COURTESY OF Mwalimu Dida Sunday night, KTN aired Mohammed Ali's latest investigative series Jicho Pevu. This time with the title 'Ghururi Ya Saitoti'. The English version, 'Death in 10 minutes' was done by investigative reporter John Allan Namu. The two journalists looked into the circumstances that led to the death of Prof. Saitoti, his assistant Orwa Ojode, their bodyguards and two pilots. The pair tried to prove that Saitoti's 'accident' was an indeed an assassination. Mohammed Ali started by revealing his trials and tribulations after his last exposé. He narrated how a special police force code name 'EAGLE 1' was formed to neutralize specific journalists. Leading this exercise were three officers; Maina, Muthee and Kariuki. Mohammed Ali was to be killed along Waiyaki Way, near the Museum Hill Interchange. Dennis Onsarigo, his colleague was to be terminated as he headed home. To support his claims, Moha played a clip of the then Makadara MP Mike Sonko addressing residents of Likoni in May last year. S ...
The modern writers prize commerce at the expense of the truth. I have spent most part of my long holiday reading about the Luo Nation but most contemporary writers deliberately avoid the truth in order to increase sales. This intellectual dishonesty is contemptous of academic obedience. The truth is that Luo Nyanza has had these leaders: 1. Tom Mboya - the Man Kenya wants to forget; 2. Ezekiah Oyugi Ogango - the Man no one cares to write about; 3. Jaramogi Oginga Odinga - the Father of many orphans; 4. Orwa Ojode (Sirkal) - the Struggle for Luo Nyanza economic emancipation; 5. Owino Likowa (Wuod Akoth) - Helping the people to rise economically through bank facilities; 6. Cyprian Awiti (Jamawego) - Generosity personified. And the few others who are making a change in the smallest way they can. The rest are politicians!!
Moses Wetangula escaped unhurt when his car was yesterday shot at as he was driving home. These are just attempts by the government to silence the opposition after Wetangula revealed a ksh. 500Bn scandal in the railway tender. We are not going to let you continue taking our lives. You killed George Saitoti, Orwa Ojode, Mutula Kilonzo and now it seems you are after one of us. Enough is enough.
If you had an opportunity to bring back one of these politician to life, whom would you!? Jomo Kenyatta. Jaramogi Odinga. Tom Mboya. JM Kariuki Gama Pinto. Robert Ouko. Michael Wamalwa. George Saitoti. Orwa Ojode. Argwings Kodhek. Ezekiel Barng'etuny. Mulu Mutisya. Uhuru Kenyatta. Martin Shikuku. Mutula Kilonzo. Ronald Ngala.
Not that I want to imply anything, Professor George Saitoti, Orwa Ojode and others died while on their way to a harambee in Nyanza.
George Saitoti and Orwa Ojode used to be busiest minister and assistant minister respectively.May be Joseph Ole Lenku is still enjoying the delicacy of the security matter in the country.

But if we could h'v people like Ole Lenku going a head of us we could nt admire to go where he is cause we could predict what could be going on.

Hon. Chelagat Mutai: A Story Of Integrity And Dignity That Shames MP William Ruto - Kenya Today * By Dikembe Disembe I refused to mourn Mutula Kilonzo. I was saddened when George Saitoti and Orwa Ojode died in a plane crash; because no death can be so brutal like one where you stare haplessly and helplessly. Because I have an opportunity to be on a plane, the heavens can be scary, but I digress. Chelagat Mutai is dead. She is dead without much social fun-fare, the usual media hullabaloo; or, our famed bipartisan respects for the political dead. Here is a woman whose death is so distant to my generation and our apathy to history. In Marjorie Oludhe Macgoye’s Coming to Birth, the name Chelagat props up in a conversation at the M’s family where a ‘general factotum’ called Paulina feels its important for women to collect themselves and ‘riot’ over the incarceration of this ‘little kalenjin girl’, accused of inciting his constituents to forcefully invade some land grabbed at Ziwa. This is 1976; ...

