Unknown attackers on Saturday night raided the home of Migori County ODM Party chairman Philip Makabong’o and torched two of his vehicles.

The two vehicles which were burned inside the party official’s homestead are a Toyota Sprinter and a Subaru.

The incident reportedly happened while Makabong’o’s family was asleep.


Rongo sub-county Police Commander Peter Kirui confirmed the incident, saying that they are yet to make any arrests but are pursuing all possible leads.

“Mr Makabongo was awakened by an explosion outside his house, and when he went outside he found the two motor vehicles burning,” said the police boss.

“He mobilized people to put off the fire and immediately reported the incident to police. The motive of the incident is yet to be established,” he added.
