Kimunya Vindicated from Grand Regency Scandal
Posted on Monday, November 24, 2008 @ 17:30:48 CST by kwpnews



 Hon Kimunya towering over  from left Hon Khalwale and Hon Okemo

By: The kenya weeklypost News Team 

 Kenyans have once again been duped by political machinations into spending the country’s scarce resources in yet another inquiry that was both unwarranted and a decoy on an attempt to assassinate the character of an Individual. Kimunya's vindication is a direct indictment of the kenyas' Parliamentarians judgement.

An objective assessment of the allegations leveled by parliamentarians and Kimunya’s cabinet colleagues reeked of a much sinister motive than the desire to save the tax payers money. It is even perplexing that some of those in the bandwagon were convicted felons while others have pending litigations in the judicial system.

On the parliamentary front, it appears the onslaught was a culmination of an orchestrated hate and vengeful mission to stop Kimunya’s audacity to tax members of the August house. The litany of charges leveled by Khalwale betrayed any effort on his part to seek the truth about the Grand regency sale. 
Khalwale and Okemo are insincere about their reservations of seeing Kimunya back in the cabinet. First and foremost, the doctrine of separation of power gives equal supremacy to the three branches of government and therefore the legislature cannot dictate what the president does in the executive or appoints into his cabinet.
It is also quite disingenuous for the parliamentarians to reject the implementation of the Waki report and taxation of their salary but yet demand the locking out of kimunya from the cabinet. Parliament should first remove the log in its own eye before seeing the speck in others.
Kimunya’s cabinet accusers either lack the discipline of a cabinet appointment or knowledge of the doctrine of cabinet responsibility.
There are three dimensions to the concept of Cabinet collective responsibility. Decisions of the cabinet are collective, discussions are confidential and Ministers are expected to publicly abide by and defend collective decisions or resign from the cabinet.

When a Minister makes a decision it is on behalf of the government, and if there is any discrepancy emanating from that decision the government is supposed to sort out the hitch and report to parliament instead of playing out their differences in the court of public opinion.
If the politicians were hoping to score political points with donors and bilateral partners, they have definitely missed the boat because the nakedness of our collective leadership has been laid bare in the eyes of all objective spectators of our national spectacle.
Kimunya may have been sacrificed at the political altar, but the smack, will always linger and continue to congest the corridors of our tribal divide
Kenya can only march forward as a democratic nation if the politicians cease to politicize the administration of government, and instead concentrate on entrenching the values of the rule of law and the doctrine of natural justice.
If our pre-occupation is the maintenance of constant tension so as to achieve political power then we are not only destroying the country but worse still killing the hopes and aspirations of over 30 million Kenyans.
In concluding, the media in its capacity as the fourth estate has the responsibility to unearth and educate the public in issues of important public discourse. It is only through such expose can the public discern the truth from the political chaff.
