    People are ready for it no police effort will thwart our true call for peaceful protest.

    They need PEACE we need JUSTICE

  2. Ken says:

    allow me to borrow from Rev.Dr. M.L. King jnr.

    As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the Kenyan is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We cannot be satisfied as long as the Kenyan basic mobility is from a smaller slum to a larger one. We cannot be satisfied as long as a Kenyan’s vote can not be correctly tallied. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.Let freedom ring,if Kenya is to be a great nation ,this must become true…..

    This is our hope and this is our prayer.And when we pray, we of christianfaith must always remember the prayer of our lord before he was crucified.
    “Father, if this cup cannot be taken away unless I drink it, let your will be done.”

    The older generation has fought for freedom and as they age it is us the young Kenyans to provide the logistical,moral and physical presence to surport the leadership of our party.If we are seen to be afraid or unwilling to sacrifice then this nation weill never be free.and thats like another 50 years of Dictatorship.

    Peace! Peace! Peace! Kenyas need peace
    Justice! Justice! Justice! Kenyans need justice

    Hope a solution to what is happening politically will be sorted out soon

    Lets be peaceful & let there be justice

  4. Pablo says:

    Well guyz the logic is very simple and there is a minor section of Kenya which does not want to realize this. There can no be peace without justice. for instance Justice brings equality and unity hence no divided feelings then everybody will be at peace wit each other. Why are these people taking Kenyans for a ride the reknowned international election observers were planted in every conner of the nation. the question these guyz poses with is that rigging was seen in all parties why not observers report I think Kalanzo is a big traitor and no Kenyan is supposed to forgive him until he comes to terms with truth and justice. What we want is Justice and nothing else. We dont want a thieving govt Kibaki and the co have made all Kenyans confirm their fears about people from central and eastern Kenyan they are thieves, you can not entrust them with leadership, they are tribalists of the highest order, Let us check and scrutinize these people. What I said earlier in some forum on this very blog, if worse comes to worse we should delineate the two provinces from others then we see if they can survive on their own. Let us find Kivuitu and property burn him, Martha Karua Wamugunda Burn, and Michuki of course then they will know the seriousness of the people of Kenya

    Hi bloggers

    It is our sacred right to assemble peacefully and demand our rights mass actions happen all over the world and in Kenya if we didn’t advocate for mass action Moi would not have repealed section 2A to allow multy party politics what about 1997 mass actions that resulted in the IPPG deal. Mass action i repeat is our right and we will defend that right.

  6. dama says:

    Mass action yes! democracy democracy if we dont do it now when will we ever do it. Why should we give up the fight every good thing doesnot come easly lets go out there and lets do it peace fully lets do it for our children and our children children awake oh kenyans see what you are plunching into we are being taken back to the rule of dictorship we are leaving in our country as prisoners look at the security they have enforced today just because parliament is beeing opened, look at the Michukis of this world and the martha karuas of this world when they speak they breath fire for no apparent reason and why? so just that they may have control at whatever cost. Kenyans open your eyes and get out there and fight for your rights.

    KIBAKI LOST PRESIDENCY: US Exit Polls

    An exit poll carried out on behalf of a U.S. government-backed foundation indicates that Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki was defeated in last month’s disputed election rather than being re-elected as he claims, according to officials with knowledge of the document.

    What is this guy waiting then…………ama anatumia Nguvu?

  8. Otsiatso says:

    We have to keep the pressure. If you are in the diaspora make sure you write your local and national papers, attend the rallies, contact the represntative where you live and make noise!! Use whatever peaceful means necessary to keep the pressure.
    This is about Kibaki and his cabal vs. Kenya. It is not about Kikuyus and Kambas vs. Kenya.

    Thoe in Kenya, if you have access to digital cameras – take photos and upload and spread it to the rest of world – we wil help sambaza the rally images.

    Kibaki can NOT govern and he knows it!!

    REDEMPTION SONG
    Old pirate Sam Kivuitu,
    Sold i to the Merchant Mwai,
    Minutes after they they stole i vote,
    At K.I.C.C
    But my heart was made strong,
    By the hands of the Almighty,
    to forward in this ODM generation truimphantly,

    So you help me sing, this song of freedom,
    thats all i ever have ………Redemption song.

    CURRENTLY ALL THE MUSICIANS IN KENYA ARE URGING KENYANS TO STAY PEACEFULLY. NONE IS BRAVE TO SING ABOUT JUSTICE. IT REMINDS ME OF AN OLD SAYING. ” THERE ARE TWO CLASSES OF PEOPLE WHO KNOW THE MOST AND SING ABOUT THE POOR. – THE POLITICIANS AND THE MUSICIANS”. DO WE HAVE REVOLUTIONARY SINGERS OUT THERE.

  10. Maru Kapkatet says:

    Mass action in Kenya. What about on the international scene? ODM appears to be quiet on the international scene. Why?

    Does ODM realize what the implications are for all Kenyans who supported ODM in the last general elections if Kibaki gets a free reign as before?

    I would like ODM to publish a letter (signed by ODM Secretary General or ODM Foreign Affairs Minister) on this website telling the world that Kibaki did not only steal the election but went on to massacre hundreds of Kenyans with the intention of silencing (and indeed they did so) them so as not to protest the denial of their democratic rights.

    By stealing the election and using police (where the majority of genuine policemen were from Kibaki’sethnic group and were supported by the deadly Mungiki in police uniform) brutality, different ethnic groups were turned gainst one another.

    In the letter, ODM should clearly detail discrimination against non-GEMA ethnic groups in Kenya in government employment, government business contracts, and regional development before the elections and the real fear that such discrimination will now intensify after many Kenyans rejected Kibaki.

    In the letter, ODM should ask the world not to have any dealings with Kibaki and his officials and to impose travel sanctions on them until and unless an acceptable coalition government is put in place where ODM will take at laest the vice presidency, minister finance, and minister of internal security and provincial administration.

    Kenyans everywhere in the world will then print the letter and mail it or hand-deliver to their members of parliament, the ministers of foreign affairs, the prime ministers or presidents of the countries where Kenyans currently reside and to the international,regional, and continental bodies.

    It is my wish that ODM should also include in the letter detailed documentation of human rights abuses and crimes against humanity perpetrated by Kibaki and his henchmen.

  11. Maru Kapkatet says:

    ODM should immediately adopt MPsof the so-called Small Parties from Rift Valley, Nyanza, Western, Coast,and North Eastern provinces.

    I ask the MPs of these small parties to remember some of their own people who have died at the hands of Kibaki’s security forces (police and Mungiki in police uniform) and not to allow themselves to be bribed to work with Kibaki.

    OLE KAPARO TO BE THE FIRST CASUALTY OF THE ILLIGIMATE REGIME, I WONDER SUCH PEOPLE LIKE KAPARO DO NOT READ SIGN OF THE TIME ..

    ODM HOYEEEEEE

    KIBAKI AND HIS BRIGADE ………….. MEET US IN THE AUGUST HOUSE TODAY AND TOMMOROW IN THE STREETS

  13. tnk says:

    yup just in, Marende is the speaker. Our ODM MPs and other democratic MPs have done us proud

  14. Otsiatso says:

    This is the start people, now that we have the parliament – on
    to the executive branch!!
    I am proud of all those OFM MPs who stuck with the party even though I am sure a lot of $$ must have been dangled before them

  15. Otieno says:

    Kenneth Marende elected Speaker!!!!!

    Na bado…

  16. zizi says:

    Someone realised that Marende was on the win so she or he decided to vote with the winning team. I believe the person was either from Eastern or Western. Also may be this tym round the guy running for deputy speaker on PNu side decided to trade his vote for ODm support. Let us see how the voting for deputy goes.

    Give PNU another thrushing win.

  17. zizi says:

    Somehow, the news that Marende has won will start bringing some relief to ODM supporters countrywide that at least we can sulvage things. There is going to be some peace, I guess.

  18. hekima naamini says:

    our ultimate goal is to bring the entire change, meaningful change to the beloved mother contry KENYA. WE SHALL NOT REST.UNTIL EW ATE THERE. KESHO TUKO BARABARANI. WAISLAMU TUJITOKEZENI OVER IPK. ODM has done proud to the kenya muslims . one female from thr north eastern and one imam from the masjid ( mosque) imam mohd dor will be the fast muslim from the pulpit. ODM E ARE VERY PROUD. MOMBASA AND THE ENTIRE COAST PROVINCE WILL BE OUT TOMMOROW .

    SEE YOU THERE GSU AP AND THE ARMY.

    WE THEN PEOPLE OF KENYA WHO ARE YOUR BROTHER, SISTER, MOTHER, FATHER AND FREIND OR NEIGHBOUR WILL BE IN THE STREET TO DEMAND WHAT BELONG TO US.
    DO NOT BE USED BLINDLY,
    A FEW INDIVIDUAL WHAT TO HOLD THE ENTIRE NATION HOSTAGE.

  19. Maru Kapkatet says:

    MANY CONGRATULATIONS HOUSE SPEAKER MARENDE

  20. Tiema says:

    We must press on with rallies,we are the poeple and we do hire and fire.we fired kibaki and he can not rule us by force.Kibaki should also not push us to the edge where we will also arm ourselves and face him.we have the numbers he does not.If Kibaki does not give in to the will of the poeple ,I say lets go to the bush like Museveni did to get rid of Obote.It is better we die now so our grand children will enjoy true democracy.

    I love my country and I love peace but we can not sit and say Kibaki has security forces,if it take us a year or two lets be ready to fight for freedom,sometimes freedom comes by shading blood if negociations have gone nowhere.To allow Kibaki ro govern under open thugery is saying we will be slaves for years to come because Uhuru or Kalonzo the traitor will be rigged in and we can not sit down and allow this. I am willing to go to the bush now,I am willing to train however long it takes as long us we will come back and restore a legitimate just goverment and democracy to our poeple.

    Like Moses I say to Kibaki LET MY POEPLE GO. and if kibaki does not listen lets go to plan B. WE SHOULD NOT RULE OUT FORCE TO GET KIBAKI OUT WE DO HAVE THE NUMBERS .IT MAY TAKE SOME TIME BUT HE WILL BE OUT IF WE ARE READY TO TRAIN,ORGANIZE AND EXECUTE.

    WE CAN NOT FEAR THE FORCES SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE GUNS,WE CAN GET BETTER ARMS IF WE COMMIT TO IT THIS IS A NEW DAY AND WE KNOW BETTER SO KIBAKI MUST GO BY THE BALLOT OR BY THE GUN ITS KIBAKI TO CHOOSE.

    Bravo! Marende. Kick those hooligans out.Tell them that you need a president in the house.You also do not see the kenyas president.So you need to know,and by how.Kaa ngumu kama gumo.

  22. zizi says:

    Farah Maalim goes in too after opponet concedes. congratulations.

    Those talking of nominations- there is a problem again with ODM list after Imanyara and others nominated themselves. KBC reported today.

    We love Imanyara and we need to talk to them well.

    Hail the Republic.

  24. tnk says:

    lets take the pressure up a notch. this PNU business has pushed Kenya very far back.
    ODM is the real future of Kenya

    my favorite quote is

    “The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading that which is true and just for what we want at the moment.”

    -Author Unknown

  25. Baijo M. Lorowu says:

    The battle begins. But we have some faulty laws in the constitution that marende could not escape from applying today. He was cornred in his inagaural rulings in his day on the job. ODM should apply all manner of pressures to make kibaki yield

  26. zizi says:

    CONCERN about nominations.

    I have raised this before. How do we go about registred officials of the party nominating themselves against the earlier list.

    My idea was that we need to appreciate what Imanyara and team did. But that does not mean to nominate them as MPs. It will be setting a bad example I guess. The Party needs to grow under the leadership of people who have the passion like Imanyara.

    The escape route I guess, is to assure them that we all Kenyans are behind them as officials of the party as long as they make the running of party’s affairs in parliament a success. I was thinking that in the ODM is going to get a chunk of money from the Political Parties Fund and that means it will need managers. Imanyara can continue doing that good job.

    In the meantime, nominating self against the wishes of party members will result into a crisis of democracy in Kenya.

    Cheers.

  27. Daniel says:

    President Raila should be so angry that he cannot talk to Ex-president Kibaki. He ought to be a gentleman and watch his temper and while shaking Kibakis hand punch him with the other with a cool gentlemanly face. HA! That is good.
    Now they must freeze the govt. until we have new elections or sue the ECK while at the same time pursuing to change the LAW/Constitution. Those who have died must not die in vain. The opposition ministers need to forfeit some if not all of their pay and help their constiutents until we have a smooth govt. And better yet they need to pass a law that cuts back on their pays. This will show the difference between the CORRUPT and the changers in either SIDE. The people will decide. No more rhetoric people have died for Justice, for Raila and the other leaders. It is not a game like Kalonzo plays it is those 1000 or so lives. It is not politics it is about Kenya. Money does not matter when we have no NCHI. It is about time Kisumu, Nakuru, Eldoret, Kitale .Coast,etc saw some development with better roads, water and other infrustructure. ODM please keep up the FIGHT. FIGHT smart. Direct your anger to issues and not people. Save the country. Congrats
    MR. SPEAKER

  28. Otsiatso says:

    Zizi right on…there is nothing wrong with being a party official to build ODM into a true movement like the ANC.
    Not everyone has to be an MP

    ODM shoudl sit and sort ut the mess… meanwhile, let the legislative begin
    1. Amend the constituion to allow the parliament to address a consititutional reform –
    No Katiba- No legislative work ! No budget!!
    Kwisha maneno

  29. ken says:

    ODM should launch a peoples charter and push for it to be transformed into a coalition of parties that has social democracy as its guiding principle. The ODM youth wing and the ODM womens league should commence the process of electing its officials, and open branches in all the universities and colleges where young ODM members are natured.
    Secondly on the legislative agenda, let us push for towns and cities with population of over 200,000 should have Metropolitan police under the mayor. Areas with populations less than this shall be policed by the administration police. The metropolitan police will be under a a police chief appointed by the mayor and approved by the local council. The national police as it is shall be disbanded, and police academies established in each of these towns cities and offer six month training on human rights and police work.
    What this ensures is that money will be saved on police housing and community policing will be much easier, given that the police will truly be your neighbors. Secondly it will promote democracy and prevent the importation of police into areas with the agenda of instigating violence.
    Finally the local councils should be the focus of ODMs service delivery, someone mentioned nominating Esther Passaris , this is a sound Idea, given all she has accomplished in the private and philanthropic arenas. Same should be applied to Mombasa, Kisumu Nakuru, Eldoret, Kisii , Narok, Thika and all other towns where ODM has sizable votes. Before I sign off all the best in the peaceful protests tomorrow and may God bless our cause. The Idea mooted by the Imans in Mombasa is an excellent one that should be emulated countrywide. National sit ins until new presidential elections.

