MP Ngunjiri falls sick in court, allowed to seek treatment

One of the legislators set to be charged with incitement fell sick in the courtroom on Friday morning.

Court proceedings had to be temporarily halted after lawyer Michael Osundwa explained that Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri needed medical attention.

“He is feeling dizzy and could vomit,” lawyer Osundwa told the court.

Immediately, Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale moved from his seat where he was following the proceedings and went to assist the visibly sick legislator.

Senator Khalwale, who is a medical doctor, helped Ngunjiri unbutton his light blue shirt and thereafter led him out before the court proceedings continued amid murmurs.

MP Ngunjiri later returned to the courtroom where he denied the charges of hate speech and incitement to violence.
