6 TIMES BEATING

Contrary to popular perception, today is Raila’s sixth stab at the Presidency.
First was in 1982, when he organized a dumb Coup attempt. In this first attempt, 389 Kenyans lost their lives, 407 are still unaccounted for. Property worth billions was destroyed and the Kenyan Economy faced a recession from 1983 to 1984 when we saw yellow maize for the first time.
Second was in 1997, when he was walloped badly in the polls. However, after the polls, instead of joining the opposition in order to monitor KANU’s final five years- Raila joined KANU in the massive looting in KANU’s final years. During his Cooperation with KANU, massive amounts of public funds were lost. It is during this period, mega corrupt deals in the energy sector were mooted under Raila, who was the energy minister. This is the period he became a billionaire.
Third was in 2002. He had signed an MoU with Kibaki to be handed over power through the backdoor as powerful Executive Prime Minister. Kibaki did not hand over power- as a result he started a very long drawn campaign against Kibaki. This caused major economic issues.
Fourth was the 2007. This time he started a full throttle hate campaign against the Kikuyu community. He managed to convince his followers to see the Kikuyu as the cause of all their problems. We all know the outcome of the hate campaign.
Fifth was in 2013. As PM, he had the power of incumbency. But he run the most incompetent campaign in history. He lost badly to Uhuru. He started a hate campaign against Jubilee, the impact can be seen in an army of hate filled followers even on Social Media.
Today, is his Sixth stab.
Ile kuanguka ata anguka Mara ya sita…ita sikika hadi juu ya Mt Kilimanjaro.

GIVE US PEACE

It all started at the Hague. Condemned and watched by millions, the man spoke to defend his life. He was not guilty. Glued to the Tvs whatever the make, large or small , flat bellied or an artefact like the one I grew up watching, the son of Jomo stood like a phoenix rising from the smelly ashes of conspiracy and fault fixing. He had bagged it. Suddenly, he dropped his fathers legacy. A leader was born. The world watched in dismay, shock and sense of pride as a fairly young leader proved to the world that he was the true son of the magnanimous Jomo Kenyatta. He put Kenya on the world map. Even the Queens counsel nodded in appreciation. His clients path on the global stage was cut.
Up and up he soared. He was president elect. Zero violence despite the unguarded attempt by his detractors to malign him. He held Kenya peacefully as the supreme court declared him democratically elected. The world was now alert. A new African order was inevitable. The naysayers of ‘consequences have choices’crawled back to nothingness. The losers court.
He pitched on like a season King. After all, he knew the corners of state house all too well. You simply don’t play with a child who played hide and seek behind a flagged Mercedes Benz. He has no hunger to kill for power. He has no thirst to hurt anyone. It’s not his thing. He leads from the seasoned hand of a previous coach.
Uhuru Kenyatta has consistently staged his worth to the world powers at ease. He brought Obama here dining with him on Kenyan soil. He brought the Pope. Our prayers were interceded locally. Netanyahu and his lovely traffic holding dog graced the land. We don’t need to put small letters in a wall in Jerusalem. The Japanese chose this destination for their events. This is not the Kenya we knew. This is a new way. We matter. The son of Jomo deserves another 5 years. Ask me why?
This week in Italy the high flying president is soaring. He does it for Kenya. Like Kemboi does that dance after his steeplechase race, the son of Jomo is doing it for us. At the G7 he spoke for Africa. He who was thrown under the bus by Raila so that he could craftily pick power. I stand with him once again. I am proud of you my president.
Raila, this is me being objective. Where is your manifesto? What is your economic plan? How well defined is your youth agenda or is it all painted in unga? What is your women empowerment plan? How many education plans have you run for disadvantaged girls in Kibera? Give me the numbers for Bondo too while you are at it.
Raila, this country is headed for economic development. This country is on the global map. This country is youthful and progressive. Like a nubile girl who cannot be defiled by an angry old man who has no plan to elevate her. This country needs a politically mature, well educated and strategic leader who can sell it’s economic dreams to global decision makers. I doubt your accent, unga addiction and clenched teeth as you speak can deliver us. I retire you gracefully. Time is up. Let Uhuru be our ambassador. You know it too well. He’s the younger lion. He is nailing it. Even the seasoned bull knows when the son is the new hero in town. Give us peace.

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s speech at G7

STATEMENT BY HIS EXCELLENCY HON. UHURU KENYATTA, C.G.H., PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF KENYA AND COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE DEFENCE FORCES DURING THE AFRICA OUTREACH MEETING AT THE G7 SUMMIT IN TAORMINA, ITALY 27TH MAY, 2017

May 27, 2017 In Statements and Speeches

Distinguished Guests,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

First, let me thank you,Prime Minister Gentiloni for the warm welcome and gracious hospitality extended to me and my delegation.  I also thank you for according me the opportunity to address this distinguished gathering.

 

Excellencies,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Africa is the world’s new frontier for trade and investment.  Current indications are that Africa will have business opportunities worth $5.6 trillion by  2025.

