Former president Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings Former president Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings

Former President Jerry John Rawlings, has suggested the death of investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale was as a result of the decision by one man to unmask the investigative journalist and incite violence against him.

He is therefore calling on the security agencies to fully investigate the matter and bring the offenders to book.

In a tweet he said: “We are here today largely because one man recklessly unmasked an investigative reporter and issued threats of violence.”
“Ahmed Suale’s killing cannot be allowed to end up like others- unresolved. We have to get to the bottom of these questionable circumstances and their implications for our wider safety.”

He has also supported the call by the president and other individuals for a thorough probe to be done.

‘I support the call by the President and other opinion leaders for a conclusive investigation. I am equally moved by a strongly worded letter by US Congressman Henry Johnson seeking Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s support for the investigation of Suale’s death.’
