Embattled MPs Alfred Keter and Sonia Birdi are expected to appear before Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission over an incident in which they intimidated and harassed Weigh Bridge officials in a bid to release a detained lorry.

The commission summoned the two to appear before them at Integrity House in Nairobi to answer various questions regarding their conduct at Gilgil.

CID director Ndegwa Muhoro also said they had advised the two legislators to face the officers there because that was where the offences under investigations were committed.

The two MPs had Sunday visited CID headquarters but were told they will be informed on the way forward.

The EACC detectives visited Gilgil weigh bridge Sunday and took statements from officials from Kenya National Highway Authority, police and SGR as part of their investigations into the incident.
They have refused to apologise over the incident.

While confronting the officials, the two MPs claimed that State House comptroller, Rift Valley PC Osman Warfa and chairman of Parliamentary committee on security Asman Kamama and top police officers had called demanding the release of the lorry but the officials there had allegedly refused to respond.