How you came about your death is beyond our understanding.You left us too soon we need you to help change the rotten roots on which the country stands,with dying hope,Kenyans worried on where we are heading. As you join our departed ones,to our memory backs the matyres who cruelly disappeared.Prof George Saitoti,Dr.Orwa Ojode,Joseph Tom Mboya,J M Kariuki,Pio Pinto Gama,Robert Ouko,(Kenneth Matiba),Dedan Kimathi and more worth mentioning. We got the new Constitution,you fought for free and elections but we got disappointed.You died with a secret in your heart you were just to deliver.Kenya is a nation monopolised by evil possesed minds.What we go through will be a history,as you are now.we remain to continue the fight. Your family will never be the same again.We are happy you have a grandson to put on your shoe,a strong MAN.
I still cant get over Mutahi Ngunyi's 'Orwa Ojode was just collateral damage.'
June 10 2012: George Saitoti and Orwa Ojode died of another plane crash.
Reason why I really followed activities of Hon Joshua Orwa Ojode - he was the Chairman of Bunge SACCO
Orwa Ojode,a father,a son and a husband to someone was just collateral damage...SAD
All has revealed is that Orwa ojode loved Jameson and he used to rave with a taxi
Hon. Orwa Ojode was a cool dude though. He never argued sheepishly in Parliament.
Ojode was collateral damage "But jus think about it.Orwa n Saitoti were not at the same side politically"
All I heard was that orwa ojode was a jameson guy.
RIP proffesor George Saitoti and Orwa ojode!neva shall we forget u our heroes!justice shall surely be done amen!

When this matter came up, Orwa Ojode claimed "Hon Waititu was handled with the dignity and respect befitting his status" LMFAOOO.
I remember I could watch parliament proceedings whenever Orwa Ojode was being put on the spot to answer questions cuz he was always FUNNY
One day, Some day all tis is gonna end RI.P Hon. George Saitoti n Orwa Ojode
Orwa Ojode was my *** Saitoti was my childhood role model when I thought I'd make it to be a professor of Mathematics. I respected him.

Bring Zack Home. A less informed view would say the Saitotis by all means were a loving family and have raised him as well as his biological parents would have; and that the Subukia’s should celebrate their birth son’s good fortune. But God has a way of supervising our deeds, good and bad. The alleged kidnap of Mr Zachary Musengi, raised for 25 years as former Vice President George Saitoti’s son. If you travel regularly in Kenya the rumor on the street is that the death of Mr Saitoti and his colleague Joshua Orwa Ojode in a chopper crash was not a ‘blameless’ accident. So far, the Judicial Commission of Inquiry headed by a court of appeal justice has not landed on the smoking gun but has poked holes in the ‘blameless’ accident theory. Mr. Saitoti and Mr. Orwa Ojode shared a familial detail. Both of them had an adopted son. Both highly successful and over-achieving individuals adopted a child to raise in their homes. Childbearing is almost treated as God-given in african culture. Some subject ...

...The helicopter crash that led to the deaths of Internal Security Minister Prof. George Saitoti, his assistant Orwa Ojode, and "Four other people." Aren't the names of the four known? When will the common mwananchi be recognized, especially the Police?
A pathologist who examined the bodies of former Internal Security Minister George Saitoti and his deputy Orwa Ojode a day after the crash has said the deaths may have occurred before the aircraft came down. Dr Dorothy Njeru on Tuesday told the Justice Kalpana Rawal commission investigating the accident that the ministers may have died from inhaling a poisonous gas before the helicopter crashed. Autopsies on the six victims of the June 10 mishap, the commission was told, revealed “cherry pink” patches on their bodies, indicating that high levels of carbon monoxide were inhaled and the crash may not have been “a normal aviation accident.” Dr Njeru said she made the observations of the tell-tale signs of poisoning while a colleague documented her dictation. “However, omissions were made in the final report on the cherry pink discolouration I noticed during the post-mortem.” She said the post-mortem examination was done at the Lee Funeral Home in Nairobi at the request of the CID. “I pointed out ...

Death is bad, pro. Saitoti and Orwa ojode should be alive 2 celebrate the cupture of kisimayu.

Details are now emerging that the aircraft technician who was in-charge of pre-flight procedures at the Wilson airport before the fatal helicopter crash that killed Professor George Saitoti and his assistant Orwa Ojode, was not well trained, and was not licensed by the Kenya Civil Authority.

