Rivals torch aspirant's homestead

11 February 2013, 11:48 Steve Wambugu

An Aspirant contesting for Bahati Ward representative seat in Nakuru County was on Saturday counting her losses after unknown people set ablaze part of her homestead in broad daylight.

Narrating her ordeal to the media, Ester Kiruma said the youths torched part of her wooden cow shade but at that time there were no cows at the shade.

She added that two children who were playing at the road side reportedly saw a group of around 4 men jump over her perimeter wall and set the cow shade on fire.

Efforts by the neighbors to put off the fire bore no fruits as the fire was fierce and hard to control.

The aspirant blamed her political opponents for the incident saying she will continue with her quest to contest for Bahati ward representative.

“This must be my fellow political opponents who are sensing defeat and now want to intimidate me but I am not going to drop my quest to contesting for Bahati Ward representative,” said the politician.

Kiruma said the incident as an illustration of overcrowded politics from politicians who are afraid of change.

She however urged the security forces to tighten up security ahead of the forth coming elections.
