Dear Sir,

RE: BRUTAL MURDER OF YOUTHFUL IBRAHIM MOHAMED HUKA BY GSU OFFICER IN ISIOLO ON 20/05/2017

I am kindly petitioning your esteemed instutition regarding the above emotive subject which is not only inhumane but also a beastly act on the part of the security officer meted against an unarmed and innocent 21-year-old man who has not committed any unlawful acts. Ibrahim was shot dead during a peaceful political procession along the Marsabit – Garba Tulla junction in Isiolo town on Saturday at 4.30 PM by General Service Unit officer who had gone to clear the road so that they may proceed with their Journey.

Supporters of a Jubilee Party team who were on a peaceful roadshow candidly reported that the officer aimed and shot at the deceased as he was running for his life. Among prominent personalities who witnessed the incidents include Isiolo County gubernatorial candidate on jubilee tickets; Hon. Abdul Bahari, Isiolo North Member of Parliament Hon. Joseph Samal, Senatorial aspirant Mohammed Liban, Woman Representative aspirant Rehema Jaldesa and Isiolo South Aspirant Abduba Molu.

The deceased was rushed to Isiolo County Referral Hospital which was a few kilometres away from the scene of crime. Isiolo Medical Superintendent Stephen Kiluva confirmed that the man was already dead upon arrival. Detectives who visited Isiolo County Referral Hospital reported that the man was shot in the head. It was also reported that the political leaders and other stakeholders had earlier raised a complaint to security officers specifically to Isiolo County Commissioner George Natembeya on a plot by their rivals to disrupt their rally and they did seek security for their supporters and that of opponents as well. However, their plight to the County security boss fell on deaf ears. The broader picture here is one of utter impunity and our fear is that the pattern of extrajudicial killings will only worsen with such trigger-happy police officers supervised by compromised security bosses.

The action and complacency on the part of the officers outrightly infringes on many basic rights and freedoms protected in Kenya’s constitution and international human rights law, time is now for the Kenyan security organs to focus on how Kenyan security agencies have for long violated human rights with impunity and discipline such rogue officers especially during this season of electioneering.

Moreover, the Kenyan Constitution, upholds both repealed and present, which included or includes the right to life, the prohibition of torture, inhuman and degrading treatment, the right to a remedy, the right to security of the person and the right to effective remedy, among other provisions.

The Kenyan laws which includes; the Police Act, the Criminal Procedure Code, the International Crimes Act, and various other acts governing the police and policing, among others are clear and well stated.

In addition to that, the International treaties to which Kenya is a party, including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment, the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights, the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, and the Treaty of the East African Community buttresses the existing homeland security laws.

The Nuremburg Trials forever redefined the course of history. That never again shall any man violate the dignity of others without accountability. Men in uniform who wield the comparative advantage of power and instruments of State over their people can no longer abuse such positions without recourse in law.

In this regard, we are demanding thorough investigations into this heinous killing and prosecute those who are responsible and establish a special team within the Department of Public Prosecutions to ensure that investigations and prosecutions are credible and independent. We want severe action to be taken against this heartless officer within the next 24 hours.

Yours Sincerely,

CONCERNED ISIOLO RESIDENT

OPEN LETTER TO ISIOLO COUNTY COMMISSIONER MR. GEORGE NATEMBEYA REGARDING HIS SHOOT-TO-KILL ORDERS

George Natembeya-Isiolo County Commissioner

The attention of the Independent medico-Legal Unit (IMLU) has been drawn to a statement you are said to have issued during a peace meeting in Isiolo on Thursday 12th November 2015 authorizing shoot-to kill-orders against anyone found carrying firearms.

This order, in your view would contribute to curb general insecurity and cattle rustling in Isiolo County. Whereas we condemn crime in all its manifestations, and appreciate you efforts in enhancing public safety and security, it is our considered opinion that your orders are in total disregard of the Constitution of Kenya and the law and will only contribute to aggravating insecurity.

We wish to unequivocally express our dismay at this order that is not only a license for extrajudicial executions but also militates against the rules of natural justice, where one is assumed innocent until proven guilty through a competent judicial process. In addressing crime and insecurity the law has to be safeguarded and such an order is an outright affront to the provision of article 26 of the Constitution on the right to life and an unacceptable violation of the National Police Service Act 2011.