  30. arap sirorei says:

    First and foremost cogratulation on the nomination of Hon.marende.

    Second Justice is very expensive.There is a price to be paid.Just as freedom is not free.It is upto us to pay the price now or take loan for it.

    Of course all of us know the night mares of taking a loan.this is not the way out.

    the struggle must continue on all fronts ,let us hold our breath for once and liberate our beloved country from angloleasors and goldenbaggers.

    let us speed the reforms in the house as we paralyse all transactions in the country until justice is done.

    victory on all fronts will follow marende’s victory.

    we do not have many nights to do this.

    mass action should continue for as long as he holds onto the office illegally.

    ceasefire should only follow a step down.

    the road to uganda should be rendered inoperational indefinately.

    the ugandan soldiers are cerrently in liason with mungikito cause mayhem.

    take phots of them for future reference.

    let us not backdown.

    we must win what we won

    Hi bloggers

    Seeing Kibaki’s face on T.V showing alot of pain on how his nominees were being trounced made me sleep soundly.That old man stole from us and as i have said it before “REVENGE IS BEST SERVED COLD” this is just the beginning to show how Kibaki strategists lost the plot surely how can they have nominated Imanyara who hails from S.Imenti in Meru and expect other people to vote for him especially now when the political temp. is still high and look at ODM’s strategy they appoint Marende which will force Lughya Mp’s to vote for him and he is a christian and comes from one of the largest communities in Kenya and for Farah Maalim he is a muslim and comes from the smaller communities in Kenya making the line up complete that is why some MP’S who supported Kibaki’s side crossed over and voted with ODM,this is the disadvantage the Kibaki has the many party’s that support him he will be hard pressed to keep all there loyalties and nowadays goodies dont help ask Moody Awori, Paul Sang, Mukhyisia Kituyi, Kombo, Nyachae and the rest so bloggers ALUTA CONTINUA.

  33. lexx says:

    Hi congrats to ODM for giving ex president and he so called affiliate parties his/there first blow i was pleased with Hon Ababu and Hon Orengo.Hon ODM Member lets take the fight to them that is what we need.lets co-operate and the struggle continues.

  34. Walter says:

    Solidarity exhibited by ODM MPs in the nomination of the Speaker and his deputy reflects what we members/supporters of ODM expect from our honourable members.This unity should be nutured to mould the party into a strong institution whose members subscribe to it’s ideology and are not motivated by selfish gains.
    ODM can infact push most of the programmes through parliament i.e non constitutional bills since they require about 112 votes in such an eventuality.Therefore party disciplinary organ needs to ensure parliament attendence by party members is always 100% absenteeism must be discouraged ,no joyriding we have to set an example to the rest on how serious the party is with parliamentary business and transformation of our Country for the betterment of all Kenyans.
    On nomination ,I think the nominees proposed by the Secretary General ,is good for the party since this parliament does require the calibre of pple proposed ,to deal with the PANUAs in legislative matters.Imanyara and Co.should not be self centered at this time ,better things are on the way when we finally get our rightful place as the Government,let’s not ruin it .

    Am actually upbeat after monitoring the election of the speaker and the eventual outcome,this time the “TOP -UP ” guyz despite topping up with Mr. WIPER ( ass kissing , wiping expert ) and Co.the miracle did not work,we carried the day just like we did on 27 Dec 2007.

    BRAVO!wana Chungwa ,pressure in all fronts,parliament,streets,offices,business till KINGDOM COME!

  35. Njuguna Kariuki says:

    Congratulations to Marende, Maalim and entire ODM team in parliament yesterday. I didn’t mind Kibaki being told off to his face-my wife felt pity on him.

    This is the first step to claim back that which we were robbed. I see us having elections soon- probably in 3 months so dont throw away your voters card.

    Anyone who has an idea of whta was going thru Kibakis head. His candidates lost just as he lost. He hoped there will be a blackout during the vote count lakini ashindwe.

  36. Njuguna Kariuki says:

    Mass action is our right. Civil disobedience is powerful-ask Mahtma Ghandi and MLK Junior. Lets keep the pressure.

  37. Lilian says:

    What was going through Kibaki’s mind was if only he could put Orengo in the torture rooms of Nyayo house

  38. Nick says:

    ODM cannot afford to have Imanyara and Co. nominated in parliament at this time. Yes, they did ODM proud by providing the party when it was needed. But one has to remember how and why they registered the party in the first place. Will they be able to resist the tempting goodies from PANUA, to sell their votes when we badly need them?

  39. Barongo says:

    ODM mpaka down….congratulations to Marende and Farah….I think this is the beggining of the End for Mwai Kibaki. Do any of you guyz know wats cutting so far in Nairobi?

  40. Baijo says:

    Congrats to all ODM and friendly party members for staying put to ensure we won in the parliament. Kibaki and his henchmen shamelessly stole our victory from the peoples president Raila. It will not be business as usual with kibaki / kalonzo henchmen until they realise they made a terrible mistake to the people of kenya.

    As we fight justice to ensure kibaki rigging does not take place again in future….

    My suggestions on nominations problem is that all ODM leaders and party officials should sit down and have candid talks to agree on way forward. Party leadership does not have to end in being parliament. We need to build a strong mass movement party that will uphold democracy at all times.

    With the succesful election of the ODM’s candidates for the speaker and his deputy should use their strength in parliament to push through popular party visions i.e. USAWA programmes, increase CDF funding, free education, fight corruption and injustice, change constitution, ugatuzi, etc. These popuplar programmes will endear the ODM party and leaders to the people in all corners of the country.

    Also use the parliamentary to reach out to all people of kenya whether they embrace ODM leaders or not. Let us use the opportunity to reconcile with all kenyans. Some kenyans from central and eastern regions were obviously misled to hate ODM by their dishonest and selfish leaders who misused state instruments to rig and cling on to power despite resounding rejection by the majority of kenyans. Justice will one day prevail and they will be put to shame.

    We shall stand by our people’s republic of Kenya president Raila Odinga in everything despite the frustrations from eligitimate kibaki misrule and senile dictatorship.

  41. Otieno says:

    The thief Kibaki prorogues Parliament

    This is one of the many reasons we need to change the constitution. He can put parliament in abeyance like this for up to 12 months!

    You cannot stop the Tsunami bwana Kibaki. Give up. Forget Karua and Michukis who have a stranglehold on you.

  42. kenyaturncoat@gmail.com says:

    Did i hear someone say ATI PRESIDENT KIBAKI. It was made clear that he should just be refered to as the MP FOR OTHAYA. A village thug turned urban mafia. More over Ababu said that whereas the E.C.K has not raised any question about the 207 parliamentaries seats, IT HAD SERIOUS DOUBTS ABOUT THE PRESIDENCY. It is rumoured that the settler community are saying that they dont want another Mugabe in Africa. They say even though they are losing alot of business, JUSTICE must be seen to be done, for a lasting peace.

  43. Mudekhere Owiti Silas says:

    I knew it..that ABABU will make me proud as a Budalangi voter…Kudo’s to the ODM team!!! That hecler Mutula saw red…did u watch Prof. frying the ‘miracle’ man? I guess he swallowed humble pie!

  44. ken says:

    I saw this and it sent chills down my spine, why would the police shoot unarmed individuals and kill them?!! Lets start the process of indicting Kibaki with crimes against humanity. http://youtube.com/watch?v=vcJqA2bdIyc
    Shame on Kibaki and his police chief, the blood of this young man is in your hands!!

    Kibaki and Michuki have turned this to be the worst govt in Africa.

  46. Maru Kapkatet says:

    THE NEW RUTHLESS KILLER ON THE BLOCK!

    Exits, ruthless killer Michuki. Enters, fast-learner killer Saitoti. To express his gratitude for being rigged back to parliament, Saitoti has to massacre like his predecessor.

    I used to think, and wrongly so as I now look back in hindsight, that Prof. George Saitoti made a rare error of judgement that sucked him into the Goldenburg scam.

    As the mass killings by security (no, they are actually life terminators) forces (which include Mungiki which has been given a facelift by Michuki and attired in police outfit) now unfolds in Kenya, George Muthengi Saitoti, a former VP and at one time an acceptable presidential contender, is now a ruthless killer.

    I tell Mr. George Saitoti that when they appointed him to be the Minister of Provincial Administration and Internal Security, they were not doing him a favour. They were finishing him completely by turning him from a potential presidential contender into a killer and an anathematic monster in Kenya.

    They wanted Saitoti to fry himself in his own fat and he is doing it with abandon. Why did they give Uhuru Kenyatta the Ministry of Local Government? Because it is a safe ministry – no controversies, no killings, and Uhuru will get to know and befriend many councillors. As for Saitoti, they reckoned that they could kill two birds with one stone – First, Saitoti to wreck himself out of giving Uhuru any competition and second, Saitoti to take over the killing spree from Michuki.

    Today, hardly a few days in the job given to you by your thief-number-one boss, you, George Saitoti, has ended the lives of four Kenyans who were protesting for their human and democratic rights. They were doing it in a peaceful manner but you unleashed deadly force on them. Why?

    Mr. Saitoti, you have been in government for a long time and you have a lot of experience. This, coupled with your advanced university education and many years of teaching at the University of Nairobi, where students used to indulge in violent demonstrations and no one killed them, should have equipped you with tools to handle ODM’s protests in a civil manner.

    You, Saitoti, could have talked with ODM and agree with them on what routes they could take in their protest marches and where they should not go. Instead, Saitoti, you waylaid ODM leaders and supporters and must have been cheering and hi-fiving with Michuki when you saw on live broadcasts the ODM leaders being chased down the road by your Mungiki “police” force.

  47. Otsiatso says:

    Oh Ababu!! You made my day. I have watched that video over and each time I like this you even more:

    “…We are not going to deal with political and electoral fraudsters, masquerading and exercisng illegally the executive authority of this nation”

    In his face!! ..and there is nothing the thief could do.

    Budalangi you did us proud for giving us Ababu

    Innocent Baya should be considered for the CNN award this year. The KTN reporter captured the killing of an innocent unarmed kenyan by a bloodthirsty vicious poorly paid policeman. Is the world watching. I suggest that we give a blind eye and deaf year to the other lukewarm stations.

  50. lexx says:

    Kiss 100 should play the role of telling kenyans the truth they are blaming ODM for all the mayhem that is happening in the country the drive presenters should know that the whole world so kibaki being rigged back infact the president of malawi was heard telling the opposition leader in malawi that he will do a kibaki when election are called.i believe kiss 100 has mature and resposible pple tell kenyans the truth esp shaffi u did act as if you are not in kenya yet you no that peace will only be attained once justice is done all that we want is a re run of the election if the mp for othaya won in fairness and now he has kalonzo on his side why cant he call the re run of the elections.
    All that we want is justice to be done we want a re run whether its going to cost 10 billion its not worth lives lost coz of kibaki’s rigged election and the world over knows its real it was stolen in broad day light and the international and local world was viewing and in full view of the camera.How do u become president with only two provinces yet you main rival won six provinces out of eight and yet you calim that you are a president.kibaki is a president of central and eastern.Rail Odinga is the people’s president.
    Justice be our shield and defender.ODM for-ever.

    Turcoat, You are right on the spot!!!
    the local musicians, comedians and the so-called “celebs” are the children of the previledged and wealthy. those who can’t eat bread WITHOUT jam and butter, so they can only sing about “peace”, without mentioning JUSTICE, they sing about “peace” so that they can continue eating their bread, jam and butter in thes safety of their leafy suburbs sorrounded by security and police. JUSTICE for the lowly is an INSULT to them.

    ODM, continue to fight for the JUSTICE for the poor and the oppressed.
    Anthem:
    …JUSTICE be OUR SHIELD and DEFENDER, (that is when we can proceed and sing)
    …May we dwell i unity peace and liberty
    …plenty be found within our borders!

    Dear Lexx,
    Having listened to Carol Mutuku for nearly a decade, having known her from the time when she had just joined capital FM and she pretended that she could not speak in Swahili (Until one of her old sent her a letter written in swahili ), having listened to Carol during the call in during the PRE-ELECTION polls that KISS carried out. I was totally convinced that she was A WIPER. Nyambane hot on her ASS has turned lukewarm. He blows hot and cold. See all his buddies were involved in the elections, Even if it wasPNU that is a stand. Notice that i have never mentioned the party i voted for. But i have chosen a stand. STAND FOR JUSTICE. SQWAT for shit – from the PNU govt. Dont stop listening to KISS, and other F.M Lukewarm stations just make sure they know you are listening by calling in and sending email.

    The European Community has just voted unanimously to reduce AID to Kenya. They have also said that further action will be taken unless there is a recount or re-run of the election. In their words, the presidential elections were not credible(Euphemism for stolen by the Gun). This might not upset the gravy PNU train. The amount that EU is planning to hold back is about 50 million Euro. The US on the other hand have not taken a stand. The AID meant for Kenya a whoopping 1 BILLION dollars. Do we have brothers out there in the US WHO have brothers, who have brothers and friend in high and low places – who can talk to the taxpayers there not to fund this KLEPTOCRACY.

    My plea to the ODM team is to look for investors to help rebuild areas such as Kisumu and Eldoret that have been affected the most.

