Kajwang'

After the death of Otieno Kajwang’, key politicians and leaders allied to Raila Odinga are raising questions on his death. The Homa Bay Senator who was in parliament yesterday, collapsed and died just minutes before midnight.

First to arrive at the hospital were key Jubilee loyalists and politicians led by Senator Kithure Kindiki. They even announced that the Senator died of heart attack not even patient enough to wait for postmortem. They rushed to the media selling the story of heart attack without any official doctors report. Something which the corrupt Kenyan media immediately bought and ran with.

While Otieno Kajwang’ attended an ODM rally on Friday in Oyugis, he had a serious accident with a Toyota Land Cruiser which he hired from a Kisumu car leasing firm. He didn’t sustain any injuries but his bodyguard fractured his hand and is still in slings. He proceeded to the rally without going to hospital. Some have claimed that the accident might have resulted in a blood clot which might have caused the “heart attack.”

But would a heart attack due to blood clot cause excessive bleeding? Even while lying dead at Lee Funeral Home, Senator Kajwang’ has been bleeding heavily even people who viewed his body at Lee Funeral home were surprised.

Did the Senator swallow a poison at Bunge bar where he was seen as late as 10pm having a drink with others? Did the poison burst his heart? Having been a member of the Cabinet sub-committee on ICC, his death just like that of former MP John Thuo, raises many questions.

Otieno Kajwang’s death also comes when news emerges from UK how some of the top electoral leaders demanded “chicken” to fraudulently award contracts and print more ballots than needed for the 2013 general elections. Is the death a diversion?
