    Exactly what we did not need! another round of ODM/PNU crap that led us where were are today.We all remember the childish/reckless behavior of this Namwamba during the swearing in ceremony designed to cause as much shame to a bleeding nation as possible.This is my take Namwamba- you have benefited for four years the fruits of the “blood of many Kenyans who died/and are still IDPS”. Finish the last year and rejoice.If you feel Ruto-Sang-Uhuru-Muthaura are the ones who caused/responsible for the violence, then you should be grateful-they allowed your party to “share the mkate”. In fact if may please you the four can go to the Hague and stay there never to return if that will help you and you/r party/country.This is about justice for the four-the honor of a nation and its people who have without shame sat and presented as sacrifice four INNOCENT KENYANS for their own sins.The guilt of the nation is so much that we all seek an object to attach the guilty hoping that that cleanses our responsibility.We are all cowards who when time came could not shout and say -WAIT A MINUTE-THAT IS NOT WHAT HAPPENED-WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED-WE LIVE/LIVED HERE WHEN IT HAPPENED.What irony/shame that what caused the violence first time should extend to HOW TO CAUSE VIOLENCE/INJUSTICE TO THE FOUR AND THEIR INNOCENT FAMILIES.When will we ever learn?  

    • Aluko

      Francis, I think you are very wrong. We are where we are today, because there is a clique in Kenya that believes that our laws should be applied selectively. In 2007, when Kenyans begged that there be fairness in selection of election commisioners, this clique refused to listen. Now, even after precedences have been set, they refuse to listen. Uhuru and Muthaura have been charged with crimes against humanity. Their case is weightier that murder case which, according to our laws, requires that the accused, although presumed innocent until proven guilty, be locked up without bail until his case is determined. If in the past, people have been asked to step aside after being charged, what is so special about this case? Why do people close to Kibaki believe that the laws that compelled Ruto, Koskey and others to step aside should not apply to them?

      • Nanimimi

        why did ODM agree to go to an election knowing in mind the commission was flawed? please note am no PNU supporter. but their hunger for power just like PNU was so evident. they could not say NO proper commission No elections? 

        • geofry

          Very sensible in deed. You have faith in an institution and when you fail you coin excuses then plunge the nation into chaos. Today, the same people are referring us to some agreement of 2008. Sincerely speaking, was Kibaki expected to wait for Raila to arrive from his foreign trip so that they talk about it? In this matter action is required by monday. For those who think this matter is about Uhuru and Ruto alone had better think twice. These are leaders with considerable clout in this country. You can’t dismiss them so casually. What do you do with the masses behind them?
          Therefore the likes of Namwamba should learn to rispect the presidency at least.

      • Matunday

        Yaap. You are right. There are 2 rules out there. Wetangula has just been reinstated (albeit wrongly) after stepping aside for investigations, Kosgey is out due to court case, Ruto resigned, Kimunya, etc. The list is long. I don’t understand why these 2 won’t resign or step aside whatever the word is.

    • Squidz

      We are where we are because some greedy old man refused to go home, ALITAKA PENSION! WE KEEP BLAMING RAILA FOR REFUSING TO ACCEPT DEFEAT AND FORGET TO SAY THAT KIBAKI TOO SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT TWICE ABOUT STEALING!!!

  • lm

    who the f%$#@ is this amina? and what does she mean stand by? yet she isalready in the thick of it eating as MP? is this standing by? and who is taking charge of what? isnt kibaki still prezo? my God this leadres! and you know this is incitment, she must be arrested. what does she mean? is uhuru the only kenyan?

        I am suddenly getting the feeling,that we may end up having mass action as that seen in Egypt,
        this time around for the removal of the excutive,Let the courts do their jobs,in any Democratic
        society the suspects are auttomaticaly barred from holding Public offices,They should be removed
        immediately for the safety of all other peaceful Kenyans

  • baraza

    New kenya.my learned   friends, use the constitution stop making noise .“Section 137 (1) of the Constitution is equivocal on the qualifications for nomination of a presidential candidate; one must be a citizen by birth, qualifies to stand for election as MP, is nominated by a political party or is an independent candidate; and is nominated by not fewer than 2,000 voters from each of a majority of the counties…
    · A person is not qualified for nomination as a presidential candidate if he/she owes allegiance to a foreign State or is public officer, acting in any State or other public office. The Constitution further elaborates in Section 99 (2), (3) and Section 193 (2) (3) that even if a person has been convicted of any crime and imprisoned for a period of over six months but has not exhausted all possibilities of appeal or review of the sentence or decision, he/she cannot be disqualified from vying for a seat in Parliament, County government or presidency…
    · Therefore, the Minister for Constitutional Affairs, Mr. Mutula Kilonzo, is utterly wrong, is misleading the public and advancing narrow parochial interests by deliberately misinterpreting the Constitution to insist that any of the 4 accused Kenyans cannot vie for any positions in the coming General Election or that after charges are confirmed they must step down from their public offices…
    · The Constitution is clear in Article 79 that only the Independent Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission is mandated to ensure compliance and enforcement of Chapter Six on issues relating to leadership and integrity. Additionally, for this independent commission to do so, Parliament must enact legislation establishing procedures and mechanisms for the effective administration of this Chapter as per Article 80 (a, c and d)…

    • Wanjiku

      I appreciate your thinking but how,if one of them vies and wins  any post conduct his duty as they will be needed at thae Hague.It wont be good to have a president who has to be on duty but as the same time going to hague.

