Caption : President Uhuru Kenyatta with former British PM Tony Blair
In around 6 weeks time, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair will be officially presented as the mastermind of an ill-advised war on Iraq that toppled former strongman Saddam Hussein, based on fabricated evidence of Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Tony Blair is President Uhuru Kenyatta’s advisor and sources claim that he’s on a £10 Million retainer (approximately Kshs. 1.4 Billion) for unspecified “consultancy” services extended for international lobbying. After a high-profile unveiling 2 years ago, these days Blair jets into the country lowkey, with the only person who seems to know is Jubilee mole Robert Alai.
The Iraq Inquiry, also referred to as the Chilcot Inquiry after its chairman, Sir John Chilcot, is a British public inquiry into the nation’s role in the Iraq War. On 9 May 2016 Sir Chilcot stated that the inquiry would finally publish its report on 6 July 2016, more than seven years after the inquiry was announced.
It is ironic that the man who offered advise to President Uhuru Kenyatta on how to side-step the International Criminal Court (ICC) justice system, may soon be arraigned at the same court, to face charges of war-crimes.
Hardliners in the United Kingdom prefer an even more brutal approach to dealing with Tony Blair, with many calling for him to be charged with Treason, because the war was not based on England’s interest but on America’s insistence, after Tony Blair flew to George Bush’s Texas Ranch sometimes in 2002.
Let’s remind ourselves what was said at the post World War Two Nuremberg trial of leading Nazis regarding the launching of a war of aggression.
“War is essentially an evil thing. Its consequences are not confined to the belligerent states alone, but affect the whole world. To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”
Bush and Blair clearly initiated a war of aggression against Iraq in 2003 and therefore committed ‘the supreme international crime’.
It is unfortunate that since 2010, Kenyan mainstream media houses conspired to deny Kenyans international news, in a deliberate move aimed at dumbing-down the citizenry, who would have been interested to follow-up on this inquiry that revolves around a man who advises our President.
When Uhuru Kenyatta assumed office, we had high hopes that he would surround himself with the creme of academia in Kenya, exceptional individuals, visionaries or geniuses. But we were shocked to discover characters like Jomo Gecaga (who has not been published on any field of speciality), Njee Muturi (Solicitor General who has never won a case in court), Aden Duale (Terrorist-linked Cushite), David Murathe (weed-connect) and other questionable characters.
We recently profiled the Kenyan Presidency as the hub of propagating anti-intellectualism in Kenya, and thus making it a deliberate effort for the country to concede it’s position of authority and trade-hub in the region. It’s not a coincidence then that Uganda and Rwanda pulled-out of rail/pipeline projects that involved Kenya and instead routed them through Tanzania.
We have to call on the President to make Statehouse the hub of incubating exceptionalism and not propagating hate-speech, negative-ethnicity and petty press-releases as those that are drafted by the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU). They only cheapen the presidency and make a mockery of the institution/office.
Having fake PhD holders like Mutahi Ngunyi has had disastrous effects on the Kenyan society, especially after he churned out the fake “Tyranny of Numbers” theory, in conjunction with bribed journalists and editors at Royal Media Services. Reason why we will petition Communications Authority of Kenya to compel local TV stations to reinstate the International News segment, because Kenyans are really being dumbed-down by the inferior local news.
Obama recently addressed graduants at the Rutgers University in New Jersey, where he spoke about the strain of anti-intellectualism, in near-identical circumstances as the main problem facing Kenya today.
Because in Kenya, we have isolated all our brilliant minds, and elevated hopeless, brainless individuals like Mike Sonko, Ferdinand Waititu, William Kabogo, Jaguar, and many others who have no spec of intellect in their brains. The reason why we consistently call on the Commission of Higher Education to close down Daystar University because it’s journalists for instance Kameme FM’s Njogu wa Njoroge, have contributed most to the elevating of these brainless characters to prominence, and at the expense of the real brains that can change Kenya.
Take a moment and listen to Obama’s 4 Minute clip talking about anti-intellectualism and correlate that with the mediocrity that Daystar graduates have treated this country to. You will indeed support my calls to have the University shut-down and for employers not to employ graduates from that questionable institution.
