TNA chairman summoned for threatening, insulting MP

27 January 2015, 15:00 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - The National Alliance (TNA) party chairman in Nyeri County, Thuo Mathenge has been summoned by police over allegations that he insulted and threatened Kieni MP, Kanini Kega.

Thuo appeared before investigative police officers at Nyeri Central police headquarters accompanied by a section of his supporters.

He is alleged to have confronted and threatened the MP at Kabati village in Kieni West sub-County during a funeral service.

Kega had told the police that the ‘chairman's sentiments were a threat to his life, were in bad taste and thus could not stomach them’.

The confrontation began after the MP asserted that Thuo was not qualified and competent enough to lead TNA in the County, alleging that he was not elected to the position by party officials.

However, Thuo denied the allegations, stating that he is ‘respectful to elected leaders and has no grudge with any of them’.

Addressing media after recording a statement, Thuo said the police summon was meant to intimidate him while he condemned the MP for lodging the complaint, accusing him of playing politics.

“Kega is seeking sympathy from police because I did nothing wrong. He should be happy because I have invested more than KES 2 billion in his constituency and thus creating jobs for his constituents,” said Thuo.
