Political scientist Mutahi Ngunyi has claimed that the sudden death of Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery does not add up.
The CS died on Saturday morning, hours after going to Karen Hospital for a check up.
On Friday, he appeared fine when he accompanied President Uhuru Kenyatta to Uhuru Park grounds for prayer over the general election. He later held a number of meetings at his office.
Mr Ngunyi is now claiming that some unnamed people may have a hand in the sudden passing away of the retired major general.
“Death of Nkaissery DOES NOT ADD UP. Security Ministers DO NOT DIE 30 days to ELECTION. They are NOT ALLOWED to DIE. It is an Assassination,” Ngunyi tweeted on Saturday.
The cause of death has not been revealed.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has today morning appointed Education Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiangi to replace the late Nkaissery as Interior CS in an acting capacity.
