Kenya: Kisumu Chief Fears Attack

KISUMU Infrastructure executive Vincent K'Odera has expressed concern that his life is in danger following his push for demolition of illegal structures in the county.

K'Odera alleged that a group dubbed 'American Marines' have threatened to stop the ongoing demolition of the structures. "The group claim that I was destroying their property and must deal with me firmly," he said. He was speaking to the Star on the phone yesterday. K'Odera said the group told his close allies to ask him to stop destroying their property.
