What Next For Hon. Musalia Mudavadi?

Some people claim that Hon. Musalia Mudavadi has been left at a political bus station by some historical poli-entraprenuers. If the way current events continue to unfold, then perhaps one might be tempted to imagine that this could be a reality. I try to compare the Mudavadi on his last Moments while in ODM and the current Mudavadi; the difference is equivalent to day and night.


What Next For Musalia Mudavadi?

Since leaving ODM, Musalia has been portrayed as some ‘project’, a fact that looked real on wordings, but very different practically. Slowly by slowly, the people who were merrying with the Sabatia legislator have started their movements to where they feel at home. The biggest puzzle the whole world is now waiting see Mudavadi solve is seeing his name in the Ballot; come 2013 elections. This is the main agenda which drove him out of ODM.

Will He Succeed?

One thing I like about Musalia Mudavadi is his resilience and persistence. He is one man who follows his heart and all the courses he believes in. Right now, the only way for him through is through the trap set before him. He is still a force to reckon with come 2013 since it is time which judges everything. They way forward for Mudavadi is to be honest with himself; then to access and consolidate his support base. Then out of any inevitable political pact in future, he should bring on board his support base and use it as a bargaining chip.
Mudavadi is one of the very few  Kenyan politicians who cannot be written off come 2013. I bet on this.

The Kenya's Greatest Speech - A speech By Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga

It had been regarded as the Kenya's greatest speech of all time. A speech delivered by Rt. Hon Raila Odinga during the promulgation of the New Kenya's Constitution.

Here is the full speech .........
 
' SPEECH BY THE RT. HON. RAILA ODINGA, PRIME MINISTER OF THE REPUBLIC OF KENYA, DURING THE ENACTMENT OF A NEW CONSTITUTION FOR KENYA AT UHURU PARK, NAIROBI; AUGUST 27, 2010.

Your Excellency the President,
Your Excellencies Heads of State and Government
Your Excellencies the ambassadors;
Members of the diplomatic Corp;
Citizens and friends of Kenya:

Today, we mark the end of one journey, as we embark on the beginning of another.
On the Fourth of August this year, Kenyans stood one by one in the solitude of the polling booths and voted in favour of a new national Constitution. In that moment, so fleeting and yet so historic, decades of struggle for a better future were finally rewarded.

The Fourth of August will go down in history as the date on which we, the people of Kenya, formed a more united nation,  and established the groundwork for justice, unity and the full blessings of liberty for ourselves and for posterity.

No one could have thought that out of the bitter harvest of the disputed election and the violence that pitted our people against each other just two years ago, we would be witnessing today the birth of a national unity that has eluded us for more than 40 years.
Today, we close a long chapter in our history. We put repression, exclusion and heroic struggle behind us once and for all. We have opened a clean new page in our book. On that page, we begin writing the story of an equal and just society.

We gather here now to ratify the pledge we made to ourselves and to the world, that Kenya shall redeem herself and extend the frontiers of democracy and freedom. This freedom has eluded us for more than forty years. Each time we came close to attaining it, it slipped from our grasp.

Each time we missed it; ever-greater repression seemed to replace the justice we sought.
But a time comes in the life of every nation when citizens have to choose between the status quo and a future that is full of promise.

In dedicating this Supreme Law, we pay our respects to those who walked this land before us, who saw its beauty, and who fought for fulfillment for all its citizens.

We remember Pio Gama Pinto, Josiah Mwangi Kariuki, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, Alexander Kipsang Arap Muge, Masinde Muliro, George Anyona, Katama Mkangi, Jean Marie Seroney, Henry Okullu, among many others who struggled for this day to come but did not live to see it.
We honour Kenneth Matiba, Charles Rubia, Martin Shikuku, Wangari Maaithai, Chelagat Mutai, and the Young Turks of the Second Liberation who pushed us closer to this day.
These are but a few of the Kenyan patriots who sacrificed to make today a reality. At great risks to their lives, they challenged dictatorship.

They paid great prices to liberate our country from impunity. Collectively, we owe them a debt of gratitude. In the words of the late Sir Winston Churchill…. “Never have so many, owed so much, to so few…” We thank and honour our President, Mwai Kibaki, who has today signed into law what we endorsed on the Fourth of August.

In 1992, when multiparty politics were restored to our country, Mr Kibaki joined hands with the Opposition. Ten years later, he led our country into a new era and towards the Constitution that we now unveil.

