    Timberlake: If CORD won’t, I’ll overhaul “Gikuyupithecus” econolitical establishment.

    Democracy is not about holding elections, simply to choose which particular representatives of the elite class should rule over the masses. True democracy is about equalizing the economy and giving economic power back to the majority. Unfortunately in Kenya, its democracy is its form of government that substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few. To make democracy work in Kenya, we must be a nation of participants, not simply observers as millions of sycophants do. Why grumble all the time about a government that simply rose to power due to lack of your vote? One who does not vote has no right to complain.
    I reject bad leadership. I reject tribalism. I reject mediocrity. I reject mis-performance. I reject a mismanaged government! My potential is more than can be expressed within the bounds of my race or ethnic identity. Kunitusi jaLuo au kihii ni kama kumchezea python mwenye njaa ngoma. Nitakukujia tu na nitakumeza mbichi. Singing the national anthem eti Ee Mungu Nguvu Yetu won’t help national integration, and neither will exhorting tribalists to end tribalism work. Pledging loyalty pledge to the president of Kenya is a trick gikuyupithecus has invented to force all other 41 tribes to pledge their loyalty to gikuyupithecus. I’m still not convinced as to how gikuyupithecus will ever grow up to be non tribal, or professors get educated enough to stop being tribalists. Maybe our salvation lies in the children we are busy telling how Kikuyus are evil in the name of democratically electing a president. The solution to negative ethnicity/political tribalism will only be apparent when we realize where the problem lies and decide to deliberately deal with it. In my considered opinion the problem lies with our conceptualization and practice of Kenyan democracy. To be sure, there is no one universal definition and practice of Kenyan democracy. Indeed, democracy as practiced by gikuyupithecus and all the other great democracies in the world differ a great deal.
    Contrary to the Westernized popular belief that Kenya is a “model democracy”, it is one of Africa’s most dysfunctional democracies. It shocks me as a presidential contender that some OECD countries refer to Kenya’s country information while assessing several issues especially on special humanitarian grounds. Kenya is unquestionably, the world’s most ethnically unequal society. President Uhuru Kenyatta’s democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage.
    The PlaCenta Party of Kenya party is campaigning on a platform of four pillars, designed to democratize the economy and overthrow the economic legacy of gikuyupithecus apartheid. First, expropriation of land for redistribution amongst the masses. Second, equalization of all 42 communities and fair distribution of wealth and job opportunities based on ethnic employment quota system for the benefit of the people. Privatization of security services per ethnic population with bill footed by tax payers (in the meantime all police agencies reforms and re-training will be offset), sustained and consistent free education and, finally, affordable health care for the economically besieged lower class.
    The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all. The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship you don’t have to waste your time voting. And that is what happened to Kenya at the last elections. So dictatorship at its best is being experienced raw and dry by both ignorant and knowledgeable Kenyans.
    Nobody and nothing will stop me on the road to strengthening democracy and ensuring human rights and freedoms. The equitable redistribution of land is the first pillar of the PPK’s manifesto. Something is fishy about this Nyumba Kumi initiative, very fishy. Under that “Nyuma Kumi”Act, non-Kikuyus are not allowed to own, or even rent, land outside designated native reserves. A Luo cannot own land in Kikuyuland, but they want to own land elsewhere. We shall look into that. By 2007, some 87 percent of agricultural land was in gikuyupithecus hands. Precious little has changed during the intervening fifty years. One exception is that non-Kikuyus in rural areas have lost 6,000,000 jobs since “independence”.
    At face value, the Placenta Party of Kenya’s call for agrarian revolution may appear to be simply about land. But, it is about so much more. For non-Kikuyus, land is not merely land. Land is a place to be born, a place to grow up, a place to call home, and a place to be buried. Land is a source of food, a livelihood, and an asset to bequeath to our next generations. Above all else, land is a source of Kenyan pride. Land is never merely land.
    Look at it from this angle: A potent energy superpower, Russia had thought that it could use its status as the world’s largest oil producer and biggest exporter of natural gas through cross-border pipelines to intimidate and quite literally bully Western powers into submission over Ukraine. The mere suspicion among oil and gas traders that the country’s president would turn off the taps on the thousands of kilometers of pipelines that snake their way from fields in Siberia’s steppe to export terminals and urban consumers in Europe – in retaliation for economic sanctions imposed by the US and Brussels – had been enough to keep energy markets artificially frothy.
    The risk premium on Russian supplies that had inflated oil prices came at a time when many experts were beginning to warn of too much crude sloshing around on world markets. US has huge stockpiles of oil stored in the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). Set up in 1975, the reserve was intended to provide at least 90 days’ worth of imports to protect Americans from the kinds of intermittent “oil shocks” that two years earlier, during the Arab oil embargo, had seen petrol pumps run dry.
