Jubilee party candidate in the Kibra by election McDonald Mariga has broken his silence after his campaign team was attacked and roughed up in Kibra on Saturday, 12 October 2019.

Revealing his nasty side, the soft-spoken footballer took a swipe at ODM, blaming his rivals for the violence that rocked Kibra after his team was allegedly caught in the act with Ksh 10 million for allegedly buying voters’ ID cards.

Taking to Facebook, the sportsman had nbo kind words for his rivalling, warning his competitors to refrain from violence, maintaining that each candidate has a right to campaign in the constituency in a bid to win the 07 November 2019 election.

"I'm thrilled as the rally was successful even though violence emerged against our supporters by criminals from another party that claims that Kibra is their bedroom," Mariga wrote.

Jubilee party comes clean on the damning allegations on Ksh 10 Million

Saturday (12 Oct 2019) saw Mariga come face to face with the ugly side of politics after irate youth attacked his convoy, pelting it with stones.

A Toyota Prado branded with Mariga’s portrait was left badly damaged after irate youth seized it and went ahead to set its tyres ablaze next to a billboard bearing Mariga’s image.

Jubilee Head of Communication boss Albert Mwemusi was quotted by a section of the press dismissing the allegations and condemning the incident.

"We (Jubilee) condemn the incident and assure our members that the incident shall be keenly investigated. I have liaised with Party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju and we are seeking more information from the ground.

The Ksh 10 million allegations is nothing but petty lies. No one can walk around with such amount of money. Those are unsensational reports out to tarnish our reputation." Mwemusi said.
