Tana River Clashes Expose Lack of Leadership

By KK Blogger

The silly season is here. Civil servants are leaving their 'plum' jobs to join politics. Well, the move betrays all that is wrong with Kenya. You see everybody wants a piece of the pie without making any effort to bake the same.

So will new and different faces like those of people (soon to be former insiders) like Alfred Mutua and countless others make any real difference in the overall governance of the country as well as in the lives of the Kenyan people after the 2013 general election?

Sadly, the ongoing carnage, and massacre of the Pokomo and Orma people of Kenya is a residual effect that occurs when a so-called dysfunctional democratic government has failed its people, not just once, not twice or even six times, but has failed its citizens over and over and over again in the course of the last five decades in terms of providing basic human rights and basic services such security among others.

Hence one of the many reasons why people in affected communities end up taking matters in their own hands with deadly consequences rather than opting to seek legal solutions from the judicial system that has been nonexistent in so many remote regions of the country such as in the Tana Delta for decades.

Of course there is no justification whatsover for the ongoing violent hostility and revengeful murderous assaults on children, women, the elderly and unarmed men among the two communities that have resided on either side of the Tana River.

However, those charged with the overall adminstration, security, community policing and most of development - which has been 100% nonexistent - in the region are to blame for the frequent outburst violence between the two communities who have been each other's nemesis since the era when the powerful King of Massylii relinquished his rule that had extended all the way up to the Tana Delta.

On the other hand, lest we forget, talking of the rest of us, who live far away removed from some of the remotest areas of Kenya, the ongoing bloodshed in the Tana Delta is neither politically engineered nor ethinically motivated at all.

Basically, it has been about the struggle for survival and scramble (deadly at times) for the control of scarce resources, namely grazing space and fertile farming land along the Tana River.

Cycle of violence

Further, murderous assaults similar to the current one among the Pokomo and Ormo have been allowed to take place in the past within different regions of the country, such as the 2007/8 post-election violence, Likoni (Mombasa), Mt. Elgon, Trans-Mara, Moyale, Marsabit, Isiolo, Mandera, Laikipia, Aldai, Trans-Nzoia, Mathare, and Kibera (third largest slum in the world, - our national pride and world monument of abject poverty - hell's village (inferno) on the African continent).

All carried out in the struggle for the control of scarce basic resources in the afore mentioned regions.

And unfortunately, it will be business as usual for the next president, senators, governors, parliamentarians, women representatives, elected local officials, and new police commissioner (or inspector general).

Including the well connected, the wealthy, elite, so-called civil society, social-cum-political activities, tribal political chiefs, tribal war lords, common ignorant foot soldiers, and above all the sanctimonious religious leaders.

Civil servants?

The use of word CIVIL assumes that Kenyans are CITIZENS. No. they are SUBJECTS.

As such, it is ridiculous to call LORDS civil servants. They are the LORDS who lord over the SUBJECTS and they can never be SERVANTS.

That one mistake corrected.

"So will new and different faces like those of people (soon to be former insiders) like Alfred Mutua and countless others make any real difference in the overall governance of the country as well as in the lives of the Kenyan people after the 2013 general election?"

No. So, never ask such a question again.

"Sadly, the ongoing carnage, and massacre of the Pokomo and Orma people of Kenya is a residual effect that occurs when a so-called dysfunctional democratic government has failed its people, not just once, not twice or even six times,.."

Where did you go to school?

As usual, ILF where they do not teach the meaning of words which allows you to throw words anyhow?

It is impossible to have a dysfunctional democratic government.

These three words CANNOT be used in the same sentence unless you are deceiving or deceived.

So, look for the correct word to describe how Kenya is governed, but, stop misusing the name democracy.

"Hence one of the many reasons why people in affected communities end up taking matters in their own hands with deadly consequences rather than opting to seek legal solutions from the judicial system that has been nonexistent in so many remote regions of the country such as in the Tana Delta for decades."

You betray ignorance of the Kenya and world history.

Centralized judicial system of the MODERN ERA, which we can trace to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 was not instituted to provide SUBJECTS with justice. Never!

Specifically, in England where you BORROW your LAWS and PRECEDENTS, these Normans set themselves to DESTROY and VANGUISH the POPULAR justice system.

Having done this, they centralized JUDICIAL FUNCTIONS in the hands of the PRIESTS.

Later, some of the PRIESTS became what you call LAWYERS and then MONOPOLIZED LAW.

