Rt. Hon. Raila Amolo Odinga

Nasa presidential candidate Raila Odinga has issued a list of 42 people he claims are police and military officers deployed by Jubilee to interfere in the General Election.

Mr Odinga on Thursday said the 42, who he claims are drawn from the Army, National Intelligence Service, General Service Unit and the Dog Unit, had been assigned to work as returning officers, clerks and party agents on August 8.

WORK IDs

“The decision was made at a meeting held on 23rd June where the officers’ work IDs were withdrawn and they were given the normal IDs,” he said.

He said some of the officers had contacted Nasa on the secret plan.

“I’m not just making wild allegations,” he said. “Some of the officers have talked to us…we have evidence and will provide it.”

The Orange Democratic Movement leader claimed his alliance was poised to win the poll and urged the military to keep off the elections.

“(They) must not be used to subvert the will of the people,” he said.

SPECIAL DUTIES

Mr Odinga challenged the Inspector-General of police to explain the nature of the special duties the 42 police officers have been assigned and the criteria that were used to identify the officers to be picked for the special duties.

“Elections are not a military affair and we are asking the Chief of Defence Forces not to be used on matters of the civilians,” Mr Odinga said.

Addressing the press at his Capitol Hill office, Mr Odinga claimed that the opposition is in possession of details of the June meeting indicating that a poll commissioned by NIS showed that Nasa was destined for a clear win with 70 per cent.

“The Jubilee minutes dated June 16, 2017 described a Raila win as ‘tragic’ and said President Uhuru Kenyatta would outrightly reject the results and refuse to hand over power,” Mr Odinga said.

The ODM party leader warned President Kenyatta not subvert the will of the people in the forthcoming general election and that he should respect the Constitution.

Mr Odinga accused President Kenyatta of presiding over runaway corruption, massive unemployment and a malfunctioning economy, saying the Jubilee leader has NO achievement to show Kenyans. Below is the full statement.

NASA PRESS STATEMENT:

SUSPICIOUS DEPLOYMENT OF POLICE OFFICERS ON UNSPECIFIED ELECTION MISSION.

Exactly one month ago, that is on the 20th of June 2017, at this very spot we stand on today, we alerted the country to the plans by the Jubilee administration to involve security agencies in the conduct and management of elections in ways that had nothing to do with maintaining peace and order.

We said that the mobilisation for involving security agencies in the conduct of elections began immediately the High Court ruled in April that presidential election results declared at the constituency are final and not subject to any moderation or alterations.
Of course the Jubilee administration, led by President Uhuru Kenyatta quickly mobilised and denied the existence of such schemes.

Today, we want to address a very specific aspect of this mobilisation and in turn demand very specific answers from the authorities to the country.
Documents in our possession, and which we are sharing with the public, indicate that a team of 42 police officers have been assigned what the Kenya Police Service calls “Special Duties” via a circular dated 23rd June 2017.
To perform the “special duties” the officers have had their kits withdrawn. They have been issued with clearance certificates and asked to report to police headquarters to be issued with discharge certificates on or before 2nd July 2017.

These officers have been picked from the various police formations including GSU, Kenya Airport Police Unit, Traffic, and Dog Unit among others, across the country.
Recruits to this scheme are also being drawn from the National Intelligence Service.

Information at our disposal indicate that these officers will be recruited as polling clerks of the IEBC, of course with instructions from the Jubilee administration on how to behave.
A similar exercise took place in the run up to the 2013 elections, when officers drawn mostly from the NIS were recruiting as polling clerks, IT officers and into other positions where they proceeded to manipulate and corrupt the system from within to deliver a dubious victory to Jubilee.

The recruitments going on now are not happening in isolation or out of the blues. They are products of panic strategy meetings by Jubilee that followed both the court rulings mentioned earlier and NIS polls that showed President Uhuru Kenyatta trailing by a huge margin.

We have details of a meeting dated Nairobi, Friday 16th June 2017 whose preamble said that an opinion poll commissioned by the NIS the week before had caused massive panic in government as it put the race at 30 per cent to 70 per cent in favour of NASA.
It was after this poll that Jubilee hurriedly formed a team that discussed in their own words, “three possible scenarios of the impending General Elections outcomes, and their likely repercussions.”

The recruitment of police officers into election activities and the mobilisation of other security agencies for so-called peace operation fall within the recommendations of the Jubilee team under scenario number two which was “An Undisputable Raila Win.”
The jubilee minutes dated Friday 16th June 2017 described a Raila win as “tragic” and said president Uhuru Kenyatta would out rightly reject the results and refuse to hand over power.
It is under this scenario of a Raila win, which now looks increasingly likely, that the on-going activities fall.

The Jubilee strategy team had recommended, among other things, use police officers as polling officials (presiding officers, polling clerks, and polling/party agents.)

