Tangatanga allied legislators Alice Wahome and her Kiharu Constituency counterpart Ndindi Nyoro have been ordered to surrender to any nearby police station following chaotic scenes witnessed in Murng’a on Sunday.
Orders issued by Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai wants the two MPs allied to DP William Ruto arrested by today evening if they will not have volunteered themselves to the police.
Mutymabai is reportedly angry with the Sunday’s October 4th happenings that cost two lives in the area with several casualties also having been reported.
The Police boss further wants the two MPs to bring with them the car which was allegedly used to ferry goons who caused chaos at the Kenol area.
Ndindi Nyoro made a controversial tweet against security agencies immediately after the chaos what is believed to have informed his arrest warrant.
“Kenol, thank you for your love. The power of guns and teargas will always be defeated by people’s power,” Ndindi Nyoro tweeted on Sunday afternoon.
The clashes happened between the Tangatanga and Kieleweke warring factions as the Deputy President William Ruto was being waited in Muranga for a funds drive in a local church.
On her part, the vocal Kandara MP Alice Wahome had earlier faulted the Inspector General for alluding the arrest of anyone linked to the scuffles saying Police should fully be held accountable for not keeping order as required by law.
“I have seen the IG has posted on the unfortunate Kenol incident which his security men watched happen. The men in 5 buses are back to kill. Sabina Chege, Governor Wa Iria and IG will take full responsibility if we lose any life and property,” Wahome claimed.
And weighing on the same matter, Senior Counsel Martha Karua said it was not amusing to see the State machinery target people who are not State friendly which she termed as ‘against the spirit of the new constitution that requires every citizen to enjoy freedom of speech’.
“The government, and all state/public officers are obligated to uphold and defend the constitution and the rule of law. This means delivering services equally to all and similarly applying the law equally without regard to political affiliation,” partly read her statement.
The DP who was supposed to arrive at the fundraiser later made his way to the venue and continued with his day’s programme successfully before he would later commend on the matter by wishing well those who were caught in the unfortunate melee.
