Khwisero MP Christopher Aseka said the MCA was not killed in his meeting as widely alleged.

Khwisero MP Christopher Aseka has denied assertion that Kisa East MCA Stephen Maloba was killed in his meeting. 

On Saturday, April 1, Aseka was in Munjiti area in Kisa East ward to grace a meeting.

Maloba is said to have forced his way into the meeting; he then faced off with the MP's which fatally stabbed him.

However, while absolving himself of any wrongdoing, Aseka dismissed claims that Maloba was in the meeting when he met his tragic end.

"To this end, it is paramount to report that the unfortunate death of Hon. Maloba did not take place at the venue of my meeting, neither did he attend the meeting as purported by a section of social media users," said Aseka.

Aseka went ahead to condemn the perpetrators of the presumed murder; he said violence should not be employed as a mechanism to solve political differences.