    I sent Shafi and Kalekye of KISS 100 five emails and several texts. I similarly did the same to Nyambane and Caro Mutoko I quote some excerpts…

    “Its naïve 2claim that we are fighting for the rich…if we didn’t fight for these rights in the early 90s, even u KISS100 would not be on air!!! ……

    “Media stop practicing double standards n hypocrisy. mass action of the 90s freed airwaves that KISS100 n others enjoy now! Fact is, u’d not b on air!!

    “challenge me; should we reverse the gains n shut down ALL media hses except KBC? Of course the little we enjoy now is a product of mass action of 90s?”

    Caro tried calling me back but coz of her ego, she couldn’t sustain the conversation and hang-up!!

    I suggest guys that we re-focus and expose these people for who they are! They are now going to work coz of our struggle in the 90s. Let’s keep calling in, e-mail and text…from KISS100 to CITIZEN; etc… I think the middle-class is failing us a bit. I personally left my wife n kids in the USA to vote in Budalangi coz I knew it would make a difference! I don’t regret my choice of ABABU and AGWAMBO!!

Tommorow the muslim brothers will surprise you.

  61. tnk says:

    can ODM work on a plan that directly impacts Kibaki, Kivuitu and those who have put the country in the current mess or continue to hold a hard line stance. Mass protests are good and one would have assumed that the MP for Othaya would look at the unrest and immediatley call for some form of dialogue. Instead we have meaningless statements from the government parrot. All countries in Africa trying to break out into true democracy are looking at the events in Kenya and all democratic hopefuls are praying that justice will prevail before peace. ODM need to find a plan that directly impacts the MP for Othaya.

    All is not well in Kenya no matter what the parrot says, there has been no presentation of a president in a public place where the guard of honour is mounted with the usual pomp and splendour.
    Opening of parliament also in the past has included a guard of honour and mini celebrations, but again, the MP for Othaya was sneaked into the building to witness Kaparo being ousted and then out. Kibaki knows that his popularity starts and ends in Central and Eastern, and should stop disillusioning himself that he can be the president of Kenya.

    What I ask is why is it so difficult for him to acknowledge this reality? What happened to all those great sayings about old men being wise? Is Kibaki and his cronies suffering from a a major inferiority complex that he cannot step down since he knows the achievements of an ODM government will far supercede anything they can ever dream of? What ails this old man?

    Today as I went thru my usual duties I overheard a man and woman argue over the recent election and violence that has ensued. Apparently the man’s community has been chased from the area where they had stayed for years. What the man said next is what has kept me awake till now………….He said that today the VIOLENCE WAS AT OUR DOOR STEP, WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU. you see I for some time reared broiler chicken. A day before they are taken to the slaughter house, they are starved. The slaughter house might be full when you arrive with the chickens…..the chicken could by then be so hungry, they actually turn on one another eating flesh of other birds they have known all their lives.
    Today we are in such a precarious position that God forbid if one of the Pentagon members died, the country will be in such turmoil GOD knows. The question begs…..SHOULD WE STOP MASS ACTION…….
    NO. Hapana, never, MASS action must continue, the police have sworn to protect persons and property, they have the guns, the batons, the tear gas, we have nothing but our tears. If they protected property we would match to the venues peacefully. We have not closed the doors to dialogue, It is the RATTLE SNAKE MICHUKI who has hissed at our efforts. YOU SEE OURS IS MASS ACTION – WITHOUT VIOLENCE – at least for now.
    Because like the chicken remember that unless you think, act , adopt and if need be fight you and your siblings will always be someone’s food.

    Even as the mass action or is it polica action is ratched – there is important development in the international scene , at last the international community especially EU is taking actions. The US is worth less – if they had their way they would recognize Kibaki as they did Nigerian n govt. It is the shame and embarassment that is keeping them from doing so. How can the US claim ati both sides are to blame for the current situation when the member of Othaya [MOO] has all the state machinery behind him.
    Shame on the US!!

    Owiti

    Iam also dissappointed by some of these media personalities you know the problem with middle class guys like Caro is that for she is as a disturbance when she cant go to her favourite restaurant because she fears that her car wll be stoned, If she cant go to the cinemas or to Village market those posh areas to pass time because she fears for a comfortable life she shouts on top of her voice about peace how hyprocrite those people in Mathare,Kariobangi,Korogocho,Kibera are the first people who feel the pinch when a packet of unga is not available or mama mboga is not around to lend them some food stuff yet this people are ready to sacrifice that life of almost having nothing so that you and ne can have justice in this country, they have come out in 1990 whe we wanted multi party politics, they came out when we wanted reforms in 1997 and now they are risking all and we saw some being shot dead so that we can have true democracy but some people like Caro are comfortable living in a good house and eating even more than three meals a day and they are the ones who shout loudest as if they know the pain of having your one roomed house being tear gassed and being beaten senseless SHAME ON YOU MEDIA GUYS it is time we middle class people also join the struggle and stop waiting to eat the benefits gotten from the blood of those people leaving in slums to save us.

  67. Philip (The Visitor) says:

    I’m back.

    When Nyamweya sat down on the front table just before the announcement of election results, and announced that PNU tally shows that “Kibaki will win with over 4.5million votes and he’ll be followed by Raila with 4.2million votes” everybody laughed and thought the guy was crazy.

    When Wetangula said that Kuffuor is coming to Kenya to have a cup of tea with the president, we also thought the guy was crazy.

    Now I’ll not laugh when Michuki says that Koffi Annan et al have been invited by ODM and not government. I see this as a message send to us that PNU isn’t ready to bow down regardless of what pressure is put on them.

    Sometimes I always feel that if diplomatic effort fail to make Kibaki bow down then ODM needs to adopt other strategies.

    The economy is going to be affected so much because of mass action due to a number of reasons that because of time and space I cant mention. Everybody, especially the poor, will suffer. However, this is a sacrifice worth taking as it can lead to a better future for Kenyans. If it were not for mass action of 90s then multipartysm would not have been achieved, Moi would still be in power, Kibaki would not have been in power and Kenyans would still be crying from a -ve 0.3% economic growth – a 7% economic growth would not even have gotten a space in our dreams.

    If after a long period of time Kibaki remains relentless in “sticking illegally” in power what should ODM and we Kenyans do? This is the time that we should all think of a new strategy.

    From the statement of donors what was made clear was that they will freeze aid to ‘Kenya government’ or read ‘Kibaki government’ and not ‘Kenyan government’. However they didn’t mention about freezing aid to NGOs etc. It is in this case that I’ll recommend all other regions to work hard to achieve autonomy from ‘Kibaki government’. In short Kenyans should work hard to force majimboism and not ethnic majimboism, down Kibaki’s throat. Since we have one military, one parliament, one teaching unit etc then these majimbos should donate a percentage of their revenue to government for the purpose of payment to them unless there is a better way of handling this.

    The reason I’m going to these extremeties is because of the following:

    Equitable distribution of wealth is Kenyans’ right. Therefore any government that does not make sure this is done is violating the rights of common mwananchi. We all pay tax and it is unfair to take our taxes to other places or to pay police to kill us. It was disgusting to watch Michuki saying that the government will not build roads in Nyanza because the people in the place have burnt all the road’s machinery! For those who aren’t familiar with road works you need to know that this works are normally done by independent contractors who use their own machinery. Michuki was just trying to use that as an excuse to perpetrate unequitable distribution of wealth.

    In other words Kibaki government is worse now than it was. It’s not going to develop any area apart from Eastern, Nairobi and Central province. Kibaki had earlier proved that he is a Kikuyu president by visiting displaced Kikuyus in Burnt forest whereas he ignored all those in Jamhuri, Limuru etc, who are closer to State House. He went ahead to mention that they will be compensated for the loss they have incurred without mentioning what will be done to those who incurred loss in Kisumu as a result of the fracas. if this is the case what do you think I should do? Or we should do?

    If all ways to remove Kibaki from power fails then we should go for majioism where we are the ones who decides what to give the government, where we use our own resources to develop our places and not take the money to Kibaki government who then decides how to use it.

    Thanks.

    FUNDING THE INTIFADAH

    As I sit here in the comfort of my home in economic exile, I feel guilty i could do more on the ground. I have written to representatives, marched, e-mailed newspapers etc. I have never been prouder of ODM’ers.

    Now it is time ODM started soliciting funds from those of us in the diaspora to support the intifadah at home. Especially the families of those who have been martyred in this uprisng . They should not spend a cent in their up keep while their loved ones paid the ultimate price for the cause

    Agent for Change are you listening, tap the resources here in the US and UK just as you did during the campaign. Send one of the Pentagon members to spread the news and to raise funds.

  69. Lexx says:

    Owiti i do agree with u.all the fm stations came about because of mass action,multipartism came because of mass action and many more so when kiss fm and the like of citizen decide to blame everything on ODM that is truly unfair and pple who dont understand mass action should now that world over the language that the govt understands is mass action and we will not allow kenyan to be rule by pple who only want the rich to rem rich the national cake should be shared properly pple like Ali should know that the election was rigged and he was there whan all this was happening they should continue with the killing but one thing they should know is that one day someone will be held accountable with the extra judical killings.
    And for saitoti please forget being president for you are the one incharge of security and they are taking order.
    some help me out does saitoti have Kidz?

    I have a feeling that Mass Action will embarrass our HON ODINGA and the rest of the pentagon. 2 or so weeks ago, RAILA was the talk of everyone, world over, now with most people not supporting mass action, there are showing explicit disrespect to Raila. Soon the police might clobber them one by one.

    I strongly suggest that Raila uses parliament, it is his first time to be the leader of official opposition, and he has numbers in parliament. let Him go that direction. Again if the government does not take immediate and deliberate action to build Kisumu, the poverty levels for the entire Nyanza will shoot up. We are worse off than any other town in Kenya, in this post election period, shall we rise again?

    Guys, Lets go slow on this Mass Action thing, Its not helping us at all.

    steve i do agree with u all we want is justice and no matter what it takes.for mike please note that all the gains that the counry has made is because of mass action.
    econonic protests will contribute know that when the pple president is insisting he knows exactly what are the implications.i stand to be corrected but my questions is will we export stuff to E.U what will happen to miraa,coffee,tea etc.

  76. Let us not accept some betrayer masquerading as nationalist who have travilised the peaceful protests as a JALUO affair. Hell no.This thing is about kenyans being DEFRANCHISED.We cannot have long lasting peace without justice,these two are inherently linked.

  77. Peter Obuya says:

    Jamabinju, you are seriously misguided and i hope you are not serious. think of the implications of what you want to say before you say it. we want justice and i think yeah mass protests are just not the way to go. other better ways can be employed peacefully to deal with this situation. thanx

    i think mike u talk like a fool.

    its not the pentagon or raila who are advocating the mass action, its trhe ple who voted for them who will NEVER RELENT till they get what they want.

    by the way why do u do all the copy and past in each and every topic of discussion?

    if u think ua miopic reasoning can discourage us, am sorry to tell u UR very WRONG!
    i even doubt ua identity?
    maybe ur a mwangi something who want us to keep queit to ruled by thieves?

    u can keep quite if u like, but kenyans wont and they will fight till all of them are dead if that is whta UA ILLIGITIMATE preso kibaki want.

    we will spill our blood, b4 he rules us.

    we will remain un armed and be on the streeets each and everyday.

    u think the crowds are few, then ur wrong, the crowds arre growing much bigger everyday.

    if u want to know, tell ua father thief kibaki to just give us one day without police and we will raise no less than 5million kenyans peacefully acrooss kenya

    We rather deal with Al-Queda than US. US is watching kenyans die in the hands of so called Police(Uganda Soldiers) as they did with Rwanda then wend the damage is done is when they come running. Infact US should be told to take away their diplomats and embassy. The infidels are only interested in what gains them. If Kibaki can allow them to transport their illegal guns and drugs to Congo and other war torn countries then it is all right with them. We need to wake up and paralyze Ugandan economy by making sure that nothing passes through our land for simple reason, Museveni is the main East Africa’s problem leave alone TZ. This goon does not like seeing other countries progressing so that he can be seen as the most stable leader in Africa which is not the case. I don’t believe in fake miracles like Miopic thinker from Kamba land called Kalonzo but soon we will be having powerfull guns and suicide bombers in Kenya because the way this illegal goverment is pushing people, the pressure they are excerting on people is going to make a big diamond that they won’t know what to do with. Super bombs will be first made in Kenya soonest to destroy this illegal goverment. God is great and may this come to pass but with Kibaki ,Michuki,Karua out.

    Why our second liberation is yet to be completed
    By MUTAHI NGUNYI

    This week I want to give a suggestion to President
    Mwai Kibaki: He should fire his speechwriter! If we
    lived in a ”banana republic,” these people would
    have actually been charged with sabotage. What they
    gave the President to read on Jamhuri Day was flat and
    shoddy. In fact, his speech on this day sounded like
    recycled material from the Madaraka Day and Kenyatta
    Day addresses. And what is worrying is that his
    speechwriters did not even seem to notice the
    repetitions. The question we should ask here is why?
    The answer to this is simple: Maybe they also slept
    through the speeches! The long and short of things is
    therefore that someone is being negligent.

    Let us now turn to the fact that the President has
    finally put his portrait on our currency. In my view,
    there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. In fact,
    there would be nothing wrong if he put a family
    portrait on one of the currency notes. What we must
    understand here is that President Kibaki is a human
    being. He has urges and excesses. To deny him some
    things is therefore ridiculous. It is like placing a
    pot full of honey in front of a little boy and
    expecting him not to dip his finger into the stuff! In
    other words, our new President is cuddling in the
    warmth and comfort of the institutions that shaped
    former President Daniel arap Moi. And, if this is the
    case, why should we be surprised if he ”hatched”
    into a dictator?

