MPs Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu) and Alice Wahome (Kandara) have been summoned following a fracas that left two dead in Murang'a County on Sunday.

DCI via Twitter on Monday said the two should appear on Monday morning at the Regional Criminal Investigations offices in Nyeri to assist Police with investigations.

This was after the IG Hillary Mutyambai gave the directive.

 

In the directive, IG said the two should be tracked and arrested immediately for mobilising goons who caused mayhem at Kenol.

Equally the motor vehicles which were hired to ferry goons were to be tracked and detained to assist in investigations.

The incident occurred on Sunday before the arrival of Deputy President William Ruto and his allies.

The DP was scheduled to attend church service at AIPCA church in Kenol.

It is alleged that two buses ferrying youths landed in the area early in the morning and proceeded to the AIPCA church before starting to throw stones into its compound.

Tangatanga MPs have blamed the Kieleweke group for ferrying the goons from other areas to attack them. 

 

Ruto accused people within Jubilee of being behind the chaos witnessed at Kenol, Murang'a, on Sunday.

 "Watu waliotuma watu kutuma teagas ni watu wanaofanya kazi chini yetu. (Those who sent these goons to unleash teargas on us were sent by leaders working under us.)," he said.
