Police on Thursday raided the home of former Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala over alleged violent acts during the Kakamega mini-elections.
A contingent of police surrounded his home before breaking in after they were issued with a warrant of arrest for the former Kakamega Senator.
During the just concluded mini-elections in the county of Kakamega, several people were allegedly caught in possession of either marked ballot papers or cash meant to bribe voters in support of their candidate.

In videos making rounds on social media, some alleged to have been sent by the former Senator as they received a thorough beating.
The same was the case in the Kenya Kwanza camp which raised allegations of voter bribery, claims that were downplayed by their opponents before, during, and after the gubernatorial elections.
Immediately after Fernandes Barasa was confirmed the governor-elect, Cleophas Malala congratulated him terming his win deserved and undisputed.
“FCPA. Fernandes Barasa and his team for their win. It is deserved and indisputable. I am ready to offer any part of my manifesto that they may find suitable in their new government for the progress of Kakamega.
I also laud IEBC for conducting free, fair, credible, and verifiable elections. Not all losses are losses, some are lessons. Time is high for Kakamega County residents, regardless of their political side to rally behind the Governor for the county to realize her full socio-economic potential.” Said Malala
