Kikuyu Musicians Beating Civil War Drums Through Highly Inciting Jubilee Campaign Songs

By Ephraim Njega

I had decided not to post anything over this long weekend to allow our Muslim brothers and sisters enjoy a quiet Idd ul Fitr. However I feel constrained to respond to some grave developments in the ongoing election campaigns.

There is a group of Kikuyu popular gospel and secular musicians who are singing songs full of genocidal rhetoric as they campaign for the increasingly desperate outgoing Jubilee regime. It is a shame that even well respected musicians like Kamaru have succumbed to this nonsense.

Some young musicians such as Dennis Mutara are also shamelessly engaged in this crap. Don’t these guys owe anything to Kenyans from all tribes who have over the years supported their music?

As these people sing songs calling and characterizing other communities as enemies of Kikuyus does it occur to them that Uhuru Kenyatta’s son is married to a Luo?

The songs are creating a siege mentality and spreading baseless fears that if Kikuyus lose power they will be evicted from other parts of the country and that no Kikuyu will be employed in NASA government. Do these people remember the long list of Kikuyus who Raila has worked with in the past and continues to work with currently?

How many Kikuyus earn a living by working for government anyway? Is it not a constitutional requirement for all communities to work in government both national and county ones?

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission must take its work seriously. NCIC was formed to ensure that 2007/2008 never happens again. Kaparo must move with speed to arrest and prosecute these hatemongers. I am deeply pained, shocked and devastated to see this nonsense being propagated openly in what is supposed to be a civilized and advancing country.

Kikuyu supremacist ideology has no place in this country. No tribe is superior to any other. No tribe has any entitlement to monopolize state power in Kenya. A Kenyan from any tribe has an equal opportunity not only to aspire to lead Kenya but also to vie and be elected in that capacity. Nobody deserves the enemy label for doing that or for supporting such a candidate.

Jubilee leadership has lost it by sponsoring these divisive songs that isolate Kikuyus from other tribes. This petty and desperate campaign is going to backfire badly. Kikuyus are under no obligation to support Uhuru Kenyatta. They are completely free to decide whom to vote for without fear mongering and intimidation.

Every Kikuyu of goodwill must say no to these primitive and ethnic extremist songs. Remember the person who is paying these musicians has the resources to flee the country should a civil war break. Kikuyus interact and co-exist peacefully with other Kenyans daily in every part of this country. No one should try to sow seeds of discord for their selfish political ambitions.

Kenyans must know that ethnic supremacist ideologies are what caused the 1994 Rwanda genocide. I urge these mistaken musicians to think about Kenya and not what they are being paid, to do dirty bidding for politicians. The musicians must vacate this hate campaign immediately. Kenya will be there regardless of who wins the forthcoming general election. No politician is worth destroying this country for.

Below is one of the songs in question C/O Mutemi

Ten Reasons Why Jubilee Must Go Home or Kenya Will Go Under – Go into Receivership!!

President Uhuru dabbing in State House

President Uhuru Kenyatta shamelessly dab dancing at State House while Kenyans die of Hunger and lack of water.

  1. Jubilee has failed in the fight against corruption. Jubilee government has created a pervasive culture of corruption. Corruption is now a low risk high return activity. Today many people consider winning a government tender the same way they consider winning lottery.

Consequently, the culture of hard work has been replaced with that of working smart, which translates to raiding government coffers for self-enrichment. Government resources benefit a few connected individuals leaving the economy bleeding to death. This has increased poverty and inequalities hence affecting national security and stability.

  1. Jubilee has mismanaged and destroyed the economy. Under Jubilee meticulous government planning has been discarded and replaced with vendor driven projects. Vision 2030 has been ignored in favour of politically motivated projects with no social economic impact.

Jubilee inherited a functional economy but in just four years has run it down to the brink of collapse. Even the greatest Jubilee fanatic agrees that the economy is worse under Jubilee.

Fiscal discipline has been thrown out of the window. Budgets are bloated and the estimates based on whims rather than evidence. Consequently, looting opportunities have been created since a lot of money is left floating around for the vultures. From being one of the best managed economies in Africa, we are now a laughing stock and a cause for concern.

  1. Jubilee has destroyed the private sector. Jubilee inherited a vibrant private sector but through sustained poor policies, only a shell is left. In formulating policies, Jubilee has isolated private sector players often treating them as criminals rather than partners. The policy environment has been defined by flip flopping and chaos. As a result, the private sector is on the deathbed.

