Kisumu County Commissioner Josephine Ouko confirmed that investigations had been initiated after Alai recorded a statement outlining the event, and police officers were on their way to investigate the motivation behind the alleged attack.

Reports indicate that the altercation was due to a tweet by Alai about defilement charges. Ojwang was reportedly enraged by the tweet, leading to the spat between the two lawmakers. Alai had asked the detectives and Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyong’o to look into the defilement charges against Ojwang while filing the statement with the police.

It is not clear whether any arrests have been made in connection with the incident, and the investigation is ongoing.
