POST ELECTION VIOLENCE: WHY IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN BEFORE YOU KNOW IT!!!

User Rating: / 31
PoorBest 
My Point of View

Too much publicity  and attention has been given to the Ocampo Six at the expense of implementation of our new constitution,this attention is advised by the dream that if the Ocampo Six are taken to Hague no Kenyan Politician will dare incite his 'Tribe' or 'followers' against others,a thought that i want us to remove from our heads.

 

 

If we go back down memory lane and assess 2007/2008 it was Only one category of people that had come out to protest against the electoral irregularities: the poorest of the poor, the jobless, and the landless.People who share one class,they are the very ones seen to be committing violence and registering resentment against poll cheating,the ones who died in large numbers,the ones who still were imprisoned even before the Ocampo Six were mentioned.

 

The truth is, the key to stopping clashes during elections lies in our constitution,this constitution promises a new Kenya where the play ground will be level for every player,apparently a few people are aware of this hence the majority are mixed up in political wars that  do not add value to the future of a kenyan citizen.

This illusion  that people have should be eliminated,i believe even the best brains in Kenya that have been awarded the privilege to be part of history makers in foreseeing implementation of our constitution know this fact,they all know that the current political battles are only aimed at derailing the implementation of the new constitution by the very forces who were against it,Reason; this new laws will break the status  quo ,it will end if not reduce impunity,it will reclaim lost government property and integrity,it will give back to Kenyans what belongs to them.

 

Hague or no Hague Kenya will still burn down come the next election dispute albeit in a more discreet organization,if we don't wake up from our slumber now,Ocampo will not come to stop people A from chasing out people B from their land if opportunity arrives (here opportunity is brought by political instability)

If you are a keen analyst you will accept that in the last elections,protests degenerated into organized ethnic violence in, the root-cause of the post election violence lies elsewhere,Historic injustices coupled with unequatable distribution of resources and triggered by a disputed poll was the cause of the violence.To be precise,saying that the post election violence was tribal will be missing the point because access to land, housing, and water are the real issues that underlie here in the guise of ethnicity,these are mostly triggered by political disputes (in this case a bungled presidential election).

 

So be it Hague or no Hague,if these fundamental issues are not addressed we shall always have clashes in Kenya.It is highest time we looked for a mechanism to correct this,despite being a very enormous task we must all be ready to let go and appreciate what is entitled to a people can never be taken from them for long.

 

I urge our leaders to expedite  implementation of the constitution.

 

I repeat Kenya's Post election violence was not a tribal war.

 

I rest my case.

STOP FORCED EVICTIONS IN AFRICA

User Rating: / 12
PoorBest 
My Point of View

Across Africa hundreds of thousands of people each year are left homeless when they
are forcibly evicted from their homes by the authorities. In most cases evictions are
conducted without any due process, consultation, adequate notice or compensation.
The effect of forced evictions can be catastrophic, particularly for people who are
already living in poverty. Forced evictions result not only in people losing their homes
(which they may have built themselves) and personal possessions, but also their social
networks. After forced evictions, people may no longer be able to access clean water,
food, sanitation, work, health and education. Officials carrying out the evictions often
use excessive force against residents, and sometimes firearms.
Over the years Amnesty International has documented cases of mass forced evictions
in Angola, Chad, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Sudan, Swaziland and
Zimbabwe. Governments across Africa have acted in violation of regional and international
law, including the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights.
Years after being forcibly evicted, millions of people remain homeless and destitute,
and many have been driven deeper into poverty. They have neither been rehoused nor
compensated for their losses and most do not have access to justice and effective
remedies. Those responsible for these human rights violations have not been brought
to account.
The photos displayed here illustrate the effects of mass forced evictions in Angola,
Equatorial, Guinea, Kenya, Nigeria and Zimbabwe. Human rights activists in these
countries have stood up, often in the face of violent government repression, to demand
their right to adequate housing and to call on their governments to end forced evictions.
Too often their calls have fallen on deaf ears.
While these photos depict the destruction, the destitution and the suffering that resulted
from the forced evictions, hope is found in the brave and motivated people from the
affected communities determined to continue the struggle for their human rights.


WHAT ARE FORCED EVICTIONS?

A forced eviction is the removal of people against their will from the homes or land they
occupy without legal protections and other safeguards.
Evictions may be carried out only as a last resort, once all other feasible alternatives
have been explored and only after appropriate procedural and legal safeguards are in
place. These include genuine consultation with the affected people, prior adequate
and reasonable notice, adequate alternative housing and compensation for all losses,
safeguards on how evictions are carried out, and access to legal remedies and
procedures, including access to legal aid where necessary. Governments are also
required to ensure no one is rendered homeless or vulnerable to other human rights
violations as a consequence of an eviction.
Not every eviction that is carried out by force constitutes a forced eviction – if
appropriate safeguards are followed, a lawful eviction that involves the use of force does
not violate the prohibition on forced evictions.