We are demanding the following from the Inspector General of Police:
a) What is the nature of the special duties the police officers have been assigned?
b) What is the current posting of the police officers in question?
c) What are the criteria that were used to identify the officers to be picked for these special duties?
d) Which other Police officers are involved in special duty assignments surrounding the upcoming General Election.

Once again, we want to challenge President Kenyatta to go beyond mere rhetoric and show in action that he is prepared to play by the rules and respect the will of the Kenyan people in this election. Uhuru must not subvert the will of the people or overthrow our constitution. His maneuverers indicate that he is not prepared to respect the verdict of the people, contrary to his pronouncements.

To our supporters, I wish to affirm that there is something good in Uhuru’s manoeuvres. They indicate Jubilee is struggling and Uhuru is beatable.
Having failed the country by presiding over runaway corruption, massive unemployment and a malfunctioning economy, Uhuru has no achievement to show Kenyans and nothing to propel him.

The momentum is with NASA. We are poised for an outright win and Jubilee must end these manoeuvres.

Drama as man disrupts burial of Nkaissery, claims he was sent to resurrect him

A man interrupted Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery’s burial ceremony on July 15, 2017 after trying to resurrected the late CS. Anthony Njuguna surprised many after walking straight to where the casket was and started praying for the CS interrupting Chief of Defence Forces, Gen Samson Mwathethe’s speech who had just walked to the podium.

Kenyapoa has learnt that Njuguna insisted that he had been sent by God to pray for the late Nkaissery and raise him from the dead.

He was quickly whisked away by the tight security and was taken out for further questioning.

“The spirit of the Lord sent me here, to come and fight the forces of death,” said Njuguna.

“If you allow me to go back there and pray for Gen Nkaissery; if he does not resurrect, feel free to kill me.”

VIP security couldn’t explain how the man managed to beat the tight security and move straight to the Casket.

According to Daily Nation who first reported the story, Njuguna claimed that angels helped him reached the casket.

“I told God that I would be coming to this place and asked Him to send his angels so that they could protect me until I reached where the casket was,” he told the security officers.

Also, in the same funeral, there was commotion after a man tried stopping President Uhuru while he was walking out of the tent.

The man wanted to hand the president a letter before security pounced and whisked him away. “When the President came to Kajiado on July 5, I tried to reach out to him,” said the 35-year-old called George Kinyaga.

“His security detail took my number but I have not yet received a call from the President. That is why I came here today to jog his memory.”

Excessive force against Kenyan voters is Unnecessary.

IMG_0623.JPG
Inspector General (IG) Joseph Boinnet

IG JOSEPH Boinnet says they will have to use slightly more force than that used by violence perpetrators if chaos breaks out during polls. However, there will be no violence as long as polls are free and fair. This idea of the security Council meeting in state house and planning how to rig the Kenyan election and then threatening the public is unacceptable.

Early this year, the government received 25 new state-of-the-art police vehicles, including bullet-proof cars, which security officials said will be deployed to terror-zones to fight crime. The Kenya Poa has since learnt that the vehicles were offloaded from a vessel at the Port of Mombasa on December 29th and subsequently transported to Nairobi under tight security. A senior police officer told us that the police cars will be deployed to patrol conflict-prone tribal borders and areas with terrorist activity.

The senior source also reported that more police cars were expected to arrive in the next few months before President Uhuru Kenyatta publicly commissioned for their use at a national event at Uhuru park as part of preparations for the general elections in August. The new acquisitions added to a fleet of 30 armored police fighting wagons that the President commissioned last year February (2016). That delivery was for use by the General Service Unit (GSU), with most going to Lamu, Garissa and Mandera counties.

The former cabinet secretary for Interior Joseph Nkaissery said in January this year before he was killed that the police will deploy heavily in Mombasa, Kisumu and other hotspots, a statement that NASA supporters read as foretelling targeted police deployment in opposition zones. We have never established from which country the equipment were sourced.

However, our view is that, Don’t make elections to be a matter of life and death. Seasons comes and go. Kenya is here to stay. Everyone was born with nothing and will exit life with nothing. What’s the greatest command of Jesus? Put these efforts in combating extreme poverty. Go to North Eastern, Northern Rift valley , parts of Coastal region and many parts of the country, majority of the populace are waiting for death by starving when a few people steal everything from the government. Sometimes, Many of us don’t understand how it feels to have too much food and wealth when fellow neighbors are perishing in hunger and thirst. Nobody chose to be born in a certain tribe. Watu waheshimiane and obey the universal law. #Election2017

Four Kenyan powerful men take secrets to their graves

IMG_0580

Four prominent Kenyans who died in the past two weeks wielded awesome power in government and influence beyond, but their lives were dogged by controversy.

All have been and will be eulogised and wept over, since speaking ill of the dead is frowned upon.

However, all four were adversary mentioned in the Truth Justice and Reconciliation Commission Report for various but interrelated gross human rights abuses.

