My Website Was Not Designed To Compete!

My Road Safety Website –

After Compliments;

From My Heart!

You simply cannot change the hearts. minds and souls of people that are jealous and envious of others – and some that I would even go far to say are polarised influenced and racialists – even if they pretend that they are not!

Some centres are well known for their prejuidiced and narrow minded outlooks! Trying to change these people is like banging your head against brick walls – it only gets swollen and red for no added advantage or profit!

When I had designed this website – with the help of my Daughter Engineering Graduate – it was not intended to compete with the bigger NGO ones. It was merely to support my book Being The Safe Driver! Behind The Wheel! The New Road Safety Book – www.createspace.com/4097374

Being The Safe Driver - Front

Oh My God!this-final-book-cover-300x21511.jpg

I was very much hurt and pained by receiving some comments like – Do not expect any kind of support from us because you are not a NGO – and we do not support Individual Schemes like yours! I have also tried to keep in contact and in touch with some High Profile VIPs – but have been largely sidelined, marginalised and ignored!

They only want to remain alone in the news! Nobody else to come in!

I do not know how long these bad hearts and approaches will continue – these jealousies and envies?? It is a bloody shame – a disaster.

I did not write the book or create this website for ‘favours’ from anyone! Trust me when saying this!

I did it because I believed in the cause very strongly. It is my contribution to The Society – to give what I can give and afford to give! If some want to think differently – they are welcome to do so. No one can stop one to think what one wants – or intends to think or do!

Besides I am a 65 years old Omani – retired and with minimum pension income. I wrote the book after seeing this poor young Omani girl at 28 years die tragically with 9 members of her family in a terrible horrific accident!

And seeing the horrible tragic everyday news of Road Accidents fatalities and injuries – everyday in the news! I said – I am an Author! I should write on this! The book idea then formed – and my contribution to Society.

I am not HSE – nor an Engineer. It was the most difficult book for me to write – over 6 months! It is a subject I am not familiar with – and hardly know!

May Allah God Guide us all in the Right Path and Way – Amin Amen

I was very much pained and hurt by some crude remarks received by some after the books were published (USA and India Version). What for? And why all these things? Because it was me who published the book? And the website?

Yet these same peoples go to pray – as if butter will not melt in their mouths!

I am not after Fame and Popularity – if I were I would not be in this position today.

As a result I will not update this website with the Latest News – because my work is already done. Appreciate it or not!

Cover the others as much as you want! I am not jealous nor am I bitter – but my conscience (and heart!) is clean.

Allah God Be With You All – Amin Amen

But it is still so sad and disappointing – that is why we will never succeed or progress. The jealousies and envies will always control our minds and thoughts – and the things that we do! Thinking always Inside The Box and Can Never See The Bigger Picture!

Shame really! Bloody Shame!

Regards,

Majid Al Suleimany – June 16th 2013.

Mau Mau torture victims to receive

compensation – Hague

Mau Mau veterans gathered for a press conference on the government announcement

Kenyans tortured by British colonial forces during the Mau Mau uprising will receive payouts totalling £20m, Foreign Secretary William Hague has announced.

He said the UK government recognised Kenyans were tortured and it “sincerely regrets” the abuses that took place.

A lawyer for the victims said they “at last have the recognition and justice they have sought for many years”.

Thousands of people were killed during the Mau Mau revolt against British rule in Kenya in the 1950s.

Mr Hague also announced plans to support the construction of a permanent memorial to the victims in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

‘Unreservedly condemn’

‘Battered and left for dead’

Kenya torture claimant Wambuga Wa Nyingi

Wambuga Wa Nyingi, 84, detailed his torture at the hands of the British colonial authorities in a witness statement.

He was a tractor driver and member of the pro-independence Kenya African Union – but never took the Mau Mau oath.

He survived the Hola massacre in 1959, when 11 Kenyans were beaten to death by prison guards in a detention camp.

