Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale claims his life is in danger after having his Nairobi hotel room barged into on Saturday night by unidentified men claiming to be from Flying Squad.

In a Twitter post, Dr Khalwale said the men, who drove in two cars, sought to arrest me but failed to identify themselves to hotel authorities.

According to Dr Khalwale, the men would later stalk him until 2am on Sunday morning.

The veteran politician tagged the post to the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet and Interior CS Fred Matiang’i, but fell short of revealing whether he has reported the matter to the police.

The post attracted several numerous reactions from the former senators’ 150,00 followers on Twitter, with a majority being messages of support.

Dr Khalwale, who unsuccessfully tried to unseat current Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya during the August 8 general election, is a core and vocal member of the opposition outfit Nasa.

He was among the key members of Nasa who turned up on Friday to welcome opposition leader Raila Odinga, an event that turned chaotic, leaving five dead, several injured and properties destroyed.
