Anti-ICC Kenyan President and his government appear to be the target of US-bolstered Al Qaeda attack.
What are the chances that family members of Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta just so happened to be visiting Nairobi’s Westgate Mall in the midst of an unprecedented cross-border attack by Al Qaeda Al Shabaab terrorists – and that these family members were successfully singled out and murdered? The BBC reported in its article, “Nairobi Westgate attack: The victims,” that:
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s nephew Mbugua Mwangi and his fiancee Rosemary Wahito are among the many Kenyans killed in the attack on the Westgate shopping centre.
What are the chances that Al Qaeda is armed and funded by the US from Afghanistan in the 1980’s, to Libya in 2011, and now Syria to undermine enemies of Wall Street and London, but not in Somalia to undermine neighboring Kenya whose new president won partly due to a popular backlash against the West’s discredited International Criminal Court (ICC)?
Indeed, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta was charged by the ICC for “crimes against humanity” even as he ran for president. The Kenyan newspaper, the Standard, published “Is history repeating itself as Uhuru Kenyatta, like father, faces trial?,” where current President Kenyatta’s persecution by the ICC is seen as a parallel to the persecution of his father, Jomo Kenyatta, by British colonial rule. It stated:
In April 2011, Ngengi Muigai, a close relative of Uhuru drew parallels between his charges at the ICC and the trial, jailing and unlawful detention of his father by the British colonial government.
How much can a wife and a mother bear? Her husband’s tribulations from the British colonialists and now her son from the neo-colonialists said Ngengi.
Mama Ngina had said at the same venue: I’m sure Uhuru, Ruto and the rest will go to The Hague and come back so that we can proceed with nation building.
She said this on the day she laid hands on both her son and Ruto as she prayed for their safe return from The Hague.
She said the charges facing her son and his co-suspects were the work of neo-colonialists and urged Kenyans to stand by Uhuru and resist just like they had resisted the British colonial rule.
The colonialists gave us problems and it is now clear they have never relented, said the former First Lady.
The former first lady is not alone in viewing the ICC as the modern day successor of old European subjugation and colonization. President Kenyatta’s persecution by the ICC is a tell-tale sign that he has made enemies in the West. The ICC itself is a discredited institution openly collaborating alongside NATO and in particular, the US, UK, and France to target political enemies around the world.
This would be made abundantly clear in Libya in 2011, where the ICC played a crucial role in NATO’s propaganda campaign against Tripoli when ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo “confirmed” that Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi’s son Saif Al-Islam was “captured” by Libyan militants and en route to the Hague. Saif Al-Islam would turn up the next day, very much free and still leading the defense of Tripoli – meaning the ICC lied as part of a wider NATO psychological operation to portray Libya’s capital as overwhelmed and captured.
