The government through the Interior Ministry which is le by Dr Fred Matiang’i has been withdrawing VIP security from legislators allied to Deputy President Dr William Ruto.
The vocal Tanga Tanga movement member have been making noise over the withdrawal of the Security. However, some of them became victims!
Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa, who is a vocal Tanga Tanga Member has now moved to court seeking intervention over the withdrawal of his gun.
Didmus wants the court to quash a decision by the State to confiscate his gun.
He alleges that the move was politically instigated.
He alludes that it is an attempt to exert pressure on the MPs who have openly supported Deputy President William Ruto.
The Kimilili lawmaker is seeking to have the Firearm Licensing Board compelled to renew his certificate and return his firearm.
He has also accused the Board’s Secretary Charles Mukindia of intimidation.
Through his advocate Danstan Omari, Barasa claims that the confiscation of his firearm has put his life in danger.
The controversial lawmaker claims that he has received several death threats since the year began and he is apprehensive that his security detail might be withdrawn.
Barasa alleged that he was attacked by armed robbers in January this year on Mombasa Road.
According to him, he would not have survived the ordeal had he not been armed.
The Board Secretary and Interior CS Fred Matiang’i are listed as 1st and 2nd respondents in the suit
