Former president Daniel Arap Moi's press secretary Lee Njiru said there was a lot of backstabbing, jealousy and infighting, even witchcraft in State House, when he worked there.

He said he has even written a book about witchcraft in the State House and some people are appalled because they do not believe that there was witchcraft.

"They should remember that in 1994, the former president Mzee Moi himself, established a presidential commission of Antidevil worship and it was headed by Archibishop Dicodemus Kirima, Reverend Njue, Muhinde, among other people," he said.

"People have been calling me because they do not believe, I remind them even Mzee Moi knew, there was witchcraft hence coming up with the commission."

Lee said working in the State House is very lucrative, and the allowances are very fat, foreign trips and people respect you when you work there because they think you are near power.

"They think you can get them jobs or you can make a telephone call and they will be given waivers."

Lee explained because of all the advantages, nobody wants to be removed from State House and that is why some resort to witchcraft.

"When you feel that your position was threatened, if you feel inadequate, some of them seek divine interventions. They go to dark forces, it used to happen and I witnessed it," he said. 

He went on to give one incident when a photographer was caught red-handed practising witchcraft at State House.

"One-time mzee Moi came very early in the morning, we did not expect him so early and then he had visitors, the visitors asked for a photo and the photographer on duty had arrived."

"We had to break into his cabinet and we found his camera tied with the tail of a squirrel, but because I do not believe in witchcraft, I took the camera and got beautiful pictures," he said.

Lee said he told the photographer to stop that nonsense, but did not tell Moi about the incident.

"You do not destroy people on such small things because they might have children, wives, sick mothers, so you just warn them," he said.
