Injury Reported as Armed Goons Raid Okiya Omtatah’s Rural Home

A group of unknown people on the morning of Wednesday, March 3, raided and attacked people at Busia Senator Okiya Omtatah’s home in Kwang’amor Village, Busia County. 

Speaking to Gossipa2z.com in a phone interview, Omtatah noted that he was not at home at the time, as he had traveled to Nairobi on Tuesday evening

“I was told at around 3:00 am by my brother, who I stay in the same compound with, that his wife was accosted by a group of men who demanded to know where I was,” Omtatah stated. 

“They beat her up, and kept pacing around the compound shouting they will kill her.”

Omtatah further noted that the men assaulted his brother’s wife demanding the Senator’s whereabouts. 

The incident, which occurred in the wee hours of the morning, left the sister-in-law nursing with major tissue injuries.

She was subsequently rushed to a local mission hospital where she was treated and discharged. 

The doctors recommended a further check-up on Thursday. 

“They did not steal or damage anything in the compound, but the police are on the case to know what exactly happened,” Omtatah added. 

On March 22, the Activist survived yet another attack after a group of armed goons trailed his car while he was leaving the court premises in Busia

The Senator was forced to seek refuge at Busia Agricultural Training College (ATC) which is heavily guarded by Administration Police, after youths from the trailing vehicle started pelting stones at him. 

“I was not injured, they only damaged the vehicle, Probox, which has a strong body and incurred minor dents. The stones did not hit the windows,” Omtatah noted at the time.