Across Africa,there is a rising tide bringing with it new national and transnational infrastructure; a better-educated labour force; a youthful, dynamic population; a diffusion of technology; and, most important, the true democratization of the continent.

A rising tide lifts every boat. We now see the emergence of business clusters that stimulate innovation,the creation of new businesses, and real growth.

That’s why our returns on investment are some of the highest in the world,and that’s why members of the G7 will find, as others have found, that African markets are well worth their interest.

Indeed, right across the continent, opportunities beckon. To seize them, we will have to work together. The rewards are beyond calculation. A freer, more prosperous Africa is a more secure Africa. A freer, more prosperous Africa is a vital partner in solving some of the world’s most pressing problems: poverty, immigration, climate change, terrorism. This, Ladies and Gentlemen, is the time to put Africa’s aspirations at the heart of your plans.

Now, the continent’s transformation is contingent on innovation.  That’s why we have strengthened connectivity through the Smart Africa initiative,putting ICT at the center of our development agenda.  That’s why the continent is developing an ICT policy and infrastructure to support one seamless digital market, to serve a billion people.

I need not tell you, Ladies and Gentlemen, that Kenya is a celebrated pioneer in ICT innovation in Africa. We have seen for ourselves the transformative power of innovation,as the Internet and mobile telephony have diffused power to networks and individuals.

Our people have proven enthusiastic innovators,enriching our democracy and development.  In turn, the world has learned to appreciate to the energy and innovation of our young people, the spear-point of our development strategy.

That energy and innovation, combined with a strong ICT backbone, with infrastructure,and with an open regulatory and policy environment, has unleashed creative solutions, transforming lives.

The list is long and exciting; I’ll cite just three examples.  M-Farmis a mobile platform for farmers:  with the touch of a button, they can find prevailing prices for their produce.

Ushahidi(Swahili for testimony) is a ground-breaking interactive mapping tool, now used across the world to crowd-source information in elections and emergencies.

And then, of course, there is M-pesa,the mobile money platform that has brought financial access to millions who were left out of the traditional banking sector: these days, nine in every ten Kenyans access financial services through it.

These innovations, and others, have made Kenya more dynamic and resilient; they have made Kenya more investor-friendly; and they have made Kenya the hub of East and Central Africa.

I said that the Internet and the mobile phone had diffused power from states to networks and citizens. This is all to the good.

We are a democracy in a tough neighbourhood: our success will enlarge liberty;it will push back extremists bent on destroying democracy; and it will give many millions of our people an even larger stake in a stable global order.

Naturally, that success will depend largely on our own efforts, but the partnership and solidarity of the G-7 countries remain invaluable.

That, Ladies and Gentlemen, is the power and promise of innovation and cooperation across borders. But we must also consider recent painful events in Manchester, which reminds us that innovation and globalization have a dark side.  Far cheaper communication, and the movement of peoples across the world have given terrorists an ideological and operational reach that was unimaginable until very recently.

Terror presents a common threat. It demands a common response. Together, we can meet that threat. Indeed, we in Kenya, in partnership with many of you,have encouraging results to report. We have stopped attacks; we have unravelled terror cells; we have shared intelligence; we have saved lives.

But while intelligence and policing remain critical,we in Kenya believe the first weapon in this war is democracy.

Our people are free: free to choose their government; free to make their views heard; free to start and grow a business. That is the answer to the call of radicalism and violence. Only democracies can correct the abuses of power that breed the grievances on which terror is fed. Only democracies under the rule of law can give each citizen an equal voice in the making of his country’s laws. And only democracy can produce the broad prosperity which forestalls division.

In truth, then, only free peoples in control of their destiny can win an enduring victory over the nihilism of the terrorists.

That is why we are proud to be associated with you,the G7, as a beacon of democracy and the rule of law.  We believe this is the time for a new alliance of democracies to stand together against the forces of terror.

And that, Ladies and Gentlemen is why I wish to once again thank you, Prime Minister Gentiloni,and all present, for working closely with Kenya and Africa, for the peace, the prosperity, and the freedom that all our peoples deserve.

THE TYRANNY OF LIES: RAILA BEATING THE DRUMS OF WAR!!

Pro. Mutahi Ngunyi

Raila is beating the drums of war. Let me explain. For starters, he has told us that the government will rig this election. And that IEBC is the government and the government is IEBC. But this does not worry me.

What worries me are two pointers to the ‘coming war’. One, Raila has told us that if he loses, he will not go to court. He will go direct to the court of public opinion. And the people will decide whether the election was stolen or not.

If they decide that the election was stolen (which they will do anyway) then Raila will be declared the ‘People’s President’. Following this declaration, they will use the First Article of the constitution that states “…all sovereign power rests with the people”.

On the basis of this Article, they will then swear him in. And should this happen, it will be a declaration of war. Two, Raila has insisted on having a parallel tallying system. And the question I ask on this is the following: Will he use this system to declare Uhuru Kenyatta the winner? The answer is zero! He has put up this system to declare himself the winner, whether he wins or not.

