Details emerge of what happened before Author of Raila Conspiracy disappeared

Family speaks

Speaking to journalists, the father of Ochieng, Mr. Dalmas Ong'ele, divulged unknown details that transpired before his son's disappearance on the fateful day last month.

Mr Ong'ele stated that his son had invited him to the launch that was to be graced by NASA presidential aspirant Raila Odinga, Kenya School of Law CEO PLO Lumumba, political analysts Barrack Muluka and Herman Manyora but he declined to travel to Nairobi.

"My son had requested me to travel to Nairobi to witness the launch but I declined because of the funeral we have back here at home.

"He promised to travel after the launch but to date, we are yet to hear from him,” Mr. Ong'ele was quoted by the Nation.

He disclosed that he spoke to his Babior two days before the launch but since then he had not heard from him, a peculiar behavior as he (Babior) phones the family frequently.

"He calls us frequently and we have been suspicious over his continued silence since June 25. It is unfortunate that his cell phone has also remained off since that date,” he mentioned.

Ong'ele added that his son had authored another book highlighting that: "He had high IQ (Intelligent Quotient) to author books".

He further noted that his son was interested in politics from a young age and even "nicknamed Babior after Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A) leader Dr. John Garang de Mabior.”

The family has pleaded with the police to find their son.

In his Raila Conspiracy book which has since been termed controversial, Babior mentions that the 2002 General Election, in which then President Mwai Kibaki was contesting against Uhuru Kenyatta, now President, was the only free and fair election ever held in Kenya.

He also cautions that the statements made earlier by ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru that Al-Shabaab can interfere with the digital system of elections were a disclosure that there were plans to rig the August 8 General Election.

Speculations are rife that his disappearance could have been politically instigated.
