We have a ton of battle in our hands

Folks

We have a ton of battle in our hands. Personally I think I will be heading back home again in January to handle a few things and see with my own eyes where we are taking the country.

Luckily for me I finally won my case against the government for torture in Nyayo House torture chambers so I need to go home to fix things with my family.

I won this case back in 2014 and it took forever fighting with Uhuru’s henchman Karanja Kibichio who is the PS in the Interior ministry to actually force them to pay.

I get mad when I see some cases being rejected because they are late and yet way back in 2003 we won a court case which declared that there is no time limit for abuse of human rights. That is why they are still prosecuting the Nazis.

But some Kenyan lawyers are just too lazy. If they did a little research they would find out that time limit issue has been ruled and there are numerous precedent cases to prove that.

I had a lawyer called Julius Juma who used to work wit Rachier and Amolo Advocates but now works on his own and he is a piece of work. Very good lawyer. Anybody with a human rights case should check him out.

So yea they will pay me some peanuts and I will use it to buy panadol to handle some PTSD problems. That would be marvelous won’t it? No I will use it to push my endless number of nephews through school. I screwed up going to jail when I was supposed to be paying school fees for their mothers, my younger sisters.

The sisters turned out to be pretty good business people but they insist it is my job to pay those crazy Kenyan college fees which doesn’t bother me because they are ones who have to face the little monsters when they demand college fees.

My mom was really concerned about that because she told me the only reason I went to college was to be able to pay school fees for the girls.

My father asked me if I even knew what I was doing picking a fight with Moi. I told him I knew exactly what I was doing. Then he said fine but I was going to pay a price for it and he told me that is going to be my problem not his.

Now back to earth. Oh sweet earth where we have Uhuru now as an illegitimate president. It is going to be tough as nails fighting these guys. They are very nasty and we are relentless. Show time starts next week on Tuesday. Folks are in good spirits and pretty ready to go.

In the meantime we have this bizarre situation where Uhuru is even rigging congratulatory greetings.

In the UK they are having a problem with Johnson. The Western countries including the crazy Trump guys are holding their cards. The Uhuru murder spree has spooked a lot of people out here.

Here is Johnson’s situation.

https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/article/2001260955/boris-johnson-under-fire-again-for-congratulating-president-kenyatta

Here in Canada we are pretty confident with the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The Foreign Affairs minister Catherine Freeland is very tough so there is going to be no fooling around with Uhuru.

We also have one of the more powerful ministers in that government (Citizenship and Immigration) a very smart guy who came to Canada as a refugee kid from Somalia and is very close to the African Communities in Canada particularly in Toronto where he grew up.

So we have to do the same thing we did with Moi when gave his High Commissioner, Mr. Nyamweya such a hard time Moi had to recall him from Canada demanding that the Candian government should not entertain Kenyans going to the Embassy to cause trouble.

The one good thing in Canada is that we don’t have that tribalism they have in the UK and US among Kenyans who seem to behave like they carried their tribes with them.

Raila fortunately has had a very good rapport with the Kenyan community in Toronto. He has addressed many gatherings here. Last time 2007 it was Miguna who was doing a lot of the organizing here. Oloo has also been involved before but we have several Kenyan groups here.

I personally worked very closely with Miguna although we had our differences later on. But the big fella is back with the team. We will see. Bu the battles Uhuru is going to face is going to be multifaceted. That is how Moi was brought down.

I know Uhuru thinks the Chinese will help him. Ask Mugabe. Kama Mbaya ni Mbaya.

In conclusion for now the one thing I can say we don’t want to hear about is some form of a crappy coalition government. We want clean, free and fair elections for the country and if we end up electing a goat as long as it is free we are fine. We will keep our goat.

So it is not about Uhuru. We demand free elections and if that election gives us Uhuru fare enough. This is not complicated.

 

NOTE: I thought of starting a new thread for the other had become rather long. Adongos post captures where we going hence its posting here. Sorry bwana Adongo, I just took the liberty

  1. Yes Nyatieng the tactical retreat was confusing but we have to move on.

    Oduor here is pretty frank. He knows what he is talking about and I like his confidence. I know how tough he is.

    The first time I was arrested he went to talk to my father to reassure him. My dad told him he is not worried about me. My dad’s idea was that if we were going to fight Moi we were lucky enough to stay alive. He said “keep it going and take what is coming”. The old man never forgot Ong’wen. He had tremendous respect for people like him. And so do I.

