Twenty eight MCAs from Trans Nzoia County were de­tained at a ho­tel in Athi River town on Satur­day. They were de­tained at In­ter Leisure Ho­tel af­ter re­port­edly fail­ing to clear their Sh578,050 bill. They had checked in on Au­gust 24.

“We de­cided to lock the ho­tel’s main en­trance to deny the MCA exit af­ter we got in­for­ma­tion that they had planned to es­cape at 5:00am with­out clear­ing their bills,” a staffer told the Star at the ho­tel on Satur­day.

The staff, who sought anonymity for fear of vic­tim­i­sa­tion, said the MCAs claimed their ex­penses were to be set­tled by the Water CS Eu­gene Wa­malwa.The CS dis­tanced him­self with the MCAs predica­ment.

Wa­malwa said he was nei­ther aware of the ward rep­re­sen­ta­tive’s trip nor their be­ing held up at the ho­tel.
