Raila Death Threats Alarms ODM
A sensational claim has been made by Jakoyo Midiwo of a plot to kill Prime Minister, Raila Odinga. The plot - which is located in Syokimau - has been tweeting hilarious tweets that have elicited reactions like iDie, Dead, cremate, #JumpsOffBalcony and #SwallowsGrenade have caused anxiety that the Prime minister's life might be in danger.
"We at ODM have noted with a lot of concern that there is a plot in syokimau that had as many as 140 characters at its disposal that has been plotting on a graph using scatter dots on how to kill Our Beloved Prime Minister." The irate MP quipped.
"This is unacceptable and we have been constantly refreshing the timeline to identify these characters. Our people have been noting with a lot of concern that these tweets that are accompanied by the #iDie and #Dead words are repeated over and over in a coded word comprising the letters RT. Our team has deciphered that these words may mean Raila Tutaua or Raila Tutaondoa"
These threats have lead to the summoning of the MP by the CID to record a statement. The MP has been ordered to follow the CID using the handle @safaricomltd which is their undercover name on twitter.
"We request the MP to follow us and send us a Direct Message about his claim. It is a serious claim and we will take it with the absolute seriousness it deserves," said a spokesman from the CID headquarters.
"This means we will desist from tweeting via text while talking to the MP and other persons involved in the investigations and we request the MP to do the same to ensure we don't have a security breach through leaked DMs"
The prime minister could not be reached for comments. All attempts to tweet him yielded no fruits because he was offline. This has led to suspicions that he may actually be refusing to tweet in a bid to make KOT (Kenyans On Twitter) think that he has a life.
