This followed an order of from Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai directing for the immediate arrest of the twol lawmakers on Sunday evening.
It is believed the two lawmakers mobilised goons to cause chaos and blame it on their rivals.
According to locals, two buses ferrying unknown youth arrived at Kenol as early as 7:00 AM on Sunday morning and started the chaos. They lit tyres on the main road before going to throw stones at the church where the DP later visited.
You hired a few young hustlers for only KShs 500 to cause chaos, paid and left and yet you are opposed to hustlers getting wheelbarrows ? Anyway we have arrived and the people of Muranga are peaceful https://t.co/3WxN26ufMs

The goons were not locals and are said to have been ferried from Thika Town.
