Moi never did it.
I have written two novels, one with my good friend Marriane Brinner, in which I claimed Moi was the mind behind the murder of the late Dr. Robert Ouko. I'm aware that this is a matter most Kenyans have forgotten about, but I have not. I just don't find the crazy stuff Kibaki is doing with Ali and Ringera very sexy. In fact, the games the President is playing at State House just stink.
Back to Moi and Ouko.
I have come by new and compelling evidence that exonerate Moi on the Ouko issue. It takes a big man like me to own up when new evidence refutes allegations made earlier. So since the premise of those two books, The Night Bob Died and A Shining Star in darkness was that Moi killed Ouko, I want to state categorically that Moi never did it.
I have been walked through the chronology of events that led up to Ouko's death, including the key players...and how the same man who masterminded Bob's death eventually staged a commando raid at the late Hezekiah Oyugi's Kileleshwa home. What is fascinating is the way the murderer staged the event to look like an inside job in the Moi administration.
The killer wasn't Moi...and neither was it Biwott.
