“We managed to buy almost all opposition leaders. Shikuku, Kijana Wamalwa, all senior ones. We were even paying for Wamalwa’s house…we moved him to a better house & he could feed us with info at night on what the opposition were planning. The ONLY person we couldn’t buy was Raila Odinga…he was a bit cunning. But we did his father.” – Micah Kigen former YK’92 Operative on NTV.
This is how top pundits reacted to Micah Kigen’s revelations on NTV’s #SonsOfFortune:
Nzau and Musau>>BREAKING: YK92 Kanu operative Micah Kigen reveals, for the first time, that former VP and Ford Kenya supremo Michael Wamalwa was the official Kanu mole inside the original FORD, that they even moved him to a better house n received briefings from him at night. This one is official. Francis Owakah, kumbe wana Mulembe Consciousness walianza u-mole concept kitambo. Shikuku alikuwa anakamata ugali State House daily… #SonsOfFortune
Philip Etale :>>> Last night while in the village, I tuned into NTV and bumped into my Junior Informed Friend Enock Sikolia Zicky on the #SonsOfFurtune segment. I watched and listened through the narration and the responses by the former YK92 men. What caught my attention was when one of the lobby group’s boys said that during their propaganda war against opposition, they managed to either convince or buy off some opposition leaders. However, the only one man whom they couldn’t convince otherwise was Raila Amolo Odinga. He stayed firm and focused just like he is today. Money was poured by Nyayo through the YK92 to silence the opposition and break the strong opposition, but they could not reach Raila. He refused to be compromised nor be bought into silence. This is the man Kenya needs.
By Hon J B : Just when I thought we’ve heard enough, another ex-YK92 cadre spilled the beans on their operations in the days running to 1992 multiparty elections.
Noteworthy is his revelations that they “purchased” all opposition figures except Hon. Raila Odinga whom he described as “elusive and incorruptible”.
His take on the late Wamalwa Kijana, former VP in Narc regime and Ford Kenya honcho whom he disclosed was on their payroll is rather shocking.
That Wamalwa accepted a house from government as a token to betray the opposition then, by leaking intelligence to Moi regime, has left me, and many gobsmacked.
With this new evidence, the question on why Agwambo ferociously wrestled Wamalwa in Ford Kenya, and even later abandoning him for LDP is effectively settled.
One trait of Raila Odinga I’ve come to learn over the years is his strong dislike for turncoats. He’ll discard you immediately you become one.
May be that’s why when he discovered that William Ruto had not discarded his YK92 traits, he was reluctant to defend him against ODM kitchen cabinet.
Perhaps we’re yet to heat more.
