Kandara Member of Parliament Alice Wahome claims that her life is in danger after she received death threats for allegedly criticizing President Kenyatta.
Speaking in Murang’a on Wednesday, Wahome claimed that a section of leaders allied to Kenyatta were plotting to eliminate her after she accused the president of being a threat to Kenya’s economy and democracy two weeks ago. She alleged that she received a call from an unidentified person, who threatened to kill her.
“A man called me last week and threatened to kill me. Some leaders allied to Kieleweke are after my life and, should my constituents fail to locate me, they should be interrogated over my whereabouts,” Wahome said.
She also accused the same leaders of hiring youth to disrupt her meeting in Kandara town on Wednesday.
“They had sent goons to try and interrupt my event of issuing bursary cheques but our intelligence recognized them and we called police who arrested 22 of them.”
“Let them know that I will not be cowed or intimidated by their evil schemes. Let them also know that I am guarded and we shall face each other,” she stated.
On January 2nd, Wahome alleged that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) was a scheme by both Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga to extend their stay in power after the 2022 elections.
“The biggest existential threat to Kenya’s declining economy, democracy, and freedom of expression, political affiliation and growth is Uhuru Kenyatta because he is on the driver’s seat,” she claimed.
“Raila Odinga is his new political mercenary for hire, and the BBI report is the special-purpose vehicle heading to the route that has been suggested by Murathe, Atwoli and Beth Mugo,” she added.
