Busia Senator Okiya Omtatah Heads To Police To File Death Threat Claims Against Ruto

Police Officers in Nyanchwa police station in Kisii County on Tuesday morning turned away Busia Senator Okiya Omtatah from filing death threats claims against President William Ruto.

 

Omtatah was sent away from Nyanchwa Police after attempting to file another report at Mosocho Police Station in Kitutu Chache South.

Omtatah alleged that Ruto made death threats against him and others thwarting his policies during a church function in Cardinal High School, Mosocho where he conducted a fundraiser on Saturday, December 16.

The senator argued that by challenging the Housing Levy in court, he felt the threat was directed at him.

“As he was speaking he started censuring those who challenged the Finance Act ruling particularly on the Housing Levy. He said that he will deal with them with the sword he was given in Kasarani,” said Omtatah.

“He said that sword is not for cutting vegetables but it is for dealing with those crooks opposing his government. I am not a crook and I have never done anything that can label me as a crook.”

Despite meeting frustrations at the police station, Omtatah has vowed that he will make sure his statement is on record and a probe is launched against President Ruto’s suggestive statement.

“I have met a bullish OCPD who thinks he understands the law and has refused to take my statement. I will follow the law and ensure that this statement will be on record,” noted Omtatah.

“Even if I fail to take Ruto to court now, he will not be president forever. It will reach a point where he will leave and we will challenge him. We want that matter investigated.”

During Saturday’s event, Ruto suggested to use the ceremonial sword he received from his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta during his official swearing-in to handle those opposing the Housing Levy through the courts.

“You know I was given a sword. Do you think it’s for cutting vegetables? It’s for dealing with all these crooks here. I will uproot them completely, and Kenya will move forward,” Ruto said.

His statement has since invoked reactions from Kenyans including the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) which termed Ruto’s statement as reckless.

“As a society, we wish to condemn the utterances by the Head of State that he was given a sword upon inauguration and he will use that sword on people he considers to be enemies of the Republic of Kenya by virtue of them exercising their right to go to Court and challenge Government decisions, including those that have gone to Court to challenge the Housing Levy,” said LSK president Eric Theuri.
