A dramatic scene unfolded on Wednesday 28th, during a prayer dedication ceremony for the newly opened Kenol Law Courts in Maragua constituency, Murang'a county.
Murang'a county commissioner, Mr Karugu, and a number of police officers stormed out from the meeting as the area member of parliament, Hon Mary Waithira Wamaua, made her address.
The walk out by the security agents came prematurely after the MP castigated them over the rising insecurity in the area. Wamaua said that the police had gone rogue and instead of maintaining security, they spend most of the time taking bribes. The legislator also asked the officers to cultivate a good working relationship with the common citizens. Video.
Maragua MP, Hon Wamaua
The lawmaker told them that it will not be business as usual and they must pull up their socks. It is at this point that the county commissioner and some police officers felt rattled and left the venue.
The crowd which had congregated in the area went ahead to shout down the officers telling them to leave. The MP went ahead to give her speech.
Later this evening, Maragua MP Hon Wamaua has reiterated that she will continue speaking out against any ill-will towards the people she was elected to represent.
