Rashid Kassim in a nasty encounter with Rashid Kassim on Thursday morning in the parliament building reportedly beat the female lawmaker, leaving her with injuries. Rashid Kassim has been arrested as a result of the incident.
It is alleged that Gedi engaged him in a heated discussion before she was assaulted by the MP.
The MP demanded to know why Gedi, who is a member of the budget committee, did not allocate any money to his Wajir East constituency. Gedi narrated that she was with her Homa Bay counterpart Gladys Wanga when she met the Wajir East lawmaker.
“He called me stupid and nonsense and then he beat me. I was shocked, I could not believe it. He came again and hit me. I told him that Wajir County was only allocated Ksh100 million and we had to allocate money to only areas of priority to the region like water and roads but he told me that was nonsense,” she highlighted.
