ODM MCAs ROUGH UP MAGERER



Rowdy youth ejected ODM Executive Director Magerer Langat from Orange House during a parliamentary group meeting Thursday.
The youth, some said to be MCAs, stormed the meeting venue where Cord was receiving referendum updates from the Committee of Experts and pulled Magerer out of his seat.
Said to be about 100 in number, they accused Langat of being a Jubilee mole in the party.
They roughed him up and deflated his Toyota Prado car tyres as Cord leader Raila Odinga and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka watched from a distance.
Magerer took off to save his skin as the lynch mob continued to rough him up. He was saved by police officers in a car that was passing by.
ODM Secretary General Anyang' Nyong'o condemned the attack on the leader and said the party will investigate the matter.
More than twenty MPs from both Cord and Jubilee have condemned the attack on Magerer during a press conference at Parliament building. The MPs called for increased security for the besieged ODM leader.
