The former leader of the outlawed Mungiki sect Maina Njenga is not taking chances with his security detail following an attempt on his life in which four other people in his company were killed.
Njenga who is adamant that the attempt on his life was orchestrated by forces within government through the police, arrived at the press conference organised by Cord with a security detail of over 10 bodyguards. The bodyguards were dressed in navy blue suits, with pink shirts and blue neck ties.
Njenga escaped death by a whisker after the car he was travelling in was sprayed with bullets near AHITI Institute, around five kilometers from Nyahururu town along Nyahururu-Nairobi road. The attack on Njenga left his lover and four others dead.
Cord leader Raila Odinga and other leaders from the alliance while on a visit to Njenga at his Karen home, condemned the attack on Njenga and blamed the government for security lapses. “We have a government blaming foreign nations for issuing travel advisories when it is clear we cannot protect our citizens.” Raila said.
