On Wednesday the 10th of May 2006, Tom Cholmondeley, a white racist and serial
killer active in Kenya, shot Mr. Robert Njoya, (a 33 year old Kenyan citizen) to
death for allegedly killing an antelope at his Soysambu Ranch in Gilgil division
of Nakuru District. This brutal execution was the second since last April when
the blood thirsty “white supremacist” Cholmondeley gunned down Mr. Samson ole
Sisina, a Kenya Wildlife Ranger who was on duty and who was wearing full uniform
of Kenya Wild Life Services (KWS).

When the case came to court, Sisina’s family never saw justice after
Cholmondeley was acquitted by the court system “due to lack of evidence”.
Kenya’s Attorney General Mr. Amos Wako, who is one of the most useless and
stupid Attorney General Kenya has ever produced, colluded with Cholmondeley to
dismiss the case. This was despite the availability of both eye witness accounts
to the Sisina execution and other hard evidence that could have facilitated a
conviction. Millions of Kenyans were outraged.

Mr. Cholmondeley, who has occupied one of the biggest chunks of Masai land,
walked to freedom. To put it mildly in this latest murder, it sounds like the
case of a racist grandson of a former colonial land grabber on an execution
mission in Kenya as an elected government plays the role of a spectator because
of external pressure.

KESDEMO takes this opportunity to thank the thousands of Kenyans who came out to
block the Nairobi-Nakuru highway in protest at the latest Cholomendeley
execution of an innocent Kenyan who was trying to survive under great pressure
of hunger and starvation that is affecting more than 3 million Kenyans across
the country.

It is well known that the family which owns Delemare Ranch has been conducting
illegal business of slaughtering thousands of wild animals like buffalos and
reaping millions of Kenyan shillings in game meat profits while at the same time
evading taxation. This is because Kenyan tax authorities, national police force,
military establishment and other key intelligence services have no power to
enter the property of a white, Asian or Arab land grabber in Kenya, majority of
whom are also armed and dangerous to the local population.
The late Mr. Sisina was executed last April as he was in the process of trying
to investigate the illegal trade in game meat that has been going on at the
Delemare farm for decades without state intervention. Since the days of
colonialism, Kenyans in general have been trained to fear white people through
the colonial school system that makes Kenyans and their leaders to prostrate in
front of white men, women and their children.

The cold blooded murder of Mr. Njoya, an innocent Kenyan citizen, by
Cholmondeley, only rivals documented murders by the late colonial and white
racist supremacist called Robert Patrick Shaw who served as a Police reservist
under cover as the boss of Starehe Boys Center where he used to recruit CIDs and
KANU moles during both Kenyatta and Moi dictatorships. During his wild campaigns
of terror, Shaw gunned down hundreds of innocent Kenyans in the name of fighting
crime until he was eventually sprayed with bullets in a conspiracy that was
allegedly masterminded by Daniel arap Moi and the current President Kibaki. As a
cover up, his body was banned from public viewing as the government announced
that he had died of a “heart attack”.

After independence, the Kenyan government never seized land that was stolen by
the British colonialists as per the Political program of the Land and Freedom
Army (Mau Mau). Instead, Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya’s first President who betrayed the
Mau Mau, duped the landless and freedom fighters in a conspiracy where they were
told to buy back their land which was stolen by settlers.

This conspiracy is what caused the mysterious disappearance of freedom fighter
Kungu Karumba who spent nine years in Kapenguria prison together with Kenyatta
and who has never been traced to date. In this dirty conspiracy, Kenyatta signed
a 99 year land lease contract with the British land grabbers whose grandsons are
now executing Kenyans in these same lands with impunity and causing untold grief
to the affected families. Freedom fighter Bildad Kagia died a pauper because of
his opposition to Jomo Kenyatta’s politics of betrayal especially on the thorny
question of land.

When a Kenyan kills another Kenyan, the penalty is normally capital punishment
(death). Former Kenya Air Force liberators like Spt Hezekiah Ochuka, Sgt Oteyo
Okumu, Sgt Obuon and others, were executed in cold blood, not because they
killed anybody in particular but because they tried to overthrow an evil and
brutal regime that was anti-Kenyan people.

