ITS not long since the Revival of East Afriican Community; but forces against its formation are becoming more stronger than the cohesive force binding it. I leave the detail by detail to historians though I shall point out a few indications that all is not well. In 1977, the difference between General Idd Amin and Mwalimu Nyerere Led to break of then co-operation, and subsequently Nyerere contributed to the Overthrowing of Amin. The co-operation died at a Time when Amin had taken away 7 kenyan Islands in L.Victoria. This time Kenyatta was busy grapping land to the size of Nyanza and did not bother to take action because he had differed sharply with Mzee Jaramogi Oginga. After Prof. Toro (Moi) , William Mukapa and Yoweri Museveni revived the community to their pride, cracks are now evidence. The greatest test has been to hold Tanzania in the community while expanding to accommondate Rwanda, Burundi, Southern Sudan, and Maybe Ethiopia. Tanzania since the revival of the community has always been the biggest defaulter, Unsincere Member, Less committed while dragging efforts and raising majority complains; and by the way, the survey shows that Tanzania benefits most from the Community. When the Mentioned Islands(Migingo) were taken, Kenyatta never bothered but instead thought it was a discipline formula to deal with Oginga. It was cheaper at that time to reposses the Island and Now Its very costly. I remember that Sudan surrendered some parts to Kenya in 90s and our boundary Buldged at the L. Turkana. Museveni has a very poor history in terms of solving disputes and always prefers Military aggression which he always loses(Rwanda 2003, Kony). He has been thrashed twice with Moi and He surrendered in late 80s, People from Busia and Teso Districts can attest that Fact. Tanzania has killed and Maimed Kenyans in Hundreds where clear evidences have surfaced but did you here this Businessman called Kibaki complain? These are facts you all know. He complained when GM vehicles and other business deals were derailed by Tanzanians authority. Kenyan constitution( Presidential Oathing binds him to protect people and Not Business I stand corrected). Jeffa A King is constantly complaining of the the failures of Tanzania in the community. Other country's have told Tanzanians to quit if not satisfied with the community but Kenya Keeps quiet. I happen to have been to Uganda a Number of times and My Ugandan Friends belief strongly that Uganda Commands supperior Military Network compared to kenya. This is a daring experience and worst is that Ugandan Media has been reporting of Ugandan Marines defeating Kenyan army on the Island(Migingo). True facts are that Kenyans are the Leading investors in uganda!! To you Wana Bidii!! What shall be the future of The East African Community when another country decides to breach the very law it signed. Why should Kenya seek the intevention of Rwanda Burundi and Tanzania in this clear issue. During the post-election violence, It was reported that Kibaki had sought the Military Aid from Museveni to quel the rioting Kenyans. The case was noticed at Moi Referal Hospital when the foreign Forces invaded the hospital. Kibaki owes Museveni a debt! Its true that Museveni always goes to grap the resources for the countries he has Aided(DR Congo). To my surprise, the Man(Kibaki) who vowed in the Evening to protect Kenyans seem not bothered at all. Am not sure if Kisumu City has a Military camp? Even a Navy station!! Why sent APs with G3s Riffles when another person sents elite forces? Why tell helpless Fishermen not to panic when you are not protecting them. Telling Kibaki to confront the problem is simply playing a quitar to the goat. The so called East Africa community does not resonate well among Kenyans and Any ugly incident between two Governments will leave irrepairable damages to the community. The further military build-up by Ugandans on the Island will accelerate the levels of Hatred Kenyans are developing towards Museveni and Ugandans. Already there is wide spread tension among Kenyans leaving in Uganda and Especially the students. Did you know that Kenyans Learning in Uganda account for 20% of the total Foreign Exchange!! Slightly above its tourism industry. The ODM bandwagon belief that Museveni had a hand in the bangled elections!! This makes the relationshhip of the two countries slippery. Museveni has become very un-popular amongst the Ugandans as Majority are admiring the lifestyle of Kenyans and are raising up in demand for improved democracy. Museveni's boat is sinking and he would want to start such aggression so as to pull Ugandans together and make them hate Kenyans. Any form of war will be very disastrous and Uganda is bound to feel the heat straight away. Tanzanians on the other hand do not impress the idea of the community and the CLAMOUR for New constitution is threatening the powers of NDUGU KIKWETE who unfortunately thinks the Culture of Kenyans has spilled over to Ndugu Watanzania wenye Amani. Museveni is simply demanding for the pay he rentered to Kibaki and he is also using the Island to play politics. Uganda has no Military Muscle to match Kenya's Disciplined Forces. In any case, A War will mean the end of the East African community, Surrendering the Island will mean that even Somali's Al-Shabaab fighters can just take over North Eastern and make that A Muslim state!! Kibaki should simply Deploy the Kenyan Navy to cause a Stand-off then trigger diplomatic negotiations. " Amani haipatikani ila kwa Ncha ya Upanga" summarises the Swahili proverb. SIMIYU PS.
