Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura and Rarieda Member of Parliament Otiende Amollo on Thursday morning locked horns over the chaos witnessed on Wednesday during a political rally led by ODM leader Raila Odinga in Githurai.
Appearing on Citizen TV’s Day Break show, Mwaura and Amollo traded accusations on who was responsible for the violent incident that saw hired goons temporarily disrupt Odinga’s function.
MP Otiende Amollo claimed that Senator Mwaura personally and together with others orchestrated the violence, calling for legal action to be taken against him.
“There is evidence that Isaac Mwaura personally and with others organized that violence. I have even seen clips of what he actually said to try and incite both traders and the youth against the visit by Raila Odinga. This kind of intolerance should not just be left just for political discussion. It is something that must be visited by the appropriate criminal sanctions against the inciters,” said the Rarieda MP.
On his part, the nominated senator alleged that the goons who caused chaos at the Githurai rally were hired from the nearby Baba Dogo area by ODM MPs Babu Owino and TJ Kajwang.
Mwaura claimed that the riots were a smokescreen created by the ODM leaders so that their political rivals would be blamed for the incident.
