The embattled Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala is set to lose his position as deputy minority leader in the senate.
Malala was elected as a senator on an ANC ticket but his relationship with ODM leader Raila Odinga saw him land the lucrative position that earns occupant heavy allowances and added security.
Last week, Malala while before the senate security committee broke into tears claiming his life was in danger.
He accused the Directorate of Criminal Investigations as being out to assassinate him. Director George Kinoti dismissed the allegation as comedy and out to win sympathy.
According to reports by Weekly Citizen, ever since he fell out with Raila in matters relating to revenue sharing, Malala is worried about losing the plum senate slot.
Already, ODM is said to be shopping for a person to replace Malala in the senate.
Initially, the plan was to have Vihiga senator George Khaniri but ODM strategists want it to land in the hands of one of their own senators.
The position is headed to Coast in Raila’s effort to consolidate his now rebellious Coast vote bloc.
The assassination squad, according to Malala, is headed by Sergeant Kiprop alias Rop and Benedict Bii alias Arap Bii.
In a letter to police boss Hillary Mutyambai and Kinoti and copied to Senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka, Attorney General Paul Kihara and CS Fred Matiang’i, Malala, through Malala and Company Advocates alleged a secret and specialised squad has been formed to eliminate him.
“We are aware that a secret and specialized squad of the Special Service Unit (SSU) has been recently formed with express instructions to “keep an eye on/eliminate Senator Cleophas Wakhungu Malala,” reads the letter.
The letter goes on to list five secret officers of the “Bravo Zulu Yankee” squad, a vehicle they have been assigned together with the number plate and guns they intend to use to kill him.
“What is unnervingly clear is that a squad of assassin policemen has been recently formed from within the elite unit and specifically tasked to assassinate or eliminate our client,” reads the letter.
“This squad of police assassins assigned to eliminate our client has been given a Total petrol station fuel card for use during their operation to track down and eliminate Hon Senator Cleophas Malala,” the letter further states
