Daniel Maanzo, the infamous former Starehe High School student who ran away with ODM certificate was attacked and robbed of cash and other valuables by unknown thugs in Nairobi’s Hardy Estate. The thugs also roughed up the wife. They were asleep when the incident happened.
The current first time legislator for Makueni Constituency rests in the annals of history as a cunning man who ran away with the certificate of the initial ODM-Kenya, leaving Raila Odinga partyless towards the 2007 elections. However, the Enigma of Kenyan politics then negotiated the acquisition of another certificate of the current ODM which had also been registered a Nairobi lawyer Mugambi Imanyara.
Raila would later use ODM to thoroughly trounce incumbent Mwai Kibaki but the election was rigged triggering a wave violence that could years later haunt the masterminds.
Police said the attack took place at about 3 AM as the MP and his family were sleeping. According to Langata OCPD Titus Yoma, the gang of four first smashed a pane of a kitchen door before they grabbed a house girl who was sleeping there and ordered her to open the other rooms.
