Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has been attacked by rowdy youths at Mayoni area while coming from the opening ceremony of Fafa Medical School in Matungu, Kakamega.
A number of people were reported to be injured in the fracas which took the intervention of Malala’s security detail to disperse the youths.
Crew from the legislator’s security detail were forced to shoot in the air as some of Malala’s supporters retaliated. The senator’s vehicle’s wind screen was smashed but no one nursed major injuries.

“Some leaders from Mumias are using their might to make sure industries from this region fall,” said Malala, who drove to Mumias Police Station.
