African Dictators Watch


Now that Mugabe is dead and buried politically. The following Dictators need to be overthrown.

  1.  Kaguta Museveni – Ugandans need to find a way to retire this old nut
  2. Paul Biya – Cameroonians pull your socks. fight this old fossil like your future depends on it. he has been in power since pope was a baby
  3. Nkurunziza – Burundi can do better than what this moron is offering
  4. Togo president whatever the hell his funny name is
  5. Equatorial guinea president

What will the Kenyan voter do?


There is an almost an agreement that the “easiest way to mobilize” the Kenyan voter is appealing to the voter “primitive quest for tribal supremacy”. The adage that voters get the leaders is they deserve is self evident. the only time that Kenya has successfully held elections/referendum on issues are may be during early days of post independence where the parties of the time mobilized around national issues such and during the recent referendum. But in the last 20 years all political mobilization has been based on tribal arithmetic. The way this works is not rocket science it is simple “leaders” from tribes with high registered voters make pre-election pacts usually dictated by who can bring the biggest number of voters to the table. After this is accomplished the two/three dominant “tribal groupings” face off on propaganda wars mostly aimed at consolidation the tribal coalition and then the political consultants are brought in to dress the coalition as a serious party with real agenda for Kenya but if you peel the layers of this organization you find nothing but a cabal with them aim of “tribal supremacy”.

To remedy this Kenyans have tried several haphazard measures that are not well thought out. First during the last regime of Moi a constitutional amendement was put in place requiring that a leader will need 25% of votes from majority of provinces of Kenya. the proposers of this amendent wanted to stiffle a situation where a tribal coalition can win an election by minority vote. this used to happen when then president would use his coalition of most “nomadic tribes” and other fringe tribes to get enough votes to win against other tribal coalition by a minority vote of less than 40% of the vote cast.  The 25% rule failed to correct this problem and so the political class decided to propose two more solutions requirement of 50% rule which is currently the law of land that is untested and requirement that a leader must garner 25%of all votes cast in the 47% counties the coming elections will the first test to this electroral law. The last solution was to

Live blogging Obama inauguration day 2009


8.10 Am watching NBC in USA

When you think about the story of Obama it is only possible because the Slaves Never gave the Quest for Justice and Freedom

The White Americans abolitionists too fought side by side to Liberate Africans from Slavery in the world.

The African Americans and Africans in Diaspora never gave up the fight to liberate Africa from Colonial rule. It through this struggle that Obama dad was given the chance to get an education in Kenya and USA

I am blogging today because my ancestors in Africa and USA fought so hard to give me this Chance. For this I am Grateful.

Africans in Africa embraced Education and other progressive things that they learnt under the White colonial rule

In Essence today is continuation of Our Struggle for justice, freedom, and dignity.

A call to Service to Kenyans


My Dear Fellow Kenyans,

Each year as is the Tradition here in USA every citizen is asked to serve his or her community on  Martin Luther King (MLK) Public holiday. This day celebrates the Great work of the civil rights leader MLK and the entire Civil Rights movement.  So this moring I have decided to ask my fellow Kenyans to use this year to be of service to Our Beloved Nation of Kenya.

It has been one year and a month since December 2007.  After elections there was a WAR (post election violence PEV) in Kenya pitting President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Supporters.   Kenyans worked very hard to ensure that the Post election Violence ended. We agreed that we are going to lay off our machetes, guns, arrows and bows for  truth and justice. When Kenyans asked for African union to help mediate a  power sharing deal we set to achieve these goals

  1.  End Violence
  2. Resettle Internally Displace Kenyans – this goal has not been achieved. Specifically in Rift Valley Kenyans are still not back in their Homes.
  3. Reform Kenyan Institutions that is Electroral commission, judiciary, executive arm and parliament. With NARA we are implementing ECK reforms, We are seeking a new constitution to enhance judiciary BUT we are yet to resolve the issue of executive for we still do not have an elected leader.
  4.  Seek Justice for PEV Victims – The waki report has laid down the ground work for establishing a tribunal to investigate the PEV further.
  5.  After implementation of 1 to three agendas kenyans were supposed to have new elections Elect a leader.

What is the way forward.

  1. PNU and ODM has to work day and night to ensure that a new constitution is in place this year.
  2. Once a New Constitution and Electroral Commission are in Place New elections both Presidential and Parliamentary Must be held.
  3. A Tribunal as Spelled out on Waki Report must be formed and Kenyans must support this tribunal
  4. All internally Displaced Kenyans MUST Be resettled. Kenyans must Seek Reconciliation.

 

What is the role of  Kenyans.

  1. Ensure that from Today we Unite for a common purpose and thus is to ensure that the aforemention NARA items which are outstanding are Implemented.
  2. We must resettle all Internally Displaced people
  3. We must hold the Executive, parliament and Judiciary accountable to any delay on implementing the outstanding NARA items

This is my call to service on MLK holiday.

For kenyans in Kenya Go out today and donate Food to the hungry kenyans or if you cannot serve your community.

Mugabe must be stopped at all cost


Obama and Hillary first test will be how they deal with the Mad Dictator of south Africa Robert Mugabe. Mugabe has moved from a liberator to the worst Human rights abuser of African this decade. Currently Zimbabwe citizens are dying daily from Cholera.