    Here is the story.

  2. Good people,

    What do you think about Orengo, Joho or Kingi leading us in the secession business? Raila has invested too much in his international image to lead this business. He is right when he says so and we should respect this.

    • Einstein

      Joho has already initiated a secession move at the coast. Not sure it will stand but he has already held some consultations.

      Its true we need another leader for this, but it has to be someone that believes in it and has the capacity to take it to its logical end. A team comprising Orengo, Muthama, Khalwalwe, Joho, Kingi could make it work. Individually they will be hit by the system, but together they would be formidable. Throw in there the likes of Miguna and it will get interesting.

      Meanwhile will wait to hear from NRM and hope Adongo has some good news, but right now I see a very long tunnel with absolutely no light.

      We cannot keep doing things the same way over and over and expect a different outcome.

      Even if someone not from Jubilee took over presidency, the entire system is inundated with Jubilee operatives, he would have to push out almost all senior leaders and staff in the military, police force, administration (govt offices), para-statals etc. He would then need to force the hand of media owners. And then embark on taming cartels

      Look at how Magufulli has morphed from hopeful democrat into a feared rising tyrant. All because he initially was trying to tame the cartels and they evidently are fighting back.

      meanwhile

      • I think Jakom has lost direction

        Before the repeat elections we were informed that no elections would take place

        We were then told to expect an election in 90 days

        And now we are told to wait for a swearing in on 12/12, and this is after declaring that he cannot be sworn in on account of image

        There is no vision, consistency, legitimacy nor strategy in any of these statements. All I see are attempts to pacify an increasingly agitated population. Those who are talking to NASA leaders, let them be aware that the revolution will soon be out of control. If they want to play nice with Jubilee, they are on their own

        I trust that the contradictory statements are the work of Jubilee and not NASA. its time to get our heads together and forge a united front/path to a new country. Am done with Jubilee governance

      • einstein,

        I just saw that NASA TV report you posted, thank you. What a brilliant idea. I am putting my money where my mouth is. We need to put money on this NASA TV project. I will.

        Freedom of the the press belongs to those who own the press. That is what Lenin said a hundred years ago in February 1917 to be precise. It is true today like it was then. Now we are talking. Definitely.

      • Folks I got the official launching document of The People’s Assembly from my good friend Oduor Ong’wen.

        MEDIA STATEMENT ON THE LAUNCH OF THE ORGANISING COMMITTEE OF THE PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY

        1st December, 2017

        We are here today to announce the next major milestone in the establishment of the People’s Assembly, the unveiling of the Organising Committee.

        We wish to make it very clear that Kenyans cannot and shall not accept the blatant usurpation of power by the Jubilee administration and its determined effort to revert this nation to an authoritarian rule and the attendant abuse of our human rights.

        This unashamed abuse was plain for all the world to see when we sought to hold a peaceful, memorial service for 26 supporters killed by trigger happy security forces.

        Their only crime was to welcome our leader the Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga upon his return from overseas engagement.

        The state unleashed it’s security forces again on Tuesday 28th November to stop them from mourning their departed compatriots.

        It cost 5 more lives, including that of 7 year old Geoffrey Mutinda, who was shot as he played on the balcony at home, by the same police expected to protect him.

        Their blood demands that there must be change in Kenya and we the people, as their fathers, mothers, spouses, sisters, brothers are resolved that electoral justice is a reality in Kenya.

        Majority of Kenyans did not participate in and neither do they recognize the October 26 presidential election hence as per Article 1(1) of the Constitution have not individually and collectively delegated their sovereignty to Uhuru Kenyatta.

        We assert, as per Article 1 of the constitution, the right of citizens to exercise their sovereignty at the county level is not subject to supervision or veto by the national government.

        As we embark on the final pillar of restoring democracy, just government and legitimate leadership, the following individuals will deliberate on and produce the road map towards the achievement of those objectives through the People’s Assembly which will lead us to a free and fair election or the path of self-determination.

        They are:
        Dr. David Ndii
        Judy Sijeny
        Hamida Kibwana
        Dr. Mutakha Kangu
        Dr. Oduor Ong’wen
        Koitamet Olekina
        Peter Mathuki

        The work of the Organising Committee will be to guide, facilitate and co-ordinate the programme of the various assemblies across the country. It will further set up and oversight a national secretariat that will be the centre for the activities of these assemblies among other duties.

