A source within the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has revealed that as part of the institution’s system security IEBC created multiple system accounts in anticipation that there would be attempts to hack their servers during this year’s elections.
According to our source who did not want be named IEBC did not want a repeat of what happened in 2013 where the software program they were using was interfered with such that spoilt votes were multiplying.
A decision was then made to establish multiple dummy accounts on different servers a few weeks to the elections date. It is believed some passwords of the dummy accounts were then leaked intentionally by the IEBC.
On the night of 10th August 2017, two days after the general elections were held, hackers managed to access one of the systems from a location in Tanzania. However the hackers did not know that what they had accessed was a dummy account. Another attempt was also made from a house situated in Runda, but this one failed.
When we tried to pin down our source to confirm who these hackers were and what political side they supported all we were told was to use our brains. ‘Jubilee was leading. Why would they try to interfere with an election they are winning?’ We were asked.
We were also told that the hacking efforts stopped immediately some IT specialists brought in to the country by Salim Lone, NASA’s Head of Presidential Communication, were deported. These specialists were arrested from a tallying centre set up in one of Jimi Wanjigi’s properties.
Mr Wanjigi was NASA’s primary financier.It is quite interesting that NASA did not make any presentations at the Supreme Court about any hacking of the IEBC system, despite the fact that Raila Odinga called a late-night press conference on 10th August 2017 where he claimed that NASA had evidence that IEBC had been hacked. Raila even provided an IT expert to explain what had happened.
So, did NASA fall for the IEBC’s security system maneuvers?
NASA Principal Raila Odinga was to address the media on Tuesday 15th August where he was to give his supporters direction on the way forward after Uhuru Kenyatta was declared President. But this was never to be. A communication was released postponing the press conference to Wednesday. However we can now reveal all is not well within the coalition.
Isaac Rutto, Moses Wetangula and Kalonzo Musyoka are putting pressure on Raila to concede defeat, as this will leave them the time and space to prepare for the 2022 general elections. The three former co-Principals feel Raila is fighting a desperate and terminal losing battle which they are not ready to be part of.
On the other hand controversial businessman and financier Jimmy Wanjigi who is the force behind Musalia Mudavadi and the brains that put together NASA, has teamed up with Musalia and they are insisting that Raila must dig in and call for mass action up until Uhuru agrees to negotiate partial government sharing.
Jimi is demanding that Raila makes it clear to Uhuru that he must get ‘something’ from Uhuru’s government, or cause chaos.
However the reality is that Jimi intends that whatever government positions Raila gets from Uhuru become platforms for him to get access to government business are as a means of paying back the billions Jimi is owed by the NASA leadership.
Raila Odinga knows his illustrious political career has come to an end after this last loss but what he does not know is how to exit; as a political statesman, or as a political broker.
If the press conference finally happens tomorrow, we will know.
Raila knows he can’t be president after the thrashing he has received at the ballot – whether through an appeal or any other imagination. The question then is; why is Raila being adamant against conceding he has lost? Well; it is all about RAW POLITICS.
Raila is not sad that Luos are being killed in Kisumu, Kondele or Mathare. According to Raw Politics Raila actually sees this as positive; these deaths are bargaining chips! This is why Raila is quite happy to exaggerate the numbers. It is all about gaining sympathy votes. The deaths of especially women and children add even more value to this agenda.
The ultimate objective of all these can only be understood in the context of investment opportunities. To Raila politics is about making money.
Over the years Raila has turned his politics into investment opportunities – for himself and for others like the great political broker Jimi Wanjigi.
He is also able to attract investments from people like George Soros as well as political brokers from Germany and France.
Raila made his personal money during ODM nominations after selling nominations to people like Joho, Kidero and a host of other governors for billions a pop.
However his investors – people like Jimi, Soros and others – expected him to either win; or at the very least cause enough disruption in Kenya that Uhuru would be forced to negotiate with him for peace. Getting here is a 2-step process; (1) cause chaos and play victim to develop bargaining chips. (2) Negotiate for posts in governance.
Now Raila is stuck. The routing he got at the ballot means he has not be able to achieve the first step effectively; and every day since the announcement of Uhuru’s won makes it even harder to do.
