Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata, who is also the lawyer representing Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, has said his client has been freed and will not be charged in court.
The senator Tuesday morning said he had negotiated with top government officials who agreed to drop the charges against the MP.
“Mr Nyoro’s charges have been dropped unconditionally. He will not be presented to court after successfully negotiating with government officials,” Mr Kang’ata told the Nation without mentioning the said officials.
According to the police, Mr Nyoro was to be charged with assaulting police officers, resisting arrest and causing disturbance in church.
He was arrested on Monday night moments after a live show on a local TV station which was held at St James Cathedral Church in Murang’a.
