Nairobi - Machakos Senator Johnston Muthama says that MPs who physically assaulted him last week in parliament must be arrested.
Muthama was last week in parliament assaulted by a group of Jubilee MPs who attacked him and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula amongst others, in the house during the chaotic scenes seen during the debate on the controversial Security Bill 2014.
His trouser and shirt were torn to pieces during the melee and he says that he will now petition the director of Public prosecutions DPP to institute charges against the MPs, who he says he was assaulted by.
" They must be arrested for assault. There was no need to do what they did, even if it was in the heat of the moment. They had no right to harass me like they did, he said.
He says he understood the charged nature of proceedings on the said day but still does not understand why the MPs jumped on him the way they did.
" I know that the day was charged. Fully charged, but what they did to me and my colleagues on a personal level was unacceptable, he added.
He named the MPs who assaulted him as Kimani Ngunjiri, Bahati MP, Joseph Kiuna, Njoro MP, Muthomi Njuki, Chuka MP and James Gakunya, Embakasi North MP,".
"I saw them clearly, They beat me, pushed me around and some even tried to handle me by my private parts," he said of the melee.
