However, the accused MCA refuted the claims, dismissing them as mere propaganda. He asserted that the altercation was limited to verbal exchange, denying any physical altercation.

The accused MCA emphasized that testimonies from witnesses present at the meeting could corroborate his statement.

This incident follows a series of political turmoil in Laikipia County. Notably on February 21, when physical fights erupted among MCAs during Assembly proceedings.

The chaos ensued over plans to oust Minority Leader Sammy Lekopien Parletto, sparking protests and a clash between opposing factions within the Assembly.

Amidst the turmoil, allegations of procedural irregularities surfaced. The supporters of the Minority Leader were contesting the sudden motion of impeachment without prior communication.

The volatile situation culminated in a duel between the deputy speaker and the Speaker, further escalating tensions within the county legislature.