  • geofry

    The very same people who plunged this country into chaos and untold suffering are at it again. The reasons ODM legislators led by uncivil Namwamba and Shebesh is a sure way to fun more chaos. This legislators questioning an executive decision reached by a sworn commander in chief of the defence forces of the republic of Kenya amounts to disrespect. Kenyans are keenly watching and listening to careless and childish utterances by some of it’s leafers.
    I expect such leaders to talk conciously of the need to unite this country. Mr. Namwamba, kindly read the mood of the country before making inflamatory statements. Mr. Kibaki was sworn in as the Head of State. He therefore remains so until his term expires and hereto remains a pillar and symbol of peace.
    This country is not in any way run by two heads of state. Therefore if ODM feels not satisfied with the way Kibaki is running the goverment, then all they need to do is to quit this coalition. Option two is for them to take a motion no confidence on the president to parliament.
    Otherwise careless utterances can no longer be acceptable to the rest of Kenyans. Over to you Mr. Kibunjia.

    • Salim

      Geofry: First of all, mind your grammar, which, to say the least, is horrible. In this ICT age, remember to always spell-check your contributions. Also, mind the syntax and lexis (refer to your teacher of English if lost).
      It’s all too clear that the ICC are zeroing in on a particular big fish, and you are naive not to see this. How can ODM quit yet the world knows they won the election? Kibaki sworn in as head of state? DID HE WIN?
      Ati mood of the country? Mood of a REGION? Wacha after the next poll, ndiyo ICC itachacha.

      • geofry

        Good! You got the point all the same. If the wording and grammar is that horrible, i don’t understand how you still went ahead and reacted to my piece. However, when hell breaks loose in this country even your very good syntax and lexis will disappear to thin air. The only word that will remain in you is REFUGEE. You will forget about ODM, RAILA, NAMWAMBA, etc.

        • YOU SEEM TO BE SO BITTER RELAX THIS IS NOT ABOUT ODM AND RAILA IT’S ABOUT KENYA YOU AND ME; WE(KENYA) HAVE A FUTURE RIGHT?

        • Salim

          No hell will ever break in Kenya, there will be no more election cheats. Also, disappear “into”, not “to”. I am marking every word you write. For your reply, you get 17/40. You can do better, surely

            Thank you Mr. Excellence.

        • Anonymous

          I think geofry is completely missing the point. Please be informed that Kenya belongs to us all. We are not going anywhere. REFUGEE? Count me out. I will remain in Kenya. What we kenyans are saying is that we will not let Ruto and Kenyatta achieve their selfish mission in Kenya: THAT IF THEY FALL, THEY SHALL FALL DOWN WITH THE WHOLE OF KENYA. They have been identified as ICC candidates. Let them argue their way out. If they are innocent, only time will vindicate them. They are accused of very heavy charges . What is this urgency about them becoming president of Kenya.They need to clear themselves first before coming to ask for votes. There is no shortcut to this. 

          • geofry

        it is the dispute on who won that plunged the country into the mess we are in now. To run away from that reality we have successfully scapegoated four gentlemen so that all the sins that gave rise to IDPS are loaded unto them. On the basis of this, the signing of national accord to me was the biggest fraud ever committed in this country if really  we want to believe that the violence was because of the four men and whatever is going on in the media is to believe. To me we reduced an election into a tribal competition, mismanaged it and to very competitors fought over the mess resulting in the worst disaster ever in the country. The future is let the law guides us in managing election otherwise we shall continue finding scapegoats to carry our sins. 

      • Pratt

        You are being naive pal. You dont need to insult people to get your way. As long as you get what the fellow says, you need not attempt humiliation, its immoral and outright bad faith. ODM didnt win the election at all, they only used Kibaki’s midness to mislead and set the country ablaze. How did they win anyway? They are masters of deceit pal! And why do you have to live in the past for so long? This is election year! Cant they prove us wrong this time round? Read their deception in one of my articles above. You are damn wrong!

