Cuba  honoured Kenya’s founding father Thursday as a towering figure in African and Caribbean liberation movement.

A bust of founding President Mzee Jomo Kenyatta was unveiled at the Park of African Heroes in Cuba on Thursday at a ceremony attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Cuban leadership said the unveiling of the Bust of the late President Kenyatta at the Park of African Heroes in Havana was significant as it goes along way in demonstrating the rich history Kenya and Cuba have in terms of Liberation struggles.

The park was built for heroes who relate to the liberation struggle of African independence from the colonial powers.

Mzee Jomo Kenyatta’s bust is the 17th of the African Heroes on display at the Park.

 

The recognition of the Late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta as one of African Heroes is a clear manifestation of his premier place among others in African history.

Speaking during the unveiling ceremony, President Kenyatta thanked people of Cuba for their selfless and persistent solidarity with the African people.

President Kenyatta said Africa and the African peoples would forever be grateful to Cuba as they have been the biggest benefactors of Cuba’s revolutionary stance.

“Africa will forever cherish its relationship with Cuba. Together we will continue to forge mutually beneficial partnerships for the prosperity of our peoples and nations,” said the President.

“I take this opportunity to thank you and the people of Cuba for your solidarity and comradeship in the African liberation movements against colonialism, settler imperialism and apartheid,” said the President.

He pointed out that the Cuban people held strongly to the deep conviction that their freedom was inextricably linked to the freedom of Africa.

He pointed Kenya would not take for granted honour granted to its founding father, as the Park recognizes and celebrates the huge contributions of Africa heroes made in the liberation struggle for Africa.

“In honour of our founding fathers, Kenya and Cuba will continue strengthening relations through the principled development of human relationships based on mutual respect,” said the President.

President Kenyatta pointed out that it is the historical relationship that the two countries celebrate as it continues to inspire a new generation of African-Caribbean leaders.

“It is worth noting that during the Cuban revolutionary war, Fidel Castro named one of the Brigades the ‘Mau Mau’ in honour of the freedom fighters in Kenya,” said President Kenyatta.

The Cuban Minister for Culture Abel Prieto termed the late Kenyan founding father as an icon whose example of heroism inspired many to take up arms against the colonial masters.

A lobby for Kenyans  in the diaspora is urging voters to reject the  Building Bridges Initiative report in the  referendum being championed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

According to Commonwealth Voter Privileges Right Association (COVPRA) the report is being imposed on Kenyans after the views of  certain groups and  elected leaders views were rejected..

Uhuru and Raila have rejected amendments to the final report saying those opposing it had time to give their views to the fourteen member committee they appointment.

 

The lobby avers that the recommendations in the final report do not represent the position of all Kenyans and a contested referendum would divide Kenyans.

“Kenyans should reject the BBI report. It is two man initiative that is being imposed on the people. The clergy have rejected it, several groups have rejected it. It’s not a Wanjiku Initiative. A few people and their surrogates want to change the Constitution for their personal gain,” Mr David Kimengere Waititu, the association’s Organising secretary told the Nation.

“It would have been  necessary to allow debate on all the issues that  arose in the final report  before coming  up with a bill. Kenyans are being taken for a ride,”  he said.

In June the group petitioned the committee  led by Garissa senator Yusuf Hajji to allow views from all dissenting voices saying all Kenyans should be allowed to participate.

“Freedom to Assembly, Freedom of expression and Freedom to political participation are so important in a  process like this one. It would be a sham  if the BBI Team was to ignore the views of some Kenyans. During the  meetings to sensitize the public on the initiative,” Kimengere said.

Leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto and civil society are opposed to some of the proposals in the final report.

The group says a contested referendum would leave the country divided.

“We do not want a process that would leave Kenyans more divided. Let all Kenyans reject this report in a referendum to save their country from a few people who think they own Kenya.  We in Covpra, have our motherland at heart,” he said.

 Covpra said that the future of Kenya lies in the hands of the hollo polloi and not it’s leaders.

“ We call upon the Kenyans poor not to buy to the schemes of the dynasties. Let us protect our country by rejecting this monster called BBI if it goes to the referendum.

The group said in a statement that Kenyans should reject plots by politician to engage in chaos.

“At the end, this might result to   a badly contested referendum and  create a poisoned society ahead of the 2022 general elections. Let’s refuse any incitement to violence and stand up against the dynasties to shape the future of Kenya,” he says.

In their June petition, the group cited the strained relations between the Executive and the Judiciary and the fall out in the ruling Jubilee party over the process as a matter of concern.

“Our position stands that there is no proposal  to fix the simmering tensions between the two arms of government and between the two leaders of the Executive,” Mr Kimengere stated.
