  1. London is burning and you are whining about death sentences in Africa? Did the british police uphold Mark Duggan’s human rights or dont black subjects in the UK have the same rights criminal in Uganda and Tanzania need

  2.  Several US states apply the death penalty actively unlike Kenya where it has been in de facto suspension. So if you do not have the balls to take your advice to the Americans who need i more than Africa and only want to give your condescending lectures here, you can take your advice and shove it up your posterior.

  3. Well said Blackpower/Kamau. Dont see why this diplomat feels the need to assert his views on local issues. I think the western world ought to realise their influence and relevance in the world order are history.

  4. I happen to possess an anathema for most pieces of advice coming from these quarters and this happens to be one of them. I hold the view that death sentence is not the silver bullet  in eliminating violent crime but  we must differentiate between people who commit lesser crimes that attract life sentence and the murderers out there. The possibility that a murderer serving life stands a chance of getting freed based on clemency laws is spine chilling and eliminating that possibility through upholding this most extreme punishment would be highly welcome. As for Rob Macaire and his masters,please consider giving this advice to the states of Texas,Nevada,California,Arizona just to mention a few in the US,that still practice the Anglo-Americal Common law of capital punishment.

  5. Looks like Emperor Macaire is out of touch with the latest debate in his own country (i.e before the riots).  While you were busy patronising Kenyans sir, your country is debating whether to reinstate the capital punishment.  Due to serious breakdown of order and norms in your country, there have been several e-petitions calling for its reinstatement.  In fact, half of adults in Britain would be in favour of restoring the death
    penalty for cases of murder, according to a poll by respected pollster, YouGov.  40 percent of your country men however disagree.

    So Emperor Macaire, are you giving us the views of the people of your country or your own opinionated talk down?

  6. ” But people who try to blur the line and make excuses for suspects being murdered…”.

    Dear Mr  Macaire,

    I consider myself as an African, but from a tribe called Kenya.You are the rep. for your Gov.Therefore my understanding is that the views you are expressing  are your Gov. views too.Your country is mercilessly killing our brothers in the north from a tribe called Libya in the name of implementing a U.N resolution.Your Gov. ignored totally the perspective of our African leadership regarding the crises.Those people are getting fragmented day by day.Your powerful bombs are killings our brothers.Your interest may be to kill Gadhaffi since you consider him as a mass murderer.But the libyan will ever remain divided along tribal lines.The people your bombs have killed so far have not been tried in any court of law and they remain suspects.
    In your  article you are trying to be againaist in kenya what you are practising in Libya.Does it make sense?

  7. I look at Botswana, and how they once exerted the death penalty on Mariette Bosch and how Tokollo, the TKZ dude, fled Botswana after being wanted for causing a death as well. It may be inhuman for some, but it upheld the law there, and every time I visited, that was all people were discussing, and reminding me not to do something stupid there. In Botswana, if you ever heard that the police were looking for you, you would submit yourself at your earliest convenience to the nearest police station and you dealt with things then. You never let the police look for you, cause the consequences were bound to be dire. In winter, people would drive to the bank, jump out of the car and leave the engine running to keep the car warm, go into the bank and do their banking and come back and still find the car there. That’s until Zimbabwe went to hell and crime started rising in Botswana. My point is, in many cases, the fear of being executed for a crime does cause people to reconsider what they are about to do. I look at child rapists, violent thugs, people who swindle NGO and government money aimed at humanitarian and development efforts and I would imagine that the only language to get to them would be the death sentence. When the gun is pointed at you, in the name of a violent robbery, i figure whoever is doing the gun pointing has voided the guarantee on their life, and thus, they don’t deserve it. This is not aimed for chicken thieves and burglars who prefer not to interfere with people but for those who are willing to maim or take a life. If you violate someone’s life temporarily or permanently, you don’t deserve to be part of humanity. I think when a couple of people get hanged, criminals will sober up and reconsider how they go about their crimes. If someone was to violate your family member or friend in anyway, the most common reaction is anger and revenge, but it shouldn’t be. Let the state handle that side of business, but let there be a consequential system that actually works. Without consequences, no lessons are ever truly learnt.
