SHOCK as KALENJIN elders turn around and tell UHURU/ RUTO the bare truth about them

Wednesday July 23, 2014 - President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, have been shocked by the turn of events in Kalenjinland after elders in Rift Valley turned around and told them the naked truth about their Presidency.

In a statement read by one of them in Nakuru, the elders told Uhuru/ Ruto that they have failed the country as far as security is concerned.

The Council Chairman, Gilbert Kabage, accused Uhuru/ Ruto of losing touch with the reality on the ground in terms of security and warned them to be in charge of the country’s security before things get out of hand.

At the same time, the elders also took a swipe at former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s CORD warning him and other opposition leaders to stop making Uhuru/ Ruto’s work difficult by weighing their words carefully before uttering them in public.

“The Constitution has given everyone the right to speak but leaders, especially those in CORD, should be careful not to divide Kenyans by making statements that cause fear,” said Kabage.

The Kalenjin elders resolved to reduce the ethnic tension in the country by involving elders from other communities like Luo and Luhya in peace building and cohesion efforts.

GOOD NEWS: Goldenberg architect, KETAN SOMAIA sentenced to 8 years by a UK Court.

Wednesday July 23, 2014 - Goldenberg architect, Ketan Somaia, has been sentenced to eight years in jail by a British court for nine counts of obtaining money by deception.

Somaia, who is famous in Kenya for defrauding the Kenyan Government Sh 155 billion during the infamous Goldenberg scandal, was convicted of extracting a total of Sh2.3 billion from businessman Murli Mirchandani and Dilip Shah between June 1999 and May 2000 after promising high returns.

According to British tabloid the Daily Mail, the court heard how Ketan, who lived in Bayswater West London, but owned a palatial house in the exclusive North London suburb of Hadley Wood and an office in Mayfair, wooed Mirchandani with all expenses paid trips to Dubai, South Africa and other top holiday destinations and vintage Dom Perignon champagne while fleecing him of the money with a promise of high returns on investments.

Case presiding judge, Richard Hone, while delivering the sentence termed Somaia as “fundamentally dishonest” in his dealings with Murli Mirchandani who instituted private prosecution against Somaia in 2011.

“But for your admitted ill health, I would have had no hesitation in passing a sentence of ten years imprisonment. However, I think some allowance should be made though in my judgment you are your own worst enemy in that respect,” the Judge ruled.

This is good news to Kenyans since Somaia fleeced the Kenyan Government billions during the Goldenberg Scandal in early 1990s.

MPs embarrass UHURU/ RUTO as they tell them point blank – We will not give you this

Wednesday July 23, 2014 - Members of the Parliament have opposed a proposal to give the President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, powers to deploy the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) locally in case of anything without approval of Parliament.

The Defence Committee chaired by Tetu MP and TNA legislatior, Ndung’u Githenji, declined to give the President express powers to deploy the military, saying a future President, who may be rogue, might misuse the powers to accelerate his own personal agenda.

“What will happen for instance if the Governor of Turkana and the National Government have a conflict over oil and the President decides to declare a State of Emergency and deploy military there? We will not accept,” said one of the Jubilee MPs who attended a meeting with Defence Cabinet Secretary, Raychell Omamo.

The MPs embarrassed Uhuru/ Ruto even further after they rejected their nefarious plot to give the National Intelligence Service (NIS) autonomous powers to spy on individual’s conversations via phones or emails.

The MPs said the move had some sinister motive behind it and will infringe on the Bill of Rights.

Uhuru/ Ruto’s Government wanted NIS to have unrestricted access to your cellphone messages, calls and emails without a court warrant.

RAILA ODINGA’s CORD says Police Recruitment should be nullified over CORRUPTION

Wednesday July 23, 2014 – The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) has called for the nullification of the recent Police Recruitment exercise that was marred with corruption and tribalism.

In a statement to the press on Tuesday, the opposition coalition directed the National Police Service to nullify the process and conduct it afresh.

