Commotion was reported at the Nakuru County Assembly after Viwandani ward MCA Mwangi Muraya claimed that a police officer attempted to shoot him.
While addressing the media outside the assembly premises on Tuesday, September 19, Muraya stated that the officer in question had been tailing him for a while.
Further, he explained that the officer followed him into the assembly and drew his gun pointing it at him. Muraya added that the officer did not give any reason for threatening his life.
According to the MCA, the traffic officer had been trailing him from Gilgil and at a point had blocked his way to prevent him from accessing the County Assembly offices.
He added that when he asked what his offense was, the officer asked him to give him his identification card but failed to give any further information.
MCA Mwangi Muraya’s Demands after Commotion
While addressing the police commander, Muraya asked that the officer be questioned and disciplinary action taken against the officer, adding that it was not an isolated event.
“This officer has been following me around and roughing me up for a while now and nobody is doing anything about it. I was only going about my business.
“Attacking me inside the assembly is outrageous. That should never happen. He must be interrogated and tell me what I have done wrong,” he stated.
Response From the Police
Police officers attached to Kapembwo police station present at the scene listened to the grievances of the Nakuru MCA but failed to issue an immediate response to the politician.
They, however, noted that investigations into the matter would begin. If found guilty of any crime, the officer in question will be subjected under the Police Act and code of regulations.
