Businessman claims Mp’s bodyguards assaulted him

By Cyrus Ombati | March 19th 2015

NAIROBI, KENYA: Two bodyguards attached to Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi are on the spot after they allegedly assaulted a motorist on Ngong Road, Nairobi in a road rage incident.

Businessman Ahmed Saidi reported to police at the Kilimani police station and complained at the Independent Policing Oversight Authority that the officers beat him up at the junction of Kingara Road and Ngong Road on Tuesday morning.

This was during a road rage incident in which the two bodyguards together with a driver had overlapped and tried to force other motorists to pave way for them.

Saidi said he was with his driver and his seven-year old son whom he was escorting to the nearby Riara School at about 7.30 am when the incident occurred.

“They punched me on the nose and chin and one held my leg as they beat me up in front of my son and driver.” Saidi alleges.

Sudi was not in the car at the time of the incident. The bodyguards are said to have been rushing to his Karen home in a four-wheel drive car to pick him up when the drama unfolded.

According to Saidi who has since been issued with a police P3 form that allows police to arrest and charge accused persons with assault, the two bodyguards were incensed after he refused to give way for them.

Kilimani OCPD Peter Katam confirmed the businessman had complained of being assaulted by some two unknown people.

Officials at IPOA too said they are investigating the incident with a view of taking action on the said officers.

Under the law, it is only a police car with a siren , ambulances and fire engines that have a right of way.
