A newly elected Member of Parliament has found himself in the center of a storm after being captured on camera calling for the rape of a governor in his county.

In the undated video, Kitui East MP, Nimrod Mbithuka Mbai, is captured calling for the rape of Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu, who he accusing of making a similar call.

Mr Mbai, who was elected on a Jubilee Party ticket, claims that Mrs Ngilu had called for the rape of women found dressed in Jubilee t-shirts.

“… Niliskia ata wakisema, kijana akionekana na t-shirt ya Jubilee itolewe, mama akionekana amevaa t-shirt ya Jubilee arapiwe. Kwani Ngilu yeye mwenyewe hawezi rapewi?” Mbai says in part of his speech to a gathering.

The crowd listening to him can be heard cheering and laughing before the MP goes ahead to demand an apology from Ngilu, failure to which, he says, the same action (rape) will be done to Ngilu should she be spotted wearing the t-shirt of a different party (from Jubilee).

Before his election as the area MP, Mr Mbai was the Chief Officer in charge of Agriculture in Machakos County.

He is also a former police officer who was assigned to guard former Cabinet Minister Francis Nyenze.