NB: Check their dresses!

More so, by this monopolization, they changed law from pursuit of justice to the USE OF TECHNICALITIES to DEFEAT the ends of justice.

NB: That is why even today, in Kenya, you have to be ADMITTED to practice! Just observe the ADMISSION process of the lawyers in Kenya and you will SEE the ANCIENT PRIESTS AT WORK!

"However, those charged with the overall adminstration, security, community policing and most of development - which has been 100% nonexistent..."

Who CHARGED them with such a responsibility?

This is like that FABLE of the WHITE MAN'S BURDEN! Bwa ha ha ha he he he hi hi hi we we we ra ra ra

"Basically, it has been about the struggle for survival and scramble (deadly at times) for the control of scarce resources, namely grazing space and fertile farming land along the Tana River."

Where are Japanese resources? It has none. Zero!

So, why don't the Japanese fight over scarce resources?

How can a nation like Kenya which has more resources than Japan be called scarce resource nation? This is the CRAP they put in your brain at the IVY LEAGUE of FOOLS.

Think!

Anyway, we are off to enjoy:

Interesting. This seems to be contrary to what some of us have heard and learned from _______ as well as experienced first hand when _______.

That is a very interesting perspective. Can you explain the process you went through to come to that type of conclusion?

Some of us wouldn't have thought of that other than reiterate the fact that resources is the equivalent of a stock or supply of money, materials, staff, and other assets that can be drown on by a person, community, organization, government, or country in order to function ... or necessary for effective operation.

Tell us how zero availibility of resources has worked in Japan as well as in other similar situations?

Anon @11:00 AM,

Settling old scores or recent grievances with machetes, swords, spears, bows and arrows, reaping hooks, spiked clubs, walking sticks, slingshots and at times hurling stones Kenyan style may have been discontinued in the fifteenth century and no longer an offensive or defensive military strategy for many modern global socities. Nevertheless, they are lesser evil set of weaponry when compared to the WMDs or nuclear armaments that may one day be exploited in the impending settlement of old scores between Israel and Iran, Pakistan and India, Japan and China, or South Korea and North Korea. Well, two wrongs do not make right but let the functional illitrate African communities and the very sophisticated western societies pick their poison of choice in the 21st century and beyond.

Meanwhile, Mugabe must be laughing his head off.

Sometimes back, the leader of the CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY called South Africa, which holds OPIUM taking SESSIONS regularly, bowed to the BLACKMAIL of the PERFIDIOUS ALBION.

Essentially, Mbeki was BLACKMAILED in one of those SATANIC meetings they call G8. They told him, you join us, i.e. PERFIDIOUS ALBION in condemning and sanctioning the ZIMBABWE ECONOMY so as to create SOCIAL CHAOS and blame everything on Mugabe. If you do not, consider that CHILDISH project of yours called NEPAD dead on arrival!

With that threat, Mbeki caved in. The question is, did the PERFIDIOUS ALBION keep his promise to Mbeki? Never.

Now, we are watching even the WIVES and GIRLFRIENDS of the TOILERS taking matters of LAND into their own lands. We add, just as the African Teachers have always known:

"South Africa's Marikana miners defy deadline."

Pardon the interruption at a moment when some of us are incapable or unable to comfort, let alone alleviate the severe pain, suffering and terrible sense of loss being experienced by all the victims, survivors and families who have been affected by the Tana River Clashes.

We, the people, could do more for our fellow citizens in the Tana Delta, even as some in our midst continue to call for deeper reflection on human valuation beyond such things as social class, wealth, education, ethnicity, religious and political affiliation.

In the meantime, speaking words of hope and consolation to our fellow citizens from the Pokomo and Oromo communities that have been cut off from their families, homes, livelihood and caught in very extreme violent situations, has always been an easy alternative as opposed to trying to understand the root causes and mysteries (if any) of human behaviour that always precipitated cyclical waves of inter-communal conflict, violence and consequent loss of countless lives and property for decades.

Despite the extreme lack of leadership and required presence by the government in the Tana River Delta, and the ongoing inter-communal violence, there are still flickering embers of hope that some members from both communities are willing, able and ready to resolve to make grass-roots peace and forge an alliance for combating their biggest common enemy for decades.

That is to say, ignorance, abject poverty, desease, negative ethnicity, and seasonal political manupulation that always becomes a dreaded trademark during the general elections.

