Former Sports CS Rashid Echesa was on Thursday caught on tape slapping an IEBC official in Matungu constituency.
The agitated politician accused the IEBC official identified as Peter Okura for blocking his agents from supervising the ongoing elections.
In a not well audible video, Echesa demanded answers before slapping Peter before he could finish to defend himself on the matter.

“The law says all poll agents must witness voting..Who told you? you cannot keep our agents outside..Why are you chasing them outside?” Said Echesa before slapping Peter.
It is alleged that the IEBC official barred the agents from UDA from the station citing lack of face masks as the reason.
The ongoing elections are a key indicator of UDA strength following the recent change of heart of Jubilee Party members to the DP Ruto linked party.
