Saturday, February 26, 2022 – Amani National Congress Party Leader, Musalia Mudavadi, has run to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government for protection after it emerged that COTU Boss Francis Atwoli wants him dead.
In a statement, through his lawyer Nick Biket, Mudavadi demanded the Director of Criminal Investigations to arrest Atwoli for threatening his life.
He requested the DCI to compel the Secretary-General of COTU to reveal what he knows about the plans to harm him.
In the letter, the lawyer said Mudavadi is fearing for his life following Atwoli’s threatening remarks.
According to Mudavadi’s lawyer, the vibrant unionist has variously been issuing threats aimed at his client and that he must account for them this time around.
Among the statements, the Kenya Kwanza alliance leader feels amounts to a threat to his life include the following.
“Mimi nawaambia mchana and I don’t want to curse you kwa ajili nilimpa kiti nikasema yeye ataongoza sisi kama jamii yetu,” the lawyer quotes Atwoli as saying.
“Lakini ile kitu nataka kumwambia anaenda kuitwa; kama hawachi hiyo mtindo hivi karibuni utafungua TV yako unaona breaking news, mama yake amemuita; mnasikia hiyo maneno?” he added.
Mudavadi’s lawyer noted the words in reference to his client were injurious and life-threatening.
He claimed that the statements by the COTU boss dictate that himself and a clique of individuals are privy to information that puts the life of our client at risk.
“Ours is to demand, which we hereby do, that one Francis Atwoli, be summoned and/or arrested and charged for these life-threatening statements,” Mudavadi said in the letter.
