A Nakuru MCA was on Tuesday charged with creating disturbance at a public toilet within the city centre.

Peter Njoroge (Biashara Ward) is accused of forcefully evicting one John Mwai who was working as a cashier at the public facility forcing him to run for his life.

Njoroge alias Wanyaguthii was charged alongside ten other suspects but they denied the charges.

The court was told that on July 13, 2019, they jointly created disturbance at Mashambani public toilet in a manner causing breach of peace, leaving several people injured after the fracas.

Members of the Mashambani Stage Self-Help Group, who claim to be the rightful owners of the public toilet at Lions Garden in Nakuru, allege that the MCA hired goons to harass them to give up ownership.

They insist that they were allocated the space to build the pay-to-use toilets by the County Government.

However, in their defence, the suspects cited malice asking the court to release them.

Senior Principal Magistrate Lillian Arika ruled that they be released on Ksh. 20,000 bond each with an alternative cash bail of Ksh. 5,000 each.

The hearing of the case is scheduled for July 31, 2019.
