He said that his fight against corruption is what has led to threats against his life.

While listing the evidence in his statement, Dr Mutua cited an incident in State House on November 25, 2019, when Murkomen and Duale confronted him for attacking DP Ruto. Below is a portion of Governor Mutua’s statement.

Mutua has therefore called on the Inspector General of the Police Hilary Mutyambai to provide him with enough security. He has argued that given the history of political assassinations and political violence; such threats can never be wished away.
