Questions remain over the final hours of CS Nkaissery life
The strangeness of the final hours of General and Cabinet Secretary Joseph Ole Nkaissery can be stopped, as the revelation that he was apparently eating at Bomas until late that evening. A restaurant and a place closed of from the public by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) as the National Talley Centre (NTC) was set-up there.
So the CS Nkaissery went in there passed the gates, ate and had a marvelous time in a closed off space. While leaving later close to 21.00, because he had to reach 21:00 news at home. While the President in his announcement of the death, that they took him from his home about 21:30. Because he was feeling unwell. Some say dizzy, some say high blood-pressure. Sylvia Chebets story of the final hours to Kenya Citizens TV on ‘Retracing Nkaissery last moments’ was not similar to the stories told by others. Some has reported that the CID had evidence of the CS being at Bomas until 03:00 drinking beer. Clearly, the stories doesn’t add up.
Uhuru Kenyatta Speech Transcript:
“Today is a sad day for Kenya and all our people. We lost a gallant officer, an officer who has for the most part of his life served with total dedication and love for his country. Maj General Joseph Nkaissery was a man who believed in this country, believed in the principles and foundation on which this country was built. A man who dedicated most of his life to serving this great nation. I personally have lost a friend, a colleague, whom as late as yesterday we spent part of the day praying together for peace for this country, whom as late as 9.30 last night we were discussing issues pertaining and relating to peace, to unity in this country. Indeed on one of his last notes he spent discussing his great passion, which was Kenya’s preparedness for the Junior Athletics (IAAF U18 Championships) that is supposed to commence in the next few days.” (Uhuru Kenyatta, 08.07.2017).
Some even says he was dead on arrival to Karen Hospital in Nairobi. As the Post-mortem has not been released, the speculations keeps rising. As the flaws in the stated timelines between friends of the deceased and the public statement on the President. Precisely shows to the world, that the government have stated different than what Chebets did. Therefore, the is a lie somewhere and what is hidden in Bomas, Karen Hospital or even in the car of Nkaissery is hard to imagine. Even if there is a cover-up going on. Since, none of the vital information has been released.
The Hospital has later revealed that the CS didn’t die of a heart-attack or had high blood-pressure. Combined with the different stories in what he was up to and whereabouts. The probable causes turns more sinister and strike of ill-intent by another party towards the CS. As his dead on arrival, seem more likely. Since the wife Hellen Nkaissery, says her man was healthy and in good shape.
Because if you look a bit deep into the day:
First at Uhuru Park for prayers with the President. Travel from there to the State House for lunch. Then held a crisis security meeting with Julius Karangi, who has no constitutional mandate for taking part of such an exercise. Than leaves the State House for the closed off to the public Bomas, where he drinks beer with friends and family. Before either leaving for 21:00 news or stays until 03:00.
Here comes the tricky part:
Some has stated he came into a routine check-up at night at Karen Hospital, which is rare and unique for any character. Later a Senior Presidential Press Spokesperson said he was dead on arrival. While a Senior Jubilee Digital Team that he was drinking up late. So that counter these issues. Again, senior doctor, Dr James Mageri, who attended to him again releases a presser saying that Nkaissery was dead by the time he was being brought to the hospital. Within, few hours of his death the Interim CS Fred Matiang’i is announced and not long after issues curfew in parts of Kenya. This has all been done without the President visiting the Lee funeral home to confirm his death. So there are enough acts and enough questions about timeline of the final hours. As much as the involved and knowledge at state capacity. Since the State could act so swift and get appointed a new CS, while the detectives just started to probe the case both at his home and at Bomas.
The are lots of questions remaining, the official report are scheduled for Monday from the hospital, still the lateness shows the factors in play. That the final hit to the CS Nkaissery was severe and his demise was sealed. So what is the truth and what took his life? Since he was healthy man who suddenly and shockingly just passed away. Peace.
