The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

Emu­rua Dikirr MP Jo­hanna Ng’eno on Tues­day recorded a state­ment with the DCI in Kil­go­ris town over threats to form a mili­tia group.

Trans Mara DCIO David Njogu said Ng’eno al­legedly is­sued the threats on Oc­to­ber 29 at Sachang­wan trad­ing cen­tre in his con­stituency. He al­legedly threat­ened to form a mili­tia group to counter the Chang­ina Youth Am­bas­sadors.

“The MP came here to record a state­ment over two is­sues; the threat to form a mili­tia group to counter a group which he claims has been dis­rupt­ing his meet­ings; and as a com­plainant over threats to his life,’’ Njogu said.

Ng’eno ar­rived at Trans Mara West po­lice head­quar­ters ac­com­pa­nied by his sup­port­ers.

Af­ter mak­ing his state­ment, he ad­dressed jour­nal­ists out­side the head­quar­ters. The leg­is­la­tor urged the po­lice to ar­rest mem­bers of the Chang­ina Youth Am­bas­sadors, led by Vic­tor Kipro­tich, alias Sonko.
