Former DCI boss George Kinoti- was just a stage master in charge of escorting celebrated thieves while accompanied by Yusuf Haji-a court poet equipped with corruption poems that were further recited and wrongly interpreted by old tired corrupt judges, who were impotent to jail wrongdoers using a copied constitution written in a hurry.
We had serious mega corruption cases in Kenya for all those who took part in stealing money meant for developments- BUT all their cases, were terminated in a hurry to allow the new administration’s vetting process to proceed without anyone disqualified.
Kinoti, had watertight cases of murder and corruption. Still, all were watered down through impunity or bribes, thus showing no seriousness in the war on corruption or any other crime in Kenya.
Will the untouchable ever be convicted in Kenya?
Will cases of the disappearance of people like Julie Ward, Musando, Albert Muriuki, Dickson Bogoko, and many others ever be concluded?
It remains to be seen, but the accumulating corruption cases, the disappearance of people, and murder cases- should be dealt with in a hurry to convince Kenyans of the Government’s commitment- by convicting and jailing all those previously charged with corruption and crimes against humanity.
Kenyans are now tired of watching the same comedies, through and through, and it’s a high time the judiciary drew the curtain and changed their costumes as the play is too boring and leaves a lot to be desired.
If they don’t, Kenyans will take them as jokers and politicians as parasites on a mission to amass more wealth without thinking of the many in society living in abject poverty.
The new administration must get down to work without the blame games of the previous regime and prove to Kenyans that the bottoms-up approach that elevated Kenya Kwanza, is the best solution to alleviate poverty, corruption, ignorance and diseases.
