Emua Dikirr MP Johana Ng’eno got in trouble with the police for holding a meeting without getting a police permit.
The MP was issuing bursaries when the police stormed the meeting.
The police insisted that the MP should have applied for a permit inline with the Covid-19 containment measures before holding the meeting.
However, Ng’eno argued that the meeting had only twenty participants, and so he did not see the need for a permit as it was held in his office, and the bursaries were meant for orphaned children.
This altercation with the police comes days after the MP threatened to sue the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) for including his name in the list of shame.
Speaking on Thursday, February 4, the MP rubbished the list claiming that he has never incited anybody, adding that the NCIC had never summoned him at any time.
“I am surprised that NCIC listed me as number two among those on their radar over hate speech. This is character assassination, and I am assembling my lawyers to face it off with the commission. I want my name removed from the list with immediate effect,’’ he stated.
He also said that he was being intimidated to fight for the rights of the disadvantaged members of the society.
He was listed in the list alongside Mike Sonko, Dagoretti MP Simba Arati, and Silvanus Osoro, MP South Mugirango.