The point here is simple: Raila is not interested in the election. He has the results already “cooked” in his tallying centre. And he can announce them tomorrow if he wants to. To him, he won the election the day he was declared the National Super Alliance (Nasa) candidate.

August 8 is just an annoying event. But there is one more thing. He has already told us how many votes he will garner. He calls this the “10 Million Strong Campaign”. His parallel tallying centre has therefore been programmed to ‘cook’ a figure close to 10 million votes. And since he has conditioned our minds to believe his political ‘lies’, we will entertain this ‘cooked’ figure.

What the country has not done, though, is to interrogate Raila’s “Tyranny of Lies”. Let me begin with the “10 Million Strong” Lie. I must admit that it is clever. And the idea is to ‘normalise’ the rigging lie, the lie about the tallying centre and the lie about the “People’s President”. If this fake president is elected by 10 million people, he will be presumed legitimate!

The “Tyranny of Lies” will have won the election. But to break down the “10 Million” lie, I took time off to study five elections. I examined the elections from 1992 to 2013. And I have the following submissions to make.

One, Kenyans vote along ethnic lines. There is no point cheating ourselves. In the 2013 election, 95 per cent of the Luo Nation voted for Raila; and 91 per cent of Gema voted for Uhuru. This is a statistical fact.

Two, it is difficult to explain the Luhya Nation using science. Their voting patterns are not predictable. As such, they are not ‘bankable’ until you lock them in the ‘bank’. Take 2002 for instance, because the Luo Nation did not have a stake in the Kibaki coalition, their turnout dropped to a record low of 53 per cent.

However, the turnout drop for the Luhya Nation was worse. Although they had Kijana Wamalwa as Mzee Kibaki’s running mate, they did not care. Their turnout dropped from 68.2 per cent to 39 per cent in the 2002 election.

If they did this at a time when their candidate was running mate, how will they behave if their stake in Nasa is zero? We will discuss this scientific puzzle of the Luhya Nation another day!

Now I must return to the “10 Million” lie of Nasa. If you take the last five elections as case studies, we must conclude that the average voter turnout will be 69 per cent or more. The IEBC register shows that there are 5.58 million Gema votes; and 2.32 million Kalenjin votes. This gives Jubilee a total of 7.9 million votes, if ethnic voting is a fact.

The three communities of Nasa include 2.22 million Luo voters, 2.13 million Kamba voters and 2.56 million Luhya voters. This adds up to 6.9 million votes.

Put differently, Jubilee is starting this campaign with 7.9 million votes in the bag and Nasa’s bag has 6.9 million votes. And you can counter-check this with the IEBC register and the National Census for credibility of my figures.

If voter turnout is 69 per cent, generated as an average from the last five elections, these numbers are bound to change. Jubilee’s actual votes fall from 7.9 million to 5.96 million and those of Nasa fall from 6.9 million to 4.5 million. And this is because of an average voter turnout of 69 per cent generated from five elections. If this average is acceptable, therefore, and Nasa is starting its campaign at 4.5 million votes, how do they jump to “10 Million Strong”?

And how do they get there with voter apathy in Ukambani and Luhya country? To do so, there has to be two extremes. One, Raila has to convince all the Gema voters to follow him to Kibera. If he can do this, he will add 4.1 million votes to his 4.5 million votes.

This will only add up to 9.6 million votes. Two, Raila has to convince the entire country, including the entire William Ruto stronghold and bwana Ruto himself, to follow him to Kibera. This must be done in two months.

If he does it, he will add 4.9 million to his votes. This will give him 9.4 million votes. What is my point here? Raila’s base is worth 4.5 million votes only. This has potential to grow to 6 million votes.

But if it grows to 9 million, let alone 10 million, then his tallying station will have ‘cooked’ the figures. This will mean that the entire Gema nation voted for him or the entire country, including William Ruto, abandoned Gema and voted for Raila. And this is why Raila is a master of ‘Tyranny of Lies”. But now you must allow me to show a little kindness to Raila.

All he wants is to get into government as President or Prime Minister. And in my considered opinion, he will force his way in. I will not be surprised if we swear him in as Prime Minster in October. But I could also be wrong. Maybe Kalonzo Musyoka will betray him and become Prime Minister instead! This election is downright complex! -Courtesy of The People Daily.

Strategic Economic Analysis - Man at board.jpg

THE hullabaloo about Kenya’s debt is an inconsequential nondescript shenanigan propagated by armchair economic analysts with papers that cannot even add value to merry-go-round chamas; but flood television screens shouting how debt to GDP ratio above 50% is unmanageable. Really? Isn’t this a D- mentality? Check this :
Japanese debt 200% of GDP
US debt 104% of GDP
Germany debt 71.2% of GDP
Egypt debt 85% of GDP
British debt 89.1% of GDP
Kenya debt 52.8% of GDP
These economic socialites, drunkards of partisan political inclination are contracted deliberately to pollute the minds of uninformed middle class, learned but ignorant!!!
