An outspoken Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party Member of Parliament and close ally to Raila Odinga has claimed his life is in danger.
According to Teso South MP, Godfrey Omuse, he has been receiving death threats from unknown people whom he said are ready to harm him.
Speaking after reporting the matter to the police, Omuse said the thugs have been warning him to be careful politically or else he’ll face their wrath.
“Politics has a lot of issues,” Omuse said.
“As I speak now, I have received death threats, but I want to tell my people that even with these intimidations, I will remain steadfast in advocating for what is good for them and engage in good politics in Teso South constituency, Busia County and by extension Kenya,” Omuse added.
The matter is currently under investigation after the legislator reported the matter to Kotur police station.
Sources privy to the matter disclosed that the threats began after the MP announced that he’ll be defending his seat come 2022.
Omuse is a close confidant of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga who is the ODM party leader.