Hundreds of thousands of jobs have been lost and millions of lives ruined. Jubilee leaders continue to deny the financial challenges facing the country making it impossible for solutions to be found.

If these poorly thought out and reckless policies continue, the economy will enter into a brutal and devastating recession that will take years to reverse. Only you the voter has the power to stop this calamity from maturing.

  1. Jubilee has borrowed too much too fast. When Jubilee took over in April 2013, total public debt stood at KShs 1.9 Trillion. Today that debt stands at over KShs 4.5 Trillion and is rising fast. If this continues, we will have a public debt crisis within the next two to three years. Nearly all government revenues will go into debt servicing and the economy will grind to a halt. Economic undertakers the World Bank will step in and Kenyans will be taken through unforgiving austerity measures.

Furthermore, such fast borrowing denies future governments the chance to use debt for economic development. Jubilee has stolen from the present and the future. Jubilee claims it has borrowed for infrastructure development but out of the KShs 2.2 Trillion borrowed only KShs 1.1 Trillion can be attributed to infrastructure i.e. SGR-KShs 327 Billion, Roads- KShs 437 Billion and Counties Development-KShs 358 Billion.

Part of government borrowing has found its way into recurrent spending which is an unforgivable economic sin. Borrowed money has been stolen through corruption and the balance poured into vote hunting projects that may earn Jubilee re-election but will never produce a return for the country.

  1. Jubilee has destroyed institutions of governance. Incompetent leaders value loyalty over performance. This is why under Jubilee public officials feel no need to be accountable to the people. Jubilee inherited a functioning performance management system which it has destroyed.

The only performance required of public officials is to offer endless praises to the powers that be. No country can succeed without strong institutions. Personality cults and hosanna choirs for the country’s leaders are a ticket to a banana republic. Public officials spend more time worshiping Jubilee heads than in delivering services.

  1. Jubilee government is the worst run in history. This is probably the only government which has no scheduled cabinet meetings. The Cabinet has been meeting on an adhoc basis and for less than 10 times in a year. Past governments used to have weekly scheduled meetings.

As a result, the government is dysfunctional and top leaders have no idea what is going on in the country. This is why the country has been running from one crisis to the next with no relief in sight. The President and his Deputy are completely out of touch with reality. There is no way of monitoring or evaluating government performance. The planning and execution environment has been characterized by chaos.

Jubilee leaders prefer appointing illiterate tribal loyalists into public office instead of proven professionals. Under Jubilee only rubbish can rise to the top. The country’s top brains are wasting away as tribal goons and career failures circle around public resources like vultures to a carcass.

  1. Jubilee government has been very incompetent and insensitive to citizens’ needs. This government has treated Kenyans with a lot of contempt. It has been run with an elitist attitude that beggars belief. A doctors’ strike was allowed to run for 100 days. Nurses strike is on for two weeks and the President is busy campaigning without a care in the world.

Bandits have seized parts of the country and the government is unable to restore order despite investing billions in security. Life has become cheap. The government failed to plan for the country’s food needs resulting in escalating prices and stock outs never before seen in our history. Jubilee paints a tragic image of a government unable to govern.

  1. The government has prioritized politics above everything else. Since this government was elected it has spent over half of its life campaigning for re-election. Projects have been initiated with an eye on the election as opposed to their economic value.

People with political influence have been given a free hand to loot the country and to conduct themselves with impunity. Currently, the country is full of lawlessness because anyone who controls a few votes can engage in any crime and nothing can be done to them.

  1. Jubilee leaders lack moral authority. The Jubilee leaders’ path to power and wealth is not paved with hard work or solid achievements. They owe their success to favours, manipulation of the system and appropriation of state resources to themselves and their political cause. Their path to success is not one any parent can recommend for their children.

As a result, the leaders lack credibility and no one including their juniors take them seriously. Such leadership will take this country nowhere.

  1. Jubilee leadership has made Kenya a pariah state and disconnected it from the East African Community. Relationship with EAC states is so constrained that the President no longer attends heads of state summits preferring to send his deputy. Other EAC leaders see Kenyan leadership as hopelessly corrupt and a stain on the region. From once an anchor and leader state in EAC, today we are an untouchable mess.

Today Kenya is the sick man in the EAC region a tag once carried by Tanzania. Other EAC countries are choosing alternative routes for their projects to avoid contamination with corruption. Our status as a gateway to the region is at stake.

For these ten reasons you must vote Jubilee out. Kenya will not survive another Jubilee term. Don’t accord them an extra second in power. A vote for Jubilee is a vote against your future and that of your children. I warned you in 2013 and I warn you again. You have already received the first installment of suffering under Jubilee.

