To his credit, Uhuru Kenyatta, by then was the Chairman of the PAC as Leader of the Opposition and took a firm stand on issues relating to transnational crime, and in particular, the Anglo Leasing Scandal, giving the first and initial impression that he might be able to dismantle and destroy the criminal networks, if he ever came to power. Indeed, in order to intimidate, discredit me or prevent me from testifying before the PAC, regarding the Anglo-Leasing Scandal, a questionable committee led by Martha Karua, as the then Minister of Justice & Constitutional Affairs, Gen. Ali, the then Commissioner of Police, Joseph Kamau the Director of CID amongst other, on 14th February 2006, falsely accused me of being a suspect in the Goldenberg Scandal, and took steps to withdraw my firearm certificate, and cancel my passport. A simple act of terror directed at a witness to defeat the course of justice. Uhuru, after the PAC, recorded my testimony, in a letter dated 28th February 2006, addressed to Maj. Gen. Ali, stated as follows:
A lot of water has since passed under the bridge and Mr Kenyatta is the now the President of Kenya with Mr William Ruto as his deputy. Kenyans expected that he would deal effectively with corruption, and drug trafficking amongst other crimes. Sadly not. Corruption fuelled by tribalism is at its highest since independence, well known felons, drug traffickers and money launderers are in public and elected positions, most of them issued with civilian firearm certificates and assigned armed police bodyguards, and it has been become business as usual for the country to create overnight billionaires through fraudulent public procurement, while the economy declines as both the cost of living and unemployment rises. Today every one of us knows of someone suffering from drug abuse.
While cocaine, heroin and other prohibited drugs remain readily available at prices that our children can afford, nothing has been done by the government. This evident by the largest seizure of heroin, worth Ksh 25 billion by the Australian Navy off the shores of Mombasa. Whilst the Kenyan government denied that the drugs were found in Kenya coastal waters, it doesn’t change the fact that Kenya remains a major transit hub for narcotics being shipped to Europe, or explain why the drugs remain in abundant supply in all our cities and town, without any major arrest of the kingpins.
The people of Kenya urgently need a government that will once and for all deal with the well-known drug lords, kingpins, and cartels involved in drug trafficking and other transnational crime regardless of political affiliation. Should we the citizens of Kenya, fail to act now to elect president with the courage and honesty to clean up the country, it will not be long before, wars between cartels break out. Murders and assassinations of public officers, politicians and other players will become common place, to facilitate and complete the state capture by the drug lords, as happened in Columbia.
