Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa was caught on video slapping an election official during voting at the by-election in Matungu Constituency, Bungoma County on Thursday morning.
In the video capturing the incident, the IEBC agent was heard defending himself saying that he was following instructions when a slap landed on his face before even finishing his statement.
Echesa is seen lecturing the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission official accusing him of chasing one of their agents out of the Bulonga polling station.
“Our agents are outside the polling station, my friend. You cannot chase our agents outside. Why are you chasing them outside? Uliambiwa by who?” (Who instructed you?), thundered Echesa before slapping the election official.