He said: “I was battered on the back of my head and around my neck repeatedly with a club. I believe that the beating went on for up to 20 minutes…

“I lay unconscious with the 11 corpses for two days in a room where the corpses had been placed awaiting burial.

“The people who put me there thought I was also dead, but I was in fact unconscious.”

“I would like to like to make clear now, and for the first time, on behalf of Her Majesty’s government, that we understand the pain and grievance felt by those who were involved in the events of the emergency in Kenya,” he told the Commons.

“The British government recognises that Kenyans were subject to torture, and other forms of ill-treatment at the hands of the colonial administration.

“The British government sincerely regrets that these abuses took place and that they marred Kenya’s progress towards independence.”

Mr Hague said 5,228 victims would receive payments totalling £19.9m following an agreement with lawyers acting for the victims, who have been fighting for compensation for a number of years.

But he said Britain still did not accept it was legally liable for the actions of what was a colonial administration in Kenya.

The British High Commissioner in Nairobi also made a public statement on the settlement to members of the Mau Mau War Veterans’ Association in Kenya.

BBC east Africa correspondent Gabriel Gatehouse said the reaction there was “muted”.

‘Big milestone’

He said it may have been because the announcement had been expected or because it was marred by the UK government continuing to deny liability for some of the abuses.

That said, it was a “big milestone” for the Mau Mau veterans, said our correspondent.

In a statement, Martyn Day, of law firm Leigh Day, said it took “courage to publically acknowledge for the first time the terrible nature of Britain’s past in Kenya”.

“The elderly victims of torture now at last have the recognition and justice they have sought for many years. For them this significance of this moment cannot be over emphasised,” he said.

But Bryan Cox QC, of Tandem Law, said there were “thousands” of further claims that remain unresolved and “the matter was far from over”.

Background

  • The Mau Mau, a guerrilla group, began as a violent campaign against white settlers in 1952
  • The uprising was eventually put down by the British colonial government
  • The Kenya Human Rights Commission says 90,000 Kenyans were executed, tortured or maimed
  • It says 160,000 people were detained in appalling conditions
  • Kenya gained independence in 1963

He said the law firm was working with more than 8,000 Kenyans who were still awaiting an agreement with the UK government.

The UK has argued that all liabilities for the torture by colonial authorities was transferred to the Kenyan Republic upon independence in 1963 and that it could not be held liable now.

But in 2011, the High Court in London ruled that four claimants did have “arguable cases in law”.

Their lawyers allege Paulo Muoka Nzili was castrated, Wambuga Wa Nyingi was severely beaten and Jane Muthoni Mara was subjected to appalling sexual abuse in detention camps during the rebellion. A fourth claimant, Ndiku Mutwiwa Mutua, died last year.

‘Historic judgement’

After the ruling, the case went back to the High Court to consider a claim by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) that the actions had been brought outside the legal time limit.

The FCO said it had faced “irredeemable difficulties” in relation to the availability of witnesses and documents.

But in October last year, the court ruled the victims had established a proper case and allowed their claims to proceed to trial despite the time elapsed.

At the time, victims’ lawyer Mr Day said he would be pressing for a trial “as quickly as possible” but would also be pushing for the government to reach an out-of-court settlement.

The Mau Mau, a guerrilla group, began a violent campaign against white settlers in 1952, but the uprising was eventually put down by the British colonial government.

The Kenya Human Rights Commission says 90,000 Kenyans were executed, tortured or maimed, and 160,000 people were detained in appalling conditions, although a number of historians believe the figure is lower.

THE BIQ QUESTION NOW!!

WHATABOUT AL NAQBA? WHAT ABOUT THE POOR PALESTINIANS? THEIR CASE IS FAR SERIOUS – THE MAUMAU STILL HAVE THEIR LAND – THE PALESTINIANS LOST EVERYTHING THRU BRITISH ZIONISTS ANTI SEMITIC THE PALESTINIANS TREATMENT!!
