A jour­nal­ist based in Mu­rang’a county has recorded state­ments with po­lice after re­ceiv­ing threats from an MCA. Vic­tor Kin­uthia, who works for Royal Media Services, made a re­port at Mu­rang’a po­lice sta­tion on Mon­day after Mu­raran­dia MCA Martin Mwangi threat­ened to harm him. He ac­cused him of air­ing defam­a­tory sto­ries. Kin­uthia said the MCA ex­pressed his dis­plea­sure with a story that said drug abuse is ram­pant in his ward.
