President Uhuru Kenyatta is likely to run into fresh trouble immediately he lands in London for a three-day state visit to the United Kingdom. According to sources based in London, environmental lobbyists plan “massive protests” near Heathrow airport soon after the president’s plane touches down.
The protests are over the failure by the Kenyan government to find and arrest the killers of conservationist Joannah Stutchbury, more than two weeks since she was murdered at her Kiambu forest home. President Uhuru condemned the killing as “senseless” and vowed to find the killers and punish them severely but no arrests have been made so far.
Conservationist Joanahh’s murder case has degenerated into a ”cold trail” like that of the US-born Ivory investigator Bradley Robbins who was found murdered in his Karen home near Nairobi in 2018
According to officials of the Alliance For A Clean Environment, investigations into Joanahh’s murder case has degenerated into a ”cold trail” like that of the US-born Ivory investigator Bradley Robbins who was found murdered in his Karen home near Nairobi in 2018. Robbin’s neck bore deep knife wounds when his wife also a conservationist found him on arriving home from work.
The lobbyists blame the Kenyatta government security organs for embarking on a “cover-up” instead of arresting and charging top key figures viewed as “untouchable” They claim the slain conservationist had widely circulated photos of her alleged killers who were after the green Kiambu forest land she protected from encroachers for decades.
The London demo planners are keen to impress on the Kenyan leader the need to find and charge the killers in court. They further wonder why the said “senior” Kiambu politician who was allegedly involved in the murder has not been arrested and charged. The slain 67-year-old environmental conservationist was greatly respected for her unrelenting crusade to preserve the vast Kiambu forest where she built her home.
