Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyiyi’s communications officer Peter Ochieng was murdered by unknown assailants in Bungoma town.
Peter Ochieng, alias storm was killed on Friday night, his body discovered at around 11.00 PM.
He was found lying in a pool of blood at sunrise estate, with deep cuts on his head and hands.
According to a report on Citizen TV, Ochieng had just finalized a meeting with the legislator and headed home on a Boda Boda.
“I urge the police to get to the root of this. We have leads, the boda boda guy who was to take storm home was paid via Mpesa,
“They should also investigate the link between storm’s death and FORD-Kenya politics,” Wafula Wamunyinyi said.
The death of Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyiyi’s aide comes amid wrangles in the FORD-Kenya party.
There has been a heated debate on who is the legal party leader of FORD Kenya between Wafula Wamunyinyi and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula.
Recently, the Wamunyiyi-led faction trashed Moses Wetangula’s decision to walk out of the NASA coalition, terming it as non-official.
They said Wetangula’s decision was null and void since other FORD-Kenya members were not involved.
“Stop engaging other parties masquerading as the official leader of the party. We’d like other parties to know that anything they are doing with Wetang’ula is in a non-official capacity,” the Kanduyi MP said.
Tongaren MP Eseli Simiyu challenged Wetangula to pick an election date to select the Party’s leadership.
