    First Lady blames Saitoti for oil spill deaths

    First Lady Lucy Kibaki addresses journalists on Monday after visiting victims of the Sachangwan fire tragedy at Nairobi's Kenyatta National Hospital, where some of them are admitted

    By BENJAMIN MUINDI

    Posted Monday, February 2 2009 at 16:39

    Kenya's First Lady Lucy Kibaki has said Internal Security minister Prof George Saitoti is to blame for the Molo oil deaths.


    She has also demanded for an explanation, in writing, from officials of the Ministry on why they failed to secure the scene of the incident.

    She termed this as "negligence and insensitivity" by the leaders.

    Ms Kibaki said that the incidence was man-made and could have been avoided if the Provincial Administration took a step to caution the residents of the danger in scooping oil from a fallen tanker.

    "The administrators should have mobilised the residents out the scene of death."

    A furious Mrs Kibaki criticised Prof Saitoti and officials of his ministry of the failure to learn from the past similar incidences in the country.

    "It is not the first or the second time this is happening. Even before the explosion the District Officers and chiefs had enough time to warn the people that is was dangerous to siphon the oil."

    She openly criticised the minister alongside other legislators who flew to Molo at the scene of accident to console the mourners over the weekend.

    "Why should you fly all the way to Molo just to tell the mourning people that they should learn a lesson?"

    She was speaking after visiting victims of the Molo tragedy at the Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi where some of the accident victims are admitted.

    Noting that a similar tragedy happened on Thika Road last year, Mrs Kibaki blamed national leaders for ignoring to take caution and prevent future incidents.

    "Internal Security docket should make sure that the citizens of the country are safe at all times."

    Prof Saitoti , Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka and Cabinet ministers Sam Ongeri, Beth Mugo, and Police Commissioner Hussein Ali were the first leaders to go to the accident scene.

    "Instead of making a visit when the people are dead, you should go there to give them some (civic) education in good time...that petrol is dangerous and to keep off from man-made dangers."

    Mrs Kibaki told the Internal Security ministry to take charge of the situation noting that the country has had enough "unnecessary deaths" since January last year during the post-election violence.

    She said President Kibaki was saddened by the accident and was forced to cut short his official trip to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

    "I was saddened by the Nakumatt inferno and now we have the Molo tragedy. Our leaders should wake up and do something."

    The death toll has reached 118 after seven of the 47 victims flown from the scene to Nairobi succumbed to their injuries.

    She lamented that most of the dead were young people and school-going children, who had been sent by their parents to scoop oil for sale.


    Mrs Kibaki also hit out at MPs whose constituents are dying of hunger.

    "You should be ashamed. With your salaries you can feed the whole constituency...why should you let anyone die of hunger?

    "If one cannot feed his constituents, what can he do for the nation?"

    She was accompanied by the Head of Public Service Francis Muthaura, Public Health minister Beth Mugo, Government spokesman Alfred Mutua, Kamukunji MP Simon Mbugua and former MP Njenga Karume.

    Later, Prime Minister Raila Odinga visited the victims and pledged government support for special food and foreign doctors to carry out reconstructive surgery.

    "The government will not spare anything in providing the best health care for the people," he said.

    KNH director Jotham Micheni requested for blood donations to help the victims.

    DAILY NATION*- First Lady blames Saitoti for oil spill deaths

    Swali:Huyu mwanamama anamamlaka kiasi gani hadi kwamba anaweza kumuamuru maafisa wa wizara wamuandikie sababu ambazo ziliwazuia kuhimidi ile sehemu ya tukio?...ubabe labda, au sijui!

    From when she slapped the journalist, I started to doubt if this lady is mentally stable. Is she sharing the presidency with Mr Kibaki?

    Ab Tichaz, Mkuu,

    Hiyo statement ya DAILY NATION haisemi kwamba Mrs. President amesema barua hiyo iende kwake. Hatujui alisema nini. Inawezekana anaamisha barua iende kwa mabosi wa huyu Waziri, au kwao wao wananchi, yani yeye ana demand maelezo ya maandishi kama mwananchi, kitu kama barua ya wazi kwa wananchi. Hatujui. Wangeweka quotes tuone alichokisema yeye mwenyewe.

