According to reports by The Star, the tycoon is said to have threatened a local politician, accusing him of scheming to block him from the DP.

The man was blocked by security officers from accessing the DP at his private residence. Bitter and feeling shortchanged, the operative is said to be plotting to cross over to opposition chief Raila Odinga’s camp in a matter of weeks.
