A Jubilee politician collapsed on Wednesday in Kisumu Central Police Station, few hours after being arrested for causing chaos and disorderliness.

Mr Fred Omayio, the second term Magwagwa MCA, had been arrested by authorities from Pine Hotel where he had disrupted a meeting attended by his colleagues.

"I am not in Kisumu but I am told he came when drunk and started causing chaos. He was raising the issue of allowances and asking my whereabouts yet I am not a member of the committee," Speaker Moffat Teya confirmed.

At the hotel, Omayio reportedly broke glasses and plates prompting the security to intervene. He was kicked out before being arrested by Flying Squad officers.

Sergeant-at-arms Mr George Angwenyi said the MCA collapsed in Kisumu Central Police and was rushed to the Aga Khan Hospital, not far away from the station.

"I can confirm he collapsed and was taken to Aga Khan on Wednesday evening. The Hotel management want him to be charged for causing disorderliness," he said.

On Thursday morning in an interview with Egesa FM, Omayio blamed the assembly leadership, accusing it or bias in transaction of business.

"I am against these trips and I am justified to question. We are transacting business without all committees. The assembly leadership is a big let down," he said.