    Gazeti la maana, Ab_Tichaz, lingeenda kwa undani zaidi katika hili swala, maana hapa ni mke wa Rais analalamika kwamba mawaziri waliochaguliwa ni mdosho (kwenye video anasema angekuwa waziri mwanamke hili janga lisingetokea!). Sasa hii ni indictment dhidi ya Rais anaeteua mawaziri. Mme wake. Ni ishu kubwa. Ilibidi gazeti lichambue, kwa mujibu wa sheria za Kenya, mke wa Rais ana nguvu gani, au ofisi gani. Labda ana portfolio juu ya some aspects of ustawi wa jamii, who knows. Mimi kama Mtanzania, kwa mfano (au hata the average uninitiated Kenyan) sijui background ya mfumo wa uongozi na sheria za Kenya, ilibidi DAILY NATION waeleze hicho kitu, iwapo ana wadhifa wowote, hata sentensi moja tu.

    Kwa hiyo, Ab Tichaz, what exactly did she say? Not some reporter's vague translation. No, no, no tell us, Mr. crummy reporter, what exactly came out of Mrs. Kibaki's mouth? Bizarre east African newspapers!!

    That Kikuyu accent of hers is just priceless. Some one should make sure she complies to her antipsychotics. I liked the fact that she did not mince any words when reffering to Saitoti.

    Utamaduni wa kenya kila kiongozi anaropoka lake bila consultation na wakubwa wake au his/her peers. Lakini huyu mama kumuamrisha waziri na kumlaumu hadharani nafikiri hiyo imepita mipaka na kwakweli anatakiwa apigwe mkwara aache kuropoka.Nashangazwa kugundua kwamba aliongozana na viongozi waandamizi katika hiyo ziara yake ya hospitali,yeye ni nani mpaka viongozi wa serikali waache kazi zao kumpeleka huko hospitali ambako anaishia kuwaponda huku wanamuangalia?

    Rais Kibaki amekanusha maneno/maagizo ya mke wake, ametoa tamko kwamba anaridhika na utendaji wa Mhe. Saitoti.

    Kuhani,
    Naona unawavalia bango sana waandishi wa habari. Mtu akishademand an explanation hafanyi hivyo kwa niaba ya 3rd party. Ndio maana mmewe ameharakisha kujibu na kuonyesha anayo imani kubwa na waziri wake. Don't blame the messenger. Saa nyingine siyo rahisi kufanya uchambuzi wa papo kwa papo especially in a breaking story like this one.

    Kama First Lady ata-demand Explanation in Writing, sasa Mh. Rais ata-demand maelezo in WHAT!!!!!! Waziri hawajibiki kwa First Lady na wala First Lady hafanyi kazi kwa niaba ya Prezidaa kikatiba unless kama Rais atakuwa kaombwa kuwakilishwa. Sasa hapa hatujui kama First Fist anamwakilisha MUZEE KIBAKI. Wakenya watakuwa wanam-enjoy First Lady wao.

    This time around I agree with Lucy. Tell it like it is!!! Saitoti sleeping on the job...the points she raised in her statement are true...

    Wait and see you will hear that this was a conspiracy!!! The Kenyan way... At some point people have become so cynical that even an accident can be seen as orchestrated by some big wig out to make some quick bucks.

    Flying to the scene of accident in helicopters imemsaidia nani? it's just politicians grandstanding and making it look like they are doing something.
    Casualties are set to rise, gasoline/petrol fueled burns are almost always third degree burns halafu infection sets in ...yaan it's grim.
    My sincere condolences to the bereaved families and quick recovery to those in hospitals.
    All this nuksi ni kwasababu tuli mwaga damu in early 2008.

    Huu ni ujinga, au wenzetu wakenya mke wa rais ana madaraka fulani. Kibaya zaidi kunawanaume wazima na akili zao wamemzunguka huku akimtia aibu rais.

    Kuhani,

    tizama video yake umsikie kwa undani zaidi. Imebidi mpaka Kibaki mwenyewe
    akanuisha/a-clarify what the wife said.

    That said, inafaa huyu mama umuelewe maana ana katabia kakusahau where the boundaries of governance are. Anadhani kwa vile Kibaki ni Rais basi naye pia ni Rais by proxy na nd'o maana hujikuta akitoa matamko ambayo hayaeleweki and if anything embarass the President....(wengine wanasema amezibuka akili, but that is a topic for another day)
