Tell it Kenyans

Ex-Immigration Minister Linnah Jebii Kilimo said in London last Saturday that the Kenya Anti -Corruption Commission (KACC) was in the fore front in abetting corruption. She further charged that KACC officials solicit for bribes to have the corruption files of certain individuals disappear from the records. Now, Tabitha Cherop from her Marakwet East constituency finds her MPs style puzzling and poses: “Why do opposition leaders insist on making such claims while abroad?

Lure of London

Still on dancing yonder habit before dancing here at home, Mrs Jebii Kilimo’s visit to London comes in the wake of other planned tours to the city by key political players from Kenya. Information minister Mutahi Kagwe will this Thursday be in the City talking about Information Communication Technology (ICT). Early next month, Narc Kenya operatives will be meeting Kenyans in London to garner for moral and monetary support while ODM-K’s presidential aspirant Kalonzo Musyoka is expected to start a European cities tour and make a stopover in London. What is the hidden treasure that these people so spiritedly go searching for in London?

Why pick on Michuki?

Archbishop Ndingi Mwana Nzeki feels strongly that Internal security Minister John Michuki should be sacked for not doing enough to stop Mt Elgon clashes. Morris Maina from Kangema finds nothing wrong with that. Only that Maina cannot figure out how Michuki can be of help if the will of the warring communities is to continue murdering each other. But Maina wonders: “What do we do with the clergymen and women who have opted to keep off Mt Elgon Ndingi included, but instead continue issuing political statements instead of taking the Godly gospel of peace to the region? Excommunicate them? Sack them? Distrust them? Ignore them?”
