Murang'a Senator Irungu Kang'ata has secured the release of Kiharu Member of Parliament Ndindi Nyoro.

According to the Murang'a senator, Mr Nyoro will not be charged after he secured a deal with state officials.

On Tuesday morning, Inspector-General of Police Hillary Mutyambai stated that he had recalled the probe file from Murang’a County for “review and guidance from the DPP.

Senator Kang’ata said he secured his release, with an assurance that there will be no charges against him.

Murang’a County Commander Josphat Kinyua, had insisted that “Legal action will be taken against the MP and other culprits involved in the incident.”

He had been arrested during a town hall meeting that was live on television from Murang’a, sparking outrage from locals.

Residents blocked Kenyatta Highway, in Murang'a using burning tyres as police shoot in the air and used tear gas to disperse them.

The MP was arrested by GSU officers on Monday at St James Cathedral in Muranga where he was taking part in a TV show alongside other legislators: Mr Peter Kimari (Mathioya) and Mr Muturi Kigano (Kangema).
