A story of a weeping Senator Cleophas Malala has gone viral on social media.
The Kakamega Senator has lately been involved in a cat and mouse chase with the Police over procedural investigations among other innuendos – By Gerald Gekara.
This however is not the point. Malala has made grave allegations about his personal security that warrant the attention of the public and top cop, Inspector General Hilary Mutyambai.
He claims that those out to kill him have ensured that he is gravely exposed to danger, by denying him adequate security.
Malala may or may not be crying wolf. There are even suggestions that Malala woes emanate from his activities in the Governor Anne Waiguru saga. But this is neither here nor there.
This country is replete with incidences where politicians have been murdered mysteriously after reporting that their lives are in danger.
Danger lurks everywhere in Kenya. From business deals gone sour to family feuds and political threats.
Malala lives in Kenya and these are well-founded fears.
To become a senator, he must have stepped on many toes, and these may revisit now that he is weeping all over…including on the floor of parliament.
It will however be wise for Malala to honor his business deals. If he has pending bills…because by so doing he will pacify whoever he thinks is after his neck.
The police cannot and will not protect anyone against bitter enemies swindled, love triangle situations, family feuds et al. Senior Citizen Charles Njonjo, former ECK Chair Samuel Kivuitu roamed the streets of Nairobi without bodyguards.
Malala and others can do the same if they stick to their lanes…
