Dr Oburu Oginga sensationally claimed Uhuru gang – East Africa Presidents – are planning to kill ODM leader Raila Amollo Odinga. State House has denied.
â€œI have received information from a very credible source that some powerful individuals within the East African Community want Raila Odinga dead,â€ said Dr Oginga.
In swift rejoinder, Manoah Esipisu, the State House spokesman, termed Dr Oginga’s allegations as Â â€œcheap, unfounded and demeaning to the integrity and the agenda of EAC leadersâ€.
According to Oburu, the three East Africa musketeers plus embattled South Sudant junta leader Salva Kiir plotted to kill Raila once he returns from the USA where he is currently on a program at the African Presidential Centre, Boston University.
The heinous plot was discussed last week in a meeting at Safari Park Hotel, Nairobi.
â€œSome of the Presidents of the EAC countries have a personal agenda in the region which they fear canâ€™t be achieved with the ODM leader aroundâ€ Oburu said.
The Safari Park Â meeting was supposedly to launch the Kenya National Electronic Single Window System, but apparently veered off tangent to discuss how to eliminate East Africa’s most enigmatic politician. In attendance Â were Presidents Uhuru Kenyatta (Kenya), Yoweri Museveni (Uganda), Paul Kagame (Rwanda) and Salva Kiir Mayardit (South Sudan).
Dismissing the claim, Mr Esipisu told Dr Oginga to channel his energies elsewhere.
â€œWe wish to dismiss the malicious, ungrounded and unfounded allegations with the contempt they deserve. The Heads of States from the East African Community have a noble agenda of serving their citizens and are not ready to be distracted by the cheap words of Oburu,â€ he said.
