Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro now says there was an individual behind his dramatic arrest.
Speaking during an interview with Citizen TV's Hussein Mohammed, Nyoro alleged that his arrest was politically motivated adding that he committed no offence worth the dramatic arrest witnessed by Kenyans.
The lawmaker who was later released with no charges said he wouldn't condemn the entire government for his arrest but only a few individuals who he said were misusing the powers given to them by Kenyans.
He claimed Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho was at the centre of his arrest.
"My arrest must have come from an individual but I cannot give a blanket condemnation to the government that we fought for…I have a problem with a few elements who are misusing the powers they have been given," he said during an interview with Citizen TV.
Nyoro who was seemingly accused of hiring goons to cause altercation at the church said they were the men and women of his constituency who came out to resist the embarrassment he was subjected to.
“If indeed there is anything wrong I did they would have pinpointed those people they are calling goons. These are the people of Kiharu, men and women, who could not stand the embarrassment that was caused," he added.
Nyoro engaged in a physical altercation with nominated MP Maina Kamanda in Kiharu during a church function on Sunday.
He said Kamanda failed to follow protocol during the function thereby embarrassing him before his people.
His arrest was protested by his constituents who demanded his immediate release.
