Mwangi who was in US in January had left his family behind after complaining about unspecified death threats from Kenya.

In a long Facebook post before leaving for Kenya, he said that he had been warned not to go back to Kenya as there were people waiting to kill him.

“My life has been haunted by all kinds of threats. Some close friends know about the intimidation that I receive, but I have always been reluctant to go public about them. I did not want to ever be the boy who cried wolf.”

Upon his return to Kenya, he recorded a statement at the Central Police Station while accompanied by former Supreme Court Justice Willie Mutunga.
