      Baba, I am no kyuk or GEMA but such comments add no value to anything Now, when RO was appointing ministers to certain positions why didnt we complain that it was only those tribes that were being re-appointed.

      On a light touch, Githae has been very idle in his ministry to a point he went to advertise for some infrastructure development for Machakos.

    • Edmmusyoka

      No medals for guesing your surname!!!! but your comment is idiotic

Atleast you have the immunity of Mkenya Kamili not knowing what hole you are in. you seem so blank with cowdung in between your ears ,in place of brain, and thats why you pick fights with strangers.

        it shows how our leaders are still deeply entangled in tribalism, they prefer their own to run sum top positions, u see now uve identified urself as GEMA (“whats Gema” ?) thats why u dnt see nothin wrong with the appointments. ur so tribal & disgusting, i think u need some self reform & they say the begining of self reform is self critism, u see when u critisize urself u tend to expose the endemic that dehumenize u to think like a patriotic kenyan.

        • Pratt

          This one is not proper. You sound like those guys who have been repeatedly told not to work till their kinsmen take over power. And then that deliberate stagnation became historical injustices! Now 50 years on and crippling poverty, vengefulness cant be hidden. Will that really help? You are supposed to turn against those who lied to you. However, I guess tribal loyalty doesnt permit that. One thing certain is that ill-will hardly succeeds. It only helps others fortify their ironclad resolve pal! 

      • Anonymous

        It is more than just putting food on the table. It is also about regional balance in appointments. It is about fairness in appointments. No positions are reserved for a specific community.During Moi’s time Mudavadi, Saitoti, Kibaki and even Okemo served as Finance Ministers. This time around,  this post has been reserved for those from Mt Kenya.It was Mwiraria, then Kimunya, then Uhuru and now Githae. Do not forget Michuki who acted for some time. Surely yawa!!!!

The constitution is clear n now a public document….Even this prome minister role should be quit!!!! The ICC will for sure rule but we need build our houses whenever and wherever we are in a responsibility situation or duty and to always stop using our tribes as the stepping foundation when we need “FLY”……only running to them when we need heckling.

    That’s more like it. Wakae kando. The same stroke of pen that has a history of suspending public/state officials should be used firmly and fairly on any person that violates the constitution. After all, their doom was sealed by Obako when he said he will wait until they are confirmed to do so. Plus there was that government agreement to suspend any public servant with such charges until they are cleared. Double edged sword huh.
    And speaking of Obako and Mungiki. They are coming to get you sir. How sad to have this on your retirement plate.

    Kenya is gradually maturing… public officials must understand there is something called accountability.  The offices you occupy are not your family’s.  You owe the citizenry a level of liability.  Go rest as Kenya runs.  Government will still function with your absence.  As for your replacements… hakuna kabila ingine?

  • Anonymous

    Yes Kibaki is a tribalist we all know that. But that does not mean that his actions should be used to vilify an entire community, most of whom are regular wananchi with zero political influence. Such reasoning is what led to the unfortunate PEV. Let the political class engage in their shenanigans, let wananchi live in brotherly peace.  And lets vote out all these idiots come August or is it December!

    I love these Kyuks ( though technically I am one) They appoint their own to the top government organs at treasury, DOD, Central Bank, CCK and when others question it, it is tribalism, ukabila. Ati we look at them as qualified Kenyans. the people that should be offended the most is the rest of the House of Mumbi. These guys never share the spoils with you. they don;t improve your welfare. This community has the largest number of hawkers, touts, name it. if it was a community thing, they’d have invested heavily in Central mkapata jobs and development.

  • Cipa

    You wanted Raila’s blood brother Oburu to head treasury and that is OK?  It is time this sentiment against the Kikuyus that was started and is nursed by some politicians is addressed fully.  Are Kikuyus not Kenyans? Where does most of taxes come from if measured by community?  You can be sure the Kikuyus pay the most.  IT IS TIME THE WORD TRIBE WAS BANED IN KENYA. 

    • kenyan

      I am no kyuk or GEMA but but I am not shouting that a kyuk should not have been put there. There is no way Oburu could have been given the post as the post belongs to PNU’s side of the coalition.

