The youth had no other option but to slap back.

When the local residents identified me as an MP they told me that the unrepentant lawmaker went to look for reinforcement of his supporters. They beat up the young man severely leaving for dead. The puncture repairer is now admitted at Hargeisa Group Hospital. He is in comatose.”