    • I THINK PNU IS ALSO INCITING KENYANS BY CLAIMING THAT SOME POLITICIANS INFLUNCED ICC TO CONFIRM CHARGES AGAISNT RUTO AND UHURU…..THEY ARE USING ICC DECISIONS TO SWAY PEOPLE POLITICALLY 

    • Squidz

      Has your president ever read the moods of the nation??? Do not accuse Hon. Namwamba of disrespect and out of touch with the moods on the ground. We all know that the president is in charge of this country and that he and the PM promised the country to releave any public servant of their duties should the ICC indict him and it is on that basis that Namwamba and like minded kenyans want the president to act. Whether they are a minority or majoroty the president must be seen to uphold his authority. And in any case it is his same PEN THAT MADE US MEMBER OF THE ICC WHEN HE SIGNED THE ROME STATUTE. And while still at it, it is UK and co who embarrassed the two principals when they shot down two bills that would have created a local tribunal. AT THAT TIME THE MPs HAD NO IDEA THEY WERE IN THE LIST and so it would have been okay if any ordinary kenyan was accused before the ICC. We should not allow anyone to give this country a wrong precedence simply because some quarters are harbouring tension, WHAT THEN DO WE SPEND OUR TAXES ON POLICE FOR.

      • geofry

        From the word “your president” I get the point. And from such kind of talk, we are in trouble. I get the impression that you are a foreigner.

  • rebeccah muchiri

    why do we still judge things on basis of ethnicity? iam saddened by how people can reply to each other with hatred. are we not kenyans? when will we ever learn? it does not matter where the president comes from, so long as He/She is a kenyan. to my opinion, i think all this old people who have ruled kenya since independence should all quit. lets have a younger person (from 35) and all this bickering will end.  

    • Squidz

      Thats not the point Rebecca. Its not the old because if you look at this story for instance, it is a petition by a very youthful MP, not even 36 yet!

  • sammy

    In sometimes last year, when the nation was faced with calamity of hunger, we proved to the world that we can rise above political alignments as well as ethnic to offer our support and assistance to fellow country men who were faced with starvation. The four Kenyans facing trials at the ICC should be given fair trials and justice should prevail. Ad this is advocated for, let us not forget the many Kenyans who lost their loved ones in the post election violence. Children became orphans, women were widowed and men became widowers. These people too needs justice and not forgetting the many Kenyans still in leaving in IDP camps in their own country. I believe this country is bigger than any particular individual (s) nor a given community. This great nation is for all Kenyans.
    At these trying moments, we need to be steadfast in prayers and put this country in the hands of God. he is the only one who can give us the right direction to follow. Above all, let us all refrain from utterances that can plunge this country into animosity. Let us all leave in peace and let us have one BIG tribe called KENYA

    • rebeccah muchiri

      Its my prayer that all people could reason like you. God bless you.

      • Betsy

        there are really no trying moments for kenya. Just those who cheated paying the price. Ruto and Sang are innocent. someone thinks he will use kalenjins, NO WAY! our brothers were killed, some arrested. the plot will collapse

    • Squidz

      Kenya is not a tribe but a nation comprised of 57 tribes and sub tribes. I agree with you though that we need to avoid utterances that would plunge our nation into another disarray. In doing so, we must not forget to do things in the right way.

  • Jeff M

    The people spreading hatred and vitriol here should be sent to the Al shabab  front line and do a reality check on their patriotism.  Shame.

  • msema

    It appears many people did not read the Kriegler Report, nor did they bother to read the many commentaries that critiqued it.

    We are where we are because off bungled elections. Votes were stolen in broad daylight by the two camps, ODM and PNU, in the areas they were most popular so much that it was impossible to establish the true winner. That can explain why some areas were reporting unnatural voter turnouts reaching over 90% and the total tally for votes cast for MPs would not rhyme with those for presidential candidates in the same electoral areas. One thief was declared the winner and the other one, as you would expect, refused to accept the results or use peaceful means to arrive at a solution.

    The victims of this unscruplous state of affairs that led to violence and untold suffering are innumerable.  This is in addition to unquantifiable loss of property and general lack of peace spread all over the country causing uncertainties and poor business climate leading to joblessness and attendant porverty. We all, including those of us who did not or now do not subscribe to dishonest ‘ideals’   of ODM, ODM(K) and PNU did suffer,

    Generally, the biggest losser was Kenya as a nation and the true principals of democacy.

    Unfortunately, the two thieving camps have always played self-rightious (holier than thou approach) since then. But Kenyans need to know that even if the FOUR are locked up at the Hague and keys thrown away, we still have a significant number of equally culpable or worse criminals roaming our streats. It is likely that before long, we shall hand over our future to these scandalous crooks in the name of leaders by falling for their lies.

    Let us soul search, be honest to ourselves as individuals and as a nation as we think of the way forward. Think of how much it pays to be a footsoldier, a mouthpiece or an ardent supporter of one or all the criminals.You automatically become their comrade in crime.

