    Mzee Kibaki upo?


    Baada ya ile mshike mshike ya 'Post 2007 Election Violence' mojapo ya
    recommendations ni kuteuliwa kwa Jaji Waki angalie vyanzo vya vujo lote
    lile.Bwana mkuu alifanya kazi yake kwa umahiri na alipompa Rais Kibaki ripoti
    yenyewe haikuwa kama vile 'protocol' ilivyokua hapo zamani.This time around kulikUa na copy ambayo alimkabidhi Koffi Annan and in essence kuiweka
    kwenye mikono ya 'International Community'.

    Cha mno kilichojitokeza na hii ripoti ni kwamba ilikua na kitu watu wamekuja
    kuita 'self triggering mechanism'....If the Kenyan authorities dont set up a
    tribunal to investigate and prosecute in 6 days then the matter will be picked
    up by the International Court at The Hague.

    This is something that neither PNU or ODM walikua wakitarajia na hapo
    awali it threteaned ule muungano wa Serikali ya Rais Kibaki.Kuna watu waliotajwa
    kua miongoni mwa 'master minds' wa zogo kwa kuchochea na maneno na
    wengine wakanunua silaha na kuwapa vijana kufanya mauaji.

    Siku zinazidi kuyoyoma na serikali haina Official Statement kuhusu findings
    of Wakis Commission mpaka inabidi European Union watoe onyo kua watasitisha
    misaada, if the findings of the Commission are not implemented.

    Wenyewe wakuu wanalisti ya mtu kumi..'Top Ten Suspects' ambayo kama
    namna gani vipi wataanzisha proceedings wenyewe.

    EU in Kenya poll tribunal threat


    Critics warn prosecutions could lead to further clashes

    The European Union is threatening to withhold aid to Kenya unless a recent report's recommendations on January's post-poll clashes are implemented.

    The report called for an international tribunal to try the politicians and businessmen implicated in the violence.

    A list of 10 suspects is to be given to the International Criminal Court by the mediators of Kenya's power-sharing deal if a court is not set up next month.

    But the cabinet has avoided the topic since the report's release last month.

    The BBC's Muliro Telewa in the capital, Nairobi, says the government's budget would be short of $500m if the EU did cut its aid.

    President Mwai Kibaki of the Party of National Unity (PNU) and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga, now prime minister, signed an agreement in February to end the crisis and formed a coalition government.

    More than 1,500 people were killed in the violence that engulfed the country after December's elections and some 300,000 more fled their homes.


    The EU's representative in Kenya Eric van der Linden told journalists that Kenya had no option but to implement the recommendations of the commission of inquiry into the post-election violence.

    It was chaired by Justice Phillip Waki, who found that in some areas the violence was planned and organised with the support of politicians and businessmen.

    When the report came out, both Mr Kibaki and Mr Odinga pledged to implement its recommendations.

    But in the intervening weeks, many politicians have split over the issue - supporters arguing it will put an end to impunity and critics insisting the report is flawed and full of hearsay.

    Some also warn that any prosecutions could spark further clashes between communities, our reporter says.

    The commission of inquiry was appointed following recommendations by the international mediation team led by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.

    Mr Waki handed over the sealed list of suspects to Mr Annan, who is to hand it over to the ICC in The Hague if the court is not set up as agreed.

    Human rights groups have warned that the government cannot afford to ignore the findings of the inquiry if it wants to avoid a repeat.

    This is too sad, but in either way thats the only language Africans can listen and understand. Threats and embargoes. Perhaps if they are taken to the Hague, they will appreciate the importance of the lives of their compatriots.

    I guess Kibaki and Raila were of the wish that they will bury the findings under the cerpet.

    They didnt know that the so called "international community" is always hard on the weak. And on that they meet criteria.
