The former TV girl who is eying Samburu West parliamentary seat on a Jubilee ticket, was forced to cut short her interview as rowdy youth threatened to storm the station and set it ablaze if she didn’t leave.

The nominated Senator was selling her agenda to the electorates when goons believed to be sponsored by her opponent surrounded the radio station and demanded that she leaves immediately.

Lesuuda was whisked to safety by her bodyguards before Serian FM presenter eased the tension by announcing that the ‘unwanted’ guest had left the station as demanded.

“We are one community, we are looking for various political positions but we do not need any bloodshed because all of us   have followers,” Lesuuda told the Nation.
