>Mr Odinga’s hole is the rally of July 7, known by one and all as Saba Saba.
>Mr Odinga’s Saba Saba, however, is not as clearly defined as was Mr Kenneth
>Matiba’s in 1990.
>Mr Matiba masterfully propelled himself to the frontline of Kenya’s
>struggle for plural politics and an end to Kanu’s monopoly of political

The Belgium Government Must Apologise to African Leaders for Their (read Its) Pre-Medieval Primitivity!! Africans Are Neither Sub-Humans Nor Amnesiac Fools!!
· 1) Gambian President Yahya Jammeh has said that under his 19 years of dictatorship The Gambia has built schools, universities and supplied electricity in the provinces. Jammeh was addressing a huge crowd on Monday (March 31, 2014) morning at the Chambers of the National Assembly in Banjul marking the opening of the 2014 Legislative Year.
· He said that in 400 years, the small West African country couldn’t have a high school, adding that the north bank of The River Gambia was in a jungle state and children were not going to school.
· The “furious looking” Gambian leader quizzed: “What is good governance? What is democracy? And what is human rights?”
· He said good governance is to work in the interest of the people and not in the interest of colonialists. “I am proud of being a dictator of development,” he added, stating that Gambians should make a choice between a democracy that dances to the tune of the same people who exploited them and a dictatorship that brings development and equality (Daily Nation, April 3, 2014).
· In 2013, President Jammeh said that he “was tired of neo-colonial arrogance” and announced The Gambia was “pulling out of the neo-colonial outfit called the Commonwealth of Nations”.
· We believe Yahya Jammeh could evolve into a great African if he controlled some of his erratic excesses.
· Why wouldn’t his former Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Fatou B. Bensouda, not resign from the humiliating and enslaving job of Chief Prosecutor of the bogus ICC court; return home to The Gambia; help President Gammeh make things better; and improve the lives and living standards of all Gambians.
· 2) A two-day summit of African and European leaders kicked off in Brussels on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 amidst a row over visas and allegations of selective invitations.
· President Jacob Zuma of South Africa missed the summit and sent a ministerial delegation instead, to protest against the selective invitation extended to African countries by the European Union (EU).
· “I think that time must pass wherein we are looked as subjects, we are told who must come, who must not come, we have not attempted to decide when we meet Europe; who must come and who must not come,” the South African public broadcaster SABC quoted Comrade Zuma as saying.
· “It is wrong and causes this unnecessary unpleasantness. I thought the AU and EU are equal organisations representing two continents but there is not a single one of them who must decide for others,” concluded Comrade Zuma.
· The Chief of Chimurenga, a.k.a. Son of Bona, Comrade Robert Gabriel Mugabe of Zimbabwe led the call for a boycott after First Lady Madam Grace Mugabe was denied a visa, although “his own travel ban to the EU” had been “relaxed” to allow him attend the summit.
· The controversy, however, is wider than the case of Zimbabwe, drawing in the omission of some African leaders, and points to some of the points of tension between the two blocs.
· Son of Bona calls it, “condescending and overbearing attitude by downright idiots.”
· On Wednesday, March 26, 2014, Comrade Mugabe’s spokesman George Charamba criticised the EU for trying to stop the Zimbabwean First Lady from travelling with her husband.
· “It is very strange that the EU has not extended an invitation to the First Lady,” he told State media.
· “What God has put together the EU is trying to separate. Do they expect the President to respect the EU and disrespect his own marriage?” Charamba stated, exuding wisdom.
· Son of Bona is the vice-chairperson of the African Union (AU), which early this year threatened to boycott the summit if the EU did not invite him.
· Charamba also hinted that the EU and AU were at loggerheads over Brussels’ refusal to invite Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic.
· The Chief of Chimurenga is said to be vehemently against the stance arguing (brilliantly) the EU cannot choose who will be in the AU delegation.
· Comrade Robert Mugabe turned 90 recently and is still going strong. He is as sharp and focused as ever. May the Most High God Almighty bless Son of Bona at all times – Amen!!
· We salute Comrade Jacob Zuma, most sincerely, for standing with Son of Bona. God bless you, brother: You and Son of Bona are spot on!
· 3) The People Thursday, April 3, 2014 carried an interesting editorial.
· The editorial read: “The incident on Tuesday where the Belgium Government attempted to deny travelling visa to head of the presidential security team, Edward Mbugua, who is accompanying President Uhuru Kenyatta on official visit to Brussels reminds one that old prejudices, like old habits, die hard.
· Why one country thinks it can dictate composition of security detail of Head of State of another sovereign nation is baffling, if not insulting. The Belgians, can, and must, protect the Kenyan Head of State the best way they know how while he is on their soil. But, certainly, they have no right to dictate on whom to be in the presidential security from this end.
· But where Brussels is concerned, Tuesday’s insolence is to be seen in another dimension that goes a long way back in history.
· Over 120 years ago, European powers of the day met in Berlin, another European capital, and partitioned African continent amongst themselves, an event that heralded the next 70 years of colonial domination of the black continent.
· It is worth noting that at the 1884 Scramble for Africa Berlin Conference that curved African (continent) into zones of occupation by the six European powers of the day – Britain, Germany, France, Belgium, Italy and Portugal – Africans were never consulted or involved in any way. They were just sliced up the way one does with a loaf of bread!
· Belgium leader, King Leopold the second, exhibited the greatest contempt for the African people – he apportioned himself as a personal gift what is today the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)!
· And what do we have today? European powers meeting in Brussels purportedly to deliberate on how to help Africa solve its myriad problems.
· Why, in the first place, should a conference called to deliberate on African problems be held in a European capital? Why not have the summit on African soil which is where the rubber meets the tarmac?
· As if that isn’t patronising enough, why would the EU be the one to decide which African Heads of State to, or not to, attend the so-called summit on Africa?
· It is just as well that some African Heads of State decided to stay away from Brussels to protest the discriminative attitude of the EU. The decision by Heads of State of Rwanda, Uganda, and Ethiopia to stay away if their Kenyan counterpart wouldn’t be in Brussels is also commendable.
· It is time Brussels and the like-minded were forced to acknowledge that this is the 21st Century where Africa must be treated as an equal and respectable partner!” Brilliant stuff! Well done, folks: You are spot on!
· NB: The Belgium Government must apologise to African leaders for their (read its) pre-medieval primitivity.
· Those who believe Africans have a set of eyes in their armpits must be shunned by Africans collectively;
· Those who believe Africans have a set of eyes below their kneecaps must be treated with the contempt they deserve by Africans collectively;
· Because African are not sub-humans or amnesiac fools!
· The satanic racist Western neo-colonial beasts have no shame, good people. They have a repulsive and nauseating hyena mentality. Nothing to add: Enough said! Everything is in black and white.

PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF UGANDA
& CHAIRMAN OF THE NATIONAL RESISTANCE MOVEMENT
Wether its just a mere belief or the reality we cant tell but according to our secret source who is a conspiracy theorist,the Illuminati underworld have been running their agenda in Kenya and he goes ahead to name the artists involved.As you will see in the videos attached to this,it seems interesting.Take your time and be the judge:
I met these various artistes 2 years back. And since then I have been working closely with them in many projects. You can call me the spanner boy who through this whole time, I have been the least and the most send all over to carry out errands. That said, I had no problem with it for I was there only to confirm one thing, are these people ILLUMINATI?
This urge to investigate came after I saw some anomalies in how they were presenting…
