Tangatanga Legislator Accused Of Assaulting A Western Kenya Musician

The race to the 2022 general elections is gaining momentum as politician rush to form new alignments ahead of the polls.

There has been propaganda and counter accusations from either side of the political divide on social media.

The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) secretary general Edwin Sifuna has accused Kimilili member of Parliament Didmus Barasa for assault a popular western Kenyan musician earlier today.

"Steve Kay is a famous Luhyia Musician. He is a proper hustler but once the job was done, instead of a payment he received a beating from tangatanga" claimed Sifuna through a post shared on his Twitter page.

Sifuna has accused Barasa who is Rutos point man in western Kenya for taking credit for work that was not done by him. The outspoken legislator who came to fame by clinching the Kimilili parliamentary seat in 2017 is the fiercest critic of the ODM party and a staunch supporter of deputy president William Ruto.

Kenyans on Twitter were outraged by Barasa conduct with some asking him to resign while others stating that he acted on his own capacity.

There has not been any feedback from the legislators team however we will keep on following this story for more updates.
