As political temperatures heat up in the country ahead of the August nineth elections, UDA parliamentary candidate for Kibra constituency McDonald Mariga has today been attacked while in Campaign trail in Kibra.
According to a video published by Nation Media Group's Nairobi News, the former Kenyan iternational footballer who also vied for the Kibra parliamentary seat byelection in 2019 claimed that one of his cars was vandalized and some women supporters were sexually assaulted.
“We’ve been doing peaceful campaigns here, but there are some ODM and Azimio politicians who are sending young people to injure me. I have made a report to the police station and we will ensure these people are arrested and jailed.” Mariga said in the video, adding that the goons had broken his arm but he will continue campaigning.
He urged the Kibra people to exercise tollerance during campaign period, asking them to denounce violence.
