Kimorori Wempa MCA Amos Murigi was arrested on Tuesday and arraigned at a Murang’a court over the morning chaos at the county assembly. He did not take a plea.

Chaos had erupted when two warring factions clashed over majority party leadership, just two weeks after they fought at a Kiambu hotel over the same issue.

A faction led by Mr Murigi, who was elected in the controversial Kiambu meeting, had gone to occupy the offices.

They first visited Deputy Speaker Kihurunjo Mwangi’s office and handed him the letter effecting the changes. Mr Mwangi gave him the go-ahead to occupy the office, effectively replacing Mr Eric Kamande.

On January 5, Mr Murigi’s camp met at a hotel in Kiambu and replaced Mr Kamande, accusing him of failing to discharge his duties.
