LSK President Nelson Havi was arrested yesterday by officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) for purportedly attacking his female colleague.
LSK Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mercy Wambua filed an assault complain against Havi with whom she has been having issues recently.
Wambua told police that the LSK president attacked her during a meeting held on Monday.
Talking today, Havi affirmed that he was in fact in the custody of criminal investigators at the DCI headquarters along Kiambu road but dismissed the attack claims.
He blamed Wambui for forcing her way into the boardroom when a meeting was progressing and wanting to record the proceedings which constrained him to shut down his laptop and request her prompt removal from the meeting.
The attack claims came two days after Havi and Wambua were engaged in a fierce verbal exchange further deepening the fights in the LSK.
On Friday last week, Havi accused Wambui for forestalling plans for a proposed audit on the use of allotted assets to the general public as well as being in the office illegally and conspiring with financial institutions to deny members statements of expenditure.