    What we have witnessed in the last one year is the
    degeneration of President Kibaki from a reformer to a
    ”Toad King”. This process begins with the President
    becoming insensitive. At this point, he breaks one
    pledge after another without feeling a thing. And, as
    he does this, the question in his mind is: Where can
    you take me? In the case of the MoU for instance, we
    took him nowhere. The begrudged politicians yapped
    until the cows came home. Now the President has put
    his portrait on our currency and we will take him
    nowhere. The general attitude here is this: If you do
    not like it, you can sit on a pin! Numbing his sense
    to popular voices will definitely degenerate into a
    state of paranoia. At this point, the President will
    make one blunder after another. And instead of
    correcting his mistakes, he will increase his speed in
    the direction of the wrong. This is where former
    President Moi was when he introduced ”Project Uhuru”
    to the country. The crowds booed him, his loyal
    followers in Kanu abandoned him and even his own
    people questioned his wisdom. But the more we rejected
    his ”project”, the more determined he became.

    There is a lesson for President Kibaki here. He is
    increasingly becoming like Mr Moi during the 2002
    elections. He is not yet paranoid, but his
    insensitivity could develop into ”political
    blindness”. Who knows how low he will have sunk by
    the 2007 elections? And this is what worries me.
    Consider a hypothetical situation here. What would
    happen if President Kibaki decided to run for
    re-election in 2007 and lost? Would he and his men
    have the grace to hand over power peacefully? From the
    way they have behaved in the last one year, I doubt
    it. And where would that leave the country? At the
    risk of sounding crazy, I want to suggest the
    following: If we thought that Mr Moi would plunge the
    country into civil strife, he proved us wrong. Narc is
    the party to plunge the country into civil strife. You
    just have to listen to the FM stations and the call-in
    television programmes to see a pattern. From the name
    of the caller, you can almost predict what they will
    say and what side of the divide they will take. In a
    disputed election, such polarity would certainly take
    ugly proportions.

    But there are two possible ways out of this. The first
    one has to do with the agenda of the second
    liberation. This process was meant to achieve two
    things ? to remove Mr Moi from power and replace him
    with reform-minded leaders. This was done
    successfully. However, as we are beginning to realise,
    Mr Moi was not the problem. The problem was the
    institutions he inherited from the Kenyatta. To change
    the leadership without changing the institutions is
    like treating cancer with Malaraquin. This is partly
    why the ”institutional cancer” in the presidency is
    beginning to affect President Kibaki. Putting his
    portrait on our currency and junking the pre-election
    MoU are just manifestations of this cancer. This is
    why the other agenda of the second liberation was
    institutional reforms. Until this is completed, the
    second liberation will not have happened. More
    specifically, this refers to the constitutional review
    process.

    And, at this point I would want to address the
    delegates preparing for Bomas III on January 12, 2004.
    It is my hope that you have had time to reflect on the
    issues at hand in Bomas III. We are also told that the
    politicians have spent this long break to bribe you.
    In my view you should take the bribes and use the
    money to enjoy your Christmas. You must realise at
    this point that you are involved in politics and that
    in this game there is no morality. As such, you should
    have fun on someone else´s account! However, when it
    comes to voting, you must reject the ”bribe givers”
    and vote for the country. This is important because of
    the following reasons. If the second liberation had
    two phases, the first phase of replacing the
    leadership had to be carried out by 3.1 million
    voters. Replacing Mr Moi and his cronies was in my
    view the easy part. The second phase is the tough one.
    And this is where you come in. You are only 600
    people, and the future of our country depends on you.
    I have two questions for you at this point. One, as
    you vote for issues, will you be thinking of your
    ”tribal chief” or your children? In my view, your
    tribe is your children. If you make a constitution for
    your children, you will have made a constitution for
    Kenya . Two, consider the question of the Prime
    Minister´s post. And the question to you is this: If
    this post had been created before the 2002 elections,
    do you think President Kibaki would have ”trashed”
    the MoU? Do you think he would have put his portrait
    on our currency and retained corrupt ministers in his
    Cabinet? If the answer to these questions is no, then
    the cure to the ”institutional cancer” in the
    presidency is the creation of this post. Do think
    about it!

    The second possible way out of civil strife has to do
    with the Kikuyu. Now that the presidency has returned
    to the ”House of Mumbi”, some people from the
    community are convinced that it is there to stay. In
    my view, this kind of thinking is retrogressive and
    could result in ethnic animosity. Kikuyus should come
    to terms with the possibility that they could lose the
    presidency in 2007. As such, they should do two
    things: One, ”bank” with the other communities. This
    is important because they cannot survive alone in
    future. Two, they should disown the Kikuyu ”sharks”
    in the Kibaki government. Unless they do so, the
    entire community will be blacklisted simply on account
    of a few people. In future, a Kikuyu presidential
    candidate would be rejected because of the misdeeds of
    isolated people. My submission therefore is: They
    should not support this regime blindly!

    All guest houses, all bars owned by those sympathetic to the illigitimate regime should be bycotted.

  90. Mike Okello says:

    I am not supporting Mass action. I am a Kenyan, which is more important than being Luo. the talking of powerful guns and suicide bombers is unfortunate for any Kenyan. We must preach peace.

    Again,in view of the closeness of the election result, i believe there are broadly
    as many people in favour of a Kibaki victory as an Odinga one. Therefore, the idea
    that there is an overwhelming majority in the country in favour of protesting for
    political change is clearly not the case. Instead, Mr Kibaki remains very popular in
    large parts of the country, notably in the central region , Nairobi, and the East
    and North East regions (as he won in the 4 provinces), a factor that in my view undermines the idea that there will be some sort of wave of national protest that would ultimately drive him from office.

    Also, As well as mass protests, the opposition has two other main ways to challenge the government: through the courts or through parliament. There are, however, problems with both. Using the courts to obtain a legal ruling on the election results could take years. Petitions for the last election have only just been resolved. As such, while a possible route, the outcome looks highly unpromising. In the case of parliament, although provisional results indicate to us that this is likely to be dominated by ODM, which would give the opposition some power, this should not be overstated.
    Mr Kibaki’s first term in the Kenyan parliament was also highly divided and fluid
    and the government struggled with passing much needed economic reform and
    clamped down significantly on corruption. Moreover, Mr Kibaki’s previous
    governments were sidetracked, certainly in his government’s first few years in office,
    on constitutional reform. Yet, these administrations still managed to build coalitions
    to pass legislation. In many ways neither the ODM nor Mr Kibaki’s Party of
    National Unity (PNU) should really be seen as political parties in the traditional
    sense of the word, but loose alliances, whose members largely pursue their own
    interests under the banner of the party, rather than working for a party. Moreover, the
    offer of political office is still very alluring to many parliamentarians, in our view. In
    sum, we believe parliamentary opposition to the president may be important, but in
    the end it is likely to achieve little especially if the president makes active efforts to
    split the loyalty of the opposition.

    I think we in support of Hon Raila A. Odinga, should overtake the govt (read kibaki’s govt), by being pioneers of peace. that’s the way to go. so that if nothing come our way this time round, we are sure of taking statehouse come 2012. Come on guys! our youth’s are wasting away in the streets while other areas are on with their livelihoods!

  91. Walter says:

    Mike sounds like some unimaginable ignorant bloke in the same category as the Kibaki’s and others living a lie that peace can be obtained through prayers and FM peace messages.

    The kenyan crisis is not an ‘ACT OF GOD’ it is purely an “AN ACT OF EVIL MINDED MAN’,therefore no amount of harassement of God through prayers by those hypocratical clegymen/women will make God intervene.Man made crisis require man made solutions!we know the MP of Othaya has the key ,just by forcefully taking the state house door keys from Ka mama “Rucy’s”hand bag and vacating the house on the hill.

    To protect and salvage Democracy ,Mass protest,Strike,Sittings,civil disobedience, boycotts parliament among the known agitation strategies are applied.The objective is to paralise the economy for the illegal government not to be able to govern.
    Since the the declaration of Othaya MP as the president for Central and Eastern ,the Kikuyu Revenue Authority has been loosing 2billion a day,this is a reflection that the Protest are so far successful.
    Thanks to the ignorance from the police commissioner on economic matters ,the massive deployment of security personnel is draining the illegal government coffers dry,ammunition used,tear gas ,fuel for vehicles ,allowances for the police ,remember this was not planned for therefore the funds may soon dry out and the result would be most security vehicles used in the operations will be grounded due to lack of fuel,some cops will thro the towel etc.
    The more protest the better sooner or later the economy will not be able to raise the 93% required for financing the illegal government budget,the 7% the donors will not release and we shall have our way.
    Therefore Mike or whoever it is ,this is not about Raila and ODM Pentagon ,it’s about Justice!you must be very ignorant about the Socio-economic disparities,which must be addressed by a government responsive to the people.

    Mass protests has been successful ,no business as usual, we ‘re moving a notch higher ,I have already withdrawn all my money from Equity Bank ,we want to boycott anything and everything that smells off those who have brought us to where we are today because of GREED AND GLUTTONY to control all the key sectors of the economy,Telecommunication,Transport,Power and Electricity,Financial Sector,Stock Market etc.
    Their strategy is to have all this sectors under their wraps before 2012,whoever takes over in 2012 will not have the economic power and will have to lick and kiss the ass of this POWER GRABBERS.
    Mike be enlightened not shortsighted,ODM supporters are objective and longsighted I doubt whether you subscribe to our party.

    I feel you, I feeling as offended as you are, You can doubt my loyalty, but i probably have supported RAO, Longer than you have. I must have been the first ODM supporter to believe that we lost the elections by about 150,000 votes to Kibaki. We were misled by Steadman and Dick Morris. That why i have been able to heal faster and to make peace…2012 we should think twice.

    … Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the sons of God….

    Lets be nationalists, Lets handle defeat responsibly. we will still be in Kenya even if brookside, city hopper collapses. My account is in Equity Bank Kisumu and right now equity Kisumu are conducting their businesses half open, with 20 people entering per time and they are served in closed doors. How long can we operate like this?

    Yours is a wrong strategy again, read about equity bank its asset base and ownership portfolio. you do not withdraw peanuts and expect a African Giant bank to collapse.

    mike,

    your comments are inconsistent. On the same day you have posted the following

    ==
    I am discouraged… I will never vote again!
    ==
    we have a chance in 5 years time. I am not discouraged, I’m set with my vote, i am ready to support ODM again and again and again…
    ==
    This is not life and death (are you serious??)
    ==
    I also think we are loosing out on the Mass Action.. things are turning black
    ==
    right now equity Kisumu are conducting their businesses half open, with 20 people entering per time and they are served in closed doors. How long can we operate like this?

    etc

    Anyway for many of us, Justice and Peace is what we are looking for.
    Whens asked to “share” what is rightfully yours with someone who stole it, you need to ensure for the sake of the future that
    a) the thief will not steal it again and
    b) is punished for the offense
    c) some mutually agreeable “sharing” plan is in effect

    as you can see dialogue is option 3 but without the first two in place, then its meaningless

    Having left Kenya 16years ago it is shocking to see blatant violation of the basic pillars of democracy and a what we are seeing in our beloved country is a degeneration into the abyss instigated by a few who are tenaciously mainting the status quo .The ‘massacre’ committed by the police force is further proof as to how far the dark forces behind Kibaki’s illegitimate claim to the presidency are willing to go.
    The People of Kenya have spoken and upto the General election Kenya was always regarded as a beacon of hope in Africa.Now due to the actions of a few, the very people who have looted the public coffers ,our country is slowly and surely edging towards a paraiah status like Zimbabwe.Kibaki thinks that if Mugabe weathered the storm of international condemnation then he can do it too.
    This strategy is ill advised and a potential trigger for public discontent and a potential trigger that would descent the country into anarchy and posssibly civil war with the country divided into two.
    Its seems that Kibaki and his hechmen are hinging all their hopes of riding the storm and hoping that opposition will fade .Its clear that they intend to use the massive resources at their disposal to swing parliamentary votes their way and even entice members to cross the house floor.
    We need to look through the prism and avoid the potential pitfall which is all there for us to see……..the situation of Ivory Coast where due to dominance of the government and economy by a particular group and the inequitable distribution of wealth led to a civil war and the country divided into two halves with the ‘new forces’ controlling the north of the country.It clear that this illegal regime is digging in and remains defiant to the international community and ODM’s call for an independent outside mediation.
    Our president elect calls for a transitional government to oversee a rerun of the elections carried out by an trully neautral overhauled and fully constituted Electral Commission is the only panacea to save our hard earned democracy.
    What we as the opposition need to do is create a think tank that would ”out manouver and counter any moves to create divisions within our ranks and remain steadfast in facing the challenges ahead.

    It is imperative that we consolidate efforts and keep the flame of justice burning and get rid of the oppressive regime through parliament as its the only viable alternative to blood shed.

  102. zizi says:

    Hello ODM and some PNU inquistive eyes. It has been nice being part of the movement for change. That spirit for change should not be downed. Justice must be done if we have to bequeath a country called Kenya to the futre generation. I am personally disurbed by the cost we have incurred because of a mismanaged election. Someone mentioned that perhaps Mukele is the hardworking guy who covered Kivuitu’s incompetence. Holding other factors constant, I tend to agree with that hypothesis.

    Disturbing and traumatisinfg have been the scenes we have all oberved. I have stopped watching news pictures especially when peace custodians keep on shouting without the benefit of their cranium. ODM has tried its level best. The lessons I learn from all these is something people should start thinking about.

    First, kenya will never be the same again. Although I believe the problem cause of violence is poverty within our veins as a nation, mismanaged elections were just a trigger and ethnicity became the victim. But there is some relationship in all these factors. Kenya will never be the same again because, in our constitutional engineering, we will have to face issues of ethnicity more boldly. We cannot deny that fact. I ve no specific ethnic background – cluttered here and there as fate and choice would determine. But we have to face it and ensure that each and everyone feels he belongs in the sufferings and joys of a nation. That is justice. I am not talking about brotherhood, but dry justice. If everyone can see his/her portion or stake whether you like each other or not, Kenya will stand. that is the function of justice. The spirit of brotherhood as cultivated by various religions, is only a bonus.

    Kenya will not be the same again because we will all have to find a formulae of coexistence. it doesn’t matter who is president now. Whoever it is, has the burden of ensuring every Kenyan belongs. We can not give a blind eye to poverty and inequitable distribution of national wealth and poverty!