We’d wish to bring to your attention the provisions of the sixth schedule of the National Police Service Act 2011 that sets out the rules and procedures on use of force and firearms by police officers. The law is categorical that force and firearms will only be used where less extreme means are inadequate; ostensibly to protect life and for self-defence. As such, blanket shoot-to-kill orders from anyone must be treated with the contempt they deserve. Any directive contrary to the set legal guidelines must be considered void ab initio. We remain ready to discuss with your good office the possibility of supporting the establishment of the County Policing Authority in Isiolo County with a view to putting in place a more sustainable approach to public safety and security in the county.

We highly value and recognize the critical role played by the National Police Service in fostering public safety and security and it is our considered view that intelligence policing should be strengthened to avert criminal activities not only in Isiolo county but the entire country. Shoot-tokill directives are a thing of the past and should not be replacements to an integrated community driven security agenda for this country.

It is for this reason that we demand that you denounces this directive in order to allay public fears and reassure residents of Isiolo County and Kenyans in general of your commitment to safeguarding the Constitution and the rule of law. We at the same time urge police officers to ignore Mr. Natembeya’s orders and continue serving Kenyans within the ambits of the law.

We appeal to the Director of Public Prosecutions to investigate these utterances with a view to instituting proceedings against Mr. Natembeya.

Signed: Peter Kiama,


Executive director

INSECURITY TAKING CENTRE STAGE AHEAD OF GENERAL ELECTIONS.

 

By Salad Malicha

Kenya is approaching towards one of the most polarised polls slated for 8th August this year and as such security for the citizen needs to be spruce up by the government.

However, going by the recent spate of violence/killings related to the upcoming general election in different parts of the country, such as Baringo, Laikipia, Uasin gishu and Isiolo, Kenyans cannot say that they live in a safe and secure country. Increasingly, following the widespread incidences of violence, a “siege mentality” seems to be taking root in the Country. Unfortunately, oftentimes when a nation feels that it is under siege, especially on matters of security, it is normally seen as “acceptable” to suspend fundamental freedoms and liberties in the name of maintaining national security and keeping everybody safe. The government has the sole constitutional duty of keeping the country safe and secure. The foregoing duty cannot be abrogated. It is a duty that the government effectively discharges in partnership with the community.

The Constitutional provision on the rule of law under Article 10 binds all State organs and all people to observe and respect the rule of law and embrace Constitutionalism. The National Security organs are expected to observe respect of Human Rights and Human dignity and the rule of law. The National security organs are duty bound to protect the country against external and internal threats and in exercising this mandate respect for Human Rights is very fundamental. Failure of the security agencies to exercise this mandate has led to security threats facing the country. Recently in Isiolo town,  a young man was brutally murdered in cold blood by GSU security officer who were trained by taxpayers’ money . Strangely, the deceased man did not break any aspect of the law. As a matter of fact the deceased man was in a peaceful Jubilee political roadshow afew hours after President Uhuru’s visit to the County to drum-up support for the Jubilee party. The deceased young man was neither armed nor was he taking part in any kind of protest or demonstration. Perhaps, the only weapon the young man was putting on Jubilee shirt. I am fully convinced that such reckless action by the security tantamount to extra-judicial killing sponsored by the State. Extra-judicial killings do not only constitute a violation of the right to life. It is an affront to the rule of law and the realization of justice which are key ideals in a democratic society. Further, the Constitution prohibits the taking away of life in unconstitutional ways.

 

We stand united in prayer with the ever peaceful community of Isiolo town who are counting losses and are living in constant fear and anger following that ugly incident. At this moment in time, we stand with the bereaved family and friends of the killed man during this time of difficulties. May God give them strength.

 

Chapter Fourteen – National Security; Article 238 – Principles of National Security. National Security is the protection against internal and external threats to Kenya’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, its people, their rights, freedoms, property, peace, stability and prosperity, and other national interests.

 

As a country, we need to stand together and reject the culture of brutality, impunity and violence by our own security officers especially during this electioneering period. Security chiefs in Isiolo County have been compromised by known politician for last four months and sadly they are working at the behest of this politician.

 

The time has come for the government to implement security sector reforms and put in place community policing in our society because the much hyped ‘Nyumba kumi’ initiative is dead at its inception.

DID SENATOR KUTI PANIC OR IT WAS STRATEGIC MOVE TO DEFECT TO NARC?

