The meeting that ICC judges are convinced President Kibaki, Mr Uhuru Kenyatta and Mr Francis Muthaura had with Mungiki members at State House is shocking. I am tempted to believe my President can never do that, and trust his word the judges, like those sinners who crucified Jesus, chose to believe false witnesses.
I also do not imagine any rational leader would meet Mungiki knowing what happened after it was reported that during the Kanu days, they were darlings of the State.
But of course when retired President Moi met Munguki, it was something between a youth wing, political hirelings and handouts seekers. It had not bloodied its hands with brutal killings and extortions.
They also came to him in the hands of Mr Kihika Kimani, whose judgment in his last years was impaired. In one of the political rallies in Laikipia I Iistened as he assured Moi the people of Laikipia West had vowed they would never let Mr G.G. Kariuki anywhere near Parliament, even if just to relieve himself in its toilets.
Sadly for African culture, G.G was in the dais with his wife and a young man who seemed to be his son.
That is the guy who was the bridge between Kanuâs top command and the youth group that was slowly metamorphosing into a killer ring.
I am sure this did not escape Kibakiâs attention, who was then the icon of the brave and unbendable opposition in Kenya, the one that could not accept offers of beach plots, huge bank loans, bribes with briefcases stuffed with money, and enticements such as ministerial appointments to defect to Kanu. Kibaki just does not seem like the guy who can sit with people who puff tobacco, but then if you do not change politics, it changes you, and that is why today there is so much Kanu in the way Kibaki does things.
So again, you never know, it could have happened under the frustration to get a second term, because Moi and Kenyatta had many, so why would he walk away with one.
So here we are reading the 193-page judgment given by Justice Ekaterina Trendafilova on Monday, and grappling with the graphic account of how the meeting started on November 26, 2007.
