Eti Kenya is your country?…Kitu Gani Unasema Wewe?
By Mbaria wa Mbaria.
Look at this map. It is the map of a British dominion. Residing here are 45 million souls who call the same geographical entity represented in the map, ‘home. But this is one of the 53 territories that constitute the common wealth of the British people. The outfit is described in the ‘Encyclopaedia Briticannica’ as an association of states -created in 1949- that comprise of the United Kingdom and its former dependencies who acknowledge the British Monarch as the head of their association.
Burma is among the former colonies that rejected becoming part of the British people’s common wealth after independence in 1948 while Uncle Bob (i.e. Robert Mugabe) tendered Zimbabwe’s resignation in 2003. Gambia opted out too from this useless institution . Ireland (which gained independence in the 1920s), the USA and other ex-colonies in the Middle East, declined to become members!
This is how it works…….The British brutalize and kill millions of our parents (e.g. they killed or hanged 12,590 people in Kenya between 1952 and 1956 and authorized the beating to death of unarmed prisoners in Hola!). But they were not done yet. So to continue the imperial legacy (i.e. economic, diplomatic and military influence), they placed into positions of leadership acceptable yes-men and women (i.e. the homeguards) to rule the dominions. They also set up this imperial relic of an institution (i.e. Commonwealth as the expression of imperial hangover, a nuisance and a gigantic farce!) with the purpose of managing our affairs and ensuring that the ‘sun will never set’ in their empire of rape, murder, racism and total destruction of our societies.
But they also maintained a robust effort that keeps us uniformed and misinformed. For instance, they say that the Commonwealth has something to do with upholding democracy and even wanted to appoint a Commissioner for Democracy which was rejected in 2011! They also talk of promotion of human rights and other stuff and ask each member country to endorse. Yaani, fisi anakwambia uokoke na yeye hata akiokoka hawezi acha ulafi! The values common wealth pretends to promote are values the Brits could not uphold when they ruled a significant section of Africa!
Besides this propaganda, the Brits do not even make any financial contribution to the commonwealth worth writing home about. With an annual budget of 45.8 million pounds, the Commonwealth only gets 0.07 % of the total budget the Brits devote to international development (whatever that is!).
What is strange is that millions of the natives in Kenya and other ex-British colonies, protectorates and mandates have no idea that their governments, their armies, police forces etc. were merely set up to keep the natives from interfering with the eating order established by the Brits when they strutted here like….(jijazie rafiki). So far, they have succeeded in controlling the economies of the dominions. In Kenya, the eating order looks like this:
1: British companies (i.e. Diaegio, Safaricom (i.e. Vodafone), Finlays and G4S) are the biggest private companies in the country:
2: British companies form 60% of all oil and gas operators here:
3: The Brits have maintained a foreign investment propaganda since the sham independence in 1963. Whatever they do is always about our interests (i.e. employment opportunities, foreign-exchange earnings, tax revenues from primitive exploiters etc). No word is ever spoken about what they take out from Kenya:
4: Unilever, BAT, Standard Chattered Bank, St Pauls, Tullow Oil ( all from Britain) dominate things here:
5: Britain’s Vodafone Group PLC which has a 40% stake of Safaricom takes to Britain over Ksh19 Billion of the money you use via M-Pesa transactions and when talking on phone!
6; Whenever millions of us take that frothy stuff (i.e. beer that has fish-bladder ingredients) from East African Breweries, we give British firm, Diageo PLC, 53.68% of what we spend on a single beer. As a result, over Ksh4.6 billion is shipped to Britain each year kutoka kwa walevi pekee yao!
7: There are over 100 huge British companies making roaring businesses in Kenya. The biggest include De La Rue, Barclays Bank, Standard Chattered Bank, GlaxoSmithKiline, ACTIS (which owns Garden City Mall along Thika Road), Knight Frank, Unileaver, St Paul’s Property PLC) etc.
8: British companies dominate our tourism sector
9: To hoodwink us, the British have kept alive the ancient propaganda about how “deep-rooted” our links are (yaani, you kill people but still want them to acknowledge how “beneficial” your relationship with them has been!). They also devote lots of cash to fund the Department for International Development (DFID) and charge it with the responsibility of throwing crumbs here and there and making the whole exploitative thing look like a normality;
10: We have about 250,000 British nationals living with us who do one thing or the other to maintain the status quo and over the last 80 years, the British Council has consistently endeavored (very subtly) to replace our indigenous cultures and traditions with the hogwash of a “superior” British culture.
11: On its part, the BBC is a media outfit with lots of spies from MI5, GCHQ (the listening and cyber-security outfit with Headquarters in Cheltenham) and MI6.
Did you know that the BBC has had MI5 agents who vet editorial applicants since late 1930s? Did you know that the BBC has continued to demand that media companies in Kenya and elsewhere must never air/broadcast land issues if they want to have MOUs with them?
12: Do I need to mention the British army training base in Laikipia? How many countries have two armies in the world?
Fellow native, we must know how these people operate in order to get our much-needed total liberation. We must first solve the economic equation in order to solve our political equation. Hii ingine ni siasa tu ya wafungwa!!!
The errant has spoken!
