The death of Malcolm X and Pio Gama Pinto has raised serious questions and conspiracy theories surrounding their mysterious demise. Both assassinations occurred in the same week, sparking speculation and intrigue. Pinto, 38 years old, was assassinated outside his home in Nairobi on February 24th. Malcolm X, 39 years old, was killed while speaking to an audience in Harlem, New York on February 21st. He had recently left the Nation of Islam and formed a new organization called the Afro-American Unity Organization (OAAU).

Malcolm X encountered Pio Gama Pinto in Nairobi, Kenya in 1959. Through the development of a strong bond and taking a unified stance against the mistreatment of black individuals globally, Malcolm X broadened his perspective to embrace Pan-Africanism and reevaluated his beliefs to encompass internationalism in the struggle against oppression. It has been documented that Pinto was the individual who questioned Malcolm’s nationalist ideologies.

In 2016, Dick Gregory commented (S.Durrani 2018) that it is believed that this might be one of the factors why both Pinto and Malcolm X were assassinated. Accusing the United States at the United Nations of committing crimes against humanity, Pinto and Malcolm X devised a strategy to tackle the mistreatment of Africans and African-Americans during their partnership.

At the doorstep of the U.S.A., Malcolm brought racism with him, discussing it as he downplayed Nairobi and New York City. Pinto, the one he persuaded when he went to Africa, is a real leader who met all the true leaders and stayed for seven weeks. The U.S. Government said we can’t let this happen, and Malcolm, the head of the Black nationalist Pan Africanism movement, made a connection from there to here. He changed because his brother, who was called Pinto and born in Nairobi, was killed at the same time.

In Kenya, when Independence was achieved in 1963, Pinto was the first to highlight the betrayal of capitalist Africanization led by the emerging ruling elite. They chose to follow a capitalist path with the support of the U.S.A as a response to the spread of socialism. Upon returning to Kenya, Pinto actively participated in all aspects of the liberation struggle. This included involvement in radical trade unions and movements, establishment of progressive political and educational institutions, promotion and popularization of socialist policies and politics, and wholehearted support for the Mau Mau liberation war. Pinto was also instrumental in the founding of the Goa National Congress in India, which aimed to free Goa from colonial rule. Born on the 31st of March, 1927, Pinto himself was a native of Nairobi.

In 1963, he cautioned that Kenya’s Uhuru (Independence) should not be converted into the liberty to take advantage of others or the liberty to experience hunger and reside in unawareness. Instead, Uhuru (Independence) should be the liberation for the majority, liberation from exploitation, from unawareness, sickness, and destitution.

Harlem in 1964, during his speech, Malcolm X acknowledged the contribution of the Mau Mau liberation movement in Kenya to overthrowing British colonial rule through guerrilla warfare. Malcolm’s comprehension and admiration for revolutionary movements beyond the borders of the United States were evident. During the gathering, Malcolm proclaimed, “Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Harlem all require a Mau Mau revolution!”.

According to him, Shiraz Durrani emphasizes the significance of comprehending the fatalities of Pio Gama Pinto and Malcolm X within both the domestic and global setting in Pio Gama Pinto – Kenya’s Unsung Martyr 1927-1965, which is among the most extensive resources accessible on Pinto.

The truth conceals assassinations and threats in order to further their use, and if this fails to stop the investigation, they also deprive others seeking clarification of funds. This again requires more research, but official investigations in Britain, USA, and Kenya prevent any meaningful progress. The assassinations of Pinto and X Malcolm fall into this pattern. Evidence is either destroyed or hidden. The political motives of the instigators behind the hidden assassinations serve to make a number of scapegoats. There are no links between the real masters and the assassins, indicating that there is a pattern of assassinations carried out by imperialism.

The present crisis of capitalism, inequality, racism, and the rise of fascism validates the revolutionary ideas and stances of both Malcolm X and Pio Gama Pinto. Revolutionary ideas are resilient and cannot be extinguished, although revolutionaries themselves can be eliminated. The individuals accused of Malcolm X’s assassination were declared innocent in 2021 and will be compensated with $36 million for their wrongful conviction. Similarly, the person charged with the murder of Pio Gama Pinto was released in 2001 and, after 20 years, received 2.5 million shillings as compensation for the torture endured during their 35-year imprisonment. Despite Malcolm X’s conflict with the Nation of Islam and Pio Gama Pinto’s ability to unsettle the Kenyan ruling elite, imperialist forces played a role in their killings. Distractions are employed to divert public attention, and those responsible for the assassinations of African revolutionaries are never apprehended, which is an undeniable reality.