However Jimi Wanjigi & Co are busy demanding for their pound of flesh. They want him to get the power to nominate their preferred heads of select parastatals, government bodies like KEMRI, and ministries. Failure to which they will expose their agreements with Raila which will destroy his local and international standing.
Raila is at a cross-roads. He knows he cannot deliver on his promise of causing chaos to negotiate, but he is scared of displeasing his investors.
What would you advise him to do?
Martha Wangari Karua star is fading at an alarming rate in her quest to be the next governor for Kirinyaga county.
Karua who has been a fierce critic of the Jubilee government until earlier this year when she joined Uhuruto team has lost ground and it remains to be seen if she has what it takes to mount any serious challenge in these eight days left to campaign.
She is still seen by many as a mole who can’t be trusted. Her relationship with the opposition coalition complicates matters for her. Karua will be remembered as one of the leaders who gave Uhuru Kenyatta a hectic time in his reign. She has been on the forefront opposing government’s projects and even one time referred to president Uhuru as thief who is not fit to lead the country.
Over the past few months, Karua has hired and fired three firms to manage her brand. At the moment she is being managed by sinclair international the company also managing Raila and Hassan Joho.
With time running out, Karua faces a battle of her lifetime in her quest to clinch the seat.
Any time I talk to American Investor Calvin Burgess of Dominion Farms, some deep anger rises in me. What would blind a people that much to the extent that they fail to see that a rogue politician is leading them to deep poverty!Dominion Farms had no major issues with the old man until Calvin decided to start major outreach activities.
First, he brought a fellow Investor who was ready to start small holder farming of vegetables that would be exported to the US directly. The day the investor, who was willing to invest at least 3 billion in Alego, Bondo, Budalangi and Ugenya arrived in Siaya- a group hired from Kisumu came and started throwing stones at the American investor. He was shocked, and has never come back to Kenya.
Second, when Dominion started the Sugar Cane Outgrower project, that would see farmers grow the latest Sugarcane Variety in Alego, Bondo, Budalangi and Ugenya things went from bad to worse.
The Variety from Brazil takes only 8 months to mature and gives harvests of minimum 60 tonnes per acre. A five acre harvest would give Farmers at least 1.2 million shillings per year, after costs.
Dominion had planned to contract 3,000 farmers to take up the new variety of Sugarcane after doing a two year trial. That would have seen annual injection of sh 3 billion in the local economy.
But for some strange reason, Raila did not want that project to kick off. He sponsored several Court Cases against the Project.
He used his stooge at Siaya County Gov Rasanga to terrorize the investor. Goons were sent to stone any public awareness campaigns to enlist farmers into the Cane growing Project. He used local Politicians (Who would do anything to please their god) to organize all kinds of Demos.
After Calvin got frustrated, he asked Tinga what he wanted and Tinga openly asked for sh 200 million “In order to calm his boys”!
Calvin made these allegations in a Public International Conference. If Raila was Man enough, he would have gone to Court, especially Justice Odunga to sue Calvin, he has not done that to date.
Of Course, Calvin told him to go sit on a pin. He went back to the US, and will be back after Raila is thumped on August 8th. He wanted to leave Kenya for good, but after several high level analyses he decided to stay on after crunching the figures and trends to discover that there was nowhere Raila was going.
Clearly, Raila does not want the 3 billion to circulate in his backyard. He doesn’t want the local farmers to have access to the American market.
So surely, what would make anyone call Raila a “Liberator”?
Why would anyone call Raila an “Anti Corruption Crusader”?
Why would anyone call Raila a democrat? Seriously why?
Nyeri Town Mp Esther Murugi was forced to cut short her speech at Witemere slums in Nyeri on Tuesday evening as she attempted to introduce Timothy Njama, an indepedent MP aspirant, to Nyeri resident.
Timothy Njama, a young man, just came back to Kenya a few months ago after spending many years in America. Hon Murugi was trying to explain that Mr Njama is best placed to take over from her, after her 9 years in office.
However the residents of Witemere could hear non of it and told Hon Murugi to her face that she lost the Jubilee nominations fairly to Ngunjiri Wambugu & she is now obligated to support the Jubilee candidate, unless she is telling them she no longer believes in Uhuru Kenyatta.
