Another Sad Day in Kenya: Dictator Kibaki's Illegitimate Cabinet Announced!
Talk of total greed and madness!
Why are we lying to ourselves and the rest of the world that Mwai Kibaki wants peace in Kenya? Why are we lying that Kibaki wants democracy in Kenya? Why are we lying that Kibaki wants a Government of National Unity? His urges and excesses are driving him and the country down the tubes! He has degenerated into an insensitive and ruthless dictator who cares less about what the people of Kenya want!
His hasty action of naming an illegitimate government confirms the fact that he is bend on being the president of Kenya no matter what happens. It confirms the fact that he does not care about the views or feelings of the majority of Kenyan voters who voted him and majority of his supporters out. He does not care about the future of Kenya! After all, he has already lived his life! Expecting Kibaki to keep a pledge is being naive. He will break every pledge that he makes without a whim. All he cares about is himself and his selfish-interests.
As a result of his actions, this is what is going to follow:
1. Tribal tensions will escalate to levels never witnessed before.
2. Feelings by majority of the Kenyan ethnic groups, especially the Luo, that Kibaki's dominant Kikuyu tribe has always given them a raw deal when it comes to the management, distribution, and utilization of resources and opportunities, will reach unparalled levels.
3.Violence is going to tripple in the country!
4. Guerilla warfare will become an option for many who feel cheated, frustrated and oppressed by an illegitimate regime.
This is what the international community can do to save Kenya:
1.Stop giving preferential treatment to Mwai Kibaki when he is an enemy of democracy in Kenya, Africa and the world at large.
2.Call on Mwai Kibaki to step down immediately.
3.Call for another Presidential election in Kenya overseen by an international body.
4.Institute a freeze on travel visas for Kibaki and his family members.
5. Institute a freeze on travel visas on members of his illegitimate government.
6. Freeze certain aid grants to Kenya.
7. Recall a number of key diplomatic staff from Kenya.
