“When I wanted to open the drawer, I missed it and almost fell, I decided to support myself on my shoulders,” Mr Muturi said.

The National Assembly Speaker said he would have sustained serious injuries were it not for his athletic abilities.  

“I was a basketball player in high school and at the university, my athletic abilities helped me avoid further harm.” he added.

He said that he was recovering well after the minor accident.

Mr Muturi broke the news of his injury on Twitter last year.

Deputy Speaker Moses Cheboi was forced to take over the proceedings in the House in the absence of Mr Muturi.
