o MigunaMR MIGUNA WE WILL KILL YOU WHEN YOU COME BACK.WE NEEDYOUR KIDNEY.SAHIZI TUTAKUTUMIA MAJINI ZA MOMBASASent from my Nokia phone.”I do not know who this person is. I have never communicated with her/him.Following barely a day after the chilling one party type demonstrations against me led by the ODM MP for Nyando, Fred Outa, in Ahero, in which they not only burnt myeffigy, but also participated in a mock burial of a coffin, it is clear that the PrimeMinister Raila Odinga and his supports have resolved to engage in physical,emotional, psycholigical and other attacks in order not just to divert attention from theissues raised in my book; their intention is also to permanently silence dissent and killdebate.Suppression of dissent. Muzzling one’s opponents. Threats of assassinations. Personalattackes. These cannot be good for the rule of law, contituitionalism and goodgovernance. They are not traits one can associate with a person who claims to be the best reformer in the country.Eerily, Raila Odinga and his campaign secretariat have been DIRECTLY linked tothese acts of hooliganism and lawlessness. None other than his deputy patron of Friends of Raila (FORA) lobby group, Gitobu Imanyara, addressed a press conferenceto hurl epithets at me and scandalise my name. He claimed, falsely, that I was a“fugitive from justice” even though I have not been charged with any criminaloffence. The same day – and in what is clearly a coordinated attack – Raila’s long-standing speech-writer and consultant, Sarah Elderkin, released a broadside againstme and accused me of all manner of things withoput any subnstantiation. Readers willrecall that Sarah’s opinion of me is contained in pages 496-498 of my book. Morever,she wasnt present at the meetings she purports to report on and not privy to thediscussions. How can she then refute things she is ignorant of?Raila should come out in the open and confront the facts in my book. She cannot hide behind Caroli Omondi, Sarah Elderkin, Gitobu Imanyara and maky other busy bodieswho Kenyans havent bestowed the title of “Prime Minister” on. Raila is DIRECTLYaccountable to the people of Kenya, including me. He cannot hide forever as the truthhas a stubborn way of curling against the culture of impunity.Finally, I appeal to the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mathew Iteere, the CID Director and the Director General of the National Security Service, Mr. Gichangi, to throughlyand expeditiously investigate the threat against me and apprehend the people behindthem and have them prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
