Deport Ruto pilot, Jubilee MPs tell government

25 February 2016, 15:27

Nairobi - Three MPs want a pilot who physically assaulted a policewoman deported for what they termed a sign of disrespect for a symbol of authority.

According to The Standard, the politicians from Nakuru and Nyandarua, where the attack took place, said it was disrespectful for pilot Alistair Llewelyn to attack corporal Mercy Wandera, "because he was closer to power".

Kinangop MP Stephen Kinyanjui said they will present the matter in Parliament, for foreigners with unacceptable conduct to be deported.

Kinyanjui called for stern action against Llewelyn, saying that by snatching Wandera's swagger stick, he indicated that he does not respect authority.

"We know there are others treating Kenyans badly. This is why we want to table a motion requiring foreigners who do not obey Kenyan laws be deported," he said.

Nyandarua woman representative Wanjiku Muhia said as quoted by The Star: "It was wrong, and we want the pilot immediately deported once he is through with the cases he is facing."

The incident was a shame and presented women as lesser in society, Muhia further said, and noted that they ought to be respected in line with their rights as stated in the constitution.
