Juja member of parliament Francis Munyua Waititu, popularly known as Wakapee, has been linked to a fresh sex scandal, barely six months after he quietly settled another one.
A 25-year-old Mpesa attendant on Tuesday night reported to the Kasarani police station that she had received death threats after she declined a proposal by the MP that she procures an abortion.
Martha Wanjiru Wahome told the police she had received the threats on July 29, just hours after she rejected a proposal by the MP to terminate her now four months’ pregnancy.
Wanjiru said she had received calls and text messages warning her that the Mungiki would attack her if she failed to do “as agreed with mheshimiwa”.
The woman claims the MP impregnated her but fled after she informed him that she was pregnant.
Wanjiru told investigators that the caller, who hid the mobile phone number, warned her of dire consequences if she failed to procure an abortion.
She said the caller was not the MP and that he identified himself as a member of the Mungiki sect.
She said that the the same day, Wakapee had sent her Sh20,000 through Mpesa for the abortion but she declined.
Yesterday, Wanjiru in an interview with The Star maintained that she would not abort but was determined to have the MP take care of their baby once she gives birth next January.
She has since moved housed after receiving the death threats and recorded a statement at the Kasarani CID offices on Tuesday, detailing her 13-month secret love life with the MP.
She revealed that she met the MP at a bus stop on Thika Road when the MP who was driving a Prado stopped and introduced himself as a doctor from Kenyatta National Hospital.
They exchanged numbers and hence the start of their relationship during which the MP promised to marry Wanjiru as a second wife and visit her rural home in November. All was well until she became pregnant.
Yesterday, the MP was unavailable for comment. He texted the Star, saying that he was in Parliament.
