Chege’s car was found with bullet holes in King’eero area, Gitaru on Saturday morning sparking protests among his supporters.

He was due to launch his campaign Saturday. Police said they are investigating the incident. His mobile phones were found in his car.

Police say it is difficult to take action against him because he or his people are the ones who reported the disappearance.

“In this case, he is the complainant. Unless you establish the gun used is his,” said another officer.

The officers who visited the scene said they collected two spent cartridges.

Protests broke out in Kabete after the incident was reported. His supporters blocked section of Nairobi-Naivasha highway and Gitaru Wangige Road in protest.

He is battling for the Jubilee ticket in the constituency whose current MP is Ferdinand Waititu.
