With elections just a few months away, five, to be precise, politicking is at all time high and it doesn’t help that party nominations are just weeks shy.
Two People are reported to have died while many more were injured in a fight between supporters of Ruaraka Member of Parliament TJ Kajwang and those supporting nominated Senator Elizabeth Ongoro in Mathare slums, Nairobi.
It is said flare ups erupted after Kajwang’s supporters raided a meeting presided over by Ongoro on Wednesday, March 15.
The bodies were moved to the city mortuary while the injured who are believed to be eleven, were taken to the Kenyatta National Hospital.
Ongoro has thrown her hut in the ring for the Ruaraka parliamentary seat on Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party ticket even as the incumbent Kajwang fiercely defends it.
