Stop Press: Breaking News
Impeccable sources have just informed me that the recent meeting, whose agenda everybody is speculating about, between retired Presidfent Moi, Mutula Kilonzo Daniel Maanzo and a few representatives from President Kibaki was NOT to discuss any particular political union but in fact discussed a most unlikely subject.
Top on the agenda of discussion was Kumekucha. Yep. This blog.
Apparently Moi is furious at the publication of Kenya Betrayed (which we started serializing about 2 weeks ago), more so when the author is a person who knows him intimately well. In fact author Matrianne Brinner has already been threatened several times when she first published A Shining Star without including the real names of the players. Mutula Kilonzo told Briner then that she would have to face "a battle of Tsunami proportions" and that "even if she went to hide in the moon" they would find her and sue her for everything she was worth.
What has now upset the old man even more is the publication by Briner elsewhere of Daniel arap Moi and Mwai Kibaki - the Making of a Kenyan President http://mariannebriner-excellency.blog.com
Interestingly you will remember that Mutula has insisted all along that the meeting had nothing to do with politics and was that of a client and his lawyer. He may just be telling the truth as this latest bombshell seems to suggest.
It is widely known within inner circles that Mutula Kilonzo is campaigning very hard to be the next AG.
It is not known what else the former President may have read in Kumekucha that he did not like. Unlike laid-back-hakuna-matata-President-Kibaki, Moi is known to be ultra-senstive about some of these things.
