Lifted from africanpress on March 13th, 2007

“Michael Kanda is reacting to the article in Kenya Stockholm Blog written by Jared Odero. Below Michael Kanda’s article below, we publish Odero’s article so that the readers can judge for themsleves. Read Kanda’s story and after, get to Odero’s and judge! by APN editorial

Michael Kanda writes:

It appears that the media are following Kikuyus everywere. Even if a Kikuyu gets appointed to the position of Director of Public Toilets, they will criticise it as further evidence of tribalism. It is as if Kikuyus are not Kenyans.

Kibaki’s government is far from Kenyatta as those who were there will attest. It is also radically different from Moi’s. I was surprised to find that some of the leading institutions are not being run by Kikuyus, given all the reports about Kikuyu domination. NSSF, Kenya Airways, Defence, Police, Kenya Ports Authority, University of Nairobi, Kenya Polytechnic, Public Prosecutions, Kenya Wildlife Serivice, KARI, TSC, etc.

The appointment of Prof. Ndun’gu has been used to show that non-Kikuyus have been sidelined and have not been appointed to any important position in the government and its institutions. Nothing could be further from the truth as the list below shows clearly.

Note: the so called GEMA people are not included and not all the parastals, directorates and departments are represented here. Also not included are lots and lots of Chairmen appointed by the President.

Judge for yourselves.

This is what Odero and other ODM-Kenya diehards would not have us see. The name of the game is trying to win votes using fear and disinformation, apparently the focus of the campaign being illeterate Kenyans. Kenyans are in dire need of a party that has a roadmap for building Kenya and uplifting it’s citizens. Unfortunately both Narc and ODM lack in these aspects.
The furture does indeed seem bleak.

Odero writes:

Tribal Appointments In Kenya: A Reflection Of Kibaki’s Ethnic Bias?

Observations by one Dr. Job Obonyo in cyberspace reflect President Kibaki’s three pillars;

(a) TRIBALISM (ethnic favoritism & nepotism),

(b) ETHNOCENTRIC RESOURCE ACCUMULATION by all means (i.e. systematic corruption and irregular public assets acquisitions) and

(c) a SYCOPHANCY-BASED system of unbounded politics which ensures that party loyalty is transient. The bitter truth – Kibaki is perpetrating extreme tribalism with a bid to promote an ethnic agenda most uninhibited strategically in: FINANCE, EDUCATION and INTERNAL SECURITY, favoring the Mt. Kenya Region—Gikuyu, Meru, Embu (GEMA now called MEGA).

FINANCE MINISTRY (Controls Finance, Banking, & Economy in general): Minister – Amos Kimunya – Kikuyu; Asst. Minister- Peter Kenneth – Kikuyu; Permanent Secretary – Joseph Kinyua – Kikuyu; Economic Secretary – Kamau Thuge – Kikuyu; Pensions Secretary – Anne Mugo – Kikuyu; Budgetary Director -P.B. Ngugi -Kikuyu; ERD Director – Kenneth Mwangi -Kikuyu; D/Finance Secretary – Mwirichia -Meru

CENTRAL BANK OF KENYA: Governor- Prof. Ndung’u – Kikuyu (newly appointed); Dep. Governor – John Gikonyo -Kikuyu

CONSOLIDATED BANK OF KENYA: Chairman – Phillip Njuki – Kikuyu; Chief Executive Officer – David Wachira – Kikuyu. 

KENYA REVENUE AUTHORITY (the worst case):

1. Commisssioner General: Michael Waweru – Kikuyu
2. Board Secretary: Mrs Ng’ang’a – Kikuyu
3. Senior Deputy Commissioner, Investigation and Enforcement: Mr. Joseph Nduati -Kikuyu
4. Deputy Commissioner, Investigation and Enforcement: Mr. Namu Nguru – (GEMA)
5. Deputy Commissioner, Administration: Mr. Karimi – Meru
6. Deputy Commissioner Procurement: Ms. Murichu – Kikuyu
7. Commissioner Customs: Mrs. Wambui Namu – Kikuyu
8. Senior Deputy Commissioner (Customs): Ms. Githinji – Kikuyu
9. Deputy Commissioner, Enforcement (Customs): Mr Maina – Kikuyu
10. Deputy Commissioner, Finance: Ms Wachira-Kikuyu
11. Commissioner Domestic Taxes (LTO)- Mr Njiraini – Kikuyu
12. Deputy Commissioner: Mrs. Mwangi – Kikuyu
13. Senior Deputy Commissioner, Finance: Mrs. King’ori – Kikuyu
14. Senior Assistant Commissioner, Security: Major Kariuki – Kikuyu
15. Senior Deputy Commissioner, Southern Region: Wagachira – Kikuyu

