Then a few days ago I received the following email;
if you are using this tragic incident to make money then you are a fool, while Kenya is mourning you are out with such malicious/unpresided theories for your own benefit, i have been giving you a chance for you to fill my inbox with this ill-intended stories, please don't send me such stories.
Okay I am not good at blowing my own trumpet but I recently commissioned somebody to sift through the over 3,000 posts in Kumekucha and draw up some statistics on how many times we have made correct predictions or broken stories that come to the surface days, weeks and even many months later. They have not finished the exercise but so far the figures stand at a staggering 95%. I have been vindicated 9.5 out of 10 times. I think the percentage will reduce by the time they are done, but not by much.
We said here in Kumekucha from Day one (moments after the accident) that the Saitoti crash was NOT an accident. Many readers jeered, other were plain angry at the very “ludicrous” suggesting. Who would want to kill Saitoti?
Here is what was said in parliament yesterday. Read carefully between the lines and draw your own intelligent conclusions;
- Mutito MP Kiema Kilonzo, Kilgoris MP Gideon Konchella, Narok South MP Nkoidila Ole Lankas and Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo insisted that they were in contact with the families of Prof Saitoti and their lawyer Fred Ngatia who told them that they were not happy with the direction the investigations were taking.
- Narok South MP Nkoidila Ole Lankas said that the scene of the crash was interfered with by unknown people in a bid to hide evidence.
- MPs accused the government of frustrating foreign investigators by refusing to facilitate their enquiries. Consequently, the experts returned to South Africa on Wednesday night because of frustrations by the Ministry of Transport.
- The MPs also questioned why the government decided to upgrade the investigation into a commission of inquiry even before investigations had come up with a preliminary report on the cause of the crash.
- Nominated MP Rachael Shebesh (ODM) said she had a dossier linking the “traffickers in government” to the death of the two ministers. She added; “This is a very sensitive issue that touches on the death of our colleagues and Parliament is only used as a scapegoat when the actual traffickers are in government.”
- Ms Shebesh got even more sensational with her remarks when she added; “We want this information to come out only in the safety of a select committee, we have not even said a third of what we know about the deaths of our two colleagues, what we have can shut down this government.”
- Gichugu MP and presidential aspirant Martha Karua then asked the Speaker to give Ms Shebesh security and protection while the investigations are going on.
Today I have only one thing to say. The government has used commissions of inquiries for decades to reassure the public that they had nothing to hide. However from the history of these expensive exercises that waste taxpayers funds, they always end up proving the very opposite. If you were waiting for any conclusive evidence to prove that the government is hiding something over the Saitoti crash, then this is certainly it.
