Gubernatorial aspirant’s car clamped over KES 50 parking fee

10 August 2016, 13:09 Joseph Njung'eh

Nanyuki - There was drama in Nanyuki town, Laikipia County, after a car belonging to the former Governor Joshua Irungu’s aide, John Mwaniki, was clamped by County askaris.

Mwaniki who was working as the County Secretary was sacked under unclear circumstances for allegedly undermining the Governor following reports that he would run for the County top seat against his boss in the coming elections.

He had parked his Toyota Nissan Xtrail car at a road reserve near the County Commissioner’s offices and failed to pay a parking fee of KES 50.

The County askaris clamped his car and posted a notice on the windscreen that he should part with a penalty of KES 1,000.

However, all other vehicles parked nearby had not paid their parking fees and had not been clamped.

The parking attendants had a hard time unclamping the vehicle after some youths ganged up and attempted to forcefully unclamp it.

The incident comes a day after the County Secretary, who had been suspended pending investigations for undermining the Governor by the County Public Service Board, received a letter of termination.

Mwaniki said that despite being reinstated by a Labour and Employment Court in Nakuru, Governor Joshua Irungu has gone ahead to sack him unconstitutionally.

A week ago after reporting back to work, Mwaniki found chairs in his office removed and most of the office equipment missing.

John Wambugu, the Governor’s Principal secretary and Chief of Staff denied knowledge of the whereabouts of the seats despite being accused of trying to evict the secretary from office.