Non-GEMA top employees were sacked in 2006. Search in eastandard.net archives (5/8/2006) or http://www.eastandard.net/archives/cl/hm_news/news.php?articleid=1143956368&date=5/08/2006

CAPITAL MARKETS AUTHORITY: Board Chair – Chege Waruingi -Kikuyu; CEO – Edward N’talami – Meru; DIRECTORATE OF PUBLIC PROCUREMENT: Chief Procurement Officers – 23 out of 36 first appointees are all from GEMA. The rest of Kenya = the remaining 13 (out of the 36).

KENYA RE-INSURANCE CO.: Chairman of Board – Nelius Kariuki – Kikuyu; Chief Executive Officer – Johnson Githaka – Kikuyu; Financial controller – John Kinyua – Kikuyu (The latter two were just recently sacked for grand corruption.)

MINISTRY OF EDUCATION: Minister – Prof George Saitoti – Kikuyu
Asst. Minister(s) – Beth Mugo – Kikuyu
Kilemi Mwiria – Meru
Permanent Secretary – Karega Mutahi – Kikuyu
Director Basic Education – Mary Njoroge -Kikuyu
Director City Education – Margaret Thiong’o- Kikuyu

Kenya Institute of Education (KIE): Director – Gabriel Muita -Kikuyu; Higher Education Loans Board (HELB): Chairman – H.M. Kimura -Kikuyu. Commission for Higher Education (CHE): Head of scholarships/credentialing: Snr. Asst. Commissioner- George Njine -Kikuyu; Head of Administration (Asst. Comm) – Margaret Kobia – Meru

MINISTRY OF INTERNAL SECURITY & PROV. ADM: Minister- John Michuki – Kikuyu; Asst. Minister – Peter Munya – Meru; Permanent Secretary – Cyrus Gituai – Kikuyu; the Director of National Security Intelligence Service – Brig. Michael Gichangi – Kikuyu; CID Director – Simon Gatiba Karanja- Kikuyu; AP Commandant – K. Mbugua – Kikuyu; GSU Commandant – Mathew Iteere –Gema; Deputy & Asst. Commissioners of Police – majority – Kikuyu. Note: Munya replaced the late Asst. Minister Mirugi Kariuki and Mirugi’s son replaced his father as the MP of Nakuru Town. President Kibaki campaigned for Mirugi’s son to win the seat.

Provincial Commissioners (PCs) 3 out of 8: Nairobi – J. Waweru – Kikuyu; Coast – Earnest Munyi – Kikuyu; NEP – Kiritu Wamae – Kikuyu. District Commisssioners: 38 out of 71 are GEMA with most concentrated in: Rift Valley (19); Eastern (8); Coast & Western (3 each).

MINISTRY OF DEFENSE: Commander-in-Chief (All Armed Forces) -President Mwai Kibaki – Kikuyu; Minister – Njenga Karume – Kikuyu; Asst. Minister – none; Permanent Secretary – Zachary Mwaura – Kikuyu; Army Commandant – Lt. Gen. Augustine Njoroge – Kikuyu; Dep. Air Force Commandant – Maj. Gen. Jackson Waweru – Kikuyu.

During recent visits to Nyayo House and Jogoo House in Nairobi, Job was left literally speechless. The corridors brazenly expressed this explicit ethnic favoritism through the names displayed on door exteriors. As he entered some offices, he was ushered in with greetings in deep vernacular lyrics. According to him, Kibaki has taken us decades back into the dark ages and we must all fight to build a better and inclusive nation for all our children’s future.

