    Wakuu,

    Rais Kibaki na Waziri Mkuu Raila Odinga wameamua kuwafuta kazi
    mawaziri ambao wamekumbwa na kashfa mbalimbali na pia wale
    wanaonekana hawafanyi kazi ipasavyo.Hapa mimi yangu ni macho
    maana the deck of cards could crumble if caution is not exercised.

    Sackings start this week - PM


    [​IMG]

    Updated 6 hr(s) 1 min(s) ago

    By James Anyanzwa and David Ohito

    Prime Minister Raila Odinga has said top Government officials - including Cabinet ministers - would be shown the door before the end of the week.

    Raila said he would "make a major announcement" that would show Government's commitment to fighting corruption, which could include the sacking of heads of state corporations implicated in graft. Increasingly under public pressure to crack down on corruption and reign in on bickering Cabinet ministers, President Kibaki and Raila have been closing ranks on the need to fire corrupt and non-performing top officers in the civil service.

    Speaking to The Standard after opening the Euromoney Kenya Investment Conference at Laico Regency Hotel in Nairobi, Raila said ministers and Permanent Secretaries implicated would also be sacked, hinting at an impending shuffle.

    "We have investigated 12 State corporations and as a result, six chief executives have been sent home. Next in line will be senior Government officers, including ministers and PSs," said the PM
    .

    President Kibaki jointly opened the investment conference with Raila. A tough-talking Raila said those implicated in corruption would not be spared. "We are not going to condone any form of corruption. Those found implicated will face the law," he said.

    Raila's sentiments come in the wake of a much-anticipated Cabinet shuffle. Currently there are 42 ministers and 50 assistant ministers.

    Suspicious rulings

    At the same time, the PM berated the Judiciary claiming it was "a major impediment" to the Government's efforts to root out corruption.

    "Although it enjoys security of tenure, the Government is exploring avenues of dealing with the Judiciary," he said.

    Raila said there were court rulings, which were "raising eyebrows" and singled out the Anglo-Leasing cases, which the courts issued, restrain orders barring the Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission from investigating, as a case in point.

    Under fire

    The Judiciary has been under fire lately after the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) petitioned the President to institute a tribunal to investigate the conduct of Chief Justice Evan Gicheru.

    Yesterday, Justice Minister Martha Karua hit out at the Chief Justice, allegedly for standing in the way of reforms in the judiciary.

    But yesterday Raila questioned the independence of the Judiciary saying: "It is organically part and parcel of the Government and drawing funds from the Executive.

    Raila maintainted that the Government would take decisive action. "It is not like it is popularly believed that the leadership is unable to crack the whip," Raila said.

    During his tour of the larger Kisii districts last week, President Kibaki gave a stern warning Cabinet ministers who criticise the government in public and yet do not raise the same issues at Cabinet meetings.

    In what was seen as calling his ministers to order, President Kibaki said such members of Cabinet should either shut up or quit or he would show them the door.

    Raila's statement yesterday came a week after the US Government permanently banned a "top Government official" from travelling to the US for engaging in "official corruption."

    Raila also said no civil servant would be allowed to engage in private business while on Government payroll.

    "If you want to be a business person then resign and go do business full time," Raila said.

    A number of parastatals have been rocked by corruption in the recent past. They include Kenya Pipeline Company, Kenya Tourist board, National Social Security Fund, Kenya Airports Authority, National Cereals and Produce Board and the Pyrethrum Board of Kenya.

    In a recent interview to explain his position pushing for the implicated in corruption to step aside, Raila said: "Where that arrangement has been exploited for public good and not malice, it has worked well. But it creates confusion and weakens the war on corruption when used to settle scores and score political mileage."

    "We need to move from exposing and firing people to prosecuting and jailing those found guilty of corruption," he said.

    Cautious donors

    The move comes after the international community expressed concern over official corruption in Kenya and urged the Government to take action. A fortnight ago UK Secretary for International Development Alexander Douglas expressed concern over official corruption during a visit to Kenya.

    Cautious donors have opted to route their help in hunger and other interventions through UN agencies and others international NGOs.

    Ruto sijui kama atapona?, lakini kwa kiasi kikubwa inaweza kumuathiri Odinga na ODM. Kibaki hata akiwatupa watu wake, yeye hagombei tena uRais. Ngoja tusikilize baada ya mabadiliko.

    Mfumwa,

    Nd'o mawazo yangu hayo.Kuna tetesi kwamba Kibaki kwa vile hagombei
    tena basi anataka kumtumia Raila kufanya hii kazi chafu na mwishowe
    ODM inaweza kusambaratika na kiwango kikubwa huu muungani wao ukafa.

