Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjuri (r) with his Nakuru West counterpart Samuel Arama address press on Monday June 13.
Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri has said he will not appear before the National Cohesion and Integration Commission on Thursday.On Monday, NCIC chairman Francis Ole Kaparo issued summons for the MP to appear before the cohesion team.This was after Ngunjiri was on Saturday captured on camera saying members of a community will be removed from Nakuru town.But speaking to the media on Monday, Ngunjiri said Kaparo has not sent any letter of summonses to him regarding the alleged hate remarks and that he will not appear.Ngunjiri also said he will not appear before the NCIC since he is an elected MP, adding that Kaparo was only appointed.
He said Kaparo ought to follow the right procedure when summoning an MP and that he should not do the same through television interviews and social media.
According to Ngunjiri, he said he only went to Kiamunyi where Raila Odinga was holding his meeting after locals complained that the former premier was accompanied by goons from Kisumu.He also said he went to the hotel where Raila was since some gunshots were fired by the goons, who were also armed with crude weapons.
“I went to Kiamunyi since there was a clip that showed the goons were armed with guns and crud weapons,” he said.He also said that his remarks were quoted out of context since he only meant those goons should go back to Kisumu.Ngunjiri alleged Raila was issuing money to local communities to start chaos like Nairobi and Kisumu county at the meeting.The MP said that Nakuru county has come from far and that they will not allow any individual to disrupt peace.
