Leaders condemn death threats issued to Kavuludi

Vihiga - Leaders from Vihiga County have condemned the death threats issued to the National Police Service Commission chairperson Johnstone Kavuludi.
Sabatia MP Alfred Agoi said that the death threats should not be taken lightly because it has happened before in that way to other leaders in the country who ended up dying mysteriously.
“We as leaders from Vihiga highly condemn the savage act of threatening people who are in positions of authority because they do not ascribe to certain philosophies,” said Agoi.
Agoi further said that the culprits who propagated the hate message to Kavuludi should be quickly brought to book and charged as the country has the mechanism to do so.
Hamisi Mp Charles Gimose noted that the threats are coming at a time when there are looming supremacy battles between the commission and the office of the Inspector General, and that it is not a healthy thing to have happened.
“People should understand that Kavuludi is not a police man to engage in wars with the Inspector General. They should give him a chance to work in the human resource department where he is stationed,” he said.
Speaking separately, African Divine Church Archbishop John Chabuga said that the act should be investigated thoroughly and the findings made public.
The archbishop bemoaned the increasing cases of insecurity in the country and the increased deaths on the roads.
“We as the church are against such acts of propagating insecurity in the country. The government should work on the means on which the cases are regulated and people live harmoniously,” he said.
On Thursday last week, a carton was dropped at Kavuludi’s office by unknown people in Nairobi addressed to him. Inside was a note reading “Kavuludi you are next”.
Chabuga added that the church is at the fore front of leading the national healing and coalition process, and that the process should not be interrupted by such upheavals.
