A computer geek, said to be an ex-NSIS agent who revealed how IEBC and TNA shared 2013 elections data on Kencall to the disadvantage of CORD is missing.
Kenya Today has been informed that police raided the man’s home in Jamhuri Estate here in Nairobi on Sunday and made away with several electronic items, also arresting him. However, the family’s frantic searches to several police stations in Nairobi has bore no fruit as the man was not booked in any of them.
The man, identified as Calvin Ogallo,Â made the shocking revelations which formed part Â of the 900-paged rejected affidavit of CORD’s petition at the Supreme Court which was later dismissed for lack of evidence. He was believed to have been booked at Â at Kileleshwa Police Station but his lawyers Haroun Ndubi and ODM lawyer Anthony Oluoch have not been able to make contact with him.
The duo, together with the head of the CORD secretariat lawyer Norman Magaya (the man who replaced Eliud Owalo) want the police to give them access to the man who has not been charged in any court of law since arrest.
It is still unclear how he was picked but sources point an accusing finger at the Standard Group, owners of KTN’s show Jicho Pevu as having revealed his identity.
His expose, which was set to run on the Jicho Pevu show, was among sensitive other shocking details edited out ostensibly not to embarrass the Jubilee government.
While both Mohammed Ali and Namu denies ever revealing his name, a source privy to these freaking round-ups of those (in government) who may have talked to Ali and Namu is convinced either the two journalists gave away their source (something outrageous to even imagine) or senior editors at the media house (Standard Group) revealed Ogallo’s name.
“It is sad how they (KTN) just sold this guy out. He did this under very particular terms the he remain anonymous. They screwed him up. We are so fearing for his life now,” a friend of Calvin told this writer.
Attempts to have the Standard Group follow up this case has also not bore fruit despite several journalists and reporters being aware of the goings-on.
