U.S. says it’s ‘deeply concerned’ about Kenya’s political environment

NAIROBI – The U.S. government is “deeply concerned” about the political environment in Kenya as police and protesters clashed ahead of its presidential election on Oct. 26, the U.S. State Department said in a statement on Friday.

It said that while the United States did not back any party or candidate, it fully supports the work of an election board, adding: “Unfortunately, in recent weeks actors on all sides have undermined the electoral commission and stoked tensions.”

The main opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) party led by Raila Odinga is holding weekly protests calling for reforms at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

They want the IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba and other commissioners to be sacked for allegedly rigging the August 8 elections in favour of the ruling Jubilee party.

The police dispersed the protests with teargas as hundreds of opposition supporters burn tyres and block roads.

Raila Odinga has warned the police not to attack or stop protesters from exercising their rights.

He vowed that until their demands are met, there will be demonstrations every Monday and Friday, and they will not be ready for the October 26 election re-run.

Commentary, 7 Oct 2017
Let us not kid ourselves.
The Trump Administration of THE USA is only interested in its own affairs. This Administration has no iota of interest of the AFRICAN PEOPLE. But I am quick to add that I admire the United States of America for its resilience to maintain and [let’s be fair] to the struggle to improve the concept of Liberty, Democracy, Equality, Justice, Freedom of Expression for its ENTIRE people.

With that background, the REALITY of the present Government of the USA is to protect and maintain its interest. The interest of the African People is way down at the bottom of the LIST for most past and present presidents of the Untied States of America.

With the above background, let us examine the first two paragraphs of the News Item. For convenience, there they reproduced here:
QUOTE “NAIROBI – The U.S. government is “deeply concerned” about the political environment in Kenya as police and protesters clashed ahead of its presidential election on Oct. 26, the U.S. State Department said in a statement on Friday. It said that while the United States did not back any party or candidate, it fully supports the work of an election board, adding: “Unfortunately, in recent weeks actors on all sides have undermined the electoral commission and stoked tensions.” ”UNQUOTE

There are three essential items in the above quote, deserving comment:
a) “ “deeply concerned” “ : Yes, there is no argument here. The USA is always concerned for its own interest and ‘profit’ It is not secrete policy.
b) “ United States did not back any party or candidate” On the contrary, it always support the candidate that the US believe a better ‘devil’ for its own interest. After all, history testifies that the USA had slept on the same bed with ruthless dictators around the Globe >>> against the interest of the people!!!
c) “it fully supports the work of an election board,” WE rest our case! The protagonist already admitted its ‘lopsidedness’ contrary to the opinion of the Honourable Kenyan Judges.
d) “actors on all sides have undermined the electoral commission and stoked tensions” A perfect unequivocal admittance that USA was not neutral in the affair of an independent African country.
The END OF THE CHARADE.
