Okiya Omtatah turned away from filing a report against President William Ruto’s sword remarks – believe his life was now in danger

On Tuesday in Kisii, it is alleged that officers refused to accept a report from Busia Senator Okiya Omtatah regarding President William Ruto’s controversial remarks about a sword.

Omtatah reportedly tried to file the report at Nyanchwa Police Station, following a referral from officers at Mosocho Police Station in Kitutu Chache South.

The Officer in Charge at Nyanchwa Police Station reportedly declined to speak to the media during the incident.

As journalists pressed him for comments, he left the police station without providing any statement.

Omtatah claimed that Ruto singled him out and others in an attempt to undermine their policies during a church event at Cardinal High School in Mosocho, where a fundraiser was held.

At the fundraiser, the President pledged to take action against individuals sabotaging his legacy projects whom he referred to as cartels.

“You gave me the powers. All these people who want to block us will face me. I will deal with them, I just need your prayer,” Ruto said.

“Because you know I was given a big sword (during his inauguration), do you think that Sword is for chopping vegetables? Is it not for slashing these conmen? I will slash them for real.”

In response to the remarks made by President William Ruto, Okiya Omtatah expressed his belief that the threat was personally directed at him.

Omtatah noted that by opting to take the Housing Levy case to court, he perceived the President’s comments as a direct and targeted response to his actions.

“I am one of those who took the matter to court and that is why I am here to report this matter to the police,” the activist turned Senator politician told the Star outside Nyanchwa Police station Tuesday dawn.

He asserted his confusion over the Officer in Charge of the Police Station refusing to document the incident. Omtatah couldn’t comprehend why the OCPD declined to officially record the events that transpired at the station.

“I was given a cordial welcome by Mosocho police station officers but they sent me here. I am dismayed that the OCPD cannot accept my statement,” Omtatah told the Star.

The Senator hinted that during the Saturday event, the President referred to those opposing his leadership style as “Wakora” (meaning mischief-makers or wrongdoers).

“But I am a law-abiding citizen, in fact, more than Ruto himself,” Omtatah said.

He expressed a genuine concern, stating that he had a reason to believe that his life was now at risk following the President’s remarks.

The Senator mentioned that he was contemplating personally reporting the matter to the Inspector of Police.
