Kakamega gubernatorial hopeful Cleophas Malala’s mother has spoken after police and detectives from the Directors of Criminal Investigations (DCI) raided her son’s home in Mililani, Kakamega County.
According to Malala’s mother the raid was politically motivated. He went on to plead with authorities to leave her son alone now that elections period is over.
“Fernandes Barasa already won as Kakamega’s Governor, let him relax. This is unfair, you cannot torture my son like this, he is not a criminal so leave him alone,” the mother said.
She hinted that the dispute will be resolved in court.
Earlier, at 1:30 pm, police allegedly invaded Malala's residence with the intent to arrest him.
According to police sources, the former senator was wanted for assaulting politician Joseph Oyolo during the Kakamega governor election.
They found the gate to the home locked and accessed it by hacking the padlocks off. The officers both in plain clothes and uniformed from both general and DCI were around 40 in number.
A senior police officer declined to give details but said, "police officers cannot just come to your place when there's nothing".
The officers arrived in six vehicles.
