Kathiani MP Robert Mbui is admitted in hospital following beatings he received from police officers during the confrontation between NASA supporters and police officers deployed to stop their presidential candidate Raila Odinga from addressing a public rally at Uhuru Park yesterday.
Mbita MP Millie Odhiambo, who was with her colleague during the procession of Raila's entourage from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport towards the city centre, confirmed the MP's hospitalisation via Facebook, as did lawyer Morris Kimuli.
"The story here is not about how Kathiani MP Hon. Mbui went down in this ditch for a cause, like a true patriot. It is about those hands reaching out to draw him from the ditch. Humanity is spontaneous. It needs no bidding. It is portraits like this that truly deserve the caption 'I am my brother's keeper,'" Kimuli wrote in a Facebook post, accompanied by a photo from the event.
The police officer who beat the MP was not immediately identified, but the MP was reported to have hurt his leg.