Bush Administratition was working with African Union and South Africa Development Council to implement power sharing deal brokered by Former S Africa president.

Mugabe has failed to honor this power sharing deal. The AU has said that it won’t intervene Militarily but will pursue diplomacy. China is blocking United Nations Security council from acting. What is left now is for USA or any other authority to act unilaterally and Deal with Mugabe. An overthrow of Mugabe is the most efficient way of resolving this Crises.

My hope is on Hillary Clinton to use her new position to push for Mugabe Removal

let us not allow mugabe to kill anymore.

Time the World unites against the African Mad Dictator

Africans Dictators in the 21 st century


The Top African Dictators in the 21 st Century

1. President Camara –  Note (Removed from power after being shot in the head by his bodyguard handed power back to Civilians )

  • The killer of Conakry in just less than a year the military rule has shown its hand too early by killing 156 protestors. United Nations has refered this
  • 

2. Mugabe –With Hyper Inflation, Cholera, Farm Evictions, Military abuse of human rights . Mugabe takes the cake as the most heartless of all senile dictators still alive. Time to retire or send him to an early grave is now.

3. Museveni

  • A benevolent Dictator who has rescued his country from over 20 years of civil war. His support of Genocide in Congo is well documented by United Nations. Presidential Elections are slated for 2011 and with latest Oil discovery in Uganda I wonder if Museveni will be ready to quit. Americans are stating that the oil reserves are as big as those of Saudi Arabia so Uganda is slated to be come either successful or Natural Resource Cursed Nation.

4. El Bashir – Sudan President 

  •  Responsible for Genocide in Darfur and is waiting for his day in International Court of Justice. Right now the Chinesse and Arab Countries are shielding him from arrest

5. Hosni Mubarak Egypt  Disposed on 2-10-11 by is general after a popular uprising- American Stooge of North Africa he has prevented Fundamentalist from taking Power. He is planning to handle over to his son illegally.

6.     Muammar al-Gaddafi – Libya – 1969 to present 42 years in power

7. Cameroun – Paul Biya – Been able to hang on to power for over 30 years. I wonder what the recipe is of keeping camerounians docile.
8. Kibaki – Stole elections in 2007 and is now a lame duck dictator. Hopefully he will be indicted by ICC for his role in Post election violence in kenya
9. President Obiang – Equitorial Guinea- his son bought a Masion worthy $25 million in USA from Stolen Oil wealth. A kenya banker in Washington was jailed for over 20 years for helping Obiang to Launder money via a bank in Washington DC

10. Omar Bongo Jr –

11. laurent Ggabo – Ivory Coast still hanging onto power even after losing presidential elections last year

12. Kagame – still hanging onto power after saving his tribe from Annihilation during rwandan Genocide of the 1990s

America these days


America These days

The state of things in this great country is not too great. The economy is shambles millions of families have lost their Homes to their lenders. 11 million workers are without a job. Companies are cutting down expenses meaning that wages are going to be flat this year no increases. The federal government is working hard to try to revive a dead economy which lost 7 Trillion dollars last year in the stock market alone, about 1 trillion in home values and there is other 58 trillion dollars of securities that no one understands whether they are valuable or not.

 

On Tuesday Obama will be sworn in as the new president, majority of people here are anxious, excited and eager to see him change our economic fortunes. He is proposing almost 1 trillion dollars in increased spending to help the economy.

In a nut shell it is going to be a wait and see year.

 

What is the Fate of Kenyans immigrants in USA?

Most of them are still employed since majority work in the healthcare sector as nurses, care givers, and other blue collar jobs which are still in demand.

The home owners have lost most since their home values have plummeted with some areas houses losing 20% of their values meaning that the ones who bought houses recently are paying for Negative equity.

There have been several high profile foreclosures within the community. However, majority of the homeowners are still struggling and making mortgages payments.

The new arrived Kenyans are having a hard time getting Jobs. It is tough out there. In my state there no jobs period.

Most kenyans are yet to change their spending habits.

 

 

 

Zimbabwe and Pan Africanism run Amock


 

I am still curious why Pan Africanists are quick to blame the WEST approach to mugabe problems and are now saying that Mbeki approach is the best. I was just reading the Pan African News Wire website and I was puzzled at how far the opinion of the Pan africans is from that of pragmatic individuals or the neocon ones.
http://panafricannews.blogspot.com/2008/07/zimbabwe-news-update-eu-softens-stance.htmldoes the Hatred of Neocolonialism sometimes drive Pan Africans to be irrational not that there is anything rational about Neocolonialism?Is Mbeki approach the Best Africa Could have Done for the People of zibambwe. Or this a case of too little too late.

Yaani it is amazing that now Pan African wires are full of “praises to Mbeki shunning of the “WEST”.

Mbeki is the guy who dropped this ball in my opinion if he had enlisted countries out SADC or he would have offered leadership in SADC then Mugabe would have not been bold in his dictatorship as he has been the last one year.

I think Nigeria “silent Diplomacy” on Taylor worked. But it only did so because Taylor did not have the Instruments of power to entrench himself and innoculate himself against the so called “silent Diplomacy”

 

My rumble is over let me know what you think on pan Africanism as it related to zibambwe? is it a Knee Jerk reaction to neocolonialism or not
