Kenya on the brink of collapse

Postby Nomand » Mon May 17, 2021 5:44 am

2022 will be an interesting year, it will election time in kenya, however this time UHURU tried to change the constitution but the courts refused it.

Kenya's BBI blocked in scathing court verdict for President Kenyatta

The judgement is arguably the most significant ruling by Kenyan courts since President Uhuru Kenyatta's election win was nullified in 2017.

The judges said the constitution amendment bill, popularly referred to as the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), was irregular, illegal and unconstitutional.

President Kenyatta and his political nemesis-turned-ally, Raila Odinga, unveiled the initiative after a truce following the contentious 2017 election, which saw violent clashes around the country.

What did the judges say?

In a four-hour televised ruling, they said President Kenyatta had violated the constitution by initiating a process which ought to have been started by ordinary citizens.

They also ruled that the BBI constitutional committee, a body created by the president, was illegal, adding that Mr Kenyatta had failed the leadership and integrity test.

They warned that the president could be sued in his personal capacity.

What are the BBI proposals?

The initiative proposes the creation of a prime minister post, at least 70 new constituencies, and an affirmative action clause that could create up to 300 new unelected members of parliament.

President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga argue that the proposed constitutional changes will end the winner-take-all structure of Kenyan politics, which is often followed by deadly violence.

But some argue that the current constitution which was promulgated in 2010 was a product of consensus and had served the country well despite relentless attempts by politicians to undermine it.

It was a product of the political crisis after the 2008 post-election violence which killed more than 1,500 people and forced hundreds of thousands from their homes.

What is the political impact?
The ruling is a huge blow to Mr Kenyatta who had staked his legacy on it.

So high were the stakes that MPs were allegedly given $1,000 (£700) bribes, to back it in parliament, a member of the national assembly told the BBC.

In 2017 the supreme courts also nullified UHURU kenyatta's win

UHURU basically wants to create a PM position and give himself that position and remain in power ala vladimir putin style. he also wants to add 300 new MP's to the parliament which are not elected by the people

Kenya has a 2 term limit, the parliament boosted by the 300 new goons hired by UHURU will change the constitution and abolish term limits aka dictator uhuru will be born.

only problem is the courts are against him most of kenya also. if UHURU succeeds then expect a civil war in kenya.

Misery loves company. Xaasid Skinnies have been predicting the total collapse and disintegration of their neighbours Kenya and Ethiopia for years now, yet overall, both countries appear to be getting stronger, stabler and more prosperous, while we, waxuushis that we are, still find ourselves deeper and deeper in a abyss of the most gloomy of prospects.

What rock have you been living under? Ethiopia is about to implode as we speak, OLA is currently about to surround Addis Ababa and Tigray youth are calling for independence.

In Somalia, I don't see any clan wars taking place, a battle with a dozen casualties will be sensationalized with elders quickly placating the situation by making peace, that's how it's been the past 20 years, in contrast to Ethiopia where rape, torture and displacement is occurring day and night, our politics leaves much to be desired but it's like you people languish in self hate and pity.
