Kimilili MP-elect Didmus Barasa has spoken to the media explaining the circumstances that let to the fatal shooting of one of his opponent's aides, Brian Olunga.

Barasa said that he had been in Nairobi when he made aware that security officers were looking for him.

He stated that there had been incidences of insecurity and gunshots in Kimilili area before the polls and he too had been a victim, denying reports that he shot Olunga.

I drove all the way from Nairobi to this place and I am ready to corporate with the police so that I can also know what killed that young man.

Before Sunday night at around 6pm my private bodyguard was attacked very badly, he was in a coma for three days and on the same night I survived an assassination attempt a matter which the police are aware of because there were gunshots around that place," Barasa spoke.

He added that when the shooting occurred on Tuesday, there were other people with guns as well, including his competitor and the police officer who was manning that polling station.

"We will also be making applications that all those firearms that were there be subjected to forensic investigations, anyway I will have my day in court,” he said.

The politician denied that he had not issued written permission to anyone to pick his IEBC certificate on his behalf and had physically collected it.
