Several journalists have on Wednesday been attacked and ejected from covering Nyandarua County Assembly leadership row as MCAs bar Speaker Wahome Ndegwa from chambers.

The assembly's security officers allegedly rained blows, slapped and clobbered the journalists, claiming they were under instructions from the embattled Speaker who has been barred from entering the chambers.

Royal Media Services reporter Patris Simbili has sustained injuries on his head and other body parts.

The first victim was Radio Africa Group reporter Ndichu Wainaina whose press card was confiscated at the assembly's gates.

Kameme FM reporter Jimmy Muguo and Sauti ya Mwananchi journalist Jathan Kamau have also been attacked.
