Governor Mutua claims his life is in danger,accuses DP Ruto,Duale and Murkomen

BY  NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,16TH DEC 2019-Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has recorded a statement  with the police accusing Deputy President William Ruto and his close allies of threatening him with unspecified consequences for allegedly criticizing them.

Addressing the press  Kilimani Police Station where he  recorded a statement, Governor Mutua named the National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale and his Senate counterpart Kipchumba Murkomen as being part of the plan to have him eliminated.

The governor states that  the three made the threats against his life on two separate occasions at State House, Nairobi.

“On Monday November 25, 2019, as the party leader Maendeleo Chap Chap, I was at State House to witness President Uhuru Kenyatta receive the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report. While waiting for the function to start, I was conversing with fellow leaders and politely greeted Aden Duale who was engaged in a conversation with Onesmus Kipchumba Murkomen,” he said.

“They told me that I have a habit of attacking them. When I asked them how they told me ‘we will teach you a lesson because you have been attacking Deputy President William Ruto.’”

The Machakos County boss further claimed that Duale, who also doubles up as the Garissa Township Member of Parliament, told him that there are over 50,000 Kambas in his constituency and he “can deal with them” as a way to punish him.

Mutua added that DP Ruto allegedly grabbed and held on to his hand and told him “you fellow, you have been attacking me very much…I must now crush you…I will crush you.”

The governor stated that he informed Raila Odinga as well as four other senior government officials present at the event about the threats because “I believe that William Ruto is serious and capable of carrying out his threat to my life and general welfare.”

He also hinted to it that the alleged  threats on his life could have been as a result of his interest in the 2022 presidential race, adding that he will remain unshaken and unbowed.

Governor Mutua now wants the police to investigate the matter as well as beef up his security.
