Tuesday September 10, 2019 - A section of Kiharu Constituency electorate have warned President Uhuru Kenyatta against intimidating their lawmaker, Ndindi Nyoro.
On Monday evening, Nyoro was arrested and taken to Murang’a Police Station.
Nyoro, who was released by a Murang’a Court on Tuesday, was accused of assaulting a police officer and disrupting a church service in Gitui Catholic Church.
Following his arrest, chaos erupted in Murang’a town with his supporters accusing security agents of being biased.

"We shall continue supporting the MP because he is unfairly targeted by the State," the irate residents.
The residents said that they are ready to die with their MP the way they died with late former Kiharu MP, Kenneth Matiba, when he was being tortured by former President Moi’s regime.
