@IEBCKenya and @SpeakerJBMuturi should take action against this goons. Political violence is a crime in Kenya. These ODM sycophants have often used words and actions that breed chaos but it seems @dkmaraga and his judiciary are bent to protecting them.

Kenyans on social media have indicted Simba Arati following his order for the dismissal of a colleague by the rowdy youths.
The Kibera by-elections were marked by several vicious scenes. During the campaigns, a white car from Imran Okoth`s convoy ran over a man who later succumbed to injuries.
Again, Jubilee candidate McDonald Mariga and former Kakamega Boni Khalwale were chased from various polling centres in the City slum.
