      Default President Uhuru Kenyatta is an angry man and 'distressed'.

      Why Uhuru Kenyatta is on the warpath

      Updated Saturday, September 14th 2013 at 23:39 GMT +3

      President Uhuru Kenyatta


      By JUMA KWAYERA and Jacob Ng’etich


      Kenya: President Uhuru Kenyatta is an angry man. He is fed up with the incessant attacks the Opposition has mounted against the Jubilee government and distressed by the ongoing trials at the International Criminal Court.


      According to Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, the pressure on the President to allocate more funds to counties, teachers, doctors, military and demands by university lecturers for better pay have pushed him to the wall.


      Disquiet in the public service seemed to give the opposition the ammunition it required to launch attacks on the government, projecting the Jubilee administration as incompetent and indecisive, especially after it delayed to release July salaries for civil servants.


      “There has been underground propaganda that the government would be weakened when the ICC trials begin,” Murkomen said.


      “Yale yote mnasikia huko nje yataisha (all that you hear out there will come to an end),” said the president on Wednesday at Ukunda in reference to the ICC cases.


      Sources close to him said the President wants to send a clear message that no one should take his leadership for granted or mistake his friendly persona as a sign of weakness. “The President has decided enough is enough because he has done everything in his power to work with the Opposition, but they have only intensified attacks against everything the Government is doing,” said an ally of the president.


      Reality check


      He has been in a foul and combative mood over the last two weeks, daring the Opposition and telling his fiercest political opponent, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga “to stay at home and watch how we lead the country”. Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s spokesperson Dennis Onyango said there was no need to respond as the President did not mention the Cord leader directly.


      “We decided not to respond because we do not feel like the President targeted the former Prime Minister directly. We can only comment when he is mentioned,” said Mr Onyango. Uhuru’s disposition has significantly shifted, noticeably switching from his trademark easy-going mien to an authoritative commander-in-chief ready to take the fight to his opponents’ doorstep.


      Amukowa Anangwe, a political science lecturer at Dodoma University, says the President’s transformation is a reality check and is good for the country. “He has come to terms with the fact that he cannot rule by begging and pleading with Kenyans the way he has been doing. He has to act tough and be firm because as Head of State, he has realised he personally carries the failures and successes of the country, and thus he has to lead from the front... and that is good for the country,” said Prof Anangwe.


      Confidence boost


      Munene Macharia of the United States International University seems to agree with this thinking. According to him, the tough-talking President is alive to the reality that too much bureaucracy in Government will rock the administration and undermine his own bid for a second term.


      “He has been fair on bureaucrats but by asserting himself he also wants to instill discipline in public service because when things are not working well, he bears the blame,” said Prof Munene.

      Why Uhuru is 'distressed over ICC as Ruto braves the dock

      In Summary



      • The Deputy President on Tuesday pleaded not guilty to crimes against humanity charges in proceedings televised live from The Hague, Netherlands.
      • The proceedings are not only seen as an embarrassment but an assault on the presidency.
      • Inquiries by the Sunday Nation revealed that although there has been a strong push for him to call the court’s bluff, the President has maintained his commitment to co-operate with the ICC.


      The reality of President Uhuru Kenyatta being in the dock in The Hague and the unpredictability of the International Criminal Court (ICC) are some of the reasons the Head of State was “distressed” when his Deputy appeared before the court on Tuesday.



      In his maiden monthly media briefing on Thursday, State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu said the opening statements during the start of Deputy President William Ruto’s trial and comments by ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda had distressed the President.



      Sources close to the presidency say President Kenyatta strongly feels that the ICC matter should go away as soon as possible.



      The Deputy President on Tuesday pleaded not guilty to crimes against humanity charges in proceedings televised live from The Hague, Netherlands.



      The President is also scheduled to stand trial before the court in November for alleged crimes against humanity.



      Attending the court has been a humbling experience for top leaders and President Kenyatta will be the first sitting Head of State to answer charges at the ICC, a situation his handlers are determined to prevent.

