The killing of Ruto’s security guard sergeant Kenei has fueled speculations of Ruto’s assassination. Sources within the DP’s circles are now fearing for his life and are calling for his security to be enhanced.
Sergeant Kenei was killed in cold blood in his house in Imara Daima estate. The killing has sparked fury and speculations in equal measure with the cause or motive of the murder yet to be established.
Kenei died from a bullet that passed through the forehead, ripping trough his temple and hitting the wall in what preliminary investigations indicate it was staged to look like suicide.
Unverified Occurence Book number allegedly recorded with the police and doing rounds on social media indicate that it was suicide.
However police have not confirmed on its authenticity and the exact cause of his death will await full investigations.
But even as investigations commence, Kenyans cannot stop speculating as to whether Sergeant Kenei was eliminated by the masterminds behind Echesa’s scam to conceal crucial evidence linking to the assassination of the deputy president.
Kenya is a country known for killing witnesses with crucial evidence or information. Prior to 2017 elections, IEBC ICT officer Chris Musando was killed in cold blood and his body found dumped in the company of a lady companion believed to be his girlfriend. His killers have not been found to date.
The cold murder of sergeant Kenei comes barely a day after police started investigation into the possibility that the two foreigners alleging to be complainants in the Echesa scam could be mercenaries hired to assassinate Ruto
A number of powerful political brokers led by Francis Atwoli and David Murathe have not shied away from hiding the disdained for William Ruto and publicly declaring that he will not be on the ballot in 2022.
These among others are endless questions Ruto’s supporters are asking after the killing of Sergeant Kenei. Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen was the first to raise the red flag about the possibility of mercenaries.
At the time, police were busy looking at the extortion angle in the scam when it was evident that if the two foreigners were serious investors as alleged, and have done business with other government entities around the world, they would have known that such a humongous tender is signed in full presence of top government officials and in the presence of their lawyers.
The murder of sergeant Kenei rekindles memories of La Mada hotel meetings where some cabinet secretaries led by Peter Munya are alleged to have met to plan the assassination of DP Ruto.
