Police have placed a Ksh.500,000 bounty on each of the five suspects recorded on camera assaulting former Nairobi Central Business District Association (NCBDA) chairman Timothy Muriuki.
According to police, the attackers who interrupted Muriuki’s press briefing on Monday, April 30 at a city hotel have gone into hiding.
The suspected hired goons alleged that Muriuki had organized the press briefing to mudsling Governor Mike Sonko’s administration.
The five are being sought for offences committed in the incident, including assault, damage to property and robbery with violence.
Meanwhile, Governor Sonko, who has been under pressure from critics to show what he has achieved so far in the city, distanced himself from the goons.
During the said incident, the goons stormed the press briefing and roughed up Mr. Muriuki, threatening to throw him into the swimming pool at Boulevard Hotel where the press conference was set to take place.
