Nairobi - Mombasa Senator, Hassan Omar, has claimed that his life is in danger after two social media users warned him of dire consequences over his stand on the ongoing police operation at the Coast.
As a result, the Speaker of the Senate Ekwe Ethuro has called on the Police to investigate his claims that his life is in danger.
Ethuro made the remarks Wednesday during the afternoon session after Senator Omar said he had received death threats from two social media users.
The house was unanimous in condemning the threats and called on the police to investigate the duo, urging the Speaker to direct the Police to provide adequate security to the Senator.

Supporting the petition by Omar, Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr said that such claims should be investigated thoroughly saying his late father Mutula Kilonzo Snr had received such threats before his mysterious death.
"These threats should not be taken lightly as even my late father had received such threats before he died under unclear circumstances," he said.
