‘’Drama ensued at Mumbi area in Githurai Kimbo when supporters of nominated MP Isaac Mwaura and Ruiru Parliamentary aspirant Simon King’ara clashed. Mr. King’ara had built a shed that is to be used by Bodaboda operators in the area. So, on Tuesday evening he went to launch the project. When MP Mwaura got wind that Mr. King’ara was at Mumbi area, he went there too, hoping to politically ride on the launch of a project that was not really his.’’Thuranira said in a phone interview with TUKO.co.ke.

‘’When supporters of King’ara spotted Mwaura and his team, confrontations ensued between them, resulting in stones being pelted at either camp by the supporters of each. I think a stone struck Mwaura on the ear, hence the bruise. I can confirm that there was no bullet used by the camp which was protesting Mwaura’s presence at the Mumbi event. ‘’Thuranira added.
