BRING ME THE HEAD OF DR ROBERT OUKO

Following on from our last posting, the Kenya Forum team have been working through the ‘Case Study’ into the mysterious murder in February 1990 of Kenya’s then Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr Robert Ouko, published online at www.kenyaunsolved.com a week ago. It has taken a while because the report is very detailed, runs into many thousands of words and is backed up by hundreds of links to supportive documents. Arising from it are two little intriguing questions (among many others): is Dr Ouko’s head still in London? And was a ‘Caucasian’ involved in his murder?

The report states that in a book entitled ‘Dr Iain West’s Casebook’, author Chester Stern claimed that the Scotland Yard detective sent to Kenya to investigate the murder, Detective Superintendent John Troon, had helped a British Forensic Pathologist on his team, Dr Iain West, to take Dr Ouko’ s ‘skull vault through the airport by persuading the authorities that the usual X-rays might damage vital samples being taken back to England. When it came to the state funeral, an imaginative and innovative mortuary assistant had simply covered the discrepancy by creating a convincing death-mask to attach to the top of the body for the benefit of those wishing to view the body’.

The Kenya Unsolved report notes that, ‘Aside from the fact that part of Dr Ouko’s skull was arrogantly and improperly removed to London it leaves the question, is it still there?’

And in the same report, a few paragraphs later it states that a Forensic Scientist, Mr Phillip Toates, intriguingly reported that ‘a single Caucasian hair was found loosely associated with a partially burnt handkerchief found at the scene’ where Dr Ouko’s body was found.

Well, is Dr Ouko’s skull or part of it still in London? And has the ‘Caucasian hair’ ever been DNA tested?

The Kenya Forum thinks we should be told.
