Hon. Muchai’s real assassins must be arrested.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has rightfully embedded his name, and that of our great Country on the annals of History. He will always be cited beside such greats as; Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela. Uhuru’s down to earth attributes and modest demeanor is a first for any President. His fortitude and commitment to the people of Kenya have endeared him to millions around the World.
Unfortunately, it’s evident that enemies of our national achievements, both local and international; are fermenting turmoil and sabotaging National agenda through their agents. Our opposition, some in the media, and NGO’s have submitted to greed and lawlessness. They are selling our mother land for chow.
For Kenya to attain the national dream of becoming a developed country by the year 2030, we must revitalize our resilience in fighting crime and corruption.
These said, time has come while taking the diaspora for granted just won’t cut. The Diaspora” not those masqueraders in Nairobi posturing as diaspora representatives; must weigh in on what is currently unfolding in our great Country. We must not only carry the flag in foreign capitals, send billions in to the Kenyan Economy and proudly cheer our leaders while they visit our host Countries.
- (a) Up to these point, we hold on to the believe that Hon Muchai’s death was an assassination, his assassins are professionals. His assassins knew the exact physical and psychological condition of Muchai and his security guards. These is only conceivable where a victim’s close associate/s is/are compromised.
(b)Evidence adduced so far demonstrate a high class intellectual and military precession not available cheaply, like a well scripted movie, this assassins confidently picked and executed their Plan. They knew when to strike and even avoid CCT Scrutiny.
(c)The assassin’s confidence, choice of the victims to start killing; 1st,2 3rd and then Mr. Muchai. Incontrovertible evidence by a single juvenile” correctly worded or not; what did I tell; it’s too late now; could not have been extemporaneous.
(d)The thought of our security chiefs holding an international media conference, insulting the intelligence of Kenyans with implausible allusion that investigations are over” Muchai’s Murder was a; ‘Car Jacking gone awry’ is gobbledygook.
It’s reminiscent of a similar theory exactly 15 years ago, February 1990; Kenyans were told that John Robert Ouko, Then Minister for foreign Affairs; walked miles, (at night) a gasoline tank on his back, found a nice place to die. He proceeded to shot himself through the head, struck a match-box setting himself ablaze, then professionally arranged the scene for the Cameras.
It is evident this investigation have been fraught with numerous inconsistencies, contradictions and unmitigated neglect. The current position reeks of mediocrity and malfeasance.
If this Ruffians’ currently in custody: are the real Killers and have confessed, where are the real Guns, ‘’bodyguards pistols” not the defaced replica, where is the “Silver bullet” Hon Muchai’s Briefcase and its contents. Every G3 is a G3. Until ballistic evidence prove otherwise..
Solving past and current murders including that of Hon Muchai is the priority of the Jubilee Government. Kenyans are hopeful this will be done.
Hon Muchai was a champion against Corruption, a Kenyan, and a senior national figure. He also had a Family, and a Community. Even the Six suspects in custody are Kenyans, they too have Families. It’s disingenuous for the likes of Mudavadi and others to trivialize and politicize security issues. The world knows that Hon Muchai was at war with Runaway corruption at COTU. CS Kazungu working closely with Atwoli and Hon Muchai must be aware of information that is not in the public Domain.
Threatening Kazungu and trying to gag him is unacceptable, he may have been carried away by emotions, but he should be free to give evidence to the Government without intimidation.
A white Green, Luo, Kamba, Luhya, Kikuyu or hell knows what; Criminal is an individual and should face the full force of the law. Shouldn’t Kazungu’s tribe also rise in his defense? We must start supporting individuals and institutions to succeed in their responsibilities. The Police and the courts must be allowed to do their job without political interference.
This is the Kenya we want now and for our Children.
