ODM meeting

Tension is high in Shinyalu constituency, Kakamega County after the sudden death of an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) official.

Martin Musonye, who served as the ODM treasurers in Shinyalu, is said to have died shortly after attending a meeting.

Locals in the area claimed that Mr Musonye was poisoned by his political rivals during a high profile meeting that was held in the area.

Addressing the residents on Thursday evening, Area Member of Parliament (MP) Silverse Anami urged the residents to remain calm and allow police officers to probe the death.

Mr Anami also took issue with a section of the locals who were spreading information that Mr Musonye’s food was laced with poison.

The legislator urged residents to stop causing tension which could lead to chaos in the area until investigations were concluded.

In April 12 2016, Nairobi ODM youth official Stephen Mukabana was shot dead by suspected thugs in a robbery incident in Mihango area.

Police disclosed that Mukabana tried to help a man who was being robbed by a gang of six when he was shot in the head and chest.

Nairobi police boss Japheth Koome confirmed the incident stating Mr Mukabana was driving into his compound when he heard screams from a dark alley where a man was being robbed and went to help the victim.

“The reports we got show the deceased tried to help another robbery victim when he was shot in the head and chest. The victim was shot but survived,” Mr Koome said.
