The reporter who is based in Bungoma had travelled to Busia County to cover the rallies by Raila and other leaders allied to the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).
“The rowdy youth attacked him without provocation after they realized he works for K24. They tore off his shirt as they shouted that they do not want to be covered by a media house owned by Raila’s bitter rival President Kenyatta,” said his colleague who requested anonymity.
“Police came to his rescue from the mob who were baying for his blood and whisked him to safety at Port Victoria police station,” he added.
