Wanjigi urged his party to exercise democracy and give him the right to speak his mind even when they do not agree with his sentiments.

“It is a sad day for democracy in this party. You may not like my message, but you must defend my right to say it

“I can assure you that there is no interference from outside of ODM in what happened. I also urge the security agencies to take up this matter,” Wanjigi stated.

Speaking on the same, Director of Campaigns and Minority Whip in the National Assembly Junet Mohammed condemned the incident saying sponsors of political chaos in Migori are well-known, adding that he had been a victim.

“As a leader in Migori County, I take great exception to the incident where a political event was disrupted

“We have worked hard to create an environment where everyone can sell their policies across the Country. This was the basis of the handshake,” he wrote.

On the other hand, ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna disclosed that his office had contacted their colleagues in Migori to get a full brief of what had transpired.
