Wikileaks Kenya Cables Show Odinga’s Plots in 2007 PollsDecember 8 | Posted by David Goldman | Intelligence News
Intelligence News has gathered credible intelligence about the content of the US diplomatic cable son Kenya.
The US was aware of the problems that would come after the 2007 polls include the violence and the lack of goodwill in the Raila odinga camp, yet they were fully behind him.
On the cables, Raila Odinga and his top brass had already made strategic plans to replace key officials in the government including the head of civil service, chief of intelligence, Communications PS, AND Government Spokesman.
Also earmarked for removal from office was Police commissioner Ali who was to be replaced by Edwin Nyasenda and chief of the General staff, Jeremiah Kianga and Internal security Francis Kimemia This explains why President Kibaki extended the Generals term, kept the controversial head of civil service, Francis Muthaura, and retained Government Spokesman Alfred Mutua.
Those who would replace these officials are as follows, Edwin Nyaseda, Salim Lone, Miguna Miguna, Caroli Omondi, Mohamed Isahakhia were key people who would have replaced President Kibaki’s government officials.
Raila Odinga and his top brass had also planned to discredit the Presidents key point men and cronnies in politics such as Moses Wetangula, Mutula Kilonza, and John Michuki.
Wilikleaks paints a gloom picture of Mr Odinga who according to the cables appears to be a US proxy in Kenya, and ready to use opportunities available to change the regime.
Wikileaks reveals how T-72 tanks were ferried to Juba in the disguise of coffee and tea exports.
The tanks were bound for the government of Southern Sudan.
Strategic Intelligence already knows the tanks were first delivered in Kahawa barracks were they were then loaded and distributed to various barracks before being ferried by train to Southern Sudan.
This obviously puts Kenya and Khartoum at loggerheads owing to the fact that Kenya played the core role in the Sudan peace process and that it has massively invested in Southern Sudan.
The details of Mr Odinga’s camp plans to discredit president Kibaki’s men is sketchy in the Wikileaks reports
However, it is official that European diplomats in Kenya are already in possession of these Wikileaks Kenya cables.
