Did the police do it?

As the inquest continues in Kenya, recent testimony pointed to the likelihood that Fr. John Kaiser was murdered by four members of the Kenyan police -- at the direction of former President Daniel arap Moi and Member of Parliament Nicholas Biwott and former Cabinet minister Julius Sunkuli.

Their motive? John was planning to testify at the Hague about the ethnic cleansing done under the direction of the former president and his cabinet. This information had been submitted during testimony in the Akiwumi Commission in Kenya regarding land clashes -- a commission that has never released its report.

It may take some digging, but check the Daily Nation website link as well as the East Standard link for past and present articles regarding the ongoing inquest.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any information, remembrances, thoughts, pictures, letters, or whatever regarding John. I'd be glad to post them!
