Kitui East MP Nimrod Mbai is on the spot for roughing up a Kenya Power engineer who was reportedly seeking to disconnect an illegal power line at the legislator's home in Kitengela, Kajiado County.

In a now-viral video doing rounds on social media, the MP can be seen hurling insults at the Kenya Power officers before repeatedly slapping one of them during the incident which took place on Monday.

Mbai likewise reached for and attempted to draw his gun during his fit of rage.

The KPLC officers however managed to disconnect the power line on Tuesday after arriving on the premises alongside police. 

The boys in blue also arrested two workers employed at the palatial home which is currently under construction.

The power company officials also reportedly recovered a power meter and additional power cables from the Rural Electrification Authority at the MP's home.

The Kenya Power officials claim that the MP had erected an illegal power line at the premises spanning more than a kilometre.

A senior KPLC security officer told Citizen Digital that the illegal power line was dangerous since it was overloading a nearby power transformer.
