Former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga has described what happened on Monday after presenting himself at the headquarters of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations for questioning.
Njenga stated that when he was at the DCI, Azimio leaders and followers expressed sympathy.
Njenga told the Wiper Democratic Movement prayer meeting in Yatta on Friday that Karua had made calls to assist him.
“When Karua came there, she made calls and at some point, she said we should stand and leave DCI offices and we got up, walked and we were returned when we reached the gate,” Njenga said.
According to the former Mungiki leader, about 2,000 supporters attempted to enter DCI, but Karua calmed them down.
He described how, while sat with his lawyers and Karua, they were told to meet the DCI in another room, but Karua stopped him when he was supposed to go alone.
“I want to thank Karua because she is the one who raised the alarm and went to the gate where there were people and shouted that someone had stolen from her,” Njenga said.
“After that everyone went their own way, I was put in a car and taken to the GSU headquarters. I was thereafter taken to an unknown place and I asked myself where they were taking me.”
Njenga said that after some time, calls were made and he was returned to Nairobi where he was released on free bond.