    March 13th, 2007 at 1:42 pm From us in APN

    Tribalism should never be allowed to kill Kenya. Kenya Stockholm Blog published Odero’s article on Kibaki’s appointments. Now Kanda has reacted and we feel that the two articles are very important now that we are heading towards elections.

    It is important to understand what is going on, who is writting what and the reasons behind the whole thing.

    Korir, APN Chief editor

  2. Aggrey Asava Says:
    March 13th, 2007 at 3:11 pm Odero is still right. Look at the KRA, what was he thinking?. Can justify why the non-kikuyus were fired?.We can name everybody else to lesser positions because all the important ones have been reserved for GEMA.
  3. Paul Kamau. Says:
    March 13th, 2007 at 6:12 pm I refer to Michael Kanda’s plagiarized list from a Kenyan Website, of non-GEMA employees that counters Odero’s list of GEMA employees within key positions in Kenya.

    1. Odero emphasized upon the concentration of GEMA-based employees in key ministries namely, Finance, Education, Internal Security and Defense. WHY? Going by internal politics, these ministries attract and generate a lot of money, thus the argument of resource accumulation and the perpetuation of corruption. It is easier for one tribal group to cover their tracks without allowing other ‘tribes’ to hold key positions in these sensitive positions. By appointing point men in these key positions, President Kibaki holds the pulse of the country. Even in Sweden, the Moderate Party holds strategic positions in the current coalition government. The difference is that there are institutions in Sweden to check and balance their activities. In Kenya, the Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission is headed by a GEMA man who so far has never prosecuted any of ‘his people’.

    2. Can Kanda address the concentration of employees from the Mt Kenya region e.g. at the Kenya Revenue Authority? Are other tribes that he shows on his list not capable of sharing and managing these positions too?

    This is the election year, and there is speculation that the appointment of Prof Ndung’u as Governor of the Central Bank of Kenya might be a strategy for Narc-Kenya to manufacture/produce extra money for campaigns; thus the need to a GEMA man at the CBK.

    I was in Nairobi last year and was equally shocked at the concentration of people from one tribe in many government offices. Digging trenches, road-cleaning and construction work are done by a majority that speak Mt. Kenya languages. Is this a coincidence?

    At a live music Kenyan function in Stockholm, a non-GEMA female friend was greeted using the Kikuyu language. When she said that she could not speak the language, she was asked “Don’t you speak Kikuyu the national language?” She was so shocked at the arrogance displayed by those men.

    When Assistant Minister Alice Chelaite attended the launching of NARC-Kenya Scandinavia in Stockholm last year, she publicly protested when a prominent Stockholm-based Kenyan from Mt. Kenya said he was happy Narc-Kenya was a party for the House of Mumbi.

    Michael Kanda and other Kenyans let us confront and kill this hydra-headed reptile called TRIBALISM, and not bury our head in the sand by countering with lists as a way of defense. I am from Mt. Kenya region and I can promise you Iam not proud of my people looking at other tribes like second class citizens. I want when I go back to Kenya, I feel good at last am at home and not Sweden where people are racist. Kanda you can help. I was given a nice job with Mt. Kenya Mafia but I declined because am a Kenya and not a kikuyu.

    Paul Kamau. Sweden.

    March 14th, 2007 at 1:06 pm Thank you Paul for calling a spade a spade, by pretending that there is no tribalism in Kenya,we’ll never be able to take any steps towards preventing and stopping it alltogether.
    The strange thing however is that the common man and woman in Kenya are not tribalists, it’s very unfortunate that our leaders use this to shield themselves and what they loot from us the public.
    If you go to any company in kenya you’ll find the common men mixing freely without any problems whatsoever,so i think the tribalism being a creation of the elite few sitting in parliament should be shown the door come december and elect new leaders who have never been to parliament.That would be one hell of a refreshing start!!!!!!!!!!

    March 15th, 2007 at 1:52 pm Hello,
    just a “by the way” in terms of changes I have often wondered why a person with lets say over “100million sh” in the books and with the entire large family doing well keeps on wanting for more money and not more respect and love for his neighbours?

    and even more… why rule till you die yet there younger pple more qualified and willing to rule, why stop them? what really is it with this endless hunger for ” money and wealth” when as they drive home they see there own brothers and sisters suffering not allowed to sell even tomatoes without bribing?

    wheres the love? now we wait for white pple to tell us what to do like we dont know? saidia mwafrika!