        Thank You.

      • Dr. Ndii has been a revolutionary thinker for a long time. He is one of the smartest economists we have in Africa today. His politics is also fiery. I was looking for an article I read in the Daily Nation sometimes in July this year. I couldn’t get it but I got this other one. It tells you everything you need to know about David Ndii. It is a beautiful piece of work.

      • Now they are talking about Treason. Charge them all. Like I said it is the actions of the oppressive regimes that fuel revolutions. Uhuru is very welcome. Arrest Raila and charge him with treason and hang him. Or skip the whole waste of time and just take out the guy.

        The funny part is that the Uhuru types and their media mouthpieces keep saying this whole swearing in is nonsense and they are so terrified of it. What gives.

        https://www.the-star.co.ke/news/2017/12/06/raila-swearing-in-illegal-says-githu_c1680547

        It is gut time now. Cowards die a thousand times. It is unnecessary.

        https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/article/2001262453/raila-digs-in-as-state-warns-him-over-swearing-in-plan

      • Adongo,

        The opposition CANNOT afford to give up now. Let the chips fall where they may. Enough is enough and kama ni mbaya basi ni mbaya!!!

      • The AG is threatening Raila Amollo Odinga with death. He is talking of dragging the PM to Kamiti and hanging him. Phew!!!

        The fact that an AG (Muigai) and so called government spokesman (Kiraithi) would call a presser to pronounce that they will be putting Raila to death in the event that he is sworn shows their mind set. These fellas are obsessed with killing people no wonder they have not said a word about the 100 men, women and children they have shot dead so far.

        They wish Raila was dead!!!

        That’s the murderous mentality these people posses. Lets kill everyone into submission.

        I just saw a presser where NASA was giving the 6 pillars of NRM. The fifth was to hold credible elections. The very last one was secession in the event that everything else failed.

        Its a tough ride buddy

      • Mzee,

        The cops now say they are ready to arrest Raila. Usually when you are ready to do stuff, you just do it you don’t preach about it. The idea here seems to be to scare Raila and the NASA leaders. It may not work.

        https://www.the-star.co.ke/news/2017/12/08/were-ready-to-arrest-charge-raila-with-treason-police_c1682222

        And I can see Ndugu Oduor is in the house. He is tough like nails but very polite. I suspect he is going back to jail. He has been there for years ( He had five in 1987). He will survive. The battle is on.

      • And here comes The People’s Assembly Roadmap:

        https://www.the-star.co.ke/news/2017/12/08/no-backing-down-nasa-plans-many-activities-for-raila-swearing-in_c1682115

        I had a good discussion with my good friend Oduor Ong’wen today. Obviously we did not talk about the venue. But things are rolling and those folks are very focused and ready for anything and everything. Nobody is moving backwards. Good stuff.

        Here is the original Version of it:

        NATIONAL SUPER ALLIANCE

        ROADMAP OF THE PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY
        MEDIA STATEMENT

        The People’s Assembly Organising Committee was launched on Friday December 1, 2017 to oversee the preparations, develop the content and roadmap as well as provide logistical support for the People’s Assembly at county and national levels.

        1. WHY PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY?

        When the people of Kenya gave unto themselves a new constitution in August 2010, their collective hope was that they had buried a political culture where elections were mere periodic rituals and ushered in an enduring era of genuine democratic exercises where their votes count and are counted.

        These beliefs and hopes have been crushed by divisive politics that benefits a minority.

        The country is rapidly and steadily being driven along the path of autocracy. Instead of electoral democracy, the leadership prefers electoral authoritarianism.

        Electoral theft has become the preferred means of attaining the aim of installing tyrannical rule Kenya.

        Equally alarming is the emerging trend where some businesses are profiting from bad governance at the expense of democracy and the people.

        It is therefore incumbent upon Kenyans to rise up and defend their hard won constitutional order. Article 3(1) places an obligation on each of us to “respect, uphold and defend” the Constitution.

        In fulfilling this noble obligation, we the people, are called upon to directly exercise our sovereignty as affirmed in Article 1 of the Constitution. We are, therefore, happy to unveil today a full roadmap of THE PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY.

