WaKenya: Friday story.

Energy & medical cartels have merged.

We should neither pay Sh4.9B for the HCIT under the MES deal nor any penalties for termination.

Seven Seas won the contract irregularly. We have the details.

(long thread)

#SwitchOffKPLC
2. Before the HCIT there was the MES deal, which incidentally Seven Seas also "won" a chunk of. How?

Pres Uhuru went to New York for a meeting with then Pres Obama and other African leaders. On the sideline, he obtained the MES document from some corporations.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. Pres Uhuru @StateHouseKenya gave the proposal to then Health CS, Macharia; who gave it to then PS, Dr. Muraguri; serious MAfya House OGs. The proposal was then passed on to a university lecturer. At that time, #EnergyJustice6 James Gitau was in Kenya visiting.

This Christmas you are broke because they stole your money.

WaKenya who trended #SwitchOffKPLC don't know that Rt. Hon. @RailaOdinga urged @MboyaApollo to meet with @ketercharles in 2018 to kill Petitions 6 & 59.

Resulted in a Sh75M handcheque (nego'd down from 300M)

(thread)
2. Before Baba apologists attack me, pls remember that @RailaOdinga was PM during the Coalition Govt & one time Minister of Energy. Although he is not IN govt, he sure as heck knows what's cutting & has remained silent on matters energy while his followers suffer.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. In fact, it was 2017 ODM-Jubilee wars that saw the Apollo receive info from the Treasury about the Sh10.1B that Jubilee took from @KenyaPower for campaigns (common practice) that KPLC illegally recovered from you.

Ati fuel charges.

So: how was Bomas? Do you feel better? Stronger? Can you afford the 20% electricity tariff increase?

Me? I spent the better part of 6hrs at Milimani. Review of Ruling (Pet 59) documents are 🔥🔥

Next mention: 3 March, 2020 (those wheels of Justice. . )

#SwitchOffKPLC
2. I also spent time hunting down the typed court proceedings for Pet 59. You recall 👇🏾



Story after story. . . Nikajam.

We were finally directed to the very efficient Deputy Registrar (@dkmaraga
- pls note).

We now have the notes.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. We can corroborate our recordings of the Pet 59 hearing in April 2019. Mr. Ouma states that the decree (consent orders) listed Gitson as an interested party - meaning that Gitson was party to the consent. How? A joinder hearing never took place.

Wapi decree?

WaKenya are very angry about the proposed 20% hike in electricity tariffs by @kenyapower.

businessdailyafrica.com/news/Kenya-Pow…

Let's go back. You recall how people gloated at #SwitchOffKPLC when @EPRA_Ke reduced tariffs in Nov '18?



It was TEMPORARY.

(thread)
2. This temporary relief expired in July '19. In any case, these tariffs were not graduated & came with crazy restrictions around consumption over a period of 3mths that saw electricity consumers playing mazzematics with their bills! Such confusion.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. So @KenyaPower seized the opportunity to push for higher electricity tariffs but was badly bounced by Pavel Oimeke #OimekeTariffLies @EPRA_Ke

businessdailyafrica.com/news/Regulator…

& also rejected by @ketercharles @EnergyMinK

STORY 1
WaKenya: if your lawyer violates attorney client privilege, say that you've been "ApolloMboya'd".

He was retained & paid by Mr. James Gitau to work on & file a JR application. Said funds were also applied to Petitions 6 & 59 on our behalf.

(thread)

#SwitchOffKPLC
2. Extensive communications incl 30pgs of whatsapp msgs & 100s of emails describe the relationship between attorney & client.

Mboya also introduced Gitau to a Ms. Palmina (Paul Hastings - US Law Firm) admitting to significant assistance from him on Pets 6 & 59.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. The relationship turned a corner when Mboya - using privileged information from his client - started mtng with akina Keter & Oraro. Realizing that he'd hit pay dirt, he began to cut Gitau off by failing to communicate & file the JR.

Remember, he was his lawyer

WaKenya: as others enjoy #HappyBirthdayMrPresident, the community in Laisamis is gearing up for a court battle over the allocation of their 150,000 acres to @LTWPOfficial that were gazetted back in '08 when the birthday boy was Local Government Minister.

