The ‘Wikileaks’ website recently revealed secret diplomatic cables between the US embassy in Nairobi and the US State Department wherein the US ambassador to Kenya stated that prominent politicians in Kenya are the pillars of corruption and that key government officers are involved in international drug-dealing using their high positions for criminal purposes.
The cables also stated that President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga are the biggest obstacles to ‘reform’ in order to protect their selfish private interests. Then Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), announced that he intends to prosecute 6 persons for ‘crimes against humanity’ following the mass killings that broke out after the December 2007 elections fiasco, 5 of whom are major players in the government! In response Kibaki, Odinga and their ministers publicly came out rebutting all these allegations claiming to be innocent of all accusations; and they prided themselves first and foremost in leading the reform agenda by passing a new constitution as if that was the greatest salvation for the people of Kenya!
The whole country must know where its true salvation lies, and before we discuss the specific issues raised we begin with three important points regarding the diplomatic cables dominating news headlines currently. First, these cables clearly show that western nations remain colonial in nature and they use all their institutions including embassies to conduct espionage in our lands so as to preserve their strategic interests despite the common man being deceived that we achieved independence long ago! Second: The cables reveal no secret in themselves since citizens have long since realizes the true malicious nature of their ‘leaders’ who lead in nothing but corruption and evil, politicians who are nothing but devils hidden in the guise of human beings! Third: Politicians are stupid since they are agent rulers depending upon the west to support their rule yet the selfsame western nations denounce them in secret despite supporting them in public; and, on the other hand, the common man has long since realized the evil nature of his ‘leaders’ that warns of an impending popular revolution as occurred in Tunisia and Egypt.
Starting with the issue of corruption, the so called Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission (KACC) under its newly appointed director pretends to be sweeping corruption out of all ministries. Yet the reality is that they ignore the fact that the key pillars of corruption are the two principals themselves and their corruption networks of major capitalist businessmen supporting them; and these principals are untouched! Mega-corruption scandals such as Goldenberg, Anglo-Leasing, Triton etc wherein the key leaders’ hands are directly implicated has not touched them while others are supposedly ‘suspended’ on half-pay! How many ministers who have looted public funds are in Manyani prison? Which MP is in Kamiti maximum security prison after grabbing public land, and which prominent businessman is in Shimo la Tewa prison for the maize scandal or the free primary education funds scandal? Not even one! Since Kenya gained its false independence to date, commission after commission has been formed to fight corruption yet every day ‘leaders’ steal billions of public funds in broad daylight proving the fact that these commissions are nothing but an illusion meant to seduce the public into sleep.
As for drug-dealing, the reality is that this ‘business’ enriches many leaders globally since research shows that it is the third most profitable business in the world after the sale of petroleum and weapons.
As a matter of course, this sophisticated criminal racket requires the participation of the key government officers to succeed since many state institutions must be work be held in check via a high-level conspiracy e.g. police, national intelligence, sea and air ports etc failing which racket will be cut off. That explains why only neighbourhood peddlers and consumers are arrested in so-called ‘anti-drugs crackdowns’ while well-known big fish continue raking in billions while destroying the country’s youth. So no one should expect the current corrupt system to arrest any major drug dealers except and unless for cosmetic effect to fool people for a while. Yet arresting, torturing and illegally deporting Muslims for false unproven ‘suspicion’ of ‘terrorism’ is acted upon instantaneously by security officers since the government seeks to appease the US despite the same officers claiming not to know who imports container-loads of drugs into the country! Worse than that, any security officers who refuse to cooperate and investigate the drugs trade too seriously are shot dead with the investigations of their deaths leading ‘nowhere’, all because they were spoiling the trade of ‘honourable MPs’. Is this not sufficient proof that prominent hands in government support this evil trade?! As for the US ambassador who pretends to speak firmly and publicly against drugs, does he