Gospel singer Daddy Owen has broken his silence after his brother, Rufftone alleged that he chased him with a machete after a disagrement during the 2007 elections.
Daddy Owen reacted to the same, noting that his brother’s statement was misinterpreted saying he has never lifted a panga against his brother no matter their indifferences.
“A lot has been said about my brother’s interview especially on the matter of a disagreement on political views. As he has correctly stated it was a figurative speech
“I never carried a panga and chased him at any point in my life! We did another interview yesterday where he made a disclaimer,” said Owen.
Rufftone made the allegations during an interview on NTV where he explained why he did not join ODM ahead of the August 9 General Elections.
Rufftone noted that he could not join ODM because it is characterised by hooliganism and violence, compared to UDA.
To support his argument, the singer recalled an instance where his blood brother, Daddy Owen chased him with panga during the 2007 General Elections after they disagreed.
At the time, Rufftone said he was supporting PNU while Daddy Owen was supporting ODM.
“I was born in this country in Eastlands and even in 2007, I remember my blood brother was for ODM while I was in PNU
“But when we disagreed in the morning, Daddy Owen had to run to the streets with his friends with pangas, seeking to harm me,” said Rufftone.
