After his unceremonious, humiliating even, exit from the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party where he was an executive officer, Margerer Langat has revealed how much he received from party members in compensation.
Langat told a court that he was physically assaulted after a fight broke out during the now defunct CORD parliamentary group meeting in 2014. The news was awash then with images of a handful of City county reps beating him senselessly, raining on him blows and kicks as Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka just watched from the periphery.
“I was paid KSh 300,000 to withdraw an assault case against the five Nairobi MCAs and head of security at Orange House. The money was compensation for the medical expenses,” Nairobi News quoted the politician in the Tuesday, March 21 publication.
Langat had been accusations of being a Jubilee mole, leading to the dog’s beating and later ejection from the said meeting, and party.
The former Kipkelion legislator has since decamped to the Jubilee Party.
His 2014 attack was a topic of discussion in many forums as it happened at a time when was political intolerance in the Opposition was at an all time high.
On top of him being roughed up, the tires of his car were also slashed for allegedly speaking ill of ODM leadership.
His was stripped off his position even as the Orange Party leaders condemned the attack.