The defection of Isiolo Senator Mohamed Abdi Kuti to Narc-Kenya from Jubilee Party has brought interesting dimensions into the gubernatorial race. The question is; was it strategic or survival tactic?

Kuti is eyeing the Governor’s seat held by Godana Doyo. His defection now leaves former Tana Athi River Development Authority chairman Abdul Bahari as the sole JP aspirant for the seat in the nominations slated for Tuesday.

Two weeks ago, Governor Doyo decamped to Party for Development and Reforms from JP, a move that left the race to Kuti and Bahari.

Kuti, while accompanied by his running mate Abdi Issa and four MCAs, announced his defection at Narc-Kenya headquarters in Nairobi. The Senator claimed he was prompted to make the shift following claims that the Bahari camp planned to rig him out.

“I moved because I lost faith with the election board that was inclined towards my rivals,” he claimed.

Last week, the party dismissed three returning officers but the board chairman Abduba Sama said it was done by the head office.

Kuti on Wednesday wrote a resignation letter to JP after his camp’s plea for their grievances to be addressed fell on deaf ears. Some local pundits view his defection as a way to counter a directive by Borana Council of Elders who last Monday asked all Borana clans to vote for Bahari at nomination stage. The elders led by their chairman Abdullahi Haji Gonjobe summoned all the four Borana aspirants to make the announcement. Apart from Bahari and Doyo, other gubernatorial aspirants who attended the meeting were Hussein Golicha (Kanu) and Adan Kabelo (ODM).

CONFIDENCE

“It was evident that majority of Borana would have voted for Bahari and his running mate (Domiciano Mainge),’’ said Daud Tari, an NGO official.

He said Kuti has every reason to be concerned.

“His defection is not going to change anything. Our camp still has majority of Borana and non-Borana speakers like Meru, Turkana, Somali clans and Samburu. Kuti has panicked and written his own political obituary,’’ said Jarso Guyo, from Bahari’s camp.

Governor Doyo says he is confident of retaining his seat in the August elections owing to his development projects. “We have transformed our county in just four years and the voters are with me,” he says.

KUTI’s RUNNING MATE FACES SHOCKING INTEGRITY ISSUES

 

EXCLUSIVE

By Salad Malicha

Senator right in dark glasses (Centre) and Dr. Abdi Greek on the right

Isiolo Senator, Mohammed Kuti, has picked a former UK-based Doctor as his running mate in the race for the Isiolo gubernatorial seat. Dr Kuti officially declared that Dr. Abdi Ibrahim Issa alias Abdi Kishoto will be his running mate in his bid to clinch the county top seat in the August election.

Strange as it may be, after digging into the background check of one Dr. Abdi Ibrahim Issa alias Abdi Greek Issa’s activities in UK, some shocking revelations according to The SUN Tabloid have emerged that the expose’ might end his prospective political ambition. This has emerged in the wake of new constitutional requirements on integrity for all aspirants participating in the August polls.

The SUN tabloid of 3rd October ran a sensational headline; “LICENCE TO ILL- Investigation reveals dodgy GPs (General Practioners) getting cash to help minicab and Uber drivers fake medical test over fitness to drive”

In United Kingdom, General Practioners (GPs) are required to sign a medical statement that prospective PHV drivers are fit and healthy. But, an undercover investigation found three doctors who allegedly approved minicab medical forms for money.

The Transport for London (TfL) PHV driver licence application asks GPs to check prospective cabbies for details of cardiovascular disease, seizures and problems with eyesight or injuries.

And it states: “This form should be taken to a registered medical practitioner who has access to your full medical history, typically your GP, for completion.

“If it is not completed by someone who has access to your full medical history this could lead to delays in the processing of your medical.”

However, an investigation by The Sun newspaper journalist posing as a PHV driver found that Dr Ashraful Haque Mirza, a GP in Morden, South London, allegedly accepted a cash bribe to fake the results of eyesight and blood pressure tests.
The journalist was passed as medically fit despite telling Dr Mirza that his vision, “gets a bit blurry”. To which the doctor allegedly replied: “Right, OK, fine, they won’t give you any problems with that”.

A PHV driver applying for a renewal of his TfL minicab licence was also filmed leaving Dr Mirza’s surgery and said: “I live in Hounslow, my GP said the health checks would cost £150 and take eight days. Here it takes five minutes and £50.”

