Laikipia North MP has been charged with threatening to torch a police station. Mathew Lempurkel was charged in a Nanyuki court on Thursday morning a day after he was arrested in Nairobi.

The MP had been arrested shortly after facing charges of assaulting nominated MP Sarah Lekorere.

Apparently, Lempurkel had gone to Rumuruti police station on July 31 this year and threatened to set it ablaze if a suspect who was being held there was not immediately released.

He denied the charges and was released on a bond of Sh. 500,000 or a cash bail of Sh. 300,000. He opted for the cash bail.
