Political scientist Mutahi Ngunyi has sensationally claimed on K24 that the late Prof Saitoti was most likely assassinated, by drug barons fearing he would exposed them.
After dismissing Saitoti's presidential bid as weightless, the Consulting House commentator lists numerous enemies lined against Saitoti including Al-Shabaab and the fear he would be a prosecution witness at the Hague in his capacity at the chair of parliamentary ICC committee.
Hypothesising three fronts as cause for Saitoti's death, Ngunyi concludes that Ojode was just a collateral damge, being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The target according to him was the Internal Security Minister and Police Commissioner Iteere.
Well, true to our national tradition no politician dies accidentally or naturally. But linking Saitoti's death to the drug lord can only be wished away by those who are only comfortable with the easy/cheap explantions after seeing the Jicho pevu investigations.
The imagination of Saitoti tabling his report about the Artur brothers must have sent a chill down the spine of the untouchables. Add that to the fact that they couldn't afford Saitoti's price then elimination remains the sure guarantee. You see Saitoti is no Chris Murungaru.
We must be ready to pay the ultimate prize of being a NARCO STATE. Na bado.
