Magwanga claims rivals plotting violence at NASA rally

Oyugi Magwanga has accused his opponents of planning violence at Monday’s NASA rally in Homa Bay.

The Kasipul MP and governor aspirant further claimed that his rivals plan to blame him for the chaos

Magwanga said that on Sunday, his rivals distributed several t-shirts branded ‘Team Tiacha’ to a young man paid to cause violence.

He said he has alerted the IEBC and police.

In January, the politician denied allegations that he is the commander of a militia group named ‘Tiacha’ and noted this has been his stage name since 2006.

Hell almost broke loose in Homa Bay on July 6 following revelations that the politician’s name was not among those gazetted.

But IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati assured residents Magwanga’s name will be on the ballot.
