Nyeri - Impeached Nyeri Governor, Nderitu Gachagua has asked police to arrest four local MPs who allegedly broke into his office and stole crucial files which he was to use to defend himself at Senate.
The irked Governor while condemning MPs Kabando wa Kabando, Kanini Kega, Mary Wambui and Peter Weru who were accompanied by some MCAs and political aspirants, said his staff has reported the matter to the police.
He claimed that the lawmakers took away three official files which had evidence of his defense to the Senate following his impeachment by the County Assembly members last week.

Gachagua, who was speaking to the media at Iria-ini Tea Factory in Othaya when he met over 1,000 tea committee chairmen, said the door to his office was broken into when the MPs and their supporters forced their way in.
“We have reported the matter to the police. Now that doors to my office were broken into and official files taken away, we expect the police to take swift action against the culprits of this nefarious action in the same way they would with ordinary people. The fact that the crime was committed by MPs does not make them immune,” he said.
The Governor termed the action by MPs as diabolical, unconstitutional, illegal, criminal and actionable in law.
He maintained that the impeachment was defective and devoid of any constitutional or legal merit.
He expressed confidence that he will be absolved by the Senate committee.
