ODM leaders in Homa Bay County are now calling on the government to speed up investigations into sudden death of Cabinet Secretary for Interior Ministry Joseph Nkaissery.
Led by Homa Bay Senator Moses Otieno Kajwang’, the leaders regretted that very mysterious deaths of prominent personalities had occurred in the country but the government has not yet disclosed their causes.
The senator cited the death of his late brother Gerald Otieno Kajwang, Mutula Kilonzo, and Fidel Odinga among others whose causes of death were yet to be established.
At the same time, the senator added that the families of those affected were living in agony wondering how their next of kin might have died.
He said this time round, Kenyans must be told the truth regarding death of the CS alleging that he was in good health up to the last minute only to be pronounced dead by the time he was rushed to Karen hospital.
The ODM officials said this Sunday while on a campaign trail to drum up support for Raila Odinga’s bid for presidency at Kosele stadium in Rachuonyo South Sub County.
Kajwang added that they were confident Raila Odinga would clinch power come August 8 saying that all the loopholes of Jubilee government of rigging elections had been sealed off.
The legislator named re-constitution of IEBC, cancellation of a single votes’ tallying Centre at Bomas of Kenya and the cancellation tender awarded of printing of preisential ballot papers to Al Ghurair are some of the loopholes which have been sealed.
Others who also graced the occasion included Homa Bay Women Rep. Gladys Wanga, Governor Cyprian Otieno Awiti, his deputy Hamilton Orata among other ODM candidates.
Separately the Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale, has also called for expeditious investigations into the death of the departed Interior Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Nkaissery. The Senator said that fast-tracked results arising from the probe would stop suspicion among Kenyans, adding that trust was paramount in upholding peace.
Mr. Khalwale contended that cohesion would also be promoted if there was no casting of aspersions on leadership. He was addressing the burial ceremony of one Enock Mukonji in Chekulo Ward, Kakamega County, Sunday. The late Mukonji was the brother of Mr. Khalwale’s running mate Eng. James Lusamamba in the Kakamega gubernatorial race. Mr. Khalwale bashed the acting Cabinet Secretary (CS) of Interior Mr. Fred Matiang’i for imposing a curfew in Lamu soon after some people were killed last week. He said that this would impact negatively on tourism in the area, thereby crunching the economy even further. Mr. Khalwale, who is a contender in the gubernatorial seat against the incumbent, Wycliffe Opranya, was flanked by various Ford Kenya aspirants. Other candidates for the gubernatorial seat are Mabel Muruli (Jubilee) Michael Osundwa (ANC) and Suleiman Sumba (KANU).
