Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi was on Tuesday, March 17 summoned Kisii County Police Commander Jebel Munene for allegedly assaulting a female domestic worker.
The alleged assault happened during the 2019 Christmas celebrations at Maangi’s rural home in Riagongera village, Bomachoge Chache constituency.
The deputy governor presented himself to Kisii Central Police Station to record a statement following a complaint from the woman.
Maangi, who has in the last few months been on the receiving end for appearing to oppose the Building Bridges Initiative, termed the allegations as a political witch-hunt.
“No form of intimidation or interference will derail my political quest. I am a law abiding citizen and I will honour the summons. I’m being fought because of my political stand and the fight against corruption,” said Maangi, who is Deputy President William Ruto’s point man in Gusiiland.
