ODM to probe Lang'at beating

31 October 2014, 09:24 William Korir

Nairobi - The Orange Democratic Movement ODM will probe the beating of Executive Director Magerer Lang'at.

Lang'at was beaten up by party supporters in what is a continuation of the internal wrangles facing the Orange party.

The former Kipkelion MP, was kicked out of a parliamentary group meeting Thursday at Orange House Nairobi, for comments he allegedly made purporting to the demise of the party earlier in the week.

He was on the record as saying in Nakuru Tuesday that the party is dead and needs to be rejuvenated. He also insinuated that party leader Raila Odinga needs to take a back seat from affairs to help the party re-brand.

But his sentiments were met with derision Thursday, when he was pulled out of the group meeting by Nairobi MCA's who claimed he was a Jubilee coalition mole and roughed up.

And following the violence, the party says it will probe the genesis of the violence and seek a way forward from the matter.

Acting party Secretary General Prof Anyang Nyon'go, says that the party will probe the violence that took place and take action against the perpetrators.

" We condemn the violence that has taken place in our midst today and promise to probe and take complete charge of the matter as well as reprimand those that will be found to have organized it," Nyong'o said in the aftermath of the trouble.

Chief suspect will be Nairobi County Majority leader Elias Otieno who led the roughing up of Lang'at and was unapologetic when asked about his deeds.

When Nyong'o was asked about Otieno's role in the drama, he reserved his comments for later.

" Let us complete investigations then I will speak," he said.

Lang'at is yet to comment on the matter but is expected to speak on the incident in the coming days.
