On November 3, 2019, Etale sent a warning to their opponents in the Kibra-by elections after his party ODM wound up its public campaigns.

He stated that his party had wound up the campaigns and had declared all Hotels closed in a bid to clear out the people who had allegedly invaded their “bedroom”, Kibra.

The post received mixed reactions especially at the time when the campaigns had intensified and tension was high in some parts of the constituency.

For instance, it was said to have spread hate messages, going against the election code and ethics.

Yesterday, Etale dared Barasa to make good his threats after he threatened to repaint ODM offices in Bungoma County if they failed to return his cap that was taken away during the election fracas.
