Khwisero OCPD Samuel Kogo confirmed the incident happened at a public meeting.
He said they are looking for the suspected assailants.
“We can’t say what the motive was for now but we are looking for suspects,” he said.
Maloba, who was voted on a KANU ticket, passed away after a melee ensued between supporters of the two camps.
Kakamega deputy governor Ayub Savula made the announcement at a public event in the area.
"We would like to stay here longer, but we can't. Apologies for that. An MCA has just passed away in Khwisero Constituency,” he said.
