A young woman on Wednesday 1am caused drama outside the house of Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny’s house in Karen, Nairobi, accusing the lawmaker of absconding parental responsibility.
Police say two officers -- constables Emmanuel Maiyo and Mercy Ngeno from Hardy Police Station -- swiftly responded after learning that there was commotion outside the legislator’s house, which is located 4 kilometers from the police post.
“Upon rushing to Kutuny’s house, they heard a woman in Kutuny’s compound shouting that ‘they wanted to kill her’. In the process, police officer Maiyo fired one round of 7.62mm of ammunition using his CZ rifle No. C276787 to calm the situation,” says a report filed at Hardy Police Station under the OB No. 02/5/2/2020.
“It was established that one Joyline Chemutai had gone to the said-homestead claiming child upkeep from Hon. Joshua Kutunyi, the matter is still under investigation,” says police in a statement addressed to Nairobi police boss Philip Ndolo.
When reached for comment by K24 Digital, Ndolo said: “The matter is rather private, and our mandate was to restore peace and order at the MP’s house. On matters child support, the MP and the lady should square it out in or out of court, depending on how they’ll agree to resolve the problem.”
