Starehe Member of Parliament (MP) Charles Njagua aka Jaguar is nursing a broken leg at the Karen Hospital after fighting with county officers at Marikiti Market.

On Wednesday evening 11 July, City County officers went to Marikiti market and arrested five traders among them, the traders association chairman Cyrus Kaguta and confiscated their goods.
