The County Assembly of Nyeri would like to strongly condemn the heinous attack on the Hon. Speaker’s residence which took place last night. The thugs invaded the Hon. Speaker’s official residence at around 2.00 a.m. on discovering the Speaker and his family were not around, they proceeded to vandalize property, harassed a security officer stationed at his residence, drove him out of the compound in salon car before dumping him along Kiganjo Nyeri road.
As an Assembly, we are concerned about the state of security in Nyeri County if a Senior State Officer’s residence can be raided at night what about the state of security for the common Mwananchi?! At the moment we are not able to tell whether it was normal thuggery or even rule out political motive on last night’s incident.
We urge the relevant authorities to expedite thorough investigations into the attack for the culprits to be brought to book. We also decry the rising state of insecurity in the County where we have seen attacks on residents by a clique of thugs who are out to ensure that residents do not live in peace. As leaders, we are concerned and action should be taken immediately.
Lastly the Assembly shall not be intimidated and we shall execute our mandate without fear.
Hon. James Kanyugo Mwangi
County Assembly of Nyeri
