Congratulations! To President Uhuru Kenyatta upon being sworn to office on April 9, 2013.

Despite challenges ahead from domestic and foreign origin, Kenyan leadership commitments on political, economic and social reforms addressing corruption and inequality with fair opportunity to all would guarantee greater national development.

BAHRAIN – Formula One Grand Prix Event Boycott

Bahraini al-Khalifa Kingdom atrocities against oppressed citizens continue with western powers especially United States and Britain other than gulf ally Saudi Arabia provided artillery and resources for suppression.

Bahrain regime hosting United States fifth naval fleet has been abusing power with brutal reaction including physical and mental torture such as electrocution of medical professionals and humanitarian workers attending to unarmed protesters wounded from state sponsored violence.

Moving forward with scheduled Formula One Grand Prix suggest organizers focus on revenue ignoring oppressors killings and unlawful detention of innocent civilians as well as peace activists since 2011 escalating harsh treatment by the hour.

The Formula One Grand Prix entertainment alongside gross human rights violation in Bahrain on international watch is a serious decline of civilization.

In fact, Formula One Grand Prix participants boycotting the event would impact the authority and draw world attention denied to Bahraini citizens struggling for political freedom over decades going back to Britain installed puppet monarchy.

Bahraini authority with Saudi Arabia, United States and Britain aided ammunitions and personnel enhancing violent crackdown of peaceful dissenters is honored rather than denounced in a bizarre gesture when Britain’s Sandhurst Military School considered equivalent to United States West Point military institution was recently named after Bahraini dictatorship Hamad Bin Isa al-Khalifa in appreciation of $3 million donation to the Royal academy.

The western misplaced priorities contribute to enormous human suffering in their domain and around the world with no consideration for life except individual and hegemony interest.

Bahrain political leadership tactics and extreme measures against non-violent demonstrations seeking long overdue changes not barring dynasty abolition conforming to democratic system deserves effective global action demanding the rulers transfer power to the people instead of lethal force against them.

Bahraini citizens sacrifice would not be in vain. The admirable resolve enduring horrific crimes against them do not deter resistance and contrarily al-Khalifa Kingdom along with coalition collapse is imminent.

Global support expediting removal of authoritarianism inflicting injustice in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Tunisia, Turkey… and last but not the least Israel is paramount for peaceful existence and security.

Wishing citizens in Bahrain end to tyranny for republic state with political independence.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
