Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro has been released after spending a night in police custody.
Murang’a Senator Irungu Kangata on Tuesday morning said he had secured Nyoro’s release.
Kangata said the MP is currently at his home and that no charges will be preferred against him.
“We have been able to use our legal acumen to secure his unconditional release. There is no evidence against my good friend Nyoro and therefore there is no reason to warrant his arrest and his arraignment in court,” the Senator said on Citizen TV.
Kangata dismissed reports that Nyoro had gone into hiding before his arrest.
Anti-riot police were deployed in Murang’a on Monday night after residents took to the streets to protest the arrest of Nyoro.