“We condemn in the sternest terms possible the raw corruption exhibited during the recent police recruitment exercise and demand the nullification of the entire process and prosecution of the perpetrators,”  ODM Secretary General, Prof Anyang’ Nyong’o said.

“We demand a repeat of the exercise that will be fair, transparent, equitable and reflective of the diversity of our nation,” Nyong’o added

CORD coalition joined Deputy President, William Ruto, who on Sunday called for a repeat of the exercise.

The Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA) has also called for the recruitment of 10,000 police constables to be nullified because of massive corruption, nepotism and said that the exercise was neither free nor fair.

Arsenal identifies replacement for Manchester United bound Thomas Vermaelen.

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - Arsenal have set sights on Manchester City defender, Matija Nastasic, should Thomas Vermaelen leave the club this summer.

Vermaelen, who has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium, has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United.

Arsenal could be forced to cash on the Belgium international, who has one year left in his current deal at Arsenal, as was the case with Robin van Persie.

Manchester City are open to let the 21-year old center-back leave with Eliaquim Mangala expected to arrive from Porto.

Vermaelen has hitherto admitted his future at the north London club is uncertain, after falling down the pecking order, making just 12 League appearances for the Gunners last season.

United boss, Louis van Gaal, is in the market for a centre-back and Vermaelen fits the bill as he would also provide cover at left-back for Luke Shaw 19, with veteran France defender, Patrice Evra, joining Italian giants, Juventus.

Meanwhile, Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, has confirmed he will not guarantee the future of the Belgium talisman.

When asked if Vermaelen will stay at Arsenal, the French tactician said:  ‘I cannot guarantee he’ll stay, but should he go I will bring another centre-back in for sure.’

SONKO risks a beating as court orders him to personally serve MUTHAMA/ ORENGO et al

Wednesday July 23, 2014 - Nairobi Senator, Mike Mbuvi Sonko, has found himself in a tight spot after the High Court in Nairobi ordered him to personally serve suit papers to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s CORD bigwigs Senators James Orengo, Johnston Muthama, Otieno Kajwang, Elizabeth Ongoro and former Makadara MP, Reuben Ndolo.

This is after Sonko moved to court seeking to have these CORD politicians arrested and committed to civil jail for uttering inflammatory remarks, which could have ignited violence during Saba Saba, contrary to the court orders which retrained them from inciting the public.

“It is in the interest of justice that I am seeking these orders and on the basis that these politicians willfully defied court orders,” stated Sonko in court.

However, High Court Judge, Justice Isaac Lenaola’s orders directing Sonko to personally serve CORD leaders with suit papers before he can rule on the case further makes things hard for Sonko as he now risks being given a dog’s beating by Ndolo, who is a boxer, and Muthama, considering that they had vowed to deal ruthlessly with him.

Will Sonko get close enough to serve CORD leaders with suit papers as directed by the court? It remains to be seen how things will turn out for the flamboyant Nairobi Senator.

I don’t want a job from UHURU/ RUTO – MUDAVADI says as he unites with RAILA ODINGA

Wednesday July 23, 2014 - United Democratic Forum (UDF) Party Leader, Musalia Mudavadi, has denied that he is seeking a State appointment from the Jubilee Government.

In a statement dispatched to the Press by his Private Secretary, Kibisu Kabatesi, Mudavadi said his call for inclusive public appointments should not be misconstrued to mean he wants a job.

“I made this call because the country is experiencing ethnic tensions and tottering towards ethnic conflict partly due to disparity in public appointments that favour certain communities at the expense of others,” Mudavadi said.

He added, “This observation should not be trivialized to mean the opposition is seeking to be included in Government and therefore should wait to win elections in 2017. That is not the issue. Far from it, public appointments are not a favour to Kenyans but their right,”

The former Deputy Prime Minister said he is looking for ways to join Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) to address issues of tribalism, nepotism and inclusivity in Government.

He also said the UDF Party supports the referendum call by former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga.
