Nairobi - Thugs stormed into the home of Kasarani MP Njoroge Chege and made away with his car.
The thugs, four in number stole the MPs vehicle, a Mitsubishi Pajero Thursday morning at 3 AM and stole the care, even though they did not attempt to raid the MP's house or injure him.
According to Kasarani OCPD Francis Sang, the four armed thugs pretended to be the MP's guests and entered the gated estate where the MP lives and proceeded to break into his car and steal it.
They injured the night watchman in the incident after he noticed their suspicious activities and approached them.
" They stole the vehicle and whatever was in it. They however did not harm the MP but they did injure a watchman. We are investigating the matter as we speak, Sang told News24.
The MP himself was slightly shaken by the events and asked police to stay vigilant over the matter.
" It is clear that someone is after something and I ask the police to ensure I get extra security, he added.
The incident comes just a few hours after a Nairobi MCA was shot and injured by thugs in the Ruaraka area of the city.
Maxwell Ochar was shot by a thug on a boda boda in what was a clear attempt on his life.
Just two months ago, Kabete MP George Muchai was shot dead in Nairobi, an incident that has caused upheaval over the state of insecurity in the country.
