Kenyans should back Mutula Kilonzo stand

Justice Minister Mutula Kilonzo's stand that ICC suspects awaiting ruling by the Pre-Trial Chamber should not vie for presidency if the charges against them are confirmed, sparked protest from supporters of Uhuru and Ruto the Presidential candidates waiting for ICC trial. His Umbrella Party colleagues have also distanced themselves from his stand because their leader Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka purports to support the two suspects.

All this critics are based on narrow minded, pretenders, self-centered and tribalist Kenyans who do not want the rule of law to prevail in this country. Mutula has sacrificed his political position in Ukambani by defying his tribal party to ensure that he follows the law. Speaking to Citizen TV today he said his stand on the ICC ruling has earned him invitation from 20 political parties.

We want to see leaders like Mutula Kilonzo who will stand out against tribal leaders, even if it means falling out with their kinsmen while fighting for change in Kenya. Let’s support the Justice Minister to stop impunity in Kenya.

The push was great. They had to resign. Today start the journey of great things happening as Uhuru and Muthaura resign from the public position. The next move as earlier predicated will be them calling off their presidential aspiration.

Now Mr. AG what say you ?. VP Kalonzo Musyoka What say you ?

Let the trial starts when all the suspects are RAIA.

What I still wonder there are those whose pictures appear on the Tv each day on what happened during post election violence, beatings and killing or uttering hate speeches, how comes the government of Kenya cannot go for them and arrest them. They are in the community and their faces are known and can be seen each day. See the repeats of the violence on NTV today.

Please government, be serious and arrest these people before you ask ICC to hand over the four main suspects. How would you try the four big fish while the ones well known and can be seen on the tv are not yet arrested?

Lastly where is Mr. Ndege who lost his entire family in the Naivasha revenge or hiding?

Kenya where Criminals are the Presidents to be!!!!!!!

Yes it is shocking that the ICC confirmed suspects, Ruto and Uhuru K who are seriously campaigning to be the next presidents of this great Nation Kenya. What a big shame, impunity and arrogance. Reading what they are accused of and assuming that the accusations are confirmed and they are guilty, but they have been already sworn in as president. What are we saying; criminals leading the nation? to where?

Many people are arguing that they are innocent till proven guilty. That is true. But they are not innocent to the extent of seeking for the top position of this land. What will happen when they are proven guilty once they are in office. We will have another Al Bashir scenario.

If these two people believe in justice and love for this country, let them step aside as their cases continue.

Why waste tax payers’ money?

After ICC ruling that reduced Ocampo suspects from six to four, the President at a press conference ordered the Attorney General Prof Githu Muigai to form a tribunal to look into the judgment and give the way forward. Why would the Government want to look into an international ruling and give the way forward. On that issue, Minister for Lands James Orengo has commented today that it is like the Government is on trial. ODM party which is a partner in the Government says the President did not consult the PM; So why would one side of the Government want to challenge the ruling of an international court and does not consult his partner in the coalition on the way forward?

The President has also suspended defiant Deputy Chief Justice Nancy Baraza to show he is taking action on the “Big Fish”, but many Kenyans will not be satisfied because Francis Muthaura and Uhuru Kenyatta ICC suspects senior Government officials are still in office and are not willing to let go? Are they untouchable? Why is it so? Then another seven member tribunal is formed to look into Nancy Baraza’s case, why can’t she go through the normal legal process other Kenyan offenders are subjected to. So there are two legal processes in Kenya for the “Big Fish” tribunals will look into their offenses but the “small fish” face the court process and then rot in jail thereafter.

Why waste OUR money forming tribunals to discuss what is obvious and in the long run nothing changes?

After ICC ruling it is 6 minus 2

Finally the ruling Kenyans have been waiting for came to pass today, the Ocampo six have been reduced to Ocampo four. The ICC has clearly separated the humble from the proud. Since the hearings started the four who will go for trial, Uhuru, Ruto, Sang have been very vocal and abusive, Muthaura has been vocal but not as the three. The two who have been acquitted for now have handled the case in a more humble way. For now they are off the hook unless the Prosecutor Ocampo appeals their acquittal.