Do u agree with the news media that the gvment was behind the death of the late Internal Security Minister George Saitoti n his assis Orwa Ojode?.
The aftermath!!! The two perished on the same day, from the same cause of death and under similar circurmstances. I will not blame it on the tribe for I ceased being a tribalist. Maybe the cognitive development! The family of the Late George Saitoti is busy hiring foreign experts all in the aim of seeking to unravel the mystery behind the demise of their loved one. They are busy engaging the goverment from all fronts and are well presented in the probe commission. On the other hand, the family of cousing Orwa Ojode 'seems' not to know the ongoing probe involves their loved one, said differently, they are not even aware where the commission is holding its hearings from. I can hear echos from that side of the lake saying "BADO MAPAMBANO!!! MAPAMBANO! MAPAMBANOOO!!! I conclude by admiting that - It helps to style up!!!

RIP: Orwa Ojode, our member of Parliament, and George Saitoti, Minister of Internal Affairs, both killed in a helicoptter crash. Joylet, a 14 year old orphan in our Kisumu program, who bravely fought the HIV virus but died suddenly. A bright girl, she was much loved by all. My dog, Jupie, who died as the result of unintentional malpractice on the part of a vet-if I say anymore I'll cry. He is greatly missed. GOOD NEWS- Next week our nursery school should begin to be constructed! -Last week we had a leadership meeting of all four churches of Hope- the latest one was "adopted" since they already existed but wanted to be a sister church. There were 22 people, which was wonderful! Lunch was rice, chicken, ugali, and collared greens, plus sodas! When I last met Chief Makoteng, head of the Kadhola Hope Church, he told me that Luo tradition called for a chief to have 5 wives and 20 children. He had 2 wives but one ran away. I don't blame her! I wouldn't want to be expected to have 8 children, !I'd run ...
Kenyans Ministers of Internal Security Prof George Saitoti and Orwa Ojode are victims of Americans and British intelligence services ,sources are revealing that these two Kenyan leaders were killed due to their refusal to allow our airports ,ports and country to be used for criminal activities by these Countries ,Kenya government should come clean and Tell kenyans the truth ,Aircraft flying Saitoti and Ojode was planted with explosives the night before at the Wilson airport police Hangar by Foreign intelligence services from the US and UK.
Investigating the cause of the death of late George Saitoti,Orwa Ojode and others on 10th june 2012 is just but a license to eat the taxpayer's money,I mean many deaths of the same nature hv bn subjectd to severe investigations but no concrete outcome has bn seen,u cn even predict dat at the end of it,the undersigned team wil blame bad weather as the cause of the tragedy!

A lot of were made by our leaders during the laying to rest of our two departed heroes Proff. George Saitoti and Orwa Ojode. This is not the first time we have been treated to this kind of rhetoric. we hope this time round they mean business. And in Gods name i beg to ask. If Saitoti was such a good leader as exemplified by his colleagues, why the *** had 13 of his colleagues opposed his presidential bid?
It's true there comes a time that an individual is not important. RIP Prof. George Saitoti, Joshua Orwa Ojode (in your graves), & the four Police officers yet to be burried.
I didn't see DPM Uhuru Kenyatta at Orwa Ojode's Funeral in Ndhiwa.just wondering.all said and done, May the Almighty rest Saitoti and Ojode's souls in Eternal Peace, Amen.