We thank the Grand Coalition Government for pulling together to deliver this critical item of our National Accord. We salute the women and the youth of Kenya for their heroic participation in the rebirth of our Nation.
We owe gratitude to His Excellency Dr Kofi Anan, a true friend of Kenya, and the team of Eminent African Personalities who stood with us at our lowest moment in our history and helped us trace our way back into sanity.

We proclaim this new Supreme Law in the firm belief that lasting peace and security and prosperity for all can only come if we all enjoy freedom and justice as equals.
The promise of this new beginning will be challenged by our traditional enemies; corruption and negative ethnicity. We must be vigilant and stop corruption from stealing our future and negative ethnicity from weakening our nationhood.

To those in charge of public affairs, may public service be what it is; public service; not self-service. This new beginning must mark the end of shallow political partisanship and herald the start of mature competition among political parties.

To all the people of Kenya, I say, thank you for taking your destiny into your own hands.
Among us today are representatives of the international community, some of whom have stood with us in good and bad times as we have continued our search for these new laws. We thank you. This Constitution is our humble contribution to the culture of democracy and human rights worldwide that you represent.

It is our solemn pledge that never again shall the laws of our land divide and authorise the repression and oppression of our people.

I have never said this with a fuller heart: God bless you all, and God bless Kenya.
Thank you.'

The Kenya National Anthem - The Thread That Holds Us Together

Below are the two versions on our National Anthem ( Kiswahili and English Version).
The dreams and aspirations of our forefathers were coined in the wordings of the Anthem.

English Version of The Kenya National Anthem


O God of all creation
Bless this our land and nation
Justice be our shield and defender
May we dwell in unity
Peace and liberty
Plenty be found within our borders. 

Let one and all arise
With hearts both strong and true
Service be our earnest endeavour
And our homeland of Kenya
Heritage of splendour
Firm may we stand to defend.

Let all with one accord
In common bond united
Build this our nation together
And the glory of Kenya
The fruit of our labour
Fill every heart with thanksgiving.

 The Kiswahili Version Of the Kenya National Anthem.

Ee Mungu nguvu yetu
Ilete baraka kwetu
Haki iwe ngao na mlinzi
Natukae na undugu
Amani na uhuru
Raha tupate na ustawi.

Amkeni ndugu zetu
Tufanye sote bidii
Nasi tujitoe kwa nguvu
Nchi yetu ya Kenya
Tunayoipenda
Tuwe tayari kuilinda.

Natujenge taifa letu
Ee, ndio wajibu wetu
Kenya istahili heshima
Tuungane mikono
Pamoja kazini
Kila siku tuwe na shukrani


God bless Kenya

Miguna Miguna On Annan

Miguna Miguna responded to the recent Visit by Annan to Kenya in what appeared offensive. In his Exclusive reply via @Blowerswhistle on twitter and the Same Appearing at his face book account;  Miguna At Miguna...... The Details Are Here Below
'MY REPLY TO ANNAN
Rwandans died, Liberians died, Sierra Leones died, Iraqis died, Palestinians died, East Timoris died, Afghanis died, et cetera, under the watch of this hopeless eunuch, as secretary- general of the UN!
Kenyans and Kenya object (to) that pressure, 100 percent! Judicial authority is derived from the people of Kenya; and not from London or Washington D.C. Kenyans will have an opportunity to choose their leaders in a few months.· We must never compromise our dignity as a people and country, at the altar of slavish zombism, whatever the consequences; Kenyans and Kenya will never be ruled through evil scheming and machinations regardless of who is behind such like!· 
The ICC must behave and operate within the dictates of fairness, justice, international criminal law, et cetera, and ensure, at all times, to respect the letter and spirit of the Rome Statute and not be at the behest or political whims of a few evil, bitter, envious, jealous, malicious, hateful, and sadistic Western racist neo-imperialists.· 4) 
The great people of Kenya must refuse the choice of leader(s) that the Western racist neo-colonialists want to impose on them; the people of Kenya must decide on their own free will; the people of Kenya must be respected, unconditionally;· Let the people decide; let the great people of this great country, Kenya, decide their own destiny; kindly, please let the people decide on the kind of leaders they want!

From and IDP - To All Kenyans

Dear Fellow Kenyans,

I am writing you this letter from an internally displaced camp. I am tired of seeing these faces of gloom and despair surrounding me. Are we really Kenyans? Once able and successful families have been torn down and reduced to weak, mediocre and hopeless groupings. Do we really have a role to play in the society?

