UDA Summons 3 Politicians After Nomination Materials Set Ablaze in Embu

UDA poll materials set ablaze

The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party has summoned three politicians over destruction of polling materials in Embu county.

In an incident reported on Wednesday, rowdy youths set ablaze ballot papers and other materials that were being ferried to the region ahead of today’s nomination exercise.

Witnesses said the goons tracked the lorry that was carrying the materials from Mbeere South to Izaak Walton Hotel where they pillaged the material and set it ablaze.

Those summoned in connection with the violence are former Kamukunji Member of Parliament and Embu senatorial aspirant Norman Nyaga,  nominated MCA Margaret Lorna Kariuki and John Muchiri Nyaga.

The party said it has received video evidence linking the politicians to the incident.

The trio was ordered to appear before the party’s disciplinary committee at Hustler Centre in Nairobi, on Saturday, April 16.