Murugi, who got 11,000 votes to Ngunjiri’s 17,000 has been under immense pressure to support Jubilee but apparently she’s still very bitter that she lost what was assumed to be an easy win for her. She has now taken it upon herself to ensure that Ngunjiri does not win, and has told her supporters that the MP seat should go to anyone else but Ngunjiri.
Preliminary investigations into the collapse of the Ksh300m Sigiri Bridge indicate that steel bars supporting the structure were deliberately cut on the night of June 25, 2017 to weaken the structure which collapsed the next morning.
Residents also reported hearing heavy machinery at the sight at night and later a small explosion normally associated with quarrying. On trying to access the site they were repulsed by unknown people.
The fact that it happened a few hours after Raila and his team were heckled by residents is a clear sign of foul play.
China Oversees Engineering Company (COVEC) which was awarded the contract has decades of experience in construction and has done major projects across 4 continents. They also constructed the Kisumu International Airport so they are not shoddy/cowboy contractors like Raila said in his statement yesterday.
How can a leader who wants to be President deliberately order the demolition of a structure such as a bridge that serves Kenyans just because he is jealous? Why could he not build it when he was Prime Minister?
I’m a bitter Luhya. I can’t imagine Raila Odinga, our so called Joshua, conspired with the corrupt Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero to impoverish us, a clear plan to sabotage Luhya’s economy.
It is believed that in 2003, Raila in conjunction with Agriculture Minister Kipruto arap Kirwa and Kenya Sugar Board CEO Andrew Oloo Otieno plotted to have Evans Kidero as the Mumias Sugar CEO and at the helm of power, Kidero did as scripted.
First; Kidero crashed Mumias Sugar farmers’ union, MOCO, and the sacco, MOSACCO in bid to strangle farmers’ voice. Next, he sold off farmers’ shares to brokers then; he deliberately increased the cost of input which was solely supplied by the company to contracted farmers. Contracted farmers are those who receive all the farm inputs and services on credit from the miller, with the cost and interest recovered upon.
After doing that Kidero had accomplished his scripted mission, because in the long run the farmers could not afford inputs and they were on endless losses so their only way out was to quit farming.
Just like the fable story of a live helpless chicken being plucked off feathers by its cruel master and then lured with some maize seeds by the same person; to fool it, to create dependence on it. That’s how Raila, through his stooge Kidero, did to us.
Sabotage our economy, our likelihood, so that we could always be desperate and depend on him. How foolish were we? Now we hear Kidero is financing Raila’s campaigns in tune of billions. Isn’t that not our parent’s sweat, our poor farmers’ money, the cost and price of our poverty? Now I know truly #VinduVichenganga.
Dear Raila Odinga,
Receive greetings from your Ex, the mother of your child, Mama SGR. I’m happy to inform you that the baby was delivered successfully and he is suckling well.
Now that you have publicly agreed that the pregnancy was yours, allow me to make some issues clear. One, I was shocked when you told me to abort, claiming that bringing Baby SGR to term would be an unnecessary burden to us. I thank God He gave me wisdom that I refused to heed your evil advice.
When baby SGR was delivered, you saw his photos on social media and claimed that the baby had an ugly face, and so he couldn’t be yours. Know this Raila; God does not eat ‘waru’, He makes sure that children sired by deadbeat fathers resemble them 100 percent. That ugly face is YOURS!
Later on, as Baby SGR became famous and is finally a celebrity in East Africa, i hear you have now started claiming that he is your child I shed tears as I recall how you bragged among your friends how “ulinidunga mimba alafu ukaniacha”. May I inform you that, when you decided to become a deadbeat baba, I did not “chapa” the way you expected me to.
For your information I’m dating Uhuru Kenyatta and we are renewing our vows on 8th August 2017.
I also heard you were in Mombasa recently campaigning and you didn’t even bother calling, leave alone visiting to see baby SGR. What are you ashamed of, being called a Deadbeat father, huh?
Anyway Let me tell you something, last evening I showed baby SGR your photo unfortunately it didn’t go well as i expected the toddler cried so loudly saying “mama, mama, sitaki baba bandia “.
Yours Never more,
