Population Control – The Kenyan Perspective


The first birth control clinic was opened in Nairobi, the Kenyan
Capital, 44 years ago. The second one opened a year later in 1956 at
the Port Town of Mombasa. These two amalgamated into the Family a
Planning Association of Kenya (FPAK). In 1963, FPAK was affiliated
with the International Planned Parenthood Federation, thus becoming
the first association in Africa south of the Sahara to join this
monster which has nearly destroyed our society. Our nightmare just
began.

Following publication of a report on the demographic trends by the
Population Council (New York; 1968), which partly talked of still
unproven adverse effects of rapid population growth on socio-economic
development, the Government of Kenya was coerced to become overtly
involved in birth control. Thus a young nation then bustling with
enthusiasm, hope and ambition for its people who had endured the yoke
of colonialism suddenly offered itself to imperialism like it had
never seen before, as we will soon discover.

We were then only 7.9 million people in a vast empty country rich
in resources but no people to exploit them. Believe it, we were said
to be overpopulated—34 years from then we are only 23 million—in
this vast still empty land.

The United States of America has used vast amounts of money over
time to destroy the people of Kenya. USAID and other Non-Governmental
Organizations funded mainly by the U.S. Government have targeted our
people with a ruthlessness that makes one shudder. The International
Planned Parenthood Federation, the Population Council (a subsidiary of
the Rockfeller group), Population Action International, and the United
Nations through its agencies like WHO and UNFPDA have targeted Kenya
for depopulation at the expense of the integral development of its
people. Some examples of the stark realities living side by side with
the millions of dollars for population control include:

  • Our health sector is collapsed. Thousands of the Kenyan people will die of Malaria whose treatment costs a few cents, in health facilities whose stores are stalked to the roof with millions of dollars worth of pills, IUDS, Norplant, Depo-provera, most of which are supplied with American money.
  • Some of these contraceptives like Depo-provera cause terrible side-effects to the poor people in Kenya, who do not even have competent medical check-ups before injection. Many are maimed for life. The hypertension, blood clots, heart failure, liver pathology and menstrual disorders cannot be treated due to the poor health services. The American Government seems to want to solve the problem of poverty by reducing the number of the poor.
  • Special operation theatres fully serviced and not lacking in instruments are opened in hospitals for sterilization of women and some men. In the same hospitals, emergency surgery cannot be done for lack of basic operating instruments and supplies. Most of the women are sterilized without even knowing it is final. Some with only one child. Some are induced with financial assistance to accept sterilization. Horrified sterilized women now trot from hospital to hospital looking for reversal of the Tubal Ligation. This is breaking marriages especially when the single child or two succumb to the myriad tropical diseases—with easy treatment that is not available.
  • Millions of dollars are used daily to deceive, manipulate and misinform the people through the media about the perceived good of a small family—while the infant mortality rate skyrockets. Some of this money is not used to educated people on basic hygiene, proper diet or good farming methods that would be useful development, but it appears that the aim of population controllers is to decimate the Kenyan people.

  • I am a practicing gynecologist in Kenya and I would like to share
    with you facts about some of the patients I see daily:

A mother
brought a child to me with pneumonia, but I had not penicillin to give
the child. What I have in the stores are cases of
contraceptives.

Malaria is epidemic in Kenya. Mothers die from this disease every
day because there is no chloroquine, when instead we have huge
stockpiles of contraceptives. These mothers come to me and I am
helpless.

I see women coming to my clinic daily with swollen legs — the
cannot climb stairs. They have been injured by Depo-provera,
birth-control pills, and Norplant. I look at them and I am filled with
sadness. They have been coerced into using these drugs. Nobody tells
them about the side effects, and there are no drugs to treat their
complications. In Kenya if you injure, you injure the whole family.
Women are the center of the community. The well-being of the family
depends on the well-being of the mother.

America has been a blessed country. This nation saved the world
three times. During the first World War, the second World War and the
Cold War. The American people can still save many in the world from
preventable diseases. I do not believe that Americans want their taxes
used to hurt other people. Why do you not stop this money being used
for contraceptives and use it instead to provide clean water, good
prenatal and postnatal care, good farming methods and rural
electrification. Do the American people know that the millions of
dollars spent for population control are used in the ways I have
described? Why does your government not deal directly with our
government but instead uses a third party like IPPF, which has no
respect for the values of our people and our laws?

It is therefore clear, that contrary to what one is led to believe,
American Aid to Kenya is not a reasonable attempt to bring about
integral development, rather it is a comprehensive and highly
organized campaign to kill off as many of our people as are necessary
so that the U.S. and other developed countries can continue exploiting
our national resources.

Therefor, for the first world to dominate the third world through
contraceptive imperialism under the big stick of withholding
development assistance for non-compliance makes us conclude that, not
only the so-called Population Assistance to third world countries but
even the “development assistance” has been tailored first to serve the
interests of the richest of the rich of this world.

USAID is the single biggest supporter and promoter of population
control in Kenya. The programs it funds are implemented with an
aggressive and elitist ruthlessness. In Kenya the target are always
the poor and the illiterate who are pressured and tricked into using
dangerous drugs which are often banned in the west, or who are
sterilized during childbirth without either their knowledge or
consent.

You in the media, those in the White House and many in the United
States Congress continue to deny these facts. We in Kenya are a people
like you who are entitled to the same human rights and dignity as
yourselves, but our right to live a normal human existence is ignored
by globalist decision makers. If the funds you use to kill, maim,
subjugate, dominate and break us to nothingness were used to cultivate
our extraordinary resources, Kenya alone could feed more than half the
African continent. Dear Americans, you cannot build your own security
on the insecurity and degradation of others. You cannot build your own
wealth on the poverty and destitution of people in the least developed
nations.
