Murang’a MCA threatens to harm journalist
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. Journalists, among them Kinuthia, visited Murarandia village on September 14, where more than 20 schoolchildren are said to have dropped out of school due to drug addiction. Kinuthia said Mwangi has sent several people to warn him.
