Kandara MP Alice Wahome says she remains unmoved in her stand on the politics of the country despite her security being withdrawn.

She attributed the withdrawal of her security detail to her stand on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) and her affiliation to Jubilee’s Tangatanga faction which is aligned to Deputy President William Ruto.

The MP said the Ministry of Interior, headed by Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and PS Karanja Kibicho, started by withdrawing the security at her home in September last year and this culminated in the withdrawal of her bodyguard on Monday.

The MP added that she has been receiving threatening calls and text messages and that the climax of her predicament is the withdrawal of her security detail.

She said that should anything happen to her, the State should take the blame.

“They started by recalling the security detail at my home; they did not offer any explanation. Today my security detail was recalled and I have not been given any explanation as to why both have been recalled. Security is a right for every Kenyan and I wish to tell Kenyans and my supporters that should they fail to locate me or should I be hurt, the State should carry the blame.”
