If you thought chiefs lost sting and clout, courtesy of the 2010 constitution, which doesn't recognize the said grassroots leaders, then you have obviously not met Langa Langa sub chief George Ng’ang’a.
The leader, last week proved to locals that he still wields massive power, after he literally pulled a high school teacher from a bar stool, frogmarched him away before locking him in a cell at his office for absconding duty.
Ng’ang’a justified his act on the Kivumbini tutor, Charles Mokua, who he said had become a nuisance to society when much was expected from him.
“The teacher reports to school only when he wants, but most of the time he is drunk and always roaming in pubs. What time does he teach?” he posed. “I am tired of complaints from his (Mokua) family.
His wife says their children have not reported to school for Third term yet he is all over bars in Nakuru imbibing hard liquor.”
The sub-chief referred Crazy Monday to Mokua’s landlord Joseph Muchendu who also said the tutor had breached the prevailing peace in the neighborhood and had broken window panes when he quarreled with his wife.
Mokua’s wife, Teresia Moraa said his man was a hostile husband and father who “took to damaging property whenever drunk.”
Nakuru education director Isaac Atebe said the matter was under investigation before any disciplinary action is processed against him.
