The doctor who conducted a post-mortem on villagers who were shot by the police at the North Mara Gold Mine has reportedly received threatening phone messages.

On May 23, Dr Grayson Nyakarungu from Mwanza - on behalf of the victims’ families - supervised a post-mortem on four out of five people who were shot by the police while attempting to invade the mine.

Speaking to The Citizen, Dr Nyakarungu said on May 26 he received a mobile phone text message which read: “Those reports are not for political consumption… stop getting involved in the matter… Tundu Lissu is using you for his personal political gain… if you don’t stop after this warning, we shall deal with you… wait to give your evidence in court but remember how Kolimba and Amina ended.”