How Jubilee Government created UNGA CRISIS to make Billions to Finance Campaigns

MV Pinehurst

MV Pinehurst, a Philippine registered ship carrying up to 30,000 metric tonnes of maize sourced from Mexico docked at the Mombasa port on Thursday 11th May 2017.


Nothing exposes the world of Jubilee corruption like the almost instant importation of shiploads of maize just days after the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) published a notice setting the rules for importation of duty-free yellow and white maize intended to plug the huge deficit in the domestic market.

The story however doesn’t start here.

Ahead of August elections, with a sensitive NIS Report (whose leakage is the subject of thorough internal investigations at the spy agency with at least five personnel suspected summarily fired) revealing Jubilee must either ‘buy’ the election or prepare for defeat, Jubilee decided to buy the election.

In government, apart from Kenya Pipeline Corporation, no other sector makes quick money and in billions like price interference of basic commodities. Jubilee picked on Unga and Sugar. Let’s dissect how the strategy worked on Unga.

MV Pinehurst, a Philippine registered ship carrying up to 30,000 metric tonnes of maize sourced from Mexico docked at the Mombasa port on Thursday 11th May 2017 exactly a week after KRA opened the window for duty-free maize imports.

The move by KRA was ostensibly aimed at stemming the ‘biting shortage’ that has seen the price of unga maize meal nearly double in the past eight months.

Another 30,000 metric tonnes is reportedly in the high seas with the vessel expected to dock in Mombasa on or about 26th May 2017., an open reliable online portal that provides real-time data on the movements of ships and their current location in harbours and ports all over the world shows that MV Pinehurst departed Durban Port in South Africa the same day that the KRA Commissioner of Customs and Border Control Julius Musyoki published a notice lifting ban on importation of maize.

Was this a coincidence? No it wasn’t.

Maize importation is big business and the topmost baron is Deputy President William Ruto. Do you remember the ‘maize scandal’ that led to the sacking of Ruto by Raila during the tumultuous era of the grand coalition government?

A kilo of maize is going for approximately Ksh40 at Nyamakima Nairobi. MV Pinehurst is carrying 30,000,000 (yes, thirty million odd kilos of maize!!). The kill is mind boggling.

In this case, because of the desperation brought on by the artificial shortage, the seller dictates the buying price which could go as high as Ksh80 per kilo, plus handling and transport to NPCB stores which can easily take the price to Ksh100 per kilo. It has not been milled and packed so as to reach your local shop.

The movement of MV Pinehurst tells you the kind of state capture and abuse of systems under President Uhuru’s watch. Here, we see a president who has turned his gaze the other way as Kenyans pay the price of  Jubilee unscrupulous wheeler dealers, insider traders, international conmen, ghost suppliers, cowboy contractors, tax evaders and thieves of all shades who have high powered connections to State House, the Office of the President, Treasury, KRA, KPA  and at the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock & Fisheries.

Ordinarily, it takes an average of 12-15 weeks of transit time for a modern shipping vessel laden with cargo to sail from any of the numerous Ports in Mexico to Mombasa in Kenya.

This means MV Pinehurst left Mexico sometime earlier this year giving Jubilee wheeler-dealers enough time to create an artificial maize shortage, trigger price increases and then move-in with their imports to make a killing and raise instant billions for political campaigns ahead of the grueling 2017 general elections.

Either that, or the maize was sourced from South Africa and documentation switched in the high seas to change country of origin. In both cases, tax payer and Ugali eaters bear the extra costs. The spiral effect to the economy does not matter.

Jubilee is raising campaign funds by trading with the lives of Kenyans. And it doesn’t matter whether you think you support Jubilee or NASA; the bottom line is; we are all getting fucked, raw.

How Chris Kirubi stole from KENATCO, Uchumi and Kenya Airways to become a Billionaire

chris kirubi

To a generation of young Kenyans, Chris Kirubi is the quintessential self-made man: he is immensely wealthy and stylish, yet eschews the demeanor of a lady’s man stomping Kenya’s cocktail circuit with bevies of beauties in tow.

This picture-perfect perception is enhanced by Kirubi’s alter-ego, DJ CK, which he adopts on his Capital FM music blitz. Kirubi’s growing stature in business was affirmed recently when he was ranked by Forbes magazine as the 31st richest and most influential man in Africa.

Forbes said Kirubi struck it rich by buying small dilapidated residential and commercial real estates in Nairobi which he renovated and disposed off at a profit.

