The legislator has found himself at loggerheads with police over the chaos that marred a fundraiser at Gaitu Catholic Church in Murang’a County last Sunday.

The incident involved the MP allied to Jubilee Party's Tangatanga faction and his nominated rival Maina Kamanda of Kielweke.

It pointed to a bitter contest come the 2022 general election.

'PERSECUTION'

Even though Mr Nyoro has alleged persecution over his support for Deputy President William Ruto, political pundits say his is a perfect example of chickens coming home to roost, this based on his utterances n the past.

On October 24, 2017, just two days to the repeat presidential election, the lawmaker was accused of spewing venom and advocating for a dictatorial government.

Three voters had asked the Supreme Court to stop the election that it ordered on September 1 after the opposition, led by Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga, rejected President Uhuru Kenyatta's victory.

Mr Khalef Khalifa, Mr Samuel Mohochi and Mr Gacheke Gachuhi claimed the electoral commission was divided and could not guarantee a fair and credible poll.

At the time, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) was reeling from shock following the resignation of commissioner Roselyn Akombe who said it was under siege.