        2. GOAL AND OBJECTIVES

        The endgame of the People’s Assembly for Kenyans, is to either return to democratic government by holding a free and fair election within the first half of 2018 or pursue avenues for self-determination for those who believe in democratic constitutionalism.

        This is to be realized through the following objectives:
        • Defending the Nation’s Constitution.
        • Restructuring institutions of governance.
        • Pursuing and institutionalising electoral justice.
        • Insulating devolved governments from national government’s threats.
        • Fostering Economic Liberation

        The foregoing objectives will be realised through comprehensive deliberations under the following themes, which will be the subject of working committees:

        1. Restoration of Democracy, Rule of Law and Constitutionalism: This will focus on representation of the people, electoral system, management and institutions

        2. Restructuring the Kenyan State:

        The focus will be on review on the architecture, structures and workings of the Executive, Legislature, Judiciary, and Independent Institutions and Offices. The deliberations will also focus on National and Sub National Security architecture.

        Questions on the code of conduct of security agencies and as to whether or not security should be devolved and how, will be on the table

        3. Defending Devolution: The Assembly will look into among other questions, resourcing and autonomy of county governments, whether the country is ripe for a full federal system and questions of self-determination.

        4. Economic Liberation: There will be focus on the promotion of economic productivity that engenders inclusivity, equity and social progress.

        3. THE STRUCTURE

      • Bwana Adongo,
        The great thing here is that we are beyond the politics of Raila is power hungry, wants to grab power through the back door etc.

        Of course the AG and his gang of robbers are looking forward to thwarting NASA´s efforts. My guess is that they have looked for all ways of dealing with Raila and finally come to conclusion that the only way to stop him is to threaten him with death.

        The Kenya police is now taking orders directly from the AG. The police spokesman Owino is saying that the orders have come from the AG and they will execute them. SO as you say, they are telegraphing the arrest instead of just doing it.

        My guess is that their so called treason laws have no feet to stand on hence the fumbling and mumbling by the AG and police force.

        This is a country in which Uhuru and Ruto think that they can rule by the use of violence. They feel that the security forces will keep them in power.

        The police says it has two options:
        1. Act like hooligans and disrupt the NASA gathering
        2. Block the event from taking place in the first place.

        I have never seen such an idiotic government and police force in the world.

  3. Must say that I admire those of us that will repeatedly attack a wall until it gives way.

    I however will be waiting patiently on the other side, waiting for those who will cross to the land of secession. The true liberation.

    Nuff said

      • NOT SURE HOW GENUINE THIS IS:

        [11:29, 12/11/2017] +254 7** 1*6***: What really transpired?

        1. The swearing in was to go on. All preparations made at Tononoka grounds coast. Tickets booked and speeches made.

        2. Kalonzo from Germany called Raila asking him to put on hold the searing in. Musalia and Wetangula joined the fray of advising Raila to shelve the swearing in until further notice.

        3. The diplomatic core arrives at capital hill to meet the NASA leadership led by Bishop Oginde. Since Musalia and Wetangula were riding on the bus of shelving the swearing in, Raila delegates the duo to meet the ambassadors who were already seated in Raila’s office. Governor Kivutha Kibwana was also around to represent Kalonzo.

        4. The diplomatic core refuses to engage the NASA team until Raila is in attendance. Raila kept them waiting for long. Musalia and Wetangula had to work extremely hard to bring on board Raila. Raila finally agrees to meet the ambassadors. Talked very less and more of the time kept mute. In the few statements Raila uttered he repeatedly dwelt on ELECTORAL REFORMS and why the police killed innocent Kenyans who welcomed him back in Nairobi.
        The last word Raila tells the diplomatic core is that swearing in is on. No matter mater what.

        5. Musalia+Kalonzo+Wetangula accepts the call from the diplomatic core to shelve the swearing in and get down on a negotiation table. A message Uhuru gave the ambassadors to pass over to the NASA leadership. Its the ambassadors who decide to plan for the dialogue and mediate with help of clergy led by Bishop Oginde.

        6. Both Musalia and Wetangula intensifies talking to Raila for the need to shelve the swearing in alleging that many Kenyans will be killed. Pressure from the NASA principals makes Raila cave in but distances himself from the resolutions. He decided to keep mute. Wetangula, Musalia and Kibwana prepares a written speech to shelve the swearing in. You will note Raila didnt sign the speech. No ODM senior leader signed the speech too.