      I thought the new Mombasa Port will ease up things? I hear the tourism revenues have slide down 7% and KQ is in bad books with the entrance of fastjet in the near future! so how will the trio partnership of coalition of willing work out to rescue Kenya economic misery if Dar just lowered tolls from US$500 to US$ 157 per truck? And global gold prices have rebounded and our inflation keeps dropping?

      You sound so naive, its beyond ridiculous!

      The west has nothing to do with the debacle at the ICC. Its a bunch of damn MP's who took the cases there. Stop blaming the mess that your own folks created on the West. Thats a lie that the likes of you and your kind have been bandying around thinking that the more you talk about a lie, the more it becomes the truth. I bet you, if it was Raila at the dock non you ill advised people would be talking.

      Now you want Kenyans to gang up with dictators and murderers just because your tin god is on trial. How dare you quote Bashir and Zenawi on this forum! That paints a picture of where your moral compass is set and you want everybody to believe in your naivety!

      PS. Don't make some of us Kenyans (read 40 tribes) look bad.

      Kizuri cha jiuza,,,,so if TZ is doing thaaat well,,you do not have to tell us.

      Kwahivyo,,,kama si kizuri,,,basi,,kitajitembeza,, ama kutembezwe,,,
      so,,may be,,,TZ is not doing that well,,for we do not see,,and that is
      why you want us,,to see,,,what we don't see

      And before flying past ,,,,,or whatever,,you have a big challenge,,before you,
      which we,,in Kenya has gone through,,and now we are working on the
      consequences,,,that is having a new constitution,,i hear that TZ will be dealing
      with this in 2015,,,have a government led by other people and not CCM
      all the time and that..will be the semblance that Tanzania is going
      places.

      Without,,that,,,,,he he ha ha,,,you are still,,in the infancy,,you can build
      everything but come down,,in seconds,,if you buid it,,in loose
      soil,, as is happening in places like Egypt where they were
      so advanced in almost everything,,but not,,in their political
      quarters.

      Come up with a new constitution,,,hope that Zanzibar will not
      break away,,,new arrangement in Tanzania and move away
      from CCM mentality,,,,for east Africa needs TZ but what we
      abhor is this,,,,,,,,, CCM mentality.

      wajameni" we are member of the same family. If you're neighbor's house is on fire we don't have to stand aside and watch with laughter on our face but to do whatever possible to rescue the situation!!!! Since Tanzania and Kenya are like brother and sister, Lets comment diplomatically because we are supposed to strengthen our ties instead of weakening them.

      The reality of President Uhuru Kenyatta being in the dock in The Hague and the unpredictability of the International Criminal Court (ICC) are some of the reasons the Head of State was “distressed” when his Deputy appeared before the court on Tuesday.
      You are trying to twist what the state house spokesman said,,,so as to fit you.

      We are passed that age when people spread funny rumors in the villages.

      The statehouse spokesman said that,,the president was stressed to
      see his deputy in the dock,,in a foreign land.


      Now,,ICC cases are on going,,everything in Kenya is functioning,
      the sun is rising and setting,,as usual,,but what is happening
      is that,,witnesses are running away,,,from Bensouda.


      Yesterday,,,a record of four (4) ICC witnesses said that they
      were not going to cooperate with the court.

      Then you talk about what the president,,may have said,,,,instead of
      mourning that,,,,,,,the ICC monster that was to deal with Kenya is no
      more than,,kuku amenyeshewa.

      If this,,Ruto's case goes the way it is moving,,in that,,
      direction,,,a total embarrassment to ICC and Bensouda,,,do
      you think that,,Uhuru Kenyatta will be needed,,even to
      go to the Hague,,, kwa kua itakua imesambaratika
      kama
      ,,Babylon.

      People should learn,,,how,, to read the weather first,,
      and that is the,,political one,,and spare yourself,,,,total
      embarrassment.

      Once again,,ICC is going to nowhere,,it is a total failure
      to those who did put their desperate hopes in,,,,those
      enemies of Kenya,,,,who unashamedly called
      themselves,,eti Kenyans.
