Police have launched a manhunt for Embakasi North MP James Mwangi Gakuya who was accused of physically assaulting a woman in Ngara, Nairobi.

The incident reportedly occurred on July 29, with the woman alleging that the MP beat and threw her out of a guest house.

A police report filed at Parklands Police Station indicated that the woman was asked to seek medical attention after being issued with a P3 form.

The two allegedly differed on a promise the MP was yet to deliver.

Law enforcers accused the MP of failing to honour calls to present himself at the police station.

They added that they were yet to arrest him as they did not know his whereabouts nor where he stays.

The woman too failed to provide details of the MPs location and residential home.

“Effecting arrest for the accused has been difficult since his place of abode is unknown even to the complainant.

“The MP has always promised to present himself,”

the papers read.

The second term MP has been in the spotlight for various issues. In 2018, he was arrested by the Ethics & Anti – Corruption Commission officers who accused him of graft.

It was alleged that he broke procurement laws to get businesses for his companies from the Constituency Development Funds (CDF) valued at more than Ksh40 million.