    Pili, iwapo ngoma itachemsha, basi kuna kazi maana as we speak hamna
    tume ya uchaguzi ambayo inaweza kusimamia uchaguzi if need be.Hatimaye
    itabidi Rais Kibaki atumie nguvu za kiimla ila kuendeleza utawala wake. Hapa
    kuna moshi na naomba sub'ra maana hii kitu sii ndogo.Ama labda waamue
    hawatofanya wanavyosema ila ni vitisho tu.

    My list includes Ruto na Martha Karua.

    Na ndio Kibaki anachofanya, Raila kujiunga na hii Serikali kwa kiasi fulani atapata matatizo, sema ilikuwa shinikizo. Ila usishangae karibia na uchaguzi Raila akajitoa, manake Raila ni mpiganaji makini na huenda na wakati.

    Akiondolewa Martha Karua huo MOTO wake sijui utakuwa vipi. Huyu Mama ni ngangari hasa katika siasa.

    Mimi ninachofurahi kwa hizo statement za hao viongozi ziko open na very strong sana. I mean they dare to speak. Ingawaje inaonekana wamefanya hivyo juu ya pressure za international organisation pamoja na other groups, lakini at least wana react accordingl. It is difficult kuwa na issue kama hii hapa home.

    ...lets see.

    Waafrika tubadilike, la sivyo tutaendelea na umaskini na umatonya wetu. Waliopewa madaraka wanatakiwa wasimame katika taratibu na sheria. Hii kuangaliana usoni, huyu ni mwenzangu, ni mwanamtandao, ni mwanachama mwenzangu ndiyo inayotupa shida hadi leo Afrika. KILA KIONGOZI WA AFRIKA ANANGALIA MASLIHI BINAFSI BADALA YA MASILA YA TAIFA.

    Kuna haja ya kuifanyia mabadiliko makubwa mifumo ya utawala Afrika ili viongozi hasa wa kisiasa waweze kuwajibika kwa wananchi na sio wananchi kuwajibika kwa wanasiasa.

    Kwapomoja, tujenge taifa la kesho leo!

    Showdown looms over planned Karua censure

    Medical services Assistant minister Danson Mungatana addressing the press on the threat to sponsor a motion of censure against Justice Minister Martha Karua on Thursday in Nairobi


    By NATION CorrespondentsPosted Thursday, March 26 2009 at 20:06

    The stage is set for yet another political showdown in Parliament with Cabinet minister Martha Karua daring MPs pushing for a censure motion against her to go ahead.

    The Justice minister said she will not be intimidated by threats of a censure motion, even as her Narc Kenya party claimed the plan is a plot by forces opposed to her anti-corruption campaign.

    Speaking in Naivasha on Thursday, Ms Karua said she would not lose any sleep over the threat, adding that she could “chew gum and walk at the same time”.

    People’s toes

    “The reactions I am getting are just the encouragement that I need,” she retorted a day after a group of MPs announced their intention to file a censure motion against her for alleged incompetence.

    Budalang’i MP Ababu Namwaba, Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny, Kamukunji MP Simon Mbugua and Laisamis MP Joseph Lekuton are among those threatening to file the motion. They said the minister’s record was tainted.

    Ms Karua said corrupt elements were fighting her. “The role of my ministry is fighting corruption and hence, practically stepping on people toes,” she said.

    The Narc Kenya National Executive Council warned of an “explosion of anger from the people” if the motion was filed.

    Mhh, kwa Martha Karua, kazi ipo. Ruto ilishindikana Bungeni. Nadhani kuelekea uchaguzi wa 2012 yatatokea mengi ambayo yatazitingisha kambi zote. Lakini Raila asipoangalia ODM inaelekea kubaya. Hizi siasa za kila siku kufikiria uchaguzi ujao badala maendeleo ya nchi na wananchi ni mbaya.

    Mfumwa,

    Martha Karua anatarajia kua mswada utapigwa chini kama vile Ruto.
    Anachosahau ni kwamba Ruto ana-support kubwa ya wabunge(most of
    whom come from ODM). Karua atategemea support ya wabunge wa
    Central Kenya ambao si eti wote wanamfagilia.Kuna wale wanaompiga
    tafu Uhuru Kenyatta na hawampendi huyu mama hata chembe.

    Kisha kuna-watu wanausongo naye maana hawa ndio waliokua wakimsuport
    Kibaki hata baada ya kuonekana bayana kuwa kibabu kinaiba kura.A'fu pia
    alimtukana Koffi Annan during the negotiations mpaka ikabidi mkewe
    Mandela amkaripie na kumwambia kua ni mtoto mchanga na hajaona vita.

    Kwa ufupi, Martha Karua anajaribu kujisafisha ili ifikapo 2012 agombee urais.

