It is fulfilling to be close to power, very gratifying indeed! It comes with benefits, responsibilities that should be guided by BRAINS. One Mr Kimemia has enjoyed unrivalled access to power since Kibaki’s second term.
A few days before the March 2013 elections Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s party made allegations that Mr Kimemia was in the frontline recruiting internal security staff (read DOs and DCs) to help rig elections in favour of TNA- this he denied.
The rumours of Kimemia hanging around Intercontinetal Hotel the night before the Supreme Court ruling need not be recounted.
FAST FORWRAD>>> with the ICC trials was set to begin in September 2013, a tragedy hit our country- the Westgate terror attack – Â again nobody wants to revisit whatever happened BUT we know our president lost a family member (RIP) and subsequently it emerged that somebody had set up a command centre somewhere at Harambee Avenue- and yes it was for good and for worse too.
Most importantly we know Kimemia was ‘demoted’, but wait- all along, it was public knowledge that this guy is indispensable so when Kinyua was brought to statehouse, it was more of adding another mundu wa nyumba, Kimemia’s powers remained intact……
…..and now he wants Raila to apologize for stating what many are alleging to be obvious! The 2013 elections were rigged, messed up and democracy ripped apart by Kimemia and company. He serves in government exactly because of that, or closer to that!
Here is what happened to a powerful man in North Korea, a man of Kimemia’s bureaucratic significance, so the Kimemia wannabes should worry!
Kim Jong-Un watched as the dogs were unleashed on Jang Song-Thaek and five aides who were stripped naked and thrown in a cage.
Kim Jong-Un’s uncle was stripped naked and fed to 120 starving dogs as the tyrant watched on, a shocking report has claimed. The ruthless North Korean leader ordered the execution of Jang Song-Thaek his mentor and the country’s second in command last month. At the time, it was believed he had been executed by firing squad with machine guns after being sentenced to death by a military tribunal.
But now an official report in China says Jang was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides. Then 120 dogs, who had been deprived of food for three days, were allowed to eat them in a process called ‘quan jue’, or execution by dogs. The report added the entire process lasted for an hour, with Kim, 30, supervising it along with 300 senior North Korea officials.
During his New Year’s statement, Kim Jong-Un spoke of the execution of his 67-year-old uncle telling the country ‘our party took resolute action to remove…scum elements within the party last year’. The 30-year-old leader appeared on state television for the speech and analysts say the words reflect his feelings towards aides of his uncle, Jang Song-Thaek, and other family members who are believed to have been sent to labour camps.
“Our party’s timely, accurate decision to purge the anti-party, anti-revolutionary elements helped greatly cement solidarity within our party,” said Kim, adding that “factionalist filth” had been “eliminated”. His statement on state TV was the first time he had publicly criticised his uncle, who was executed on December 12 after he was accused of treason, corruption, following the ways of the hated West, and being a womaniser. In its announcement of the sentence, the North Korean regime described Jang as ‘despicable human scum’, who was ‘worse than a dog’.
Kimemia should learn something; those who protect despotic regimes often end up inside dogs. Well, for Kenya, because of the struggles of the man he imagines owe him some apology, who entrenched at a great personal cost the rule of law, he may not get to the dogs.
But for an apology, forget it.
