Magerer disappointed with ODM ruling, plans court action
04 November 2014, 20:58
Nairobi - ODM Executive Director Magerer Lang'at says he is disappointed with the action taken on the perpetrators of violence against him and will take the case forward.
Lang'at was last week manhandled by a group of Members of County Assemblies in an act which he termed as inappropriate and barbaric.
The group of 10 MCA's was Tuesday fined KES 10,000 each by the party but according to the former Kipkellion MP, the punishment is too lenient.
He says that he is seriously considering taking court action on the said persons.
" The punishment meted out on the violence witnessed last week is both inappropriate and lenient. That the party can take such a stance on acts of violence is both disappointing and shocking, he said Tuesday evening.
Prior to the NEC meeting, Lang'at had said that he would consider taking the case forward if he felt that the punishment meted out was lenient.
" I will take it forward if I find the findings of the meeting inappropriate, he said.
The under-fire Lang'at was beaten last week by the MCA's for allegedly spying on the party and sending negative messages to party supporters over the running of the party.
He is said to have claimed that the party is on its death bed and that leader Raila Odinga should leave the reigns of leadership to a younger and more focused team.
The party said Tuesday that it will probe the accusations leveled against Lang'at in due course.