      So guys who are crying should actually stop behaving like the proverbial warthogs. When Ruto was chucked out of Agric, another kaleo was installed there. Who complained? when Anyang goes to rest, Dalmas is appointed Ag minister, who complains?

      Therefore relax. Most guys complaining here are ushago guys who moved to Nairobi for university studies or college studies and therefore the village in them is stringer than anything else.

    all guys above are mad and sad about Mkenya Kamili… BUT i wanna say he is absolutely right! I am not from GEMA but I know that they Gikuyu believe to be the choosen tribe to lead this nation. Its sad that most guys would want guys to close eyes and forget that this is not tribalism when we all know that it is tribalism.. what happened to having the position to be vacant or better still have the Assistant Minister in treasury take care of the period… NO No .. it all about GEMA… There is always an END to everything soon or later things will change…. until then…. the appointment were tribalistic and Mkenya Kamili was right !

      Suffer?? Hahaha. Did Kikuyu’s make money during Moi’s era? The answer is yes  they did and they will continue to do so regardless of who is in power. That is a fact and you can roll your eyes all you want. Deep down you know the ones that have benefited from being close to power are less than one percent; the rest of them have sweat for what they have. As for your public and political offices, you can all share the spoils once Kibaki is out. Kikuyus will be a minority in the next few decades but THEY WILL NEVER STOP MAKING MONEY. You can take that to the bank.

  • Capital FM, this is your web-site. Even in this world of freedom of expression, you should know when to intervene and do some moderation. Some of the comments on your own website border on hate speech and tribal animosity. Some of the contributors’ comments on this thread have actually nothing to do with the subject at hand. Come on and take charge of your website and enforce your guidelines!
    This venomous exchange reminds me of the situation that preceded the chaos of 2007/2008. WILL YOU EVER LEARN?

    And fellow Kenyans (or some of you who purport to call themselves
    Kenyans), when will you ever grow out of your insecurities and
    superiority complexes about tribe? Look at Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Bosnia,
    Somalia, Nigeria. Are these countries not glaring examples that
    disagreements based on ethnic, clan or religious affiliation are

    I hope that the day hastens when you will finally look beyond the logs
    in your eyes and SEE that the problem is not of tribe but class
    differences and elitism. Probably, you all live in the same kind of
    neighborhood; love either Gor Mahia or AFC Leopards; are struggling to
    help your extended family; are frustrated by the high costs of living;
    aspire to “make it in life”…

    Now, what makes you think that you and RAO or Kibaki or Makwere or Ruto are of the same ilk? Think about it…

  • Amosgathigo

    i guess these comments i read here are from foreigners not kenyans.

  • It is the height of absurdity for PPS to say Uhuru has been relieved of his duties yet he shall continue to hold the office of Deputy Prime Minister. Is he a statue carved onto the surface of that office!

  • Emaanuelshikuku

    kibaki is incapable of appointing any other tribes to positions of power aint it great that he is leaving? can’t wait tosee him at the Hague the spider web is closing in!

  • Raila


  • Fredndong

    This is stupid, you cannot chose to read the constitution selectively. What if the DPM goes Insane? does he still hold on to the office because he has not died yet? or been voted out? or blah blah blah?

  • I think it was absurd that we were
    negotiating with Hon. Uhuru and Amb. Muthaura about their staying in office.
    This should not have been a debate at all. The two should have exited the same
    day the Hague based court confirmed their charges, not because they are guilty but
    because that is the honourable thing as precedence and dignity dictates.


    saw Hon. Ruto stepping aside after corruption charges were brought against him
    before a court of law. Hon. Kosgey did the same and Deputy Chief Justice Nancy
    Baraza was suspended awaiting the decision of a tribunal.


    Kibaki should have been fast in giving Kenyans reasons why he thought Amb.
    Muthaura and Hon. Uhuru Kenyatta should be treated differently. The President
    was making a goof that would have had Kenyans interpret this as a double
    standard for sacred and non-sacred cows, with sacred cows coming from the Mt.
    Kenya people, where I belong, yet I am not sacred at all. Such would have been
    tragic as it was reminiscent of the selective justice prior and after the 2005
    referendum and which is to blame for incising the 2007/8 dark era. Such would
    have pushed Wanjiku far away from believing in the government as ‘hers’.


