Prime Minister Not Solution To Political Tension in Kenya

Post by SAUTI » Tue Mar 12, 2019 9:11 am

Some leaders suggest that the political tensions experienced during every election in Kenya is due to the winner-take-all kind of politics in the country.

Some have gone ahead to suggest that constitution should be amended so that Kenya will have a President, Prime Minister and 2 Deputy Prime Ministers in order to ”spread out the power”, and thus reduce tensions during and after elections.

Political leaders, mostly governors, have suggested that there should be Regional Governments above the County Governments, and offered reasons why this would be good for Kenya.

Prime Minister

I see 3 possibilities regarding the position of prime minister:

1. Executive Prime Minister elected by MPs, and ceremonial President elected directly by the voters: This would be a disaster for Kenya. It would be possible for a billionaire drug dealer to buy MPs votes to make him Prime Minister.

2. Executive President elected directly by voters as is the case currently, who then appoints non-executive Prime Minister and 2 Deputy Prime Ministers from his party: Apart from creating extra burden on the taxpayer, there is no reason to believe this would reduce political tensions in any way.

If we consider the speaker of the National Assembly to be the no. 3 in the ruling party(Jubilee currently), and the speaker of the Senate to be no. 4, what would change if one was made the PM and the other the deputy PM? How would that reduce political tensions in the country?

Furthermore, in such a scenario where PM and Deputy PMs are above the speakers in terms of seniority, then the speakers’ positions will cease to be as prestigious as before.

3. Executive President elected directly by voters as is the case currently, who then appoints non-executive Prime Minister and 2 Deputy Prime Ministers from the losing political party:

Maybe this would reduce political tension in the country after elections. In that case, Kenya would then be a de facto one party state.

Therefore, people proposing this change to the constitution should go ahead and frame it properly i.e. Do you want Kenya to become a one party state? And the voters would decide.

The Change in Constitution That Would Reduce Political Tension Slightly Without Compromising Democracy or Economy

Currently, there are Minority leaders in Parliament & Senate. Technically, these are leaders of opposition in parliament and senate. The problem is that the presidential candidate for the losing party is left high and dry after the elections.

Let the person who comes no. 2 in the presidential elections be called the leader of opposition, and be provided with a house and paid a salary equal to that paid to the speaker of parliament.

This will has these advantages:

1. It makes the presidential runner-up have some prestige, does not dilute Kenya democracy, and does not create conflict with the elected president.

2. Will help create strong political parties because no serious politician would like to be in a party with no chance of coming no. 2. because there will now be a big difference between no. 2 and the rest.

Regional Governments

Regional governments on top of county governments would bankrupt Kenya. Many governors are for the idea because they can only serve a maximum of 10 years as governors.

However, former governors are free to contest for president, senate or even parliament. It is an insult to Kenyan taxpayers for anyone to suggest they are so important that new political offices should be created in the constitution to accomodate them.

Women Representatives

These positions should remain until the percentage of women in parliament - including women reps - reaches 40%. There should be a provision in the constitution that, if this happens, then there should be no more women reps positions during the next elections and beyond.

The Change in Constitution That Would Reduce Political Tension Greatly & is Good For Wanjikū Too

An MCA, MP, Senator, Governor, Deputy President, President(all politicians in office):

1. Cannot seek medical attention outside the country. If they go for medical treatment outside the country, they automatically forfeit their positions.

2. Cannot enrol their children in private primary or secondary schools. If they have school-going children, then they must enrol them in public schools, else, they forfeit their positions.

Post-secondary education is not affected.

This will make politicians not to need any prompting to ensure health and education standards in the country are of the highest standard.

It will also reduce the number of corrupt people seeking political positions in the country because such people may not be able to adhere to these conditions.

If corrupt people voluntarily keep off politics, then there will be no tension during elections.

A few years ago, a certain Central Kenya MP went to India for medical treatment. He was surprised to meet more than a dozen of his colleagues already there undergoing various medical procedures.

Kenyan politicians going abroad to seek medical treatment has become so common that one popular musician even sang about it.

Bizarrely, there are Kenyan doctors who can treat the ailments that takes Kenyan politicians to India and other countries, but the politicians have no motivation to equip local hospitals so they and other Kenyans can get the same treatment locally.

The MPs/Senators taxpayer-funded medical insurance scheme pays for everything when they go abroad for medical procedures.

If the suggestion that politicians in office automatically forfeit their seats/positions when they go for medical procedures abroad is implemented, the following scenario would be witnessed severally:

A tycoon planning to join politics makes sure he has the latest information about state of Kenyan healthcare. If he realizes that no local hospital is equipped with facilities and personnel to treat major illnesses like cancer or heart surgeries, they will personally fund hospital upgrades and follow up on the progress, to ensure the medical facilities and personnel are first class before his election.

MPs will be raising motion after motion in parliament demanding answers regarding state of local healthcare and education standards because they will be directly affected.

Not a bad thing if you ask me.

Prime Minister Not Solution To Political Tension in Kenya

For Kenya to become more politically stable, the government must unshackle Kenya from the shackles of foreign manipulation of information flow in Kenya.

How do Kenyans exchange news/information currently? Via WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook etc. (all these companies are owned by you-know-who).

Kenyans also share information by commenting on the pages of local news media. The last time I checked, all local media that allow readers to comment, users either comment via Facebook or Disqus etc.

I have evidence that all these entities have shadow banned Kenyans I know(because these Kenyans’ opinion about Kenyan issues go against the global Deep State plans for the country).

Kenyans use Google to search for information that interests them. Google, Facebook and other Big Tech are all rigged. Even the president of the United States has accused them of rigging search results.

This is a very big problem for Kenya than it is for neighbouring countries. If the interest the Global Deep State has in Uganda or Tanzania is X, then their interest in Kenya is 1000X

Kenyans shouldn’t be flattered that the people who run the world have such a huge interest in Kenya because what they want is to destabilise the country and install a puppet as the leader.

National Security

The total control of information flow by people who want to sabotage the country is a great threat to national security. This is what government of Kenya should do to counter this threat:

1. Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) should be well funded. KBC should allow moderated comments on its online articles. It should assign patriotic and knowledgeable people to man the comments section.

It must not use any external platform for comments like Disqus. They must manage the comments themselves. Heck, even Wordpress comes with integrated comments section. It is NOT enough to allow people to comment via Facebook, because of reasons explained above.

2. Ministry of information should liaise with Safaricom to develop a microblogging platform (like Twitter) and another like WhatsApp. I read somewhere that Safaricom was working on such a platform, but I don’t know about the progress.

This is because app stores are rigged, and only an established company with financial muscle to market their products will succeed. These products must use their own localised search engines.

If they decide to use Google or another foreign search engine for their product, then it won’t be any different from the other rigged platforms. I know of a company that started very well as an unbiased social platform, but they made the mistake of integrating Google as their search engine.

Google did what it does best: They started rigging that platform’s search results. People started noticing, and now its just another struggling platform.

3. Ministry of information should liaise with a local university to develop a Kenyan-based search engine.

If the proposals above are implemented, it will go a long way in making Kenya more stable, because for the first time in decades, Kenyans will have access to information that has not been manipulated to make them mental slaves of the Global New World Order monsters.

Some people may think I am exaggerating what’s going on in the world, but in fact, if they knew what is actually going on, they would be shocked.

Question: Don’t you think its strange that many of the most popular Kenyans on Twitter & Facebook are people who are not popular at a personal level, and that some have actually participated in elections in Kenya and received <1% of the vote?