These young liberators and their People’s Redemption Council (PRC) within the
military were forced to take action when they discovered that there is “Not Yet
Uhuru” (Not yet freedom) in Kenya. Today we still regret why the 1982 coup
failed because Moi could not have destroyed Kenya for 24 years while Kibaki may
not be President today to continue protecting murderers like Cholomendeley while
at the same time looting and plundering the economy when more than three million
Kenyans are starving. This is the time Kenya is in dire need of liberators like
PRC members who were courageous enough to take up arms to overthrow dictator
Daniel T. arap Moi who denied more than 30 million Kenyans basic rights and
freedoms and who converted Kenya into a one Party dictatorship.

Why should cold blooded murderers like Cholomendeley continue to receive state
protection? KESDEMO asks: Why has the government continued to allow the likes of
Cholmondeleys to continue committing crimes on stolen land without being brought
to face the law? From the point of view of KESDEMO, the Cholmondeles should not
just be hanged for murder but the land they continue to occupy more than four
decades after independence should have been confiscated by the State at
“independence” without compensation. The continued control and manipulation of
the Kenyan government mainly by British and American imperialism under the
Neo-colonial arrangement is what continues to shield murderers like Cholmondeley
from justice.

KESDEMO will not be surprised if Cholmondeley fails to face the noose. This is
because the government will receive orders and threats from British and American
imperialism on how to handle the case. Our perspective is that he will either
bribe his way through a fine or walk away with a light sentence.

In the eyes of the Kenyan law, when Chelmondeley killed Sisoni in April 2005, it
was like he killed a goat. This time it will look like he has killed a black
monkey and when a white man kills a monkey in Kenya, there is no case to answer.
This is because Cholmondeley is a white man protected by the Kenyan colonial law
which is still effective 43 years after “independence”. When a young makanga
(taout) kissed a rich man’s daughter in Kenya, he was jailed for 10 years. But
when Chelmondeley executed a poor Kenyan, he went Scot free. This is the Kenyan
law that divides the rich and the poor and this is how the situation will remain
under capitalism unless the system is overthrown by an organized force.

KESDEMO believes that an end to the menace of the Cholmondele’s type rests on
confiscating and nationalizing land that was grabbed by colonialists and their
lackeys like Criticos (who owns half of Taita Taveta district while the people
of Taita live as squatters), Jomo Kenyatta’s family (and their Gicheha farms
where they own vast natural minerals), the Mwai Kibaki family etc.

The nationalization of land has repeatedly been ignored by three Presidents
since fake Independence namely; Jomo Kenyatta (15 years), Daniel arap Moi (24
years) and now Septuagenarian Mwai Kibaki (3 years). This neglect has caused a
lot of pain to millions of landless Kenyans in every part of Kenya and to every
landless Kenyan in all provinces across the country. These regimes have proved
beyond reasonable doubt that they are anti-landless Kenyans and the only way out
is for the oppressed millions in Kenya to rise against the top class of
capitalist thieves being protected by Mwai Kibaki and his government that serves
both the rich and Imperialist agents in Kenya.

KESDEMO appeals to the landless and oppressed Kenyans in Naivasha to rise
against the Dalamare’s family. Their defiant son has now killed twice and since
he is protected by the law and by Kibaki’s government, he is going to continue
killing the people of Naivasha unless they stop the madness.

The internal security Chief and former Home guard, John Michuki Njoroge, urged
certain Kenyans to sleep and ng’orota (snore) because they are protected. The
reality is that Michuki’s law is designed to protect the “white settlers” and
the stinking rich owners of capital in Kenya. This is the class which can afford
to sleep and ng’orota because evidence shows that ordinary Naivasha residents
are being slaughtered by armed and racist wazungus.
In this latest murder, the people of Naivasha should continue to demand that
justice be done and if the government fails to do so, the people of Naivasha and
other Kenyans should show solidarity and be ready to take the law on their own
hands to push for a redress.

KESDEMO reminds Kenyans about the two British soldiers who were caught red
handed stealing a car and who were locked in Karen Police Station. After covert
intervention by British Imperialism, they were released in yet another case
where justice was miscarried. A British national who traumatized a Kenyan woman
in her private parts with a bottle in Mombasa before the woman died was set free
because of pressure from British imperialism. Chelmondeley will either be set
free or walk away with a very light sentence. For this reason, the people of
Naivasha should be ready to continue with protests because the government must
be accountable. KESDEMO will continue to follow this case keenly and to put it
in its correct perspective.
