Raila says Fidel did not die a natural death

Cord leader Raila Odinga has told mourners in Kisumu that his son Fidel did not die a natural death.

Speaking during Fidel’s requiem mass at the Jomo Kenyatta Sports Ground in Kisumu on Friday, Raila said his son did not show any signs of ailments prior to his death.

“Fidel did not die a natural death. We are looking forward to a report on investigations into his death as promised by the Government yesterday (Thursday),” Raila said.

Without further elaboration, Raila said Fidel’s death may be the beginning of “something else and we must remain steadfast.”

“We know where we are coming from and where we are going. Let Fidel’s death not distract our agenda,” he said. He thanked all Kenyans for their condolence messages.

Homa Bay Town MP Opondo Kaluma, who monitored Fidel’s post mortem with lawyers James Orengo (Siaya Senator) and Tom Kajwang’ (Ruaraka) said “the examination which only revealed he suffered mild throat pain is an indication he may have been killed.”

ODM will dispatch a team of legal experts and medics to Germany to further probe Fidel’s death, Siaya Senator James Orengo said.

Orengo said the results of the autopsy done locally will also be dispatched.

“Luos were not imported to Kenya from other countries. Luos are also within the 42 tribes in Kenya and should be respected as well,” he said.

The mourners supported the need for a conclusive probe but heckled Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma who did not speak.

Fidel’s body arrived aboard a Kenya Air Force plane for the viewing held at Jomo Kenyatta Sports Grounds.

Members of the Kenya Rugby Football Club for which he was chairman carried his casket to a hearse amid tight security by regular and administration police.

Shops remained closed while hundreds walked and drove to join thousands others at the venue