        7. Since Musalia+Kalonzo+Wetangula are the ones who bought the idea from the ambassadors, Raila gives them go ahead to do the dialogue. Today NASA team led by Musalia are to meet Uhuru plus his team at a neutral place in Nairobi to dialogue and negotiate. The moderators are the ambassadors with the help of the clergy.

        Well, lets see what comes from the meeting.

        LESSON: If you plan to do something with any Luhya, ask the meaning of the word MULEMBE. Its means PEACE. Since Musalia and Wetangula are my seniors, i will give them my ear. Hope they wont be shortchanged and start crying foul in a near future. But expect Raila not to be part of the government of national unity. He may consider too retiring from politics or stick to the check point bench

        ANNOUNCEMENT: The NRM wishes to state that it had no role in the “postponement” of the swearing in of The People’s President made by @MusaliaMudavadi yesterday. That was @CoalitionNASAKe’s decision. #NRM will give a way forward in the next day or so. Please remain calm & focused.
        12:36 PM – 11 Dec 2017

      • Nyatieng
        This postponement is such a let down to many NASA supporters.
        Its a kind of anti-climax.
        If I get it right,
        its Mudavadi and Kalonzo who chickened out.
        They pulled the rag under RAO´s feet in the very last minute.
        In my opinion,
        this move will demoralize the NASA base completely.
        Imagine that people like David Ndii have sat down for hours planning this event.
        Joho has offered the venue and spent so much on the event.
        Then, then, then…..Mudavadi and envoys of doom come up with some kind of funny story.
        The story is that they want to dialogue.
        My question is this:- who do they want to talk to?
        Uhuru has simply told them to shove it till 2022 when they can sit down with Ruto.
        To me, this is the end to a very good thing that might have been.

        Its where NRM comes in. This is where Miguna Miguna and company comes in.
        I have looked around and I cant see a leader, a person who can take on Uhuru like Miguna, Orengo, Muthama, Joho et al.

        So from my angle and the way I see it. Uhuru has done to Mudavadi exactly what he did to him in 2013. He has once more derailed the man. Its sad but true

      • Mzee and Others,

        I have not talked directly to the organizing committee contacts that that I have since Saturday but a few things are now obvious. I will talk to the friends within the next couple of days and let you guys know what is going on..

        In my view the pressure is coming from the NASA principals with Kalonzo as the chief
        compromiser. That should not surprise anybody. Remember Kalonzo i 2007. The man literally tried to hijack the entire ODM party because the registration was in the name of his friend Maanzo. ODM survived and Kalonzo came up with ODM(K).

        Then Kibaki outrightly stole the election and chaos ensured. What did Kalonzo do? He joined Kibaki. Enough said.

        The problem now is 2022. Kalonzo sees a window for him to get in there and he thinks he may need some of those Uhuru supporters who just ca’t stand Ruto. So Kalonzo is being told to calm down and help tame Raila in hopes of getting some Uhuru votes in 2022.

        It is a fool’s gamble. For Kalonzo to be anywhere near State House in 2022 he needs the entire NASA block vote and then more. By the confusing debacle and surrender that NASA has imposed on itself this week that NASA block vote is dead and gone forever. This is not rocket science. It is just simple common sense.

        Now for Mudavadi and his buddy, I think they are just confused. First of all the prospect of going to jail is not a joke. None of these guys including Kalonzo have ever been in jail. It is a scary place. When we used to tell Moi to come and arrest us we were ready for it. Jail was like our second home. It is terrible there but we knew we could handle it because we were there all the time.

        In this new group, people like Ong’wen, Ndii, Raila and others have been in there. The other folks can talk but the prospect of going to jail is a nightmare for them.

        All said and done I think NASA just hit an iceberg but it is not the end of things. We are going to put this thing back together in not time. We still need NASA and NRM.

        One of the most shocking things for Uhuru and his government was that the NASA team stayed together. They must be salivating at the possibility of a complete NASA breakdown. If that happens, Ruto will be your next president. That is too far away to worry about. We will deal with the here and now.

