Although recent developments indicate that Prime Minister designate Raila Odinga's state security detail may have been withdrawn there is still no confirmation of this from Police headquarters as the police spokesman has refused to comment on the matter.
Raila's wife Ida Odinga complained this morning that the security personnel have been changed too many times in the few days that the odinga's have been accorded state security. This has meant that she has to show around total strangers in their Karen house every two days or so.
As I was writing this security personnel withdrawn early today had still not been replaced by a new batch, hence the suspicion that this time the security personnel may have been withdrawn for good.
Even if the state security is indeed still in place the behaviour described by Ida is very strange. Overhauling the entire security staff every few days is in itself a huge security risk to those being protected by it. Indeed the Odingas previously had their own fairly adequate security and the terrifying ordeal of having one's minders playing musical chairs on the job is very unfortunate.
Some political analysts could not help commenting on the sheer joy and glee Raila supporters have received his new "motorcade and state security status" with. Others have felt that coming so soon, it may have been an attempt to soften the ODM leader's stance on some difficult fine details in the Anan peace deal that are still being negotiated.
Indeed Kenyans are waiting with baited breath for news on what has been discussed in parliament today after the bombshell "government clarification" statement by head of the civil service and secretary to the cabinet Ambassador Francis Muthaura, yesterday.
We will keep you posted on developments.
