Kenya: remembering Robert Ouko

You missed This writes about the 15th anniversary of Robert Ouko‘s murder, “You see the list of people who have died to stop the truth over the Ouko murder ever coming out is rather lengthy and includes several clear cases of poisoning. For example former police commissioner Philip Kilonzo who worked hard to sell a ridiculous suicide theory to Superintendent John Troon was lured away from his beer under the pretext of viewing a cow that somebody wanted to sell to him. When he came back to his drink and sipped I briefly, witnesses say that he made a comment about the drink having some strange taste. Moments later he was dead. No investigations have ever been carried out and nobody has been brought to book over this murder to date.”
