KENYA: BREAKING NEWS: EMBAKASI MP (ODM) SHOT DEAD!
Embakasi MP shot dead outside his house
January 28, 2008, 10:53 pm
Newly elected MP for Embakasi constituency in Nairobi, Kenya - Mr. Melitus Were has been shot dead in his house. The ODM has issued a statement through its spokesman Tony Gachoka pointing fingers at the government and the Mungiki sect. Suspicion is also being directed at the immediate former member for Embakasi Mr. David Mwenje who has in the past publicly admitted to being in cahoots with the Mungiki terror gang.
The murder of the MP comes at a time when Kenya is faced with its worst crisis since independence. It is unclear how the residents of the populous Eastlands constituency will react to the news of the murder of their representative. Were was just sworn in recently after winning a bruising battle against the long time MP David Mwenje.
Police spokesman, Kiraithe said that they are not sure what the motive of the murder was and are not going to attribute it to the ongoing violence in various parts of the country, saying that it could have been an act of thuggery.

MESSAGE FROM KDPM:
KDPM condemns the killers of Hon. Melitus Mugabe Were.However, more condemnation goes to the Kenyan Police Commissioner Maj.Gen. Mohamed. H.Ali. If the situation in Kenya is out of hand, he should be man enough to resign or call for international help. How many more members of parliament does he want to see dead before he makes a tangible move?
Gerald Baraza, President, KDPM
