Mutyambai Orders Arrest of MPs Ndindi Nyoro, Alice Wahome Over Kenol Myhem

Hours after chaos between two rival groups erupted in Kenol Murang’a county ahead of Deputy President William Ruto’s visit, Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai has ordered for the arrest of two MPs.

Through a Twitter post shared by the Nationa Police Service, NPS on Sunday evening, Mutyamba ordered for immediate tracking and arrest of Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro together with his Kandara counterpart Alice Wahome.

According to the IG, the two had allegedly mobilized goons and caused mayhem at Kenol, which led to the death of two people.

“The @IG_NPS has directed that Members of Parliament (Mps) Hon.Ndindi Nyoro and Hon.Alice Wahome to be tracked and arrested immediately for mobilizing goons who caused mayhem at Kenol this morning,” read a twitter post from National Police Service.

At the same time, Mutyambai, ordered that the two lorries which were said to have been hired to ferry goons be tracked and detained as well to assist in investigations.

Mutyambai’s statements have, however, exposed the police service in bad limelight, after Kenyans came out to question the insincerity of the service and the double standards police were applying in serving justice.

Taking to his twitter account, Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot, expressed his frustrations over Mutyambai’s statements, hoping that the Director of Public Prosecutions, DPP, will not be roped into Mutyambai’s statement.

According to Cheruiyot, the police clearly knows that it was Sabina Chege who hired goons to disrupt Ruto’s function but had allegedly spared her and instead wade into the politics between Kieleweke and Tanga-tanga.

“I just hope @ODPP_KEwill not be roped into this@FredMatiangi and@IG_NPS Nonsense. They know it is Sabina who hired goons to disrupt the DP’s function but would rather run a political narrative to serve their master. Very shameful. Why would Alice disrupt her own function?” tweeted Senator Cheruiyot.

The same sentiments were shared by Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua who accused the government of curtailing freedom of movement, association and assembly for politicians who are deemed as Uhuru’s rivals.

At the same time, Karua lashed out at Mutyambai saying he had allowed himself to be used and manipulated by the government instead of upholding and defending the constitution and rule of law.

She said the police were applying selective justice against some political factions instead of following the rule of law.
