Citizenship is a NON-NEGOTIABLE “inalienable BIRTHRIGHT”. The state CANNOT, on its own, deprive a person of that birthright by way of revocation, suspension or enactment of any laws to that effect at any time. A birthright is an act of God and only the citizen, on his/her on volition can renounce citizenship, not state.
BBI – YES OR NO? UNPACKING THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BBI REPORT (Part 2 of 4) -Wrong Premise, Wrong Actors, Wrong Time!
The truth is the perennial fights are a direct result of STOLEN ELECTIONS that routinely rob the people their voices at the ballot box. Put another way, nobody has fought and or died because an opponent won an election, never ever! It is always because of stolen elections, specifically presidential elections. This is a phenomenon unique to Raila Amollo Odinga’s candidacy and it is also true that his victory has been stolen at least ONCE and so he and his supporters have a legitimate grievance.
A closer look at the report i.e. the underlying premise, findings and recommendations paint quite a different picture than how it has been packaged and it behooves ALL Kenyans wherever they may be globally to take a closer look at the report so they can make an INFORMED decisions. We do not want make fools of ourselves again, as the old adage goes, “fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” For way too long Kenyans have been wrongly indoctrinated to believe the government is the solution to their problems when in fact the opposite is true, the government is often the problem and the BBI epitomizes this.
Manipulation of census data translates into manipulation of national resource allocation and political representation, this means disproportionate and inequitable wealth redistribution of tax resources to population who otherwise do not qualify for such distribution and robbing those who rightfully deserve them, it creates resentment and economic disparity.
Preamble: Kenyans living outside Kenya also commonly referred to as “The Diaspora” are a key constituency that has proven a key asset to Kenya’s economic growth. Our collective contribution to our national growth can never be overstated. However, there is a major disparity between our economic contribution and the representation of community at the decision…
I mean what possibly could she steal from Kenya that would benefit South Korea? Military and or trade secrets? Kenya is a net importer of practically everything from toothpicks to Military equipment. So what exactly is left so secretive in Kenya that would Ambassador Mwinzi spying about? Nothing! To put this in perspective, if the United States had similar restrictions she wouldn’t be the superpower she is today, she wouldn’t have won WWII.
When it suits the government’s interests, particularly revenue collection, it is an emergency that we all must comply with but when it is your right such as voting and representation, it is a nuisance to them, you will wait for years, fight for it and still hurry up and wait. That’s how it works in Kenya folks. So for these reasons, I say to fellow Diasporians wherever you are: BOYCOT HUDUMA NUMBER, the government has boycotted you for so long as it is, let’s return the favor.
Ruto is a hardened unconvicted outlaw – “Ruto was charged in the Hague. Do you think anything else scares him?”, Dennis Itumbi – Ruto’s social media liaison and spokesman, when confronted with the possibility of his boss being criminally charged for corruption.
“A house divided against itself cannot stand”, Kenya has been the epitome of division for quite a long time courtesy of negative ethnicity and bad politics. President Kenyatta has a golden opportunity a golden opportunity to bridge the tribal divide in the country for the greater good of Kenya and to his credit has proactively taken affirmative steps in uniting the country by way of the now famous “handshake” with the “people’s president” Raila Odinga.
Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto’s “graduation” with a PhD in Plant Ecology on Friday December 21, 2018 from the University of Nairobi, hitherto Kenya’s preeminent and citadel institution of Higher Education, has elicited sharply divided reactions from foes and friends alike.
