I'll not surrender, come arrest me, MP Nyoro dares police


Kiharu Member of Parliament Ndindi Nyoro has maintained that he will not surrender to the police.

Nyoro on Tuesday accused the Office of the President saying it was on a mission to intimidate certain leaders.

Nyoro and his Kandara counterpart Alice Wahome were on Monday summoned by the DCI over chaotic scenes at Kenol that left two people dead and several others injured.

The George Kinoti-led directorate said it had every reason to believe that the two among other legislators mobilised goons who caused the mayhem at Kenol on Sunday.

IG Hillary Mutyambai while ordering their arrest said the motor vehicles which were hired to ferry the goons be tracked and detained to assist in the investigation.

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

But Nyoro and Wahome, later on, dismissed the summons saying police had not officially asked them to present themselves.

While making his remarks on Citizen television morning show, Nyoro accused the government of sponsoring the youth to disrupt the church fundraiser.

"Let me put it on the record. I am not surrendering to any police. I will not be used by murderers to cleanse their mess..... They have the system they can track my phone, they know all my where bouts every day,"  he said.

He added, "They know that I was not involved in their mess, If you want to arrest me, I am here at home come and arrest me but will not be part of that narrative".

Homa Bay Woman Rep Gladys Wanga, however, challenged the legislator to just present himself to the police and record what he knows about the chaos.

Wanga said it is unfortunate that the legislators want to create drama around their arrests to gain sympathy.

"Just present yourself to the police and say what you. Creating drama around your arrest will not take you anywhere. If you are innocent as you have claimed then by now you should have already told the police so,"  she said.
