Lawmakers have increasingly found themselves on the wrong side of the law after a number of Kisii MCAs were nabbed drinking despite a curfew having been instituted by President Uhuru Kenyatta to curb the spread of Covid-19.
They were rounded up by police officers in April while drinking at a bar in the county during the curfew hours.
They were later taken to Kenya Medical Training College in Kisii for a 14 days quarantine.