On Friday, ex-Permanent Secretary Bethuel Kiplagat, a long-serving Ambassador and Foreign Affairs PS, passed away.

First of the quartet to die was Senator GG Kariuki, 78, powerful minister for Internal Security during the Moi era. That was on June 30.

On July 8, Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery, 67, died of a heart attack.

On July 11, ‘Total Man’ Nicholas Biwott, who eight Cabinet portfolios in his 28 years in politics, passed on, aged 77.

One thing stands out the lives of the four men: controversy.

GG Kariuki was buried on Friday at his Rumuruti home, Laikipia county.

Nkaissery will be laid to rest on Saturday.

The TJRC fingered all four, and others, in connection with massacres and rights abuses. All denied wrongdoing.

The full report has never been made public.

Foreign members of the TJRC refused to sign its lands chapter when some sections were removed and doctored.

It was presented to President Uhuru Kenyatta on May 3, 2013.

It has never been implemented.

NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga says it will be implemented if he is elected.

Take, for instance, Kiplagat who ironically chaired the TJRC .

He was linked to the Wagalla Massacre of Somalis in February 1984, which the United Nations once described as the worst human rights abuse in Kenya.

An estimated 3,000 people died, tens of women were raped and many houses torched by the Kenyan Army.

Days before the massacre, members of the powerful, secretive Kenya Intelligence Committee visited Wajir.

They included PSs Joseph Mathenge (Security and Administration), Bethuel Kiplagat (Foreign Affairs), David Mwiraria (Home Affairs) and J Gituma (Information).

It’s alleged members of that team authorised the deadly operation meant to instil ‘patriotism’ in the Somali community, particularly the Degodia clan.

The TJRC report recommended that members of the intelligence committee, including Kiplagat and Mwiraria, be investigated by the Director of Public Prosecutions to determine criminal culpability.

It recommended none of those officials should hold any public office.

Mwiraria, who later became Finance minister, died on April 13 this year, aged 79.

At the time of the massacre, GG Kariuki was Internal Security minister.

He was adversely remained in connection with the operation.

Separately, the TJRC recommended a probe of Kiplagat and Biwott, regarding the gruesome murder in February 1990 of Foreign minister Robert Ouko, who was shot, battered and burned.

Earlier in 2004, Biwott had been barred from travelling to the US over allegations of corruption.

“In addition, Dr Ouko’s colleagues in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs should be further questioned due to the likelihood of their knowledge of important events leading up to Ouko’s death.

“Ambassador Kiplagat in particular should be further questioned, given his role in the Washington Trip theory as well as his more recent involvement with the Sunguh Committee and the allegation he provided misinformation,” the TJRC report states.

According to detectives from Scotland Yard, Kiplagat told Ouko’s sister Dorothy Randiak that Biwott had a serious falling out with Ouko during a US trip in January 1990.

“Randiak said Kiplagat told her there was a serious disagreement between Ouko and Biwott on the Washington Trip, that all was not well between the two, and that Ouko had flown back separately from the rest of the Kenyan delegation,” the TJRC says

A delegation of 84 Kenyans was on an unofficial visit to the US National Prayer Breakfast with President George H W Bush and other world leaders when differences emerged between Ouko and Biwott.

“Since it was not considered an official state visit, President Daniel Moi was unable to get a private audience with the President of the United States. Ouko led a press conference and also met with some human rights organisations and US representatives on Capitol Hill,” the report says.

Quoting a report by Scotland Yard, the TJRC report said Ouko privately met Bush in the absence of the Kenyan delegation, which made close Moi associates, including Biwott, very jittery.

Ouko was murdered two weeks after his return from the US.

Nkaissery was also accused of gross human rights violations by TJRC in connection with the 1984 military operation in West Pokot county, Operation Nyundo.

Nkaissery, then an army major, is among senior military officers the commission accused of gross human rights violations, including torture, sexual violence and murder.

“In some cases, security agents starved animals, approximately 30,000 cattle, that had been confiscated, as a way of compelling their owners into surrendering guns,” the report states.

It recommended Nkaissery be investigated and possibly prosecuted for his role in the controversial operation.

Kariuki was separately put on the spot by TJRC for yet another massacre in Northeastern.

Although he denied knowledge of any deaths and rape in the 1980 Karatasi/Garissa Gubai Massacre, the report says Kariuki bears responsibility for the operation and ensuing atrocities, together with former Provincial Commissioner Benson Kaaria.

“The Commission finds the conduct of Benson Kaaria and GG Kariuki, both of whom appeared before the Commission, is consistent with official denials and deflections,” the commissioners concluded.

The violence occurred when government forces, saying they were flushing out gangster Abdi Madobe, set fire to Bulla Karatasi village, killing residents and raping women.

Then, they forcefully interned the populace at Garissa Primary School football pitch for three days without water or food, resulting in over 3,000 deaths.
