Kill 16% VAT Instantly and Completely

Good people. We have all been away, right? Things have been so confusing everybody just decided to keep quiet and watch the madness unfold.

Then they hit the nation with the insane 16% VAT tax and keeping quiet is no longer an option. On Saturday last week I had a loud chat with my good comrade Oduor Ong’wen and told him whoever cooked up this VAT thing want to destroy the country and may end up being destroyed themselves.

I also asked him to talk to Raila and tell him in no uncertain terms that Raila has to speak clearly to the Kenyan people and denounce this tax on everything. I told Oduor that Raila must stop behaving as if he needs Uhuru’s permission to talk straight to Kenyans about issues of such national importance and this tax heist by Uhuru and co. Oduor told me he just talked to him before on the matter and will do so again.

I gave Oduor a simple direct example of how devastating this VAT is.  I told Oduor I bought a farm tractor sometimes early this year. It was a good investment for me because I know how expensive and sometimes very hard to get farms ploughed with tractors. It costs Kshs 3,500.00 per acre and most tractors in Bondo area come from Rift Valley. So my nephew a very hard working man has been doing good business.

Then VAT came and all of a sudden his cost for fuel went up 16%. He has to increase his price range for each acre. Farmers can’t afford that and they can’t go back to the jembe and hoe. So digging the land goes up 16%. Then the price for the seeds and fertilizers are going to go up 16% because the sellers and manufacturers are going to say their costs have gone up. Transporting the produce goes up 16% and on and on in the production chain alone.

Then in every home the price of everything people use like foodstuff, clothing, transport (matatu etc) all go up. At the end of the day the 16% VAT increase will affect 10-20 different items everyday folks use per day. In effect this is not 16% tax on Kenyans. In reality considering all the items affected, this will be 200%-300% tax on each consumer in Kenya. Where else in the world can this kind of tax explosion work?

This tax will destroy the Kenyan economy in ways we can’t even comprehend now. And we are told Uhuru needs this money to pay debts or the lenders will shut off the money pipeline. Uhuru should have figured that out long time ago. They have been borrowing like maniacs and squandering the money to become super billionaires and now they want to rob everybody with this tax scum to keep stealing.

No way. People talk about being between a rock and a hard place. This is being between Satan and the devil for Uhuru. It is a doomsday scenario with no gateway. 16% Tax on everything Kenyans use is just not workable. And don’t even try some comical nonsense of reducing the tax to 12%. The real tax whether 12% or 16% is 200%-300% per person because you pay the same tax on everything you use.

And then we have Uhur overruling parliament to impose the tax after parliament which is responsible for our national budget voted to move the insane tax to 2010.


Now we are in court:

Massive Phony War On Corruption by Uhuru.

This war on corruption talk show is getting really crazy. Uhuru and every other leader is screaming endlessly about this so called war on corruption.

As I pointed out earlier I talked with my good friend Oduor Ong’wen and Prof. Oyugi who is a great comrade of mine and they told me the focus of the increasingly annoying handshake was to focus the war on corruption. I will address that at a later date. It is a serious discussion.

Now this nightmare about war on corruption.

Let’s start with the latest bizarre announcement by Uhuru that procurement officers will take lie detector tests. This is supposedly a huge announcement.

This is the president in full regalia making this important new fight speech on an a national day no less.

Why would we need this? What happens if you fail the lie detector test? Do you get fired? Do you get charged with a crime? What crime?

And for the love of god what exactly is in this ” Uhuru Lie Detector Kit”?

Something like. You stole my chicken? No. You are lying? “Lie Detector please figure this out”. Is this going to be it?

Don’t you just love this already?

How about if you pass the lie detector test? Does it mean you are so clean and therefore could never have committed any theft of public money? And may be never will.

In which other country in the world has anything like this ever been used effectively to fight corruption? None. Because it is utter nonsense.

This is the trick of making “earth shaking” announcements that amounts to a complete nothing in fighting corruption.

There is something called good old investigation by credible and competent investigators and agencies. That is how you find, catch and jail thieves while also recovering public money stolen.

The real problem in our fight against corruption in Kenya is the simple fact that the agencies and institutions charged with fighting corruption have been compromised by the executive branch of government which Uhuru leads. This is not rocket science.

EACC has been dead since birth and keeps dying even more if that is possible. Give them a lie detector test first.
DCI is run by the president and they have little interest in fighting real corruption and catching real thieves. As a matter of fact the job of the DCI is to protect those thieves and create diversions just like they are doing right now. Look at the circus of the NYS “investigations” and charges.

They are talking about Kshs 9.2 billion dating back to 2016 and we have in court some vinyangarika hustlers who at best were doing kazi ya mkono for the real thieves. There is no chance in hell the Ngiritas etc stole Kshs 9.2 billion.

