Changamwe MP Omar Mwinyi has been sentenced to four years in prison with an alternative of Sh1 million after he was found guilty of assaulting two police officers during ODM party primaries in April last year.
Chief Magistrate Evans Makori said that the evidence that was produced in court by the prosecution proved largely that Mr Mwinyi and his supporters assaulted constables Dennis Nambisia and Agapio Ndwiga.
Makori also said that the evidence showed clear that mwinyi failed to restrain or stop his supporters from causing chaos and disruption during the polls.
The Chief Magistrate also added that the medical report showed that the police officers were badly injured during the attack.
The court dropped seven other charges for the accused, such as interfering with election materials, obstructing election officers and causing violence during the primaries.