This, the magazine went on, transformed his fortunes and made Kirubi a business mogul whose estimated worth is $300 million (Sh2.4 billion).

Kirubi’s empire includes Nairobi’s International House, a 49 per stake in Haco Tiger Industries, as well as substantial stake at equity firm Centum and UAP Insurance – one of Kenya’s largest insurance companies – and construction firm Sandvik East Africa.

He also owns the DHL franchise in Kenya, and Capital FM, one of Kenya’s most popular radio stations.

After his Forbes listing, Kirubi subsequently told Drum magazine that he really did not know how much he was worth as numbers did not bother him; he was more concerned with what money can do.

Such philosophical contemplations contradict the 70-year-old bachelor who struts around the city in Italian designer suits with girls young enough to be his grandchildren.

“They know me personally,” Kirubi says of his tailors, which is what every Kenyan would say of their tailor.

While quite a few would say they know Kirubi personally, much fewer know how he made his money – beyond the official narrative that implies he picked cash with the ease of a farmer harvesting mango from a tree.

That may be so, only that Kenyans do not know on which specific tree he did the harvesting. What’s evident is that Kirubi’s big break came during his stint as manager with Kenya National Transport Company (Kenatco). This was a State parastatal established in the 1970s to offer logistical solutions to Kenya and the neighbouring countries of Uganda, Congo, Sudan, Burundi and Rwanda.

Kenatco was, however, transformed into a smuggling network by a group of politically-connected individuals in President Jomo Kenyatta’s inner circle.

The period between 1975 and 1976 provided a peak in smuggling after coffee market prices were spiked by frost that affected Brazil coffee. Smuggling hit fever-pitch as Kenyans jostled for coffee beans in the region – with Kenatco transport network becoming the centrepiece of the illegal operations.

Kirubi is alleged to have emerged from Kenatco a millionaire although the reason he attracted attention was not the alleged financial transformation but the foundering of the parastatal.

Kenatco was placed under receivership in February 1996, after it failed to service its loans and meet other financial obligations due to mismanagement. The genesis of its problems was a Sh22.4 million loan it was advanced by Industrial and Commercial Development Corporation (ICDC), ironically also owned by the State.

The loan was meant buy new vehicles to revitalise Kenatco’s fleet but by June 2008 the debt had skyrocketed to Sh368 million, despite the struggling company having paid back Sh26.3 million. It was against this background that ICDC appointed a receiver manager to run the company.

Kenatco, which once held great promise, has now made history as the only State-owned Corporation which has been under receivership for a record 16 years, exposing it to plunder and mismanagement.

At one point, Parliament was told of how some of its expensive Mercedes limousines were sold for a paltry Sh500. Kirubi was mentioned as one of the managers who had contributed to running down the company.

An outraged David Musila said in Parliament in June 2006: “Kirubi has been bragging how rich he is. He was responsible for the collapse of Kenatco but nothing happened to him. He was indeed given Uchumi to manage which [has now] faced similar problems.”

Interestingly, Kirubi was to become a major shareholder of ICDC when the Government released some of its shareholding, indirectly placing him at the helm of Kenatco, a company whose collapse he had earlier been accused of overseeing.

Uchumi Supermarket’s journey to the dogs followed a similar route. It was incorporated as a private company on December 17, 1975. Upon its incorporation, 51.5 percent of the stake went to the Government through 24.9 percent shareholding by Industrial and Commercial Development Corporation Investment (ICDCI), Kenya Wine Agencies Ltd (KWAL’s) 18.8 percent and ICDC’s 7.8 percent.

At the peak of its growth, Uchumi had 28 branches scattered across the country, employing more than 1,000 Kenyans. It became a public company in 1992 when it was listed at the Nairobi Stock Exchange.

When its fortunes dwindled despite the Government and the public injecting more revenue, Kirubi and 13 other senior employees of the supermarket were ultimately charged with defrauding the supermarket. They were charged before resident magistrate Stella Muketi on June 10, 2008.

They were accused of selling a piece of land on Aga Khan Walk in Nairobi belonging to Uchumi Supermarket at a paltry Sh147 million, although its true value was more than Sh400 million. They allegedly sold the land to Allgate Company.

After the sale, Uchumi supermarket was then forced to pay Sh1.7 million monthly rent to the new landlord. Kirubi was further accused of breaching public trust during his tenure at Uchumi as board chairman.

Uchumi supermarket has since been revived by a team led by Jonathan Ciano although Kirubi has been struggling to clear his name over the Uchumi saga.