not know that the US is the world’s leading consumer of illegal drugs yet his own government has failed to prevent the trade? And is the US army not in brutal occupation of Afghanistan yet, instead of cracking down on drug production, the trade has actually increased exponentially compared to the rule of the Taliban?! Does this spying ambassador not see this? But the most grievous mistake is to see so-called Muslim leaders keen to praise this envoy and publicly seek the assistance of the US government, the same government leading a vicious and dirty global crusade against Islam, to combat the drugs menace in Kenya! Do they not remember that Allah سبحانه وتعالى has forbidden us to take our enemies as our allies and protectors?! Allah سبحانه وتعالى says:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا بِطَانَةً مِنْ دُونِكُمْ لَا يَأْلُونَكُمْ خَبَالًا وَدُّوا مَا عَنِتُّمْ قَدْ بَدَتِ الْبَغْضَاءُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَمَا تُخْفِي صُدُورُهُمْ أَكْبَرُ
“O you who believe! Do not take as intimates other than yourselves. They will not fail to corrupt you. They only desire your ruin. Rank hatred has appeared from their mouths, but what their chests conceal is worse!” [Al-imran, 3:118]
As for the ICC, it is dominated by western nations that are the ones who marketed multi-party democracy as the salvation for our countries; but the reality is that the 2007 democratic elections caused mass killings and the destruction of the country. Moreover the ICC is a ‘one-eyed’ court that does not see any evil except that committed by the West’s lowly followers in Africa; as for the major western war criminals who have perpetrated the killings of hundreds of thousands in Iraq and Afghanistan, the ICC does not account them for they are the world’s masters! Such a court cannot serve truth and justice; rather it is used as a stick to enforce the western colonial agenda. However it is clear that all politicians in Kenya from the highest to the lowest associated in the chaos and killings that took place after the 2007 elections; so if not the ICC, who will truly punish these devilish politicians?
As for the new constitution, only a few months have passed since its promulgation and already it is revealed to be a circus illusion only. The same politicians who swore to protect and preserve it are now publicly and shamelessly violating it, famine endangers millions, drug kingpins are the pillars of the government, corruption continues unabated etc; yet the constitution cannot assist the victimized citizen until today! This is due primarily to the fact that this constitution is man-made, whereas humanity requires a valid constitution revealed by our Creator. Thus the correct solution is to replace this experimental constitution, the colonial capitalist ideology and evil politicians wholesale for the true, ideology and politicians.
O citizens of Kenya!
Have you not yet opened your eyes to this reality? Have you not seen that after the ICC 6 were mentioned, many of them pillars of the corrupt system who have amassed public wealth, the government still intends to abuse you by using public funds to pay for the legal expenses at the ICC? The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم spoke truthfully when he said:
“If you have no shame, do whatever you wish!” [Bukhari]
To make things even worse, these politicians are already planning their 2012 election projects via tribal alliances that will incite civil strife in the country again. All this must prove to you that these politicians-no matter how they change their names, parties and alliance-will remain devils who incite hatred among you and they care not if you all burn so that they achieve their selfish ends. Yes, it is time you realized the fallacy and lies of democratic politics that bewitches your politicians if truly you are people of intellect. All politicians are of one stripe without permanent friends or enemies; they ally when their interests merge and break apart when their interests diverge. They believe in the corrupt ideology of their western patrons whom they serve as clients, yet the west itself is unable to resolve its catastrophic economic and political crises using the same capitalist ideology. How blind the patron and his client!
Hizb ut-Tahrir East Africa intellectually and publicly advocates the Islamic ideology with its solutions for all of life’s affairs as your true salvation able to resolve the problems of incapacitating poverty, dangerous tribalism, destructive corruption and devilish politicians! Thus the time has come to liberate yourselves from blindly imitating the western colonialists and accept the ideology revealed by your Creator who understands you and your problems better than you know yourselves.
أَفَحُكْمَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ يَبْغُونَ ۚ وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ مِنَ اللَّهِ حُكْمًا لِقَوْمٍ يُوقِنُونَ
“Do they desire the laws of ignorance? And who is better than Allah to judge for people of conviction?” [Al-Maaida, 5:50]
