Kisii Nominated Member of the County Assembly Eric Janganya has been released by a Kisii Court after he pleaded not guilty to charges of property damage.
Janganya was arrested on Wednesday afternoon, where he was addressing the media over Tuesday evening chaos at the Kisii County headquarters.
The MCA was charged with malicious damage of property valued at Sh 5 million of which it belongs to the Kisii County government. He is accused alongside others yet to be arrested.
Chief Magistrate Stephen Onjoro released the accused on a Sh 50,000 cash bail or an alternative of Sh 100,000 bond.
The case will be mentioned on December 23, 2020. Janganya is being represented in court by his lawyer Gideon Nyambati.
Janganya is accused to have committed the offence in yesterday’s chaos at the Assembly as MCAs debated on a motion to Speaker David Kombo impeach over abuse of office.