These were small time thieves running around covering up for the real thieves and now they are being rounded up and humiliated in court so that the government looks tough and determined to fight corruption. Complete rubbish and the country is buying it. That is the shame of all these.

The real question is who are the big thieves being protected with this circus of mass arrests of watu wa mkono in the NYS mass theft?

Where exactly did the NYS money go? Remember they always say “no money was lost”. It is like saying yes, some theft took place but nothing was stolen. This is the endless voodoo war on corruption in Kenya.

The second issue on this matter is that if this was a real investigation the strategy is always get the small thieves to give info on the big thieves. That is how the mafia is handled. Let the small thieves bargain for their punishment while giving you the big thieves.

In this case the small thieves are already being assured by the big thieves to hang in there and they will be taken care of by the big thieves. DCI itself is going to persuade the small thieves to plead guilty to some minor charges, protect the biggies and all works well for everybody. We can see the plan.

Then of course we have the DPP and the EACC. Too useless to talk about. Never had even a single case of prosecuting those who rob the country year after year with endless list of scandals.

So the NYS investigation is a load of crap. Let’s go to the next. The Maize scandal where phony characters have been paid more than Kshs 2 billion and the farmers who delivered real maize are now broke and starving having been paid nothing.

Today there is some indication that the full list of the thieves involved will be made public tomorrow. Don’t hold your breath. Please.

We have a CS for agriculture and a PS. It should take them hours to access all info as to the Cereals Board have paid and how much they were paid plus what they delivered. I bet there are no records of any of these expect that the money is gone.

You can bet they will come up with phony names and right now they are building the walls to protect all the big guns. That is Kianjuri’s job as the CS of agriculture.

If anything here was serious,  Kianjuri would have been the first to lose his job or at least step aside. If  Uhuru could come up and tell someone like Kianjuri that  given what has happened under his watch at one of the most important ministries in Kenya he has to go and if he was involved Kamiti is waiting. But won’t happen because we all know what Kianjuri’s job is.

So the Big Four  agenda is Corruption, Cover Up, Protect the big thieves and whip the little ones for public entertainment. Such agenda is already succeeding right before our eyes. How great.

May be we are heading somewhere good with the bloody handshake?

Comrades, friends and others I have been as mad as all of you about the nightmare in Jamhuri today.


I mean stolen elections. Mass murder of protesters. Kids being killed in their homes and in kindergartens. And then this endless list of massive theft they call corruption. This is organized criminal looting. NYS 10 billion stolen by very crude methods. Easily detectable. The criminals should have been in jail yesterday. Every body knows who they are and who protects them.

National Cereals Board. 4 billion paid to connected thieves while farmers get nothing in a very difficult year for farmers. Health services in a mess. Nairobi county has moved to Mau hills under sinker Sonko. What did I forget?

So I have been pretty mad for my beloved country.

Then today I talked to my old comrade in NASA, Oduor Ong’wen. He was jovial and I didn’t get a chance to scream at him. Which was my intended plan.

I told him the handshake has shaken everybody who loves the country. He told me that is what it was supposed to do.

Then I told him the handshake could bare fruits for the country after I read what Raila said about fighting corruption (Organised theft by the state)–Govt-to-form-task-force-to-end-corruption/1064-4581156-ojxqmyz/index.html

mlI told Oduor that if this Raila/Uhuru handshake can lead to a real effective battle to end corruption and theft Kenyans would love it.

Forget this constitutional amendments big talk just kill corruption right now and then we can talk.

I was fortunate enough to talk with Prof. Edward Oyugi who was with Ong’wen at t hat time. He told me Kenyans are ready for honesty and patriotism in the leadership of the republic. He told me they will look for it and find.

Me and Prof. Oyugi talked about the situation in the country now. We agreed we have been staring at a cliff. We were all going to go down there. You cannot happily go down a cliff just because your opponent is going down the cliff with you. You are both going down dead. It is not good for anybody. That was discussion with Prof. Oyugi

Those who know the prof know who he is. Great patriot and scholar.


The discussion  reminded me of a story I read about a guy who jumped off from the 10th flood of  a building. When he was at 5th floor he said so far so good. This was not going to end well.  Certainly it didn’t. That is where we are as a country.

Miguna has gone raving mad

By Phil Wesonga

The so-called NRM General Miguna Miguna has purportedly given a long recorded retort to NASA President Raila Odinga whose only crime appears to have urged Miguna to co-operate and visit the Kenyan embassy nearest to him so as to get his Kenya travel documents back.

Everyone saw Miguna shred to pieces the application forms delivered to him by Immigration Dept at JKIA. This was after declining to give his Canadian passport to Canadian Embassy officials or to Raila Odinga himself to get get it stamped with his case number (not tourist visa as falsely claimed). The same passport mysteriously reappeared in Dubai.

