We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Governor David Nkedianye and Kajiado Central MP, Elijah Memusi, on Tuesday claimed their lives are in danger.

Nkedianye and Memusi claimed a senior government official allegedly sent them a message that they could face “elimination” because they have become Jubilee’s “stumbling block”.

The two subsequently recorded statements with the county directorate of criminal investigations in Kajiado town.

County deputy DCIO, Daniel Musangi, recorded the statements from the two, who were accompanied by ODM nominee member of East Africa Legislative Assembly, Judy Pareno.

Memusi told Musangi that a senior government official is quoted having said Jubilee must win all the elective positions Kajiado “even if people will be eliminated”.

“The same day I received that message, our Orange House in Kajiado was burnt down by arsonists. When you connect the two, what do you make out of that?” asked Memusi.

He went on: “We are here to say we cannot take those threats lightly. We want to know how what elimination method the State will use to eliminate us in order to win seats in the impending elections.”

Nkedianye said he is fearful of his life and demanded that the state should come out clear over the arson at the Orange House in Kajiado and continuous threats visited on the opposition as the country prepare to go to the general elections in August.

“We have come here as law-abiding citizens to record statements over those threats. We demand state protection, and note that we are not begging to be protected,” said Nkedianye.

Memusi refused to give the name of the person quoted by his aide as having claimed that “some people will be eliminated” in order for Jubilee to win the impending elections.

He only claimed the person is a “senior government official in charge of security” in the country.

After recording all the statements, Musangi ruled out politics in the arson case and said investigations revealed that those who burnt the opposition office in Kajiado are “people bent on grabbing the land on which the office stands”.

Nkedianye and Memusi objected Musangi’s claims and accused the police of being part of the arsonists working with the Jubilee to frustrate the opposition.

“We are not children, and you should address us rightfully over this matter. You cannot rule out politics and yet everyone can see connect politics with the burning of our office. Why is it happening now as the country prepares for a general election?” Memusi asked.
