Mariga Says He will not Be Intimidated After He Was Allegedly Attacked And Arm Broken

McDonald Mariga, a footballer-turned-politician, says he will not be intimidated by those who he claims are trying to derail his parliamentary ambitions in Kibera.

This comes after goons allegedly disrupted his rally on Monday and assaulted him, fracturing his arm. "You see, they've broken my hand, but they're not going to frighten me," Mr. Mariga said in an online video.

Mariga, who is running for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party in the August elections, blamed opposing politicians for the alleged attack.

"We've been running peaceful campaigns here," he continued, "but some politicians are sending young people to hurt me."

Mariga also added that he had filed a police report to ensure that the offenders were brought to justice.

"If they think hitting me and my followers would scare me, they are wrong," he continued. We'll work even harder throughout the campaign, and we've set our sights on the prize." "This isn't the Kibra we're looking for."

Following the death of Ken Okoth, Mariga ran for the Kibra seat in the 2019 by-elections. This year, he'll be competing against Okoth and old teacher Paul Orero.