Kirubi’s private enterprise, however, continues to flourish, as he told the Drum magazine.

Consider the ostentatious statement by the businessman: “If you are wondering in what ways Kirubi could possibly be a part of your life, they are many. Haco Tiger Industries give you cocoa butter in its many applicable glories. You write using Bic pen, use his bleach on your fabrics, rinse your clothes in his fabric softener before hanging them out to dry – using his pegs.

“You must have eaten his company’s rice, taken a mouthful of his oats, and shaved using his razors if you live in South Africa because, well, he is part of a company that is listed on the Jo’burg Stock Exchange that manufactures razors.”

One wishes Kirubi was as forthcoming about his journey to the top, and clarify whether the trail of failures in his public tour of duty were inadvertent mistakes that forged his business acumen, or deliberate sabotage calculated at lining the pockets of his Italian suits.

Kenyans have also raised eyebrows in Kirubi’s role in the recent KQ Losses

Raila Odinga’s Promises to Kenyans when NASA Government gets into Power

Raila Odinga

NASA presidential candidate Raila Amollo Odinga


Well, last night, the NASA presidential candidate Raila Amollo Odinga was on Citizen TV for an interview with Hussein Mohammed where he talked diversely but what caught the ears of many Kenyans is his pledge to tremendously reduce the skyrocketing cost of living every Kenyan is experiencing.

In an approach to reduce the cost of living, Raila asserted that his administration would lower the cost of basic commodities especially food by lowering production cost, subsidizing seeds as well as fertilizer in the first 90 days.

He further pointed out that urban rent rates in the country were too high for common Mwananchi to afford and therefore his government would cap urban house rent rates.

With respect to rampant corruption in the country, Raila stated that lack of committed leadership hindered the fight against corruption and that the body that is tasked with fighting corruption in the country – Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission [EACC] was damn too corrupt to even investigate or prosecute corrupt government officials. He assured Kenyans that immediately after ascending to power, his administration would reconstitute EACC and make sure that all individuals named in corruption scandals including Eurobond scandal, NYS scandal, Anglo-Leasing Scandal, Tokyo Embassy Scandal, Maize Scandal, SGR scandal, Mafya House scandal, Hustler’s Jet scandal etc were indicted.

We hope and pray that Kenyans will vote for change this August.

Uhuru Jubilee Moves to TEACH Kalonzo Muysoka a LESSON for REFUSING To JOIN Jubilee, Government FREEZES BANK ACCOUNTS

kibwana cx

Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana with Wiper Party Leader kalonzo Musyoka signing MoU at Kibwezi East which would allow him seek reelection under Wiper Party.

Kivutha Kibwana has accused the President of using the NGOs Coordination Board and independent commissions to intimidate NASA principals.

The board has shut down the Kalonzo Musyoka Foundation for forensic investigations, saying Sh50 million received from China could not be traced. It said the foundation could not account for a total of Sh146 million in donor funds.

But in an interview on a local vernacular radio station on Wednesday, Kibwana, who is Makueni Governor, claimed President Uhuru Kenyatta has a hand in the woes Opposition leaders are facing.

Regarding the foundation, the county chief said: “It seems [the government] is getting instructions from somebody with the aim of blackmailing Kalonzo.”

He noted the organisation has helped many needy children.

“These are the same people who say Kalonzo has done nothing for his community. They want to prove that by shutting down the foundation,” he said.

Kibwana said NGOs and commissions should be guided by the constitution instead of taking instructions from individuals.

“When these institutions begin to listen to the President or other people, they will not be fair in what they do,” he said.

NASA settled on ODM leader Raila Odinga as flag bearer and Kalonzo as his running mate for the August 8 general election.

The coalition also included Musalia Mudavadi (Amani), Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya) and Isaac Rutto (CCM).

NGOs board executive director Fazul Mahamad said Kalonzo risks arrest for suspected money laundering and diversion of donor aid by his foundation.

“The Board finds that there is sufficient cause to warrant forensic investigations into the affairs of the Kalonzo Musyoka Foundation on possible cases of money laundering and diversion of donor aid,”stated a letter signed by Mahamad.

“Subsequently, the board has already initiated a legal process of ascertaining the level of criminal culpability of the directors of the foundation with respect to their fiduciary responsibility to the laws of Kenya, the intended beneficiaries and the people of Kenya.”

Last evening, the WIper leader told the Star he will respond on Wednesday after seeing the letter.

Supporters of the National Super Alliance defended Kalonzo on social media
