A female member of Nyeri County Assembly was forced to cut short a bench-marking tour to Arusha, Tanzania after she sustained serious injuries following an attack by a male colleague.
Magutu MCA Pauline Wanjira said the male colleague hit her using a bottle of an alcoholic drink on Wednesday while at a pub in the city.
She said the attack is linked to supremacy battles in the Nyeri County Assembly. Ms Wanjira returned to the country on Thursday for treatment. She sustained injuries on her right eye and hand.
The Ward Representative had in the past accused Kirimukuyu MCA Anthony Dagita of physically assaulting her, but no apparent action was taken by police.
