Nominated MCA Dolphin Nyang’ara has now claimed that her life is in danger.
Addressing the press on Tuesday, October 3, Nyang’ara, who is fighting to keep her seat after being sued over suitability concerns, alleged that unknown people have been sending her threatening text messages.
The female politician who was nominated on a Jubilee Party under Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party said she was threatened with being thrown into River Yala if she did not withdraw her petition.
She however said she would not bow down to the threats and intimidation.
“I will not bow to threats and intimidation because they are telling me to withdraw my case in the court of appeal so I can live in peace. That is the message they are passing to me,
“My body is going to be found in Yala River, and this thing is really stressing me. One number has been confirmed, and I gave it to the police. The other line is a Telcom network subscriber and is unknown to me,” narrated distressed Nyang’ara.
The youthful politician who landed in court over her academic qualifications accused her political nemeses claiming she has no known academic record and should not be rewarded by the party.
However, the MCA dismissed the allegations and indicated that she studied General Agriculture and Human Resource Management at Pwani and Nairobi Universities.
Among those protesting her nomination include Mitchell Kemuma.
In the tribunal, Kemuma argued that Nyang’ara is a resident of Kahawa Wendani ward and a voter in Kiambu County, and should not represent the women of Nyamira County.
In January 2023, a Nyamira court nullified the nomination of Dolphin Nyangara and directed that Mitchell Kemuma be gazetted as a Member of the County Assembly under the gender top-up category.
