LSK lists leaders it wants barred

Lawyers want the electoral commission to bar leaders implicated in scandals from the March 4 General Election.

The LSK made the appeal on Wednesday as it released a report on prominent individuals it says are unfit to hold public office as they have been adversely mentioned in parliamentary and other reports. The report, titled Realising Integrity Law; Walking The Talk, says those named were allegedly involved in human rights violations, corruption and other economic crimes, obstruction of justice and other vices.

They include a presidential aspirant, a running mate to a presidential aspirant, permanent secretaries, MPs, provincial administrators, top police and military officers, lawyers, diplomats, Cabinet ministers and tycoons.

The list was compiled from reports by commissions set up to investigate human rights violations and corruption. They include the Akiwumi report on land clashes and the Ndung’u report on land acquisition. Others are the Kiliku report on ethnic clashes, parliamentary reports on the murder of Dr Robert Ouko, the Goldenberg Affair, decline of the Kenya shilling, as well as the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights report on the 2008 post-election violence.

Felicien Kabuga just had to be in there. He will have to seek clearance on the maize scandal. Otherwise he cannot pass the chapter six muster.
William Ruto allegedly flouted the Public Officer Ethics Act (POEA) by disregarding its provisions, in particular, Sections 12(4)C, 12(4)D, 17 and 19 and related regulations in the discharge of his duties. In one particular instance, he is alleged to have supported a company he was associated with to receive a contract to supply the NCPB with gunny bags (AMACO).

It was recommended that the mentioned individual face the full force of the law. On the 29th of April 2009 the Attorney General recommended to the KACC to close the files. No evidence was found linking the Prime Minister (Raila Odinga) to the scam. Price Waterhouse Coopers in their report recommended that the Minister William Ruto) pave way for investigation. He was suspended by the Prime Minister. It was also recommended that the National Cereals and Produce Board’s mandate be reformed and spared from the commercial functions that make it prone to political interests. The NCPB Act should be amended to reduce the President’s and Minister’s excessive and discretionary powers over the board appointments.

Kaa Ngumu was not spared either. KANU era-style stealing.

Kombo report alleges that they were involved in fraudulent invoicing for services already paid for

Mumias Sugar Co., KSh 28 million

Committee recommended that then KACA investigate with a view to prosecute and lost monies recovered.

Can Raila escape?
Office of the Prime Minister and the line Ministries who took part.
...
Hon. Franklin Bett, Minister for Roads
Hon Charity Ngilu, Minister for Water and Irrigation
Hon. Noah Wekesa, Minister for Forestry and Wildlife Functions
Hon. John Michuki, Minister for Environment and Natural Resources
Hon. Musalia Mudavadi, Minister for Local Government

A total of KSh 33,061,925 has been embezzled according to the interim audit report.

Each of the named ministers were allegedly said to have received KSh 1 million from the project which cannot properly be accounted for.

Poor internal control procedures in the Office of the Prime Minister gave an opportunity for the officers to embezzle funds. An overhaul of the system is therefore required to change the face of the project and request for further funding. The Prime Minister acknowledged the failures of not involving the line Ministries and the weak internal control within his office.

Parliament urged the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister to take political responsibility for failure to closely monitor the activities in the project.

Doesn't hold any water. It is just an opinion until this people are sued and found guilty...unless they and their bosses will just take political responsibility and quit like Gumo.

The LSK has done a great public services and it signifies progress. There were times when a report like that could not be published anywhere in Kenya and would have been considered sedicious literature.

The Supreme Court in its interpretation will draw the line somewhere. The line, however, will be below those charged of crimes against humanity, whose charges have been confirmed with trials scheduled to begin soon.

Busybody report going nowhere. Eti 10,000 members when the current office was elected by just 400 lawyers? LSK is just a wannabe elitist lawyer's club of idlers and though entitled to its opinion, it is not a constitutional body whose opinion bears any authority leave alone clout, and IEBC is not obligated to listen to their snivelling wolf howls, no matter how loud.

You are THE pathological hater, not me. Before you point at the spec in my eye, first remove the log in yours!

Impunity unabated:

Immigration Minister Otieno Kajwang, Transport Minister Amos Kimunya, Jakoyo Midiwo and Shakir Shabil were among candidates cleared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Dispute team to vie for their respective seats.

During party primaries, dispute arose in Homa Bay County when Mr Kajwang, a senate hopeful, was accused of being behind voting materials marked in his favour and dropped at Rodi Kopany and Kodiera markets in Ndhiwa.

But Mr Kajwang’ distanced himself from the claims, saying his opponents were determined to ensure that the nomination process does not go through.

On the other hand, Mr Midiwo was granted direct nomination by his ODM party, thus, causing the dispute.

However, the IEBC Dispute team ruled that Mr Midiwo was handed the nomination certificate legally.

Mr Kimunya's rivals Lawyer Samuel Gichigi and former area MP Mwangi Githiomi had appealed to IEBC accusing him of electoral malpractices.
