Former Internal Security Assistant Minister Stephen Tarus’ woes have escalated after rowdy youth burned down his house on Sunday, October 24.
Speaking to the Press on Monday, October 25, the former lawmaker and Australian Envoy has now revealed that he was targeted due to his support for the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
In a statement that has since attracted the attention of supporters and critics alike, Tarus bashed the Jubilee Government noting that it had abandoned the people from North Rift hence his support for the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader.
He further decried that the torching of his house due to his political affiliations was unfair.
On Saturday the famous politician was involved in a heated altercation at Tirop’s Send-off.
This was after the Kapseret member of parliament Oscar Sudi blasted him badly during Tirop’s Burial.
According to Sudi, Tarus came pretending to be reading a condolence message from the former prime Minister Raila Odinga.
Sudi went further to claiming that Tarus had called the deputy president William Ruto a thug during his previous address in the area.
He filed a report at the Police Station on Saturday, October 23, after claiming that Oscar Sudi had attacked him during the funeral of the slain athlete Agnes Tirop.
