Laikipia Woman Rep Cate Waruguru is on the spot for reportedly assaulting a resident during Deputy President William Ruto’s recent tour of the region.

Ms Waruguru is said to have assaulted one Lucy Wairimu during Tuesday’s rally at Sipili shopping centre for expressing a different political opinion.

The legislator had before then been heckled by a group of youths at Rumuruti town.

The MP, the woman claimed, grabbed and pulled her near her vehicle, strangled and assaulted her while abusing her.

The woman, who reported the incident at Sipili Police Station, has asked the security agencies to probe the matter and ensure justice is served.

Police sources revealed to The Press Point that investigations into the matter had been launched and that the DP Ruto ally would be summoned to record a statement.
