  • Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi has accused a senior ODM official of threatening to kill him.

    Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, Havi stated that the official threatened his life on January 18, during an Annual General Meeting convened by LSK that turned chaotic.

    The LSK Boss informs that he would take legal action against the leader, revealing that he will present himself to the office of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on the morning of January 20 to report the matter.

    In a video from the chaotic meeting seen by Kenyans.co.ke, the accused politician is heard shouting, "you will die by the bullet and we will come bury you".

    "He said that I will die by the Bullet. That is a threat to kill me. I am a public figure, I appear in a lot of forums, I am easily accessible. You know he is a friend of the other one who shot someone at a club," Havi stated.

    The LSK President alleged that he doubts if the official was acting on his own volition or that of the ODM Party.

    "ODM has always worked to derail my work at LSK and that is what you see me fighting to root out," Havi alleged.

    "I will be submitting a formal complaint to the IG (Hillary Mutyambai), National Police Service and the Director of Criminal Investigations on the offence threat to murder made against me yesterday. Should my life be endangered, you know the culprit and his principals," Havi had earlier shared.

    He also accused a former LSK Presidential aspirant for sending goons including the ODM official to disrupt the AGM meeting yesterday.

    “First Lady, concentrate on your official role in Laikipia County. You cannot send your known goons to disrupt a peaceful meeting of the Law Society of Kenya and blame it on the President,” Havi stated.

    During the chaotic meeting, eight members were suspended whereas another council member resigned.

    The suspended officials are said to have been at loggerheads with Havi and had constantly opposed how he runs the society.
