Nairobi – Political scientist Professor Mutahi Ngunyi has warned former members of the Mungiki sect against reappearing to work as government hitmen because they’ll be killed after performing the dirty task.
Professor Ngunyi was speaking to former Mungiki members who paid him a courtesy visit at his Capitol Hill office.
At the meeting, Ngunyi warned them against agreeing misused by the same government that used them to perform dirty job during the 2007 post election violence then killed them.
He urged them to keep on with their daily undertakings as they had moved on already. He told them that going back to where they were because the government has asked them would be a suicide mission.
Ngunyi asked them to think carefully about their lives and ask themselves why the government wants them at this particular time when Rt. Hon Raila Odinga is threatening their leadership by pushing them to the wall.
“You see my brothers; I too do not support Raila Odinga. As you may have seen in my previous writings, I detest Raila Odinga’s Presidency and I don’t even want to dream that that moment will come. My only concern is you the great sons and daughters of Mumbi. I am concerned on how the government is using Mr. Kuria to reassemble you so that you can defend it since human Rights prevents it from doing what they want you to do for it. They want to use you as a shield against NASA supporters. To them, you are just useful idiots. They want you to shed blood on their behalf just like they did after the 2007 elections. From there, they will eliminate you one by one” Said Ngunyi.
“I want to assure you that you are useless to the government but useful to it at times like this. I have worked for the government and I know exactly what I am talking about. My brothers, why would rich men use you to protect themselves and their wealth and dump you in forests after you accomplish their mission? Why would someone tell you you are a member of the “BUSINESS COMMUNITY” Yet you don’t even own a kiosk in CBD? Remember your families too need you. You remember what happened to your colleagues when the late Michuki was Internal Security Minister. Did he care that you were Kikuyus when he pulled you from your houses killed and dumped you in Karura and Ngong forests? Gentlemen, this Uthamaki leadership that you are called upon to protect, how do you benefit from it directly? Please go and rethink but I don’t want anybody to go out there and say that Ngunyi asked you not to protect your tribe. I am only being concerned because I know your fate after the mission is accomplished. I can assure you that Uhuru does not know you exist. As you go to think and make a decision, tell your former colleagues to remember consider their children, their loved ones and their businesses. ” He added.
Reliable sources indicate that the meeting was privately convened by the families of the sect that had a premonition of the impending danger against their loved ones.