At uhuru park where Miguna gloats of having sworn-in the People’s President, there were at least three senior consels and up to half a dozen commissioner of oaths/notaries public. What Miguna calls swearing in was a rubber stamp. TJ Kajwang was present in full legal regalia and instruments. He is not shouting from the top of Mount Kenya and about these episodes. So what this fuss about an LSK membership that was only obtained in 2010? SC Orengo has been an LSK member continuously for four decades while SC Khaminwa who was seated at the back row at uhuru park is now on his sixth decade. So Miguna is too junior.

Those of us who have studied Miguna’s history know without a shadow of doubt most of Miguna’s infantile hysterics are motivated by need for cash. The desperation for a grand-entry at JKIA comes a close second followed by a deathly need to have the ability to influence the masses to obey his commands.

However the cash changes Miguna’s attitude very fast. We know for instance, the Chicken-seller long identified Miguna as an out-of-control ego, an emotional wreck and a cheap political mercenary which he then quickly hired and deployed to launch attacks Raila Odinga.

His anti-Raila books were all sponsored by the chicken seller who he has always praised in his writings. You will rarely see Miguna criticise Ruto. And if he does, it’s because there is a remittance delay

That is why Miguna’s appointment as Deputy Governor Nairobi does not surprise us at all. He is but a mere pawn in the larger scheme of things.

But anyone can recall that in Canada, US, UK and Kenya or in his rape case, in the coalition government, his unmasking Raila books, the short-lived NRM sojourn and now his deportation it’s all about one man and hos quest to generate funds. Even human rights groups fighting in his corner must pay him. Even a mere media interview must be paid for. A lecture of diaspora Kenyans has high entry fees that goes straight into Miguna’s pockets.

Omiyo, Miguna can rant all he wants, he can insult all of the despots, but life continues. Some of us have also been arrested for our political beliefs, have gone on forced exile and even been detained. Where is the fuss?

Building bridges is our focus. And there is nothing Miguna will do to shift our focus.

For The Love Of God, Just How Much Water Does This Guy Hoard:


This is astonishing. Private farm in Nakuru owned by a Kenyan family.  7 private dams drying up rivers for everybody in the neigbourhood.  6,000 acres. Coffee Estates.  Dairy farms. And all and all.

Then ONE of the damn dams bursts open with many lives lost, havoc everywhere. We still do not know how this will end but the response has been very good. Keep it up.

The bigger questions are for later.

And the “sea of water” went on and on.

It looks like the river got back the water from the private dam but the water was more than 10 times what the old river banks could handle.

There is man made disaster and then there is this.

And this.

In away the whole country and even the urban centres are in the same position. This just can’t work. Simple as that.

Here are some questions we need to ask as Kenyans.

  1. How the heck did this guy get 6,000 acres of land in Solai. The people who were killed came from what are referred to as “settlements”. One is called Village Settlement and many were killed there.
  2. Now when you have settlements and some folk owning 6,000 acres next door you can do the math.
  3. And the dams. 7 of them. This guy grabbed all the river water in the area for his dams. So he had the land and the water. What is left even from the earth?
  4. Now the government wants to find out how to make dams work better. Great. But why not deal with the land travesty here. A lot of Solai people could use those 6,000 acres of land and may be build better dams and let the water flow down the rivers.
  5. How about just this for a start with our new handshake brothers who obviously are going to be at the funerals. For the sake of the dead do something about land ownership and use in Solai and elsewhere. Otherwise keep quiet.

Forgive Me For Being Confused

Oh Dear what the heck is going on with these people. Those who are running the  country want to be forgiven by the Kenyan masses for screwing the whole country and the citizens of the republic. Did anybody tell these people that forgiveness starts with confession.

For example you don’t rob me and come and tell me adongo forgive me while I enjoy the benefits of robbing you. Are you kidding me.

We have pile upon pile of frightening corruption evidence. IEBC alone has close to 10 billion robbery of public money and it seems the strategy is to disband the IEBC and disband the robbery because most of the beneficiaries of the money theft(forget the other one) from the IEBC are Uhuru, Ruto and their friends. So now destroy the IEBC and the evidence goes up in smoke.

Then we have that nasty land case in Nairobi involving billions of taxpayer money buying land which it appears already belonged to the government and don’t get me started about the National Land Commission led by that Swazuri crook.

And we are in the forgive and forget landmine again and the leaders including Raila himself are in this crazy bandwagon. Oh please.

Here we go:

I have kind of stayed away from the whole mess and haven’t talked to my comrades in the mix of things. Now I am getting nervous. Forgive me but  it looks like we need to grab these folks by the neck again.

This is the land saga I am talking about.
