For the love of power and money the most unreasonably and corruptible President of an African country in the person of Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya betrayed the true spirit of Pan African Nationalism and spat on the grave of his father's, and that of other African freeborns and true African liberators. Thinking that a son of a great Pan Africanist of the great Mau Mau revolutionary in the person of late Jomo Kenyatta will ever dream of betraying a race fighting to breath as his father fought, only keeps one wondering how morally, and ideologically debased African political leaders can be.

It is essential and overly pertinent to note that before we dissect the motivations that made President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya to have betrayed the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB], Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, that we must firstly elucidate on how Kenya got her freedom from the British colonial rule. On December 12, 1963, Kenya led by Jomo Kenyatta and some others declared her independence from Britain. The East African nation is freed from its colonial oppressors, but its struggle for democracy is far from over.

A decade before, in 1952, a rebellion known as the Mau Mau revolution, or what some scholars referred to as the Mau Mau uprising which had shaken the British colony. Not only did the British government spent an estimated £55 million pounds suppressing the uprising but they were never successful to kill the dream of Kenyans becoming free at last, although the British government also carried out massacres of civilians, forced several hundred thousands of Kenyans into concentration camps, and suspended civil liberties in some cities. The war ended in the imprisonment and execution of many of the revolution arrowheads, but the British government also got to understood that things had permanently changed after the wrongful execution. 

The colonial government introduced reforms making it easier for Kenyans to own land and grow coffee, a major cash crop previously reserved for the European invaders who are foreign settlers at the time. Kenyans were allowed to be elected to the Legislative Council beginning in 1957. With Pan Africa nationalist movements sweeping across the continent of Africa and the British government were no longer financially or militarily capable of sustaining its empire, the British government and indigenous representatives from the Kenyan independence movement met in 1960 to negotiate independence. 

For Kenya to be free from the rule of the British invading forces, their people died and watered the ground with their blood. Moreso, the resilient spirit of Jomo Kenyatta destabilised the British rule in Kenya.

It is a matter of fact that Jomo Kenyatta like his South African counter part had sought for refuge in Eastern Nigeria known as Biafra during their struggle for independence and Biafrans gave them 100% support to be free and live like free humans in their ancestral land. Jomo Kenyatta dedicated his son to the struggle for freedom by naming him Uhuru Kenyatta l. 

UHURU means freedom in all spheres of life but we live today to witness that Uhuru Kenyatta turned back on his father's and ancestors idea of a free Africa and right to freedom of indigenous people to which his name was gotten. The betrayal of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by Uhuru Kenyatta does not only violates international law but berates the true spirit of Pan Africa Nationalism which his late father stood for all his life. 

Uhuru Kenyatta forgot so soon that it was the same Eastern region of Nigeria [Biafra], who are fighting today to be free from the British government neo-colonialists and to put a stop to the suffocation of life and right of existence with the tacit support of the Fulani controlled Federal government of Nigeria, we are the same Easterners that also aided and saved his father's land on number of occasions. The problem with contemporary African leaders is not disconnected with the problem of lack of ideology and honour. 

Uhuru kenyatta must understand that he has declared a spiritual and physical wars against the thousands of Kenyans whose blood were spilled for freedom to reign in the African soil. Kenya by right is supposed to be a land of the free, for the free and by the free in Africa and not a land of tormentors, slave merchants, freedom killers like Uhuru Kenyatta. Kenyans must rise up and reclaim their glory being dragged to the mud by the selfish Uhuru Kenyatta who is a candidate of human rights violations in Kenya waiting to appear before the International Criminal Court in Hague.
