A county of assembly Nyamira member (MCA) was charged on Monday with defiling a 17-year-old girl.
Magwagwa MCA Fred Nyachae Omayio rejected the charges before Nyamira Law Courts and was arrested for seven days pending bail decision.
The court heard that the MCA allegedly defiled the minor at a guest house in Kisii city on the night of September 2-3.
Mr. Omayio was also accused of committing an indecent act with a minor contrary to Section 11(1) of the 2006 Sexual Offenses Act No.3.
Through his lawyer Omoke Morara, the accused prayed for release in order to resume his responsibilities and receive blood pressure therapy.
The prosecution however opposed this request saying the MCA would interfere with witnesses in the case.
