Who Is Gonna Be The Next Kenyan President?

The shape Kenyan politics is already whole. For people who have not yet decided on where to cast their vote, then I guess it will not matter that much because the race is almost complete. Or should we say we do not need elections at all? This is because there will not be changes in the current leadership. Kenyans will only cast their lots because it is constitutional to head for elections after a period of time, but nothing big will happen as the current leaders will only be confirmed as the most favorite for Kenyans.

There have been major corruption allegations in the country. The people of Kenya showed how tired they are because monies are lost into the thinnest air as the head of state and government watches on. The president did almost nothing to make things right for the people of Kenya, but still when it comes to presidential elections people seems to forget competence aspects in someone as they go for those who will give a lot of money, those working in tribal lines and those who seems more promising for goodies.

In the recently concluded voters registration exercise, the strong holds of Jubilee ruling alliance came at the top with CORD’s strongholds coming second. This is clear that the determinant third alliance will only show the way for the stronger to party to carry the day.

Between Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga, both have a chance of emerging at the top but the president will use all government machinery to remain in power. Of course we are only waiting for the money that got lost in corruption scandals to hit the streets. There, people who are easily driven with handouts will have a chance to run for money and end up voting for the current president.

With these major determinant aspects, there is no need for presidential elections come 2017… the government of Kenya is not gonna change anyway!

How The Late First Lady Lucy Kibaki Rose Into Power

Kenya… When we talk about the life of the late Mama Lucy Kibaki, we only know more about her legacy after President Mwai Kibaki rose into power. We have so little information about her during her husband’s struggle in opposition, her support and general information about how she was like before then.

The main reason why Kenyan will miss her is because she was the only known first lady to leave a legacy for the benefit of Kenyans. She is known to have stood firm on family values and in most of her speeches, she never minced her words about family life.

According to those who knew her Mama Lucy Kibaki much better, her family came first in everything. She is was the first one to hint about Kibaki’s second term in office and she spearheaded his second term campaigns, drawing women behind her. Her effort paid off when her husband was announced the winner of the controversial elections in 2007 that saw Kenya go on knees in dark hour.

The most memorable event happened during the storm in Nation Media center because of ‘defamatory’ headline on one of the their daily news papers. She assaulted some people during that hour of terror and later walked away promising for some more if the do not change their style when address the first family.

Even members of the Kibaki team were not spared. She warned that some people were giving bad advice to the president and that she would deal with them accordingly. This happened some days later when she went physical with one of the Kibaki’s close ally. It was later confirmed that he got fired because of reasons known to a few individuals…

Well, because of Lucy Kibaki’s iron-hand in sensitive matters, it caused uneasiness in members of the public because she was much more like the president… someone they did not voter for. The reason why the media started going blind in her functions. Later, she got lost in the public image!

The System Designed To Hate The CORD Leader

CAPE TOWN/SOUTH AFRICA, 10JUN2009 -Raila Amolo...

CAPE TOWN/SOUTH AFRICA, 10JUN2009 -Raila Amolo Odinga, Former Prime Minister of Kenya, Kenya Business Alliance Against Chronic Hunger – World Economic Forum on Africa 2009 in Cape Town, South Africa, June 10, 2009 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The leader of the opposition and the torch-bearer of the Coalition of Reform and Democracy (CORD), Raila Odinga,  is a legend who has fought been in major battles and has always emerge as a winning loser. This means that all his effort to make Kenya a better place has always turned negative because of forces beyond his power.

Through his unending efforts in pushing for the wheel of change, he has garnered a lot support from Kenyans but still his chances of rising above and over everyone else are so minimal. Why? This is so because of the systems that controls much of Kenya’s governance.

It is known that Raila Odinga is a man who would push for changes beyond some individuals who fear what he might do while in power. These people are super rich Kenyans who have dented the dignity of the sovereign Kenya. They have taken things that are meant for all Kenyans and called them by their own name. These people survive because the presidency is a cover for their corrupted ways of life. These are people who make choices for the sake of all Kenyans. What people in Kenya elect into power, are just the handpicked individual who is supported by the underworld systems that controls Kenya.

