Charles Njagua the Starehe MP has been arrested after being accused of incitement.
According to Nairobi Police boss Philip Ndolo, the charges before Jaguar are linked to him ferrying a mob to Grogan building to unlawfully take possession of shops.
The MP who never misses controversy is in police custody and is being queried over the issue in Nairobi.
“I’m currently at Nairobi area. The charges against me are unclear though they seem connected to Mwariro market. I’ll keep fighting for my constituents. Being a leader is tough but my resolve remains unshaken. Allocations at Mwariro Market have to be fair,” the MP wrote on Twitter on Monday.
Late Last week, a number of traders at Gikomba market were left opless after their kiosks were destroyed by unknown people.
The Starehe MP says the stalls were destroyed by NYS recruits in the company of GSU officers, although the accusations are yet to be substantiated.
“NYS recruits are in Gikomba right now. They’re demolishing stalls that traders had reconstructed after a mysterious fire razed them on Thursday morning. GSU officers are also there protecting the recruits. Is this exercise a sign that the govt was involved in the recent fire?’’ asked Jaguar.
“I ask for an immediate halt to this exercise. NYS recruits should go home. Any security officer present in Gikomba should be there to guard the reconstructed stalls and other properties owned by traders. The govt exists to protect property….not to oversee its destruction.”
Gikomba had experienced numerous fires with no enduring solution being advanced to stop it.
