‘Know where my house is in case they come for me’ – Wamalwa pleads with Raila
Former Defence Cabinet Secretary (CS) Eugene Wamalwa claims the government is targetting former ministers who were loyal to retired President Uhuru Kenyatta.
"What is happening now reminds us of the dark Kanu days. We went to a function in Kibra by the time we were leaving that rally because some of us have been seen very committed on this side we have been targetted," Wamalwa said while speaking at Azimio Parliamentary Group meeting in Machakos on February 9, 2023.
The former Defence CS further asked Raila Odinga to know where his house is located so that he could save him as he did when the home of former Interior CS Fred Matiang’i was raided.
"You've heard about what happened to my brother Matiang'i last night. And Baba we must really thank you for being there for him. In fact, I want after we finish I want you to know my house in case it happens also. Because I am told there is a list," Wamalwa said.
Wamalwa further claimed that retired president Kenyatta and former CSs who were close to him are being targeted.
"Those of us who were ministers in Uhuru's government who were close to Uhuru, they are not just targetting Uhuru, they are targetting us as well," he said.
Wamalwa added that he used to have four police officers attached to him but his entire security detail was withdrawn after he attended Azimio rally in Kibera.
"Maybe you might not know this Baba but having been a Defense Minister I had about four security officers. Three were withdrawn. But the day I was seen in Kibra the next day the only remaining police officer assigned me was also withdrawn," Wamalwa said.
"As we speak, there is the attempt to intimidate. You are the voices of the people if you don't speak the dark days are upon us," he added.