ANGOLA:

More than 10,000 families in Luanda, the Angolan capital, have been made homeless
after being forcibly evicted from their homes since July 2001. These evictions have
been carried out by police officers, soldiers, municipal officials and private security
guards, often using excessive force and firearms. Police have on some occasions also
arrested and briefly detained those resisting the evictions and members of the local
housing rights organization, SOS-Habitat, who were trying to persuade the authorities
to stop the forced evictions.
Few families have been compensated for their losses. Some were rehoused about 30
to 40 kilometres from the city in areas lacking jobs, schools, hospitals, basic services
and sanitation. However, the vast majority have been left to fend for themselves. Many
have been the victims of repeated forced evictions and hundreds of families remain
without shelter, living in the ruins of their former homes.
The end of the 27-year-long civil war in 2002 brought new opportunities for
development and reconstruction which increased pressure on urban land. Although
there have been fewer forced evictions since 2006, they continue to be reported, most
recently in the Iraque and Bagdad neighbourhoods of Luanda where several thousand
people may have been left homeless following forced evictions in July 2009. Most of

My Promise

My promise to the Youths of the Facebook Nation of Kenya and the world

My Point of View

I wish to thank all Youths on FB for their continued support towards this great idea of forming a Shadow Government that will help articulate issues affecting youths in Kenya, I also wish to thank all of you for the good will that you had in me and nominated me to serve you as president, I know that your trust won't go unrewarded by God.

 

Ours is just but a beginning of a journey. Many out there might write us off as 'just any other fun loving youths' but some will see what we are trying to do, some will appreciate the fact that Youths can carry the aspirations of a nation in their hearts. And thats why we are all important in this respect as we pioneer this great force.

 

A time is coming when the leaders will ask us to help them do what we did in our beginning, a time is coming when the Government Of Kenya will have to listen to our Government of Facebook Kenya if it will want to run, a time is coming dear sisters and brothers when due to our unity and focus we shall be an asset for the government to run smoothly.

I am not going to tell you what i will do for you in my presidency, because I believe power lies in the people. I have grown to appreciate our heritage and for the years i have lived tirelessly struggling to change my society i have discovered that Kenyans are able, be it youth, the aged and even our kids, we are very much able, but we lack a unity of purpose, that is why today i honestly state that i will only do one thing for you, I will try to the level of my best to unite us all as youths of this Nation. Because it is only after unity has been realized that we will be able to stand up and say now we want to take leadership, it is only when unity has been achieved that we can seat back and say we want to change our society.

I know today I was supposed to say how my leadership will be, but as I have said I will not do this alone, that’s why I am proudly telling you what we will do as a youth of Kenya collectively, this will not be the president doing but the whole nation of Government of Facebook Kenya, because we will have realized unity of purpose.

 

Together we are going to make people to listen to the voice of the youth.

Together we are going to demand for our rights.

Together we are going to put these government leaders on toes.

Together we are going to demand for better services.

Together we are going to ask for value in education

Together we are going to make sure that Kazi kwa vijana benefits vijana

Together we are going to come up with development ideas to start development projects for youths.

Together we are going to support institutions and organizations led by youths.

Together we are going to demand for basic health for everybody.

Together we are going to break the tribal lines perpetuated by our politicians.

Together we are going to turn the ticking of the clock of corruption by encouraging and nurturing accountable leadership.

Together we are going to change the perception the society has towards the youth as being unreliable.

 

My dear brothers and sisters, all this is possible only if we are to unite and set aside our differences, this will only work if we take serious this idea that we have all brought up, this will work if we learn to appreciate the spirit of Volunteerism, I believe the time has come, together we are going to change Kenya, and this change is going to be for the better.

 

There is a voice calling out there, it is calling for us Kenyan Youths to stand and be counted, it's calling for us to go to battle, friends, lets pick up all the weapons we have, lets take the spears and the shield that is our defender,lets all empty our arsenal and go out there and use our various talents to win this war, because after this we shall be remembered as having been in that group of visionary youths who saved Kenya.

 

We have started on a very good footing, we have already made three steps of our 1000miles,we are coming from near and where we are headed is far and uncertain, together we can reach there, I know We Can.

 

Last but not least, I announced before during my nomination pledge that I will at all costs avail government information intended for youth and society to the members of my government, this I will do by regularly making inquiries in various government ministries to find out what programmes are there for youths and how youths can benefit, this will also make the Government know that Government of FB Kenya is a serious group of youths.

 

With this brothers and sisters, I wish to accept your nomination for presidency of the Government Of Facebook Kenya, with this friends, I wish to seek your Vote in the final poll.

 

Gob Bless you. God Bless Kenya.

There is a presidential nomination taking place today,the deadline is today,please read my pledge to the Youths of Kenya on facebook,after it is a link that will take you to the nomination platform please comment on the nomination note that 'I VOTE FOR DUNCAN MIKAE.THANK YOU.


As i join hands here with you friends to push the youth agenda,i want to believe that we can nurture leadership amongst ourselves,we can all sacrifice for the sake of Kenya,I want to encourage all of us to think of the best way the Youth A...genda can be pushed forward.
My motivation has always been a young man who defied odds,he used his wisdom to challenge status quo,
"One day, an old man was walking along the shore when he came upon a young man reaching down to the sand, picking up starfish, and throwing them into the ocean. "Why are you doing this?", he asked. The young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them back in, they'll die."

The old man replied, "Do you not realize there are miles and miles of beach, and starfish along every mile? You cannot possibly make a difference!" At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "I made a difference for that one."

we can change kenya,starting from individual initiatives,lets all come together,with our energies ,we need to get everyone involved.We need to start thinking about that suffering Kenyan,how we are to help him/her.
we can move masses,LET'S DO IT.

I won’t make the many promises that people may make here because they are always empty I only want to make one promise here today;that me together with my government will try at all costs to make our citizen of FB get all government information that is of primary importance to the youth of this nation.

With this brothers and sisters I declare my intention to serve you as your president.
Thank you.
God Bless Kenya.