All things taken in account, let peace prevail and override the ongoing inter-communal violence, although conflicts, like sagas, do not end quickly. They more often are punctuated by periodic successes or new challenges than by victory and defeat.

May the Pokomo, Oromo, Soldiers and [Others] who have lost their lives, Rest In Peace.

On a lighter note, Miguna Miguna and Joseph Githongo could have been millionaires by now had they not been born in an economically displaced sphere of the earth.

Case in point, their counterpart, Bradley Birkenfeld, a former jailed banker and whistle blower who happens to reside in the heavily endowed northern hemisphere has become a new millionaire after being paid $104 Million Award, for divulging information about UBS and tax evasion schemes that had been the modi operandi for certain institutions and select individuals for deacdes.

The hefty award or payment for services rendered, is reported to be the largest ever paid by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), an agency of the United States government as a means to spur a surge in whistle-blower complains.

And especially for inducing future the whistleblowers to never refrain from peeling back the masks of their former employers and naming the exact locations of where and when their former bosses and their henchmen find the exclusive time to eat together at the public's expense and that of their respective nations.

No wonder you are SAVED BY IGNORANCE.

The time for ensuring peace in Kenya was during the Constitutional debates/reforms.

That opportunity was SQUANDERED due to the ignorance/foolishness of the IDIOTS who call themselves learned.

We specifically informed the so called COE that, that this constitution was the LAST EFFORT/CHANCE for PEACEFUL CHANGES/governance in Kenya.

We warned them that, since their katiba as DRAFTED and PASSED in that famous OPIUM SESSION was bound to fail, they would have closed the door for peaceful change/governance.

The main point is this. As constituted today, Kenya like all African states, must be a POLICE STATE, i.e. there must continuance use of VIOLENCE and INTIMIDATION to maintain "law and order" of the grave.

Now, with the entry of the KANGAROO COURT called the ICC, which indicts even those who fight against TERRORISTS armed with NON LETHAL MATERIALS which end up killing the American ambassador who was in CHARGE OF THE NON LETHAL ASSISTANCE programme as instructed by CARTER NERO HOOVER O, in places like Libya and Syria, many will just fold their hands.

@Chris,

Ole wako! Woe unto you! For you have already been warned in advance by the police spokesperson Charles Owino, that due to deep fears and looming prospects of Mathew Iteere being hauled to The Hague in 2015 or 2017, you are now on your own the next time clashes or riots breakout in a neighbourhood, village, trading center, town or city near you, your family, friends and people.

The police commissioner and the top brass at Ulinzi House will from now on have to wait for a direct 'green light' command from the State House - which may take days, weeks or months - before they can instruct the provincial police bosses to go ahead and pass on the orders (direct from State House or the veranda of a palatial Thingira in Muthaiga) onto the OCPDs (divisional police commanders).

Who will then relay the overdue commands or so-called delayed instructions to the unfortunate, outnumbered and outgunned OCSs (officer commanding stations) and other junior officers to lead overly demoralized, unprepared, underpaid, overworked, ill-equipped and very lightly armed units of askari on the ground, trapped in the line of direct fire and caught up in the midst of rural ethnic clashes that may have already spread like wild bush fire, or urban riots gone out of control.

Unfortunately, in the worst case scenario, some of the police officers (dispensable boots) on the ground may either have already been maimed, captured, busy fleeing for their lives, or murdered as was the sad case in the last revenge attacks during the Tana River Clashes.

Where the GSU, regular police and adminstration police lost some of their finest young soldiers due to a clear lack of leadership from the State House, coupled with a blurry chain of command at Ulinzi House.

As well as the usual total incompetence and constant paralysis on part of the provincial police boss who is so worried (like all of his counterparts around the country) about keeping his job instead of protecting the public as Utumishi Kwa Wote along the coastal region, and especially in the Tana River Delta.

Woe is you! Ole wako! Woe is us! Ole wetu! May God save Kenya from itself!

What an opportune moment for the newly minted GSU graduates to be baptized by fire and to put all they have learned at the academy to better use, when and if they get to be deployed to the Tana River Delta on missions of assisting their comarades (and future bosses) with a well calculated restoration of law, order, peace as well as the facilitation of a gradual return of displaced survivors and residents back to what was once their humble homesteads, farms and ancestral lands in the Tana River Delta.

