There is outrage in Kenya after police officers were captured on camera beating up a female lawmaker with sticks.

The cops assaulted Patricia Mutheu at the Nairobi County City Hall on Tuesday after she and other MPs had attempted to impeach the Speaker amid chaotic scenes.

According to local media the lawmakers were at the assembly hall to serve Speaker Beatrice Elachi with notice of an impeachment motion against her.

They were also to give the speaker a court order suspending the appointment of a new clerk.

14 guns have already been recovered from the chambers, according to the minister who is also seeking guidance from the National Security Council (NSC) over the incident.
