• Gachagua claims some people have been trailing his movements citing a case of Nakuru where he had pitched tents for campaigns.
• The UDA presidential running mate, however, said he will not be cowed and will keep pushing for their presidential bid.
Rigathi Gachagua, the UDA presidential running mate now says his life is in danger. The politician claims that some people have been trailing his movements.
The UDA presidential running mate, however, said he will not be cowed and will keep pushing for their presidential bid.
"The reason I am saying my life is in danger is that some people have been following me, a recent case being in Nakuru. But I am not afraid, I am ready to pay the ultimate price," he said while on a campaign trail in Nyeri county.
This comes hot on the heels of allegations by Gatundu MP Moses Kuria who claimed that his life is in danger from president Uhuru Kenyatta, allegations the Star could not authenticate.
Kuria faulted the IG for providing excess security detail to UDA Kiambu governor candidate Kimani Wamatangi in all his political meetings.
It is while making the statement that he claimed the President threatened him.
"Dear IG Mutyambai, while your boss Uhuru Kenyatta is busy threatening my life, you are providing police in Uniforms in 3 land rovers under the command of an OCS to my competitor Kimani wa Matangi for all his meetings," he said in a statement on Facebook Saturday.
"It happened on Wednesday in Mungere in Lari and yesterday in Ngegu, Kiambu Town. Not even Governor James Nyoro is getting this level of security. Treat us all equally and more so those of us whose lives are in danger after Uhuru Kenyatta's threats."
He, however, did not reveal why he was being threatened by the president. The MP also did not provide any proof to substantiate claims that he was being threatened by the President.
The Star was still trying to verify the veracity of Kuria's claims.
