Nakuru East Member of Parliament David Gikaria has been released on police bond of Ksh.50,000 a day after he was arrested following an altercation at a polling station within the county.
The legislator will be arraigned after police conclude investigations into the incident.
According to Nakuru Police Commander Peter Mwanzo, the MP fought a fellow candidate and allegedly sent a group of suspected goons to Naka polling station but were repulsed by police.
“This morning he appeared at the Lanet polling centre where he fought a fellow candidate. Later on in the afternoon, at Naka polling centre, he sent a group suspected to be goons but were chased away by police,” said Mwanzo.
He noted that one person was hospitalised for injuries sustained in the fracas and that police had opened investigations into the incident.
