Civil Societies REVEAL of plans from UHURU’s office to interfere with TJRC report

Friday, the 21st 0f June 2013 - Several civil society activists today called on the Government to publish the TJRC report saying anymore delays on the matter were a breach of the law.

The activists, Davinder Lamba of Mazingira Institute, Davis Malombe of the Kenya Human Rights Commission and Njonjo Mue of the International Centre for Transitional Justice, said delays in publishing of the TJRC report were violation of the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Act;

“The TJR Act is a law. You have to comply with it, because, it is not merely offering suggestions. The Government Printer has failed to comply with the law,” said Mue.

“We cannot say as a country that we are uncomfortable with the history as has been uncovered by the TJRC report. This report should be implemented to the letter because it is one of the building blocks of a new Kenya,” he added.

The Act requires that the Minister concerned tables the report in parliament within 21 days. This hasn’t been done even though the report was handed in to President Uhuru Kenyatta in May.

The activists today said that they were in possession of information that the commissioners were being blocked from trying to publish the TJRC report by people in the President’s office;

“The commissioners have tried to meet that obligation (to publish the report in the Kenya Gazette) but they have been met with interference from people in the Office of the President, who have asked the Government Printer not to publish the report,” said Malombe KHRC.

Malombe called on the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keriako Tobiko, to direct the police to investigate who is blocking the report from being published;

“We do know that there are people interfering with the publication of the report, we are asking the relevant investigative arm of the Government to investigate the purported interferences and the culpable parties brought to book,” he said.

  1. These ' evil' Societies, give the President and the Deputy space to work, look for somewhere else to direct your negative energy as for me, i dont give a damn about the silly report, given a chance i would tear it into tiny pieces and throw them at u

  2. Who are the civil society ??? Do they know anything else or to dig dirt to paralyse what is being done to foster healing and development ????

  3. THE 1982 ATTEMPTED COUP IS WHAT IS HOLDING THIS..EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE RELEVANT THIS DAYS...WHAT IS SO URGENT ABOUT THIS REPORT NOW? HOW LONG HAS TJRC BEEN "WORKING" ON THIS REPORT AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT HAS BECOME RELEVANT. WHY DON'T YOU GIVE SPACE FOR SOME THINGS TO HAPPEN OR YOU HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO DO? WE AS KENYANS ARE TIRED OF THIS BULL CRAP..YOU TURN THIS WAS SOMEONE IS HOLDING A PRESS CONFERENCE..TURN THE OTHER SIDE ANOTHER ONE IS HOLDING A PRESS CONFERENCE..ENOUGH ALREADY

  4. We elected Uhuru and Ruto to lead this nation forward and not to sit in the office focusing on dung which was heaped before they were born.

  5. Somebody somewhere is trying to distract Uhuruto from serving the Kenyan people. This Government needs to beware of all the distractions no matter what they disguise as.

  6. Yesterdays garbage is not our priority right now there are more pressing needs to be attended to by our leaders.

  7. I would ignore such a biased report.

  8. HOW USEFUL IS THIS REPORT IN CREATING EMPLOYMENT FOR OUR YOUTH, HEALTH CARE, EDUCATION ETC. ??

  9. We need to publish articles that will inspire our people to learn to forgive, reconcile, heal, restore and love one another instead of old tales that have no beginning or end.

  10. Uhuruto have been in office for only 2 months. KHRC and Malombe need to sit down and write their report and publish it at the end of 5 years and ask Uhuruto to account for it.

  11. Some agents are being used to distabilize the current government and they need to be watched carefully.

  12. Report from hell back to sender

  13. I do not care about that report. What is so important about the report? Mr rezzo & D. Prezzo shelve that report and continue with you day to day job of creating economy for Kenyan.

  14. They should know people.!

  15. This report should only be relevant if it was fully inclusive. Where are those who led the 1982 coup? Where are those who called for the 2007/2007b uprising that led to thousand deaths?? Where are those who stole molasses from the people?? How then is this a report when major parts of our past are missing???

  16. The TJRC report is not complete,either deliberately or over-site by Commissioners who did not conduct proper research on atrocities committed between 1963 to date!. The Civil Societies who keep on harping on The Reports late publication, have conveniently decided to push for the publishing of the Report without the inclusion of The 1982 coup incidence among others and the recommendation of fresh investigations with a view to Prosecuting the Main perpetrators and self confessed players like RAO. Just like The Waki Report,RAOs network of undercover operatives,managed to make sure that this dark blot in our History is not mentioned in order to protect RAO,while making sure that matters touching on The late Kenyatta and by extension his son Uhuru are prominently featured,to keep on pilling dirt on him and bring him to disrepute.We know for a fact that these Civil Societies are not serving the interest of Kenyans and are therefore busy serving the interest of their Western Paymasters,whose Agenda in Kenya was and still is Regime change.WHY i ask did Malombe and others who pretend to be so interested in justice not question the exclusion of this very important incident in which Thousands lost their lives,just to protect RAO? Who can trust these Partisan and witch-hunting civil societies?

  17. Hi makende ya davinder na malomba inatakikana ifinywe kabisa.

  18. I wil support the TJRC report ONLY if Railas name is included, then maybe that will be the end of both Kenyatta and Odinga dynasties and we can start with fresh faces in Kenyan politics
