Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale says he has recorded a statement with the police, following recent “threats” issued to him by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The vocal politician made public the announcement on his official Twitter page.
Khalwale’s anxiety comes after President Kenyatta promised to “deal” with him for continuously insulting him.
I’ve this morning recorded a statement at Kakamega Police Station concerning President Uhuru’s threats against me while he was in Kakamega

President Kenyatta made the statements during a stopover at Malinya market on Saturday.
The president was accompanied by among others his deputy William Ruto while on a campaign trail in Kakamega County.
President Kenyatta also challenged area residents to ask Dr Khalwale to account for his development record in the area, instead of referring to him in each of his campaign speeches.
Khalwale has been consistent in criticising President Kenyatta’s administration, mostly referring to it as “corrupt” and one unable to feed Kenyans.
