Kiharu legislator Ndindi Nyoro is said to have sneaked out of Royal Media Services offices after being declared a wanted man by police who were waiting for him outside.
Ndindi Nyoro Sneaks out of Citizen TV offices at midnight as police camped outside
The Kiharu legislator was accused of assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest during a scuffle at a Catholic church in Murang'a.
Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen and MPs Alice Wahome and Kimani Ichungwa were present at RMS offices to support Nyoro.
Nyoro and Maina Kamanda (nominated) clashed at Gitui Catholic Church in Kiharu, causing chaotic scenes that prematurely stopped the service.
Murkomen faulted IG Hillary Mutyambai who he said should be held liable for victimization of politicians regarded to be supporting Deputy President William Ruto.
Nyoro reportedly stormed Gitui Catholic Church and attempted to disrupt the fundraiser in which Kamanda had been invited as the chief guest.
The MP is said to have arrived late as Mr Kamanda was making introductions before later demanding to be the one that introduces the guests being the area MP.
“I can’t allow people from Nairobi to come and take over my constituency as if they know this area," Nyoro, said.
Kamanda, however, declined to give in to this demand, maintaining that he had been invited by the church as the chief guest to the fundraiser.
The two hence exchanged a few words before County Police Commander Josephat Kinyua also reportedly stood up and headed to the podium.
This is said to have worsened the situation as Mr Nyoro’s supporters turned rowdy thinking he was being arrested.
