While expressing their outrage, the protestors also set fire to vehicles parked outside the offices, all the while chanting anti-government slogans.

Footage showed the office engulfed in thick, black smoke as residents pelted stones at the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) buildings.

Defending their actions, the protestors accused the legislator of betraying them by supporting the controversial Finance Bill 2024.

One protestor was heard rallying others to storm the building, which was already on fire.

In a similar incident, Igembe South MP John Paul Mwirigi’s office was razed by residents on Tuesday noon, who also accused him of voting in favour of the Finance Bill.

The anti-Finance bill protestors accused the legislator of going against their demand by voting ‘yes’ to the contentious bill, a move that they say prompted the decision. 

In the photos obtained by wamuzinews.co.ke, the angry residents could be seen surrounding the MP’s offices as they watched the building go up in smoke.

The two MPs are reportedly accused of being part of the 204 lawmakers who voted in favour of the Bill that sailed it through to the next stage.

The two incidents come against the backdrop of the ongoing nationwide anti-finance bill demonstrations.

In Nairobi, several demonstrators took to the Central Business District to protest the new proposed tax measures despite the presence of police officers.

While demonstrating, the protestors who came out in large numbers went ahead to storm the parliament buildings before police officers intervened.