Another doctor in Barking, East London, also agreed to sign off the TfL forms presented by the undercover reporter and falsely declare he had seen his full medical history.
And it was further alleged that a minicab company had contracted a doctor in Hounslow, Dr Abdi Greek, to fast track the medical forms of drivers without asking to see the medical records of the PHV licence applicants.

A spokesman for Uber said:

‘There should be tough action against any GP who has falsified medical certificates and any test centres found to cheat the system should be closed down.’

Steve McNamara, general secretary of the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association, also praised The Sun for lifting the lid.
Labour MP and Transport Committee member of House of Commons Graham Stringer said: “This is a serious scandal which is putting the public at risk.”

TfL chief operating officer for surface transport Garrett Emmerson said: “We take all allegations of fraud very seriously and will investigate.”

Chief executive of the General Medical Council Niall Ferguson said the organisation would be investigating the claims, “as a matter of urgency”.

In the wake of such startling revelations the fate of one Dr. Abdi hitherto lies with Multi-Agency Team dealing with matters of those individuals pursuing political office in Kenya.

Dr. Abdi Issa Greek who is a British national according to Public Register had the following registered companies. The first one was dissolved, the second he is active Director till today and the last one he resigned as Director.

That politicians with ongoing criminal cases, including those battling corruption and hate speech charges, now risk being locked out of the August General Election in an elaborate bid by vetting agencies to comply with Constitutional requirements on integrity. Those with suspicious degrees running for governor and president, as well as their running mates, will not be safe from the hammer.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), and the Registrar of Political Parties, and Office of the Attorney-General said that they will not leave anything to chance in a bid to clean up Kenyan leadership.

The institutions will enforce compliance with the leadership and integrity requirements by aspirants in the forthcoming General Election. 

Aspirants for political office are asked to declare if they have ever been convicted of any offence and sentenced to serve for at least six months, misused public resources, removed from register of members of professional organisations, dismissed from employment due to integrity, or whether they had been subject of criminal or disciplinary proceedings as public officers.

In this unfortunate scenario, Dr. Abdi Ibrahim alias Abdi Greek alias Abdi Kishoto should brace for hard times ahead with the electoral vetting agencies owing to the fact that he grossly violated basic tenets of Leadership and Integrity Act by engaging in wrongful conduct whilst in the furtherance of personal benefit and much worse falsifying official record.

I hope the vetting agencies will swing into action and deal with this matter expeditiously.

DOYO IS ALLERGIC TO BORANTITI

DOYO? BORANTITI?

By Zizama Duba

(Unedited scripts)

Hawayuni Isiolo People. Nagaa fayya qabthu? Bokale yarobe, Sorr qobatani? Waqi robb qufaa nagaa nutochina.

It is my hope and prayer that this finds you all, in good health!

JUBILEE PARTY PRIMARIES NIGHTMARE

Now that Jubilee primaries  is around the corner, it’s giving us yet another time to rate our current leadership in order to make an informed decision. Let’s begin by analysing the current  regime so that it aid us all in making decision.

As you are all aware, in 2013, the sitting Isiolo County Boss  rode solely on Borana support across the clan divide and clinched the gubernatorial seat. He was voted in to champion the development of Isiolo County and raise the living standards of its  residents. Today, let’s delve into assessment of his regime, regime that has killed the hopes of the poor! The regime that has been on looting spree since its inception, the regime in which Isiolo County went to its lowest ebb! The only county government that has nothing in its name ever since it came into being!

 

We will start by highlighting a few of his sins as we can’t fit them all into one post, because it will take us forever to pen every misdeed of the incumbent.

Immediately Doyo occupied the governor’s office, he threw in the dustbin his elections pledges and embarked on a journey that proved disastrous to our county.

Sad as it is, it has come to our attention that for the last few days, to be precise, ever since Kuti declared his candidature, County mandarins are trying to hoodwink Isiolo residents that they should vote for Doyo under the guise of Borantiti, we Must pen truth about doyo’s lack of an iota of borantiti! Truth are always put into perspective because it is truth, it neither has something to do with killing doyo’ s chance of re-election nor being about supporting election of his opponents! It is about truth and speaking truth is an act of ibada, Islamically.