    The reserve, which is held in huge tank farms across America, now contains 700 million barrels of crude, enough to meet the entire world’s oil consumption for almost eight days. Most of it was accumulated at an average cost of about $US30 per barrel – a significant discount to current prices. Aside from making a big profit, releasing oil from the SPR would be one of the American government’s most effective strategies to nullify Putin’s “energy weapon” and humble the Russian economy further.
    This would not be the first time that Russia has had the “oil weapon” turned against itself. In 1986, Saudi Arabia gave in trying to keep oil prices stable after the Kremlin increased oil production at its expense.
    Riyadh was subsequently forced to reduce production in order to keep prices stable. Once the kingdom began increasing production in 1985 and 1986, oil prices collapsed from around $US30 per barrel before bottoming at $US10.50 per barrel in March 1986. The result of this was a massive loss of revenues for the Soviet Union, and it most likely played its part in the Soviet disintegration a few years later in 1991.
    However, Putin appears to have forgotten the lesson of his fallen Soviet comrades of the old communist order, and in meddling with world oil markets, he may have laid the foundations for his own economic demise.
    This is what we shall do to deprive the gikuyupithecus of power and wealth concentration. Every year, wealthy Kenyan shareholders repatriate billions of shillings from Kenyan public coffers to Western countries in the form of rent, dividends and profits. Nationalization would channel money towards building bridges and clinics at home, as opposed to filling Swiss bank accounts abroad. Unlike the latest brand of KANU-the Jubilee Alliance, the PPK will put the interests of local labour above foreign capital.
    The PPK is the party of the poor, and if given power by the electorate, it will do what the ruling “KANU” has failed to do since 1963: provide economic freedom for the poor majority, at the expense of the predominantly gikuyupithecus capitalists. These poor Kenyans have not started living until they can rise above the narrow confines of their individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. In this pretext, “KANU” means the Jubilee Alliance who are all KANU bowels masquerading as ‘new and changed’ people but deep inside still continue to unleash KANUism tendencies.
    Despite fifty years of Kenyan democracy, gikuyupithecus-owned companies still control 75 percent of Kenya’s stock market. It’s the second largest concentration of wealth and power on earth. Today, Kenyan and other East African media demonizes me Quincy Timberlake, the PPK’s commander-in-chief, because I am the most outspoken proponent of economic justice. It is no surprise, considering my party’s ideologies threaten the economic stability of some of the most powerful African capitalists in the world.
    As the MR WOLF, I’ll turn these hyenas into my sheep. They are used to violent ways since their youthful days in KANU. This time I’ll herd them and refund them their democracy “wolf’s way” my fellow Kenyans. According to them, democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. This is what those headless chickens must know, It’s not the voting that’s democracy; it’s the counting. We need a system where we vote and personally count with media broadcasting live updates. Electronic and mlolongo systems are a dupe in the box. To me, faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people in Kenya.
    I believe in an Aquatic Revolution. It is a non-violent revolution but governed by the Bill of Rights in the Kenyan constitution with the exclusive right to protest and demonstrate peacefully. How the Kenyan Police translate this is their own problem. Any typical Kenyan revolution must have three stages: political, agrarian and economic. The KANU regimes have failed in all.The KANU regimes of KANU, NARC and Jubilee liberated Kenya politically from the colonialists, but economically the ruling party which camouflages its colors at every election by forming other new parties shackles the majority by presiding over its monopoly of bourgeois capitalism.
    Under the KANUs parties (KANU, NARC and Jubilee), corruption is booming and the economy is stagnating, at a time when the rest of Africa is starting to boom. The PPK has vowed to tackle corruption by pledging to do away with Ministerial cars and houses. All PPK parliamentarians will be forced to use public hospitals, private cars – although compulsory security detail will be offered – and send their children to public schools.
    Kenya is East Africa’s most powerful nation. However it is also the region’s most economically colonized nation. Therefore, a PPK election victory would not only democratize and decolonize Kenya, it will encourage other African nations to do the same.
    If the current and latest edition of KANU-the Jubilee Alliance does not deliver the goods, then the people must do to it what the South Africans have done to the apartheid regime, Truth is, the Jubilee government has failed the people of Kenya. The current ruling party has been thoroughly co-opted by neo-liberal, big business. It clearly no longer represents the interests of the poor and middle class. PlaCenta Party of Kenya is now the party for progressive Kenyans to support.
    I am ready to be held responsible for naming this bunch, “Gikuyupithecus.” In fact, I am the source of the brand name. Yes, they are known as the Gikuyupithecus Nyumbawamumbipithecus, So selfish, self-centered, tyrannical and believe it is only them that God betrothed Kenya. We will wipe them out econolitically.
