A planned demonstration organised by Mathare MP Antony Oluoch against Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko flopped on Friday morning.
The NASA MP who was roughed up on Thursday evening at Panafric Hotel by Jubilee supporters was briefly hospitalized for checkup Thursday night and he immediately blamed Sonko for the incident although Sonko was in Machakos County during the incident.
There was drama at the Hotel on Thursday evening after some NASA allied politicians stormed and disrupted a Jubilee Party press conference.
The team, led by Oluoch and Kibera MP Ken Okoth, were angered by statements made Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen that they (NASA politicians) were waiting for him to pay for their “tea” at the Panafric Hotel.
Just after the opposition MPs had retreated after addressing a press conference at the Hotel and normalcy was returning, a group of youths came from nowhere and descended on Oluoch with kicks and blows and he was saved by the hotel’s security agents and Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja.
The jubilee MPs left the facility and later addressed another press conference at Serena Hotel where they condemned the incident, saying the opposition MPs were just interested in drama.
Here are some of the photos from Mathare showing how residents boycotted Oluoch’s anti-Sonko protest
