Imanyara.

Gitobu Imanyara’s mega assassination claims: cheap publicity stunt or do state assassins actually put their murderous blue print in traceable writing?


I’m not surprised that his letter and list of wanteds did not make headlines in any of the dailies today.

Am I the only one who doesn't know anything of this Gitobu spectacle?

Imanyara's life may very well be in danger. he has rubbed a few high shoulders the wrong way. but i doubt any assassin wuld go about it leaving a paper trail.

Did Paul Muite ever get assassinated? I remember he also had a claim.

Don't know why I don't think Imanyara is crying wolf.Was a letter written to him? Yes!!! Do I think he wrote it himself? No!!

Statehouse occupants are not that dumb enough to write someone a letter that they are going to kill them, but you've gotta admit they are not very bright either. Do you think the vandalism in Muite's house came out of nowhere? That was surely the handiwork of Lucy and maybe the snake rattler. It is that 'mtado' attitude of theirs.

The whole point of this (to the rest of us) is that if Imanyara dies we know who to point fingers to, so it is the responsibility of statehouse to ensure the people on that 'list' stay alive at all costs!

If they--whoever they are--didn't kill him in the 198os, they're not going to try now. I don't buy the story. (I still have an old copy of an Amnesty International report on human-right abuses in Kenya, and Imanyara's picture is in it. Takes me back years!)

Thanks people for your inputs. The case has since taken some importance of some sort with the concerns from the US and a few speeches from Saitoti. Let's wait and see.

dear shiku

the burden of proof would be morbidly distasteful, i.e the only "real" way to prove there was truth in the allegation is if they involuntarily turn up at the mortuary.

i think i'd rather we give the benefit of doubt in such matters, ama?
