Ndenderu MCA beaten and injured for supporting Gachagua ‘One Man, One Shilling at an event attended by UDA MPs.

Ndenderu Member of County Assembly David Mwaura, on Monday, sustained injuries after a group of youth beat him up at a public event.

The leaders from Kiambu County had convened to launch the construction of Kiambaa Technical Institute when the mayhem occurred.

Mwaura was attacked for supporting the one man one vote one shilling revenue sharing formulae propelled by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

The event was attended by leaders and the public, most of whom were perceived to oppose the formulae.

In general, 11 members of Parliament from the county (UDA MPs) including Kikuyu’s Kimani Ichung’wah were in attendance.

A video posted online showed tens of attendees clobbering the politician who was later rushed to hospital after sustaining injuries.

He told the press that he was beaten up in the head, ribs, and legs and was stumped while on the ground.

“I was hit in the ribs and the head. I was pushed to the ground, beaten on the legs, and stumped on while lying on the ground,” he stated.

For weeks now, Gachagua has been attracting ire from other leaders for pushing for the one man one vote one shilling revenue sharing formulae arguing that it is the only fair formulae of sharing state resources.

He argued that Mt Kenya ranks among the most popular regions and contributes more votes than many other areas and therefore deserves a bigger allocation.

Other leaders including those from the Mt Kenya region, however, are opposed to the formulae arguing that it is a divisive argument that will destroy national unity.

Ichung’wah asked the DP to pursue uniting the country as mandated by his office.

Other leaders opposed to the formulae are Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru and Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki.
