MCAs storm police station over colleagues’ arrest

29 August 2016, 13:31 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - More than 20 Members of Nyeri County Assembly (MCAs) stormed a police station after five of their colleagues were arrested over a recent brawl at the Assembly premises.

The MCAs led by Majority leader Duncan Gituanja stormed Nyeri Central police station after Rugi Ward MCA Njoroge Githaiga was arrested at a church function in Mukurweini.

The five MCAs are said to have assaulted their colleague, Chinga MCA Paul Ngiria, following differences on Governor Nderitu Gachagua’s impeachment motion.

The County Assembly Speaker Mwangi Mugo and Kieni MP Kanini Kega also joined the MCAs at the station where they protested terming the arrest illegal.

The Speaker said the move was against the law since the incident occurred at the Assembly where the lawmakers are protected by Standing Orders.

“The National Assembly Privileges Act allows the privileges committee of the assembly to handle the case and not police. Am going to write a protest letter to the CID and DPP because this is intimidation,” said the Speaker.

MP Kanini Kega said regional CID boss had confessed that the arrest was from an order by the County Government.

“Police must keep off politics of this County. The County CID boss has admitted that he acted on directives,” said Kega.

“We call upon the CID boss Ndegwa Muhoro to transfer the officer for applying law selectively. This is all politics and political machinations during this electioneering period. Law must be followed to the latter,” he added.

Majority Leader Gituanja said the arrests is a scheme to reduce the number of the MCAs supporting the impeachment motion during debate which has already been filed