    Kenya will not be the same again because, our conscience shall be reigned by suspicion of one another. Only the courageous will survive through. Since all of desire to survive, I can see a courageous nation that will always rise from the dust and move on.

    Importantly, Raila’s presence on the land called Kenya is a blessing. He has accomplished many things for this country that we cannot we seem not able to pay him back enough. If truly he was to be president, then one day he is gonna be. But to me, I have reached a point of paying tribute the great man of Kenya. Today, if two biographies were written – Raila’s and Kibaki’s, which will sell the more? You may guess. So I am trying to be content that Raila has contributed a mass of democratic change for this country more than what any president has ever done. Whether he be president or no president, Raila has played his role already.

    The last but important thing. Kenya will never be the same again because, people will no longer believe in institutions of democracy unless there are fundamental changes. We are going to have the worst voter turn out in the next general elections. I am happy it will be that way. For that reason, and perhaps as a sign of my protest to a mismanaged election by the killers of democracy, by people who want to remain in the past while more that half the population has the passion for the future, I have decided today to launch an ELECTION BOYCOTT CLUB. In simple terms, one million club members who will not vote in the next general elections. EBC will allow people to exercise their freedom not to vote. I am happy to be a member of this club unless convinced otherwise. JOIN my EBC. Bye and Let Kenya Rise.

    Many have questioned the success of the mass action. to me the fact that the mp for othaya cannot venture beyond the the state house srroundings is a reounding victory.

    The Third Liberation

    The 1st liberation was against the white settler community who had eventually taken over all Kenyan resources through colonization which was to become the independence of Kenya. The settler community friendly media then, portrayed a picture of kikuyu uprising. Using this front they then went on to massacre many freedom fighters as well as innocent villagers using armed forces (police, army etc).

    The 2nd liberation was against the dictatorship of Moi and his band of kleptomaniacs. Successfully ushered in by partnerships of very many players.

    The 3rd and final liberation would have been to celebrate true democracy, justice, equity and good governance based on democratic principles. This would have ushered in the restoration of dignity and pride, in ourselves as individuals as well as a nation, in the institutions that should serve Kenyans equally and without favor, and in the delivery of services to all Kenyans. This would have been a turning point and new milestone for greater strides and achievements. Yet every day that goes by, takes us back from the 3rd liberation to the 2nd, back to the 1st liberation and who knows may be even worse only but with faces that amazingly once fought the very same fight or at least that was what it appeared to be at the time.

    The massacre of and brutalization of especially the community in western Kenya and negative media is identical and almost eerie historic playback of the actions carried out by the colonialists against the communities in central Kenya. The counter animosity against the PNU sympathizers in these six provinces is identical to the pre independence mau mau violence against homeguards and colonial sympathizers.

    Kibaki/PNU hanging on to power are the same exact signs witnessed in the dictatorships experienced prior to 2002.

    Is history repeating itself or is someone deliberately re-enacting history? Are we able to tear away from this cycle and move on? Can Kibaki heal the nation by extending a genuine offer of reconciliation with Raila, not through mediators, not through phony Kalonzo led outfits, but person to person and iron out these huge differences? Can Kibaki restore faith in our humanity, good and just governance in our institutions and due diligence and integrity in our leadership, so that our youth and children still understand that its about merit, hard work and building relationships that will steer Kenya to prosperity and not shadowy collusions, underhand deals and manipulation/misuse of authority.

    The 3rd liberation has been clouded by the reintroduction into politics of ethnicism and ethnic rivalry as the backbone. There were some horrible errors in Mois regime, but he would not allow ethnic chauvinism to override national interest and did his best to stem its growth.

    Unfortunately the same cannot be said of Kibaki who has had three grand opportunities to usher the country into a new and greater national pride but has in fact done the opposite and revived dormant ethnic undertones and stereotyping while largely exacerbating kikuyu chauvinism in those that actually believe in it, at the expense of nationalism. Opportunity No.1 election in 2002 with overwhelming national support yet we see skewed appointments, opportunity no.2 dissolution/reconstitution of cabinet in 2005 but he tipped scales further on the already skewed appointments, opportunity no.3 to forge nationaly unity but even worse pitting entire central and upper eastern provinces and communities against the rest of the country and through the valiant efforts of a biased media managed to portray this as a Luo vs Kikuyu affair (i.e back to square one Kenyatta vs Jaramogi) and then ultimately, literally stealing the election. Shameful that 45 years after independence, we are still struggling with the same social and economic evils. Some claim its people around Kibaki that are bad. May be so, but that is excusable for a 10 year old sent off to boarding school for the first time and totally unacceptable for anybody in position of leadership and authority. Ditto Kivuitu.

    The 3rd liberation requires commitment of purpose and determination. We owe it to ourselves and to our children, thats the reality and we can only become better by encouraging advancement through personal and collective integrity, due diligence, responsibility, merit, hard work, determination, commitment, accountability, justice, equality, peace, tolerance, forgiveness, brotherhood and national unity and the zeal and energy to push it through. Yes! All of these things even if they repeat over and over and more .
    There are of course shortcuts that circumvent all this but with lethal consequences, as the events we have seen in the past 3 weeks have shown. With a common purpose and goal we can be true and loyal to ourselves and each other. We are an ODM family by virtue of our shared vision.

    We need strong, solid, high impact, far reaching and effective strategies. The violence and killings are unfortunate and should be avoided but we must press on. Lets look out for each other and explore each and every avenue that will bring about the third liberation. We need actionable solutions quickly. Above all we cannot tire.

    My fellow Kenyans

    What is this defeatist language i hear from your comments it is sad day that some people are like Mike have started even thinking that Kibaki won the election and to others thinking that the mass actions are fruitless and even others are saying the pentagon behave like opposition this is truly a sad day. Look at the young men who were shot senselellsly in Kisumu, the young boy who was shot dead, the young girl who was shot dead in Kibera do you Kenyans think that victory will be given to you in a silver platter forget it one thing i have learned in Kenya is that to have change you have to fight for it tooth and nail.Kenyans if it was not for us pushing the pentagon to make sure that our win doesn’t go to the drain they would have easily formed a govt. of national unity and it would have been kazi ieendelee so let us give constructive suggestions on the way forward rather than critisizing leaders whom we told them to fight for us. Now to the way forward the other side(thieves) have chosen there nine people for dialogue(after realising that mass action is working) i suggest this line up on our side:

    Musalia Mudavadi(lead odm like kalonzo leading pnu)
    William Ruto
    Sally Kosgei
    Najib Balala
    Joseph Nyagah
    Charity Ngilu(to deal with martha karua)
    James Orengo(to deal with mutula kilonzo)
    Ababu Namwamba
    Henry Kosgei

    RAO should not indulge himself talking to the likes of Kalonzo he should wait to talk to Kibaki infront of an international mediator.

A strategy has to be mapped out.ODM should find a way of getting the Bomas draft subjected to a referendum now alongside putting pressure on Kibaki to step down.

    I was cornered by the ever-unfriendly GSU officers after a demonstration in Kakamega Town on Wednesday beaten up and taken to court and charged on the same date. I wasn’t surprised when I and my two friends were charged for inciting the public to riot and participating in a violent riot (two counts), very different from what was recorded in the OB. According to the OB, the reason for our arrest was participating in an unlawful assembly. Come to the charge sheet, the story had changed. Any way, that’s the Kibaki government we’re fighting. We were however remanded for two days pending processing of our bond. We’re now out, stronger than ever before.

    I thank my fellow Kenyans and especially the true patriotic bloggers on this site who will stop at nothing to see justice done to this nation. I narrated part of my experience to Silas Owidi Mudekhere. While in the prison remand for those two days, I learnt a lot, some of which I’ll be sharing with you guyz piecemeal.

    I have come to discover that this site is getting infiltrated with anti-justice pundits baptizing themselves Luo like names. This fellow calling himself Mike Okello is one such masquerader. I agree with pabokenya. This might be a Kariuki or Kihoro calling himself Okelo to play around with our psychology. We cant avoid such fellows because this a public forum, but we can downplay their comments and take them as mere sideshows.

    Some of the things I learnt about while in remand remain with me, not to be shared on this blog, especially with Mike’s around. I’ll be sending an elaborate mail to the blog administrator on the issues I bumped across while in remand. That’s not meant for public consumption.

    This is my take on the gimmicks Mr. Kibaki is playing with Kenyans. The reconciliation committee is one such gimmick and I suggest, just like Faith, that Raila should have nothing to do with that. Please President RAO, unless you’ve been playing around with our intelligence since the results were rigged in favour of Kibaki, DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY TALKS WITH THE KIBAKI-LED GROUP. It’s a well-known fact that the peace this country is looking for lies entirely in Kibaki’s own hands, that he should do the most honourable of all things and step down. Not even your MPs should share a peace-talk table with these fraudsters. Please. Please. Please. You do this, we shall revolt against both you and Kibaki. Our departed brothers and sisters are not coming back to life, and any kind of back-door negotiations wont be taken lightly. You would instead have accepted the results on 30th Dec 2007 if sleeping with the enemy is the best your team can agree to do.

    There are so many ways. I mean, so many many ways of bringing down Kibaki to his rightful position. Sitting down with his team (remember, he’s not including himself. What an insult to Kenya.) will instead cement him to the throne. Its that dangerous. I wonder why the demonstrations should step in the first place. i dont agree with the idea. Boycotting Kibaki-friendly companies sounds good but unrealistic. Take for instance Equity bank. A good number of Kenyans were duped into opening accounts and worse still, saving with the said bank. Telling them to boycott would be equal to telling them to starve themselves to death, for there savings are with those brats. So as much as we look at it as a bright idea, we should supplement it with demonstrations and other effective ways, like instructing the six provinces not to pay taxes to this illegitimate government.

    I know you’ll tell me that what about the civil servants. Wont they be taxed straight from the headquarters by the government. My answer is YES, THEY WILL. If you didn’t know, those are the middleclass we’re talking about, and they top the list in letting mass action protagonists down. Let them bear the burden for the whole country and the next thing you’ll see is them taking to the streets, even without Captain Raila’s order. Government employed teachers, doctors, nurses and even university students have been a major let down in our struggle for 3rd liberation. While others are busy seeking justice on the streets, they are busy stealing their ways into offices and places of work. End of day, they reap where they didnt sow. Patriotic Kenyans take the cows to graze and they (civil servants) simply wait to milk them and enjoy the spoils. Everybody must get out and stand up for right, join in the fight and be a soldier for justice. More on this later.

    Hi Mike,

    Are you sure you know what you are talking about? I pitty you my dear. If you are married, tell your dear wife to explain to you what other Kenyans mean by mass action. If you are not then your sister or work mate.
    We must fight for our rights. I wish I knew how to make a bom. I could have been throwing to those police when they stop us from entering Uhuru park. I am mad and that mwizi from Othaya is not my preso. Yeye ni preso wa Lusy, Wambui, Karua, Kalonso, Michuki and Kimunya.

    Ladies and Gentlemen

    These PNU guys have made theur decision not to give up . why are some guys like mike sounding as there are tired with the struggle. its to too early to asses the results of our struggle. its gonnna take a long time, its only our persistance and patience that will pay. The mentallity of the architect of the whole problem is that stay put and soon you will find ODM giving up the srtuggle.
    My experience with IPK is,will have to have patience and understanding. MANY will pose as ODM with a lot of money but thy will b out to destroy the movement. this guy mike is one of them. Therefore we will have to continue with the struggle with persistence and patience, Go aruond and look at the book of history , you will notice there are no struggle that are won over night.
    we need to find new ways to continue with the stuggle, we have the brains to take the guilty. the people s power is mightier than any army on earth.

    we can over them without anybody dying , without destroying any property , here i would like to narrate one story i read in one of the MANY ARTICLE MUTAHI NGUNYI used to write
    THere was this one peasant family who were living beside a hill side, every year there were cultivating the land but there were not yielding enough produce , This trend went on for along time until one day the father and the son decided to lok for a solution . after sitting down they found out that the hill which was infront of there piece of land was the problem , so they decided to remove trhe hill no matter how long it will take them, next dat they embarked on their mission to remove the hill , it was of course a very big task . however there were determined to remove the hill. ONE MORNINGB WHEN THEY WOKE UP THEY FOUND THE HILL HAD BEEN SWEEPT Y A STRONG CURRENT and the land was now a good flat piece of land.

    What do we learn from this story……… DETERMINATION, DETERMINATION , DETERMIATION ON A JUSTICE COURSE. almighty ALLAH IS ONE OUR SIDE.

    What are these absurd ideas this Mike man is talking about. Kweli huyu mtu ametumwa to pour cold water on what we have struggled to build here. Where do you come from? How do you want to leave your family when you are not here one day? Man open your eyes! The fact that you have a job today does not mean that your son/daughter will have one like yours. There is so much inequality in this country and we are the generation that have realised it, seen it, are living through it and are experiencing it firsthand. We cannot let it go unpunished. And my brother…these people are not going to stop one day and tell us ooh please come and take what we grabbed from you, sorry it was rightfully yours never! I told you the other day on this blog that Kibaki is not going to wake up one day, knock onto Raila’s door and hand over the preseidency that he stole never. If he does that, this frail man will drop dead there and then!

    What is wrong with you? Which school of thought are you getting such bizarre ideas from? Are you living in this Kenya? It seems to me that I know where you are coming from, and man you know that Kisumu city right now is a ghost city, open your eyes and see. The time is now and today and today repeat with me, or else your children are going to be slaves in this country under you watch and you wouldnt be able to do anything about it! We have come from far, and we cannot let ourselves go back there, we have reached a point of no return, we must soldier on.

    And you talk of five years Did you say 5 years waiting? Do you know how many days those are? Do your mathematics….that is close to 2000 days of hard labour with no returns when somebody is busy somewhere looting your hard earned taxes that should be used to make your life easier here. I am shocked that today’s men can give up that easily, why are you throwing your hands up in defeat? Where are the real men?

