Ugenya politicians decry rising cases of political animosity
Police in Ugenya Sub County have been asked to move with speed and stop the emerging cases of political hooliganism in the region ahead of August 8 General Election.
Ugenya Member of Parliament, David Ochieng’s campaign manager, Mr. Omondi Gero has decried the emerging cases of attacks and threats from their opponents during campaigns, and wants the police to move with haste and contain the situation.
Mr. Gero, who was speaking with reference to an incident where one of their campaigners, Joseph Olale, was allegedly attacked at a political rally in Sega town, added that many of their youth have been attacked and their campaign materials destroyed.
He wants the police to reign on such errant characters to contain the situation before it gets out of hand.
The campaign manager was flanked by Joseph Olale who narrated how he was attacked by their opponents’ supporter armed with a knife during a campaign rally over the weekend.
Olale, who has since recorded a statement at Sega police station, said that he now feels that his life is threatened and equally pleaded for speedy investigations so that action is taken against those orchestrating the violence.
