Police officers armed with guns and teargas canisters have today raided the home of Kisii Deputy governor Joash Maangi's home after they were informed that there was an ongoing meeting which is against the ministry of health's guidelines.
They however found no meeting ongoing. The deputy governor took them around the residence and they confirmed there was no meeting.
After being contacted by local media houses, Maangi argued that his association with the deputy president was the reason behind his troubles.
The raid comes just a day after a similar one occured, where police allegedly arrested 10 people after they were found holding a meeting, Maangi however claimed that the meeting strictly adhered to the guidelines set by the ministry of health.
Maangi is among a few leaders from the larger Nyanza region who have stood firm behind the deputy president, he has maintained that he will not back down despite the intimidation. Video here: https://youtu.be/HAplqys5odE
