MP Salasya Presents Himself At EACC Headquarters For Grilling

Peter Salasya, the Member of Parliament for Mumias East, is currently facing questioning from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

He was called in by the commission’s CEO, Twalib Mbarak, to provide a statement regarding allegations of assault and to address inquiries about his public behavior. Salasya appeared at the EACC’s headquarters in Nairobi, accompanied by two legal representatives.

In an interview with Citizen Digital on Tuesday, Eric Ngumbi, the spokesperson for the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), stated that Peter Salasya is undergoing intense questioning.

The focus is on allegations of participating in illicit activities that violate Chapter 6 of the constitution, which outlines the standards of behavior for state officials.

“Based on the outcome of the probe then the commission will determine if there was indeed a violation of the law,” said Ngumbi.

Salasya is currently under interrogation for allegedly assaulting Malaha-Isongo-Makunga Member of County Assembly (MCA) during a funeral on January 12.

A video from the event captured the controversial lawmaker physically assaulting MCA Indimuli after the latter refused to comply with Salasya’s request to take a seat.

Despite Indimuli’s defiance, Salasya proceeded to slap him, with the incident occurring in front of cameras.

Following the altercation, Salasya was arrested, brought before the court, and subsequently released on a Ksh.50,000 bond after pleading not guilty to the charges.

In response to the EACC summon, Salasya, on Sunday, played down its significance, labeling it as a targeted move orchestrated by Kakamega Governor Fernandes Barasa.

“I know the person doing this is this one (Governor Barasa). I want to tell the governor to do his job and let me do mine. I respect you, stop frustrating me. My only problem was KMTC and Mumias Sugar. I have let him be,” the MP stated during a public gathering on Sunday.
