"My attention has been drawn to reports appearing in the media on the involvement of police officers in assault of Mlango Kubwa MCA at the precincts of Nairobi County Assembly.

"After discussion with the IG, I have been informed that investigation is at an advanced stage," read part of the statement by DPP Haji.

Noordin Haji added that the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) were also involved.

"I have directed IPOA and DCI through the IG to have the matter expedited, and the resultant files forwarded to my office for appropriate action," said Haji.

MCA Patricia Mutheu faced the police brutality on Tuesday at City Hall, Nairobi, during Speaker Beatrice Elachi's impeachment by MCA's.

This was the second time Nairobi MCA's tried to evict Elachi over abuse of office and divisive leadership forcefully.
