My life is in danger, Jubilee out to finish me politically - Muthama claims

Tension is high after Machakos ex-senator Johnson Muthama disclosed disturbing information regarding his life...

Speaking to a local daily, Muthama alleged a plot by Jubilee to finish and silence him politically. The ex-senator, who is also in Raila Odinga's presidential campaign team, disclosed that he was being harassed by politicians allied to the Jubilee party.

“I am a target of Jubilee leadership, from top to bottom. For quite some time, Jubilee has used its agents to harass and silence me politically,” Muthama stated.He questioned why he was being re-arrested for hate speech charges that he had already faced and freed by the court."I was arrested, detained for four days and charged for an offence that was said to have been committed on September 23, 2015 at Uhuru Park. Later the prosecution said I had committed a similar offence on September 26 at the same venue,” Muthama said.The ex-senator, was recently nabbed by police officers over speech charges alongside Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.

Muthama's sentiments come after Odinga announced that the government was harassing those opposed to the Jubilee government after the recent arrest of Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.
