In Summary
  • Siaya police commander Ambrose Mwawaka said they have opened investigation into the matter.

Law enforcement officers in Siaya are hunting for Alego Usonga MP Samuel Atandi after he allegedly stormed the county commissioner’s offices and attacked a government official.

Siaya County Commissioner Michael Ole Tialal said police are looking for the MP to record a statement after he allegedly attacked Modester Anyuor, a human resource officer on Friday.

Mr Tialal expressed dismay over the incident. “It's unfortunate if a leader can storm a national government office and attack a civil servant,” he said.

Siaya police commander Ambrose Mwawaka said they have opened investigation into the matter.

ASSAULT

Mr Mwawaka said Mr Atandi reportedly demanded for the personal contacts of Siaya director of Education in charge of the Teachers Service Commission but Ms Anyuor said procedurally, she was not allowed to do so.

“The MP then attacked the employee prompting her to report at Siaya Police Station,” Mr Mwawaka said.
