Speculated is rife that Michael Gichangi did not resign as people are hoodwinked to believe. The outgoing state chief spy was sacked after telling the president that Raila Odinga’s push for a referendum was likely triumph with more than 75% of the total votes.
As the head of Intelligence Service, Gichangi enjoyed unchallenged access to critical security information since he doubled the custodian of top government secrets.
The NIS is a highly professional body which encompasses top notched intelligence experts and it is among the best intelligence institutes in the world. Most of the NIS sleuths are highly trained in Israel by the MOSAD, in USA by the CIA and in Britain by the MI5 and MI6.
The NIS agents are located in all divisions across the country. They tap raw in information and sends to Nairobi where trend analysis is done. The final report is prepared and dispatched to other security agencies.
The latest intelligence report that has been released by NIS is the survey on the proposed referendum by CORD leader Raila Odinga. It is also believed that the NIS experts have readily projected that the referendum will sail through with a minimum of 75% approval by Kenyans, including those from Central Kenya.
NIS had previously warned against the ill treatment of CORD principal Raila Odinga by the state. The maltreatment of ODM leader includes when the government denied him access to VIP lounge in JKIA, the unlawful withdrawal of his security details, regionally skewed appointments and the emerging of corruption in government.
President Uhuruâ€™s popularity ratings have hit lowest ever for a sitting president even in his own backyard of Gatundu where residents are accusing him of installing an MP on them.
Gishangi will be remembered for the crucial but dirty role he played during the Kibaki Tena campaign that led to the disputed swearing in of former President Mwai Kibaki for a second term.
Gichangi is also said to have been behind the dark forces that wanted Musalia Mudavadi, a non Kikuyu, to replace Uhuru as a presidential candidate.
