The matatu was destroyed during CORD’s anti-IEBC protests, prompting her and other matatu owners to stage demos outside Raila Odinga’s office where they dumped the matatu wreck.

Raila however accused Jubilee of sponsoring the youth who burnt the demo as well as the subsequent demo against CORD, Citizen Digital reports.
