A few days back, KTN’s investigative reporter Mohamed Ali received threats from a self-declared powerful Kenyan by the name of Robert Wachira asking him to keep off the government or else will “finish him”.
On receiving the news, the fearless journalist did not hesitate to share it with his followers in a bid to reveal how people were keen on suppressing the truth.
"Mr Mohammed Ali, you are a young boy, apparently you just married the other day and you now have a son less than one year old. i want to give you a last warning. life is so precious if you don't know," the post read in part.
To push his point home, the man added that he is a very powerful man with the means to do just about anything and went ahead to give the journalist his number so he could go report wherever he wishes.
The journalist has of late dealt with a lot of threats on his life, but refuses to be cowed from what he does best; exposing the social atrocities and injustice facing Kenyans.
Below is the message as shared on Ali’s page
VITISHO VYA VITOTO VYA JUBILEE CHINI YA UONGOZI WA KI-IMLA.
