The Nyeri County Assembly Powers and Privileges Committee wants the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to train Nyeri ward-representatives on the Leadership and Integrity Act.

The proposal was made as the committee tabled its report after probing an incident where a female MCA from the county was allegedly attacked and injured by her colleague during a training workshop in Arusha, Tanzania.

Magutu Ward Rep Pauline Wanjira claimed that she was punched by Mr Anthony Dagita, who is the Kirimukuyu ward representative during a scuffle that occurred while they were in the neighbouring country. Mr. Dagita denied the allegations.

“When I was lying on the floor my colleagues came in and restrained him. If we were just the two of us, he would have killed me,” claimed Ms. Wanjira.

The report was tabled in the assembly on Thursday afternoon by the committee chair James Kanyugo, who is also the majority leader.

Debate on the report is still ongoing.