    • Mweweangani

      well said..thank you

    • Kim

      Msema, news flash! When one side was stealing the vote…& I’m not referring to normal, expected anomalies…they ‘balanced’ for their opponents. So it would look like both sides stole fair & square. That is why the results were taking forever to be relayed, maths can be a challenge sometimes!
      This truths are slowly coming out but sadly, many still believe that ‘both sides stole, Kriegler said he doesn’t know who won’…That balancing act is the reason behind the 90% plus turnout in those strongholds.
      P.s: Kriegler did tell Raila later, ‘Who doesn’t know that you won’ It’s no surprise that the media gave that a total black out but spread like wild fire his statement ‘It’s impossible to know who won’Well, now you know!!!

      • Pratt

        Raila won and even ODM-K stole? Thats classical nonsense!  The problem was the character who wanted to lead Kenyans by deceit. He wont go to the court because he didnt have facts. He had to resort to what he knows best – thuggery! If Raila had won, we could have been presented with 3 sets of results. The first 2 correct ones showing how he won and PNU lost. And then the third one showing how PNU deceptively won. However, we were only confronted with provisional Juja, Molo and Tharaka Nthi results as basis for alleged thievery! Did Raila have any meaningful votes in those places and why only the three constituencies? The same tricks he employed those days are already at play again. Do you know why you are repeatedly told he is the man to beat in 2012? Do you know why he is the only one who commissions fake opinion polls? Do you know what will happen if he is beaten when he is supposedly leading? You have no idea of what you are talking about. But I dont blame you. Perhaps your village idol has monopoly of truth! Why is it that only when Raila came to the scene, Kenyans had to shed blood and lose their proprty? I thought both in 1992 & 1997 defeated candidates cried foul and we peacefully went on with our lives? There is something sinister about the character! Kenyans need to be very careful before they consider him for any serious position.

    LEST we forget

    Dreadful memories of the post election violence (PEV)are
    still  raw in most Kenyan minds.  During the2007 general elections  campaigns on 11th Dec, ODM announced
    through a press conference which was watched by millions of Kenyans and the
    world at large that, they will fight, through land,water,air etc to win this
    election. Many may have dismissed this as another campaign idle talk but a
    large number it was taken very seriously what followed after that is everybody’s
     the country went on flames innocent people
    were killed while thousands were displaced who are yet to be resettled even as
    we speak….

    This is why its so see disgusting to see the likes of Orengo,
    Nyong’o and co calling on the Uhuru and Muthaura to resign yet these are the
    people who were calling for mass action which left thousands injured, shops
    looted and businesses ruined thus crippling our economy .

      Exactly! The traitors are free and pretending to be holier tha thou. But its only for a while. The whole truth will come out like tsunami. Those who think they will lie to Kenyans all the time are going to be very disappointed. Raila is NOT a president! He therefore only needs to be consulted on mere coalition matters. For instance,  when his support is required in parliament or when matters that clearly involve PNU and ODM parties are on the table. Purporting to have his own government when he was merely asked to donate names to the cabinet is totally misplaced and actually borders on treason. He cant therefore pretend he can be consulted on every issue thats clearly vested on the presidency. After all, those consultation pieces were included in the transition act purely on malicious grounds when he “had majority” MPs. Thats no longer the case, but the likes of Orengo still thinks nothing has changed. They need to be told that the position of PM in the new constitution has become redundant. It cant therefore be used anymore to hold Kenyans hostage. And needless to say, that Raila no longer commands majority of MPs in parliement. PNU and its affliate parties should actually fix Raila in parliament if he keeps on bringing his nonsense on board.

    Civil society has failed

     A loud silence was
    heard from the civil society bodies when deputy Chief Justice Nancy Baraza the assaulted
    a hapless  Kerubo at village market
    during the new year’s Eve . As much as they may want  to convince Kenyans that they are reformists,
    nobody even dared  to open his/her mouth
    and call for resignation or even do what they know best, pour into the streets
    chanting anti Baraza and engaging riot police in endless battles

    A big question begs for a genuine answer is the civil
    society up for hire? Why are they selective when defending so called human
    rights? Or is it some Kenyans (human beings) are more equal than others? Why is
    the civil society taking sides? Following the disputed 2007 general elections,
    where thousands were displaced and so many people lost lives most if not all
    the politicians were to blame.

     Why then following
    the so called ICC Big Decision, are they asking for immediate resignation of
    Uhuru and Muthaura? Why are they not calling for the entire pentagon to on the
    Ocampo list? Surely, William Ruto did not act alone(I f at all he did)…..For
    example, I vividly remember Prof Anyang Nyong’o and Najib Balala asking Kenyans
    to participate in Mass Action which led to loss of life massive rooting,
    destruction of property worth millions, among other dreadful deeds that occurred
    during those days?

     

     

  • I just hope This country never ever ends up with another coalition government. Really disappointing
