  • Lengo Karisa Mudzomba, the infamous man who whipped former Prime Minister Raila Odinga back in 2014 on Wednesday, August 19, asked for a formal handshake as a sign of forgiveness.

    Despite being forgiven by Odinga and Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya who he also canned, Mudzomba made a fresh appeal to the two leaders.

    "I would urge them to make time from their busy schedule and visit me, I would really be happy as someone who was born today," he urged.

    After the incident back in 2014, Mudzomba was forced to flee his home in Kaloleni and sought refuge at his brother's residence in Vipingo and now calls the place home.

    He still maintains that he was not paid to whip the two leaders but feared for his life after facing threats from residents of Kaloleni. 

    "I was from taking tea and went to the event. I still do not know how I ended up whipping them, I just remember being pushed to the ground.

    "I was accused of drinking and taking hard drugs by the locals who demanded answers to why I canned Raila," he explained.

    His brother claims that he has been asking for a handshake with the two leaders to mend bridges as it would keep him at peace.

    Mudzomba is hesitant to reveal the whereabouts of the stick he used to whip the two leaders as he claims it was a sign of bad luck.

    The event where the bizarre incident happened, was part of the then-Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (ODM) push for a referendum that was staged in Kinango, Kwale County.

    During the time, unverified reports emerged that Mudzomba was unhappy after seeing the ODM Party Leader dancing with his wife 'suggestively'.
