Was Esther Passaris Attacked last evening?
She has narrated the ordeal on Twitter.
Taking the shocking revelation to Twitter, the ODM lawmaker said that she was on her way back to the city when a group of “youth hoped on bodaboda, three to four on each, and chased my car all in the way into the City.”
“On my way out, the rowdy youths hoped on bodaboda, three to four on each, and chased my car all in the way into the City in large convoy that posed a danger to other road users.
“It's high time we address the culture of handouts and its long-term effects on our youth,” she said.
She added: “But I was adamant that I would not give any money and that our activities would go on as planned. To be fair, only a few youths have made a habit out of this, making the rest look bad. The turn-out was incredible and I enjoyed interacting with the local residents.”
Warned of attack
Ms Passaris had been warned of the planned attack by her security team, but defied and went on to visit Dagoretti North for a civic education event.
Earlier, the youths had warned that if Passaris would not give them handouts after the event they would unleash fury on her, and indeed dozens of them chased her using bodabodas.
The youths who were riding in threes and fours per motorcycle chased the convoy all the way into the city and the woman representative managed to get a photo of them.
