Silvia Romano Kidnap: The Real Story

Post by fourier » Tue Sep 03, 2019 4:48 am

What happened in court yesterday? I have searched online, and I haven’t found anything. Even malindikenya.net & Africa Express have nothing about what transpired in Malindi court yesterday, 2 September, 2019.

As usual, no Kenyan media has reported anything about the Silvia Romano case in Malindi court yesterday. Some media might report it as “news” several days later.

I am now curious. What is it that happened in court that no one wants to report?

If it was possible, I would head straight to Malindi and be reporting LIVE from court. I hope the office of DPP will inform the world about what happened in court yesterday. As at this time, @ODPP_KE has not yet tweeted about yesterday’s events.

I hope at least either the DPP or DCI will tweet about it soon.

NB: I find it very odd that even after @ODPP_KE has very bravely pinned a tweet about the Silvia Romano case, apparently, Kenyans are not talking about it online (haven’t seen any mention of Silvia Romano by a Kenyan online). Or, is it possible that Kenyans are writing about it, but the guardians-of-the-internet are blocking the articles/tweets from view?

I hope a courageous person who has video or info about what transpired in court yesterday can send it to me, and I will post it here.

Silvia Romano Kidnap: The Real Story

Post by fourier » Thu Sep 05, 2019 2:04 am

Finally, 48 hours after the Silvia Romano alleged kidnappers’ court session on Monday, one website has reported that the Chief Magistrate postponed the trial to October. Whether that is true, we do not know.

NOTE: There were journalists and the general public in court, but NO ONE reported about it, until 2 days later. I know that by Wednesday (yesterday), no local media house had reported about what happened in the Malindi court on 2 September, and search engine queries about the matter returned NULL results.

Therefore, we can make the conclusion that either no media reported about the trial, or the search engines hid the results.

Back to the government-owned KNA & KBC. Why are they giving the trial a blackout? Are the CEOs to blame?

Personally, I don’t think the CEOs of KNA & KBC can be blamed for refusing to cover the Silvia Romano trial. And this is my reasons:

1. You are the CEO of KNA or KBC. You tell a producer/journalist that you want him to go and report on the Silvia Romano trial in Malindi. He informs you that his doctor warned him never to go within 10 kilometres of the ocean.

2. You are the CEO of KNA or KBC. You tell a producer/journalist that you want him to go and report on the Silvia Romano trial in Malindi. He tells you that he has a wife and kids…

I think that the danger people are associating with reporting on the Silvia Romano case is a bit exaggerated. All that the CEOs of KNA & KBC need to do, is to offer extra pay to a producer/journalist who will be brave enough to volunteer to cover the trial.

The producer/journalist will, of course, need to be provided with a driver cum bodyguard for the duration of the trial. The driver/bodyguard accompanies him to court, and accompanies him as he does his shopping etc. The journalist will be safe, as long as:
1. He doesn’t smoke or drink alcohol.
2. He does all his business during the day, and stays indoors at night.

The problem with a producer/journalist who takes alcohol is that he might decide to go out for a drink at night without his bodyguard. And if that happens, they will bury him right next to the other 2 Silvia Romano kidnappers.

Silvia Romano Kidnap: The Real Story

Is Silvia Romano in danger?

Ben Zygier was an Australian-Israeli citizen who was a veteran of the Israel Defense Forces and allegedly an agent of Mossad. He was imprisoned in Ayalon Prison, Ramla, Israel and died in custody in 2010…Prisoner X, Mr. X and Mister X were placeholder names for him while he was being held in strict secrecy for unspecified crimes…Other names [Used to hide Ben Zygier’s identity while in Israeli prison] were Ben Alon, Ben Allen, Benjamin Burrows.”

The life and strange death of Prisoner X

Mossad has come under criticism many times for using the passports and identities of citizens of foreign countries.

The fact that some Kenyan media houses had reported about the Silvia Romano case last month, and completely refused to report about the recent court session, can only mean one thing: The media houses feel threatened by powerful forces, who have made it clear to them that they don’t want the Silvia Romano matter publicised.

And how would powerful forces make such a threat? This how I think they have done it (speculating here): Each of the media houses publish dozens of webpages on their websites, including one about Silvia Romano. All webpages, less the Silvia Romano url, are indexed by the search engines.

The bosses at the media houses understand the threat, and decide not to take any chances. Result - blackout of Silvia Romano alleged kidnappers’ court case.

Suppose Kenya was ruled by dictator Idi Amin, and he heard that local media is being arm-twisted by powerful foreign entities not to report on a matter happening in Kenya - the Silvia Romano case.

President Amin would probably do the following:
1. Order the renaming of Malindi Airport to Silvia Romano Airport.
2. Order the renaming of the Malindi - Chakama highway to Silvia Romano Highway (Ms Romano was kidnapped in Chakama village).
3. Order that all meetings with visiting foreign dignitaries start with a 1 minute silence in remembrance of Silvia Romano.

Silvia Romano Kidnap: The Real Story

It is now 295 days since Silvia Romano was kidnapped in Chakama, Kilifi. She was kidnapped when she was 23 years old, and now she is already 24 years old.

The trial of the suspects accused of kidnapping her will, apparently, continue in October, 2019. Not sure about the exact date, because it is extremely difficult to find any information about Silvia Romano online, and there is a media blackout about her in Kenya, and globally.

It is likely that Silvia was livid when she learnt about this thread. But now I believe that she is glad that someone is writing about her, since she has reason to fear that “they” might liquidate her, and lay the blame on the 2 ghosts“missing kidnappers”, who she knows lie dead and buried in Tsavo East National Park.