    Raila and the Pentagon, there is no way you are going to attend a peace talk chaired by that loudmouth Martha Karua, the dim-witted Amos Kimunya, and the mad Kalonzo Musyoka with his team of anomalous beings. You do not belong there. Wait and join talks with Kibaki and Koffi Annan period. If nothing comes from it again, I still stand my ground then go ahead and form a parallel government! Kibaki cannot continue the loot that he and his kinsmen are so determined to do. NO!

    Dont you see because of mass action now they have started feeling the pinch..the tourism industry is on the brink of collapse, there is no donor funds, revenue collection is somewhere close with the dogs, their make believe NSE is losing out, the shilling is down…yet they have a myriad of things to do; the free secondary education, pay the civil servants, pay their tired and hungry police, run the country, and not to forget that they still have some looting to do! What will they loot? themselves?Hohohooo treat yourselves Kimunya my poor finance minister, I pity this Kibaki win?

    This old man has got himself into some murky waters and the end to it seems so far I know he is cursing each day he wakes up alive.

    ODM must keep on changing strategies. I believe time is ripe for them to come up with radical legislations to free Local authorities from local govt Ministry control.

    They must also source for funding to run local authorities.

  121. Walter says:

    I believe the call for economic boycott is to create an enabling environment for the Koffi Anan led mediation in the coming week,while keeping up the pressure on the economy .Don’t forget any business needs customers ,the government needs to collect taxes from the businesses ,money generated through purchase of goods and services from such companies.Therefore when we boycott the major companies i.e farmers not selling their milk to brookside,customers closing their a/c and transfering their savings to other banks,Equity will have less money to circulate /lend as a result of decrease in customer base,Citi hoppa,KBS etc if possible use matatus atleast you will be helping an ordinary Kenyan investor as opposed to the GLUTTONS.

    I believe the truce on Mass protest is just temporary to allow for assessment of the effectivenes,recouping of energy ,planning and organising,then after the mediation if no favourable outcome ,we are back to the streets.

    ODMers,aluta continua the economic boycott may not have a glaring impact but then is a tactical retreat to keep up the pressure on revenue generation for the KRA ,thus creating gaps in the budget which would be hard to fill and negatively affecting those programmes that require government funding as mentioned by Elizabeth,security operations,salaries for civil servants,procurement of goods and services etc.
    You all understand what that means ,when a government cannot finance it’s operations and implement it’s programmes ,then more strikes from those dependent on the government like teachers,civil servants,doctors and nurses,police,military alas we will have achieved our goal.
    MASS PROTEST,BOYCOTTS,GO-SLOW,STRIKE AND JUSTICE WILL BE BORN !
    FORGET ABOUT THIS MASQUERADER MIKE ,HE MUST BE ONE OF THOSE SILVER SPOON IN MOUTH PRODUCT OF THE GLUTTONS VOMITING ON KENYANS SHOES,AS WELL AS BAREFOOT KENYANS.

    The sad story of Kenya seizure by former village boys
    …They left the village to the big city but forgot to shed out the villageizm in them.

    The current leadership in Kenyan Statehouse is in Utopia. The PNU team is a minority in the House of parliament. Democracy means rule by the majority and ODM is the Majority. Why are they putting a cart before the horse PNU…sorry mmh! Hon KIbaki please resign if you value respect the Kenyans especially the youth.

    Am from the PNU strong holds but in issues of National importance. Hon Saitoti taught as how the Nation is indeed important than the individual Its Hon Raila turn sir and we now know who Kenyan dreams are set and ……for I better stop there.
    Not without this line @ 28 yrs am still not stable and my parent and their peers are educated like our brand leaders at high office but were denied advancement the same way Raila is being betrayed.

    Raila is true leader and a mothoni- WA (in-law) my fellow kikuyus rember that .Were we not taught that in-laws are not bothered when growing up as a custom .I will marry a LUO too to make this point clear to dudes heads. We are in a brand new Kenya and Not in Central Kenya. In fact talk of brand new world.

    Vinjana (youth) of Kenya spoke and they are eager to have what they bargained for installed. Our Raila.This Informed Raila.PNU Live with this fact. and like some body said whom we all Know your read –“(PNU) kitchens during Elections were working over time cooking votes”.alllalla how do you explain 115% voters turn-out in there it was reported or over 30% stuffing of votes in Thika-Central Kenya.

    Please Hon Kibaki this is lost causes for PNU don’t you see that…..

    COMRADES LET US BE CAREFUL WITH THE KIND OF MASS ACTION THAT WE CALL FOR. ONE OF THE MASS ACTION THAT WAS ADOPTED BY THE INDIANS FOR THEIR FIGHT FOR INDEPENDENCE WAS SHITTING IN PUBLIC PLACES. YOU SEE THEY KNEW THAT THE MZUNGU LIKED CLEANLINESS AND DRAFT OF FRESH AIR IN THE MORNING. WHEN THE MZUNGU WOKE UP IN THE MORNING HE WOULD FIND SHIT RIGHT FROM HIS DOORSTEP. HE FINALLY LEFT. FAST FORWARED SEVERAL DECADES LATER, MANY INDIAND ARE STILL AT IT- YES SHITTING BY THE ROAD SIDE. DURING MY FIRST VISIT TO THIS BEATIFUL COUNTRY IN THE 1990’S, I ARRIVED AT 4.30 AM. I WONDERED WHY SO MANY PEOPLE WERE SQUATTING BY THE ROADSIDE LISTENING TO WALKMANS. I LATER REALIZED THAT THEY WERE SHITTING. HENCE I COINED A QUOTE- “STAND FOR YOUR RIGHTS AND SQUAT FOR SHIT”
    YOU SEE GANDHI’S “DRIVING MOTTO WAS SIMPLE LIVING AND HIGH THINKING”
    AND YES I AGREE WITH OMUTO WHEN HE SAYS WE SHOULD NOT CLOSE OUR ACCOUNTS AT EQUITY. TOO BAD I HAVE CLOSED MINE ALREADY. FRANKLY SPEAKING HOW MANY OF YOU EVEN HAVE ACCOUNTS OR SOMETHING IN THE ACCOUNT? I SUGGEST PUT SOMETHING IN THAT ACCOUNT AND PULL OUT WHEN MOST APPROPRIATE BOYCOTT THE LUXURIES (BEER, SOFT DRINKS, YOU KNOW THAT AND PUT THIS IN ACCOUNTS. REMEMBER BEFORE THE ISRAELITES LEFT EGYPT, THEY BORROWED JEWELRY FROM THE EGYPTIANS- THEY WERE EMPOWERING THEMSELVES ECONOMICALLY AND SETTING SOMETHING ASIDE FOR THE RAINY DAY). DO YOU THINK THAT THE PRESENT GOVT WILL BE MORE INTERESTED IN CLOSING ACCOUNTS OR WORRIED BY GROWING OF ACCOUNTS IN THE OPPOSITION AREAS ?
    MY SUGGESTIONS, MANY OF THE CIVIL SERVANTS, DOCTORS , TEACHERS AND NURSES , INDEED MOST PEOPLE FROM THE PRIVATE SECTOR ARE STILL POORLY PAID, I SUGGEST THAT THEY START AGITATING FOR THEIR RIGHTS BY HAVING GO-SLOW STRIKES RIGHT OUT TO LOCK OUT STRIKES. YOU SEE THE CHOICE OF MASS ACTION IS ONE THAT WOULD BE CAREFULLY IN THE PLANNING AND LETHAL IN THE EXECUTION. BUT IT SHOULD BE ONE THAT SHOULD BE EASIEST TO DISCARD. MAYBE OUR DESCENDANTS WILL BE ABLE TO ENJOY A DRAFT OF FRESH AIR.

  128. Jane says:

    Thumbs up to Mike, bravo!!. we need level-headed persons like you. Our ODMers must understand mass protests in the early 90’s did not involve destruction of livelihoods, burning churches ( earning themselves curses), killing their neighbours, destroying property including the water company, destroying the railway line that they use to go home, etc. etc.. Economic activities, schooling etc is going on in the country except in ODM strongholds of Kisumu, central Rift, Kibera. Surely will we start crying foul of poverty when we have created it ourselves?

    Further as mike puts it , boycotting products of puported PNU supporters is a dream. How do you remove your little savings from Equity and expect the giant to collapse?, others will put their savings their, secondly and logically thinking how do you fail to board a bus to work, get late consistently and eventually sacked!!. Lets have more of Mikes.

    Thumbs up to Marende the new speaker for respecting the rule of law. ODMers, we must understand Marende has now moved out of ODM . he did this on the first day of office when he ruled Orengo out of order.

    So ODMers as strategies are designed to express anger on the election results, remember the song ” son do not get yourself into trouble”.

    Bravo Mike! Bravo Marende!

    i want to tell you that victory for all agents for change in kenya is not far.he was sworn in by chief justice at night and secretly.he will go the same way soon.

    At this point its for kibaki’s good that he cooperates.

    time is up kibaki

    you sent us national resistance movement soldiers
    from uganda becouse we voted you out.you are executing luos and even massacering them becouse of raila.it is not raila who voted you out.

    you have send thousands of GSU to eldoret to protect your people.how long will they sorround them ,this is not the way for peace.you did not do this in mt elgon !

    their time in rift valley went with the stolen vote

    time will tell you the bitter meaning of this

    you trusted counsel from the doomed prophet.

    we have the medicine for mungiki,the kalenjin have it ready for the opportune moment.disperse them to various parts and we will dispose them.

    you are toying with the idea of arresting some kalenjin leaders,mark my words..doom and hopelssness will follow.you are slowly moving to the edge.we know why you think support from some quaters will prevail against us,you now do not believe in europe,you would rather believe in the usa.there is no safety for you.

    even moi will desert you.

    you send the envoys at large out to decieve the world about the true state of things in
    kenya.it did not work out….

    we will never silent no more

    you are constanly talking about peace.

    the moment you step down and aknowledge that you stole the inallienable right of kenyans to select a leader of their choice ,you will know what peace is.
    currently peace is indispensable with justice

    for the time being continue singing that popular song..

    whatever you want to do with the peace efforts it is upto you, we care less no more.

    hold together agents for change,never give up,let no air penetrate you,

  132. Jane says:

    Dear ODMers, what democracy do our ODM brothers and sisters in Kisumu, Eldoret and the greater Central Rift achieve by destroying their livelihoods.

    Take it or leave it but I must tell you these acts of destroying property and lives by ODM supporters is undermining Raila’s and Ruto’s credibility as the EU development commissioner who initially supported ODM angrily said yesterday ” These meetings must stop”. Obama’s popularity in USA is declining as they associate him with Kenya, the USA African affairs official has quit support for ODM. How exactly do the financiers of Kisumu water company and our brothers and sisters employed there feel.

    Please lets stand up for civilisation even as the search for justice continues, a people must be seen to be responsible to add credibility to their leaders.

    All the ODM MPs went to the parliament after being summoned by the President, took their oath of office on Tuesday 15th and signed their contracts according to the rule of law. Their over Ksh. 500,000 salaries and allowances started flowing to their bank accounts.Then they tell us not to go to work from 16th for three days, so who milks the cows, they tell us to close our accounts in a bank that has been giving us loans to grow our small business, not to board buses to work-how do we get to work,economic sanctions on Kenya so where do we export our sugar, tea etc. Get Serious!!. Why didn’t the MPs boycott parliament or refuse to take their oath of office, it was not mandatory!!. why did they go, why did they sign their contracts. have they closed their fat bank accounts, have they burnt their palatial homes, have they withdrawn their children from schools given that most of our children are not going to school, all in solidarity?.
    We are fighting for justice but our MPs are doing us alot of unjustice. Preaching water but drinking wine.
    I have supported ODM since its formation in 2005. but supporting the present ODM demands is tantamount to asking us to commit suicide.

    I fully support Mike.Our national anthem also embraces the spirit of peace and unity.

    Have a rational day.

  133. kanyeka says:

    Jane you will support mike because you come from the same pot and may be or may not after getting the vpee slot. It s your prerogative to support whoever you feel like but will not stop the ODM cause of action even if you supported it since its formation. We know a lot of you by now have crossed over to the bogus government and now are singing a different song this is not amusing at all.
    No one can convince me that he expected calm to prevail regarding the election out come.
    Do you know what made things worse is how publicly they boasted that they will rig this election to favor them?
    What if this problem was sorted out before being announced?

    Jane bwana!! you are taking us back to where we started that’s why we ODMers will not agree with you at all.
    The answer to the questions is that we could look more fool if we protested to the open win of kibaki but here we are talking of arrogance in kibaki side who are eluding to what is in the public domain.
    Don’t think that violence in kisumu affects only the luos the other tribes are and will be affected too. Don’t take it that we embrace looting and destruction of properties. this is caused by the denial to let people demonstrate and express their urger in words.What we are or I am saying is how the situation could be avoided before it erupted.

    The best way the kibakis should do is let people go and express their views without stopping them.

    To you panuaodmk you will not stop us from this just because you like peace more than others try to remember JUSTICE whenever you here the word PEACE.

  134. opande olwal says:

    I am disturbed that a thieving government is condemning looting.I am also disturbed that people are using high sounding words to reflect a simple truth.In my eyes,the moment ECK manipulated the results they stole from the people and in doing that gave the masses a licence to loot and vandalize.There is no difference between the two.Now coming to Hon. Kibaki,he portrays himself as a man of little intelligence which we know he is not.He can not claim ignorance to the fact that these elections were stolen in his favour.. Another simple truth,as long as he occupies office through theft,looting will continue and stability in all its forms will be a far cry.ODM sharpen your arguments and trudge on with the spirited fight to the last man.The government is purely to blame for whats happening in kenya.

  135. rafiq says:

    Jane and Mike, Fast forward January 2011, Status quo maintained. Will you vote or not. Will the computers vote on your behalf. This time the amateurs were caught in full TV glare. Next time it will be more discrete so that you caanot tell. Remember Kibaki could have had a vote of no confidence after referendum but to cool tempers down the ODM team went to the legal democratic way. Thats why the ECK commissioners were appointed single handedly, hence the mess we are in. If nothing is done I promise you able Kenyans will flee the country come the next elections because of fear of violence and injustice. I dont recommend we wait for that time. Lets act now or forever shut up.

