Ngeno accused Natembeya of sanctioning arrests when the latter was Rift Valley's RC.

Emurua Dikkir member of parliament Johanna Ngeno got the chance to explode his frustrations on Trans Nzoia governor George Natembeya, whom he accused of being harsh back in the day. 

Speaking during a church service in the western Kenya county on Sunday, February 11.

He was among the lawmakers accompanying Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua to St Andrew Kaggwa Catholic Church in Kwanza, Trans Nzoia County.

Emurua Dikkir MP Johana Ngeno.

Ngeno recalled having run-ins with the law, with Natembeya sanctioning the tribulations.

At the time, the governor was the regional commissioner of the former Rift Valley province.

"I cannot go without mentioning about the governor. I expected to meet him in a place not like this because he put me through so much trouble. He arrested me almost nine times in Narok. He would put me in a dilapidated Land Cruiser while arresting me. Therefore he should know his day is coming," he said.

Ngeno was a guest of the state on several occasions over his supposed hate speech.

Natembeya gave up his RC post in early 2022 to vie for the Trans Nzoia governorship.

He garnered 158,919 votes, routing his close competitor Chris Wamalwa of Ford Kenya, who secured 79,020 votes.
