So Moi now believes the late Prof Saitori was capable of higher leadership. Well, he couldn't be more right with his eulogy that “Saitoti was the cornerstone which the builders ignored,” mourned the former president." Except he failed to accept that he tops the list of those builders who refused the cornerstone. Hypocrisy!!
Even before the late Saitoti is provided with a grave to turn in disgust, former President Moi was at his home lying through his spacious teeth.
By declaring that he was campaigning for Saitoti's presidency, Moi must be at his vintage best taking Kenyans for fools. The good professor of Kenyan politics has conveniently forgotten KISIRANI KASARANI.
It seems Moi's humiliation of Saitoti was not complete before the former retired from politics in 2002. Moi is still determined to shamelessly punctuate the slander with a period over Saitoti's dead body.
One can only imagine the counterfactual if Moi backed Saitoti in 2002. May as Kenya's third president he would have been using more secure helicopters and still alive. But such speculations can only go as far as helping enlarge Moi's obtuse ego at deceit.
On the flipside assuming Moi was rooting for Saitoti so what? He lost his political midas touch and rungu in 2002. Who knows maybe Saitoti would have been comprehensively beaten just like his project then.
Moi may boast having known Prof Kinuthia Kiarie for along time having plucked him from his dusty and chalky offices in Chiromo. But the meteoric rise also spelt the beginning of Saitoti's nightmare.
The son of Muthengi was constantly stalked by both perceived and real murderous shadows. No wonder bullet proof vest formed his second layer of skin.
Moi's insensitive and shameless lies about Saitoti makes the hitherto powerman and evil total man (BIKINI) Biwott look like a saint.
Granted, Saitoti had his hands in many scams including the heinous Goldenberg. But for civility sake Moi and his ilk must not laugh nor ululate on his grave. Shame.
