Reports have just emerged that Mungiki-led violence following last year's disputed elections were state-sanctioned. Well allow me to spoil the present party mood. These reports are categorical that Mungiki-led violence were planned and authorized from the heart of power-STATE HOUSE.
Predictably, Alfred Mutua already has all his limbs in his mouth is denial. In his characteristic self the goofing Mutua has told BBC that neither the President nor any government functionary would meet the Mungiki in darkness or otherwise. But history contracts that very proclamation, or doesn't it?
This damning report claims that meetings were hosted at the official residence of the president between the banned Mungiki militia and senior government figures. The singular aim it claims was to hire them as a defence force in the Rift Valley to protect the Kikuyu community.
According to BBC investigation a Mungiki member in hiding after receiving death threats revealed that three senior leaders of the sect were summoned to State House and singularly assigned the task of defending the Kikuyu in Rift Valley.
Ours is fast-paced politics complete with very destructive antics. The Mungiki ruse is no passing cloud. Add one plus one and you get today's demonstration by demanding Mungiki followers demanding release from jail of their leader Maina Njenga. Whether it is sour grapes or one party not honouring his side of the bargain will emerge very soon. So there comes the first wart in the festivities which Mutua has unwittingly dismissed as preposterous.
