The Killing of Kabete MP George Muchai along with his driver and two body guards was avoidable. The driver should not have stopped after he was hit by the hit man’s vehicle. The driver should not have stopped even if there was no danger because it was late at night. The driver lacked experience of driving a politician at night and sensing danger. The two guards were caught completely unprepared and unaware. They lacked preparedness and sensing danger.
It was odd hours to stop to buy newspaper. The driver is employed to drive safely and sense danger and speed off. The two security guards should have come out immediately to look, watch and deter the attacker. It’s better if the MP should have driven himself without body guards.
It’s like music that most politicians are assassinated while in car when the gate is being open entering their residency and guards are caught unprepared. It’s safer if all politicians have armored vehicles for travel, train their drivers to be sensitive and hire trained security guards who are able to sense danger and ready to deter the enemy. Kabete MP’s killing was avoidable. The killing may be either by political rivals or business competitors but not government. The government is generally blamed for insecurity. The attacker was tracking his movement.