    March 15th, 2007 at 11:40 pm Tribalism is our worst enemy and should be eradicated. But unfortunately it is easier said than done. Unless we address the fundamental reasons which endenger it, no amount of list publishing or talking about it will do. I think the problem stems for political parties that are tribal based. Such that, when a member of one tribe becomes the president, his or her party members (read tribe members)get all the prime jobs. The reason is simple, these are the people he or she can trust and whose loyalty is assured.

    If we can address party politics tribalism will also be addressed. What is required are parties that are multiethnic in nature. I have been watching the current ODM presidential candidates as they move around soliciting for votes, but what has struck me is those who accompany them. They are mostly members of their own tribe. If such a person becomes a president who will he or she reward with prime jobs? Is it members of the other candidate’s tribe or his own? Who will he or she trust? Who will be loyal to him or her?

    In western democracies, prime jobs (political jobs) are rewarded according to party affiliation. For the simple reason, it is members of the ruling party who would best implement the policies of the government. Dishing out such positions to members of the opposition would be the easiest way to bring down the government. Western democracies are also not immune to regionalism because if the strength of the ruling party is regional, most of the prime jobs will also go to persons from the same region.

    The Narc and now ODM experiments were good because they aim at building a multiethinic party but I think the fundamentals are wrong and that is why Narc shattered and ODM will follow suit. It may be before the election or afterwards. The same arrogance we see with the candidates will become even worse if one defeats the others in the so called primaries. How would defeated candidates dictate or control the winner? Is there any mechanism to that? I am afraid there isn’t and it will be worse because the winning candidate will have the mandate of the people.

    Only ideology can create multiethnic parties. That is what is seriously lacking in the current political parties. They are based on tribal arithmetic and that is their achilles heel. So let us go back to fundamentals and inject ideology into the parties. Until then tribalism will keep haunting every presidency may it be from Mt. Kenya, Lake region, Rift Valley, Coast and so on. Ideology creates trust and loyalty. That is the key not tribal affilation.

    April 13th, 2007 at 4:57 pm In context to Oderas point of tribalism.I would rather advice him to argue more of their delivery in their services,second he gaana raise more concerns on how we can be able to keep all the civil servants accountable ,promoting transparency in all they do.Even if we get all appointments from Kibaki Family thats should not worry much if the governance is to the mark.therefor Mr.odera lets unite together as futer leaders and put our house in form.for i feel aprt from appointments Kibaki “A WELL DONE”compared to past regime.

    I am shocked at your support of well-visible ethnic bias in these appointments. How do you explain the case of Kenya Revenue Authority? So to you, the concentration of Mt. Kenya people in key sectors is not a problem as you say, as long as they deliver! Let me remind you that when ethnic bias was so visible during the past regime, we Kikuyu people lamented and suffered very much, because we were sidelined. Today, you are supporting tribal appointments, but I wish to caution you that if tables turn at the end of this year and President Kibaki loses, you may live to regret your words. I wonder what you will say if certain ethnic groups become more favored.

    I would like you to read Hon. Koigi wa Wamwere’s commentary in today’s EA Standard titled: “Put merit before tribe in public service jobs” at: http://www.eastandard.net/hm_news/news.php?articleid=1143967383

    May 5th, 2007 at 4:22 pm The political battles among the Kenyans in Stockholm is not new and indeed is very healthy as democracy is being exercised.The truth should be told so that people get to know whom to choose for leadership positions in any of the many organisations they talk about

One thought on “FOLLOWING KIKUYUS EVERYWHERE

  1. Martha Karua has once again had to relauch her website. Reason:
    The first launched sites were not properly designe.
    More likely, I believe she felt duped and had to hire a totally new crow.
    Problem is I don’t see much of a difference now either!
    All i can say is “Martha Karua, welcome to the internet. You will find the community a lot more discerning and will talk to your face!”
    See the brand new site, again!:
