Fist fights erupted at a Kiambu hotel on Friday as Murang’a MCAs met to plot assembly leadership changes.
The meeting organised by the county’s Jubilee Party chairman Simon Gikuru degenerated into fights after MCAs opposed to the idea stormed in.
Sources who sought anonymity indicated the meeting was on removing Majority leader Eric Kamande, Chief Whip Simon Wamwea and deputy Chief Whip Ruth Wambui.
The sources said ward representatives linked to the three had been locked out of the meeting for two hours and that when they were finally granted entry, they demanded to know why they had been kept off.
“When we asked why they locked us out, they ganged up and beat us up,” one MCA said.
Gatanga’s Nahashon Gachuhi sustained injuries on the head and was rushed to Aga Khan Hospital.
He and others who were injured recorded statements at Runda police station and obtained P3 forms.