    Kibaki thought that once he is sworn in and challenges you with the courts, he will keep you there as he continues to misrule, you will give up and within no time you will dismiss ODMers as a nuisance. Sadly you are being his prey. I pity you! No retreat No surrender. Thats the message from the ground. Actually the leadership wanted to slow things down but the grassroot said Never again.
    So Mike and Jane, prepare for the best, it is yet to come.Kibaki doesnt understand diplomacy.

  137. Amani says:

    First and foremost i condemn the excessive use of force by the police but i also condemn the unnecessary killings of innocent civilians by fellow Wananchi. This is all uncalled for.

    Just thoughts on the way forward:
    1. Congratulations to Marende. I am sure you will do us proud. A vote of no confidence sounds very appealing but many questions come in mind. Can we ODMers garner support from 148MPS? From the voting of speaker i doubt not. A voting of no confidence also sends our MPs home as well. Are the MPs both in ODM and PANUA ready to be sent home packing while they enjoy the 1M+ salary and benefits every month? Only time will tell.

    2. A re-run i think will be great for our nation. Can we afford it? Kenya as a country cannot but again this is the EU and USA come in. Therefore, funding is NOT the issue. However, a question may be raised, how and where will the displaced Kenyan’s vote? It will be argued that they too are Kenyans and have a right to vote.

    3. A re-tally? This remains as the most viable option. Will we be tallying all places including all the constituencies that have been found to have irregularities? If i remember correctly this were 130+. Recently, Frezzi (US lady in Kenya) accused both sides of rigging-How dare she say that we rigged while PANUA are the once who rigged and were caught? Is it TRUE that only a Court Order can allow this? Someone please anwer me. This again only time will tell.

    4. Mass Action-I support those who are bold enough to go the streets. But I personally will not put my life in danger. I am a single mother with two children 1 and 4 years old and i am all they have.

    5. Boycot-ProKibaki Companies…….I am sure you all agree with me that this is Laughable. Hapo Morris alingo’a nanga.

    6. Government of National Unity/Coalition. NO WAY. But again, will our MPS hold on. Let us pray for Agwambo and our key leaders.

    From the analysis above, only two options are viable a Re-Tally and Mass Action.

    In the past i have argued that this battle is for the Rich against the Poor. We the poor are the ones who are fighting for Democracy for the rest of the Country- High and Middle class. God shall repay our Ideologies but i sure pray that the inequality existing in Kenya is eradicated.

    For my brothers and Sisters who will be going to the Streets the next time, I wish you and your family God’s protection.

  139. tnk says:

    Whatever the methods used, the solution is that govt must not be allowed to conduct business as usual and this must be applied externally by international community and we see definite steps by EU as well as internally by ODMers. As Rafiq says, Kibaki does not understand diplomacy.

    We need to paralyze govt functions logistically and economically until a new election is called. ODM needs to put in place an organization structure that will parallel the govt and stop govt from collecting revenues from the six provinces.

    I also think the masses need to be sensitized on hostile media (Daily Nation, Citizen Radio etc) and begin massive and permanent boycotts of these institutions. Lets pick out the institutions one by one, identify suitable and appropriate alternatives and then shut them out permanently. Start with the simple moving up to the more complex economic institutions.

    Jane & Mike,

    Thank you for your divergent comment. However, Mass action must continues till the shameless thief of our basic right Mwai Kibaki give way. He is an unparalled despot since the dawn of 21st Century. I think he has underrated our resolve to reclaim our dignity.
    I am also hoping you are not mere trojan horses in this crucial struggle.

    But more importantly, I must agree with Jane that ODM leaders must implore on their supporters to stop targetting certain communities in their struggle for justice. This will be quite sad and a grave injustice against innocent brothers and sisters. Mwai Kibaki crime is not Kikuyu community crime.

    NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER!

    NO RAILA NO PEACE!

  141. Shaqmaya says:

    Give as a list of their bussiness that we should boycott. Lets not forget Nation Newspapers and Citizen TV, these two media houses were only printing and sending false propaganda on ODM. We must hit these thieves from all angles. Ali should be refered to as Mr Murderer, ODM shoud sue him at the Den Hauge of genocide. Let the blood of the dead haunt him to complete madness or uncurable cancer.

    Why are women,children being killed by arrows , then displaced from their homes
    I now have greatest contempt with rutos ,kosgeys and ntimamas of this world.
    One thing i respect AMOLLO and his people is at least they respect sanctity of life. At least they loot, demonstrate but leave people to live another day.

    With all due respect allow me to say when MOI ruled for almost two decades who maimed and killed kalenjins,nandis women and children.

    For all rutos and kosgeys out there watch out there is always tomorrow.

    BALALAS,RUTOS ,KIBAKIS,AMOLLOS will be in the next business class headed oversees while everybody will be try to fight for your own survival .

    Demonstrate, loot, boycott businesses BUT PLEASE TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS TO STOP THE KILLINGS.

    Power clique has badly messed up the country

    Published on January 18, 2008, 12:00 am

    By Nancy Mburu

    A colleague had a chilling experience. A boy, 14, who is her neighbour, stabbed her daughter, 11.

    The woman, too, shocked confronted the boy’s parents, who were perplexed by their son’s behaviour.

    The children are from two communities that have been engaged in violent clashes following discredited presidential election results.

    This is how far we have taken this thing. Politics is a poisoned chalice. The hate propaganda we sowed prior to the General Election has yielded fruits.

    Instead of watching the grandstanding and tribal chauvinism with wry amusement, we have become active participants.

    The Church, civil society, scholars and the legal fraternity are split by ethnic-inspired politics. We have become suspicious of each other. All we care about is tribe and political party.

    I hate to imagine that I might lose friends simply because they are from the ‘enemy’ tribes. I hate to imagine I might start looking at Chirchir, who washes my car differently. Yet I trust Chirchir, who is polite to a fault, with money more than my Kikuyu brothers. I hate to imagine that I will no longer revel in those theme nights with friends simply because they are from other communities.

    We were duped. Politicians exploited tribal biases, working them to a feverish pitch, resulting in mayhem.

    That is why we need mass action of olive branches, lest we slip into the doldrums of a failed State.

    But then there is a cry for justice and truth. And what is that truth and justice? It is said violence would still have erupted even if another leader had been declared winner.

    There has to be a deeper reason some communities feel disenchanted to gang against another.

    It all points to the much-touted historical injustices. For instance, why do other communities feel the Kikuyu dominate the economy? Is it because the community members are aggressive in business and owning property in any part of the country? And is it because the Kikuyu are accused of not being accommodating?

    I am yet to see a Luo or a Kalenjin who owns property or a successful business in Kiambu, Murang’a or Nyeri.

    I also get dismayed when I hear Kikuyus make derogatory remarks about other communities, and insinuate that their language and way of life are superior. Yet I learnt in linguistics class that no language is inferior. If its speakers can express themselves and communicate effectively, then the language is complete, no matter how ‘unpleasant’ it sounds.

    Governments have perfected the art of nepotism. When Kenyans voted for Kibaki in 2002, they expected radical change. But disillusionment soon set in. We began hearing reports that some regions received more resources than others, and that the President and cronies had rewarded their kin and relatives with plum Government and parastatal jobs.

    The Government has failed us miserably, by creating the impression that a community has to have its own in the presidency so they can get a share of the national cake. Given that we are 42 tribes and the Kikuyu and Kalenjin have served their tenures, we have 40 tribes to go.

    If each tribe served a term, it would take 400 years for the presidency to go round. Is this how long it will take us to realise the democracy of tribal equality?

    We have to come up with a less myopic solution. We need radical change, to ensure there is equality and justice, such that never again, would a community be punished for the sins of a power elite clique.

    We need laws that fuse merit, tribal balance and affirmative action, so that nobody, in any corner of the country, will ever feel left out again.

    We need laws that ensure anybody can live and own property anywhere without intimidation. We need laws that fuse capitalism and communism, to address the glaring gap between the rich and the poor.

    Why we must stop killing our Brothers and Sisters.

    1. Human life is very sacred and the blood of any person will haunt each and everyone of us who has participated in the killing. That i believe.

    2. With all the killings by people believed to be ODM supporters and evacuating people from their homes this will not go well for an ODM government.

    3. If our politicians were in anyway involved in inciting those who are killing (I have a hunch some did it behind our president Agwambo) this will not go very well even if we are to make the next government.

    4. Those calling for the killing of this person or the other should try and direct their anger in a more diplomatic way.

    The west is celebrating and confirming what a low IQ we have. We should demonstrate BUT NOT KILL.

  147. sirorei says:

    kibaki is not serious with dialogue.

    by sending kalonzo he shows lack of commitment.

    i propose that ODM send him an equally lesser team.

    RAILA Rutto ,balala ,NGILU should come to the table where KIBAKI AND HIS TEAM ARE PRESENT

    send NGILU,ORENGO, SALLY KOSGEI,ANYANG NYONGO,chaired by ngilu.

    do not rubbish the move but give them such a team as this.to show your commitment for dialogue

  149. tnk says:

    with every passing day, the chasm grows wider and avenues for reconciliation become more difficult.

    kenyans up till now have generally been willing to reason and debate with each other. but at this point we have to face it, those masses on the ground are well informed and are not going to accept being lied to either by the MP for othaya and his supporters or by the ODM pentagon. they need to see clear and practical solutions to the current crisis. every kenyan has been lied to and (ab)used by previous governments but this time there is a big difference because the ultimate tool for correcting the political elite has been debased and rendered meaningless. there is no way any leader can go out to calm those masses down without a concrete action plan that both Raila and Kibaki have consented to. a plan that charts a speedy road to recovery starting with comprehensively addressing the flawed elections. As long as this issue is not addressed, then all other efforts will either be unsuccessful or hard to push through and no amount of government force will enforce this. the longer the MP for othaya and his group continues to bury its head in the sand, the worse it gets.

    the best any leader can do under the circumstances is to reach out to the vigilantes/militia and other enraged mobs operating everywhere right now and request them to grant and possibly assist in the safe passage of “unwanted” members in their communities to “safer areas” until such a time that justice, peace and amicable resolution has been reached. At the same time any government atrocity such as those GSU killings need to stop as well. these militia numbers are growing everyday and this is a sure recipe for long lasting disaster, its beyond belief that Kibaki is oblivious to this.

    for a sideshow check out this continued govt deceit

    hey guys, WE NEED JUSTICE there is no doubt about that. BUT we need TO FIND OUR A WAY OF STOPPING THE ETHNIC VIOLENCE. We are ODM supporters but we need some sane approach towards this issue. We should tell our ODM supporters down in the villages not to kill; that is not democracy for God’s sake. You see, if our demonstration are peaceful, let the Michuki boys kill us for our peaceful demonstration and not to find excuse that because we are killing others. Martin Luther Jr, Mahtma Gandhi did not conceive democracy that way. We have to bring sanity in our quaest for justice. Let the violence stop, otherwise the more people are killed the more blame will come upo ODM and the more favour we loose in the public eye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi bloggers

    I have issues to bring to your attention after reading what the bloggers are saying.
    First Omutto welcome back and i hope u will share with us your experience in the cell.Secondly i like to thank the ODM for releasing the true picture of how our results were stolen in yesterdays papers KUDOS. Thirdly my fellow Kenyans let usnot be bothered much by Jane a.k.a Mike for for his fruitless antics we know this is a govt ploy to start bringing confusion and disagreements in this forum because they have seen its power and we shall not be cowed. Fouthly let us face the reality of the clashes that are taking place especially in R.valley although i dont advocate for people being chased from there land we must analyse the genesis of this problem so lend me your ears fellow Kenyans when Kenyatta became president he dished out large parcels of land to the Kikuyu communities some were bought by the GEMA association then apparently the Kikuyu leadership saw Kalenjin as backward society and this brought about anger in them and also how there leader then then Moi was being treated the Kalenjin complained to Moi but he told them there time will come and it did but more importantly the seed of hate towards Kikuyu community which then always thought they are intellectually superior to the “herders” was sown along time ago. Kibaki didn’t help much after 2002 by sacking members of the Kalenjin to pave way for more GEMA people to be given plum govt . jobs this again raised the emotions now of the younger Generation of the Kalenjin and we are seeing the outcome. Fifth point is about Luo and Kikuyu feud for this two it is legendary it started by Jaramogi starting the clarion call for Kenyatta to be released from jail u know he even forfeited taking leadership of the country and gave it to Kenyatta how did the Kenyatta leadership repay that by driving Odinga out of Kanu and even in 1969 killing people in Kisumu fast forward to 2002 Raila assist Kibaki and Kibaki undermines Raila and the boiling point reached when he stole the elections and now killing again in Kisumu so we have a totally new generation that is experiencing what they were told by there fathers that is why you have this renewed hatred. As a kikuyu i know it will e our duty as a new generation to heal this wounds and try to bring sanity to our country. RAO you won the election fair and square i didn’t vote for you in JUJA because you are a Luo but because you offered on the table what i needed devolution and we will fight for it . So Kenyans let us brace our selves to liberate his country from people like Kibaki and Michuki who have 1960’s hangovers like i said before elections in this forum and even now iam repeating “IF YOU GO TO NAKUMATT MERU WOULDN’T YOU FIND THAT THE PRICE OF MILK AND BREAD IS THE SAME AS NAKUMATT KISUMU OR THE AMERU PEOPLE BUYS THERE’S AT A CHEAPER PRICE ?” so if we have problems it affects all kenyans not just certain communities.

    I will never support an armed insurgency – the idea of killing our way to power is abhorent. I have come across many AFrican refugess here in the diaspora and it is heartbreaking.

    I will keep preaching it until this blog closes, but targeting Kikuyus specifically, is barbaric and does not help the cause of creating a Kenya. So as we fight for justice in our own ways we must call on our leaders to show the way by visiting areas like RV and calming tempers.

