Kanduyi Member of Parliament Wafula Wamunyinyi has spoken about the mysterious murder of his communications manager.
Speaking in a press, Wamunyinyi expressed his shock following the murder of Peter Ochieng popularly known as Storm by unknown assailants.
The Kanduyi lawmaker narrated that his Communications Assistant was to be dropped home by a boda boda rider. However, since he did not have the money, his driver paid for him using M-pesa to the boda boda rider whose name was identified as Samuel Wafula.
The MP explained that the duo left him at the hotel for home only to received a call an hour later from his associate informing him that Storm had been attacked.
“I rushed to the scene and I found he (Storm) had been mutilated badly. He was bleeding and blood was oozing from all parts of his body. He had deep cuts on his head and his arm was cut off,” Wamunyinyi stated.
Wamunyinyi claimed that the killing of his aide was not a robbery but political and urged the police to probe into the murder case.
“The way he was mutilated, the attackers had no intention of leaving him alive, they wanted to kill him and we condemn this in the strongest terms. We are calling on the police to investigate this murder and arrest the culprits,” Wamunyinyi stated.
“We have been engaged in political wrangles and Storm had been very instrumental in the communication department of our faction in Ford Kenya where we have been having troubles with the party leadership. He has been sharing our statements,” he added.
Speaking on Saturday, August 7, 2021 Bungoma Sub County Commander, Benjamin Kiwele, confirmed the death of the musician. He said that the police have began investigations on the matter.
“We are following leads from the person who paid for his boda boda. He has the mobile money payment number he sent the money to and investigations are now ongoing,” Kiwele stated.
