Senator Joy Gwendo fights woman in her office What Trespass
Gwendo claims the secretary is a â€˜moleâ€™ and that she (the secretary) attacked her first when she was confronted with the allegations of being disloyal.
In the video captured in her office by an unknown person, Gwendo angrily asks the woman in Dholuo if she has left anything behind.
But the women responds that she has not refused to leave. They have a muted exchange before Gwendo again asks the woman to leave.
A clearly infuriated Gwendo shouts at her and a fight ensues. The woman stands up, holds Gwendo and says, â€œIâ€˜m not those foolish people you beat all the time!â€
All this time, Gwendo is overheard in the video shouting, â€œGet out! Get out!â€
The woman shouts back saying, â€œLet me leave on my own accord. Let me take my things, do not mishandle me.â€
Gwendo then snaps back, â€œWho are you to tell me what to do? Get out! We know we are very stupid and you are very smart!â€
But the woman is not taking anything lying down. She responds angrily: â€œIchula peanuts to igoya gi wuoche (you pay me peanuts and still have the nerve to hit me with a shoe). Nee, Senator, podi. You will regret this. Nyasaye oketi kumaber to i treat ji kaka chieth (Listen hear Senator, this is not over. You will regret this. God has really blessed you, but treat people like sh*t).â€
Gwendo then interjects and dismisses, â€œGo to the media!â€
But the woman responds saying, â€œI cannot waste my time going to the media, but Nyasacha malamo Joy, biro chuli (Joy, the God I worship will avenge me),â€ as the video ends.
When Gwendo was contacted, she said Annette is a friend whom she employed but decided to fire after discovering she was leaking information from her office.
â€œI was with her in Lwak Girls. She was going through a tough time, so I gave her a job as my secretary… now she is doing this,â€ said the Senator. Also ReadSmall crimes big jail terms
The senator claims the commotion in her office arose when she realised that some files and other things were missing from her office.
â€œI fired her and she refused to leave, then she became violent. She attacked me after I ordered her out of the office. I was injured during the process and was treated for tetanus, because of the scratches,â€ said Gwendo.
Gwendo also claims she lost her laptop and spare keys to the office and claims she suspects her secretary.
She further claims that Annette was working in cahoots with an accomplice who recorded the video.
According to the senator, she had warned the secretary on several occasions and she could not take it any more.
â€œPeople just look for malicious ways to demean leaders. I am vying for a parliamentary seat and this is just an attempt to taint my name,â€ she claimed.
The incident was reported at the Parliament Police Station with the reference number: OB No 23/15/3/16.
