Mutahi Ngunyi explains why Obado is being targeted

Mutahi Ngunyi's take on Obado troubles

Why William Ruto will lose against Raila Odinga in 2022 – Mutahi Ngunyi explains

Ngunyi stated that in his opinion, Obado was being pursued over his political friendship with Deputy President William Ruto.

He also questioned why the EACC, a civilian organization, was involved in Obado’s gun possession yet they were not mandated to deal with criminal matters.

“I do not understand why EACC is investigating Obado's guns. This is not part of their mandate. It is abuse of office. Obado is targeted because of Ruto. Or is he?"

Ngunyi’s concern came even as exiled Kenyan lawyer Miguna Miguna read mischief in the EACC gun search in Obado’s homes.

“I understand that Migori Governor Okoth Obado has been arrested by the @EACCKenya at a Nairobi hotel for guns purportedly found at his "homes" in Migori & Nairobi. How was he in POSSESSION of guns when he wasn't at home? When and how did the @EACCKenya get JURISDICTION over guns?” Miguna tweeted on Wednesday evening.

The Canada-based activist further made reference to a 2017 incidence when guns were found in houses associated with NASA financier Jimi Wanjigi.

“Didn't they also claim to have found "sophisticated" guns including the M4 military automatic weapon at Jimmy Wanjigi's homes in Malindi and Nairobi? What happened to that one? Kenyans are not that stupid! #SayNoToUjinga,” Miguna stated.
