Police have beefed up security at the rural home of lawyer PLO Lumumba in Siaya County after his workers allegedly received death threats from unknown people.

According to the area OCPD Paul Kiarie, who spoke to The Standard, police spent the whole day at the homestead in Usigu Division, Bondo sub-county investigating the sources of the alleged threat.

Four Police officers have been stationed at the homestead as a way of beefing up security.

Mr. Kiarie said police have received intelligence indicating that some people were planning to attack and destroy property at the home because of Lumumba’s remarks during the hearing of the presidential petition at the Supreme Court.

Lumumba, who was representing IEBC in the case, has been viewed as a traitor by some NASA supporters and has been heavily trolled on social media by the alliance’s supporters since Monday evening after he represented his client.

Unknown people hurled stones into the compound of the lawyer on Monday night soon after he made his submissions at the court in which he declared the NASA petition “dead on arrival” and asked the Supreme Court to dismiss it.
