Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala on Friday narrowly escaped death following a shootout that happened at Mayoni in Matungu, Kakamega County.
Chaos erupted after rival supporters of the Senator and those alleged to be of Sports CS Rashid Echesa clashed.
At least three people were seriously injured in the scuffle and two others feared dead.
It is reported that the attackers, believed to be CS Echesa’s supporters, attacked the Senators convoy as he was on his way to attend an event at the region.
However, the aim of the attack is still unknown.
Posting on his Twitter the CS dismissed reports by some media houses that he was also at the scene.
In his post, he exclaimed: “Dear Kenyans, kindly ignore the fake news alleging my involvement in a scuffle with my Brother Senator Cleophas Malala today in Kakamega County where two people are feared dead.
“The life of every Kenyan deserves to be respected. Let us maintain peace and build our Country Kenya,” the CS concluded.