In Kenya, anyone who supports underworld politics is the one who rises into power through the easiest and quickest ways. But those who are for accountability and reality of change like Raila Odinga,it takes like forever for them to make it.

Kenya was founded by the will of many, but this changed a few years after Kenya was made a full republic. The then president made it almost impossible for other people to gain the power. The president created a firewall between him and other people. He made sure that tribalism, nepotism and other ‘isms’ are in control of major decision-making channels. And this has been repeating itself for over 50 years now.

What I hate the most is that Kenyans have no say about all these evils. Majority are unhappy about leadership… however, they remain with hopes that someday, Kenya will be how they wish it could be. Yes! Maybe this will happen when a person like Raila Odinga becomes the president of Kenya.

Did prayers help SIX Kenyans who were facing crimes against humanity at The Hague?

I believe many of you would say, yes! And equally many of you would say, nope! Now it is time to have a say how prayers did a wonderful things that resulted into the acquittal of all six Kenyans from the chains of an International Criminal Court (ICC).

This is how it went down,

Kenyans knows that their deputy president is a man who loves God so much that his tears are almost in constant motion whenever he feels an angel touching his head. He was the first person to visit the ICC at The Hague, Holland and came back as a hero. If Kenyans can remember that day very well, then they do still remember his words upon touching down from the plane. Mr Ruto said, “God who stays in heaven will never let the innocent person suffer… I believe he will show us the light, and we will follow it until the end.”

That was beautiful and powerful statement that Kenyans never understood then, but as time went by things became much clear.

The first four accused fellows were exonerated from blame since the prosecution failed to produce evidence to confirm that any of them were part of the financial team that funded the killings witnessed in 2007/2008.

That was great because this paved way for the last two to have a say that later confirmed that, them too, did not have a case to answer.

How prayers helped the six….

Although there is no verse in the Bible that says, “God helps those who help themselves.” Majority of us believe that God is there to add a little help to those who are already struggling to be free. Indeed, it happened in Kenya during those days. How?

According to the ICC prosecutor, ICC witnesses faced the worst challenges and never should any witness face such grave challenges in future.

She said that, many witnesses were forced, either by bribe or by death, to change their earlier statements. It also appeared that those who were the key witnesses were either denied a chance to speak out or were killed before the beginning of the trials.

Well, if you think prayers did not work then think again… The six are free, two of them are our leaders (leaders are chosen by God)… what do you think about this?

I think we are better off under the ICC

Just last week the two remaining cases of crimes against humanity were officially dismissed citing insufficient evidence.The cases were referred to the ICC after the majority of the M.Ps unanimously agreed the cases were better off in the Hague rather than before a local tribunal.So after the decision to kick out the two cases,the victims lawyer though unsatisfied with this move mentioned that they would not appeal.

For the two individuals,this brings about happiness but I guess for the victims,a spell of doom engulfs their hope for justice.The scars of those injured may have healed but what of those with scars of emotional stress having lost their loved ones or more so lost their normal life.The government has  promised to look into the plight of the PEV victims and do the necessary but one wonders whether this promise holds water, bearing in mind it’s 8 years+ since the violence took place.No top leaders have been charged yet in connection to this violence and at the same time its obvious the victims know some of their attackers very well because it so happened that a neighbor could turn against another neighbor all due to being to a different tribe and still nothing has been done to the well-known culprits.

But then the prosecutor opted to ask the government to surrender three individuals who were accused of manipulating crucial witnesses, something which really interfered with the two cases by making them very week. A few days ago, a leader allied to the ruling coalition made some remarks that the ICC had no business make any demands as far as the individuals are concerned because it had proved to many that it’s not up to the task of delivering.

Kenya needs to remain a member of the Rome statute to maintain sanity to those leaders who think that bleaching the peace of a country is the only way to pass a strong political message. One thing is for sure as long as ICC is watching then crime offenders will definitely keep off.
