A Murang’a-based journalist was physically assaulted by security officers attached to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s wife, Dorcas Rigathi.

In a video shared by citizzen tv Digital, the rogue officers reportedly attached to Dorcas Rigathi could be seen mishandling the journalist Mwangi Muiruri during a relief food distribution event in Gatanga, Murang’a county.

From the video, one of the plain clothed officers could be seen dragging the helpless journalist together with his colleagues before slapping him.

It took the intervention of one of the journalists to convince the officers that Mwangi was one of his colleagues before he was pushed to the side. It was not immediately clear what led to the confrontations, but it is suspected the scuffle ensued while Mwangi was covering Dorcas Rigathi’s arrival to Kirinyaga.
