta's era, but also under the last regime of _______, whose name is never mentioned in my father's former village or among our people for obvious reasons.

Unfortunately, there have been no improvement of any kind whatsoever for the relegated communities, while it's been business as usual for the government and other agencies as was the sad case for many communities, dating back to the early 1960s.

As far as the powers that be are concerned, those of us from the communities that have been relegated since the 1960s to this day, do not exist when it counts or matters, and in many other cases, we are there to be seen and not heard at all.

Simply put, we are still being treated by the government leaders and people from the major enthicities as if we were second class citizens in own country in this day and age (2013) - fourty-nine years after indepedence.

That is why It Is Not Yet 'Uhuru' for many of us from the minor ethnicities of Kenya.

Some Kenyans have been so accustomed to waking up and smelling the coffee or whatever it is that has envigorated them for last five decades.

But the time has come for them to wake up from their deep ethnic slumber, and to change for the better so that they can begin to relearn how to recognize and accept other Kenyans from the minor ethnicities as equal members of the Kenyan society, and rightfully so in accordance with the new Constitution.

The vast majority of Kenyans know who Dr. Boni Khalwale is by now, and others may also know who he was dating back to his days in secondary school, high school, Chiromo and as a newly elected MPig.

How about you humble yourself for just one day, and let the public take over the task of comparing and contrasting your highly acclaimed credentials and resume with those of 'The Bull Fighter" Dr. Boni Khalwale.

Are you aware of the fact there is prescription relief for suffering from anxiety, sorrow or pain, because at times you sound so rationally impoverished

Is the otherside of history very unpalatable to those who have always wished otherwise? Why let small things sweat you six months before the general election?

The issue of COULD HAVE, SHOULD HAVE, WOULD HAVE is ancient history. The next task at hand is to brace yourself for March, 2013, when victors will be celebrating, while the vanquished left wallowing in the agony of defeat and disblief for another five or more years.

If we view marginalization broadly then we will see how ubequal Kenya is. Imagine insisting on degree qualification (despite its stupidity) for MP upwards. While for every square mile in Central/Nyanza you would face stiff competion, you can hardly count a handful candidates in most ASAL regions.

Mourning the past won't help our course. But we can use it to inform our future having learned the bitter lessons. All else ni hot air tu, DOMO DOMO.

You are an example ignorance applauding herself in her malice. Bwa ha ha ha ha he hi hu hu we wu wu wu wi wi wi

It is the role of Dr. Boni to cure those who are PHYSICALLY sick. As such, if he were to find someone sick from malaria, cholera etc, we would expect Dr. Boni to do all he can to save that life. For that wonderful job, we applaud and bow to him.

Likewise, when it comes to cure of ignorance such as yours, it would be an absurdity to urge a DISCIPLE of truth to run way. Thus, a true teacher must be able to "live" with the ignorant so that he may cure them if he can.

The point is simple. What Dr. Boni proposes, SHALL affect very negatively you and your children for many generations to come.

Whatever MM wrote in his USELESS BOOK, has ZERO EFFECT on you and your children.

This being truth, why the hell do waste your time with useless stuff when someone is scheming how to enslave you?

Anyway, since wewe ni kichwa maji, we leave to enjoy:

They build YOUR schools,

to brainwash Dr. Boni on the the MONETARY MATTERS, and

then use him as a DUPE & a FANATIC so as to ROB Wanjiku of her CORN:

Who couldn't agree more with the DISCIPLE of truth, the one and only truth teacher of nothing but all things pertaining to the truth and only the truth.

We couldn't have put it any better than the way the wise one, DISCIPLE of truth among the ignorami has already done, however, when is her or his next book on truth serum (sodium pentothal) going to be released, now that the likes of John Githongo and Miguna Miguna have upped the ante?

Sincerely,

Ignorami.

Does the role of Dr. Boni Khalwale include providing mandated mental health care to patients with over-inflated egos, or is it limited to the eradication of common tropical and subtropical maladies?

Any latest news on the recent whereabouts of Miguna Miguna? Has his book been translated from English to French, German, and Swahili?

A lot of people work their whole lives trying to preach "truth" to people they consider to be ignorant masses and never quite reach their goal of spreading the truth according to their homemade versions of truth by the time they reach the age of sixty-five, seventy-five or eighty, if they happen to be lucky enough to live that long. Best of luck.

Peeling Back The Mask is the culmination of Miguna Miguna's political culture shock, deep disatisfaction and frustration that begun months after he found himself working within the inner political circles of one of the partners in so-called Kenya's coalition government.

The book provides a brilliant moving opening and closing account that rests on the counter productive powers of a leader and his trusted senior operatives who have lost sense of their political mission and embraced impunity.

The book goes to echoe and elaborate what happens when the oppressed become the oppressor, outsiders become insiders to the point of ending up drunk with unlimited political, social and financial powers.

Miguna Miguna's concerns are not existential, psychological, political, or individual, but a warning shot, or rather a wake up call for the general public that has become so addicted to complacency.

A collective national behaviour that already begun after the general election of 2002 and is still prevelant in 2012.

He was shocked, dissatisfied and frustrated simply because, he was and STILL is living in that wonderful world of DELUSIONS, ILLUSIONS and CHILDISH FANTASIES.

If we ask, what mission?

Is throwing phrases and high sounding names a mission?

Talk of Miguna Miguna and a very familiar text from his book rares one of its critical heads, in which the readers are given glimpses and stands as a rebuke against Musalia Mudavadi's own complicity with the main forces, principalities and powers that nearly transformed the country into heinious ethnic killing fields.

Musalia Mudavadi has far too often been a seasoned purveyor of status quo and a keen embracer of those who have a vested interest in maintaining impunity and a stranglehold on the Kenyan people.

From a political standpoint, a firm stance against individuals like Musalia Mudavadi, lords of impunity, tribal chieftains and other unsavory characters mentioned in Miguna Miguna's book, can form a rallying cry for Kenyans from all walks of life who continue to resist the powers of political, social, tribal and economic injustices (evil) that have dominated the whole the country for the last fourty-nine years.

Interestingly, Musalia Mudavadi never up at both Kilaguni and Serena Hotel. Musalia had been expected at Kilaguni and had confirmed his attendance. ...

But Mudavadi neither showed up, nor telephoned to explain why he hadn't shown up, despite members of our team - Raila, Orego and I - trying reach to no avail.

My suspicion is that Mudavadi, being natural survivor, knew that there would be fireworks at Kilaguni.

He is known to have no stomach for controversy or a fight, partly I think because he likes to be loved by all sides, but also because, not falling out with people, has allowed him to emerge as a compromise candidate.

Mudavadi never learnt an important lesson during his time at university: no body succeeds without taking a calculated risk.

He can't be President if he isn't ready to scarifice something. It's as simple as that: overcaution is cowardice and Kenyans have repeatedly shown their disdain for political cowards
- Miguna Miguna.

Political cowardice like Musalia Mudavadi and others - galore - who are still crawling within the powerful inner sanctum of PNU, ODM, inter alia.
