Mumias East MP Peter Salasya has been set free after he had been apprehended following an assault against a Kakamega Member of County Assembly on Friday.

The controversial youthful lawmaker was freed on a Ksh.50,000 police cash bail and is set to appear in court on Tuesday, January 16.

Salsya is facing charges of assault, causing physical harm and creating a disturbance in a way that could lead to a breach of peace.

Salasya was on Friday caught on camera slapping Peter Walunya, the area MCA while attending a funeral in Mumias.

In a video that has since gone viral on social media platforms, Salasya is heard imploring the MCA to sit down and after he failed to comply, he landed on him with a hot slap.
