Nyeri - A magistrate based at the Othaya Law Courts has received death threats.
Henry Nyakweba, the Othaya Principal Magistrate arrived at his work station only to find the threat letter which had been delivered via posta.
The letter is purported to have been written on January 9, 2015 with the author giving the magistrate 21 days to leave Othaya or get killed.
“It does not matter whether you have state security or not. We know where you stay but before we get you please leave,” read the letter in part.

The author of the said letter claimed they already had the necessary machinery to eliminate the magistrate if he does not leave the town.
The magistrate said he has since reported the matter to the police to establish the identity of the author(s) of the letter.
Nyakweba, who has been working at the Othaya law Courts since April 14 said he believes the threats may have emanated from criminals who might be unhappy with his work.