  159. faddie says:

    i want to agree with kamau and otsiatso.pliz let’s not be too emotional about all this.we are all brothers and sisters and remember the ordinary PNU supporter didn’t know that someone was rigging the elections.so why would you want to kill him?it is like you being convited of burning those people in a kiambaa church just because you are an ODMer.
    how would you feel if you went to jail for an offence you never committed?
    so please fellas,don’t met injustice on a brother or sister who is also suffering the same injustices if not more.after all the michukis,karumes,kimunyas,karuas,uhurus,mungatanas and the likes have nothing to lose if you clobber your neighbour to death.
    remember the same person you are killing is the only one who can wake up deep in the night to answer to your distress call when raiders or thieves strike.he may be the only one who can help you when your husband,brother or father falls ill deep in the night.he is most llikely to be the one to escort you to the hospital when your wife begins labour pains past midnight.am sure none of the bigwigs would be there at that time.
    and for heavens sake,please before you lift your hand to strike them with whatever weapon,take two seconds and ask yourself what it is that you have against them.do they have a different blood from yours just because they voted for PNU?
    remember that on 27th as you lined up on the queau,you didn’t know who the person behind or ahead of you was going to vote for.there were people on that queau who were voting for PNU.they were not your enemies then and i believe they shouldn’t be now.they had a right to vote the way they did just like you and i.so stop blaming them for this mess.
    let’s all find a way of dealing with this fiasco in a sober and brotherly manner let’s we tear this country apart.coz when the monster that is africa’s curse eventually visits us,it will maul all of us regardlessof your tribe or which party you voted for.
    and by the way,please let us not mess this blog by expressing our tribal emotions here.it won’t help anyone.i know we are all hurting but as one once said:
    “ANGER IS SO GOOD A THING ,YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO LOSE IT”

  160. Mike Okello says:

    Let us preach Peace in all the corners of this country, We are tearing apart. I mean, does it matter who the president is, than it matters whether i am at peace with my neighbor.

    Isn’t it strange that even University Graduates were involved in torching houses in Rift Valley, Doesn’t learning change our thought patterns and our values.

    Now Mungiki (OUTLAWED) seems to be heard calling shorts in parts of Eastlands in Nairobi, Do we really want to make Eastlands a battle field when we know there are livelihoods in such estates.

    Aren’t we guilty to be posting material that is promoting hatred in this site, when others are desperately looking for peace. Are we Kenyans of Good Faith.

    Isn’t a shame that Economic boycott can be mentioned by an adult. and he still maintains his following after that?

    If His Excellency the president, EBS, CGH, Hon. Mwai Kibaki, MP, was rigged out by ODM Eventually (because there seems to have been rigging and counter rigging), would there have been anything to BOYCOTT, and would there be fighting going on… I wish Raila got it, for peace sake!

    Isn’t it Unfair that while some are busy posting stuff meant to fuel violence in the comforts of their office seats, others are busy dying in slums fighting for the same person?

  161. Jane says:

    Thanks to the Otsiatso, Mike and Karanja’s.

    If we had more persons of your calibre in ODM ranks all this destructive mayhem in Some parts of the Rift Valley, Kisumu, Kibera, Mathare would have been scaled down.

    I read with alot of sadness, in Kalenjin.net that farmers in North Rift have not been able to take maize deliveries to National cereals board, milk to kcc, receive fertilizer , harvest, etc as roads are blocked by hooligans, a farmer in rongo? had their sugarcane burnt, etc, etc in the name of protesting for democracy. What do these people who exercised their constitutional and democratic right to vote have to do with all the mayhem?

    These same hooligans will turn to clobbering the very people who are inciting them to violence once whatever supplies they have are exhausted.

    Let’s not incite others to move us backwards economically in the name of democracy!!

  162. Chepkwony(Kericho) says:

    Hi Bloggers;
    Some kenyans may be ignorant of the path our leaders have been taking us through. Seed of tribal hatred has been planted from the day we gained independence hence one tribe feels more superior than others. The solution to this problem is for all ‘big’ tribes to shed off their superiority mentality and acknowledge that Kenya belongs to all 42 tribes where none is more equal than the other. When one begins to label other tribes as lesser beings, or good for nothing fellows, we shall have a problem. You cannot refer to a Luo as a “fish eating thick fellow” and expect him/her to still remain your good neighbour. Neither can you label a kalenjin as a “crass nomad herder” as far as modern ecomomic principles are concerned and expect him/her to continue supporting and protecting your efforts in economic prosperity. Unless we all watch what we spew out of our mouths, we shall never be able to co-exist as good neighbours. We should learn to respect people from tribes other than ours if we need to bond this country together. A Pokomo should stand an equal chance of being the president fo Kenya as a Kikuyu or a Luo or a Kalenjin. Until this happens, we shall only be pretending to be solving our internal problems by nominating politicians on a round table talk of ending post election violence. Peace may appear to have been attained but deep seated hatred shall continue to grow.
    Please dear Kenyans, whether you stole, rigged, was rigged out, robbed or otherwise, let’s cultivate a more civil way of treating each other if you want to live anywhere in the corner of this country, otherwise, be prepared to be evicted by those whom you refer with words that stir further hatred. REMEMBER WORDS HURT MORE THAN SHARP OBJECT and THEIR WOUND IS DIFFICULT TO HEAL

  163. Nick says:

    Jane,
    The people taking us backward economically are the people who rigged the election.That is what you need to understand.These are people who think that only their small clique and their tribe need to advance.They are people who think that they should lead at whatever cost even if their kinsmen die.There are times in life when you need to go backwards in order to advance further.Career is one example and quest for democracy is another.These are those times where even if it means going backwards, let it be.Mozambique went through the same route.Otsiaso the idea of killing your way to power makes you sick but remember PNU also killed their way to power.They killed our dreams and aspirations.They wanted to remain in power at whatever cost even if their people died.Everyone knows well that Raila was going to be a fair president.Can the same be said of Kibaki who only is fair to his tribe?If people will die will die in our quest for democracy,me being one of then because am not superhuman, let it be because the long term benefits will far outweigh the costs. people will say that it is the poor who suffer while our leaders live in luxury, well that is the harsh reality of leadership.Yasser arafat never went to the streets,Osama never fights the americans in America and even Gerry Adams the Sinn Fein leader was never in the frontline inthe nothern ireland war.Raila,Ruto Mudavadi,Balala and the rest of pentagon you dont need to be on the frontline because we will represent you.

  164. mumias says:

    Those people constantly talking about reconciliation and that we should just leave in peace as we have done are really missing vital points. Without a feeling of justice do you think the displaced people will now be welcome back to their homes and will they just say tusameane and forget! Please, you forget that every living organisation has said the results were flawed so how do you expect these people to accept the status quo when they believe they were robed at the polls!
    Even in South africa they had to acertain the truth before they made strides to forgive. Even in confessions, we have to first confess our sins before God truly forgives us, we dont just say “God let us move on now as what has happened has happened!!”

  165. charles says:

    hi
    admin.please take your time to go through some of the articles that are being sent by bloggers.articles that promote tribal hatred and other negative attitude should never be put through in this forum.we must keep this forum very clean and give it due respect that befits The people’s President RAO..ODM and RAO himself stands for peace,love,unity,justice,equality and very many vitues that take care for all kenyans.
    otherwise am very happy,,,the mass action was largely successful and we must make the one on thursday a big success.
    let us tell our people not to avoid violence…

    i began ecinomic boycott yesterday…..in my house everybody knows that……..NO RAILA…….NO CITI HOPPA…..NO RAILA……NO BROOKSIDE MILK

    i meant,………………..let us tell our people to AVOID VIOLENCE

  167. Mike Okello says:

    Let us not promote hatred between various tribes, we will still be in Kenya even when Hon. RAILA becomes president, He himself is a promoter of Peace, and i doubt that he would identify with some of the sentiments coming through this blog.Lets us live like brothers regardless of what the leaders do. Let us refuse to be dancing the tune of the leaders we support, it doesn’t help to be a sycophant.

    For example, Hon Raila did not support economic boycott, let us not overstretch the course for justice. People do not NECESSARILY have to die for this crisis to be sorted out. the sanctity of life can still be flagged out as paramount.

    Let us stop, and i mean stop stirring emotions in a bid to conspire to destroy this country, we do not need to. Let us seek peace and pursue, EVEN WHEN JUSTICE IS DELAYED, If all the members of this site were peacemakers (a kind wish), then we would not have the posts i am reading about threats of mass destruction of property. The magnitude of damages that have to take place for justice sake can be as minimal as possible, IFF, the middle class (who do not actually go to streets but they talk about it on the blog) and the Upper Class (who do not read or post on the blog, but they call the shots), and the low class (who always answer the call to mass action and die poor in the streets) can agree to peace during the quest for justice.

    I rest my case, and i hope someone is reading this.

    Dear ODM,
    Its time again for me to add my voice to a cause that will lead to finding permanent solutions to electoral fraud.This is to the Members of The National Assembly.Its time for all of you to work and earn your keep,starting with a draft Bill that makes electoral Fraud a Treasonable Offence. Once you bring it to the flour of the House and voting is done,let us know who voted against it; as a matter of Public interest.While President Kibaki continues with his First Term in Office,let him sign it as Law.

    It’s Perception Stupid!

    Hi blogers
    The reason ODM won the election was the promis to devolve resources and power.This would have enabled people at the local level to make their own decesions.This was the hope that people voted for.They stood in line in order to board the Orange bus.Unknown to them ,the vehicle had been hijacked by PNU and ODM-K.
    The real consequences are yet to be felt when the newly appointed ministers change the various officials currently serving you directly,in order to satisfy theiir financiers past 2002 and future 2012.Then you will realize why Kenyans hit the CNN& BBC headlines on new year ‘s eve.They will introduce the “Frog Stew Theory”…i.e if you throw a frog into boiling water it will jump out,but if you put it in cool water and boil it gradually it will die without noticing .
    I still dont understand why they would not announce the clear winner of the election is it because in Africa you cant loose and election that you organized?
    Are we saying Kenya is peace full because it’s inhabitants would not take up arms and defend their own constitution?…How is that defined as peace!!
    So there are some people who merely wanted to remove a Dictator just to replace him!We must have been blind when we voted in 2002. Or was is the lesser of two evils!
    I have always surported SPLA for fighting for the freedom of their land.Self determination is a fundamental freedom. Ladies and gentlemen we can expect the rest of the world to put so much pressure on our dictatorship but the ultimate test would be our capacity to remove the tumor in our own systems.And thats why you need an armed wing.When the pentagon goes for Resistance with violence it cant work on its own unless there is armed surport.Why else would PNU have an armed wing Led by Breg. Ali.

  173. Ismael says:

    If one EYE will stop you from going to heaven, you better remove it and go to heaven without any blamishes. The same applies to kenya, if a few people / tribe /clan want to stop us from enjoying our democratic right, then we have no choice but to ask them out of their dream land.

    As it is in kenya now, you either deal with people with dignity or face the wrath.

    And please we do not need sympathizers here. The job has to be done. RAO is only a tip of the iceberg. We the people are down under and supporting him. He is the mirror of the current society.

    And for PNU, in life if you are trying too hard to convince people that you are right, then know that you have lost touch with the reality.

    have read your blogs severally it looks like you have an ingrined hatred for a community.

    Bro look deep inside your self and realise that Kenya is not private property
    Reedeem your mind before its too late
    look as an expatriate living in Kenya i have seen the living patterns of different commnunities and i am sorry to note that i dont understand why a majority of the poorest living in slums are from one tribe.

    have documented and followed families slum families over time and seen some changing to better places and others remaining there.

    The whole point is there is need for de-slumization of minds in some of this people and going by the writtings on this blog you can see why no wonder its all in the mind

    Brother Yohaness,
    I too rose from the slum. On the voting day, i left my car and walked for ten Kilometers thru the Kibera Slum. On my way there I was hit by the stench, that otherwise formed part of my life for 19 years, I crossed rivulets of water mixed with urine and sukuma wiki water, I saw toilets that had gaping holes in them and the occupants did not mind. Its as if time had stood still in this slums.
    About hatred for one community, – well, my wife is from muranga. I have a wife and relatives from the opposite divide, iam now hosting internal refugees in my house, and to correct you, i have never made reference to any tribe in any of my articles.
    De-slumization – Big word and it would look good in those reports sent to the UN. These are the reports that you send to the rich to fight the poor. You now treat slums as endangered species. Saved for posterity to show the future rich generation, labs to test your medicine. For me there are only too tribes in Kenya.The Rich and the poor. You see people in the Slums live by dreams……dreams that their children will become pilots, dreams of a better healthcare, dreams of fresh water, dreams of better working conditions…..Dreams that even Raila Odinga cannot fulfil……….BUT THE WORST THING THAT HAPPENED ON DEC 27TH KIBAKI AND HIS CRONIES STOLE THIS DREAMS. NOW THEY HAVE TO LIVE THE NIGHTMARE.
    Remember Jesus said that the “the poor will always be there.” For fourty years succesive governements have been fighting poverty.- THEY HAVE failed. Why not fight the Wealthy. Do you have the nerve………

    I continue to do my part………..a volunteer since 1987 in an humanitarian orgn, i have fought and saved lives for this country most notably during the August bombing of the US Embassy. I continue to pay my taxes in time.I have never participated in or conduct a hate speech. All am saying is that Kibaki must STEP DOWN FOR THE LEGIT PRESIDENT- RAILA AMOLLO ODINGA.

    A muzzled press complains of intimidation and continues to profit from adverts of PNU. Chocking on their own saliva ? Its in moments like these i remember Hilary Ngweno – WEEKLY REVIEW, Financial time. But now we have a new kid on the block. JEFF KOINANGE – Rejected internationally. Recycled at home.

    There have been may calls for peace and prayer,

    I ask, praying about what? Unless it is about kibaki and his gang of ‘election thieves’ come to their senses and step aside. otherwise praying for peace without justice is a waste of time. God is just, let us remember
