Quincy Timberlake: Kenyatta replaces Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei as the world’s most hated leader
By winning the elections with a “massive landslide”, Uhuru has reminded the world of when populist Adolf Hitler won the German election by landslide in the early 1930s. President Uhuru now qualifies to be compared with the most vilified leaders in modern history. He joins the ranks of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Jan Perón, Augusto Pinochet, Ayatollah Khamenei, Nicolae Ceaușescu, Robert Mugabe, Jacob Zuma, Sani Abacha, Eydaemas of Togo, Mobutu Seseseko and others. The same Uhuru once attacked Kibaki saying his government was in disarray and expressed his admiration for the leadership style of his mentor Daniel arap Moi. According to Uhuru, during Moi’s time, there was a clear authority and, as a result, stability.
Wikileaks has revealed that Uhuru is planning to wipe out tribes that pose a threat to his dynasty. This was revealed in what was supposed to be a private conversation. Fortunately, thanks to the people at WikiLeaks, we are able to know what many of our leaders really think away from the cameras, through the thousands of cables the anti-secrecy campaign group released on the Internet.
The cable dated May 25, 2007 offered insights into what kind of president Kenyatta would like to be. There is no doubt about it. The Jubilee administration is trying to take the country back to the days of Moi and Kenyatta Senior.
There has been no detention without trial, and the torture chambers have not been reopened. But the country has returned to the early 1990s when the press was routinely intimidated with illiberal laws, civil society actively confronted and undermined and any individual or institution that did not toe the State House line labelled a traitor.
The government has now embarked on totally sidelining all tribes associated with their challengers. These ones will be deprived of basic services and financial support. They will clamped on if they dissent. They will be reduced to a handful of kneel-down-to-me’ers. Suspicious foods will be transported to those opposition strongholds to create defects in their brains and bodies. Lab manufactured diseases will be transported through drinking water and their names will be replaced with the dead by the polling master.
What is a dictatorship? In Kenya, it is now officially a system in which there is no institution that is independent from the presidency. They are restoring to the President the powers that the Constitution took away from him. By having non-political Cabinet secretaries the President has been handed loyal servants who cannot question his decisions. We need to repeal that section from the constitution. Now even Deputy President is the latest victim of those enormous powers.
Even the jua-kali partisans are carefully watched because you are not sure that its members only discuss panels and scraps behind closed doors. Effectively, the jua-kali association must be put under the control of the Association of Associations which, in turn, should report to the Ministry of Associations.
In effect, that is what the amendments to the Civil Society Bill meant. And this is the precise import of the Media Bill. State House is saying that no institution will operate outside the ambit of the Executive and Parliament, which it dominates. Uhuru said he is not opposed to media freedom but he has to challenge negative media articles ostensibly because they have been used as evidence against him at the ICC.
Is this what Kenyans voted for? I don’t care about speculation on whether he was “validly” elected or not. What is true and of importance is that he jostled for power to oppress freedom and the ICC. The ICC noose in the horizon threatens many – the accused, the witnesses, their friends and their associates. Their main struggle now is to delay, postpone and at best, terminate the cases. If the country is not vigilant, the affected and the fanatical followers can cause problems aimed at ‘influencing’ the courts and international community.
Kenyans should now brace for fresh extra judicial killings and assassinations. Uhuru wants to survive by creating fear everywhere and silencing every upcoming leader and voice in a manner to achieve ‘an end which justifies the means’. He wants to create terror, maim, displace, grab, eliminate, deprive, exclude and incarcerate while his followers and supporters sing beautiful praises of the demigods. He wants to cause disappearances of his political foes (peoples’ leaders), assassinate and give unbelievable reasons for disappearances. This is why Media Bill is vital to Uhuru now – so that journalists cannot report the disappearances and assassinations of dissents.
Kenyans follow elections — and electoral disputes at the Supreme Court — much as football fans follow matches. That is why I formed a committee to rally the government on creating a Bill to erect Election Offences Courts. They stole my Price Control Act and then threw away my party’s manifesto when it sneaked in to their hands. They also stole my recommendation to amend ministries to departments and ministers to secretaries.
Kenyatta seems to be living under the misapprehension that the victory he secured was a mandate to change the nation’s laws fundamentally. If he wants to do that, he should go the whole hog and call a referendum on a new Constitution. The most troubling aspect of Jubilee’s attempt to impose authoritarianism on the country is the enthusiastic support they are receiving from their supporters. Very brain-fogged bunch of losers who don’t have Kenya at heart. Regardless of the suffering their fellow Kenyans go through on an hourly basis, they are stuck to the belief that it is only people from a certain region of Kenya that deserve to live on State House hill.
The public must not forget that dictators can only exist because the people allow them to. In the end, those very supporters will suffer when power changes hands as it inevitably will one day. I don’t support democracy for the sake of it, but I support the concept of constitutionalism. Seven in ten Kenyans agreed on a democratic and open system of governance in August 2010.
Kenyatta should not sneak dictatorship in through the back door. If he wants to be an authoritarian like Moi or Kenyatta Senior, let him call a referendum on a new Constitution. Shredding the current one and trying to rule by Executive fiat is dishonest and deceitful.
Deputy President William Ruto is a thoroughly frustrated man but is unable to take any action due to lack of an alternative political strategy at the moment. When Senator Charles Keter spoke about some issues the other day, he was summoned and told to go slow. Similarly, when I first raised concerns about this issue in Kericho they tried to subdue me but I told them off. If I must be a sycophant I can only be one for the people of Nandi Hills. What creates the most bitterness is how those who have gone public on the silent discord within the coalition are quickly summoned and cautioned.
A group of sycophants and well known corrupt personalities have crept back into government and are fast taking control of the President and his deputy. This is what I am opposing.
Kenya is being mortgaged to China, by saying that I mean the debt ceiling had been broken following the launch of the standard gauge railway construction by the President in Mombasa. The question is, why pay Sh400 billion extra for the new railway line then sack 100,000 Kenyans in the public service citing lack of money? Consider the diplomatic appointments. Strategic diplomatic positions in countries such as China, Japan, Britain, Korea and the US, among others, have already been filled by TNA. The creation of a tribunal to investigate the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) by President Uhuru Kenyatta is another wider plot to introduce the reign of dictatorship. This President’s move of suspending six JSC members is tragic and that it will erode the country’s democratic values. Jubilee has realised that the only way they can stay in power is by having a weak Judiciary which they can control. Dictatorships do not grow in a day. The pillar for democracy is always the courts. Once the courts are emasculated and interfered with, that is the end of democracy. What is happening in the Judiciary is a calculated move to ensure the Jubilee Government gets a user- friendly institution. Uhuru wants to rule like his late father, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, who used courts to oppress the public.
President Kenyatta must be careful not to undermine URP or the Kalenjin with 50 MPs from the community in the coalition. There is a massive walk out plan and that will bring down Uhuru’s dictatorship. On behalf of the PlaCenta Party of Kenya and Kenyans at large, I am watching.
