The Kisumu Molasses theory was based on the unsupported and conflicting testimony. It came from a convicted extortionist and his willing accomplice – Domenico Airaghi and Marriane Briner-Mattern.
Their “reputable” company did not exist.
They had lied to the Kenyan government; they had lied to Dr Ouko; and they had lied to the Scotland Yard detective John Troon.
There was no evidence of corruption.
And no corruption report was ever found.
The Kisumu Molasses theory as a motive for Dr Ouko’s murder is completely without foundation.
Paul Muite:… if I was asked to speculate, my speculation would be that perhaps the Molasses issue were peripheral for the motives of the killing of Dr. Robert Ouko.
