Justin Muturi is the current Speaker of the Kenyan Parliament. Hon. Justin Muturi announced his desire in succeeding the incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta. But Speaker Justin Muturi has claimed that he and his supporters are being threatened by Government agencies. This has forced him to hit out at the Government agencies.
As reported by the Standard Digital, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has hit out at government agencies threatening and intimidating leaders with a contrary political stand to the ruling party.
The Speaker claimed that Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) officials have indicated that they will scrutinise his tax records after he declared his presidential bid. Muturi said that efforts to harass, intimidate and alienate his supporters would fail miserably since the voters have powers to choose their leaders.
"Threatening people with opening files and investigations should stop. I will stand with the leaders who are being intimidated for supporting me," Justin Muturi." Tweeted by The Standard Digital