The police officers battling rioters, criminals, marauding bandits and gangs of terrorists, are frustrated by lack of adequate supplies, clear orders from the top brass based at the resort police camp in Kizingo and Ulinzi House (NBI), and enough personnel when they come under constant deadly threats, or while battling emboldened criminal gangs, and at times very well organized gangs of fighters. - anonymous middle ranking police officer.

Sooner or later there are bound to be cases of freak accidents, mysterious deaths and friendly fire claiming some senior officers who may be either behind the frontlines as usual or at various police stations and outposts.

A complete disregard for standard police protocol in emergency situations, including very deadly encounters that continue to endanger and claim the lives of many low ranking police officers operating in the cities, rural and remote out-posts, should never be tolerated within the police force and especially among those charged with internal security.

Standing police orders with regard to the basics of security, crowd control, riot de-escalation and repelling of banditry activities, that are executed with proportional force within a required time period, or appropriate cycle of operation, should never be expected to come from above or issued by senior police officers seated in the comforts of their air-conditioned offices while sipping through countless cups of free tea.

However, it should be the sole reponsibility of well trained and experienced senior most officer or officers in charge of their squads, units or teams on the ground during emergency situations, or in any type of police action in hot-spot areas, or in cases where special mop-up operations have been declared on a case by case basis.

With the lastest advancements in both technology and special police training procedures, a contigent officers on the ground should have vastly improved their methods of operations when confronted with any type of lethal situations, be it in the urban areas, rural regions or remote corners of the country.

Good news, Bad news.

The bad news is that, while the clashes in Tana River Delta have yet to be halted and contentious issues resolved, including a sharp rise in other criminal activities around country, junior polce officers, yaani, low ranking askari in Nairobi County and other counties, have decided to fully embrace a go-slow mode ("tuko-slow-mo") of operation until their demands for a fair payrise are met.

Or else they do not see or find any justification whatsoever as to why they must continue putting their lives on the line as Utumishi Kwa Wote dictates while their services go unappreciated and unrewarded at the end of every month.

Further, they are questioning the validity, pros and cons of forfeighting the comforts of their homes and a good night's sleep in order to protect the rest of public, or be bused down to Tana River while earning simu simu at the mere rate of Sh18,155 instead of extra kitu kidogo at Sh34,000, and rightly so.

On the other hand, the very good news is that another former senior government official, formerly DPO (@Ulinzi House), Julius Ndegwa, will soon bite the dust once legal measures are instituted by the DPP in connection with his alleged involvement in a personal land grabbing operation in the Jamuhuri area of Nairobi.

If it is true as reported by the local media, and at the same time the scales of justice turn against him after having been prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, when and if the DPP gets the upper hand, then Ndegwa's thirty years of having hid behind the police badge (kirauni, gun and the special protection and exclusive privileges once accorded to him as the DPO will come tumbling down in a pile of dust.

We have always heard many among us - the public - complain as well as ask, where are the police officers when you need them? Where is the police force when it really is needed?

The tables have been turned and now there are several senior and junior police officers who have began to ask, where is the Civil Society when its needed to be fair and objective?

Where are members of the Civil Society when police officers are gunned down in the streets of Mombasa or mowed down in the Tana River Delta?

Where are the so-called investigative journalists and their media houses so that they can rush to the rural homes and urban places of work of murdered police officers, in order to interview their families, friends, neighbours and colleagues of the fallen officers?

Why have they not even bothered to place the names and photographs of the murdered police officers in their papers and online sections?


Hence, that is one of the many reasons why Sir Charles Owino Wahongo, EBS., has said it as it is and wonders why the death of a Kenyan police officer is not worth front-page news or never merits a decent coverage for a second during, breaking news sessions, headline news or normal broadcasts by the major media houses in Kenya?

It is very sad when one of us is killed nobody cares; look at the so-called civil society, they only wait for police to kill one criminal and they shout extra-judicial killing ("exjuki") all over the place. We are also human beings with human rights ~ DCP Charles Owino Wahongo.

Some inauspicious circumstances seem to be fueling the conflict that has been unfolding in and around the Tana River Delta for a while.

So far, there are those among us who are now beginning to wonder and even question the real motives and identities of the individuals or group of people responsible for the horrfyingly wicked attacks targeting some residents in the region.

In actual fact, who is really bound to gain politically and otherwise in the aftermath of the ongoing atrocious cruelties within the Tana River Delta?

And who is really fooling who, given the nature of politics and seasonal ethnic strife within the area and in light of the looming general elections?

