TV documentary links Kenya to Kabuga
A documentary aired by Nation TV, a Kenyan television network, has linked unidentified officials within the government security circles to one Africa’s most wanted fugitives, Felicien Kabuga.
According to the seven-month investigation, the Genocide fugitive has for the last 14 years been under protection of the top security officials in the Kenyan government.
According to the documentary, available evidence shows that the fugitive businessman, whom the United States has always insisted was harboured by Kenya, has businesses registered in Kenya and even at one time was given protection as a captain in the Kenyan army and a high security value asylum seeker.
The documentary also uncovered shocking new details about the mysterious death of Michael Munuhe, an informer whose body was found in Nairobi suburb of Karen in on January 13, 2003.
In the documentary, the deceased’s brother, Josephat Mureithi Gichuki, is convinced that Munuhe was murdered because he was about to reveal Kabuga’s whereabouts to the US security agency, FBI.
In a similar development, Michael Sarunei, a Kenyan soldier who is alleged to have been in charge of Kabuga’s security has gone missing and according to a story published in Nation newspaper, it is suspected that he was murdered.
The NTV documentary, by John-Allan Namu, an investigative journalist details out how several people who tried to close in ono Kabuga have either disappeared or been murdered.
During his investigations, Namu discovered that Kabuga, who is diabetic, is currently trying to sell off his business so that he can fly out of the country for treatment.
NTV’s investigations led it to some of Kabuga’s intermediaries. One of NTV’s operatives was to be picked from Nyali Golf Club in Mombasa by silver Toyota Harrier with a Tanzanian licence plate to meet two men who are from Rwanda.
They were to be taken to a house that Kabuga allegedly stayed in while in Mombasa. NTV was not able to continue with its quest to meet Kabuga as the deal was terminated for fear that it was becoming very risky for the journalist.
As it was revealed, NTV’s contact said in a text message to the journalist that Kenyan intelligence agency had gotten wind of the impending investigative documentary.
