Kenyan Opposition Leader Raila Odinga ‘Sworn in’ as People’s President

Kenya has now two men who call themselves the country’s president. How did this happen?

Kenya’s Reprisals Against Ethiopia

Kenya’s relations with Ethiopia is getting less harmonious recently due to Ethiopia’s repeated incursions into Kenyan territory in complete disregard to the country’s sovereignty

By African Intelligence,

UNDERMINED by the incursion of the Ethiopian army into Kenyan territory in late May (at the Illeret locality, 15 km from the border), relations between Kenya and Ethiopia could deteriorate even further.

The Kenyan government has decided to break the agreement signed with Ethiopia in 2012 under which Kenya undertook to import some 400 MW of electricity for a period of 30 years, after the Gilgel Gibe III dam (southwest Ethiopia) is completed next year.  Continue reading Kenya’s Reprisals Against Ethiopia

Eritrea Denies It Barred President Uhuru’s Jet from Its Airspace

A JINXED TRIP? Leave Eritrea out of your mess. The expensive case of misjudgment begins and ends with the president’s flight route planners.

By Nyambega Gisesa,

ERITREA has denied reports that it played a role in events leading to President Uhuru Kenyatta cutting short his trip to the United States midair last Thursday night.

Eritrea’s Ambassador Beyene Russom said his country had given the Kenya government the requisite clearance for the President’s jet to use its airspace on his way to Dubai, where he was scheduled to board a commercial flight to Los Angeles.

The Government of Kenya sought permission to use the Eritrean airspace and it was granted and all the relevant communication was forwarded to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and aviation authorities,” Russom told The Standard yesterday.

But the envoy clarified that the President’s Fokker 77 military aircraft never accessed Eritrean airspaceContinue reading Eritrea Denies It Barred President Uhuru’s Jet from Its Airspace

President Uhuru’s Jet Routing Blunder Over Eritrean Skies

A MESS. President Uhuru was on his way to Dubai over Yemeni war zone skies boarding his official Kenyan Air Force military plane. He got into a dangerous challenge on routing the plane due to increased military activity in Yemen. He wandered over the Red Sea skies for 5 hours before he decide to return back home.

By Roselyne Obala,

KENYA’s President Uhuru Kenyatta was forced last night to cancel his business trip to the U.S. after a routing blunder of his trip nearly sent his military jet to the raging war zone on the skies over Yemen.

According to State House, the President’s jet was forced to turn back and return to the country minutes to midnight when the pilots realised they were flying Kenya’s Commander-in-Chief right into a battlefield with dozens of exploding missiles and bombs.  Continue reading President Uhuru’s Jet Routing Blunder Over Eritrean Skies

Another Kenyan Stolen Election

Will the election of an ICC indicted Kenyan president defines President Barack Obama in Africa or will President Barack Obama use the election of Kenyatta to define his human rights policy in Africa?

Kenyan president – Indicted by ICC for crimes against humanity

By Thomas C Mountain,

That the fix was in was confirmed when the Godfather himself, son of a Kenyan, Barack Obama, called Uhuru Kenyatta, indicted for “Crimes Against Humanity” by those minions of Pax Americana, the International Criminal Court, to congratulate him for successfully conducting another Kenyan stolen election.

As in every election held in Kenya since Independence over half a century ago the ruling “la familia” stole the election “free, fair and square”. “La Familia” in Kenya means the same extended family of ethnic minority Kikuyu’s ruling Kenya from “Kenya’s Founder” Jomo Kenyatta to his son, Pax Americana’s man of the hour Uhuru Kenyatta, the head of “la Familia” that today owns upwards of 1 million hectares of Kenya’s prime land.  Continue reading Another Kenyan Stolen Election

The Hypocrisy of Dealing With a Criminal President

Will the election of Uhuru Kenyatta as president of Kenya define President Barack Obama in Africa or will President Barack Obama use the election of President Kenyatta to define his human rights policy in Africa?

Will the U.S. do what it did with Omar al-Bashir of the Sudan to Kenyatta?

By Al Mariam,

Following the presidential election in late December 2007 and the Kenya Electoral Commission’s hurried declaration of incumbent President Mwai Kibaki as the winner, supporters of opposition presidential candidate Raila Odinga in the Orange Democratic Movement alleged widespread electoral fraud and irregularities.

For nearly two months following that election, ethnic violence and strife in Kenya raged resulting in more than 1200 deaths, 3,500 injuries, and the displacement of over 350,000 persons and destruction of over 100,000 properties.  Continue reading The Hypocrisy of Dealing With a Criminal President
