ICC activist attacked as he relieved himself in a pit latrine

08 February 2016, 07:56 Arap Yego

Kitale - Renowned human rights activist, Ken Wafula is nursing injuries after he was attacked at a political rally in Kitale town, Trans-Nzoia County.

The activist who rose to fame over his links with International Criminal Court (ICC) witnesses was confronted by people said to be supporters of a certain MP as he relieved himself in a toilet. This was during a thanksgiving meeting of Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula.

“Wafula had stepped out of the meeting to go a pit latrine within the Trans-Nzoia Ford Kenya party compound when he was attacked with crude weapons. Three men grabbed him and gave him a thorough beating as they accused him of being disrespectful to an MP,” a person who witnessed the incident told journalists.

Speaking to journalists later, Kwanza MP Ferdinand Wanyonyi who had been linked to the attackers, distanced himself from the incident.

Wanyonyi, who is also the Trans-Nzoia County Ford Kenya party chairman, and Wafula have been involved in leadership wrangles, with the latter declaring himself the County party Chairman in June last year.

This is not the first time the outspoken activist has been attacked by people linked to an MP. In August 2014, he was allegedly roughed up at a popular club in Eldoret by Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi and his aides.

He reported the matter to police but no action was taken, prompting him to announce that he will find a gun legally or illegally to protect himself against an MP who is allegedly after his life.