All things taken into account, should members of parliament, concerned government officials, the police force, media houses, and the public, be asking whether Mohamed Yusuf Haji, MP for Ijari was way out of line when he issued pungent statements in parliament accusing his counterpart Dadho Godana, MP for Galole, for being the pernicious mastermind behind heinious loss of many lives and wanton destruction of property in the Tana Delta?

By the way, does the governor's race for Tana River County have anything to do with the ongoing Tana River clashes?

The word in the Delta has it that a known member of parliament who is seeking to content for the governor's seat in Tana River County, is very much afraid of being dealt a thorough beating at the polls in 2013, given his underdog status and the current popularity enjoyed by one of his opponent from a neighbouring constituency.

In all fairness, Dadho Godana, MP for Galole, should have be given the chance to present his side of the equation regarding the genesis, responsible agents and the conduits in which the inauspicious circumtances are being convyed.

Otherwise, the MP and the people of Galole will end up being given the short end of the stick, and the blatant accusations will not contribute to any short-term as well as long-term workable solutions in the Tana River Delta.

By all accounts, it is becoming very obvious that the menacing al-kebaab-sungusungu in the Tana River Delta are a continuity of the Shifta menace dating back to the 1950s and 60s. Sadly, the more things have changed, the more some people or rather "Kenyans with foreign minds" have remained firmly entrenched in a distant past. While those who have been in charge of the Coast, Eastern and North Eastern regions have no one to blame but their own total failures over the last three decades at a time when Kenyan national IDs and passports were up for sale to any refugee with a bundle of dollars or sterling pounds. The country and its citizens are now reaping evil that was sown through Corruption (Kenya Ltd) by many civil servants and senior governments, some of whom are six feet under, and others who who are still well and alive, enjoying fruits of their corrupted and wicked labour.

Tana River Clashes have not only exposed complete lack of leadership and vigilance on part of the president, his prime minister and the national security agencies, but the continuing violent confrontations have also exposed the hideous hand and malign influence of the MRC working in concert with rudiments of al-kebabar from across.

The consortium of perpetrators in the Tana River Delta should be regarded as unwelcomed, very dangerous, and must be dealt with and overcome by all means necessary.

Or else they will only be embolden after having gotten away with the chaotic disturbances that they sirred up in Mombasa, and lately unscrupulously exploited in the Tana River Delta.

Insecure and misplaced mindset about the FOOLISH GRADUATE of the ILF by the African Teacher? NEVER!

Let us cite an example. In 2010, every IDIOTIC and FOOLISH LEARNED LIAR/PRIEST PLUS BLOGGERS like CHRIS, was telling Kenyans how they had come up with a glorious katiba.

On our side, we said it was a clear case of DELUSIONS, ILLUSIONS & CHILDISH FANTASIES.

2 years later, who was right?

The FOOLISH GRADUATES of the ILF or the WISE African Teacher? Let us "listen" to one of them now:

"Deputy Speaker Maalim rules out March poll."

Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim has said it is impossible to hold the next elections in March 4 next year.

"I don’t see any way that we can have (the General) election in March next year. I’d have loved to have these elections in December myself.

"It’s not possible in December, it’s not possible in March next year, and I do not believe it will be possible to have elections anywhere before August next year,” said Mr Maalim.

He said the US with 311 million people, had 435 representatives in the House of Representatives and 100 senators in the Congress; yet Kenya with just 38 million people will have 349 MPs to sit in the National Assembly and 67 people to sit in the Senate.

Mr Maalim said, in a worst-case scenario, where the number of women has to be topped up to fulfill the constitutional threshold, the country will have a BLOATED Parliament, which will be VERY DIFFICULT to MAINTAIN.

The Deputy Speaker said there “has to be a lot of discussion put into the issue”, because the mathematics of representation did not allow the country to have a BLOATED PARLIAMENT [of ABUSE].

Why? The rest of the country did nothing but decided to sit back and watch the deathly events unfold.

Some even cheered for obvious reasons, especially certain cold hearted elements in our midst, in the same manner they have done and continue to do so while the death toll rises and murderous mayhen, dsiplacement of persons, and wanton destruction continues to take place.

Who are we? What sort of nation have we become? And why have we as people refused to learn from our past political-cum-ethic violence that has a way of raring several of its urgliest monsterous heads during every general election year?

Let us hope that there will come time when political leaders and the government can be sued and found liable for gross negligence in discharging their responsibilities in the manner in which they failed to do during the Post-Election Violence as well as the Tana Delta Massacre.
