On Friday, Jan 26, the High Court of Kenya ruled against the deployment of 1,000 police officers to Haiti, where they were to act as pawns overseeing the destruction of a sovereign nation state. In a courageous display of nationalism, the Kenyan court defied extreme pressure on the part of the global geopoliticians who were quietly working on a precedent-setting scheme to have the Global South oversee its own destruction. Coming, as it did, on the same day as the ICJ ruling against genocide in Gaza, it was a useful and timely strike against the unipolar order.
In his ruling, Judge Enock Chacha called the plan “illegal” and “invalid,” specifically stating that “any decision by any state organ or state officer to deploy police officers to Haiti … contravenes the constitution [of Kenya] and the law and is therefore unconstitutional, illegal and invalid.” In a statement on his official X account, Dr. Ekuru Aukot, the sole plaintiff who brought the original suit, said, “We stand with the people of Haiti, and we will do everything in our power to ensure our police won’t be used to interfere with the sovereignty of the Republic of Haiti. Furthermore, we remind [Kenyan] President @WilliamsRuto that he took an oath to obey, respect, uphold and defend the constitution of Kenya, not UN security council resolutions. We call on the government of Kenya to focus on providing security to troubled regions in Kenya….” [emphasis added]
Officially named the Multinational Security Support (MSS) Mission, the deployment calls for an eventual total of 5,000 police officers to be deployed in Haiti, to “combat crime and gangs,” which operate in the country with impunity in the absence of any viable international proposal to address the real cause of the crisis—Dope, Inc’s hold on the nation. With the US and Canada taking the lead, the UN Security Council approved the mission in October, 2023, with Kenya, 10 other Caribbean nations, and the Bahamas committed to supply unspecified numbers of additional troops. The original request for foreign forces came from the despised, illegitimate Prime Minister Ariel Henry, who remains in power, thanks only to the largesse of Anglo-American powers.
