PRESS STATEMENT ON UHURUâ€™S DIRECTIVE TO PAY ANGLO LEASING
The Presidential directive to the treasury to pay Ksh 1.4Bln in honor of court rulings in UK and Switzerland on Anglo-leasing contracts exposes the greatest irony of our time, a black hole in our countryâ€™s financial history. This is same president who rallied the whole African continent against another foreign court called ICC then chanting right wing patriotic catch phrases like â€œthis is neo-imperialism, Africa deserves respect bla bla blaâ€
Even the argument of the president itself in his State of The Nation address was uninspiring, flimsy, lame and jaundiced in its pitch, form and tone leaving sane Kenyans deceived, dissuaded and discontented. For heavenâ€™s sake, President Uhuru was a chair of Parliamentary Accounts Committee a while back and knows various exposÃ©s of the committee document names of those who dragged Kenya into this monumental scamâ€”why not auction their property like it happens in china and the proceeds paid off, why the expediency and zeal to order for these payments even after his deputy had publicly proclaimed that this was going to be a sole discretion of parliament and after the Finance secretary attempts to lobby Jubilee parliamentarians to ratify the payments through parliament hit a brick wall.
These unfortunate happening come in the wake of Attorney General confirming that the government owes Kenyans a total of Ksh 4.2Billion in compensations rewarded by the courts locally, some which have dragged for ages and ages. Why the slapdash, has foreign court rulings suddenly become superior to our local courts? In the eyes of the president the Anglo-leasing scammers are more important than Kenyans at home rewarded by domestic courts for various atrocities committed against them by the state, as Contradiction now becomes an official state policy; the left doesnâ€™t know what the right is doing such that they donâ€™t care to tell even a good lie anymore.
The questionable act and its polluted accompanying arguments leave us with no doubt but to believe that Jubilee could be on a rat race to pay its campaign financiers. There can be no any other logical justification considering the timing and the sudden urgency.
Sickening is the riding justification that even the grand coalition government paid sections of this money and so jubilee is but part of the macabre relay. So what!!!! Does it mean every problem jubilee inherited, it will absolutely not remedy? If the Grand Coalition killed, Jubilee may just commit a holocaust? If Grand coalition short-sightedness led to hunger plague related deaths in Turkana then Jubilee will double their effort in Baringo among other places to oversee the worst form of same plagueâ€”call it DIGITAL BACKWARDNESS.
We condemn fully condemn the trend President Uhuru is taking the country with his incompetent body language. We equally append our voices to the position taken by the Law Society of Kenya and other voices of reason on the sameâ€”we must rescue Kenya from this new law.
