Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu on Friday bashed police over the failure to arrest suspects that attempted to disrupt Deputy President Ruto’s meeting when he visited Nyeri a week ago.
Ranting on a Facebook post, Wambugu said, “when I say we have a problem with the Nyeri police system and that they are politically biased, I am accused of trying to intimidate them.”
In his own opinion, he felt that the police were biased for he could not understand how some suspects were arrested whereas others seen even in the media dispelling violence were not arrested.
“What would you call the fact that close to one week later our police officers are yet to arrest one Samuel Kariuki Gichuki, MCA Ruringu and Deputy Speaker of the Nyeri County Assembly; the guy in the video below nearly killing another Nyeri resident?” He questioned.
Drama erupted outside Giakanja High School last Sunday when two rival youth groups clashed ahead of DP William Ruto’s arrival in Nyeri for a church function.
Trouble started after a group of youths believed to be supporters of Tangatanga grabbed T-shirts from those believed to be from the Kieleweke faction of Jubilee.
The T-shirts had the inscriptions ‘Uhuru’s Bedroom’ at the back and ‘No 2022 Politics’ in front.
The T-shirts were later burnt by the youths and police moved in hastily to calm the situation.
When the time for speeches came after Ruto’s arrival, Nyeri women representative Rahab Mukami invited Wambugu after all other visiting MPs had spoken but he declined and didn’t leave his seat
Businessmen and women in Nyeri called for the arrest of the legislator whom they thought had propagated the melee but he is yet to be arrested.
When the time for speeches came, Nyeri women representative Rahab Mukami again invited the MP after all other visiting MPs had spoken but once again he declined and didn’t leave his seat.
Seven people were, however, arrested when chaos erupted before Mr Ruto’s arrival.