    Kuhusu Raila na ODM, mimi naona ni kama Kibaki anajaribu kumuunguza
    huyu bwana na kusambaratisha ODM nd'o ifikapo 2012, nguvu za ODM ziwe
    zimefifia.Raila has to really be skillful when handling these people maana wana
    hila mbaya tu.Jana wamemtumia ili kutetea serikali ya muungano nami nikawa
    najiuliza why is he trying to clear up a mess that has been created
    squarely by Kibaki's incompetence as a lame duck president?

    Kwa ufupi, most Kenyan politicians right now are already posturing for 2012 na
    maslahi ya wananchi yametupiliwa mbali.Wale jamaa waliokua displaced baada
    ya zile fujo za 2007 bado hawajawa 'settled'; njaa inauwa watu nchi nzima
    huku dili za kifisadi za kuuza mahindi zinaendelea; wezi na mwera pia nao
    wanachangia katika kuua wananchi kana kwamba hamna sheria; katiba ya nchi
    bado ni ile ile ya mkoloni na wanasiasa washasahau kua waliahidi that will be
    the first order of business once elected;nchi haina tume ya uchaguzi na iwapo
    serikali ya muungano itavunjika basi uchaguzi utafanyika kiimla;bei ya unga wa
    ugali haishkiki...orodha ni ndefu.

    Mungu ibariki Kenya!

    Wakuu,

    leo waziri mkuu wa Kenya kamgeukia Kamanda wa Polisi Brig.Ali na
    Jaji Mkuu Bw. Gicheru(aliyemuapisha Kibaki chini ya wingu la kiza
    baada ya uwizi wa kura) na kuwaambia kua wanachemsha kazini
    na itabidi tusubiri baada ya hio 'retreat' kujua kulikoni.Meanwhile
    bado tunasubiri kuona kama watu watafutwa kazi ama ni zile
    hadithi za "n'tilie mchuzi pangu n'pakavu"....



    Raila vows action against Gicheru and Ali

    Prime Minister Raila Odinga addresses the media in Nairobi on Wednesday

    By LUCAS BARASA Posted Wednesday, April 1 2009 at 22:01

    Prime Minister Raila Odinga trained his guns on Chief Justice Evan Gicheru and Police Commissioner Hussein Ali, vowing that the government would soon take action against them.

    He accused the Judiciary of “rot and incompetence” and the police of a shoot-to-kill approach and impunity in quelling last year’s post-election violence.

    The PM said the coalition government would go on a retreat at the weekend to discuss urgent reforms as it enters its second year. Among the issues are reforms in the Judiciary and the police force.

    “I am telling you not to listen to what the Chief Justice and Police Commissioner are saying. They are the ones on the dock... We are the ones going to take action as government,” Mr Odinga told journalists at his Treasury Building office in Nairobi. Police have been criticised for illegal executions and the Judiciary for failure to conclude corruption cases.

    Mr Odinga said the Judiciary was guilty of stalling the war against corruption and asked why criminal cases involving some top government officials remained in court for years. They should be speedily concluded.

    The PM said the coalition was on schedule in implementing the reforms it was supposed to under Agenda IV of the National Dialogue and Reconciliation Accord.

    The issues include writing a new constitution, conducting legal and land reforms, tackling unemployment, ensuring equity and fighting poverty.

    A committee has been formed to help give the country a new constitution, plans were afoot to establish an independent electoral review commission to replace the disbanded Electoral Commission of Kenya while Kazi kwa Vijana (jobs for youth) initiative has been launched for the youth.

    Mr Odinga regretted that efforts to deal with post-election violence in accordance with the Waki report had not been concluded because the formation of a tribunal to try those responsible were blocked by those who suspect their names feature in the Waki list.

    Media accused

    He accused the media of campaigning for the suspects to be tried at the International Criminal Court at The Hague. Mr Odinga said the government hoped to reintroduce a fresh Bill for the formation of a local tribunal. He said the Ministry of Lands will table two Bills on land reforms in the Cabinet next week.

    He added that the government will carry out radical reforms of the Judiciary and the police and a team is being formed to oversee the process.

    During its weekend retreat, the Grand Coalition Management Committee would agree on reforms and when they would be implemented. The 14-member committee is headed by President Kibaki and Mr Odinga and draws membership from both ODM and PNU.

    The PM denied that most Kenyans were disappointed with the coalition’s leadership, saying many people had high expectations that some things would be done “overnight”.

    The world economic crisis had made the situation worse, the PM said, adding that he was hopeful the coalition would find favour with Kenyans once the current famine eased and the high cost of living came down.

    Mr Odinga dismissed a suggestion by the Head of Public Service, Mr Francis Muthaura, that he be paid a salary equal to that of the Vice-President. He said the National Accord was clear that he was equal to President Kibaki.

    However, since President Kibaki was “also performing” some duties as Head of State, he could only accept a salary between the VP’s and the President’s, he said.


    He said being paid the same salary as the VP would reverse the pecking order in the accord, which says he and President Kibaki were equal partners.
