“Everything was well planned to appear like suicide. Sending money to his family, leaving behind a suicide note and so forth but it’s a clear case of murder.” a detective revealed to the Nation.

Evidence also shows that the suicide note collected from Kenei’s house on the day he was murdered did not bear his handwriting.

According to detectives, there are enough pieces of evidence to conclude that the late officer Kenei was murdered and suicide was stage-managed.

City Lawyer Invites Kenyans To Pray For End Of Uhuru's Presidency At Uhuru Park

Nairobi lawyer and human rights activist, Njonjo Mue, announced a prayer meeting on February 26th to ask God to end the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Urging Kenyans to show up in huge numbers on his announcement on social media, Mue wrote:

Lawyer and human rights activist, Njonjo Mue, announced a prayer meeting on February 26th to ask God to end the leadership of President Uhuru.

“Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta and the government he leads have become an existential threat to our country, to our children and to our children’s children. We have known this for a long time. When he sponsored the killing of innocents and the raping of women in 2007 – 8, we took him to the highest court in the world, but he bought his way out of having to give an account for his crimes.

When he stole the elections, we took him to the highest court in our land, but he threatened the judges and they caved in.”

“Uhuru Kenyatta has power and he has money. He is above our laws and above our courts. But there is one Court where our voice is heard and our evidence cannot be destroyed. It is the Court of Heaven.

And it is to that Court that we are now taking him. For and on behalf of the people of Kenya, I invite you to a prayer meeting on THURSDAY, 27th FEBRUARY 2020, from 1.00 – 2.00 p.m. at Uhuru Park on the Presidential Dias.

During that hour of prayer, we shall lay our charges against Uhuru Kenyatta and his government before God. And we shall ask God to remove Uhuru Kenyatta and his government from power. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there in the midst of them.”

However, in an unexpected turn of events, Mue was forced to hold his prayer meeting at Uhuru Park all alone as his call went unheeded and only he and just a few of journalists showed up at the venue.

After silently praying for more than 10 minutes, The Oxford University graduate stood up, a copy of the Constitution in his hands and then proceeded to read the oath Uhuru took when he was sworn into office after winning the 2017 presidential election. According to Mue, the president has failed to honor the oath he took to Kenyans before God.
