In January 2020, he was arrested and taken to Kilimani Police Station to record a statement over allegations of assault.

The lawmaker was reported to have assaulted Joyce Wanja alias Wagichungumwa at Royal Media Services Studios where the two met as panellists to discuss the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.
