Kimilili Member of Parliament Didmus Barasa has now threatened to take stern action against Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party if he does not receive his signature cap within the next three days.
The lawmaker has threatened to take over ODM party offices in Bungoma county and repaint them to a colour of his own choice.
Speaking during a public function in Bungoma on Saturday, November 30, the vocal politician said The Orange party has three days to give him back his cap.
"I wanted to send Governor Wycliffe Oparanya to Raila Odinga and tell him to give me my signature cap within three days failure to which I will have all ODM party offices in Bungoma painted blue and red," said Barasa.
The MP lost his signature cap during by-election in Kibra on November 7 when his counterpart Simba Arati (Dagoretti) unleashed goons on him .
The vocal Jubilee politician who had been assigned to oversee elections in one of the polling centres was forced to leave the station unceremoniously after he was attacked by the goons who were in the company of Arati.
On Sunday, November 11, during thanks giving ceremony at Kibra DC grounds, Suna East MP Junnet Mohammed was seen wearing Barasa's cap.
The loyal ODM member said he found the hat in Baba's bedroom but promised to return it to him in the spirit of reconciliation following their outstanding victory in the hotly contested elections .
At one time, the outspoken MP disclosed to TUKO that he has over 65 such hats with each costing him KSh 5,000.
From his latest sentiments, the Kimilili legislator is yet to receive the cap despite the promise from Mohammed.
Barasa and Arati have since reconciled following uproar from Kenyans over the unwelcome behaviour of Arati against his counterpart.
