According to a video by Citizen TV on Sunday, December 8, police officers stormed the area and nabbed at least 10 people involved in the skirmishes.

In a Facebook post, Wambugu alleged that the law enforcers in conjunction with the area MCA Samuel Gichuki assaulted and arrested everyone associated with him and even pelted stones at his car.

“Gichuki’s work today was to beat up anyone associated with me, then hand them over to the police.

“He had sworn that I would not attend the event in Giakanja. At some point, he even tried to throw a stone at my car as I was getting in,” wrote the parliamentarian.

The lawmaker called on Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i to beef security and warned that the hired goons would be hurt since the congregants of the church the DP was visiting were freedom fighters.

“I really fear for the lives of those goons given that the AIPCA faithful are the real freedom fighters who liberated this country,” said Kuria.

The Nyeri lawmaker responded by accusing his Gatundu counterpart and said he would be responsible for any violence in Nyeri.

“We are not buying this fear, my friend, you must be held accountable for any violence in Nyeri today,” Wambugu responded.
