I was attacked this morning -  Kandara MP Alice Wahome says as she complains bodyguard withdrawal

Kandara MP Alice Wahome on Monday said she had been attacked by unknown criminals early this morning as she was heading for an interview at NTV studios in Nairobi CBD.

Wahome said she was driving along Waiyaki Way when she was caught up in a brief traffic snarl up at the Westlands Roundabout.

She said some unknown people approached her car and chucked out her side mirror.

"This morning at around 6.15 am, I was attacked at the Westlands Roundabout. I was driving myself when these fellow rushed to my car and started hitting it and I realized they were trying to remove the side mirror of my car. I tried to frighten him but the next minute he had already run away with it."

"Of course my security team has still been withdrawn and these are some of the bad things that happen. I suppose the police need to provide security to every Kenyan because I'm sure other people have suffered the same fate," Wahome said.

The vocal MP has in the past claimed that her life was in danger over her form support for Deputy President William Ruto.

She is currently pursuing a court case where she has sued Interior CS Fred Matiang'i and Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai over the withdrawal of her bodyguards.
