Allan Namu Speaks on Linking Monica Kimani to 'The Profiteers' Documentary

  • Veteran investigative journalist John Allan Namu has explained why he linked Monica Nyawira Kimani's murder to South Sudan cartels in the documentary 'The Profiteers'.

    Speaking at NRG Radio on Thursday, Namu indicated that to the best of his knowledge, he believed that Monica's murder had something to do with South Sudan.

    "Although we can't speculate, the killer could have been after the money that Monica allegedly ferried from South Sudan, or he could have been sent by some cartels with special interest," he stated.

    Namu further revealed that they deliberately included Monica's case in the documentary to demonstrate the ripple of economic crimes in South Sudan.

    "If someone steals food from a house two blocks away and comes to enjoy it in your house, you should be worried. There is nothing that would stop them from stealing from you and enjoying the loot elsewhere," he illustrated.

    The award-winning investigative journalist noted that although the documentary failed to air due to editorial concerns, "there was more than meets the eye", alluding to the powerful influence the South Sudan officials command in Kenya.

    Monica was allegedly well connected to South Sudanese politician and former warlord Daniel Awet Akot.

    "What we are doing now is ensuring our security and that of our sources given that we have received credible threats," he added.

    Namu also indicated that Joseph Lagu, a freelance journalist who was featured on The Profiteers documentary was being threatened for his comments in the film.

    The Profiteers, which is available on Africa Uncensored's YouTube and social media accounts, documented how senior officials in South Sudan have been siphoning public funds.

    The money looted from Sudan's public coffers is then conduited to Kenya and Uganda through banking institutions where the cartels have been investing in different businesses.
