Rowdy youths cut short Ms Naisula live on air and force her to flee for her life

youths storm Serian Fm premises and demand Ms Naisula stop addressing the locals or else they burn down the premises.

 

This is after a group of rowdy youths stormed Serian Radio, 88.9FM  premises and demanded she stopped addressing the locals or else they will burn down the premises.

The FM radio based in Maralal town was forced off air after the youths overpowered the legislator’s bodyguards and gained access to the media house premises where they proceeded to banging the studio door where the interview was being conducted.

The rowdy youths only left after Ms Naisula had left the radio station where she went and reported the matter to Maralal police station.

In her statement, the senator said she was in the middle of mobilising Samburus to register as voters  ahead of August 4 general election, before she was rudely interrupted by the rowdy youths

Samburu central district criminal investigations officer, James Murui, confirmed the Senator had reported the incident that took place at about 9.30pm.

Murui said they had reports that a vehicle dropped the group at the station.

"We have the registration number of the vehicle. Investigations are underway...we shall unveil the truth in due time," he said as quoted by a local daily.

Lesuuda after recording her statement at Maralal police station condemned the act and insisted every politician had the right to go about their affairs.

"Every politician has his or her own supporters. They should restrain and tame their supporters so they don't engage in unnecessary fights that can lead to bloodshed," she said.

The Nominated Senator, who is eyeing the Samburu West parliamentary seat, blamed her political opponents for the incident claiming they had the sent the youths.
