Ushers Were GSU Officers With Guns and Teargas Canisters, MP Nyoro Recounts Tuesday’s Event at Mathira

Days after Deputy President William Ruto’s Murang’a meeting was marred with chaos and teargas canisters, Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro has revealed how a burial they attended on Tuesday, October 11 at Mathira constituency was full of security officers armed to the teeth.

Taking to his Facebook page on Tuesday evening, Nyoro, who is one of William Ruto’s adamant supporters communicated that he was in the company of other Tanga-tanga-affiliated MPs including the area MP Rigathi Gachagua and Kikuyu’s Kimani Ichungwa where they were ushered in by the law enforcers.

Despite the presence of officers armed with the riot gears, Nyoro said the meeting went on peacefully.

“I was in Mathira Constituency today for burial together with Hon Rigathi & Hon Ichungw’a and it’s appalling to to see what has become of this country. Ushers were GSU officers with guns and teargas canisters. Luckily they didn’t get a chance to utilise them. As usual, everyone was peaceful,” read his post.

Nyoro went ahead to claim that the officers were not only present to provide security at the funeral, but to allegedly out to arrest the chairman of Kangema Boda Boda Sacco and other people helping in planning Friday’s meeting at Mathioya expected to be graced by William Ruto.

“While on our way back, we learnt that orders from above were given for arrest of the chairman of Kangema Boda Boda Sacco and some of our staff helping with planning Friday’s Harambee that will be attended by H.E the DP William Ruto,” he added.

The MP wondered why Uhuru was turning Kenya into a military state, saying there was nothing wrong with the DP meeting with Boda boda riders from the region.

He promised Hustlers’ oppressors that their time was coming and that they will never be forgiven.

“Why are these characters turning this Country into a Police State? What crime is there to sit down with Boda Boda Chairmen to plan an empowerment Harambee?

They can arrest, detain and intimidate innocent Kenyans but one day, they’ll know hawana title deed ya Kenya. We are African and Africa is our Business..”he stated.

This comes at a time police officers in Nyamira have refuted claims doing round on social media sites that Ruto’s two meetings in Nyamira scheduled for Thursday have been given a go-ahead.

According to Masaba North Ward Police Commander Elam Esendi, police have disowned the letters and termed them as criminal propaganda on social media.
