Nyeri - A Member of the Nyeri County Assembly was on Friday night injured following an attack by a local political activist.
Njoroge Githaiga of Rugi ward in Mukurweini claimed that he was enjoying a drink at a pub in Nyeri town when the activist and another man approached the place he was sitting and attacked him with blows and kicks.
He said the men claimed to have been sent by a local tycoon for organising demonstrations in his ward over dilapidated roads.
He said that he has reported the matter at Nyeri Central Police station and the activist has since been arrested.
“I hope he will be taken to court and charged for assault. You cannot just meet somebody and attack him. I’m feeling pain on the back and my legs. I have been issued with a P3 form,” he said.
Speaking to journalists at Nyeri Referral Hospital where he was seeking medication, Njoroge urged youths not to allow themselves to be abused.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page!
