A photo going round with the information that Lugari parliamentary aspirant Nabii Nabwera was recently arrested by police officers from the Mlimani Police Post in Mautuma Ward for assaulting his wife is misleading.
Information shared widely on social media purportedly indicated that the ODM aspirant was apprehended for battering his wife.
Thorough scrutiny by the Western Kenya Times reveals that the photo used was that of 2016 by The Star when Nabwera, then Kakamega County chief of staff, was arrested following chaos that erupted at Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula’s bid launch on Sunday, April 10, 2016.
Nabii was taken to court under heavy police escort as a suspect behind the lobbing of teargas at the crowds and VIP podium at the Muliro Gardens in Webuye and freed on an Shs 20,000 bond, The Star reported.
Nabii was by then supporting Raila Odinga’s Coalition of Reforms and Democracy (CORD).
