“Just when I thought that I was out they pull me back in.” ~ Michael Corleone (Al Pacino), The Godfather Part III
If there’s anything biographies and movies have taught us about real life kingpins; it is that underground hitmen that go by names such as “Mad Dog” Coll, “Machine Gun” Kelly, “Matty the Horse” Ianniello, “The Snake” Persico or “Trigger Mike” Coppola”, etc, do not shoot and miss. It is like when a maasai moran warns you “Mimi nikitoa kisu yangu haitarudi bila damu” or you’re warned in the miraa farms of Kangeta “Nitakukata na hii panga”…. It is not a warning, it is a fact, one you’d do well to heed if you’re not a fan of masochism.
So back at home it seems we’re on the world narcotics map with the Boss’s name having come out of Obama’s lips, but even while I’m none the wiser as to the validity of the claims of how much weight is being pushed out of Kilome; suffice is to say that if you can get your former driver to get around in a custom made H1 Hummer and campaign using a $1,000/hour chopper, then clearly you’re either of two things: an alchemist who has discovered the “philosopher’s stone”; or overseeing a golden goose as the purveyor to pharmacists with a limited inventory
That is why something isn’t adding up in this so called attempt on the Boss. Apparently “unknown gunmen sprayed a vehicle belonging to Mwau with bullets on City Hall Way on Thursday night, ten days after he claimed his life was in danger.” If these were something more than clueless gunmen, one would think they would not randomly shoot in the middle of the city and next to parliament when they weren’t even sure who was or was not in the car. If Akasha, he who would slap the Mombasa OCPD and pistol whip him with a chrome pistol, was taken out by somebody on a bike, then for sure more than one person of equal intent would not be expected to make a move and at the end “the two occupants escaped unscathed” and even more, only one cartridge was found at the scene.
For once I support the the police who have cast aspersions on the veracity of the claims of two employees of the Boss, they have thus asked that they record more elaborate statements because preliminary investigations show that “considering the points of entry and exit of the bullets, it was not possible that no one was injured”, which of course means it is possible this was staged.
Then this allusion that Obama is after his personal wealth and consequently the boss’s life is in danger is clutching at straws literally, really? When you consider that just three of the richest people in America have as much wealth as the total annual income of the poorest 48 countries, I find it highly unlikely that any real, or imagined, wealth the Boss might have would interest America or add any value to their wealth, I mean there are billionaires across the border in Mexico with their own personal armies that should prove way much more of an incentive if a wealth grab was the issue.
Besides, everybody knows the war on drugs is a joke which the US has no intentions of ending or even waging effectively, in fact Just recently on June 2011, the United Nation’s Global Commission on Drug Policy released a critical report on the War on Drugs, declaring “The global war on drugs has failed”
As for the demand that government accords him extra security, didn’t I just read that there was a driver and a bodyguard in the car? Don’t all Mps have a bodyguard provided at our expense?, plus most legislators have an extra bodyguard because their drivers are almost invariably former or serving policemen. In any case the boss can surely afford to hire private security; this can’t be too much for one who left egg on the two-faced VPs face by airlifting dozens of councillors to the Middle East. Isn’t the Boss the very same person who during the Moi era offered to bring piped water to his constituency and single-handedly finance the project out of his considerably deep pockets?
Maybe our local bosses can borrow a leaf from Mexico where bosses are building their own battle tanks:
