Moi’s boys are building back the dictatorship in full with all the theatrics.
This would be funny if it is not so tragic. Here are some of the crazy bits of this madness.
1. NSIS to have the powers to arrest and detain people for up to a year in one shot. (Contravenes the Bill of Rights). Presumably this will give them enough time to torture people so that they get “confessions”. This is bull shit and it will not be allowed by the courts. This is the return of the Special Branch and the Nyayo House torture chambers. You can bet they are not going to detain them in police cells or in jail. They will be detained in designated places
2. Uhuru’s Security fumblers will have the power to designate places where no gatherings can take place. Of course this is back to the Chief’s Act when the chief’s had to give permission for people to hold meetings. This is what Uhuru hopes to use to ban political rallies under the pretext of security. This too is against the Bill of Rights and stands no chance before the courts.
3. Uhuru to pick his choice of police bosses. Same old crap.
4. Anyone who publishes or broadcasts information related to terror activities without authorization from Uhuru’s boys and the victims to be jailed. You can’t even publish pictures. Now Uhuru and his boys will just feed us with recycled photos of “killed” Al Shabaab soldiers.
Here is a more detailed summary of the filthy amendments.
If you add all these to the crazy Al Jazeera story on extra judicial killings you can see where the country is heading.
If Uhuru sighs this piece of rubbish into law, he will be humiliated again in court when the courts rules most of this unconstitutional. Now we see why it was necessary to put that need for a referendum to screw up the Bill of Rights. That is the most important part of the constitution.
