Orengo wants diaspora voting list made public

Posted by Administrator on January 10, 2012

Lands minister James Orengo wants the government to make public the population of eligible kenyan voters living in the diaspora to avert poll rigging. Orengo claimed that focus of rigging has been shifted to the diaspora where stringent election rules are yet to be put up. He called on the government and the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission to make the figure public before the elections.

Speaking at Wire village in Ugenya over the weekend, Orengo said there is a possibility that members of the G7 alliance are planning to rig the diaspora votes in a bid to trounce Prime Minister Raila Odinga. The Ugenya MP urged IEBC to put in place proper mechanisms for the diaspora votes to ensure proper anti-rigging factors are put in place. “It is true that the G7 will not hold and since they are going it individually to the polls as per the indication, they are hell bent on using the diaspora votes to rig out Prime Minister Raila Odinga,” said Orengo.

Kenyans in the diaspora are for the first time expected to vote after the new constitution gave them the privileges. Under the new system, Kenyans in the diaspora will assemble in various government embassies to vote for their candidate of choice. The diaspora voting has been largely criticised as that favouring those who appointed the ambassadors since the ambassadors will act as the returning officer.

What makes the latest declaration even more alarming is the dreadful possibility of a return to the Moi-era electoral practices being applied to voters in the diaspora. “Yes, it is a dreadful situation when you have ambassadors (like Moi-era DCs) serving as returning officers for diaspora voters. What is particularly disconcerting about this is the fact that the ambassadorsare presidential appointees, many of whom are politicians with vested interests,” said Rodgers Orero, a Kenyan living in the UK.

    Bwana Orengo hapo umenena. Ulichokosa kutueleza wazi na kwanini ukayaleta matamshi hayo wakati huu? Na matamshi hayo unayaelekeza kwa nani? Kuna kitu Bw. Orengo anakijua tusichokijua na tusichokifahamu. Na hisi matamshi hayo yanakusudiwa kumlenga Bw Peter Kenneth, lakini kwa upande mwingine, naona anamchimba chimba rakifiye Raila. Hayo ni maoni yangu tu.

    Kama waasisi wa taifa la Kenya, wakiwemo Mzee Kenyatta, Odinga, Koinange, Moi na wengineo ambao kwa miaka na dahari walitumia mbinu chafu za kutafuta ushindi wa mabavu wakati wa uchaguzi, leo sisi tena hatuwezi kukubali kamwe! Kuna viongozi kadhaa ambao wanatumia wanatumia fedha za umma kuja hapa Marekani na kurandaranda huku na huko wakifanya kampeini za kichini chini. Safari wazifanyazo, kama nionavyo mimi ni za kujiandaa huku wakishirikiana na wenzi wao waliowachagua kuwa Mabalozi katika mazingira ya ukabila na mapendeleo. Wakenya wote waishio ng’ambo watakiwa kuchukua hatua zinazostahiki kuhakikisha kwamba kura zote zitakazopigwa ni za halali.

    Kinachonipa kero ni pale nionapo mchanganyiko wa maafisa wa Ubalozi wa Kenya, Washington DC; kule Los Angeles na New York. Nikianza na Balozi wa Kenya mle Washington DC, Bw Elkanah Odembo ni shemeji ya Bw Raila Odinga, yaani amemuoa dadake wa damu wa Raila. Balozi huyu ndiye atakaye kuwa Ofisi Msimamizi Mkuu wa Uchaguzi Marekani Kaskazini. Baadhi ya wale wataong’eng’ania kiti cha urais Kenya ni Bw Raila Odinga. Naona kuna haki hapo. Na haki hio itakayo nifanya mimi kukata tikiti ya ndege kwenda kupiga kura yangu kwa yule nitayempenda. Mmmmmmmm!

    Natimua mbiu sasa hadi Ubalozi mdogo wa Kenya huko Los Angeles katika jimbo la California. Ninapoingia ofisini, ninakaribishwa na mkesha ofisi ambaye ni Binti Rose Ondego Oburu. Mmmm! Oburu….oh… namjua Oburu Odinga, nduguye mkubwa wa Raila Odinga. Naambiwa Rosi ni bintiye Oburu Odinga, au kwa lugha nyepesi, ni mpwawe Raila Odinga. Kisha ananitembeza ofisi na kunitambulisha kwake balozi Dk. Wenwa Akinyi Odinga Oranga. Hhhhhhh! Yeye ni dadake Raila Odinga. Dk Wenwa Oranga ndiye atakayekuwa Afisa Musimamizi wa uchaguzi katika eneo hilo la California, jimbo la Washington, Alaska, Dakota na kwingineko.

    Nachanganya miguu hadi jimbo la New York na kukutana naye Balozi Macharia Kamau na mdogo wake Binti Josphine Ojiambo. Mmmmmm….! Namkumbuka Julia Ojiambo, kitu kama hicho. Ooooh! Hizi ni hila nini? Kumbe Bw Orengo anakijua akijuacho na hatukijui? Mmmmm. Nenda kutwanga dabo dabo zangu. Uchaguzi ulioamuliwa mie simo humo. Shukrani Bw Orengo kwa kunipofua.
