It is a sigh of relief that the tenth parliament (the devil’s workshop) has finished its devilish business and the curse will move to their homes. Kenneth Marende will go down in history as the speaker who presided over the plunder of this country by members of parliament. It may claim to have been the parliament that gave us a new constitution, but is still the same that watered down the substance of it by petty nocturnal amendments.
I harbour no ill will against the nocturnal rat eating finance minister of Kenya the unhonourable Robinson Njeru Githae from Ndia in Kirinyaga, but I find him to be a callous and vicious ravager. This is a man whose actions defy logic or simply put, common sense. For while we Kenyans and the rest of the world are mourning the senseless killings taking place in the Tana Delta, this person has the audacity to sneak devilish provisions which seek to give members of parliament rights and privileges hitherto unknown and unheard of in any country in the world. Amongst a raft of goodies that they dream of, Githae through his handwriting and his henchmen seek a retirement package composed of a gratuitous Shs. 9.3 million each, (This magic figure was arrived at by calculating 31 per cent of the MPs’ basic pay of Shs. 200,000 per month from the time they were sworn in on January 15, 2008 up to August 26, 2010 then 31 per cent of their gross pay of Sh851,000 as severance pay from August 27, 2010 until January 14, 2013 when their term expires.) armed security guard, diplomatic passport for both MP and spouse, access to VIP lounges at all airports within Kenya and a maintenance expense as contained in The Retirement Benefits (Deputy President and Designated State Officers) Bill 2012. It is stupid that the Shs. 9.3 million gratuity is the one which had been contained in amendments to the Finance Bill 2012 and rejected by Kibaki as unsustainable and unconstitutional.
This is a joke take too far. I write this because I know that President Emilio Mwai Kibaki will not assent to this madness. Kibaki is an old man whose retirement affairs are already taken care of by the state; he will never be in want of money. The carrot that they are throwing his way will be ignored, but those cursed people who are pulling the strings in this absurd theatrics must be made to understand that we are entirely fed up by their devilish and mischievous antics; they wish for a burial, they will get a proper one. If any of them makes it to the ballot after nominations, let them be sure that those who still have brains will tell them as Nikita Khrushchev would say, “Мы вас похороним!”,we will bury you!
I want Jakom Raila Amolo Odinga a key plank in this half loaf government to have the courage, conviction and the heart to act not merely “condemn” he is a general commanding troops who have commuted a mutiny bordering on treason and they must be punished accordingly, Uhuru Kenyatta to strongly condemn the actions of his blue-eyed boy the abovementioned Githae with the proclivity to eating rats, Samoei Ruto to tell this greedy lot that their game is up, Musalia Mudavadi if he still has his voice to speak up against this travesty. It is commendable, laudable and a step in the right direction that Mrs. Sarah Serem, the Salaries and Remuneration Commission boss has already come out in no uncertain terms to put parliament on the spot for passing this bill knowing it to be unconstitutional.
To my fellow decent voters, we are decent people who respect the laws of God and the land, we cannot hang these heartless politricians at Uhuru Park, but we can do something about them. Let us execute this revolution by rejecting the sons and daughters of lucifer who only comes to steal, kill and destroy. Do not vote for anyone who was a member of this parliament or you will have yourselves to blame for the next five years. Let us look for the qualitative and not quantitative aspects in leaders.