No matter what the President says about our changed judicial system after enacting the new constitution, many Kenyans believe that justice especially for the “Big-fish” can only be realized at the ICC, a recent case of Deputy Chief Justice Nancy Baraza threatening a security officer (Kerubo) with a gun is a very good example she is still free. Kenyans want peace and justice especially when we are about to go for elections again and so this should serve as a lesson to leaders who think they own Kenya and can do anything they want because the law in Kenya is on their side.

N/B: Their political allies will “stand in solidarity” with them and even shed crocodile tears but some like “watermelon” must be smiling inside and thanking their stars.

What are school principals in Eastern Province of Kenya up to?

January is normally a busy month with school activities, children joining kindergarten, some joining primary schools, the older ones joining Secondary schools and colleges. Other students are transferred from one school to the other depending on various reasons mostly to take a child to a boarding school, to a school that performs better, a cheaper school and when parents are relocating to another place.

Considering the above factors I have mentioned that may cause a parent or a guardian to transfer a child, it is strange to see a parent moving a child from a good Government Secondary school, not that he/she is not able to pay the fees or because of the distance. It is because the school has decided that certain children are not performing well so they should repeat classes and some simply tell the parent or guardian your child is a nuisance to our school we have warned him/her a number of times but he/she is not changing so it is better you look for a school for your child. If the child and parent have been warned before and it is true, that is understandable, but when it is a fabricated story and especially the children targeted are children from other tribes or regions of Kenya, then it is another issue.

This is what is happening to many students in some schools in Eastern Kenya to be precise let me say in Ukambani. This region is not far from Nairobi, so many parents from Nairobi tend to send their children to Government schools in Machakos, Tala, Kagundo, Athi River etc.. in Eastern Province of Kenya because they want their children to study in an upcountry environment that is not far from Nairobi where it is convenient for them to visit and the school fees are also reasonable for parents compared to Nairobi Government Schools.

Most parents from other regions of Kenya who took their children to schools in Eastern Kenya have complained of harassment and discrimination by the school administration. I have heard of around 10 cases from different schools, at first I thought it was discrimination against children from Western and Nyanza (Luo, Luhya and Kisii) but now I know of cases of children from Central (Kikuyu) and mostly children from Nairobi. The school heads claim they are not performing well; there is a parent who realized her child’s marks were doctored to prove their claim and corrected when she complained, they later claimed the child has discipline cases so the child should leave their school. They make the parents write that they have asked for transfer and sign so that it is not the school to blame and because parents need a clearance from the school they oblige.

When launching this year’s new policy for form one selection, Minister for Education Prof. Sam Ongeri said the decision was informed by the provisions of the new Constitution, which place emphasis on equity, fairness, unity and national cohesion. Therefore the Ministry of Education should investigate this issue because schools should not practicing tribalism and discrimination. Kenya is for all and no one chose to be born where they were born, we are in the year of election and we do not want anything that triggers what happened in 2007/2008 that brought about cases against 6 Kenyans at the ICC. This is politics in school against innocent children, if it is politicians interfering in public schools they should stop and school heads should be wise.

DCJ Ms Baraza; You are wrong on this.

I was shock to read in the Kenyan newspapers an encounter between a security officer a shopping mall and a deputy Chief Justice. The Story narrates how the senior government officer resisted to undergo security check before entering the mall. It further said that the DCJ went ahead to threaten the security officer (Deborah Kerubo)with a gun. That was terrible, impunity,misuse of position and arrogance in my view.Ms Baraza you were wrong on this and you need to be punished just like any Kenyan. If I were you, this is the time to step aside as investigation are on. You accept that there was a confrontation between you and the security lady. Can you tell Kenyans what caused this?