(thread)

#SwitchOffKPLC
2. We've told you several time that the @LTWPOfficial heist was executed by the high & mighty from both the Kibaki & Uhuru administrations.



Public funds were used & we even borrowed on Eurobond 2 to pay Sh14 to those vested interests.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. & when Kinyua, the then Finance PS was pushing for @AfDB_Group loans, Uhuru was his Minister.

Now, CJ @dkmaraga has replaced the 3 judges who recused themselves.

WaKenya: corruption in the energy sector often hides in plain sight; often appearing to be above board until you begin to piece together the political and business interests.

The story of Mr. James Gacheru - former MD Jamii Bora Bank 👇🏾

businessdailyafrica.com/markets/market…

#SwitchOffKPLC
2. In Jan 2018, Mr. Gacheru decided to go it alone in the 51MW wind power plant - Kajiado.

By Aug 2019, he had flipped 51% of his Chania Green Energy to a Danish firm & was no longer Chair of Jamii Bora. 👇🏾

businessdailyafrica.com/corporate/comp…

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. And who purchased Jamii Bora? CBA, of course! Enter the Kenyattas. Did they ever leave? CBA has now merged with NIC (where CS Macharia used to be MD) to form NCBA.

WaKenya: I want to thank all of you for your support. It was an afternoon like today, 1yr ago when I learned along with all of you that Apollo Mboya decided to privately settle PUBLIC INTEREST Petition 6.




(thread)

#SwitchOffKPLC
2. WaKenya: @hotshotcreative @eva_m_mutua @KingFredAsira @WanjeriNderu Mr. James Gitau & I decided to solider on.

Apollo (& his friends) mocked us but also genuine confusion from the public as to this "victory".




#SwitchOffKPLC
3. WaKenya: I am sure the confusion has LONG SINCE cleared because nothing has changed in terms of @KenyaPower's fleecing, torturing, injuring & harassing of consumers. Despite Apollo Mboya's famous consent orders.

WaKenya: senior partners who are allegedly leaving a law firm that is in the middle of #SwitchOffKPLC manenos should know that their goose is cooked, no matter how long our it takes for our cases to be successfully prosecuted.

Godfathers won't be in power forever.

(thread)
2. WaKenya: @ketercharles & co. have realized from our further affidavits in July '19 for Petition 6 that paying off Mboya to the tune of Sh75M demonstrates fraud, collusion & concealment of facts that are grounds for dismissing the consent orders of 23 Oct, 2018.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. WaKenya: in fact Mboya - who now mocks & opposes us in court - has become the cartel's weakest link.

Recall a time when with the help of James Gitau, he began to expose the extreme theft @KenyaPower? Wacha akule pesa zake in anxiety. Zitaisha.

WaKenya: are you aware that there is a 300MW plant being set up in Mude, Marsabit County? The documents are allegedly being back dated so as to fit into the cartel-driven list of IPPs in the 2017-2037 LCPDP.

Electricity bills will remain high. Lives destroyed.

#SwitchOffKPLC
2. WaKenya: Petitions 6 & 59 look at OUR immediate demand for affordable electricity. They also dig deep into the network of cartels that control the sector.

There is a direct link between our high bills & the numerous, politically connected IPPs & illegal PPAs.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. WaKenya: we have a govt that has sanctioned the looting of our few shillingis via the energy sector.

With the reshuffling of PSes, note that not a hair on the head of ANYONE in the Ministry of Energy @EnergyMinK has been touched. Keter & Njoroge sit pretty.

2. WaKenya: Meanwhile, the President, Bunge & CJ are yet to respond to our petitions delivered on 25 July.

Deadline: 31 Aug.



Simple courtesy escapes those who feel so high & mighty that they forget that WE are their employers.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. WaKenya: Look at the vigour with which @dci @ODPP_KE chase after HK & Tabitha. Yet Kinoti & Haji are too terrified to tackle the Sh160B theft @KenyaPower.

You've seen that elec prices are going up. Forget all that PR about wind energy. Cartels run the show.

8,300 Kenyans own the same amount of wealth as the rest of us.

Let that sink in.

