Peter Salasya grilled by DCI for making death threats to Kakamega Magistrate Gladys Kiama

Peter Salasya, the Mumias East member of parliament, was questioned by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Monday.
This came after he turned himself in to be questioned at the Kakamega police station.
On December 4, Salasya was released from custody after a two-hour interrogation and Ksh. 20,000 police bail.
DCI officers launched a manhunt in response to the legislator’s alleged threats to assassinate Kakamega Magistrate Gladys Kiama, for which he was sought.
The member of Parliament allegedly endangered the magistrate’s life, according to a report she submitted at the station. The magistrate oversees the Small Claims Court.

This was the outcome of her choice to have Salasya pay back a loan owed to businessman Robert Lutta in the amount of 50,000 Kenyan Shillings.
The businessman claimed to have given the MP a loan on December 13 of the previous year, and he filed a case to get the money back through a KCB bank account.
The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) and the Kenya Magistrates and Judges Association (KMJA), among other institutions, have denounced Salasya and asked the DCI to look into the claims as soon as possible.
