Migori County Assembly Speaker Boaz Okoth now says he is facing intimidation from ODM Party officials ahead of the impeachment motion against Migori Governor Okoth Obado.
Okoth, who has since recorded a police statement, claims ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna accompanied by a group of youth threatened to harm him in Kisumu.
“I was attacked yesterday in the presence and in the presence of ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna and whoever was attacking my bodyguard is his brother,” said Okoth.
“They thought I was with some MCAs at the hotel. My life is in danger.”
He says his office is yet to receive the impeachment motion against Obado with ODM party saying at least 20 MCAs have signed the motion to remove the governor from office.