And these wealthy get tax exemptions, still our taxes, take loans for Kenyans to pay and then steal those too as we pay back the loans.

Let that sink in.
And then using the money they steal from us, they buy and compromise the media and the church, they conduct election campaigns, they pay foreigners to brainwash and polarize with lies, and then they get themselves "elected."

And the game of 8,300 vs 49,991,700 starts again.
So the one thing the 8,300 won't let us talk about is wealth. They fill the public space with noise. Kieleweke, tangatanga, Embrace, referendum, Competency-based curriculum, huduma namba, corruption court cases with no convictions...

Anything so we dont talk about the 0.1%.

WaKenya: This ruling by Justice Makau is a move to roll back our constitutional right to assemble by introducing limitations.

ALL DAMAGES to persons/property that arise due to a demonstration become the liability of the organisers.

#SwitchOffKPLC
2. WaKenya: This [politically motivated] petition from 2016 was a thinly veiled attempt to empower @NPSOfficial_KE @InteriorKE to RESTRICT our freedoms by establishing additional smokescreen criteria for public assemblies to protect rights of those not picketing.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. WaKenya: Innocent enough yes? Until you realise that it is @NPSOfficial_KE @IG_NPS we are referring to.

WaKenya: judging from last week's actions of the energy cartels after we served them, we know that they are very worried. This is why we know that we must insist Mama Ngina takes the stand for cross examination when the time comes. We'll tell you why.

(thread)

#SwitchOffKPLC
2. WaKenya: someone approached Mr. James Gitau to help source funding for two wind firms - Baringo Wind Power (100MW) & Great Rift Valley (150MW). Owned allegedly by Mama Ngina Kenyatta through proxies who have recently received 20yr Power Purchase Agreements.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. WaKenya: these PPAs do NOT exist within the LCPDP (2017-2037). Ditto in Mude. We also want to show how international cartels operate in the energy sector in Kenya where corrupt schemes are executed. This info will be turned over to the FBI in light of threats.

(long thread)

#SwitchOffKPLC
2. WaKenya: during the hearing, Mr. Ouma from Oraro & Co informed the court of the existence of a court order issued on 15 Nov, 2019 that added Gitson as an interested party. Miraculously, also the day that consent was entered into without giving Gitson audience.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. WaKenya: Mr. Ouma indicated that all parties signed the consent orders except Gitson, which was included in the extracted decree. They sought amendment of the orders to remove Gitson. The court declined & they didn't appeal.

Listen to his admission min 27-31.

2. WaKenya: @CarolineMutoko said 👇🏾



If it makes sense for Kenya not to lose a single inch, doesn't the same apply to Somalia? If ordinary Kenyans are saying this, it's likely that ordinary Somalis will also be manipulated. Fighting wars for the cartels.
3. WaKenya: the whole maritime border issue is between big oil companies & those who sold oil blocks in both Kenya & Somalia.

You can be sure that ordinary citizens of Kenya & Somalia will not benefit from the discovery of huge quantities of hydrocarbons in the Indian ocean.

#SwitchOffKPLC
2. WaKenya: there are 2 kinds of domestic consumers.

a) domestic lifeline (less than 100 units/mth = Sh10/unit)
b) domestic ordinary (more than 100 units/mth = Sh15.8/unit)

You MUST average either less or more than 100 units over 3mths to stay in a category.

#SwitchOffKPLC
3. WaKenya: so, if you are "lifeline" (Sh10) & by bad luck you exceed your 100 units - say to 110 units - on 1 of the months but on the other 2mths you were at 99, your 3mth average will be 102.6 units/mth.

You will be automatically moved to "domestic" (Sh15.8)

1. WaKenya: Haji & Kinoti had ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD to engage due dilligence & close loopholes. In fact, on the weekend of Haji's appointment, he was to meet up with his former co-worker, Apollo, for a briefing on the SwitchOff campaign. Still, he blunders?

2. In April '08, under the Coalition Govt, @orengo_james became Lands Minister. Chachu Ganya led an @LTWPOfficial delegation to him. He approved the further subdivision (into 2 titles) of the 150K acres WITHOUT any documentation. He signed a blank piece of paper!
