We hope this was just a normal case of sickness and death, however, there are many angles and being a person who was central to a terror attack investigations, a lot of cover up might be at play.
It is not something that is easy to pin down or to wish off, that the death of Monica Wambui Githahiga will not raise eyebrows or spin out conspiracy theories or worse still bring a lot of questions.
Anyways the media has reported as below, but blogs will have their way. Let’s wait and see in the coming weeks.