      • Adongo

        I had a lot of doubt on the strategy that NASA adopted

        – The boycott of repeat elections
        – The 90 day new elections
        – The swearing in
        – Economic boycott
        – Peoples Assembly

        There just does not appear to be a coherent formidable approach. It would be naive to ask supporters to “wait” for events to unfold” a.k.a deep hitting but yet to be revealed formula. That would work where we are eating meat and drinking booze. But the tragedy here is there are a lot of grieving families whose members or friends have been brutally maimed or murdered. There are people who cannot gain meaningful employment due to political persuasion.

        People were ready far mass boycott of products as well as mass resistance and even ready to face off with riot police and what not.

        What we cannot do right now is make excuses for why this or that is not happening or delayed. What the people want is a clear road map, and when some falter, just come out and say we are still en-route but partner A or B has fallen out. Its expected. Some will surprise us, others will not. But we must continue the journey. This start, stop, go, wait, turn around BS is hurting us all. Let your friends know that their moment is fading and soon they will watch a revolution that they cannot control and will in fact be swept out with. There area a lot of bitter and hurt people out there, when it explodes all of us will be swept by it.

        If they need more inputs, they need to reach out and very quickly.

      • Mzee et alia,

        Are you guys serious, that we can now, all of a sudden, rely on Miguna Miguna yet again after his acrimonious fall-out with baba last time?

        Seriously, we must have better alternative leaders out there than tumbocrats like MM & Co.!
        May be I need to personally, albeit late, venture into Kenyan active politics for lack of worthy leaders!

      • Einstein

        Its not just Miguna, but there are going to be a lot of scavengers waiting to inherit Jakom’s constituency. Many salivate at the prospect of inheriting his formidable support base. We will see a lot of pretenders to the throne

        However I think Miguna is up to the task to lead a battle as a general, he is a good guy to have on your side

      • Einstein,
        I don’t know Miguna at personal level, therefore I’m not going to speak on his behalf. Perhaps Adongo can shed some light on the mans ability. What I Know is that he has not shown any signs of tumbocracy. Another thing that I know is that Miguna has gained a lot of popularity after the elections.

        We have reached a point where we need men like Miguna to push us forward. You see, we are dealing with thugs in the name of Uhuruto. These are people who don’t give six pence about the law. If it suits them they trash it. Look at they way they have intimidated the judiciary. If you read the judgment delivered yesterday, you realize that no presidential elections will ever be nullified in Kenya again. Its the law of the jungle out there. Basically the court has said that elections do not have to be verifiable. It has said that the elections can be conducted in any manner and the outcome will still stand. Infact we don’t even need those expensive KIEMS kits for they are of no use. But the most hilarious one was when the judges said that there were never intimidated by Uhuru Kenyatta.

        Anyways, Miguna is upto the task. People like Miguna for his steadfastness. He is fearless and sticks to facts and truth.

        You see, in this “war” in which Kalonzo and company are basically being intimidated into accepting Uhuru, its men like Miguna who will get us to where we are headed. Miguna combined with the likes of Joho, Orengo, Muthama, Wanga, Ole Kina et al are the future.

        As Adongo opined, this is perhaps the end of NASA, for what is Raila doing in a coalition that does not want change? If he steps out of NASA that will be the end of it. I think he should. The issue of two steps forward tow steps back is painful for a man who has dedicated all his life to fighting for our freedom.

        The roadmap that Oduor Ongwen and co put forward was really nice and concrete BUT I’m really disappointed because it been trashed.

        Its could be true the AG scared both Mudavadi and Kalonzo. Its could be true the prospects of jail made them change their minds. Probably it would be impossible to arrest Raila but they figured the Uhuru would come or them.

        Alternatively money was poured and job position offered

        I have a feeling the ODM feels betrayed and without ODM, Kalonzos chances of beating Ruto in 2022 are nil.

      • einstein,

        I will respond to the Miguna issue later. I have known him personally since 1988 when we all ended up in Canada as refugees.

        I later worked with him when he was an adviser to Raila and we did a lot of things. We then had a major fallout in 2013 when Miguna started fighting Raila in his book(s) and actually made some very inaccurate and just outright false claims.

        Today I see Miguna is very much in the fold to confront the Uhuruto dictatorship. Miguna is a pretty straight forward guy. He is not afraid to take radical positions on things and was a nightmare to Kibaki and his allies when he was part of the negotiations for the coalition government.

        Like me I think Miguna is pissed off that the NASA team is folding and looking foolish under pressure.

