Nakuru - Drama unfolded on Thursday evening in Nakuru town after Bahati MP Kimani Wa Ngujiri insulted two traffic police officers along the busy Kenyatta Avenue street.
According to an eyewitness, Simon Muita, the MP parked his car in a non-designated area but after he was told to remove the car by a female police officer he started hurling insults at the officer.
“He came and parked his car in an area which not designated and when asked to remove it he started abusing the female traffic officer,” he said.
Muita added that things got out of hand when the lawmaker started beating the lady before attacking another officer after he attempted to handcuff the angry MP.
The MP was forced to run for his dear life in a nearby shop as angry residents threatened to arrest him.
“The MP was rude to the two officers and that's when he stepped out of his car and started hitting the officer with a stick before another officer tried arresting him; that's when he started beating the other officer,” said Muita.
More police officers were called in to quell the situation which had attracted a large crowd of people along the Kenyatta Avenue.
Police officers were forced to tow the MP's car to central police station as they continued with their manhunt for the missing lawmaker.
