The motion was tabled by Kayafungo MCA Alphonce Mwayaa and seconded by Kakuyuni MCA Nixon Mramba.

Addressing journalists after the attack, Ndago blamed his woes on a section of MCAs. “Since the motion was passed, Kibarani MCA John Mwamusti and Mr Peru have been raising tensions. They are now inciting the youth,” said Ndago.
He blamed the past regime for the high number of casuals. Many of them have worked at the county since 2013.
County Criminal Investigations Officer Christopher Chesoli said the matter is under investigations
