By John Kamau, editor, thingira.org
Details are emerging that chief of staff at Deputy President William Ruto’s Harambee Annex offices Ken Osinde was murdered on instructions of Ruto to conceal crucial information regarding the killing of Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei, Thingira.org can now reveal.
The first to reveal Osinde was killed by Ruto hired assassins was Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i.
Dr Matiang’i by virtue of his office receives intelligence briefs daily and hence his words are truthful.
While expressing shock over the demise of Osinde, the CS noted that the deceased was his close friend and a contemporary in academia and public service.
Dr Matiang’i made it clear that for the duration he has known Osinde the deceased had never exhibited sickness or ill healt.
He revealed that Osinde’s life was a portrait of robust health and hence was shocked by the sudden death.
His mysterious death came a few months after Ruto brutally murdered Sgt Kenei and blamed the Deep State after executing his mission.
Osinde, who was the Chief of Staff in the office of the Deputy President was the only staff member who was akin to the happenings when former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa brought in the Polish arm dealers who would later be conned to the tune of billions.
Osinde was the person in charge of the CCTV footage that Ruto had declined to submit to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCL).
However, after the footage was submitted, Osinde was the first one to note that some crucial parts of the footage were missing.
Sources at Harambee Annex revealed that Osinde, a Kisii, was viewed with suspicion as he held so much secrets such that Deputy President would be advised to bar him from representing him during the just concluded Annual Governors Conference.
Osinde is believed to have sensitive information about Sergeant Kenei's murder and he was at the verge of releasing the information to the police when Ruto got to know and hence ordered his elimination.
Before he was murdered, Osidne was contemplating handing over his resignation letter.
According to co-workers, Osinde seemed disturbed and kept to himself.
His coworkers revealed that Osinde would have been a vital lead in unmasking the murder of Sergeant Kenei and that is why he was murdered to ensure the information did not leak.
“Ken was stressed in the past few months but we did not understand what the problem was,” said one of his colleagues.
Osinde started working at Harambee Annex in 2016 as the Chief of Staff where he acted as a mediator of issues before they reached the DP.
He had been a long-serving lecturer at the University of Nairobi where he pioneered research and published on Sheng’ and youth languages.
He also worked as a manager at the National Bank of Kenya where he rose to the position of Head of Strategic Planning.
