     It is unfortunate how FIDA and other organizations are ready to fight for their own and when it is politicians on the defennce for their alledged crimes they through their whole weight against presurizing them to step aside.

  • Saki

    What about Kerubo? What does FIDA have to say about her?

  • Aganira

    i think society is quick to judge women and you know what its realy unfortunate. yes kerubo has rights but so does baraza. it is true that the incident occured but the media is overdoing it. maybe there people taking advantage of kerubo. my take is let the investigations be done ..before we judge.

  • Rev Mruttu

    FIDA are you there for the oppressed women like Kerubo or the mighty like Baraza. its unfortunately that instead of being neutral to this case your supporting the mighty….

    Security firms should employ individuals with basic knowledge and also give them refreshers courses on daily life situations that would include identifying our national leaders. While it sounds ‘good’ that there is heightened security surveillance especially in Nairobi, we should not expose our leaders to ridicule and unnecessary actions. Just imagine for a moment a guard screening Kibaki, Raila, Marende, Kalonzo, Mutunga, Uhuru or even Iteere? What would he/ she be trying to achieve or establish? Do u expect any of these leaders to be carrying a grenade? As much as it is “Alshabaab time” we must accord our leaders the respect they deserve and this should not be negotiable and that’s why the public pays lots of money for their security details.

      What baldadash!!!! No one is above the law…NO ONE!!! Identifying our national leaders??? They are there to serve us, yes serve us! Even Kibaki, Raila etc are employed by Kenyans. So who should recognize who?
      P.s: We don’t need a culture of human worship, ‘yes boss’ attitude. There are people who are more important & earn more money than the DCJ who visit Village Market every other day & they get screened…every other day, foreigners included some of whom may be dignitaries.
      If they understand the need for security checks, why can’t a local Kenyan get that?

      And why can’t a ‘leader’ carry a grenade? unless they are still objects any human being can commit evil. If anything, a ‘VIP’ may even take advantage (if they are evil/terrorists) of their position to commit a crime.
      Leaders need to accord respect, to all members of society-rich or poor because these public, including Morara, pay their salaries. Leaders should be worth the salt that the common wananchi pay them for. Besides, isn’t respect earned?!!

        I insist that we need some level of decorum to be accorded to our leaders because we have trusted them literally with our lives. it is not a question of how much you earn but the office you hold. any dick tom and harry purporting to be a security guard should not frisk our leaders just because there is alshabaab threat! and in any case why do we want to trust these guards more than our national leaders?

    I feel sad for an organisation, FIDA, whose purpose was to defend the rights of women.  This organ was formed when women were oppressed by the mighty and powerful.  Now that the accused is one of their own, they want to look the other way.  What about Kerubo, a woman, who is supposed to be defended from the mighty and powerful ( Ms Baraza ) ?  Isnt FIDA expected to Kerubo’s rights under FIDA ?  or she is inconsequential ?

    Heloo !  Any women in here !  Comment please !

    • Daniella

      Well said!!!

    • Miganphyl

       You forgot one thing power is addictive irregardless of gender or belief and  that is what FIDA has just shown.Clearly protecting their interests

    • Miganphyl

       In addition FIDA should be supporting the weaker woman -Kerubo not the lady who ‘knows  and  supposedly  upholds the law’

    Fellow Kenyans we will not get rid
    of corruption if our leaders demand respect from the people they are supposed
    to serve. It is known all over the world that a junior person will in most
    cases respect his/her superior. Ms Baraza like any other person in office
    whether public or private has internal and external customers. Internal are your
    co-workers and external are outsiders whom you interact with either in your
    office or outside your work place. A person in a higher position like that of
    Ms Baraza is expected to show his/her leadership qualities not only in the
    office but also in public.

    Commenting on what Nyakenda said
    about leaders like the President etc. we know that all citizens respect their
    leaders and this also should apply to leaders respecting all citizens they
    lead. If President Kibaki had to go to that upper- market, prior arrangement
    would have been made. Mr. Nyakenda it seems you do not have any knowledge at
    all on how security personnel works first you do not take things for granted.
    How many Kenyans know Dr. Mutanga who was appointed Chief Justice just last
    year. What if an imposter from Al Shabaab or Al-Qaeda who looks like Dr.
    Mutunga or Ms Baraza shows up at the entrance to the mall would you let him/her
    in? These are the kind of loop holes you have to seal if you are in that
    position. What you see on TV is not the same as what you see in real life.

    Colonialist left us with legacy
    which will take years to erase we were ruled with heavy hands and some of our
    leaders apply that to our own people. In the west Ms Baraza would have gone to
    the security desk and ask the security staff if they wanted to check her bag and
    do body search. If there was disagreement, she should have requested to speak with
    their supervisor or manager and not to engage in unnecessary arguments with
    junior staff she failed to do that. Ask any driver in Kenya who has the right
    of way on public roads they will tell you the vehicle. While in the west it is
    the pedestrian who has the right of way. Ritho it seems you are worked up but
    please take it easy.

  • fida fida fida !!!!!!!!!! if it was a man who did that  maingi and her fida coud be demostrating. wanawake wote ni sawa lakini wengine ni sawa kuliko wengine

  • FIDA would rather enjoy the prestige of having one of their own working in high government places than the justice of a female security officer.
    I was thinking of voting for Martha Karua but that would be enabling FIDA and thats the last thing I want to do. I care for Kenyan families.

  • It is a well-known Kenyan fact that our leaders misuse their privileges to even transport drugs wherever they want since it is assumed they are immune to security searches. So don’t give us that crap about humiliating our leaders. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW!
