A Kikuyu young woman almost lost her life after she was caught in the middle of chaos that resulted from the visit of Deputy President William Ruto who had a fundraiser to grace in Murang’a County.
The defaced young lady who appeared to be in her early twenties confessed having received money from a top politician whom she named as Sabina Chege through a proxy she identified as Caroline Njeri so as to stop William Ruto from landing in the area.
She alleged that MP Sabina sponsored them each with sh 1000 to help barricade roads which the DP was supposed to use.
“Sisi tuliambiwa na Carolyne Njeri nafikiri alitumwa na Sabina,” she said as blood oozed from her left side of the head.
Later on, Tangatanga faction launched a scathing attack on their rivals accusing them of using retrogressive ways to do their politics.
First to speak on the unfortunate events is MP Caleb Kositany who not only condemned the unfortunate clashes but also termed them ‘old school’ in nature.
He took the opportunity to ask their rivals not to incite locals against the deputy president because this may create a lot more cracks in the country.
“Sponsored violence by Kieleweke in Muranga this is very old school. It’s a church function for heaven’s sake, they want to evict us from church too,” he said.
His sentiments were echoed by Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga who said this will not stop the DP from touring the country and asked police to fast-track arresting the suspects.
“They’ve now sponsored violence at Kenol, Muranga to frustrate DP Ruto’s visit to the area. To what extent is this axis of evil-doers willing to go to perpetuate their evil schemes?” she said.
However, the two were quickly answered back by Senator Irungu Kang’ata who turned the blame on DP Ruto saying he was staging an early ‘power grab’.
“Stop this power struggle, it’s causing the Nation too much trouble. Endangering lives of innocent ones. “Bunny (Power strugglers). Passed Kenol on my way to church in Muranga. Saw chaos among the youth ahead of some political visit. We heed HE advise and work for the people first,” Kang’ata argued.
Rowdy youth barricaded the Kenol-Muranga corridor paralyzing transportation on the road what local administration led by Murang’a South DCC Mawira Munganai confirmed saying one person had lost life.
So they were to be paid 1000 bob by an elected leader to stop the Deputy President from accessing the church in muranga #WajingaNyinyi pic.twitter.com/MCuYs1oucQ
