In December 2018, Siaya MCA Winnie Otieno claimed that the MP had hired goons to attack her on a Friday night.

County Police Commander Ambrose Mwawaka on Saturday said they launched a probe after the member of county assembly filed a report at Siaya Police Station.

The MCA claimed that armed people accosted her as she left Manicaland Hotel in Malanga, Alego, where she attended the annual Kuon Festival hosted by the Siaya Political Forum.

There were four of us in the car when youths emerged from a nearby thicket and stoned our vehicle. We were lucky that they got scared by another car's departure from the hotel. They disappeared into the thicket,” Ms Otieno said.

Speaking on the matter, Mr Mwawaka confirmed that the MCA had recorded the statement vide OB: 4/29/12/2018.

The OCS is on the matter ...we shall get to its root cause. It is not the first incident we have heard about the MP,” the County Police Commander said.

Sometime back we launched a crackdown on the youth so they disappeared. We are following leads that some of them may be from Ruaraka in Nairobi and that they are hired to cause chaos here,” he added.