Mzee Kibaki advised politicians not to just speak mere words without actions during the burial of prof. George Saitoti and Orwa Ojode. 'All these words u ave spoken here am used up to them and if implement they can yield the Kenya we have thought of'
May God give strenth to the families of George Saitoti amd Orwa Ojode during ths time of Morning God be wth u
how many of you think of where they will be after they die? how many of you are planning for tomorrow when they even dont know whether they will be alive? why are you so boastful and contended with the kind of life you live when all you do does not involve Jesus? Think my dear brother and sister and pray always for the time is nigh. Prof George Saitoti and Orwa Ojode woke up early morning going to church but they were called while on the way. how ready are you?
Orwa Ojode & George Saitoti worked seemlessly. Diff tribes & parties yet we never saw any backstabbing. That's the Kenya we want.
The two Deputy Premiers,Uhuru Kenyatta and Musalia Mudavadi, conspicuously absent at the burial of Hon. Orwa Ojode.
SAD BUT TRUE: If George Saitoti and Orwa Ojode (and those oh so insignificant "four others") had died in a road crash, the accident would have probably resulted in some positive reforms beneficial to the country. As things stand however, its another stark reminder of the giant gaps between the privileged class and the rest of us poor "others" whose deaths go unmarked every day on public highways. Well, death has never been a great respecter of privilege...
The year was 1999 and one Orwa Ojode was in a serious dilemma. His long time friend Prof. George Saitoti was facing a vote of no confidence motion in parliament moved by his fellow National Development Party MP Otieno Kajwang. Alongside my colleague Peter Leftie, Ojode summoned us to a meeting to help him out of the quagmire. After one hour of chatting we reached a simple solution- Ojode took the next available Kenya Airways flight to Kisumu and called everybody to inform them of the urgent matter he had to attend to. That way Saitoti took no offence. Ditto the hawkish NDP MPs. RIP Sirkal
I watched on my screen the proceedings at the Nairobi central SDA church during the requem mass in honor of marehemu Orwa Ojode and most of the speakers, including the church leader, started their speeches with " His excellence the president, right honourable prime minister, ministers, members of parliament, ladies and gentlemen, we are gathered here in honour of Prof George Saitoti, Honourable Orwa Ojode and the 'OTHER FOUR' who died on sunday. Why the 'other 4' and not mentioning their names like they did to prof. and Orwa? biasness. what do you think?
President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga Thursday led hundreds of Kenyans in a memorial service for the late Internal Security assistant minister Orwa Ojode.

The late Internal Security Minister George Saitoti will be buried on Saturday and his deputy Orwa Ojode on Sunday.
George Muthengi Kinuthia Saitoti! Lessons from the Past – When will Kenyans learn. Hard and painful thoughts cross our minds today. In one sense We mourn all the Kenyans who perished today in the Chopper crash. 1. Captain Nancy Gituanja 2. Captain Luke Oyugi 3. Inspector Joshua Tonkei 4. Sergeant Thomas Murimi 5. Orwa Ojode 6. George Saitoti Today. It is with great difficulty that we mourn George Saitoti as a hero (according to Kenyan mass media); because a hero, he was not. The truth in Kenya is that we forget, and we forget quickly. It was Prof. George Saitoti of the University of Nairobi Mathematics Department, who drove his VW Beetle (a well documented fact) into the Treasury Building parking lot when Daniel Arap Moi first appointed him Minister for Finance. Prof. Saitoti never looked backed, abandoning his VW Beetle motorcar for a Mercedes Benz and when he became Vice-President took on his motorcade as his chosen mode of travel. The VW Beetle motorcar was to rust in the car park— abandoned and d ...

Let's join together in consoling the grieved families of The Internal Security Minister, Hon. George Saitoti and his assistant, Hon. Orwa Ojode among the two pilots and security details. Though I don't always prefer talking about the dead, I hereby have to admit that Hon. Ojode was a role mode patriot to me because he never based his development activities on ethnic scope or political parties' loyalty's. He captured the high rank in terms of development, public relations with the common wanainchi and basically employment opportunities to those in need. The same to his counter part though I may not say much. Ojode rest in peace... sirikal.
On 8th – 9th June 2012, I was in Mombasa for the National Forum for Peaceful Election. Hon. Prof. George Saitoti addressed us on the need for peaceful co-existence and urgent police reform. He spoke passionately & at great length, his desire to see a free, fair & transparent election in which the people of Kenya could elect persons of their choice. After this forum, I proceeded to Nyamira on the morning of 10th June 2012, to attend a Peace and Reconciliation meeting convened by the late Minister in Chepilat / Borabu, the border of Bomet and Nyamira Counties scheduled for Monday 11th June, 2012 On the way I received news that there had been a helicopter crash, only to learn the occupants were Hon. Prof. George Saitoti, Minister for Internal Security and Provincial Administration and his Assistant Minister Hon.
