Why the government is upset with Mutahi Ngunyi’s Nkaissery video

A video on YouTube by renowned political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has not been well received by the government which has asked internet firm Google to take down the offensive content.

In the video posted on the political analyst’s YouTube channel, The Fifth Estate, Ngunyi speculates on the cause of the sudden death of Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery.

The video, which has more than 200,000 views, Ngunyi also poses the question, “Did Nkaissery really die or did they force him to die?”

He then says: “In my view, Nkaiserry was assassinated.”

This is contrary to the results of a postmortem which conducted on Monday and revealed that Maj Gen (Rtd) Nkaissery died of a heart attack.

The video is the latest of Ngunyi’s theories on the possible cause of death of the former cabinet secretary.

On July 8, when news of Nkaissery’s broke, Ngunyi questioned the timing of the cabinet secretary’s death terming it as an assassination.

Nkaissery was due to be laid to rest at his home in Kajiado on Saturday in a ceremony attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta and other top government and political leaders.
