Former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama's rally briefly turned chaotic after three protestors were assaulted on Thursday, October 1 in Tala, Machakos county.
The rally was also attended by former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale as they addressed residents of Tala town.
Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, Muthama revealed that three proteststors attempted to disrupt the gathering but were descended upon by his followers.Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale carries stones to defend himself in Kibera on November 7, 2019 during Kibra By-elections.
"It was a rally at my home town and three goons tried to disrupt the meeting. However, my followers acted and chased them from the meeting.
"Unfortunately, the matter got out of hand and a few followers roughed them up for rudely interrupting a peaceful meeting," stated Muthama.
According to reports, Khalwale and Muthama were heckled at his home town by residents for trying to sell the 'hustler' narrative to Tala residents.
Muthama, however, allayed the rumours claiming that they were not chased away from the town, terming the reports as rumours.
Reports also indicate that the duo was inspecting a church in Tala, where Deputy President William Ruto is expected to visit.
Khalwale hit out at the false reports being circulated about the rally and asked leaders to desist from spreading messages of violence.
"We are safe and no one disrupted us. We were in Tala, Machakos County. This is the hometown of Muthama similar to mine in Malinya, Kakamega.
"We condemn those who try to peddle rumours and urge every politician to preach peace," said the former Kakamega Senator.
Ruto's allies held a meeting at Jubilee headquarters in Pangani, Nairobi concurrently with Kandara MP Alice Wahome stating that Jubilee MPs were reuniting to end the wrangles and work together.
