The fake cigarettes have been secured as exhibits and lorry detained.

On Thursday, DCI detectives stationed at Kenyenya in Kisii County begun probe into an incident where a college student was beaten up at Bomachoge Borabu Constituency Development Fund (CDF) office.

The authorities, in a tweet posted after the video went viral, urged the victim to report to their offices in order to aid in “bringing all those involved to justice.”

The young man had reportedly gone to the CDF office to apply for bursary funds but was attacked by two supporters of the area Member of Parliament (MP).

The rowdy duo is alleged to have accused the man of criticising and opposing the MP dating back to the political campaign season.

The two men are, in the video, seen manhandling the student, slapping, punching and kicking him several times throughout the 30-second clip.

One of them, at one point, even picks up a piece of wood and hits him with it.
