Besides the hunger and the thirst to death, many people in Kenya cannot afford the prices of food today, and that has been proven to be due to corruption on prices. It is not about the price of oil from Libya and if it were, we also know that you have not addressed the question of oil prospection in Kenya properly. You preferred to work with China on this. China is slow to find oil for us for very obvious reasons. Her company, the media and others told you in 2006, drags its feet on this. Canadian companies took a shorter period to find oil in neighboring Uganda which is now bullying our islands and you are quiet.
Why has the Republic of Uganda disrespected our boundaries? Why are you silent about Libya and the rest of Afrika? Do you not care for our continent? Why would you receive Museveni of Uganda at home while his opponent lay in a Kenyan hospital being treated for injuries caused by Ugandan police brutality? What do you think about police brutality in Kenya? Why did your government secretly invite Omar Al Bashir to the launch of our new constitution? Why did you visit Gadaffi in the past to discuss oil in Kenya when you knew too long he had been a dictator? Why did your government reach out to him to try and kill Kenya's case before the International Criminal Court?
I feel that Kenya has sold out our self governance yesterday. Indeed in the first place, the people should have been the main celebrants in the promulgation of the new constitution which we say, we the people of Kenya, give ourselves.” Instead military power took centre stage and we did not even know our full guest list.
In an endless night of watching rights abuse with only a few candles left to burn, I see Bashir astride our lands in Africa, from Chad to Kenya, Cairo and Sudan and I see a graveyard of human rights without hope as Africa looks more to China today. Who will stand with us? The U.S. A is not part of the I.C.C and Europe is being bashed as the colonial past machinery in Africa. Yes, we can stand alone and we did, but how does the world justify international diplomacy, the UN and all the money we pay to have a ministry of Foreign Affairs, and all that Diplomatic Corp in Nairobi from where it serves the Horn of Africa? We are, especially we the women who are raped daily in Congo and in Darfur and other places, betrayed all the time. Where do we begin?
Kenya has bound herself by law to facilitate the work of the ICC because Kenya has signed up to do so. Kenya did not do that. A valid question is, therefore, what does any law, including the constitution of Kenya mean to the Kenyan state? You said we Kenyans are difficult people. Why should we be easy in the circumstances. Honestly, Mr. President, tell me, is your heart concerned about the future generations of Kenya, our children? Really?
