Am still sad and shocked after what happened to our two leaders and security ministers, Prof George Saitoti and Hon. Orwa Ojode together with other 4 Kenyans. Many of us did not remember that on the same day (10th June) 4 years ago, other Kenyans including Minister Kipkalya Kones and MP Lorna Laboso died in chopper crash. What a terrible coincidence and this is the 4th crash killing Senior Government officials since President Moi left power to President Kibaki. What is going on??? Is it because they like traveling by air compared to the days of Moi when most leaders used road transport? Others who perished included Pilots Luke Oyugi and Nancy Gituanja together with two bodyguards Joshua Tonkei and Thomas Murimi. I say pole sana to the families.
Lately we have had many tragedies, blasts, terrible road accidents, buildings collapsing on Saturday a storey building collapsed in Mlolongo and we expected more news yesterday only to get worse news. Many Kenyans are really saddened by the death of these two politicians, as much as they have been attacked as Security chiefs for not doing enough especially in the cases of blasts suspected to be from Al-shabaab, they have not been in bad books of Kenyans like some politicians.
It is very sad that many Kenyans will forget very fast, just like we forgot other leaders and Kenyans who perished in other similar plane crash like Bonaya Godana and others. Then four years later, probably the same day 10th June 2016 other Government officials will board a chopper and get crashed (I hope not). We will say like we are used to that when the time of death comes no one can stop it, its true only God has the secret to death but this does not allow Kenyans to take this lightly. It is only God who knows if this was an accident or planned. If it was a plan let God’s wrath be upon those involved.
