The businessman who is the husband to Kirinyaga Woman Representative, Purity Ngirici, distanced himself from the allegations that he hired the buses that transported goons to cause fracas at Kenol, prior to DP William Ruto’s visit on October 4.
“If those buses belong to me, then IG should arrest me and impound the buses. I am not above the law,” he defended himself.

Andrew lamented that the accusations had damaged his reputation, adding that he was ready to prove his innocence.
He challenged the IG to do an impartial audit on the Murang’a Kenol clashes and bring the culprits to book while condemning the incident which cost lives.
He also urged the political class to employ restraint and tolerance to divergent views in their political activities.
The tycoon noted that Kirinyaga was open to all Kenyans who wanted to visit the county and warned politicians against dividing the country along ethnic and political lines.
“Everybody is welcome here. If the former Prime Minister (Raila Odinga) wants to have a rally, he is free to do so. The same applies to Kalonzo Musyoka and others,” he added.
On October 4, chaos erupted at Kenol, Murang’a ahead of Deputy President William Ruto’s visit to the county. Two people died and several others were injured after the police confronted protesters.
The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) summoned the managers of Neo Kenya Mpya Commuters Limited and Joy Kenya Services Limited to record statements after they were accused of ferrying goons.
