There has been chatter on social media that CAS Stephen Tarus’s home in Emgwen has been burnt down by rowdy youth following comments made at the funeral of the murdered athlete, Agnes Tirop. The “news piece” doing the rounds is as follows:
The house of former Assistant Minister Stephen Tarus in Kapkangani, Emgwen Constituency reduced into ashes by “angry” youth.
The incident comes few hours after Oscar Sudi threatened to deal with him and any other person supporting Rt Hon Raila Odinga in Rift Valley.”
However on further confirmation, Tarus’s house still stands. Furthermore, there is no quoted source of the story. The announcement is therefore confirmed as fake news.