First, let me take you through a recent well choreographed and directed horror based Riverwood movie that we produced in the name of post election violence. We ran away from ourselves straight into darkness, where we got filled with confusion. While in the dark, we violently raped our women and sisters. What a shame! We violently and blindly turned against each other. We killed our sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, parents and grandparents. With zeal and energy, we looted from ourselves. I have constantly wondered what we will ever tell God on the Judgment day!

Our actions turned our beloved society into one family of orphanage and internally displaced persons (IDPs). Since then, we have grown in horror and fear. We no longer know what is wrong or right. I fear for our women and children. Yes, they are more vulnerable than ever. They are forced to live and grow without the love and guidance of  fathers. Fathers have been forced back to the kitchen, to burn their fingers in daily attempts to prepare meals. What story will we ever tell the next generation? That we allowed greed and selfishness to eat into our moral fiber. That just like Judas, we were quick to betray our holy and beloved land, Kenya.

Condemned we were, but privileged to have a second chance just like the prodigal son. Yes, we have a very very dark past. An ugly and frightening scene of post election violence. We were troubled, terrified, horrified and shocked. But that is all now in the past. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Let us be back to the table and learn to eat and feed each together. Equally, we have a responsibility over our East African neighbors. To set a pace and standard for them. We are blessed in terms of strategic location to serve them. This is a special gift from God.

We no longer live in the past. Our country has been re-born. We have a new constitution to guide and protect us. Let us preach unity and harmony. Peace and prosperity amongst ourselves. Let us all unite and build our institutions. They are our future. Let us stand up for each other and be the best that we can be to our society. Where there is  drought, let us be quick to take food. Where there are no homes, let us unite to construct. Where there is hopelessness, let us preach hope. Kenya is ours. In sickness and in health. In richness and in poverty. For better and for worse. Kenya has enough for all of us. United we shall always stand and prosper. But if we are divided again; then I am afraid that the world might not give us a second chance.

The Ugly Side Of Kenyan Politicians

Memories of Zack pushing his wheelchair 3912KM towards South Africa to raise KSh. 250,000,000 to build a Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Center in Nairobi has never left our minds. It was unbelievable that even after such deadly adventure, he was not able to meet the overall goal of raising the Ksh. 25M.
Sadly, just after only five years of sitting on the comfy chairs of parliament that cost Kenyan taxpayers KSh. 84M, These MPs have decided to prepare going home with a sweet send-off package of KSh 2.1Billion !!!!!!!!!! Horrible. This is like looting!!!!
N/B This amount is enough to build 8 Spinal Injury Rehab Centers in Kenya, Train 403 Doctors from Primary School to University, equip 34 Radio Therapy Units, Build Two National Level Referral Hospitals, equip Theatres for 100 Hospitals, Supply Infant Vaccines for 3 years. Its time to These members of parliament stop this madness.

The 5 Billion City Hall's Equity Loan Deal

In His Facebook Account Timeline, The Former Nairobi Town Clerk and current aspirant for Nairobi Governor Seat; Philip Kisia highlighted the truth behind City Hall's Equity Loan deal.                                                             
                                                                                   His Facebook post read that;
'City hall has firmly clarified that the Kshs. 5 billion loan transaction from equity bank was above board and economically sensible, and that it saved the council money. In a paid advertisement in the media, the council highlighted reasons why the loan was sourced (The Standard Newspaper 8/10/12).

 The council secured the loan
to pay statutory debts to LAPTRUST, LAPFUND, NSSF and NHIF that were attracting a 36% interest which could soon render the council insolvent. It was thus necessary that the council look for a cheaper way to service the debts and hence approached 7 banks out of which only Equity bank responded positively. Equity bank offered the council the loan at an interest rate of 10% p.a. 

However due to prevailing economic conditions, the Central Bank increased its base lending rate from 5.75% to 18% automatically causing Equity Bank to revise its lending rate to 24% as per banking regulations in Kenya. The 24% was still 12% cheaper than the 36% rate charged by statutory debtors. Contrary to negative speculation and adverse publicity, the loan was in the best interest of the council and those who initiated should not be vilified. '

Philip Kisia Has a dream to take Nairobi City to the Next Level. His past performance anywhere he has served has always been unquestionable. He always does things above board. Could He be the best Best bet for Nairobi's Governor Seat?

Register to receive email alerts as we present all the aspirants for Kenyan 2013 elections. Its time we all make informed decisions and not vote through the stomach.
