A politician in Kisii running for the Member of County Assembly (MCA) for Bombaba Borabu ward in Kisii County under the ODM party has lost his life in unclear circumstances.

The aspirant who is known as Thomas Okari succumbed to injuries he sustained following a late-night attack in his house by unknown assailants.

Okari traveled from Nairobi to his remote home on Sunday evening to prepare for the nominations set on Thursday, April 7.

According to a relative, the aspiring MCA went to his room to rest . Shortly afterwards, his nephew, who was still in the house, was awakened by his uncle’s cries for aid as he was attacked by the armed men.

Okari was hit in the head with a panga before his assailants fled through the house’s back door. He was later pronounced dead after being rushed to a local hospital in Kisii.