        I sent a pretty harsh e-mail to my friend Oduor Ong’wen in the NASA organizing committee. I actually thought I was not fair to him but among comrades sometimes you have to fight even viciously if things are not going right. So I will get a hold of him and let you guys know where things stand.

        I think Raila and the NASA leadership got the message. Kenyans expect them to show leadership and stop being wimps. It may actually work well now that NASA has shown some flexibility and then probably in the new year go ahead with the Swearing In.

        People know that Swearing In will not end up with Raila storming the State House and becoming the president of the republic. It is a weapon to take our struggle for a free country into another level.

        Now that the diplomats etc came and bulldozed NASA to accept talks let see where that goes because it will go nowhere. Nobody wants nusu mkate of that rotten thing.

        But here was Uhuru’s Jamhuri Day celebrations. It is truly pathetic and speaks volumes why NASA has to wake up and get moving. People are just fed up with Uhuru and his nonsense.

        http://www.nation.co.ke/news/Empty-seats-at-Kasarani-Jamhuri-fete/1056-4225448-kfkhx2z/index.html

      • So many Kenyans celebrated the 54th Jamhuri Day!! “A picture is worth a thousand words” say the Chinese or whoever!!!

        1.) Kasarani

        2.) Machakos

        3.) Kisumu

        4.) Citizen TV Kenya

        5.) Meanwhile, wondering if this duty conscious policeman got a presidential award for a job well done!? I mean, if ‘githeriman’ could get one, why not this over enthusiastic ‘People’s Cop’?

        6.) But police, be careful. What goes around comes around! Some people create their own storms and then get mad when it rains!!

  4. Guys,
    Im really afraid of our county. Too many disgruntled people. To many disappointed. Too many who are ready for anything. The peoples assembly is on but I dont know whats it end game is. But my belief is simple, if we want to separate then Raila Odinga wont lead us towards this. He is a core nationalist and wont accept this. I want to repeat that Raila Odinga is what hinders that complete break away. Those who castigate him must therefore think twice for had it been me thing calling shot would have been different.

    Keep reading though

    • Adongo/ Mzee et al,

      Adongo,Thank you for sharing ongoing updates with your case against the former GoK. Sadly as we write, many others in the recent weeks have also had their human rights violated. We hope that NASAs legal team will guide them and that all victims will be able to exhibit your perseverance, patience’s and determined quest for justice.

      1. Kenya’s quest and eventual victory over Moi was mostly made possible by the iinternational community support. Unfortunately, The British & others currently have a stranglehold on the Kenyan economy which firmly favours the Jubilee government at this time.

      2.It’s arguable that NASA are advocating for secession whilst also pursuing electoral justice for future Presidential elections. I agree that RAO is a nationalist but I don’t want to believe that resolving Kenya’s problems is a Raila affair.The moment it becomes just that, then I believe the change movement will be dead. Besides we are where we are now, partly due to a chain of historical events involving his co-principals in 2007/8 & 2013!

      3. The People’s Assembly: It’s clear that it derives from the Constitution (which can be changed/subverted). What will the future look like for the People’s Assembly should Jubilee decide to starve County Assemblies of cash or worse dissolve those same County Government’s.

      And given the ongoing police brutality/ infringement of human rights – will these same police allow these People’s Assembly to assemble?

      4. Secession (The complete break away): Back to where we are and what lies ahead – It’s either another 5 years of Uhuru then another 10 year’s of Ruto coronation or the tribal Kenyan people say that enough is enough and finally opt for change.

      Interestingly, no country has ever seceded without extreme violent confrontation! even the milder examples of IRA/Northern Ireland or Catalan/ETA all tells a story of a determined government keen to hold on to its territory by all means necessary.

      The journey is long!

      • Nyatieng

        I find myself concurring on all points and especially 3 and 4

        Every struggle comes with sacrifice, I just know that with better goal planning and execution, loss of life can be minimized.

      • I hope UhuRuto will not have to take poison one day when found guilty of having committed crimes against humanity in Kenya like this guy.


        Chaos at UN court as Bosnian Croat war crimes defendants took what he said was poison

      • Folks,

        I must say I have not been able to share in the ongoing discussion which is crucial for the country.

        I should be able to do so before the end of the week. I was mad with some of my NASA friends because I thought they were not providing the kind of leadership needed at such critical junctures in history. They told me things were just too congested and they are sorting that out. Looks like we are going to get somewhere.

