Lengo Karisa Mdzomba arriving at Kwale law courts where he was charged with three counts of assaulting and causing bodily harm to Cord leader Raila Odinga and Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya September 29, 2014.
Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (Cord) leader Raila Odinga and Kwale governor Salim Mvurya have said they will not pursue a case against a man who attacked them over the weekend.
Mr Odinga and Mr Mvurya said they will not apply for a P3 form that would require them to undergo medical examination for the assault case against Mr Lengo Karisa Mdzomba to proceed.
“Instead, Governor Mvurya will seek out Mr Mdzomba to understand his problems and motives. Mr Mvurya will also try to understand what was the provocation or the issue that the man wanted to protest against,” Mr Odinga said in a statement Wednesday through his spokesman Dennis Onyango.