    President, the constitution that we fought so hard for many years was about
    ensuring its equal application. I wish it was you who suspended the two because
    that would have sebd the right signal as did the courts on the Baraza issue. Such
    could have been the most important decision you could have made as the
    President of the Republic of Kenya and that would have been very reassuring.
    That these two are bowing out from public pressure speaks alot about the legacy
    that you intent to leave behind as you exit from statehouse.


    I insist that the moving away from office of Hon.
    Uhuru and Amb. Muthaura has nothing to do with on. Uhuru and Hon. Ruto’s eligibility
    to run for the Presidency. That is a matter that Kenyans will deliberate and
    decide upon, hopefully with the help of the committee of legal experts that the
    AG set up. These are two distinct issues and must remain clearly so. And for
    record, Hon. Uhuru and Amb. Muthaura remain innocent until proven –beyond reasonable
    doubt – otherwise.

      Ngwati…am glad you said it. Just look at the kenyans out of country and the most successful are kyuks. very hardworking guys who don’t peg their success on tribal leaders.

    “My people are dying for lack of knowledge ,” says the Good book. It further says that “forgive them for they know not what they are doing.” Pole for my ignorant brothers and sisters who look at the world or the nation with the thick lenses  which only see tribalism.This animal called tribalism or ethnocentrism is a propagation of our political order. Why? me and you are not any different. Not biologically, physically, spiritually or intellectually, We are only differentiated by how we roll our tongues inside our mouths, based on the language spoken where we were born or grew up. As we grew up, we adopted the habits of the people around us.That became our culture. It is therefore primitive thinking for “schooled” (not educated) people to continually pour vitriol  on or about innocent wananchi only because they belong to the same ethnic groups as political chieftains from whom none of us gets any political benefits.I won’t allow myself or my children to suffer any indignation or intimidation for being who we are. We never chose. It was just as natural as on the  day follows night. Shame on high priests of tribalism as portrayed in these comments.

    Lets say the truth,  Kibaki is  tribal. Kenya has 42 tribes where are other tribes if he pull out kikuyu and replace  with kikuyu and meru replacing him with meru. For 10 years finance minister coming from one region copy from moi. Call a spade a spade not a big spoon.

    This tribal tone is taking off the point, we all are loosing it. I salute Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta and Amb. Muthaura for stepping aside albeit not by their own will, I wish that all parties (the victims and suspected perpetrators) find justice at the Hague. I also wish that Mr. Njeru Githae, will have the foresight to release the funds that will be used to settle the IDPs and budget for adequate funds for the elections later on in the year. I also wish that when the elections come, we will use both use our heads and hearts to choose our leaders for the coming five years. And as we vote, let’s  give some room to the will of God and the will of the people of Kenya. GOD BLESS OUR MOTHERLAND, KENYA

    Now Amb. Muthaura and Hon. Uhuru Kenyatta have stepped a side now it is time for the man who called for mass action to step a side. I strongly believe that without asking for a mass action no post election violence could be there. Unfortunately, the war crier is being sympathised by the ICC! In this case Hon. Raila turns out to be a catalyst. My teacher termed a catalyst as a substance that speeds up a chemical reaction but remains unchanged at the end of the reaction.

    In the States with several tribes from jamhuri represented. Your guess is as good as anyone lese’s that majority of those who have realized their dream are from GEMA community. others are just a bunch of lazy men and women who expect others to put food on their table.

    Some of these comments needs to be moderated.

    Yes! Its true tribalism is real, we are all from our tribes so we are tribal in character. Its in our blood but if it is made a crime to talk about tribes may be it will not be talked about openly but believe me, that even tha next presidential elections its actually tribal devides that will determine the vote. Like it or hate it!! and its gona be sooner than earier expected.

    I think the appointees are equal to the task..lets give them a chance. my arithmetic teacher in one of the lessons ‘probability’ taught us that the more the objects in a population, the higher the chances of picking that object…our case here about GEMA based on the last census concur with ma mwalimu. The probability having 40 per cent of all the patients in the republic being from GEMA is very high..the same to mortuaries,the same to GOVT appointments..They didnt apply to be born from that geographical area in Kenya.. KUDOS GEMA mlitajirika kwa vitanda…oeyyyyeee