        Now today I just want to mention that we need a structured plan to take some of the insane human rights abuses by Uhuru and his police to International Justice System. There is ICC, there are numerous UN Human Rights structures etc.

        Specifically though we need to look into organizations that deal with abuse and murder of children. There are many. Even in war which is not the situation in Kenya now the protection of children is one of the most important issues that these organizations deal with because it is very easy to abuse and kill children.

        If you kill the adongos of this world you can say your life as an officer was under threat by this adongo fellow. Not so with the seven year old Mutinda killed by Uhuru in his house. That defense doesn’t work

        Here is the kind of dangerous abuse of human rights that I think must be addressed.

        https://www.the-star.co.ke/news/2017/11/30/how-seven-year-old-mutinda-was-shot-dead-on-uhurus-big-day_c1677673

        https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/article/2001261780/families-collect-bodies-of-street-protest-victims

        Uhuru’s cops have been murdering children so recklessly and in such plain view it looks like it is a new sport for Jubilee.

        The International Standard is very simple. When police and security agents murder children and the police officers involved are not held accountable by the state who employs them, the natural conclusion is that those cops committing murder of children are doing so on behalf of their government which cannot punish them because they are performing their duties to the state.

        Under those circumstances the focus is no longer on the police murderers but on their boss who in this case is Uhuru Kenyatta.

        The strange thing is that Uhuru’s cops as expected when you are dealing with bloody murderers are not very smart. In the case above, a young kid, Mutinda was shot dead by cops in his own house. It doesn’t get worse than that.

        After the cops killed the kid the police boss, Koome who represents Uhuru just bluntly and foolishly comes up and says that whole event never happened and there were no cops there. Everybody including Koome knows this man is lying for his boss. Be careful when you do that kind of thing. Be very careful.

        All we need is to collect as much credible evidence as we can to prove that this wasa police murder and add it all up with similar murder of children in Nairobi and Kisumu and we have a case to present to the international community.

        That is what I have asking my friends in the human rights movement to do. They are working on it and we are going to get somewhere with it. Getting to the ICC last time wasn’t easy but it achieved its goal of scaring the scavengers away. They are back and must we.

        We may need to jump start this by setting up something like “The Coalition to Protect Kenyan Children from State Violence (PKC)”

        Set something like that in Kenya and have it set up branches and affiliates across the world in countries like South Africa, in Europe, here in Canada and in the US then get to work. You will be shocked how much you can achieve if you can also get all the families of these children directly involved.

        Even devils (including Obel Sibuth) sometimes have a little respect for children. Well may be not our devil in Jamhuri but we may need to have those conversations and confrontations with them. It is coming.

      • Jacaranda Woman

        After being beaten up, a woman silences a Kenyan armed force on the day of Uhuru Kenyatta’s contested 2nd term inauguration.

        This woman should be made the symbol of the NASA Third Liberation Struggle.

      • Folks,

        Finally I got some feedback from Ndugu Oduor Ong’wen. He acknowledged that Kenyans who have supported NASA in the post August 8, 2017 turmoil have every right to be very angry. That was a good start for him because I did not want to have a blowout fight with my good friend.

        Oduor says that the move was essentially a tactical move and nothing has changed in the projection of NASA and the RESIST movement.

        I am going to have a more substantive conversation with Oduor over the weekend because we need to know exactly where we are going. But generally there is no need for panic.

        My concern was that it seemed that the big boys were making decisions after people like Oduor and kina Ndii had done a lot of technical stuff to get things moving. I wanted to know if they feel like orphans in NASA since Dec. 12, 2017. That is not the case and that is good news.

        One of the things that really annoyed me with the NASA Dec 12 move was that the leaders were saying they fear a lot of people will be killed if they go ahead with the swearing in.

        I told them that is a very irresponsible thing to even say. It is not NASA killing hundreds of Kenyans including children. It is Uhuru doing that and many of us are ready to put together plans to hold Uhuru responsible for mass killings of innocent Kenyans including children.

        If NASA now says people will be killed if they carry out democratic activities they are taking responsibility for the deaths which is just letting Uhuru get away with mass murder.

        So it seems NASA slowed things down on purpose and more so not to be seen as hell bent on their political agenda with no regard to anything else. That tactical retreat needs to be cut off very fast. In politics you strike when you need to.

        So this discussion is just beginning.
