Shock as Governor KIVUTHA KIBWANA drags UHURU and RUTO to The Hague again! They may never escape justice this time round

 Thursday May 16, 2019-Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana is contemplating taking the Government and Kenya Pipeline Corporation to the International Court of Justice at The Hague over oil spillage in the county.

Speaking to citizens at Kiboko town in Kibwezi west sub-county, Kibwana revealed that the oil spillage had gone on for more than one and a half years even as spillage continues to affect the lives of the Makueni people since it infects the water resources and that the National Government continuously lay the blame to the county.

"Usifanye shida alafu unaambia county government iwe responsible. Juzi imesemekana hata huko Thange hatukuambiwa hiyo mafuta ilikuwa Kiasi gani (Don't cause trouble and then tell the county that it is responsible. Recently in Thange, we were not told the amount of the oil that spilled)”

"I think sometimes tunadharauliwa na ile serikali kubwa especially (we are despised by the national government) through these parastatals. Hii ni kitu hata tunakusanyika tunasema tunaipeleka korti ya ulaya (We have come together and we shall take this to the international court) because we don't get solutions in Kenyan courts," he told the congregation.

“It has been a problem for one and a half years. Watu wanaanza kufa alafu tukiwazika tunasema ni ukimwi kumbe si ukimwi, ni oil. Na unapata cancer baadaye unakufa na wengine wanasema ni uchawi," he continued (People die and we blame it on diseases like HIV when its oil spillage instead. When you get cancer and die, people blame it on witchcraft)” he added.

He asked President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, to see to it that his people are compensated handsomely for the oil spillage otherwise he will see them in The Hague-based court.
