MCA Aspirant Arrested For Allegedly Stealing From an M-Pesa Shop

Police in Nakuru County have arrested a Member of County Assembly, MCA, for allegedly robbing an M-Pesa shop.

The suspect, Benson Thuranira, was picked up by detectives and taken in for questioning. It's not yet clear how much he stole from the said M-Pesa shop.

Mr Thuranira is vying for Muthara Ward seat on a Narc-Kenya party ticket whose leader is Martha Karua, Azimio La Umoja's deputy presidential candidate.

The party, Narc-Kenya and its leader, are yet to give their side of the story, either to vindicate or incriminate the MCA aspirant.

A section of Kenyans condemned the act, terming as a bad example to the youth who were looking up to their leaders for inspiration.

If Mr Thuranira is found guilty, he risks a jail term or heavy fines or both. If convicted, he could be disqualified from vying by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