 

CABINET APPOINTMENTS

When Doyo selected his cabinet, in Borana community he chose people from only three clans: Warjidda, Sakuye and Karayu. He in essence thought  that the rest of the Borana clans are either not Borana enough to hold bigger positions or are inconsequential in that they don’t have the numbers to worry him in 2017 elections.

To make the matters worse, his appointments were based on cronyism rather than merit, in most cases. Within his cabinet, he made sure that the appointed Borana sons would not hold otherwise crucial dockets like finance, Health etc. This negates County Government Act

To add insult to the injury, Doyo blocked employment of competent Borana sons and daughters which was done by Isiolo County Public Service Board.

They include:

 1. Abdinassir Ali -Chief Finance Officer

     2. Salad Kikuyu-Head of Supply Chain

     3. Halima Ibrahim- Head of Revenue

     4.Roba Qanchora- Head of Treasury

     5.Hussein Wako Gedho- Director Land, Survey and planning

We were all  hopeful that the  new team would put in place efficient system that would be accountable to the people of Isiolo . There were hopes that they would put in place a  system that would guarantee collection of local revenue and introduce tougher curbs to stop insider dealing that has brought down our county. However, the hope did not last! Doyo and other county Mandarins wouldn’t allow ‘Outsiders‘ to come in and bring to an end the culture of looting that has become norm.

 

OTHER APPOINTMENTS 

One of the silent crucial positions that has come with Devolved  Governance  is position of Directors! In county like Marsabit, the sitting governor appointed his kinsmen to this position because it’s one of ‘big’ positions that its terms are permanent and pensionable while clueless governor Doyo is yet to fill Borana people into the position. The few  appointed to the position do not have appointment letters, hence, their term shall end in April, in less than two weeks time as their boss becomes former Governor.

E.C.D.E TEACHERS AND NURSES 

After reality downed on him that he got nothing to showcase plus fear of the ECDE teachers and ‘health docket workers’ wrath Doyo for the last few weeks has been jumping up and down, He met the ECDE TEACHERS and still looking for very many nurses he denied opportunity with the promise of giving them permanent jobs!

One would wonder, whether that ECDE teacher would want his/her salary which has not been paid for several months or would believe in (what in Borana dialect is called ‘rarag‘) verbal improvement of work terms to permanent and pensionable.

 

Mind you, we have not talked about the very many Borana youths employed as Nutritionist, Health workers etc by the same county Government that believes that white color jobs are not meant for Borana, who were later sacked citing allegations that employment process were done illegally, some workers lacked certificate etc. Mark you, some were never paid for the few months they worked.

 

MANAGEMENT  OF COUNTY FUNDS

Doyo embarked on embezzlement of county funds immediately he assumed office. He bought Storeys abound of properties in Isiolo, Nakuru  and Nairobi amongst other places, through proxies. Of course with funds meant for providing basic amenities and services to the people of Isiolo. The perennial Modo Gashe and Basa water problems, the poor state of Health sector, the poor state of our roads to name but a few are testaments to the diversion of funds meant for these services to his and his few  cronies pockets.

Poor school facility

With the billions of funds at his disposal, there is no single health facility, no single ECD classroom, no anything, in the name of current regime, the few millions of CDF managed by Bahari and Kuti have done wonders if the Doyo regime is anything compare with!As such, Today, as we head to nominations, people should wisely  choose between Hon. Bahari and Senator Kuti.

 

 

 

 

 

 

AWARDING OF TENDERS 

This is probably Doyo’s greatest undoing. His only beneficiaries are  group of shrewd and notoriously corrupt business men who partner with corrupt leaders to award themselves tenders, grab land and anything valuable that is meant for the public which are in control of the corrupt leaders. Doyo went neck deep into this sinful and despicable partnership that robbed the residents of Isiolo off the right to these resources meant for their development.

He sidelined  Borana people in  awarding of tenders. With many of this team being people from Mandera. The unholy partnership culminated into him declaring that he is a member of Birkaya clan of Garri Tribe from Mandera. He in so doing, denounced his Warjidda kinship and Borana kinship at large.

People like former Isiolo South Legislature Hon Abdul Bahari Ali have made at least  one or two Borana millionaires in every centres, while with the billions, Doyo has not made even a single Uso Harito Millionaire, no wonder Uso Harito have dumped  him for The ever absentee Kuti.
